Generation 1 Milton-Bradley European Transformers Mini-Comic Translated
Posted by News Fetcher on February 03 '13 at 08:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
One of the mysteries that the most-dedicated of Transformers fans such as Monzo have been trying to solve for some time was a mysterious mini-comic issued in Europe during the Generation 1 era of Transformers toys. This mini-comic, published by Milton-Bradley who handled some of the toy distribution in the early days, featured Jetfire as the leader of the Autobots!

After an appeal for information by the TFWiki, a fan in Spain ("Un tal Iván" - @Ivanspeedy on Twitter) sent a copy of the comic to the TFWiki Twitter account, and now thanks to Spark (for translating) and ItsWalky (for re-lettering) the comic is available for fans worldwide to enjoy. It's another piece of Transformers history preserved friends - a bizarre retelling of events from Marvel's Transformers #1 and #4 featuring not only Jetfire filling in for Optimus Prime but Soundwave taking the role of Shockwave and fighting the four Dinobots (Swoop is absent, possibly because his toy was not readily available in Europe, even though the comic features Roadbuster and Whirl alongside a Diaclone colors Blitzwing)

This comic, a store promo giveaway, also featured an early toy catalog which features some early toys such as the Deluxe Insecticons in their Beetras colors with Ransack in a different deco to any previously seen, and an appearance by the so-called "bearded Warpath" minibot.

All in all, it's a fun and obscure bit of Transformers history that I personally am very delighted can now be shared with the fandom at large. Read on and check it out, and a big thanks to all involved for making it available.

Masterpiece Soundwave Papercraft Display Screens
Posted by News Fetcher on February 03 '13 at 08:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
If like me you recently got Masterpiece Soundwave, you might be interested in this story. Masterpiece Soundwave features an attachment for his chest which lets you put slides in it to recreate the times he used his chest window as a monitor to display information for the Decepticons. On the released version of the toy, these screens are featured on the manual, meaning you have to cut up the back page of the instruction booklet to get this function.

Well, put down those scissors, because thanks to 2005 Boards Podcast Host Vangelus, we have something that will be useful to you. Vangelus has made a little edit to the papercraft Energon cubes that Takara-Tomy posted on their site to add the display screens to the printout. Click here to download it and check it out, and save yourself cutting up your instructions booklet!

Unique Toys War Hawk (Not-Divebomb) In-Hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on February 02 '13 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Meteor Operation on Facebook has shared in-hand pictures of the Unique Toys War Hawk, aka the second third-party not-Divebomb. Unique Toy's version as evidenced in these images takes the original Generation 1 toy design and upgrades it with modern standards of articulation, for all the good or ill that may come with hanging on to that classic style. From these images there is also a size comparison with Classics Rodimus, indicating that the War Hawk is around the same size as your average Deluxe class toy - making this one a choice for those who like all their robots around a similar height.

A selection of the best images are attached to this story - check out the link above for the full gallery.

Michael Bay Confirms Transformers 4 Is Not A Reboot
Posted by News Fetcher on February 02 '13 at 10:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Talking to Forbes, Director Michael Bay confirms that Transformers 4 is not a reboot.

Will that change the way you do anything on Transformers 4?
We’re going to start off smaller. There’s a brand new cast. To freshen the franchise we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom. The history of the first three movies is still there, we start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast.
Mark is really excited about it and it’s a great redesign. I said that 3 [which grossed $1.1 billion] was going to be my last one. Paramount was letting me do Pain & Gain and the Transformers ride was opening at Universal and it was bittersweet to think of passing it off. I wanted to set it up on a really sure footing and to bring someone else in on that, it would have been overwhelming.

So is 4 a reboot?
No, that’s wrong. We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go.


Mr. Bay also confirms what the winner of Doritos Superbowl Commercial Contest will to at the set of TF4:

What will the winner actually get to do on the Transformers 4 set?
Replace me as director. No, we’ll see who the person is and depending on what he is interested in being, a producer or a director, we’ll try to tailor the job. It’s all hard work with you’re working on a movie.

Transformers Prime Cyberverse Legion Prowl and Hun Grrr
Posted by News Fetcher on February 01 '13 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Japanese online retailer Red Mercury has posted some interesting pre-order pages. In addition to a page for the previously reported Beast Hunters Cyberverse Legion Soundwave, there are listings for a Legion Prowl and a Legion Hun Grrr. The listings specify they are imports i.e. not more Japanese releases, which suggests they are going to be released in the US.

Could these three toys be making up wave 2 of the Beast Hunters Cyberverse Legion, and if so, what will they look like? We might find out very soon at the US Toy Fair. One thing is for sure - with Twinstrike in wave 1 homaging Sinnertwin and now Hun Grrr, the Generation 1 Terrorcons have never known so much love!

Interview with John Barber and James Roberts
Posted by News Fetcher on February 01 '13 at 12:30 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Last year, IDW Publishing relaunched the Transformers comics as we know them. Writer Mike Costa ended his run on the Transformers Ongoing comic and the Transformers comics were relaunched with two new titles; More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise. Two books, that over the last year, have revolutionized Transformers comics. This newsie will gushingly recommend, talk about and force these books down the the throats of Transformers fans as well as comic book bans. MultiversityComics has posted an extensive in depth interview with both writers of these books, John Barber (RID) and James Roberts (MTMTE). In this interview the writers discuss everything from how Hasbro has been a fantastic supporter of the books (sometimes asking the writers to push the envelope even further than they have), to how they became involved with the Transformers books, to their writing techniques. They even discuss what we have in store coming up! There is so much more that we can't even fit in this space, so please take the time to read this. If you haven't read either of these titles yet, seriously, what are you waiting for? You're missing out in the worst possible way.

Additionally, the second cover for More Than Meets The Eye #13 is revealed in this interview. The book is due in stores next week, February 6th. The most exciting part of this cover? It features Holomatter (aka hologram) avatars of Skids, Rung, Swerve, and Rewind. Ultra Magnus is also featured on the cover, using Verity Carlo as his avatar!

You can read the entire article at the link above. Check out the new cover and discuss everything by clicking the title bar.

Third party group Maketoys has updated their website with a teaser for what appears to be an accessory set for the recently released Year of the Snake Omega Supreme. Dubbed the Armageddon Upgrade Kit, the set includes several attachments, including Omega's iconic "wings". The set then unfolds into a familiar base and launch platform.

This is the first in Maketoy's Mega City bot series, but we have no information whether this line will strictly include accessories, or complete city-sized characters.

Additionally, Maketoy's Mobine Paladin/Chaos and the Mobine Missile Launcher armors have been delayed due to design revisions and improvements.

Staff Note: This is a 3rd party item not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara Tomy.
