Jason Jensen (Tommy Kennedy) to Attend Botcon 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on May 28 '13 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Botcon have announced their next guest attendee. Making his convention debut is Jason Jensen, who played Tommy Kennedy in the little-known fifth season of Transformers Generation 1 alongside an animatronic Powermaster Optimus Prime. His role in the series was to act as a bridge to introduce the episodes alongside the Optimus Prime, as the "fifth season" was a series of reruns.

Check out the full guest announcement and biography on Botcon.com. Botcon 2013 kicks off in San Diego, CA in a little over five weeks time. If you're planning on attending and have not booked yet - what are you waiting for? Head over to the Botcon homepage to find out more and pre-register.

Transformers Go! Samurai Team Combined Mode Images
Posted by News Fetcher on May 28 '13 at 09:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up via Japanese imageboard 2Chan we can share with you a pair of scans showcasing the three different combined modes of the Autobot Samurai Team who are due for a release next month under the Transformers Go! brand. As demonstrated in these images the three Autobots Kenzan, Jinbu and Ganou can combine into three different gestalt forms, with one forming the arms and head, one forming the torso and the last forming the legs. The aesthetic of the combined forms, especially the main combined form with Kenzan as the arms and head, is very reminiscent of Takara's 90s "Brave" robot franchise, while the "three robots combine in three different formations for three different super robot modes" is a Super Robot anime staple that originated way back in the 1960s with the original Getter Robo anime.

Check out these images and see what you think of a Transformers series with a healthy side order of classic Japanese super robot anime thrown into the mix.

Masterpiece Prowl, Bluestreak and Smokescreen Update
Posted by News Fetcher on May 26 '13 at 02:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Snakas has posted a summary of the Transformers news from Figure King 184, which we had previously seen scans from earlier this week. Some great news regarding the future of the Masterpiece series as well as the future of the Encore reissues is contained within:

Masterpiece Prowl and Bluestreak are delayed due to retailer orders greatly exceeding what Takara-Tomy expected them to be, and them going back to manufacture more of each.

Masterpiece Smokescreen will be significantly different in design and will be announced soon.

Takara-Tomy are continuing to approach manufacturers who they do not have rights to use the vehicles of - you might get your VW Bumblebee or your Porsche Jazz yet folks!

There seems to be an announcement planned for the Tokyo Toy Show on 15-16 June. Masterpiece Smokescreen, or perhaps the rumored MP-20?

Encore Fortress Maximus sold beyond expectations, and it is hoped that reissues will continue on the back of this.

Masterpiece Tiger Track will be a Tokyo Toy Show exclusive and will include non-chromed versions of the Amazon exclusive piledrivers.

Confirmation is also included that Generations Japan Metroplex will have two guns and a different deco to the US, but no word on what that might be.

Many thanks to Snakas for posting the original summary and REMINATOR & MACRAPTRON for bringing it to our attention and translating!

TFW Revoltech Transformers Movie Bumblebee Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on May 25 '13 at 06:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With the news for Transformers 4 coming thick and fast, let's take a look at one of the cooler iterations of the movie series leading Autobot, Bumblebee. Starting out in the 2007 live action movie as a scout sent to locate Shia Labeouf's character Sam Witwicky, Bumblebee has been a mainstay of all three of the live action movies so far, and doubtless will also make an appearance in the upcoming Transformers 4.

Since its inception the Revoltech line by Kaiyado has sought to balance affordability with detail of design in its figures and incredible levels of poseabilty thanks to most figures coming with a display stand and the unique "revolver joint" system. Bumblebee, from the Sci-Fi Revoltech series, lives up to this ambition. He features a selection of alternate parts as standard for the Revoltech series, including an arm cannon, open and closed hands, and two interchangeable heads, one for his "normal" look and one with his battlemask deployed. He makes a great companion piece to the Movie Optimus Prime figures which Kaiyado has also released in their Sci-Fi Revoltech line - check out galleries of those two here and here.

Open the link below to check out our gallery of Revoltech Bumblebee, which was contributed to our galleries by boards member VaderPrime1.

Generations Japan Skywarp In-Hand Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Masabon has kindly shared with us some in-hand pictures of the newly released Takara-Tomy Generations Fall of Cybertron Skywarp. Presently a Japan exclusive release, Skywarp is a redeco of Generations Fall of Cybertron Starscream and along with the upcoming Hasbro Thundercracker completes this set of pre-Earth mode Seekers. He shys away from the traditional purple and black Skywarp colors for a grey and purple deco, previously featured on Alternity and Transformers Cybertron Skywarp. Check out these images and see if the more strongly purple deco is a deal-breaker for you or not.

Masterpiece Tigertrack MP-12T - In-Hand Photos

Hot on the trail of our last front page update on this figure, an eBay auction surfaced with in-hand photos of the upcoming Masterpiece MP-12T figure, Tigertrack! While this auction does not show any robot mode photos, it does allow us to get a closer look at the beautiful, yellow Lamborghini Countach alt mode. Tigertrack is a redeco of the Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor figure.

For those that may not know, this figure is a homage to not one, but two previous toys. The more obvious homage is to the mail-order Figure King exclusive Generation One Tigertrack that came out in early 2003. Also, this figure homages the Diaclone line, particularly the Diaclone New Yellow Countach LP500S figure (which is also obviously homaged by the 2003 G1 figure).

Several of our sponsors have pre-orders for this figure, and if the recent Masterpiece figures are any indication of availability, you may want to secure yours today!

2005 Boards member cobra zartan has shared with us some test shot images of the upcoming Generations Deluxe class Orion Pax. This toy represents a young Autobot law enforcer already on the path to becoming the greatest hero of Cybertron - Optimus Prime! He will be a part of Generations Deluxe Wave 5 which is due for a release sometime this summer. His wavemates will be Bumblebee, Megatron and Trailcutter - each of them based on their appearances in IDW's Transformers comics!
