Transformers Prime Starscream and Wheeljack Concepts by Jose Lopez
Posted by News Fetcher on July 19 '11 at 03:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Transformers Prime concept artist Jose Lopez has shared some rare behind the scenes material of a pair of Transformers Prime characters - Wheeljack and Starscream. These concepts show the characters at an earlier stage of their design. Key elements to note from these designs is that Starscream has a lot more bulk to his build on this design compared to his lean finalised design. Wheeljack equally has a bit more mass to him - he's distinctly less sleek than the Drift inspired version in the show.

Check out the original pages on Jose's Deviant Art Account:

In the world of Transformers, we're gearing up for the San Diego Comic Con 2011. It all kicks off on Wednesday and you can follow the TFW crew's coverage right here on TFW2005! Accept no imitations - there's only one TFW convention coverage experience!

Meanwhile the last week brought us new looks at upcoming Transformers toys to whet your appetite for what could be on show at SDCC 2011, plus news of what is to come at both TFCon 2011 and Auto Assembly 2011 - the second stage of the 2011 convention season is kicking off in a big way! But it's not all about what is to come, with a quick look back at Botcon 2011 with a celebration of the success of 2005's own Dark-Sakura in the Botcon 2011 art contest (that's 2005 veteran Shin Gouki's daughter guys!) as well as the PDF version of TFWe issue 2, which takes a fond look back at the good and the bad of Botcon 2011.

All this, and a chance to win a BTS-04 Sonicron over at the Toyark! If you've not entered what're you waiting for? Check out the thread over on Toyark!

Dark of the Moon Shockwave Recolor Robot Mode Image
Posted by News Fetcher on July 18 '11 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
An image has surfaced online of the Dark of the Moon Shockwave recolor in robot mode. This alternate version of Shockwave as many of you anticipated has mostly gray arms and legs, with a purple chest and head. It's certainly a striking design that is probably a reference to Astro Magnum or Animated Shockwave, but will fans embrace it or leap for the more traditionally colored one already on shelves?

Today we've got a fresh look at the Japan-only Supreme class entry into the Dark of the Moon line - Jetwings Optimus Prime. This gigantic toy is a remold of the acclaimed Revenge of the Fallen Buster Optimus Prime with a gigantic flight pack to recreate the spectacular scenes from the final battle in Chicago at the end of Transformers Dark of the Moon. How does it stack up to its Supreme Class pricetag? Check out 2005 Content Staff member SydneyY's review (and extensive images) by reading on!

Hasbro Reports Revenue and Earnings Growth for the Second Quarter 2011
Posted by News Fetcher on July 18 '11 at 08:00 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
On the last Hasbro-Press Meeting, Brian Goldner; the President and CEO of Hasbro mentioned that profits were low due to the fact that there were no Transformers Live Action Movies to boost the toy sales. But, now that there is one… guess? Oh yes! Here comes profit!

Hasbro issued a press release mentioning…

"As expected, top line momentum in our business began to build during the quarter, led by strong gains in the TRANSFORMERS brand, driven by TRANSFORMERS: Dark of the Moon, and BEYBLADE, as well as continued double-digit growth in the International segment," Goldner said. "We have continued to make important investments in our business which will help drive both top and bottom line growth in the future. In the third quarter we are launching key new initiatives, including the global introduction of KRE-O, our new construction brand, the addition of the SESAME STREET brand to our preschool business, and innovative new products in core brands such as FURREAL FRIENDS and LITTLEST PET SHOP."

But most of the profit from the third movie will be counted for the third quarter.

Licensing revenue associated with TRANSFORMERS: Dark of the Moon will begin to be recorded in the third quarter 2011.

Bic Camera Exclusive Dark Steel
Posted by News Fetcher on July 17 '11 at 10:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Gaokaiser dropped by to share with us an image of an advertisement for a new Bic Camera exclusive Transformer. Dark Steel, who will be called Dark Iron on his US release, will be released in Japan as a Bic Camera exclusive item. Don't worry US fans, he will still be a general release as a part of Wave 5 as well - this promotion is like the old "USA editions" of days gone past.

Additionally, this advert marks the first publicly available image of Dark Iron / Dark Steel. As revealed at Botcon he's a retooled version of Sideswipe in black and teal, who gains a lot of yellow in robot mode. He also wields a recolor of Starscream's MechTech weapon! The new head is unfortunately not very easy to see on this image. He's supposed to be a Beast Wars Quickstrike homage, how well do you think he pulls this style off?
