iGear Lightning - KO Masterpiece Thundercracker in Animation Colors
Posted by News Fetcher on September 09 '11 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have revealed the latest of their Seekers. Having recently released their Sunstorm MP Seeker along with the coneheads, iGear have apparently now turned their attention to the three that have already been officially released by Takara, starting with Thundercracker. Lightning, as iGear are calling him, is an animation colors version of Thundercracker VS the realism of the officially released Masterpiece version, and also features the alternate leg configuration.

However as this piece is so directly infringing upon Hasbro and Takara's IP, moreso than any of the other pieces released to date, we would urge anyone looking for a Masterpiece Thundercracker to see out the real thing from Takara themselves.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Sentinel Prime And Megatron Tombstones
Posted by News Fetcher on September 09 '11 at 12:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
I’m sure all of you remember Jimmy. He was one of the TFW2005 members who were on-site in Chicago bringing us photos as Transformers: Dark of the Moon filming happened. Here he is bringing us something very intersting which he found on Flickr..

Apparently someone has decided to erect tombstones in memory of Sentinel Prime and Megatron who died at the hands of Optimus Prime (on the Lasalle Street Bridge).

You can take a look at spudart's photostream on Flickr and appreciate his hard work and dedication to the Transformers Franchise.

TFC Toys Structor Leg Mode
Posted by News Fetcher on September 08 '11 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
TFC Toys via the weibo account of Jeffry Zhong (requires registration) have given us a leg up on the progress of their Hercules custom project with this new image of Structor in leg mode. This very rough looking prototype gives a nice clear view of what the leg mode looks like, including our clearest indication yet of how the whole thing fits together. Notice the pivot in the middle for lateral ankle movement, and the new design for how the robot arms apparently tuck in.

TODAY is the 10th Anniversary of Robots In Disguise!
Posted by News Fetcher on September 08 '11 at 09:45 AM
By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
September 8th, 2001 - This was the American debut of Robots in Disguise - the US dub of Japan's Car Robots series from the year before. And today marks 10 YEARS since that happened, to the day.

This series has been ignored, forgotten, and tossed to the side by the powers that be, but there are still fans of it, both the show and toys, out there. It was the transition between the Beast Era and the new Millennium, encompassing many things we take for granted today. Autobots and Decepticons for starters. Realistic vehicle modes. Repaints of old molds into new characters. The "reboot" of continuity, while keeping core elements. G1 redecos of toys with similar style. All while keeping the Beasts in play for a bit longer, to transition those late 90s kids to the return of the Autobots.

There is a nice discussion of the series as a whole going on in relation to the 10 year anniversary here: R.I.D. 10th Anniversary - 2001-2011, feel free to join in and share your thoughts. TFW will be doing some more RID celebrating before the year is out, so stay tuned!

Oh, and one more thing....

Botcon 2012 Mockups Done - Hints at the set
Posted by News Fetcher on September 07 '11 at 11:16 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The official Botcon Twitter has been busy, sending out tweat after tweat on the 2012 set. The short version is that the mockups for the set are done and looking very good in the opinion of Fun Publications, that three of the toys in the set are seeing their first updates ever, and that for two, they have drawn on the "distant" past.

Plenty of material here to speculate on! What does it all mean? Two things we can tell you is that it's not Transformers Animated themed, and it's not Trailbreaker, Gears or Brawn - FunPub feels they are more deserving of the Hasbro Classics treatment, but that what they have in store is equally awesome!

Last but by no means least, I'm sure a few of you are asking "well great, but where and when is Botcon 2012 being held?" Gogdog and Seth Buzzard asked the question and got the following reply:

Oh, no, as SOON as we get everything finalized with the PTB and locked up we will announce.

NOBODY wants the locale and date announced more than us. We are working on it every day... LOTS of factors involved.


Read on to view the original text of all the tweats involved!

Dark of the Moon South Korea Packaging Variation
Posted by News Fetcher on September 06 '11 at 10:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is something we thought was cool - in South Korea, there are some packaging variants on Deluxe Transformers - they are packaged in robot mode! Could this variant packaging be setting a trend for the rest of the world like robot mode packaging for Voyagers, where Asian markets first debutted robot mode packaging as early as Transformers Animated before it really caught on with the latter waves of Revenge of the Fallen and Hunt for the Decepticons Voyagers. Could history be about to repeat itself?

Also revealed here by bny888 is a special value two pack of Optimus Prime and Megatron Voyagers including a bonus mug - it's the same packaging of the individual Voyagers, but they are mounted in a cardboard sleeve. It looks rather cool, with the logo and faction symbols on the front of the outer sleeve.

Last but not least are some Transformers themed "Phlat Balls", balls that "transform" into frisbees by flattening them and revert to their original form when thrown. These Transformers edition ones come in yellow and black for Bumblebee and red and blue for Optimus.
