TFW Beast Hunters Predaking and Lazerback Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on February 17 '13 at 07:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
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.

Open the links below to check out the galleries:

Rescue Bots Energize Wave 1 Variant
Posted by News Fetcher on February 17 '13 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
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.

TFW Transformers Prime Arms Micron Stunt Wildrider Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on February 16 '13 at 06:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next Transformers toy gallery update, we would like to draw your attention to SydneyY's gallery of Transformers Prime Arms Micron series Stunt Wildrider. Stunt Wildrider is a Japan exclusive release, remolded from the Autobot Wheeljack and sporting a Generation 1 inspired square head with spikes on his ears. He features a rather striking grey and red deco again referencing his Generation 1 self. As well as coming with Wheeljack's twin swords he sports a new Arms Micron, Ozu, an elephant which transforms into a grenade launcher.

All in all, this is a nice looking redeco. Its Japan-exclusive nature means you will need to pay that little bit more to get hold of it, of course - so check out the gallery below and decide for yourself how much you like it.

Beast Machines Unreleased Megatron Megabolt In Package Images
Posted by News Fetcher on February 16 '13 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is a real blast from the past. Via the Futaba image board we can share some images of a packaged sample of Megatron Megabolt from the Beast Machines line with you. For those not familiar with this toy, it was originally intended for a release in 2001 as a part of the Beast Machines Battle for the Spark line, but the line was cancelled before it ever made it to retail (the toy would later be released, repackaged, under the Robots in Disguise line). What we have here for you is a rare look at a packaged sample of the Battle for the Spark Megatron Megabolt, a toy which like the Generation 2 Stunticons or Megatron ATB only exists in very small (probably single digit) quantities.

Take a look and enjoy!

Kre-O Devastator Micro Changers Combiner Images
Posted by News Fetcher on February 15 '13 at 02:45 PM
By DESTRO from TFW2005:
Check out High-Res images of Kre-O Devastator 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 Devastator.

CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR cannot be defeated. Puny AUTOBOTS are always scorching me with their tiny lasers, but nothing hurts CONSTRUCTICON DEVASTATOR. I smash and dismantle all who oppose me! Then I kick their bricks into the closest river!

Hates: AUTOBOTS. Thinking.
Favorite TV show: The one with the guys who blow stuff up all the time.
Prefers: Devastating to constructing.

Many more Kre-O Devastator images after the jump.

Bot Shots Cindersaur and single pack Scourge Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on February 15 '13 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Another pair of Bot Shots have been revealed through an update to the Hasbro Bot Shots page. The page now includes some information and bios on the first Predacon Bot Shots. Twinstrike (aka Sinnertwin) was among those on the Hasbro display at Toy Fair; we've got confirmation that it is indeed him from this update. This update also reveals that the Dinobot looking Predacon is in fact going to be named Scourge - he's already got a redeco coming in a three pack with Sergeant Kup and Blitzwing, too. Third of this trio of new Predacon Bot Shots reveals is Cindersaur - and to the best of our knowledge, he's new to us! No word on the assortments that these three are debuting in, but expect to potentially see them appearing from the next assortment onwards.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters to be called Transformers Go! in Japan
Posted by News Fetcher on February 15 '13 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Scans from a Japanese retailer catalog have been posted on Twitter by Twitter user trafes20120505. There's four scans of Transformers related material, two of them, Transformers GT and Generations, show us little we've not seen already. The other two though, showcase new releases in the BeCool line as well as Beast Hunters Japanese release!

The Japanese release of Beast Hunters will be known as Transformers Go! The catalog scan reveals the same toys we had heard previously, and presently only shows the US release toys, possibly as placeholders. There's no indication at present of any extras like new paint jobs or Arms Micron partners.

The page for BeCool is the one that reveals a few new toys. It seems that last year's assortment of the Bot Shots Launchers will be making their way to Japan. All four will be altered though - Optimus Prime's trailer will be blue, rather than gray. Ironhide will be red rather than movie black, Starscream will be yellow and Megatron green. It is unclear what characters these are meant to represent, given the nature of the link between BeCool and the Transformers franchise in Japan.

With the Botcon 2013 items being related to the Machine Wars line, we though today would be a good time to take a look at the original line. Machine Wars itself was a short lived line of KB Toys exclusive figures meant to offer vehicles during the height of the Beast era. Check out some of the figures below.

New Beast Hunters Promo Image
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '13 at 10:15 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
The Official Transformers Facebook page has uploaded a new promotional image for Beast Hunters featuring Optimus Prime & Megatron. Interestingly enough, unlike both the voyager Beast Hunter Optimus and Ultimate Optimus Prime figures, Prime in this image sports his battle mask. The image also shows Prime sporting a green Star Saber and green eyes like on the aforementioned toys.

Could a battle mask head sculpt be planned as running changes to both of the figures or used later on for repaints/retools? While Predaking has been hyped as the main nemesis for the show, it remains to be seen if Megatron will be upgraded. A new figure of him has not been shown for the Beast Hunters line thus far, however, as noted with our Toy Fair 2013 Transformers Toy Information, 1 out of the 6 voyager figures remains to be seen...

We have updated our Transformers Resources section with all of the new bio data - check them out by opening the links below.

