Dark of the Moon Lucky Draw Campaign More Information
Posted by News Fetcher on April 25 '11 at 05:00 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards Content and Photo Staff member SydneyY has provided us with some more information on the Dark of the Moon Prize Campaign from Takara-Tomy that will be running in Japan over the summer to celebrate the launch of the new movie:

The chromed weapons are likely to be handed out at various retailers at first come, first served base to the customers who spend certain amount of money on DOTM toys. More details to be announced later. Campaign is to start on 14 May.

Chromed Bumblebee is a lucky draw, but you enter online. The duration of this campaign is 14 May to 31 July and you need to enter 2 serial numbers (numbers that are printed on Mech tech character cards packed with the toys, for example) to enter the draw.
The prize is as listed;
A) Golden "Tritanium Bumblebee" - 10
B) DVD/Blu-Ray double pack (you can't choose the format) - 10
C) Golden Mech-tech weapon "Tritanium Energy Blade" - 100
D) Downloadable PC desktop wallpaper, different one monthly - to all

There will be two more of the same type campaigns from August onward, and when you enter all 3 campaigns, you are in the draw for the golden "Tritanium Optimus Prime" - 100 to be won.

I don't think you can enter the draws unless you have a Japanese address though.

By Super_Megatron from TFW2005:
Cybertron.ca reports that Transformers Dark of the Moon movie toys are being spotted early at retail locations in Canada.

These sightings are happening in Ottawa where the first wave of legends class were found, and Quebec where the first wave of DOTM deluxe figures, voyager class and cyberverse were on shelves.

Auto Assembly announces Nick Roche, Andrew Wildman, and 2012 news!
Posted by News Fetcher on April 24 '11 at 02:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Auto Assembly, the UK's largest Transformers convention and BigPete appreciation weekend have released a new update about the 2011 and 2012 conventions.

Starting with 2011, there's two more guests confirmed - Transformers comic legends Andrew Wildman and Nick Roche, a pair who need no introductions. Their return is sure to prove popular as always especially with Nick Roche's issues of the IDW Transformers ongoing hitting stores in the weeks leading up to Auto Assembly - so plenty of good stuff to take along to get signed! They will be joining the confirmed guests including Simon Furman, David Kaye and Gregg Berger!

For 2012 there is some more news. In addition to the news we previously reported regarding the confirmation of the location, Auto Assembly 2012 has already secured five guests - keeping tight-lipped for the time being on who they are - but also of interest is the announcement of an Auto Assembly 2012 exclusive lithograph! The litho will be available to all staying in the official 2012 hotel - the Hilton - in a similar style to the OTFCC Sunstreaker exclusive from years back. No details on what it is yet of course - it's still over a year away - but it promises to be a great momento of a crazy fun weekend.

Figure King 159 Transformers Scans
Posted by News Fetcher on April 24 '11 at 01:15 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
2005 Boards member Masabon has once again shared with us some scans from the latest issue of Figure King. Figure King 159 has six pages of Transformers goodness, all Dark of the Moon / movie series related. The first wave of toys for Japan are showcased, so we get some nice new images of Optimus Prime with Trailer, Leader Bumblebee, Deluxe Bumblebee, Sentinel Prime, Autobot Ratchet, Ironhide, Autobot Skids, Sideswipe, Autobot Topspin, Roadbuster, Air Raid, Arcee (those two are non-movie characters), Megatron, Starscream, Barricade and Crankcase. There's also a page on the Dual Model Kits, Stealth Force and Robo Fighters toys.

These scans showcase the various gimmicks of the MechTech weapons, and there is also a nice look at the way the MechTech weapons interact. Of note is an official image of Leader Bumblebee transformed into a representation of his Stealth Force design, plus a demonstration of how Optimus Prime's trailer can hold the Autobot cars, or serve as an armory for the MechTech weapons.

Last but not least there is a brief callout talking about Million Publishing's exclusive United Stepper, but no new information is offered beyond what we already knew.

