Well then... now for some unusual Transformer news.
We here at TFW would like to bring to your attention some new costumes, marketed as "lingerie", which were advertised earlier today on the Facebook page of Leg Avenue
. What TFW2005 member, AoE, was doing on this particular website is none of our business. However, the costumes in question appear to be adult women costumes based off of the Animated versions of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron. Because all three of those characters are dead sexy when you think about them.
Maybe this is your thing. Maybe these are GREAT costumes for Halloween. Either way, they exist and are therefore amazing! You can check out the image for them by clicking on the title bar!Read Replies (0)

This year appears to be the year of Dinobots and of Ultra Magnus! With all the current hype of the official Masterpiece Ultra Magnus
, KFC has revealed the repaints of their unofficial Masterpiece Ultra Magnus, Citizen Stack. Revealed earlier today via KFC toys' Facebook
was their Eavi Metal Shining Yellow Citizen Stack which is an homage to the E-Hobby 2001 release of their clear yellow plastic Generation 1 Ultra Magnus
. The second reveal shows off DAI Stack. Dai Stack will be an unofficial Diaclone Powered Magnus, complete with a new head with faceplate.
You can take a look at both new renders by clicking the title bar.Read Replies (0)

2005 Boards member jru42287 has learned of some interesting new entries in the Toys R Us computer system.
The first of these entries, with a retail value listed of $129.99, is a "Transformers MV4 Optimus Trailer Platinum Edition" which by the sounds of it is a Platinum Edition version of Age of Extinction Optimus Prime complete with trailer. An image is shown with the listing, showing a more detailed truck mode than we have seen so far with a Generation 1 inspired trailer, although the image might be a placeholder.
Second is another Platinum Series set, titled "Breakout Scene". This set curiously has a Generations Skids pictured with it in spite of being explicitly labelled as "TRA MV4", or Transformers Movie 4. The Skids is colored to look like the Sonic rally car, though may be a placeholder since he's a non-movie toy. The set is listed as $59.99 which implies there may be more to it than just this one Deluxe - although we may never know, since it is in "D" status, suggesting the set has been discontinued. This may mean it is not happening, or just that it is not yet fully confirmed.
Lastly there are two more sets of listings, one set for Transformers Age of Extinction Leaders and one set for Transformers Generations Leader class toys. Both sets of listings feature three toys listed - which in both cases covers the two known Leaders (Grimlock and Optimus Prime for Age of Extinction, Megatron and Jetfire for Generations). There's no information on who the third Leader for either line is, though, but rumors are that the third Age of Extinction Leader may be a reworked Dark of the Moon Leader Bumblebee.Read Replies (0)

Our collecting community has been buzzing with the recent prototype images
of the highly anticipated MP-22 Ultra Magnus! Continuing the exciting news, we just received word from our friend and sponsor BigBadToyStore that the original price of this figure (which was slated at $279.99 this past year) has been reduced to only $189.99 (check out the preorder here
)! This price reduction is based on the 19,440 Yen retail price in Japan.
Although this is fantastic news for everyone's wallet, please be advised the price is still subject to change if the MSRP raises above the 19,440 Yen. The good news still stands though, we possibly can expect to see a final price much lower than we originally thought.
Be sure to continue the discussion in the Masterpiece Ultra Magnus thread here
and keep it locked on TFW2005 as we update you with any new reveals!Read Replies (0)
