Generations Sandstorm In Package
Posted by News Fetcher on June 13 '13 at 09:45 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Site sponsor Robotkingdom.com has updated their Facebook page with packaging images of 1 of the more extensive retooled figures we've seen this year, Generations Sandstorm! They actually have this figure in-stock and ready to ship, so it might not be too much longer before we see this at US retail. To wet your appetite further, here's the character bio:

SANDSTORM lives for action. His only real fear is a fear of boredom. As a result, he takes unnecessary risks, both in combat and out - risks that can sometimes threaten the success of his missions. He lives fast, loud, and dangerously - traits that make him fun to hang out with most of the time. But his fellow AUTOBOTS are getting a little sick of his habit of giving away his position to the DECEPTICONS just so he has the opportunity to enjoy a fight.

Transformers Legends Game Heavy Metal War Part 1 Event
Posted by News Fetcher on June 13 '13 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers superfan Ben Yee of BWTF has posted some news on the next event for the Transformers Legends Mobile Game from Mobage. The event is named Heavy Metal War, Part 1 and begins today at 5pm and runs through June 20th. This event is based on the classic Generation 1 cartoon episode of the same name, with the premise being that while Megatron and Optimus Prime duel for the fate of the Autobot base, the Constructicons Long Haul, Hook and Bonecrusher launch a covert assault on Telertraan I. This time out though it's not Dinobots in their way but Autobots Ironhide, Wheeljack, Ratchet and Brawn.

Presumably those are the new episode cards and the bosses - and with the event being based on Heavy Metal War, could we be seeing the gigantic Decepticon combiner Devastator soon?

Check out the original report at BWTF.

Transformers Go! Happy Meal Promotion 21 & 28 June 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on June 13 '13 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
McDonalds' Japanese branch has updated their website with details of their upcoming Transformers Go! Happy Meal (called Happy Set in Japan) promotion. The promotion we assume is running under the Transformers Go! banner as that is the current incarnation of the Transformers Prime series in Japan, but these promo toys are very much Transformers Prime based. There's four versions - the first two, released on 21 June 2013, feature Optimus Prime with sword slash action and Megatron with missile shooting action. On 28 June 2013 Bumblebee with punching action and Bulkhead with missile shooting action will also be released. Check out some small pictures of all four promotional toys attached to this post.

Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megatron In-Hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on June 13 '13 at 12:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member xe07 has kindly shared with us a nice look at Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megatron. A few key things to note on this one is that there seems to have been a miscommunication between the packaging guys and the ones writing the instructions - while the packaging calls him Megatron and has him wielding the awesomely named Tartarex Warp Sword, the story chapter and instructions refer to Megatron as Sharkticon Megatron, and his weapon as the Sharktooth Spear. In addition Megatron features a new faction sigil shown only on the toy, packaging and instructions use the vanilla Decepticon logo.

The instructions do reveal two new bits of information to us - the black redeco of Beast Hunters Bumblebee will be named Night Shadow Bumblebee, and more importantly, the sequel to the Transformers Exiles novel will be Transformers Retribution, coming in Fall 2013!

Masterpiece Tiger Track Availability and Bio Details
Posted by News Fetcher on June 13 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Takara-Tomy Mall has updated with news on the availability of the Tokyo Toy Show Masterpiece Tiger Track. Unlike past Tokyo Toy Show exclusives from Takara-Tomy, this one won't necessarily be available at the Tokyo Toy Show, and instead will be preordered there, with the possibility of a lottery drawing if more people want to purchase Tiger Track than available toys allows. Here are the full details, with translation provided to us by Griffin-of-oz:

Due to limited quantities, it will be a reservation lottery.
Obtain reservation/entry on the 17th (Monday) and 18th June (Tuesday), from 10am each day.
Limit one reservation per person.
If there are less reservations placed than toys, everyone gets one. If there are more reservations than toys, it comes down to a random lottery.
Winners will then be contacted by the email they provided on the reservation. Toys will then be shipped out late June. Price 6,000 yen (about $64) - Cash on delivery only.

It is worth noting that a portion of Tiger Track may be held back from this drawing, given the numbers already being offered through online retailers and the fact that in-hand pictures are circulating.

On a related note, the linked page also has a few lines by way of a bio for Masterpiece Tiger Track:

Autobot warrior Tiger Track

Transforms from robot into a Lamborghini Countach LP500S.

A cool-headed hunter, who is good at fighting without being detected by the enemy, and is held in high regard by his commander, Convoy.
Includes gun and missile launcher, plus black version pile drivers.