Our friends and sponsors TFSource have shared a new image of the custom World's Smallest Transformers Astrotrain. This image shows a CGI render of what the final version of the toy will be like - as the render shows, it is very faithful to the original toy like all of JustiToys custom smallest Transformers, although some improvements to the design have been made particularly in the arms.

Don't forget TFSource will be carrying an exclusive black & white version of the JustiToys Military Transport, based on Astrotrain's original look when he was released in Japan in 1985.

Dark of the Moon Jetwings Optimus Prime will be Buster Optimus Prime Retooled
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '11 at 01:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
As speculated from the earliest promotional images to emerge, Takara-Tomy's awesome Jetwings Optimus Prime - only planned for a release in Japan - will use the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Optimus Prime as its base figure. But here is what you might not have heard - information is reaching many retailers from their wholesalers that Jetwings Optimus Prime will be using a variation on the Buster Optimus Prime tooling, rather than the regular Leader Optimus Prime. Buster Optimus Prime was notable for taking the already near Masterpiece quality of the Leader class toy and adding a much higher end paint job, chromed finish on some of the parts and redesigning the gas tanks to transform into Optimus Prime's gun from the films. Now factor in the fact that Jetwings Optimus Prime adds to that twin gatling cannons and a flight pack, and you've got an awesome new combination.

There's no official pictures yet, though, so the specifics of the deco have not been confirmed. This may, however, be the supreme incarnation of the Movie series Optimus Prime toy!

Hasbro Getting Ready For The Big Day - Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Toys Are Coming
Posted by News Fetcher on April 23 '11 at 09:30 AM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
We are only 3 weeks away from Transformers: Dark of the Moon Merchandise Release Date.

Back in October, 2010 we received our first confirmation of exactly when we will see Transformers 3 Toys hitting shelves near you.

And then, thanks to TFW2005 Member big hank who found an advertisement pinpointing the exact date of the release. By this time we have already learned the Size Classes of DOTM Figures.

When the first Dark of the Moon toy was leaked back in December, Transformers: Hunt For The Decepticons campaign is ending and "Transformers: Cyber Missions" is over. Reveal The Shield is just beginning and Power Core Combiners are everywhere (sort of).

More leaked toy images surfaced everywhere. People were commenting, blaming, fighting, supporting and everything.

And then came the official reveal by Hasbro and everyone was free to share.

News has reached us of an upcoming Dark of the Moon Prize Campaign / Lucky Draw Campaign. Details are sketchy right now on just how one goes about getting their hands on these guys. There's two pages on Takara-Tomy's webspace suggesting two different campaigns - the first is located here and seems to have a campaign date of May 2011 to July 2011. There are four main prizes listed plus one extra - we'll get to him in a minute. The "A" prize is a fully gold chromed Deluxe Bumblebee from the Dark of the Moon line. B is both the previous movies on DVD, C is a gold chrome version of the Japan-only Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime gun / sword weapon. The D prize is a Transformers themed calendar. The last item on the page is a unlettered item suggesting it's either somehow unconnected from the campaign or is a mail in with enough non-winning tickets - that's an all gold chrome version of Japan's Dark of the Moon Voyager Optimus Prime with his trailer.

There is also a MechTech Weapon campaign, which is giving away various chromed MechTech weapons. Again, no word on how you get these but the smart money is on spending a certain amount of money on Dark of the Moon (Darkside Moon in Japan).

We'll update you with more information on these items when it becomes available.

Dark of the Moon Dual Model Kits New Images

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Toys R Us Japan have updated their preorder pages for the Dark of the Moon Dual Model Kit Optimus Prime and Bumblebee with new full color photos. The images of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee show off the range of poseability, and in Optimus Prime's case also shows off the optional parts and the different variations on how they can be attached (the swords for example can replace the hands, or be positioned alongside them).

These listings also reveal that Dual Model Kit Optimus Prime will come with a special bonus part through Toys R Us Japan - his hook arm attachment, seen in Revenge of the Fallen.

Check out the new imagery by clicking on the links above.
