By ORIO from TFW2005:
Site sponsor, Robot Kingdom, has updated their Facebook page with additional images of the recently revealed and speculated upon Calvin Johnson IDW Generations Deluxe Megatron figure. Detroit Lions wide-receiver and Nike endorsed, Calvin Johnson, has a nickname as "Megatron". These new images give us a better look at the fun details such as deco featuring Calvin Johnson's autograph, a football with a Decepticon symbol, and the G1 inspired gradient seen on CJ's previous Nike/TF sneaker releases.

Planet X Fall of Cybertron Swoop Prototype
Posted by News Fetcher on September 16 '13 at 10:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The third party group Planet X has updated their Facebook page with new prototype images of their upcoming unofficial Fall of Cybertron Swoop figure. Planet X is the group responsible for the massive War For Cybertron Unofficial Omega Supreme figure, Genesis. Their second offering, while considerably smaller in stature, appears to be just as high quality as Genesis was thus far. This figure is shown in a green plastic prototype and the generous amount of images shows his robot mode, Cybertronian dinosaur mode and several of the toys features including; removable weapons that are also compatible with Generations Fall of Cybertron Grimlock, loads of poseability and the ability to attach to Grimlock's shoulders just like in the video game, Fall of Cybertron. Planet X states in their Facebook update that they're open to suggestions regarding color and preorders should be available soon.

HUGE Transformers Exhibit in China!
Posted by News Fetcher on September 16 '13 at 07:15 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Word comes from China about a very large Transformers exhibit taking place, showcasing, well, almost everything! There seems to be cases upon cases of figures from the last 30 years, along with intricate dioramas and large human sized recreations of scenes from the Movies. It even has it's own store apparently, selling high end recently released items. It really is a sight to see. You can check out some of the images attached to this story, but to see them all, head on over to the thread on ACToys. Note - ACToys is a Chinese message board, it may take a while to load, due to it's location and the large amount of high res images shown in the thread.

Posted by News Fetcher on September 16 '13 at 05:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Yesterday at toy show in Vancouver, Canada called Retro and Relevant had a special guest in the form of fan favorite 3rd party group, Mastermind Creations. Mastermind Creations weren't shy at the event either, they brought along not one, but all five prototypes of their upcoming unofficial Predacon figures, the Feralcons. Most note worthy however, is our first look at the colored Prototype of the core bot of this set, Leo Dux (aka Razorclaw). Thanks to several TFW members, we have a nice little gallery of this figure! Complete with robot, vehicle and comparison shots.

Check out the images after the break and discuss in our TFW Feral Rex Mega Thread!

Masterpiece Prowl and Japanese Generations Metroplex Japanese Store Display
Posted by News Fetcher on September 16 '13 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member viper2391 shared some pictures of this cool store display from Tokyo's Akihabara district today. This store display showcases the massive amount of sheer awesome due for release in the next two weeks from Takara-Tomy. The centerpiece of the display is the gigantic Generations Metroplex - the Japanese release will feature a chrome face, plus additional paint details.

Looking very small next to Metroplex are the Japanese Generations releases of the Legends two-packs Optimus Prime and Bumblebee - these two and their Targetmaster partners will be a single four pack in Japan and will feature shiny paint.

Last and by no means least, the cool Transformers GT Maximus and the awesome Masterpiece Prowl are on display. Masterpiece Prowl looks incredible, a solid mix of the classic toy and animation model that will doubtless be topping some people's "favorite release of 2013" lists when he hits. GT Maximus sports a great and authentic deco too, mostly in white and green, but with some blue and red details included to recall the look of the original Fortress Maximus on whom he is based.

Check out all the images after the break.

New Transformers: Age Of Extinction Melee Weapons
Posted by News Fetcher on September 15 '13 at 08:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
2005 Boards Member ZombieMasterGuy is bringing us a photo of 4 Melee Weapons stored before filming of Transformers: Age Of Extinction at Pontiac, MI.

We currently have no clue as to who would wield these weapons and why. However with this finding, the number of melee weapons spotted for Transformers 4 comes to a total of 5 which includes the weapon carried by the movie's lead actor; Mark Wahlberg.

Our member has also unearthed another info and according to him, one of the weapons belong to a certain Cybertronian who would make a return.

But for now, the mystery of the 5 Melee Weapons remain unsolved.

