Generations Asia Exclusive Decepticon Deluxe Seeker Elite Set (Coneheads!)
Posted by News Fetcher on October 25 '12 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Asia has updated with details of the second of the two giftsets of Decepticon seekers which are going to be exclusive to the Asian / Chinese market. The first set was the Seeker Set Ace, containing the original trio of Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker - this second set confirmed today will be the Seeker Set Elite and it will contain redecos of Classics versions of the other three Seekers - Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. With this set for the first time since 1985 all six members of the Decepticon airforce are collected in a single line with a single consistent aesthetic and deco style! However the rub is these like the Seeker Set Ace are China exclusive so they will command a higher price on the secondary market. They are due for a release in December.

Of interest also is that on the announcement the set name is given as "Deluxe Seeker Set Elite" in English, but "Dogfight Set" in Japanese.

Mark Wahlberg In Talks for Transformers 4?

By ORIO from TFW2005:
Feel it! Feel it! Comingsoon.net has posted an article stating that actor Mark Wahlberg (Ted, The Happening, The Other Guys) has been in talks with Transformers 4 director Michael Bay about possibly starring in the next installment of our beloved franchise. The article goes onto state this as a distinct possibility, as the two have just come off working together on the upcoming film Pain and Gain. Director Michael Bay was quick to reply to this news, posting on his website: "The Mark Wahlberg T4 rumor is just a rumor. Mark and I are talking about another film project". Bay is quick to not confirm or deny the rumor.

Interesting side not to this story; Mark sings Stan Bush's power rock song from the 1986 Transformers film, "You Got The Touch" in 1997's Boogie Nights.

Transformers Prime Arms Micron Capsule Toys Getting Blind Packed UK Release?
Posted by News Fetcher on October 23 '12 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is an oddity for you - the cool Transformers Prime Arms Micron Capsule Toys series just might be seeing them light of day outside of Japan. A recent catalog update (PDF link) for UK retailer Esdevium Games - distributor of hobby products including board games, collectible card games and other goodies - included on its final page under toys and collectibles a listing for "Transformers Figure Packet", showing a picture of the Arms Micron capsule toy Optimus Prime and a previously unseen blindbag packaging featuring the Transformers Prime logo and pictures of the six toys in the first assortment of Transformers Prime Capsule Toys.

This would seem to indicate that at the very least the UK might be getting the first series of Arms Micron Capsule Toys at retail, marking the first release of these toys outside of Japan. However, Hasbro UK has stated they have no plans to release these items, creating some confusion. Although if you read into the product codes, you can see the first three letters on the page correspond to the manufacturer (TOP = Topps, for example). These are listed as TOM - possible shorthand for Tomy? Stranger things have happened - ultimately until we have a confirmed purchase at retail in the UK or elsewhere, this is only a possible release, but it seems likely given the popularity of blind-packed impulse buy items at the checkouts in UK supermarkets.

It's time for the hunt to begin again for Canadian Transformers fans! Thanks to TFW2005 and Cybertron.CA boards member Cheers Ian, we now have a sighting of Fall of Cybertron/Generations Wave 2 Deluxes in Canada! This wave, which includes the retail release of the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons, was sighted at a Walmart in Ontario. Collecting all five of the Combaticons allows you to BUILD GIANT ROBOT (As per the packaging's command) to form Bruticus.
