Transformers Collectors Club Depth Charge New Image
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '13 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Collectors Club has posted up a new image of their 2013 membership figure, Depth Charge. Depth Charge is from the "Dawn of Future's Past" section of the Timelines figures, depicting the cast of Beast Wars in their pre-Beast Cybertronian forms. Depth Charge to this end uses the Terradive mold from Hunt for the Decepticons, as far as redecos go this is one that works rather well as the character it represents. He will make a fine stand alone piece or an excellent accompaniment to the 2006 Botcon set.

Depth Charge is due for a release later this year, in the mean time, check out the new image via the Transformers Collector's Club.

Classics Generation 2 Dreadwing ATB to be a redeco of Generations IDW Megatron?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 19 '13 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is a little conundrum for you to puzzle over, friends. The next issue of IDW's awesome Robots in Disguise ongoing was posted early on iBooks - and in one crowd scene, the eagle-eyed among us might be able to spot a familiar looking body type on one of the Decepticons. By way of Allspark user Spectre we've got the panel in question (left) - you can see it is a Generation 2 Dreadwing ATB styled redeco of the IDW stealth bomber Megatron.

Ordinarily, this would not be much more than a case of an artist using an existing design, tweaked, to make a new character to fill out a crowd scene. But with the recent revelation of IDW's characters getting toys - among them, the stealth bomber Megatron - and Hasbro's penchant for reusing molds to break even on design and production costs, and you move from a random cameo into the possibility that Dreadwing here is being planned as a future reuse of Megatron's mold.

As always we will not know for sure until we get some official confirmation of a toy being in the works - but the evidence on the table presents a compelling argument, alongside a perfect way to recognise and commemorate Generation 2 as a part of a 30th anniversary line.

Kre-O Predaking Micro Changers Combiner Images

By DESTRO from TFW2005:
Check out High-Res images of Kre-O Predaking fresh from the case at TRU. Being a big fan of the Kre-O line will keep you busy Trans-Building each character 3 times and then forming Predaking.

Ah, there’s nothing like hunting a terrified group of teensy KREONS through the jungle. Yes indeed, nothing gets my Energon flowing like plucking off a victim’s legs, putting them on the wrong way, and watching the poor fool run backward into trees. You might call it mean, but I just call it funny.

Hobbies: Hunting. Messing with tiny KREONS.
Favorite food: Steak. Rare.
Rival: TRAILCUTTER. Like I care about nature

Kre-O Bruticus Micro Changers Combiner Images
Posted by News Fetcher on February 17 '13 at 09:00 AM
By DESTRO from TFW2005:
Check out High-Res images of Kre-O Bruticus. It's amazing how much articulation you can get out of building blocks. I promise you these combiner sets will kepp you busy Trans-Building for hours at a time.

Some other KREONS call me dumb. But I have one thing to say to them – “BRUTICUS Annihilate!” Other KREONS might be smarter, but no one is as strong as me. Anyone who faces off against me better have plenty of spare parts, because I break KREONS like little toys!

Rival: SUPERION. He thinks he’s so smart and cool just because he’s made of airplanes.
Hobby: Knocking over the things DECEPTICON HOOK builds. Hilarious.
Fondest wish: To fly. Like an airplane. Even though I still think airplanes are dumb.

It's time to open the doors on the newest sub-section of our Transformers Toy Galleries - Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. We're kicking off the section with galleries of the new villainous Predacon faction, so check out these galleries of Deluxe class Lazerback and the Voyager class Predaking - the draconic leader of the evil Predacons!

As representatives of the new faction, Predaking and Lazerback represent two good new releases. They set a strong precedent for the new faction and they bring back a lot of elements from the Beast era of Transformers toys, while mixing in some clever engineering tricks at the same time. While there's a certain amount of "animal limbs become robot limbs" and claw-hands in there, they are both nicely poseable toys, lots of great detail and they're also very slightly bigger than recent releases in their respective size classes. Overall both are worth picking up, particularly if you like monster / dragon Transformers.

Rescue Bots Energize Wave 1 Variant

There's an interesting variant in the Transformers Rescue Bots lineup. The Rescue Bots Energize figures as you may be aware feature translucent blue plastic. The variant we are getting reports of suggest that on Optimus Prime and Bumblebee at the very least some toys sport a lighter shade of translucent blue, closer to the weapons than the usual darker blue. 2005 Boards member Octavius Prime reported on the variation with a comparison shot of the two different versions - he was not able to find a Heatwave or a Chase to verify if they too have variants.
