Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots Q&A with Mike Johnson and Mairghread Scott
Posted by News Fetcher on October 23 '12 at 09:30 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The Transformers Facebook page has updated with an interview with the writers of the upcoming Transformers Rage of the Dinobots comic book mini-series coming next month from IDW publishing. Writers for the Transformers Prime television show, Mike Johnson and Mairghread Scott, will be writing this new series and in the case of Mairghread, this is the first time a woman has written a Transformers Comic.

Most interesting part of this article, there are many tidbits regarding how this book will be foreshadowing the upcoming third season of Transformers Prime. More evidence suggesting the Dinobots will show up on the Hub? You decide.

You can read the full interview by clicking the link above or clicking on the title bar. Also attached is our first look at artist Nick Roche's retailer incentive cover!

Mark Wahlberg In Talks for Transformers 4?
Posted by News Fetcher on October 23 '12 at 09:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Feel it! Feel it! Comingsoon.net has posted an article stating that actor Mark Wahlberg (Ted, The Happening, The Other Guys) has been in talks with Transformers 4 director Michael Bay about possibly starring in the next installment of our beloved franchise. The article goes onto state this as a distinct possibility, as the two have just come off working together on the upcoming film Pain and Gain. Director Michael Bay was quick to reply to this news, posting on his website: "The Mark Wahlberg T4 rumor is just a rumor. Mark and I are talking about another film project". Bay is quick to not confirm or deny the rumor.

Interesting side not to this story; Mark sings Stan Bush's power rock song from the 1986 Transformers film, "You Got The Touch" in 1997's Boogie Nights.

Transformers Prime Arms Micron Capsule Toys Getting Blind Packed UK Release?
Posted by News Fetcher on October 23 '12 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is an oddity for you - the cool Transformers Prime Arms Micron Capsule Toys series just might be seeing them light of day outside of Japan. A recent catalog update (PDF link) for UK retailer Esdevium Games - distributor of hobby products including board games, collectible card games and other goodies - included on its final page under toys and collectibles a listing for "Transformers Figure Packet", showing a picture of the Arms Micron capsule toy Optimus Prime and a previously unseen blindbag packaging featuring the Transformers Prime logo and pictures of the six toys in the first assortment of Transformers Prime Capsule Toys.

This would seem to indicate that at the very least the UK might be getting the first series of Arms Micron Capsule Toys at retail, marking the first release of these toys outside of Japan. However, Hasbro UK has stated they have no plans to release these items, creating some confusion. Although if you read into the product codes, you can see the first three letters on the page correspond to the manufacturer (TOP = Topps, for example). These are listed as TOM - possible shorthand for Tomy? Stranger things have happened - ultimately until we have a confirmed purchase at retail in the UK or elsewhere, this is only a possible release, but it seems likely given the popularity of blind-packed impulse buy items at the checkouts in UK supermarkets.

It's time for the hunt to begin again for Canadian Transformers fans! Thanks to TFW2005 and Cybertron.CA boards member Cheers Ian, we now have a sighting of Fall of Cybertron/Generations Wave 2 Deluxes in Canada! This wave, which includes the retail release of the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons, was sighted at a Walmart in Ontario. Collecting all five of the Combaticons allows you to BUILD GIANT ROBOT (As per the packaging's command) to form Bruticus.

TFW2005 Coverage Of Hasbro 2012 Q3 Earnings Call - Fate Of Transformers: Prime Series
Posted by News Fetcher on October 22 '12 at 09:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Here we are with TFW2005 Coverage of Hasbro 2012 3rd Quarter Earnings Conference Call.

Unfortunately, no major future plans were told about our beloved franchise, unlike last time. The reason for this may have been NYCC 2012 where Hasbro revealed much of their 2013 plans. Profits are down 4% last quarter and Hasbro wishes to return the “U.S. & Canada segment” to historical operating profit margins in the coming year. You can read all about this thanks to the Press Release our 2005 Boards member Hot Shot sharing with us.

However, there are things not written in black and white… things that may not look that big nor create a heavy impact. However, these little things matter to us; The Fans. What was said at the call will most definitely impact the current Transformers Animation Series; Transformers: Prime. What is it? Find out, after the jump.

Takara-Tomy Upcoming Transformers Releases Magazine Scans
Posted by News Fetcher on October 22 '12 at 12:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of a Japanese image board we have a look at the November edition Japanese Hobby magazine scans. These pictures show a lot of Takara-Tomy's upcoming Transformers figures releases including the Masterpieces and November releases in the United EX and Prime Arms Micron lines.

