Transformers Go! Takara-Tomy Website Update
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '13 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have updated their Transformers Go! website with clear images of the toys of the three combined forms of the Samurai team. The Samurai, due out at the end of this month, can combine in three different formations for three different combiner modes based on which of the three forms the head and arms, torso and legs. The Ninja team, whose three members have a staggered release in July, August and September, are also shown with toy pictures of one of their three combined modes shown - the other two combined modes are blacked out silhouettes, to be unveiled later.

These images also finally confirm - by way of a close up of Gekisomaru's neck - that the Ninja team will be Autobots, not Decepticons as was once reported.

Lastly the page banner has also updated showing Galaxy Force / Transformers Cybertron style CG models for the robots alongside traditional cel animated style humans. The humans are shown holding discs which resemble the Data Disk modes of the Fall of Cybertron Autobot and Decepticon minions for Soundwave and Blaster.

Auto Assembly 2013 Customisation Class "Bad Cop" Prime Barricade Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '13 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Auto Assembly have today revealed their convention exclusive customisation kit. This year's exclusive customisation class set is "Bad Cop" and is being brought to fans in association with Keiths Fantasy Club and Sensible Collectibles. "Bad Cop" converts a First Edition Transformers Prime Vehicon into a Transformers Prime Barricade, and includes a new head, lightbar and pre-cut sticker sheet.

The kit will be available in two different forms. The Gold Pack contains the base figure (a FE TF Prime Vehicon figure, unreleased in the UK), the exclusive head and light bar, and a pre-cut sticker set. These are strictly limited to 50 sets and are £30 each. The Silver Pack contains the exclusive head, and uncut sticker set. These have a production run of 100 sets and are £15 each.

The Gold Packs are available to convention attendees only, limited to one per person, but the Silver Packs will be available as part of the Non-Attendee Pack which will be unveiled in the next 24 hours! Silver packs will be limited to a maximum of two per person. Both the Gold and Silver Packs will be available to pre-order through the Auto Assembly website from tomorrow, along with the existing convention exclusive T-shirts and the exclusive Mech Ideas Robot Manuel X.

No particular skill set is needed in order to complete your figure, as they are designed for novice customisers, however a kitbash panel will be held to demonstrate how to convert the your First Edition Vehicon using this set!

Auto Assembly 2013 is Europe's largest EVER Transformers convention and is taking place over the weekend of 9th - 11th August 2013 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. To book your tickets or find out more including details of all the dealers attending, all of the guests and a full schedule for the weekend, visit the Auto Assembly homepage!

Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters Episode #8 Thirst Extended 30 Second Promo
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '13 at 01:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Previously we saw the 15 second promo for next week’s episode of Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters. Now it’s time to take a look at the 30 second promo for "Thirst" where "Knock Out and Starscream experiment with synthetic lead and threaten to take over the Decepticon ship and unleash an old enemy." Of course, as usual Megatron is not very pleased and initiates High Alert on this Decepticon-centric episode.

Special thanks to Generalbri of 2005 Boards for grabbing the Promo Video.

Transformers Generations Ratbat and Transformers Go! Promo Flyer
Posted by News Fetcher on June 02 '13 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hisashi Yuki has tweeted an image of the upcoming Transformers Generations Ratbat and a flyer promoting Transformers Go's second combiner. Ratbat, thought to be based on his "senator" role in the pre-Earth parts of the IDW continuity, features a rich purple deco, although the lighting makes it hard to get a proper judge on him. He is stood on top of a flyer which will be distributed later this month to promote the new Transformers Go! line and its second combiner, the Ninja team, who have animal forms as opposed to the vehicle forms sported by the Samurai team.

Transformers 4 to film using Palm-Sized Novo Camera
Posted by News Fetcher on June 02 '13 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hollywood Reporter has some news on the filming of Transformers 4 - though not the kind you'd think! According to the article on Hollywood Reporter, parts of Transformers 4 will be filmed using Radiant Image's palm-sized Novo camera, which weighs in at just 3.2 ounces. The article linked above has some additional technical information on the camera and its capabilities - it's a far cry from the traditional depiction of large, stand mounted Hollywood cameras, although it can get closer to the action of a scene by virtue of its smaller size and lighter build.

