Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Premium Edition Optimus Prime Revealed?
Posted by News Fetcher on January 15 '14 at 01:30 AM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
11-11 of ACToys has posted new images of a Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Optimus Prime sans battle mask with chrome parts. We're not entirely sure what size class this figure is in. It's listed in the ACToys thread as a leader. It does look different from the "leader" figure shown at NYCC 2013. Recently we did hear of a Age Of Extinction Premium Optimus Prime. The Premium Optimus was stated to have plated parts(which could mean chrome which the figure shown here has). Perhaps the mainline non-premium edition(if there is one planned) will feature no chrome plating and will have the battle masked head. You may remember back in 2011, the Walmart exclusive voyager Optimus featured a head sculpt sans battle mask, while the mainline version of the mold featured a less striking deco and featured the battle mask head.

This may be the same Age Of Extinction Optimus Prime we showed a few days back(in truck mode). Stay tuned for more information as we come closer and closer to Toy Fair 2014!

Transformers Go Optimus EX Prime New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on January 14 '14 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy Transformers design team member Hisashi Yuki has updated his twitter feed with new images of the upcoming Transformers Go Optimus EX Prime. Optimus EX Prime is a new form of Hunter Optimus Prime appearing in the Transformers Go storyline to face the mighty Guren Dragotron. He can transform into either a bullet train or a dragon, and wields a pair of blades that can unite into a single, massive weapon. These new images show Optimus EX Prime's box, and also his weapons attached to Hunter Optimus Prime, the Japanese Beast Hunters Voyager Optimus Prime.

Optimus EX Prime is due to be released in Japan at the end of this month. It won't be long now before we can say "all aboard the dragon train!"

Posted by News Fetcher on January 14 '14 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hasbro have updated their online Transformers product catalog with more new listings for the Construct Bots line. The latest new additions are four new "Arsenal Pack" figures - essentially the same as the earlier sets, but with more bonus parts and weapons at no extra cost (pictures suggest the figures are not redecoed). The four Arsenal Pack figures are Starscream, Bumblebee, Wheeljack and Soundwave.

Some new listings have also gone up with new images of the Beast Hunters Construct Bots, including the Bulkhead and Unicron Megatron Triple Team sets, plus the Scout class Starscream and Elite class Skystalker and Shockwave.

Generations 2014 Deluxe Wave 4 is Jhiaxus, Nightbeat and Windblade?
Posted by News Fetcher on January 14 '14 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Japanese retailer Red Mercury has listed order pages for a future assortment of Generations, which we believe is the 2014 Deluxe Wave 4. This assortment according to their listings is made up of Nightbeat, Jhiaxus and Windblade.

The listings suggest that Nightbeat will be a Reveal the Shield Deluxe Jazz remold, with Jhiaxus a remold of Generations Armada Starscream with new guns. Windblade is only shown as concept artwork.

Take these listings with a pinch of salt, though - the attached images might be photoshopped placeholders.

Masterpiece Wheeljack Amazon Exclusive Anti-Hypnosis Device Accessory
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '14 at 04:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Amazon Japan has listed a preorder page for Masterpiece MP-20 Wheeljack. While there are no pictures on the page yet, the page title reveals that Masterpiece Wheeljack will come with an exclusive accessory - an anti-hypnosis device.

The anti-hypnosis device is one of Wheeljack's many inventions that aided the Autobot cause throughout the Generation 1 series. It occupies a particularly important position in the plot of the Generation 1 cartoon, being the device that broke the Decepticons' hold on their hypno-chipped human slaves in the three part season 1 storyline, The Ultimate Doom.

Masterpiece Wheeljack was recently confirmed to be coming out in August this year, along with our first look at the toy, attached to this story once again for your viewing pleasure.

In-Hand Image of Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Optimus Prime Figure
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '14 at 11:30 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
It's that time of year again... thanks to TFW2005 member opoptimus via a post on ACToys by user 11-11, we have an in-hand (but small) image of Optimus Prime from Transformers: Age of Extinction. This could perhaps be a closer to production version of the toy we saw at Hasbro's New York Comic Con event in October. If this is the case, noticeable differences include the chrome being replaced by silver paint and/or grey plastic, and the shield weapon changing. However, there has been speculation that this is actually a different toy due to some differences in the weapons, shields, and slight transformation differences - only time will tell if this is indeed the Leader class toy altered a bit from the promo piece at NYCC, or a different size/release planned for the line. It does match up closer with the box art pic YIZHI521 dropped last month (which is speculated by some fans to be a Voyager figure). Check out the pictures after the break and discuss on the forums!

We have a new gallery showcasing one of the new Transformers toy releases to share with you! Today we have a gallery of the Transformers Go! Hunter Nemesis Prime Japanese store exclusive.

Hunter Nemesis Prime is a Cybertron Satellite store exclusive, and he represents an evil Optimus Prime from another dimension. He has been summoned to the Transformers Go! conflict through the power of the Black Legendisc!

Hunter Nemesis Prime, as a toy, is a redeco of the Beast Hunters Optimus Prime. He sports the now traditional black and teal deco of a Nemesis Prime, in addition to a rocking new headsculpt with a faceplate! He's every bit the fun and solid release that the Beast Hunters Optimus Prime was, with the addition of a black deco which has been proven time and again to work so well on the various Optimus Prime toys. A fun feature also is that this toy comes with a red version of the Star Saber sword - yes, Hunter Nemesis Prime has his very own "Sword of Fury"!

Overall Hunter Nemesis Prime is an excellent deco on a great toy. He's well worth checking out if you like black repaints, evil Primes, or just want a cool new Transformer for your collection. Check out this excellent gallery by TFW2005 photo staff member SydneyY and see for yourself:

By way of Youtube user kbigstone, we can share with you this excellent video clip which has been doing the rounds on social media. What you can view, embedded below, is rare video footage from the 1983 Tokyo Toy Show.

The 1983 Tokyo Toy Show was where Takara exhibited their Diaclone and Micro Change toy lines. It was at this show that representatives of Hasbro, looking for new properties to introduce to the US market, discovered the toy lines and reported back to the higher ups at Hasbro with their findings - and the rest, as they say, is history.
