Reprolabels.com November Update!
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '11 at 10:30 PM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Delta Star sends us a November update for some new Reprolabels sets for the month of November. Among them are additional labels for Fansproject Backfiery, Generations Drift, DotM Human Alliance Leadfoot (one each for the American and Japaense releases), and a personal favorite of ol' Superquad7 would be the iGear Coneheads.

Delta Star also really enjoys Micromasters (especially the obscure ones), and another set he's made is one for the Micromasters Sports Car Patrol. There are sets for both the US and the Japanese releases.

Along the Generation One vein, anyone looking to relabel their G1 Action Master Gutcruncher will have to wait no more (if they have one in their collection, as he's more of a rarity!), as the set is based on the original stickers, but with more chrome.

Reprolabels also ventures into sets other than Transformers and has made a Power Rangers ammendment set, which has the distinction of being FREE!

Check out the photos of the sets after the jump!

Transformers Rescue Bots Boulder Sighted
Posted by News Fetcher on November 20 '11 at 02:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Rescue Bots news continues to roll in - this time it's a new toy sighting! Boulder the Construction-Bot, one of the new Autobots on the team in Transformers Rescue Bots, has been sighted at US retail! He was found at the Lynnwood, WA Target by 2005 Boards member ArchAngelz. No word yet on where the fourth member of the team, Blades, is at - he was in a previous wave which there's been no reported sighting on.

Remember you can always find out what is new in your area and share your own findings in our Transformers Sightings board.

TFW2005 fun fact: The name Boulder is new to Transformers, but is not new to transforming robots. The Rock Lords, a spin off of Transformers' great 80's rivals the Go-Bots, featured a heroic character named Boulder.

Transformers: Prime First Edition Deluxe Bumblebee Video Review
Posted by News Fetcher on November 20 '11 at 06:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Protoman’s back!!! And he’s bringing us the Video Review of Transformers: Prime R2D---- I mean Bumblebee.

Bio:
He's a hot muscle car, and also the Autobot who's been on Earth the longest. So he knows humans best, which helps explains why he's so serious about looking after Raf. Bumblebee's voicebox was damaged on Cybertron, so he "talks" in bleeps and blurts. He may make mistakes, but he's eager to please Optimus Prime.

Yes, here’s Transformers: Prime First Edition Deluxe Bumblebee (with Honey!)

Walmart Power Core Combiner Value Packs Sighted

By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Are you a fan of the short lived Power Core Combiners line, and were you disappointed since the later waves were difficult to find? Just in time for the holidays, value packs bundling the later wave PCC Commanders with 5 packs have been sighted at Walmart. The later waves had more appeal than the initial waves, arguably because Hasbro had saved the best for last.

Transformers Prime toys were found at retail yesterday, and today, we carry on the Transformers Prime love with a Transformers Prime toy gallery!

Encore Devastator in Hand Images and Hong Kong Bonus Coin
Posted by News Fetcher on November 18 '11 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Facebook Group Planet Iacon have shared some in-box images of Transformers Encore Devastator in package. These images show the first Transformers Combiner in his first re-release since the 1990s, and confirm contrary to the original promotional images that this release is 100% accurately colored to the original toy. (The promotional pictures used an old version that was partly repainted from a Diaclone prototype from about 26 years ago).

Also coming with this release in Hong Kong in the vein of the Masterpiece Transformers promotional items is a commemorative coin. This special coin is emblazoned with Devastator's head and features the month of release and comes in a uniquely styled packaging.
