Dark of the Moon Robot Heroes sighted at Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on August 11 '11 at 01:46 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Another sighting, and unlike the others this one has seemingly come out of nowhere. TFW2005 member Yaujta has found something completely new at his local K-Mart: New(ish) DOTM Robot Heroes Puzzle Packs. While the Robot Heroes are simply just earlier Movie Robot Heroes molds repainted, the toys come with puzzles are single-packed instead of in pairs. In this wave are Megatron (with his Movie 1 Design), Optimus Prime, and Sideswipe.

Do you have any sightings to share with your fellow collectors? Well come on over to the Sightings Forum, and share the love.

Sci-Fi Revoltech Optimus Prime Double Update
Posted by News Fetcher on August 11 '11 at 09:45 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
A bit of a Double Punch of Revoltech news today. Thanks to the official SciFi Revoltech webpage we have a small preview of the upcoming Movie Prime's box, which is a window-less box like the rest of the Sci-Fi Revoltech line.

Unfortunately, the toy has also had it's release date pushed back from September 1st. The toy's new release date is September 15th. The alleged reason for the delay was so that they could make more of the product to meet the higher than anticipated demand.

Guess what? It's another first sighting! And this one is easily the most adorable sighting in a while, as TFW2005 member Hollywood Hoist has found and purchased the Bumblebee Garage from the Transformers: Rescue Bots subline at a Toys 'R Us in Washington.

Hollywood Hoist has also mentioned that "[the employees] initially said that it was recalled, but later said it wasn't due out until 9/20. They eventually sold it to me."

Unofficial WST Breakdown
Posted by News Fetcher on August 11 '11 at 02:15 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Many collectors who are a fan of the World's Smallest Transformers line (or WST for short), find themselves with a lot of gaps in their collection. For those who want some Stunticons are at least one step closer to closing these gaps with this release here. What looks to be a figured based very closely from the WST Lambor, this figure sports a familiar white and blue deco and also comes with two rifles!

One of the main reasons the Staff here at TFW2005.com wish to continually bring you news such as this is to continually alert buyers to "unofficial" products. This product, along with others, are not manufactured by either Hasbro or TakaraTOMY, nor do they hint at any official revival of the WST series.

If you are interested in other WST figures that are also made in an "unofficial" capacity, you can always check out the WST Customs found in the Legends And World Smallest Transformers Customs Gallery!

iGear Update - PP05M Medical Specialist, Preview Colors Scheme
Posted by News Fetcher on August 11 '11 at 01:30 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
iGear recently updated their Facebook page with a Photoshopped image of their PP05M Medical Specialist that bears a striking resemblance to another fan-favorite chief medical officer. While there is a disclaimer present on the image stating that this may not be the final color scheme chosen, it's likely that the final product could end up looking very close.

iGear, much like other "3rd party" companies, often listen to the fan's responses on items such as these, and TFW2005.com members have already been chiming in with their opinions of what they would like to see and not see. Are you happy with what you see when you click the image or do you see something you feel could use some attention before this product is released? Be sure to discuss your thoughts with others here!

By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Thanks to TFW2005 Contributor Jarodimus, we now have a look at Perfect Effect's next product, known only as PE-12. Just what is this product? Not much is known, except for that it is a motorcycle that may or may not transform that can be ridden by smaller Perfect Effect toys (one of which may or not be included.) What exactly could this product be? Is this a Perfect Effect Junkion? Maybe an Armada Sideways? Speculate and discuss away in the thread.

Auto Assembly Update Regarding Recent World News
Posted by News Fetcher on August 09 '11 at 09:46 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
The European Convention Auto Assembly has issued a statement regarding the convention and recent world news. Please, read on if you are planning on attending this weekend.

Hi everyone,

In light of the recent, saddening news coming from various cities around the UK, the Auto Assembly Committee has been flooded with questions, as you might imagine. Our response has been purposefully delayed and carefully considered - we are sure you will understand that we are faced with a unique situation and we wanted to take the opportunity to consider every possible eventuality.

To anybody who doesn’t know, there have been reports of isolated pockets of civil unrest in Birmingham. West Midlands Police have confirmed they will have a very large Police presence on the streets tonight to ensure that they continue to calm the situation. Like everybody in the UK right now, we are thankful for the great job that the Officers are doing at present in such difficult circumstances.

Nevertheless, we are pleased to announce that as things stand, Auto Assembly 2011 will go ahead as planned... and friends...it is going to rock! As the song goes, “Nothing’s gonna stand in our way, not tonight!”

Now, we are keeping a constant eye on the news and on official Police press releases so, if this situation changes we promise we will make an announcement the second we find out. But rest assured, we have no intentions whatsoever of cancelling Europe’s biggest and best Transformers convention unless we are presented with absolutely no alternative. The show, as they say, must go on!

However - it is of the utmost importance that all our convention goers please bear a few things in mind to ensure that we all have a fantastic and most importantly, a safe convention this weekend.

1. Auto Assembly 2011 is still ON
2. Allow extra travelling time to and from the convention

By ORIO from TFW2005:
Reprolables.com has sent out an update via their e-mail detailing all of their latest sticker assortments available now. They're covering all of the bases in this update with stickers for G1 toys Grotusque, Skyhammer, Landfill, Horri-Bull, Quickswitch and Hosehead.

Need more Junkions on your classic shelf? They have you covered there as well with two new upgrade sets for Reveal The Shield Wreck Gar. New sets for Reveal The Shield Perceptor and G2 Optimus Prime have been added as well.

If Reflector is your type of bot they have two new sets available. One for the original Reflector and one for the Perfect Effect Scouting Force X set.

There's still more, but you have to check out the full list after the jump!
