Botcon 2012 Teaser
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '11 at 11:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The recently released Diamond Edition of the Transformers Timelines Stunti-Con Job - which was the comic for Botcon 2011 - came complete with a teaser for Botcon 2012. The teaser shows Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime - with blue eyes, not red, sorry Scourge fans - and comes with the following tagline:

An enemy thought defeated
A power thought to be legend
At Botcon 2012, Earth's survival rests
in the hands of just one robot...


Popular speculation immediately leapt on this as a chance to get the RTS Optimus Prime repainted as RiD Scourge - we've no proof of that or that this is an RiD set unfortunately, as much as we'd all love that.

What we do have a hint at here is that Botcon 2012 will be one of the most epic stories yet, and will be drawing the toy choices for its boxed set from the most recent wave of Classics toys, namely Generations and Reveal the Shield.

Possible Superalloy Targetmaster
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '11 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Cobra Zartan has shared some new CAD images of an upcoming Superalloy release. These images suggest that Superalloy may have some kind of Targetmaster release in the works. There's no other details right now, other than the fact that the renders show what might be a handle scaled for Masterpiece Rodimus' hand - could this be an unofficial custom Masterpiece Firebolt? Or is the handle just artistic liberty?

Stay tuned for more information.

Transformers USB Drive & Bottle Opener
Posted by News Fetcher on November 01 '11 at 11:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's a fun bit of random Transformers Movie series merchandise for you - Transformers bottle openers that are also USB Drives! These pieces are done in the style of the Autobot and Decepticon symbols, and feature light up "TF3" access indicators when attached to a computer. Plus, they double up as bottle openers. They come in 4 GB and 8 GB flavors. The price might be a bit off-putting though - $33.99 for the 4 GB models.

Press Release - Hasbro Investor Day 2011
Posted by News Fetcher on November 01 '11 at 12:15 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Last year on November 10th, 2010 it was a very special day. I’m sure many of you may remember our “TFW2005 Coverage Of Hasbro Investor Day 2010”. On that day Hasbro decided to reveal quite a lot of their upcoming plans for year 2011 and beyond. That was the very first time we received the news of War For Cybertron 2.

Today, Hasbro sent us a Press Release regarding this year’s event Hasbro Investor Day 2011.

However, we are not exactly sure what Hasbro is planning to do this time because last time they surprised us with many many many things.

Most likely we’ll hear news regarding Hasbro’s plans for the Holiday Season and the upcoming movies G. I. Joe: Retaliation, Stretch Armstrong, Battleship, Micronauts, Candy Land and Ouija.

During the Hasbro 3rd Quarter Earnings Call 2011 CEO Brian Goldner mentioned that they are hoping to tell us about the next Transformers movie very soon.

Larger Than Life: Designing Fall of Cybertron's Set Piece Moments
Posted by News Fetcher on October 31 '11 at 06:00 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
On this latest Game Informer article regarding Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, High Moon Studio tells us about the interactive storytelling of the the upcoming game.

In video games, there is always tension between story and gameplay. Storytelling is traditionally a passive experience, while games are inherently interactive. To help smooth out the integration of these two disparate forms, High Moon starts by looking at the larger story beats and then builds levels around those concepts. “We look at what we absolutely need to tell in our story, and then there is a lot of back and forth between the teams,” Carter says. “Designers approach a game from a standpoint of 'what is fun,' but then we have to steer that back and make sure we’re getting our story across. Making a game is really a lot of back and forth.”

Designers spend a lot of time looking at references during these exchanges, drawing inspiration for how to shape a cohesive story that is also fun to play. “At the time that we started on the Grimlock level the Dead Space 2 demo had just come out, and I told everyone that they had to play the first level of the game,” Carter says. “Because it was scripted, it’s very cinematic, but at the same time they did a lot of things where you’d be walking down the hall and a character would jump out at you and then the camera would zoom around and showcase the animation and sound, but it was all seamless. The player didn’t feel pulled out of the game. That’s good storytelling for games.”

SRC Legend Heroes Quintesson Judge Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on October 31 '11 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We recently got a chance to have an advanced look at the first release from new third party Transformers group Super Robot Creaticon. Super Robot Creaticon, or SRC, are making a range of Legends class sized pieces which they are calling "Legend Heroes" and their first release is the "Q's Judge". It's a Legends Class scaled Quintesson, and as far as first releases from new third party groups go, it's a very good and strong start. Excellently detailed, the piece captures the menace of the five-faced alien judges from Transformers the Movie and Generation 1 Season 3. There's some nice touches in there too - read on by clicking the discuss link below to check out our full review.

Alternatively, as a picture says more than a thousand words, click on the link below to check out the full gallery for a better look at this new third party piece.

Dr. Wu Replacement Protector Face Unveiled
Posted by News Fetcher on October 29 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Third-party group Dr. Wu has updated via ACTOYS with yet another upcoming product by them, this time being of a replacement face for the FansProject Protector armor set, giving the toy a smoother and more traditionally-styled face. One that won't stop staring at the text of the news story.

Dr. Wu is also producing Non-Transforming Sharkclones, and a light-up Unicron head for the Armada mold or it's various reuses.

UPDATE: TFW2005 member Bountyan has updated us on this item, informing us that there will be two versions sold: one with a normal face (The one shown here in this news story) and one with "Glasses", which is presumably based on the visor that Rodimus used in the 1986 movie.
