Hasbro Official Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Website Update - Info, Images, Games And More
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '14 at 09:15 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Hasbro has updated their Official Transformers Toy Website with a new look and content to market their upcoming toyline for Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

The site gives us a very detailed look at the new simpler transformation.

If you visit the Games menu you'll find some neat little Flash games featuring the characters from the movie; including Lockdown, Bumblebee, Drift and Grimlock .
"Energon Rally" features a side-scrolling Temple Run type of gameplay while "Feed Grimlock" features Kre-O toys where you… well, feed Vehicons to Grimlock (This is a game for kids!?!) in an Angry Birds style gameplay. Construct-bots game has been updated with AOE parts and will allow you to create your own Grimlockdown.

Toys menu contains info and images of AOE Toys and you can virtually Transform the toys via the Bots menu.

Videos menu contains the trailers (which we've seen before) and might get updated with new content. So watch out for that.

Also worth noticing is a "Coming Soon" notice for the Transformers 4 Mobile Game App.

...and one more thing about the site: SPOILERS!

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1997
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '14 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
1997 arrived and the Beast Wars entered their second year. The toys developed and became more complex, dropping some elements such as battlemasks and flip-changers, but also bringing back limited triple changing and combiners. Transformers returned to Japan once again with “Beast Wars: Super Robot Lifeform Transformer”, both as a toyline and also for the first time in seven years, a cartoon (albeit a dub of Mainframe’s work heavy on adlibbing). Amid all of this, the first Botcon Japan was held, and Kenner experimented with bringing back vehicle Transformers with the Machine Wars…

Fanstoys Soar Red and Blue Version, Unofficial Snarl, Sludge and Grimlock Announced
Posted by News Fetcher on April 20 '14 at 08:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Popular 3rd party group, Fanstoys, have updated with information on their next release as well as three more releases planned after that. You may know Fanstoys based off of their popular fan produced, unofficial Masterpiece Shockwave, Quakewave. Due for release soon is Scoria, their follow up, an unofficial Masterpiece Dinobot Slag. Tonight, the group has updated with two options for their third intended release named Soar, an unofficial Masterpiece Swoop. Their take on Dinobot Swoop will be available in two different color options. Red, for fans of the G1 toy, and Blue, for fans of his appearance in the original G1 cartoon.

On top of this exciting news, we have a picture revealing Fantoys next three releases after Scoria and Soar. The lineup of toys is called Iron Dibots, and unofficial Masterpiece versions of Snarl, Sludge and finally Grimlock will follow suit. Grimlock is surprising, as fans already have a well represented Masterpiece version of the character. But, fans unhappy that Scoria is going to be taller than the Hasbro/Takara release will be happy to hear a more scaled version is being planned.

Check out the new pics after the break!

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1996
Posted by News Fetcher on April 20 '14 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With the demise of Transformers Generation 2, the Transformers brand once again faced oblivion, and this time, it looked like Transformers might disappear from store shelves worldwide. Hasbro decided to take a gamble and hand the brand over to their subsidiary, Kenner, who had made the Star Wars and Super Powers lines in the 70s and 80s, and was doing well with Batman at the time. The result was a complete rebooting of the Transformers franchise. Cars, jets and other vehicles gave way to realistic animals with molded fur texture. Subgroups disappeared and line-wide size classes were established. Articulation on a level with the Cyberjets and other later Generation 2 designs became the norm.

The Beast Wars had begun.

IDW Transformers: Phase 1 Omnibus Edition Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 20 '14 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Amazon.com has added a new preorder page for a Transformers: Phase 1 Omnibus Edition. The omnibus edition collects the entirety of the Transformers: Infiltration, Escalation and Devastation miniseries written by Simon Furman, which together kicked off the IDW Transformers comics universe. The preorder listing bills the omnibus as the "collection of the first three arcs of IDW's Transformers continuity", though it seems someone forgot a little thing called Stormbringer...

The omnibus volume presents a great way to get up to speed on the earliest part of IDW's Transformers universe. It's a paperback, priced at $21.34 and due for a release on September 16, 2014. There is no cover art available for this volume yet - so for now, enjoy this cover art from Transformers: Infiltration #0, pulled from the TFW comic resources section.

