Hegemon Third Party Megatron Color Prototype Images
Posted by News Fetcher on January 10 '12 at 10:16 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Remember that gray prototype of a third party Megatron we saw a while back? On Facebook a group called Toyworld.jp have posted some new pictures of a color prototype. Named Hegemon, this piece is a third party Megatron completely designed from the ground up, with Masterpiece styled aesthetics. It's a pretty big piece too, shown here in a size comparison with the TFC Toys Hercules team members and towering over them just like Megatron was always drawn comparatively larger than the Constructicons in the Generation 1 cartoon. Watch this space for more information on this piece as it comes to us.

TFW Fun Fact: The name Hegemon, as well as sounding like something out of Digimon, is a cool throwback to the original trend of naming Transformers after Latin terms. Hegemon is actually from Classical Greek, and means "leader", usually of an alliance of citystates.

Jagex Acquired by Insight Ventures; Transformers Universe MMO Launch may be "Accelerated"
Posted by News Fetcher on January 10 '12 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A small tidbit of information from Gamasutra now. Jagex, who are making the Transformers Prime inspired Transformers Universe MMO, have had a majority stake in their organization purchased by New York based Insight Ventures. According to the writeup on Gamasutra, this will not potentially have a massive impact on Jagex's deliverability for the Transformers Universe MMO, far from it - the implication is that with Insight's latest investment Jagex might "accelerate" the launch of some of its products. Hopefully this also includes the Transformers Universe MMO.

Botcon 2012 Octopunch
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '12 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
News reaches us from ACToys that there's a new Botcon toy revealed. This one is Octopunch, based on Hunt for the Decepticons Sea Spray. We've only got vehicle mode pictures, but it's clear from these that the deco has been chosen to evoke the Pretender shell of the original in robot mode as with Metalhawk.

This new report lends more credibility to a rumored list of exclusives posted a while ago over on Seibertron, which named a whole bunch of additional at-show toys including Octopunch, and also named Metalhawk as a reuse of the Thunderwing mold long before he was unveiled. Could the following also be coming soon:

Spinister - Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk; Kickoff - Reveal the Shield Jazz; Shattered Glass Swindle - Universe Classics Hound; Shattered Glass Junkions - Reveal the Shield Wreck Gar / Generations Junkheap

iGear Herbie Bumblebee and Black Rager
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '12 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have updated their Facebook page with a few pictures of two potential recolors of their past releases - a black version of Rager, and a Herbie inspired version of their Bee! The Herbie Bumblebee is a cool looking piece and a great little tribute to the central car from the much beloved Herbie movies.

Black Rager, on the other hand, is a version of iGear's not-Huffer Rager - but in black. It's a possible homage / callback to the E-Hobby version of Huffer from their Minibots pack that also gave us another white Bumblebee - Bug Bite.

IDW More Than Meets The Eye Siren Design by Alex Milne
Posted by News Fetcher on January 07 '12 at 12:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Fan favorite artist Alex Milne has updated his Deviantart account with his version of Siren from IDW's new upcoming comic series, More Than Meets The Eye. Alex goes onto elaborate in his post;

so i figured since he is on the cover to issue 2, i'd show him off here as well
this is the design i came up with for Siren. this time i used more of the TF Prime look for him then WFC. there is a little amount of WFC, but its more a prime based look.
i think the thing i liked most about working on this, was i had this toy as a kid. i remember all the times playing with him. he was my favourite of the second wave of headmaster toys.
well, back to work
enjoy
