Botcon 2012 Octopunch
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '12 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
News reaches us from ACToys that there's a new Botcon toy revealed. This one is Octopunch, based on Hunt for the Decepticons Sea Spray. We've only got vehicle mode pictures, but it's clear from these that the deco has been chosen to evoke the Pretender shell of the original in robot mode as with Metalhawk.

This new report lends more credibility to a rumored list of exclusives posted a while ago over on Seibertron, which named a whole bunch of additional at-show toys including Octopunch, and also named Metalhawk as a reuse of the Thunderwing mold long before he was unveiled. Could the following also be coming soon:

Spinister - Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk; Kickoff - Reveal the Shield Jazz; Shattered Glass Swindle - Universe Classics Hound; Shattered Glass Junkions - Reveal the Shield Wreck Gar / Generations Junkheap

iGear Herbie Bumblebee and Black Rager
Posted by News Fetcher on January 08 '12 at 09:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have updated their Facebook page with a few pictures of two potential recolors of their past releases - a black version of Rager, and a Herbie inspired version of their Bee! The Herbie Bumblebee is a cool looking piece and a great little tribute to the central car from the much beloved Herbie movies.

Black Rager, on the other hand, is a version of iGear's not-Huffer Rager - but in black. It's a possible homage / callback to the E-Hobby version of Huffer from their Minibots pack that also gave us another white Bumblebee - Bug Bite.

IDW More Than Meets The Eye Siren Design by Alex Milne
Posted by News Fetcher on January 07 '12 at 12:45 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Fan favorite artist Alex Milne has updated his Deviantart account with his version of Siren from IDW's new upcoming comic series, More Than Meets The Eye. Alex goes onto elaborate in his post;

so i figured since he is on the cover to issue 2, i'd show him off here as well
this is the design i came up with for Siren. this time i used more of the TF Prime look for him then WFC. there is a little amount of WFC, but its more a prime based look.
i think the thing i liked most about working on this, was i had this toy as a kid. i remember all the times playing with him. he was my favourite of the second wave of headmaster toys.
well, back to work
enjoy

Botcon 2012 Metalhawk Head Sketch
Posted by News Fetcher on January 07 '12 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Botcon have revealed a sketch of what the new head on their convention exclusive Metalhawk will look like on Twitter. Surprisingly, the new head is not based on a robot form at all - but on the human head of the original Metalhawk's Pretender shell. The main body was already based on the Pretender Shell rather than the inner robot, but there was some speculation on what the head might be - with some thoughts that it might be the robotic head concept used for the 2010-11 Club Comic.

How do you feel about the first new "human" Transformer since 1989? Sound off on our 2005 Boards!

Botcon 2012 Ultra Magnus and Metalhawk Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on January 06 '12 at 04:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Reposting this bit of news here so it doesn't get lost in the big "OMG Botcon registration!" rush.

With the Botcon registration pages live, a pair of small pictures were posted of the complete Transformers Invasion convention exclusive set, revealing the remaining two toys that will be in the box. The pictures are large enough to tease at the toys used and the decos, but small enough to leave us in suspense for the full-on reveals in the coming days.

Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus seen here is a recolor of Reveal the Shield Generation 2 Optimus Prime, with colors inspired by his Diaclone ancestor Powered Convoy. The hood also has some mild flame details in a possible callback to Movie Optimus Prime... or possibly the Optimus Prime this mold was recolored from.

Metalhawk, the Autobot from the Classicsverse, is a reuse of the Generations Thunderwing mold. The robot mode is based on the design of Generation 1 Metalhawk's Pretender shell, while the jet mode is sort of inspired by the vehicle mode of the original toy - there's a few differences in there though.

Share your thoughts on the final two on our 2005 Boards by hitting the discuss button.

Botcon has updated their website with their next 2012 Botcon Exclusive. This time, it's Heroic Decepticon Treadshot! This figure is based on the Reveal The shield Jazz mold with a new head and the color scheme looks like it's based on a Armada Sideswipe homage.

Heroic Treadshot joins the already revealed Shattered Glass Tracks, Shattered Glass Soundwave and Classics Gigatron figures from the 2012 Invasion Botcon Boxset. Two more figures left to be revealed; Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus and a Classics version of Metalhawk!

Botcon will be held in Dallas, TX April 26th-29th at the Hyatt Regency.

Headrobots Project Updates

By ORIO from TFW2005:
3rd Party Group Headrobots, has stopped by the 2005 Boards to announce some new projects and give us some updates on previous announced items.

The update includes:

Centurion - Based off of their previous Headmaster releases, this project shows three heads you can use with your existing G1 Fort Max's smaller figures. It will feature a US style head, Japanese style head and a Bonus Power Sword. This item is a limited release item and Headrobots isn't expecting big sales from this so the retail price is higher. Preorders should be up within 24 hours.

Big Road - An unofficial Trailbreaker figure, looks very similar to the G1 Cartoon model

Drone - Conversion kit to change Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk into an updated version of Whirl

Blood DX - A follow up to their previos Bludgeon upgrade, this kit will upgrade your movie deluxe Bludgeon figure into a skeletal warrior.

Headrobots states that after Centurion is released, Blood DX or Drone will be their next release.
