Additional Images of Masterpiece Prowl and Bluestreak
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '13 at 10:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
A pair of images have surfaced showcasing the recently revealed Masterpiece 17 Prowl and Masterpiece 18 Bluestreak. The first image, tweeted by Takara designer Shogo Hasui, shows the two figures side by side in robot mode. This image makes it even easier to compare the differences between the two figures. The second image, courtesy of Cybergundam blog, actually shows several smaller images. While a small and grainy, these images show comparisons to MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP-12 Sideswipe.

New Transformers SKUs from Toys R Us Canada
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '13 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toys R Us Canada have recently updated their computer system and added some new SKUs into the mix. These listings reveal a few items of interest, namely the Canadian retail price for Masterpiece Soundwave and Masterpiece Acid Storm. Masterpiece Soundwave is priced at $119.99 CAD, a steal considering he includes the full complement of five cassettes. Acid Storm is priced at $69.99 CAD.

The listings also confirm that Platinum Series Prime Ultra Magnus will be released at Canadian retail through Toys R Us, he will run to $69.99 CAD as well. The Titan Class Metroplex is in the system too, his retail price is given as $99.99 CAD.

Lastly there are two more listings, which are given as "Prime". The first is "Prime Ultimate Dragon", potentially the Ultimate Class version of Beast Hunters Predaking. This confirms he is getting released in Canada through Toys R Us, he's been mooted as a Target exclusive in the US. His price is $59.99 CAD. The listings are capped off with an entry for a $29.99 CAD 16 inch figure from the Transformers Prime line. The price is consistent with the asking price for a Weaponizer or Optimus Maximus, but neither one of them matches the height listed. It could be the new "Ultimate" Beast Hunter Optimus Prime, though the asking price seems less than expected, particularly given the cost of the Predaking.

The full listings of the SKUs follows below:

Masterpiece Soundwave SKU043130 - $119.99
Masterpiece Acid Storm SKU043128 - $69.99
Generations Titan Metroplex SKU043106 - $99.99
Prime Plat. Ed Ultra Magnus SKU038196 - $69.99
Prime Ultimate Dragon SKU043112 - $59.99
Prime 16'' Figure SKU038183 - $29.99

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
There seems to be a new 30 second Trailer for Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters airing on the Hub. Sure enough, we found this video on You Tube. Unfortunately, it's not in a good quality but we would like to thank the uploader (Kaila Hartman) for recording it.

The new trailer features some new scenes from the upcoming 3rd and Final Season.



We will post a better quality version once we obtain it.

Beast Hunters promo spot - The 2013 Bumblebee
Posted by News Fetcher on March 06 '13 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Entertainment Weekly's Family Room has posted a new promo image and video for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. This video confirms what was being speculated since the first full trailer of the new season - Bumblebee will indeed be sporting a new look, based on the primarily black "Stealth Bumblebee" type deco that Bumblebee has sported in the toyline from time to time.

It might be time to pick up one of those Shadow Strike Bumblebees if you want a complete cast of show accurate Autobots! Check out the tongue-in-cheek car advert parody below video below:

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Planet Iacon has posted a selection of in-hand images of Beast Hunters Voyager Shockwave. Shockwave once again looks to be an extremely good release for the line - he looks suitably big and imposing, scaling up well against other Voyagers such as Fall of Cybertron Grimlock.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Toy Commercial
Posted by News Fetcher on March 06 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A toy commercial for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters has begun airing. This rather cool little commercial features Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in their Beast Hunter forms squaring off against Predaking and Lazerback - in a very Toy Story setting, leaping across desks and attacking each other with skateboards in a child's bedroom. Check out the TV spot below. One interesting point is that apparently Optimus Prime now leads the heroic Beast Hunters, rather than just the Autobots - probably just marketing, but it sounds weird to hear it when we are usually told Optimus is the leader of the Autobots.

