Dark of the Moon Robo Power Bash Bots Released at US Retail
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '11 at 10:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
At this point, it is becoming obvious that just about every toy due for a release on 16 May is going to be found in advance of the street date. Today's sighting: the Robo Power Bash Bots! This assortment consists of a pair of two packs with "smash and bash" action - the toys are attached to little bases that allow you to crash them into each other, transform them and make them duke it out, just like the head on collision shown briefly in the film trailer! They were sighted at a Target in Washington by 2005 boards member jimmynguyen41.

Greg Berger to Attend Botcon 2011
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '11 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Botcon has announced its next guest for Botcon 2011! Greg Berger will be appearing at Botcon 2011. Greg is responsible for providing the voices of many of my personal favorite characters from Generation 1 including Hall of Fame hopeful Grimlock! He also voiced Skyfire, Outback and Longhaul in Generation 1. Beyond Transformers, Greg Berger provided the voices of Spirit, Firefly, Cutter and Ripcord on GI Joe, and Cornfed on Duckman, and that's just the tip of a very impressive resume.

Be sure to meet Greg Berger this summer at Botcon 2011, or if you're in the UK he will also be attending Auto Assembly 2011.

Dark of the Moon Walmart Exclusive Bonus Value Pack Released
Posted by News Fetcher on May 09 '11 at 04:15 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member hierojux reports on another early release item from Transformers Dark of the Moon - the Walmart exclusive bonus value pack of Optimus Prime and Comettor. Optimus Prime is the Voyager Class toy from Hunt for the Decepticons, with the hooks on his arms instead of the swords and a starry detail on his windshield. Comettor is a recolored version of 2007's Landmine and Revenge of the Fallen's Armorhide, and is decoed to look like the lunar buggy. They were sighted in a California Walmart, and doubtless are in stockrooms ready to go out on endcaps next week with the official launch of the Dark of the Moon toyline.

Keep up to date with the latest sightings in your area in our Transformers sightings forum.

By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
Once in awhile we like to do a mix of different auctions with our "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue" posts. For those who aren't familiar, we do auctions for an old item, a modern item a licensed item and a blue (or something that rhymes with blue) item. It gives a nice cross section of some of the great items we've seen from Transformers over the years.

Something Old
Transformers G1 Skids & Sunstreaker VSZ Giftset MIB

Something New
Transformers Generations Kup, Wheeljack, Warpath and Thundercracker

Something Borrowed
Transformers G1 Sealed Tyco Train Set

Something Blue

Toyzz Unlimited ARX-01 Polaris Add On Kit New Images
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '11 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
5Fay of HK-TF.com has shared some new images of the ARX-01 Polaris head add-on kit for Transformers Animated Arcee. The aim of the set is to make Animated Arcee into a better representation of her Generation 1 self by way of a new head and new guns. While the sculpt is pretty good, and we've got to give props to the rather nice looking cube packaging, from these images the finish of the material looks rough and uneven, which unfortunately does not look good on any toy but especially not on a design as sleek and smooth as Animated Arcee. Hopefully, this is just a result of these pictures being an early painted prototype rather than an indication of the quality of the whole run, but we will not really know until these start arriving in people's hands.

We'll keep you updated on the latest involving this set.

iGear Sunstorm and Current Rainmaker Unofficial Custom Masterpiece Seekers
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '11 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
iGear have updated their Facebook photo gallery (requires account) with some images of their unofficial unlicensed Masterpiece Seekers. On the one side, we have a new addition to their production line - a blue and white jet named Current. He's based on one of the many generic Decepticons seen on Cybertron during the run of the early Generation 1 episodes. Talk about him here.

On the other hand, we have some actual prototype images of the iGear Sunstorm. He's very orange! Talk about him here.

Please note these are very early images, and Current is probably just Storm photoshopped to give an indication of colors, given it's the same two images. Please note also that these are completely unlicensed and not authorized by Hasbro or Takara-Tomy in any way.

Hunt for the Decepticons Optimus Prime Black Version Lawsons Exclusive
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '11 at 01:30 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Snakas has updated his blog with new details of an upcoming Lawsons Exclusive Optimus Prime toy. It is a black version of Hunt for the Decepticons Voyager Optimus Prime - the version with the blades that was released in the rest of the world rather than the hooks version released in Japan. According to Snakas, it is available for preorder with the advance purchase of a ticket for Transformers Darkside Moon aka Dark of the Moon in Japan. The pre-purchase period began on 1 May, and runs through to 28 July. The toy itself is expected to release on 9 August. The item is priced at 6760 yen (covering the advance ticket sale of 1300 yen and Optimus Prime at 5460 yen).

