Hasbro Reveals San Diego Comic Con 2013 Exclusive Transformers Figures
Posted by News Fetcher on June 28 '13 at 11:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Hasbro has announced what they have planned to celebrate the pre-30th Anniversary of Transformers at San Diego Comic Con 2013.

The three special-edition Comic-Con toy sets run the gamut of the brand’s evolution. In preparation for the brand’s 30th anniversary, one of the sets pays tribute to Transformers: Generation 1 — the original toy line that launched in 1984. The Transformers Titan Guardians action figure set features five classic characters: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Grimlock.

For an exclusive Hero Complex article, Jerry Jivoin, Hasbro’s global brand marketing director for Transformers said “These are five of the greatest Transformers characters ever,”. Jivoin said the figures feature the original G1 colors and sculpts, based on the 1980s designs.

Another toy set — Shockwave’s Laboratory — finds inspiration from today’s popular animated series “Transformers: Prime – Beast Hunters” (currently airing on the Hub network) and features the evil Decepticon scientist and his cloning chamber, as well as a Commander Class Predaking figure
.
“We’ve changed things up a bit in this set, making its components a little different than other figures available in the mainline toys,” Jivoin said. “For example, the Voyager-scale Shockwave in this set is in Prime styling but features G1 deco. Similarly the Commander scale Predaking features a translucent Energon-infused treatment.”


The third set is of course… Metroplex!

The article also states we’ll get something out of the upcoming Transformers: Prime – Beast Hunters “Predacon Rising” movie.

Check out the images and more info at Hero Complex.

TFcon welcomes Collectible Toy Expo back to programming
Posted by News Fetcher on June 28 '13 at 11:30 AM
By Super_Megatron from TFW2005:
TFcon’s expansion to a 2 day convention was originally made possible through merging with the Canadian 80s Toy Expo on the Sunday of the event. This was necessary due to many dealers completely selling out of merchandise on the Saturday requiring a dealer room restock if a 2nd day was to be added. This year is no different with the Sunday bringing us one of Canada’s largest dealer rooms for 80s toy related merchandise consisting of dealers selling Super Heroes (Marvel, DC etc), Star Wars (new and vintage), Transformers (vintage and Japanese imports), G.I. Joe (vintage and modern), Masters of the Universe (vintage and classics), Wrestling, and tons of other Action Figures and collectibles.

TFcon, the world's largest fan-run Transformers convention will take place July 26th to 28th, 2013 in Toronto, Ontario at the Delta Meadowvale Resort and Conference Centre. You can pre-register online for TFcon 2013 via this link for the exclusives VAN GUARDIAN and ROSWELL.

TFcon 2013 features Canada's largest dealer room for Transformers merchandise, question and answer panels and autograph sessions with many special guests including Transformers voice actors Jack Angel the voice of Astrotrain, Breakdown, Cyclonus, Omega Supreme, Ramjet, Smokescreen and Ultra Magnus in the Generation 1 cartoon plus Dick Gautier the voice of Rodimus Prime, in addition to Venus Terzo the voice of Blackarachnia in Beast Wars and Beast Machines, and Transformers comic book writer James Roberts, Transformers comic book artists Livio Ramondelli, Casey Coller, Alex Milne and Josh Perez with more to be announced. The TFcon 2013 hotel block is still available.

Transformers Robots in Disguise Issue #19 Preview
Posted by News Fetcher on June 28 '13 at 09:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Newsarama has posted a full preview of next Wednesday's new issue of Robots in Disguise. Robots in Disguise #19 sees us checking in with Orion Pax once again and also brings Waspinator into the foreground! Plus as eagle-eyed Chris McFeely pointed out in his report, the retailer incentive cover looks a lot like the IDW Generations Deluxe style pack-in comics - so is this a hint at a larger Generations Waspinator potentially being planned?

Transformers GO! Jinbu Recall and Replacement Piece
Posted by News Fetcher on June 27 '13 at 08:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
TakaraTomy have issued a recall and replacement of Transformers GO! Jinbu due to a factory mis-assembly of the thighs. This mis-assembly causes the knees to not be able to bend the correct way and therefore, the combined modes arms do not bend the correct way either. Unsold stock has been recalled and customers (in Japan) who purchased the figure can return it for a correctly assembled replacement which will be available from mid-July.If one chooses not to return their figure, the error can be corrected by disassembling and reassembling the figure but there is the risk of misplacing parts like springs etc.

There is a picture attached for those who need to reference and check any figures they have in hand currently.

Botcon News - Potential US Releases and Titan Class Metroplex Available Tomorrow?
Posted by News Fetcher on June 27 '13 at 08:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
News is reaching us from San Diego from various sources that have had a glimpse of the Botcon 2013 dealer room. Apparently, in the 30th Anniversary display case the following figures are displayed:

A Generation 1 Predaking Reissue

Year of The Snake Platinum Edition Omega Supreme

Year of The Snake Platinum Edition Energon Optimus Prime

Year of The Snake Bruticus VS Grimlock Box Set
Now, we can't confirm that this is an indication that these figures will be available at US Retail in the future, or if they are just there to enhance the display case. We'll update when we get more information.

ALSO, our sources are saying there are six foot tall pallets of Generations Titan Class Metroplex. The figure will apparently be FOR SALE tomorrow at the show floor from site sponsor Bigbadtoystore.com. They will have limited quantities and the price will be $150. BBTS had to air ship in from china. Preorders for him will go up on Monday July 1st at $110, arriving early August.

We'll update when we can confirm the above information! For now, speculate like crazy on the 2005 boards!

Transformers: Prime Season 3 Beast Hunters Episode #9 Evolution Video Clip & 2 New Promo Stills
Posted by News Fetcher on June 27 '13 at 06:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
MTV Geek has posted 2 new Promo Stills and a Video Clip from this Friday's episode of Transformers: Prime -Season 3: Beast Hunters Episode #9 - Evolution.

The clip features quite a big moment from the upcoming episode and we have it on You Tube thanks to You Tube User TFPSeason2Upload.

The very beginning of the clip shows that it ties in with the events of the previous episode where Knockout was ordered by Megatron to hand over all his projects to Shockwave as a punishment.

The two promo stills feature Ultra Magnus and Wheeljack working together and the second still features Predaking in front of what is undoubtedly a Space/Ground Bridge.

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
An Instagram image has turned up on the internet featuring our first Prop Piece from Transformers 4. It is very unclear what this is, but 2005 Boards member SamNickelson mentions it looks a bit like a part of Decepticon Figther Jet as seen on the previous live action movie; Transformers: Dark of the Moon. But he says it could be even something else.

We'll keep you updated as more info arrive.

By ORIO from TFW2005:
It's time for a new Transformers sighting at US retail! 2005 Board members WorldsGreatest and XTerry have both found the new monstrous Ultimate Beast Hunters Dragon Fire Optimus Prime at their local Toys R Us stores (Maryland and California). It's unusual to see a simultaneous new sighting on both ends of the country, so these sightings should make many fans happy!
