Takara-Tomy Transformers FJ Optimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on August 12 '13 at 03:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Japanese retailer Yodobashi Camera have updated their website with a new listing for something called "Transformers FJ Optimus Prime".

There is very little information on the Optimus Prime on the listing beyond the name, the price - 3,780 yen, with an MSRP of 4,200 yen, which is similar to the pricepoint of the Alternity line - and a release date of 28 September 2013.

What this is, and what the "FJ" stands for are unknown. Details on the order page are scant and no photos are provided. Watch this space for more information as it becomes available.

Given that the possibility of a sequel to Monstrosity has been put around and that Primacy is mentioned in the same breath as the previous two digital-first series, could Flint Dille have teased the name of the possible sequel to Monstrosity? Take it as a rumor for now, and watch this space.

By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:

The figure that sold out quickly in Japan and here in the US at TRU as Masterpiece Optimus Prime looks more like the Japanese version with darker blue. Of note is that it will come with a display stand which will allow you to pose Optimus in all types of unique action stances. That was mentioned to be "while supplies last".

TFW's Generations Bumblebee Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '13 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in our series of galleries looking at the Transformers Generations Wave 5 is Bumblebee! This version of the beloved yellow Autobot is based on the rebuilt body Bumblebee received at the end of his miniseries early in the Mike Costa era and that he then retained for the remainder of the ongoing. It is best described visually as a hybrid of classic and movie Bumblebee designs, giving Bumblebee a look which is both modern in respect of the resemblance to the Movie and Prime musclecar Bumblebees, but also retro with some of the nods to the original Bumblebee - in particular the headsculpt, which is a Bumblebee face very strongly based on the Generation 1 look that you can almost see Dan Gilvezan providing the voice of.

That being said, while Bumblebee has a great look, he falls far short of the other new toys in this assortment. Unlike Trailcutter, Megatron and Orion Pax, there are some vehicle mode parts left hanging off of the robot mode, in particular the whole roof of the car. But Bumblebee also falls short technically, with his elbow movement restricted by hard plastic notches, a shade of yellow plastic that may not please everyone, and the sliding panels on the lower leg feeling tight to the point you worry you might break them. On my Bumblebee also the legs, which are purely friction joints - not balljoints or even pin joints - were a bit loose at the knees. It is a pity, because there are a lot of good ideas that went into the Bumblebee design - but I was left feeling that Bumblebee perhaps should have been put back a wave to let his design be polished to the level of Megatron, Trailcutter or Orion Pax.

Transformers 4 On Set Videos 7-8 August 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '13 at 02:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As the filming in Detroit continues, more on-set videos showing off some of what is going on has come to our attention! This first video by hendrixflash on Youtube shows Hound and Bumblebee racing through the streets:



This next clip from jerry48192 shows a different angle on what is presumably the railcar drop stunt - a blue SUV is seen reversing at speed as bits of debris rain down:



This last video by Daavaaad shows the blue SUV again, this time with a camera rig mounted on it, presumably to shoot the same scene from a "in vehicle" type of angle.

Nick Roche has posted a preview of the second More than Meets the Eye print he will have available at Auto Assembly 2013 this weekend. Titled "The Wake", it is set after More than Meets the Eye 15. It's a somber mood in Swerve's as lost friends are remembered.

Nick Roche has also tweeted another piece of art that he will have available, a Beast Hunters piece from Rage of the Dinobots, which depicts all five Dinobots VS Shockwave. Retreat... is logical.

These prints will be available at Nick Roche's table at Auto Assembly 2013 this weekend, 9 - 11 August 2013 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham, England.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the star cars of Transformers 4 will be on show tomorrow! The vehicles including the 2014 Bumblebee concept Camaro and Optimus Prime will be exhibited to the public at the corner of Clifford and Adams from 2:30-5:30 pm.

Who knows, perhaps we will even learn a name or two in the process! If you are in the area tomorrow be sure to check it out.
