Transformers 4 Filming Details From Elgin Texas
Posted by News Fetcher on June 09 '13 at 06:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Fox 7 has posted a filming update for Transformers 4 from Elgin, TX.

It’s is said the shooting will happen at the Elgin Cotton Oil Mill, explaining why casting crews needed Oil Workers not too long ago.

Brian Lundgren (Owner of the Oil Mill) says Michael Bay's crew will be shooting scenes inside his building...and that's pretty much all he can say. Any Transformers 4 plot details are hush hush.

"I think it's pretty cool you know, it's kind of a different use for these old buildings that have been around forever and it's pretty neat. It's gonna get busy. They said they're gonna have 40 tractor trailer rigs just for equipment when they start shooting next week so it's gonna kind of take over the town sounds like," Lundgren said.

Transformers: The Ride-3D At Universal Studios Orlando
Posted by News Fetcher on June 09 '13 at 04:45 PM

Transformers: The Ride-3D at Universal Studios Orlando

I had a chance to check out the "technical rehearsal" for Transformers: The Ride-3D at Universal Orlando today. Taking advantage of today's 3D technology, Transformers fans will be able to join NEST agents to do battle for control of the Allspark. You’ll climb into EVAC and take on Megatron, Starscream, Ravage and a host of other Decepticons!

Walking down the main path way to the ride, you are greeted with a life-sized scale of Optimus Prime that overlooks the park. NEST agents greet you at the gate and recruit you into the battle. Once you enter the main building, there are several "chambers" each one with its own recruitment video, training exercises and Transformers props that help pass the time while you make your way to the main event. The posted waiting time for the ride is 90 minutes, but it turned out to be a little over 45 minutes to make it through the line and enter EVAC.

Once you make your way to the EVAC vehicle, 12 people enter the car and the ride begins. The first battle is Ravage, he jumps out at EVAC shooting lasers and grabs the Allspark. The ride continues on as you battle through the streets fighting the Decepticons at each station, with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and NEST agents helping EVAC.

Right from the start, the 3D effects were like nothing I have ever seen in a movie, or any other 3D ride I have been on. At one point, Megatron shoots a missile off at your face, and you can physically feel the heat as it passes by, while smoke and wind activate to give you the best effects I have ever seen put into a rail system virtual simulator. The motion of the car shifting into gear and high acceleration feels real and is very entertaining. Transformers: The Ride-3D succeeds in captivating the senses at every corner. The total ride time is just over 3 minutes.

TFW Transformers Prime Dark Energon Series Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on June 09 '13 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A major plot device in Transformers Prime, Dark Energon is some seriously evil stuff, capable of reviving dead Transformers as monstrous shambling Terrorcons. For the toyline, however, Dark Energon meant a set of six cool redecos, and today we have galleries to share with you of four of those six redecos. Much like the upcoming Target exclusive Predacons Rising assortment, these redecos came on specially redone backer cards which swapped the silver and red of the usual Transformers Prime packaging for black and purple, which in this fan's opinion looks a lot more eye-catching and dynamic.

The redecos of the toys as well were a lot of fun, with all six of them making use of translucent plastics and some pleasing homage decos, such as Dark Energon Wheeljack as a homage to Action Master Slicer and Dark Energon Starscream as a version of Skywarp. Plus the Dark Energon Optimus Prime features a remolded, faceplateless head - the only way thus far this tooling has been made available. The figures are still available online via our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store, who had these as an exclusive.

Check out the galleries by opening the links below and see what you think of these cool redecos:

Megan Fox Back For Transformers 4?
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '13 at 09:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
In a very interesting turn of events, a conversation happening on Michael Bay's official forum seems to suggest Megan Fox is back for Transformers 4.

It all started when Paramount Pictures made an Instagram image about the recently revealed Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe with the hashtag #MeganFox. Pretty soon, S4TE member MV95 informed this to other members. Later, forum admin Nelson replied mistaking it for a Twitter post. Here's what happened:

MV95 wrote: So the Paramount Pictures official Instagram page posted a photo of the new Lamborghini on their page with the hashtag #MeganFox. Could this be telling us something or (more realistically) is this a mistake or plot to get more views?

Nelson wrote: Keep in mind that Twitter allows 140 characters max (including spaces). That was a fake tweet cause it had way more than 140 characters.


