Posted by News Fetcher on November 13 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An image of iGear's PP04 Cliffjumper has surfaced over on ACToys. The new image gives a little indication of what this design will be, although it is a bit of a departure from your traditional Cliffjumper look. He's got a vehicle mode based on a Porsche 924s and there will be a Bumblebee reshell according to previous information on PP04.

Transformers: Prime Optimus Prime Blaster & Puzzle Book
Posted by News Fetcher on November 13 '11 at 06:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
According to Hasbro, they have big plans for Transformers: Prime. An entire season went by without seeing a single toy but we are now slowly seeing Transformers: Prime toy releases. The first wave is hitting shelves and by the time January we will see them all over the world. Majority of the fans are looking forward to the Deluxe and Voyager releases and we also have Cyberverse figures heading our way in the future.

But, a little known fact is the Transformers: Prime Optimus Prime Blaster. This blaster is the first Role Playing toy from the series and it’s actually two blasters in one toy.

The toy is also associated with the Tagline of the Transformers: Prime Toyline.

“Freedom is the right of all sentient beings... and toys are the right of all Earthlings!”

Description:
Freedom is the right of all sentient beings... and toys are the right of all Earthlings! Direct from Hasbro comes this exciting toy gun from Transformers Prime. Join Optimus Prime and his friends as they defend Earth from Decepticons and otherworldy menaces.

Unfortunately, we don’t have an image of the blaster to share with you. But I’m sure Hasbro will provide us with the official image soon.

Also in mid 2012, Reader’s Digest is set to release a Puzzle Book for little kids. We have with us a sneak peek of the book’s cover and it does feature never-before-seen Transformers: Prime character poses (wonder if these images are from the second season?).

The puzzle book is 96 pages and will cost you $8.99 (the price may vary). It is set to release on 5th June, 2012.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some new images have been posted over on Screamscape of the new Transformers the Ride, opening at Universal Studios Singapore next month. These new images show off the attraction's giftshop - complete with an awesome display of Transformers toys - and some ones posted over the last couple of weeks also show off the cafe that accompanies the ride. It's all looking very appropriately NEST and Autobot! Will the version opening in California next year look as sharp as this? We can only hope!

TFW Dark of the Moon Vortex Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on November 12 '11 at 02:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're back with another new Transformers toy gallery! This time we're taking a look at a Dark of the Moon toy that's exclusive to Japan - Dark of the Moon Vortex! Vortex was a remolded version of the excellent Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk with a new weapon - a remolded version of Roadbuster's chainsaw weapon. He's also got a new head which combines the original Generation 1 style with a healthy amount of modern reinterpretation. Overall? Vortex is a great little toy who fits in well with Classics or the Movie universe. Check out our gallery by clicking on the link below - all photos are by the talented SydneyY of our 2005 Boards!

Transformers Kabaya Staff Interview Translated - The Revival of Transformer Gum
Posted by News Fetcher on November 11 '11 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A fun sub-series of Transformers merchandising from Japan are the Transformers Kabaya kits. These "candy toys" are sold in Japanese grocery stores and come with a piece of candy - gum usually - and a model kit. The main appeal's the model kit of course. Transformers have had such model kits since the 1980s and these have recently undergone a bit of a revival, with both new takes on existing characters and also an all-new character in the form of Gaia Cross. Transformers Generations 2011 volume 1 featured an interview with Mr. Koutaro Hayashi and Mr. Masakazu Kunimitsu, who are working on the current series of Transformers gum. It's a short but very insightful interview, translated into English for your enjoyment by 2005 Boards staff member SydneyY! Read on and check it out!

TFC Toys Dino-Combiner Color Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 11 '11 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The TFC Toys Dino-Combiner robot is an unusual one. Sometimes we see pics and it looks a lot like a combiner set of Dinobots, other times we see new pics that push it back the other way. These latest images posted on ACToys push it squarely back into the "not actually the Dinobots" camp. The deco of the five as indicated is gray and black, with some colored highlights such as red. In the pics you can also see the partner release of this piece, the TFC Toys Star Cats Star Rescue, a completely non Transformers related piece.

