Official In-package Images of Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Pop! Vinyl Figures
Posted by News Fetcher on May 02 '14 at 02:16 PM
By Red Goblin from TFW2005:
Entertainment Earth just updated their Transformers section with new official in-package images of Funko's Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Pop! Vinyl figures. The images belong to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Autobot Drift.

We've seen these guys so many times before. We've seen them at their prototype stage, and we got a first finished look at this year's Toy Fair on Funko's display. What's interesting is that, on Funko's Toy Fair catalog, there was a silhouette of a third figure which they labeled as ''Mystery Villain''. And now we see the figure is actually Drift, labeled as Autobot. So the plot thickens.

The figures will be available in May. Check out the images after the jump and be sure to follow TFW as bring you the best news, first.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2008
Posted by News Fetcher on May 02 '14 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Moving from strength to strength, Hasbro introduced a new Transformers cartoon, one that was written in the west and co-produced with Cartoon Network. This new series was called Transformers Animated, and went with a radical change to the established art style of what had gone before, polarizing opinions from the very first glimpse of the series – though clever writing meant it quickly became a well-loved show. Its toyline was delayed, though, thanks to retailers demanding more movie toys on store pegs. Fans who disliked the new take in Transformers Animated were not left out in the cold either, as Hasbro recognized the success of the Classics series and brought out a new Classics styled series under the name of Transformers Universe, which blended redecos with Classics style reinterpretations of the original characters. Last but not least, IDW proclaimed “All Hail Megatron” as they carried out a soft-reboot of their Transformers continuity.

Aker Solutions Operator Chair To Make An Appearance In Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on May 02 '14 at 12:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
According to an article by a Norwegian News Site, Aker Solutions MH OCH 300 Operator Chair has been used for the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction. No, the device was not used to move machinery but the device itself is a part of the movie.

What we are about to say next may be considered as a Spoiler. But by now, we believe almost everyone knows the synopsis of the movie.

For those who don't know about the MH OCH 300 Operator Chair, it is a state-of-the-art operator chair which remotely controls machinery such as Drillers and even Ships. According to the revealed plot of the 4th Transformers movie, humans control man-made Transformers. Now, we all know what everyone is thinking right now… Could this be "that" device?

The manufacturers does not reveal any info. But they had this to say:

"They called on April 1 last year at. 22.30 in the evening. We thought the it was a joke, but responded affirmatively that they could borrow and use the chair in the movie. In June last year we sent two chairs to Detroit and got them back, gently used and without a scratch with enthusiastic comments. Paramount guys were totally "blown away," says Frankt Robertsen."

Ever since we saw the first few Age of Extinction promotional images of Optimus Prime riding Grimlock have you constantly been quietly wishing to yourself, "I wish I could make that image cover an entire wall in my house"? Well, good news everyone! While searching TRU UK's website for Age of Extinction toys, 2005 board member mttyns came across this gym. An 8ft x 10ft wall decal of Optimus Prime riding Grimlock from Walltastic! From the description on TRU UK's website:

Botcon 2014 Comic Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on May 01 '14 at 03:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a preview of the Botcon 2014 comic book. This two page preview of the story penned by Marty Isenberg of Beast Machines and Transformers Animated fame takes a lighter approach to storytelling with some good humor thrown in, and plenty of cameos on the second page of late Generation 1 and Generation 2 characters. The preview comic gives us our first taste of the personalities of the Botcon characters Ferak and Cannonball - Cannonball even lacks one arm in the artwork!

Be sure to check it out at the link above.

Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Deluxe Windrazor Variant?
Posted by News Fetcher on May 01 '14 at 07:15 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
As the Transformers Beast Hunters line continues to release its remaining figures, we've received word of a possible variant figure of the Deluxe Class Windrazor (part of the "upscaled Legions").

The Windrazor purchased uses gray instead of yellow plastic for the torso and overall color pallet has more green and grey plastic for the body. TFW member Avaran has provided some in-hand pictures of the figure along with an image of the packaging that has been unchanged showing the originally released Windrazor.

Will you try tracking this variant down to finish off your Prime collection? Check out the images and sound off after the jump.

The official release date of the Age Of Extinction toys keeps getting closer and closer ... until then we may find some AOE toys on the shelves sparingly, which TFW2005 boards member Grimlockimus just did! We have our first reported retail sighting of the AOE Voyager figures as well as Power Attackers. Found at a Wisconsin K-Mart were the Voyager figures Grimlock and Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, marking this as the first US sighting of the figures. Also seen were Powers Attacker Bumblebee and Hound.

The Age Of Extinction toys are slated for official release on May 17. Happy hunting!

By ORIO from TFW2005:
Courtesy of Action Robo's Facebook page, we have a new image of two of the members of the upcoming new combiner release from Maketoys. Quantron, their version of G1 Computron is estimated to be released June or July. Shown here are Celaritas (Lightspeed) and Blindfire (Strafe) in their vehicle modes in colored plastic. The figures apparently have clear orange plastic weapons. The figures in the set are rumored to come as a set of five, but given the representation here in this photo, maybe we'll see two 2-packs and a singular release for Metalstorm (Scattershot)?

Take a look at the new image after the break.
