TFW Transformers Prime Nightmare Unicron Gallery and Review
Posted by News Fetcher on April 11 '13 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our very own SydneyY has shared with us a review and gallery of the Transformers Prime Arms Micron series Nightmare Unicron. The last release in the Arms Micron series, Nightmare Unicron is a black redeco of the Prime Gaia Unicron. An exclusive release, he depicts the nightmarish subconcious of Unicron who seeks a physical body. As a toy, his dark deco means he fits extremely well with both the Arms Micron Nemesis Prime and Megatron Darkness.

Charticon Exclusive Aftershock Figure - MASSIVE News Roundup!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 11 '13 at 12:45 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Hot on the tails of our initial news post of this exclusive figure for the upcoming Charticon convention, the guys organizing the inaugural convention have been posting a TON of updates on this highly anticipated figure! We've decided to devote a single "round-up" for them, so that you can view them all in one update!

The major news is that it is, in fact, including TWO Targetmaster type figures! These are redecos of the Mastershooter Collectible figures, courtesy of site sponsor Captured Prey. Attached to this article is a mock-up of those figures.

This figure is super-limited, and the "non-attendee" packages have sold out. However, don't fret! You can still join the party by attending the convention, as there are still attendee sets still available! Jump on over to the ordering page if you plan to join the party! Also, there is some important information here if you plan to attend and order this figure.

Also, if you have some skills but can't attend, the head sculpt is offered separately! This is also a more affordable version for those who passed on the non-attendee set and are unable to attend the convention. The head is available for $15. Jump directly on over to the Charticon site for ordering information! If you end up going this route, be sure to post your own work in Radicons via our Creative Forums!

Read on for tons more information after the jump!

Michael Bay & Mark Wahlberg Talking Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on April 10 '13 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
MTV.com has updated with a brief interview with Transformers 4 star Mark Wahlberg, in the runup to Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. There are some great quotes from the article - including Mark Wahlberg apparently pushing for Michael Bay to stick with the Transformers franchise to make more movies past Transformers 4 (you'll recall that Michael Bay has stated previously during the making of Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon that he has variously wanted to "take a break from the franchise for a bit" or "next one is my last one" much as he has been saying here, so really, who knows if Mark Wahlberg is giving Mr Bay the push he needs to stay on for Transformers 5 and beyond?)

Other great quotes include the story of Mark Wahlberg being cast for Transformers 4 (Mark evidently jumped at the chance without even knowing what his role would be) and in a heartwarming twist the reaction of Mark Wahlberg's children to the news ('Yeah, shut up daddy. You're lying. You don't make movies that we want to see!'; direct quote!)

Mastermind Creations Fortis, Bovis and Leo Dux Test Shot Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 10 '13 at 12:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Mastermind Creations have released a couple of new images of their Feralcons. This new image shows for the first time the new character "Fortis", their take on the rhino Predadon Headstrong. It might be the angle of the picture but he seems to be slightly shorter and stockier than Leo Dux / Razorclaw and Bovis / Tantrum.

The new images also show a size comparison with the Classics Voyager Optimus Prime mold (in the form of SDCC 2008 Nemesis Prime) showing that the three pictured are all approximately the size of the old Ultra Class.

Prime Beast Hunters Megatron First Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 08 '13 at 09:02 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of Collecticon, we have our first look at Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Megatron. Beast Hunters Megatron as perhaps we had anticipated is a remolded version of the previous Voyager toy, with a new weapon and extensive remolding for his "Hunter" armor. These images are of a mold-test prototype, which helpfully means we get a good look at what has been changed from the base figure. New / remolded parts include:

New remolded head, more menacing face.

New shoulders, spikier and more detailed.

New forearms, with fins at the wrists. The fins regrettably mean that the new gun needs an overlong handle to attach to the arm.

New lower legs / wings.

The clear purple section, which mounted the fusion cannon in vehicle mode on the first version of the mold, is enlarged and fills out the back more and we assume by extension also hides the arms in vehicle mode more.

New chest, which bears a slight passing resemblance to the beast mode head of Generation 1 Seacon Skalor.

The overall toy seems to have a fish theme going on with all the fins. The new weapon also keeps the fish theme going, and from what we can gather from the photos, the new gun appears to have a few sliding / folding parts as though it might actually transform into a sword.

If previous reports are correct, Megatron here will be the lone new toy in Beast Hunters Voyager Wave 4. Check out the pictures of him for an advance look at the latest incarnation of the leader of the Decepticons.

TFW Masterpiece MP-9B Black Rodimus Convoy (E-Hobby Exclusive) Gallery

For our next gallery, we're taking a step back from the new releases and having a look back at one of the rather cool redecos released in the recent years. Takara has a rather grand tradition of offering black repaints of Transformers characters, and one very popular choice for this treatment is Hot Rod / Rodimus. Here for you tonight is something rather cool - a gallery by our own SydneyY showcasing the Masterpiece Black Rodimus Convoy, the crown jewel of Black Hot Rod Transformers!

Like most of the Black Rodimus characters, Black Rodimus Convoy is a doppleganger of Rodimus. In this version, he is the personification of all Generation 1 Rodimus' self doubt, insecurity and reluctance to lead that formed a second, dormant personality within the mind of Rodimus - until a chance encounter brought Rodimus to a Decepticon facility with a cloning machine, which allowed the evil personality to assume physical form and set out to rule all he encountered - Autobot and Decepticon alike.

Open the link below to check out the gallery of this awesome E-Hobby Masterpiece Transformer!

First SDCC 2013 Exclusive Toys News from JoeCon 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '13 at 04:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As the GI Joe fans among us already know, this weekend is JoeCon! Hasbro as always were in attendance and, via our GI Joe sister site Hisstank, we can share a little news on the San Diego Comic Con exclusives for 2013. Please note, this applies to the GI Joe exclusives rather than Transformers ones:

SDCC can't be shown because they contracted with a national outlet for initial unveiling.

SDCC hint - Will be a bigger set, fill a void for many collectors, will have a surprising amount of figures they think the fans will be happy with. Didn't say it would be Joe/TF, but hinted it will probably carry forward.


What we can take from this is as follows:

The SDCC exclusives will be shown through a national outlet at some point, probably USA Today or MTV Geek in the next two months.

While not confirmed, we may get another GI Joe / Transformers crossover set like the pictured Starscream Skystriker.

Brian Savage is also on record as having approached Hasbro Toy Shop with a view to offering the GI Joe SDCC 2013 exclusives through the GI Joe club store - we can infer from this the possibility that the Transformers SDCC 2013 exclusives might also be a part of the same deal and potentially offered through the Transformers Club Store.

Please bear in mind though, nothing is as yet set in stone. When more news of the Transformers side of things is revealed, you can find it posted right here on TFW2005! And for GI Joe news, be sure to check out the Hisstank!
