Universal Orlando Transformers: The Ride Supply Vault Is Now Open
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 01:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Good friend of TFW2005, Ricky Brigante of Inside The Magic dropped by to let us in on the news that Transformers: The Ride Supply Vault at Universal Orlando is now officially open.

At the Supply Vault, Transformers fans can purchase all sorts of neat stuff including a small replica of the Allspark from Movie 1.

Also, you might meet Optimus Prime and Bumblebee walk-around characters; who entertain the public.

"Yesterday the large metal doors opened to the ride’s store, dubbed the “Supply Vault,” revealing hundreds of Transformers items now for sale in the park, including quite a few Universal Studios exclusives. And with the opening of the store, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee also emerged, meeting Universal Orlando day guests - and Optimus was even talking."

"A few of the more unique items are a voice changer, All Spark projector, and plenty of T-shirts, along with an assortment of Transformers toys, including Evac, a main character developed for the ride."




You can visit Inside The Magic for more information and lots of images.

Transformers Go G04 Gaidora is a Lazerback Redeco
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have some more information to pass along now regarding the new Transformers Go! line - specifically a little more information on the G04 Gaidora. As speculated, the new information that has come to light seems to confirm that Gaidora will be a redeco of Beast Hunters Lazerback. The listing, from Singapore site "The Falcon's Hanger", also suggests there will be a metallic deco.

The site also corroborates earlier reports that G01 through G03 (the three "Samurai" characters) will be combiners, capable of merging in three different forms. The information also suggests that G01 Kenzan Samurai will feature some level of light and sound features and will be priced more expensive than the others (about SG $30 more), but once again, no images are provided.

Generations Scamper Image
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Back at Toy Fair 2013 we reported that the Generations Titan Class Metroplex would be accompanied by a smaller robot, based on his partner Scamper from the original Generation 1 Metroplex. Pictures of Scamper have been a well-kept secret, but as 2005 Boards member GaussGunner has highlighted, they were out there. A video of Toy Fair 2013 by Atamaiidotcom shows the box of Metroplex, including a brief "blink and you'll miss it" of Scamper on the side. Scamper in this new version remains the high-tech futuristic black car, except now he has a bit more color to him than he did back in Generation 1. He's marketed as a "Legends" class figure, so he is potentially either a Cyberverse Legion or Commander in size.

Stay tuned to TFW for more news and eventually better images!

Transformers Prime Voyager Skyquake Released in the UK
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Let it never be said that the UK always misses out on the Transformers toylines - while it is true we get shortchanged most of the time on anything past about wave 3, once in a while there is a turn up for the books, and today is one of those days, because Transformers Prime Voyager Skyquake has been sighted in UK Toys R Us stores up and down the land. Skyquake was the last of the toyline to have not been released in the UK in some shape or form - with this the entire Transformers Prime toyline has made it to these shores. Skyquake is in US packaging complete with "The Hub" adverts, indicating this is import stock rather than Hasbro UK domestic releases. It follows the very limited release of Skyquake through Toys R Us in the US.

Josh Duhamel To Make Cameo Appearance In Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on March 09 '13 at 07:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
According to a post at The Hollywood Reporter, Director Michael Bay has requested actor Josh Duhamel's presence at Transformers 4 in a Cameo Appearance.

Mr. Duhamel said...

"[Michael] said he wants to put me in it someplace. I don’t know if he was just saying that because he had me on the phone and he felt obligated or what, but, you know what? I got to do three of those. It changed my career, it changed my life getting to be a part of something that big, so I’m grateful for even doing the first three of them."

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Not to be left out, we also have a couple of new images of the so far Japan-only Generations Skywarp to share with you. This staight-up redeco of Fall of Cybertron Starscream is a bit more on the purple end of the spectrum than most Skywarps - he has an interesting deco which is none the less still the epitome of "evil Decepticon".

Amazon Japan has also posted some high-res images of the Transformers GT Megatron and his Race Queen partner Noa. GT Megatron is looking sharp in silver, and you can check out his new head in these images as well for extra benefit. The one thing we don't get to see much of is Megatron's cannon - it's only present in the one image, with little insight into just how it is going to work. Regardless, check out the images attached to this story.

Transformers 4 Filming To Start Today?
Posted by News Fetcher on March 08 '13 at 11:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Did Transformers 4 Principal Photography began secretly?

