Snakas has posted on his blog information on a third series of the Transformers Prime Arms Micron Gashapon series. The capsule toys in this series include a Ratchet who transforms into a claw, a Wheeljack who transforms into a sword, a Starscream who transforms into what looks like a boomerang, and an Arms Micron wasp, for which we have not got a look at the alternate form.

TV Boy Exclusive Transformers Prime Gashapon Optimus Prime Clear Red Version
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '12 at 08:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Snakas (aka Autobase Aichi) has posted some pictures on Facebook of an exclusive item coming with the September edition of TV Boy magazine in Japan. Being given away free with the September issue is a clear red version of the Transformers Prime Gashapon Arms Micron Optimus Prime Blaster! The clear red version seems to have been inspired by Takara-Tomy's recent campaign of Hell Flame Arms Microns to mark the release of Darkness Megatron - one thing is certain, that this mold does look sharp in red plastic, especially in gun mode.

Transformers Fall of Cybertron Demo Out now for XBox 360, Tomorrow for Playstation
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '12 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The demo for the much-anticipated Transformers Fall of Cybertron is here... if you are an Xbox 360 owner, Playstation 3 owners will need to wait until tomorrow for the demo to go up on the Playstation network.

Ushering out the month of July or bringing in August regardless, it is a great chance to get a small taste of the shape of things to come. According to this report from Video Gamer, the demo gives you a feel of both the single player and multiplayer demo action - the single player component of the demo sees you playing the first level as Bumblebee, and also gives you a quick spin behind the controls of the Decepticon Vortex. On the multiplayer front you get a shot at the character creation, and the Team Deathmatch / Conquest modes. By all accounts a good taste of what we will have to look forward to in Fall of Cybertron when it hits on 21 August.

Kabaya DX Gum Transformers (Fortress Maximus) In Hand Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on July 31 '12 at 03:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Alfes2000 of the Higekuma Toy Toy Blog has posted a pair of galleries of the newest Kabaya Transformers assortment, the DX Gum kits. The DX kits come with small Transformers and bases for them to interact with, sort of like the old Micromaster bases of old. The three bases together though can be combined to form the mighty Fortress Maximus. Fully assembled this candy kit version of Fortress Maximus stands at approximately the height of a modern Voyager Class toy - a perfect height for those looking for a Marvel comics Generation 1 scaled Fortress Maximus to interact with their Classics collection.

Check out the two galleries, this one here for the individual bases and the associated mini-Transformers, and then this one here for the combined Fortress Maximus form of the three bases.

Wonder Festival 2012 Transformers Wrap-Up
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '12 at 07:30 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Over the weekend, Wonder Festival 2012 was happening in Japan, with displays from CMs Corps, Kaiyodo, and Takara in full swing, as well as some interesting unofficial kits (which were on sale.) Takara's own display, while limited, gives a good look at some upcoming Arms Micron gashapon releases.

Aside from the Exo-Suit Spike and Daniel that we reported a few days ago, the recently released Gutto Kuru Minerva (as well as the special color version on sale at the show) CMs Corps also had the upcoming Gutto Kuru Ginrai on display, alongside a special colored body with the Hi-Q head attached.

On the Kaiyodo side of things, we turn to the Revoltech display booth, where they had not only the recently released Revoltech Movie Bumblebee on display, but the upcoming Jetwing Optimus Prime (which will retail for 4800 yen.)

But that is not all! One of the highlights of each Wonder Festival event is the wide variety of fan-made garage kits and merchandise, such as a Metroplex kit (that went for 15,000 Yen, approximately 191.82 US Dollars with the current exchange rate) and a super-deformed transforming Fortress Maximus!

Special thanks to Wondanon on Twitter for providing us with pictures of Ginrai, Hi-Q and the Metroplex kit.

TFW Generations Classics Swerve (Asia Exclusive) Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '12 at 07:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Today we are proud to present the first of four galleries for the recently released Generations Asia Exclusive Deluxe Assortment! These four toys are all great additions to the growing Classics / Generations series, and are going to get a limited run later in the year exclusively through Toys R Us in the US, so please take this as an opportunity to get an early look at these store exclusive toys.

First up is Swerve, an update of the Minibot who has seen a surge in popularity thanks to James Roberts. Generations Swerve is a reworked version of Generations Kup with a very nice alternate head (which makes me think of a firefighter for some reason). The design is exceedingly clever, with lots of little details like the white truck bed, black hood and even the Autobot symbol placement on the roof all evoking the original character. He's a bit of a leftfield choice for a new toy, but he fits the design very well and the new head gives him a certain charm. One that is well recommended, especially if you missed out on picking up Kup for whatever reason.

