Prime Dark Energon Knock Out In Package Image
Posted by News Fetcher on October 31 '12 at 12:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Big Bad Toy Store has posted a picture of the Dark Energon Series Knock Out in package on their Facebook page. Dark Energon Knock Out has lost the paint apps on his weapon between the original promotional pictures and the final release version - hopefully that is the only paint app to disappear. Dark Energon Knock Out is looking particularly Generation 2-inspired with his translucent bright green plastic. Click on the thumbnail at left to check out the image.

You can buy Knock Out - along with the other three exclusive Deluxes in the set - through Big Bad Toy Store.

Generations Fall of Cybertron Soundwave and Soundblaster In Hand Photos
Posted by News Fetcher on October 29 '12 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Let's give some major thanks and love to 2005 Boards member Razor24 tonight, friends. Why? Because he has shared with us a nice and very extensive look at the newly-released at Australian retail Fall of Cybertron Soundwave and Soundblaster! Razor24's pictures give us our first proper in-depth look at these first two Voyager releases in the Generations Fall of Cybertron line, with comparison pictures with the previous War for Cybertron Soundwave and other War and Fall of Cybertron toys. He's also shared with us some thoughts on the toys, key points being:

- Laserbeak and Buzzsaw have no feet, so they are in a permanent "belly flop" state. They also only have one eye on their heads in the style of the cyclopian Decepticon Arms Microns and Movie Ravage.
- Soundwave and Soundblaster do not include the Generation 1 Optimus Prime blaster they were shown with in promotional shots, likely because it was costed out somewhere down the line.
- Soundwave is a beast of a robot, towering over the rest of the War and Fall of Cybertron toys. If scale is a concern this one might be too big for you - but the trade-off is the ability to deploy the minion data disks.

Read on to check out Razor24's full gallery of pictures which includes a detailed look at the transformation, plus all those lovely comparison shots.

Transformers: Prime - Rage Of The Dinobots Issue #3 Clean Cover
Posted by News Fetcher on October 29 '12 at 09:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Artist Ken Christiansen a.k.a BadflipKC of TFW2005 is treating us with the clean cover for Transformers: Prime - Rage Of The Dinobots Issue #3. He has uploaded the colored version as well as sketched versions of the said cover.

“Transformers Prime Shockwave, and.....

Hmm. I don't think they've announced the actual name of this very shiny character yet.

Overall, it's your basic two guys standing there pose. I liked the chance to get some lens flare in there, along with more molten slag, and the barrel rim of Shockwave's gun arm still red hot and smoking. Atmosphere, sparks, and distant burned out buildings tie it all together.”


Visit his blog; The Bad Flip Productions for more info.

You can appreciate more art from Mr. Christiansen over at his thread here at TFW2005.

One more this, almost forgot... He'll be at the Long Beach Comic Con, Nov. 3rd and 4th, you can find Ken Christiansen at #1401, Ken Christiansen/Bad Flip Productions. Go and say "Hi" to this awesome artist.

Kre-O Generation 2 Devastator Kreon Single Pack Release at Toys R Us
Posted by News Fetcher on October 28 '12 at 12:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here we have some news for you about a new Kre-O Kreon giveaway. It seems that Toys R Us are giving away a single packed version of the Generation 2 Devastator Kreon - previously only available as a part of their exclusive Autobot Assault Devastator set. We're not sure on the exact details of this release just yet - the original report from Jo Paulin on the Reprolabels group on Facebook only says "ask about it in store". But for those wanting this Kreon without having to drop nearly $100 on the larger set this is an ideal way of getting a G2 Devastator mini-figure.

TFW Prime Arms Micron Gaia Unicron Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on October 27 '12 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Last month saw the release of two Japan-only entries into the Transformers Prime line, and today we're bringing you a gallery of the first of these two Japan only releases - Gaia Unicron!

Season 1 of Transformers Prime ended, as many of you already know, with the awakening of the Chaos Bringer on the Autobot's adopted homeworld, forming avatars of himself from the rocks and mountains of Earth to face them. This toy recreates the look of the robot mode and has some nice rocky texturing. His poseability is a little on the limited side because of the design, but thanks to the massive horns on the shoulders and skeletal wings, Unicron has a real presence about him.

Gaia Unicron's alternate mode is a bit odd, and it's not 100% clear exactly what it is meant to be - but stand it on end and you get a nice mountain with Unicron's face in it, recalling the scene where Megatron spoke with Unicron in One Shall Rise Part 1. There's also the Gaia Armor mode, which lets Unicron merge with Optimus Prime or Megatron. It's random and you'll either love it or hate it. But it's a bit of fun extra functionality all the same.

Gaia Unicron comes with the Arms Micron Bog or Bogu, depending on your translation, a rocky little mole tank that forms Unicron's hook arm for the complete show-accurate robot mode. There's plenty of Arms Micron sockets on all Unicron's modes, so plenty of scope for different weapon combinations if you've got a good stock of Arms Microns or other weapons with 5mm pegs.

All in all, he's an odd design, quirky and all, but worth the price of entry because ultimately, this is the closest we'll get to a Unicron in the Prime toyline.

Open the link below to see the full gallery showcasing all the different modes and featuring comparisons with other Unicrons and Prime toys of all sizes!

Thanks to an interview with the The Los Angeles Times, we now have an interview with Transformers: Prime Executive Producer Jeff Kline, where he talks about the future of the series, Micheal Bay, and the rise of Beast Hunters. Check out a quick snippet below, and click here to read the full interview.

"As anybody who’s been watching the show knows, we tend to get bigger and bigger and paint ourselves into corners. So the end of Season 2 will paint us into a corner and hopefully you’ll be surprised at how we get ourselves out of it. For Season 3, we’re actually bringing Beasts into the story, which is a big game-changers. Not necessarily “Beast Wars” way or “Dino-bots” but Beasts, which are part of the Transformers lore. For us, it’s important to be able to justify that previous lore within our own continuity. One of the big things for us is the idea that Earth and Cybertron have been interrelated for eons. The Unicron arc played with that quite a bit. But Season 3 will be even more about how Earth and Cybertron are brother, or twin, planets in some way. And, as we’ve been doing for two seasons, allegiances will change, good guys and bad guys will switch sides, new elements will be brought in and old elements will be sent away. We try to change it up because we always want our Autobots at a disadvantage. From the very beginning, there have always been fewer Autobots than Decepticons, they’re technologically disadvantaged. We’ll continue to try to stack the deck against them."
