Kre-O Toys R Us Devastator with Ironhide Two Pack
Posted by News Fetcher on August 20 '12 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's an interesting new sighting for you. Popping up now in Toys R Us stores is our first store exclusive Kre-O Transformers set. This set takes the mammoth Devastator set - the four robots combining into a single giant - and then bundles in a special, exclusive to this set Kre-O Ironhide. Kre-O Ironhide takes a few cues from his Transformers Prime design and looks very sharp. This set also includes the yellow Generation 2 Devastator Kreon that we first found out about last week. It's out in Toys R Us right now, priced at $94.99, and the first sightings are in the North Riverside Il TRU.

TFW Generations Powerdive and Hunt for the Decepticons Highbrow Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on August 19 '12 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It's a two for one bonus in our latest gallery update! Not only are we bringing you a look at the Generations Powerdive Voyager Class toy, recently released in Asia and due for a release as a Toys R Us Exclusive in the US shortly, but we also have a gallery for you of the original version of the mold, Highbrow!

This twin prop plane mold is a real "love it or hate it" design. The arms are admittedly the weak spot in robot mode, yet they also have a certain style that seems especially appropriate for Powerdive - the fists can tuck away and allow the arms to convert into full on rotor arms like the 2007 Movie Incinerator. The legs, thanks to the tail fins acting as poseable toes, can strike and hold some great and dynamic poses. The heads on both releases are modeled for actual plane pilots - Highbrow has a very "Biggles" inspired head (just add scarf) while Powerdive gets more of an oxygen mask look. The plane modes are a great design, a twin prop plane design very rarely seen among transforming robot toys.

Powerdive is an oddity though for being released in the Generations series, a line strongly thought of as Classics, when his design, mostly real world deco and headsculpt all make him look right at home on a movieverse shelf. Regardless of where you stand him in your collection, he is a good fun toy, as was Highbrow before him.

Open the links below to check out both galleries!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
There is a saying where I am from "you wait ages for a bus to arrive, then three turn up at once". Evidently this is also true for Transformers toys because we've been waiting a while for the new assortment of Bot Shot Launchers and now two have both been sighted! Bot Shots Launcher Wave 2 featuring Ironhide and Wave 3 featuring Starscream have both been sighted at US retail in the Warminster, PA Walmart.

Happy hunting everyone!

Generations Arms Micron Gaia Unicron Giftset & Year of the Snake Omega Supreme
Posted by News Fetcher on August 18 '12 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of user 9981 on HK-TF, we have a pair of rather interesting pictures to share with you right now.

The first, being released under the Generations banner, is a Transformers Prime two pack consisting of the upcoming Gaia Unicron and Arms Micron Optimus Prime. The two as previously teased can combine, this giftset release gives you both arts of the combiner in a single box. It's also a great new look at the Gaia Unicron figure, our clearest so far. Given the Generations banner, it is entirely likely this will be another Asian market exclusive.

Second is a new image of the Chinese New Year special, the Year of the Snake Omega Supreme. The new image is not giving a lot away - Energon Omega Supreme is shown in the image, unaltered from his release in 2004, although it is possible given that this is the stock photo from the Energon release that this is just a placeholder.

Transformers Collectors Club Subscription Service Now Live - Botcon Slides Released
Posted by News Fetcher on August 17 '12 at 02:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's a quick follow on from the news earlier about the terms for the Transformers Collector's Club Subscription Service - it's live!

Head on over to the Transformers Collector's Club Homepage to read the terms and get in on the ground floor of the subscription service. Remember to read the terms - you need to be a member, and you can either pay by installments or pay the whole thing in one lump sum.

An update from earlier is that the figures will not ship in pairs - that's an artifact left over from the similarly-worded GI Joe terms and conditions - these will ship individually, so you get six toys at various points through the year (seven if you want to count Depth Charge, the membership freebie)

Remember, there is no need to rush to get your order in as these are made to order. If you get your order in by the cut-off date, midnight on 10 September 2012, you will receive the set of six toys.

Lastly the slides from Botcon showing off the six toys have been posted on Facebook, if you want a clear look at what you are getting with the subscription. Check out the six - Prime Slipstream, Classics Circuit, Beast Wars Ultra Mammoth, Animated Jackpot, Universe Classics Breakdown and Generations Robots in Disguise Scourge. Remember if you only want one of these six figures, singles may be available through the Transformers Collectors Club, but at a higher price than they work out at through the subscription.

It's a brand-new season of the Emmy Award-winning series Crave Online calls the show "die-hard fans have always wanted.

A review for the just released IGear PPO5 Weapons Specialists has been posted over on ACToys. This review shows a new cross sell sheet for Igear's Miniwarriors line. Shown in the Cross sell sheet are Igear's Rager, Spray, Hench, UFO and the upcoming Cogz. New figures shown are Dunerunner (Not-Beachcomber), Bushwacker (Not-Outback) and a repaint of Cogz in a Swerve deco! While we can't see the name for the Swerve figure, one can only hope it's "Shut-the-hell-up".

TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE ONGOING #11

(W) James Roberts (A) Alex Milne (CA) Alex Milne, Nick Roche
SHADOWLAND CONCLUDES! And it’s the end of an era when, on pre-war CYBERTRON, enemies close in on all sides and Orion Pax – the future OPTIMUS PRIME – selects a team of AUTOBOTS to help him pull off the ultimate heist – with the fate of the planet hanging in the balance!

TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE ONGOING #11

(W) John Barber (A) Guido Guidi (CA) Casey Coller, Andrew Griffith
CYBERTRON IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE! Tensions ratchet up between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS as violence breaks out in the heart of the city… and PROWL looks for someone to blame. Is DIRGE a convenient target-or the key to what comes next? Plus… an old friend comes back home.

TRANSFORMERS PRIME RAGE O/T DINOBOTS #1 (OF 4)

(W) Mike Johnson, Mairghread Scott (A) Agustin Padilla (CA) Ken Christiansen
Bridging the story from the Fall of Cybertron video game to the Prime TV show-the DINOBOTS hold the line as CYBERTRON falls! With OPTIMUS PRIME and the Ark long gone, the rest of the population makes their escape from the dying world-but SHOCKWAVE remains behind, continuing his experiments!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Collector's Club has released an update about the upcoming Subscription Service on Facebook. The key points of the announcement are as follows:

You need to be a member to take part

Figures are built to order, no purchase limit

Closing date is 10 September 2012

You can pay in full up front ($282 + $3 processing fee + shipping) or by three installments ($94 + $3 processing per installment + shipping)

Figures will ship in a random order and will not be announced, as they want it to be a surprise.

Single figures may be available, but there is no guarantee on availability. The individual cost will also be much higher.

The ship date of the first figures has yet to be confirmed but is thought to be sometime in January.

Read on for the full text from the TFCC. They've also posted a small image of Scourge in robot mode which you can see attached to this story.

Many months ago, we reported a teaser photo of TFC Hercules parts cast in Shattered Glass Devastator colors. Today, we finally have some photos from ACTOYS.net, of the complete Hercules including the Rage of Hercules add-on in an SG deco. The new deco is being dubbed Perses.

By process from TFW2005:
Photos have surfaced over at ACTOYS.net of new color prototypes of the first two members of TFC Uranus. A silhouette in the background shows what appears to be an SR-71 Blackbird, and should be the next aerial team member reveal.

It is also being reported that Uranus will deviate slightly from the five-member team he's based on, and may include a sixth figure. Will this be a new airplane-former, or an accessory pack akin to TFC's recently released Rage of Hercules set? Head over to the discussion thread to share your thoughts!
