Transformers Behind the Secrets of Transformers TV Special in Japan
Posted by News Fetcher on August 10 '12 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A recent TV special in Japan went behind the scenes at Takara-Tomy, showing the place where the magic happens - the offices of the Takara-Tomy Transformers design team. As well as showing the offices, viewers were treated to a view of the desk of Transformers Masterpiece series designer, "Mr Starscream" Shogo Hasui. On his desk you can see a quartet of Masterpieces - Masterpiece Lambor (Sideswipe) test shot alongside the released Starscream and Convoy (MP11 and MP10 respectively) and an Ultra Magnus proof-of-concept custom, built from a Generation 1 Ultra Magnus trailer and then attached to an MP10 Convoy. It is in no way an indication that a Masterpiece Ultra Magnus is in our future - but it is a good indication that if a few things line up, then we just might see one. After all, it is a good sign that the lead designer for the Masterpiece series happens to have this proof of concept on his desk, no?

Generations Voyager Class Brawn New Image
Posted by News Fetcher on August 09 '12 at 07:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is a look at the Transformers Generations Brawn from the Asia Exclusive Transformers Generations, or GDO, assortments. Unlike the other three in the assortment (Megatron, Powerdive and Protectobot Hot Spot) Brawn here looks set to remain as an Asia Exclusive, as when the Toys R Us China Import assortment of Voyagers was shown at the San Diego Comic Con, Brawn alone was conspicuously absent. And while we proceeded to see in-case and official pictures of the other three, Brawn was nowhere to be seen.

What we have here for you is a picture of Brawn from the cross-sell of the Protectobot Hot Spot packaging, which we believe is the clearest look we have had at this First Edition Bulkhead remold to date. The picture shows that Brawn will get a Generation 1 inspired head, like the Deluxe Class Cliffjumper, and a fair bit of gold / orange detailing to go with the deco. The new head and deco definitely recalls the style of the original Brawn, and dare we say that the new head does not look completely out of place on the body as originally feared.

TFW Transformers Prime Jet Vehicon (Japan Exclusive) Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '12 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next gallery update, we have a look at the other July release in the Japanese Transformers Prime line, the Jet Vehicon! The Jet Vehicon is a "reshell" of the regular Vehicon - in other words, it takes the basic robot but changes out the car vehicle panels for flight mode ones. It's a nice variation on the regular Vehicon, and together with the First Edition which was a different design completely you have a cool (if a little pricey) way to assemble a squad of three Vehicons without any two being the same. This one is another in a growing number of releases that seem to be unlikely to see a US release at this time.

Check out our full gallery by opening the link below - and give some big thanks to 2005 Boards Photo Staff member SydneyY for providing these photos for us!

Transformers Redecos of Energon Omega Supreme and Optimus Prime in 2013?
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '12 at 10:15 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Thanks to a thread on ACTOYS, we have ourselves a first look at two new redecos coming to the Asian Exclusive Generations (Or as it's being referred to via retailers, "GDO") toyline, and the mold choices might surprise you as we're getting new redecos of Energon Omega Supreme and Optimus Prime.

It is unknown what color schemes these two toys will be in, but do take note both of these toys are able to be combined together into a "Optimus Supreme" mode. Could we possibly be seeing a unified color scheme? What about G1 accurate color schemes for both toys? Regardless, feel free to speculate away in the discussion thread by hitting the discussion link below!

Ford Australia And High Moon Studios To Customize An Aussie Transformers Ford Falcon
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '12 at 09:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
When things aren’t good for the Ford Falcon… who you gonna call? Transformers! Yep indeed, here’s a chance for you to turn a Ford Falcon to a Cybertronian.

Ford Australia and High Moon Studios are joining together to get their fans to customize the Ford Falcon. According to the official Facebook page of Ford Australia:

“To celebrate the launch of the new video game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Ford and Activision are giving you the chance to create an Aussie Transformers Ford Falcon. Over the next four days we’ll run polls inviting you (our fans) to vote on a selection of characteristics, which will make up our Falcon Transformers car.”

The first poll ask the fans, should a Ford Falcon be a Transformer would it be an Autobot or a Decepticon?

Your votes will shape the final art created by High Moon's own art team. And the Ford Falcon will get customized according to the preferences getting the most votes.

Ford Falcon sales are going down these days, but hopefully this promotional campaign will do the trick.

You can read an article on this news and visit Ford Australia Official Facebook Page to vote.

TFW Generations Springer Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '12 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
After a brief break we are back with the fourth of the four new Deluxe Class toys in the Asia Exclusive Generations Deluxe Assortment. Last but by no means least, we have an advance look at this homage to Generation 1 Springer, who will be coming to Toys R Us later this Fall as a part of the "China Import" exclusive assortment.

Springer here is a very cool reuse of the Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk mold. He features a new head which is modeled on his more recent appearances in the IDW comics. He's also got a new sword accessory which complements his look nicely. The lanky build of the mold really screams "Springer" to me, and while the mold's movie-line origins means this one is not for everyone, my personal feeling is this is an ideal addition to a Classics collection. The design fits in well with the likes of Drift and Wreck-Gar and looks absolutely fantastic in helicopter mode. He will be one worth seeking out once his assortment makes it to the US, if you have not already got him on import.
