Transformers Henkei Ultra Magnus, Asia Exclusive Release, Late September 2012
Posted by News Fetcher on August 27 '12 at 01:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
There's been some buzz around lately - with auctions for purported leaked toys on Taobao and assumed early releases - that Takara-Tomy was revisiting Transformers Henkei one more time to release the Classics Ultra Magnus for its market complete with full white legs like the Generation 1 toy. The more skeptical of us were, well, skeptical.

Here's the reality though. Transformers Henkei Ultra Magnus is for real. It's coming out as a new Asia exclusive release, due out late September / early October 2012 - in other words, it's not a revival of the Henkei line by Takara-Tomy but an Asian market exclusive, like a growing number of items recently.

If you would like a Generation 1 accurate version of Classics Ultra Magnus, it's up for preorder now at Robot Kingdom.

TFW Transformers Prime Terrorcon Bumblebee Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on August 26 '12 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
To finish up the week, we're bringing you a gallery of the Transformers Prime Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee figure. Terrorcon Bumblebee here was an Aeon stores exclusive in Japan and by accounts a relatively harder to find Japanese store exclusive owing to the smaller numbers of stores compared to Toys R Us Japan. He's a fantastic black redeco of Bumblebee who looks great with or without his stickers. The head sculpt looks particularly great in this deco with the black and the purple eyes giving the toy a really evil feel. He also comes with a different Micron to the initial release, Terrorcon Zori, a clear purple version of Soundwave's Arms Micron partner. It's a cool addition and I like the clear purple, though the size of the tentacle whip mode is a bit cumbersome in my view.

All in all, Terrorcon Bumblebee is a very cool little recolor. The black deco looks extremely sharp, and the inclusion of a new Arms Micron sets him apart from the first version. He's only a straight redeco of the regular Bumblebee though, so all the pros and cons of that toy carry over to this exclusive version.

That's enough out of me though, open the link below and check out the gallery!

Posted by News Fetcher on August 24 '12 at 01:15 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
And now for something completely different.

Earlier this month, we ran a story about a promotion that High Moon Studios and Ford Australia ran on their Facebook page, asking fans to help create the first Australian-created Transformer.

And now, the result of the promotion has been revealed, via the gaming website Player Attack, with art of the Australian Autobot known as Falcatron, who turns into a Cybertron-inspired Falcon XR6 Turbo Sedan. As announced and confirmed in the prior news story, this will be only a piece of concept art and there no plans to add this to the game through DLC.

Transformers Prime Episode 46 Legacy
Posted by News Fetcher on August 24 '12 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Zap2it has updated with another new listing for an upcoming Transformers Prime episode. The episode is titled Legacy and is airing on 21 September 2012 - and that's it, there's no description for this one at this time.

Your guess is as good as ours on what the "legacy" referred to might be - perhaps some hidden secret from the past of the Transformers, as was the case in the Thundercats episode titled legacy, or perhaps it could refer to the lasting impact of a character who has passed on. One thing is for sure - it's probably got nothing to do with the classic Simon Furman Generation 1 story arc "Legacy of Unicron", but on the other hand, Unicron has appeared in this series...

Perfect Effect PE-12 Assault Force X and PE-DX02
Posted by News Fetcher on August 24 '12 at 06:45 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
3rd party group, Perfect Effect have updated their blog with teases for two upcoming products. The first, a remold release of their popular Scouting Force X. This time around, the three camera-bots will be given a Generation 1 toy color scheme and new parts such as the chests and heads. The figures also get new names; Vanguard, Sniper and Cannonier . So far, it seems that these may be a Japanese fan convention, transfunket, exclusive, but that's not confirmed just yet. We'll update as more info becomes available.

Also teased is PE-DEX02 shown in cycle mode. This upcoming figure will be a Black Arachnia inspired motorcycle bot and may be an extensive remold of their PE-DX01 Motobot. This figure has been previously teased before, but hopefully new images and information will be available shortly.

By process from TFW2005:
Photos have emerged at ACTOY.net, showing Masterpiece Lambor/Sideswipe out of package and in-hand. The photos aren't big, but they are clear and convey an excellent sense of what we can expect from the final retail product. The packaging is compact, follows the standard Takara Masterpiece format, and displays the Lamborghini logo prominently.

MP-12 is due out towards the entire of this year.
