TFW's Generations Autobot Whirl Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '14 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our latest Transformers Generations toy gallery is now online! Available for your enjoyment today is a look at Transformers Generations Autobot Whirl, who has just started to arrive at US retail.

Autobot Whirl is a great release in the Voyager class. He is a very Generation 1-faithful update complete with stickers to reproduce all the Generation 1 stickered details, but if you dislike stickers, he looks perfectly good without them.

Articulation is good, Whirl has some excellent movement in his shoulders and elbows. His hips and knees also boast some good articulation but take note that the upper hinge on the silver part of the legs is extremely stiff out of the box.

Those who dislike the Movie aesthetic might be disappointed to see that Whirl has “chicken legs”, though they suit the design and are accurate to the More than Meets the Eye comic. Also accurate to the comic is the head design, which is a very pleasing touch.

Whirl comes with a small arsenal of weapons including two missile pods, triple barreled machine gun and a Nul-Ray cannon. Each weapon has a selection of posts and C-clip connectors, allowing you to attach them to Whirl’s different modes and arrange his weapons loadout however you desire.

Overall Whirl is a nice, fun toy. He has three modes to transform into, including an intermediate “heloped” mode, which itself can be arranged with the robot arms deployed or folded away. The helicopter cockpit opens as well, in another nice tough. He’s out now at retail, and well deserving of a purchase, especially for those who are fans of the More than Meets the Eye comic book where Whirl has a starring role. Take a look at the gallery, linked below, to see for yourself.

By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:

How was it for the actor, best known for his roles on The Good Wife and Argo, stepping into the huge Transformers summer movie franchise?
“I’ve now won the hard earned respect of my children because I’m in a Transformers film, and I’ve always wanted to work with Michael Bay and certainly Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer.”

Yesterday, we brought you a report on Hasbro and Innovation First teaming up to deliver HexBug robots based on the Transformers: Age Of Extinction characters. Today, Idle Hands Blog is sharing with us our first proper look at the Products.

What’s interesting about the toys is the product packaging. We are treated with new character images previously unseen. Another noticeable fact is that Optimus Prime is referred as "The Silver Knight". We do not know whether this is a nickname he’ll have in the upcoming movie. Also, we see new images of Galvatron and Stinger.

Product images feature:

Decepticon Lockdown

Decepticon Galvatron

Decepticon Stinger

Autobot Bumblebee

Autobot Drift

Autobot Crosshairs

Optimus Prime a.k.a Silver Knight

The product images also feature accessories, weapons and battle arenas.

Update: 2005 Boards Member tackertackle reminds us that this isn't the first time we've seen the name "Silver Knight" associated with AOE Optimus Prime. Transformers 4 Toy Listing leaked through the Hasbro Official Website lists a toy named TF4 Silver Optimus Prime.

We've mirrored some of the images with this news post. Visit Idle Hands Blog to take a look at the rest of the images.

IDW Publishing bringing back Rom the Space Knight as a Transformer?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 18 '14 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Bleeding Cool News has run an interesting article on a much-loved character from the 1980s, Rom the Space Knight. Rom was a creation of the Parker Brothers, the rights for whom have since passed to Hasbro.

Over the last year, Hasbro has applied for various trademarks on the name Rom, including for a comic book, a "toy capable of converting into other visual toy forms", and a TV show. It is possible that Rom was being planned as a spinoff franchise of Transformers - or a complete entity unto itself, given the existence of a TV show trademark. But then there's the toy trademark - which lines up with the silver Bot Shot (pictured) from Toy Fair 2013.

Bleeding Cool notes that their sources indicate something is happening. With the Transformers comics about to go into a soft relaunch post Dark Cybertron, could Rom be about to join the Transformers? Perhaps the Space Knight is going to be revealed to be a Knight of Cybertron - or perhaps that trademark for a toy, intended for a Bot Shot, will get attached to a Botcon exclusive toy in the 2014 set dealing with Knights and Pirates?

We're just speculating on the rumor here - join in with your own thoughts at the discuss link below.
