By TunaKaan from TFW2005:
The Transformers Legends blog has just announced the next event for the Transformers Legends mobile game.
And in addition to Optimus Prime and Megatron (duh), it features Ramjet and Brawn. Check out the description below.

''For the month of January, journey back in time with us to 1986. The year when Voyager 2 was reaching the outer planets of our solar system. The year when the protocol for e-mail was being defined.

Who will stand and who will fall? Find out in “The Battle for Autobot City”!''

Transformers Generation 1 Valentines Cards
Posted by News Fetcher on January 01 '14 at 07:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It seems like we've only just cleared away the Christmas wrapping paper and found spots on our shelves for the Transformers gifted to us by our loved ones. So it's perhaps not unsurprising that we've got a sighting of some Transformers Generation 1 themed Valentines cards. They come 34 to a box with Transformers temporary tattoos, and feature Generation 1 box artwork of Megatron, Soundwave, Optimus Prime (in original and Powermaster flavors) and some contemporary artwork of Generation 1 Bumblebee. The cards are accompanied by messages such as Bumblebee's "let's get to it, Valentine!" and Megatron's "Valentine, you are a leader!" (read that one back in Frank Welker's Megatron voice for added effect).

These were spotted at K-Mart. Many thanks to TFW2005 member Shark Jumper for the heads up.

New 3rd Party Fall of Cybertron Ruination/Wreckers Upgrade Kit?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 31 '13 at 10:00 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
From Meteor Operation's Facebook page, we have a silhouette of what looks to be an upgrade kit for Fall of Cybertron Ruination, who is a combination of the five Wreckers. This kit will be produced by 3rd party group Echo TF, and odds are it will be relatively similar to their previous Fall of Cybertron Bruticus upgrade kit.

Wreck 'n' Rule!

By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Thanks to Masterpiece designer Shogo Hasui's (who was unfortunately previously reported to be being replaced by Hironori Kobayashi) Twitter, we now have another look at MP-20 Masterpiece Wheeljack! Although it is yet another silhouette image, it does provide us with a basis for estimation of what the final product may look like. Wheeljack is scheduled for release in 2014. It shouldn't be too long now until we start seeing images of the final product!

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction - The Night Jack Reynor Landed His Big Role
Posted by News Fetcher on December 31 '13 at 01:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Well, this isn't exactly the earth-shattering news material, but hey… some news is better than nothing right? Some of you are now celebrating the New Year and some of you are still waiting. Here's a story of someone else who waited. Simon Delaney; Irish Actor and Director spoke to Herald about the night Jack Reynor landed his major role in Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

"We all knew when we were shooting Delivery Man that he [Jack] had done a couple of screen tests and auditions for Transformers, every day we would say: 'Any news?' Jack was actually on set one night, Michael Bay [the director of Transformers] called and he stepped off set to take the call," Simon revealed.

"Everyone was looking through a window, like eager fathers awaiting the birth of their new son, and he came back in and said, 'I got it'. There was a little bit of a party that night."


According to the article, this is a 3 movie deal. Which means there is a good chance of Transformers 5 and 6.

Speaking of Transformers Movies… we are now only a little more than a month away from out first look at Transformers 4. Be sure to stick with TFW2005 more news soon.

Happy 2014 Everybody… It's Time To Go Big Or Go Extinct!!! (Ok, so maybe the last line was bit cheesy.)

Interview with Ron Friedman, Writer of Transformers: The Movie
Posted by News Fetcher on December 31 '13 at 04:00 AM
By TunaKaan from TFW2005:
Here comes a very interesting and fun interview with the man who killed Optimus Prime! Todd Matthy had a chance to sat down and talk with Rod Friedman (writer of Transformers, Iron Man, Fantastic Four) He talks about his experiences as a writer, his friendship with Stan Lee, and of course, killing one of our favorite childhood heros.

''In the summer of 1986, children were traumatized when Optimus Prime sacrificed himself to stop his archrival, Megatron. But it wasn’t Megatron who pulled the trigger, it was a writer named Ron Friedman.

Ron Friedman wrote Transformers: The Movie. He wrote the five-part miniseries that launched GI Joe. He is close friends with Stan Lee and helped Stan develop The Marvel Action Hour, featuring Iron Man and Fantastic Four. He has written episodes of All in the Family, Happy Days, and Fantasy Island. In addition to his writing credentials, Ron is an architect and a teacher at Chapman University.

In 2014, Ron plans to chronicle his experiences as a writer in the memoir, I Killed Optimus Prime. The book promises a fascinating look behind the scenes of the shows that defined our childhood.

