Transformers Prime Retooled Voyager Optimus Prime
Posted by News Fetcher on January 15 '12 at 10:30 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Sky.ap.teacup.com has posted an article which shows a Transformers Prime display from World Hobby Fair, held in Osaka. Curiously enough, a retooled version of Transformers Prime Voyager Optimus Prime was on display, with:

New Autobot logos on the shoulders

Silver shoulder stripes

All new shoulder cannon

All new Sword

5mm ports on the forearms
In the midst of the discussion, 2005 boards member tackertackle came out of nowhere and supplied the following info:

The panel in 6th picture says that this (or these?) weapon has a secret
and it will be revealed in Korokoro comic magazine April issue (which will out on March 15th).

I think (the)blade-like weapon is same as the one which is in teaser image with new mold voyager optimus.


In any case, looks like come April, TakaraTomy has a more G1-inspired(deco-wise) Optimus on the way for the Transformers Prime line! Check out this "new" Prime for yourself after the jump!

Takara-Tomy New Micron Campaign Toys
Posted by News Fetcher on January 15 '12 at 03:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy's Twitter account has provided some new images of five more campaign exclusive Microns, mostly based on recolored Power Core Combiner Mini-Cons. Of the five shown in this tweet, Autobot Peaceman is one we've seen before. The others seem to include a clear yellow and a solid gray version of Leadfoot's Pinpoint, a solid gray version of Blowpipe, and a clear green version of Universe Cyclonus' Targetmaster, Nightstick.

A further tweet confirmed that the clear yellow Pinpoint would be named "Firebolt Clear Yellow Version" and would be exclusively available at the New Generation World Hobby Fair 2012. Takara-Tomy recently updated their own website with information on this event, including details of how children would be able to vote for their favorite Transformers Prime character and would receive a Micron gift for doing so. While not named on the Takara-Tomy page, it's likely that this Firebolt Clear Yellow Edition is the exclusive Micron which they refer to.

Prime Wheeljack and Cyberverse Toys in Package - arriving in UK Retailer Stockrooms
Posted by News Fetcher on January 14 '12 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member bigspenders76 has shared some interesting images - in-hand images of upcoming Transformers Prime toys in package. These toys include the Deluxe Wheeljack, Cyberverse Commander Bulkhead, and Cyberverse Legion Bumblebee and Vehicon. These packages - the European multilingual packaging - suggest that we are getting bios on the packaging. Time will tell if this is for real.

In the meantime, enjoy these in-package images - it's worth noting that these come from the backroom of an Argos store, a UK catalog store chain who are launching their spring / summer catalog next Saturday. With these evidently in the stock rooms, could we be seeing an earlier than the advertised March release date for the Transformers Prime toys in the UK? Watch this space!

Botcon 2012 Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus Head Close Up
Posted by News Fetcher on January 13 '12 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Evil Autobots Facebook page has been updated with a close up look at that new head on Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus. The new head is an interesting one - on closer inspection, it's a crystal skull with a cracked and warped version of the Optimus Prime helmet around it. It's two parts demonic Optimus Prime head and one part medieval war helmet. While it's not much like an Ultra Magnus head, it does a good job at being some kind of corrupted, dark reflection on a Prime - and perhaps that's the character behind this take on Ultra Magnus.

In any case, does this change your view on the toy? Does it make it easier for you to accept as a different character (or repurpose as someone else entirely in your collection)? Sound off on our 2005 Boards by hitting that discuss button!
