Random Photo Shoot - MPM-2 Bumblebee
Posted by News Fetcher on January 20 '14 at 03:30 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
With all the talk about simplification and downsizing going on in the fandom, we thought it'd be nice to show what the other direction can bring to the table.

MPM-2 Bumblebee was the Takara "Masterpiece" repaint of Hunt for the Decepticons Battle Ops Bumblebee. MPM-2 was a larger than Masterpiece version of Movie Bumblebee from Revenge of the Fallen with a dead on accurate Camaro mold. Lights and sounds galore. The robot sculpt was also well-done, though it lacked in some arm and leg movement. Paint on the Takara version covered the entire car rather than just yellow plastic, and the interior robot mode was a darker grey with lots of hand painted highlights.

Simplification, smaller molds, less paint - these have a place in the brand as it moves forward for sure. I've had trouble figuring these things out for a while and I'm grown. We just hope that figures like MPM-2, other Masterpieces, well done Leader Class figures (ROTF Leader size, please) stick around in some form as well. And not just $180 dollar imports from Japan.

Take a look at the full gallery for MPM-2 Bumblebee by clicking the link below, we've also attached some key shots after the break!

In-Hand Images of Generations Voyager Whirl
Posted by News Fetcher on January 20 '14 at 08:45 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Looks like HK-TF member stevenhyk is the first one to experience some super-unvincibility, as thanks to him, we have our first in-hand images of Generations Voyager Whirl! Whirl is very G1-inspired, while taking a few minor cues from his IDW More than Meets the Eye counterpart, specifically in the head and legs. He features an opening cockpit, and much like Generations Metroplex, he also comes with a decal sheet.

Check out the images after the jump, then let us know what you think in the discussion thread!

TFW's Generations Autobot Scoop Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on January 19 '14 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next in our series of advance looks at yet-to-reach-US-retail Transformers toys we have a look at Generations Autobot Scoop with his Targetmaster partners, Caliburst and Holepunch! Scoop is an update of the original character from the 1988 Generation 1 series and this is his first new toy in almost 25 years!

Generations Scoop is a fairly nifty toy. He's an update in the style of Universe 2.0 Prowl or Sunstreaker - a version realised with modern technology, better proportions and aesthetics that still ultimately remains extremely faithful to the Generation 1 original. He's got a good range of poseability in robot mode, though the ball jointed hips can sometimes feel a little restricted if they catch on the waist. In vehicle mode he is a nifty little front end loader, and the robot head sits inside the vehicle cab, which is a nice touch reminiscent of Robots in Disguise X-Brawn's head being on his car seat in vehicle mode.

Scoop is accompanied by his two Targetmasters, Holepunch and Caliburst (formerly Tracer). Like the originals, these two do not have a lot of poseability though the moveable arms are a plus. They can turn into a pair of guns for Scoop to wield in either mode, or they can be combined into a larger weapon. Just like the original Generation 1 toy, Holepunch and Caliburst can combine in two different configurations, and there are a good selection of ways for Scoop to wield the combined weapon, not least because once combined the rifle gets two pegs for him to grip on to.

Overall, Scoop is a brilliant and extremely fun toy with lots of possibilities for attaching his guns to his different modes. He might seem like an odd choice to use for an upgrade, but he is well realized and is a good toy in a great assortment. Be sure to scoop him up to add to your collection when he hits retail.

TFW's Generations Armada Starscream Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on January 18 '14 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with another new Transformers toy gallery! Presented here for your viewing pleasure is a look at the upcoming Generations Armada Starscream, a part of the Generations 2014 Deluxe assortment.

Armada Starscream is, as the name implies, a very nicely crafted homage to the original Transformers Armada Starscream, who was a breakout character with great development in the Transformers Armada series. This version of Armada Starscream is a deluxe, rather than the "Max-Con" Voyager sized original. While he's considerably smaller, Generations Armada Starscream is very well realized - he has excellent poseability that let him strike all manner of awesome poses with his twin swords. Like Transformers Armada Starscream, he also has flip-up missile launchers, they are slightly differently designed on this outing but the end effect is the same - extra shoulder mounted firepower!

I know some people comment on how the swords are now stored in the wings, rather than the wings detaching to make up the swords. In a nice design touch, the wings are ball-jointed, so they can be folded down out of the way when the swords are removed, or popped off altogether if that is your desire.

All in all, Armada Starscream is a great toy and an excellent tribute to the ten year old Unicron trilogy. As a central character in Transformers Armada, it is great that he gets recognition in the 30th anniversary branded Generations series, and it's excellent that the toy is such a perfect update of the original character. He's well worth picking up once he hits stores in the US shortly. Check out the gallery below to decide where he belongs on your want list:

Steve Jablonsky Talks Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Score
Posted by News Fetcher on January 17 '14 at 09:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
JoBlo had the pleasure of talking to one of the greatest composers of our time; Steve Jablonsky. On their exclusive interview, Mr. Jablonsky mentions how he got into scoring Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movies as well as the project he’s currently working on; Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

I would argue that TRANSFORMERS was your "he's done it" score. Do you feel that's accurate?
I have heard that before and I appreciate it. Even Hans Zimmer had said to me one day, like, "You realize you have written something that's now part of the culture?" I said, "Wow I didn't know, I didn't actually realize that" but especially coming from him who has done that time and time again.

What was the process of doing TRANSFORMERS like?
I don't know, I didn't even know if I was doing it until he [Michael Bay] called me one day and started talking about it like I was doing it. I said, "oh, am I doing it?" [laughter] And he said, "Oh, yeah what do you think?" [laughter] I thought great. And of course TRANSFORMERS is- I had known about it since I was a kid. My brother was way into it, my younger brother. That was another level of...there is going to be a lot of people looking at this movie.

I wrote a ton of themes for that, I just started writing and writing as much as I could and because I really wanted to...and as Spielberg was involved and I always had that in the back of my mind. I wanted to give them many options, I just remember writing a lot of stuff. I think most of it ended up in the film but the main theme, it's interesting. I wrote this piece that is now considered the main Autobot theme. I just wrote it, it came out and I didn't really know what I was going to do with it.

And Michael picked up on that and Hans came into my room one day he is like that right there saying "that is good." Everybody told me that, that part was good. I didn't realize...I didn't think it was any better than anything else in the score so far.
