And now for something a little different. Hasbro has uploaded a new video to their YouTube channel featuring the Age of Extinction First Edition Optimus Prime and the toy's designer, Lenny Panzica.

While the video itself may be light on content or substance, we here at TFW2005 thought it would be nice to share with our viewers.



Stay tuned to TFW2005 as we bring you the latest coverage of Transformers as it happens, including New York Toy Fair 2014 coverage next week!

Walmart Display Reveals Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Flat-Nose Truck Optimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on February 06 '14 at 11:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Thanks to an image of a Walmart Display assembled to advertise upcoming Transformers: Age Of Extinction toys, we have a clear look at Flat-Nose Truck Optimus Prime in Robot Mode. It seems as though it's a fun little nod to G1 Optimus Prime and since this is the 30th Anniversary year of the Transformers Franchise, the timing couldn't be more perfect.

You can also spot Bumblebee in his new robot mode and some placeholder product packaging with the current "Transformers" Logo.

Interview with 'Meet Windblade' Author Mairghread Scott with New Character Designs
Posted by News Fetcher on February 06 '14 at 11:00 AM
By TunaKaan from TFW2005:
Thanks to The Mary Sue website, he now have an exclusive interview with Mairghread Scott, writer of the 4 part comic series ''Meet Windblade''.

It's a really good interview where she talks about Windblade, the bots appearing alongside her, and her place in the Transformers world. Also article includes exclusive previews of Windblade supporting characters; Blurr, Chromia, and Starscream!

Here's a little snippet from the article. You can read the rest of it from here, and check the new character art after the jump.

''Jaydot: The TFWiki entry about Windblade is pretty sparse. We know she’s got a “fancy sword” and turns into a jet, and there’s almost literally no other info about her. Without getting into too much background detail, which I understand might be spoilery, can you elaborate at all on who/what Windblade is?

Mairghread: To be fair, beyond being a jet and a sword fighter I started with a pretty blank slate when I developed Windblade, so don’t fault the wiki for that one. The most important thing for me when constructing Windblade was to make her a fully three-dimensional (read: flawed) character, so if I had to pick one word to describe her I would say that Windblade is trying. She’s an optimistic, hard-working Transformers character who is genuinely interested in helping others, but she’s also been dropped in the aftermath of a millennia (for real) long war that she was not really part of, so while she’s a very competent character, she’s way behind the curve when it comes to knowing who’s who and what’s what on Cybertron. This actually makes Transfomers: Windblade a really good starting point for new readers because almost everything on Cybertron is as new to her as it is to someone just entering the brand.

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Yesterday we brought you details of Transformers: Age Of Extinction merchandise by Tech4Kids. Today we are bringing you TF4 merchandise info from another license-holder; Nikko Radio Control.

Many months back, we revealed for the first time that popular radio controlled toy vehicle manufacturer Nikko R/C has signed a 3 year deal with Hasbro to manufacture R/C Vehicles based on the vehicles from Transformers: Age Of Extinction. A month ago, we saw a brief glimpse of the toyline thanks to the UK Toy Fair 2014. Today, we have with us the official images and info courtesy of Nikko.

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Optimus Prime (Transforming)

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Bumblebee (Transforming)

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Bumblebee (Non-Transforming)

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Lockdown (Non-Transforming)

Transformers: Age Of Extinction "Helicopter" (Non-Transforming)

All toys come with LED lights and sounds as well as shock-proof bodies. Both transforming and non-transforming Bumblebee R/C cars are of 1:16 Scale. Same applies for the Lockdown non-transforming vehicle (image not included) as well. Optimus Prime transforming R/C vehicle will come with his Sword Of Judgment and Sentinel Shield while Bumblebee will also carry a shield (yet unnamed).

Speaking of "unnamed", the company will also manufacture a mysterious Age Of Extinction R/C Helicopter that they will keep unnamed for spoiler reasons. The helicopter is a 3.5 channel radio controlled vehicle.

You can check out all the images we got, after the jump.

Transformers Universe to Release This Summer
Posted by News Fetcher on February 05 '14 at 01:30 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard has recently updated the fandom regarding the long-delayed Transformers Universe game, announcing plans for the former MMORPG and current MOBA (or as they are referring to it as, MOTA- or Massively Online Tactical Action game.) to be released this Summer.

My name is Mark Gerhard and I’m the CEO & CTO of Jagex. We’re probably better known as the developers of the world’s largest free browser game RuneScape but now, following the past 3 years of development, Transformers Universe!

Many of you joined us on our journey for the first time when we shared a sneak peek into our aspiration for the game back in 12/12/12. Since then we’ve refined our vision, gameplay, tech and team to bring you what we believe will be the start of an entertaining, social and competitive game for all of you to enjoy over the next decade and beyond!

2013 was a critical year in the evolution of Transformers Universe. It was essential that we just knuckled down and got on with the core gameplay, and that unfortunately meant there was not much news to share for anyone outside of Jagex.

However from today onwards you can expect regular updates, and soon all start participating first-hand as the game moves from core development, through each stage of community participation, balancing, polish and iteration.

So here’s the big news. We are 100% set to launch Transformers Universe this Summer, and will be progressively inviting an ever-widening portion of the BETA community to enjoy the game before opening it to the rest of the world this summer!

With that in mind, let’s talk a bit more about the game itself.

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Merchandise By Tech4Kids
Posted by News Fetcher on February 05 '14 at 10:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Now that the first trailer for Transformers: Age Of Extinction is out there, we are slowly starting to hear more about Transformers 4 Merchandise.

For the 4th movie, it seems as though we have quite a lot of licensed material based on the Hasbro Property. And one such license holder is Tech4Kids.

For the upcoming Michael Bay movie, the company will be manufacturing super-deformed figures based on their most famous toy line; The Mash'ems. This product line will contain figures such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Drift, Crosshairs and Lockdown (speculated as AOE Mash'ems Series 1 and 2).

The company will also manufacture AOE Spar Bags. The bags are water filled and will feature Optimus Prime or Lockdown posing (image from head to toe, not just the faces). In order to spar with the Spar Bags the kids can purchase Bumblebee Fists (again, kind of Super-deformed fists). The fists will contain motion activated sound effects. We have no info regarding whether there will be a Decepticon inspired set of fists, since punching Optimus as Bumblebee just wouldn't feel right.

The company will also manufacture similar merchandise for the upcoming movie "Ninja Turtles".

Mech Ideas Techno Toon Titans Update

Good new for fans of 3rd party toys and fans of the Animated portion of our beloved Robots in Disguise. Mech Ideas, makers of the awesome Demolition Crue two pack, have provided an update to their upcoming Techno Toon Titan. The group has been quite about the project for some time now, leading fans to think it had been possibly cancelled. Thankfully Cenokibble stopped by the other day to let us know that the project is still going and he provided us with a render of the two unofficial Animated Bots Bluster and Trench (aka Not-Animated Huffer and pipes). Cenokibble states that the figures will feature:

Different torso shapes, unique for each character

Redesigned heads

Collapsible legs for alternate transformations

Shoulder joint pinned for extra strength, no maneuverability sacrificed

More pronounced angles on bodies

This isn't traditional news per say, but something cool from the 2005 Boards we ran across this morning. 2005 Boards member Tanglebrook has edited together a high quality video showcasing all the transformation sequences from the first 3 Transformers Movies. It lasts about 10 minutes, and takes you on a rapid fire walk down memory lane. Check it out below, and let him know what you think by clicking discuss!
