Botcon 2013 Machine Wars Termination Comic Panel
Posted by News Fetcher on May 20 '13 at 10:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Botcon has tweeted a panel from the 2013 Timelines comic, Machine Wars Termination. In this panel the Cybertronian general Obsidian briefs a group of select Autobots on their new roles as City Commanders. The Autobots include Hardhead, Backstreet and Dogfight, Guzzle, Red Alert and Jazz. The art draws all of these in their Generation 1 looks, except Jazz who seems to be taking a few cues from his Reveal the Shield version. We're told that these are just cameos, and not any indication of toys that are coming as at-show souvenir figures.

Li Bingbing Joins Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on May 20 '13 at 01:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
We’ve mentioned her before on a news post regarding Transformers 4. Back then, she was auditioning for a role on Transformers 4 at the Chinese Talent Search, but now Miss Li Bingbing has confirmed she is starring on the upcoming Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movie.

"A report on m1905.com -- a Chinese film-related portal operated by the state-owned China Movie Channel, one of the film's three co-producers -- quoted a statement from Paramount Pictures, Sid Ganis’ Jiaflix Enterprises and China Movie Channel as saying that Resident Evil: Retribution star Li Bingbing will board the production. She will soon be joined by other well-known actors as well as newcomers recruited from a talent-scouting competition."

Rumor / Speculation - Masterpiece Mirage in the works?
Posted by News Fetcher on May 19 '13 at 09:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Frequent visitors to our 2005 Boards Transformers Toy Discussion forum will perhaps have stumbled upon the Masterpiece Speculation Thread - where rumors and speculation on upcoming Masterpiece Transformers releases are shared and notes are compared. 2005 Boards member iGrimlock has come up with a very interesting theory that we thought we might share with you - it might be a coincidence, or it might be the first hint that a Masterpiece Mirage is coming our way in the future.

Takara-Tomy have been uploading Generation 1 episodes on to their Youtube channel. They are not always in order, not always uploaded on a strict schedule or anything. Generally, the episodes are going up roughly in sequence and roughly monthly, but once in a while, a random episode gets thrown in. They started on September 30 2012, not with the first episode but with A Plague of Insecticons. This was the episode where Sideswipe used his piledrivers that the Masterpiece toy came with - and it was uploaded the month before the release of Masterpiese Sideswipe.

After this episodes were uploaded in order until December 2, 2012. The episodes uploaded at that time were Auto-Bop, an episode where Soundwave got a lot of focus fighting Blaster, and Auto Berserk, the Red Alert focus episode. December was the month when Masterpiece Soundwave was originally planned for a release and the month of Masterpiece Red Alert's release.

The next batch of episodes to be uploaded came earlier than might be expected from the previous trend and included Roll For It, which is an episode where both Prowl and Bluestreak were prominently featured. This time, the upload preceded the announcement of the Masterpieces by about a month.

Posted by News Fetcher on May 18 '13 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Those of you watching Transformers Prime Beast Hunters last night might have been pleasantly surprised to see that the opening has been updated with some new footage! The new opening follows the same three-stage format of the original but with tweaks and changes throughout:

The theme music now features a deeper rhythm behind the main theme.

Bumblebee now appears in his new black "Stealth Bumblebee" deco

Optimus Prime now appears in his new beefed up "Optimus Prime 2.0" form

The Predacon makes a couple of appearances, breathing fire on the road at the beginning and then again on the battlefield at the end of the intro

The Autobot's team pose at the beginning is now a battle-ready one, with weapons drawn.

Shockwave now appears alongside Megatron and Starscream in the final battlefield sequence.

The intro now ends with Optimus Prime delivering a "dragon punch" to the Predacon.

In spite of all this, several ongoing characters are absent from the intro, including Knock Out, Smokescreen and Soundwave.

Check out the new intro below:

The guys of Charticon announce another update on their upcoming, inaugural convention with yet another guest - Ken Christiansen, an illustrator who has been working on Transformers in a variety of capacities over the last few years. The Charticon organizers had this to share with us:

We are very happy to announce another guest! Ken Christiansen will be joining us for the show as well!

Ken Christiansen has been working as an illustrator and concept designer for over fifteen years. Starting as a video game concept artist, at Nintendo of America (Ridge Racer 64, Pokemon Puzzle League), then moving to Los Angeles to work in games for the Walt Disney Company (Kingdom Hearts, Finding Nemo). In 2004, Ken started his own company, Bad Flip Productions, working for video game clients like Disney, Warner Bros., Universal, and Activision. After working with Activision on Transformers the Game, and the Revenge of the Fallen game, he began working freelance in media development for Hasbro Inc. (Transformers), doing concept art for their film, tv, book, games, and toy initiatives. That expanded into media development beyond the Transformers brand, including Star Wars, Spider-Man, and more.

Ken’s current work includes the cover runs on the Transformers Prime series (IDW), Star Wars Fighter Pods, and Ultimate Spider-Man Spider Pods. Along with other random bits and pieces, hanging off pegs in the toy aisles, book shelves, and video game departments…

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have been getting reports that the next assortment of Beast hunters Cyberverse Commanders have been released in the US. Reports of sightings have come to us of Cyberverse Commander Shockwaves in both Washington State and also in California. Shockwave is not the only new toy in the assortment, as the remolded Commander Starscream is also in this assortment - so both should now be at retail if you are searching for these new releases.

The sightings were made at the South Center Target in Kent, Washington and also at the Fox Hills mall Target in Culver City, California - so if you're on the West Coast, check your Targets - they seem to be getting these in first. Happy hunting everyone!