Check out the full gallery by opening the link below:

Movie Series Striker Optimus Prime, Asia Premium Series Exclusive
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '12 at 02:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is an interesting teaser for you - 2005 boards member Red leader sent us over an image teasing an Asia Premium Series Optimus Prime toy. Not just any Optimus Prime, but the Movie series Striker Optimus Prime, who was the upgraded version of Revenge of the Fallen Leader Optimus Prime with additional weapons to form the Stealth Force mode seen in concept art for Dark of the Moon. This one is due for a release in late September / early October and will be a limited edition. Red leader says "trust me, this one will be very special"; could this be a true premium series release for the Striker Optimus Prime toy, on the same level as the much sought-after Revenge of the Fallen Buster Optimus Prime?

Watch this space for more information.

A fresh update from TFcon by way of Peaugh is this new upgrade for the FansProject Steel Core to give him the head and chest of Transformers Armada Overload! We're not sure - yet - what the story is with these but we think they are probably connected to the extra core figures seen yesterday. These are only rough mockups, but they should give you an idea of yet another upcoming release from FansProject.

Collection Intervention New Series Premier August 14th On Syfy
Posted by News Fetcher on July 29 '12 at 07:45 AM
By DESTRO from TFW2005:
Collection Intervention follows Elyse Luray, former Head of the Collectibles Department at Christie's, as she helps couples, families and individuals whose pop-culture memorabilia collections from Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica to Catwoman and Barbie have become damaging obsessions, creating financial strife and a huge strain on their lives. Elyse will create a strategy that helps these collectors curate and showcase their collection by assessing where the true value lies and then allow them to decide what's worth keeping and what they can sell. These massive collections include dining rooms stuffed with 30,000 comic books, a garage filled to the rafters with Catwoman memorabilia, and an almost uninhabitable house filled with Transformers. For each collector, parting with some of their collection may free up some much needed space in their home, provide cash windfall to get out of debt, or even just allow a couple to become more focused on their relationship.

Heero Toys Maker WST Stepper / Ricochet
Posted by News Fetcher on July 29 '12 at 07:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Heero Toys Maker, maker of custom unofficial Worlds Smallest Transformers, has unveiled his next project, a custom Worlds Smallest Stepper / Ricochet. In Generation 1, Stepper was a remolded version of Jazz, so this version too copies the basic design and engineering of Jazz, but also adds in the additional molding to mount the Targetmaster partner, which is new to this variation of the design.

This is an unauthorised unofficial fan made product and is not endorsed by Hasbro or Takara-Tomy

Here's one for those of you who are fans of season 3 of the original Generation 1 Transformers and are looking for a Spike or a Daniel for your collection - Takara-Tomy licensee CM's Corporation has your needs covered. Their next Transformers themed entry into the Guttu Kuru figure series was teased at the Summer Wonder Fesitval 2012 - check out the silhouette shown on Photozou here.

Stay tuned for more news from the Summer Wonder Festival 2012!

Even as TFcon blazes along (and we mean blazes - have you seen the onslaught of third party news coming out today?) we think ahead to next weekend and Europe's biggest Transformers convention, Auto Assembly. It's promising to be a great and fun weekend, and there is a fun contest for all attendees to have a go at - a treasure hunt! The staff of our fellow fan site Full Metal Hero are hiding 20 cards around the convention centre - finding one of these cards entitles you to win one of a treasure trove of fabulous prizes including not just Transformers but also Thundercats and GI Joes too! It's a great bit of fun for all the family for you to take part in as a break from hunting bargains in the dealer room!

Auto Assembly 2012 is taking place next weekend, 3-5 August 2012 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Birmingham UK. Head on over to the Auto Assembly Homepage for more information! We hope to see you there!

By way of 2005 Boards Podcast member Gogdog via Twitter from TFcon 2012 we have a nice in-hand look at the TFC Toys DLSR (Dynamic Link Scout Robots) aka unofficial Reflector for you. According to Gogdog these look good in person, with the black and purple molded in and the rest of the details done in paint (at least on these test shot versions). The camera lens contains a LED for a light up function, and the back, arm, and leg panels have different mold details.

Read on and check out all the images as tweeted by our very own Gogdog!
