Botcon 2013 Baseball Cap Reveals Machine Wars Thundercracker
Posted by News Fetcher on March 05 '13 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Botcon Twitter account brings us some more Botcon 2013 news - they have posted an image of the Botcon 2013 baseball cap. The Botcon 2013 Baseball cap features the Megaplex version of the Decepticon symbol with Fun Publication's take on Machine Wars Thundercracker in front of it. Like in the original line, their illustration of Machine Wars Thundercracker is a redeco of Skywarp - in other words, it is based upon the Revenge of the Fallen Dirge mold.

An illustration does not a toy make, however you might be interested in an exchange of tweets between one Twitter user and Botcon:

- From Twitter user Emerald Beacon - so you're basically confirming MW Thundercracker with this hat, right?

-Response from Botcon - Basically...


"Basically" is such an open term of course - there is no telling just what that actually means. But the signs are pointing to "yes" to one of this year's Botcon 2013 souvenir figures being a Machine Wars Thundercracker.

Botcon 2013 Megaplex Jet Mode Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 05 '13 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Botcon homepage has updated with an image of the Botcon 2013 Megaplex in jet mode. Jet mode Megaplex is a homage, naturally, to the originally Machine Wars Megaplex. What is surprising is that there is a lot more black in the form of a series of stripes on the jet mode which are invisible in robot mode when viewed from the front. It is a rather sharp looking deco, and helps to break up what would otherwise be a mass of drab, solid grey.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 4 Arcee, Knock Out and Vertebreak
Posted by News Fetcher on March 05 '13 at 11:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Facebook page has updated their page with official images of the next three Transformers Prime Beast Hunters - Arcee, Vertebreak, and Knock Out! Vertebreak and Arcee we learned of when the official Transformers Prime website updated to Beast Hunters, but Knock Out is new to us. As with previous versions of "returning characters" Beast Hunters Knock Out is an extensively remolded version of the existing Transformers Prime Deluxe class toy, with a new weapon - a rather nasty looking flail.

Arcee is a remold of her previous Deluxe class toy, with a gigantic longbow and these images give us our first look at her in motorcycle mode. Vertebreak is, as seen previously, a redeco of Lazerback.

The images are mirrored attached to this post for those without access to Facebook.

However, a special World Premiere Screening Event will held at the Universal Studios Globe Theater on Thursday, March 14th from 7:30-9pm.

Transformers: Universe Developer Interview By Game Informer
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '13 at 09:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Jagex; developers of Transformers: Universe MOBA recently sat down with Game Informer for an interview.

It is clear from the interview that the game is undergoing some drastic changes from what we fans initially thought it to be. First of all the game went from an MMORPG to an MOBA. Now new information is regarding the character customization aspect of the upcoming game.

In what ways can you create and customize your character? Do you play a single Transformer, or multiple characters?

Horton: Full character customization like you see in MMORPG’s can’t really be all that varied for a car that has to transform into a robot smoothly and also perform as a game character flawlessly, making a Transformers character that performs its duty a challenge before you add any really worthwhile customization. Picking bits of headgear, tunic colors or adding body kits to a vehicle aren’t that straightforward in a robot-vehicle character. We have customization, but the ultimate dream of creating your own custom bot from a car of your choice is a massive undertaking that doesn’t really enhance the game that much. It’s not as cool when you compare it to having your own collection of purpose-built bots with different play-styles, handling, weaponry, and specialties. It’s in the Transformers brand DNA as a toy, something that captures your imagination as you take it on adventures, not to mention the collectability, having a cool selection of Transformers characters. Its game art imitating life.

Transformers Masterpiece Acid Storm Hasbro Release Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '13 at 01:00 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Check out official images of the upcoming Transformers Masterpiece Acid Storm set for release by Hasbro later this year. This is a redeco of the Masterpiece Starscream mold, referencing a character in Transformers lore built upon a brief appearance of alternate colored Cybertronian jets in the first episode of the original G1 cartoon (Sunstorm also sprang from this appearance). Masterpiece Acid Storm will make his first appearance in the US, as of now there is no Japanese version available.

Botcon 2013 Character Art Montage
Posted by News Fetcher on March 04 '13 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted up a montage of character art from the upcoming Botcon 2013 Machine Wars Termination set. The artwork does a good job of drawing together the five characters in the set and drawing them with a unified, Marvel comics style artwork. Don't be too fooled by the blade on Megaplex's arm, though - we've been told that Megaplex will come with the Powerizer MechTech weapon and not this extra blade, which was added by artist Josh Burcham based on an addition he'd made to Machine Wars Megatron for an art piece back in 2011.

Open this link to view the original image on the Transformers Facebook page - it might well be a sneak peak at the bio-card artwork for this year's Botcon set.

Our fellow fans from Australia, the Ozformers, have shared pictures from the 2013 Australian Toy Fair. It is light on new reveals - the greatest part of the new stuff having been seen at the US Toy Fair last month - but there are some new items such as:

Back of box images for Generations Springer and Blitzwing

Confirmation that Generations Blitzwing has three faces, and is inspired by his Animated counterpart.

A second five-figure booster pack of Kreons is revealed, collecting Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime, Megatron, Soundwave and a mystery fifth figure

Marvel Transformers Crossovers return - sort of - in the Iron Man 3 line which features transforming figures "with Transformers technology"

Check out their full coverage here. Note that there were a couple of things on display they were not allowed to share, and these are blurred out in the pictures.

As a bonus, here are the bios for Springer and Blitzwing, as transcribed by 2005 Boards member AutobotMirage:

Autobot Springer:

Autobot Springer was built to be a tough guy. Everything about him, from his nickel-plated blaster cannon to his bad-boy attitude, is calculated to communicate exactly what he wants it to-that he's a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He prefers to fight alone, trusting his skills and luck to get him out of tight spots, rather than relying on his fellow warriors. After all, other Autobots fail. Autobot Springer never does.

Jeff Kline Interview - Beast Hunters Series Hints, New Characters & The Next TV Series
Posted by News Fetcher on March 03 '13 at 04:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Transformers: Prime producer Jeff Kline has recently sat down with Hero Complex for an interview regarding the upcoming 3rd and Final Season of Transformers: Prime; titled Beast Hunters.

At the interview Mr. Kline briefly states that there will be new characters, some of which long time fans would please to see. However, the names will be kept in secret till the reveal.

"There will be new allies as well, some familiar to longtime fans, but those remain secret. The good guys will need them, too, since many of their own have fallen, and the producers have shown a willingness to thin the ranks."

Finally, the producer mentions what we might see in the future. That’s right, a new Transformers cartoon series… the next iteration after Transformers: Prime and its rebranded Season 3; Beast Hunters:

"Kline said the creative team is working on a new “Transformers” show that could go into production soon, but he was reluctant to reveal too many details. As for “Transformers Prime,” he believes viewers ultimately will feel as though the saga has reached an appropriate conclusion.

"I believe that at the end of episode 313, you will feel like this particular tale in the ‘Transformers’ mythology has been told,” Kline said. “Hopefully there will be some surprises, but you will be satisfied".
"

You can read the original article at Hero Complex.

Transformers: Prime Season 3 - Beast Hunters will debut this March 22nd on Hasbro-Discovery Hub TV Network with a Red Carpet Premiere on March 16th.