I had the privilege of speaking with Ron about his career, his friendship with Stan Lee, what he thought when he first saw the Transformers, how Orson Welles became Unicron, and why he didn’t want to kill Optimus Prime.

So, to kick off the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers, Ron Friedman, the man who killed Optimus Prime.

New Designer for 2014 Masterpiece Series Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on December 30 '13 at 05:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In the latest edition of Japanese hobby magazine, an article talking about the future of the Transformers Masterpiece series reveals that the 2014 Masterpiece series releases will have a new designer - Hironori Kobayashi will be taking over the reins from Shogo Hasui, who brought us the Masterpiece series releases from MP11 Starscream version 2 through to the recently released MP19 Smokescreen.

You need not worry though, because Hironori Kobayashi is no stranger to the Transformers Masterpiece series - he was the designer on the first ten Masterpieces that Takara and later Takara-Tomy released, from MP1 Masterpiece Convoy / 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime to MP10 Convoy Version 2. He also did the initial work on MP3 Starscream, which was revised by Shoji Kawamori. Mr Kobayashi's other Transformers design credits include the Alternity series.

Please note that this does not affect the design of the Masterpiece Star Saber, which is being undertaken by Hishashi Yuki as previously reported.

IDW Windblade Comic Confirmed as 4 Issue Mini-Series; Possibly an Ongoing?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '13 at 03:00 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Thanks to writer Maighread Scott's postings in TFW2005's very own Windblade fan club, it has been confirmed that the Windblade fiction will consist of not just a single comic, but will be a 4 issue mini-series. What's interesting is that Scott also notes the possibility of it evolving into an ongoing should the project be successful, which would presumably run alongside MTMTE, RID, and whatever else may pop up. She also answers some other questions and goes into even further detail about various topics.

Be warned, some of her comments may be considered slight spoilers. If you don't mind, you can read her quotes and discuss your feelings about this revelation after the jump!

YOTH Optimus Prime Sighted IN STORES!
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '13 at 10:30 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Looks like YOTH Optimus Prime is busting out the gate a bit early, galloping to a Toys R Us near you. 2005 Boards member Sinestro snapped this pic showing the Asian Market (inspired) Masterpiece Optimus Prime repaint on the shelves and ready for sale at Toys R Us in the UK. User Stony2511, also from the UK, reported it at a different store too, tho with no pics. No word yet of them popping up in the States or elsewhere yet. Happy hunting! If you find him or Platinum Starscream, make sure to let everyone know in our Transformers Sightings forum!

Rescue Bots Rescan Optimus Prime and Heatwave Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '13 at 06:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Back in October, we heard via listings on our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store of an upcoming assortment of Transformers Rescue Bots, called Rescue Bots Rescan. Today via the website of Smyth's Toys, we have a look at two of the toys in this series, Optimus Prime and Heatwave. While the toys retain the Playskool "first Transformer" simplicity that the Rescue Bots series is known for, the toy designs show both Rescue Bots have adopted new alternate modes - Optimus Prime is an all-terrain monster truck, and Heatwave's arms suggest he's now a boat.

Now we know that the "rescan" in Rescue Bots Rescan means that the Rescue Bots are scanning new alternate modes for themselves - but does this mean this will be reflected in the new season of the Rescue Bots cartoon, or is it merely a new way to sell toys in the Rescue Bots line without diverging into masses of non-show characters? Watch this space for more news.

X-Transbots have released final product images of their unofficial, unlicensed Huffer and Pipes minibots, Krank and Stax, via the TFUpgrader Facebook page. The pair feature chromed arms like the original Generation 1 toys and alternate heads to reflect the different ways both have been depicted in comics and cartoons over the years. They are done roughly to Masterpiece scale and can tow the trailer for MP-10 Masterpiece Convoy. Check out the images and see what you think.

Mairghread Scott, writer of IDW's upcoming Windblade issue (which had been previously reported yesterday), has released a few statements on her Tumblr regarding the comic. In them, she attempts to clarify how the subject matter of female Transformers in the IDW G1 continuity will be handled.

Be warned, some of her comments may be considered slight spoilers in regards to Windblade's origin. If you don't mind, you can read her comments after the jump!

(And if you Are a Windblade fan, consider joining TFW2005's Official Windblade Group, where Mairghread Scott's husband has decided to drop by to answer some questions!)

Amazon Japan has posted the official images of Transformers Go! G26 EX Optimus Prime! The figure itself is pretty unique. It's a tripple changer, it's both a dragon AND a bullet train!

Other than those modes, the figure is capable of combine with G01 Kenzan and G05 Gekisomaru figures, which you can check out both of them after the jump.

You can pre-order it now, but it is estimated to arrive on January 25th, 2014.
