TFW2005's coverage of Summer Wonder Festival in Japan continues
, this time thanks to images from 2chan.
First off, we have images of upcoming poseable figures of Generation One Arcee and Elita-1 from Fewture Models (similiar to the Optimus Prime and Alpha Trion articulated figures we originally reported on during the last Wonder Festival in February.
) Secondly, Sentinel (company behind toylines such as Riobot, as well as the Optimus Prime transforming pen) has revealed that they will be producing a retool of their previously revealed Gigantic Action non-transforming Zarak toy
into Black Zarak from Transformers: Masterforce! This non-transforming collector's piece is perfect for those who are very wary of the original Black Zarak's infamous Gold Plastic Syndrome. Unless you want a Transforming Black Zarak, that is.
Stay tuned to TFW2005 as we bring you more news from Summer Wonder Festival as it happens!Read Replies (0)

IDW is bringing Hasbro and Rovio's Angry Birds Transformers to comics, Comicbook.com
reports! In this light-hearted series which we're told is being played for laughs, the Allspark landed on Piggy Island, leading to the Transformers' personalities merging with the Angry Bird and Bad Piggy inhabitants!
Billed as a four issue series, IDW's Transformers editor John Barber will be handling the writing. Livio Ramondelli will be providing art for a framing sequence in issue #1, with Marcelo Ferriera handling the main art for the series. IDW mainstays Sarah Stone, Guido Guidi, Casey Coller, and Livio Ramondelli will be providing covers for the series.
Comicbook.com has the cover artwork for issue #1 of the series, which reveals a couple of new characters - a Bag Piggy version of Age of Extinction Galvatron, and Arcee who is the pink Angry Bird! Are they comic only, or a tease of what we might see in the game and its associated toyline?Read Replies (0)