The Transformers the Ride blog have released a video talking about the process of creating the all-new Autobot character who will act as a guide (and also, the vehicle) for guests enjoying the new ride. His name is Evac, and yes, he's getting a couple of toys (a Deluxe and a Cyberverse, both mainstream release and also at the parks, possibly with different decos to make the park versions that bit more special).

Transcript Of Transformers: Rescue Bots Trailer
Posted by News Fetcher on November 10 '11 at 06:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
We’ve told you at the Hasbro's Investor Day 2011, they showed everyone who was there, a trailer for their upcoming HUB Transformers Cartoon for little kids; Transformers: Rescue Bots. TFW2005 was the first to let everyone in on the new Hasbro initiative back in last March by revealing exclusive concept art thanks to Matrix Soul of the 2005 Boards.

Media people listening in at the 2011 event online, were only able to hear the trailer, even that was barely audible. Despite everything, we were able to transcript what we heard and here we are revealing the details for the first time.

We expect the trailer to hit the internet in the coming weeks, for the show is due to start in December. (the episodes are handed over to the Hub next week). Running with the idea of “Big Boy Brands In Little Boy Hands”, Transformers: Rescue Bots will educate little kids regarding Hazards & Safety. After all, “Knowing Is Half The Battle”.

As for the transcript, read on after the jump my friends!

Dark of the Moon Neoscanning Bumblebee Japan Exclusive
Posted by News Fetcher on November 10 '11 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some information reached us a few days ago from several Japanese Rakutan stores (via 2005 boards member Masabon) of a potential new Transformers Movie series Bumblebee. Yes, we know, how much love can that yellow Autobot handle, but please bear with us.

Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have also received the solicitation, however they have also released an image of the mystery recolor. This Neoscanning Bumblebee appears to be the Dark of the Moon Deluxe Bumblebee with a new deco - more silver for the body parts, a lighter yellow for the car parts, and different stripes, narrower and closer to the middle of the hood, and not carrying on across the roof like on the regular release. Masabon reports that this toy will be available after the release of Dark of the Moon on Blu Ray and DVD in Japan on 16 December.

It remains to be seen if there are any other changes to be made, and exactly how limited or exclusive this version of Bumblebee will be.

By ORIO from TFW2005:
3rd Party Group, Igear, has updated their Facebook page with two updates. One is for the recently announced Kup and Perceptor weapons. This set will come with a Sniper rifle and two hand guns for Reveal The Shield Perceptor and two hand guns for Generations Kup. The other update is for their upcoming PP05 and PP06 figures aka not-Ironhide and not-Ratchet. The pics for that update include a look at the many weapons and accessories for the figures as well as the figures themselves unassembled and still on their plastic sprues. It does look like progress is being made on the two figures!

NYCC Unit:E Comic Book In Stock at HTS
Posted by News Fetcher on November 10 '11 at 06:30 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Just a quick note - the NYCC Exclusive Unit:E comic book by Hasbro is now available at Hasbro Toy Shop. This book features a new look at Hasbro's properties new and old, setting up a "one universe" scenario for the first time. Along with the properties listed below in the official description, there are also brief one frame cameos for Transformers and G.I. Joe in there, showing that this initiative - when it gets off the ground, could affect us as Transformers fans. I've read the book, and IMO if you are a fan of these properties, any of them, the book is worth a look. Sets the tone for things to come.

Grab your copy here.

Official Description:

UNIT:E is a 24-page magazine in full color and fully illustrated by some of today's top-name creators. It takes a unique approach to Hasbro's catalog of heroes by fitting some within a narrative framework and placing them, for the first time, in one universe. This book answers every child's favorite question: "what if?" UNIT:E plays within this imagined scenario, examining Micronauts, Jem and the Holograms, Candy Land, Stretch Armstrong, Battleship: Galaxies, Action Man, and M.A.S.K among others. In addition to these fan-favorites, UNIT:E also introduces two new entities-Unit:E itself and Primordia. Hasbro's internal creative team "Haslab" created this project and is excited to present this unique look at some of Hasbro's most popular characters for its most passionate fans. The creators had fun with this and they hope the fans have fun reading it! Ages: Adult
