TFC Toys Star Cat Rescue Defensor Version
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '11 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An item we've not really reported on previously due to the fact it's got nothing to do with Transformers is the TFC Toys Star Cats Star Cat Rescue robot. It's based on a Chinese CGI show and has nothing to do with Transformers really.

Well, except for this possible recolor. It seems the Star Cat Rescue toy is getting a recolor based on Generation 1 Defensor. Reportedly it's a limited run of 1000 pieces and will have a Defensor styled head (and if the enclosed sketch is anything to go by, a Defensor chest too). We're not sure if the reported two set release for the regular version will also apply to this one. Or indeed if this means a more Generation 1 inspired deco for the Dinobot set might be planned.

Simon Furman Interview from Auto Assembly Europe
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '11 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This past weekend, Transformers writer extraordinaire Simon Furman was a guest at Auto Assembly Europe in Uppsala, Sweden. 2005 Boards member SmokescreenSWE had a chance to interview Mr Furman about Transformers comics, future plans and of course Transformers 81. There's not a lot Simon could share about Transformers 81 - but he does mention a couple of things of interest. For one, in this new series, dead will probably mean dead - no miraculous resurrections. There are a few characters Simon killed off who he felt maybe ought to be brought back, although he doesn't want to resurrect past characters without good reason. Also of interest is the art style - the book will be retro in its look, going back to the feel of the older comics.

Check out the full interview on The Bearded Nerd Blog.

By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
The various Maximus figures (Fortress, Grand and Brave) are some of the most sought after figures for various collectors. Making that kind of collection commitment usually requires good timing, a few extra bucks and (usually), a very understanding spouse/significant other. So let's check out a few auctions for the holy trinity of Transformers collecting.

Transformers Toy Concept & Design Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 14 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Designer Alexander Kubalsky has shared a rare look at some actual Transformers design works on his Deviant Art account. These images show how the concept of a Transformers toy is developed, both as sketches and then in comparison to the gray prototypes. Some of the pieces Alexander worked on includes:

Universe 2.0 Hound
Animated Bumblebee signature transformation
Animated Rodimus
Hunt for the Decepticons Sea Spray (the sketch refers to it as a Movie 2 design, though Alexander himself calls it Classic, to further muddy the waters on which shelf this toy goes on)
Movie 2007 Camaro Concept Bumblebee

There's lots more on show as well - click here and check out Alexander's full Deviant Art gallery.

Maketoys Giant Excavator and Bulldozer Color Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 14 '11 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Maketoys have posted some full color images of the first of their three two packs that together make up their take on Devastator, Giant. This first two pack includes Excavator and Bulldozer, unofficial takes on Scavenger and Bonecrusher. They're yellow and black decoed in the style of the Generation 2 Constructicons - by account, a giftset release of the six following later may be in Generation 1 colors. Priced at 10,500 yen and standing 15cm tall, they are reportedly due for a December release. Also in this update is artwork of all six Giant members in color - giving an idea of what the remaining four will look like.

Posted by News Fetcher on November 14 '11 at 05:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Jim Sorenson has updated his blog with a new page from the Allspark Almanac Addendum that comes with Transformers Timelines 6. As expected, it covers the story of the "Stunti-Con Job", plus the characters (six Decepticons and six Autobots. Six Decepticons we know as Toxitron and the Stunticons - the six Autobots are presumably Fisitron, Autotrooper, Sideswipe, Cheetor as the at convention toys - but who are the other two characters? Depth Charge? Erector?)

The Addendum also covers the toys, and includes a special teaser for... something.

Check out the preview by clicking on the link above, and check out the issue hitting comic stores this Wednesday.

An image of iGear's PP04 Cliffjumper has surfaced over on ACToys.

Transformers: Prime Optimus Prime Blaster & Puzzle Book
Posted by News Fetcher on November 13 '11 at 06:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
According to Hasbro, they have big plans for Transformers: Prime. An entire season went by without seeing a single toy but we are now slowly seeing Transformers: Prime toy releases. The first wave is hitting shelves and by the time January we will see them all over the world. Majority of the fans are looking forward to the Deluxe and Voyager releases and we also have Cyberverse figures heading our way in the future.

But, a little known fact is the Transformers: Prime Optimus Prime Blaster. This blaster is the first Role Playing toy from the series and it’s actually two blasters in one toy.

The toy is also associated with the Tagline of the Transformers: Prime Toyline.

“Freedom is the right of all sentient beings... and toys are the right of all Earthlings!”

Description:
Freedom is the right of all sentient beings... and toys are the right of all Earthlings! Direct from Hasbro comes this exciting toy gun from Transformers Prime. Join Optimus Prime and his friends as they defend Earth from Decepticons and otherworldy menaces.

Unfortunately, we don’t have an image of the blaster to share with you. But I’m sure Hasbro will provide us with the official image soon.

Also in mid 2012, Reader’s Digest is set to release a Puzzle Book for little kids. We have with us a sneak peek of the book’s cover and it does feature never-before-seen Transformers: Prime character poses (wonder if these images are from the second season?).

The puzzle book is 96 pages and will cost you $8.99 (the price may vary). It is set to release on 5th June, 2012.

TFW Dark of the Moon Vortex Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on November 12 '11 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with another new Transformers toy gallery! This time we're taking a look at a Dark of the Moon toy that's exclusive to Japan - Dark of the Moon Vortex! Vortex was a remolded version of the excellent Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk with a new weapon - a remolded version of Roadbuster's chainsaw weapon. He's also got a new head which combines the original Generation 1 style with a healthy amount of modern reinterpretation. Overall? Vortex is a great little toy who fits in well with Classics or the Movie universe. Check out our gallery by clicking on the link below - all photos are by the talented SydneyY of our 2005 Boards!

Transformers Kabaya Staff Interview Translated - The Revival of Transformer Gum
Posted by News Fetcher on November 11 '11 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A fun sub-series of Transformers merchandising from Japan are the Transformers Kabaya kits. These "candy toys" are sold in Japanese grocery stores and come with a piece of candy - gum usually - and a model kit. The main appeal's the model kit of course. Transformers have had such model kits since the 1980s and these have recently undergone a bit of a revival, with both new takes on existing characters and also an all-new character in the form of Gaia Cross. Transformers Generations 2011 volume 1 featured an interview with Mr. Koutaro Hayashi and Mr. Masakazu Kunimitsu, who are working on the current series of Transformers gum. It's a short but very insightful interview, translated into English for your enjoyment by 2005 Boards staff member SydneyY! Read on and check it out!

TFC Toys Dino-Combiner Color Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 11 '11 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The TFC Toys Dino-Combiner robot is an unusual one. Sometimes we see pics and it looks a lot like a combiner set of Dinobots, other times we see new pics that push it back the other way. These latest images posted on ACToys push it squarely back into the "not actually the Dinobots" camp. The deco of the five as indicated is gray and black, with some colored highlights such as red. In the pics you can also see the partner release of this piece, the TFC Toys Star Cats Star Rescue, a completely non Transformers related piece.
