Michael Bay Talks About Transformers: Dark Of The Moon 3D
Posted by News Fetcher on March 27 '11 at 05:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
First of all, that is not the name, it’s not called Transformers: Dark of the Moon 3D (well, not yet anyway!).

Director Michal Bay spoke to USAToday regarding movies and 3D. It’s a hype some of us love while others tend to stay away.

"The short answer is we did too much with technology that wasn't ready for prime time," says director Michael Bay, whose Transformers: Dark of the Moon was shot digitally, in 3-D and on traditional 35mm film.

"Studios are turning everything they can into 3-D without considering whether it should be done at all," he says. "We're already wearing the experience out."

Hasbro Shareholder Toy Fair Gift RPMs Speed Stars Optimus Prime Pictorial Review
Posted by News Fetcher on March 27 '11 at 06:00 AM
By TM2 D-bot from TFW2005:
Board member influence82 has shared with us a pictorial review of Hasbro's shareholder gift for Toy Fair: RPMs Speed Stars Optimus Prime:

To reward stockholders at their annual shareholder meetings, Hasbro gave out RPMs Optimus Prime as a shareholder gift. Even though I am a Hasbro shareholder myself, I was not able to attend the meetings or even know if I qualify to begin with. It has a exclusive deco similar to the TakaraTomy Shareholder Gift as seen below with Choro Q trucks.

Transformers Issue 22 and 23 to be written by James Roberts
Posted by News Fetcher on March 26 '11 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Great news! Over on the IDW comics forums, IDW editor Andy Schmidt teased at some big events looming in the future of the Transformers comics that have begun with Transformers Infestation and will continue to build - including, he confirms, in two issues of the ongoing series written by James Roberts!

The series does lead into CHAOS, and so do James Robert's two issues of the ongoing series coming up (did I just say that? WHAT?).

yeah, just kidding. NOT.

James IS writing TRANSFORMERS #s 22 and 23.

Who says I don't listen?


You may remember James Roberts as part of the team with Nick Roche who brought us The Last Stand of the Wreckers, five issues of the very best Transformers action around. With James writing the ongoing and promises of something big about to pay off in the next few months, the future is bright for Transformers in print!

Rumor - A Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Trailer With Suckerpunch?
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '11 at 11:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Reports are coming in of a Transformers: Dark of the Moon trailer (previously unseen) being played before Zack Snyder’s Suckerpunch. Customizer frenzy_rumble informed us via News Tip that there is a reporting of a trailer running in certain theaters.

We are yet to confirm this information, till then treat it as a rumor only. Theaters may or may not play the trailer if we take previous situations (Announcement Trailer with Narnia) into account.

If TFW2005 Members are going out to see the movie released today, let us in on whether the new trailer is live or not.

Thanks and Have Fun!

Ken Jeong Talks Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '11 at 06:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Believe it or not Ken Jeong is a Doctor. Yep, it’s true. But he is famous for treating us with the best medicine in the world… “Laughter”. If you have enjoyed Hangover, then you know who this guy is. (Well actually you can’t take the image off your mind can you? It’s burned to your eyes).

Well, Ken Jeong is in the next Michael Bay Transformers Movie; Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Recently he spoke a little bit about his experience on the Transformers 3 set with CraveOnline.

CraveOnline: Do you get a cool role in Transformers 3?
Ken Jeong: Yeah, it’s a small role in Transformers but yeah. I had an out of body experience working on that one because I just couldn’t believe I was [there]. Still, that was not a thing where oh, I’m going to be a part of a blockbuster franchise like Transformers 3 or even now Hangover 2 for that matter. So I can’t believe I’m a part of these franchises in any way. It was amazing. Michael Bay is brilliant and it’ll blow your mind.

CraveOnline: I’ve been on Michael Bay sets including Transformers 1. He keeps things so riled up, I see how it can be misconstrued, but it’s high energy.
Ken Jeong: He doesn’t like things to wait and neither do I. You want to keep moving, you want to keep the pace, you want to keep the energy. That I respond to because Todd’s like that too. Because you want that comedic energy to stay fresh. Especially on movies when there’s huge budgets and huge effects, you worry about spontaneity being lost. Yeah, Michael Bay just kept everything going.

Dual Model Kit Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Prototype Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '11 at 03:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Amazon and E-Hobby have both updated their product pages for the upcoming Movie Universe Dual Model Kit Optimus Prime and Bumblebee with images showing off the resin hardcopy prototypes of the kits. Both are as expected supremely detailed and incredibly poseable with optional attachment parts (Optimus' swords are removeable and I assume Bumblebee's arm cannon will be interchangeable too - and check out Optimus' hands, he has articulated fingers!)

