Takara DA-31 Autobot Que and DA-13 Soundwave Released in Japan
Posted by News Fetcher on December 16 '11 at 07:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Thanks to 2005 Board member, Masabon, for dropping by to let us know that the latest Deluxe Dark Of The Moon wave has been released in Japan. On top of that, Masabon has picked up the two new molds in the wave, DA-31 Autobot Que and DA-13Soundwave, and provided us with a ton of cool new pictures of Que in both of his modes. He's also provided us with Autobot Que's bio which, except the name, is the same as Hasbro's Dark Of the Moon Wheeljack.

When he first learned about the laws of physics, AUTOBOT QUE took them as a challenge to his intelligence. Laws, after all, were made to be broken. The Autobot technician had dedicated his life to pushing the limits of science. More often than not, his inventions have failed spectacularly, but when they succeed, they often change the course of millions of robots' lives.

Transformers Prime Season 3 - Work begins in early 2012?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 16 '11 at 04:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Initial work on Transformers Prime's third season is set to begin in 2012, according to a Twitter post by series storyboard writer Bryan Baugh:

Well, today is my last day at Hasbro Studios... for a few weeks, anyhow. We got a stretch of down-time before work begins on TFP Season 3...

This might not come as a huge surprise as Hasbro's intentions for Transformers Prime are that it becomes a new and ongoing universe. That being said, plans can change.

Please also bear in mind we've not heard that Season 3 has been officially greenlit yet - but the fact some work is being planned for early 2012 certainly suggests that announcement is not far away.

Takara-Tomy Transformers Prime Show Page Online
Posted by News Fetcher on December 16 '11 at 04:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have added a new page to their website. The new page promoting the Transformers Prime series for Japan includes some goodies such as a character video promoting Transformers Prime the show for Japan (mainly using footage from Darkness Rising). It's a character focus video all about Optimus Prime. According to 2005 Boards member Ricochet, these will be monthly, so watch that space for more character focused video clips. There's also some Transformers Prime Twitter icons (which are pretty cool, and I'm sure would also look great as your avatar on our 2005 Boards).

Lastly, there's another teaser image for the Transformers Prime "Robots in Disguise" toyline which is debuting in March 2012 on both sides of the Pacific, once again the silhouettes appear to be a slightly different Optimus Prime, Ratchet and Soundwave.

Transformers Prime Comes to Japan April 2012
Posted by News Fetcher on December 15 '11 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
More news from the Takara-Tomy Twitter account! Today they have confirmed that Transformers Prime will be making its debut on Japanese television in April 2012. We've known this is coming for a while, since there's never yet been a Transformers series that has not found its way to Japan (though Beast Machines was a close call). Still, the confirmation is great news! Let's see if the exceptional talent that is JAM Project is brought in to provide an opening credits song on the lines of the one they did for Transformers Animated.

The airdate of the show is also being promoted in Japan with pack-in flyers included with the Japanese First Edition Transformers Prime toys and the Dark of the Moon DVD. This additional confirmation comes to you from Snakas.

Diamond Comics Shipping List for 21 December
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '11 at 02:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member D-Drive has sent us the Diamond Comics shipping list for next week, 21 December! There's only one IDW Transformers comic on the list for next week, the last Transformers comic of 2012. How appropriate at the end of a year when we look back on what has passed and look forward to what is to come, we get a Transformers comic that does just that, as new Transformers creative team John Barber and James Roberts take the reins in the story that sets up for the two new ongoings kicking off in January 2012 with a little story known as Transformers: The Death of Optimus Prime

TRANSFORMERS DEATH OF OPTIMUS PRIME (ONE SHOT) [has two different incentive covers]

(W) John Barber, James Roberts (A) Nick Roche (CA) Nick Roche, Photo

Celebrating 125 issues of IDW's Transformers! After Chaos, Optimus Prime's fate was shrouded in mystery. Was he truly gone or could there be a way he had emerged unscathed? Now, Optimus sits in contemplation, in a place he does not recognize as home. And with the cost of the battle finally taking its brutal toll, does Optimus Prime even have the will to carry on? CHAOS changed everything, and Transformers #125 sets a new direction for the Autobot leader...

Ships with 2 covers in a 4-to-1 ratio, 4 photo covers for every 1 by Nick Roche

IDW Expands Comixology Partnership & Goes Same-Day Digital
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '11 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Good news, everyone! IDW Publishing have furthered their partnership with ComiXology, bringing in a host of new ComiXology apps including a dedicated Transformers comics app. More importantly, IDW is now going to be releasing its comics on a same-day digital basis - the new books will be on ComiXology the same day as the floppies are out in stores, and at the same price as the print copy to boot!

An interesting tidbit, pointed out by Comic Book Resources where 2005 News Staff Orio first heard about this news is that with IDW now on the same-day digital bandwagon, the amount of comics available digitally the same day as they are in print has passed the 50% mark - good progress for digital distribution.

Are you getting ready for the premiere of Transformers Rescue Bots this weekend? Hasbro is - they have released another promo image through Facebook, as well as updating their Playskool Heroes section with a whole bunch of coloring pages for you - or your kids - to download and color in.

More new images from Robot Kingdom! This time out, there are images of Dark of the Moon Deluxe Wheeljack - here called "Autobot Que" - Soundwave and Alternity Goldbug in package. These are the Japanese release versions, so this does not confirm that Wheeljack will also be Que in the US - though it certainly makes things a lot more confusing! The new images also give us a look at Soundwave's bio, which we've added to our Resources section:

Earth is bursting with information, the very air pulses with radio waves. Worldwide computer networks vibrate with digital secrets. Soundwave collects it all. Every voice is recorded, every birdsong is remembered, every bit of data analyzed. Information is power, and no one knows better than Soundwave how to turn that power into a weapon.
