Transformers Rescue Bots Malaysian and Australian Production Deal
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '13 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hasbro studios has announced a deal with Malaysia’s leading studio, Vision Animation, and Australia’s Moody Street Kids to produce the 26 episode second season of Transformers Rescue Bots. Rescue Bots in this way follows in the footsteps of Transformers Prime with the shared production deal with Malaysia.

Of interest in this release is that it mentions pre-production will begin immediately, but that the delivery will be expected in 2014. This seems to run contrary to the report that Transformers Rescue Bots is already recording its second season, but time will tell what the reality of the situation is.

Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '13 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member uranusdd has shared with us some very nice, clear, high-resolution photos of the recently released Takara-Tomy Encore 20A Devastator Animation version. The great thing about these photos is they give us side-by-side comparisons of each Constructicon letting us appreciate all the little changes, like the lighter shades of green and purple, that went into this release to maximize the show accuracy alongside the more obvious ones like the new head for the combined mode. Read on to check out the gallery.

New Generations G1 Optimus Prime Teaser
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '13 at 08:30 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Our good friends friends from down under at Ozformers have posted a picture from the latest issue of Toy Hobby Retailer Magazine. Along with several brands from Hasbro on the cover is a new image promoting Transformers Generations and the image is a Generation 1 Optimus Prime with a Targetmaster-type weapon! The weapon has wheels and appears to have a blue truck cab. Could the 2013 Generations line possibly see a have a gimmick of convertible weapons like the Powercore Combiners or Arms Micron figures?

It's all very interesting, and hopefully, we'll find out more info next month at Toyfair 2013. For now, click the title bar and speculate away at the possibilities this could hold!

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Class Predaking Pictorial Review
Posted by News Fetcher on January 12 '13 at 12:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Once again, thanks to bbs.78dm.net we have another extensive gallery of the other Beast Hunters Wave 1 voyager, Predaking! This black, orange and silver dragon of death is shown here in both of his modes, with his twin dragon launchers and swords at the ready, and in package photos. Also shown is just how poseable this figure is in his beast mode. Predaking's dragon mode can be posed on all fours, on his hind legs and if you prefer him flying, you can have all four limbs at his side. It's quite remarkable looking.

What do you think? We've mirrored the images here for your enjoyment. Click the title bar to check them out!

Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Class Optimus Prime Pictorial Review
Posted by News Fetcher on January 12 '13 at 11:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Time to get a good, a very good look at Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters Voyager Class Optimus Prime.

Thanks to 78dm.net, we now have a good up-close look at the Autobot Leader. The new images finally put an end to "whether we are seeing a Faceplate or a Mouth?" debate. However, on-package CGI render of Beast Hunters Voyager Class Optimus Prime possibly indicate a new CGI face model for the show. But, we'll have to wait and see to confirm.

A size comparison with the Powerizer Optimus Prime indicate that this new Voyager mold is much larger that the previous.

We've mirrored the images for your viewing pleasure. Take a look at this fantastic Pictorial Review, after the jump.

UK Toy Fair 2013 To Feature Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters Toyline
Posted by News Fetcher on January 12 '13 at 09:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Every year, the 1st quarter brings joy for toy collectors worldwide. There's a very good reason for this; Toy Fairs are happening all over the world.

One of the earliest fairs is the UK Toy Fair and this year it's no exception. UK Toy Fair 2013 is just around the corner, held from 22nd to 24th January at the Olympia Grand Hall, London.

UK toy companies are busy these days, posting articles and newspaper advertisements to promote their products showcasing at the upcoming event. Hasbro UK is doing it too. TFW2005 found two small articles dedicated what to expect at the UK Toy Fair. They feature possible Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters European Toyline Release Schedules. Of course these are vague statements to promote the upcoming line and may vary. Also, Hasbro UK is the main distributor for our German fans as well. They didn't forget to mention when Germany can expect to see the Beast Hunters line.

Regarding UK Toy Fair 2013:
"Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters will be the touchstone for the award winning animated series from Hasbro Studios, with new action figures due to roll out in Spring 2013."

A similar statement was also made for Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair Nürnberg 2013:
"Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters will be the touchstone for the award winning animated series from Hasbro Studios, as new action figures will be launched in June 2013."

If you come across such advertisements and articles, feel free to share with us.

Stick with TFW2005 for more info on UK Toy Fair 2013 and Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters Toyline as we get them.

TFW Generations Fall of Cybertron Blaster with Steeljaw Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on January 12 '13 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up is the other new release from the next assortment of Transformers Fall of Cybertron Voyagers, Blaster (and his cassette turned data-disk companion Steeljaw)! Fall of Cybertron Blaster is one of the more extensive remolds that comes along every so often, featuring a new head, a new chest, a different gun and even new wheels which together with his brighter colors sets him apart from Soundwave / Soundblaster and gives him an identity all of his own. It's just as well, because Blaster deserves to be more than a mere copy of Soundwave (sorry Universe 2.0). What is great though is Blaster really takes the mold and runs with it. While Soundwave being bigger than his fellow Decepticons was a nuisance, it is less of an issue for Blaster, because Blaster was always a big guy among the Autobots.

