Transformers The Ride Advertising at The Staples Center
Posted by News Fetcher on April 16 '12 at 05:45 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The LA Times is reporting a new advertising campaign for Transformers the Ride at the Staples Center;

What looks like a giant, smoldering gap in the side of Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles is not the result of the latest disaster to befall the City of Angels.

Instead, it is the latest over-the-top campaign stunt for a new attraction set to open May 25 at Universal Studios Hollywood.

A giant laminate stuck to the side of the sports venue makes it look as if an 80-foot tall, 20-ton metal alien creature from the movie "Transformers" busted a hole through the building. The laminate will remain on Staples Center until Tuesday.

The stunt is meant to bring attention the opening of Transformers: The Ride 3D, an attraction that features the "autobot" and evil "decepticon" characters from director Michael Bay's "Transformers" movies.

It’s a thrill ride that carries guests along a track and envelops them in the world of Transformers using special effects and high-definition 3-D technology.

Two years ago, Universal Studios Hollywood launched a similar stunt to promote the opening of the park's new King Kong 360 3-D attraction. Back then, the park used giant footprints to make it seem as though the giant ape had stomped through Dodger Stadium

TFW TFCC Generation 2 Ramjet and Animated Cheetor Galleries Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on April 15 '12 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
To wrap up our coverage of the 2011 Fun Publications releases for the time being, we have another pair of galleries for you. These two were the Transformers Collector's Club 2011 exclusives - Generation 2 Ramjet and Transformers Animated Cheetor! Animated Cheetor got to feature in the Botcon 2011 comic as the partner to veteran Autobot Sideswipe, so he makes a fun extension to the Botcon 2011 figure set. Ramjet on the other hand sports his awesome Generation 2 colors, as seen in the CGI intro credits to the Generation 2 cartoon (the only new footage in that cartoon... sort of). He makes a nice complement to the Botcon 2010 Generation 2 Redux set.

Click on the links below to check out the galleries of both of these cool figures.

Kabaya Transformers Gum Wave 5 Protectobots in Hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 15 '12 at 04:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Lowbcousin of HK-TF has shared a selection of images of the newly released Kabaya Transformers Gum Wave 5 Hot Spot and the Gaia Guardian combiner series. The six robots in this series - Graze / Blades, Groove, First Aid, Streetwise and newcomers Heatrock & Skyfeather variously combine to form Gaia Guardian or with Hot Spot to form God Guardian. Leave out the new guys and you can form a tiny version of the original Defensor! By the looks of these images, Defensor's original Scramble City limb switching may even be intact - three out of the four Protectobots appear to retain their original head / arm attachment design - Streetwise was always a bit different to the rest but could his also be intact, to make this a truly scaled down version of the original 1986 vintage toy?

Dr. Wu DW-P06 Partners
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '12 at 07:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Images of a new 3rd party set from Dr. Wu have surfaced on ACToys. This time, it's color images of their DW-P06 Partners set. This set, which looks like it will be a two pack, comes with two yellow hard hat workers intended to be in scale with Masterpiece 10 Convoy. These two figures look an awful lot like Generation 1 Spike and Sparkplug. Hopefully a Chip Chase is on the way!

Check out the images after the break.

TFW Transformers United Stepper Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '12 at 01:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Seeing as this week has brought us our first look at the Million Publishing Generations 2012 exclusive, Artfire, let us take a look back at his partner Stepper. Stepper was the mail in exclusive with Transformers Generations 2011, a Classics style update to the original Stepper from the 1987 Headmasters line. Like the original toy, this new Stepper was a redeco of Autobot Jazz, and like the original, this new Stepper included an additional Targetmaster figure (a redeco of Cyclonus' Targetmaster in fact, just like the original!). A final comparison with the original toy is that this new one looks utterly amazing! The black deco with the gold flames is very sharp, and contrasts nicely with the white in robot mode. But don't just take my word for it - we've got an extensive gallery for you to check out and enjoy. Open the link below and check it out!

Transformers Prime Episode 35 Grill and Rescue Bots Episode 7 Four Bots and a Baby Air Today!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '12 at 01:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A reminder readers to tune in to The Hub today to catch some more all-new episodes of Transformers! Airing today is an all-new episode of Transformers Rescue Bots! This new episode is titled "Four Bots and a Baby"! Just how will Heatwave handle being a dad to a robo-baby? Find out on The Hub at 12:30pm ET | 9:30am PT!

Then at 8:30pm ET | 5:30 PT it's time for a new episode of Transformers Prime! This week is the episode Grill - the episode is being billed as a recap of everything that has happened so far from the point of view of Agent Fowler, as he is brought before a military tribunal. It's unashamedly a clip show - but the Fowler point of view suggests we might get an interesting "take" on events.

A seventh "Prime of Japan" exclusive EZ figure has been revealed. Meet Saporro Prime! What is this you might ask? To go with the new "Cybertron Satellite" campaign running in Japan, there are a number of special Primes who have been created to act as mascots for certain towns and neighborhoods. Saporro Prime here uses Universe Animated Legends Prime as a base and is rocking an Ultra Magnus-ish color scheme.

For more info on these special EZ Primes you can view our previous coverage here and here. Click on the title bar to check out the pics.
