BotCon Cannonball, TCC Transmutate, and TFSS 2.0 New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on May 07 '14 at 06:45 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
For those collectors waiting on a bit of news on the status of the Transformers Subscription Service 2.0 offered by the Transformers Collector's Club, we have something for you! In an unexpected way, it appears some figures from the Subscription Service, as well as BotCon and the TCC Exclusive figure have been shown off a little earlier than expected.

Courtesy of in hand images from what appears to be a factory leak, we have our first look at the TFSS 2.0 figures Ironfist and Barricade, along with their assembled Micron partners. Also shown are our first images of the TCC Exclusive figure Transmutate in its motorcycle alternate mode. Wrapping up the surprise is an alt mode picture of one of BotCon's box set figures this year: Cannonball.

The good news is with this update we might be able to assume the TFSS figures are closer to being ready to be shipped out to fans. The bad news is, the surprise may have been ruined!

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on May 07 '14 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2013 brought a year of endings and beginnings to the Transformers brand – not only was it the year that Transformers Prime ended, but it was also the year that saw several key members of the Transformers brand team, many of whom had worked on the brand since Transformers Armada or earlier, part ways with Hasbro – but not before unleashing the single biggest Transformer toy ever built. On the front of new beginnings, buzz and hype began to build for Transformers 4, and the Transformers Generations line transitioned to a new “comic pack in” style, bundling IDW’s Transformers comics with the Deluxe class toys.

Age of Extinction Wal-Mart Exclusive Legion Class Toys
Posted by News Fetcher on May 06 '14 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
At last another piece of the puzzle has been revealed! On the leaked Hasbro toy list some time ago, there were a series of listings for something called "Age of Extinction Legion class" in both single releases and two-pack releases. Via the Transformers Facebook page, we now know these releases are a mix of previous Cyberverse Legion figures (both past Movie Legends and Legion Cyberverse, and Prime Cyberverse). The two packs feature some larger toys from Transformers Energon and Beast Wars. It's a very odd assortment! Check out the images attached to this post, 16 in total.

Courtesy of an ebay auction listing, we have our first full look at in hand images of the upcoming Generations Rattrap figure! Beast Wars fans rejoice!

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2012
Posted by News Fetcher on May 06 '14 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In 2012 the Transformers Prime toyline made its debut almost a year after the show first arrived on screens, with Japan also getting a toyline all of its own complete with several Japan-only releases. Transformers Prime entered its second season on the Hub, and a new Transformers show for younger audiences based on the Rescue Bots toys also launched. The Transformers returned to video game consoles with the Fall of Cybertron, with a line of Generations toys released to coincide with it. IDW relaunched its comics as well, with John Barber and James Roberts helming new ongoing series Robots in Disguise and More than Meets the Eye, while Simon Furman returned to the classic Generation 1 comics continuity that began with The Transformers #1 in 1984 in the form of the Regeneration 1 comic series.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via a new listing on Toys R Us' Canadian site and Amazon.ca we have received confirmation that there is a new Rescue Bot toy coming soon to bolster the lineup. Rubble the Haul Bot is the name of this latest Rescue Bot, who was first revealed in the infamous Hasbro customer services product list leak. There are no pictures yet, but from his title, we would imagine he is a dump truck or similar type of construction vehicle. Stay tuned for more information.

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction And Rescue Bots Titan Figures Including The Silver Knight
Posted by News Fetcher on May 05 '14 at 10:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Transformers Colombia Facebook page has been updated with some images from the Titan line for Transformers: Age Of Extinction and Transformers: Rescue Bots.

This is the first time we are seeing Titan figures of Grimlock, Blades, Boulder and the elusive Silver Knight Optimus Prime.

These Titan figures are actually non-transforming doll like plastic figures with limited articulation and should not be confused with the Titan Class which includes Metroplex.

This is the first time we are seeing the Silver Knight in a toy form. It is speculated that this is the third Robot Mode for Optimus Prime in Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

We've mirrored the images with this news post. Check 'em out, after the jump.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2011
Posted by News Fetcher on May 05 '14 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In 2011, Earth went dark – at least, such was the tagline of Transformers 3! Transformers: Dark of the Moon was the third release in the Transformers live-action movie franchise, and rounded out a loose trilogy formed by the first three live action movies. As always director Michael Bay and Paramount delivered a special effects tour de force, this time in 3D! The Aligned continuity continued to grow and gather pace, with the first full season of Transformers Prime and a follow up to the novel Exodus, called Exiles. Hasbro also kicked off their push to expand the appeal of Transformers by introducing a new Playskool Heroes Transformers series, Transformers Rescue Bots, and they also introduced the new building-block system Kre-O, which was all about Transformers. Amid all this, Takara-Tomy rolled out a new Masterpiece Convoy, the MP-10 Convoy Version 2, which was a new and smaller interpretation of Optimus Prime in the Masterpiece series, setting the trend for a whole line of new Masterpieces…

Age of Extinction Construct Bots Dinofire Grimlock and K-Mart Electronic Titan Optimus Prime Images
Posted by News Fetcher on May 04 '14 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Colombia strikes again, this time with official images of Construct Bots Age of Extinction Dinofire Grimlock and a K-Mart exclusive electronic Titan Optimus Prime.

The Titan Optimus Prime as noted is a K-Mart exclusive release. It's one of the super-simplified non-transforming toys that Hasbro has been developing for this movie line, with very primary plastic colors - red upper torso, and blue legs. It's apparently got some sort of electronic sound effects, and also comes with Optimus' sword.

Discuss on the Boards!


The Construct Bots Grimlock we saw on show at Toy Fair 2014 in February. It's the largest Construct Bot to date, with light up electronic features and a mini Optimus Prime to ride on his back. These are the first official pictures of the toy that we have seen.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2010
Posted by News Fetcher on May 04 '14 at 04:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As Transformers entered its 26th year, a new continuity dawned. Dubbed “the Aligned Continuity”, it was a multi-media reboot of the franchise comprising the novel Transformers Exodus, the video game Transformers War for Cybertron, and the new fully CGI animated cartoon series Transformers Prime. The toyline transitioned from toys based on Revenge of the Fallen to a newly rebranded “Transformers” line, commonly referred to as Hunt for the Decepticons. Combiners got a whole line dedicated to them – sort of – with Power Core Combiners, and Classics returned for a third outing with the Transformers Generations line. IDW’s Transformers comics continued, with two very important miniseries released alongside the ongoing comic – Last Stand of the Wreckers by Nick Roche and James Roberts, and the movie continuity based miniseries Transformers: Sector Seven by John Barber.

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction: Meet Lockdown
Posted by News Fetcher on May 03 '14 at 07:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Automobile News Site; The Fast Lane Car had the opportunity to review the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 used for the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

The car in question is the Vehicle Mode of Lockdown; a bounty hunter with a thirst for Autobot blood (well… Energon).

According to the site:
"Not only does the Aventador LP 700-4 has the presence of a stealth fighter or a transformer, but it will also give you goosebumps with that exhaust note! Never mind the 700 horsepower @ 8,250 rpm from the 6.5L V12, the 7-speed automated manual transmission, and Haldex IV all wheel drive."

By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Thanks to TFW2005 boards member Megatronus209 we have our first confirmation of the Grimlock Street Attack Kre-O set being purchased at retail! The set was purchased at a Toys R Us in Times Square with retail price of $19.99. AOE retail products have been cropping up almost daily now so if you have time to spare this weekend try your luck by hunting for some new Transformers merchandise at your local retail outlets! Be sure to utilize our sightings forum and let fellow collectors know what you find!
