iGear Acid Storm "Rainforest", Generation 2 Ramjet, Current More Images
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '11 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have updated their store with some more information on the unofficial Seekers we were reporting on earlier today.

According to the entry on the iGear store, the green unlicensed piece's name is Rainforest, reference PP03R. The clear purple one is Current, and Generation 2 Ramjet is also shown. All three are currently for sale as "limited prototypes".

As a bit of fun, take a look at his accessory list to see what he comes with - a human pilot figure named "Dr Evil". Unintentional Austin Powers reference ahoy! (We know it's probably just a copyright evading renaming of Transformers villain Dr Archevil though...)

Movie Trilogy Optimus Prime with Trailer in Package Images
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '11 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've got something cool now - our first look at the Transformers Movie Trilogy Optimus Prime with trailer in package, coming to you via this Ebay auction. This Optimus Prime, a redeco of the Deluxe class toy with the trailer from the Transformers Chronicle reissue released in Japan, is set to be sold at approximately the Voyager pricepoint.

From these images, we can also see what the Transformers Movie Trilogy packaging will look like. It's broadly a retooling of the Dark of the Moon packaging, in the same style as Revenge of the Fallen became NEST Global Alliance or the original Movie went to Allspark Powered. The main differences are that the line name is now merely "Transformers" and a callout on the box refers to it as the "Movie Trilogy Series".

The packaging for this piece is pretty eye-catching, with the dark background drawing attention to the toy itself. It's also packaged in vehicle mode, with the tractor trailer running the length of this long, narrow box, a nice callback - intentional or not - to the original Generation 1 Optimus Prime packaging.

Transformers Prime Japanese First Edition Packaging Images
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '11 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Japanese retailer Hobby Search have updated with some better in-package images of the Transformers Prime First Edition toys for Japan. Broadly speaking, the packaging is the same as the US releases - there's just a couple of stickers to add the Japanese text to the packaging. The main difference is that all the toys are packaged in robot mode, as opposed to their vehicle modes.

The toys themselves are also a bit different, you can check out our previous coverage of the US VS Japanese differences here.

Unofficial Skyfire on the way?
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '11 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Some images have been posted over at Toyspie (warning, link may be considered NSFW) of a new third party item: an unofficial take on Generation 1's Skyfire. We're talking about the guy from the original Generation 1 cartoon, the lawyer-friendly reworking of the toy Jetfire.

This new item is from a group apparently called Trash fish GROUP, a part of the Third Party League including Dr Wu and MGS. The design is very tall - potentially around the height of a taller Ultra Class piece. Design wise, to this newsie it seems a bit off, very blocky in vehicle mode and like it is missing a bit out of the torso in robot mode. But be sure to check out the images and judge for yourself.

iGear unveils more Unofficial Masterpiece Seekers Acid Storm, G2 Ramjet, Phasing Skywarp
Posted by News Fetcher on December 26 '11 at 06:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
In a recent post on their Facebook page, iGear have unveiled some more of their unofficial Masterpiece Seekers. Shown off here are:

- Acid Storm, a green and gray take on the default Starscream / Skywarp design looking worryingly like the initial Takara Masterpiece Starscream.
- Generation 2 Ramjet, a Comic Ink exclusive that we previously reported on here. Check out the earlier news story for full details of this one.
- At least one clear model (perhaps two, the tint in the images is different but it might be lighting). The clear one(s) are probably meant to be ghost / reformatting / teleporting (take your pick) versions of Skywarp and / or Thundercracker.

More information will be added as we get it.
