30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1994
Posted by News Fetcher on April 18 '14 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
While 1993 was the resurrection of the Transformers brand in the US with Transformers Generation 2, it was 1994 that was its true renaissance. A very important innovation was added to the line in this year – full articulation! No longer were the Transformers just vehicles that turned into robots – now they were full-blown and fully poseable action figures! Elsewhere the Transformers Generation 2 comic concluded on a cliffhanger, and at Fort Wayne, Indiana, a group of fans gathered for a tenth anniversary party for the Transformers. The name of that party? Botcon…

IDW My Little Pony issue #19 Transformers Variant Cover
Posted by News Fetcher on April 18 '14 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In a callback to last year's variant cover, IDW has revealed it is doing a variant cover for its upcoming My Little Pony #19 crossing over Transformers and My Little Pony. The cover features Starscream with an awkward smile alongside Rainbow Dash.

The cover states it is a convention exclusive edition although information is presently unavailable on where it is exclusive to. We would guess like the previous cover though this will be available from the IDW booth at the summer conventions, including Botcon and San Diego Comic Con.

Big thanks to Equestria Daily for breaking this news.

New Rise of the Dark Spark Preview from Game Informer
Posted by News Fetcher on April 17 '14 at 12:31 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
If you are like me and somehow have a subscription to Game Informer, you might have received the newest issue in the mail! While the cover may be for Epic Games' Fortnite, taking a peak inside to say... Page 71 in the previews section will show you the newest preview at the latest Transformers video game.

To begin, we are given some of the first vague details about WayForward's Nintendo 3DS version of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. The game, as previously announced, is a grid-based tactical RPG (Think Advance Wars, or even Super Robot Wars) featuring over 50 Transformers characters. Game producer Andy Owen has stated that "Players will plot their next move on detailed strategic maps, and then engage in epic one-on-one 3D Battle sequences." A screenshot of the 3DS version has also been shown, and attached to this story.

The console and PC version of Rise of the Dark Spark has some new details as well. First, the two worlds (Movieverse and WFCverse) are connected by an ancient relic known as The Dark Spark. This relic acts as a portal between the two universes and is capable "Bending the fabric of the universe to (the wielder's) will." It has now been confirmed that the Movieverse portion of the game will take place during and after Age of Extinction, whereas the WFC/FOC portion will take place BEFORE the launch of the Ark in Fall of Cybertron. The gameplay is very similar to Fall of Cybertron, in that the story is focused on a single character and will bounce back and forth between over 40 playable characters.

Masterpiece Star Saber Update From Takara
Posted by News Fetcher on April 17 '14 at 09:45 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
We're all eagerly awaiting news of the fan voted Masterpiece Star Saber and today we got just a small tidbit of news tweeted out earlier today by Takara. Here's the good news, it looks like the development of this figure has moved past the design stage and judging by the loose translation of the tweet, development of the figure is moving forward. The design sketches that were tweeted we've previously reported on.

What does this mean for the time frame for Star Saber to be released? We can't be certain, but with the design stage done we can only guess that next year is a possible release date (although let's keep our fingers crossed for a quick, flawless turnaround!).

Check out the translation and discuss after the jump!

Linkin Park Is Not Working With Steve Aoki For The Soundtrack Of Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on April 17 '14 at 05:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
In a recent Tweet Out episode on Geek Nation, Linkin Park band member Joe Hahn mentioned that they will not be working with Steve Aoki for the Soundtrack of Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

When asked by a fan "Are you in Transformers with Aoki? Yes or No?" Mr. Hahn responded (after putting a lot of thinking to it) with a clear "No".

However, with his short answer it's unclear whether Linkin Park is in or not for the soundtrack of Michael Bay's Transformers 4. But his tone suggests that there is a possibility of them delivering a song for the end credits.

Now we can finally put the Linkin Park – Steve Aoki Collaboration Rumor to the dustbin.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1993
Posted by News Fetcher on April 17 '14 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
1993 arrived and Transformers were back! Transformers Generation 2 arrived in force, with a mixture of recolored and retooled old toys, and some brand new toy designs as well. For the first time since 1988, there was a Transformers cartoon on screens in the US in the form of repackaged Generation 1 reruns, and it was all topped off by the return of Transformers to comics, complete with a crossover with G.I. Joe to kick the series off. While the line was over in Japan at this time with no new toys released, Europe and the other international markets continued to lead the way for Transformers toys, with a wider range of toys released.

Iron Factory EX-02 Unofficial Slammer and Sixgun add-ons for Generations Metroplex
Posted by News Fetcher on April 16 '14 at 11:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Third party group Iron Factory have revealed an upcoming project on their Weibo to produce an unofficial Sixgun for Generations Metroplex. You might be thinking "big deal, TFC / Before & After / X-2 Toys already did that" but this one is a bit different - for one, Metroplex's tank drone Slammer is also coming along, and both of these Slammer and Sixgun drones are around Legends size like the Scamper included with Metroplex already. Unlike other efforts, the Sixgun splits up into a series of smaller guns to power up Metroplex rather than just give him one big gun, and the set also includes a pair of additional tank drones, each of which splits into five smaller weapons to further arm Metroplex, or other Generations toys.

It's an interesting project, check out the images attached to this post.