Check out the E-Hobby listings for Optimus here and Bumblebee here, and the Amazon Japan listing for Optimus here and Bumblebee here.

Figure King 158 Transformers Scans
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '11 at 02:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Masabon has shared with us some scans of the Transformers pages from this month's edition of Figure King! To no small surprise it is a Dark of the Moon (aka Darkside Moon in Japan) heavy issue, with Sentinel Prime, Optimus Prime (Voyager with Trailer) and Bumblebee getting full page spreads, plus call outs detailing the various Mech Tech features each toy comes with. There's also some small callouts of Ratchet and Ironhide's new toys.

Also covered in this issue is a page on the Dual Model Kit Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, showing artwork concepts of the skeletons underneath the toys which seem pretty true to the on-screen look of the Protoform Optimus Prime seen in the 2007 movie. Last but not least there is a page showing some comparisons between the Takara-Tomy Transformers United toys and their Generations / Reveal the Shield counterparts. This page also has some new images of the Kabaya Gaia Cross set.

United Frenzy and Rumble Images
Posted by News Fetcher on March 25 '11 at 02:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Alfes2000 has shared another gallery of a recently released Japanese Transformer - this time out it is the Decepticon demolitions team, Rumble and Frenzy. The twin Decepticons come in a two pack - as opposed to the single pack Scout Class releases planned for the US - and now turn into tanks rather than cassettes. They still feature their piledrivers, though, and have plenty of clip system weapon rails for even more firepower. Check out the full gallery by clicking on the link above, and join in the discussion on our 2005 Boards by clicking the discuss button.

And yes, red Rumble fans, Takara-Tomy's release does indeed make Rumble the red one.

Botcon 2011 Box Art Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '11 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
This week's Botcon 2011 reveal is... the box artwork! Just posted on Botcon.com is a mock up of the box for this year's Animated Stunticons set. It's a cool and unique style that evokes more than a slight memory of Speed Racer with its checkered background, topped off with a nice big Decepticon symbol and mugshots of all five Stunticons around the outside. One important thing to note - Motormaster here is referred to as "The Motormaster", in line with his role as the ringleader of this Stunt Troop.

Check out the box set art at Botcon.com! If you like it and want to get it, there's only Primus packages remaining for this year's Botcon and they're heading toward a complete sell out FAST, so act now to avoid disappointment on what is sure to become one of the hottest Botcon sets since the 2006 Beast Wars or 2007 Seekers sets. Head over and pre-register your Primus package today!

Masterpiece Convoy Last Shot Edition Released, Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '11 at 02:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An era is ending. Masterpiece Convoy, also known as 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime, which back in 2003 we held a poll here to help Hasbro determine various details that you, the fans, wanted to see included in the toy, is being retired. The final use of the mold, Masterpiece Convoy Last Shot Edition, has been released in Japan, and Alfes2000 has shared a gallery with the fandom at large. There are very few differences to earlier releases of the mold - the only changes documented so far are a sticker on the front of the box, the sound stage which is thought to give the identity of the next Masterpiece, and a remolded panel on the back which reads last shot (as documented here).

Transformers: Exiles Official Product Description Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on March 24 '11 at 10:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Alex Irvine’s Transformers: Exiles official product description is now available at Amazon.

Product Description
The epic battles between Optimus Prime and Megatron have long thrilled Transformers fans. But these two giants weren’t always great leaders and bitter foes. This new novel continues the electrifying saga that started with Transformers: Exodus, unveiling the origins of the conflict—the explosive events that unfolded before Optimus and Megatron arrived Earthside, forever altering the destiny of their kind.

Once allies, Optimus and Megatron are now enemies in a civil war. To prevent Cybertron from falling into Megatron’s hands, Optimus jettisons the planet’s heart, the AllSpark, into space, then sets out to find it with Megatron hot on his heels. Optimus is determined to defeat Megatron, bring the AllSpark home, and restore Cybertron to its former glory.

But a saboteur lurks aboard Optimus’s spaceship, and ahead lie lost colonies, some of them hostile. Optimus needs help of the highest caliber, but from whom? Heroes such as Solus, Nexus, and Vector Prime are just names from make-believe stories of long ago. Or are they? Maybe it’s time for Optimus Prime to find out. Maybe it’s the only chance he has to vanquish mighty Megatron.
