Transformers Prime and My Little Pony Coming To Happy Meals?
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '12 at 10:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
In what is sure to be either the most successful or most insanely popular Happy Meal ventures since Beanie Babies, Equestria Daily is reporting that Transformers Prime toys will be coming to Happy Meal boxes at your local McDonalds. The Transformers Prime Toys will be offered in a boys Happy Meal while another one of Hasbro's properties, My Little Pony, will be offered to the girls. No pictures as of yet, but we'll keep you posted on TFW.

What kind of Happy Meal toys would you prefer this time around? Gimmick and weapon based non-Transforming figures like the most recent movie toys? Or perhaps you would like to see Transforming toys return ie;Animated, Beast Wars, and McChangeables? Discuss these possibilities and the combo of Transformers and MLP after the break!

Diamond Comics Shipping List for 1 February
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '12 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member D-Drive has sent us over the listing for what's shipping next week with Diamond Comics. Next week brings us the first part of the Transformers Infestation 2 miniseries - the return to the Hearts of Steel continuity! To go along with this, there's also a new run on the original Hearts of Steel miniseries. Check out the full listings below:

INFESTATION 2 TRANSFORMERS #1 (Of 2) (incentive 1 in 10 ships as well)

(W) Chuck Dixon (A) Guido Guidi (CA) Livio Ramondelli, Guido Guidi

The Infestation threat has broken the boundaries of time and the Lovecraftian monsters invade the world of Transformers: Hearts of Steel! It's a steam-punk world in the grips of panic as terrifying beings from the depths of the ocean corrupt both humans and Decepticons! Only one man knows how to stop the Infestation, and it's up to him to awaken the Autobots in time to prevent full-scale cataclysm!

Ships with 2 covers in a 1-to-1 ratio, 1 by Ramondelli and 1 by Guidi

TRANSFORMERS EVOLUTIONS HEARTS OF STEEL TP (NEW PRINTING)

(W) Chuck Dixon (A/CA) Guido Guidi

Ever wondered what form your favorite TRANSFORMERS would take if they existed in different eras? Wonder no more, as IDW's new Evolutions line debuts with "Hearts of Steel," writer Chuck Dixon and artists Guido Guidi transplant the 'bots to the Industrial Revolution, where a charismatic hammer-man named John Henry discovers that a steam drill is really an alien robot named BUMBLEBEE. Before he can process this information, the pair are attacked by DECEPTICONS disguised as tanks, trains and walking engines. Is this all part of a larger scheme by STARSCREAM? And if so, will the other AUTOBOTS arrive in time to stop his nefarious plans?

Rumor - Transformers Prime Main Line Released in USA
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '12 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Put this down as a rumor for now, but California guys, you might want to start checking your Toys R Us stores for the all-new Transformers Prime mainline toys! The image you see attached to this story - showing the English language Prime mainline packaging and not the omni-lingual European packaging - was taking from this Ebay auction listing. The seller vheryan27 when asked mentioned he picked up Soundwave here and a Cliffjumper at a Toys R Us in California.

For the moment treat this with a grain of salt since it's not a confirmed "off the pegs" store sighting, but all signs are pointing toward the fact that yes, the Transformers Prime mainline is about to hit US shores. Good luck and happy hunting everyone!

Transformers 80.5 Regeneration 1 Simon Furman Interview and New Preview Art
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '12 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Comic Book Resources have posted a very insightful interview with one Mr Simon Furman, who you might have heard of for being the writer behind many a classic Transformers tale. Simon Furman is returning to the continuity that started it all, the Marvel Comics Generation 1, this July. This interview features some art from the upcoming issue 80.5, a Free Comic Book Day special titled Regeneration One, showing mostly some very cool flashback montages - you'll spot Jhiaxus and the Generation 2 origin of life on Cybertron in these new pieces of artwork, seeming to indicate that Generation 2 as a series is being acknowledged.

