Dark of the Moon Wheeljack Bio
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '11 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got a Resources update for you now! Seems Wal-Mart have been updating their website product pages with some upcoming releases, and one of those pages includes the official on-package bio for Dark of the Moon Wheeljack aka Que. Check the bio out below:

When he first learned about the laws of physics, Wheeljack 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.

As you can see, it's a nice throwback to the mad scientist nature of the original Generation 1 character.

The bad news is though that we might not be seeing this one until February 2012, if the latest word out of online retailer Kapow Toys is anything to go by (Granted, they are UK based so might not reflect US chain stores stocking goods, but as we've not seen Wheeljack or Soundwave in package yet, or preorders on many online sites, there may be some truth to it). Check out this thread on our 2005 Boards for more information.

Kreon Optimus Prime with Matrix at Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on December 14 '11 at 03:30 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
A figure that originally only appeared as a convention exclusive at Botcon and TFCon is now apparently showing up at retail stores! TFW2005.com member xion14 recently found the Optimus Prime with Matrix of Leaership Kreon (from the Transformers-themed Kre-O building blocks line) for sale at his local K-mart priced at $5.

Notably, K-mart did have an offer recently using this Kreon as a giveaway item (the reason Superquad7 knows this is that they had ran out when he tried to redeem his coupon printed on his receipt!). While some may have ran into the same issue, other stores may have had a surplus. This sighting looks to be a way to offer these to customers after the give-away period.

TFW Generations Sky Shadow Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on December 13 '11 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got a new Transformers Generations Gallery for you now. This time out, we're giving some love and attention to the other new release in the current Generations assortment, Sky Shadow. Sky Shadow is an awesome little toy - very sharp in black and red, with enough remolded parts to make him a unique robot all of his own. He's also a homage to the original 1989 Transformers Victory Black Shadow, himself a Thunderwing remold - as the original was exclusive to Japan, this new toy marks the first time this particular character has ever been released outside of Japan.

High Moon Studios Fall of Cybertron Interview
Posted by News Fetcher on December 12 '11 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Matt Tieger of High Moon Studios recently sat down with the Game Central reporters of the UK Metro news site. This great and insightful interview touches on a fair few story and gameplay aspects for Transformers Fall of Cybertron, and addresses how Matt and the High Moon Studios team have really taken a step back and examined how they can take War for Cybertron and make it even better for this sequel. Check out the full interview on Metro's site here.

Key points of the interview include:
- Shockwave is the creator of both the Insecticons and the Dinobots. He's a mad scientist and by all accounts major villain in this game.
- Grimlock is not like the original Generation 1 cartoon Grimlock - he doesn't go around shouting Me Grimlock smash all the time. He does have a reason for his speech impediment given in game.
- Gameplay wise, Grimlock cannot transform at will, instead accumulating rage as he defeats opponents. Once he gains enough rage, he can transform and cut loose. In robot mode, Grimlock fights with his sword, he's a sword and shield guy, no long range weapons - if he needs to fight at a distance, he picks up and throws things - including enemies.
- Matt Tieger says originally, Grimlock was not in Hasbro's Aligned Continuity. His part in the game owes a lot to the team campaigning hard to get him in there!
- Bruticus is confirmed as a playable character - it's said to be the part of the game where you feel the most powerful.
- Vortex is another character who is confirmed to be playable. He's on a level described as a giant climbing frame, with the option there for players to tackle the level mostly as a robot, mostly as a vehicle, or anywhere in between.

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.

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.
