We previously reported a rumor regarding the next possible combiner project from 3rd Party Group TFC Toys, the makers of Hercules.

No 3rd Party Toys at Botcon 2012
Posted by News Fetcher on March 15 '12 at 07:00 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
A quick note to our fans regarding an issue that has been lingering around for a while. This year dealers who signed up for Botcon realized there was some new wording in the contracts related to unofficial product and how it will be handled at the show. The wording is as follows:
Quote:
Quote:
"Promoter and its designees, including Hasbro, Inc., each reserves the right to ban or deny display of any item for any reason. Promoter and its designees, including Hasbro, Inc., each reserves the right to confiscate any items that violates these rules and regulations. Exhibitor agrees to permit such confiscation without incident and agrees that all confiscated items shall become the property of Promoter or its designee and may be turned over to the appropriate authorities. Exhibitor herby [sic] waives and all claims against the Promotor [sic] or Hasbro, Inc. with respect to any removal of person or confiscation of items."
Basically - as a dealer, if you bring 3rd party, knock offs, or any other kind of unlicensed product to the show, Hasbro and/or Botcon can take it and throw you out.

This was very loose and could mean different things to different people, and several board members pushed for more clarification.

A Botcon representative posted a note he got back from Hasbro yesterday, stating the following:
Quote:
Quote:
Just got an email from the brand team and it reiterates what I know some of you have gotten in email responses from us...

*****************

As long as it is official Hasbro OR TakaraTomy product then they are official products. They can also sell officially Licensed TF goods from Hasbro or TT.

If it's either made by Hasbro or TakaraTomy it is officially licensed by Hasbro or TakaraTomy, anything else is a knock off or an unofficially licenced good.

Prime Cyberverse Legion Wave 2 Released in Singapore
Posted by News Fetcher on March 15 '12 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have received reports that the second assortment of Transformers Prime Cyberverse Legion toys has been released in Singapore. This assortment blends Movie and Prime characters in a best of both worlds approach.

On the Prime side of things, there is the addition of Breakdown to the Cyberverse series. On the Movieverse side of things, we have Evac from Transformers the Ride, the first transformable toy of Movie Mirage to date - he's a redeco of Revenge of the Fallen Legends Sideways, though - and a blue redeco of Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Soundwave.

Hopefully the Singapore sighting means these are also creeping into US warehouses and will put in an appearance at US retail very soon. In the mean time, read on to check out these in-hand pictures by 2005 Boards member Gunshot!

In the interview he discusses why the play pattern of Transformers is so popular, how the designers go about creating our favorite characters and why he thinks the brand will be something us fans we'll be telling our grand children about.

Transformers Prime Bumblebee VS Starscream Ultimate Opponents Two Pack Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 14 '12 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This past weekend, the new Transformers Prime episode Operation Bumblebee told a story of how the Autobot Bumblebee was defeated by MECH, who forged an alliance with Starscream. How appropriate then that recently released in Asia is a new Transformers Prime two-pack featuring all these characters!

With his grip on power weakening, Megatron finds himself vulnerable for the first time. Starscream is there to take advantage of it. But with leadership within his reach, Starscream must still deal with Bumblebee and the Autobots - a truly tough opponent to overcome.

The Ultimate Opponents set consists of redecos of First Edition Bumblebee and Starscream - Bumblebee now sports a more orangey plastic and some blue stripes which fade to black along the length of his bodywork, while Starscream is redecoed with purple highlights which you could consider to be "Dark Energon" - after all, Starscream has made use of it in the past.

The set also includes PVC figures of human villains Silas and a MECH Trooper, plus a DVD featuring the episodes Convoy, Sick Mind and Out of his Head - MECH's debut episode, and a Bumblebee focus two-part episode with a lot of Starscream screentime.

Overall, it is a fun set, great if you missed the First Edition toys last time out, or if you are a fan of redecos or VS sets. The set is already out in Asia, and it is also slated for a potential Canadian release.

Click the links below and check out our gallery! Stay tuned for more Transformers Prime toy goodness!

Botcon 2012 Transformers Invasion Comic Prelude Pages 5 and 6 Now Online
Posted by News Fetcher on March 14 '12 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Botcon 2012 homepage has updated with the final two pages of the six page preview comic to this year's Transformers Invasion. These final two pages quickly resolve the battle sequence chronicled in the first four pages and set up the story of the boxed set comic, ending in a cameo of a veritable legion of Primes and Matrix Bearers, including Sentinel Maximus and Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime, both of whom were last seen in the club comic's Balancing Act story arc having crossed over to there from 3H's Transformers Universe comics. There's also some rather pleasing cameos by a few other characters in the epic final panel.

Check out the whole story at the Botcon homepage.

Transformers: Evolution - Asian Market MMORPG Details, Images & Gameplay Footage
Posted by News Fetcher on March 14 '12 at 11:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Plethora of images and some Gameplay Footage has surfaced online for the upcoming Asian Market MMORPG Transformers: Evolution.

Produced by Net Dragon, this Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game will definitely be an instant success due to the popular fandom for games of such genre & Transformers Franchise, on the Asian region.

Set in the Transformers: Primeverse, this game sports some impressive graphics and gameplay (for a game of this category), judging by the revealed footage. The players will be able to pit against colossal Cybertronians such as Bruticus.

For those who cannot read Chinese, here’s a brief synopsis of the backstory translated for your reading pleasure.

“The brutal civil war of Planet Cybertron came to Tiger Pax. It was here, the main power source of the planet was jettisoned to the stars; The Cube is gone. To eliminate the Autobots who took refuge on Earth once-and-for-all, Megatron opened a Spacebridge and pushed the floating city towards the blue planet. Tiger Pax broke into two pieces; while one orbited around the Earth, the other half fell to the sea. Only Government Agencies and handful of humans knew of the existence of Transformers and Tiger Pax. To make matters worse, a Third Faction hunted Autobots and Decepticons alike and sought after the scattered remains of Cybertron.”

The game boasts numerous weapons including Star Steel Blade, Dead Star Turbine, Doomwalker, Black Hole Contract (which utilize energy from Black Holes*), Light Trajectory Gun, Thunder Track Gun, Chaos Star Wheel (The one Bumblebee is holding in an image)

*Using the energy of Black Holes is illegal in Cybertron. But “desperate times call for desperate measures”.

To go along with our previous news update from yesterday, we now have new images of the next product from Xovergen. The Trailerforce-01 is a new trailer upgrade kit for Classics Optimus Prime and G1 Powermaster Optimus Prime. These images reflect the combined mode of the trailer with both Optimus figures. It also gives a back view showing exactly how Classics Prime will attach. There is also a side by side comparison of the Trailerforce-01 robot mode standing next to Classics Optimus which gives a good sense of the size of this massive new project.

Cool Fanmade Lego Soundwave / Gameboy Crossover
Posted by News Fetcher on March 14 '12 at 12:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
So I was browsing the boards this morning when I saw that 2005 Boards member CodeXCDM had shared this Lego Transformers X Nintendo crossover someone had designed and I felt it was too cool not to share!

Based on the classic Nintendo Gameboy, this fan-designed Lego Transformer transforms into Soundwave! Just like the original Soundwave, he has cassettes - they are the game cartridges! And like the original, the weapons form up out of the batteries. The creation is officially named "Domaster and Tetrawing", and is the creation of Lego creator Julius von Brunk, who you might know of already for recreating the Super Mario Bros. 3 airship in Lego. Check out more of his work here.

This slice of cool and fun news comes to you via Gizmodo.
