Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '13 at 10:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Thanks to a posting on Weibo, we have a new image of IGear's upcoming releases in their popular Mini-Warriors line. Shown in this picture are MW-05 Cogz, MW-06 Duneraker, MW-07 Veer and MW-08 Bushwacker in vehicle modes. To be more clear, those are unofficial versions of Gears, Beachcomber, Swerve and Outback. We get a good look at Veer and Bushwacker's weapons in this picture (Veer has a tommy gun!) and the picture indicates these are in production and should hopefully meet their expected release date of next month.

Megan Fox Will Not Return For Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '13 at 07:00 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Michael Bay and Megan Fox buried the hatchet and became professional friends again. She even got the part of April O’Neil on his upcoming movie Ninja Turtles. However, reporters constantly asked Mr. Bay whether Megan Fox will return to the Transformers Live Action Movie Franchise. He finally gave an answer.

"No. Because it's a totally different story," Bay continued to explain. "It's with Mark Wahlberg and his daughter. It's the same [world]," Bay clarified, explaining that 4 will not be a complete reboot. "You have the three movies, but there's a reason why there's a new cast. And it's explained very clearly when you see it, and it's going to feel natural. So it's not like we're starting over or anything like that."

We are yet to hear the name of a newcomer as the Director promised during the CinemaCon 2013.

Hasbro Says Transformers Sales Were Relatively Flat In The 2013 1st Quarter
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '13 at 11:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Hasbro held its 2013 1st Quarter Financial Conference Call yesterday and TFW2005 staff attended live online.

During the Financial Statement reading, Hasbro representatives said:

"Boys Action Battling games, including Angry Birds, Star Wars and Transformers initiatives, continued to resonate with consumers nearly doubling revenues in the quarter.

Also within preschool our Playskool Heroes line is leveraging great brands, including Transformers and Marvel, to deliver growth. Having launched less than two years ago, Playskool Heroes has performed extremely well, growing revenues and gaining share.

Finally, in 2013, we've completely reinvented Transformers across platforms, including a television series distributed globally, online and mobile games, licensed products, and a full line of new toys based on the all new Transformers: Beast Hunters theme."


At the very end of the call; during the Q&A session, a question was asked regarding the overall financial performance of the Transformers Brand in the 1st quarter of 2013:

"If I recall, in first quarter last year transformers had [eroded ?] in lesser rate than we typically think of. Can you give any number on how Transformers did on a second year off a movie; this time vs. the last time?"

Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner delivered the answer:

"Transformers in this quarter is relatively flat. We are transitioning out of what was last year's mostly an entertainment-lead, television-led business. We are transitioning into the whole Transformers: Beast Hunters re-imagining with a new TV Series which launched just now and products rolling out throughout the year. Transformers, as you know, is a strong international brand for us but we saw a roughly flat business when we rolled out from one product line and into another."

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The latest edition of Previews comes with an unexpected surprise - a new Cyberverse Commander toy is revealed. A redeco of Trailcutter, Huffer joins the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters series! He features his distinctive orange and purple deco, which looks quite fitting on the mold. Furthermore this corroborates the mysterious Huffer listing on the Hasbro Transformers site's Shockwave's lab game, which had a picture of Power Core Combiners Commander Class Huffer.

Transformers Go! Ninja Team Silhouettes and Possible Animated Series
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '13 at 10:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A new brochure advertising Transformers Go! and its Japanese original characters has begun to be distributed. The brochure shows silhouettes of the three samurai characters Kenzan, Jinbu and Ganoh at left along with their combined mode - and at right, silhouettes can be seen of three more characters, thought to be the ninjas Gekisomaru, Hishomaru and Sensuimaru. Behind them is a second shadow, which is thought to be a combined mode of the three ninjas.

Moreover, the flyer advertises that a Transformers Go! animated series will be made. There's no other news on this as yet - it seems that, according to information posted by Snakas, the full report will be published in a June 1 kids magazine in Japan, quite probably TV-Kun.

The original source for the flyer, as best we are aware, is the Twitter of noiseblaster. The flyer is expected to be officially distributed on Friday the 27th when the Transformers Go! toyline launches in Japan.

New Masterpiece Prototype Photos for MP-17 Prowl and MP-18 Streak
Posted by News Fetcher on April 22 '13 at 11:15 PM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Site Sponsor TFSource just sent us some photos of prototypes for the highly-anticipated Masterpiece figures Prowl and Streak! While they are a bit on the small side of things, we get an additional look at these up-coming figures in both modes. While we have seen the attack mode feature and the missile launchers before in a previous news article, these photos tell us that TakaraTomy is surely marching on with the Masterpiece line! Ol' Quaddy here distinctly remembers the excitement seeing the first Masterpiece prototype of MP-01 Convoy along with Binaltech Smokescreen, and these evoke much the same excitement!

If you haven't secured your preorders for these two figures, be sure to jump on over to TFSource to make sure you get yours! Prowl can be found here and Streak can be found here.

Transformers Go! First Images of Combiner Figures, Gaidorah
Posted by News Fetcher on April 22 '13 at 10:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has updated their preorder listings for the Transformers GO! combiner figures. Original listings of these figures had fans perplexed on what they might be or how they might combine. Robot Kingdom has been kind enough to shed some light on the future releases. Shown here are G-01 Kanzen (The police Car), G-03 Ganoh and Jinbu (Jet). The three figures can combine by one robot becoming the legs, the 2nd a torso and the third bot becomes the head, shoulders and arms. One might compare it to Robots In Disguise Rail Racer with Transformers Energon's swapability. Others will definitely see the designs as a homage to Brave as well.

Also revealed is G-04 Gaidorah, a Transformers Go! redeco of Beast Hunters Lazerback.

Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has updated their preorder listings for the Transformers GO! combiner figures. Original listings of these figures had fans perplexed on what they might be or how they might combine. Robot Kingdom has been kind enough to shed some light on the future releases. Shown here are G-01 Kanzen (The police Car) and G-03 Ganoh. The third figure, Jinbu (Jet) has yet to be revealed. The three figures can combine by one robot becoming the legs, the 2nd a torso and the third bot becomes the head, shoulders and arms. One might compare it to Robots In Disguise Rail Racer with Transformers Energon's swapability. Others will definitely see the designs as a homage to Brave as well.
