Chronicle EZ Collection Vol.2 Images
Posted by News Fetcher on September 01 '11 at 07:15 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Thanks to Amazon Japan, we now have images and information regarding the next batch of the EZ Collection toyline in Japan. Included in this set are Prowl and Silverstreak (who is made from the Reveal the Shield Prowl legends mold, with remolding done to remove the lightbar), Hound, Rodimus, Starscream, Skywarp (who is a redeco of RTS Starscream), and (surprisingly enough) G2 redecos of the RTS Optimus Prime and Universe 2.0 Megatron molds.

The eight figure assortment is to be released on December 10th, 2011 in Japan and will be sold in cases of twelve.

Diamond Comics Shipping List for 7 September
Posted by News Fetcher on August 31 '11 at 02:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
D-Drive has sent us the Diamond Comics Shipping list for next Wednesday, 7 September! There's just one comic on the list for next week - Transformers Ongoing 25, a part of the Chaos event and part one of "The Last Story on Earth"! (and also the incentive cover)

TRANSFORMERS ONGOING #25 (also it's incentive)

Mike Costa (w) o Brendan Cahill (a) o Marcelo Matere, Cahill (c)

"The Last Story on Earth" part 1 of 3! While there is much "CHAOS" on Cybertron, there's no less bedlam here on Earth as our remaining Autobots investigate the accusation that Spike, their trusted human ally, murdered a TRANSFORMER in cold oil(?) Now it's up to our heroes to find the truth and decide the fate of human/Cybertronian relations for years to come! Prowl and Jazz take center stage!

X-Transbots Wheelie Final Sample Images
Posted by News Fetcher on August 31 '11 at 02:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some new images have surfaced of the X-Transbots Wheelie figure. This unofficial third party item copies and upscales the event-only Jizai Toys Wheelie - this version is roughly the size of Masterpiece Grimlock's sword so is approximately in scale with Scout Class figures. The name, logos and packaging are all direct copies of the real Transformers details - making this even more of an outright copy of Hasbro's IP than nearly any other unofficial product out there.

Release details are currently unconfirmed, but the price is expected to be in the range of $35 to $45.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
News now for our friends in the Netherlands - Transformers Prime will be arriving this Sunday 4 September! In the Netherlands, TF Prime will air at 7:50 am on Nickolodean! No word on if the show will be the English language version or a dub. The early timeslot may not suit fans like us, but it's Prime (bad pun I know) time for the kids getting up and having their breakfast.

This news comes to you from Nickolodean's NL page, by way of Transfanclub.net.

Mastermind Creations Greatshot and Shadow Maru
Posted by News Fetcher on August 31 '11 at 10:31 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Mastermind Collectibles have posted a pair of images on their Facebook wall, showing off the alternate versions of their Hexatron. Previous images had teased at three different Hexatrons - we already knew that Terminus Hexatron would be an unofficial Sixshot, but revealed here are Grandus Hexatron and Shadow Hexatron, who are based on the other two variations on the Sixshot toy released in the 80s and 90s. Grandus Hexatron is a version based on the Transformer Greatshot, from Transformers Victory, complete with all the design variations. Shadow Hexatron is something I never thought I'd see - an unlicensed Brave toy! Shadow Hexatron is based on Shadow Maru, a character from Takara's 1994 Brave series anime Brave Police J-Decker. While he's not a Transformer like Sixshot or Greatshot, he recycled the same mold.

Check out both the images and share your thoughts on our 2005 Boards.

IDW Marvel Transformers Classics Volume 1 Information

By ORIO from TFW2005:
2005 Board member Quixote Prime has stopped by to share some information about the newly released IDW Transformers Classics Volume 1 Collection. This collection is comprised of issues #1-13 of the Marvel Comics Transformers comic. In previous reprints of the Marvel Comic, characters and issues that feature characters owned by Marvel we're omitted from the reprints.

Well, thanks to publisher IDW, you can enjoy seeing the stories featuring characters such as the Amazing Spider-Man and Circuit Breaker in all their complete original G1 glory.

This new release also features the following:

Marvel's G1 Transformers Comic presented in sequential order

Recolored pages

Guido Guidi Optimus Prime cover

Quixote Prime has also provided us with scans showing off some of these images. Click the title bar to check them out and then share your thoughts on this news in the thread on the 2005 Boards!

Last Stand of the Wreckers Hardcover Edition
Posted by News Fetcher on August 30 '11 at 02:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An interesting listing has appeared on Amazon for a hardcover version of Last Stand of the Wreckers, the seminal series by James Roberts and Nick Roche that pretty much redefined Transformers comic book storytelling. What's so interesting - other than this excellent series getting some hardcover love - is that compared to the previous trade paperback release, this release clocks in at 172 pages - there's an extra 40 pages of content in there compared to the last release.

The Last Stand of the Wreckers Hardcover Edition is due for release in January 2012 and is priced at $29.99.

Unofficial Fortress Maximus on the way?
Posted by News Fetcher on August 30 '11 at 01:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Chalk up one more for the "rumors" column - an auction has appeared on Taobao listing a pre-order for something called G-02 Titan. The listing comes with a silhouetted Fortress Maximus, suggesting that this is a third party manufacturer's attempt at creating a modern update of Fortress Maximus, although what we here at TFW2005 can gather from translations of the auction listing is misleading at best. We're guessing it is a new version, though, due to the way the name is given in a typical format for a third party release. As always, watch this space and we'll update with more information as it becomes available.

One question remains though - if this is a G-02, what is G-01...?

By ORIO from TFW2005:
3rd party group, Renderform, has shown off some new upcoming projects at Gotham Collectibles in Vancouver over the weekend. 2005 Board member Trans4mers has been gratious enough to share some pictures with us. Suprisingly enough, TFW fan favorite character Erector seems to be getting some love in the form of an upgrade kit for Reveal The Shield Grapple. Included in the pics are;

Goldbug Upgrade Kit

Hubcap Upgrade Kit

Bumper Upgrade Kit

Erector Upgrade Kit

Vortex Upgrade kit

Darkwing Upgrade kit

Autobot and Decepticon sword and shield sets

Take a look at the images and join the discussion after the jump
