Oh for bootin' up cold...
The Transformers Collector's Club
has updated their website with the cover of their upcoming 54th issue, which will contain a "very revealing interview with Duane Capizzi from the Transformers: Prime series (including an exclusive coupon code for the Predacons Rising DVD), a two page spread featuring the G1 Predacons, two all-new MTMTE profiles and the final installment of BEAST WARS: Shattered Glass featuring a most epic conclusion, and a cameo appearance, that you won't want to miss!"
But that's not all! Most importantly this issue will reveal FOUR of the upcoming Generations toys (some of which we most likely have heard of in some form via the Hasbro database error a few weeks back
) and the cover of this issue reveals the first of the four: Generations Rattrap, who is portrayed in what is seemingly a hybrid design of his IDW and Beast Wars (Season One) appearances.
Who will be the other three to be revealed? Will Nightbeat, Tankor and Crosscut
be making their first appearances in the TFCC Magazine? Stay tuned to TFW2005 as the news breaks.Read Replies (0)

By way of this image uploaded to Google user content
and shared with us by 2005 boards member GabrielPrime
, we have a high-res look at the Cybertronian sword / gun prop from Transformers 4 Age of Extinction. The prop has been seen a few times on set slung over the shoulder of Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg.
This close up reveals that while the ornate design resembles something out of Middle Earth, the blade parts down the middle with what looks like a launcher or emitter in the middle. It's a pretty cool prop and one that there will hopefully be a replica of so fans can own one of these too.Read Replies (0)

Last week we gave you a look at the Generations Deluxe class Waspinator
, and this week friends we are giving you a look at another "Beast Wars Classics" toy - the Voyager class Generations Rhinox
! Rhinox was the gentle giant of the Maximals, a thinker who helped the Maximals by inventing devices for them as well as joining battle with his mighty chainguns.
For the Generations line, Rhinox has been upgraded to a Voyager class toy. Like Waspinator Hasbro has gone to great efforts to deliver a very show accurate robot mode, and the result is one of the very best looking Voyagers ever created. Rhinox has a nice bulk to him although he feels a little light on his feet, and poses extremely well, enabling him to recreate a lot of cool poses. The deco is superb, although it comes at the cost of leaving the chainguns unpainted - annoying but on balance I would say acceptable, since the robot deco is completely spot on right down to the Maximal symbols on Rhinox's head. The beast mode does have a bit of movement in the legs but is largely unposeable other than an opening jaw, but again it looks excellent with all the folds and bumps in a rhino's hide lovingly recreated.
Rhinox is one of the very best looking Transformers in a while, and you can tell he was a true labor of love for the design team. The Generations Voyager assortment has never failed to impress of late with great releases like Springer, Sandstorm and Blitzwing, and Rhinox carries on the strong performance. Very highly recommended - I invite everyone, Beast Wars fans or not, to check out the gallery linked below to see why this is such a great toy.Generations Voyager Rhinox GalleryRead Replies (0)

Director Michael Bay has logged into his Official Website
to make a statement regarding what is being circulated around the Internet. In case you missed it, you can check out our report
posted few hours ago."I Do Not Apologize For Any Transformers Movies"
says Mr. Bay. "It is a drag talking to reporters on sets. Why? Because often times they take your words and skew things to their liking? Then the crazy, lazy game of reporting on what other writers story’s reported me saying and then suddenly it becomes skewed Internet truth. So I waste my time to restate exactly what I did say, again.
No I did not ‘apologize’ for any Transformers movies. I did not say I shot the last three movies “less cool” then the new fourth installment. I was talking specifically about camera style and tone, of the first movie compared to how I shot the new installment with a very big scale, cinematic style. I was very specific in saying the first Transformers was shot in a ‘generic suburbia’ area, not trying to be cool with any cinematic flashes. I wanted it to feel like this could happen in any backyard in the United States."
Continuing on, the Director did not forget to mention about Transformers: Age Of Extinction. This includes some information about when we'll exactly see the First Transformers 4 Trailer.

Alfes2000 of the Higekuma Toy Blog has posted some nice images of the latest Kabaya Transformers gum kits. These galleries show off the Gum DX Wave 2 in all its glory. Wave 2 has three kits - one containing Overlord
, one with Brainmasters Braver and Laster
, and the third containing the third Brainmaster, Blacker
and the parts to combine the three Brainmasters into Road Caesar
(the Road Caesar parts also form a little flying drone with the original did not do). All three sets feature the small Master figures present in the original releases from the 80s in a simplified fashion, as well as compartments for them to sit in or clip into in both modes. Check out the images and see what you think.Read Replies (0)
