TFW's Generations Bumblebee Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '13 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in our series of galleries looking at the Transformers Generations Wave 5 is Bumblebee! This version of the beloved yellow Autobot is based on the rebuilt body Bumblebee received at the end of his miniseries early in the Mike Costa era and that he then retained for the remainder of the ongoing. It is best described visually as a hybrid of classic and movie Bumblebee designs, giving Bumblebee a look which is both modern in respect of the resemblance to the Movie and Prime musclecar Bumblebees, but also retro with some of the nods to the original Bumblebee - in particular the headsculpt, which is a Bumblebee face very strongly based on the Generation 1 look that you can almost see Dan Gilvezan providing the voice of.

That being said, while Bumblebee has a great look, he falls far short of the other new toys in this assortment. Unlike Trailcutter, Megatron and Orion Pax, there are some vehicle mode parts left hanging off of the robot mode, in particular the whole roof of the car. But Bumblebee also falls short technically, with his elbow movement restricted by hard plastic notches, a shade of yellow plastic that may not please everyone, and the sliding panels on the lower leg feeling tight to the point you worry you might break them. On my Bumblebee also the legs, which are purely friction joints - not balljoints or even pin joints - were a bit loose at the knees. It is a pity, because there are a lot of good ideas that went into the Bumblebee design - but I was left feeling that Bumblebee perhaps should have been put back a wave to let his design be polished to the level of Megatron, Trailcutter or Orion Pax.

Transformers 4 On Set Videos 7-8 August 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '13 at 02:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As the filming in Detroit continues, more on-set videos showing off some of what is going on has come to our attention! This first video by hendrixflash on Youtube shows Hound and Bumblebee racing through the streets:



This next clip from jerry48192 shows a different angle on what is presumably the railcar drop stunt - a blue SUV is seen reversing at speed as bits of debris rain down:



This last video by Daavaaad shows the blue SUV again, this time with a camera rig mounted on it, presumably to shoot the same scene from a "in vehicle" type of angle.

Nick Roche More than Meets the Eye "The Wake" Print at Auto Assembly 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '13 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Nick Roche has posted a preview of the second More than Meets the Eye print he will have available at Auto Assembly 2013 this weekend. Titled "The Wake", it is set after More than Meets the Eye 15. It's a somber mood in Swerve's as lost friends are remembered.

Nick Roche has also tweeted another piece of art that he will have available, a Beast Hunters piece from Rage of the Dinobots, which depicts all five Dinobots VS Shockwave. Retreat... is logical.

These prints will be available at Nick Roche's table at Auto Assembly 2013 this weekend, 9 - 11 August 2013 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham, England.

Mastermind Creations Seraph Prominion Nova Prime

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Cassy Sark on Facebook has shared a selection of CGI renders of the Mastermind Creations Seraph Prominion, an unofficial version of Nova Prime / Nemesis Prime from the IDW Comics. Scaled to a similar height as Hexatron, Seraph Prominion consists of a cab which transforms into a robot and a trailer which transforms into an armor cradle, Iron Man style, before combining with the smaller robot to form the mecha-raven winged Nova Prime who looms "like a vast, predatory bird".

We have mirrored the images, check them out attached to this post.

Transformers Collectors Club Rampage and Transmutate Images
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '13 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Collectors Club has added new pages to their website showcasing the 2014 Membership Freebie figure Rampage / Protoform X as well as Transmutate, who will be sold exclusively through the Collector's Club store in 2014 and will serve as a companion piece to Rampage. Both Rampage and Transmutate use the Transformers Prime First Edition toys as their bases, Rampage is a redeco of the Deluxe First Edition Megatron with a new head, while Transmutate is a straight-up recolor of First Edition Arcee, and presumably represents what Transmutate could have been, had she not suffered the tragic accident that defined her episode of Beast Wars.

Rampage will be available free to all Transformers Collector's Club members who have an active membership through March 16 2014. Transmutate will be offered through the Collector's Club store at some point in 2014. Both characters will be featured in the Transformers Collectors Club comic strip for 2014.

