Transformers GT Optimus Prime Prototype
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '12 at 09:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
By way of the Twitter account of Bluesmobile325 we have our first look at the prototype for the Transformers GT Optimus Prime. GT Prime is a heavy remold of the Alternity Convoy design with pretty much the entire car bodywork redone to resemble the Nissan Super GT. He's also got a new head, and an extra blaster weapon. Check out our mirror of the image by clicking on the thumbnail at left.

For those interested, the website for Transformers GT is also live now.

Upcoming Transformers United and Arms Micron Releases - United Hardhead and Reflector
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '12 at 09:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Meister79, posting over at the Allspark, has shared an interesting bit of news with the fandom. He's posted a Takara-Tomy solicitation which includes a whole bunch of new toy names which we have not previously heard about. Toys on the list include:

United Reflecter (sic) - This one is priced at the Deluxe pricepoint, so it is potentially a release of the Reveal the Shield Perceptor redeco with the alternate head mentioned at Botcon 2010.
United Hard Head - again a Deluxe priced release, this might well be a release of the Deluxe Warpath with the alternate, Hardhead inspired tooling.
United Shock Wave - priced the same as the Takara-Tomy Generations Optimus Prime and Jazz, so potentially a release of the Fall of Cybertron toy with a shiny paint job like the Takara-Tomy Generations are sporting.
United Gremrock (sic) - again, priced at the Deluxe pricepoint like Shockwave.
United Starscream
United Swindle

There are also two new Transformers Prime Arms Micron entries on the list:

AM36 MMOG Thundertron - this sounds like an Arms Micron series release for Thundertron. What is of interest is that first bit - MMOG - which might possibly stand for "Massive Multiplayer Online Game", i.e. suggesting that Thundertron is going to make an appearance in one of the online Transformers games currently in development. Potentially Transformers Universe since we already know the Star Seekers are represented in that game.
AM37 Preview Optimus Prime Re-do - This is at the Arms Micron Deluxe pricepoint so it is potentially second release for Japan of the First Edition Optimus Prime Deluxe class toy, although your guess is as good as ours what the "re-do" means.

The list itself includes a healthy mix of Takra-Tomy Japanese market items and also confirmed Asia exclusives, so time will tell if any of those United toys will be released in Japan or will be more Asia exclusives.

Prime Arms Micron Darkest Megatron Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '12 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
More news from TFSource! They have also posted an update on the Japanese Transformers Prime Arms Micron toy Darkest Megatron. The new picture they have posted from a solicit indicates that the core Megatron figure will be another reuse of the Voyager class Megatron from the mainline Prime toys. The solicit also shows that Megatron will come with three Arms Microns, (we assume) redecos of AMW-01 through 03 who combine to form the huge Dark Matter Calibre Sword.

Right now what is shown are placeholders for each toy in the set using previously released toys. What this tells us though is which Megatron toy is being repurposed by Takara-Tomy for their Darkest Megatron and which Arms Microns he comes with.

Toyworld Unofficial Throttlebots Combiner
Posted by News Fetcher on November 02 '12 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our sponsors TFSource have dropped a bit of bombshell on Facebook with regard to the Toyworld Throttlebots, the first of which, Grind Rod, has just recently been released.

We have received confirmation from Toy World that once all the TW-T0 Figures are released, the final figure will contain all the parts to make them combine!

What will the final six Throttlebot gestalt look like? Are we going to see something like Puzzler from Go-Bots? Time will tell - but that's not going to stop us Transformers fans from speculating and looking for limb modes in each of the TW-T0 series releases as they come out!

Big Bad Toy Store has posted a picture of the Dark Energon Series Knock Out in package on their Facebook page. Dark Energon Knock Out has lost the paint apps on his weapon between the original promotional pictures and the final release version - hopefully that is the only paint app to disappear. Dark Energon Knock Out is looking particularly Generation 2-inspired with his translucent bright green plastic. Click on the thumbnail at left to check out the image.

You can buy Knock Out - along with the other three exclusive Deluxes in the set - through Big Bad Toy Store.
