Hunt for the Decepticons Megatron Rising Voyager Megatron Images
Posted by News Fetcher on June 18 '13 at 11:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have another look at an unreleased Transformers toy for you tonight. This time out, by way of an ebay auction, we can share with you some pictures of the unreleased redeco of Revenge of the Fallen Voyager Megatron, which was planned for the Hunt for the Decepticons line. Had this been released it would have been included in a store-exclusive multipack with several of the Legends Class Constructicons, the set being named "Megatron Rising" and the character choices intended to represent the Decepticons who dove into the depths of the ocean to resurrect the Decepticon leader. Alas, this was not to be - check out these images, to date some of the only in-hand images of this piece - to see what could have been.

Transformers Go! Animation Preview from Tokyo Toy Show
Posted by News Fetcher on June 18 '13 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A panel at the Tokyo Toy how showed an extensive preview of the Transformers Go! animation. The preview clip is heavy on the three Samurai Team Autobots Kenzan, Jinbu and Ganoh, showing off their transformations and also their combinations. From what can be seen "detailed" and "dynamic" are two words that can be used to sum up what is on show so far. If you look hard at the early part of the video, you can also spot the red version of Grimwing, Budora, engaged in battle with the Samurai team.

The vieo can be viewed on Nico Nico Doga - check it out!

Takara-Tomy Transformers 30th Anniversary Site Live
Posted by News Fetcher on June 18 '13 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have updated their Transformers website with a subsite for the 30th anniversary of Transformers and the 30th anniversary Masterpiece fan vote. The Masterpiece vote is cleverly done - a form needs to be downloaded and posted in to vote, and the reason for this is the vote is "paid" for by using robot points from the Takara-Tomy Transformers packaging. In other words, only those who buy Transformers from Takara-Tomy are eligable to vote in this fans choice poll. The site also includes a bit of information - and a sweet group shot - of all the characters who can be voted for.

Platinum Series Grimlock In-Hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on June 17 '13 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Lena81822 gives us a look at another as yet unreleased Transformers toy. This time out it is a different version of Fall of Cybertron Grimlock - at first glance you'd be forgiven for thinking this is the TG-19 Japanese Generations Grimlock, but the lack of paint on the midriff suggests that this is a third version of Grimlock. He also is sporting some nice and very shiny paint on his gold bits - particularly evident on the T-Rex mode neck - which suggests that this one might be the Platinum Series version of Grimlock, who was mentioned at Toy Fair 2013 back in February and is slated to come in a giftset with Fall of Cybertron Bruticus.

Unreleased Generation 1 Megatron Reissue Images!
Posted by News Fetcher on June 17 '13 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Did you know that during the Transformers Generation 1 Commemorative Series of the mid 2000s, Hasbro tried to get the original Generation 1 Megatron back on to Toys R Us shelves? It's true! However, such a reissue carried with it a huge cost - namely a shockingly bright, un-Megatron deco that none the less somehow manages to be strangely appealing.

By way of The Spacebridge on Facebook, we can share a look at this aborted Megatron reissue. What you see here is the only way Hasbro could have even attempted to get Megatron back on store shelves at Toys R Us, with an orange and metallic blue deco (It is worth saying that in spite of this, the toy still got rejected for a release because it looked too much like a gun).

Classics Jetfire Possible Asia Exclusive Release
Posted by News Fetcher on June 17 '13 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Ebay seller Lena81822, who in the past has proven reliable with posting images of unreleased Transformers items, has posted an auction with images of a possible new release of Classics Jetfire. The auction, which can be viewed here, shows a Jetfire with the same deco as the Henkei release - the paint is laid out in the same fashion as the Henkei. However there are a few differences to the Henkei version - the booster rockets are silver painted, rather than chromed, and Jetfire sports a very rich, metallic red paint. Additionally Jetfire has solid white plastic missiles rather than the clear ones previous releases of the mold used, but this may be due to this being a prototype. Interestingly, the wings also feature Decepticon symbols on them, with an Autobot symbol on the chest - another prototype issue, or a play on how Jetfire had conflicting loyalties in the original cartoon?

We suspect this one might be an upcoming Asia exclusive release, since this follows on well from the trend set by the United Ultra Magnus that was released previously. When we find out more, we will be sure to share that news with you too.

Unreleased Generation 2 Protectobots Images
Posted by News Fetcher on June 17 '13 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Spacebridge has shared some incredibly awesome stuff on his Facebook. At the end of Transformers Generation 2, there was a whole bunch of toys that were never released, famously among those were the Generation 2 redecos of the Protectobots. It's not every day we get a look at them, so check out The Spacebridge's Facebook gallery which shows some nice, clear pictures of all four Protectobots and their bios.

