TFW Gallery Update Generation 1 Skullcruncher
Posted by News Fetcher on April 03 '11 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As you all vote on that all important Transformers Hall of Fame 2011 poll, I thought I'd draw your attention to this Generation 1 Skullcruncher gallery, recently submitted to us by 2005 Boards member HighPrime.

Skullcruncher is a Decepticon with a special place in my heart - back in the New Year's sales of 1988, I remember picking up this alligator Decepticon to give some backup to my Scorponok who I got for Christmas. For a long time it was him, Apeface, Snapdragon and Scorponok as my Headmasters - he is one of the toys from my childhood who got a lot of play. And even now looking back and reading his bio, there's nothing about him that is not cool. He's an alligator Decepticon whose gun has the sole purpose of making his enemies easier to chew! He's partnered with a businessman who plans on using the Decepticon to get rid of his business rivals! Grax's pilot seat in beast mode is sitting inside Skullcruncher's mouth (better hope he doesn't get hungry while you're in there guy)!

Looking at this gallery brought back a lot of happy childhood memories for me. Click here to check out the gallery and see if HighPrime's excellent photography does the same for you too.

And who knows, maybe it will be Skullcruncher for the Hall of Fame 2012?

Transformers Hall of Fame Voting on TFW2005 - Less Than 24 Hours Left!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 03 '11 at 10:45 AM
By Kickback from TFW2005:
This is it Transformers fans!

With less than 24 hours left until voting ends on TFW2005.COM, we are in a virtual tie between the top two candidates - Erector and Grimlock!

It can be easily said that this year's Transformers Hall of Fame nomination and voting process has gone above and beyond last year's, with a virtual and sudden fan-movement to vote in a totally obscure and highly contraversial candidate! While last year saw a ton of users on our message forums include signature images supporting their candidate, this year saw a ton of discussion threads on nominees, a massive signature image campaign, and even a Facebook page or two supporting their candidate!

Not to be left out of discussion, Waspinator and Shockwave are also in a dead-heat for 3rd and 4th place, with Waspinator recently overtaking Shockwave. Nearly 800 votes have come in, but we still need to be able to declare a true winner to TFW2005's poll!

We need YOU to vote RIGHT NOW on who deserves to be inducted in to the 2nd Transformers Hall of Fame!

Who do you vote for? An obscure and unfortunately-named Micromaster? A lovable and fan-favorite self-proclaimed king and bad-ass? A bug with plans who just can't catch a break? Or quite possibly the biggest mastermind in all of Transformers lore?

Click HERE and VOTE today!

NOTE: This vote is one of many currently under-way on numerous Transformers fansites. All fansite voting totals will be calculated and turned in to a final, official vote in the future on Transformers.com. Winner will be announced at this year's BotCon, taking place in Pasadena, California.

By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Amazon has updated their Transformers: Dark of the Moon Novelization page with the cover page. The cover features the Transformers 3 Promotional Poster we’ve been seeing for a long time. Although this poster appeared on various occasions; once at a convention inside a Hasbro booth and on another time featured on a folder belonging to the DOTM crew working closely with Michael Bay, it is never popularized as an official poster.

Few other updated items relating to Transformers are also there…

Dark Of The Moon Voyager Sentinel Prime Confirmed Plus New G1 And Movie Toy Box Sets
Posted by News Fetcher on April 02 '11 at 12:00 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
2005 boards member Red Leader of site sponsor Kapow Toys has received confirmation that a voyager Red Leader AKA Voyager Sentinel Prime figure for the Dark Of The Moon line is on the way. What's interesting is that he also got word of 2 new listings:

Description: #430254 T/F G1CONVOY & Movie OPTIMUS w/TRAILER

Description: #430261 T/F G1MEGATRON & Movie MEGATRON
All are scheduled for release in August. The aforementioned G1+movie Prime/Megatron bundles carry an MSRP of $100 each. When asked if the G1 Optimus Prime And Movie Optimus Prime With Trailer listing was the same as the previously announced set shown recently, Red Leader responded with:

thats the standalone release for Japan, these boxsets are apparently something different we're told

Now it's been said before that reissues of G1 Megatron and even Classics Megatron would be out of the question stateside. So what's truly in these sets?

Transformers Prime Episodes 14 and 15
Posted by News Fetcher on April 02 '11 at 02:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
MSN's Transformers Prime episode listing has updated with the titles of the next two Transformers Prime episodes. They are, "Out of his Head" and "Shadowzone".

Cryptic, no? Given the description of episode 13 offered, Out of his Head might well be a continuation of Sick Mind. Speaking of Sick Mind, a more detailed synopsis is now available on TVGuide - A Decepticon plague infects Optimus Prime, so Arcee and Bumblebee sneak onto the Nemesis to find the cure.

Whatever these two latest cryptic titles refer to, the story of Transformers Prime is beginning to gain pace as the halfway mark of the first season is passed. As always, we will update you when new information becomes available.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Talks Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Posted by News Fetcher on April 01 '11 at 06:45 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
Congratulations Rosie Huntington-Whiteley! She is this year’s Cinemacon (previously known as Showest) “Female Star of Tomorrow”.
Rosie then talked with Access Hollywood and MTV, who caught-up with her after the Convention.

"I've seen the last two movies, so I kind of knew what I was getting into, but obviously not at all as well," Whiteley said of being a bit overwhelmed by the big movie experience. "It was a crazy opportunity that was handed to me, and I spent seven months making the movie with a great cast and a great director, and it's been a roller coaster of a lifetime for sure," she said. "I'm still on it, I don't know if I'm going to get off anytime soon."

She also had fun explaining her audition and a kissing scene in the movie with Shia LaBeouf (Sam Witwicky).

Rosie, who is playing Carly of Transformers 3 then praised Director Michal Bay for the commitment he’s been doing for the Transformers franchise throughout the past 6 years.

Take a look at both interviews, after the jump.

April Fools! Fake Poll is Fake
Posted by News Fetcher on April 01 '11 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
April Fools! Earlier today we posted a thread asking for you to vote on your picks for our submission to the Hall of Fame, containing such notoriously questionably named characters as the legendary Erector, Windbreaker and Drillnuts. Naturally as many of you deduced this had nothing to do with the Hasbro Transformers Hall of Fame...

... because you were actually voting in this year's "TFW April Fools Day Hall of Fame"! With a 18,016 vote lead (in a thread with only 3,536 views) the natural winner who rose up higher than all the other silly named Transformers was Erector!

Erector's campaign manager, Locustreign, had this to say about the little Micromaster's win: "vote rigging? What's that?"

Hope you all had a fun time! Stay tuned for the real Hasbro Transformers Hall of Fame poll in just a few short hours!