Kicking off with the Transformers Prime news, there is our first look at Arms Micron Smokescreen, who is a white Knock Out retooled with a spoiler and probasbly a new head. He's not particularly show accurate but right now he's the only mainline Smokescreen toy out there. The Arms Micron Nemesis Prime and CyLAS Breakdown are also shown, black recolors of Arms Micron Optimus Prime and War Breakdown respectively. There's also a box out for the Transformers Prime Lucky Draws including the chrome First Edition Arcee, golden Arms Micron Optimus Prime and golden Hades (Darkness Megatron's bat Micron) plus two more previously unseen Arms Microns which we assume are to be runner-up prizes in a future campaign draw - a translucent blue plastic version of Bumblebee's B.2. and a similarly translucent blue version of Knock Out's Arms Micron crab Gra. Japan's release of Weaponizer Bumblebee with its own gray plastic B.2. plus the EZ Collection Autobot and Decepticon team sets round out the coverage on Prime toys.

On the United EX front, there is a fresh look at the third and so far final assortment of toys, including the Devastator colored Steamhammer Builder Master, the Autobot black Huffer / Crankcase recolor Assault Master, and the two pack of Tank Master and Marine Master.

In addition to all of this there is some coverage of the upcoming Masterpiece releases including the cassettes, Soundwave, Sideswipe and Red Alert, the Encore reissue Fortress Maximus and Devastator Animation Version, plus in a small boxout there is extra coverage of the Japanese Transformers Generations Fall of Cybertron releases.

Transformers United EX Weapons of a New Generation Story Chapter Translated
Posted by News Fetcher on October 21 '12 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our fellow fans over at The Allspark have translated the next chapter of the Transformers United EX story. Chapter four is titled "Weapons of a New Generation" and comes with the Autobot Racemaster. The story chapter depicts a battle between the super-fast young Autobot and the Decepticon Combatmaster, previously revealed to be a reincarnated Decepticon Onslaught.

As with the previous chapters, the identities of the new characters - who are all going by codenames - is not fully spelled out. But hints are given - and reading the hints suggests that Racemaster is the Generation 2 Autobot, Rapido! Racemaster, like Rapido, is blessed with enhanced speed but also the ability to think calmly and clearly when moving at those high speeds. He's a new Autobot with great potential for future leadership (as seen by Rapido's G2 toy outranking Optimus Prime) and a penchant for slipping Spanish into his dialog. The title of the story, implying Racemaster is a part of a new generation (or "next / second generation") is the icing on the cake.

Yes, in 2012 London hosted the Olympics, and in 2013 it will play host to Michael Bay shooting the fourth Transformers movie. It might not be on the same level but it is certainly going to be interesting to see how it plays out.

Prime Arms Micron Orion Pax In Hand Images

Alfes2000 has uploaded a gallery of the other Japanese store exclusive Transformer that has recently been released, Orion Pax. Marking the first-ever release of the Deluxe class First Edition mold in Japan, Orion does not feature the "mouthless" head, and is essentially a release of the Deluxe toy in more muted colors than the US one - just how much more muted can be appreciated when you see this side by side with the toy released in the US, particularly on the blue parts.

Orion Pax also comes with a gold chrome version of Ratchet's R.A. Arms Micron, a nice inclusion which looks very shiny but has no real story connection with Orion Pax.

Check out the full gallery here.

Possible Arms Micron Release for Weaponizer Bumblebee

Autobase Aichi on Facebook has posted some new photos of one of the displays at the Dengeki 20th Anniversary Festival. The store exclusives display case showcases the recently released Arms Micron Thundercracker and Orion Pax, alongside a toy not previously confirmed for a Japanese release, Weaponizer Bumblebee.

On show in these pictures, Weaponizer Bumblebee is pictured with the blaster accessory from his US release in addition to the Japanese Arms Micron B.2., which has come with previous releases of Bumblebee in Japan. The toy does not seem to have any additional hardpoints molded on to attach Arms Microns compared to those already there on the US release. The toy's deco seems to be a lot shinier, like the shiny paints used on the Japanese release of Transformers Animated Bumblebee.

Given this is on display with other store exclusive releases from the Transformers Prime line, it is possible that this is a store exclusive release. We've not got any details one way or the other yet, so stay tuned for more news as it becomes available.
