These new images show the decos of the five Combaticons - Onslaught, Decepticon Brawl, Vortex, Swindle and Blast Off - as they were exhibited at Toy Fair 2012.

Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '12 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Last but by no means least is Kotaku's coverage of Transformers Fall of Cybertron. Kotaku has a video with text narration - no voice over - so you can hear the in game SFX and some very cool voice over interaction between characters - including a conversation between Optimus Prime and Perceptor. You can also hear Jazz and Bruticus' voices, and they are in a word, perfect!

15 Things You Need To Know About Fall Of Cybertron
Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '12 at 02:00 PM
By ORIO from TFW2005:
Gamesradar.com has updated with a very cool article titled "15 Things You Need To Know About Fall Of Cybertron". One of the coolest things revealed in this article is that Gregg Berger will be voicing Grimlock. Now, every thing on that list has detailed summary about it, but we'll break it down to a simple list for you.

The plot begins immediately after War for Cybertron

It has one campaign with different characters

At least one Transformer has more than two forms

Every Transformer has a unique ability

Like Jazz's a grappling hook...

Or Optimus Prime's control of the massive Metroplex...

Or the Combaticons' ability to turn into Bruticus...

Grimlock is in the game

...and he can transform into a fire-breathing robotic T-Rex

You can buy and upgrade gear

Cybertron is no longer flat

Nolan North voices an archeologist

There's more ammo this time

There's no campaign co-op

Character creation is insane

CM's Corp Minerva Nightbeat Edition Official Images
Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '12 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
CM's Corp have updated their homepage with some official photography of their upcoming Gutto Kuru Minerva Nightbeat Edition. The figure is a recolor based on the Headmaster partner to Nightbeat, whose mold was also used to make Minerva originally. In the vein of the US-themed set, there is also an additional Hi-Q head included for use with the upcoming CM's Ginrai to give him his US look - it's a really cool little add on, and very appropriate given we're about to return to the Marvel Generation 1 comic universe this July, where Hi-Q was a major character!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
eagle800524 has shared with us images of his latest third-party project - a 13cm tall resin kit version of Decepticon Scourge. Modelled after his appearance in Transformers the Animated Movie and Generation 1 Season 3, this garage kit version of Scourge combines the look of the original with the poseability of a modern design.

It also comes with a pack of molded resin spaceships, including Galvatron's command ship from the Animated Movie and a pair of the Sweeps.

The whole thing is a limited run of 50 pieces worldwide, so it's a true garage kit item with all the charm that comes with it.

TFC Toys Rage of Hercules New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on February 20 '12 at 01:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TFC Toys has updated their Facebook with new images of their Rage of Hercules set. The set adds more parts to their Hercules combiner set including a new head with optional "rage" face, shoulder and forearm add-ons for a closer to Generation 1 look on the arms, plus a new different gun. Revealed in these images is that most of these combiner parts look like they can also double up as other parts, such as cabs or other vehicle bits - like Hercules itself, it seems his add-on will be a bit more than merely some spare parts used when combining.

Power Core Combiners to be Released in Japan?
Posted by News Fetcher on February 18 '12 at 06:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is an interesting little nugget of news for you now from Takara-Tomy's Hisashi Yuki. On Friday at 9pm Takara-Tomy hosted a Twitter session where fans put on their Generation 1 DVDs and tweeted as they watched, and Hisashi Yuki joined in the conversation! Along the way he hinted at a possible Japan release for the Power Core Combiners line - which until now has been limited purely to recolors of its Mini-Cons for its Japanese release.

We are considering (the domestic release of) Power Core Combiners. I can positively say we will not disappoint you....

Don't take this as a solid confirmation - but it is certainly something to watch. Will the toys be recolored for their Japanese releases? Will we see some fan-pleasing recolor versions, for example Heavy Tread (pictured at left) as Decepticon Brawl or Undertow as Generation 2 Autobot Manta Ray?

Speculate away by hitting the discuss button, and watch this space for further updates!

As always a huge thanks goes out to 2005 Boards staff member SydneyY for his help with translating this and bringing it to our attention.

With the news of the seventh set in the six figure Hercules set being announced, now seemed like a great time to share with you these latest two galleries of the TFC Toys Hercules project! Here for your viewing pleasure are Dr Crank and Structor - the fourth and third members of the team to be released, both by TFC Toys and also by the numbering on the original Generation 1 backer cards for the toys they were based on. Funny coincidence, that one!

As with the rest of the set, these two are big, chunky figures, far removed from the more intricate, delicate feeling offerings of FansProject or Perfect Effect. That is not to say they are flawless though - Dr Crank really has a hard time supporting that massive crane on his shoulder, and Structor's shoulders click rather loudly! However, both are still good, fun releases, with enough features and mass to them that they go some way to justifying their wallet-slaying pricetags.

TFC-007 Rage of Hercules set announced
Posted by News Fetcher on February 18 '12 at 02:30 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Thanks to TFW2005's very own Seth Buzzard, we now have an image of an upcoming TFCToys product into the Hercules line, this time being an expansion set for the now completely released Hercules. Called the Rage of Herclues set, this set comes with a new headsculpt (with an optional "Rage Face"), forearms, shoulder extensions, and the gun we first reported a few days ago. As well as these new parts, the set also contains the 7th Bio Card for Hercules itself, and a new poster.

As well as this banner that was on show at the AOD Convention in San Francisco, Seth Buzzard also reports on Twitter that the planned TFCToys exclusive was not available at the show, as it was held up in Customs.
