TheBOTshop Roadbuster Kits Available on Shapeways
Posted by News Fetcher on November 17 '11 at 02:45 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
While customization of Transformers is certainly nothing new, the popularity of the live-action movies have certainly paved the way for several artists to step up with their own creations. The increased popularity of "third party companies" has also been able to fulfill certain niche desires of collectors with some interesting toys. A great many of these artists start out on our very own TFW2005.com Boards!

One such artist is NATO-BOT, who once offered a custom kit for Universe 2.0 Autobot Roadbuster. With the help and encouragement of long-time Radicon Viagra Prime, NATO-BOT completed a very successful add-on kit. Seeing a limited run, this kit proved to be very popular . . . so much that he has decided to offer it again, via Shapeways, a 3-D custom plastic printing site.

If you are interested in how you can get your own set, check out all of the information provided after the jump.

Certainly stay tuned to our TFW2005.com Creative Forums, as many artists showcase their customs (both "works in progress" and finished pieces) in Customs. You can always see about contacting an artist directly for commissions in our Commissioner Listing and Feedback sub-forum, as collectors have been commissioning artists for a great many years now!

Transformers Prime Season 2 to Premiere in early 2012
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '11 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In a recent Q&A on the official Transformers Facebook page, Transformers Prime executive producer Jeff Kline was asked the question of when more Transformers Prime would be heading to our screens. His honest response is that he has been told it would be early 2012 (he figures late January to early February) and not November 28 as previously reported.

Before all of you assume that Hasbro or The Hub misinformed the fandom with the November date, please remember: plans change. We at TFW2005 believe the original plan may have been for this month, but that the complexity of the series and the dedication of all involved to make the best show possible led to the new season being put back.

Some other interesting information is covered in the brief Q&A, including how the cast was chosen (surprisingly Jeff Kline does not consider Starscream as a must-have character, only the other three members of the big four, Optimus Bumblebee and Megatron), plus addressing the subject of Andy Pessoa's changing voice and his continued role as Raf. Don't worry - he's staying on.

Check out the full Q&A on the Transformers Facebook page.
