RUMOR: Transformers Universe Toys?
Posted by News Fetcher on April 08 '14 at 11:16 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
We'll need to file this one as a rumor for now, but none the less it's very interesting to read that Jagex, the makers behind the online video game Transformers Universe could possibly be hinting at a few toy releases from the video game.

In a recent interview with GamesBeat Jagex chief executive officer Mark Gerhard was quoted saying “[Hasbro] has taken a number of bots we’ve created and turned them into a toy line.”

We're not sure what the comment is referring to exactly, or if we fans are reading into things too much. This could possibly be referring to toys such as Thundertron, Ironhide and Rumble that were released in the Prime toy-line.

Could this rumor be the start of a few new Generations figures? An entire toy-line of sorts? We're not sure yet, but keep it locked here on TFW2005 as more news trickles in and check out the full interview after the jump.

They hype has been building ever since BotCon revealed their "Classics/Generations" styled Scorponok for this year's BotCon.

Generations Skrapnel and Reflector - In Hand Images!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 08 '14 at 02:00 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
TFW2005.COM member Acesan dropped by to show us some in hand images of the recently-released Generations Skrapnel and Reflector! These images give us many angles of these figures, as well as a comparison with the original Generation One Shrapnel, showing us that these figures are very similar in size. Also, Skrapnel is very faithful in comparison with its G1 counterpart, and (as member Jalaguy notes) the Reflector weapon accessory transforms into a gun that looks very reminiscent of the original grenade launcher!

With these figures now showing up in the Philippines, will a US release be far behind? Let's hope not!

Hasbro Transformers Promotional Material – Age Of Extinction Concept Art, Merchandise, TF5 And More
Posted by News Fetcher on April 04 '14 at 10:45 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Hasbro Transformers license holder Vilsco Textiles is providing a treasure trove in content from the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Thanks to the site, fans are treated with Concept Art featuring not only Optimus Prime and Bumblebee but also Hound, Drift, Lockdown and Grimlock.

The content also sheds light on some key factors such as Hasbro's upcoming plans for the franchise as well as how the Transformers 4 Toy Isles will look like.

Regarding the concept art, it is clear that the characters had not undergone major changes considering their final looks we see these days. Also among the concept art is the elusive Silver Knight Optimus Prime. There seems to be a moment where Optimus activates or bonds with Grimlock (kind of like what happened in Eragon/How To Train Your Dragon) in the movie. And the Hound concept art is similar to the Transformers: Prime Bulkhead concept art we saw back in 2010. Speaking of years... the concept art dates back to 2012, indicating that they have started working on the 4th movie as soon as the 3rd was over.

Moving onto Hasbro's plans. In 2017 we will see Transformers 5. The placeholder logo for the 5th Movie is included with the plans. Video Game news we've heard before and there will be 2 new Animated Features planned for the first quarter of 2015 and for the first quarter of 2016. The cartoons feature new faction logos and that's something worth investigating into. The cartoon will run for 2 years, bridging the gap between Age Of Extinction and Transformers 5 just like what Transformers: Prime did.

Other than these contents, you’ll also find some upcoming merchandise such as earphones, USB Chargers, Keyrings etc. as well.

Checkout the cool images we've mirrored, after the jump.

According to Mr. Hazard, prototype pictures will be available next week. This figure will be produced by an as of yet unnamed 3rd party group. Moonraker will be scout sized and come with a small turret to operate, which is compatible with Generations Metroplex.
