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.

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.

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.

Transformers 4 Teaser Poster Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on December 30 '12 at 09:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Director Michael Bay’s Official Facebook Fan Page has been updated with the Teaser Poster for Transformers 4.

The poster features Optimus Prime in the background and a group of onlookers in the foreground. Optimus Prime's image is from the Transformers: Dark of the Moon IMAX 3D Poster titled "Earth’s Last Stand" (featured with this news post).

The statement associated with the poster is not new however. It was the director’s response to the supposedly leaked script we saw couple of weeks back.

"Some Internet sites reported that some document recovery guy has found a legitimate 120 page script of Transformers 4. I can absolutely 100 percent say this is completely false. The only two people in the world that have our unfinished script are Kruger and myself. Also we are only up to page 70 in our T4 script. Maybe this guy has a cartoon or something else – but definitely not our movie!

Michael bay"


The teaser poster also reveals that TF4 will release on readD3D and IMAX 3D. You can take a look at the Transformers 4 Teaser Poster, after the jump.

Figure King January 2013 Edition Scans
Posted by News Fetcher on December 30 '12 at 04:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Courtesy of toy-world.com.hk wehave scans from the Japanese hobby magazine Figure King for January 2013. There's not a tremendous amount of new and exciting material within - there's a look at the upcoming Transformers Prime Wildrider, Frenzy and Rumble figures as well as the Arms Micron five packs, Masterpiece Soundwave, Rumble and Ravage, Japanese Generations Combaticons and Animation style Encore Devastator. All items we have seen plenty of lately. What is interesting though for Bot Shots fans are some Japan-only BeCool releases including a green Jazz, a yellow "Rescue" Ratchet and an orange-brown Megatron. Don't read too much into these though - BeCool is not being marketed as a Transformers series, so these might be mere recolors for the sake of looking cool.

Hasbro Masterpiece Optimus Prime Coming to UK via Amazon for £35?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 30 '12 at 04:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Naturally take this with a pinch of salt, but we have some good news for UK fans right here.

Amazon.co.uk have put up a listing for "Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime". There's no pictures attached to the listing, but other details including the description of features and the product number all match up. The great thing is the price - a mere £35 (about $60 according to the latest exchange rates)

After months of back-and-forth with Toys R Us UK about a release for Masterpiece Optimus Prime, is Amazon UK going to serve up the goods as well, at an almost too good to be true price to boot? Let's keep our fingers crossed that Amazon UK honors this preorder price and makes a whole lot of happy UK Transformers fans in early 2013.

Generations Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 3 Released at US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '12 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As 2012 draws to a close, you might be forgiven for thinking "there can't possibly be any more new toy sightings this year". That being said, we have one more happy sighting to report for you - the Generations Deluxe Wave 3 has been spotted in Washington State by 2005 Boards members Liege Prime and Deceptichage! So far the only one confirmed sighted is Ultra Magnus - but with all five in the same case, chances are that merely means someone got there first and bought up the other four new molds - Starscream, Kickback, Sideswipe and Air Raid.

The hunt is on! Happy hunting everyone! Share news of what you find with other local fans by way of our Transformers Sightings section.

iGear PP05P Patrol Specialist
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '12 at 12:45 PM
By process from TFW2005:
Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has listed a pre-order for the iGear PP05P Patrol Specialist. This release, limited to 500 pieces, features a new deco, pistol, and headsculpt. Unlike the previous Specialist releases, Patrol Specialist does not include an enormous amount of accessories, which some of you might actually appreciate.

Our experts on the TFW2005 boards are suggesting that figure may be based on the Off Road Patrol Micromaster Tote.

Patrol Specialist is expected to arrive around April 2013.

Please note that this is a third-party product not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara.

Transformers Asia Premium Series APS-02 Movie Brawl
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '12 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Asia has posted an update to their Facebook page teasing at the next Asia exclusive premium series released. The banner posted confirms that APS-02 will be a Decepticon - and the blurred out text cannot hide the fact that the full name of the character is Decepticon Brawl. Like the APS-01 Striker Optimus Prime, we presume this will be the 2007 Movie Leader Class Decepticon Brawl, with an updated / premium deco.

Keep it TFW for more news and pictures when they surface.

Here's a bit of release news for you - the Transformers Prime Dark Energon Voyagers have been released! They've been sighted at retail in Singapore, and fret not, because Big Bad Toy Store are also reporting that they now have these en route and in stock very shortly. In the mean time, check out these quick in-box pictures, which also includes a look at the bios for these toys.

Big Bad Toy Store is still taking preorders for these toys, either as a set of two, or as singles - Optimus Prime and Megatron.

Holy packaging errors Batman! Thanks to an error-packaged Beast Hunters Soundwave picked up at retail by 2005 Boards member Yobuster, we have confirmation of our third Predacon in the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters mainline! Ripclaw, a character previously featured as a Kre-O building set release, will also be getting a Deluxe Class toy as a part of what is assumed to be Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 2. Ripclaw features a pretty nifty looking dragon mode, and in robot mode, she features a pretty awesome battle claw on her right arm. Yes, you read that right - Ripclaw's bio, shown on this cardback, also confirms she will be a female Predacon villain for the Autobots to fight.

Check out the cardback scan by clicking on the thumbnail attached to this story, with massive thanks to Yobuster for sharing it with us all!

Transformers Prime Japanese Store Exclusive Nightmare Unicron (Darkness Unicron) Image

Takara-Tomy have made one other update to their website today - they've added a page for their next Transformers Prime store exclusive, Darkness Unicron, now referred to as Nightmare Unicron. According to the story text on the linked page, Nightmare Unicron appeared when the spark of Gaia Unicron was sealed away and he represents the still partially unsealed "true" incarnation of the Chaos Bringer, the story is a little fuzzy on this detail by our translation.

As speculated, Darkness / Nightmare Unicron is going to be a black version of the Chaos Bringer, so in his Gaia Armor form he'll blend well with Darkness Megatron or Nemesis Prime.

The page also specifies the launch of a content, the "Second Arms Improvement Content", a customizing contest for Japanese fans. It runs from 9th of January to the end of February. There are various prizes including a sound stage with Optimus Prime voice clips, a new Arms Micron Shining R.A. O and giveaways of Nemesis Prime. By our reading Nightmare Unicron isn't being given away through this contest, so it's likely this is the Darkness Unicron teased for a March release a while back as a Yodobashi Camera store exclusive, only available at the Akihabara (Tokyo) and Umeda (Osaka) branches.

TFW Transformers Prime Thundercracker Gallery

We're pleased to share with you this much-delayed gallery (thank the complication with photographing chrome and a chromed Arms Micron for that one). Here for your enjoyment as we wind down 2012 is the Japanese store exclusive Transformers Prime Thundercracker.

Thundercracker is the second outing of this particular tooling of the Transformers Prime First Edition Starscream, as he features the additional underwing boosters from Skywarp. Thundercracker is otherwise the same as First Edition Starscream, Skywarp, or any of the other releases of this mold - a tall and slender, yet sinister, winged Decepticon with a clever transformation and surprisingly good balance for feet with such small footprints. Baro "Silver Metal Version" is the Arms Micron, the chroming process unfortunately makes the Micron harder to put together smoothly and the finish chips easily, but it is very shiny.

All in all, Thundercracker is worthwhile if you're a Seeker fan, because he completes the trio of Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker for Transformers Prime. He's got perhaps the most vivid deco to be seen on this mold so far, with the blue and silver base and red details added with stickers really looking sharp.

Check out our gallery for over 100 photos of Thundercracker and his Arms Micron by opening the link below:
