Platinum Edition Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus Toy Fair 2013
Posted by News Fetcher on February 09 '13 at 12:45 PM
By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
Platinum Edition Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus from the Hasbro Toy Fair 2013 Event.

Platinum Edition Ultra Magnus comes with the Forge Of Solus Prime seen in season 2 of Transformers Prime. In addition, this new Magnus figure is a heavily retooled version of the Weaponizer Optimus Prime figure. Though it uses an Optimus figure as a base, the wealth of new unique parts leaves it looking substantially different.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Shockwave First Image
Posted by News Fetcher on February 08 '13 at 12:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
vic2993 via Planet Iacon on Facebook has shared something awesome with us. He has shared our first look at the toy for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Shockwave! The image is small, but comes from a Hasbro catalog. It indicates Shockwave will come with two gimmicks - a spinning Hyperflux Cannon, which is his gun arm. It appears to close up for a more show accuate look. The second gimmick is advertised as snap-on Beast Armor - in other words like Beast Hunters Smokescreen, Shockwave will have the option of shedding his Beast Hunters spikes to look more like his on-screen appearances so far.

A vehicle mode is also seen, Shockwave appears to transform into a tank or artillary unit of some description.

Hopefully this is one toy we can see more of at the US Toy Fair 2013 this weekend along with all the other upcoming good stuff.

Visual Effects Supervisor Jeff White Returning For Transformers 4 CGI
Posted by News Fetcher on February 07 '13 at 05:00 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
At an interview by Collider Visual Effects Supervisor Jeff White stated that he is returning for CGI of Transformers 4.

White served as Digital Production Supervisor on Transformers, and then was elevated to Association Visual Effects Supervisor on the subsequent sequels Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.

Does it feel the same way with Transformers?
Oh, yeah! We thought Transformers 1 was the hardest thing we’d ever done, and then we did Transformers 2. And then, Transformers 3 came and Michael [Bay] came up with this sequence where the building is falling over and they’re inside of it. He said he came up with it while he was doing stomach crunches. But, it’s great! We don’t want to do the work that we’ve done before. We love trying to figure out the problems and create imagery that people haven’t seen before.

You also did that with Transformers: The Ride.
Yeah, it’s really fun! I just went on it about a month ago, now that it’s opened in Los Angeles, and it’s nice ‘cause I finally had had a little separation from it. It ended up being about a two-year process to create it. To then go on it with people who had never been involved, everybody screams at the same place. It was a lot of fun. Typically, you’ve got a movie theater screen and, even if it’s 3D, you’re bound by a frame. All of a sudden, we had no borders, so we could do a lot of fun things in 3D with that. The beauty of it is that you sit in a car with 11 other people and you get that immediate feedback. It’s funny, they took us up in the rafters and it’s literally like the car drives in, everybody screams, and then the car drives out, every time. It’s cool to see that it has the desired effect.

Where do you go from here? What are you working on next?
I’m starting pre-production on Transformers 4, which has some really exciting stuff in it. And then, we’ll see what the future holds. Certainly, if the opportunity came to work on the next Avengers, I’d definitely jump at it.

Hasbro has sent us the Official Press Release for Toy Fair 2013 (110th American International Toy Fair).

Featured Transformers related products are as follows:

"Featured in Hasbro's Toy Fair showcase is the highly anticipated launch of BEAST HUNTERS, the touchstone for the TRANSFORMERS brand entertainment in 2013 driven by the award winning "Transformers Prime" animated series. Produced by Hasbro Studios and seen by kids and fans in 182 countries around the world, the third season of the series finds the AUTOBOTS facing off against both the DECEPTICONS and unprecedented new foes: the dragon-like PREDACONS. The BEAST HUNTERS multi-platform IP and new PREDACON characters come to life across programming, digital games, publishing, new toys and more. At Toy Fair, Hasbro introduces a new, highly innovative way to experience TRANSFORMERS action figures with CONSTRUCT-BOTS, the first ever line of TRANSFORMERS figures that kids can customize and convert."

TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS ELITE Action Figure Assortment
