Mastermind Creations Terminus Rapidus and Maketoys Quantron Vehicle Images
Posted by News Fetcher on December 02 '13 at 11:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Site sponsor TFsource has sent out a catalog for the holiday season and it contains some looks at new 3rd party unofficial Transformer products. First up, is the next project from Mastermind Creations. Terminus Rapidus will be a Quickswitch homage and has cleverly been teased before in the form of their "Steelian Scientist" teasers (Cyclops, Doctrinus Scope, Physicus Tempest) which were all Mastermind Creations way of showing the various alternate modes. This doesn't mean these figures won't be released, just that Terminus Rapidus is most likely first. To top off this exciting news, Mastermind Creations has sent us a clear picture of the prototype!

Also shown in the TFsource catalog is our first look at the individual images of Maketoys next combiner, Quantron. This is our first look at the individual vehicle modes of the groups next combiner homage of G1 Computron.

You can join the discussion for the Maketoys Quantron in vehicle modes in the thread here, or click on the title bar to discuss Mastermind Creations Terminus Rapidus

Steve Aoki Involved With Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Soundtrack?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 01 '13 at 06:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
It appears as though Grammy nominated American electro house musician Steve Aoki is involved with the Soundtrack of Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Few of hours ago, the artist Tweeted saying that he's discussing Transformers 4 over dinner with Director Michael Bay:

"Discussing war politics between the autobots & decepticons over dinner w/ #michaelbay s4te #transformers4"

Mr. Aoki recently collaborated with Linkin Park to deliver a song for their latest album "Recharged" (not counting Underground 13). "A Light That Never Comes" reached 55,000 download during the 1st week of release in US alone. You can check out the music video, after the jump.

TFW's Generations Skids Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on December 01 '13 at 08:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Rounding out our look at the Generations Deluxe IDW Comics Wave 3 is a look at Skids! Skids is a talented Autobot - a theoretician by training, he is also an "outlier", an Autobot with an unusual talent, which in his case is the ability to learn at an exceptional speed. He was picked up by the crew of the Lost Light suffering from memory loss and joined their quest to search for the Knights of Cybertron. As such he is a very special toy, because not only is he the last of the 1984 and 1985 cars to get a Classics update, but he is also a member of the Lost Light crew, which are always welcome releases.

Skids is a really fun toy. He is not flawless, because he does have a bit of limited movement in his shoulders and his backpack does sometimes make him a little tricky to balance. But he also has a very sharp look, strongly conveying both the concept of an updated version of Generation 1 Skids and also capturing the feel of the character from the comic. He also has an absolute mountain of weaponry, including two double-barreled shoulder cannons, two shoulder mounted banks of missiles, 8 missiles per shoulder, twin lasers in each arm which swing out to either side of the wrist, plus liquid nitrogen rifle and the nudge gun. The latter two weapons can combine into a larger weapon. Almost all these weapons can tuck away as well, so Skids can be displayed in a nice variety of configurations.

All in all, Skids is a good release, and a lot of fun. He is very much the spirit of a Classics update of the original toy, and the sheer amount of guns makes for lots of posing options. If the shoulders had a little more freedom to move, he'd probably be perfect. Even so, with his wave now hitting US retail, I cannot recommend this one enough. He's worth hunting down and adding to your collection. Check out the gallery at the link below and see for yourself.

Figure King December 2013 Scans
Posted by News Fetcher on December 01 '13 at 07:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of Toyworld.com.hk, we have some scans of the December edition of Figure King magazine. The headlines here are that the decos of the Japanese Armada Starscream and Mini-Con Team are now revealed. The Mini-Cons are largely unaltered from their US releases - Starscream however has a black cockpit, thinner red stripes on the trim of his wings, additional off-white detailing on his boots and red feet, among other changes. Generally the changes make him more closely resemble the animation model of Transformers Armada Starscream.

Along with the coverage we previously reported on of the new Transformers Cloud Optimus Prime and Megatron, there is some coverage of the December Japanese Generations series releases Sandstorm and the Legends Class Megatron, Starscream, Chop Shop and Waspinator four pack.

