Transformers Go Decepticon Combiner
Posted by News Fetcher on March 11 '13 at 09:00 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Building upon the intriguing Transformers Go revelations...we have new info for you thanks to Young Padawan! Previously we had heard that the 3 samurai characters were combiners. Then Young Padawan posted this:

The police car is in blue, fire truck is in red and the fighter jet is in yellow. From what i heard from the rep, the difference in price for G-01 is because of lights and sound effects, not due to any particular big disparity in size between the 3 bots. All 3 bots have their own combiner heads and can combine in 3 different combiner forms, looks pretty good.

followed by....

Wait til you guys see the the other 3 decepticon combiner bots.

Meanwhile, Gaokaiser pulled out an image from a TakaraTomy event last year, which while blurry, may actually show the character designs of the new Transformers Go characters, as Young Padawan pointed out that the yellow/black robot may be the jet samurai.

The plot thickens!

BTS Toys Motion Crytotype Base Encore Edition Review
Posted by News Fetcher on March 11 '13 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We recently had a chance to look at the reissue version of the BTS Toys trailer set. This new version of the BTS Toys trailer is matched for the United Black Optimus Prime, but if you do not have that particular toy it makes for a fine trailer for any other Nemesis Prime that you might have - if you happen to have the appropriate trailer connector parts for it.

Read on to check out our thoughts on this piece - or if you, like me, feel that a picture is worth a thousand words, then check out our gallery of this newest release from BTS by opening the link below:

Fansproject Munitioner and Explorer Re-release Final Colossus Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 10 '13 at 10:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Courtesy of Ages Three and Up's Facebook page, we have our first look at final photos of Fansproject's re-release of their Munition and Explorer kits. This often delayed and highly anticipate re-release not only gives fans a chance to purchase these fantastic toys if they missed out the first time, but also gives us more Generation 1 paint jobs. Additionally, the combiner accessory pieces share different colors as well. No photos of the individual figures just yet, but this gives us our look at the combined form, Colossus.

Take a look at the pics and join the discussion after the jump.

TFW Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Ripclaw Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 10 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It's time for a new Transformers toy gallery for you. In keeping with the impending return of Transformers Prime to our televisions with the premiere of Beast Hunters later this month, we have a look at another one of the Predacons for you. She's a lean, draconic Autobot hunting machine and her name is Ripclaw!

Beast Hunters Ripclaw is one of those "love or hate" toys, I feel. Her design is excellent, with nice detail on the wings and a brilliant shape to both modes that gives her a unique silhouette. Her weapon is a "syphon claw", in the style of a Spark Extractor from Beast Machines, and it is kind of cool, as the claws lock open and only snap shut when a button in the middle of the claw is pressed. The bad, though, is that Ripclaw is a bit lacking in the articulation department. She's got nice movement in the legs, but no bicep swivels, and her head is mostly limited to looking up and down, thanks to her collar in robot mode.

Ripclaw's other main feature is her tail, which features a rubberized core. It can be locked into a C-shape or left unlocked to give it a little free movement. It is possible with this feature to put Ripclaw in some cool poses mimicking Ser-Ket from the Rage of the Dinobots miniseries, who shares Ripclaw's design. However, weight can become an issue with the tail in robot mode, making Ripclaw's legs occasionally give way.

All in all though, Ripclaw is a fun toy with a very nice design. She's not for everyone, but what she does, she does well.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards content staffer SydneyY has shared with us a little more information about the Encore Fortress Maximus. It's all good news with this information translated from the recent edition of Figure-Oh:

Encore Fortress Maximus will come packed in a foam tray, like Generation 1 Fortress Maximus

The Master Sword can be taken apart after being assembled, unlike the original - there will be stickers to cover the screws.

Fortress Maximus' eyes will be painted on this release, instead of the stickers used on the Generation 1 version.

We know that last bit of information will be pleasing to many of our readers!

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Good friend of TFW2005, Ricky Brigante of Inside The Magic dropped by to let us in on the news that Transformers: The Ride Supply Vault at Universal Orlando is now officially open.

