A bit of an unexpected addition to the last Dengeki Magazine update we posted a few days ago. Thanks to SydneyY and Autobase Aichi as it has been also announced in the latest issue of Dengeki Hobby that there will be a limited Lucky Draw of the Dual Model Kit Optimus Prime. The Lucky Draw is based upon the Uniqlo design that was previously seen and assumed to be a one-off store display color scheme. It comes unassembled and does not come with the shop logo stickers or logos.

Transformers Generations 2011 Volume 2 Comic Translated
Posted by News Fetcher on August 25 '11 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Generations 2011 Volume 2 featured a lot of cool stuff, including a comic penned by Simon Furman and featuring art by Guido Guidi. This retro comic is done in the style of the old Marvel comics and features a crossover of characters from the Headmasters era alongside characters from the United and Henkei toy lines.

A translation of the comic has been done by The Allspark, with full creative input from Simon Furman and Guido Guidi - in effect this is an official translation and an excellent opportunity to read this short story. Some notes are also attached to the translation which are worh taking a look through, especially concerning Thunderwing (based on his Generations toy, not released in Japan & not planned for release in Japan) and Artfire (a new design based on a recolored Classics / Henkei Inferno with a Power Core Combiner Mini-Con as his Targetmaster, not planned for release by Takara-Tomy).

Click here to check out the translated comic over at the Allspark. Great job guys, my hat's off to you!

Transformers Dark of the Moon Japanese Happy Meal Toys
Posted by News Fetcher on August 25 '11 at 12:16 AM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
Our Transformers Feedback forum provides us with yet another news item: in-hand photos of some Japanese Happy Meal toys made to promote the widely-successful Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie.

While these figures lack articulation, they are fully transformable figures and even include label sheets for additional details. They are described as a cross between Gravity Bots and Activators due to the type of trigger mechanism to transform as well as the manner in which the toys change from car to robot.

Check out the images after the jump!

Posted by News Fetcher on August 24 '11 at 11:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Welcome, Transformers fan. I have summoned you here for a purpose.

I wish to share with you these in hand images of the upcoming Amazon.com exclusive Unicron with Kranix. These pictures were snapped by RampageSSS of the 2005 Boards - the lucky chap has him in hand already! Some things to note:

- Unicron has green eyes on this release, but red LEDs behind them.
- Unicron's packaging is marked 25th Anniversary of Transformers the Movie
- They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we'll leave it to you to check out RampageSSS' comparison images with Armada Unicron and TakaraTomy's Celebration 2010 Unicron.

As if that was not enough, a few more images have been posted over on ACtoys.net.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Cybergundam has posted scans from the latest edition of Dengeki Hobby magazine.

Also on show are the Tomica Optimus Prime and Bumblebee releases - die cast vehicles in a similar vein to RPMs. There's also a pair of Starscream jets, from the Tomytec scale model kit line, and last but not least, a look at both of the Transformers Chronicle reissue sets.

Transformers Prime Episode 22 Airs September 17 in the US
Posted by News Fetcher on August 24 '11 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Good news, everyone! MSN TV and Zap2it are both reporting that episode 22 of Transformers Prime - titled Stronger, Faster - is going to air on 17 September 2011! This is just one week after episode 21, T.M.I. is set to air.

There's currently no word on when episode 23, which just aired in Canada, is set to arrive on US screens. Hopefully we will see a nice uninterrupted run of new episodes through September and October - all the better to coincide with a certain billion dollar motion picture's DVD release.

Dr Wu Shark Clones Fully Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on August 24 '11 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Remember the mini-Sharkticons we saw a few days ago? Robot Kingdom have updated their Facebook page with more information on these unofficial non-transforming sharks. They're by a new third party group called Dr Wu, and they are going to be called "Shark Clones".

Here's the fun part though. The packaging is also transformable! It transforms from a tall box into a cardboard Sharkticon! Pretty cool as far as packaging goes, and a nice touch if I do say so myself.

Stay tuned for more information on this product, including pricing and availability.

TFcon Exclusive 2011 Exclusive Comic Pages Available For Public View!
Posted by News Fetcher on August 23 '11 at 11:30 PM
By Superquad7 from TFW2005:
The TFcon exclusive 2011 mini comic drawn by IDW's Alex Milne, colored by Josh Perez and written by Protoman is now up for the public to view (minus the dialogue).

The story tells of Fortress' transition from his original Planet Master body to his new Fortress Maximus upgrade, as well as introduces us to Toxin, the previously unknown 4th Decepticon Headmaster of Scorponok's gang. This story is based in the Japanese G1 cartoon continuity and happens before episode 1 of Transformers: Headmasters.

Also, a careful eye will note that the Stronghold figure and drawn character are slightly different due to the design not finalized at the time the illustration was completed. Additionally, the Toxin character shares the same body of G1 Chromedome, just sporting a different color scheme.

What are your thoughts of this story and these characters? Be sure to discuss your thoughts after viewing the images after the jump!

Posted by News Fetcher on August 23 '11 at 01:16 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Wow! Nearly a year passed since the start of Hasbro-Discovery Hub Television Channel. This time last year, we were all excited to take a look at Transformers: Prime, G. I. Joe Renegades and the awesome My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (The Hub just got 20% Cooler). So, we have a great line-up for the 2nd year starting with the Season 2 of MLP: Friendship is Magic on September 17th and after Episode 23, this writer is pretty sure that everyone is looking forward to the Season 2 of Transformers: Prime.

Anyway, another new project by The Hub is Transformers: Rescue Bots. The series is due to debut in 2012 and will focus on teaching children about Hazards and Safety. The toyline is releasing way ahead of the planned TV Series and today we are bringing you the Official Images, Descriptions and a TV Commercial for the Toyline.



*Speculation: The background song from the commercial may be the Theme Song of the TV Series?

Continue on for the Official Images and Descriptions.
