David Bollman Hired For Transformers: Age Of Extinction
Posted by News Fetcher on September 08 '13 at 08:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Wildlife artist David Bollman of Southpaw Studio in Sterling Heights recently finished work on the filming of Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

Mr. Bollman had this to say:

"We built a set downtown, but mainly I did a lot of finish painting," he said. "I painted specific props. And even some of the really cool props and weapons in the movie."

Bollman said much of his work during the filming in downtown Detroit in July was on various cars in the movie.

"I did Chinese lettering on the cars; hand lettering; vinyl graphics; and of course we made everything look like it's been through the mud," Bollman said. "In specific settings, the areas are dirt and muddy."

Bollman said he conducted "a lot of research to get stuff very accurate. There is always something that goes into making things look authentic and real," he said. "The director (Michael Bay) loves to have an explosion, so there's a lot of action in this movie.

"Mark Wahlberg is just dynamite," Bollman noted about the star in the movie. "He's going to be a phenomenal asset to the movie."

Mr. David Bollman previously worked for Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.

Amazon has also added more listings to its site, this time for the fifth assortment of Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commanders, Unicron Megatron and Ultra Magnus.

Ultra Magnus

TFW's Generations Thundercracker Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on September 08 '13 at 02:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The second new release in the most recent assortment of IDW Deluxe Class Transformers is a Fall of Cybertron version of Thundercracker. Depicting the Decepticon in his Cybertronian form, this is a nice and vibrant recolor of the earlier Fall of Cybertron Starscream toy, and with a Skywarp on the horizon (or already out if you picked up the Takara-Tomy release) he builds up the Seeker squadron as seen in Transformers War for Cybertron.

Thundercracker is the fourth new deco on this mold, and it once again brings out the best of the toy. The blue is a particularly nice shade which is roughly the same tint as the original Thundercracker toy from the 1980s and the 2007 Botcon exclusive, so he looks particularly cool stood with either of those. The mold itself is as always excellent with a good amount of poseability, and it does not seem to be showing any wear for being the fourth outing of the mold. The two criticisms that might be levelled at the toy is that the chaingun barrels are entirely unpainted blue plastic - on balance, probably a tradeoff for all the paint on the robot. The other point of criticism is that the silver paint on the back of the jet / robot's backpack seems to chip very easily. These do not detract though from a sharp-looking, good and fun toy.

Transformers Generations Swerve, Cosmos, Rhinox and Doubledealer Bios
Posted by News Fetcher on September 08 '13 at 01:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yet more news courtesy of Amazon.com! Amazon have updated their listings for several upcoming Generations toys with the text of the character's bios. These bios cover the Legends Class Swerve with Flanker and Cosmos with Payload as well as Voyager Class Rhinox and Doubledealer. There's a good mix of homaging original bios, cartoons, and IDW comics with these bios - check them out below.

Also Beast Wars fans will be pleased to note - Rhinox's Gatling Guns of Doom is now canonical with his bio!

Swerve with Flanker

Riding with Swerve is a terrifying experience. The Autobot technician lives up to his name. His attention span is so short that he finds even exit ramps boring, which more often than not results in him drifting, uncaring, into oncoming traffic. So it's good he's partnered up with Flanker. The little jet is almost compulsive about scanning everything around him for Deception activity. And when his shouted warnings don't make an impression on Swerve, his impenetrable force field does a good job of protecting the other vehicles on the road.

Cosmos with Payload

You may never meet a pair that is more eager to please than Autobot Cosmos and Payload. They're both proud of their ability to fly into space, and eager to use it to benefit the Autobot cause. It's a lonely life in orbit, but they both make up for it by performing some of the most awesome daredevil space stunts anyone has ever heard of. It's just too bad there's no one else up there to see them.

Rhinox

Transformers Classified the Complete Mission
Posted by News Fetcher on September 08 '13 at 01:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Amazon has added a new listing for another Transformers Classified young readers novel. This one is titled "The Complete Mission", which would make you think it is going to be an omnibus edition of the three Transformers Classified books so far, however the price and page count are about the same as the previous novels, which leads one to conclude it's a new book - or Amazon has the details wrong.

Watch this space for more updates.

Dustin James Leighton Lands A Voice Over Spot In Another Transformers Project
Posted by News Fetcher on September 06 '13 at 08:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
It seems as though talented voice actor Dustin James Leighton has landed another role on a Transformers project. Currently, he is the voice of Evac on Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios Theme Park.

Mr. Leighton made this announcement via Twitter:

"Oh boy, NEW #transformers script sitting on my desk. Just printed it out! #Voiceover #MWOV"

When asked whether he would reprise his role as Evac, he was quick to reply with a no.

