Transformers Prime Dark Guard Optimus Prime Revealed in Japanese Magazine Scans
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '12 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of a Japanese image board we have a look at some scans from the December edition Japanese hobby magazines. The December 2012 releases from Takara-Tomy are showcased herein including the first two releases from the Transformers Generations 2012 series (Optimus Prime and Autobot Jazz) plus the next three releases from the Transformers Prime Arms Micron series (Shockwave, Leo Prime and Ultra Magnus). There's also a look at the Japanese release of Bot Shots - known as Becool - and the two Transformers GT releases, GT Prime and GT Saber, shown here in robot mode albeit in a small picture.

The big news though is we also have our first look at the Yodobashi Camera exclusive release Dark Guard Optimus Prime. All those who were disappointed that Arms Micron Nemesis Prime did not use the First Edition Optimus Prime mold will be pleased to know that this is your black recolor of First Edition Optimus Prime. He also features some gold accents such as on the feet and shins, and overall looks quite sharp as far as black recolors go.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters In Package Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '12 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Juise has shared with us in-package images of the upcoming Transformers Prime Beast Hunters series. The packaging is sadly doing away with individual character art instead going for a single shot of Predaking in dragon mode. Notably we are also seeing more toys packaged in robot mode in this series - your mileage may vary on how welcome an addition that is.

Check out all the packaging photos after the jump for the Deluxe, Cyberverse Legion and Cyberverse Commander figures. As a bonus, Juise has also shared with us the product description with a one-line bio for new Evil Predacon, Laserback:

Chaotic Predacon rebel whose only goal is to scour the Earth clean of the Autobots®*!

Autobots beware, because this Lazerback figure is looking for a fight! This powerful robot comes with a missile-firing Toxic Strike Blaster that launches major destruction at the Autobots! When the battle calls for beast power, convert him to dragon mode, where his tail becomes a deadly whip. Keep converting him back and forth so his Autobot enemies can’t keep up!

Transformers GT Optimus Prime and Star Saber on Display at Fuji International Speedway Exhibition
Posted by News Fetcher on November 18 '12 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of the Twitter account of Bluesmobile325, we have some pictures to share with you from a display of the Transformers GT series at the Fuji International Speedway Exhibition. This is the first time the two GT series releases - GT Prime and GT Saber - have been shown off in public in their vehicle modes, meaning some new angles showing off more of the deco and sponsor details. There is also, by way of the display behind the toys, our first look at both in robot mode in color. They are photos of photos, and you'll need to strain a bit to see GT Saber's robot mode, but there is enough there for you to get an idea of the look of the robot modes. GT Saber is looking particularly sharp in his blue and white deco, with red head, feet and sword hilt.

Transformers Prime Japan Gatling Bumblebee In-Hand Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Autobase Aichi on Facebook has shared an in-hand look at the Japanese Toys R us Exclusive Transformers Prime Gatling Bumblebee, the Japanese version of the Weaponizer Bumblebee. Like Transformers Animated Bumblebee before it, Gatling Bumblebee features a metallic gold finish but only primarily on the panels visible in car mode, which creates a bit of a mismatched look in robot mode. Check out the pictures to see for yourself and decide what you make of this release.

TFW Transformers the Ride Evac (Universal Studios Exclusive) Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on November 17 '12 at 03:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our next new Transformers toy gallery for your enjoyment is this gallery of the Transformers the Ride exclusive release, Evac! Only available from Universal Studios, Evac is the star of Transformers the Ride, a new member of the Autobot team who takes visitors to the park on a journey that's more than meets the eye!

The Evac toy is a rather cool little exclusive. He's a complete new mold based on the character from the ride, transforming from a high-tech personnel carrier / the car from the ride into a movieverse styled robot mode. He fits right in with the movie toys too, particularly with contemporary releases from Dark of the Moon. He's got decent amounts of poseability in the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees with a little side-swivel in the ankles to allow for wider poses. On the vehicle mode, the sides of the vehicle lift-up, gullwing style, just like the car on the ride. There's no waist swivel in robot mode though, and no weapon or accessory either, though there are some 3mm clip points on the toy and 5mm peg holes in the hands as well.

All in all, Evac's a cool little toy. He's got a great look and fits in well with the movie series cast. Because he's a theme park exclusive, he commands a bit of a markup on the secondary market and your mileage may vary on whether that is worth it. Certainly at original retail if you are a movie series fan, this one is a good addition to your Autobot side.

High Moon Studios, the creators behind the popular and successful Transformers Fall of Cybertron game stated in a Q&A Thursday that they are not planning any future downloadable content for Fall of Cybertron.

The statement is as quoted below:

Can you add more colors and characters?

Unfortunatly not. Each color, new character, or really anything that gets added puts demands on what the game can support technically. At this point with the largest roster of Tranformer characters ever and dozens of colors we have reached the limit. Sorry Sludge fans!

Will you be adding any DLC maps?

A number of our fans have expressed an interst in buying DLC maps, however we feel this will have a negative impact a player's ability to quickly find a full match. This is a major learning we made from War For Cybertron. The addition of paid DLC maps splits the player community between those with the maps and those without.


This is obviously a huge disappointment for those who have been playing the game on a regular basis and enjoying it, but have started reaching the end-game limits. Many fans have questioned if games such as the Halo franchise can release map packs for over a year after the game is released, and Left 4 Dead 2 can continue to release new campaigns and multiplayer maps years after the game was released, why can't High Moon Studios do the same with Transformers Fall of Cybertron?

Transformers 4 may film in China

Entertainment site Vulture reports that their inside sources close to the Transformers 4 production team are informing them that Transformers 4 may film in China, and may even be co-produced between Michael Bay's production company and a Chinese partner company. The basis of the report is an increasing desire for US made films to make it in the notoriously tough Chinese box office. The article also includes a statement from Paramount, stating that "the script is still being written" and "it is not a Chinese co-production", so make of it all what you will.

It's not impossible that China may be involved in Transformers 4 in some way - after all, we have reports that London may have some location filming and that Bangkok is being considered. For now, take this as a rumor - albeit one that would make good financial sense should it play out.
