Interview with Sumalee Montano, Transformers Prime Arcee
Posted by News Fetcher on November 06 '11 at 05:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
BWTF.com has posted an interview with voice actor, Sumalee Montano. You may know her as Arcee in the Transformers Prime. In the interview she discusses how she got into the world of acting and voice acting, how the two compare and what it's like to record an episode of Transformers Prime.

On a side note, Ben mentions in the interview that she will be doing a voice in the upcoming Transformers Fall of Cybertron video game. This is an interesting tidbit as we reported previously that the developers had no plans to include any female Transformers in the video game.

Heavy Labor and Exgraver Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on November 06 '11 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As you might have heard, the second of the six Hercules figures from TFC Toys was recently released. Heavy Labor is the second of these not-Constructicons, a Long Haul inspired dump truck with a heavy duty, powerful look to him. He's a pretty solid release all round - not without his flaws, as have been documented - but he combines the look and feel of a late 80s / early 90s Transformer with modern articulation. Along with the first release Exgraver, these two demonstrate that third party Transformer releases need not be excessively fragile and fiddly.

Heavy Labor recently arrived on my doorstep, so I have done a few photos for a gallery to share with you all. I've also got some photos of the first Hercules release, Exgraver, to share - it's a two for one! Check out the full galleries, totaling up at nearly 200 images, by clicking on the links below:

JustiToys Military Transport WST Astrotrain White Version New Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
JustiToys has released some new images of their WST Military Transport on their Facebook. These new images show what is potentially the final version of this item - they also suggest that some changes have been made to the proportional size of the gun, which has been made smaller when compared with the relative size of the Generation 1 gun.

The one pictured here is the black and white version, which will be a TFSource exclusive. There is also an E-Hobby "Prototype" colors version, which is going to be a general release.

Possible Dr. Wu Metroplex/Trypticon Eye Accessory?
Posted by News Fetcher on November 04 '11 at 11:30 AM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
In an almost bizarre move by 3rd party group Dr. Wu, Transformers Galaxy - Hong Kong Fans group has uploaded some CGI renders of what appears to be an "eye" accessory. This appears to be based off of the eye that Scourge steals in the classic Season 3 Generation 1 episode, "Starscream's Ghost".
So, if you're into unique (and obscure) references this is certainly an item to keep an eye out for.

Paramount is talking about doing Transformers 4
Posted by News Fetcher on November 04 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Dark of the Moon was real successful, so this headline should not come as too much of a surprise, especially with the recent reports that Hasbro is in talks for Transformers 4.

Italian site Badtaste conducted an interview with Scott Farrar, visual effects supervisor for Transformers Dark of the Moon. One of the questions asked him about the future of the Movie series, and the response that he gave was:

"Transformers 3, Dark of the Moon, was incredibly successful... these are making more money every time, and so success certainly gets people talking, and thinking about we should make another one possibly. Paramount has asked me and I'm willing to do another one, I'm happy to do another one, and they're talking with Michael Bay about that. I don't know if or when it's going to happen exactly, but you know, we'd love to do it."

So, what this tells us about Transformers 4:

Paramount are asking people involved in Dark of the Moon if they would be interested in returning.
Paramount have approached Michael Bay.

What this does not tell us about Transformers 4:

That there is definitely going to be a Transformers 4.
That Michael Bay will be returning, either to direct or in some other role.

This does confirm though that things are moving behind the scenes, and there is an intention to do another live action Transformers movie.

Dark of the Moon Speed Stars Leadfoot Released at US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on November 03 '11 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A new Dark of the Moon Leadfoot toy - once again exclusive to Target - has arrived at retail. No, it's not the Deluxe one yet - this one is the Speed Stars version, which I must confess I'd actually forgotten about. It was sighted in the Christmas stocking stuffers section of the Tacoma, WA Target by 2005 Boards member ViceGripX.

Here's hoping we see the Deluxe one at retail very soon!

Eagle Custom Kup EKP Custom Figure
Posted by News Fetcher on November 03 '11 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Eagle has shared with us some new images of his EKP1012 custom Transformers Kup figure. This piece is basically a custom piece in the style of Jizai Toys' own releases, a poseable toy based on Generation 1 styling, and scaled down to "nano scale". By the look of the photos shared, we're guessing these are more at the garage kit end of the third party spectrum - pretty cool if garage kits are something that interests you.

Check out Eagle's blog for images of some of his other pieces, including a Powerglide, a Steeljaw, a Scourge and a teaser for an Ironhide (and Ratchet by extension).

Botcon 2012 Teaser
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '11 at 11:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The recently released Diamond Edition of the Transformers Timelines Stunti-Con Job - which was the comic for Botcon 2011 - came complete with a teaser for Botcon 2012. The teaser shows Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime - with blue eyes, not red, sorry Scourge fans - and comes with the following tagline:

An enemy thought defeated
A power thought to be legend
At Botcon 2012, Earth's survival rests
in the hands of just one robot...


Popular speculation immediately leapt on this as a chance to get the RTS Optimus Prime repainted as RiD Scourge - we've no proof of that or that this is an RiD set unfortunately, as much as we'd all love that.

What we do have a hint at here is that Botcon 2012 will be one of the most epic stories yet, and will be drawing the toy choices for its boxed set from the most recent wave of Classics toys, namely Generations and Reveal the Shield.
