New Toys R Us Computer Listings - Age of Extinction Platinum Editions and More
Posted by News Fetcher on April 24 '14 at 11:46 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member jru42287 has learned of some interesting new entries in the Toys R Us computer system.

The first of these entries, with a retail value listed of $129.99, is a "Transformers MV4 Optimus Trailer Platinum Edition" which by the sounds of it is a Platinum Edition version of Age of Extinction Optimus Prime complete with trailer. An image is shown with the listing, showing a more detailed truck mode than we have seen so far with a Generation 1 inspired trailer, although the image might be a placeholder.

Second is another Platinum Series set, titled "Breakout Scene". This set curiously has a Generations Skids pictured with it in spite of being explicitly labelled as "TRA MV4", or Transformers Movie 4. The Skids is colored to look like the Sonic rally car, though may be a placeholder since he's a non-movie toy. The set is listed as $59.99 which implies there may be more to it than just this one Deluxe - although we may never know, since it is in "D" status, suggesting the set has been discontinued. This may mean it is not happening, or just that it is not yet fully confirmed.

Lastly there are two more sets of listings, one set for Transformers Age of Extinction Leaders and one set for Transformers Generations Leader class toys. Both sets of listings feature three toys listed - which in both cases covers the two known Leaders (Grimlock and Optimus Prime for Age of Extinction, Megatron and Jetfire for Generations). There's no information on who the third Leader for either line is, though, but rumors are that the third Age of Extinction Leader may be a reworked Dark of the Moon Leader Bumblebee.

Transformers Hero Mashers Grimlock and Strafe with Bumblebee Two-Pack Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 24 '14 at 11:31 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Transformers Colombia, we can share with you a first look at some upcoming releases in the Transformers Hero Mashers series. Two new releases for the series are revealed - an electronic Grimlock set, based on the Generation 1 dinosaur mode with a light-up mouth, and a Strafe with Bumblebee two-pack. Both sets are fully interchangeable with other Transformers Hero Mashers releases, which means you can create oddities like an Optimus Prime with Bumblebee legs and a Grimlock head (that lights up).

Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus Price Update from BigBadToyStore
Posted by News Fetcher on April 24 '14 at 07:45 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Our collecting community has been buzzing with the recent prototype images of the highly anticipated MP-22 Ultra Magnus! Continuing the exciting news, we just received word from our friend and sponsor BigBadToyStore that the original price of this figure (which was slated at $279.99 this past year) has been reduced to only $189.99 (check out the preorder here)! This price reduction is based on the 19,440 Yen retail price in Japan.

Although this is fantastic news for everyone's wallet, please be advised the price is still subject to change if the MSRP raises above the 19,440 Yen. The good news still stands though, we possibly can expect to see a final price much lower than we originally thought.

Be sure to continue the discussion in the Masterpiece Ultra Magnus thread here and keep it locked on TFW2005 as we update you with any new reveals!

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2000
Posted by News Fetcher on April 24 '14 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As the 21st century dawned full of promise, the Beast era reached its conclusion, and with it the long running continuity that had begun with More than Meets the Eye Part 1 in 1984. The Beast Machines toyline was released in full force, though by the time there was substantial product on the shelves the first season of the cartoon was already finished and the second season was well underway. 2000 also brought the final four releases in the Beast Wars line – the Mutants – and brought back the Dinobots as a subline of the Beast Machines toys. Meanwhile Takara decided to go their own direction, moving away from beasts and instead running with a new series about a group of car robots.

Generations 2014 Deluxe Toys Update - Crosscut, Arcee and Chromia Delayed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '14 at 01:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have been contacting people who have ordered Transformers Generations 2014 Wave 3 - the Crosscut, Rattrap and Tankor assortment - to advise them that Hasbro has cancelled the assortment in its current form.

Important thing to note, these toys will still be released, but spread over future assortments.

Rattrap and Tankor have already been solicited in a new assortment and we understand these two are still coming out as originally planned - Crosscut, however, has been delayed to a future assortment.

Hasbro has not offered an explanation for the change of assortment - but given the well-documented issues with the Skids mold having swapped hips and weak balljoints on the hips on its original release, it is possible that Crosscut has been pulled while Hasbro tightens up QC to make sure the issues that affected Skids do not affect his redeco.

Update: We have also learned that Big Bad Toy Store has been asked to remove preorders for assortments containing Arcee and Chromia, as these toys have also been delayed from their original planned release.

Read on to view the full text of the update from Big Bad Toy Store.

Transformers Age of Extinction One Step Changers Variant Packaging

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of some new photos posted on Transformers Colombia, we have a look at some new, alternate packaging for the Transformers Age of Extinction one-step changers. This alternate packaging forgoes the window packaging we have seen previously, instead removing the windows for the boxes for larger artwork of the characters themselves. Check out the images attached to this post.

Transformers Colombia have also shared new images of the Age of Extinction Power Battlers Optimus Prime figure, and the Flip and Change Autobot Drift. You can also check out images of those attached to this post - and check out the face of this new Drift toy, he looks very much like Guy Fawkes from V for Vendetta!

UK catalog store Argos have added a ticking clock to their website, counting down the days to the UK release of the Transformers Age of Extinction toyline, which from the countdown is anticipated to be 12 May.

What may interest our UK readers though is that the text accompanying the clock states that Argos will have some exclusive lines of merchandise and / or toys. It is not clear exactly what this means - but UK fans might want to keep an eye on Argos for some choice Age of Extinction releases.
