30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1990
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '14 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
And so we reach 1990, the final year of Transformers Generation 1 for the USA. By now Transformers was truly coming to an end, with the original Generation 1 comic series reaching what writer Simon Furman had intended to be a finale with issue 75. The Transformers toyline carried on with more Micromasters and also the Action Masters – poseable Transformers that did not transform – which are sometimes blamed for killing the toyline, and there is no doubting they were a nail in the coffin. Even Japan, which had persisted with cartoons and new toys all of its own, began to show signs of a decline with Transformers Zone being a single episode direct-to-video release instead of a full broadcast TV series. With the comic coming to a close and no new cartoons on TV anywhere in the world, it was a very bleak time for the Transformers brand.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's a cool little bit of Transformers merchandising if you like to devour everything there is about Transformers - a new licensed Transformers foodstuff! Hershey's ice cream have produced a new Transformers "Autobot Blast Bar", a strawberry, lemon and fruity blue moon flavored ice cream bar, done in the Autobot symbol design. The packaging features the new 2014 style but like other merchandising we have seen recently, it uses Transformers Prime artwork for the packaging.

GI Eddie & Echo TF FansProject Stunticons Upgrades
Posted by News Fetcher on April 13 '14 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An upgrade for an unofficial third party transforming robot set, you say? Yes, it seems that hot on the heels of the recently completed FansProject Menasor / Stunticons, an upgrade is being made for the set by GI Eddie (who made an alternate head for TFC's Hercules Devastator) and Echo TF (who made an upgrade for Fall of Cybertron Bruticus). The designs are in shapeways prototypes at the moment, but the intention is to move into full production - check out a sampling of images attached to this story, and check out full details on the Echo TF Facebook page.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hasbro US have also updated their online product catalog with new listings for the new Transformers Mr Potato Head toys. The four revealed, and on the site, so far are a larger Optimus Prime and Starscream which include parts to let them "transform" along with smaller Optimus Prime and Grimlock potato heads. Interestingly, the packaging identifies these Playskool offerings as a part of the Rescue Bots series, despite their Generation 1 roots.

The catalog update also includes entries for the Battle Masters series, although the links for them are not yet live.

Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Toys New Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 13 '14 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hasbro's Australian website has updated its toy catalog with new listings for many of the Transformers Age of Extinction releases. The new listings include the first assortments of the Generations Deluxe and Voyager Classes, including Crosshairs and Bumblebee, Age of Extinction Construct Bots and Age of Extinction Kre-O. Of possible note is that the Kreon combiner sets Obsidian and Lazerbolt are here named as Firewing and Icebolt, though their original names are featured on the packaging, so it is possible that Firewing and Icebolt were the original working names for the sets - or the packaging in the photos is out of date.

Check out the new images attached to this story.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1989
Posted by News Fetcher on April 13 '14 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
1989, the fifth anniversary of Transformers, saw the line in decline. With no cartoon in the US, and increasing competition from other lines including Ninja Turtles and Micro Machines, the Transformers toy line floundered. Pretenders stuck around, undergoing downsizing and simplification, and new pocket-sized Transformers complete with bases and vehicles called Micromasters were introduced. Japan continued in its own direction with almost no US imports in this year, instead making its own toys, and another new cartoon, Transformers Victory.

Takara-Tomy Transformers Age of Extinction Product Catalog
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '14 at 10:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The NTF-Archive has posted some scans of a Takara-Tomy product catalog, which lists what we expect would be pretty much the entire product line for Transformers Age of Extinction. The product line up we have seen so far would appear to be the tip of the iceberg, with the Japanese releases in the Generations Age of Extinction series totaling up to 30 by the time all is said and done. Japanese releases for the one-step changer toys, including the stomp and chomp Grimlock and Power Battlers Dinobots are also confirmed.

The most interesting part of the product listings comes in the form of confirmations of future releases, which we were previously unaware of. Following the initial May - June releases, the following Generations series Age of Extinction toys will be released in Japan, potentially with tweaked or alternate decos:

July 2014 - Leader class Grimlock, Voyager class Hound, Voyager class Galvatron, Deluxe class Autobot Drift, Deluxe class Strafe, Deluxe class Slash and one other presently unknown Deluxe class toy, which we are guessing might be Lockdown.

August 2014 - Another unknown Deluxe class toy who seems to have a vehicular form, which might be Lockdown if that's not him in July, or it might be Stinger assuming Stinger is getting a toy. There's a second Deluxe class toy listed, this time with a silhouette of Grimlock suggesting a fifth Deluxe class Dinobot is coming out in Japan.

September 2014 - two more Voyagers are shown, one with a "Bumblebee" silhouette suggesting a vehicular alternate form, and one with a "Grimlock" suggesting another Dinobot.

Age of Extinction Leader Grimlock New Official Images Confirm Added Chrome
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '14 at 09:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Via a pair of pictures on Hasbro Australia's website accessible via Google Image Search, we can show you some new official images of the Transformers Age of Extinction Leader Class Grimlock in his robot mode and dinosaur mode. The new images confirm that compared to the sample of Grimlock on show at Toy Fair 2014, the Age of Extinction Generations Leader Grimlock we are getting at retail will have chrome on the dinosaur head, robot chest, and parts of the robot legs. It's all very shiny - but does the extra bling on Grimlock do it for you?

Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '14 at 06:45 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
It seems as though Composer Steve Jablonsky and Imagine Dragons are working on the Score/Soundtrack of Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

Steve Jablonsky managed to produce some amazing music for all previous Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movies while the band Imagine Dragons also delivered some amazing songs in the past; including Who We Are (for Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Demons and their super-hit song; Radioactive which was dubbed as the "Biggest rock hit of the year 2013".

This news is coming from a Facebook user who took an image during the recording session.

The Transformers toyline released in 1988 was a continuation of the diversification of the line and the integration of more gimmicks into the line. Ideas used from the previous year, like six changers, Headmasters, Targetmasters and toys that shot sparks were all carried over, and other new gimmicks were introduced, including Powermasters, which used small engine Nebulans to unlock the transformation of their partner, and Pretenders, simplified robots who fit into plastic shells to masquerade and humans or monsters depending on the faction. 1988 was also the first year that the Transformers toys were downsized, with returning gimmicks simplified and the overall size of the toys decreasing.

Thanks to GT, we have with us the Bumblebee Character Trailer for Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark.

"Serving as a follow-up to both the upcoming TRANSFORMERS live-action film and Activision's TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON and TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON titles, TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE DARK SPARK jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership - the Dark Spark. Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble AUTOBOTS and the nefarious DECEPTICONS throughout the single-player campaign. Similar to High Moon Studios' CYBERTRON entries in the highly regarded series, gameplay features nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat paired with traversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for large-scale, dynamic conflicts."

The game is now rated "T for Teen".
