First look at Transformers Age of Extinction Bumblebee, Hound and Strafe Toys
Posted by News Fetcher on November 30 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of this post on 78dm.net we have our first look at three Transformers 4 Age of Extinction toys. Shown here for the first time anywhere are toy pictures of Bumblebee, Hound (under his codename Duke) and Strafe (under his codename Paulie). These are labelled us as a part of the Power Attackers / Power Battlers subline, which from the leaked Hasbro toy list a while back we know is not the main line - by appearances these three are from a Fast Action Battlers styled subline. All three sport nice chunky and simple looking transformations, but also have some nice details on them. Check them out at the link above.

TFW's Generations Waspinator Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on November 30 '13 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with our next gallery from the upcoming Generations IDW Deluxes Wave 3, and this time we've got a Predacon for you. We're not talking about the dragons from Beast Hunters or the original five from Generation 1 either, we're talking about the Beast Wars Predacons and Hall of Fame Fan's Choice winner Waspinator!

Waspinator is one of the two complete new molds in this assortment of Generations Deluxes. He is an excellently done little deluxe toy, and very accurate to the look of the CGI model of the character in the show in robot mode. The beast mode suffers a little with exposed robot hands, but is otherwise an excellently realized beast mode. In beast mode, Waspinator's insect legs can be adjusted to allow him to balance on them - which was something very few insects from the Beast Wars era could accomplish. In both modes Waspinator's wings can be made to flap at the push of a button, which is a cool feature but I'd have liked a way to lock them in the "up" position for flying poses. In robot mode, Waspinator's knees are a little restricted, which does limit his poseability a little.

Overall though these are very minor flaws which are easy enough to overlook. Waspinator is a solid release with an excellent design and a brilliant likeness to the show design of Waspinator. If you're a fan of Beast Wars or just a fan of Waspinator as a character, this is one toy that you will want to pick up. As always, open up the link below to see our gallery and judge for yourself:

Perfect Effect Warden not-Fortress Maximus Color Testshot Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 30 '13 at 03:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Perfect Effect have posted some new images of a color testshot of their upcoming Warden not-Fortress Maximus. Warden transforms into a head for the original Fortress Maximus but can also transform into a tank in his own right, and comes equipped with a gigantic cannon which is bigger than he is - and this gun can be used as a hand cannon by the original Fortress Maximus too.

Rumor - Possible Kreon Tailgate on the way?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This one is another rumor for the rumor mill, so take it with a pinch of salt.

2005 Boards member Moroni Prime noticed that on the Kre-O Nation site, when creating your username you are offered a list of Transformers names, all bar one of which are existing Kreons. The one who is not? Tailgate.

Does this mean that a Kreon Tailgate is in the works, or does it just mean whoever was tasked with picking out the list of Transformers names just like the name Tailgate and put him on the list (we should point out the list draws heavily on characters from Transformers Prime, the movie series and the War for Cybertron game - and Tailgate was a character in Transformers Prime). That being said, there is a Windcharger Kreon out there, so a white redeco may not be beyond the realms of imagination.

For now though, take this with a grain of salt.

Image attached to this story taken from the signature of 2005 Boards member SPLIT LIP, because More than Meets the Eye Tailgate is awesome.

Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Starscream Image
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some images posted via Weibo have given us our first look at the Platinum Edition Year of the Horse Starscream. He is a redeco of the Transformers Cybertron Supreme Starscream, one of the largest Transformers toys from last decade, sporting a Generation 1 inspired deco. In fact the deco also seems to take a few cues from the Legends Class Starscream which was given away as a freebie with pre-orders of Transformers War for Cybertron (check out some images of that one here). Check out the image of this new Platinum edition figure at left and see what you think.

iGear Defence Specialist Not-First Aid
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have unveiled a new reworking of their PP-05 Specialist mold. The Defence Specialist is an unlicensed version of Protectobot First Aid complete with new First Aid inspired deco and a new head modeled after the Protectobot. It is also shown with three additional heads, all based on the Autobot Ratchet - one based on the cartoon and one based on the comic, with a third head giving Ratchet a distinguished "aged" look by way of a beard. This one is listed as available now - so presumably iGear have already released him!

Possible Transformers Cloud Hot Rodimus - Voyager Springer redeco?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 29 '13 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
E-Hobby have posted the first story chapter of Transformers Cloud online. The story chapter is accompanied by an illustration showing various characters, the majority of whom are drawn from existing Transformers classic-themed lines, with Optimus Prime and Megatron being the new Transformers Cloud exclusives.

There's one exception though - to the left of the image Hot Rod (called Hot Rodimus in the story). He's not an existing toy. He seems to be a Rodimus themed redeco of the Generations Voyayger Springer mold.

Could this be a teasing first look at an upcoming Transformers Cloud exclusive, or just something the artist threw in because the script called for Hot Rod to be there? Watch this space for more news.

Empire Online Transformers Age of Extinction Coverage
Posted by News Fetcher on November 28 '13 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Empire have added an article to their website with higher-res versions of the new Transformers Age of Extinction stills we saw earlier today. Their article also fills out some character names and fills in just a few more story details.

