Robots in Disguise One Step, Three Step and Warrior Class TV Advert
Posted by News Fetcher on February 10 '15 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Youtube channel has now added an extended - and dubbed - version of the Robots in Disguise TV commercial. It features some nice CGI for Bumblebee and Steeljaw, along with some new soundbites from Bumblebee.

It's worth saying that a shorter version of this TV spot - without the sections talking about the app or the Warrior class toys featuring the different announcer - is now airing on UK TV, so there are at least two versions of this particular TV spot doing the rounds.

Check it out below:

Scribd launches a "Netflix for comics"
Posted by News Fetcher on February 10 '15 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Courtesy of io9, we have this interesting tidbit of news. It seems that online ebook subscription service Scribd has struck a deal with comics publishers to essentially let them become "the Netflix for comics". According to io9, publishers including Marvel, Arcana, Archie, Boom! Studios, Dynamite, Kingstone, Space Goat, Top Cow, Valiant, and of course IDW have signed up to the deal.

While it is unclear what of the various company's entire publication histories will ultimately be available, it is reported that new books will be going up on the service roughly a month after their publication - not bad, for a monthly subscription, and we like the sound of the "binge" button (for when you discover a new title that you just have to read the next issue of, without exiting the reader). TFW member Thelonicon reports that presently some of the issues are in inconsistent places, and there are a few random omissions - hopefully hiccups that will be resolved as the service finds its feet.

Check out the full writeup on io9.

By Mechafire from TFW2005:
The Mary Sue has just put up anew interview with Windblade and Combiner Wars writer Mairghread Scott. In it, she discusses and details both those series, and also reveals a brand new female character - the Mistress of Flame, an important figure in Camien society:

"In fact, we have an exclusive sneak peek at of one of the most important members of Camian society, the Mistress of Flame. The Mistress of Flame is the leader of the only faith on Caminus, The Way of Flame, which worships a female Prime said to be the mother of all Camiens. But fire can be as dangerous as it is helpful and the faith of Caminus burns hotter than any Cybertronian realizes."

Former TF Artist Don Figueroa's Armarauders Project Update
Posted by News Fetcher on February 09 '15 at 01:30 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
A little bit on Non-Transformers news today. Back in 2012 we got word that famed Transformers artist Don Figueroa was involved with a new project called Armarauders. An all original story featuring a comic book and toys based on it was the plan. Don was doing the mecha designs and drawing the books, both things that he excels at.

The comics are now hitting issue 6, and the first figure is set to go up for pre-orders in March. Mecha Workshop is the company producing it, and they've sent out early copies of the figure for review. We've done up a full set of over 140 pics showing the Armarauders Bellerophon in action at our sister site Toyark.com. We hope you'll check it out and see what one of the best Transformers artists to grace our comics and packages is up to now.

Enjoy!

IDW And Hasbro Celebrate 10 Years By Extending Their Relationship - Press Release
Posted by News Fetcher on February 09 '15 at 08:00 AM
By Matty from TFW2005:
We just received the following press release from IDW Publishing marking a huge milestone of 10 years of business with Hasbro, as well as an announcement of extending that relationship for years to come. Starting in 2005 with the rebooted Generation 1 continuity, IDW and Hasbro have enjoyed years of successful comic books from Transformers and other properties. Read on for the full press release and be sure to pick up some Transformers comic books!

San Diego, CA (February 9, 2015) – This year marks the Tenth anniversary of IDW Publishing and Hasbro being in business together, a relationship that began in 2005 with the publication of IDW’s first TRANSFORMERS title. To celebrate a decade of creativity, innovation, and success, the two companies are announcing the extension of their blockbuster relationship.

Once TRANSFORMERS was established as an immediate success, IDW expanded its comic line to include the Hasbro property G.I. JOE, then eventually the smash-hit MY LITTLE PONY and coming this March, JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS! IDW will also continue to publish the LITTLEST PET SHOP and DUNGEONS & DRAGONS comics. These titles have become perennial staples at IDW, and will continue to play key roles in IDW’s publishing slate going forward, in all existing formats, both print and digital. Fans of the line can expect much more of the quality products they’ve come to expect: Comics, Trade Paperbacks, Hardcovers, Micro Comic Fun Packs, IDW Limited collections, and more.

“At this point, I almost feel I’ve run out of superlatives for Hasbro. They remain an absolutely fantastic collaborator on every level,” said IDW CEO & Publisher, Ted Adams. “After ten years in business together, it’s clear what a huge part of our success Hasbro has been, and what an appropriate time this is to solidify our relationship well into the future.”

