BotCon 2014 Confirmed For Pasadena, California June 19-22
Posted by News Fetcher on December 24 '13 at 09:15 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Although we may have saw this coming months ago, it's finally official. The BotCon 2014 webpage has just been spotted online confirming the 30th Anniversary of Transformers will be celebrated in Pasadena, California from June 19 through June 22.

The BotCon Twitter feed even poked fun at themselves calling this "the worst kept [Transformers] 30th Anniversary secret." We're all just happy we can officially start asking our employers for days off now!

As of right now there is no hotel or registration info yet, but keep it here on TFW2005 where we'll update you when the news goes live!

Start planning for BotCon 2014 everyone, it's right around the corner!

Update: Just to throw a little more teasing our way, the BotCon Twitter feed also just dropped a line that "Issue #8 of Transformers Timelines has an ad for BotCon and a HUGE hint at this years set theme!" What could this year's theme be?!

Mark Wahlberg Explains The Backstory Of His Character For Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on December 23 '13 at 05:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Actor Mark Wahlberg elaborated bit more on the backstory of Cade Yeager; his character for Transformers: Age Of Extinction. The following does not contain any robot info but a Spoiler warning is in order:

"With Transformers: Age of Extinction, did you agree to do that one for your kids?

Well, it was exciting because it was the first time my kids were really interested in a movie I was doing. Any time they see me with a gun, like Contraband or Pain & Gain, they want to see that, too, but they can’t because of the language and all that stuff. But I loved working with Michael Bay, and I thought he had a really interesting way to make it new, different, and fresh. Plus, being in movies that have the potential to be hugely successful allows me to make smaller movies that I’m really passionate about.

What’s going to make this Transformers different? The first one was OK, but then the sequels were a total mess.

It was a tighter script, and its own stand-alone thing. I think the emotional core of it, the human element, is going to be extremely powerful. It’s an ordinary man trying to do extraordinary things to save his daughter and keep her alive—and this boyfriend he didn’t know anything about. He’d had a child when he was in high school and his wife passed away, and the promise he’d made to her was that she wouldn’t date any boys until she graduated and that she’d be at the graduation—because we weren’t due to the pregnancy. So there’s an anchor to it and a realness to it that I like a lot.

[Then, an assistant comes in and places a brace around Wahlberg’s neck.]

I hurt my neck in Hong Kong, and it hasn’t gotten better yet. I just woke up in the morning and couldn’t move, but still had to shoot 10 days of crazy action."

Newsarama Discusses IDW/Hasbro Success - Teases New Collaboration?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 23 '13 at 01:15 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
An article has been posted on Newsarama discussing the success of IDW and Hasbro's collaboration. While there are many interesting tidbits in the article, this one especially stands out:

I think that’s a big moment for us—and there’s this amazing thing happening near the end of “Dark Cybertron” that I couldn’t believe it was going to make the jump to the toys,” teased Barber. “But I can’t talk about it yet, which is a lame answer but it’s really a fun twist on a well-known premise. It was something that originated—I think, if I remember right—with Mark Weber on Transformers brand team, and More Than Meets The Eye writer James Roberts and I couldn’t believe it was an idea on the table, let alone that it would be reflected in the toys. Sorry to have to be really vague about it.

What exactly could this be? A new Transformers toy/comic collaboration beginning with the end of Dark Cybertron? Or simply just more IDW-inspired figures? Or... ? Read the rest of the interview after the jump, then sound off with what you think this could be on the boards!

Year Of The Horse Masterpiece Optimus Prime To Be Released As a US Toys 'R Us Exclusive?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 21 '13 at 08:00 PM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Hat tip goes out to TFW2005 board member Optimus423 for doing some digging in Toys 'R Us inventory computers. The inventory find was for a US release of the Masterpeice Optimus Prime Year Of The Horse edition.

The strong evidence points to a local distribution center that currently has 364 of the Masterpiece figures on order. They'll ship two per case and will retail for $129.99 USD.

As of right now there's nothing to report on Year Of The Horse Supreme Starscream, but one can assume this figure may also being seeing a release as another Toys 'R Us Exclusive.

Will you be hunting for this one? Sound off after the jump!

Transformers: Human Alliance Arcade Game Available Now
Posted by News Fetcher on December 20 '13 at 09:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Sega Amusements has made an official statement couple of days ago stating that Transformers: Human Alliance Arcade Game is now released.

“Of all the current licensed titles available as video games, none has the broad demographic appeal enjoyed by Transformers,” said SEGA COO and President, Paul Williams. “Transformer’s is a brand that’s perfect for our industry; it’s family-friendly while still appealing to teens and young adults.”

To ensure supply will meet demand, SEGA has begun production on both sides of the Atlantic. “We’ve got factories in the US and UK producing Transformers so we’re able to service the needs of our markets as quickly and economically as possible,” continued Williams. “Our distributors will find a ready supply of product available to meet what is sure to be very high demand for an extraordinary title.”

Transformers – Human Alliance is now available in two configurations. Both are available now.

Transformers - Human Alliance 42” Deluxe. – Two-player up-right game with fixed position blasters.

Transformers - Human Alliance 55" Theatre – Two player sit-down environmental theatre game.


Vending Times also states the following:

The Dave and Buster's premiere, held in a venue popular with amusement industry showgoers, was a great success, according to Sega Amusements general manager Peter Gustafson. It took a good deal of planning, he explained, but showcased Sega's capabilities for effective fun center design.

Packaging Image for Million Publishing Infiltration Starscream
Posted by News Fetcher on December 20 '13 at 06:15 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Courtesy of Million Publishing's website, we now have a packaging image of their upcoming Infiltration Starscream exclusive release.

Inflitration Starscream is but the newest of the ongoing trend of "Ghost Starscream" toys, but instead of this Starscream being merely the departed spectre of a robot that will just never truly die, the transparent redeco of the Fall of Cybertron Starscream mold is based on Starscream's cloaking ability from 2012's Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.

The set also includes three of the weapons from the game, in Starscream colors: the Neutron Assault Rifle (a carry-over from the Fall of Cybertron Seeker body), the Photon Burst Rifle (taken from the Fall of Cybertron Shockwave mold), and the Path Blaster (from the Fall of Cybertron Sideswipe retool of Jazz.) While not exactly news, we have attached a photo of this upcoming exclusive wielding all three at once to the news story for your convenience.

Via the Twitter account of @ _blackburn_ we can share with you a new image of the Transformers Go Optimus EX Prime. Optimus EX Prime is a triple changer with bullet train and Chinese dragon alternate modes and an impressive robot mode with a double bladed spear. He can also combine with Kenzan and Gekisomaru to form a powered up robot, but these combinations are not shown in this promotional two page spread.

Check out the new image and see what you make of this new Optimus Prime.
