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
Posted by News Fetcher on April 07 '13 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
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!

Posted by News Fetcher on April 05 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The fourth and to date final series of Transformers Prime Arms Micron Gashapons has been released in Japan. Arms Micron Gashapon Volume 4 redecos all twelve existing toys from the first three series in translucent blue "Matrix" versions for the Autobots and translucent purple "Terrorcon" versions for the Decepticons.

Transformers Go! G-05, 06 and 07 listings
Posted by News Fetcher on April 05 '13 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
New listings have been released by Takara-Tomy for their Transformers Go! line. The new listings give us the names of the next three releases which are given as:

G05 Gekiso-maru (ninja team, Japan exclusive release)
G06 Hunter Smokescreen (no hunter armor)
G07 Bakudora (listing mentions this is a Predacon and sports a new head)

No images are available at present. Hunter Smokescreen and Bakudora are priced at 2,500 yen apiece, suggesting that both of these will be Deluxe class molds - on that basis Bakudora is probably a reuse of either Ripclaw or Skystalker. Gekiso-Maru, the ninja team, is priced at 5,500 yen. Given the pricepoint and the fact it is referred to as a team, odds are this is a multipack of some description - perhaps the Decepticon combiner that was originally mooted a few weeks back?

Mastermind Creation Azalea Prototype Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 04 '13 at 10:30 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
On Monday, Mastermind Creations showed off their Feral Rex combiner in color and added an April Fools Joke to the picture with a Predacon colored Arcee named Sixer. As we reported (and confirmed on MMC's Facebook page) Sixer isn't happening, but the mold of that Arcee figure is. The figure's name is Azalea and is inspired by Alex Milne's design of the character from her Spotlight issue. 2005 Board member griffith76 has shared the resin prototype of this figure in our 3rd party forum. According to Mastermind's Facebook, more fembots are planned and will apparently all be named after various flowers.

Check out the images of the prototype by clicking the title bar.