Transformers Go! Animation Trailer and Details
Posted by News Fetcher on June 13 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-tomy have uploaded a trailer for Transformers Go! on to their Youtube channel. The preview shows a brief clip of Kenzan racing into action and transforming - in Feudal Japan, no less! The clip demonstrates that the animation will be a hybrid of styles, combining cel animation with CG robots, and combining the detailed Japanese stock transformation style with the on-the-fly style used in Transformers Prime.

Also of interest is that there are some brief snippets of character bio (in Japanese). The combined modes are named GouKenzan, GouJinbu and GouGanoh based on which one out of Kenzan, Jinbu and Ganoh forms the upper body. In the footage Jinbu can also be heard describing himself as possessing advanced speed or agility, and Ganoh boasts that his power is "number one". Although not confirmed in the video, this fan would expect that these attributes carry over to the respective combined forms.

Check out the video clip below - and it might also be worth noting that there will also apparently be a McDonalds Happy Meal special DVD.

Posted by News Fetcher on June 12 '13 at 08:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Over the course of the last week, 3rd party group Keith's Fantasy Club has been dropping teasers for a new upcoming project. First, a teaser was shown homaging IDW's All Hail Megatron Coda. A few days later, a render of their 3rd party Perceptor was shown and this evening, we have five images of the actual prototype of this new figure. This figure is a homage to IDW's Perceptor, complete with "targeting monocle" and sniper rifle. Although no pictures of the alternate modes just yet, this figure will have three modes including robot, tank and microscope. The first teaser also hints that this will be just the first release and use of the mold, an "Akuma" and "The Surgeon" reuses are planned. The prototype in this picture is also shown in comparison with Generations Sergeant Kup. The figure is scheduled for an August 2013 release.

Fire Breaks Out On Set of Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on June 12 '13 at 07:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
In what is apparently an unfortunate tradition of accidents on the sets of live action Transformers films, The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog updated today with ABC news affiliate KVUE's report on a fire breaking out on the set of Transformers 4. The report states that a fire broke out on set and was a "controlled fire". One person was injured with a broken ankle. TMZ later reported with an update stating:

A fire broke out on the Texas set of "Transformers 4"... causing major damage to a 100-year-old home... and officials believe it may have been caused by movie pyrotechnics.

A rep for the Pflugerville Fire Department tells us ... the fire started in the attic ... but emergency responders sprung into action and were able to extinguish the blaze before it had a chance to damage the rest of the home.

Unfortunately, the FD says the attic suffered "substantial damage." The rep says, "There was one injury to a civilian who was transported to the hospital by Austin Travis County EMS. We have no other information on this person or their injury." We're told... officials believe burning embers from pyrotechnics may have caused the blaze, but they're not sure at this point.

So far, the fire is being ruled as "accidental." The FD says the home has been released back to the homeowner


Hopefully this will be the only accident and injury for the remainder of the filming! Click on the title bar to discuss!

Generations Legends Wave 4 Megatron and Starscream In-Hand
Posted by News Fetcher on June 12 '13 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Another set who are evidently now out in Japan, Generations Legends Wave 4 features two packs of Megatron with Chop Shop and Starscream with Waspinator. Some in-hand images of both toys have been posted on HK-TF by zeroeo. Pleasingly, Megatron features head articulation, a rarity in this size class, although less pleasingly the grey plastic on his arms does not blend in particularly well with that on his legs, which is most evident in tank mode. However both Megatron and Starscream (plus their Targetmaster style partners Chop Shop and Waspinator) do look like awesome little toys. Check out the pics at the link above.

Generations Optimus Prime and Jazz Wave 4 Variants
Posted by News Fetcher on June 12 '13 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With the fourth wave of Transformers Generations toys hitting in Asia now, word reaches us that the Optimus Prime and Jazz who are repacked in the case from Wave 1 actually both feature slight tweaks to the deco and the packaging making them legitimate running changes. The changes of the most note are:

The backer cards have less yellow on them. This is particularly evident on Optimus Prime's card above where it says Autobots.

Optimus Prime appears to feature darker colored plastics.

Jazz also sports darker plastic, particularly on his blue.

The most clearly obvious one, though, is that Jazz now features a painted blue visor.

Given these two, and Shockwave, are shipping again with Wave 4 to balance out the plastic weight of the wave, these variants at least take a little of the sting out of the first wave toys being made available once again. Check out the images, courtesy of Hobbybase's Facebook page.
