Corbot V Update-Official Carnage Axe Pictures and Silver Axe Teaser?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '12 at 09:30 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
3rd Party Group, Corbot V, have udpated their website with official images of their Carnage Axe. The Carnage Axe was produced in lower numbers compared to their original War Axe, so the group recommends picking it up soon before it sells out! Among their official pictures are various Transformers holding the axe, including a stunning shot (in this news posters opinion) of Generations Sky Shadow wielding the weapon.

Corbot V also teases us with an axe that is completely silver. Upcoming product? We'll see!

Check out the new images after the break and then head over to the 3rd Party discussion forum to discuss all things 3rd Party!

Transformers: Prime Entertainment Pack, Bumblebee and Starscream - In Hand Photos
Posted by News Fetcher on February 14 '12 at 01:00 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Our sponsor Robotkingdom has just posted a preorder of the upcoming Transformers: Prime Entertainment Pack featuring both Bumblebee and Starscream. Notably, these are from the First Edition molds, of which many fans have been scrambling for due to the latest cancellation news of the First Edition toys. Both toys feature decos slightly different than their First Edition counterparts. Bumblebee has exchanged some of his black stripes for blue, and Starscream features a bit more purple in some of his detailed areas.

Also to note, the set comes with two MECH figures, one of which is the their leader, Silas. These are in much the same style that we have already seen of Raf from the 2011 NYCC exclusive set.

You can place a preorder with Robotkingdom on their preorder page here.

What do you think of these figures and their new decos? Be sure to share your thoughts in the ongoing discussion.

Transformers 4 Release Date Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '12 at 06:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
This is it folks. Michael Bay himself confirmed the Release Date of Transformers 4.

June 29, 2014

"There has been a lot of speculation about what I'm going to do next and when or if I will do another Transformers. So let me set the record straight.

I have just concluded a deal with Paramount to do two movies, but it won't be two Transformers.

I will first do 'Pain & Gain' with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

Then I will do the next Transformers for release on June 29, 2014.

-Michael Bay"

Transformers 4 in 2014? Lorenzo di Bonaventura thinks so!
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '12 at 04:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Superhero Hype brings word that a fourth installment in the CGI spectacular that is the live action Transformers movies is allegedly in the works for 2014. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura at an event for G.I. Joe Retaliation stated:

We'll be there in the summer of 2014

He also commented on how they can possibly follow on from the ending of Dark of the Moon, which left several major characters on the scrapheap - namely, it will be a partial reboot / sidestory, which is its own entity but set in the same universe:

Again, we're going to try to do a hybrid there where there will be some characters that come forward--we think, we're still in the process of figuring it out--and some characters that don't, but it will definitely be a different story.

2014 is of course also the 30th anniversary of Transformers - so how cool would a new live action movie be in addition to whatever else is planned for the inevitable 30th anniversary toyline?

Transformers Masterforce DVD Set Artwork
Posted by News Fetcher on February 13 '12 at 03:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
TVshowsondvd have updated their listing for Transformers Masterforce with new artwork for the cover of the DVD set. This just announced US release from Shout Factory is due for a May 1st Release this year, the second of the three previous Japanese-only Transformers cartoons. This series was previously only available in the larger trilogy pack. A description from the listing for the series is as follows;

A LONG-AWAITED CLASSIC TRANSFORMERS TITLE AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN N. AMERICA! This is essentially Season 2 of the Japanese series, where Season 1 was Headmasters. Following their victory over the DESTRONS (aka Decepticons) at the end of Headmasters, the CYBERTRONS (aka Autobots) depart Earth, leaving behind only a small group to protect the planet from any future menace. But when the powerful DESTRONS return to an unsuspecting planet, the CYBERTRONS must come out of hiding to defend their human friends once again - only this time they'll be unable to do it on their own. 42 episodes on 5 DVDs plus an art gallery. Original Japanese audio with all-new (and improved!) English subtitles.

Will Victory follow next? Fans can certainly hope! Read on to discuss with your fellow fans.

Dark of the Moon Human Alliance Soundwave & Deluxe Leadfoot, Wheeljack, and Soundwave Cancelled
Posted by News Fetcher on February 12 '12 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Well folks, here is the bad news that I think a lot of you feared was coming, but did not want to hear regardless. There's been some question to the fate of several upcoming releases left in the Transformers Dark of the Moon line - the sixth wave of Deluxes Wheeljack (aka Autobot Que) and Soundwave, the Target Exclusive two pack of Leadfoot and Twin Twist, as well as Human Alliance Soundwave. Well, by way of El Duque of Seibertron, we have an answer - they are cancelled. These toys are no longer planned for a US release. The same fate has befallen them as with previous assortments, including the Reveal the Shield Voyagers and final assortments of Transformers Animated - low retailer demand in anticipation of the new line.

As always, there is a slender chance that at least some of these - Wheeljack and both versions of Soundwave - might surface at Marshalls, Ross or other discount stores - but for the moment, all of these - including Leadfoot - have only seen a release in Japan.

Japan's Winter Wonder Festival continues to churn out Transformers news despite the lack of TakaraTomy being at the show itself, this time thanks to CM's Corp. As we've seen previously, CM's Corp is making a toy based on Minerva from Super God Masterforce as well as Ginrai from the same show in their Gutto Kuru line.

At their booth at WonFest we now additional pics of a resin prototype Ginrai and (a possible final version) Minerva, as well as an upcoming "Minerva Special Edition" figure based on the colors of Nightbeat (and the Minerva Night Beat special release in Japan.) Also shown off on the Minerva Special poster (as well as staring at the camera menacingly on display with the two Minervas) is an extra head based on Hi-Q from the Marvel Comics Transformers run that can be attached to the Gutto Kuru Ginrai's body.