TFW's Japanese Generations Ratbat Gallery Online
Posted by News Fetcher on September 14 '13 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
One of the recent Japan-exclusive releases from Takara-Tomy was a new version of Ratbat. Released in the Japanese Transformers Generations line, "Senator Ratbat" is a humanoid version of the Decepticon Fuel Auditor, representing Ratbat back in the early days of the Great War when he was a member of Cybertron's corrupt senate. He is a remold of the Generations Scourge toy, using the mold's alternate tooling.

What makes Senator Ratbat so cool is the use of purple. Purple, long the color of nobility, can be very striking on a toy when a nice rich pigment is used and Ratbat goes one better and uses a very attractive metallic purple shade, complemented with blacks and golds. The final look is very imperious, and very impressive, bringing out all of the molds good qualities. The new head works with this, and gives the toy an identity all of its own. In spite of being largely the same as Scourge who he is retooled from, Ratbat has an identity all of his own and doesn't even immediately come to mind as a reuse of the mold. If that is a measure of how good a retooled Transformer toy is, then Ratbat succeeds with triumphant majesty.

More Info On The Trumpchi E-jet Of Transformers: Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '13 at 11:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
On to more serious news from Transformers: Age Of Extinction. According to sources close to Guangzhou Automobile Group, the Trumpchi E-jet is set to appear on Transformers 4.

We previously received spy photos of the vehicle being filmed and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura mentioning it but this is the first official confirmation of the Trumpchi E-jet’s role on Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

"Product placements with "Transformers" would boost the profile of GAC's car brands both at home and abroad," said one of those close to the carmaker, which has local joint ventures with Fiat SpA, Honda Motor Co Ltd, Toyota Motor Corp and Mitsubishi Motors Corp.

Neither source wanted to be named due to confidentiality agreements they signed in connection with the upcoming film. A spokesperson for Paramount Pictures, the movie's distributor, said the company wouldn't confirm specific brands until nearer the release date. Paramount's local partner, China Movie Channel, declined to comment.

It wasn't clear if the Trumpchi E-jet would be cast as an heroic 'Autobot' or evil 'Decepticon' - humanoid robots that turn into familiar machines and mechanical objects - or have a more limited non-transforming, drive-on role.

One of those close to GAC said the firm wouldn't want the E-jet to be cast in an evil role. Ultimately, casting will be down to the movie's director Michael Bay.

Mr. Miller talked about how fit actor Mark Wahlberg is and how he is the opposite. TJ Miller also confirmed the name of his role as Lucas. The actor also said Mark Wahlberg told him that his hair smells nice (this is a strange strange interview. people).

Check out the whole interview at The Breakfast Television. Mind you, he accidentally shouts throughout the entire interview thinking he doesn’t have a microphone.

Super Fire Convoy Reissue - Not Getting Made
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
A while back, Big Bad Toy Store put up a pre-order for a Super Fire Convoy Reissue (Japanese version of the 2001 Robots In Disguise Optimus Prime). Fans of the line rejoiced as Car Robots and RID have repeatedly gotten the shaft in Hasbro and Takara's Classics/Reissue treatment. However, I am sad to report, it may have just been a pre-emptive move on their part to ensure pre-orders based on rumors coming out of the Asian market. Forum members are getting this in their inboxes (including me):
Quote:
Hello,

The purpose of this message is to inform you that we unfortunately will not be able to fulfill your preorder for product TAK11741 C-001 Super Fire Convoy - 2014 Reissue - Preliminary Preorder. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused. We have recently been informed that Takara will not be producing this product, which is why we are unable to fulfill our preorders. Due to this matter, all remaining preorders have been cancelled accordingly.

Thank you for your understanding during this matter and have a wonderful day!

Sincerely,

BBTS Customer Care
Hopefully one day RID will get some proper reissue love, but today doesn't look like the day.

If you want to check out what could have been, head on over to TFW2005's side project, a labor of love, RIDForever.info, one of the web's most complete archives of Car Robots and Robots In Disguise information. The C-001 Fire Convoy gallery is here.

Transformers Figure Subscription Service 2.0 Thrustinator Mock-up Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '13 at 09:30 AM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Coming off of yesterday's Club news, we now have our first look at the Subscription Service 2.0 Thrustinator!

The Transformers Collectors Club posted the mock-up of Beast Wars Thrustinator earlier today on their website.

Thrustinator, a hybrid of Beast Wars Waspinator and his Beast Machines incarnation, Thrust, is a retooled Beast Wars Second Dirgegun with a new head. Dirgegun's mold has never been made available outside of Japan officially so this is the first international release for this one. In a cool move, the organic portions are patterned like Waspinator, and the mechanical ones like Thrust.

Discuss the new images after the jump!
