TFW's Generations Mini-Con Assault Team / Centuritron Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '14 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Wrapping up our coverage of Transformers Generation 2014 Deluxe Wave 2, we have a look at the Mini-Con Assault Team! Much like the Mini-Con teams of Transformers Armada, the Mini-Con Assault Team is a three pack of smaller Transformers, named Heavytread, Runway, and Windsheer. The trio are each a bit larger than the Mini-Cons of old - closer to Cyberverse Legion size. They also have another ability - the trio can merge to form Centuritron, a roughly Deluxe sized robot. That's seven different modes, and effectively four different robots, all in one Deluxe sized package!

Individually, each Mini-Con is roughly on a par with a good Legion class toy - each one has a great range of movement, especially Runway and Windsheer. Transformations between modes are simple, but clean. Each of the trio manages to avoid having too many obvious cues of their combined mode visible - Heavytread does look like a pair of legs from some angles, but then he is also rendered as a heavy-set robot, so he gets away with it.

Maketoys MT-03N Nemesis and Armageddon Upgrade Set Pics
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '14 at 02:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Along with their unofficial Swerve and Gears figures, Maketoys has updated their Facebook page with additional photos of two other upcoming releases. One, is additional photos of their MCB-001 Armageddon Upgrade kit for Platinum Edition Omega Supreme. This upgrade kit, as shown earlier adds wings and a proper cannon to this Hasbro released remold of Energon Omega Supreme. These new pics, show how the alternate mode looks applied to the figure. The add on parts provide a track and launch gantry for ultimate G1-ification.

Their last update today is for a figure they teased back in May of last year. The MT-03N Nemesis is yet another release of their trailer upgrade kit for the Reveal The Shield deluxe Optimus mold. This release looks similar to their recently released Hyper Novae, but instead of large wings, the figure sports lots of chains and a creepy looking cape. It's not yet known whether the TFCC Subscription figure of RID Scourge can plug into this kit as the figure comes with it's own robot, sans armor, but make sure to keep tabs on our thread for this figure in the third party forum!

Masterpiece Red Alert Reissue Coming Fourth Quarter 2014
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '14 at 10:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Good news, Masterpiece collectors! If you, like me, missed out on the chance to own Takara-Tomy's Masterpiece Red Alert the first time round, and have not yet caved and brought one on the secondary market, then you might be interested to know that Masterpiece Red Alert will be getting a reissue in fourth quarter 2014, according to our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store. We've also heard that this will probably be an early fourth quarter release, nearer to September than December.

Be sure to get preorders in if you need to fill that Red Alert shaped hole in your Masterpiece collections!

MakeToys Trash-Talk/Swerve & Cogwheel/Gears Images - First Look at My First Blaster Accessory!
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '14 at 08:45 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Coming to us via MakeToys' website, we have some new images of their unofficial Swerve and Gears figures, Trash-Talk and Cogwheel! Trash-Talk/Swerve is based on his much-beloved IDW More than Meets the Eye depiction, while Cogwheel is a retool of him into Gears.

As we had previously reported, it seems MakeToys has listened to the fans and have created a My First Blaster accessory for Trash-Talk/Swerve, based on his signature weapon from MTMTE! It seems it will be sold separately and will require assembly.

Check out the images after the jump!

IDW Transformers More than Meets the Eye #28 & Windblade #1 Pre-Order Information
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '14 at 06:30 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Hoo boy, looks like we have a whole bunch of IDW comic information to deliver to you guys.

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.

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).

Transformers Rescue Bots Optimus Primal Artwork
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '14 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Marvin S. Mariano, who did the artwork and toy designs for the new Transformers Rescue Bots Rescan series, shared some cool artwork with the Transformers Rescue Bots Facebook group.

What you can see in this artwork are the artwork for the new forms of Bumblebee and Heatwave in both their modes - and, in dead center, a good look at the art for the new Rescue Bots Optimus Primal, whose identity as a mecha T-Rex was confirmed at the UK Toy Fair. In beast mode, the new Optimus Primal is a hybrid of a T-Rex and an excavator, with a shovel on his tail and smokestacks for ears; in robot mode, he draws on a bit of a Beast Wars Megatron homage and sports the T-Rex head for a right arm.

Check out the image and see what you think of the all-new Optimus Primal for the Rescue Bots series.

Takara-Tomy T-Arts Megatron?
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '14 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have announced a new lineup of collector figures, named Takara-Tomy Arts, or to use its unfortunate abbreviation, T-Arts. The lineup has not yet been fully announced but fans of the previous non-transformable figure releases like the Revoltechs or Mega SCF series might want to keep an eye on this one - the website teaser image shows a silhouette which is very clearly a Generation 1 Megatron.

It may well be a placeholder - but be sure to watch this space for more information.

Emiliano Santalucia updated his blog today with design art for Generations Cosmos and Mini-Con partner Payload.

Mr. Santalucia went on to say the following about the sketches:

Time from another of my Transformers Generations figure designs!
Transformers Generations Legends Class Cosmos and Payload! These were done at the same time of Rhinox and Waspinator, but as the last ones. There was very little time to complete them so I had to rush just rough pencil sketch. Overall, they are the ones that turned out to be more different in the final product, especially Payload which Alt Mode was changed. I guess it was also due to the technical needs of the figures.
But lots of the details remained the same!
Next time, Rattrap!


Keep the awesome posts coming Mr. Santalucia!
