Bot Shots 2013 Launchers Assortment - Generation 1 Themed!
Posted by News Fetcher on January 18 '13 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Site sponsors Robot Kingdom have put up another new Bot Shots listing, this time for a new launcher assortment. The first 2013 assortment of Bot Shots Launchers features Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, both are said to be Generation 1 themed. The Optimus Prime is a new mold, probably of the "Spin Shot" sub group judging by the way his arms are done. The Launchers are simplified compared to the 2012 assortment ones, but there seem to be more accessories with this set, as the picture suggests there will be little bowling pins or other accessories to launch your Bot Shots at included in the packaging.

Generations GDO Brawn Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on January 18 '13 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
While the fate of the Transformers Generations GDO Brawn - a reuse of the Prime First Edition Voyager Bulkhead mold with a new head - is still unknown, it might interest you to know that a pair of images popped up on the 78dm BBS by spyder.

These images are not proof positive that Brawn is still getting released though, as they are previously unreleased official images of Brawn that have been composited together, possible for a catalog. Time will tell what actually becomes of all this.

Beast Hunters Japan EZ Collection First Listings
Posted by News Fetcher on January 18 '13 at 04:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hot on the heels of the earlier Beast Hunters listings from Takara-Tomy, we have some listings of a Beast Hunters EZ Collection coming to Japan in April, also from Hobby Ark:

EG-01 Convoy
EG-02 Bumblebee
EG-03 Prowl
EG-04 Smokescreen
EG-05 Hound
EG-06 Tank Megatron
EG-07 Starscream
EG-08 Airachind

Once again no pictures are available. All are priced at SGD$13, implying they are all the same size class - in other words, Legion class. Of those named, you might recognize Bumblebee, Smokescreen and Airachnid from the first assortment of Beast Hunters Cyberverse - but there are other names on the list such as Prowl, Hound and Tank Megatron who are completely new to us.

Don't take the list as gospel though - EG-01 takes the name "Convoy", Optimus Prime's old Japanese name which has not been used for a mainstream line in Japan since 2009. However there are hints here at some kind of new Cyberverse / Legends class toys in some shape or form - time will tell what they actually are!

Beast Hunters Starscream Clear Images
Posted by News Fetcher on January 17 '13 at 11:45 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
2005 boards member juise has posted official images and profile information for Transformers Beast Hunters Wave 2 Deluxe Figures. While we have seen some of the figures before, this is our 1st clear look at Beast Hunters Starscream! Images of the figure out of package are attached. Here is his profile info:

The scheming Decepticon second-in-command Starscream looks forward to the day both the Autobots and Megatron are out of his way!

Autobots beware, because this Starscream figure is just the Decepticon to take any of them on! He’s a super-sneaky operator who wants all the power for himself, and his clenching Thunder Talon gives him the edge he needs in battle! When he needs to do recon or make a speedy escape, convert him to fighter jet mode. Keep converting him back and forth so his Autobot enemies can’t keep up!


[PRODUCT FEATURES]
• Powerful Starscream robot-to-vehicle warrior figure!
• Converts from robot to fighter jet mode and back!
• Clenching Thunder Talon!

Read on to see new images of Starscream, and the rest of the wave 2 deluxe descriptions!

Mark Wahlberg Says They Are Completely Rebooting Transformers Live Action Movies
Posted by News Fetcher on January 17 '13 at 09:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Actor Mark Wahlberg appeared on Jay Leno's The Tonight Show and said few things about Transformers 4.

“We’re doing a complete reboot of the Transformers. I did a movie with Michael Bay called Pain and Gain, which comes out in April. And we had an amazing time together and really hit it off, and he said ‘Hey, you want to do this other little movie I’m doing?’ Because that was a little movie, and I said ‘Yeah, I like doing little movies.' And he said Transformers. Whoa! You know what, we had such a great experience, I’m in.”

This statement conflicts with what the Director; Michael Bay told us not too long ago. However, the statement may also refer that they'll be going in a fresh direction rather than a reboot as the name implies.

The episode is now available online and 2005 Boards Member Albershide instructs us to skip to the 25th minute to hear what Mr. Wahlberg has to say.

By ORIO from TFW2005:
Did you rush out to your local comic shop today to pick up the newest spotlight comic from IDW? Or, did you download it from Comixology? If so, the adventure doesn't have to end after the last page. The Transformers Facebook page has uploaded their most recent commentary with writer John Barber.

So, we have more incoming for the foreseeable future.