Rounding it all off is a look at Masterpiece Smokescreen, and a look at the Kabaya Gum DX Wave 2 set of Overlord and Road Caesar - with the Brainmasters and Powermasters seemingly being intact in spite of the reduced sizes of the kits!

First look at Transformers Age of Extinction Bumblebee, Hound and Strafe Toys
Posted by News Fetcher on November 30 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of this post on 78dm.net we have our first look at three Transformers 4 Age of Extinction toys. Shown here for the first time anywhere are toy pictures of Bumblebee, Hound (under his codename Duke) and Strafe (under his codename Paulie). These are labelled us as a part of the Power Attackers / Power Battlers subline, which from the leaked Hasbro toy list a while back we know is not the main line - by appearances these three are from a Fast Action Battlers styled subline. All three sport nice chunky and simple looking transformations, but also have some nice details on them. Check them out at the link above.

TFW's Generations Waspinator Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on November 30 '13 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with our next gallery from the upcoming Generations IDW Deluxes Wave 3, and this time we've got a Predacon for you. We're not talking about the dragons from Beast Hunters or the original five from Generation 1 either, we're talking about the Beast Wars Predacons and Hall of Fame Fan's Choice winner Waspinator!

Waspinator is one of the two complete new molds in this assortment of Generations Deluxes. He is an excellently done little deluxe toy, and very accurate to the look of the CGI model of the character in the show in robot mode. The beast mode suffers a little with exposed robot hands, but is otherwise an excellently realized beast mode. In beast mode, Waspinator's insect legs can be adjusted to allow him to balance on them - which was something very few insects from the Beast Wars era could accomplish. In both modes Waspinator's wings can be made to flap at the push of a button, which is a cool feature but I'd have liked a way to lock them in the "up" position for flying poses. In robot mode, Waspinator's knees are a little restricted, which does limit his poseability a little.

Overall though these are very minor flaws which are easy enough to overlook. Waspinator is a solid release with an excellent design and a brilliant likeness to the show design of Waspinator. If you're a fan of Beast Wars or just a fan of Waspinator as a character, this is one toy that you will want to pick up. As always, open up the link below to see our gallery and judge for yourself:

Perfect Effect Warden not-Fortress Maximus Color Testshot Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Perfect Effect have posted some new images of a color testshot of their upcoming Warden not-Fortress Maximus. Warden transforms into a head for the original Fortress Maximus but can also transform into a tank in his own right, and comes equipped with a gigantic cannon which is bigger than he is - and this gun can be used as a hand cannon by the original Fortress Maximus too.

Rumor - Possible Kreon Tailgate on the way?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This one is another rumor for the rumor mill, so take it with a pinch of salt.

2005 Boards member Moroni Prime noticed that on the Kre-O Nation site, when creating your username you are offered a list of Transformers names, all bar one of which are existing Kreons. The one who is not? Tailgate.

Does this mean that a Kreon Tailgate is in the works, or does it just mean whoever was tasked with picking out the list of Transformers names just like the name Tailgate and put him on the list (we should point out the list draws heavily on characters from Transformers Prime, the movie series and the War for Cybertron game - and Tailgate was a character in Transformers Prime). That being said, there is a Windcharger Kreon out there, so a white redeco may not be beyond the realms of imagination.

For now though, take this with a grain of salt.

Image attached to this story taken from the signature of 2005 Boards member SPLIT LIP, because More than Meets the Eye Tailgate is awesome.

Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Starscream Image
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some images posted via Weibo have given us our first look at the Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Starscream. He is a redeco of the Transformers Cybertron Supreme Starscream, one of the largest Transformers toys from last decade, sporting a Generation 1 inspired deco. In fact the deco also seems to take a few cues from the Legends Class Starscream which was given away as a freebie with pre-orders of Transformers War for Cybertron (check out some images of that one here). Check out the image of this new Platinum edition figure at left and see what you think.

iGear Defence Specialist Not-First Aid
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have unveiled a new reworking of their PP-05 Specialist mold. The Defence Specialist is an unlicensed version of Protectobot First Aid complete with new First Aid inspired deco and a new head modeled after the Protectobot. It is also shown with three additional heads, all based on the Autobot Ratchet - one based on the cartoon and one based on the comic, with a third head giving Ratchet a distinguished "aged" look by way of a beard. This one is listed as available now - so presumably iGear have already released him!

