San Diego Comic Con Metroplex?
Posted by News Fetcher on June 26 '13 at 09:15 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
A video on Youtube shows a convention goer at the Tokyo Toy Fair discussing Metroplex with what looks to be a representative of Takara Tomy. While overall it's just a basic video where we get to see the Japanese Metroplex deco in action, one thing stood out. While describing the Japanese version, highlighting the paint applications and two guns - the Takara Tomy representative stated that it was "same as the comic con version".

Could this be the reason Hasbro has been holding out revealing a Transformers only SDCC exclusive? Will we get confirmation this weekend at Botcon? Stay tuned!

1965 and 1969 GTO To Be Featured In Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on June 26 '13 at 07:00 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Youtube user Mendenhall512 posted a video showing his 1965 and 1969 GTOs being loaded onto a Paramount Pictures flatbed truck. In the description he states that Paramount is renting them for Transformers 4, and that they will be used as Mark Wahlberg's personal cars throughout the movie. If true, they go along with the vintage 67 Camaro Stealth Bumblebee, so it seems we have a mix of new and old rides shaping up for 2014. There is also the possibility these are just being used in set pieces as several on the forums suggested, so only time will tell.

TFW Generations Sandstorm Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 24 '13 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We are now proudly sharing with you a gallery of the recently released Transformers Generations "Thrilling 30" Autobot triple-changer, Sandstorm! Sandstorm is a heavy remold of the previous wave's Springer, and we do mean "heavy remold" in every sense of the expression, thanks to a lot of remolded parts and a complete new backpack section with a new tailfin and the toy's signature VTOL fans. It is, quite possibly, the single most ambitions remold seen on a Transformers toy yet.

Sandstorm's three modes are all very well realized. VTOL Aircraft mode is a complete different mode from Springer's helicopter; the twin fans give the vehicle a unique look (plus, it's not the kind of alternate mode we often see on a Transformer, which is a plus). Dune Buggy mode makes use of those fans as huge rear wheels and the new tailfin gives the cab a bit of an armored look, which makes for an interesting car mode. Robot mode is the one that most closely resembles Springer - if you ignore the twin fans giving Sandstorm a rather impressive backpack. While nice looking, the fans do cause a few issues with stability - though to the designer's credit, Sandstorm can still hold most poses fairly easily. The tailfin officially sticks up, behind the head, in homage to how the Generation 1 toy was designed - but in a stroke of genius design, you can easily fold this part down into a more discrete backpack if you don't care for the choice.

Amazon Japan has updated their pages for Transformers Go Hunter Smokescreen and Bakudora with official images. From these images we can see Hunter Smokescreen will have a much more show accurate look right down to the red stripes on his head, but it seems like he will not have a silver face. Bakudora the Ripclaw redeco looks particularly cool with a red and metallic blue deco
The images also give us a good closeup of the new head.

FansToys Quakewave Astro Magnum / Shackwave Version

Courtesy of the Facebook page of online store edbomberToys, we have a look at a potential redeco of the FansToys Quakewave aka the unlicensed Masterpiece style Generation 1 Shockwave. The image shows a Quakewave in a washed out grey deco with a red optic, which is reminiscent of the original Astro Magnum toy that Shockwave was derived from, as well as the RadioShack "Shackwave" of the 1980s.

Given that this is one of the few established alternate decos of Shockwave, which was homaged by Transformers Animated, it was perhaps a foregone conclusion that this might eventually come to pass. None the less, this is confirmation that yes, this deco appears to be happening to this unlicensed toy.