Rumor - Transformers Asia Exclusive Reissues
Posted by News Fetcher on March 06 '13 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Take this report with a grain of salt, but Malaysian retailer Famitoy are reporting that there will be a new run of Asia exclusive reissue Transformers. The rumor, which was posted by Famitoy on their Facebook page, reads as follows:

Transformers Asia Exclusive (Reissue):
GalaxyForce Galaxy Convoy
GalaxyForce Sonic Bomber
G1 Star Saber
G1 Diatlas
Optimus Primal
Special AirJordan X Transformers Black Convoy


For now it is only a rumor - potentially drawn from retailer solicits by way of Hasbro's Asia branch. Time will tell if this pans out or not - but we are hoping for the best with two Generation 1 toys who have been long in demand for a re-release included on this list.

Transformers: Beast Hunters Promo - Predacon
Posted by News Fetcher on March 06 '13 at 12:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
A new Promo for Transformers: Prime Season 3; Beast Hunters is now available on Hub World website.

However, only viewers from United States of America can enjoy the clip. But not to worry, there isn’t much in it; Predaking enters, Megatron talks followed by Bulkhead and Miko looking up at the sky along with Wheeljack.

Strange thing about the title of the clip is that it has referred Predacons singularly.

You can watch the clip at Hub till someone uploads it to You Tube.

Voyager Beast Hunters Beast Megatron & Other New Listings At Walmart.com
Posted by News Fetcher on March 05 '13 at 11:45 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Deathx360 has swung by to bring word of a possible Beast Hunters Voyager Megatron. A listing for this figure has turned up at Walmart.com as
"Transformers Prime Beast Megatron". There are a few more new listings that have popped up as well, including one for Deluxe Prowl and a Cyberverse Autobot Driller.

For Generations, in addition to Blitzwing & Springer, a listing for Sandstorm has also turned up.

Note that with regards to Beast Hunters Voyager Class Figures, as of Toy Fair 2013, we had only seen 5 out of the 6 figures(according to the press release for Beast Hunters at Toy Fair) Hasbro has planned for this year. Not too long after Toy Fair, a Generations Beast Wars Megatron testshot(FOC Grimlock body with a new head based on Transmetal 1 Megatron) appeared. Could the voyager Beast Megatron listed at Walmart and the new Megatron using the FOC Grimlock body, be one and the same? Note: we have have not seen any CGI renders of a reformatted Megatron in the Beast Hunters trailers so far. Hmmm yesssSSSssSSSsSssssss.....stay tuned!

This set - which features Generation 1 Soundwave, Slugfest, Ratbat, Blaster, Ramhorn and Eject decoed as their Shattered Glass counterparts along with the new character the Solarbot - is an E-Hobby and Transformers Collectors Club shared exclusive. The E-Hobby sets have been arriving since late January / early February, now the Transformers Collector's Club's stock is also arriving.

Those who've not had a shipping notice, you might be surprised yet - several 2005 Boards members have mentioned this set has been arriving in hand without them even getting a shipping notification. The main thing being of course that the set is arriving in the hands of us fans.

Botcon 2013 Baseball Cap Reveals Machine Wars Thundercracker
Posted by News Fetcher on March 05 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Botcon Twitter account brings us some more Botcon 2013 news - they have posted an image of the Botcon 2013 baseball cap. The Botcon 2013 Baseball cap features the Megaplex version of the Decepticon symbol with Fun Publication's take on Machine Wars Thundercracker in front of it. Like in the original line, their illustration of Machine Wars Thundercracker is a redeco of Skywarp - in other words, it is based upon the Revenge of the Fallen Dirge mold.

An illustration does not a toy make, however you might be interested in an exchange of tweets between one Twitter user and Botcon:

- From Twitter user Emerald Beacon - so you're basically confirming MW Thundercracker with this hat, right?

-Response from Botcon - Basically...


"Basically" is such an open term of course - there is no telling just what that actually means. But the signs are pointing to "yes" to one of this year's Botcon 2013 souvenir figures being a Machine Wars Thundercracker.