The Official Transformers Collectors Club have updated the exclusives part of their website. In addition to showing off next year's membership freebie there is a placeholder graphic for the second year of the Transformers Subscription Service. The placeholder shows the head of Treadshot, who is a redeco of Generations Warpath. While he shares Warpath's head, the paint deco visible in this small image shows the Collectors Club has carefully recreated the look of Action Master Treadshot's head.

Roberto Orci on what's next for Transformers after Transformers Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '13 at 03:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Roberto Orci, who along with Alex Kurtzman excutive produced Transforemers Prime, has taken part in a brief Q&A session with IGN and confirmed his involvement in the next Transformers show.

A key point of the discussion that will interest many of you is the statement about what is coming next. "It’s not really a reboot, it’s sort of a continuation of it [Transformers Prime] in a tonally different form." - Orci goes on to explain that this means they want to service the right audiences, they don't want to scare little kids the way Transformers Prime sometimes could. Essentially a parallel series that is "connected" but friendly to the family. In response to a follow-up question on this, Orci states that the look will be more kid-friendly, but the wit will still be there, it won't be any less entertaining or any less like Transformers, but they don't want to put off little kids with the series' intensity.

One thing that is interesting is that when asked if Transformers Prime as a story will be in continuity with this series, Roberto was non-committal, explaining that this very issue is currently under discussion - so while not a complete reboot, it sounds as though the new series being a direct sequel is equally not confirmed.

TFW's Generations Megatron Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '13 at 03:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in our series of galleries looking at the all-new IDW Comics series of Transformers Generations Deluxes is the lone Decepticon in the assortment, Megatron! This Megatron is based on the stealth bomber design the Decepticon leader sported from the "Return of the Decepticons" arc through to the conclusion of Chaos - a design which from its debut in the comics, fans have clamored for a toy of. Hasbro has heard the requests and has given fans what they asked for!

The IDW Generations Megatron is a very nicely designed figure. Cast mainly in black plastic, there is some glitter incorporated to give it a bit of sparkle and keep the toy from being too flat black. The black is broken up by two different tones of purple, and a few red highlights, used sparingly. It is a simple and entirely traditional Decepticon deco, and it works. Scale wise, Megatron is a modern Deluxe size, so a little smaller than his peers from a few years ago, but ignoring relative scale on the shelf - because after all, Transformers toy scale has always been subjective - and you have a toy whose design exudes menace. Megatron is tall and slender, yet broad shouldered. Like Trailbreaker, there is a lack of vehicle parts hanging off the robot mode, everything is ingeniously hidden, with the wingtips detaching and forming the railgun. Poseability is excellent, and Megatron can assume some of his truly iconic poses with ease. Overall, this is one of the best designed Deluxes to come out of Hasbro in the Generations line so far, and even if the size does bother you, I'd still recommend taking a look at this toy - it is very, very good and lots of fun to fiddle with.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The next Transformers Legends game event has been announced! Next up is "War Dawn", which does not feature the Aerialbots or Orion Pax, disappointingly.

Vortex, Blast Off and Swindle are featured in this event as the special episode cards, and they will be facing off against an elite Autobot squad of spies and specialists led by Mirage, and featuring Trailcutter and Cliffjumper! This event kicks off today and runs through to next Tuesday August 13th. Check out the full text of the announcement after the break.

E-Hobby have also updated their preorder page for the Japanese Generations TG-29 Sandstorm with official images. The Japanese Sandstorm is notably a lot more orange, with the gun, cab and wings all done in orange plastic as opposed to the yellow or black they were in the US release. Other paint deco changes include some silver on the front bull-bars. Once again we have attached the images to this post for your perusal.

E-Hobby have updated their preorder page for the Japanese Generations TG-29 Megatron and Starscream Legends set with official pictures of the figures. The Japanese release of these Legends class toys gives Megatron a Generation 1 inspired deco rather than the IDW inspired deco of the US version. Starscream features a shinier deco and nul-ray blasters matched to the main figure's colors. Chop Shop is a darker shade looking more brown like the original Generation 1 toy, and Waspinator likewise has a modified deco with a more muted, shiny green on his body and a darker green on his arms. Check out the images attached to this news post.
