Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Bumblebee-Camaro Cake
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '11 at 05:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
This sure takes the cake!

According to Entertainment Weekly...
"Today, ‘Cake Boss’ Buddy Valastro presented a seriously detailed creation for Chevrolet at the New York International Auto Show. That’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon star Bumblebee straddling a Chevy Camaro. We’ll find out how Buddy pulled it off — not to mention transported it — on the June 20 episode of TLC’s Cake Boss. That’s some nice integrated marketing for the Michael Bay film, which opens July 1."

Like I said before...Just when you think you’ve seen everything… Something like this comes along. Bumblebee straddling a Chevy Camaro?

New images and information of Transformers: Dark of the Moon Ultimate Optimus Prime has surfaced online.

Description
Lead the Autobots to final victory with the Transformers Dark of the Moon Ultimate Optimus Prime action figure.

The leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime is ready to battle the Decepticons for the last time with this transforming action figure. Take to the roads in Trailer Mode, with Optimus Prime in his disguise as a Peterbilt 379 lorry truck and trailer. When danger strikes the Autobots, Optimus can detach from the trailer and transform into Robot Mode, to take on the situation head-on. And if the threat becomes greater still, the trailer transforms and combines with Optimus Prime to engage Power-Up Mode, equipping him with extra armour and a set of wings.

Hidden inside the trailer is a blaster weapon, which Optimus can fire in Power-Up Mode, and features lights and sound effects.

The Ultimate Optimus Prime figure requires 2 AA batteries, which are included. Transformers fans aged 5 and up will have great fun battling the Decepticons with this awesome action figure.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Official Takara-Tomy Japanese Figures
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '11 at 08:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
TFW2005 Boards Member Sidecutter is sharing with us the images he received for Transformers: Dark of the Moon Japanese (Takara-Tomy) figures.

According to Sidecutter, most of the images are replaced with placeholder images thus making it hard for us to get our first look at Voyager Class Sentinel Prime and Cyberverse figures #18 to #23.

But, these new images prove that Takara-Tomy Ultimate Ironhide is indeed same as the Hasbro Leader Class Ironhide as speculated by our members when the info first showed-up.

There is a better look at the upcoming Jetwing Optimus Prime as well (the regular version, not the black exclusive version).

By Tony_Bacala from TFW2005:
Reports are coming in about the next Masterpiece figure from Japan.

According to Joel from BigBadToyStore.com, who called it "MP-10"
Quote:
We’ve just received word from Japan that the Transformers MP-10 will be released in September, the retail price in Japan is 22,000 yen, we have preorders listed at $249.99

The name has currently not yet been released, but we were told it is a ‘New’ figure and the name will be revealed soon.

Here is a link to the preorder: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...55&mode=retail

Sidecutter of the 2005 Boards also received this info:

Quote:
We have received from Takara the information about the next Transformers Master Piece. They called it in Japanese New but the offer specify that the name maybe change in the future.

There are 2 pcs per case. Retail of YEN22,000 in japan. Delivery in September 2011.

So, something big is coming down the pipe in the Masterpiece world this September. Let the speculation begin!

New Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Video Game Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '11 at 07:15 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
eGamer has posted some new Transformers: Dark of the Moon Prequel Video Game images for us to enjoy.

These images feature a good look at the video game version of Movie Soundwave.

“Soon into my first hands-on experience was I thrown into combat situations with Sideswipe and the great Optimus Prime as my backup. The map layouts are very similar to what most of you will be familiar with in regular First-Person-Shooter games with lots of tight spaces, blind corners and open courtyards with minimal cover. Multiple bogeys were spawned in continuously from all sides, and the battles, I must say, were very well balanced and would prove a good challenge for even the best sharpshooters. The Decepticon enemies are were recognisable by their models and colour schemes as to avoid confusion with your teammates. Furthermore, they were pretty good as far as single-player AI goes.”

Shout Factory Also Working On Masterforce and Victory DVD Sets
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '11 at 06:15 AM
By Deefuzz from TFW2005:
There has been much buzz over this year's announcement of Shout Factory's upcoming release of the Japanese Transformers Headmasters series. One thing fans have been hoping for is that this would mean subsequent releases of Masterforce and Victory, and thanks to a post by Shout's own Brian Ward on the Shout Factory forums, we now have more light shed on that topic.

I can say that you should expect follow-ups of at least Super-God Masterforce and Victory. I can't really make any promises, regarding Scramble City or Zone at this time. That being said, Headmasters will certainly be used as a rough gauge of the series' popularity. After all, it is the only one of the three that is a direct continuation from S3, so we wouldn't necessarily expect the same response to the subsequent series.

Followed later by (in response to if there would be a release set of all three series):

Unfortunately, I can't reveal the release strategy, until that information is cleared by PR and Hasbro. But I will say that I'm currently working on all three sets, in hopes that the sales of Headmasters will prove the others are worthy releases.

So what does this all mean? The sales of Headmasters will be used as a gauge to see whether other releases will be possible. While it sounds like we can somewhat count on seeing Masterforce and Victory, if fans want to see a release of Scramble City or Zone then it is up to them to support Shout and these upcoming releases. Who knows what could follow after that? Beast Wars II? Beast Wars Neo? R.I.D.?

Dark of the Moon Dog Tags
Posted by News Fetcher on April 21 '11 at 04:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Here is a new oddity for those of you who like the non-toy Transformers merchandise - Transformers Dark of the Moon Dog Tags. Just like the ones released for Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon's release will be accompanied by dog tags. Each pack also contains temporary tattoos and decals. They are blind packed, though, so no guarantee you'll get tags of your favourite character. Click on the link above to see the listing on Big Bad Toy Store.

Skewed 'n Reviewed asked Steve regarding his work with Transformers: Prime…

"...Starscream has always been one of my favorite characters – especially as played in recent years by the great Charlie Adler and also the great Tom Kenny! In fact, after hearing Charlie’s recent performances in the films, I felt I had to get his blessing before I could even accept the role! By the way, what a gentleman – love that guy! Tom’s a hell of an act to follow too – jeez! It’s very hard for me to take over a character that has been so masterfully portrayed – especially when my friends are the previous portrayers! I didn’t try to consciously copy anything that had been done before me, I simply did what came naturally and apparently (thankfully) they liked it!"

Steve Blum also mentioned an upcoming Transformers Video Game. Whether this is the Transformers: Dark of the Moon Prequel Game, the MMO Game based on Transformers: Prime Universe or something else is unsure at the moment.

"...If you’re speaking of the newest Transformers game – WAY too early to talk about it, methinks. Lasers trained on my temples. In the past, I’ve played a lot of bots – good and bad, including Barricade and Breakdown. Vocally stressful, but any time I get to live in the Transformers universe, I’m grateful."

Thanks to Yahoo Movies - we have some new stills from Transformers Dark of the Moon. Seen is a nice new shot of Bumblebee in billboard format, similar to the one we just saw of Optimus Prime last week. Along with that, we have shots of Shia and Rosie, plus Michael Bay directing. Check them out after the break!
