Transformers: Rising Mobile Game Soundtrack Info
Posted by News Fetcher on November 23 '14 at 01:15 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Bets testing for the Transformers: Rising (English Version) is now over. Shanghai based outsourcing sound studio GameAudioLab has revealed some info about the game's soundtrack and some samples. Hopefully they’ll release the entire game music album one day.

"Game Audio Lab worked on China’s #1 Transformers game: “Transformers: Rising”.

With stunning music – mix of orchestral and electronic elements – and entertaining futuristic sound effects, our main challenge was to create a unique sound experience for gamers while keeping consistency with the existing Transformers’ audio identity.

This challenge was accomplished within 3 months.

“Transformers: Rising” is now one of the most played and famous mobile game over China, Hong Kong and Taiwai, with monthly revenue of 10 million RMB (approximately 1.67 million US dollars), marking the peak of DeNA China’s revenue of this year."

TFW's Generations Brainstorm In-Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on November 23 '14 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got another great new Generations toy gallery to share with you. This time out, we have a gallery of a Headmaster and the Lost Light's mad scientist in residence - Brainstorm!

Generations Brainstorm does a grand job of updating the chunky original Generation 1 Brainstorm and his boxy proportions with a more modern and decidedly less boxy appearance, based on the More than Meets the Eye comic. It gives Brainstorm a very striking silhouette - this toy looks extremely good in both modes!

Brainstorm is also fun to fiddle with. As with most modern toys, he lacks waist articulation, and his wrists do not rotate, but everything else is there - including ball-jointed head articulation, which is cleverly incorporated into the Headmaster gimmick. Arcana has limited articulation when he's not being Brainstorm's noggin, with just his arms and head (!) being poseable. One word of warning - watch the blue-green paint on Arcana's legs, it seems to chip very easily.

Overall, Brainstorm looks great and is fun to play with. He's one of the most dynamic looking Voyagers to come out what has been an excellent year for the size class, capturing the spirit of the character extremely well and generally being a good, fun toy. Be a smart robin and check out the gallery to see for yourself:

Q Transformers Movie and Generation 1 Series Wave 1 Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 23 '14 at 08:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Autobase Aichi's Facebook feed, we've got some nice official images to share with you of the Takara-Tomy Q Transformers. On show here we have official images of the first waves of both the movie series and also the Generation 1 series.

Each of the figures transforms from a cutesified version of their robot modes into Choro Q versions of their vehicle modes. This is a fitting bit of parallelism, since over 30 years ago before Transformers got started, some of Takara's earlier transforming robot toys were Choro Q vehicles in their Micro Change line - which would eventually become the Generation 1 Minibots. That means the Generation 1 Bumblebee in this series has gone full circle!

The Generation 1 series on show here includes Rodimus, Prowl, Sideswipe and Bumblebee. The Movie series includes Optimus Prime, Crosshairs, Lockdown and Bumblebee. These first two waves of figures are due out next month, in December 2014.

Clarification - Masterpiece Ultra Magnus in Australia
Posted by News Fetcher on November 23 '14 at 07:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Courtesy of TFW2005 member and Ozformers administrator griffin-of-oz, we can post some clarification to our earlier report of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus' release in Australia next year:
<ol>

Kelvin Chan is not the artist for this project, but rather wrote the English language bio of the instruction booklet.

Masterpiece Ultra Magnus is getting a limited Australian release of just 400 pieces. This release is 400 pieces of the Hong Kong / Hasbro Asia release of the Japanese Masterpiece Ultra Magnus, in a similar style to previous releases of other Masterpieces in Australia - such as the original Masterpiece MP-2 Ultra Magnus release.

Masterpiece Ultra Magnus will arrive in Australia in early February, will be released in two batches (250 in February 2015 and 150 on 4 April 2015), and will retail for AU$299.99. He'll be available through Toys R Us Australia.

It should go without saying as this is an import of the Japanese toy, but this does not relate to a US release.
</ol>
It should also be noted this is not a rumor - this is confirmed, via a listing in Toys R Us Australia's computers relayed via Ozformers member Sinnertwin.

A big thanks to Griffin for the clarification!

These new images show this deluxe sized figure in robot mode and sniper rifle mode. In sniper rifle mode he can be wielded by Mastermind Creations' Feral Rex figure.

Masterpiece Exhaust / Marlboor - Unable to be sold in the USA?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '14 at 04:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Troubling news comes to us via our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store. Masterpiece MP-23 Exhaust - who is based on the Diaclone "Marlboro" Wheeljack - apparently cannot be sold legally in the USA.

The problem comes from the fact that Exhaust uses a shape on his design - the rectangle with a triangular portion removed from the bottom - which is alleged to infringe the trade dress of Marlboro & Phillip Morris USA. Under the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, these marks cannot be used on products that could be intended for children.

(You could make an argument for Exhaust being an "adult collectable" as he is a part of the high-end Masterpiece series, but ultimately the wider Transformers brand is targeted at children, and there's where the "could be intended" part swings in and catches this one).

The upshot of all this is that Big Bad Toy Store has been asked to remove listings for Exhaust, and have complied - anyone who preordered has been transferred to a non-public listing on the off chance that Takara-Tomy alters the deco; should this not happen (and this fan thinks it is unlikely) Big Bad Toy Store will refund preorders as they, and potentially other USA based online retailers, will not be able to sell Masterpiece Exhaust in the USA.

Read on for the full text of the email update from Big Bad Toy Store.

RUMOR - Masterpiece Ultra Magnus To Get Hasbro Asia Pacific Release?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '14 at 10:30 AM
By Matty from TFW2005:
An interesting piece of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus news just surfaced via Kelvin Chan's Facebook page. Let's get right to what's been said:

Okay, I can FINALLY reveal my secret now. The work that I did for Hasbro was working on the booklet for the Hasbro release of MASTERPIECE ULTRA MAGNUS. This toy is scheduled to be released in Hasbro Hong Kong's markets first on December 27, with the Australian release being April 2015.

It looks to be exclusive to Toys R Us. Price will be AU$299.99
SKN 086323


Although not much is known about this artist, the information given is worth noting as a rumor for speculation's sake and more importantly: could this mean a US release is coming for Masterpiece Ultra Magnus? Although at this time this is our only source of any effort by Hasbro to release Magnus, this cooperative effort between Hasbro's Hong Kong and Australian branches could bode well for a US release later in 2015 or 2016.

Mark it as a rumor, but join in on the ongoing discussion with the discussion link below!

Steve Jablonsky Explains Why Transformers: Age Of Extinction Score Was Removed From iTunes
Posted by News Fetcher on November 20 '14 at 12:45 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Composer Steve Jablonsky updated his Facebook Page to explain why Transformers: Age Of Extinction Score was removed from iTunes:

"Now because you guys are so awesome, the TF4 score hit 15,000 units really quickly. I honestly had no idea the score had been pulled down until fans started contacting me asking why the soundtrack had vanished from iTunes, only a couple months after the release of the film. I suspected the 15k limit was the reason, a little investigation proved that to be the case."

Kotobukiya have updated their website with new images of their D-Style Megatron. This poseable little Decepticon leader is done in the traditional Japanese super-deformed style and comes with alternate faces for different expressions along with his energy flail and even a little gun mode Megatron.
