Transformers 4 Detroit Filming On Set Pictures, Video and Report
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '13 at 01:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers 4 is filming in Detroit today at the set that was designed to double up as Hong Kong, and by all accounts, the action being filmed is a positively explosive action / fight scene involving Mark Wahlberg and others running out of a restaurant and sheltering behind Autobot Hound in vehicle mode. Lots of pictures of the filming have been posted, both from people observing the set and from news outlets including Michigan Movies and More and The Detroit Free Press, the latter of whom also has a report about what is going on today on set.

There are also some videos showing the action being filmed on set, of which this one by PishPosh.tv on Vimeo shows the lead up to the explosions (and Autobot Hound!) while this one from MLive shows a better view on the explosions which are in typical Michael Bay fashion.

Transformers Legends Game Covert Operations Episode
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '13 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The next event for the Transformers Legends game has been posted, and begins today! Hot on the heels of the "Full Assault" event, we now have an event called "Covert Operations" which brings us a clash between Autobots Prowl and Blaster (and by the looks of it, his cassettes) and Soundwave (who has also brought minions along)

Autobot operations have seen a series of setbacks lately. Each incident in itself may seem harmless, but the Autobots Blaster and Prowl have seen a pattern emerging where every major Autobot operation is slowly hampered and brought to a slowdown. Too delicate for a regular Decepticon ploy, this Decepticon operation is all about stealth, infiltration and hit and run attacks. In a response the Autobots send their best operatives that are the perfect fit to counter this new threat…

The poster is also tagged "arrival of the evolution cards" so we might also see some new gameplay features added with this event.

TFW's Botcon 2013 Boxed Set Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '13 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Today we are proud to share with you our first Botcon 2013 Exclusive Toy Galleries. Tonight we are kicking off with galleries of the five toys from this year's convention boxed set, Machine Wars Termination.

This year's boxed set showcased the myriad of the different aesthetics that exist in the Transformers line today, with the sleek clean designs of the Prime series, the retro styles of Generations and the highly detailed style of the Movie series. Though the styles vary, the choice of a unified theme in the colors - muted, homaging the original toys, and generally militaristic themed - means that the set does gel together nicely. And while some (Megaplex) stick out a bit, they all stand well as having generally some nice attractive decos, and being a fun homage to an obscure era of Transformers.

Check out the galleries of the five boxed set toys by opening the link below - and check back again tomorrow for our next update!

Mark Wahlberg's children to appear in Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '13 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
More news on the Mark Wahlberg front tonight - it seems that Transformers 4 is going to be a true family production in that Mark Wahlberg is not going to be the only member of his family in the movie! Mark Wahlberg's children visited the set in Detroit, Mark Wahlberg told Jimmy Fallon in an interview, and they were excited for their dad being in a movie for the first time ever, prompting Mark Wahlberg to ask Michael Bay if his kids could be in the movie. One impromptu audition later, and all four of the young Wahlbergs are going to appear in Transformers 4, possibly at scenes filmed in Chicago.

Mark Wahlberg Interview Hint Dinobots Involvement On Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '13 at 09:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
MTV had the pleasure of interviewing actor Mark Wahlberg and they dropped the good ol’ Dinobots question.

When asked whether there would be any Dinobots on Transformers 4 the actor replied "None of your business. You don't want me to get replaced halfway through production for divulging secrets".

Mr. Wahlberg mentioned that the new installment feels unlike anything that has come before it, thanks in part to the character he has taken on. "It feels like a completely different movie, very fresh," he said. "Obviously, it's a really interesting dynamic, being a young, single dad having a teenage daughter, trying to succeed as an inventor, having very little means and also trying to provide for my family. Then all hell breaks loose."

Mark Wahlberg Tells His Transformers 4 Daily Routine
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '13 at 01:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Metro News Canada has conducted an over-the-phone interview with actor Mark Wahlberg regarding his new movies "2 Guns" and "Transformers 4".

Of course he was tight-lipped but said that he is playing "a single dad who’s trying to raise a very attractive teenage girl in the real world."

Also he mentioned his daily routine while filming:
"I don’t go out at night anymore, so that makes it a lot easier. I go home, I’ll eat dinner, I’ll read the script and prepare for the next day’s work, and go to bed right away. I’ll wake up with a little bit of time to say my prayers, read my prayer book, maybe do a little workout, and then get back at it. And then steal a cat nap whenever I can during the work day — but (‘Transformers’ director) Michael (Bay), once he starts working, he doesn’t like to stop."

TFW2005 Gallery of SDCC Metroplex
Posted by News Fetcher on July 29 '13 at 08:45 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
The chaos of San Diego Comic Con has receded, and we are getting back to normal here at TFW2005. Today we've put up a full gallery of SDCC Metroplex, showing off all the differences. Overall Metroplex is generally the same as his mass retail release. The differences are - 2 guns instead of one, chrome face and thighs, metallic sticker sheet, 12 pack of decoy figures, and a fancy larger box.

We've highlighted those for you in our gallery - you can check all the pictures here: SDCC Metroplex Full Gallery. We've also added some key shots to this story.

If you'd like to see the retail release, a more thorough photo set from different angles are here: Generations Metroplex Full Gallery.

Do you need the 2 guns, chrome parts, but weren't able to go to SD for the con? Check em out on eBay, they're going fast!

Back in the US, we have a new Transformers toy sighting for you! The next wave of Beast Hunters Deluxe Class toys has been sighted in California, mere days after Deluxe Wave 4 also arrived on the scene. Deluxe Wave 5 adds Night Shadow Bumblebee and Prowl into the mix, and is the last of the 2013 Deluxe class assortments - the next Beast Hunters Deluxe assortment are the simplified Deluxes which Hasbro has indicated are considered part of the 2014 product line.

Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 5 was sighted in a Target in the Fox Hills mall, Culver City in California, and also in a West Hollywood Target. As seems to be a trend of late, Target seems like the best place to start your hunt for these new toys!

Sentinel Gigantic Action Megazarak / Scorponok

The third and final of our Summer Wonderfest 2013 licensed Transformers products comes to you via the Facebook of online retailer Amiami (NSFW). Sentinel, who make the Riobot series, have unveiled a prototype of their Gigantic Action Megazarak, better known as Scorponok. This robot stands roughly the same height as Fortress Maximus, if not a bit taller. Weapons including Scorponok's rifle and Zarak Shield are included, and it seems as though there will be alternate head parts for a toy / Headmasters style head or a Rebirth style head.

CMs Corporation Brave Gokin Excel Suit
Posted by News Fetcher on July 28 '13 at 02:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up from the Summer Wonderfestival 2013 by way of the Habaryan Twitter feed is a look at the prototype of CMs Corporation's Brave Gokin Excel Suit. The Excel Suit is based on the exo-suits worn by Spike and Daniel Witwicky in Transformers the Movie and Generation 1 Season 3. This image shows that in addition to the Excel Suit itself, CMs are making presumably non-poseable Spike and Daniel figures to go with the suit. This image also shows that this will be a big set, given how tall the prototype looks next to Masterpiece Rodimus Convoy.
