TFCC Transformers Figure Subscription Service 2.0 Chromedome, Stylor, and Rewind Images
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '14 at 11:00 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Thanks to the Official Transformers Collectors' Club's Twitter, we have a few looks at the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 2.0 Chromedome in his vehicle and robot modes, as well as his partner, Stylor!

Chromedome is a redeco/remold of the Transformers Prime Wheeljack mold, with a new Nick Roche-designed, More than Meets the Eye-styled head. Stylor is a redeco of Arms Micron S.2.

The Club is assuming that Stylor (and the rest of the Micron partners) will come pre-assembled, but things could change.

Lorenzo Di Bonaventura Says Transformers 4 Age Of Extinction Is Not A Reboot
Posted by News Fetcher on January 21 '14 at 12:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Ever since we heard that there will be a 4th installment for the Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movie Franchise, the number 1 debate was whether or not it's a reboot. Today, Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura stated that Transformers: Age Of Extinction is a continuation of the original trilogy and cannot be considered as a reboot.

During an interview with The Hollywood News, Mr. di Bonaventura stated:

"It’s definitely not a reboot. It’s an interesting question about what you should call it. On a certain level it’s a continuation of the previous stories, in the fact that it acknowledges what has transpired before it. It acknowledges in the last movie, the destruction of Chicago, it’s actually something that carries through the sort of emotional repercussions of that, not unlike 9/11 has emotional repercussions in the real world. In a fantasy world there are repercussions to what occurred.

That plays into the movie, moving forwards with a totally different human cast, who doesn’t know anything about the other humans, it’s not a reboot, but a continuation, yet you’re continuing with a new cast and group of characters. It was a big decision to do that.

We miss our friends that we did the first three with, and they were great, and they probably could’ve done more. But the advantage of doing it this way is that it feels almost like a first movie. It’s a very different dynamic than I’ve seen in a movie, I’m very curious. I guess Star Wars did that a little bit, but not so close together, the way we’re doing it.’"

Random Photo Shoot - MPM-2 Bumblebee
Posted by News Fetcher on January 20 '14 at 03:30 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
With all the talk about simplification and downsizing going on in the fandom, we thought it'd be nice to show what the other direction can bring to the table.

MPM-2 Bumblebee was the Takara "Masterpiece" repaint of Hunt for the Decepticons Battle Ops Bumblebee. MPM-2 was a larger than Masterpiece version of Movie Bumblebee from Revenge of the Fallen with a dead on accurate Camaro mold. Lights and sounds galore. The robot sculpt was also well-done, though it lacked in some arm and leg movement. Paint on the Takara version covered the entire car rather than just yellow plastic, and the interior robot mode was a darker grey with lots of hand painted highlights.

Simplification, smaller molds, less paint - these have a place in the brand as it moves forward for sure. I've had trouble figuring these things out for a while and I'm grown. We just hope that figures like MPM-2, other Masterpieces, well done Leader Class figures (ROTF Leader size, please) stick around in some form as well. And not just $180 dollar imports from Japan.

Take a look at the full gallery for MPM-2 Bumblebee by clicking the link below, we've also attached some key shots after the break!

In-Hand Images of Generations Voyager Whirl
Posted by News Fetcher on January 20 '14 at 08:45 AM
By Mechafire from TFW2005:
Looks like HK-TF member stevenhyk is the first one to experience some super-unvincibility, as thanks to him, we have our first in-hand images of Generations Voyager Whirl! Whirl is very G1-inspired, while taking a few minor cues from his IDW More than Meets the Eye counterpart, specifically in the head and legs. He features an opening cockpit, and much like Generations Metroplex, he also comes with a decal sheet.

Check out the images after the jump, then let us know what you think in the discussion thread!

Next in our series of advance looks at yet-to-reach-US-retail Transformers toys we have a look at Generations Autobot Scoop with his Targetmaster partners, Caliburst and Holepunch! Scoop is an update of the original character from the 1988 Generation 1 series and this is his first new toy in almost 25 years!

Generations Scoop is a fairly nifty toy. He's an update in the style of Universe 2.0 Prowl or Sunstreaker - a version realised with modern technology, better proportions and aesthetics that still ultimately remains extremely faithful to the Generation 1 original. He's got a good range of poseability in robot mode, though the ball jointed hips can sometimes feel a little restricted if they catch on the waist. In vehicle mode he is a nifty little front end loader, and the robot head sits inside the vehicle cab, which is a nice touch reminiscent of Robots in Disguise X-Brawn's head being on his car seat in vehicle mode.

Scoop is accompanied by his two Targetmasters, Holepunch and Caliburst (formerly Tracer). Like the originals, these two do not have a lot of poseability though the moveable arms are a plus. They can turn into a pair of guns for Scoop to wield in either mode, or they can be combined into a larger weapon. Just like the original Generation 1 toy, Holepunch and Caliburst can combine in two different configurations, and there are a good selection of ways for Scoop to wield the combined weapon, not least because once combined the rifle gets two pegs for him to grip on to.

Overall, Scoop is a brilliant and extremely fun toy with lots of possibilities for attaching his guns to his different modes. He might seem like an odd choice to use for an upgrade, but he is well realized and is a good toy in a great assortment. Be sure to scoop him up to add to your collection when he hits retail.
