TFW Generations Fall of Cybertron Grimlock Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on January 05 '13 at 06:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We'll kick off our 2013 gallery updates with a new toy of a character who is very dear to me - Grimlock! Fall of Cybertron Grimlock is another one of those toys who occupies a happy medium between lines, blending with Classics, Fall of Cybertron or even Prime with varying degrees of success, and beyond all that, he's just plain awesome. He's tall in robot mode and imposing in dinosaur mode, with a gimmick that makes sense for the character and that does not get in the way of the rest of the toy's operation. Excellent poseability in robot mode is the icing on the cake. Some fans were disappointed that the original Classics Grimlock was, in their eyes, not a worthy update to Grimlock, well, thanks to Fall of Cybertron we now have a Grimlock who is a lot closer to the Generation 1 original, and nice and big to go with it.

What we have for you here is a nice extensive gallery showcasing Grimlock's dinosaur and robot modes, along with comparisons with previous Grimlocks and a selection of images showing how Grimlock fits in with other Fall of Cybertron toys, with other Classics series characters, and with Transformers Prime characters too, given that this version of Grimlock is presently playing a leading role in the Transformers Prime continuity "Rage of the Dinobots" comic.

Year of the Snake Optimus Prime and Omega Supreme in Box
Posted by News Fetcher on January 05 '13 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member uranusdd has shared with us a look at the Transformers Platinum Edition Year of the Snake Energon Optimus Prime and Omega Supreme in their packaging. The packaging truly lives up to the "premium" billing these toys have received, with a nice red backdrop and gold foil effect combined with nice snake effects in traditional Chinese style in the shape of the Autobot sigil - and that is just the backdrop to the character art.

Check out the in-package image, attached to this story.

Interview with Jason Jensen - Transformers Generation 1 Season 5's Tommy Kennedy
Posted by News Fetcher on January 05 '13 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
One of the great mysteries of the Transformers fandom, up until now, was what happened to Jason Jansen, the child actor who played Tommy Kennedy in the little-known fifth season of Transformers Generation 1 - the rerun season which introduced each episode with bridge segments featuring Jason Jansen as Tommy Kennedy interacting with an animatronic Powermaster Optimus Prime.

That mystery has finally been opened up, as Jason Jansen - or rather, Jason Jankowski, as Jason Jansen was his stage name - has got in touch with davidaschulz of the Digest my Brain blog and given a rare interview, shedding some light on the fifth season of Transformers Generation 1 - how he got into working on Transformers, what the experience was like, and even some on-set stories.

Check out the full interview on Digest my Brain here.

TFCC 2013 Comic is Beast Wars Shattered Glass
Posted by News Fetcher on January 04 '13 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a "beast" update of a different nature today. In 2013 the Transformers Collectors Club is introducing us to Beast Wars Shattered Glass - a new team of Maximals featuring some familiar faces and led by Ultra Mammoth (a reformatted Ultra Magnus) are up against tough odds. The story features the Autobot team led by Ultra Magnus on the Hyperion, previously seen in the Botcon 2007 Games of Deception comic. Notable Transformers fan Ben Yee had a hand in creating the story and calls it "a bit off-beat, but fun".

Visit the Transformers Facebook page to check out the single page preview of the 2013 Transformers Collectors Club comic. And visit the Transformers Collectors Club homepage to find out how to sign up for the club to get the comic as well as the membership exclusive pre-Beast Wars Depth Charge figure and that Botcon discount.

Transformers Bot Shots Dragon Track Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on January 04 '13 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A new item revealed today by way of a listing on Robot Kingdom is the Bot Shots Dragon Track set. It's not entirely clear what is going on with this set - though the appearance of a dragon on the box suggests the set is somehow connected to the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters theme. The set comes with a pair of Bot Shots - an all-new mold Optimus Prime and a second (Decepticon?) Bot Shot who looks like a purple dragon or jet. The set also includes two launchers and a "spinning dragon pit".

We know from the San Diego Comic Con 2012 that the Bot Shots line is diversifying with new kinds of Bot Shots including Flip Shots and Spin Shots. Could this track set be another part of the diversification of this sub-series?

Third party group FansToys has released new prototype photos of their Generation 1 Shockwave homage, Quake Wave.

Transformers Movie Series Asia Exclusive Leader Brawl First Image
Posted by News Fetcher on January 02 '13 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Asia Facebook page has followed up on their previous tease of a new release in the Asia Premium Series of Movie toys with a picture confirming the APS-2 will be a redeco of Leader Class Decepticon Brawl. The picture though is a total tease using inverted colors, preventing anyone from getting a proper look at the toy.

Fear not though, because through the magic of Photoshop, Singapore Transformers Fan Group Planet Iacon have removed most of the photoshopping to reveal what this new Leader Brawl might actually look like. As with the Striker Optimus Prime, this Leader Brawl takes the 2007 Leader mold and gives it a full-on Premium Series redeco.

If official, non-photoshop tease images are released by Transformers Asia look vastly different to this we will update you here. For now, enjoy this first look at Decepticon Brawl's premium deco.

High Quality Transformers: Prime Season 3 - Beast Hunters NYCC 2012 Preview Clip
Posted by News Fetcher on January 01 '13 at 08:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
2013 just arrived and this year Transformers fans can enjoy Transformers: Prime Season 3 - Beast Hunters on Hasbro-Discovery Hub.

Back in last October at the New York Comic Con 2012, we saw for the first time what exactly Beast Hunters is. Before that, we’ve only known it through a mysterious new trademark filed by Hasbro, which TFW2005 revealed for the first time. At NYCC 2012 we were treated to a small clip from the 3rd Season. However, it was not very clear and the camera was all shaky.

You Tube user, TransEpisodes3 has recently uploaded a 720p HD version of the same clip from the show. You can enjoy it below:



Transformers: Prime is rumored to return this Spring.

2005 Boards member uranusdd has shared with us a look at a new third party accessory set. This set is from a group called Dream Works (no, not that Dreamworks) and it's an upgrade for First Edition Transformers Prime Bulkhead. Among the numerous features of the set are optional double arm cannons - as seen on the show - plus they can combine with other parts in the set to form an approximation of the Forge of Solus Prime. Check out the pictures, attached to this story.

Preorders have now gone up for a hugely anticipated release of 2013 - Terminus Hexatron, the not-Sixshot, from Mastermind Creations. Done in Mastermind's unique high-detail style Terminus Hexatron is a big robot boasting all six alternate modes of the original Sixshot (and yeah, probably the secret Wingwolf mode as well, Ultra Magnus beware).

Prime Arms Micron December 2012 Papercraft Trailer Exclusive
Posted by News Fetcher on December 31 '12 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Autobase Aiichi reports that the latest Transformers Prime Arms Micron series store campaign special will be a papercraft trailer intended for Ultra Magnus. Starting today, 31 December, participating Edion stores will be giving out the papercraft trailers with a purchase of 3'000 yen or more on Transformers Prime merchandise.

However, Autobase Aiichi notes that unlike the picture shown in the Edion catalog (at left) the distributed material was the same as the trailer released for Arms Master Optimus Prime. The catalog was published before the final confirmation of the goods was received.

In other words, do not believe all that is reported - all that is being released is another papercraft Optimus Prime trailer, and not an Ultra Magnus trailer.
