By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
HK-TF.com have shared some images from the Toys R Us Hong Kong Dark of the Moon Midnight Madness launch event. See that toy at the left? That's a Lucky Draw Silver Bumblebee. One was given away per participating Toys R Us. There was also a huge case display of new and upcoming toys, including the truly gigantic Ultimate Optimus Prime, Decepticon Hatchet who is looking very nice, Thundercracker, and hiding out in the back of a few pictures is Human Alliance Basic Tailpipe. He's best visible in the Ultimate Optimus truck mode pictures where you can see his Mini-con is also a gun for the larger robot.

Click on the link above for the HK-TF pictures, which also include some awe-inspiring pictures of the toys taking up masses of pegs, and a cool Generation 1 Starscream cosplay. You can also check out some more pics taken by TFClub's HIGASHILIN by clicking here.

She is now rendered in blue and gray, with a few basic visual cues to Transformers Prime Arcee. Her bio is as follows:

Arcee has miraculously returned from fierce battle with Fallen alive and acquired fighting skill more than ever. She defeated her enemies with her ultimate conoring force and graceful weapon play.

Transformers Heat Scramble Collectible Card Game Images and Information
Posted by News Fetcher on May 15 '11 at 01:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Takara-Tomy have updated with some new information on the Transformers Heat Scramble Collectible Card Game. There are two pages, the first one details the cards in the starter set and the booster packs. The game's cards are divided into three types, Units, Episodes and Actions. Units are self explanatory - they are cards based on the characters of the movie series - all the characters of the Movie series, with the main cast getting multiple cards, though every character gets a card for each different mode seen on screen. Episodes are event cards, based on key scenes from the Movie series, such as the Autobots arriving on Earth, or Sam buying his first car. Action cards we assume are actions that can be taken during the game. The cards are ranked in terms of rarity - from rarest to most common, the grades are Super Rare, Rare, Uncommon, and Common. These are denoted on the linked page as SR, R, U and C.

All of the cards have absolutely gorgeous artwork that really captures the spirit of the Movie series, which is where the second page comes in. This page consists of a gallery of the artwork for all 79 cards in the set. Check it out! The artwork is incredible and shows how much work has gone into this side of the set. It's worth collecting the cards purely for the artwork, in fact!

The cards cover the events and characters of Transformers 2007 and Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. Here is hoping for the first expansion deck to cover Dark of the Moon, and future expansions to cover the other series of the Transformers mythos.

Official Word - The Twins are NOT in TF3
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 05:15 PM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
There has been a recent buzz for TF3, but not one you may think. Some how, the Twins got picked up by several blogs and then main stream media again, along with all their social baggage.

This story got referenced, and folks started to do the back and forth. Are they, aren't they? Then all the chatter that went along with their speaking style from the second movie came up. (BTW - that post was made by TFW2005 over a year ago, while things were still in heavy speculation mode.)

Anyway, we were contacted today by Paramount directly. They asked us to clarify the following.
Quote:
The Twins will NOT be in the 3rd film, and that the featured cars (from this post) are not actually in the movie.
Couple that with a recent post on MichaelBay.com by Michael Bay:
Quote:
After the internet posting of a nice review by someone who saw Transformers Dark of the Moon, the writer had not been clear on one thing. He misstated that the Twins are in the film. They are not.

So I am offering a $25,000 REWARD to anyone who can find them performing in Transformers 3, on July 1, when the movie opens.

Michael
Apparently, regardless of semantics, one thing is clear - The Twins, as we knew them, are not, or WILL not, be in Transformers Dark of the Moon.

Hey, at least we still have the toys, right?

Dark of the Moon Deluxe Wave 3 Released in Australia
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yes, you read that right folks - with the Dark of the Moon toyline not even officially released yet, Deluxe Wave 3 has been sighted and purchased at retail in Australia. This is significant because it's also our first confirmation of what is actually in the third wave:

Laserbeak
Mudflap
Nitro Bumblebee
Thundercracker

For comparison, here is what is in Wave 1:

Ratchet, Skids, Bumblebee, Crankcase, Roadbuster and Starscream

And Wave 2:

Topspin, Barricade, Jolt and Sideswipe

That's 14 different toys. There's no guarantee these will all be on US shelves right away on Monday - although sightings confirm Waves 1 and 2 are in stock rooms and going out on shelves. Australia is typically a little ahead on the releases, so chances are, these new four will be joining the rest before May is over.

