Transformers GT More Information - Three Super GT Transformers in the Works including Star Saber!
Posted by News Fetcher on October 20 '12 at 03:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of the http://twitpic.com/photos/ToYz80book.com/photo.php?fbid=186387541486435&set=a.172548066203716.17353.171524482972741&type=1&src=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ak-ash4%2F408704_186387541486435_1867718944_n.jpg&size=720%2C960"]Takara-Tomy Facebook page[/URL] and the Twitter account of @ToYz80 we've got a look at the real lineup for the Takara-Tomy Transformers GT series (ignore our post from yesterday, that particular lineup was apparently fake).

Shown off at Dengeki's 20th anniversary festival at Makuhari Messe convention centre are three variants on the remolded Alternity Convoy body type - one as Convoy / Optimus Prime himself, with a green and white version shown representing a Fortress Maximus Super GT and a Star Saber Super GT in blue. The names are apparently GT-R Prime, GT-R Maximus and GT-R Saber respectively.

Check out the images of Saber and Maximus by reading on with this story. There's also three girls pictured in the colors of the three robots - we're not sure if these are meant to be driver / partner figures a la the Binaltech Asterisk / Human Alliance series or merely a part of the series marketing and backstory.

Transformers GT More Information - Four Super GT Alternity Convoy Remolds in the Works
Posted by News Fetcher on October 19 '12 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some additional information has been posted up about the upcoming Transformers GT series. We'd previously heard that Transformers GT would consist of the Alternity GTR Convoy remolded as the new Super GT. What we can now reveal is that there are four different Super GT Convoy, or Optimus Prime, variants in the works for this series. Check out the picture at left, shared with us by 2005 Boards member DrillBIT by way of Planet Iacon. The four cars pictured are the four variations - the red at top left is Convoy / Optimus Prime, the black one Black Convoy / Nemesis Prime, the blue and white one is Ultra Magnus, and the yellow one, making his debut as a non-convention exclusive, is said to be Toxitron!

Check out the picture of the four at left - and stay tuned for more information as Transformers GT is due to be exhibited this weekend in Japan at Dengeki's 20th anniversary festival at Makuhari Messe convention centre.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A reminder dear friends that tonight is the airing of episode 50 of Transformers Prime. The episode is called "Patch" and it's looking like a Decepticon centric story delving into the relationship between Megatron, Starscream and Dreadwing - with a decent helping of Knock Out so his fans don't feel left out either! Tune in to The Hub at 7pm ET to check it out, then share your thoughts in our episode discussion thread!

Tamashii Nations Disney Combiner Team Set
Posted by News Fetcher on October 19 '12 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is something extremely unexpected - it seems that the spirit of the Transformers Disney Label subline is being carried on by Bandai & Tamashii Nations - and that they are bringing it back with a combiner. This Japanese magazine scan, which we saw posted on Facebook by Autobase Aichi, shows mecha versions of Micky Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, Goofy and Pluto merging into a single robot mode. The mecha share a few design cues with the original Disney label versions of the characters. By appearances, Goofy and Pluto are forming legs, Donald and Daisy the arms, Micky the chest and Minnie we're not entirely sure. The head is even formed by Steamboat Willie, from the first Micky Mouse cartoon!

We've since had confirmation, by way of the Cybergundam blog, that this is a Bandai / Tamashii Nations release rather than a new Disney Label item.

Prime Arms Micron Thundercracker and Orion Pax In Box Images
Posted by News Fetcher on October 18 '12 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our sponsors Robot Kingdom have posted some pictures of the packaging for the Transformers Prime Japanese store exclusive Arms Micron series Thundercracker and Orion Pax. Thundercracker features a new recolor of some Starscream CGI - rather than the promotional render used on Skywarp - while Orion gets a front of body shot lifted from the show. These pictures show the backs of both boxes - no new Arms Up modes showcased here unfortunately - as well as the Tech Sepcs for the duo on the side flaps. They have just now been released in some parts of Japan, so all being well you can look forward to seeing more in hand pictures of them shortly.

Michael Bay Replies To Hugo Weaving's Statement
Posted by News Fetcher on October 18 '12 at 11:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Things are heating up as Michael Bay replies back to Hugo Weaving regarding his statement on voice acting for Megatron.

It is said that the director has posted on his official website, but the post Collider pointing to is missing. However, Collider has posted a copy of the statement by Mr. Bay:

"Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs? With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t ‘artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? I guess The Hollywood Reporter thinks so.

What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job – let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America.

I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate."


This may look like drama, but last time when this kind of thing happened (*cough*Megan Fox*cough*) we ended up with a new character. Which means we could end up with no Megatron or have Galvatron instead (or somebody else voicing Megatron). What do you think? Let your voice heard over at the Discussion Thread.

Kre-O Oversized Jumbo Kreon USB Hubs
Posted by News Fetcher on October 18 '12 at 11:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
First, there were the Kreons. Lego minifigure sized versions of the Transformers you know and love. Then through Family Mart there came 2x sized Kreons, whose heads detached to reveal a stylus or who acted as pocket flashlights. Now once again by Family Mart there comes the Jumbo Kreons - giant versions of those little guys complete with built in USB hubs! Shown here is an Optimus Prime Jumbo Kreon alongside the oversize Kreon Megatron and a regular Kreon Optimus Prime. We're not sure if these are official releases for the Asian / Korean market or just knockoffs but they're pretty awesome oddities all the same.

Transformers Prime Season 2 Finale Darkest Hour Synopsis Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on October 18 '12 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of AT&T's U-Verse we have the description for what is happening in the season 2 finale of Transformers Prime, Darkest Hour. In Darkest Hour, Megatron comes up with a complex plan and once it's put together, Optimus is placed in a position where he is forced to make a risky decision that, if not carefully considered, could have an inescapable effect on the entire Autobot team.

In other words, it's a typical season finale "do or die" situation with high stakes once again! Given the direction the story is moving in and comments from the writers, we can guess at some elements of this - but the actual nature of the finale and Megatron's scheme is not going to emerge until we see episode 51, Regeneration, in a little over a week's time.

Thanks to ComingSoon.net who attended a special presentation by Paramount Pictures, we learn that Paramount has revealed a logo for Transformers 4.

"The 2014 section kicked off with the next entry of the Transformers franchise. Obviously there was no footage to show, but the title does reveal a clever logo, the right half of the standard transformers symbol acting as the stem of the number four."

We recently saw Transformers 4 placeholder logo by Hasbro but there is no image available for this new logo.
