Transformers Asia Premium Series APS-02 Movie Brawl
Posted by News Fetcher on December 28 '12 at 05:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Asia has posted an update to their Facebook page teasing at the next Asia exclusive premium series released. The banner posted confirms that APS-02 will be a Decepticon - and the blurred out text cannot hide the fact that the full name of the character is Decepticon Brawl. Like the APS-01 Striker Optimus Prime, we presume this will be the 2007 Movie Leader Class Decepticon Brawl, with an updated / premium deco.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Class Ripclaw
Posted by News Fetcher on December 27 '12 at 12:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Holy packaging errors Batman! Thanks to an error-packaged Beast Hunters Soundwave picked up at retail by 2005 Boards member Yobuster, we have confirmation of our third Predacon in the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters mainline! Ripclaw, a character previously featured as a Kre-O building set release, will also be getting a Deluxe Class toy as a part of what is assumed to be Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 2. Ripclaw features a pretty nifty looking dragon mode, and in robot mode, she features a pretty awesome battle claw on her right arm. Yes, you read that right - Ripclaw's bio, shown on this cardback, also confirms she will be a female Predacon villain for the Autobots to fight.

Check out the cardback scan by clicking on the thumbnail attached to this story, with massive thanks to Yobuster for sharing it with us all!

Transformers Prime Japanese Store Exclusive Nightmare Unicron (Darkness Unicron) Image
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '12 at 04:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have made one other update to their website today - they've added a page for their next Transformers Prime store exclusive, Darkness Unicron, now referred to as Nightmare Unicron. According to the story text on the linked page, Nightmare Unicron appeared when the spark of Gaia Unicron was sealed away and he represents the still partially unsealed "true" incarnation of the Chaos Bringer, the story is a little fuzzy on this detail by our translation.

As speculated, Darkness / Nightmare Unicron is going to be a black version of the Chaos Bringer, so in his Gaia Armor form he'll blend well with Darkness Megatron or Nemesis Prime.

The page also specifies the launch of a content, the "Second Arms Improvement Content", a customizing contest for Japanese fans. It runs from 9th of January to the end of February. There are various prizes including a sound stage with Optimus Prime voice clips, a new Arms Micron Shining R.A. O and giveaways of Nemesis Prime. By our reading Nightmare Unicron isn't being given away through this contest, so it's likely this is the Darkness Unicron teased for a March release a while back as a Yodobashi Camera store exclusive, only available at the Akihabara (Tokyo) and Umeda (Osaka) branches.

TFW Transformers Prime Thundercracker Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '12 at 09:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We're pleased to share with you this much-delayed gallery (thank the complication with photographing chrome and a chromed Arms Micron for that one). Here for your enjoyment as we wind down 2012 is the Japanese store exclusive Transformers Prime Thundercracker.

Thundercracker is the second outing of this particular tooling of the Transformers Prime First Edition Starscream, as he features the additional underwing boosters from Skywarp. Thundercracker is otherwise the same as First Edition Starscream, Skywarp, or any of the other releases of this mold - a tall and slender, yet sinister, winged Decepticon with a clever transformation and surprisingly good balance for feet with such small footprints. Baro "Silver Metal Version" is the Arms Micron, the chroming process unfortunately makes the Micron harder to put together smoothly and the finish chips easily, but it is very shiny.

All in all, Thundercracker is worthwhile if you're a Seeker fan, because he completes the trio of Starscream, Skywarp and Thundercracker for Transformers Prime. He's got perhaps the most vivid deco to be seen on this mold so far, with the blue and silver base and red details added with stickers really looking sharp.

Check out our gallery for over 100 photos of Thundercracker and his Arms Micron by opening the link below:

Transformers Generations Japan Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime In-Hand
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '12 at 08:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Alfes2000, who you may know from his blog site providing lots of great looks at new Japanese releases, has tweeted a few in-hand images of the Japanese Transformers Generations release of Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime. Evident from these images is that all the flat red on the US Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime is shiny here, and the blue is a bit darker to match - does the higher-quality paint job make the difference for you?

Transformers United EX Final Story Chapters Translated
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '12 at 08:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our fellow fans over at The Allspark have translated the final two chapters of the Transformers United EX story that came with Assault Master and Build Master. The identities of these last two characters are not left up to interpretation - Assault Master's story chapter, Hope for the New Generation, outright states that Assault Master was meant to be a spare body for Optimus Prime himself, but ends up being piloted by the human, Clouder - a character from Masterforce better known as the double-dealing Doubleclouder. Build Master's name is outright given in his bio as Gravedigger, a Constructicon introduced in a Find-your-fate book called "Dinobots Strike Back".