As for the interview itself - there's a lot of teasing of things to come, and I'll directly quote you one line that tells us some of the things to expect:

... you can expect Soundwave, Ultra Magnus, Wreckers, Kup, Hot Rod, Circuit Smasher, Nebulos, Grimlock, Headmasters, Zero Space, Nova Point, Bludgeon, War-Worlds, G.B. Blackrock, Ratchet, Starscream, and the Optimus Prime vs. Megatron battle to end all Optimus Prime vs. Megatron battles. And that's a promise.

Transformers Collectors Club Magazine #43 Cover and Info
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '12 at 12:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The Official Transformers Collectors' Club has updated their website with a cover image for the upcoming February/March issue with an Animated cover as well as a summary of the issue itself.

So, after seven years of bringing Transformers fans from around the world the Official Transformers Magazine the question was, how do we start year 8? Short answer... With a bang! We don't want to give TOO much away, but how about some great teasers?!?

LeVar Burton sat down with the TCC to discuss his cartoon character and offer a behind the scenes look at Transformers: Rescue Bots. Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster bring us the first installment of the new Transformers: Animated Almanac Addendum TCC feature (with an awesome magazine cover to tie in to the new feature). MTMTE Profiles spotlighting the amazing art of Matthew Armstrong debut this issue as well. And if that wasn't enough, Flint Dille fleshes out a deleted scene from the original Transformers Animated movie, brought to life in the all-new Transformers story "A Flash Forward"! This is first time a deleted scene from the '86 movie has been illustrated in comic form and can be seen now, in Issue 43 of the Transformers Collectors' Club Magazine!

Transformers Bot Shots Sentinel Prime Review
Posted by News Fetcher on January 25 '12 at 07:00 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
2005 Board member, Goldlock, has picked up the new Bot Shots Sentinel Prime figure and provided us with a nice little review. Goldlock goes into detail here about how the game works that is included when you pick up the new Bot Shots figures. The game is based on Rock, Paper, Scissors or in this case; Blaster, fist, Sword. When you have your Bot Shots auto transform the symbol on their chest is revealed. Almost akin to Battle Beasts with the exception that you can have your Bot Shot figure utilize any of the three symbols. The interesting part of this Sentinel Prime figure is what it's based on. This translucent red figure has more in common with Kre-O Sentinel Prime than it does with the movie, IDW or Animated versions of the character.

Take a look at the images after the break!

Posted by News Fetcher on January 24 '12 at 10:30 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
"IT IS THE YEAR 2005..."As the opening narration of the 1986 Transformers Animated movie, those few words ring out in your mind like a shotgun. Victor Caroli is the man who read that line and helped inspire the name TFW2005. Victor provided the narration for the original Sunbow Productions Transformers cartoon, Transformers: The Movie, the commercial bumpers and many Transformers toy commercials. 2005 Board member Jon3pnt0 recently had the privilege of interviewing Victor. In the interview he discusses how he got involved with the Transformers cartoon, why he passed on a part in the Michael Bay films, and much more!

Nonetheless, some may change their mind after having a toy in-hand. 2005 boards member Creaky got his hands on Powerizer Optimus Prime recently and has provided an informative pictorial review.

The interview shows the transformation step-by-step, and shows comparisons with 1st Edition Voyager Optimus Prime. Did this figure pique your interest? Read on for the review, perhaps it's more than meets the eyes!

It’s time for another Transformers: Prime Tuesday Q&A.

Joining with the Transformers fans to answer their questions, it’s Transformers: Prime Post-Production Supervisor Austin Block. She is in charge of scheduling and overseeing the post-production calendar for each episode, including all in-house sessions (such as edit sessions and picture reviews) and out-of-house sessions (such as color correction and audio mixing).

The entire Q&A Session is posted on the Hasbro Official Transformers Face Book Page. We’ve mirrored the session for our readers who don’t have access to FB. Take a look, after the jump.