Remember folks, the voice role may not be for the upcoming movie; Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

So, who do you think Dustin James Leighton will lend his voice to? And to what; TF4? A new Ride? The next Animated Series? Or something else entirely?

Tranformers Prime Predacon's Rising Target Focal Fixture
Posted by News Fetcher on September 06 '13 at 08:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
It's been awhile since we've seen a brick and mortar retail store make a big deal about our favorite Robot's in Disguise. Thankfully, Target has heeded the call! This newsie came across the brand new Predacon's Rising focal fixture showing up in Target stores. No doubt, these are starting to pop up in Target's to help promote not only Target's exclusive Predacon's Rising exclusive toys, but also the earlier reported "Dawn of The Beast" Target exclusive DVD. As you can see from the picture, the focal feature is a bit shy on product, but everything currently being offered is displayed on one side or another; Predacon Rising Exclusives on the front, Generations and Construct-Bots on one side and the other side (not-shown) featuring Prime Beast Hunters and Rescue Bots. Hopefully, this means more new toys are being shipped to stores to fill the feature and us fans can empty our wallets in a prompt fashion.

This fixture will most likely stay up for the rest of September to help coincide with the release of the Predacon's Rising Blu-Ray/DVD release on October 8th. Check out the pic after the break to discuss!

Interview with Kelsey Grammer on Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on September 06 '13 at 07:30 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Kelsey Grammer sat down with Empire and had a couple things to say about Transformers 4. Check the blurbs below for some minor insight to his character Harold Attinger.
Quote:
"Malevolent" is the word Grammer uses to describe his big bad, Harold Attinger.

"He’s a no-nonsense guy,"[/B] he told Empire.
[B] "He’s lived his life in the shadows for 30 years in the service of his country, and he likes to be unremarkable yet very efficient."

What of his first collaboration with the ringmaster?

"I don’t know if Michael has seen Frasier," laughed Grammer. "He’s been very respectful and funny. He’s a terrific guy and quite a filmmaker. He just said to me the other day, 'You’re Kelsey Grammer - you can do whatever you want to do.' So I guess he at least has some acquaintance with my work."

So what would Frasier Crane make of all the Bayhem?

"Well, you know what? I think he might find it offensive in some ways,
but there was always a bit of Frasier that wasn’t completely a snob. He always liked blowing up things, too, if he could! When he would discover his inner child, he would revel in it, and I think Transformers is one of those things."

Generations Japan TG-30 Waspinator and TG-31 Rhinox
Posted by News Fetcher on September 06 '13 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have received word that Japan will continue getting Transformers Generations toys in 2014! Takara-Tomy are adding to their version of Transformers Generations with releases of TG-30 Waspinator in February 2014 and TG-31 Rhinox in March 2014. Right now the only images available are placeholders, but all indications are that these will have slightly tweaked decos, perhaps some areas may sport metallic finishes, maybe in the style of the Beast Wars Telemocha reissues where only the robotic parts were done in metallic finish. Time will tell.

Big thanks to sponsors TFSource for this initial heads up - check out their listings for the pair of Japanese Generations Beast Wars!

Official Images of Upcoming Masterpieces - Soundblaster and Ratbat Announced
Posted by News Fetcher on September 06 '13 at 02:45 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
The Masterpiece line marches on, as official images emerge through preorder solicitations from site sponsor TFSource. We get to see what appears to be the final deco of the previously confirmed G2 Sideswipe, sporting red windshields and the additional weapon add-ons. The G2 Autobot symbol adorns his hood/chest. Also, if you look closely, there is one image with the G2 decoed spoiler and one image without. Could this mean that this figure will include a label sheet? Feel free to speculate!

The next image is two new figure, albeit one is a redeco of an existing figure - Masterpiece Soundblaster and Ratbat! While Soundblaster is a redeco of the Masterpiece Soundwave mold, Ratbat is a new mold entirely!

You can place your preorders with TFSource here for G2 Sideswipe and here for Soundblaster and Ratbat!

Possible Characters Not Returning In Transformers 4?
Posted by News Fetcher on September 05 '13 at 04:00 PM
By StayingInTheBox from TFW2005:
Please be advised the following are potential spoilers.

A piece of info has been dropped stating some Transformer characters may not be making a return to the big screen for the fourth live action film. "Nelson" of the Shoot For The Edit - Michael Bay forums has been known to drop hints before and seems to have stated Sideswipe and Dino won't be returning for Age of Extinction.

This is consistent of course with their cars not being seen on the set as well as the promises of a new robot cast for Transformers 4 as we've previously been told.

Are you okay with this possibility? Discuss after the jump.
