BotCon 2013 Set Theme Revealed: Machine Wars!
Posted by News Fetcher on December 03 '12 at 10:00 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
After a long wait, a copy of the Transformers Collector's Club Magazine has reached the hands of the fandom. Thanks to a thread over on The Allspark, it has been revealed that the theme of the BotCon 2013 set is...

Machine Wars!

As announced at BotCon 2012, this year's story takes place in the TFCC's Wings of Honor universe after the events of their Generation 2 stories. What toys could possibly be included in this set? For that matter where and when will BotCon 2013 be? Swing on by the ongoing thread and speculate away by clicking the discuss link below.

UPDATE: According to The Allspark user, Walky, the comic inside the magazine itself also gives a bit of a teaser on just who may be in the set.

Silhouettes of MW Soundwave, Megatron, and Starscream standing over a wrecked RTS Laser Prime and e-Hobby Galvatron II. These "Machine Wars" are a premonition of the future as seen by Sizzle.

Transformers United Artfire New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on December 03 '12 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Million Hero has posted some new images of their Generations 2012 book mail-in Artfire. Artfire is a remolded version of Universe Inferno with the crane arm from Grapple, to allow him to attach his two Targermaster partners as a water cannon in vehicle mode. There's also a demonstration of how two combined Targetmasters make one really interesting gun for the robot mode.

Even more pictures are posted over here, which also gives the release date: 17 December 2012, due to arrive in (Japanese) fans hands around Boxing Day. The page also has a couple of very nice pictures comparing the new United Artfire and Stepper with their extremely sought after Generation 1 counterparts.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Facebook group Meteor Operation has posted a couple of images showing a prototype of what they are calling "War Lord Beasticons", an unofficial and unlicensed Predaking (not the same as the Mastermind Creations one teased at TFcon in July). The picture shows a detailed robot form, featuring articulated fingers. There's no detail at this time of who is making this, or when they plan on releasing it. And as always, it is not officially licensed or endorsed by Hasbro.

TFW Fall of Cybertron Decepticon Data Disks Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on December 02 '12 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next gallery update, I wish to draw your attention to these galleries of Soundwave's minions from the Generations Fall of Cybertron line by SydneyY. Sold in two sets of two, Rumble & Ravage and Frenzy & Ratbat, these recreate for a new generation of fans the idea of buying two-packs of "minion" toys for Soundwave.

The four data disks - or "Diskrons" as SydneyY has named them - are all pretty much built around the central gimmick of Soundwave / Soundblaster where they deploy from the chest and spring open on impact. They are kind of addictive as far as gimmicks go (it is rather fun to watch them "pop out"), but the gimmick sacrifices poseability on them. Rumble and Frenzy each only get up-down rotational movement on their arms, while Ravage fares a bit better with rotational movement in all his legs as well as mid-leg joints. Ratbat has no articulation at all.

They are, basically, built for the gimmick, and it is a cool one which I personally find quite endearing. If you don't like gimmicks or like your toys poseable, you might want to wait for the Masterpiece cassettes next year. But if you like fun gimmckery and engineering, and like the idea of a Soundwave with minions that is not going to run you into the triple digits when all is said and done, this might be for you.

Check out the four galleries by opening the links below:

Transformers Prime First Edition Voyagers Released at US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on December 02 '12 at 07:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yes indeed folks! At long, long last the Transformers Prime First Edition Voyagers have been released at US retail. They've been out online for a little while now, but this second run of the mind-blowingly awesome First Editions is now beginning to turn up at retail. Voyager Class Optimus Prime and Bulkhead, two of the very best examples of the size class to have ever been designed, were spotted at a TRU in St Louis, MO by 2005 Boards member slackerforhire, who is most certainly not slacking in sharing the good news with us!

Happy hunting everyone! Far be it from this newsie to gush, but these are two of my favorite toys ever made. Hopefully with this second run now hitting retail many of you can get a shot at picking these up and seeing why for yourselves.

TFW Transformers Prime Nemesis Prime Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on December 01 '12 at 06:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Today we are proud to share with you one of our latest Transformers Toy Galleries. Today's spotlight falls on Transformers Prime Arms Micron Nemesis Prime. Nemesis Prime is a false copy of Optimus Prime created by the human villains of Transformers Prime, MECH, and operated by their leader Silas. In the show, Nemesis Prime sported a darker and duller version of Optimus Prime's deco, but for Nemesis Prime the toy, black is the order of the day. Yes, Nemesis Prime is a full-on black repaint, with clear red plastic for the clear parts. He looks very striking in this deco. Out of the box the majority of the toy's stickers are optional ones to give the toy some teal detailing. It's a case where stickers work really well as it allows for a greater degree of customisation.

Nemesis Prime comes with the Arms Micron Giza, a swordfish who turns into a version of Optimus Prime's sword, and goes well with the Nemesis Prime design. It is fairly easy to assemble and features a nice selection of pegs to form larger combination weapons.

Overall, Nemesis Prime is not one for someone seeking show accuracy, but he is extremely fun, and has a nice striking deco. If you are a fan of black repaints, this is one for you.
