By ORIO from TFW2005:
Botcon has updated their website with their next 2012 Botcon Exclusive. This time, it's Heroic Decepticon Soundwave! This figure is based on the Universe Ironhide mold with a new head. He also appears to be sporting a Cold Slither logo. Which is a nice little nod to G.I.Joe fans.

Alas, he is missing his headband. Fear not, for Botcon has updated their Twitter that the headband will be available at the Club store!

Heroic Soundwave joins the already revealed Shattered Glass Tracks and Classics Gigatron figures from the 2012 Invasion Botcon Boxset. Yet to be seen are Shattered Glass Treadshot and Ultra Magnus and a Classics version of Metalhawk.

Botcon will be held in Dallas, TX April 26th-29th at the Hyatt Regency.

Paramount Dominates The World With Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Posted by News Fetcher on January 03 '12 at 08:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Reports are coming in that thanks to Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Paramount has achieved global Box-Office supremacy for 2011.

Despite their largely successful Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II, Warner Bros. had to settle with the second place as Paramount dominated the world, crowning as the “world's most successful studio”.

"This achievement reflects the combined efforts of our entire team across the globe and the careful process by which we select the projects and partners we believe in," said Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey. "We produce pictures that aspire to entertain audiences around the world, while at the same time we have sought to find innovative ways to reach moviegoers in this changing entertainment environment." The studio will release Brad Pitt zombie flick World War Z, Sacha Baron Cohen's latest The Dictator, toy franchise sequel G. I. Joe: Retaliation and a fourth Paranormal Activity film in 2012.

Meanwhile in Hong Kong, Transformers: Dark of the Moon was crowned box office king of 2011 in Hong Kong, but more surprising was the record-breaking success of You Are the Apple of My Eye, the little Taiwan romcom that could, which took over the title of the highest grossing Chinese-language film ever in the territory.

Maketoys Giant Excavator and Bulldozer First Impressions
Posted by News Fetcher on January 02 '12 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some new in-hand images and perhaps more importantly first fan impressions of the Maketoy's Excavator and Bulldozer have been posted over on ACToys. There's a whole lot of images on the far side of that link, and also a (Chinese language) review which 2005 Boards member Bystander has translated some key points of. Key things coming out in the first impressions are:

Vehicle modes "concise and neat", decos mirroring nicely the real life construction vehicles that these two are based on. Not many exposed alternate mode parts.

Excavator - shovel only moves forward-backward, no side-to-side movement.
Bulldozer - plow does not feature functioning hydraulic cylinders and poseability of it is "pretty bad".

Transformation - described as being on a similar level to your typical official Deluxe Class release.

Robot modes - limited head movement, good movement in the legs (ball jointed knees and feet). Both have backpacks of vehicle mode parts.

Are these going to be the third party Constructicons for your collection? Click the link above to see the original thread on ACToys, or read on for our mirror and Bystander's full translation.

In Hand Photos of Alternity Goldbug
Posted by News Fetcher on January 02 '12 at 10:45 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Courtesy of TFW2005 member Type-R and Autobase Aichi, we now have a small gallery of photos of the newly released Alternity Goldbug. This toy is a redeco of the previous Alternity Bumblebee, with metallic paint similiar to Alternity Cliff. This toy is an Asian Market Exclusive release, and is available currently in stock at BigBadToyStore and TFSource.

Do you like the shiny paint job? Do you wish the prior Alternity Bumblebee had such a paint job? Does the lack of a remolded head kill off any interest for you?

Impossible Toys Allicon
Posted by News Fetcher on January 02 '12 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Impossible Toys, makers of the larger Generation 1 scaled third party Quintessons, have updated their website with a CGI render of a product they have coming out later in 2012 - an Allicon. For those not familiar with this character, the Allicons are a creation of the Quintessons much like the more widely known Sharkticons, who serve as enforcers to the Quintessons. They are most visible in the famous "universal greeting" scene of the 1986 animated movie when they failed to reciprocate Kup's Energon goodies. This will be the first time an Allicon has ever received a toy - good news for those of us wanting to fill out another gap in our Generation 1 collections.

Keep it TFW 2005 for more on this and other third party release news.

D.I Studios Hearts of Steel Starscream - A Closer Look
Posted by News Fetcher on January 01 '12 at 03:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yesterday we brought you news of the first public exhibition of a gray prototype of Hearts of Steel Starscream, a third party release planned by new group D.I Studio. Today courtesy of 2005 Boards member Cadbane, we can share a whole lot of more detailed pics! Read on and take a look. We're also informed this is going to be approximately Voyager sized.

Additionally something that was not picked up on initially is that there is in fact a second release from D.I Studio in the works - an Insecticon train, based on the Insecticon's appearance in Hearts of Steel. A picture has been posted on TEKMEN's Weibo page, we've mirrored it on this story.

With three potential new third party releases and a new comic in the form of IDW's Infestation 2, 2012 is going to be a very good year for this "Steampunk" era of Transformers.

Hearts of Steel Steel Starscream Third Party Prototype Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on December 31 '11 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A new third party product has been shown off at a show in China. On show was a gray resin prototype of a Hearts of Steel Starscream. This one is by a new group, D.I. Studio, rather than Mastermind Creations who've brought previous designs from the Hearts of Steel series to life. This prototype looks promising - time will tell if this ends up being a worthy companion to the Knight Morpher Commander and the Cyclops.

TFC Toys also had a display at the same show, showing off their Hercules and also their DSLR "Reflector", who's also still at the gray prototype stage.

These images come to you via the TFClub Weibo account.

Transformers the Ride Grand Opening 25 May in Hollywood
Posted by News Fetcher on December 30 '11 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Screamscape reports that the much-anticipated opening of Transformers the Ride is planned for the start of the Memorial Day weekend, the grand opening date being set as 25 May 2012.

Screamscape goes on to note though that this will be the grand opening date, and that the ride might "soft open" a few weeks in advance of this to get all the staff and crew up to speed.

With this in mind, speculation is could this weekend in May also be roughly when we can expect the toy of the all-new Autobot for the ride, Evac, to be available?

Perfect Effect PE-DX01 RC New Images and Comic
Posted by News Fetcher on December 30 '11 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Perfect Effect have updated their blog with some new CGI images of their upcoming PE-DX01 RC unofficial motorcycle version of Generation 1 Arcee. She's seen here in robot and bike modes, along with CGI of a potential blue Prime Arcee / Chormia inspired deco.

Also included in this updated is some lineart for a pack in comic that will come with the figure. The lineart is not terribly clear in some cases, but it looks like we'll have Arcee and Bludgeon having a swordfight in there.

The blog post suggests that the current release timeframe will be March of 2012. Preorders are expected to open with online retailers at around the middle of next month.

By ORIO from TFW2005:
3rd Party Group, IGear, has updated their Facebook page with new images of their upcoming PP-05 Weapons Specialist figure. Shown in a black prototype, we see this figure in robot mode and vehicle mode along with Masterpiece Optimus Prime. Also in the comparison photos are what appears to be a black repaint of their MW-01 Rager figure. It appears to look like a Nemesis version of Huffer with red windows. Unknown if this will be a figure Igear intends to offer or just a prototype of MW-01

We'll keep you posted on TFW as more information becomes available, for now, head over to the 2005 Boards to discuss!