Beast Hunters Legion Blight, Windrazor and Rippersnapper Single Releases?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '13 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The third in our little trifecta of news derived from the updated Transformers.com is this news that the three remaining members of the Abominus combiner group - Blight, Rippersnapper and Windrazor - may also be getting single carded releases. Our evidence suggesting this comes from the "Choose your own adventure" game once again. Inside the in-game database, all five of the Predacons that form Abominus are shown with bios and repackaged weapons from other Legion class toys. The individual bios are unlikely to be shown on the packaging for Abominus, if yesterday's Kre-O Combiner bios are anything to go by together with the recent trend to reducing bios on packaging.

Granted it is not proof positive - but all the signs seem to be pointing to both a single release Abominus and a store exclusive "combiner boxed set" just like in Generation 1. As always, watch this space.

Beast Hunters Deluxe Aree Confirmed, possible Beast Hunters Huffer?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '13 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
On completing the Shockwave's lab "choose your own adventure" game on the newly revamped Transformers.com, you are given a look at the Autobots "gearing up to take down the Predacons". Among the various images shown at the end of this sequence is a look at a Beast Hunters Arcee - complete with bio and tech specs. Arcee is following suit with the rest of the Autobots by donning Mad Max style battle armor on her vehicle mode, giving her a tougher appearance in robot mode.

A second character is also hinted at - Huffer has an entry in the list of Autobots at the end of the sequence. The toy shown is the Power Core Combiners Huffer from 2010, but there is a new bio attached to the listing, suggesting that Huffer may also be getting a toy in the Beast Hunters line.

For those keeping score, that's one more Predacon and two more Autobots for a prospective Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 4 - doubtless there will be a Decepticon in there as well, but for the moment we know nothing of them.

Transformers.com Updates to Beast Hunters - new Predacon Vertebreak Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '13 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers website has updated to its new Beast Hunters theme, and with it comes some rather interesting new material! There is a "choose your own adventure" style game where you jump into the action exploring Shockwave's lab following the "urgent transmission" promo spot, as well as a rather fun Rampage clone where you play as Predaking trashing city blocks. There's also a "beast creator" minigame.

The "choose your own adventure" spot has some fun extras too in the form of character profiles, revealing a new Predacon character. His name is Vertebreak and he is a tiger-striped Lazerback redeco. His bio is as follows:

"The powerful Vertebreak wants nothing more than to smash the Autobots and all who stand with them!"

Other character bios are also revealed as you play the game!

Check this and all the other goodies out at the official Transformers homepage, Transformers.com

Transformers Generations Japan Wave 3 In-Hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '13 at 12:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:

Rumor - Metroplex Redeco into . . . Metrotitan?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '13 at 12:30 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
The excitement from Toy Fair 2013 continues! A careful ear from board member Scaleface catches a discussion between an attendee and a Hasbro representative from a Toy Fair 2013 video (linked below) discussing the possibilities of the recently-announced (and now, highly anticipated) Generations Metroplex. During this discussion (around the 4:45 mark), one such possibility is Metroplex redecoed into - Metrotitan!

You can view the video here: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNTEzMjI5ODA0.html

For those of you unfamiliar with Metrotitan, if you click the resource link in the previous statement, you will discover that Metrotitan is a Japanense exclusive deco of G1 Metroplex as a Destron (Decepticon) from the Japanese series Transformers: Zone. Hasbro certainly has created modern toys with obscure references, such as Generations Sky Shadow. That coupled with the obvious necessity for such a large toy as Generations Metroplex (!) to have a good redeco in order for Hasbro to recoup some of the mold costs as well as the referenced discussion of this news bit, certainly makes this a possibility!

Now, while all of this certainly seems like a very possible reality, we are still posting this as a "rumor", as this is not an "official" confirmation of Metrotitan actually being produced, so take this with a grain of salt, so to speak.

Generations Sandstorm on the Way?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '13 at 12:15 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
A bit of surprising news today, as Generations Sandstorm has been confirmed via a product listing on the Hasbro Live Chat customer service page. Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that a small orange helicopter possibly resembling Sandstorm was on the packaging for Generations Metroplex at Toy Fair, possibly as a retooling of Generations Springer.

(The product numbers for Highbrow and Banzai-Tron on the page are reportedly the same numbers as the Hunt for the Decepticons Voyagers from 2010.)

Be sure to keep it here on TFW2005 as we bring you the latest Transformers news as it happens.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Kre-O site has updated with a trio of documents giving the bios for the Kre-O Micro-Changers Preview Wave, Wave 1 and Combiners Wave 1. The bios are all written in a firmly tongue-in-cheek style, with some highlights including:

Galvatron's Bio - Nothing stands before Galvatron! I am supreme! I am totally awesome! I am the scariest thing ever to come out of the mouth of a weirdly pudgy planet monster! Look upon me and despair!
Spinister's Hobby - Hiding fusion bombs in the Autobot restroom.
Airachnid's Fondest Memory - The time I webbed ARCEE to the floor and let INSECTICON tickle her.
Dirge's Favorite Childhood Pet - I had a pet toucan, but it ran away.
Springer - Yeah, I could turn into a car, too. I just don’t feel like it.
Devastator's Favorite TV Show - The one with the guys who blow stuff up all the time.

That's just a taste - head on over to the Kre-O official site to check out the rest!
