Transformers Prime Season 2 to Premiere in early 2012
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '11 at 03:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In a recent Q&A on the official Transformers Facebook page, Transformers Prime executive producer Jeff Kline was asked the question of when more Transformers Prime would be heading to our screens. His honest response is that he has been told it would be early 2012 (he figures late January to early February) and not November 28 as previously reported.

Before all of you assume that Hasbro or The Hub misinformed the fandom with the November date, please remember: plans change. We at TFW2005 believe the original plan may have been for this month, but that the complexity of the series and the dedication of all involved to make the best show possible led to the new season being put back.

Some other interesting information is covered in the brief Q&A, including how the cast was chosen (surprisingly Jeff Kline does not consider Starscream as a must-have character, only the other three members of the big four, Optimus Bumblebee and Megatron), plus addressing the subject of Andy Pessoa's changing voice and his continued role as Raf. Don't worry - he's staying on.

Check out the full Q&A on the Transformers Facebook page.

Coming in March 2012 from IDW is GI Joe Classics Volume 14. This volume collects issues 135 to 145 of the original run of Marvel GI Joe comics - and includes the four issue arc of issues 139 - 142. These four issues were a crossover with the Transformers and were released as a prequel to the then-upcoming Transformers Generation 2 comic series, and explains where Megatron got his new tank body from that series. This is one of the few times these rare issues of the Generation 2 comic canon have been reprinted and are worth checking out if you are a fan of the Generation 2 comic series.

TFC Toys Star Cat Rescue Defensor Version
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '11 at 03:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An item we've not really reported on previously due to the fact it's got nothing to do with Transformers is the TFC Toys Star Cats Star Cat Rescue robot. It's based on a Chinese CGI show and has nothing to do with Transformers really.

Well, except for this possible recolor. It seems the Star Cat Rescue toy is getting a recolor based on Generation 1 Defensor. Reportedly it's a limited run of 1000 pieces and will have a Defensor styled head (and if the enclosed sketch is anything to go by, a Defensor chest too). We're not sure if the reported two set release for the regular version will also apply to this one. Or indeed if this means a more Generation 1 inspired deco for the Dinobot set might be planned.

Simon Furman Interview from Auto Assembly Europe
Posted by News Fetcher on November 15 '11 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This past weekend, Transformers writer extraordinaire Simon Furman was a guest at Auto Assembly Europe in Uppsala, Sweden. 2005 Boards member SmokescreenSWE had a chance to interview Mr Furman about Transformers comics, future plans and of course Transformers 81. There's not a lot Simon could share about Transformers 81 - but he does mention a couple of things of interest. For one, in this new series, dead will probably mean dead - no miraculous resurrections. There are a few characters Simon killed off who he felt maybe ought to be brought back, although he doesn't want to resurrect past characters without good reason. Also of interest is the art style - the book will be retro in its look, going back to the feel of the older comics.

The various Maximus figures (Fortress, Grand and Brave) are some of the most sought after figures for various collectors.

Transformers Toy Concept & Design Images
Posted by News Fetcher on November 14 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Designer Alexander Kubalsky has shared a rare look at some actual Transformers design works on his Deviant Art account. These images show how the concept of a Transformers toy is developed, both as sketches and then in comparison to the gray prototypes. Some of the pieces Alexander worked on includes:

Universe 2.0 Hound
Animated Bumblebee signature transformation
Animated Rodimus
Hunt for the Decepticons Sea Spray (the sketch refers to it as a Movie 2 design, though Alexander himself calls it Classic, to further muddy the waters on which shelf this toy goes on)
Movie 2007 Camaro Concept Bumblebee

There's lots more on show as well - click here and check out Alexander's full Deviant Art gallery.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Maketoys have posted some full color images of the first of their three two packs that together make up their take on Devastator, Giant. This first two pack includes Excavator and Bulldozer, unofficial takes on Scavenger and Bonecrusher. They're yellow and black decoed in the style of the Generation 2 Constructicons - by account, a giftset release of the six following later may be in Generation 1 colors. Priced at 10,500 yen and standing 15cm tall, they are reportedly due for a December release. Also in this update is artwork of all six Giant members in color - giving an idea of what the remaining four will look like.
