Toys "R" Us Exclusives - Optimus 2-Pack and Two Masterpiece Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '14 at 10:15 AM
By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
TFW2005 member Icespark has sent us an exclusive look at some upcoming Toy "R" Us Exclusives! These include the very first look at the Optimus Prime - Then and Now 2-Pack, as well as confirmation on two upcoming Masterpiece figures...Prowl and Sunstorm. I'll let Icespark, who will be heading for surgery (hope all goes well) take it from here...
Quote:
Hi All!

I went and did some final digging about, and, managed to unearth a few last gems. These photos are internal product images of the upcoming Toysrus exclusives: Masterpiece Sunstorm, Masterpiece Prowl, and, the Then/Now styled Optimus Prime two pack.

The interesting thing on Sunstorm is the additional red on his torso.

To my shock, the "Then" version of Optimus Prime, is apparently, the Hybrid Style Convoy figure! I'm kind of surprised to see this, as, I was really, really, expecting the "Ultimate Battle" deluxe Optimus.

This will be the last set of news that I'll be able to provide for a while, as, I'm heading in for surgery, and, will be gone for a long time. Hope you all enjoy!
So read on to check out the images.

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Cinemacon 2014 Sneak Peek Description
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '14 at 06:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
As you all know, Cinemacon 2014 is happening at the moment and Paramount was the first to show off their upcoming releases. During their one and a half hour long presentation, the company revealed 15 minutes of Transformers: Age Of Extinction footage to the audience which mostly comprised of journalists from various entertainment news websites.

Even though they were not allowed to record the footage, they instead wrote-down what they saw.

Our best description of the footage comes from IGN and Cinemablend so far. But we advice those who are sensitive to Spoilers to stay away from the following links.

IGN - "Honey, hand me my alien gun."

Cinemablend - Transformers: Age Of Extinction CinemaCon Footage Brings Dinosaurs, Explosions And More

We'll keep you updated with more info as they happen. And we also thank our members for providing us with links and awesome info.

New MP-21 Bumblebee Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '14 at 08:31 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Well, it would appear that the upcoming recently revealed Masterpiece Bumblebee toy is sure going to be a load of fun to play with! Why, you ask? Well, Takara designer Shogo Hasui has been tweeting his heart out with lots of new images of the figure.
By clicking on the title bar you'll get to see the following:

Size comparison with MP-17 Prowl - Showing that Bumblebee is about half the size of the Autobot Masterpiece cars

Rear Image of figure - Showing how the back half of the car and spare tire rest in robot mode. Also shown in this image are additional close ups of both faces (regular and masked)

Profile image of Spike's Exo-suit in Vehicle mode - Showing us that the spike's head will be able to rotate and look forward. Perfect for seeing where one is going.

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Utilizing Dolby Atmos Sound System
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '14 at 05:16 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
There is a saying "History has a way of repeating itself". Same can be applied when considering what happened 3 years ago and now. Back in 2011 at the Cinemacon it was revealed that Transformers: Dark Of The Moon will utilize Dolby’s 7.1 Surround Sound System. This time for Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Dolby reveals that the movie will feature their Atmos Surround Sound System. Of course the news doesn’t come as a surprise since Michael Bay himself revealed the fact that he will be using the Dolby Atmos system for Transformers 4 about one year ago.

So, what can we expect from this technology? Here's what Dolby has to say...

Benefits of Dolby Atmos

Delivers a powerful and dramatic new cinema sound listening experience

Allows sounds to move around the theatre to create dynamic effects

Reproduces a natural and lifelike audio experience that perfectly matches the story

Adds overhead speakers for the most realistic effects you’ve ever heard

Reflects the artist’s original intent, regardless of theatre setup

Employs up to 64 speakers to heighten the realism and impact of every scene

Artistic Freedom
For filmmakers, details matter—a lot. And Dolby Atmos gives filmmakers full creative control over the placement and movement of sound around the audience. This completely new level of artistic freedom enables precise matching of audio to onscreen action.
Dialogue follows characters. Sound effects track with camera pans. Ambient sounds envelop you. For the first time, you’ll hear the whole picture.

