By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With Transformers Prime set to premiere on the 26 November, what better way to see in the new show than a marathon of the show that started it all?

According to 2005 Boards member Thundershot, the marathon will include the classic Generation 1 multi-part stories More than Meets the Eye, The Ultimate Doom and Dinobot Island. Be sure to set your DVRs, and while you're setting them, don't forget about Transformers Prime, this Friday the 26th at 4pm, with a special behind the scenes sneak peek at 3:30 pm (1 pm and 12:30 pm Pacific, respectively).

New Unofficial Ironhide and Ratchet Head and Arm custom add-ons
Posted by News Fetcher on November 23 '10 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
There's a new unofficial third party on the product by a new group. This new group, Gear4Toys, is kicking off with an upgrade kit for Generation 1 Ironhide and Ratchet. But what these sets also add are new shoulders and arms, for a better proportioned upper body, LED eyes and chrome finished guns.

Unfortunately though full assembled look leaves the lower bodies looking rather small and puny. Maybe Hasbro will make some new versions of these characters, possibly with Takara-Tomy making versions with different paint apps and added chrome.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A little bird tells me that the next wave of Power Core Combiners five packs have been released at US Retail. The Power Core Combiners Grimstone with Dinobots and Steamhammer with Constructicons have been sighted at a Walmart in Colorado! They are in stores, but not ringing in at the registers so most stores are pulling them to the back. Mad props to our tipster Ed and the ever-loving Kickback for the heads up!

Transformers: Sector 7 Issues 1 To 5 Covers Poster
Posted by News Fetcher on November 22 '10 at 03:45 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
One of the best things about the ongoing Transformers: Sector 7 is the Art. Transformers Comic Book Artist Joe Suitor is doing a magnificent job, to add uniqueness to the 5-Part Series acting as a Prequel to Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.

Today, Mr. Suitor updated his blog to reveal an artwork from IDW Publishing’s Transformers: Sector 7. This piece of art is the “Covers Poster” of all 5 issues. In other words, do this… Place all “Cover B”s (Alternate Covers) side-by-side once you get them by the end of January 2011, and you’ll get a one whole piece of artwork. This artwork is depicting, a Desk full of various documents from a child’s drawing (Joseph Simmon’s Daughter drew that in Issue #2. “Daddy and Megaman”.) to Classified Transformers (NBE) Sightings.

PCC Spastic with Stunticons Will Have New Name
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '10 at 06:15 PM
By Fosterlager from TFW2005:
In an update to our previous coverage about the use of the name "Spastic" on the leader of the upcoming Stunticons Power Core Combiners set, the outcry from some in the U.K. regarding the word's use as a slur has resulted in a name change, even though the set was not scheduled for release in the U.K. This was posted on facebook by Hasbro PCC lead designer Eric Siebenaler to TFW2005 member Draven earlier today.

Takara-Tomy Animated Blazing Lockdown and Electrostatic Soundwave Galleries
Posted by News Fetcher on November 21 '10 at 02:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Higekuma Toy Toy Blog has updated with galleries of the two final mass retail releases in Takara-Tomy's Transformers Animated line. The line goes out with a bang, with Blazing Lockdown and Soundwave Electrostatic Version. There's some nice comparison shots in there - Electrostatic Soundwave adds some extra tribal tattoos, and also gives Ratbat more paint on his keyboard, a shiny silver head, and gold paint apps in the place of the US release's red. Blazing Lockdown goes for all-gold flames which seems like a double edged sword, more reflective, but less color contrast, so decide for yourself if you feel that is an improvement.

Posted by News Fetcher on November 20 '10 at 06:00 PM
By Kickback from TFW2005:
Hasbro has scrapped any plans to release the upcoming Powercore Combiner Spastic with Stunticons set in the United Kingdom and Europe due to outcry from the United Kingdom. The word "spastic" is seen as offensive in the United Kingdom, while the word itself in the United States is seen more as a slang term for someone who is hyperactive or clumsy due to hyperactivity.
