TFW Dark of the Moon Skyhammer Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on October 02 '11 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
All last week we shared with you Transformers Galleries counting down to the release of Transformers Dark of the Moon on DVD & Blu-Ray. Well, we had so much fun doing it, we've got one more gallery to share with you. Call it a "bonus feature" on the DVD if you like.

Taken by 2005 Boards Photo Staff member SydneyY, these images show off Dark of the Moon Skyhammer - a non-Movie Voyager character who transforms from a powerful robot into an attack helicopter. He's one of the best of the Dark of the Moon Voyagers, so I hope that you enjoy these pictures.

TakaraTomy Dark of the Moon Wave 6 & Campaign Items Released, Future Releases
Posted by News Fetcher on October 01 '11 at 09:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got a selection of news bits from Japan courtesy of Masabon today, as today is the release day for Takara-Tomy's sixth wave of Dark of the Moon toys!

First up, in hand images of the Japanese version of Human Alliance Leadfoot, who lacks the sponsor details - not just the Target logos, but all the rest, too, right down to the numbers on the doors.

Today also sees the release of the new Takara-Tomy Dark of the Moon MechTech campaign. Three items were released:

Starscream's Null Ray Sword, limited to 6'000 pieces, was available at Toys R Us Japan
Bumblebee's Plasma Blaster Cannon was available at Yodobashi Camera.
Barricade's MechTech gatling claw was available at Bic Camera (not pictured)

All three were apparently limited to 20 pieces per store, available with a purchase of 3000 yen or more on Transformers Dark of the Moon merchandise. They all sport that sharp looking black and silver deco, too.

Lastly the new releases include a catalog, which gives some future release dates for upcoming toys, include Wheeljack and Soundwave!

>November
DD-09 Human Alliance Soundwave 6300yen
DA-28 Striker Optimus Prime 9240yen
DA-33 Seeker Air Raid (Hasbro's Air Raid) 2730yen
DA-34 Deluxe Leadfoot 2730yen
CV-26 Cyberverse Soundwave 714yen

>December
DD-13 Deluxe Soundwave 2730yen
DA-31 Autobot Que 2730yen

Yes, you read that correctly - in Japan, he's going to be called Que, not Wheeljack! Could this be clearing the way to call the alternate head version Wheeljack later on, or merely keeping in step with the movie's dialogue?

Dark of the Moon Deluxe Leadfoot Japan Edition Image
Posted by News Fetcher on October 01 '11 at 09:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The latest assortment of Transformers Dark of the Moon toys has hit Japan, and with them comes a catalog showing some upcoming releases. One of the upcoming releases is DA-34 Leadfoot, a Japan-only single pack release of the Deluxe class toy that is slated for a Target exclusive two pack in the US. This image from a Japanese image board indicates that like the Human Alliance toy in Japan, the Japanese single pack deluxe will be a plain red car - no sponsor markings or giant target logo - not even a big Autobot logo to balance it out!

R.I.P. Gary Clark, aka Optimus Scourge
Posted by News Fetcher on September 30 '11 at 07:15 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
On Wednesday, September 28th, the TFW2005 family lost one of their own. Gary Clark, aka Optimus_Scourge, a former moderator and former photo staff member of TFW2005.COM, as well as a current moderator on our sister site ToyArk.com, passed away suddenly at his home. He was 34 years old.

He is survived by his wife and longtime TFW2005 member Luisa ("Arcee"), as well as his two sons.

Gary had a passion for Transformers and G.I. Joe. The only thing that seemed to surpass it was his passion for helping his friends and others in the collector community. Gary was always ready to meet someone new with a smile on his face and share his passion of collecting with others. The news of his passing comes as a total shock for countless members who had not only spoken to him recently, but had seen him at the last New Jersey Collectors Convention (NJCC) in April, and had planned to see him again in the next couple of weeks at the next NJCC.

