Peter Cullen Talks About Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Optimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '14 at 11:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
USA Today had the pleasure to talk with the legendary voice actor Peter Cullen about reprising his role as Optimus Prime for Michael Bay's Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

"He is exactly who he was from the very original concept," Cullen says of Prime. "I've always felt a hero should have the qualities that are inspiring and helpful and fatherly and at the same time (be) courageous. I don't see those character traits changing at all."

"Though Larry's gone," Peter Cullen says, "he lives on in my mind as Optimus Prime because he was my hero."


30 years ago he became Optimus Prime and in a month's time we will hear Mr. Cullen again.

Transformers Hero Mashers In Package Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '14 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via Transformers Colombia we have a look at the Transformers Hero Mashers in package. Of interest is that the DX Optimus Prime and Bulkhead sets which come with more parts than the average Hero Masher specify that the additional parts they come with come from Ultra Magnus and Cliffjumper - a hint at things to come? Or merely a coincidence?

Transformers Construct Bots Dinobot Slash Revealed

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via a posting on the Ragin Nation Facebook page, we now have a look at the Transformers Age of Extinction Construct Bots Dinobot Slash. Slash has not yet been officially announced by Hasbro, but the eagle eyed among you might have spotted him in the Toy Fair 2014 official photos for Dinobot Rider Hound. He is presumably a part of the second wave of Construct Bots Dinobots, as the first wave was previously confirmed as Slug, Strafe and Grimlock.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2003
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '14 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In 2003, Transformers Armada hit its stride and took everyone by storm, exceeding demands and giving fans a long-awaited toy in the form of a supreme class Unicron! The series also launched in Japan under the name Micron Legend where it enjoyed moderate popularity, though Japanese fans could not get enough of the Mini-Cons, called Microns in Japan. The Transformers comics by Dreamwave continued with more miniseries including War & Peace, the second series set in the “modern day” of Dreamwave’s Generation 1 universe. Simon Furman carried on his work, penning the remaining 12 issues of Transformers Armada, as well as the important War Within: The Dark Ages miniseries. Comics were an area of major expansion, as both Dreamwave and Devil’s Due published G.I. Joe VS Transformers crossovers, the first in over 10 years. The UK even got its own dedicated (but short lived) Transformers Armada comic from Panini. Even the toyline underwent expansion, with the new Transformers Universe line launching in June-July as a side-line running parallel to the Transformers Armada toyline, and a short-lived Wal-Mart exclusive Dinobots sideline.

The Complete Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Chevy Commercial

By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
During the New York International Auto Show, Chevrolet revealed their 3rd Transformers Chevy Commercial (previously for Revenge Of The Fallen and Dark Of The Moon).

However, we did not get a chance to watch the full video and it is yet to be released officially.

But, we have stumbled upon the fill length commercial on You Tube by TheDHCreator. It's still a recording off the screen at NYIAS but this is the best one yet. The video features what may possibly be a track composed by Steve Jablonsky for Michael Bay's Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 2002
Posted by News Fetcher on April 26 '14 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In 2002 Transformers underwent a new transformation as the “third era” of Transformers began late in the year when Transformers Armada was unleashed on the world. Though nobody, not even Hasbro, knew it at the time this line and TV show would be so successful that it would kick off a whole new continuity that would last for the best part of five years, the Unicron Trilogy. But that was not all, because in 2002, after a 10 year long absence, the Transformers finally returned to comics!

Via Transformers Columbia, we have some new official images of the upcoming Transformers Generations Rattrap and Tankor, which includes in package pics for both toys. Be sure to check out a very welcome return of the classic Maximal and Vehicon faction logos on these packages!

Please note, this is specific to one online retailer, and these dates may follow the expected Asian release dates so the US release window might lag behind slightly.

We repeat.

Nothing is cancelled! Rattrap, Tankor and Crosscut will all be released!

TFW's Transformers Collectors Club Sideburn Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on April 25 '14 at 03:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Since we are celebrating Robots in Disguise in today's chapter of the 30 years of Transformers in 30 days, we thought now would be a great time to take a look at one of the many cool homages to Robots in Disguise that has come out across the last few years - the Transformers Collectors Club 2011 membership exclusive, Sideburn!

Sideburn was a redeco of the Transformers Classics Rodimus, which is a nice bit of self-referencing given that the Robots in Disguise Super Sideburn deco was itself based on Hot Rod's own deco. The deco is particularly well-suited to the mold and does a good job of evoking the character, and a clever paint job on the robot mode head helps to give Sideburn his own identity.

Overall, the TCC Sideburn was a particularly sharp deco and looked good on the Rodimus mold. If you're a fan of Robots in Disguise, you could do a lot worse than seeking this toy out for your collection. Check out SydneyY's excellent gallery and judge for yourself.

Transformers and Evangelion Crossover Announced
Posted by News Fetcher on April 25 '14 at 06:15 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Courtesy from a TakaraTomy ad from the most recent Dengeki Hobby Magazine, we have confirmation of a crossover event between Transformers and Evangelion. The ad first seen here on Twitter and reported by AnimeNewsNetwork reveals Optimus Prime (drawn similarly to his MP-10 silhouette) with nods and symbols from Evangelion, including a NERV symbol on his shoulder. Does this mean a potential toy release with this deco? No details are available at this time unfortunately.

For those fans not familiar with the Evangelion series, Evangelion is an apocalyptic anime in the mecha genre first airing in the mid 1990's, which became very popular in Japan. The series is set in a futuristic Tokyo, fifteen years after a worldwide cataclysm (see more info here). AnimeNewsNetwork also translated a summary of the cross over explaining more details:

The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can't even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.

With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city...but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They've come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.

"We can't let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet."
"What?! What are these monsters?!"

The shocked Cybertron convoy sets its sights on an enemy much bigger than themselves.


Discuss the crossover after the jump!
