TakaraTomy Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on August 27 '10 at 09:45 PM
By Shin Densetsu from TFW2005:
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Battle Ops Bumblebee was primarily designed by TakaraTomy, unlike the Ultimate Bumblebee, who was designed primarily by Hasbro. With that said, it's no suprise that TakaraTomy will be releasing Battle Ops Bumblebee in Japan. What may be surprising, is that it will be released(image from Futaba Channel) as part of the Transformers Movie Masterpiece line!

Dan Gilvezan - Not in the Future for Transformers
Posted by News Fetcher on August 27 '10 at 06:00 PM
By Kickback from TFW2005:
Sad news friends! The voice of the beloved and super popular Cooler in the animation series from the 1980's, Pound Puppies, Dan Gilvezan, has not been approached for any upcoming roles for The Transformers, whether it be television or video game related.

In an interview with 2D-X.COM, Dan Gilvezan states that he has not been approached for a role in anything Transformers related, and he believes it is due to the fact that Volkswagen wants nothing to do with Transformers, and thus, Bumblebee is forever a Camaro. And that his voice was that of the old character, not anything related to the new Bumblebee, and so he's forgotten.

Transformers G1 Punch-Out Book Pics
Posted by News Fetcher on August 27 '10 at 08:00 AM
By Joe Moore from TFW2005:
Last week, we featured an ebay auction for a Transformers G1 display. After posting it, I got conflicting reports on whether it was official or not. Well, wonder no more. 2005 Boards member rwalsh17 was kind enough to take some photos of his pristine 1980's Transformers G1 Punch-Out Book. The photos were so nice, that it was a no brainer to share them with our readers, who always love a bit of G1 nostalgia.

Rampage Among the Ruins Toys R Us Exclusive 3-pack Released
Posted by News Fetcher on August 27 '10 at 03:30 AM
By Megablah from TFW2005:
Holy TRU 3-packs Batman! Toys R Us has been throwing out the newest of new toys recently and they don't seem to want to let up as their newest exclusive 3-pack, dubbed Rampage Among the Ruins, has been found in an Orange County Toys R Us.

This pack doesn't include any new characters, but rather 3 deluxe repaints (two of which have been repainted several times *cough* Canon Bumblebee and Ravage *cough*) Like the Gathering at the Nemesis TRU 3-pack, the biggest draw of this set is probably that it's the only way to get a certain deco of a specific character. In this case, it is a movie accurate deco of Deluxe Rampage in red. Now Hasbro did release a red version of Rampage by itself, however, that had very limited (and poor) distribution and was not as detailed as this version.

TFW2005 Sound-Off! Which Previous Series Needs More Love?
Posted by News Fetcher on August 26 '10 at 08:45 PM
By Kickback from TFW2005:
It's that time again - no, not another news update full of failed attempts at wit and humor from yours truly (that will come when I don't work in less than 7 hours), it's time for another TFW2005 Sound-Off!!!

The Transformers have been around for over 25 years. That's older than half of our user-base (gross uneducated estimation)! In those 25 plus years, we've had NUMEROUS Transformers series, each with their own specified titles. If you'd like to count them, in no specific order and probably one or two left out, they are:
