TFW Transformers Prime Jet Vehicon (Japan Exclusive) Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '12 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next gallery update, we have a look at the other July release in the Japanese Transformers Prime line, the Jet Vehicon! The Jet Vehicon is a "reshell" of the regular Vehicon - in other words, it takes the basic robot but changes out the car vehicle panels for flight mode ones. It's a nice variation on the regular Vehicon, and together with the First Edition which was a different design completely you have a cool (if a little pricey) way to assemble a squad of three Vehicons without any two being the same. This one is another in a growing number of releases that seem to be unlikely to see a US release at this time.

Check out our full gallery by opening the link below - and give some big thanks to 2005 Boards Photo Staff member SydneyY for providing these photos for us!

Transformers Redecos of Energon Omega Supreme and Optimus Prime in 2013?
Posted by News Fetcher on August 08 '12 at 10:15 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Thanks to a thread on ACTOYS, we have ourselves a first look at two new redecos coming to the Asian Exclusive Generations (Or as it's being referred to via retailers, "GDO") toyline, and the mold choices might surprise you as we're getting new redecos of Energon Omega Supreme and Optimus Prime.

It is unknown what color schemes these two toys will be in, but do take note both of these toys are able to be combined together into a "Optimus Supreme" mode. Could we possibly be seeing a unified color scheme? What about G1 accurate color schemes for both toys? Regardless, feel free to speculate away in the discussion thread by hitting the discussion link below!

Ford Australia And High Moon Studios To Customize An Aussie Transformers Ford Falcon
Posted by News Fetcher on August 07 '12 at 09:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
When things aren’t good for the Ford Falcon… who you gonna call? Transformers! Yep indeed, here’s a chance for you to turn a Ford Falcon to a Cybertronian.

Ford Australia and High Moon Studios are joining together to get their fans to customize the Ford Falcon. According to the official Facebook page of Ford Australia:

“To celebrate the launch of the new video game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Ford and Activision are giving you the chance to create an Aussie Transformers Ford Falcon. Over the next four days we’ll run polls inviting you (our fans) to vote on a selection of characteristics, which will make up our Falcon Transformers car.”

The first poll ask the fans, should a Ford Falcon be a Transformer would it be an Autobot or a Decepticon?

Your votes will shape the final art created by High Moon's own art team. And the Ford Falcon will get customized according to the preferences getting the most votes.

Ford Falcon sales are going down these days, but hopefully this promotional campaign will do the trick.

You can read an article on this news and visit Ford Australia Official Facebook Page to vote.

TFW Generations Springer Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '12 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
After a brief break we are back with the fourth of the four new Deluxe Class toys in the Asia Exclusive Generations Deluxe Assortment. Last but by no means least, we have an advance look at this homage to Generation 1 Springer, who will be coming to Toys R Us later this Fall as a part of the "China Import" exclusive assortment.

Springer here is a very cool reuse of the Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk mold. He features a new head which is modeled on his more recent appearances in the IDW comics. He's also got a new sword accessory which complements his look nicely. The lanky build of the mold really screams "Springer" to me, and while the mold's movie-line origins means this one is not for everyone, my personal feeling is this is an ideal addition to a Classics collection. The design fits in well with the likes of Drift and Wreck-Gar and looks absolutely fantastic in helicopter mode. He will be one worth seeking out once his assortment makes it to the US, if you have not already got him on import.

Open the link below to check out the full gallery, which includes a selection of comparisons with the unofficial Springer toy, the FansProject Warbot Defender, contributed by 2005 Boards member Orodruin!

TFCC/Fun Publication's Pete Sinclair to appear on Toy Hunter
Posted by News Fetcher on August 06 '12 at 11:30 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Pete Sinclair (aka Pete@BotCon) has swung by to let us know that he'll be making an appearance on the upcoming Travel Channel program "Toy Hunter", where the crew of the show visit Pete's personal office to talk about not only the Transformers Collector's Club, but the Transformers fandom.

I will be appearing on the Season Premiere of "Toy Hunters", Wednesday Aug 15th, 10pm on the Travel Channel. The episode premieres right after the "Best Sandwich in America" Finale.

Though the company I work for, Fun Publications, is not associated with Toy Hunters, the segment did take place in my office so viewers will get a look at where I work and we do spend some time talking about the Transformers Collectors' Club and the amazing Transformers fandom.


Toy Hunter is a show where "Jordan Hembrough, a renowned toy dealer and ultimate toy hunter, takes toy picking to a new level as he takes on collections from some of the most popular cities on the East and West Coasts. His reputation for having the most sought-after, rarest finds has labeled him the "in-demand dealer" that everyone wants to have evaluate their stash."

Check out the teaser shots from the episode by either taking the jump/clicking the story title, or by visiting the Travel Channel's website over here.