At the Supply Vault, Transformers fans can purchase all sorts of neat stuff including a small replica of the Allspark from Movie 1.

Also, you might meet Optimus Prime and Bumblebee walk-around characters; who entertain the public.

"Yesterday the large metal doors opened to the ride’s store, dubbed the “Supply Vault,” revealing hundreds of Transformers items now for sale in the park, including quite a few Universal Studios exclusives. And with the opening of the store, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee also emerged, meeting Universal Orlando day guests - and Optimus was even talking."

"A few of the more unique items are a voice changer, All Spark projector, and plenty of T-shirts, along with an assortment of Transformers toys, including Evac, a main character developed for the ride."




You can visit Inside The Magic for more information and lots of images.

Transformers Go G04 Gaidora is a Lazerback Redeco
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have some more information to pass along now regarding the new Transformers Go! line - specifically a little more information on the G04 Gaidora. As speculated, the new information that has come to light seems to confirm that Gaidora will be a redeco of Beast Hunters Lazerback. The listing, from Singapore site "The Falcon's Hanger", also suggests there will be a metallic deco.

The site also corroborates earlier reports that G01 through G03 (the three "Samurai" characters) will be combiners, capable of merging in three different forms. The information also suggests that G01 Kenzan Samurai will feature some level of light and sound features and will be priced more expensive than the others (about SG $30 more), but once again, no images are provided.

Generations Scamper Image
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Back at Toy Fair 2013 we reported that the Generations Titan Class Metroplex would be accompanied by a smaller robot, based on his partner Scamper from the original Generation 1 Metroplex. Pictures of Scamper have been a well-kept secret, but as 2005 Boards member GaussGunner has highlighted, they were out there. A video of Toy Fair 2013 by Atamaiidotcom shows the box of Metroplex, including a brief "blink and you'll miss it" of Scamper on the side. Scamper in this new version remains the high-tech futuristic black car, except now he has a bit more color to him than he did back in Generation 1. He's marketed as a "Legends" class figure, so he is potentially either a Cyberverse Legion or Commander in size.

Stay tuned to TFW for more news and eventually better images!

Transformers Prime Voyager Skyquake Released in the UK
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Let it never be said that the UK always misses out on the Transformers toylines - while it is true we get shortchanged most of the time on anything past about wave 3, once in a while there is a turn up for the books, and today is one of those days, because Transformers Prime Voyager Skyquake has been sighted in UK Toys R Us stores up and down the land. Skyquake was the last of the toyline to have not been released in the UK in some shape or form - with this the entire Transformers Prime toyline has made it to these shores. Skyquake is in US packaging complete with "The Hub" adverts, indicating this is import stock rather than Hasbro UK domestic releases. It follows the very limited release of Skyquake through Toys R Us in the US.

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
According to a post at The Hollywood Reporter, Director Michael Bay has requested actor Josh Duhamel's presence at Transformers 4 in a Cameo Appearance.

Mr. Duhamel said...

"[Michael] said he wants to put me in it someplace. I don’t know if he was just saying that because he had me on the phone and he felt obligated or what, but, you know what? I got to do three of those. It changed my career, it changed my life getting to be a part of something that big, so I’m grateful for even doing the first three of them."

Not to be left out, we also have a couple of new images of the so far Japan-only Generations Skywarp to share with you. This staight-up redeco of Fall of Cybertron Starscream is a bit more on the purple end of the spectrum than most Skywarps - he has an interesting deco which is none the less still the epitome of "evil Decepticon". Check out the images attached to this story, which are coming at you via Toy Hobby Market.

Amazon Japan has also posted some high-res images of the Transformers GT Megatron and his Race Queen partner Noa. GT Megatron is looking sharp in silver, and you can check out his new head in these images as well for extra benefit. The one thing we don't get to see much of is Megatron's cannon - it's only present in the one image, with little insight into just how it is going to work. Regardless, check out the images attached to this story.
