Dr Wu Dr of Evil - The Earth Careerist
Posted by News Fetcher on March 14 '13 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yes, you read that right - that oddly named piece is the next release from Dr Wu. The Dr of Evil is also known as Dr Archevil, human ally of the Decepticons from the classic Generation 1 Transformers arc The Ultimate Doom. This minifigure is a bit bigger than the Dr Wu Partners figures, and is designed to represent the good evil Dr in all his megalomanical glory.

New Official Images of Ultimate Beast Hunters Optimus
Posted by News Fetcher on March 13 '13 at 11:30 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
In what appears to be somewhat of a mishap, Bigbadtoystore.com has updated their voyager listing of Beast Hunters Optimus Prime with new images of Ultimate Beast Hunters Optimus Prime. These images differ from what was provided to us from Hasbro shortly after Toyfair, as they seem to be a lot less photoshopped.

Take a look at the original images and then compare them with the new images here for what appears to be the biggest Optimus Prime figure for the Beast Hunters line!

James Roberts Drops Teasers More Than Meets the Eye #15
Posted by News Fetcher on March 13 '13 at 07:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The uncomparable scribe of IDW's Transformers More Than Meets the Eye has posted on the IDW publishing forums. In this post he teases a few things regarding next weeks issue of More Than Meets The Eye in which we'll get to see the crew of the Lost Light go head to head with Overlord. If you're familiar with IDW's version of Overlord, you know that what's in store for next will not be pretty. James has provided youtube links to a few songs he's had in mind for the issue for fans to digest or serve as a soundtrack if they choose. Some of the song titles themselves may be considered spoilers themselves, so please proceed with caution!

James has provided the following bits for fans to drool over in anticipation though:

Here is this months dialogue snippet: "I really don't know if I can forgive you for this."

One last thing: I plan MTMTE out very carefully, and have done since the start. You know, grand plans and all that. In this issue, for the first time, and in connection with a certain character, I changed the grand plan. When the dust settles, and assuming you're still talking to me, and assuming people want to know, I'll spill the beans.

See you next month for the aftermath.

Within this interview we learn why Masterpiece Soundwave took so long, how difficult the cassette Transformers were to design and even touches upon how much of the Generation 1 cartoon he's watched to get these toys done properly. Also, Shogo mentions several characters he'd like to give the Masterpiece treatment to: Jazz, Bruticus and Ultra Magnus.

Greg Weisman writing episodes for Transformers Prime and Rescue Bots
Posted by News Fetcher on March 13 '13 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is some good news - in an interview with World's Finest, writer Greg Weisman mentions he has done some work, freelance, writing for the current incarnations of Transformers, Transformers Prime (Beast Hunters we assume) and Rescue Bots. For those not familiar with Greg Weisman, he is an expert at crafting intricate stories filled with characterization and clever twists. You might have seen some of his work in Gargoyles, the Spectacular Spider-Man or Young Justice.

These will most likely be one-shot episodes given his freelance role in the series, but if they are half as awesome as an episode of any of those three series we are in for a treat.

Check out the full interview over at World's Finest.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Gunshot has shared with us another advance look at an upcoming Transformers Prime Beast Hunters release - from Beast Hunters Cyberverse Wave 2, here is a look at Soundwave! In Gunshot's own words, "This little Soundwave is fantastic, and looks fairly accurate in both modes. Articulation is as expected of legion class toys and at least he has elbow joints!"

Transformers Go Decepticon Combiner
Posted by News Fetcher on March 11 '13 at 09:00 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Building upon the intriguing Transformers Go revelations...we have new info for you thanks to Young Padawan! Previously we had heard that the 3 samurai characters were combiners. Then Young Padawan posted this:

The police car is in blue, fire truck is in red and the fighter jet is in yellow. From what i heard from the rep, the difference in price for G-01 is because of lights and sound effects, not due to any particular big disparity in size between the 3 bots. All 3 bots have their own combiner heads and can combine in 3 different combiner forms, looks pretty good.

followed by....

Wait til you guys see the the other 3 decepticon combiner bots.

Meanwhile, Gaokaiser pulled out an image from a TakaraTomy event last year, which while blurry, may actually show the character designs of the new Transformers Go characters, as Young Padawan pointed out that the yellow/black robot may be the jet samurai.

The plot thickens!

BTS Toys Motion Crytotype Base Encore Edition Review
Posted by News Fetcher on March 11 '13 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We recently had a chance to look at the reissue version of the BTS Toys trailer set. This new version of the BTS Toys trailer is matched for the United Black Optimus Prime, but if you do not have that particular toy it makes for a fine trailer for any other Nemesis Prime that you might have - if you happen to have the appropriate trailer connector parts for it.

Read on to check out our thoughts on this piece - or if you, like me, feel that a picture is worth a thousand words, then check out our gallery of this newest release from BTS by opening the link below:

By ORIO from TFW2005:
Courtesy of Ages Three and Up's Facebook page, we have our first look at final photos of Fansproject's re-release of their Munition and Explorer kits. This often delayed and highly anticipate re-release not only gives fans a chance to purchase these fantastic toys if they missed out the first time, but also gives us more Generation 1 paint jobs. Additionally, the combiner accessory pieces share different colors as well. No photos of the individual figures just yet, but this gives us our look at the combined form, Colossus.

TFW Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Ripclaw Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 10 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It's time for a new Transformers toy gallery for you. In keeping with the impending return of Transformers Prime to our televisions with the premiere of Beast Hunters later this month, we have a look at another one of the Predacons for you. She's a lean, draconic Autobot hunting machine and her name is Ripclaw!

Beast Hunters Ripclaw is one of those "love or hate" toys, I feel. Her design is excellent, with nice detail on the wings and a brilliant shape to both modes that gives her a unique silhouette. Her weapon is a "syphon claw", in the style of a Spark Extractor from Beast Machines, and it is kind of cool, as the claws lock open and only snap shut when a button in the middle of the claw is pressed. The bad, though, is that Ripclaw is a bit lacking in the articulation department. She's got nice movement in the legs, but no bicep swivels, and her head is mostly limited to looking up and down, thanks to her collar in robot mode.

Ripclaw's other main feature is her tail, which features a rubberized core. It can be locked into a C-shape or left unlocked to give it a little free movement. It is possible with this feature to put Ripclaw in some cool poses mimicking Ser-Ket from the Rage of the Dinobots miniseries, who shares Ripclaw's design. However, weight can become an issue with the tail in robot mode, making Ripclaw's legs occasionally give way.

All in all though, Ripclaw is a fun toy with a very nice design. She's not for everyone, but what she does, she does well.