Lawson is also offering a limited edition Optimus Prime metal strap. Priced at 735 yen, there is no need to pre-purchase a ticket for this item. Pre-ordering on it runs from 1 May to 30 June, with the item being sent out from 14 July.

TFW Movie Transformers Gallery Update
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '11 at 03:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
With the impending launch of the new Transformers Dark of the Moon toyline, we thought that now might be a good time to share with you this look at some of the Movie toys from the past Movie universe related lines. Our photo staff have been hard at work filling in some of the gaps in our Transformers Toy Galleries so here for your enjoyment are:

Human Alliance Bumblebee by SydneyY - he's been in every Human Alliance assortment so far and he's a great, if overexposed toy. Check out this gallery to see him at his best!

Hunt for the Decepticons Terradive, also by SydneyY - I hear this guy is warming shelves in some stores. This is a great pity because as a toy he rocks! Check out this gallery to see why you should give one a spot in your collection.

Hunt for the Decepticons Sidearm Sideswipe by TFareCool - the swordbot turns gunslinger with this version of the character. He's also pretty sharp with his flame deco - check out the pictures!

Power Core Combiners Icepick with Chainclaw by thenatureboywoo - since evidently Icepick here is the same character as the upcoming Human Alliance Basic release (according to the bio), it makes sense to feature this fun and quirky figure here. Weird arms are all part of his charm, check out the gallery and see for yourself why this toy is so enjoyable!

Leader Starscream Third Party Add On Set
Posted by News Fetcher on May 08 '11 at 12:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
A post on ACToys.net has revealed that a custom add-on kit for the Movieverse Leader Class Starscream is in the works. The add-on set looks to add Starscream's back mounted afterburners from the CGI model that were not possible to realize in toy form, along with a buzzsaw attachment for his arm cannon. It is being made by a new group named "Fans Want It".

We'll update with more information as it becomes available.

Reveal the Shield Windcharger Assortment Released at US Retail?
Posted by News Fetcher on May 07 '11 at 01:45 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
We have a report from 2005 Boards member Sidecutter that a new case of Reveal the Shield Scouts - sans Windchargers - has been found in a Walmart in Louisville, KY. On the pegs were a pair of Chopsaws, together with the other toys in the case, in the correct numbers to be the Windcharger case. Windcharger himself was absent though.

Take this report with a pinch of salt of course, because it is possible this is someone purchasing the entire case online, then returning the rest of the toys to Walmart to recoup costs. Although, as Sidecutter himself points out, "the idea that someone returning ten other toys, with numerous duplicates and no receipt, wouldn't raise some eyebrows even at Walmart doesn't really seem plausible. Also, it wouldn't help the person doing it much, at $5 a figure."

Of course, with mere days remaining until Dark of the Moon is unleashed upon the world, it is questionable just how plentiful these toys will actually be at retail - if this isn't a return.

Flint Dille to Attend Botcon 2011

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
More Botcon 2011 guest news for you! This time out we have word that the legendary Flint Dille will be attending. Flint Dille is, to put it plainly, to the Transformers cartoon what Bob Budiansky is to the Marvel comics run. He is credited as executive script consultant for the whole series, and wrote the Five Faces of Darkness story arc that kicked off season 3 as well as the episode Prime Target which gave us Lord Chumley. He is also credited as a story consultant for the 1986 animated movie. And that is not even beginning to get into his many and numerous pieces of work outside of Transformers. A chance to meet one of the people responsible for a large part of the franchise that we love does not come along everyday - but you will have a chance to meet the man himself at Botcon 2011.

Excellent, yessssssss!

David Kaye has posted on his twitter account that he will be appearing at Botcon 2011 as a guest. In his post he mentions that he will be at the convention on Friday June 3 from 1 to about 4. David Kaye is the extremely talented voice actor who brought Beast Wars Megatron, one of the most magnificently evil Megatrons ever, to life. He also voiced Megatron in Armada, Energon and Cybertron, before switching to the Autobots to voice Optimus Prime (plus Grimlock and Lugnut) in Transformers Animated. David Kaye is a first-class actor and all-round great guy to meet, so if you've not had the pleasure of meeting him before, and you're at Botcon 2011, be sure to take this opportunity to meet him.

UPDATE: Botcon has also tweeted to confirm that David Kaye will be attending for "autographs and a very special panel. Details coming later!"
