By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Transformers (and Godzilla) artist Matt Frank has stopped by to show us a print that will be available at BotCon 2014, titled "All Hail Grimlock"! The piece is drawn by Frank himself, with colors by Thomas Deer. It features space t-rexes from across the ages, showing Grimlock's multiple different incarnations throughout the years (including a certain unfortunate green backhoe).

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction IMAX TV Spot
Posted by News Fetcher on June 16 '14 at 11:00 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
We have yet another TV Spot for Transformers: Age Of Extinction. This one doesn’t have new footage but it goes behind the scenes to look at the IMAX 3D 4K Digital Camera in action.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is the first feature film to ever use the new IMAX3D Digital Camera. Exclusively in IMAX theatres, sequences filmed with the IMAX3D Digital Cameras will be presented in a 1.9:1 aspect ratio – offering moviegoers 26% more of the image than standard cinemas for a truly immersive IMAX 3D experience. The production team on Transformers: Age of Extinction was able to capture major action sequences of the film – including chase scenes and helicopter shots – in high-resolution 3D in a way that was previously impossible thanks to the compact size of the new cameras.

Botcon Countdown - The First 10 Years on eBay
Posted by News Fetcher on June 16 '14 at 10:46 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
It's Botcon week already! Each year we like to count down to Botcon weekend with a look back at the figures we clamor over, and see where they are on eBay. This year is a year of anniversaries. The Transformers are 30, Botcon is turning 20, and Fun Publications is celebrating their 10th show. But today we will look back at the first 10.

The first 10 years were run by the creators of Botcon, The Hartmans (for the most part) along with 3H for a few. That's a whole other story, we're focusing on the toys here. Early on, there were only 1 or 2 a year, very simple repaints for the most part. As the brand grew, so did the toys. Eventually getting new heads and very detailed paint applications. Below is a list of 1994 - 2004. Check out the figures and see if you can fill in your collection, or just check to see where figures you have are selling!



1994
Breakdown

1995
Nightracer

1996

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Possible New Robot Name Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on June 15 '14 at 09:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Los Angeles Times has published an article regarding the involvement of General Motors in the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction. In other words… Product Placement.

The "Transformers" franchise is uniquely suited to automotive product placement because many main characters are cars that change into robots. In the film, a Trax transforms into a robot of the same name. The car appears in a portion of the movie that was shot and takes place in China.

"This is the first big American brand making a play for China via product placement," said Deborah Harpur, chief executive of Mogul Inc., an entertainment marketing agency specializing in product placement. "It's a fantastic platform to do this kind of deal."

Paramount and GM began discussing the appearance of the Trax in the film in late 2012, said LeeAnne Stables, executive vice president of worldwide marketing partnerships for Paramount.

GM indicated that it would soon be launching a new SUV that would target "young, urban twentysomethings." Stables said that in China that same demographic has come of age with "Transformers" movies, making the Trax a good fit for the film.

Casey Kasem Has Passed Away
Posted by News Fetcher on June 15 '14 at 09:00 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
It saddens us here at TFW2005 to bring you the news that voice actor and legendary radio star, Casey Kasem, has passed away at the age of 88. If you were a fan of the original Transformers cartoon, Casey Kasem provided the voices for Cliffjumper, Bluestreak, Dr. Arkeville and Teletraan-1. He was also known for his roles as Shaggy on Scooby Doo and Robin on the Super-Friends. Outside of voice acting, he was known as the host of American Top 40 and had one of the most prolific careers in radio. Unfortunately, the last several months of Casey's life has had it's share in drama. In October of last year, he was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia. A disease often confused with Parkinson's. The disease left Kasem unable to speak. On June 12th, his family took him off of life support, and he passed away earlier today.

Our condolences go out to his family, friends and fans. One last long distance dedication from us here at TFW, thanks for getting Megatron dead set in your view finder!

Crave Online has posted another Transformers: Age Of Extinction TV Spot titled "Dinobots".

We get out first look at the Dinobots Transformation to the Robot Mode.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction is almost here and new footage keeps on coming! Check out this CraveOnline Exclusive TV spot for some all-new shots of the Dinobots in action. The fourth film in Michael Bay's hit franchise stars Mark Wahlberg (The Departed), Nicola Peltz ("Bates Motel"), T.J. Miller (Cloverfield), Kelsey Grammer (X-Men: The Last Stand) and Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), but you know danged well you're only going to see Optimus Prime ride a robot Tyrannosaurus. And as well you should. We've been begging for Dinobots in this series since the first movie but Transformers: Age of Extinction is finally delivering the goods."

Alfes2010 has shared some cool in-hand pictures of the Takara-Tomy Transformers Movie Advanced Dino toy on his Twitter feed. Dino is a retooled Revenge of the Fallen Sideways to represent the Ferrari Autobot from Transformers: Dark of the Moon, who until now has not had a full size toy release. Check out the pictures of this sharp looking new release from Takara-Tomy. Dino is due for a release later this month, although along with Darkside Soundwave it seems he has had an early release at the Tokyo Toy Show.
