TFC Toys Teases G1 Inspired Combining Dinobots and Defensor
Posted by News Fetcher on September 18 '12 at 08:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Remember those Starcat combining not-Dinobot figures from awhile back? Well courtesy of a post on AC Toys, we have artwork teasing three of the figures in Generation 1 color schemes. Shown in the pictures from AC Toys are homages to Generation 1 Grimlock, Slag and Sludge. Since we haven't seen the original version of this combiner get a release, could this color scheme be the first offer from TFC Toys' Starcats line?

Also shown on ACtoys is artwork for their Starcats Protectobot themed combiner. You can comment on that artwork in the TFC "Defensor" thread.

On this day in 1984 - Celebrating 28 years of Transformers Generation 1 the Cartoon
Posted by News Fetcher on September 17 '12 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Many millions of years ago, on the planet Cybertron, life existed.
But not life as we know it today. Intelligent robots that could think and feel inhabited the cities. They were called Autobots and Decepticons. But the brutal Decepticons were driven by a single goal - total domination. They set out to destroy the peace-loving Autobots - and a war between good and evil raged across Cybertron; devastating all in its path, draining the planet's once rich sources of energy. The Autobots, on the verge of extinction, battled valiantly to survive...


With these words on this day in 1984, the first-ever episode of Transformers Generation 1 was broadcast. While Transformers itself had already launched with the first issue of the comic book from Marvel comics on May 8 1984, for many of us it was the cartoon that truly cemented the Transformers into our imagination. In this first episode we were introduced to the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons and their war that had led them to leave their homeworld of Cybertron and crashland on Earth. It was the beginning of a legend that would span 98 episodes and a theatrical released movie, not to mention countless series that spun off from the mythology on both sides of the Pacific. This original three-part story arc even now stands the test of time and stands strong and proud as the beginning of all Transformers cartoons.

If you were a fan from the beginning who remembers watching More than Meets the Eye Part 1 on the original broadcast or one of the members of our fandom who perhaps joined later, I hope that today you will join me in raising a glass and celebrating the 28th birthday of the first airing of the cartoon that started it all.

Happy 28th birthday, More than Meets the Eye! Happy 28th birthday, Transformers cartoons!

Pictured at left, Wheeljack, the first Transformer to appear on screen in More than Meets the Eye Part 1.

Transformers Prime Season 3 will be 16 Episodes, NOT the Final Season
Posted by News Fetcher on September 16 '12 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Prime voice actors Jeffrey Combs and Tony Todd are appearing at the El Paso Comic Con in Texas this weekend - and at a joint panel Jeffrey Combs has dropped a few bombshells regarding the future of the Transformers Prime series. By way of 2005 Boards member MiraiBaby who is at the convention we can relay this news to you:

Season 3 will only last 16 episodes

Combs just finished recording the last episode to season 3

UPDATE Jeffrey Combs confirmed today 9/16/2012 that there will be a fourth season of Transformers Prime - the series will NOT end with season 3. Early cutoff rumor untrue."

What this means for the recently revealed "Beast Hunters" and the leaked Hasbro document suggesting Transformers Prime is planned to continue through 2015 is unclear - more information will hopefully follow. Keep it TFW2005 and we will share more information as it reaches us.