Possible Transformers Cloud Hot Rodimus - Voyager Springer redeco?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
E-Hobby have posted the first story chapter of Transformers Cloud online. The story chapter is accompanied by an illustration showing various characters, the majority of whom are drawn from existing Transformers classic-themed lines, with Optimus Prime and Megatron being the new Transformers Cloud exclusives.

There's one exception though - to the left of the image Hot Rod (called Hot Rodimus in the story). He's not an existing toy. He seems to be a Rodimus themed redeco of the Generations Voyayger Springer mold.

Could this be a teasing first look at an upcoming Transformers Cloud exclusive, or just something the artist threw in because the script called for Hot Rod to be there? Watch this space for more news.

Empire have added an article to their website with higher-res versions of the new Transformers Age of Extinction stills we saw earlier today. Their article also fills out some character names and fills in just a few more story details.

Of particular note, Mark Wahlberg's character is now named as Cade Yeager. Nicola Peltz is confirmed as Tessa Yeager, with Jack Reynor playing her secret racer boyfriend Shane (full name given as Shane Dyson in Yahoo's coverage of the same stills). Stanley Tucci is playing Joshua, and Sophia Myles is playing a geologist named Darcy. These names were all previously listed on a leaked call sheet, though the second names were not given at that time - this leads one to assume that some of the other details given might also be true.

The cast is rounded out by Li Bingbing, who is described as (spoiler, highlight to read) "the CEO of the Chinese Transformers" and Kelsey Grammar as Harold Attinger, who is being called (spoiler again!) the film's non-robot big bad.

The article also sheds new light on what the plot of the movie involves - this one is another spoiler, highlight the text below to read:

Earth is scarred by the events of the past three movies, but is moving on after all the giant robots disappeared. Cade Yeager, an inventor, discovers a buried Transformer (we're guessing a fossilized Dinobot?) which sets the stage for the return of the rest of the Transformers

The article ends with director Michael Bay's thoughts. He has a good feeling about this movie and says it has a huge soul. And he's not ruling out staying on to make more Transformers live action movies. "Well, it's a director's world... It's a franchise world at the moment," he says in the article. "You know, Peter Jackson is still in Middle-earth..."

Trent Troop, who previously worked with Hasbro and Botcon license holders Fun Publications, recently sat down with TFW's own Vangelus for a special WTF@TFW supplemental podcast to discuss Trent's latest venture BMOG - Bio-Mechanical Ordinance Gestalts - and the crowdsource process, the development process, and the horrible horrible duck idea process. Be sure to check out this special podcast right here to find out more about this line and the process that brings it from concept to reality.

But that's not all, because BMOG has unveiled their next set of potential releases, Featherblight and the Non-Dino Squad. Featherblight is a bird in a similar style to Ursenal, who breaks down into 5mm pegged weapons including scimitars, a shield, blasters, rocket boosters and a gatling barrel. The Non-Dino squad are made up of three prehistoric animals frequently mistaken for dinosaurs. The trio are standalone weapons and include such a Dimetroden axe! You can discuss these latest designs on our 2005 Boards here.

Comic Book Movie has posted some scans from the new edition of Empire Magazine, which has a Transformers Age of Extinction feature. The stills in the feature include Nicola Peltz being menaced by a big green prop claw that will be a stand in for a robot in the final film, the Autobot cars Drift and Crosshairs flanking Optimus Prime driving towards a scrapped automobile, Jack Reynor and Mark Wahlberg having what looks like a tense conversation with the old-style Bumblebee between them, and some more general shots of the cast and crew on set, including Michael Bay on location in China.

Check them all out here.
