From Mockup to Production - The Creation of a Generation 1 Transformers Toy
Posted by News Fetcher on June 19 '13 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Spacebridge has shared some interesting material on his Facebook page. At the far end of this link, you will see a rare example of the progress of a Generation 1 Transformer - Sharkticon Gnaw - from the earliest non-transforming mockup, through animation designs, later mockups, and transforming prototypes before the production version was finalized. As well as showing us these rare early stages, the progression presents an interesting case study in how an original concept, "robot shark man, big teeth", would eventually become the toy that many of us added to our collections.

Check it out, it is a fantastic example of how everything comes together.

Michael Bay Says Rumors Of Transformers 4 Title Are False
Posted by News Fetcher on June 19 '13 at 10:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Director Michael Bay stopped by his official website amidst his busy schedule to say a few words about a certain rumor that is said to be going around the internet. That rumor is the Title of Transformers 4.

It is clear Mr. Bay is referring to the title "Transformers: Rise Of Galvatron"; which was floating around ever since TF4 was first announced.

"There are rumors flying around from various media sites about the title of the next Transformers.

I wanted you to hear from me directly that we have not yet chosen a title and anything being reported is absolutely not true.

When we have a title to announce, I promise you will hear it from me first.

-Michael"

TFW Generations Skywarp - Japan Exclusive - Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 18 '13 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up, a gallery of the recently released in Japan Transformers Generations Skywarp! Generations Skywarp is presently a Japan exclusive redeco of the Fall of Cybertron Starscream toy. He represents a Cybertron mode version of Skywarp and along with the upcoming Generations 2.0 Thundercracker in Hasbro's Wave 6 he rounds out the Seeker trio. Compared to his normal black with purple accents depiction, this Skywarp is a departure, instead going for a purple and dark grey look. At first glance you might say to yourself "it's a nice deco, but it's not Skywarp", but give it time. It grows on you and before long I found myself accepting this like any of my other Skywarps. The paint is gorgeous, as with a lot of Takara-Tomy releases, with a nice glossy finish which makes the toy feel a bit more substantial than the flat gray on my Hasbro Starscream.

All in all, a pretty solid little toy, and a welcome addition to my Fall of Cybertron shelf. Open the link below to check out our gallery:

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!

Transformers More Than Meets The Eye #18
'DON'T LET THEM TAKE SKIDS!' The crew of the Lost Light left CYBERTRON before they could hear those words-part of a message from the future warning of terror and catastrophe and a threat to the entire Cybertronian race. Can the AUTOBOTS do anything to stop the beginning of the end?

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.