Thrilling 30 Collectible Figures Blind Pack Series 2 Found At US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on February 09 '15 at 07:00 AM
By Matty from TFW2005:
Thanks to reports by TFW2005 members Squallte and TFfanSean, we know that the Thrilling 30 sub-line of blind pack miniature figures is continuing with the first reported sightings of series 2. Found at Targets in California and New Mexico (upfront near the collectible cards section) were the beginnings of series 2 figures. Unfortunately it doesn't look like there is a code system so you'll have to either go on luck or feel out the bag the best you can.

Happy hunting TFW!

Robots In Disguise Electronic Titan Hero Optimus Prime and Bumblebee
Posted by News Fetcher on February 09 '15 at 06:45 AM
By Matty from TFW2005:
Thanks to TFW2005 boards member Nevermore for linking us to a pair of listings on the Brazilian Hasbro website. Found were listings for Electronic versions of the Titan Hero Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. It appears that these are altered from the non-electronic Titan Hero figures, which were just recently seen at US retail. They also appear to be really easy to miss as the figures are nearly identical as well (comparison images included courtesy of Nevermore).

Check them out after the jump and let TFW know what you think of the still non-transforming Titan Heroes, but electronic packed now.

Final Pictures of TFC Toys Verti-Aid and Combiner Prometheus (Classics Defensor)
Posted by News Fetcher on February 08 '15 at 01:45 PM
By Sentinel from TFW2005:
We have some final images of TFC Toys Verti-Aid (Blades) as well as the finished combiner Prometheus (Defensor), courtesy of board member Cheem The Rup.

Despite Defensor's proclivity for passivity, Prometheus is armed to the teeth with a number machine guns, pulse rifles and a massive mini-gun with which to defend himself and others. He is quite the formidable figure and for those looking to add to their Classics collection, he is quite a worthy and imposing addition.

Scheduled to be released in the coming weeks and hopefully shipping to retailers before the Chinese New Year, Verti-Aid can be pre-ordered through many of our site sponsors:

We have got good news for you! Courtesy of TFW member IceMagnus, we can share a promo that has been airing on Discovery Family Channel announcing that Transformers Rescue Bots will be resuming with new episodes on February 28th. We assume this means that the next four in sequence - starting with season 3 episode 12, "Did You See What I Thaw?", will be airing weekly on Saturdays at 1:30pm EST, although the airdates have yet to be confirmed other than we're getting new episodes from this date.

After a few false starts, it's good to know that we're finally able to look forward to more new episodes of Rescue Bots! Roll to the Rescue!

Prime 1 Studios were out in force at Winter Wonder Festival 2015. As well as the previously mentioned Age of Extinction Optimus Prime and Galvatron statues, the group showed off their upcoming Drift statue, fully painted for the first time.

Also on show were several current and planned releases including the gigantic Grimlock from Age of Extinction, Dark of the Moon Bumblebee, and Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime. There are also several of the smaller character busts on display, including a trio of gold busts previously unseen to our knowledge.

Pictures attached to this story come to you via Autobase Aichi, after the break, there is a Youtube video by Ricci Man Productions of Drift, showing some of the exquisite detail that Prime 1 works into their releases.

On January 10th, Hasbro tweeted a wish to Julian Edelman of New England Patriots for their playoff game with Seattle Seahawks.

Hasbro attached an image featuring a modified Transformers: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Bumblebee with the tweet (included with this news post). The modification was a tribute to Minitron; Julian Edelman's nickname given by Tom Brady.

2005 Boards Member benclark1982 is bringing us a news related to the said figure. On January 23rd, Hasbro has applied for a new Transformers Trademark for the title "Minitron" at the United States Patent & Trademark Office.

Via Autobase Aichi on Facebook, we have a look at two new EX Gokin releases coming soon from Art Storm. The pair are Arcee and Elita-1, and like Art Storm's previous EX Gokin Alpha Trion release, they are non-transforming poseable figures based on the original Generation 1 animation models. Both feature alternate heads - Arcee's sports her "binocular visor" seen during the "Attack on Autobot City" scene from Transformers The Movie.

Autobase Aichi's gallery also includes a fresh look at other items on display at the Winter Wonder Festival 2015, including the ES Gokin Convoy and Rodimus figures, the D-Style releases from Kotobukiya, and the Prime-1 Studios statues.

Kotobukiya D-Style Black Convoy and Starscream Announced

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Kotobukiya have announced another pair of releases in their D-Style Transformers lineup. The first of the pair is only announced via artwork right now, but is a D-Style version of Starscream! If he is like previous releases, expect him to be quite poseable, but non-transforming, and including some accessories based on his TV appearance including a small accessory of his vehicle mode.

Also announced - and shown as a color prototype - is a D-Style Black Convoy. As is the tradition, this is a black repaint of the previous D-Style Convoy figure, and he bears a Decepticon brand - so that's three D-Style Decepticons to one Autobot thus far! The placard with him mentions he will be released in 2015 - our betting is he'll come out before Starscream arrives.
