Auto Assembly 2011 Script Reading Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on December 10 '11 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Auto Assembly have released another video from last year's convention - this one is their script reading! Featuring a script by Simon Furman and performances by David Kaye, Gregg Berger, Nick Roche and several attendees, it has many classic moments, including Nick Roche VS David Kaye in the battle of the Beast Wars Megatrons, and Gregg Berger VS David Kaye in a good old fashioned Grimlock meets Grimlock moment! It really was a brilliant script - check out the embedded version below:



Also in case you missed it, check out day one's video - a revolutionary panel with Mark Ryan, the voice of Mobie Jetfire and Bumblebee (for the one brief scene at the end of the 2007 movie). Mark Ryan was not able to attend Auto Assembly 2011 in person, but made an appearance through the magic of Skype!

By ORIO from TFW2005:
Transformers Generation 1 voice actor veteran, Dan Gilvezan, has released a book entitled "Bumblebee and me: My Life as a G1 Transformer". Dan Gilvezan is the voice for Generation 1 Bumblebee and in the description from the Amazon.com listing it reads: "In the spring of 1984 Dan Gilvezan walked into an audition for a half-hour animated TV series and walked out an hour later with a role in a show that would change the landscape of television in the late ’80s: A show called The Transformers."

"Bumblebee & Me takes you behind the scenes of the original Transformers television series for a first-hand look at the making of a classic. Experience the controlled chaos of the recording sessions, learn the secrets behind creating a character voice, get to know the members of the cast up close and personal."

The book is also full of stories, reminiscences, anecdotes and never-before-published photographs, cast list and a complete G1 episode guide.

Sounds like a must have for any fan of the original Transformers cartoon series. You can read the full description by clicking the title bar.

Dark Of The Moon In the Running For Oscar Nomination
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '11 at 10:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
IGN.com is reporting that the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced 15 films are now in the running for Achievement in Visual Effects for this year's 84th Annual Oscars. Among those fifteen are our favorite Robots In Disguise and their Mega Blockbuster, Transformers Dark Of The Moon. There are some tough competitors in the list including; Rise of The Planet Of The Apes, X-Men: First Class and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, just to name but a few. In early January, the members of the Academy's Visual Effects Branch Executive Committee, who selected the 15 films, will narrow the list to 10.

Think the Autobots and Decepticons can pull off a win? The nominees will be announced live on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

The 84th Academy Awards will air on ABC on February 26, 2012. In the meantime, you can read the full press release by clicking on the title bar and then head over to the 2005 Boards and tell us what you think.

Dairycon 2012 Dates Unchanged: Friday & Saturday, April 27-28th
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '11 at 07:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Despite BotCon falling on the same weekend, the organizers of the Dairycon says the dates for the 2012 convention won’t change.

TFW2005 Boards Member cbff received the following message from the organizers of Dairycon…

"Hello all,

Just a quick update to let you all know that we are standing by our plans for April 27th & 28th! While I know that we may lose some of you to that convention down in Texas (believe us, *every* loss is sad), we are moving on with our plans for this year's Dairycon.

As many of you know, Dairycon has been an event for those who can't afford to make the trip out to the big show, who can't afford their exclusives, to get together with friends who you may not have seen in a year, and to have some Dairy cow-themed fun...

We hope to see you there, but if not; it's all a celebration of the same fandom!"


Dairycon 2012 will stay on Friday (April 27) & Saturday (April 28) as originally planned.

Transformers Dark of the Moon 3D Blu Ray 01/31/12
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '11 at 06:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Blu-Ray.com is reporting that the full 3D Blu-Ray release of Transformers Dark of the Moon is out next month on 31 January 2012. It's coming as a Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy combo pack, and it will present the film in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1. No word on special features for this release yet, so it's not clear if this will be the full deluxe set, or just the bare-bones edition like the previous Blu-Ray, with the 3D copy added.

