Transformers 4 Age of Extinction First Edition Optimus Prime Size Comparison
Posted by News Fetcher on January 28 '14 at 06:00 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
It was only a few days ago that we brought you the news of Amazon listing a First Edition Transformers: Age of Extinction Optimus Prime figure. Many of us had speculated that this particular mold was a Voyager.

Looks like we were dead wrong. Thanks to TFW2005 member Niv3k, we have a size comparison image of the figure standing alongside MP-10 Masterpiece Optimus Prime and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Leader class Optimus Prime. As we can see here... he's HUGE. As in, he's Leader-sized. He actually appears to be slightly bigger than ROTF Leader Prime.

The listing on Amazon is no longer up, although it should come back soon. The figure's large size should go a long way towards justifying its $60 price.

However, this does, of course, raise a few questions. If this one is actually Leader-sized, then what does it mean for the NYCC Prime, which was reportedly a Leader figure as well? Are there TWO Leader Primes in this line? Was the NYCC one simply mislabeled, and is actually a Voyager? It HAS been reported that the NYCC Prime was rather small for a Voyager, so...

Speculate away in the discussion thread!

Simon Furman on Transformers Regeneration 1 issue 98
Posted by News Fetcher on January 27 '14 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Simon Furman has posted some notes on his blog regarding next week's new issue of Transformers Regeneration 1, issue #98. Without spoiling anything, he teases a lot of the developments in the issue - including that by the time you are finished reading, "this issue should leave no one in any doubt about [Jhiaxus'] lofty niche in the pantheon of Transformers villainy". Sounds like we might learn a bit more about the goals of Jhiaxus in this series!

Check out Simon's thoughts here.

That's not all though, because artist Stephen Baskerville has also shared a piece of art - featuring "affirmative action" Rodimus Prime - on his Facebook page. Be sure to check it out as well as we get ready for issue #98 of the final arc of this conclusion of the original Marvel Comics Generation 1 story!

Planet X to make Six Not-Dinobots - Including Paddles!
Posted by News Fetcher on January 27 '14 at 02:00 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Third Party group Planet X has confirmed on their Facebook page that they are currently working on making all SIX of the Dinobots, revealing that there will be five more upcoming Dinobot releases alongside their recently released Project X Caelus, revealing art of the six Dinobots from Fall of Cybertron as a teaser.

This announcement reveals they are not only working on making their own interpretation of Fall of Cybertron Grimlock, but are working on Snarl, Slag/Slug/Slog, Sludge and a plesiosaur Dinobot who may or may not be based on Paddles! For those who don't know, Paddles originates from a chapter in the 2004 iBooks release named Transformers Legends in which the gentle Dinobot is dug up from the ground some time after being left for dead by the other Dinobots after Decepticons attacked Dinobot Island.

Between Planet X's new reveal and the inclusion of the Dinobots in the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction film and toyline, it has become clear that 2014 is the beginning of the Year of the Dinobot! Stick with TFW2005 as we bring you the latest news as it happens.

Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction - More Chinese Brand Product Placement
Posted by News Fetcher on January 26 '14 at 06:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
This subject was discussed few months back and today we have a new update to the story. There is a small article on ABL Korea today, regarding the Product Placement of Chinese Brands in the upcoming Michael Bay movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

According to the article, Trumpchi E-jet by Guangzhou Vehicle Group (known as GAC) will be featured prominently. We are yet to find out whether this car is an Autobot, A Decepticon or just another regular car which a human cast member will drive. However, the owners of GAC has requested from the production crew not to align the car with an evil faction. But the final decision was with Michael Bay.

Other than the car, we would see Laptops from Lenovo; a quite a popular brand in the Asian region. TV Manufacturer TCL Corporation will also make an appearance. Chinese Leisurewear Brand Meters/bonwe is also another product placement in the movie.

When asked from producers regarding what other brands will make an appearance, both Paramount Pictures and China Movie Channel declined to comment. ABL Korea was supposedly told that certain brands will not be revealed until very near the movie release date.

IDW Transformers Dawn of the Autobots Comics Pre-Order Information
Posted by News Fetcher on January 26 '14 at 02:45 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Hoo boy, looks like we got a whole bunch of IDW info to deliver to you guys. Some new comic pre-orders are open!

Coming to us via James Roberts' Twitter and, Mairghread Scott's Tumblr, we have some information and details about the process of pre-ordering both the first issue of More than Meets the Eye's second season, MTMTE #28, and also the first issue of the Windblade series, Windblade #1. These comics are unified by IDW's upcoming Dawn of the Autobots header.

Specifically, offered up in these posts are important details on how to go about pre-ordering whichever particular cover you want, using various specific pre-order codes at your local comic book shop. If you're unsure of where your nearest comic shop is, you can use one of the many local comic book shop locators online to find one.

Of course, since it's such a fantastic series, you would be doing a good deed by pre-ordering MTMTE #28 to show that there's still interest in the series and sales to be had.

However, pre-orders are perhaps even more critical for the Windblade series; as we had previously reported, strong pre-order numbers would mean that the 4 issue mini-series would perhaps have a chance of evolving into an ongoing series running alongside fellow ongoings More than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise. This is the series that will bring female Transformers to the fore (although it was recently revealed that female Transformers were going to be added in by James Roberts and John Barber even before Mairghread Scott was brought on board).

TFW's Masterpiece Smokescreen Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on January 26 '14 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next gallery update, we would like to share with you our gallery of Masterpiece Smokescreen! The 19th (individually numbered) release in the Transformers Masterpiece series, Smokescreen is the third in the Masterpiece Datsun trio.

While Prowl and Streak were each moderately remolded from one another, with Smokescreen Takara-Tomy completely remolded the toy - including not only the reworked front end of the vehicle mode like the Generation 1 original, but new launchers and differently designed shoulders. This is all in aid of giving Smokescreen a cartoon accurate look, and it gives the toy its own identity when compared to the other two Datsun Masterpieces.

The deco on this release is simply gorgeous. Smokescreen's rally car deco is faithfully recreated, albeit with new sponsor details (including a reference to Devcon, who made an appearance in "The Gambler", Smokescreen's season 2 spotlight episode). The end result is extremely sharp, and very pleasing if like me you're a fan of Smokescreen.

Poseability is the same as the other Datsun Masterpieces and is top-notch. You can get a lot of great poses out of Smokescreen, and the different accessories supplements the display options. He's a first-class release in the Masterpiece series, and a must buy for fans of the character, or those wanting to pick up a high-end, collector-oriented release.

Check out our gallery at the link below to see for yourself.

Transformers Battlemasters Bumblebee, Barricade, Prowl and Starscream Larger Images

By way of online store Urban Collector, we can share with you some larger images of the Transformers Battlemasters Bumblebee, Barricade, Prowl and Starscream figures. These guys look to be Transformers crossed with rock-em sock-em robots. Interestingly the Autobots and Decepticons are being listed as different assortments - whether that means they come in different cases or it's just how this retailer is breaking it down is unclear. Time (and US Toy Fair 2014) will tell.
