Optimus Prime Evolution of a Pop Culture Hero Exhibit at University of South Florida
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '12 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
dharmacon dropped by our 2005 Boards to share something that is doubtless going to be of interest to all you fans in the South Florida area - from June 2 to August 3 2012, there will be an exhibition charting the evolution of Optimus Prime at the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library, University of South Florida, St. Petersburg. This cool exhibition in dharmacon's own words "features roughly 100 figures, including many of the major Optimus Prime toys that have been released in the U.S. since 1984, along with plenty of toys from more ancillary product lines (e.g., Heroes of Cybertron, MyClone, Kre-O, etc.). It also features products and merchandise, narrative text and facts, a selection of comic books featuring Prime on the cover, and a display case devoted to the four voice actors that have given life to Optimus Prime over the years.

As an added bonus, there are also letters from three of Optimus Prime's four voice actors in the exhibit. Garry Chalk (voice of Optimus Primal and Optimus Prime 2002-2006), Neil Kaplan (Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime) and David Kaye (Transformers Animated Optimus Prime) have all contributed some honest and heartfelt thoughts about Optimus Prime, the fans and the greater Transformers Legacy.

It's pitched at a general audience, so it may not have anything that fans like us do not already know, but if you are in the area then head on by and take a look - it genuinely sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon. Check out the University library opening hours here.

Transformers Prime Arms Micron Capsule Toy In-Hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '12 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Prime Arms Micron Capsule Toys have just made their release in Japan, and that means the Japanese blog sites are starting to get some in-hand pictures of these cool new Targetmaster-styled partner figures up. The first set of four, featuring Optimus Prime Blaster, Bumblebee Sword, Zad and Gob, are showcased on this Japanese blog site. Optimus Prime Blaster and Bumblebee Sword are based on Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in Transformers Prime, and transform into new weapons for Optimus and Bumblebee to wield - a cool blaster similar to Optimus' O.P. Arms Micron and a wicked looking double bladed sword. Zad and Gob are new, come in two color variations (purple or black), and turn into some crazy looking melee weapons.

They're a pretty awesome set all things considered and worth taking a look at - especially when you also consider the "fan mode" that has come to us from Japanese image board 2Chan, showing a combined robot form using all six sets. At least, we're assuming it's a fan mode...

TFW Dark of the Moon Soundwave Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '12 at 01:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Moving right along, next up for you we have the third in our little series of "toys that never made it to US retail" from the Dark of the Moon line. Up next is Soundwave. Three versions of Soundwave were planned for the Dark of the Moon line - of those only the Cyberverse made it to US retail; the Human Alliance Soundwave and this one, the Deluxe class toy, never made it outside of Japan and a very limited release through Hasbro Asia. It's a pity because while the toy is not without its flaws (the roof of the car hangs off the back in a very unattractive way) it is a good toy, very solidly built and a nice representation of the character who appeared on screen in the movie. He nicely complements the other Decepticons and is a real step up from the satellite version from Revenge of the Fallen.

Check out our gallery for another look at a toy which missed out on US shelves:

Fall of Cybertron Metroplex Revealed, Escalation Returns
Posted by News Fetcher on June 03 '12 at 12:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Ahead of E3, an early copy of the next edition of Gameinformer has stolen the thunder of High Moon Studios big E3 reveal for Fall of Cybertron, Metroplex. The big dude is shown in a screencap attached to the magazine's latest coverage of Fall of Cybertron and as you can see he is very much his original Generation 1 self, reimagined in the Cybertronian style of the War / Fall of Cybertron series. Metroplex is set to play a pivitol role in Transformers Fall of Cybertron, and while from what we have heard so far you may not get to control the titanic Autobot directly, when you play as Optimus Prime you will have the ability to mark targets for Metroplex to deal with. How Metroplex deals with them is half the fun - we have seen him eliminate targets using missile strikes or by closing in to smash them with his mighty fists, depending on the context.

Discuss this new image and the look of Fall of Cybertron Metroplex here. Image credit goes to Foxdie on the Full Metal Hero boards.

But that is not the only news. The article around the image reveals that a fan-favorite element of Transformers War for Cybertron, the Escalation horde mode, is also set to return. Gameinformer reports that they have had a little hands-on time with the new mode, and will have some videos of it up in due course, so that is something to look forward to.

Discuss the return of Escalation in Fall of Cybertron here!

Transformers the Ride Evac Toy Released
Posted by News Fetcher on June 01 '12 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
News in from Universal Studios Hollywood now - we've got our first new toy release of the month of June for you! The all-new character from Transformers the Ride, Evac, has a Deluxe Class toy exclusive to the Universal Studios park, and 2005 Boards member TheTFReview sent us this picture showing that the new member of the Movieverse Autobot team is being well stocked at Universal Studios Hollywood. He comes with a higher than average pricetag though as you might expect for a theme park exclusive toy, and that is $21.95. As you can also see in the bottom of the picture, the exclusive repack of Deluxe Optimus Prime (and, we assume, Bumblebee) are also now in the ride's giftshop.

Headrobots have dropped by to share with us not one but two updates! First up is their Blood DX, the long-awaited customization kit for Deluxe Revenge of the Fallen Decepticon Bludgeon. The kit converts the vehicle mode from an APC into a full-on tank, with the robot mode sporting the classic Bludgeon samurai look (Headrobots wishes to point out that the maroon color on the helmet is prototype only - in the final version, the helmet will be brown to match the rest of the vehicle mode)

The set is going up for preorder at retailers now - such as at Big Bad Toy Store. It's due for a release in the third quarter 2012.

Second is a kit which is currently only a proof-of-concept, internal to Headrobots only. It is called "Black King", a Transformers Cybertron Dark Scorponok to Black Zarak upgrade kit, with new claws, scorpion legs, spear, helmet (with Headmaster), feet and cannons - essentially all the important parts to make Dark Scorponok into Black Zarak. Here's the rub - it is internal only right now. It would cost $100-120 to release and would be done in installments like CrazyDevy, if it is released. If you want to buy it, you'll need to show your support by liking Headrobot's Facebook post.

Kabaya Transformers Fortress Maximus New Image
Posted by News Fetcher on June 01 '12 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A small update for you now - Japanese online site Ami Ami have updated with a new image of the upcoming Kabaya Transformers Gum "Cybertron Base" series, which are three little sets with small robots and bases for them - with the added bonus that all three bases can combine into a Kabaya version of the biggest Transformer of them all, Fortress Maximus.

This new image shows us that as an added bonus, the Kabaya Fortress Maximus will include his Master Sword - a Japanese-exclusive accessory with the 1987 release of Fortress Maximus which carried over to the later Grand Maximus release and the weapon used by Omega Prime in the finale of Robots in Disguise. The Kabaya version of the Master Sword remains as proportionally huge as the original sword, and comes in the set that includes one of Fort Max's legs and a Kabaya version of Minibot Powerglide.

These are due for a release in July - I can hardly wait!