Blaster's other blessing is that like a few Fall of Cybertron releases, he can work with the Classics series characters as a Classics version of Blaster, if you are so inclined. Your mileage will of course vary on how much the obviously Cybertronian look fits in with more Earthly alternate forms, but in robot mode he fits in nicely with characters like Perceptor.

There's not a lot to say about Blaster's diskbot partner Steeljaw. He's a pretty extensively reworked version of Ravage, but I found on mine the strong springs meant he never quite stood as flat as I would have liked. Ravage of course had his good and bad points and these carry over to Steeljaw. Regardless though, it is good to see Steeljaw included with Blaster, because just like Soundwave needs Laserbeak, Blaster needs his little partner bot too.

Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '13 at 11:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Transformers: Prime news is continuing… but this time it's not Toy News. Thanks to Zap2It, we now have the Airdate and the Title of first Transformers: Prime Season 3 episode.

1st Episode of Transformers: Prime Season 3 - Beast Hunters is titled as "Lost & Found" and will air on 15th February, 2013.

To the delight of fans, we now have the associated toyline on shelves at the same time.

Bring On The Beasts!

UPDATE: Fellow fans over at Seibertron.com, have reported an e-mail from Zap2it regarding this listing: Some kind of mistake has been made in which the Zap2It Transformers Prime episode guide has attributed an old episode of Transformers Animated (“Lost and Found”) airing on 2/15 as being a new episode of Transformers Prime. It is incorrect. This is being revised.

Sorry folks. On the upside, Transformers Animated is always fun to watch. We'll keep you updated as we get the latest news on Transformers Prime Season 3

Transformers Collectors' Club MTMTE Sneak Peek - Hero Optimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '13 at 10:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The Official Transformers Collectors' Club has updated their website with a sneak peek at issue #49 of their magazine. The sneak peek includes a "More Than Meets The Eye" style profile for "Hero" Optimus Prime with art by Dan Khanna. Check out the bio from the Club's site below:

In his home universe, "Hero" Optimus Prime was the sworn protector of Earth and its super energy source, forestonite. Along with fellow Autobots Electro and Volt, and the human boy Junpei, the Autobot Leader was able to repel Megatron and the Decepticons' attack. Although Megatron promised he would return to conquer not just the Earth but the entirety of the Milky Way galaxy, Prime stood vigilant, ready to thwart him at every turn!

Following the theft of the Rarefied Energon from the Classics Universe, chaos spread and soon found its way across the multiverse, threatening existence everywhere. Optimus Prime was selected by certain members of TransTech to leave his universe and travel to Axiom Nexus to be inducted into the newly formed group known as The Convoy - a collective of high-ranking Autobots from across the multiverse.

Masterpiece Soundwave Energon Cube Insert Papercraft
Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '13 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is something bizarre yet fun. Masterpiece Soundwave's release through Amazon in Japan comes with a special, clear Energon cube accessory. What Takara-Tomy has released as a special bonus is an insert for that cube to represent when the Decepticons "filled" the Energon cubes with energy plundered from Earth. It's a free download available from their site, and doubtless there's a possibility here to make some custom Energon cubes to display with your Transformers.

The Takara-Tomy campaign page is here.

Transformers Generations Japan TG-19 Grimlock and TG-20 Ratbat
Posted by News Fetcher on January 11 '13 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The next two releases in the Japanese Transformers Generations assortment have been revealed. Providing Japan with their dosage of space T-Rex, TG-19 is set to be Grimlock. And, in a surprise twist, TG-20 is Ratbat, a redeco of the Generations Scourge mold with a new head sculpt. Like Skywarp, Ratbat is presently a Japan-only release so you may wish to put in a preorder for him if you want one for your Classics lineup. Fortunately our sponsors TFSource who broke this news have your needs covered there along with a preorder for Grimlock. Both are due to be released in June.

In-Hand Photos of Beast Hunters Smokescreen

After a few days of speculation on whether or not Beast Hunters Smokescreen's spikey armor can be removed or not, we finally have an answer thanks to an in-hand gallery on ACToys. This gallery shows off the toy with and without the armor we've previously seen in other shots, showing off the mostly screen-accurate robot mode that is hidden underneath the armor, giving those who weren't happy with Arms Micron Smokescreen an option for a more accurate toy.

Beast Hunters Smokescreen will be released in the second wave of Beast Hunters deluxes alongside Bulkhead, Starscream and the Predacon Ripclaw.