This report comes to you from Ozformers, with photo proof from Griffin-of-oz. He also reports that the Stealth Force Mini Changer two packs - featuring a vehicle with flip out weapons and a PVC robot hero style figure - have been sighted at Australian Targets.

Dark of the Moon toy Guidebook New Optimus Prime Cyberverse Commander Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Given away at a special launch event for the Dark of the Moon toyline in Australia was a very cool Dark of the Moon guidebook. There are some great pictures of all the toys we have heard about to date in here including a few we'd not heard or seen much of - such as Cyberfire Bumblebee earlier today.

Ozformers - Transformers Collectors Australia admin Griffin-of-oz has shared scans of the entire guidebook! The guidebook is 32 pages long and includes some new looks at some other toys, in addition to Cyberfire Bumblebee. Included in that list is the new Cyberverse Optimus Prime shown at left, who has a more traditional Optimus Prime colorscheme and has different weapons - Energon swords and shoulder cannons. It's just called "Optimus Prime" in the guidebook, though this might be the "Energy Blade" Optimus Prime that was put about for Cyberverse a while back.

New looks at existing toys includes Deluxe Class Mudflap - our first look at official images of the guy and his wicked looking axe weapon. There's also a page dedicated to the Ark playset, complete with some nice views of Roller. Human Alliance Roadbuster also gets a page - these images we've seen before, though these are bigger and HA Roadbuster is such a nice toy it'd be a crime not to mention him!

Check out the full guidebook scans over at the Ozformers, and talk about it on our 2005 Boards!

Dark of the Moon Reviewed by Ain't It Cool News
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 03:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The advance screening impressions of Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon continue to roll in. Off the back of Neo-Bombshell's experience with 30 minutes of the film, Capone of Ain't It Cool News got to see a rough cut of the whole movie in Chicago. He's shared a detailed, but light on spoilers, review of the film. There are some good points in there including the final word on Skids and Mudflap - they are in the film, but they are toned down.

Other keypoints are:

- The battle of Chicago runs for an hour, with not a second wasted.
- Megatron is very creepy still with part of his head missing from the final battle of Revenge of the Fallen.
- Leonard Nimoy voices Sentinel Prime to "perfection".
- Rosie Huntington-Whiteley spends a lot of time in the tightest clothes imaginable. She does have a role in the film and is reckoned to be better than Megan Fox, perhaps because she has an active role to play.
- Sam's parents are barely in the film.
- Civilians die in large numbers during the Chicago battle.

The final word from Capone on Dark of the Moon? That this is in his own words, "the third and easily best entry in the Michael Bay-directed franchise".

Dark of the Moon Air Raid in hand Images
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Masabon has shared with us some in hand images of the confirmed Japan-only Dark of the Moon Air Raid. The back of the packaging lacks the Hasbro branding, which is a very strong indication that this Revenge of the Fallen Thrust remold with added MechTech points is a Japan exclusive release. He's a pretty sharp looking Autobot with three MechTech weapon points - one on the back of the jet which becomes his right arm in robot mode, and two beneath the wings. Masabon has also provided us with a copy of Air Raid's bio, complete with an unfortunate typo from Takara-Tomy:

Airlaid is one of the most skillful soldiers among Autobots. He prefers to fly into the middle of the enemy rather than shoot-out from a distance. His technique for firefighting breaks enemy lines and finds a way out for victory.

Additionally, Masabon confirms that the golden MechTech weapons promotion at Toys R Us Japan is limited to 10,000 pieces, and that each Toys R Us has 100 pieces in stock.

Read on to check out Masabon's images.

Stan Bush to Attend Botcon 2011
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 01:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Botcon's Twitter Account has updated with another Botcon 2011 guest announcement - Stan Bush! Stan is a frequent guest of Botcon, and it is always cool to hear "The Touch" performed live if you get a chance. It is especially appropriate for Stan to attend this year of course as it is 25 years since Transformers The Movie made Stan Bush's The Touch into a major part of Transformers lore.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Voyager Optimus Prime With Mechtech Trailer Pictorial Review
Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 01:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Alfes’ Blog has posted a gallery of Transformers: Dark of the Moon Voyager Optimus Prime with MechTech Trailer Japanese Release.

