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.

Kre-O Microchangers Bios added to the Official Kre-O site
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '13 at 11:30 AM
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!

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters "Final Chapter" of Prime; new series coming late 2014
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '13 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our fellow fans over at the Allspark get the credit for digging up this bit of news. The latest edition of Kidscreen magazine contains some news on Transformers Prime Beast Hunters including the fate of Transformers Prime itself. The article puts forward that Prime season 3, Beast Hunters, will now only contain 13 episodes and it will mark the final chapter of the Transformers Prime series.

That being said, the article goes on to say that a "new iteration of the animated TV series" is due in late 2014, and while there is no word on what this new series might be, chances are it will be set in the Aligned Continuity. With all the effort Hasbro has put into creating this cohesive continuity for Transformers - a continuity presently covering two novels, two prequel video games, the upcoming MMOG "Transformers Universe", three comic book miniseries, 65 episodes and a TV movie - it is unlikely that the Aligned Continuity is going away so soon.

Toy Fair 2013 has come and gone for us here at TFW2005.com, and boy was it crazy.

That being said, we've started to go through our image sets from the weekend, are picking out the best ones and giving them a little extra love. Attached to the story are some of the hottest shots from the show. Not necessarily the hottest as in new & never seen - just some good looking pictures in their own right. To see them all - read on!

Just when you thought you'd seen it all after Toy Fair this weekend, ACToys drops another bombshell on us - there's a little bit of Beast Wars coming to the Transformers Generations line. Beast Wars Megatron, the suave arch-villain masterfully voiced by David Kaye (yessss) is getting an all-new Voyager class toy in the Generations line. He's a reuse of the excellent Grimlock mold sporting a new head.

It's an awesome tribute to a fan favorite character - check out the pictures of this unpainted mold-test showing off the new head by visiting the link above or our mirror attached to this story.

TOY FAIR 2013 News Coverage Round Up - Day 2

Day 2 of Toy Fair 2013 has come to and end and wow, what a day it was! We started our day with a wide assortment of upcoming Lego Product, including new Lego Star Wars, Chima and City sets. We then transitioned in new Dragon Ball Z and Kotobukiya Images. Bandai nevers disappoint!

Toy Fair then kicked in to high gear as we were created by images of DC's Man of Steel, Arkham City, Injustice Gods Among Us and Batman Hush figures.

One of the highlights of the show was the Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull Playset. Of course, there were also figures, but there's also a ton of other great stuff to be had this year. So much, in fact, that you'll have to join me after the jump for all the links, as there were almost 100 unique stories to report on today!

Toy Fair 2013 Transformers Toy Information - Hasbro Press Releases Confirm More Upcoming Releases
Posted by News Fetcher on February 10 '13 at 09:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have received a selection of press releases from Hasbro which, alongside a lot of information we already knew, tease at a whole bunch of other upcoming releases. These upcoming releases include:

Generations Legends Class Megatron and Starscream

Construct Bots Beast Hunters Two Pack - Optimus Prime VS Predaking

Rescue Bots Figure Two-Packs Wave 2 - Blades with Dr Morocco and Boulder with Doc Greene. Figures of Tim Curry and Levar Burton? Yes please!

Rescue Bots Beam Bots Game. The main game retails for $49.99 and comes with Optimus Prime, figure packs retail for $6.99 and add Bumblebee, Boulder, Chase, Heatwave and Blades into the mix. It consists of putting the figure into a "portal" and they are then unlocked to play as in the game. Think Skylanders, but with Transformers Rescue Bots.

The press release for Beast Hunters also gives an indication for the numbers of releases in the Beast Hunters line. If this information is correct, we've seen most of what this line has to offer already...

Beast Hunters Deluxe Class - 16 characters in the assortment (we have seen 11)
Beast Hunters Voyager Class - 6 characters in the assortment (we have seen 5)
Beast Hunters Cyberverse Legion Class - 11 figures to collect (we have seen 7)
Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commander Class - 9 figures to collect (we have seen 7)
Beast Hunters Cyberverse Vehicle Assortment - 3 to collect (we have seen 2)

Of course, do not take this as gospel; plans change and if Beast Hunters is successful, there might be more toys coming down the pipeline. This also does not take into account exclusive releases such as the Abominus combiner set and the electronic Beast Fire Predaking is also not mentioned. It probably also refers only to what Hasbro has lined up for 2013; there could be more toys planned for 2014 outside the scope of this press release.
