Possible Sighting Of Dino / Mirage For Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction?
Posted by News Fetcher on October 14 '13 at 11:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Latest images from Hong Kong seems to suggest Dino / Mirage will return for Transformers: Age Of Extinction. The robot made its debut on Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and quickly went on to become one of the favorite bots from the Live Action Movie Franchise. Though officially called as Dino (in honor of the late song of Ferrari Corporation Founder) he was known as Mirage on various merchandise including the Official Game, Comic Book and SpeedStars Toy Car from Hasbro.

The vehicle mode of Dino / Mirage on DOTM was a Ferrari 458 Italia; known as one of the best Ferraris ever made by Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear (and Hammond… and May). However, the spy photos from Hong Kong are of a 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia Speciale. If it is indeed Dino / Mirage, then he too may have received an upgrade like his cool buddy Sideswipe of Transformers 3.

Stick with TFW2005 as we bring you more info.

TFW's Timelines Depth Charge Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on October 13 '13 at 07:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This year's membership renewal freebie from the Transformers Collectors Club was Depth Charge. Depth Charge was a Maximal from Beast Wars, who journeyed to Earth in pursuit of his nemesis, Protoform X, aka Rampage. In the same style as Fun Publications' past Beast Wars "Dawn of Futures Past" Botcon exclusives, Depth Charge here is realized with a vehicular mode, using the Hunt for the Decepticons Terradive mold.

Timelines Depth Charge is a great figure and really works well on the mold. This is a straight-up redeco - there is no new head tooling or anything involved, just new colors - but the deco works so well that there is no questioning that this is a version of Depth Charge. The jet mode also perfectly recalls the manta ray alternate mode of the original Beast Wars Depth Charge, and even the trident accessory, with its connotations of the sea, works well with this toy.

Timelines Depth Charge is an amazing deco on an already great toy and is worthy of a place in any collection, either as a stand alone piece, or as a companion piece to the Botcon 2006 Dawn of Futures Past set or next year's Transformers Collectors Club exclusive, the aforementioned arch-rival Rampage!

Check out our gallery and see why this fan is raving about this toy!

IDW Transformers / G.I. Joe Crossover Press Release
Posted by News Fetcher on October 12 '13 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
IDW have issued a press release about the new Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover miniseries, which we can now confirm is going to be its own, standalone continuity. The press release mentions that the series will be coming next summer - artist and co-writer Tom Scioli says of the series: "We're asking big questions. Is war an inevitable condition of life? What is free will? What is the future of man and machine as the line between them becomes increasingly blurred? The G.I. JOE team is trained to deal with dangerous situations and this is the ultimate test of their training. The TRANSFORMERS characters push the boundaries of what shapes life can take in this infinite universe of ours. Perhaps it will be a machine that teaches us what it is to be human."

In a tweet, Tom Scioli adds to this by saying "This Transformers vs. Joe script is the closest I've come to attempting the scope of what Kirby was aiming at with New Gods."

We've been told previously this would be a series on a cosmic scope, and co-writer John Barber says that "it harkens back to classic comic traditions—and to the origins of the TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE characters—but feels constantly, irrepressibly new!"

The series is coming next summer, as a part of the anniversary celebration of both Transformers and G.I. Joe - be sure to pick it up when it hits comic stores! Read on for the original text of the press release which came to us via Comic Book Resources.

Transformers and GI Joe New Crossover Series from IDW
Posted by News Fetcher on October 11 '13 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Comics Alliance has lifted the veil on a new Transformers and GI Joe crossover! The promotional artwork, done in a retro style, is said to be telling a story that will be "cosmic in scale". Tom Scioli will be doing the art for the series, and will be co-writing alongside IDW Transformers editor John Barber.

This will be the first time that the Transformers and GI Joe have appeared in the same story together since the Devil's Due GI Joe / Transformers Dark Horizon miniseries pitted the Autobots against Unicron and Cobra-La in 2007. The two franchises have a long history of crossovers, beginning back in the original Marvel comics series, with highlights including the Generation 2 prelude published in the latter issues of the original Marvel GI Joe series and the first GI Joe / Transformers miniseries from Devil's Due, which saw the Autobots and Decepticons taking on alternate modes inspired by GI Joe vehicles.

There is no information yet on when this is set to be released, or how many issues it will run for, but we are assuming on the pattern of past crossovers that a miniseries of between four and six issues seems likely.

An update on our previous report on Harmony Gold's attempted suit against Hasbro, over the San Diego Comic Con 2013 exclusive GI Joe VS Transformers Jetfire set. According to papers posted on PACER and reposted by Generals Joes, the case "is dismissed in its entirity with prejudice".

Effectively what this means is Harmony Gold and Hasbro have settled the case out of court. What that settlement entailed is not set out, chances are the general fandom public will never know.

Unique Toys are showing off their next project after their Predaking at the New York Comic Con. They are releasing an unofficial, unlicensed version of the Decepticon commander Galvatron, which they have named Messiah. A resin hardcopy prototype is on show, standing on a CGI concept sheet showing the colors and a glimpse of the alternate form.

Check out a picture of this project, courtesy of NurseMidnight via Twitter.

Update - Unique Toys also has prototypes of an unofficial Blaster and Sharkticon (the latter courtesy of Radio Free Cybertron) on show. Both closely follow the original Generation 1 toys but are more detailed. New images provided by boards member Hailstarscream also shows that the not-Galvatron is named Mania King, rather than Messiah.
