Generations Warpath Gallery Added
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '11 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
He might well be the last release in the Generations line - but Warpath makes sure the series will go out with a bang! Our Transformers Toy Galleries section has been updated with a gallery of this smooth final release (for the time being) in the Transformers Generations line. Warpath is a fantastic toy with a good, solid action figure styling and great sculpted in details. He's got a simple transformation which works extremely well in his favor - and a cool automorph head reveal as well. All in all, this is a worthy update to Warpath that embodies the true spirit of the classics series.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I'll stop singing Warpath's praises here and direct you to the gallery, which has over 70 pictures documenting all that is awesome about Warpath.

Transtech Cheetor and Generation 2 Ramjet Release Date and Priced Semi-Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '11 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Collectors Club has sent out an email and tweeted on their new Twitter account about various things, including of most interest to those of us waiting, some hints at the planned preorder window for Animated Transtech Cheetor and Generation 2 Ramjet. In order not to interfere with the major religious holidays this month, the preorders will not go up until the last week of the month. A series of posts on Twitter followed, clarifying that this meant, "from Monday 25 April onwards". Another post on twitter also hints that the price will be consistent with previous deluxes, which ranged from $42-$59. It won't be as low as $42 but definitely won't be as high as $59, according to the post.

The email also mentions that the free Sideburn figures will be shipping out after Botcon.

Like the picture attached to this post? It was posted on the new Transformers Collector's Club Twitter account. Talk about it here, or read on for the original text of the email talking about the release of the club exclusive toys.

Linkin Park’s Iridescent Confirmed To Be Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Single
Posted by News Fetcher on April 14 '11 at 02:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
This is it, folks! The confirmation of Iridescent single for Transformers: Dark of the Moon came from none other than Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park himself.

Updating his Official Blog, Mr. Shinoda stated...

"A few months ago, I got on the phone with Michael Bay, who wanted to discuss the possibility of our band continuing our run with songs paired with the Transformers films. We (he, his team, and our band) all have enjoyed working together on the past two, and he wanted to discuss the ideas we might have for Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon. In particular, one song came up immediately. Ever since we started playing Iridescent live, the song has been a fan favorite at the show.

For the film, there’s a new, slightly shorter version of the song, which is floating around the internet now. We’ll be shooting a video for the song tomorrow, directed by Joe Hahn."


You can listen to the song at SomeKindOfAwesome.

So post any thoughts or questions in the discussion thread here. We will round them up, send them to Andy, and post his responses when they come back!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Currently being distributed to retailers in Japan and beyond is information on this year's Tokyo Toy Show Exclusive item from Takara-Tomy. This year, Takara-Tomy will be offering a two pack of black repaints - a black War for Cybertron Optimus Prime and a black War for Cybertron Megatron. An image has been shared by famitoy and relayed to us by catz of our 2005 Boards, which shows off what the set will potentially look like - although the image specifies it is not the final product but just an illustration.

We will keep you updated on more details of this cool set when they become available. The price is as yet unconfirmed but is said to be "not that different compared to two United figures".

Dark of the Moon Candy!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '11 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here's something fun for you - our first bit of Transformers Dark of the Moon merchandise has begun to hit shelves. It's a Dark of the Moon ring pop - a lollypop mounted on a ring you can wear on your finger as if you were a member of the candy treat lantern corps! It features Optimus Prime on the packaging and perhaps appropriately comes in "Berry Blast" flavor. It was spotted at the speedway in Sheridan, Indiana.

With this first bit of Dark of the Moon merchandise out, can more be far behind? The summer blockbuster merchandising juggernaut is coming, and its coming is being heralded by ring pops!

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TV Guide has updated with a synopsis for the upcoming fourteenth episode of Transformers Prime, Out of his Head. The summary contains one huge spoiler for the series!

Spoiler Alert! Read no further if you do not wish to be spoiled!

The synopsis offered for Out of his Head confirms the return of a major character who has not been seen in action since his initial appearance. This episode will mark the return of Megatron.

Here's the episode summary:

Megatron controls Bumblebee from inside his mind and influences his behavior at HQ.

Sounds like another home-run episode for the Transformers Prime crew!

Hasbro Investors Annual Report - Transformers and GI Joe Down, Marvel and Nerf Up
Posted by News Fetcher on April 12 '11 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Hasbro have posted their 2010 annual report, detailing their performance last year. Key points to take from this are, as helpfully picked out for us by 2005 Boards member and Hasbro shareholder influence82:

- Overall revenue was down in 2010 when compared to 2009, BUT operating profit was up, mostly due to lower taxes and depreciation.
- Sales for Transformers and GI Joe products decreased, but this loss in revenue was offset by an increase in Nerf and Marvel sales, in particular Iron Man 2.

One thing to remember from this - last year was a year without any form of Transformers fiction to drive sales. This year, we have Dark of the Moon and Transformers Prime to promote the brand, plus also to Hasbro's advantage there is Thor and Captain America: First Avenger hitting theaters this year.

So while 2010 might have been a bit of a "down" year, 2011 has the makings of a very good year for Hasbro.

The talented Marcelo Matere has shared some pencil work of Drag Strip from this year's Botcon set. The artwork is not inked or colored right now, so it might just be Arcee having a really bad day, but chances are, this is another look at the Botcon comic or bio card artwork. Check out the artwork on Marcelo's Instagram account.

Botcon has sent out an interesting image on their Twitter account. It's another city Transformer, done in Animated style! This time out, we're seeing the Trypticon prison, based on the city mode of Generation 1 Trypticon. The image, a panel from this year's Botcon comic book no doubt, is very atmospheric, complete with a Cybertronian acid rain storm. And according to the posting "wait till you see the guards!"

Check out the full sized original artwork on Botcon's twitter account.
