Posted by News Fetcher on January 24 '13 at 12:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters toyline is now a very familiar name among the Transformers Fans. It has come a long way since being just a trademark at USPTO.

We’ve been hearing and seeing quite a lot of Toys from the upcoming 3rd Season of Transformers: Prime. But what about Role Play Accessories?

2005 Boards Member hardreturn is bringing us something very cool from Walmart; Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime Mask.

Priced at US$ 14.92 this new Optimus Prime Mask features a pull-down visor and it appears as though it has replaced his regular Mouthplate. It’s hard to tell at the moment, but again… the color Green is emphasized.

You can take a good look at the new Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime Mask by clicking on the Image attached with this news post.

Prime Beast Hunters Wave 2 Voyager Assortment Confirmed, Pre-Orders Popping Up
Posted by News Fetcher on January 23 '13 at 07:30 AM
By Tim Formas from TFW2005:
Several days ago, we first reported that Shockwave would be the new release featured in Wave 2 of the Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Voyager Assortment. This was based off of a listing in Previews.

Courtesy of TFW2005 sponsor BigBadToyStore, the assortment breakdown has been revealed on their pre-order page for the assortment. For those worried that Hasbro would shortpack Shockwave and make him impossible to find, worry not! Shockwave will come two to a case, with one each of Optimus Prime and Predaking carrying over from Wave 1.

The pre-orders for the various Voyager Wave 2 collection currently carry a February release date.

Takara-Tomy Calendar features Transformers GT
Posted by News Fetcher on January 23 '13 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toy Hobby has shared some images of a little promotional calendar that Takara-Tomy has released. It features the first two Transformers GT releases on the calendar with GT Prime featured for June-July and GT Saber featured for August-September. GT Saber's page even features his motto "Let's say go!" (which makes this writer think that GT Prime's must say "Roll Out!" in Japanese)

The calendar also gives the names of the Race Queen figures who are coming with the toys - Misaki comes with GT Prime and Anna comes with GT Saber. To top it all off, there's some new artwork on the calendar pages.

Prime Arms Micron Darkest Megatron / Final Battle Megatron and Jet Vehicon General Official Pictures
Posted by News Fetcher on January 23 '13 at 12:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Official images of the Transformers Prime Arms Micron series Darkest Megatron aka Final Battle Megatron and Jet Vehicon General have been posted on Amazon Japan. The new images reveal that Jet Vehicon General is as speculated the white "elite" Jet Vehicon type who was under Starscream's command during the final battle of the episode Darkest Hour. Darkest / Final Battle Megatron is the Voyager as expected, primarily painted the same as the US mainline release, but with the grave-robbed right arm of a Prime incorporated as a series of paint apps (or a sticker...?) on the arm. He comes with the three Dark Matter Caliber Arms Microns redeone in darker plastics and with purple stickers to resemble the Dark Star Saber.

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
UK Toy Fair 2013 started today and other Toy Fairs (including the famous New York Toy Fair 2013) are to happen across the globe soon. Hong Kong Toy Fair 2013 was recently concluded at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Though the presence of Hasbro was not heard, Transformers did make an appearance. Calibre toy company was there with their Transformers Movie Resin Statues. Thanks to You Tube page Atamaiidotcom, we now have with us, footage from the Toy Fair floor.

Movie Optimus Prime Resin Statue is 20 inches tall, posable with swappable hands and comes with Energon Swords and Axe.

Movie Bumblebee Resin Statue is 14 inches tall, posable, scaled to Optimus Prime and also with swappable hands and weapons with a Battle Mask.

The statues are Asian Exclusives with Optimus Prime going for US$ 1699 and Bumblebee for US$ 1399. Pretty expensive since the toys are "Limited Edition".

Courtesy of ACToys, we have some in hand images of the incoming next Masterpiece release from Takara Tomy. MP-13 Soundwave is shown here in package, in robot mode and in cassette player mode. All from various angles. The figures release date is for the 26th. So, for all of those that preordered, start keeping an eye on your mailboxes shortly after that!
