Saitama Prime Revealed!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '12 at 03:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It seems we are not quite done with "The Primes of Japan" just yet, as a seventh has just been posted up by Snakas. Saitama Prime is the mascot of the Saitama region of Japan, and is based on Bumblebee. His regional influence derives from an alternate spelling of Saitama in Japanese (彩玉市 instead of 埼玉市), where the kanji for "Sai" (彩) can also mean "colorful".

Check out more on the other Primes of Japan and the recently revealed Ginza Prime.

Hasbro Studios to bring Generation 1, Beast Wars and Rescue Bots to Netflix
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '12 at 03:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Business Wire is reporting that Hasbro Studios has done a deal with Netflix to bring its content to multiple platforms across the US. Why this is great news for Transformers fans? Netflix already hosts Transformers Prime, but under this deal, Netflix will also soon be adding Transformers Generation 1, Beast Wars and Rescue Bots later in 2012.

There is also news about when Transformers Prime Season 2 will be available on Netflix. According to the release, Transformers Prime Season 2 will be added after the season finale airs on The Hub.

Other shows which will also be coming to Netflix under this new deal are JEM & The Holograms and G.I. Joe: Real American Heroes. Already available on Netflix are My Little Pony, Pound Puppies, G.I. Joe: Renegades and The Adventures of Chuck & Friends, along with the first season of Transformers Prime.

New Classics Legends Assortment Appearing at Dollar General
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '12 at 01:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
... well, perhaps "new" is the wrong word as all four of these have been around before, but never in the same assortment before.

2005 Boards member HoosierDaddy reports finding some new Legends Class toys in his local Dollar General. The four toys in the assortment come on generic backer cards, so are not just old Reveal the Shield stock but a new run. The assortment consists of:

Reveal the Shield Legends Optimus Prime
Reveal the Shield Legends Starscream
Universe 2.0 Legends Megatron
Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Bumblebee (Cyberverse Evolution Set)

The Bumblebee is a true oddity, since he is a single pack version of a previous Toys R Us exclusive multipack. This version also omits the big honkin' Autobot symbol on his chest that the last release had. The other three seem largely unchanged from their first releases.

For the Fan who has Everything - Transformers Prime Crayons!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '12 at 01:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's a random bit of fun Transformers Prime merchandise that has popped up in Dollar Tree - Transformers Prime crayons! The jumbo crayons come 10 to a box and feature artwork of Bumblebee pointing his gun at a prospective buyer as if to say "yeah, leave these on the pegs, IF YOU DARE".

In all seriousness it's another oddity for those of you who collect the non-toy merchandise. The colors just have generic names though - no official "Bumblebee yellow" crayon for you!

Arise, Ginza Prime!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 06 '12 at 01:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The sixth of the Japanese neighborhood Primes, Ginza Prime, has been revealed. For those who missed our previous coverage, the Primes of Japan are a set of six characters based on existing Autobots and traits of the local neighborhoods who they are assigned to, as a part of the Cybertron Satellite promotion. Ginza Prime here is based on the Movie Optimus Prime, his silver coloration based on Ginza's historic silver-coin minting, from which the area of Ginza takes its name.

BotCon 2012 Fan Art Ban Reversed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 05 '12 at 07:15 PM
By Super_Megatron from TFW2005:
After the public outcry by the fans over our reported news that the sale of fan art had been banned at BotCon this year, it would appear that the powers that be have decided to reverse the ban that was placed on the artist alley. You can find the statement below:

We're pleased to announce, per Hasbro, that artist tables will be allowed at BotCon 2012 as we have allowed it in the past, and will be permissible as part of the show. Hasbro sympathizes and understands fans' discouragement with the previous statements concerning fan art, and while remaining steadfast in the right to protect its IP in regards to unlicensed merchandise, wants to ensure fans can continue to enjoy the BotCon experience which they know is made so great in large part by the fan community.

Transformers Rescue Bots Episode 10 Christmas in July
Posted by News Fetcher on April 05 '12 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Taking a cue from the classic Generation 1 episode Fire in the Sky, the next upcoming episode of Transformers Rescue Bots will feature the Rescue Bots dealing with freak snow showers in the middle of July! Granted, this time out the episode teases it is down to a broken weather machine rather than Decepticons meddling with some crystals at the pole, but it's always a pleasure to watch the robots in disguise handle the snow!

Rescue Bots Episode 10 - Christmas in July
Cody, his family and the Rescue Bots have to stop a snow storm in July when a weather machine goes haywire.

Original listing at MSN TV.

Transformers Prime Arms Micron Skywarp Bio Translation
Posted by News Fetcher on April 04 '12 at 11:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Of the so-far announced Transformers Prime toys for Japan, there is one all new, and as of this time, Japan only character. That character is Skywarp, a redeco of First Edition Starscream with new accessories. While the other characters (presumably) have bios similar to their US releases, Skywarp is a newcomer. So what is his story? Well fear not, because Hydra of The Allspark has provided a translation of the bio!

Skywarp is a member of the Decepticon aerial group the Seekers. He outwardly resembles Starscream, but lacks his scheming nature, instead loyally obeying Megatron. True to hs name, he specializes in warp attacks. Lurking in the shadows of the Decepticons, he rarely makes his presence known, but his ninja-like attacks with his shuriken-shaped Arms Micron menace the Autobots.

All credit to Hydra for the translation. Check out some of his other translated Japanese Transformers material at TF Pulp.

TFW Shattered Glass Drift Gallery Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on April 04 '12 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This year's Botcon is all about Shattered Glass - and getting the party started early is "the Mech with the Mouth", the Shattered Glass Autobot Drift! A red redeco of the Generations Drift, Shattered Glass Drift is a big robot homage to Marvel Comic's own Deadpool. To cement this fact he comes with an additional pair of accessories, the pair of pistols that came with Generations Blurr. He's also got a fun homage to G.I. Joe on his shortswords - and if all else fails, he's about two Decepticon symbols away from being a decent stand-in for the Decepticon Deadlock, Drift's former self.

Check out the new gallery courtesy of 2005 Boards Photo Staff Member SydneyY - and check back soon for more new galleries!

By Super_Megatron from TFW2005:
We have received word that artists that booked an artist alley table for BotCon 2012 are now being told that any fan art that may infrige on Hasbro's intellectual property or trademarks can not be sold at BotCon.

The wording from the BotCon brochure advertised "that you can get single tables to show-and-sell your custom Transformers art for $200", but it would appear that Hasbro has reversed this now resulting in more table cancellations at the Texas convention scheduled for later this month.
