Transformers Generations 2011 Book Released, Unite for the Universe Comic Included
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Generations 2011 Volume 1 has been released in Japan! The new book includes a whole host of Japanese Transformers Toyline articles, including:

Dark of the Moon Wave 1 Preview
Revenge of the Fallen Retrospective
Transformers United Introduction
Animated Decepticon Illustration Gallery

As well as a pair of interviews, one with Mr Yoke and Mr Ono regarding the Transformers Hall of Fame, and one regarding Transformers United & Generations.

There's also some very cool ancilliary material. As posted by Guido Guidi on his Deviant Art Account yesterday, the book contains the complete Simon Furman / Guido Guidi Transformers Unite for the Universe story. The first four chapters were released with the Movie Masterpiece series - the fifth and final, concluding chapter is also included in this book to wrap up the story. This article is accompanied by a look at the canceled Unite for the Universe Optimus Prime - a Movie Voyager Optimus Prime with add-on Jetfire armor for his power up mode.

Last but not least is the image you can see to the left of this story, showing a Transformers Animated face-off - Optimus Prime VS Motormaster, and Sari VS Shattered Glass Sari, as designed by Derrick J Wyatt himself! Shattered Glass Sari might possibly be a look at the unmade Transformers Animated Season 4, which would have included a Shattered Glass episode - would this Sari have been a part of it? Maybe not, but it's still cool to see this "what if Sari was evil?" concept.

Challenge of the GoBots Coming to DVD
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '11 at 11:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Time for something a bit different. The Warner Archives have been releasing the classic Hanna-Barbera shows we all grew up with in the 80s, and amongst them, the Challenge of the GoBots! It's being released as a "manufacture on demand" according to TVShowsonDVD, and sold direct through the WBShop website. It's currently being set for a May release. No word on if it is the whole show or just a single season boxed set, but for those of us who remember the great 80s rival to Transformers in the early days, here's a chance to relive some of those good old Saturday morning memories.

iGear Toys Nightbird Unofficial Custom Figure
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '11 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have updated their Facebook page with a teaser image of one of their upcoming partner products. This one is the MGT-6 Night-Bird, based on the robo-ninja Nightbird from the Generation 1 episode "Enter the Nightbird". iGear's Night-Bird is a non-transforming piece with what appears to be a decent level of articulation, and very small accessories in the form of sais, shurikans and a chain. Her chest is also removable - not like that! - to expose the mechanics inside. Overall, this appears to be a very well done and show-acurate version of Nightbird.

What might be also of interest is the reference number. MGT was also used for the Arcee "Delicate Warrior". So who are MGT-2 through 5? One might be the Firestar we saw once before, but who are the other three? Evidently there's something in store - or a deliberate decision to skip a few numbers to create a demand!

Transformers Collectors Club Cheetor and Generation 2 Ramjet New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '11 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Transformers Collectors Club has released a pair of new images. The first is a new look at Generation 2 Ramjet in jet mode. The new image (down at the time of writing?) gives a better look at what the jet mode will look like but don't judge it too quickly - the Collector's Club tweeted the following:

Yeah, the lighting is a little dull on the alt pic. We rushed to get that up. Def sharper than that...

The second is an amended robot mode image of Transtech Cheetor. Do you see the improvement to the face? Cheetor's lost the black paint around his eyes, giving him an altogether more pleasing look.

Preorders for both are expected to go up at some point in the coming days.

Dark of the Moon Space Case and Store Exclusives
Posted by News Fetcher on April 27 '11 at 04:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Friend and sponsor of TFW2005 Red leader of Kapow Toys has shared with us listings for the upcoming cases of Dark of the Moon Walmart and Target store exclusives. These listings bring us one extremely pleasing new toy in the shape of a Hunt for the Decepticons Terradive remold named Space Case! The mysterious semi-clear Bumblebee and Arcee with Cybertronian symbols are also a part of this Target Exclusive assortment along with a similar styled redeco of Jazz. Other revelations include the companion to the Target Exclusive Voyager Starscream - a Voyager Ratchet, described as a Revenge of the Fallen recolor (so that's where the 2007 Movie Voyager recolor got to...)

A big revelation though is that the Deluxe Class Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime will be a Wal Mart Exclusive. He'll be shipped in solid cases of 8, so he'll be plentiful at stores, but this is the first time a new mold has been store exclusive and not been part of a previous assortment of figures that was cancelled.

Check out the full listings below. We also have some low resolution images of all the new exclusives, liberated from the Excel spreadsheet by 2005 Boards member Locustreign!

Target Exclusive Deluxe Case - 2 of each - July 17th
1) Jazz with Cybertronian Tattoos ( black redeco )
2) Arcee with Cybertronian Tattoos
3) Bumblebee with Cybertronian Tattoos
4) Space Case ( Terradive with new Headsculpt)

Dark of the Moon Leaders Released Early at US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on April 26 '11 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We've received reports that the Dark of the Moon Leader Class has leaked out ahead of the May 15 street date. 2005 Boards member unmc2001 picked up Sentinel Prime at a Target store in Sun Prairie WI near Madison Wisconsin. We've also had reports of a confirmed purchase of both Sentinel Prime and Leader Class Bumblebee in Illinois - with picture proof from Deceptigtar! This purchase was also made from a Target, in Chicago this time.

As these are ahead of their street date they might be sitting in many store's back rooms waiting for release - and if you see them there's no guarantee you'll be able to buy them! But if you do share the happy news in our Transformers Sightings forum.

Transformers: Chaos - Andy Schmidt Interview
Posted by News Fetcher on April 26 '11 at 09:30 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Comic Book Resources got a chance to interview IDW Lead Editor Andy Schmidt and get an exclusive look at the upcoming IDW series Transformers: Chaos (actually it’s more of a continuation + tie-in kind of a story).

"Chaos" will represent the convergence of the ongoing series with the more galactic events of "Infestation" and "Heart of Darkness" -- both written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning -- but readers who have only been following the core book will not have to play catch-up. "The ongoing series has been taking place for the most part on Earth, while Dan and Andy's two series are really going on in outer space. With 'Transformers' #20 and 'Heart of Darkness' #4, we've got one scene that overlaps both books, as they come out in the same month. So readers who have followed one series but not the other are perfectly fine going into the 'Chaos' event. And all is made clear. From that point, everything 'Transformers' is in the bi-weekly ongoing series from July all the way through December -- I told you big stuff is happening!"

Transformers #81 - The Battle Continues

I’m sure almost all of you supported (and continue supporting) for the Petition to continue the Original Transformers Comic Book Series with Transformers Issue #81.

Newsarama published an article thanking the fans who are hard at work trying to bring back the series.

“The closest thing to a public acknowledgement on the petition thus far from IDW was publisher and editor-in-chief Chris Ryall tweeting last week, “If you can get the petition to 10,000 signatures/pre-orders, I'll give you an exclusive cover for issue 81 ...” in response to a Twitter account associated with the fan movement. Sale figure-indexing site The Comics Chronicles reports that in January 2011, IDW’s Transformers #15 sold an estimated 10,159 copies.”

“I think there’s lots of great stuff in G2, and I certainly don’t want to disregard it completely (I think there’s material there that could easily fold into whatever we might do with a G1 continuation), but given a straight choice, I’d opt for G1 #81 over G2 #13, just because that original run had a defining, epochal quality to it that just inspires me to see if it can be pushed to another level,” [Simon] Furman wrote.
