Posted by News Fetcher on June 09 '14 at 08:46 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Facebook page The Ragin Nation has posted a new Render of Transformers: Age Of Extinction Bumblebee.

Very much like his new 2014 Concept Camaro Vehicle Mode, this new Bee is sleeker than his previous versions. Based on the image, it's clear that the new Bumblebee Battle Mask is unmistakable inspired by the head of an actual Bumblebee.

No Transformers Live Action Movie is complete without a Coloring & Activity Book. This time ChirpyBird has published the Transformers: Age Of Extinction Coloring & Activity Book under the License of Hasbro.

2005 Boards Member pie125 has found 2 books and both of them are filled with cool stuff to keep your little kid(s) entertained.

The book even has some Bios of various characters in the movie but we already know the details. What's interesting is that the name "Bulkhead" is among a list of words on a Word Search game.

We've mirrored the images. Check'em out, after the jump.

TFW's Generations Tankor Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in our new Transformers toy galleries, we've got a look at Generations Deluxe Tankor to share with you. "Fat Tankor" as he is known (though not to his face) is a part of the upcoming Generations 2014 Deluxe Wave 3 along with Rattrap, an assortment which celebrates the Beast era of Transformers.

Tankor is a homage to the Beast Machines Vehicon general Tankor, whose initial Mega class toy in 1999 was extremely cool but very inaccurate to the show model. This version of Tankor is much closer to how Tankor looked on the show, with the possible exception of his short legs. Tankor's transformation is very simple, yet works extremely well and has no excess vehicle parts hanging off the robot mode, which is a rarity among Transformers toys. Tankor is also very nicely poseable. His transformation rules out waist rotation, but almost everything else you could ask from a Deluxe class toy is there and is unimpeded giving a great range of motion. The articulated claw hands are a nice touch and let Tankor get a grasp on extra weapons, other Transformers... it's a really cool touch. The tank cannon is attached with a c-clip, but does not have to come off to transform. The only thing that would have been nice with it would have been if it could have rotated to aim at targets around the tank mode, rather than being fixed straight forwards.

Overall, Generations Tankor is a very cool representation of the Beast Machines character. He's a toy who is squat but powerful looking, and a lot of fun to play about with, pose and transform. He's not yet arrived at US retail, but while you wait, please check out our gallery to see what you think of this release:

Takara-Tomy announces Transformers Legends - new line celebrating 30 years of Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 08:01 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have updated their website with the announcement of a new line of Transformers toys. The line is named "Transformers Legends" but should not be confused with the Legends size class or the mobile game from Mobage. This line, Transformers Legends, is billed as "various characters who have appeared in the 30 year history of the Transformers, getting new releases with a modern interpretation and modern technology" (our paraphrasing of online translations)

The first two releases in the line have been revealed as Rattrap and Optimus Primal, from Beast Wars - and you might notice that for this line Takara-Tomy has reverted to the original Japanese names, so these two are being called Rattle and Convoy, respectively. Rattrap / Rattle is the new Generations Deluxe class toy, while Convoy is the original Beast Wars Ultra class toy, using the remolding from the 10th anniversary Golden Disk reissue set.

Given the billing of the series - that it is a celebration of characters from throughout the 30 years of Transformers - it seems likely that this line will also see some characters from other lines as well. We'd guess that the likes of the Generations Leader Jetfire and Deluxe Tankor will ultimately find a home in this line too. As always, watch this space for more news.

Rattle and Convoy, the first releases in the line, are due to arrive in October 2014.

First Look At Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark Nintendo 3DS Edition - Images & Information
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 05:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Video Game News Website Silicone Era has published an article with in depth information about Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark Nintendo 3DS edition.

Developed by WayForward Technologies for the Nintendo 3DS, this version is a Strategy RPG unlike its Console counterpart which is a third person shooter. This game is highly reminiscence of Glu Mobile's turn based tactic game; Transformers G1: Awakening.

"The melee combat is a turn-based combat experience, where one of your units can go toe-to-toe with an opponent,” WayForward said to us. “There will be three rounds to do as much damage as possible before the round ends. If you’re successful and deplete your opponent’s health, they will be removed from the map."

Transformers G1: Awakening was the perfect Transformers game for mobile. After all these years, the game still has an excellent replay value. It's clear that WayForward Technologies took the right decision to follow Glu's footsteps.

Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark 3DS Version Details
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Siliconera has posted a preview article for the Wayforward developed Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark strategy RPG for the Nintendo 3DS. The game looks set to play out in a similar fashion to the Fire Emblem or Advance Wars series, with you able to move units on a 2D grid, while the skirmishes between units play out in 3D cutscenes.

What is revealed here are some of the mechanics that underpin the gameplay of the title. Each character will have seven different attacks of varying strength, each one needing an escalating number of points to use. A point is earned by a character each turn, with bonus points awarded for blocking enemy attacks. Part of the strategy sounds set to revolve around picking whether to employ low-level attacks to harass enemies, or to take a few rounds to stock some points to bring out a more powerful attack. Each character is also going to have a character-specific super move, which is activated by using a specific amount of Energon, which is limited for each mission, so you need to think carefully about which moves you use. One of the example super moves given is Optimus Prime's Vanguard ability, which makes enemies focus on Optimus to give other allies time to withdraw or regroup.

The first of the pair advertises Transformers Age of Extinction and has a giant shot of Bumblebee in his new form on the size of the double-decker bus. The other is advertising the Transformers 30th Anniversary Expo in Macao, and features the robot modes of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in their robot forms from the first three live action Transformers movies.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Facebook page for Jagex's Transformers Universe has updated with a new piece of concept artwork. This concept shows the newly-revealed Autobot warrior Sparkscape, a warrior who makes use of fire through his devastating napalm attack. Sparkscape is shown amid an oil field - harking back to the earliest days of the Transformers franchise when the Autobots would have to defend oil fields from the Decepticons who would plunder them for Energon.

Tom Scioli and John Barber Transformers VS G.I. Joe #1 Creator Commentary
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 02:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Multiversity Comics have posted a detailed and in-depth creator commentary with John Barber and Tom Scioli about Transformers VS G.I. Joe issue #0, the Free Comic Book Day special edition. In this creator commentary we have a look at some of the initial process drawings which were created by Tom Scioli to help shape the style of the series. We're also told about a few of the creative process decisions on the series, such as having Cobra Commander gun down some greenshirt Joes to establish him as a thread, and the decision to have a talkative, handsome Snake Eyes rather than his traditional depiction - which of course we may be getting later on. There's also an interesting glimpse of the original idea which was to have Bumblebee be the only Transformer to turn up, and the wounds the various Joes took be the result of a misunderstanding.

It's an interesting insight into the creative process behind what is destined to be a divisive ongoing series - check it out for yourself for the full details.