Of particular note, Mark Wahlberg's character is now named as Cade Yeager. Nicola Peltz is confirmed as Tessa Yeager, with Jack Reynor playing her secret racer boyfriend Shane (full name given as Shane Dyson in Yahoo's coverage of the same stills). Stanley Tucci is playing Joshua, and Sophia Myles is playing a geologist named Darcy. These names were all previously listed on a leaked call sheet, though the second names were not given at that time - this leads one to assume that some of the other details given might also be true.

The cast is rounded out by Li Bingbing, who is described as (spoiler, highlight to read) "the CEO of the Chinese Transformers" and Kelsey Grammar as Harold Attinger, who is being called (spoiler again!) the film's non-robot big bad.

The article also sheds new light on what the plot of the movie involves - this one is another spoiler, highlight the text below to read:

Earth is scarred by the events of the past three movies, but is moving on after all the giant robots disappeared. Cade Yeager, an inventor, discovers a buried Transformer (we're guessing a fossilized Dinobot?) which sets the stage for the return of the rest of the Transformers

The article ends with director Michael Bay's thoughts. He has a good feeling about this movie and says it has a huge soul. And he's not ruling out staying on to make more Transformers live action movies. "Well, it's a director's world... It's a franchise world at the moment," he says in the article. "You know, Peter Jackson is still in Middle-earth..."

WTF @ TFW - Supplemental - BMOGgin'
Posted by News Fetcher on November 28 '13 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Trent Troop, who previously worked with Hasbro and Botcon license holders Fun Publications, recently sat down with TFW's own Vangelus for a special WTF@TFW supplemental podcast to discuss Trent's latest venture BMOG - Bio-Mechanical Ordinance Gestalts - and the crowdsource process, the development process, and the horrible horrible duck idea process. Be sure to check out this special podcast right here to find out more about this line and the process that brings it from concept to reality.

But that's not all, because BMOG has unveiled their next set of potential releases, Featherblight and the Non-Dino Squad. Featherblight is a bird in a similar style to Ursenal, who breaks down into 5mm pegged weapons including scimitars, a shield, blasters, rocket boosters and a gatling barrel. The Non-Dino squad are made up of three prehistoric animals frequently mistaken for dinosaurs. The trio are standalone weapons and include such a Dimetroden axe! You can discuss these latest designs on our 2005 Boards here.

Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Stills from Empire Magazine
Posted by News Fetcher on November 27 '13 at 11:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Comic Book Movie has posted some scans from the new edition of Empire Magazine, which has a Transformers Age of Extinction feature. The stills in the feature include Nicola Peltz being menaced by a big green prop claw that will be a stand in for a robot in the final film, the Autobot cars Drift and Crosshairs flanking Optimus Prime driving towards a scrapped automobile, Jack Reynor and Mark Wahlberg having what looks like a tense conversation with the old-style Bumblebee between them, and some more general shots of the cast and crew on set, including Michael Bay on location in China.

Check them all out here.

Transformers Figure Subscription Service Treadshot with Catgut New Image
Posted by News Fetcher on November 27 '13 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Collectors Club have tweeted a new image of their Figure Subscription Service Year 2 Treadshot with Catgut. Treadshot, a homage to the late Generation 1 Action Master of the same name, is a Warpath redeco. Catgut is a homage to the original Treadshot's partner Catgut, and is a reuse of the Arms Micron Jida, who originally came with the Japanese version of Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

The new image shows the Subscription Service Treadshot side by side with the original, giving a good sense of how much the new deco has been carefully tuned to make the Warpath mold look as close as it can to the original Treadshot. This fan thinks it is look pretty spot on, and cannot wait to get him in hand next year!

TFW's Generations Dreadwing Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on November 26 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in our advance looks at the next assortment of Transformers Generations Deluxe class toys we have a look at Dreadwing! Dreadwing is the other redeco / remold in the third wave of Transformers Generations IDW Comics pack-ins. He is a redeco of the stealth bomber Megatron, done to homage the Generation 2 Dreadwing ATB (which was itself to have been redecoed as a version of Megatron, so there is a nice bit of parallelism there).

As a homage to a Generation 2 era toy, Dreadwing is bright and vibrant, though fortunately the gaudiest elements of Generation 2 have been toned down for this release. You've got a nice contrast of the dark blue armor on the vehicle mode, and the lighter blue on the limbs of the robot, with some clear red plastic on the eyes and the gun to break things up. Dreadwing works really well as a reuse of the Megatron mold, and is an excellent homage to the Generation 2 toy he is based on. The broad-shouldered feel of Megatron's mold lends itself to Dreadwing, whose toy was fairly substantial and bulky, and the new head helps to distance this toy from Megatron somewhat, although there is no escaping that this is a Megatron remold, particularly with that arm cannon (which can double up as a hand weapon, so there are display options to give Dreadwing more individuality).

Overall Dreadwing is a very nice homage to the Generation 2 toy, and I have to praise Hasbro for going ahead and putting the Generation 2 Decepticon logo on the toy and on the packaging. The toy remains an excellent mold and the new head together with the vibrant deco breathes new life into the design. Very much recommended - and if the fact it is a Megatron redeco has put you off Dreadwing, I would invite you to look again.
