Transformers Universe Closed Beta Starts Tomorrow 12/12/12
Posted by News Fetcher on December 11 '12 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For those lucky selected few, tomorrow brings with it the beginning of something special - a chance to take part in the closed beta of Transformers Universe from Jagex. From 18:00 on 12/12/12 those lucky few will be able to sign in to the game and check it out for the first time - according to the email from Jagex, "This first session will focus on an initial slice of combat features only. A core selection of 4 Transformer warriors per faction will be available to compete with on a team death-match map. More features and content will be added over successive BETAs."

A second session is slated for 12/16/12.

Don't get too excited to hear too much in the way of first impressions - all beta participants will be required to agree to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), meaning they will not be allowed to talk about their impressions of the game while it is still very much in a development phase.

So for those of you who took part in the initial survey sent out in the last few weeks, check your mailboxes to see if you will be one of these privileged few.

TFW Generations Fall of Cybertron Sideswipe Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on December 11 '12 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in our series of Transformers Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 3 Galleries we have a look at Sideswipe. Sideswipe is one of the three remolded figures in the assortment. He's a remold of Autobot Jazz, and he is the most extensively remolded of the three reused molds in this wave.

Starting with the vehicle mode, the new look is very different to Jazz's car mode, and conveys that sleek, powerful look the Sideswipe character is usually known for. So far so good. Robot mode though was where Jazz was at his weakest, sorry to say the same is true of Sideswipe. The remolding to give Sideswipe his game-accurate spoiler has removed the peg that was on the Jazz version of the mold that helped the back to peg in. What this means is now the robot mode's upper torso rests on two clips near the shoulders, and they like to pop out quite often. There's also something a bit off in the whole face sculpt. That being said, the gun - which has an extending barrel in a nice touch - is a very welcome addition, but is generally too heavy for Sideswipe to hold properly, especially with the aforementioned shoulder issues.

All in all, Sideswipe is easily the weakest release of the wave. One for fans of the character or the overall design style, but not one I'd recommend over the other toys in the assortment, especially with Starscream, Kickback and Air Raid in the same cases.

Open the link below to check out the gallery, which includes some comparisons with Fall of Cybertron Jazz as well as Universe Sideswipe.

Jagex Transformers Universe Preview Article
Posted by News Fetcher on December 10 '12 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Edge Online has posted an article looking at the upcoming Transformers Universe game by Jagex, the makers of Runescape. The article looks at the challenges of creating an MMOG based on Transformers. There's some talk about the gameplay as well - namely how the game is taking more of an action based approach than your usual MMORPG like World of Warcraft. There's discussion of the idea of how teamwork will function in the game as well as a description of a mission involving mining Energon near a dam, complete with Terrorcons showing up to attack both sides.

TFW Generations Fall of Cybertron Starscream Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '12 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up, we share with you another gallery from the Transformers Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 3. Here comes a Decepticon whose record for treachery and deceit is legend. Yes, tonight we share with you this gallery of Fall of Cybertron Starscream!

Fall of Cybertron Starscream is, in this fan's eyes, level with Kickback for the best toy in the new assortment. His jet mode is suitably alien with a few nods to the various different interpretations of the design over the years. Robot mode is very good on the articulation with lots of movement in the arms and legs, nice big feet with sideways swivels to help with balance, but unfortunately as is par for the course now no waist swivel. The head, while capable of looking left and right, soon gets its vision interrupted by the shoulders, and the main torso is basically hollow from the way it forms from the jet mode. In my mind these are minor issues in what is one of the most fun little toys to come along in a while - Starscream looks great, holds poses well, and has a transformation which is a good balance between complex and intuitive. His weapon is cool as well, with a couple of display options which I have tried to capture in the gallery.

Transformers Prime Voyager Skyquake Released in Philippines
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '12 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have a reported sighting of the last pre-Beast Hunters Voyager from the Transformers Prime line. That's right, Transformers Prime Skyquake - who many of us had given up on as a victim of "late line release cancellation" - has been found at retail and purchased in the Philippines! The purchase was made by BoggeyDan on DeviantART. He has also shared some thoughts and in-hand photos of the toy, available at the link above.

Hopefully this means that Skyquake will be making it to the US in the not-too-distant future, and make Transformers Prime the first Transformers toy line in a long time to make it through retail with 100% of the announced toys released.

TV Shows on DVD has news of a new Transformers Rescue Bots DVD. Due out on 5 March 2013 by Shout! Factory, the DVD is titled "Transformers Rescue Bots Energize". The DVD runs for 110 minutes, so probably contains 4 episodes of the show. The cover, shown at left, features Optimus Prime, Blades and Chase.

There's no word on what is on the disk yet - potentially it will be a compilation of episodes from season 1 of the show, however, the new assortment of Rescue Bots shown at New York Comic Con 2012 was subtitled as "Energize", so this DVD just might tie into that assortment - and hence the show's second season - somehow.

We'l keep you updated on any new developments.

Transformers Capbots New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on December 07 '12 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hisashi Yuki, of the Takara-Tomy design team, has tweeted some new images of the Transformers Capbots. These new images show off the robot modes of Captimus Prime and Capticon alongside their packaging. In a fun coincidence (or was it by design?) the Capbots are demonstrated to be able to be worn as a baseball cap by none other than Fortress Maximus himself! How many of you will be buying one now for the sheer irony of a Fortress Maximus (or Brave Maximus, or Grand Maximus if you're lucky enough to own one) displayed wearing a baseball cap? Sound off on our 2005 Boards!