Conversation got pretty interesting when another member pointed out that it had nothing to do with the character limit:

starscream1017 wrote: except it wasn't on twitter, it was on Instagram

Nelson wrote: My bad. Someone's in trouble. It's gonna be a long week.


Moments later, the Instagram image was removed from the Paramount Pictures account. But we have a copy for posterity. Check it out after the jump.

TFW Transformers Prime Arms Micron Silas Breakdown Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '13 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yesterday's all-new episode of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters, Thirst, saw the return of Breakdown as subverted by the human villain and MECH leader Silas. CyLAS or Silas Breakdown as he is known combines Breakdown's mechanical might with Silas' cunning tactical mind - though as you might have seen in Thirst, there was a bit more going on there too.

Transformers Prime Arms Micron Silas Breakdown was a Japan exclusive release, and the third outing for the Japan-only Voyager Class Prime Breakdown mold after War Breakdown and Autobot Swerve. For this release, the mold was redecoed in black, with a new head tooling and a chromed bumper. It is not really show accurate (in the show, CyLAS deco was a more worn version of Breakdown's, with no bumper) but it is a very pleasing and dynamic deco all the same. In a nice touch, the sticker sheet comes with a lot of extra optional stickers including ones to represent battle damage and scarring on the metal armor, allowing you to customize your Silas Breakdown with scarred armor, or as I have done with mine keep his black body unmarked and "clean". Another nice touch is the inclusion of a remolded portion of the stomach area to incorporate a molded human Silas wired into Breakdown, as seen in the cartoon.

Silas Breakdown's Arms Micron partner is a preying mantis, Magi, which transforms into a claw weapon. Again it is not based on a weapon that Silas or Breakdown ever used in the show to my knowledge, but the style of it fits Silas, his background and his fighting style perfectly.

Overall, Silas Breakdown is a fantastic release. The additional sticker details allow for a full range of customization, and the base toy is one of the best developed for the Transformers Prime line - more the pity, then, that it never made it to markets outside of Japan.

TFW Hasbro Masterpiece Optimus Prime Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 07 '13 at 04:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Ever the leading man of the Autobot forces, Optimus Prime is the flagship of the Transformers brand. The iconic Autobot leader has been the recipient of many toys across the years, and tonight we are going to highlight another of the major high-end ones - the Masterpiece Optimus Prime, released late last year by Hasbro.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime is the domestic release of Takara-Tomy's MP-10 Convoy Version 2. He's not to be confused with the 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime, which is sometimes referred to as Masterpiece Optimus Prime in fan circles. The US version of the MP-10 mold is a triumph through and through - it includes everything from the Japanese release right down to the trailer and the Spike minifigure, plus it has what some consider to be the superior paint job particularly with regards to the eyes. It's a fantastic release truly worthy of the name "Masterpiece".

Third Party Fall of Cybertron Swoop Cassette
Posted by News Fetcher on June 07 '13 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Zicoyu of TFG2 dropped us a line to share this link with us, showing off an interesting little unofficial custom Transformers item. We're not clear on if this is a full-on Third Party release or a garage kit, but you can see from the pictures that it is a great, and small, version of the Fall of Cybertron Swoop pterodactyl. Zicoyu informs us that this Swoop, rather than assuming a robot form, can transform into a cassette tape mode that can fit inside Masterpiece Soundwave.

Watch this space for more news on this and other unofficial third party releases.

Guilty Pride Fall of Cybertron Accessory Set
Posted by News Fetcher on June 07 '13 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of the Weibo page of Find me Guilty we have a look at their next release, an accessory set for Fall of Cybertron Starscream. The set gives Starscream a crown based off his 1986 Transformers movie (which he can get and wear as an Easter Egg in Transformers Fall of Cybertron) along with a Nucleon Charge Rifle also from the Fall of Cybertron game. We should make you aware though that in addition to not being licensed by Hasbro, this release also seems to have been copied from Fakebusker's Shapeways store, potentially without their permission.

Michael Bay's website has updated with a fresh Transformers 4 update. Joining the lineup of vehicles in Transformers 4 is the sleek 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe.

No word as yet on which Transformer this will be (or if it will even be a Transformer) but it seems likely. Keep it TFW for more information as it comes to light.