The story chapters end on a bit of a ambiguous cliffhanger note, with the final fate of the characters in particular Clouder, who comes face to face with the Decepticon High Regent Scrash (a villain alluded to in Operation Combination's phone-in stories in Japan in 1992). There's also a very cool allusion in the Unearthed Future story chapter, implying that relics from the Beast Wars - namely, the lair of Tarantulas - is being unearthed in the United EX time period by the Decepticons of Master Chaos.

Although the story ends on a cliffhanger, the Allspark reports that the story may continue down the line in some form in other media. Here is hoping that such a story comes to pass, especially after an ending like that!

Transformers GT Megatron
Posted by News Fetcher on December 24 '12 at 08:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
There's a new Transformers GT release on the horizon, as revealed in the February 2013 Japanese Hobby magazine scans. Along with two pages of coverage on the very sharp looking Transformers GT Optimus Prime there is the reveal that Optimus Prime's arch nemesis Megatron will also be getting the Transformers GT treatment. GT Megatron is set to be the third release in the Transformers GT series after GT Prime and GT Saber, and also appears to be using the same Alternity Nissan GT-R Convoy body as the others. He comes with a big gun (as is only appropriate for Megatron), a Decepticon Race Queen (in a purple and black outfit, Decepticon colors!). He's set to run for 10,500 yen and is themed after the "S Rosd Ralto MOLA GT-R" (or, from lower down the same scan, "S Road Reito MOLA GT-R"). No word as yet on a release date - or indeed, where this leaves GT Maximus, who was posited as a possible third release in the series.

These scans come to you courtesy of the Cybergundam blog.

Transformers Prime OPtimus Prime & Gaia Unicron Two Pack In Box Images
Posted by News Fetcher on December 24 '12 at 06:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our sponsors Robot Kingdom have uploaded a few pictures of the Asia Exclusive Transformers Prime Opimus Prime & Gaia Unicron in box. The box features the tech specs of both toys on the sides, and a flap on the front, with bios for Optimus Prime, Gaia Unicron and Gaia Optimus Prime on the inside. The Optimus Prime uses the Arms Micron tooling, with shiny silver paint on the chest windows and abdomen, plus metallic paint on the arms and shoulders. There's no stickers to apply though and the Arms Micron O.P. comes pre-assembled, unlike the Arms Micron release. Gaia Unicron likewise has a pre-assembled Arms Micron, plus a very shiny rock club arm, helmet and shoulders, all of which appear to match the chromework on the legs and chest (which were chromed on the mass release version too)

Open this link to check out the pics. The set is due for release on 28 December in Asian regions.

2005 Board member xterry has shared a photo with us revealing the character for Fansproject's mystery Toys For Toys Function X figure. Not a shocker to most fans, but the figure is definitely a homage to Generation 1 Chromedome! This is something truly exciting as fans of Headmaster toys, the Generation 1 Japanese cartoon Headmasters or the current IDW More Than Meets The Eye comic can have a place in their collection.

Mnemosurgeon fans can rejoice as well. Check out the pic and share your thoughts in our 3rd Party forum!

Transformers Prime Gears?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 23 '12 at 11:15 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Now, for something that's a bit of a question mark. 2005 Board member Deceptigtar, has received photos of an unreleased prototype of a Transformers Prime Gears from a source wishing to remain anonymous. This figure uses the Robots In Disguise Ratchet mold with the new head seen previously seen in his instruction pamphlet. The figure spots "gear" logos on his doors similar to the Revenge Of The Fallen toy of the same name.

Is this toy from the ghost of Christmas past? Or future? Either way, take this with a grain of salt. Speculate away on the 2005 Boards by clicking the title bar.

Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Video Game Trademark Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on December 23 '12 at 09:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
On December 17th Hasbro has applied for a new video game trademark titled Transformers Prime Beast Hunters.

The trademark was filed at United States Patent & Trademark Office under the registration number 85804514 with the description “Interactive entertainment software, namely computer game software, computer game programs, computer game cartridges, computer game discs; interactive multimedia computer game programs; downloadable game software for use in connection with computers, communication devices and mobile telephones; pre-recorded laser and video disc featuring an animated cartoon series”.

Previously, the same trademark was applied for Animated Series, Comic Books, Stationary, Clothing and Toys.

There is no clear idea what this game exactly is. Ultimately, it could be a game like the Prime WiiU which we saw recently or just a flash based online game. We’ll let you know as soon as we get more info. Stick with TFW2005 for the latest Transformers: Prime news.