This set of images is the most comprehensive pictorial review for the figure we’ve seen up to this day.

The trailer can easily hold two Deluxe sized figures in vehicle mode or you can neatly store away a lot of MechTech weapons inside and/or attach them to the outside of the trailer. Unfortunately though, unlike the Ultimate Optimus Prime, the trailer does not transform into the Omega Combat Armor.

You can checkout the images here and here. The images are also mirrored on this news post.

Posted by News Fetcher on May 14 '11 at 12:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
From the day we foundout about this new figure; Cyberfire Bumblebee (a new Deluxe Class version, not the Legends Class version of the same name), many of you were wondering what this toy is. Sure we got to see Fireburst Optimus Prime (Voyager Class) but to this day Transformers: Dark of the Moon Deluxe Class Cyberfire Bumblebee was a mystery.

TFW2005 Boards Member len_d69 from Malaysia is sharing with is an image from the “Transformers: Dark of the Moon Toy Guide Book” distributed freely with a purchase of RM200 & above (limited to first 150 persons per store). And yep, it's their Street Date.

While we congratulate him for getting hold of the book, we thank him for sharing with us our first image of Cyberfire Bumblebee.



BUMBLEBEE has earned his position as one of the most respected AUTOBOTS®* by consistently besting DECEPTICON®* foes. He established a library of battle strategies within the Autobot supercomputer Teletraan-I so that AUTOBOTS will have access to his winning maneuvers for centuries to come!

Dark of the Moon Special Preview Event in Peru
Posted by News Fetcher on May 13 '11 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The hype machine for Transformers Dark of the Moon is kicking off! My friend 2005 Boards member Neo-Bombshell, along with other members of the Peruvian Transformers community and various people from Hasbro and the movie industry were treated to a special showing of 30 minutes worth of footage from Dark of the Moon. The footage naturally includes a decent amount of spoilers, so read on at your risk! Of note is just how dark the tone is - there's still some humor, but there are also scenes along the lines of showing human skulls, victims of Decepticon attack, and characters getting torn apart.

Check out Neo-Bombshell's writeup of the preview by reading on - once again, this contains heavy spoilers so stop reading here if you don't want to be spoiled on what lies in store with Dark of the Moon.

Botcon 2011 Hall of Fame Event Update - Dark of the Moon Preview Confirmed
Posted by News Fetcher on May 13 '11 at 12:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An update has gone out from Botcon about this year's Hall of Fame event. Two things are confirmed - first that alongside the four robots to be honored with addition to the Hall of Fame, two of the people behind the series will be added - who will it be? Speculation has long suggested Frank Welker, Flint Dille will be in attendance of course for a "special panel" - could he be being honored?

Additionally there's an extra treat in store - a preview of Transformers Dark of the Moon! The exact text, pasted below, mentions this will be a sneak peak - will it be a series of clips as in 2009, or a full on showing like 2007? I'd imagine the latter, but who knows - Hasbro and Fun Publications are always good to us.

The honorees include robots Ironhide, Ratchet, Soundwave and the highly anticipated 2011 Fan's Choice along with two well known, high profile human inductees!

As previously announced, all attendees will receive a goody bag with movie snacks and a 3D Cinemask which you'll need for a sneak peak of the new Transformers Dark of the Moon movie! Trust us - you do not want to miss this event! The goody bag will also include a movie poster along with some other great items from our partners!

2005 Boards member Cth has shared with us a nice selection of images from the two new Dark of the Moon children's books, The Lost Autobot and Optimus Prime's Friends and Foes. Friends and Foes in particular features more information on the new heretofore unseen new members of Optimus Prime's team, Wheeljack - the einstein looking robot, who outfits NEST with special gear to allow them to fight Transformers better and Mirage, the Ferrari Italia, who has his Electro-Disruptor.

Also from Cth are some spoilers from the junior novel, featuring what is destined to be an epic exchange between Optimus Prime and Sentinel Prime that I really hope is in the movie, and the explanation of where Mikaela went. Check them out here - BEWARE, SPOILERS!

The books also feature a decent selection of spoilers including a vague overview of the plot. Be warned, if you read on, you will be spoiled about the overall flow of the story in Dark of the Moon!