Igear MW-04 UFO
Posted by News Fetcher on December 09 '11 at 06:00 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Igear has updated their Facebook page with an image of their next Mini-Warrior 3rd Party Figure. MW-04 UFO is his name and he will be based on Generation 1 Cosmos. Something very cool to note is that UFO has a space helmet. That is how Transformers artist Guido Guidi depicted him in the recent Transformers Ongoing comic book in issue #12. This might be a great alternative to anyone still trying to track down the limited Hasbro release of Universe Cosmos.

Take a look at the image and sound off on the 2005 Boards!

IDW Transformers Comic Writer Mike Costa Reflects on Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on December 08 '11 at 02:45 PM
By Kickback from TFW2005:
With the release yesterday of the on-going Transformers #31, the writing reign of Transformers scribe Mike Costa has come to its own conclusion. Having written a total of 35 issues of Transformers, Mike Costa, interviewing with the The Underbase Podcast, proudly stated how honored and how “really cool” it is to know that only Transformers legends Simon Furman and Bob Budiansky have written more issues of this timeless comic than he has.

As Mike Costa departs, he leaves a legacy of change behind him, not only in the stories he wrote for Transformers, but also with contraversy over some of the things he's stated over the years. He makes a point to touch on some of the things from his tenure with Transformers in the Podcast which we have summarized after the jump for our viewers.

You can find the PodCast in question on iTunes by searching for “The Underbase”. We’ve listened to the PodCast, and we’ve written a summary of some of his statements (as well as quotes) for you to read. Check it out after the jump. And if you’re a fan of PodCasts, don’t forget about TFW2005’s WTF@TFW PodCast, which you can find download links to by clicking here. Image courtesy of Mike Costa's TFWiki.net profile page.

Yet another Classics Hound & Ravage Accessory Pack
Posted by News Fetcher on December 08 '11 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Because we really needed a third Universe Classics Hound gun option and Ravage missile set! To their credit, this new set by MGS shown off on Toyspie is a bit different from the Dr Wu set in two ways - first it includes a gas tank, an add on based on an extra accessory Hound had back in Generation 1, and second, the parts are made to conceal in vehicle mode - Hound's gun becomes his exhaust, with Ravage's missiles becoming a missile rack of sorts.

Veteran Optimus Prime (and more importantly, Optimus Primal!) voice actor Garry Chalk will be attending Dragon*Con 2012! Garry - pictured at left serenading TFcon 2011 guests at an impromtu session at the hotel bar - was the voice of Optimus Primal for the whole run of Beast Wars, as well as the voice of Optimus Prime through Transformers Armada, Energon and Cybertron. For a whole lot of us who came into Transformers during this time, he is the voice of Optimus Prime. Don't miss this chance to meet the man himself - maybe he'll even manage another impromptu guitar concert?

Transformers 4: Deal Or No Deal?

Believe It Or Not, Transformers 4 is now trending in Twitter. It is indeed amazing that this is happening even without a solid information regarding the next Live Action Movie of the franchise we know and love.

Online Magazine Vulture Blog is reporting that, Paramount Studio is close to sealing the deal with Mr. Michael Bay. The magazine further tells us that…

"Meanwhile, the details of the next cyborg saga are being kept secret, but we’re told that it is definitely not a prequel, and that it will delve deeper into the Transformers canon to mine older characters and lore. "Regular people might not care about bringing out a character like Sentinel Prime," says one of our insiders, referring to the little-known character who played a major part in last summer’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon, "But believe me, fans of the series cared.""

Later, Michael Bay himself stopped-by his website to tell the fans

“Studio's are passing rumors but I'm not sure what I'm doing? I know I'm going to do Pain and Gain early spring but that's it for right now. I'm leaving all my options on the table. I've got several Studio meetings in the next two weeks.”

Also, out of nowhere, actor Tyrese Gibson made this tweet few hours ago...

"Transformers 4 ......................................................... In MOTION!!!!!!!"
