Upcoming Transformers Rescue Bots Toys Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on January 30 '14 at 07:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Everybody Walk The Dinosaur! Brazilian toy site; HobbyBrinquedos continues to reveal more upcoming Hasbro Transformers Figures. This time we have figures from Transformers: Rescue Bots.

Some of the figures are from the Rescan series while the others are Dinosaur themed. The upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction may have been the influence for this product line since the kids would definitely want Robot Dinosaurs after watching the movie. We are yet to understand the role Dinosaurs will play in the latest Rescue Bots animated series which will debut this March.

For the Rescan toyline, Heatwave will have an altmode of a Fireboat while Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will become a Monster Truck and a Motor Cycle respectively.

For the Dinosaur Theme we have images of Heatwave, Optimus and Chase turning with Vehicle-Dino Hybrid altmodes.

The listing also reveals a 22 Inch Optimus Prime which is the same height as the Titan Class Metroplex.

Upcoming Transformers Mr. Potato Head Figures Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on January 30 '14 at 06:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Thanks to the Brazilian toy site; HobbyBrinquedos, we have with us some images of upcoming Transformers Mr. Potato Head Figures.

The toys feature Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream and Grimlock.

Strangely, one of the descriptions mention that these Potato Heads are for Transformers: Rescue Bots. This may have been due to a slight mistake since all the figures seem to be inspired from Generation 1.

By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Coming via product listings at the e-tailer site Hobby - Distribuidora de Brinquedos (Distributor of Toys), we have product images of Transformers Hero Mashers.

Hero Mashers appears to be a line focused on removable, ball jointed limbs where kids (and collectors) can combine different parts of characters to create new figures.

In the product listings we have images of what looks like to be a mix of Age of Extinction characters and Generation 1 styled characters. Listed are what we can guess to be Age of Extinction Grimlock, G1/Movie aesthetic Optimus Prime, Prime/Movie aesthetic Bulkhead, G1 Starscream, IDW aesthetic Bumblebee, and G1 Bludgeon.

Check out the images after the jump and let us know what you think about these Hero Mashers.

Jeff Kline Confirms The Next Transformers Series Is In Production
Posted by News Fetcher on January 29 '14 at 12:00 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Producer Jeff Kline spoke to Keep Me Current, to let us in on the fact that the next Transformers Animated Series is in production.

"Q: Of everything you’ve done, and everything you could do, why comic books?
A: Well, I’ve been almost five years going back and forth between the coasts. I’d like to live here more full-time. But it’s really hard to run a show from 3,000 miles away and, for the time being anyway, it seems like it’s going to be a hard time to get the networks to let me run an animated series out of Portland. I do still have a development deal with Hasbro. I have another “Transformers” series coming; that’s in full-blown production right now. I have a documentary I executive-produced that’s coming out this year, as well as other TV and movie projects, but I’ve been looking for something I can do from here. With comic books, you don’t have to be on a studio lot. It’s a lot of working with freelancers who can be anywhere in the country. It’s a business that’s very used to happening not in person. So, it’s a good business to start from my home in Cape Elizabeth."

Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack - Missile Launcher Shown by Shogo Hasui
Posted by News Fetcher on January 29 '14 at 12:00 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Shogo Hasui, the current lead designer of the TakaraTomy Masterpiece Transformers line, recently updated his Twitter feed with the image mirrored here showing off the upcoming the missile launcher from Masterpiece Wheeljack MP-20. A Google translation of the tweet text gives us a little more information about the the launcher:
Quote:
"Magnet gun of the right shoulder of the MP-20 foil Jack is supposed to be able to give them some elevation, pulling out the missile part.
It is a gimmick that can be used to reproduce such as Episode 15 of "The Rise of Atlantis!".
The missile is at least detachable from the launcher, and the missile can be pulled out. However, there's no indication of anything further as to whether or not it has a feature to launch it by way of any sort of trigger. Either way, it's still really exciting to see more and more of this anticipated release!
