TFW Reveal the Shield Lugnut Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on October 09 '11 at 10:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
For our next Transformers Toy Galleries update, we bring you Reveal the Shield Lugnut. Lugnut was one of the four Voyagers in this Classics subline, and another of Derrick J Wyatt's Transformers Animated creations who have been adopted into the mainstream. Reveal the Shield Lugnut brings a lot to the table - he's a very imposing, massive looking Decepticon, with loads of 3mm clip weapon points, and spring loaded punches. All in all, he's a fun toy and it's a pity he saw such limited distribution.

Click on the link below to check out the gallery:

Reveal the Shield Lugnut Gallery

Lugnut was also released as a part of Transformers United. United Lugnut sported a very different deco to his Reveal the Shield counterpart. Check out our gallery of United Lugnut here by way of comparison:

What is the most important for you when you work on Transformers toy designs or development?

Favorite "Dark of The Moon" item you developed?

Favorite items you developed in the past series?

What kind of Transformers do you hope to develop in the future?

TFW United Laser Optimus Prime Gallery
Posted by News Fetcher on October 08 '11 at 08:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
It's time for another TFW Gallery update! After last week's blitz of movie galleries, I thought I'd highlight something for the non-Movie fans, and SydneyY shot the perfect thing. Here for your enjoyment is a gallery of Transformers United Laser Optimus Prime, the Japanese release of Reveal the Shield Generation 2 Optimus Prime. United Laser Optimus Prime makes a few changes to the deco, going for straight-up red and black in truck mode, and the clear plastic is changed up from orange to blue, giving Optimus blue eyes and windows - and a nice blue sword to boot.

Check out SydneyY's gallery of the toy we all want redecoed in black and teal and named Scourge (with a Takara-Tomy release named Black Convoy for the fans of the Car Robots incarnation) by clicking on the link below:

Energizer Batteries "Transformers Racer" Promotion
Posted by News Fetcher on October 07 '11 at 11:30 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
TFW user Jlogano20 has found a bit of unexpected and nondescript Transformers tie-in merchandise today at a K-Mart in New York. Called "Transformers Racer(s)", packed in with eight packs of Energizer AA Batteries you can also get either a nondescript Autobot car or a nondescript Decepticon car free with purchase. These nondescript cars are non-transforming and are very nondescript in appearance. For anyone picking up batteries, they are still a nice little freebie toy to mess around with.

In other news, my "Word-A-Day" calendar is finally paying off.

CM's Corp Minerva Guttu Kurru Figure Prototype Images
Posted by News Fetcher on October 07 '11 at 03:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
CM's Corp have updated their homepage with some new information and prototype images of their Guttu Kurru series Minerva. Minerva was one of three teens to join the Autobots in the Masterforce series as Headmaster Juniors. Minerva is known for her great compassion and being the level headed one out of the trio of herself, Cab and Shuta. This licensed figure from CMs represents Minerva in her exosuit, and comes with three different facial expressions plus her helmet (the final version presumably will have a clear visor over the eyes).

Click on the link above to check out the images of this fully licensed figure from CMs. According to the page, the figure will stand 185mm tall and be released sometime in 2012. Also in the Guttu Kurru series from Masterforce will be a figure of Ginrai - we eagerly anticipate our first look at him!

The NJCC warehouse has just received the Tempting Toys shipment of MP-10 Masterpiece Convoys! Those who were looking to pick one of these up can avoid shipping charges, and pick one up this weekend at NJCC 80′s TOYPOCALYPSE 2011


MP-10 Masterpiece Convoy

This brand new version of MP-10 Masterpiece Convoy – Optimus Prime is sculpted to more closely resemble the animated version of this G1 Classic, and also includes his Transforming trailer with repair bay, Roller, and for the very first time a Spike figure . Weapons include, orange Energy Ax, the Autobot Matrix of Leadship and Blaster Rifle that can fold in half and store in his back. This version of Prime is more in-scale with the Rodimus and Grimlock Masterpiece figures and will be available at the NJCC Tempting Toys booth!

DOTM Now The Fourth Highest-Grossing Movie of All Time*
Posted by News Fetcher on October 06 '11 at 12:45 PM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Thanks to (as usual) Box Office Mojo, we now know that Dark of the Moon has passed up yet another milestone, beating out the final Lord of the Rings movie and has become the Fourth Highest-Grossing Movie of All-Time* with a total of $1,119,112,943.

As the run of the movie begins to reach it's end worldwide as the home release spreads through the various regions and territories, this is probably the highest the movie's theatrical totals will hit. Regardless of how one may feel about the movies, one cannot deny that DOTM has made the history books.
