MP-20 Masterpiece Wheeljack - Amazon Japan Updates with New Photos
Posted by News Fetcher on March 26 '14 at 10:00 PM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Amazon Japan has updated its listing for Masterpiece Wheeljack with some photos showing off a few different angles. While we have seen a full figure reveal colored recently in the news we previously reported, we do get another clear look with these photos. We get a closer look at the head sculpt and some head articulation, and we also get to see his small handgun. We get a much clearer look of the alt mode as well, with and without the missile launcher attached in "attack" mode. Masterpiece Wheeljack is still slated for an August 2014 release, but these photos are certainly getting us closer and closer to the finish line of this figure's release. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled to TFW2005.COM for all of your Masterpiece Transformers news and feel free to join our ongoing discussion on this figure after the jump!

Cinemacon 2014 Transformers Age Of Extinction Update: Cast Interviews, Detailed Footage Description
Posted by News Fetcher on March 26 '14 at 12:16 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Cinemacon 2014 is in full swing and the highlight of the show is Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Every journalist who had the privilege to watch 15 minutes of footage from Transformers 4, highly praise what they saw and calls it as one of the best movies for 2014 and the best Michael Bay Transformers movie to date. They said that the acting is top notch, with drama and appropriate jokes at the right time and completing all of it with top quality action.

There is also one other person whom they praise. And that is actor Mark Wahlberg. Journalists at the show floor not only praised his acting on Transformers: Age Of Extinction but also mentioned about his great passion for the 4th movie and the fact that how well he treated the journalists. He has shown nothing but courtesy and nothing but respect towards them. On one video, Mr. Wahlberg even advices a news reporter not to swear in front of the public when the said reporter accidentally did after mixing up some words he was suppose to say.

Nicola Peltz looked stunning and along with her co-star Jack Reynor, commented on the Principal Photography of TF4.

And last but certainly not least… it's IO9 who brings us the best description of the footage shown during the Cinemacon. They have also included a detailed description of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer which is due later today.

Check out all of that and more… after the jump. But do be careful of the Spoilers you will find.

First Look At Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Calendar
Posted by News Fetcher on March 26 '14 at 07:15 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
About a month ago, we brought you the news of a Transformers: Age Of Extinction Calendar. Today, our site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store is giving us our first glimpse of the artwork.

Unfortunately, it's not final rendered art but rather the Promotional Artwork we've seen so many times. However, we can't judge a book by its cover... hopefully, we'll get to see what's inside pretty soon.

This calendar is distributed by Landmark Calendars; a subdivision of Acco Brands USA Llc and will be available July/August 2014.

Checkout the image featuring Optimus Prime riding Grimlock while carrying the Sword Of Judgement and the Sentinel Shield, after the jump.

Toys "R" Us Exclusives - Optimus 2-Pack and Two Masterpiece Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '14 at 10:15 AM
By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
TFW2005 member Icespark has sent us an exclusive look at some upcoming Toy "R" Us Exclusives! These include the very first look at the Optimus Prime - Then and Now 2-Pack, as well as confirmation on two upcoming Masterpiece figures...Prowl and Sunstorm. I'll let Icespark, who will be heading for surgery (hope all goes well) take it from here...
Quote:
Hi All!

I went and did some final digging about, and, managed to unearth a few last gems. These photos are internal product images of the upcoming Toysrus exclusives: Masterpiece Sunstorm, Masterpiece Prowl, and, the Then/Now styled Optimus Prime two pack.

The interesting thing on Sunstorm is the additional red on his torso.

To my shock, the "Then" version of Optimus Prime, is apparently, the Hybrid Style Convoy figure! I'm kind of surprised to see this, as, I was really, really, expecting the "Ultimate Battle" deluxe Optimus.

This will be the last set of news that I'll be able to provide for a while, as, I'm heading in for surgery, and, will be gone for a long time. Hope you all enjoy!
So read on to check out the images.

Well, it would appear that the upcoming recently revealed Masterpiece Bumblebee toy is sure going to be a load of fun to play with! Why, you ask? Well, Takara designer Shogo Hasui has been tweeting his heart out with lots of new images of the figure.
By clicking on the title bar you'll get to see the following:

Size comparison with MP-17 Prowl - Showing that Bumblebee is about half the size of the Autobot Masterpiece cars

Rear Image of figure - Showing how the back half of the car and spare tire rest in robot mode. Also shown in this image are additional close ups of both faces (regular and masked)

Profile image of Spike's Exo-suit in Vehicle mode - Showing us that the spike's head will be able to rotate and look forward. Perfect for seeing where one is going.
Jump in on the discussion on the 2005 boards after the jump!

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Utilizing Dolby Atmos Sound System
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '14 at 05:16 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
There is a saying "History has a way of repeating itself". Same can be applied when considering what happened 3 years ago and now. Back in 2011 at the Cinemacon it was revealed that Transformers: Dark Of The Moon will utilize Dolby’s 7.1 Surround Sound System. This time for Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Dolby reveals that the movie will feature their Atmos Surround Sound System. Of course the news doesn’t come as a surprise since Michael Bay himself revealed the fact that he will be using the Dolby Atmos system for Transformers 4 about one year ago.

So, what can we expect from this technology? Here's what Dolby has to say...

Benefits of Dolby Atmos

Delivers a powerful and dramatic new cinema sound listening experience

Allows sounds to move around the theatre to create dynamic effects

Reproduces a natural and lifelike audio experience that perfectly matches the story

Adds overhead speakers for the most realistic effects you’ve ever heard

Reflects the artist’s original intent, regardless of theatre setup

Employs up to 64 speakers to heighten the realism and impact of every scene

Artistic Freedom
For filmmakers, details matter—a lot. And Dolby Atmos gives filmmakers full creative control over the placement and movement of sound around the audience. This completely new level of artistic freedom enables precise matching of audio to onscreen action.
Dialogue follows characters. Sound effects track with camera pans. Ambient sounds envelop you. For the first time, you’ll hear the whole picture.

Botcon 2014 Exclusive Devcon Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '14 at 11:16 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Botcon have unveiled their third 2014 convention exclusive, which is sure to please a lot of fans. The third 2014 exclusive is from the "Knight" faction, and is the one and only Devcon, a retooled Generations Scourge with a new head.

This is the first time that the character Devcon will have appeared in toy form. The character was introduced in the 1985 cartoon episode "The Gambler" where he helped the Autobot Smokescreen recover the rest of the Autobots from an alien fighting arena. His brief appearance as an Autobot aligned bounty hunter has afforded him a sort of "Boba Fett" kind of mystique, and he's been included on many lists of "obscure Transformers deserving toys".

(Although we say this is the first time that Devcon will get a toy release, a Devcon was one of many exclusives planned by former license holders 3H for their 2005 convention, but their loss of the license meant this never materialized).