IDW Shares New Transformers Comic Information at WonderCon Panel
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '14 at 02:01 PM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Comic Book Resources is bringing us the full details on what IDW shared at their WonderCon panel, which was apparently very busy and packed with fans. Leading the panel was John Barber along with Mairghread Scott, Flint Dille, and others. They each took the time to share some details about what the future of Transformers comics will hold in Robots in Disguise, Windblade, and More than Meets the Eye, and more. In addition, some other trivia was also shared. To give a brief summary...

• Some more details of how Windblade came into being
• More on the previously-reported Primacy series that Dille is writing
• Unfortunately for movie fans, it is confirmed that there will be no prequel comic for Age of Extinction
• Some details about the Transformers vs. GI Joe crossover comic, explaining how well it's coming along
• Barber also goes into detail about how the idea of Autobot Megatron came into being
• Who will be leading the Decepticons in Robots in Disguises' second season
• More on Soundwave's character
• On the subject of a possible My Little Pony/Transformers crossover, the response was that it had been pushed for, but there appears to be no concrete plans at the moment
• Another fan asked Barber the possibility of publishing Megatron's "gospel", Towards Peace. Unfortunately, there are no plans for that at the moment (but fingers crossed there's a chance of it happening in the future!)
• Finally, Windblade's character is gone into a little bit more

You can check out the full details after the jump (but beware of spoilers!) and discuss on the boards!

Chevy Trax Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Robot Mode Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '14 at 12:15 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
A new pic (via EvoLife) of an official statue by Chevrolet reveals the possible robot mode of the Chevy Trax.

The robot mode seems to be a mix between the red Kreon which comes with the Transformers: Age Of Extinction Kre-O set "Lockdown Air Raid" and the other Vehicons. On the official Press Release, the red Kreon was addressed as Sideswipe. We currently do not know whether the name is a mistake or a non-movie character. During the principal photography of Transformers 4 and on the recent video by Chevy, the Trax was seen rolling with Galvatron.

The statue was revealed as a promotional campaign by Shanghai General Motors. You can find out more info from our previous News Post.

30 Years of Transformers in 30 Days - 1995
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '14 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
And so we come to 1995, what would prove to be the final year of the Transformers Generation 2 line. 1995 brought some great new toys, and the return of the Gobots, but even with these new releases, though, the Generation 2 toyline stalled. Planned releases were cancelled, and once again, it looked like the Transformers were going away completely. Meanwhile, the Transformers line was revived in Japan, with a limited release of the new mold Generation 2 toys in new packaging, and other international markets continued onward with more toys that never made it to the US.

DeNA Explains Transformers: Rising Mobile Game
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '14 at 04:00 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
DeNA has updated their Transformers: Legends Blog to inform fans about the mobile game Transformers: Rising. Their explanation shoots down the info provided by 2P earlier this week.

The post says:

"Hey guys,

As you may have heard, there's a new DeNA game being developed titled Transformers Rising. We wanted to take a quick moment to address some of the misconceptions surrounding it.

For clarification, this game is being developed by our sister studio in China, and is in no way affiliated with, or a sequel to TRANSFORMERS: Legends.

There are currently no plans for a US release.

There is no beta testing currently going on. Claims of invitation and access to a Transformers Rising beta are completely fabricated for reasons unknown to us.

This game’s development and existence does not affect or influence TRANSFORMERS: Legends in any way. We have heard a few players suggesting that this game’s arrival will mark the end of TFL, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

TRANSFORMERS: Legends is running strong with a bright future ahead of it, and we want to make sure that all of our loyal players are well aware of that.

Roll out!
The TRANSFORMERS: Legends Team”

DMY Studio Classics Ultimate Battle Optimus Prime Upgrade Kit
Posted by News Fetcher on April 19 '14 at 03:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Meteor Operation have shared some images of a new third party accessory set. This set is for the 2006 release Deluxe Classics Optimus Prime, who was available in the "Ultimate Battle" two pack and has seen a good number of reissues since, including in the Japanese Transformers United line.

The set consists of a pair of new alternate heads, an Energy Ax, a Matrix which can be held in the toy's hands and an Ion Blaster modeled on the one wielded by the original Optimus Prime. Since these are all done using 5mm pegs, the weapons and Matrix might also be compatible with your other Transformers which have 5mm fist holes - but as always remember that this is not an official Hasbro Transformers product.
