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.

Transformers Hero Mashers and Grimlock VS Silver Optimus Battler Masters Set Released
Posted by News Fetcher on June 05 '14 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
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!

Staff edit:

A more detailed article on the slow pace of AOE toys has been linked to us helping us better understand this 50% statistic we're reading about. According to an article posted on The Globe and Mail the slow start for AOE toys and 50% decrease has to do with the amount of retailer shelf space given to these toys and not necessarily sales. From the article:

"The fourth Transformers film, which is set to be released in late June, got half the shelf space at Toys R’ Us, Target and Wal-Mart as the movie’s third installment, Mr. Johnson said – this may have disappointed investors who were expecting the big-name movie to drive demand. He attributes the reduced space to increased caution on the part of retailers, and a certain amount of customer weariness."

Our original report based on the New York Post article suggested toy sales were down 50%, however the more detailed article linked above suggests the decrease we're seeing is based on the retailer shelf space given to the AOE toy line.

Original post:

According to an article by the New York Post published earlier this week, the US toy industry is suffering from slow sales on figures based around blockbuster films, which the article calls “action-figure fatigue.”

The article references three big blockbuster films supported by toy lines this summer which include the recently released The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but also includes a snippet of our main focus here on TFW: Age of Extinction. The article goes on to give some statistical comparison between the DOTM toy line launch and AOE's launch:

Happy Trailer Tuesday. We first reported it's rating a while ago, then some our members got to see it (and still can) before Disney's Maleficent. Now here it is, with its full glory. CBMTrailers uploaded Transformers 4 Age of Extinction's ''PG'' friendly trailer, but in Russian.

It's mostly an alternate version of the Payoff trailer with a few additions like extended scenes with Bumblebee, a pack of ''Wolf''s, and a hilarious encounter between Hound and Stanley Tucci's Joshua. Check it out!
