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.

This week in Transformers history - 1983
Posted by News Fetcher on November 25 '13 at 01:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As many of you are no doubt aware, next year is the 30th anniversary of Transformers, with May 8 2014 being the official date of the 30th anniversary. But did you know that a very important event which would shape Transformers as we know it took place 30 years ago this week?

The year was 1983. Hasbro had approached Marvel comics to write the backstories for a new toyline they were bringing to the US market - The Transformers. However, the initial names and bios written by Dennis O'Neil were rejected by Hasbro, leaving Marvel editor Jim Shooter to look to one of his other editors / writers. Jim Shooter ultimately asked Bob Budiansky to take up the task. Bob was given a very short timescale to provide names and bios to many of the initial 28 Transformers - a single week, with the deadline falling in Thanksgiving!

But Bob Budiansky rose to the challenge, and through him many characters including Megatron were named and given the bios that have helped shape their personalities for the past 30 years.

So in this week of Thanksgiving, I would invite you all to raise a glass to Bob Budiansky, who 30 years ago created much of the Transformers mythos as we know it. I would also invite you to celebrate the work of all the other creators since, who have taken on the task of writing and shaping the world of the Robots in Disguise and given us 30 years worth of toys, cartoons, comics and so much more.

It all began in that week leading up to Thanksgiving, 1983.

The true countdown to the 30th anniversary of Transformers begins here.

TFC Toys Ares Not Predaking Combined Mode Image
Posted by News Fetcher on November 25 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TFC Toys have revealed the combined mode of their Ares not Predaking via a posting on ACToys. Ares is the third unlicensed Predaking to come to market, along with War Lord and Feral Rex. This is the first time we have seen all five of the TFC Toys Ares team fully assembled, albeit with some of them still in very early prototype stages, so this design might change by the time all is said and done. With that said, check out this new image.

Generations Mini-Con Assault Team Name Revealed - For Japan
Posted by News Fetcher on November 25 '13 at 02:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The latest edition of Dengeki Hobby magazine has been released in Japan, and among the news contained within its pages are the names of the Generations Mini-Con Assault Team. Known only as "Mini-Con Assault Team" in the US on the packaging, and by fans as "the Mini-Con three pack" or "Mini-Con Guy", it might interest you to know that for Japan the combined mode and the three Mini-Cons that make up the combination all have individual names. The combined form is known as Centuritron, with the helicopter being named Windsheer, the jet Runway and the tank Heavy Tread.

Please note these names are only for the Japanese market - the US might well get him under a different name altogether.

In other news, the Transformers Go! redeco of Thundertron, Go Prime, is stated to be a toy-only character and will not appear in the direct-to-DVD animation for the series. And in something which may or may not be of interest, the new Transformers Cloud series is referred to in the magazine as Transformers Generations Cloud - suggesting this new exclusive series is a subset of the Generations line and not a complete stand alone.

Many thanks to Snakas for the heads up on this news.

TFW's Generations Goldfire (Goldbug) Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on November 24 '13 at 07:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next gallery update we are sharing with you an advance look of one of the upcoming Transformers Generations Deluxe Class releases. Goldfire is an IDW comics pack-in strongly inspired by Generation 1 Throttlebot Goldbug, the upgraded and matured version of Bumblebee. As well as featuring a sharp deco, Goldfire features a head sculpt which draws inspiration from the original Goldbug's head design.

Goldfire is a redeco of the Deluxe Bumblebee inspired by the IDW Comics Transformers Ongoing series. As mentioned, Goldfire features a new and, in this fan's humble opinion, superior deco. In place of the too-bright yellow plastic is a nice deep golden plastic, with black and navy blue used on the robot mode as a contrast. The head is a brand new sculpt for this toy, and helps to give this mold its own identity as well as taking a few strong cues from the original Goldbug. Overall the look of the toy is superb, although it is the same base mold as the Generations IDW Bumblebee underneath, which had a few flaws which are present here too, such as limited lateral elbow motion and a large number of car parts hanging off the robot mode. That being said, if you passed on the earlier IDW Deluxe Bumblebee, then this is certainly the better version of the mold to check out.

Take a look at our gallery and see what you think for yourself:

Transformers 4 GAC Trumpchi E-Jet on show at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Exhibition

The GAC Trumpchi E-Jet concept car was on show at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto Exhibition this weekend. The concept car is set to feature in Transformers 4 Age of Extinction, although it is currently unclear if it will be a Transformer or just a cool car for Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz to race around in. This concept car though does feature some Age of Extinction inspired decals including claw marks, bullet holes, and special Transformers E Jet logo - though we expect these are just for the sake of the exhibition rather than any indication of what will happen in the movie. Check out the images of the E-Jet, courtesy of Chinese auto news site Cheshi.

Ken Christiansen has shared some concept work he did for what would become the Bot Shots line on his Facebook. He explains that the vehicle designs were "just some fast vehicles" to fill out a Hasbro presentation. He did not work on robot modes for these.

What might be of interest is that Ken also did concept work for two more Bot Shot vehicles, Dino and Dark of the Moon Soundwave, neither of whom made the final cut.
