Transformers United EX Story Chapters 5 and 6 Translated
Posted by News Fetcher on November 12 '12 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our fellow fans at The Allspark have shared translations of the next two chapters of the Transformers United EX story. Chapter 5, The Dragon pays his dues and Chapter 6, Destruction and Regeneration. Story chapter 5, published on the box for Grim Master, introduces the character of Grim Master into the story. His chapter reveals that he's an ex-Decepticon who was once saved by an Autobot commander, and eventually joined the Autobot side to protect the Earth that is precious to him and repay his debt. He's a reformed version of the Dinoforce member Kakuryu from Transformers Victory - his chapter also features references to another former Decepticon ally, Clouder aka Doubleclouder from Masterforce!

Story chapter 6, Destruction and Regeneration, throws Road Master into the mix. A powerful mercenery hired by the Decepticon's new leader referred to only as "the High Regent", it is revealed that he is also a Junkion who betrayed his home world - he is a new form of the E-Hobby character, Detritus!

There's also a return of the lineart style for the inner box tray artwork. Click on the thumbnail at left to check it out.

TFW Transformers Prime Arms Micron Ironhide Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on November 11 '12 at 07:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with another Transformers toy gallery. Today we are sharing with you a gallery of Transformers Prime Arms Micron Ironhide.

Ironhide was released back at the end of September in Japan. He's a recolored version of Prime Sergeant Kup - unlike a lot of other Arms micron releases, Ironhide did not get any remolding to add extra ports for Arms Microns. He looks fantastic in the red and black - I would go as far as to say this is the deco that Kup should always have been released in, because it fits the design so much better than Kup's green. Ironhide like all Arms Micron releases comes with a sheet of stickers in lieu of paint apps, but he barely needs them because he looks good with or without the stickers. A cute touch is the inclusion of a "bullet hole" sticker if you want to customize the look of your Ironhide (or indeed any Transformer) with a war-wound.

Ironhide's partner Micron is I.R., a well-built orange Micron who turns into Ironhide's signature cannon. He's a fun little robot and looks equally good attached to Ironhide's arm or hand-held, but his true strength comes out when you combine him with other Arms Microns, like B.H. and C.L., and he forms some suitably oversized heavy weapons for the Autobot weapons specialist.

Michael Bay Talks Transformers 4 Plot, Mark Wahlberg And Shia
Posted by News Fetcher on November 10 '12 at 08:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Despite mixed reaction from fans, the entertainment industry is praising director Michael Bay on selecting actor Mark Wahlberg for Transformers 4. According to MTV:

"It's an absolutely brilliant move," MTV Geek editor Valerie Gallaher tells MTV News of Wahlberg's casting. "It'll keep this franchise fresh."

"The guy can act - as anyone who has seen 'Boogie Nights' or 'The Departed' can attest to," agrees Brian Truitt with USA Today. "And he brings sort of an exasperated 'Come on, alien robots, are you kidding me?!' vibe that would make for a great and different dynamic."


Meanwhile TMZ contacted the director via phone. Find out what Mr. Bay had to say about Transformers 4 Plot, Mark Wahlberg's Character And Shia's Comments, after the jump.

Mark Wahlberg Confirmed for Transformers 4, First Teaser Logo Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '12 at 06:45 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
After much speculation regarding who would be cast in the upcoming fourth live-action Transformers movie, Micheal Bay has confirmed on his website that Mark Wahlberg has been signed on for Transformers 4.

HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 8, 2012) – After an exceptionally successful collaboration on the upcoming “Pain and Gain,” Michael Bay has cast Academy Award®-nominee Mark Wahlberg in the highly anticipated “TRANSFORMERS 4.” The film will hit theaters June 27th, 2014.

“Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on “Pain and Gain” and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers’ legacy,” said Bay.
Bay will direct the next installment in the “TRANSFORMERS” series, which begins shooting next spring. From Paramount Pictures, a division of Viacom, Inc., in association with Hasbro, the film will be produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce, and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian.

Bay’s first “TRANSFORMERS” film was a box office sensation in 2007, opening at #1 and earning more than $700 million worldwide. His second installment “TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN” in 2009 grossed more than $830 million worldwide. In 2011, “TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON” was an even bigger hit worldwide, grossing more than a billion dollars to become the 5th highest grossing film of all time. To date, the franchise has earned more than $2.6 billion worldwide.


On the same story, we also have our first look at a logo for Transformers 4, which has been attached to this news story for your viewing pleasure. Don't forget to stay tuned here to TFW2005, as we bring you the latest Transformers Movie news as it happens.

TFW Transformers Prime Cyberverse Ultra Magnus, Skyquake & Nightwatch Optimus Prime Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '12 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got three more galleries to share with you now! We are rounding out our gallery coverage of the Transformers Prime Cyberverse Commanders with a look at three of the four releases in Prime Cyberverse Commander Wave 3 and 4 - Nightwatch Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus and Skyquake!

All three are pretty cool little toys. Nightwatch Optimus Prime is a redeco of the initial Commander Optimus Prime release, and were it not for his faceplateless head would actually make a decent representation of Nemesis Prime with his overall more dull deco and yellow eyes. Ultra Magnus is a cool little robot, complete with his Magnus hammer, and an unfortunately exposure of his thighs in vehicle mode. Lastly Skyquake is an awesome redeco of Dreadwing, with new weapons, just like the character in the show. He's the first representation of the one-shot villain to get a toy, and he's a worthy addition.

Check out the galleries of the three by opening the links below:

Transformers Legends Mobile Game Starscream Artwork
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '12 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted the artwork of Starscream from the upcoming Transformers Legends game for mobile devices. The game, powered by Mobage, is currently taking pre-registration - find out more here. It is set to feature a wide variety of classic characters, all reimagined to varying degrees - Starscream as you might deduce from this art is more closely based on his Generation 1 toy, with the seam for his arms in his fuselage and the wing-mounted weapons featuring the same projectiles as his Generation 1 release.

CrazyDevy Predaking Thighs and Piranacon Feet
Posted by News Fetcher on November 08 '12 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
CrazyDevy have revealed their next two upgrade sets for the vintage Generation 1 Transformers combiners - some rather expensive new hips for Predaking, and new feet (on balljoints) for Piranacon. The picture for the Predaking set does not give much away about the new hips other than that they are bigger, but it does show the assembled upgrades on Predaking. Your mileage may vary on how much these kits are actually needed though.

Hasbro not in talks with Disney
Posted by News Fetcher on November 07 '12 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
On the back of the recent rumors that talks were underway between Hasbro and Disney about a possible Disney buyout of Hasbro, the Providence Journal reports a spike in Hasbro share prices. More importantly, there is also the closest we are likely to get to an official comment on matters right now:

Hasbro declined comment [in the Disney purchase rumor], citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. CNBC analyst David Faber reported that Hasbro's advisors told him there's "absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form" involving Hasbro or Disney.

Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn't make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. And for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney's competitors.


So there you have it. For now, consider the rumors of a Disney buyout debunked.

Can't wait for another triple changer? According to FansProject, Assaulter(their modernized take on G1 Broadside) will be released on November 30. However, it seems that some lucky fans were able to score this new figure early as some rather impressive in-hand images have surfaced here!

To date, this is the largest figure FansProject has ever produced. Assaulter is roughly the size of a voyager class figure give or take, and has 4 modes of transformation. Check out how this figure turned out after the jump!

Staff Note: This kit is an unofficial product not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara/Tomy.