Gary started as everyone does here at TFW2005 as a member. Over time he quickly gained the reputation of having a level-head, being incredibly friendly, and very out-going. Over the course of many years, he attended several BotCon conventions and became a close friend to many of us on staff. He became a moderator but his passion didn't stop there, and he also became a member of our Photo Staff. Due to circumstances beyond his control, Gary scaled back his participation from the site but could never let go completely, and was currently an acting moderator at our sister site, TOYARK.COM. He participated in numerous Transformers-related podcasts over the last few years.

Gary also met the love of his life on our forums, Luisa ("Arcee"), kindling their relationship at OTFCC 2004 and eventually getting married. To this day they hold the distinct title of being the first and only real-life love story to have happened thanks to TFW2005.COM.

Good news! The next waves of Transformers Dark of the Moon Deluxes has hit retail in Canada. Dark of the Moon Deluxe Wave 4 - Cyberfire Bumblebee and Specialist Ratchet - have been spotted by Cybertron.CA member jacobot at the TRU Brampton in Ontario.

But more importantly, Dark of the Moon Deluxe Wave 5 is also showing up at Canadian retail! Not even out in the US yet, but Darksteel, Air Raid and Autobot Armor Topspin have appeared in Ontario and Quebec at Zellers and TRU stores.

Rumor - Transformers Chronicle Shockwave and Ratchet
Posted by News Fetcher on September 30 '11 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's an interesting little observation passed along by Automaton Toys over on our sister site Cybertron.CA. On the recently released Transformers Chronicle reissues, the inner flaps depict some different Dark of the Moon / Generation 1 toy combinations. Optimus Prime's Chronicle release shows Dark of the Moon and Generation 1 Ratchet, while Megatron's box flaps show Dark of the Moon and Generation 1 Shockwave! Could this be indication of future reissues in the Transformers Chronicle line and the fulfillment of many a fan's earnest desire to own an original Shockwave, or merely a cruel glimpse at a possibility that may never come to pass?

One thing is for sure - if there is any further news, we'll have an update for you right here on the TFW frontpage. Watch this space.

Posted by News Fetcher on September 29 '11 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A quick nuggets of information for you from the Transformers Collectors Club today. Shattered Glass Drift, the Mech with the Mouth, shown off in issue #41 of the Transformers Collectors Club magazine (arriving now) has had a question hanging over his head for a while - guns or swords? Well, here's the answer straight from the TFCC's Twitter feed:

People are asking. Does SG Drift come with swords or guns? Well... He comes with BOTH! Big ol sword, two small swords and two small guns!

So there you have it, Shattered Glass Drift will have both swords and guns - just like a certain Merc with the mouth...

TFC Toys Unofficial Dinobots New Prototype Image
Posted by News Fetcher on September 29 '11 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Coming at you via ACToys is a new image (two actually but the other is largely the same and a little blurrier) of the TFC Dinobots. Exactly what these guys are was something of a question for a long while, but these new images appear to clear it up - they're unofficial third party Dinobots. Just check out how close to the original, official Generation 1 toy Swoop is. In lieu of real Dinobots from the good people at Hasbro, these might find their way onto a few shelves.

Also shown in the same thread is a new look at the TFC Toys Star Cat robot set. This one's got nothing to do with Transformers (its based on a different, Chinese animated show) but the toy design borrows a cue or two from Transformers. Worth checking out if you are a fan of TFC Toys work and want to support them branching out into more original properties.

Upcoming Transformers Movie Toys - Wheeljack, Mirage And Buzzsaw
Posted by News Fetcher on September 29 '11 at 10:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
TFW2005 Member and my good friend shadow2879 told us that he recently had the privilege to visit Hasbro.

Here’s a list of upcoming toys according to what he found out:

Two Movie Wheeljack/Que toys – One toy with the movie head and another with the “Classic” head [In my opinion they may have gone for a Transformers: Dark of the Moon Prequel Comic – Rising Storm Wheeljack]

Two Mirage/Dino figures

Mirage/Dino Human Alliance figure

Decepticon Remold of Mirage [Just like DarkSteel from Sideswipe]

Purplish Laserbeak repaint with a different head [Buzzsaw]

We thank Shadow for bringing us this juicy toy news. If these do go into production, then I’m sure many of you will have lighter wallets very soon.
