Dark of the Moon Nominated For Three Academy Awards
Posted by News Fetcher on January 24 '12 at 07:00 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Transformers: Dark of the Moon may have made around $1.1 Billion, but can it win an Academy Award? The nominations for the 2012 Academy Awards have been released and Transformers: Dark of the Moon is in the running for three Oscars.

The movie is up for Sound Editing (alongside Drive, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, and War Horse), Sound Mixing (alongside The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, Moneyball, and War Horse). And what is probably surprising no one the movie is also up for a Visual Effects award; going up against Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, Hugo, Real Steel, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Do you think Dark of the Moon has a chance? Do you think the mere fact that the film is even considered for the awards to be a crime against humanity? Hit the 'Discuss' link below to talk about these topics and more with the community over on the 2005 Boards.

Transformers Prime Upcoming Releases - Breakdown, Airachnid, Mini-Cons
Posted by News Fetcher on January 23 '12 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some interesting news for you now. A solicitation document from Takara-Tomy is doing the rounds, detailing items for the new mainline Transformers Prime series from Takara-Tomy. This document appears to confirm that an Airachnid toy is in the works! The bottom left corner of the scan also shows a (very, very small) picture of some prototypes, one of whom was identified as Breakdown.

So far, so groovy. Next up, there are some pictures of some new Mini-Cons. These are new molds, and seem to be more like Targetmasters than ever before. These would be the same ones seen attached to the remolded First Edition Optimus Prime in this news story. Now we know what their secret is!

This news comes to you from Kapow Toys by way of Full Metal Hero.

Spearmark To Bring Licensed Transformers: Prime Products To UK
Posted by News Fetcher on January 22 '12 at 06:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Transformers: Prime Toys aren’t the only Prime related stuff United Kingdom getting this year. On the December 2011 edition of Royaltie$ Magazine, it says that Spearmark; a leading manufacturer and distributor of children's licensed housewares and lighting is to distribute products based on Transformers: Prime under Hasbro’s permission.

This writer got his hands on the magazine and read below for the excerpt…

Hasbro Inks New International Deals

"Hasbro Global Licensing reached an agreement with Spearmark to make Transformers Prime and My Little Pony back-to-school and household items, such as lunchware, drinkware, and lighting. These items will be available in the summer of 2012 in the UK and Ireland.

Hasbro signed a licensing agreement with Universal Cycles Ltd. to bring to market skates, bikes, helmets, and other accessories based on the Nerf brand. The new outdoor recreational goods will expand the current line, which includes Nerf-licensed skateboards and scooters. Universal Cycles’ Nerf range will be sold exclusively at Toys “R” Us in Pan-European markets now through spring 2012. Ingo also signed on to create Nerf-branded electronic accessories. Products will be available this winter in Spain and reach the rest of Europe spring 2012."


Spearmark's official website is now updated for the upcoming product release.

"Roll out with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Ratchet, Bulkhead, and the rest of the heroic Autobots as they battle the evil Decepticons. Now that big bad Megatron has returned with a mysterious and dangerous element, Team Prime must prepare for an epic battle. But that's not so easy when they have to guard over Jack, Miko, and Raf -- three normal kids who’ve accidentally discovered the Autobots. As Team Prime works to defend Earth from destruction, the drama gets just as intense as the heavy metal action."
