Japanese Generations TG-28 Legends Megatron and Starscream Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '13 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
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.

TFW's Generations Trailcutter Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '13 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next gallery, we are bringing you a look at one of the most awaited Deluxe class toys Hasbro has released in their Generations line. Ever since the Classics line was revived as Universe, fans have eagerly awaited a Trailbreaker to complete their Classics set of original 1984 Autobots. Now at long last in the new IDW comic pack-in Generations series, Trailbreaker finally has his Classics toy! Renamed Trailcutter for trademark reasons (or because Whirl convinced him that having "breaker" in his name was a bad idea) the Autobot forcefield specialist is here to fill out a gap on those Classics Autobots shelves!

We'll get the negatives out the way first for this toy - yes, the vehicle mode is quite small or "compact" you might say, and yes, the robot mode is not quite as large as perhaps a Classics Trailbreaker ought to be. And yes, the torso has a small problem staying clicked in (but not like Generations Blitzwing levels of frustration). If you put that aside, though, ou have a very nicely designed Autobot for your collection. Trailcutter is solidly built, stout and free of extraneous vehicle bits in robot mode. A lot of his vehicle mass goes on his chest and arms, giving Trailcutter a heroic and well-built robot mode that nicely evokes a modern interpretation of the Generation 1 toy as well as the robot mode design featured in the More than Meets the Eye comics. Trailcutter's weapon is a shield / blaster hybrid that can store on the back to evoke the "two missiles on the shoulders" look of the Generation 1 toy. All in all, Trailcutter is a nicely designed Deluxe class toy, well-proportioned, spot on to the art, and extremely fun to play about with.

Enough of our rambling now - open the link below to check out our full gallery of Trailcutter to judge for yourself!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers has enjoyed a partnership with General Motors throughout the first three live action movies, and that is a trend which looks set to continue with Transformers 4! According to MLive, this weekend 10-11 August 2013 will see the on-location shooting of Transformers 4 head to GM's Lansing Delta Township assembly plant. The plant is where the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave crossovers are made. According to GM this might be the first of many GM locations to be used, suggesting that Transformers 4 might involve the auto maker like never before. As always time will tell!

Super Fire Convoy 2014 Reissue
Posted by News Fetcher on August 05 '13 at 09:15 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
A very interesting pre-order has been posted at BigBadToyStore, a pre-order for none other than Super Fire Convoy from the fan-favorite series, Car Robots AKA Robots In Disguise! This was last the mainline prior to the Armada trilogy and it left big shoes to fill. It also introduced once of the most popular and unique versions of Convoy/Optimus Prime.

For those of you who missed out, the pre-order page can be accessed here. Price is $149.99. BBTS has stated that the Toys R Us exclusive Master Sword is rumored to be included. That may factor into the higher price, but we aren't completely sure. Since the sword is rumored to be included and was used for the God Fire Convoy combined mode with God Magnus...perhaps the latter isn't too far behind? Stay tuned as we'll keep you posted!

Toys R Us Canada also revealed a second Platinum Edition Chinese New Year Transformer. The second Year of the Horse Transformer is a Year of the Horse Optimus Prime. The page on Toys R Us Canada was here, but has since started redirecting to the site's index. However, 2005 Boards member mapatel got a copy of the product description, which reads as follows:

The leader of the Autobots is back and more unstoppable than ever! Everyone will know that this mighty Year of the Horse Optimus Prime figure is the ultimate Autobot, because the Matrix of Leadership fits in his chest. He'll shred his Decepticon enemies with his Energon axe in robot mode, and flatten them in truck mode! Convert his trailer to a battle station with a maintenance dock, where you can store his ion cannon and Energon axe. Your Transformers adventures will be off the hook with this Optimus Prime figure!

What this suggests about this Optimus Prime is that:

He has a Matrix that fits in his chest.

He has the Energon Axe and an Ion Cannon

He comes with a trailer which turns into a battle station and maintenance dock, and the trailer can also store the weapons.

With these facts in mind, there are very few existing Optimus Prime toys that fit this bill - leaving by process of elimination the most likely potential candidate for this release as a special Chinese New Year edition Masterpiece Optimus Prime 2.0.

As before no pictures are available, so this is speculation on our part, however once more news becomes available we shall share it with you here.

Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Starscream

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toys R Us Canada has posted a pair of interesting preorder pages, revealing a pair of new Chinese New Year Platinum Edition releases. These "Year of the Horse" releases seem to be in the same vein as past Year of the Dragon and Year of the Snake special editions, if the descriptions are anything to go by.

The first of the two is, according to Toys R Us Canada, "TRA SUPREME STARSCREAM CNY PLATINUM". There's no product pictures or description, but the additional information suggests that two AA batteries are needed. An informed opinion suggests this might be, in the same vein as the Year of the Snake Omega Supreme, a Chinese New Year re-release of the Transformers Cybertron Supreme Starscream. He's priced just shy of $120 Canadian, and scheduled for a release on the last day of this year, 31 December 2013.

Stay tuned for more news on this and all other things Transformers.
