Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Hasbro Marketing Art - Cybertron
Posted by News Fetcher on May 16 '12 at 09:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Back in the “pre-Dark of the Moon days” Transformers fans with good eyes spotted something above the skies of Chicago on a TV Spot. Many speculated it being the Planet Cybertron. Sure enough, at the Power Of The Primes campaign by Wal*mart a new image confirmed the theory.

Artist Ken Christiansen revealed today via his blog the entire image of Transformers 3 Cybertron used by Hasbro for promotional purposes.

"Not totally accurate with how it appeared in the film - but it was for Hasbro's toy marketing, and I think it works as a pretty cool toy version of movie Cybertron."

“This is how it appeared in stores, (I only ever saw it in Walmarts) cropped with about only 1/3 of the full image showing. Below is the full version.”

By Secretcode from TFW2005:

Thanks to three eBay listings, we now know the line will be returning (at least momentarily) as the Transformers: Mech Machines subline for The Avengers toyline. It is unknown what the distribution, release date, or price for these new releases at this time.

By ORIO from TFW2005:
A new knock off item has popped up and the good folks over at Hobbybase Japan have provided us with some comparison pictures. This time, it's a knock off version Dark of The Moon Human Alliance Leadfoot. If you're in the market for one of these, please note the following differences:

Transformers Prime Cyberverse Vehicles Released in the UK
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '12 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Good news, UK Transformers fans! Some new Transformers Prime goodies are now available in the UK ahead of their US retail debut. The Transformers Prime Cyberverse vehicle assortment - Wheeljack & the Starhammer and Knock Out with the Energon Driller - have been released at UK catalog store Argos. 2005 Boards member Ishino made the first purchase at the Norwich St Stephens Argos.

Hopefully it will not be long before these also appear at US retail - their advertised release date at Botcon was August 2012 but the Botcon case labels typically represent a saturation date after first release. Stay tuned for more release news!

Hasbro Masterpiece Optimus Prime Version 2 Coming to Australia in October
Posted by News Fetcher on May 13 '12 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
When it was unveiled at Botcon 2012, Hasbro's release of Masterpiece Convoy Version 2 as Masterpiece Optimus Prime created a lot of excitement among fans. This awesome new rendition of Optimus Prime in the Masterpiece series would be available in the US as a Toys R Us Exclusive! And he'd have his trailer!

At the time, there was no news on release windows or pricing, but now we can relay some good news from Griffin of the Australian Transformers site Ozformers - Masterpiece Optimus Prime is coming to Australia in October 2012, with a price of AU$150. As Griffin rightly observes, this probably means a similar release timescale for the US - and factoring in the usual price inflation for Australia, it's probably coming with a pricetag of $100 for the US.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available to us.

By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Our very own Protoman provides us with yet another look of some upcoming BTSToys products. This time, we have a preview of the future BTSToys redeco of the BTS-05 Tremor & Frequency set. This set is named "Yin & Yang", and are apparently part of a sub-group dubbed "Workaholics", which could allude to another sub-group of construction robots due to the similar color schemes.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A recent Facebook update from Robot Kingdom confirms what some among us waiting for iGear's take on a Masterpiece grade Ironhide & Ratchet had feared - they have been delayed once again by iGear. Originally revealed way back in last June, these two highly anticipated releases have been delayed repeatedly since then.

The new release date is said to be in July 2012 - keep it TFW for more news on these and all other things Transformers related, be it news of a release or a further delay.

CHMS Cage for Classics Ravage
Posted by News Fetcher on May 12 '12 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is a real oddity to share with you - 2005 Boards member Sidecutter of online store Captured Prey sent us over these images of an item currently being solicited. The supplier deals in CHMS products, so we're assuming this is one of theirs.

As you can see from the pictures, it's a cage for Classics / Universe Ravage. But not just any cage, as it is based on the cage that the Autobots imprisoned Ravage in after he was caught in the pilot of the original Generation 1 cartoon, More than Meets the Eye. The set even comes with a key to match the cage, based on the one that Hound taunted Ravage with (and later conveniently dropped to let the Decepticon free himself all as a part of a plan to lead the Decepticons into an ambush)

The downside is this piece is likely going to cost $40 as it is made by hand from ABS sheet and rods. Which may well price many fans out of the market for this quirky bit of Generation 1 inspired fun.
