TFW Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on July 01 '12 at 07:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got another gallery of the newly released Transformers Fall of Cybertron toys to share with you now friends! Up next is the big bot himself, Optimus Prime. He's got a new barrel chested heroic look for Transformers Fall of Cybertron and a toy of the new look to go with it. Like Jazz who we shared a gallery of with you yesterday, Optimus is very much simplified in terms of transformation when compared to past toys, such as his War for Cybertron incarnation. This is not a bad thing at all though because the transformation is not even slightly frustrating, like some more complicated toys have been, and his poseability is nothing short of incredible. There's a lot of good movement in this toy, and thanks to the design of the feet he balances very well.

Open the link below to check out our gallery and some of the many poses this new version of Optimus Prime can strike. He's a really fun toy, certainly one both kids and fans alike can enjoy.

World Hobby Fair 2012 Pictures & Arms Microns Dark Matter Calibre In Hand
Posted by News Fetcher on July 01 '12 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This weekend is the World Hobby Fair in Japan, and Takara-Tomy has a booth there showing off a lot of their upcoming releases. Unlike the Tokyo Toy Show there is no massive surprise reveal of upcoming toys - however the first six Arms Micron Single Packs are on show and all are looking particularly sharp. There's also the campaign prize toys of a golden chromed Arms Micron Optimus Prime and Hades (from Darkness Megatron) along with a sound base on show.

There's also a new Cybertron Satellite campaign Prime thrown in for good measure, this one with a head inpired by the Great Robot Base of Diaclone fame.

All pictures attached to this post come to you courtesy of 2005 Boards member Masabon. Masabon also got the first three Arms Micron single packs, which were being sold early at this event and has shared some in-hand pictures of these with us.

Read on to check out all of the pictures both of the event and of the three Arms Microns who combine to form the "Dark Matter Calibre" sword.

Toyworld TW-H01 Hardhead Announced
Posted by News Fetcher on July 01 '12 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toyworld, makers of the unofficial Generation 1 Megatron Hegamon have unveiled a new project. Concept artwork here shows they plan to tackle a Headmaster next - with a Generation 1 style Hardhead. The concepts show a robot design in the same style as Hegemon - a design very clearly pulling in Hasbro's original Hardhead design, with a few design tweaks to make some elements function with full articulation.

Please note this is an unofficial product and is not endorsed or licensed by Hasbro or Takara-Tomy.

TFW Fall of Cybertron Autobot Jazz Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 30 '12 at 04:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got a little treat for you now. You might recall earlier this week that we reported on the first assortment of the new Generations Fall of Cybertron toys hitting retail in Asia. The assortment is made up of Optimus Prime, Shockwave and Autobot Jazz as they appear in the new game from High Moon Studios. Well, luck was on my side because I've got all three of the new toys in hand! Since fellow fans have focused a lot of love on Optimus and Shockwave so far, I thought I'd start with a look at the underdog of the assortment, Jazz.

Fall of Cybertron Jazz is a rather cool little design. He's decently articulated (no waist and his head movement is a little limited) but the robot mode is quite pleasing to mess about with. The transformation is clever, simple and intuitive - perhaps too simple compared to past toys, but it delivers on two good modes. Overall while he might be the least of the assortment's three new toys, Jazz is still worth checking out once he reaches retail near you.

As always pictures speak volumes, so with great pride I kick off our galleries for this new Transformers toy line - open that link below to check out our gallery of Fall of Cybertron Jazz.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Holy new toy release Batman! We've got not one but two hot new Transformers toy releases to report on! First of all, in sleek black with yellow accents it is the new Kre-O Stealth Bumblebee set. He's the first to make it to retail in the US so far from the new assortment of sets. He was found in Kmart on Addison, Illinois - seems like K-Mart is the place to check lately for new toys!

Second there's also good news for the fans of the Bot Shots - the two new three packs have arrived on US store shelves. The air set of Jetfire, Powerglide and Skyquake and the ground forces set of Shockwave, Brawl and Ironhide have just been spotted as well. These were also found in the same Kmart on Addison, Il.

Happy hunting everyone! We've had a great run of luck on new toy releases lately - who knows what might turn up next?

Fansproject Warbot Assaulter Prototype Photos
Posted by News Fetcher on June 29 '12 at 10:30 AM
By process from TFW2005:
The Fansproject community site FansProjectCore has posted the first prototype photos of Warbot Assaulter. Linework was only recently revealed, and a rendering on the Core shows that this is indeed an homage to the triple-changer G1 Broadside. The photos reveal robot mode, one of presumably two vehicle modes, and size comparisons with the Assaulter's Warbot comrades, Defender and Steel Core.

All the photos have been mirrored after the jump for those who are not members of the FansProjectCore website.

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Two legends are about to meet. The news buzzing around the Web is that Larry King is going to interview Peter Cullen at the San Diego Comic-Con 2012.

The Hub officially announced this via Facebook:

“Friday, July 13, “OPTIMUS PRIME: Up Close and Personal” (6:00 p.m., Room 23ABC)

The incomparable Larry King, one of the most recognized broadcast interviewers in the world, goes one-on-one with voice actor Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime), a talent who is practically synonymous with Comic-Con itself. In this panel, "The King of Interviews" salutes the beloved Cullen and takes attendees through the actor's early days on the original 1984 animated TV series “Transformers Generation One,” the three box office smash Transformers movies, and his current work on The Hub TV network's Daytime Emmy® Award-winning animated series “Transformers Prime” from Hasbro Studios. Audience Q&A to follow.”


The Hub at SDCC will also feature other popular franchises including Aquabats, Dan vs. and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

Hopefully, this will be the day we hear the return of Transformers: Prime.

More new Transformers toy sightings for you now. Airachnid and the Cyberverse vehicles hit store shelves last week, and this week, it's time for the big guns!

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Whenever Hasbro applies for a new Trademark, there is a chance that we’ll most probably see or hear about it at some point later. It may take few days or maybe even years (Mind you, Airachnid’s toy was revealed more than three years after the Trademark application).

United States Patent And Trademark Office reveals a new Hasbro Trademark titled “Combiners”.

The trademark is categorized under the same description given to any other Transformers Trademark:
“Toy action figures, toy vehicles and toy robots convertible into other visual toy forms”

You can find more details at USPTO and keep it up with TFW2005 for latest news… first.

Transformers Prime Arms Micron Darkness Megatron and Jet Vehicon Official Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
More and more! Next up on the Japanese Transformers front are more images of next month's new Transformers Prime Arms Micron releases. First is Darkness Megatron with his two Arms Microns, one of whom forms an utterly wicked scythe and demonic wings for the robot mode. He's the Japanese release of the mainline Voyager Class Megatron - the Arms Microns and added chrome make a new robot of him though.

Also released are official images of the Jet Vehicon, a completely reshelled version of the popular car type Vehicon - this one is a rather cool flying car design, with a winged robot mode.

These images come at you by way of Amazon Japan! There's also pictures up of the next two EZ Collection releases, Ultra Magnus and Medic Knock Out with Energon Driller, but these are the same as the official pictures for the Hasbro release.