TFW Masterpiece Sideswipe (Lambor) Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 02 '13 at 06:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Long before the licensed Camaros and Corvettes of the Transformers live action movie series, Hasbro was featuring real-life car designs in the Transformers line, with one of the very first being the Lamborghini, Sideswipe. Last year Takara-Tomy once again got the license to make a Lamborghini Sideswipe and thus Masterpiece Sideswipe, or Lambor as he is known in Japan, was born! The first of the "smaller scale" Masterpieces, Masterpiece Sideswipe does not fail to impress with the details or poseability, which both remain top notch as we have come to expect of the Masterpiece series.

TFC Toys Ares Project Nemean not-Razorclaw
Posted by News Fetcher on June 01 '13 at 08:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With Mastermind Creations and Unique Toys both making unlicensed Predakings, does the world need a third Predaking? Well - a third one is coming, ready or not. TFC Toys throws their hat into the ring with their next combiner project after the completion of Uranos. Ares, named for the ancient Greek god of war, is their own version of Predaking, and today they have posted images of the first member of the set, a not-Razorclaw named Nemean. We have uncolored grey prototype images of Nemean in all three of his modes, robot, lion and gestalt body. You can check them out attached to this post.

(Fun fact - Nemean's name comes from the Nemean lion, a fearsome beast in Greek mythology which Hercules had to face as one of his twelve labors)

TFW Transformers Prime Arcee Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 01 '13 at 04:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
From her introduction in 1986, Arcee has been an Autobot warrior first and a female Autobot second, and no where is this more clear than Transformers Prime Arcee, an extremely competent warrior capable of combining acrobatic skill with precision strikes - as illustrated by the relative ease with which she dispatches Vehicons and Insecticons (see yesterday's episode, Plus One, for an example of Arcee's skill in action).

The Transformers Prime Arcee mainline toy - the second toy of Prime Arcee to be released in Deluxe scale, following the First Edition toy - is an excellent realisation of the character. Like the First Edition she sports a great resemblance to the on screen character and top-notch articulation, more necessary than ever when you are dealing with a character like Arcee who does lots of acrobatic moves. The toys likeness - especially in the face and with the 5mm capable hands - in some ways even eclipse the First Edition Arcee.

Overall this is a great Arcee toy to have in your collection, whether you missed out on the First Edition or not. This Arcee also has a remold planned for the upcoming Wave 4 of Beast Hunters, complete with longbow and more silver details, for those who missed out on this one while it was in stores.

Livio Ramondelli on Transformers Monstrosity
Posted by News Fetcher on June 01 '13 at 12:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Servoslag has posted an interesting interview with IDW artist Livio Ramondelli, regarding his work on Transformers Monstrosity and how it all fits into the wider mythology of Transformers that IDW is creating. There is also some talk of a possible third series to follow up this one, which it is suggested might be a full on war series if it happens.

Other key points revealed in the interview are how Monstrosity and Spotlight Shockwave reconcile with each other, how the Quintesson Pentius plays into the previous tease at the end of Spotlight Wheelie, and a tease of what to expect in the remainder of this digital-first series.

Transformers 4 News from Michigan Casting Call
Posted by News Fetcher on May 31 '13 at 11:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Fox Detroit has posted a video about the recent Transformers 4 casting call in Michigan. Following the previous Transformers live action movies filming in Michigan Michael Bay is stepping up his filming in the area - this video gives you an idea of just how much of Michigan is being used for Transformers 4, including a reference to how part of the story will be set in Hong Kong, but will be filming in Michigan.

Of interest to those tracking character reveals - Maryellen Aviano, the Transformers 4 casting co-ordinator, when discussing the vehicles that will be used in Transformers 4 mentions Corvettes, suggesting more than one Corvette character will be featured in the new movie. We already know that a 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray is to be featured, but this suggests that a second Corvette will also be appearing - could Sideswipe be returning?
