Transformers Prime Arms Micron Hell Flame Micron Campaign
Posted by News Fetcher on July 24 '12 at 02:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have updated their Transformers website with details of a new Campaign Micron giveaway. This time out it is a giveaway for four Arms Microns in red (possibly translucent red) "Hell Flame" decos. The four Microns being given away are Zam (from War Breakdown), Glu (from Starscream), Nozi (from Vehicon) and Jida (from Terrorcon Cliffjumper).

Details on the campaign indicate this will be a case of spending 3'000 or more yen on Transformers Prime merchandise on 28 July at participating Japanese stores to receive one of these. The timing and theme suggests this campaign is to mark the release of the demonic-looking Darkness Megatron, who is due for a release around the same time in Japan.

Hasbro Masterpiece Optimus Prime Will Cost You $99.99
Posted by News Fetcher on July 24 '12 at 12:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some excellent sleuthing by 2005 Boards member jru42287 has turned up the pricepoint for the Hasbro release of MP-10 Convoy Version 2, Masterpiece Optimus Prime, in a store computer system. According to jru42287's information Masterpiece Optimus Prime will set you back $99.99 when he is released.

Considering that importing a Takara-Tomy version would set you back almost twice as much and Hasbro's release is going to come with everything from the Takara-Tomy one, this is a good deal for all looking forward to this release.

Impossible Toys to make Unofficial Generation 1 Tetrajets
Posted by News Fetcher on July 23 '12 at 11:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Impossible Toys have updated their homepage with some early CGI renders showing a new project; a Seeker-styled robot with the Generation 1 More than Meets the Eye Part 1 Cybertronian Tetrajet alternate mode. The render does not give away much in terms of how these pyramid fighters will transform, other than the fact that we are probably looking at a design that makes use of a lot of panels if those wings are anything to go by.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime Compared with Takara-Tomy MP-10 Convoy Version 2
Posted by News Fetcher on July 23 '12 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of Planet Iacon on Facebook and ACToys we have a look at the Hasbro version of the new Masterpiece Optimus Prime compared to the Takara-Tomy MP-10 Convoy Version 2. Hasbro's release comes with much lighter colors especially noticeable on the blue sections and features more paint on Spike (such as on his eyes and sleeves). Compared to the Japanese release which featured a gray Roller, the US release gets a blue Roller.

Rumor - Masterpiece Optimus Prime to see a Wide Release
Posted by News Fetcher on July 23 '12 at 10:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An interesting piece of news has been sent our way by 2005 Boards member Movie PRIME. He has heard from a Hasbro customer services representative that the new version of Masterpiece Optimus Prime, the domestic release of Takara-Tomy's MP-10 Convoy Version 2, will be available more widely than was originally speculated, and will potentially be carried by K-Mart, Target and Wal-Mart as well as Toys R Us.

Take this with all due scepticism, as no official release information has been released from Hasbro on this item (on the other hand, the two times it has been included in a Hasbro upcoming products display, no reference has been made to exclusivity. Make of that what you will)

Transformers Prime Deluxe Ratchet's Alternate Head is Swerve?
Posted by News Fetcher on July 23 '12 at 10:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is something interesting pointed out to me by 2005 Boards member Junior. Earlier today we got our first look at Arms Micron Swerve, complete with his new head sculpt. As Junior pointed out to me, we have in fact seen the head before - on the instructions of Deluxe Class Ratchet, as the possible alternate head for that mold.

Could it be a coincidence that two unconnected toys both happen to have the same head design? Did someone at Takara-Tomy look at the alternate head for Deluxe Ratchet and say to themselves "yeah, that would look good on our Breakdown". Or is there perhaps a deeper reason for this head design to be getting released in Japan on a toy that Hasbro has confirmed is unworkable for the US market; with the same basic head design then turning up on a mold Hasbro can use, and one with an alternate form reasonably close to that of Breakdown / Arms Micron Swerve.

Two new Hasbro Transformers Trademark Applications - Doom Lock, Anyone?
Posted by News Fetcher on July 23 '12 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our friends over at Transformers @ The Moon have shared with us some recent findings from the USPTO. Hasbro have applied for two new trademarks.

One of these trademarks is for Transformers, under the heading of Entertainment services in the nature of an amusement park ride so this one we know relates to Transformers the Ride.

The other is under the usual category for toy registration, and this one is for Doom Lock. For those who can remember the Transformers Energon line from 2004-5, Doom-Lock was a dinosaur Transformer, a redeco of Cruellock. Since the only history of the name is connected to dinosaur Transformers, and we've got a new toy of Grimlock in the pipeline for Transformers Fall of Cybertron, could this trademark application be in anticipation of an evil redeco of Grimlock?

Stay tuned for more news as it emerges.

Auto Assembly 2012 Second Litho Print
Posted by News Fetcher on July 21 '12 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Auto Assembly have unveiled a second litho print which will be given away free to everyone receiving the Auto Assembly 2012 goodie bag. This litho is made to be signed by the three voice actor guests of honor - Townsend Coleman, Paul Eiding and Michael Bell - as it features the Transformers characters that they are best known for voicing.

The good news is that while originally this was planned to be printed on the reverse side of the Galvatron print previously shown, Auto Assembly have listened to fan feedback and are now doing this as a separate print - so if you wish you can display both prints! Best of all, these are being given away completely free to anyone who is getting the Auto Assembly goodie bag - so if you are already pre-registered or have a non-attendee package, you are getting this!

Auto Assembly 2012 is Europe's largest ever Transformers convention, taking place in less than two short weeks time over the weekend of 3-5 August 2012 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel in the UK. Pre-register and find out more at the Auto Assembly homepage.

For the grand finale of our three part Botcon 2012 Toy Galleries update, we are heading to the Classicsverse! Transformers Invasion, the 2012 Boxed set, was a story about how the Shattered Glass Universe and the Classics Universe clashed in a rather spectacular fashion, and so, we bring you now galleries of those toys exclusively available at Botcon 2012 representing the new additions to the Classics universe! Open the links below to check out galleries of Metalhawk, Kick-Over (aka Kickoff), Spinister and Gigatron the Decepticon Overlord (also known as "the monster in the basement"):

Transformers Fall of Cybertron PC Version to Have Full Steamworks Support for Multiplayer

Gamespy has posted a brief article giving a few details on Transformers Fall of Cybertron for the PC. Chief among those details and potentially extremely pleasing for all PC gamers wanting to stomp around with Grimlock: Mercenary Technology is making Transformers Fall of Cybertron for the PC with full Steamworks support for multiplayer.

Mercenary is building Transformers: Fall of Cybertron with Steamworks support for multiplayer -- matchmaking, achievements, community features, the whole nine. Livergood [J.D. Livergood, Activision Associate Producer] also promises enhanced textures, lighting, and shadows to help make the Unreal Engine 3-powered game a visual stunner on PC

It is also stated that we will be able to customize keybindings on the PC port of the game.

All in all it sounds as though Mercenary Technology is working with Activision to deliver more than just a quick cash-in port but a properly crafted game which gives PC gamers the Transformers experience that they deserve. Plus Steamworks support for the multiplayer and achievements, which is a fantastic addition according to this newsie's brother, an avid PC gamer.

Fall of Cybertron for PC is set to be a digital exclusive in the US (there will be a retail release overseas, and the game will be available worldwide on Steam), launching at the same time as the console versions on 21 August, aka next month!
