Rumor - Botcon 2014 At-Show Exclusives?
Posted by News Fetcher on June 06 '14 at 09:46 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Treat this as a rumor for now, but one with a bit of a solid foundation to it. 2005 Boards member xZAOx has shared with us a rumored list of at-show toys for Botcon 2014 - a list that, if all of this plays out, will turn out to be quite an exciting celebration of 20 years of Botcons.

The rumored toys are as follows:

Transformers Prime (mainline) Arcee as Flare-up and Flamewar (we saw Flamewar earlier today)

Transformers Prime Thundertron as Alpha Trion (based on the 3H Wreckers Alpha Trion)

Transformers Collectors Club Rampage / Prime First Edition Megatron as Shokaract

Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Optimus Prime as Apelinq

Transformers Prime Vehicon and Jet Vehicon as the Generation 1 Decepticon clones, Pounce and Wingspan

As stated, this group is a rumor right now - but we've less than two weeks to go before it can be proven, one way or another.

BotCon 2014 Souvenirs Possibly Revealed - Flamewar & PRID Transmutate?
Posted by News Fetcher on June 05 '14 at 06:31 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Thanks to two Taobao sellers, we have a look at what is possibly a BotCon 2014 souvenir figure - Flamewar! As seen in these images, she is a redeco of the Beast Hunters Deluxe Arcee mold. Flamewar has been seen as a BotCon offering before, as a redeco of Energon Arcee. This is appropriate, as much like that exclusive, this figure is both a redeco of an Arcee mold, and one that has a crossbow-type weapon.

Update: In a strange occurrence, there is also another auction from the same seller on TaoBao with a blue/tan recolor of the PRID Arcee mold. It appears to have the same color scheme used for the recent TFCC Transmutate exclusive, which used the FE Arcee mold. What exactly could this be? A mold mix-up? Simply an experiment? Or could it possibly be another attendee figure?

Check the images out after the jump, then discuss and speculate on the forums!

TFW's Generations Tailgate with Groundbuster Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on June 05 '14 at 02:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It's time again to share with you another new Transformers toy gallery! This time we have a look at a diminutive little Autobot who has shot to stardom during his tour of the galaxy on board the Lost Light - it's Tailgate, with Groundbuster.

Tailgate is, quite simply, a lovely little toy. Originally a Minibot in Generation 1, he has been updated as a new Generations Legend class toy, which puts him at around the size of a Scout, which is a perfect size for the little guy among the Classics toys. He's also spot on for how he looks in the More than Meets the Eye comic, really evoking the look of the character, especially in his face. Poseability is decent, though he's a bit constrained by his vehicle mode parts around the elbows and shoulders which do limit movement a little. Vehicle mode is a sharp looking sports car, with blue flames like the Transformers Prime Cyberverse toy.

Tailgate is partnered with Groundbuster, who is loosely based on one of the Generation 1 Construction Patrol Micromasters, Neutro. He evokes a nice Micromaster feel especially with his robot mode design, and would look right at home with the old Construction Patrol or the Sixbuilder Micromasters. His transformation is typically simple for the sidekicks to the Legends toys - he flops forward. The weapon mode transformation and design - a claw - evokes a feel of the Power Core Combiner limbs. The claw mode is an unconventional accessory for a Transformer, but it fits with Tailgate's bomb disposal role in the comic. Groundbuster is an inoffensive figure and a great complement to Tailgate.

Transformers Universe Game MOTA New Concept Art
Posted by News Fetcher on June 05 '14 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Jagex dropped us a line to let us know that they have a new piece of concept artwork out for their Transformers Universe MOTA game. This concept piece shows what looks to be a very cool scene, with a vast ship flying low over a cityscape, kicking up dust all around. If this scene is replicated in game and allows players to fight not only on the ground but also on the ship itself, we could be seeing a very cool arena to fight in.

Don't forget to check out the Transformers Universe Twitch TV channel at http://www.twitch.tv/transformersuniverse to see some live streams of the games with the developers - there is one ongoing as we type, with another due in just under 2 and a half hours at 6pm EST.

Some more Transformers toy sightings to report for you tonight! It's a one-two combo mash-up of sightings with both a new Battle Masters set and the Transformers Hero Mashers reaching US retail!

The Battle Masters set is the most movie-themed the Battle Masters series has been so far, with a set of Silver Knight Optimus Prime and Grimlock which like all sets involving Silver Optimus Prime is a Target exclusive. The set lets you use these rock-em sock-em Transformers to recreate the less than friendly terms Optimus and Grimlock will meet under in the new movie. It was spotted at a Target in Fort Wayne, IN.

Likewise in Fort Wayne, IN, we have a sighting of the first four releases in the Transformers Hero Mashers series - a series which lets you switch around the limbs of the various toys to create all kinds of Frankenstein-esque mash-ups. The assortment spotted consists of the "standard" releases Drift, Springer, Bumblebee and Starscream, and they retail at $19.99 each.

Big thanks to TFW member Rookbartley for the news tip!