Botcon 2014 Exclusive Devcon Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '14 at 11:16 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Botcon have unveiled their third 2014 convention exclusive, which is sure to please a lot of fans. The third 2014 exclusive is from the "Knight" faction, and is the one and only Devcon, a retooled Generations Scourge with a new head.

This is the first time that the character Devcon will have appeared in toy form. The character was introduced in the 1985 cartoon episode "The Gambler" where he helped the Autobot Smokescreen recover the rest of the Autobots from an alien fighting arena. His brief appearance as an Autobot aligned bounty hunter has afforded him a sort of "Boba Fett" kind of mystique, and he's been included on many lists of "obscure Transformers deserving toys".

(Although we say this is the first time that Devcon will get a toy release, a Devcon was one of many exclusives planned by former license holders 3H for their 2005 convention, but their loss of the license meant this never materialized).

Cinemacon 2014 To Reveal A Sneak Peek Of Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '14 at 10:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Ah Cinemacon… so we meet again! Yes, this is the 2014 Cinemacon week and if you recall last time; back in 2011, the audience was given a demonstration of the technology used to create Transformers: Dark Of The Moon. Not only that, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was also there to comment on behalf of the movie. But it's the outcome that mattered; shortly after the conclusion of 2011 Cinemacon, floodgates were opened to reveal Transformers: Dark Of The Moon as Michael Bay invited journalists to experience an extended tour of what was shown during Cinemacon.

Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we learn that Cinemacon 2014 is ready to give a sneak peek of Transformers: Age Of Extinction":

Paramount: Monday, 6:30 p.m.
Paramount will be teasing several of its big summer movies, including Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction, which will star Mark Wahlberg. The studio will also preview the live-action/CG pic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Brett Ratner-helmed Hercules. The presentation should feature plenty of talent, including Wahlberg of Transformers, Will Arnett for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dwayne Johnson for Hercules. Christopher Nolan (who is participating in a panel at the convention) should make an appearance to tout his highly anticipated film Interstellar, which hits theaters in November.

TFW's Masterpiece MP12G Lambor Generation 2 Version (G2 Sideswipe) Gallery Now Online!
Posted by News Fetcher on March 23 '14 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
While we all wait on tenterhooks for the new Masterpiece series releases of Wheeljack and Bumblebee, Takara-Tomy has been releasing some of their existing Masterpiece Transformers in new decos. One of those releases is Masterpiece Lambor G-2 Version, aka Masterpiece Generation 2 Sideswipe.

This toy is one that embodies the spirit of Generation 2 as a whole, and even feels like it stepped out of 90s comics. The toy itself is the legendary "black with red trim" Sideswipe deco, which looks gorgeous and has a fantastic finish. But with this release, Takara-Tomy went the extra mile - they went back to the Generation 2 comic book and gave Sideswipe new accessories based on the comic. The result is a Masterpiece series release who looks as though he jumped off the printed page.

The set also comes with an optional sticker sheet to customize your Generation 2 Sideswipe, and give him either toy accurate markings or just a Generation 2 Autobot symbol. Personally I felt the finish on the toy was too good to sticker up, but the stickers are a great little extra that make the toy for me.

Overall Lambor G-2 Version / Masterpiece Generation 2 Sideswipe is a fantastic release and a great tribute to the whole Generation 2 era from Takara-Tomy. He's well worth taking a look at if you want to diversify your Masterpiece Transformers collection a bit, or if you just love his so typically 90s action hero look.

Be sure to check out our full, extensive gallery for a good look at this release:

2005 Boards member uranusdd has shared with us some nice in-hand pictures of the recently released Masterpiece MP-13B Soundblaster with Ratbat. This Masterpiece set redecos Soundwave in his "new Soundwave" colors from the 1987 Japan-only Headmasters series, complete with optional chest piece to give Soundblaster a show-accurate purple chest, or a toy accurate red one.

The set also includes Ratbat who is a new mold and rounds out the set of Soundwave's six main minions. Like Laserbeak and Buzzsaw, Ratbat manages to integrate the gold engines which were removable accessories on the original toy - a tiny marvel of engineering!
