RUMOR - Disney In Talks To Purchase Hasbro Inc And Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on November 05 '12 at 03:15 PM
By DESTRO from TFW2005:
This may turn out to be the biggest TRANSFORMERS news story of the year if it turns out to be true. The folks over MTV Geek have kicked up the rumor cloud surrounding Disney and it's recent use of purchasing power. This time Hasbro itself is in the crosshairs!

"By "Geek Spy"
OK folks, take this one with a grain of plastic for the time being. Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve heard that Disney acquired Lucasfilm for roughly $4 billion last week and Marvel for around the same price a few years prior. Well, we have it on good authority that serious discussions are happening at the highest levels of both Disney and Hasbro to fold the largest toy and game company on the planet into the Mouse.

From what we’re told, these are still just discussions at this point, but serious enough that something could be announced at any time and create ripples throughout the entertainment industry. "

Maketoys Missile Launcher - Power Core Combiner Limbs
Posted by News Fetcher on November 05 '12 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For a while now we've been hearing that Maketoys has a robot in production based on The Fallen, named Mobain. We'd seen that it had Power Core Combiner functionality, that the arms and legs could split off to form weapons systems or sets of limbs for the Power Core Combiners in their own right. Now it appears that Maketoys is splitting up the Mobain, with the limbs-tank being sold separately in two different decos. The set is named "Missile Launcher" and comes in "Jungle Type" green deco colored to match Power Core Combiners Heavy Tread, and "Marine Type" gray deco, ostensibly colored to match with Undertow. According to the linked pages on Big Bad Toy Store, they are going to retail at $54.99 and are due for a release in December.

There's still no word on the teased black deco or the release of the second tank that was shown in early pictures and presumably forms the core robot of the Mobain. One can assume from Maketoy's past form, though, that the core tank will be released separately and then a giftset - with the source-material accurate deco - will follow afterwards.

Fall of Cybertron Torque - New Ford Based Transformer Design
Posted by News Fetcher on November 04 '12 at 10:30 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Anyone remember Falcatron? The Australian fan decided Ford based Transformer? Well, Ford is at it again with another character created using fan influence. Fans got to vote on whether this character would be Autobot, Decepticon, what kind of alternate mode he would have and more. This time, meet Torque, (not to be confused with our very own 2005 Board member) who has been debuted on Motorauthority.com. The website has the following to say on this new design:

This time the fans chose the Ranger, but in its range-topping Wildtrak trim. This model packs a 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbodiesel that’s rated at 197 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque.

Torque’s bright orange finish is available on the Ranger Wildtrak, though that’s about all he has in common with the actual production model.

Ford has said it plans to use Torque in some promotional materials, just like it is doing with Falcatron. However, don’t hold your breath waiting to see either in Transformers 4--they were created just for Ford’s own promotional use.

Upcoming Transformers United and Arms Micron Releases - United Hardhead and Reflector
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '12 at 09:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Meister79, posting over at the Allspark, has shared an interesting bit of news with the fandom. He's posted a Takara-Tomy solicitation which includes a whole bunch of new toy names which we have not previously heard about. Toys on the list include:

United Reflecter (sic) - This one is priced at the Deluxe pricepoint, so it is potentially a release of the Reveal the Shield Perceptor redeco with the alternate head mentioned at Botcon 2010.
United Hard Head - again a Deluxe priced release, this might well be a release of the Deluxe Warpath with the alternate, Hardhead inspired tooling.
United Shock Wave - priced the same as the Takara-Tomy Generations Optimus Prime and Jazz, so potentially a release of the Fall of Cybertron toy with a shiny paint job like the Takara-Tomy Generations are sporting.
United Gremrock (sic) - again, priced at the Deluxe pricepoint like Shockwave.
United Starscream
United Swindle

There are also two new Transformers Prime Arms Micron entries on the list:

AM36 MMOG Thundertron - this sounds like an Arms Micron series release for Thundertron. What is of interest is that first bit - MMOG - which might possibly stand for "Massive Multiplayer Online Game", i.e. suggesting that Thundertron is going to make an appearance in one of the online Transformers games currently in development. Potentially Transformers Universe since we already know the Star Seekers are represented in that game.
AM37 Preview Optimus Prime Re-do - This is at the Arms Micron Deluxe pricepoint so it is potentially second release for Japan of the First Edition Optimus Prime Deluxe class toy, although your guess is as good as ours what the "re-do" means.

The list itself includes a healthy mix of Takra-Tomy Japanese market items and also confirmed Asia exclusives, so time will tell if any of those United toys will be released in Japan or will be more Asia exclusives.

More news from TFSource! They have also posted an update on the Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron toy Darkest Megatron. The new picture they have posted from a solicit indicates that the core Megatron figure will be another reuse of the Voyager class Megatron from the mainline Prime toys. The solicit also shows that Megatron will come with three Arms Microns, (we assume) redecos of AMW-01 through 03 who combine to form the huge Dark Matter Calibre Sword.

Right now what is shown are placeholders for each toy in the set using previously released toys. What this tells us though is which Megatron toy is being repurposed by Takara-Tomy for their Darkest Megatron and which Arms Microns he comes with.
