Michael Bay's monster motion picture has scored itself some new shiny trophies in the awards category. The Visual Effects Society recently held their 10th Annual awards ceremony and Dark of the Moon won two out of the five nominations. Dark of the Moon took home the awards for:

Outstanding Models in a Feature Motion Picture: The Driller

Outstanding Created Environment in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture: 155 Wacker Drive

Michael Bay Address The Color Issue Of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon 3D Home Release
Posted by News Fetcher on February 08 '12 at 08:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Fans who purchased the Transformers: Dark of the Moon 3D Home Release mentioned of a Color and Brightness issues with the Bluray.

Director Michael Bay stopped-by his website to tell that the issue lies with the equipment we use at home to watch the movie and not with the release. He also briefly explained how the Home Release 3D was done, to shed some light on the matter. He was humble enough to come and personally help-out the Fans. Kudos Mr. Bay

"The reason some 3D TV color on some systems might not look perfect? Well because there is no standards in 3D. It sounds stupid doesn't it. When we color transfer we spend weeks on a single format. Six weeks on the feature, then weeks additional on DVD, then weeks more on 3D. Every single shot might have brightness windows color moves high light adds. My colors on almost every one of my films have had almost perfect color space scores. I'm the guy who did the first - film to digital - digital transfer release on a movie - Bad Boys 2. I know color and telecine equipment better then almost any director out there. But when I started doing my 3D transfer with the most talented color telecine expert in the world, my buddy Stephan. He told me 3D is fucked. There is no standard to the equipment it is the wild west right now. So if it looks bad it's your product. We aimed color space for the most the equipment that has the biggest market share. In our room it looked perfect. So I'm sorry but it's your equipment. Tell the business to standardize and it will all look perfect in the future. Sorry.

Michael"

Diamond Comics Shipping List for February 15th
Posted by News Fetcher on February 08 '12 at 08:45 AM
By XJunky from TFW2005:
Board member D-Drive has once again provided us with the weekly Diamond Comics shipping list. Up for bat this week is:

INFESTATION 2 TRANSFORMERS #2 Of(2)

Chuck Dixon (w) o Guido Guidi (a & c)

The Infestation threatens all of America, and its evil seems unstoppable as it infects everything in its path. Tobias Muldoon is called upon to help the Autobots find a solution, and he knows the perfect man for the job-Nikola Tesla! Together they attempt to re-activate Optimus Prime, but it's unclear if he will be able to turn the tide in an increasingly hopeless situation!

TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE ONGOING #2

James Roberts (w) o Alex Milne (a) o Alex Milne, Roche (c)

The new TRANSFORMERS direction blasts off! Trapped in space, their ship critically damaged, the Autobots try to rally what's left of their forces. And to complicate matters, Skids arrives on the scene, guns blazing! Who is he? What does he want? Where does he come from? Unfortunately, not even Skids knows the answers...

Ships with 2 covers in a 1-to-1 ratio, 1 by Alex Milne and 1 cover by Nick Roche

TRANSFORMERS TP VOL 06 CHAOS POLICE ACTION

Mike Costa (w) o Brendan Cahill & E.J. Su (a) o Brendan Cahill (c)

While there is much "CHAOS" on Cybertron, there's no less bedlam here on Earth as our remaining Autobots investigate the accusation that Spike, their trusted human ally, murdered a TRANSFORMER. Prowl and Jazz take center stage as the alliance between the two races are on the brink. Also includes the Prowl Spotlight.

Also of note is the first two issues of both More Than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise have sold out and gone to second printings.

Dr. Wu "Roaring" Alternate Face Upgrade for TFC Hercules
Posted by News Fetcher on February 07 '12 at 11:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Earlier today Transformers Galaxy - Hong Kong Fans Group on Facebook revealed a new upgrade kit from 3rd Party Group, Dr. Wu. This time around, the good Doctor has made a new face for TFC Toys' Hercules custom figure. This alternate face depicts Hercules "Roaring" in a similar manner to Guido Guidi's depiction of Devastator in All Hail Megatron #11. Is the face looking familiar to you? It should if you've been following the Hercules Mega Thread as 2005 Board member G.I.Eddie created a custom piece that's very similar. Dr. Wu has even sited G.I.Eddie's work as their influence.

Take a look at the images after the break and share your thoughts in our new 3rd Party Discussion forum!

As the new issue of Game Informer magazine is released, the online version of the magazine comes about as well, sometimes with content not available in the print version of the magazine. As such, in the new online issue, better pictures of the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons were included, as well as a first look of Onslaught.

Fall of Cybertron Bruticus will be composed of five Deluxe-sized toys of the Combaticons and will be released later this year with the return of the Generations line.

Hasbro Statement regarding Transformers Prime First Edition figures
Posted by News Fetcher on February 07 '12 at 12:15 PM
By Super_Megatron from TFW2005:
TRANSFORMERS fans,

As we greatly value our TRANSFORMERS fans and consumers, we appreciate the opportunity to clarify and explain the current situation with TRANSFORMERS PRIME First Edition figure availability in the U.S.

We very much apologize for the miscommunication with our great retailers in the U.S. Regrettably, as a result, the TRANSFORMERS PRIME First Edition Wave 2 Deluxe, Wave 1 Voyager and Entertainment Pack figures were posted for pre-sale in error. Final product was not produced for these figures to ship within the U.S. As such, any consumer who placed a pre-sale order with Big Bad Toy Store or Entertainment Earth in the U.S. received a note that their order had been cancelled and these orders will not be fulfilled. While it is common for Hasbro to cancel production and/or shipment of collectible figures prior to being listed for pre-sale, this particular situation was unique. We deeply regret this circumstance and understand your frustration.

We would also like to express that we hear the fan community in the U.S. loud and clear – you want these specific TRANSFORMERS PRIME First Edition figures. While we can’t confirm anything at this time, and the format in which these figures are packaged and distributed may change, the team is looking into ways to make these available at a later date in the U.S. and will keep the fan community and our retailers posted as opportunities develop. We want to make this right, and making these figures available to the U.S. fans is a top priority for the team. We greatly appreciate your understanding and ongoing enthusiasm for the brand and hope in the mean time, you enjoy the TRANSFORMERS PRIME figures that are hitting shelves now and in the coming weeks.

Regards,

The TRANSFORMERS Team

We received a word that the second book of the Transformers: Classified series is arriving later this year. Book 2 is named Battle Mountain and is written by the same writers; Ryder Windham and Jason Fry. Transformers Classified Book 2: Battle Mountain is set to release on October 9, 2012 which is nearly a year after the release of the first book; Switching Gears.

The series is aimed at “young adult” readers and is set in the Live Action Movie Continuity. As the name suggests, the book series follow untold stories of the Autobots living on earth.

Despite set in the movie continuity, the Transformers: Classified series doesn’t get the mainstream attention unlike the Exodus series. We at TFW2005 are proud to make the first announcement for both books, to the Transformers Fans. We hope to see more from the Classified series and wish the people behind the book series, all the success.
