Transformers Universe Update from London's MCM Expo
Posted by News Fetcher on May 27 '12 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Jagex were presenting a panel on the Transformers Universe MMO at London's MCM expo over the weekend. During the panel they covered a whole bunch of features of the game, some of which we already knew from previous Q&A sessions, but there are also a few hints at new things which have not been covered previously, such as how you can use real-world currency in the game and why the title is "Universe" (hint: you're not going to be Earthbound forever...)

Here's a list of key points from the presentation, taken down by TFW2005 member Cosablanca:

A free web-based MMO based on Transformers Prime.

Aimed to last for at least 10 years.

Will have various known Transformers Characters

At launch the game will be based on Earth but eventually other “areas” will be accessible such as Cybertron + other planets. Hence, the name “Universe”. They have stated that new transformers will be introduced as we travel from one world to another.

Energon is aimed to be used as a currency.

Real money will be integrated in the game but in what way exactly has not been yet finalized. Most likely a way to increase the pace of things for people who would like quick results. It will not be used to purchase a more powerful weapon as that would not be fair.

Regarding Customization:

Initially only vehicles but animal forms/beast modes to follow.

You can choose a male or a female character.

There will be classes: ie brawler, snipper, technician (not yet defined)

Alternate modes are not just a mount

TFW Dark of the Moon Wheeljack / Autobot Que Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on May 27 '12 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Dark of the Moon's Wheeljack - known as Autobot Que on screen and in Japan - is one of a pair of toys that were slated for the ill-fated last assortment of the Dark of the Moon toyline. Never released at US retail, the toy has only seen release in Japan, and there's a limited release due to hit Asia any day now - and with that new release, we thought now would be a great time to share with you our gallery of this toy; to demonstrate why it's such a shame this one never got a wider release. Don't get me wrong - he's far from flawless as toys go, but Wheeljack's toy is a great representation of the onscreen character, has stacks of accessories, and is just fun to fiddle about with.

Don't just take our word for it - check out our extensive gallery for this toy and see for yourself!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A reminder friends that the next (and for the time being, last!) new episode of Transformers Prime airs on The Hub tomorrow at 8:30 ET | 5:30 PT. Toxicity is the finale of the four episode relic hunt arc, recounting the events that led up to the shocking final moments of last week's episode Triage! It's a big bad brawl between the brave Bulkhead and the insidious Insecticons, with the final Iacon relic in the balance.

The epic clash of bot VS bug is captured in this new still from the Transformers Facebook page, along with the info that "it's the last new episode for a while".

Fortunately we do not have too long to wait for new Transformers adventures because Transformers Rescue Bots returns from its own brief hiatus on 9 June! Watch this space for more news on future airings of Transformers Prime as they are revealed to us.

Transformers Prime Voyager Breakdown Dengeki Hobby Scan
Posted by News Fetcher on May 25 '12 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our friends and sponsors at Robot Kingdom have shared a couple of scans from the latest issue of Dengeki Hobby on their Facebook page. Dengeki Hobby's May issue includes a nice clear picture of Arms Micron series Breakdown, shown here in all his glory thanks to a nice higher-res scan. The design looks very sharp and close to how he looks in the show - and doubtless will look great alongside Knock Out and Bulkhead. He's coming to the US somewhere down the line, possibly as one of the three new Voyagers in Voyager Class Wave 4 - this will hopefully be confirmed at the San Diego Comic Con in July.

The second scan, which shows the whole page, gives another look at some other upcoming Japanese releases, including Arms Micron Knock Out and Vehicon, a Lucky Draw Transformers Prime Optimus Prime, and the Tokyo Toy Show exclusives Henkei Black Convoy and Transformers Prime First Edition Optimus Prime Clear Version.

E-Hobby and the Transformers Collectors Club Announce Partnership
Posted by News Fetcher on May 25 '12 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
E-Hobby have announced that they are entering into a collaboration with the Transformers Collector's Club! Exactly what this partnership is bringing to the table is unknown, but wishful speculation is that it will give Japanese fans access to the US TFCC exclusives, and US fans access to E-Hobby's own awesome exclusives without the need for a middleman.

Of course that is all speculation - full details will be announced on the E-Hobby Magazine site in due course. I for one am looking forward to finding out more - and once we know more we will share the news with you here on TFW.

Arms Micron Photos - Bulkhead, Arcee, and EZ Collection Wheeljack
Posted by News Fetcher on May 25 '12 at 12:00 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Here we get a look of some Japanese edition Prime figures with a set of photos. These photos detail the voyager-sized Bulkhead, deluxe-sized Arcee, and the EZ Collection (the equivalent of Legends in the US) Wheejlack. The Japanese editions comes with the Arms Microns and also some labels, and these photos allows us to see these figures sans labels. A careful eye will note the lack of paint applications that the US versions have and just how much these depend on the labels to enhance the look. Also noteworthy is that Bulkhead and Arcee do not sport shiny plastic as some fans thought with the original promotion photos.

Check out the photos after the jump!

Transformers Prime Cyberverse Optimus Maximus Review
Posted by News Fetcher on May 24 '12 at 09:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Prime Cyberverse series is bringing back that mightiest of Transformers - the massive Citybots! Back in Generation 1 these were the likes of Metroplex, Trypticon and Fortress Maximus, huge robots capable of transforming into bases for the smaller toys, and equally big battle station modes.

Recently released in Singapore, the Transformers Prime Cyberverse Optimus Maximus is a return to this concept. He's a big robot version of Optimus Prime capable of transforming into a battle station which can seat up to nine Cyberverse toys! Is this a return to the form of the original Citybots, or just one that's strictly for the kids? Fortunately you only need to read on to find out, as 2005 Boards member pingth has bought an Optimus Maximus and has very kindly provided us with the first review of this new Transformers base-bot!