Also showcased is a rare look at the bio for the Laser Cycle Jazz toy. A motorcycle version of Autobot Jazz, this toy like the Protectobots was never released outside of a very limited run to a test market, making it one of the rarest Transformers collectibles. Be sure to check it out!

Hasbro Press Release - International Licensing Expo 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on June 17 '13 at 12:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
We just received a Press Release from Hasbro regarding their presence at the International Licensing Expo 2013 (June 18th to June 20th). Of course, they will most surely be giving a sneak peek at what they have in store for us for the upcoming year.

On the 2010 Licensing Expo, Hasbro revealed the Teaser Poster for Transformers: Dark of the Moon which was to be released in the following year of 2011. So, will we see the Teaser Poster for Transformers 4 this time? If you are heading over there to the expo, make sure to take some pics and share with us.

And now for the Press Release. Here is the Transformers related info:

TRANSFORMERS

Hasbro's iconic TRANSFORMERS brand has become one of the most successful brand franchises of the 21st century and features the heroic AUTOBOTS and the villainous DECEPTICONS engaged in an epic battle on multiple storytelling platforms, including film, television, digital gaming, publishing and theme parks. Hasbro and its licensees provide the avid TRANSFORMERS fan base with high value, age-appropriate merchandise including digital gaming, toys, apparel, sporting goods and more. DeNA and Hasbro recently announced the launch of TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS, an action card battle game based on the TRANSFORMERS franchise, which is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and on Google Play for Android devices. TRANSFORMERS: The Ride - 3D, currently open in Singapore and Hollywood, will officially open on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at Universal Studios Orlando. The thrill ride is a mind-blowing, action-packed experience that pushes the limits of technology to place guests in the middle of a larger-than-life battle between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS.

Botcon 2013 Machine Wars Sandstorm Souvenir Figure

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A pair of Taobao auctions have posted up in-hand images of what is claimed to be a Botcon 2013 at show souvenir toy. The two auctions, here and here, show a redeco of the movie toy Dark of the Moon Skyhammer in a green tiger-stripe jungle camo deco, with blue rotors and gold accents. The deco is unmistakeably Machine Wars Sandstorms - which suggests that it will be one of the at-show souvenirs.

Check out the images and see what you think of this potential convention exclusive release.

TFW Masterpiece Rodimus (Hasbro Version) Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 16 '13 at 07:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With a lot of talk about Masterpieces - and Rodimus in the running for the Fan's choice award again this year - now seemed like a good time to share this one with you! Masterpiece Rodimus is the Hasbro release of Takara-Tomy's Masterpiece Rodimus Prime. He was a Toys R Us exclusive, trading up the trailer of the Japanese release for Offshoot, a Targetmaster partner figure who complements this release very well. All in all, the Hasbro release represented everything that was good about the Takara-Tomy Version 2 release of this toy, and made it available to US fans without the need of importing the more expensive Japanese version.

Transformers 4 to film in Fairfield Township

By way of Lenawee County's Daily Telegram, we have learned that a scene or scenes from Transformers 4 will film in Fairfield Township, MI. A section of M-52 between Weston and Mulberry roads has apparently been picked as a possible filming location, a wide two lane stretch of road (Paramount was, evidently, initially searching for a four lane stretch of road, but settled on the wide stretch when no appropriate four lane roads were found).

Given Transformers 4's tagline as "a chase from hell" we'd assume that means a decent length of a car chase sequence may be shot here. Filming is due to take place later this month so as to not disturb the harvest, so we will doubtless find out more in due course.

Masterpiece MP-20 Clarification
Posted by News Fetcher on June 16 '13 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have some additional information about the next installment in the Transformers Masterpiece series for you now. 2005 Boards member MACRAPTRON was also present at the Tokyo Toy Show panel yesterday, and can report on what Shogo Hasui said during the presentation:

Hasui: "About the new Masterpiece, I believe many of you want to hear about MP20. We can't show it yet, but MP20 will finally be that character, that car model which the license was very difficult to obtain".

MC: "Why? (can't show now?)"

Hasui: "You'll have to wait/please wait some more"

This does not quite match what we heard yesterday, but this does fit with what we heard previously about the Takara-Tomy team relentlessly pursuing licenses for the car models of the other Generation 1 characters. From Hasui's wording, it sounds like MP-20 might be a character with a licensed car mode which has been very hard to obtain for the line - which narrows the field of candidates quite considerably.

We will share more news and information as it reaches us.
