Beast Hunters Megatron Prototype New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '13 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An eBay auction has been posted with more images of the Beast Hunters Megatron. While we've still not got any pictures of his vehicle mode beyond the thumbnail we posted earlier this weekend, these new images give a clearer view of the remolding and additional parts on the robot mode. There is also a clear look at the weapon, a large fish-themed rifle that transforms into an utterly devastating looking sword. We have mirrored the pictures, check them out attached to this story.

Auto Assembly 2013 Exclusive Revealed - Robot Manuel X
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '13 at 06:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Europe's largest Transformers convention, Auto Assembly, has unveiled their first ever exclusive. Exclusively available and up for preorder now is Robot Manuel X! Robot Manuel X is a homage to Robot Man X, a Generation 2 recolor of Autobot Topspin who was available in the early 1990s in South America. He is a redeco of the MechIdeas Demolition Crue Apex.

Robot Manuel X will retail for £47.25. He is an extremely limited piece and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. To allow as many attendees as possible to add Manuel to their collection, he will be limited to a maximum of one per person, and as with all unofficial third party releases sold at Auto Assembly, he is an adult collectible only available to ages 18 and over. He will also be available to those buying the Auto Assembly 2013 non-attendee pack, which will go live shortly. Preorders for the exclusive toy are available - open link to view.

Robot Manuel X is one of a two-part set and his “spark-mate” will be made available at another Transformers Convention this Summer, which will be announced at a later date.

Auto Assembly 2013 will be taking place over the weekend of 9 - 11 August 2013 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham in the UK. Guests attending include Dan Gilvezan (Generation 1 Bumblebee), Neil Kaplan (Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime) and Steve Blum (Transformers Prime Starscream), as well as comic guests Simon Furman, James Roberts, Andrew Griffith and many more. Find out more, preregister and buy your exclusive Robot Manuel X at the Auto Assembly 2013 homepage!

TFW Beast Hunters Smokescreen Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on April 13 '13 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Introduced late in season 2 of Transformers Prime, the hot shot cavalier Autobot Smokescreen is the sixth and newest member of Team Prime. While very much the rookie, he is also a member of the Autobot Elite Guard. He came late enough in the series that, like Shockwave, he did not receive a toy in the initial Transformers Prime line, instead getting his very own deluxe class toy in the second wave of Beast Hunters deluxes, and it is that toy we are sharing a gallery of with you tonight.

The Beast Hunters Smokescreen toy is a love or hate affair. While his design is pretty clever and features a few different tricks to your normal car robot, he ends up with big bits of his car hood on his arms. He also has a deco which is inaccurate to the show. There's not a lack of paint applications, but some details are painted which are not on his show model, while others are missing. But I would invite you to look past these features to a toy which is very poseable and fun to play about with. Smokescreen is a decent little Deluxe toy, and the additional clip on armor is a nice bonus.

All in all, definitely one that is worth checking out - so open the link below to view our gallery brought to you by photo staff member thedrknss48 to see what you think of this toy.

Generations Metroplex Teaser Image with Fortress Maximus
Posted by News Fetcher on April 13 '13 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's a brief fun update for your enjoyment. Hisashi Yuki of the Takara-Tomy Transformers design team has taken a break from his hard work on designing new Transformers toys to tweet an image of the two biggest Transformers toys of them all - the recently reissued Fortress Maximus, and looming behind him, the arm of the new largest Transformer of them all, Generations Titan Class Metroplex. As you can gather from this image, it looks as though the top of Fortress Maximus' head is going to be roughly equal to Metroplex's shoulder - he's one big, bad robot. And he's got articulated fingers!

Transformers 4 will be a "chase from hell"
Posted by News Fetcher on April 13 '13 at 01:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Comingsoon.net was at a press junket for Michael Bay's Pain & Gain (which also stars Transformers 4 leading man Mark Wahlberg). At the event, Mr Bay was asked if he could use a word or phrase to sum up Transformers 4, and with a grin, Michael Bay said "chase from hell".

Here we have it from the mouth of the man himself - Transformers 4's story will somehow be a chase from hell. We can speculate a lot about what this means - but if we take it in the context of previous comments, that Transformers 4 would be getting back to a smaller scale story than the epic action seen in Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon, then this is a perfect fit. This fan is guessing that the plot of Transformers 4 will revert to the tried and tested formula of "human (& their Autobot guardian) finds something that the villains need to further their goals and go on the run to keep it from enemy hands". Of course, time will tell.

Hit the discuss link below to join in the speculation on the 2005 Boards.

Beast Hunters Cyberverse Optimus Prime Redeco Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '13 at 04:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A second thumbnail image from Diamond reveals an all-new, previously unknown toy release from the Beast Hunters Cyberverse line. What we have for you here is our first look at a new redeco of the Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime. This version sports a green deco along with new accessories - the missile launcher has been traded up for a large shield, though Optimus still carries the Star Saber with him. The shield also looks as though it unfolds somehow - compare the shape on Optimus' arm in robot mode to the one on top of the truck in vehicle mode.

Is this cool green redeco going to find his way into your collection? Share your thoughts on our 2005 Boards!

Beast Hunters Megatron Color Image
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '13 at 04:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Diamond Distribution has recently put up some new thumbnail images, showing some upcoming Transformers toys. One of those new thumbnails gives us our first look at the recently leaked Beast Hunters Voyager "Sharkticon" Megatron in color. While small, the image gives an idea of the overall deco - primarily black, with purple highlights on the legs and fins, and teal on the hands and forearms. The new weapon as speculated can transform between arm cannon and massive hand-held sword modes. The remolding is also very cool on the front end of the vehicle, giving Megatron's alien jet mode an entirely more feral, bestial look. Check out the image at left.

Mobage have teased their next event for their Transformers Legends Mobile Game on Facebook. It seems that the next event following on from Day of the Dinobots will be a Seeker theme event named "Robots in the Skies". The teaser art shows off Sunstorm, Skywarp and Thundercracker quite prominently, suggesting that they will be the three "boss" characters players will face off against over the course of the event - although Acid Storm is also lurking in the background, so anything is possible.

E-Hobby Magnificus Comic Cover Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '13 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
E-Hobby has updated their pre-order page for their Classics Magnificus exclusive with some artwork for the bonus comic that will come with the figure. The comic cover takes a Wild West style, with a wanted poster for Magnificus being torn by an unseen hand. The artstyle seems to be in the vein of the Marvel Transformers comics, at least as much as we can judge from one single uncolored lineart.

Check it out here. The Transformers Collector's Club will be offering Magnificus for order to fans outside of Japan, priced $90 with preorders expected to go live next week.

Bot Shots Warpath Launcher and 2013 Three Packs Wave 2 In-Hand

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Darkhawk79 has shared with us some more images of upcoming Bot Shots releases. This time out we have a look at the very cool Warpath Launcher set along with the next wave of three packs. The Warpath Launcher marks the first time we've seen Warpath as a Bot Shot, and he is an awesome little bot - his face is packed with character and attitude, complete with one eye larger than the other as if he is raising an eyebrow to say "did you just make me WHAM BAM! crash into that wall to make me transform?!"

The new assortment of three packs includes a few other cool new additions to the series - the first includes a redeco of the new Spin Shot Ironhide as Sergeant Kup along with Transformers Cybertron inspired Predacon Scourge and a Super Bot Blitzwing (redeco of the first Decepticon Brawl Bot Shot). The second set features a Transformers Cybertron homage Optimus Prime, a Super Bot Jazz, and all-new Predacon Cindersaur!

Read on to check out all these in-hand images.
