Bold Forms Unofficial Megatron and Motormaster First Prototype Images
Posted by News Fetcher on August 19 '14 at 10:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Third party group Bold Forms have shared some new images of prototypes of their unofficial takes on Motormaster and Megatron, aka Lone Wolf and Gladius. From these images we can see the Megatron has a Generation 1 style robot mode with a tank alternate mode - much like the upcoming Hasbro Leader class toy - while the Motormaster seems to be a Masterpiece scaled version of the Generation 1 toy with some extra details included.

Discuss the Lone Wolf / Motormaster images here, and the Gladius / Megatron images here.

Transformers G1 Cartoon Soundtrack Restoration Project Kickstarter
Posted by News Fetcher on August 19 '14 at 09:45 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
TFW2005 would like to alert the fandom to a pretty cool Kickstarter going on right now. The project aims to restore the Generation 1 cartoon soundtrack music to the best possible quality it can be.

To date, music from the series has never been officially released in any form. This is probably because much of it appeared in many different shows, and not all Hasbro owned properties. You can find a lot of it in Jem, G.I. Joe, Transformers, and even Spider-Man. Basically, anything Marvel/Sunbow produced. Licensing rights and royalties are probably a nightmare.

Any extended pieces of music were stitched together by cutting uninterrupted 1/2/3/4/5 second clips right from the DVDs until you had something resembling a song. This is tedious, hard work. Listening to over 2000 hours of episode audio just to pull maybe 30 minutes out in 1 second intervals is crazy and awesome. This was done over the last several years by Grimbot, who shared his work via TFCog.

I personally did this myself, though not to this extent, so I know how hard it can be. Back when TFW2005 started, one of it's main purposes was a way for me to share the Transformers focused music remixes I did, most using background clips I cut out of the show. Tho back then, I pushed a VCR into a microphone-in jack and recorded entire episodes at a time to the computer as WAVs, then cut out clips in Sound Forge. I constantly ran into situations where a footstep, computer beep, start of a sentence, breathing, wind, - you name it, would interrupt my clip and ruin the loop. Having this software or this mix 14 years ago would have been awesome.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 30th Anniversary Cover by John-Paul Bove and Casey Coller
Posted by News Fetcher on August 18 '14 at 02:15 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
IDW Transformers colorist John-Paul Bove has posted a new Transformers: Robots in Disguise #32 30th anniversary variant cover on his Tumblr. Drawn by Casey Coller and colored by John-Paul. Among others, the cover mainly features Unicron, Optimus Prime, and Scorponok. Bove also had this to say about it:

"So finally I can reveal this cover and it is possibly my favourite single image I have worked on. This is one of my favourite moments in all of TF history and I wanted to have Unicron swept up in fiery hell and Optimus and Scorponok to be in a cool and contemplative hue. A still moment contrasted against a firestorm. Hope you dig it!"

Check it after the jump, and don't forget to pick up RID #32 when it releases in two days on Wednesday, August 20!

Topeam Third Party SD Transformable Jazz
Posted by News Fetcher on August 18 '14 at 12:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
While there is no denying that super-deformed Transformers - that's Transformers with heads much larger than their bodies - is a niche area of collecting, it is one that is getting steadily filled out both officially by Takara-Tomy and their Q Transformers, and unofficially with unlicensed third party releases.

The latest addition to the third party side of the equation is Topeam, who are making an SD and fully transformable Jazz figure. And yes - we are informed that disproportionately huge noggin does not need to be removed as a part of the transformation. Check out some images - coming at you via the TFClub Weibo feed - after the break.

Oreo Transformers Giveaway - Scorn and High Octane Bumblebee
Posted by News Fetcher on August 17 '14 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via the Transformers Colombia Facebook group, we can share some additional news on the Oreo Transformers giveaway currently taking place in South America. From what information we have learned from the posts of Black Convoy in the Facebook group, the promotion runs by giving away stickers in specially marked Oreo packs - with each sticker featuring a code that can be input on to the Ganaoreo site.

By accounts it seems that all four of the Deluxes in the first assortment are up for grabs - that's Scorn, High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs and Slug - but none of them come with their weapons other than Bumblebee's missile. There are also posters and stickers being given away as a part of the promotion.

Here's an update that has been a long time coming - our full galleries of the Botcon 2014 show exclusives! 2014's Botcon set theme was "Pirates VS Knights", a concept which boiled down to a new faction being added to the lore - Alpha Trizer's new Knights of Cybertron were introduced, facing off against Cannonball and his Star Seeker space pirates!

We'll be posting these galleries in two parts, and for part 1, we're bringing you a look at this year's boxed set of Scorponok, Cannonball, Ferak, Ginrai and Devcon - five toys that all stand on their own as great designs (especially the Scorponok). We'll also be giving you a look at the attendee exclusive, Flamewar, and the completed customization class figure, Primal Prime.

Kelsey Grammer Explains A Deleted Scene From Transformers: Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on August 16 '14 at 11:15 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
2014 is a great year for Kelsey Grammer. And he sat down with Yahoo to talk about it. This is what he had to say about Transformers: Age Of Extinction…

Grammer had to leave the Transformers set to film his Expendables role but said, “Michael Bay was cool about it.” Like Stallone, Bay was also cool about line changes, telling him at one point, “You’re Kelsey Grammer. You can do whatever you want.”

Grammer’s most physical action scene involved throwing a Chinese man out of a car. It was eventually cut, though Grammer explained that Bay isn’t entirely to blame. “It was very violent, and it looked very violent.… Apparently the Chinese government had some input on these things, and they just didn’t want to see a Chinese national get thrown out of the car [laughs] — and then subsequently run over.”

Grammer got a glimpse of the Bay method during the shooting of one action scene as Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, and Jack Reynor were given a shock to the system by the infamously precocious director. “They start running, and Michael did not let them know how big the explosions were going to be. He said to me, ‘Watch this! Look! They’re really terrified. Look how fast they’re running!’”

Posted by News Fetcher on August 16 '14 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hot Toys have updated their website with new official images, plus pricing and an expected release date, for their Optimus Prime - Starscream Version. The debut Transformers release from Hot Toys gives us a typically super-detailed design which Hot Toys are known for, along with some bizarre Starscream themed accessories which we can only assume the Hot Toys Optimus Prime plundered from the unconscious Decepticon Air Commander following a battle.

Like most Hot Toys releases, their Optimus Prime comes with a premium price of $344.99 - but the good news is release is not expected until July 2015, so you have plenty of time to save up. Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have a preorder open now - check it out!

Transformers concept artist Emiliano Santalucia is at it yet again, posting a new Generations Rattrap piece up on his blog. In addition, he also has this to say about the figure:

"Yet another of my Transformers Generations figure designs!
Transformers Generations Rattrap! This was done shortly after Rhinox, Waspinator and Cosmos, and I got to do only the Robot mode. But it's one of my favorite sketches and I love how the toy turned out!"
