Kabaya DX Transformers Gum
Posted by News Fetcher on April 09 '12 at 03:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Kabaya have brought us a whole range of Transformers gum kits over the last two years - now they are going large. A listing for DX Transformers Gum has appeared on the Sproutoy Rakutan store, due for a release in July with a price of 2,625 for a box of twelve. The packaging shown so far is only a mockup, but by all indications the DX Transformers Gum series is going straight for the big guy himself right away - a new Transformers gum Fortress Maximus. By the looks of things, each box will contain a small Transformer with Micromaster level of transformation (Windcharger is shown), as well as a mini base - and all three mini bases connect together to make Fortress Maximus.

We'll update you once more information on this next evolution of Kabaya's Transformers Gum series comes to light.

Hasbro Asia Commemorative Coin Box
Posted by News Fetcher on April 09 '12 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some pictures have reached us of an interesting oddity from Hasbro Asia. Fat Toys Corner Blog reports that Hasbro Asia has released a coin box to hold the commemorative coins that they have been issuing alongside the major releases of their region: MP9 Rodimus Prime, MP10 Optimus Prime, MP11 Starscream, Jetwing Optimus Prime and Encore Devastator. Interestingly it uses the English names for them all, in spite of MP9, MP10 and Devastator being released under their Japanese names.

The box itself features a Matrix design on the front of the box, and slides apart down the middle to reveal the contents. While a nice idea it does mean that the already nice packaging for the coins will need to be discarded to place them in this box!

Transformers Prime Knock Out Review and Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on April 08 '12 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It's time for another look at an upcoming Transformers Prime toy from Deluxe Wave 3 - this time it is the turn of the Decepticon scientist / medic / narcissist, Knock Out!

KNOCK OUT is oily slick; the ultimate salesman. Everyone knows his weapons are dangerous and prone to malfunction, and his installation methods often leave DECEPTICONS scarred and crippled. But who can resist having quantum disintegration at his fingertips?

Unlike Vehicon, who made a lot of good first impressions from the very first picture, Knock Out is one of those toys who got off to a bad start with a mistransformed initial picture, which is a pity because he is actually not a bad little toy at all. Decently poseable, clever and full of personality, check out our gallery by clicking the link below and read on for this writer's thoughts on why Prime Knock Out is a worthy addition to your Transformers Prime Decepticon lineup.

TFW Transformers Prime Vehicon Gallery & Review
Posted by News Fetcher on April 07 '12 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got a bunch more new Transformers Toy Galleries coming your way over the next few days, and we're going to be starting the ball rolling with the newest and hotest Transformers Prime releases. Fresh from Deluxe Wave 3 is the mainline version of the Vehicon!

Every Vehicon knows how likely he is to be dismantled - either by the Autobots, or by a Decepticon commander in need of spare parts. Danger is part of the life for them, and they welcome it. To a Vehicon, happiness is loyalty to Megatron and a warm blaster cannon.

So, to sum up the Transformers Prime Vehicon in a single word? Awesome. A total must-buy for all fans of the show, and even if you are not a Transformers Prime collector, track down a friend who is when this one hits and have a play about with it to experience one of the cleverest car to robot transformations in a few years. The Hasbro / Takara-Tomy designers have outdone themselves with this release.

Click the link below and check out the full gallery. Read on for a few more of this fan's thoughts on this awesome new toy!

Transformers Prime Japanese Airing
Posted by News Fetcher on April 07 '12 at 12:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Prime has made its Japanese debut! The show is accompanied in Japan by an intro made up of clips from the series, accompanied by a wonderfully out of place theme song. According to 2005 Boards member Sprocket the Arms Micron theatre segments are low budget CGI, with basically the three weapons floating around for the whole sequence, so probably your typical omake segment. In terms of voices, Starscream is less Steve Blum menacing and more flamboyant, Bumblebee is the same as ever, and Arcee likes to say "this is / you are the worst" a whole lot.

All the characters also say "Arms Up" when deploying their weapons, and "TRANSFORMMMM!" when transforming, even the Vehicons, which you might arguably have expected from previous Japanese Transformers dubs.

Check out the intro and ending credits videos below - notice also the ending credits show a "next time" segment in the credits themselves, a nice touch but not as seamlessly integrated as other examples of the style, such as the Tales of the Abyss anime.

Transformers Prime One Shall Stand DVD
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '12 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TV Shows on DVD reports that there is a new Transformers Prime DVD coming our way from Shout! Factory. Due out on July 31st with an MSRP of $14.97, this DVD is called "One Shall Stand", and features the trifecta of Optimus Prime, Megatron and Unicron on the cover with what looks like Cybertron in the background.

The exact contents of the DVD are unknown at this time, but given the name and the fact Unicron is right there on the cover, expect it to cover the season 1 finale - and possibly the season 2 premiere Orion Pax as well, for the complete seven episode story arc. It's aimed for more casual viewers who might not want to lay out the cash for a full season set, much like the previous Darkness Rising single DVD set.

By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Exciting tidbit of news coming from the Snakas Blog, as it's been revealed that the exclusive for the Transformers Generations 2012 book is none other than Artfire! This exclusive was guessed by many when the character appeared in the comic from Transformers Generations 2011 Volume 2. Artfire is (presumedly) a remold of Reveal the Shield Grappel, with Inferno's head and an Arms Micron. It is unknown if the Arms Micron is a new mold, or a redeco at this time.

This is but a teaser image, as TFW2005 user Ricochet has pointed out, with the official reveal and full-on images to be revealed in the coming weeks.