According to On Location Vacations (the very site which kept the Transformers fans informed of filming locations last time for Transformers: Dark of the Moon) it seems as though “Something’s” happening over at Raleigh Studios in Playa Vista, CA.

This could very well be Pre-Production for the movie as well and therefore we must wait till an Official Source confirms it.

Transformers Go! G-01 - G-04 revealed, includes a new Combiner?
Posted by News Fetcher on March 08 '13 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have been hearing a bit about how Beast Hunters will be released in Japan as Transformers Go! with releases starting from G11 Hunter Optimus Prime (see previous news story, scan from that story at left). The question that this raised with many of us is "why G-11? Where is G01 through G10?"

Well, it seems online retailer Kapow Toys has posted a partial answer. Listings have been added for G-01 through G-04, and by all indications, these are new toys (G-04 we suspect may be an existing Predacon release since they are suspiciously absent from the Japanese listings so far with the exception of Predaking).

The listings are:

G01 Kenzan Samurai, a police car
G02 Jinbu Samurai, a jet
G03 Ganoh Samurai, a fire engine
G04 Gaidora

All four are set for a release in June. Details attached to G01 through G03 indicates that they can combine into three different larger robots - presumably this means that one of them forms the main robot and the remaining two the limbs. Gaidora we assume might be a Predacon, based on the fact that the name has a lot in common with a kaiju from Ultraman or Godzilla / Gojira.

As for what these toys are - well friends, right now there are no pictures, so your guess is as good as ours. The fact that they are combiners means they aren't anything we have seen so far. Perhaps these might be somehow connected to the reported cartoon series being produced for China - or perhaps they are more new Japan-only toys.

Additional Images of Masterpiece Prowl and Bluestreak
Posted by News Fetcher on March 08 '13 at 12:45 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
A pair of images have surfaced showcasing the recently revealed Masterpiece 17 Prowl and Masterpiece 18 Bluestreak. The first image, tweeted by Takara designer Shogo Hasui, shows the two figures side by side in robot mode. This image makes it even easier to compare the differences between the two figures. The second image, courtesy of Cybergundam blog, actually shows several smaller images. While a small and grainy, these images show comparisons to MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP-12 Sideswipe.

By ORIO from TFW2005:
A pair of images have surfaced showcasing the recently revealed Masterpiece 17 Prowl and Masterpiece 18 Bluestreak. The first image, tweeted by Takara designer Shogo Hasui, shows the two figures side by side in robot mode. This image makes it even easier to compare the differences between the two figures. The second image, courtesy of Cybergundam blog, actually shows several smaller images. While a small and grainy, these images show comparisons to MP-10 Optimus Prime and MP-12 Sideswipe.

New Transformers SKUs from Toys R Us Canada
Posted by News Fetcher on March 07 '13 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toys R Us Canada have recently updated their computer system and added some new SKUs into the mix. These listings reveal a few items of interest, namely the Canadian retail price for Masterpiece Soundwave and Masterpiece Acid Storm. Masterpiece Soundwave is priced at $119.99 CAD, a steal considering he includes the full complement of five cassettes. Acid Storm is priced at $69.99 CAD.

The listings also confirm that Platinum Series Prime Ultra Magnus will be released at Canadian retail through Toys R Us, he will run to $69.99 CAD as well. The Titan Class Metroplex is in the system too, his retail price is given as $99.99 CAD.

Lastly there are two more listings, which are given as "Prime". The first is "Prime Ultimate Dragon", potentially the Ultimate Class version of Beast Hunters Predaking. This confirms he is getting released in Canada through Toys R Us, he's been mooted as a Target exclusive in the US. His price is $59.99 CAD. The listings are capped off with an entry for a $29.99 CAD 16 inch figure from the Transformers Prime line. The price is consistent with the asking price for a Weaponizer or Optimus Maximus, but neither one of them matches the height listed. It could be the new "Ultimate" Beast Hunter Optimus Prime, though the asking price seems less than expected, particularly given the cost of the Predaking.

The full listings of the SKUs follows below:

Masterpiece Soundwave SKU043130 - $119.99
Masterpiece Acid Storm SKU043128 - $69.99
Generations Titan Metroplex SKU043106 - $99.99
Prime Plat. Ed Ultra Magnus SKU038196 - $69.99
Prime Ultimate Dragon SKU043112 - $59.99
Prime 16'' Figure SKU038183 - $29.99
