TakaraTomy Tweets Hint at the Future
Posted by News Fetcher on September 22 '11 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara Tomy staff Transformers Marketing Producer Mr.Maeda and MP-10 Convoy Version 2.0 designer Mr.Hasui recently (7pm on 22 September) had a two-hour twitter session with fans. One of the key points coming from the conversation has already been widely reported, the reveal of a potential Masterpiece Ultra Magnus Version 2.0. According to the designer, the concept is already completed, and is just waiting fan's positive reaction to make the actual product a reality (so what are you waiting for? Make your voice heard!)

Other points of interest from the Twitter conversation include:

- Alternity cars can fit into MP-10's trailer. Should look good with Bumblebee!
- Looking to future Masterpieces, Masterpiece Megatron Version 2.0 has been considered.
- Many fans passed along their wishes for a Masterpiece Soundwave.
- Transformers United news - There is no immediate plan for future Transformers United releases, but if Transformers United is revisited, the most likely candidates are characters from Generations that have not already been released as United.

Many thanks to 2005 Boards Content and Photo Staff member SydneyY for sending this summary over to us!

IDW and Hasbro Press Conference on the Future of Transformers Comics
Posted by News Fetcher on September 22 '11 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
IDW Publishing and Hasbro held a press conferance on Wednesday about the future of Transformers comics, with the ongoing Chaos arc, the upcoming Transformers #125 - now simply renamed to The Death of Optimus Prime (spoilered for those who don't already know), and what lies beyond. Comic Book Resources has a full on write-up of the event, with pictures.

There's some new information on Chaos including some awesome art of a total beast of a Transformer that John Barber is calling the Deceptigod, a combiner formed from Galvatron's entire army of Sweeps.

Following on from that there is some news on Transformers 125, originally numbered as such because it was the 125th Transformers comic IDW will publish, but now retitled to avoid confusion for readers. The issue formerly known as Transformers 125 will feature two covers, one by Nick Roche that looks suitably epic, and one by Livio Ramondelli which is an excellent homage to the legendary Marvel Transformers #1 by Bill Sienkewicz.

The article finishes with a tiny bit on the two new series that will be launching next year, Transformers More than Meets the Eye and Transformers Robots in Disguise, although IDW were tight-lipped about what is going into each series, except that John Barber and James Roberts are working closely with each other, and that the events of 125 would have far reaching consequences for members of all three factions across both books. Yes, three factions - an image shown at the presentation teases at the introduction of a neutral, civilian population of Transformers aligned with neither side coming into the mix.

Dark of the Moon Striker Optimus Prime Japanese Exclusive First Image
Posted by News Fetcher on September 21 '11 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member xterry has shared with us a magazine scan showing what the upcoming Leader Class Dark of the Moon Striker Optimus Prime will look like. Striker Optimus Prime is a remolded version of Revenge of the Fallen Leader Optimus Prime, with a new blaster and a shield. The shield appears to form part of the rear of the truck in vehicle mode, and is also stated to form a part of this toy's "Stealth Force" mode. It looks like the swords from the previous version of the mold are going to be absent, however.

Also on the scan are first images of what looks like a third exclusive MechTech weapon campaign. As before these are for spending 3'000 yen or more on Transformers Dark of the Moon merchandise, and the campaign launches on 1 October - stay tuned for more information.

Star Wars Crossovers Darth Vader Anakin Quad Changer Released at US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on September 21 '11 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
I sense a disturbance in the Force...

That's right, the Class III Star Wars Transformers Darth Vader has hit US retail. This $40 giant toy has four modes - Anakin Skywalker, who turns into a Republic Attack Cruiser. But Anakin falls to the Dark Side, and the toy becomes Darth Vader, who turns into an Imperial Star Destroyer. It's effectively two different toys in one!

The Force was definitely strong with ViceGripX, who found this toy at the Toys R Us in Tacoma, WA.
