Generation 1 Concept Art by Masakatsu Saito
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '11 at 12:46 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Finishing up our look at scans from Generations 2011 Volume 2 by The Allspark we have some scans from the Design Maniax DX section of the book. This section highlights the work of Generation 1 concept art designer Masakatsu Saito who did a lot of work on the late 80s series of toys, and collects his lineart concepts for some of the toys he worked on. Some of the concepts are very familiar and recognizable - others are very out there. Among the concepts in this section of the book are:

Generation 1 Overlord - with some alternate head concepts that would have been a second cockpit for the jet when the "Mega Child" section was deployed.
Generation 1 Pretenders Cloudburst, Landmine, Waverider, Bomb-Burst, Skullgrin, Submarauder, Iguanus and Roadblock - these are pretty different to their actual toys, in fact I'm guessing that reptillian design belongs to Iguanus! The Autobot Pretenders notably would have had more animal themed suits, with their inner robots looking more like a tokusatsu metal hero design or VR Troopers than the Transformers we know. The Decepticon trio look similar in Pretender mode, but their inner robots notably look more organic, like cybernetic versions of their shell beasts. Ironically this is the route IDW took to re imagining these guys years later!
Transformers Victory Concepts including Star Saber, Great Shot, Road Caesar, Deathsaurus and Liokaiser. These mostly look like the final versions, although Liokaiser has sketches of a large melee weapon formed from melee weapons of the six individual robots - this turns up a bit in the animation (but without the combining weapons) but is completely absent on the toys.

Masterpiece Convoy Version 2 Images and Concepts
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '11 at 12:31 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
From the old... to the new! Moving away now from toys that we never got, let's take a look at some scans of an awesome and upcoming toy - Masterpiece Convoy Version 2.0. This new mold Masterpiece Optimus Prime is looking, well, Prime. Fantastically detailed and sized between the original 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime and the Generation 1 Optimus Prime, this new Masterpiece also comes with a little Spike mini-figure and his trailer, with Roller this time. Could it be the greatest Masterpiece yet? It's due out later this month so you won't have long to wait and find out!

Unicron Generation 1 and Beast Wars Neo Unreleased Prototypes
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '11 at 12:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
If Fortress Maximus was the biggest Transformer ever made, then Generation 1 Unicron was the biggest Transformer never released. These next scans that we are highlighting chart the tale of two toys that were never released. The first was Generation 1 Unicron, although evidently from these images, there were three of them. The early prototype is very different to the other unreleased prototypes which have been shown in the past.

The other is the well-documented Beast Wars Neo Unicron. Unicron's resurrection was a major plot point in the show, and his return was to be recognised with a new toy - but due to a number of factors it was not to be. Shown here is "Neocron" in all his glory. There are demonstrations of his transformation, full views on his robot mode from front side and back, even views of the gimmicks.

Neither of these toys ever saw the light of day, and it was not until Transformers Armada that we finally got a Unicron toy at mass retail. Check these images out to see the previous attempts at rendering the great big bad of Transformers in toy form.

Generation 1 Fortress Maximus Concepts and Prototypes
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '11 at 12:16 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Next up in the cavalcade of early Transformers scannage - Generation 1 Fortress Maximus. Fort Max is that legendary toy perched on many collector's grail lists - the biggest Transformer ever made, and with a secondary market pricetag to match. These scans chart the progression of Maximus through the design process, from the original concepts, to wooden prototypes, to the final prototypes. It's an excellent example of the creative process every Transformer goes through, doubly interesting for showing how that process worked in 1987, and even more interesting because this isn't any Transformer's creative process, but the biggest one ever made. So check them out and enjoy.

Generation 1 Wheelie Prototype
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '11 at 12:01 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Let's dive in to the Allspark's scans from Generations 2011 Volume 2 now with a look at some of the many prototype items that are on show in the book - one of which is an unmade Generation 1 Wheelie. Much larger than what was actually released, this take on Wheelie also had more moving parts and the final look was closer to the animation model. Plus this early version looks to have shoulders, elbows, hips and knees as articulation points - practically unheard of at the time!

Masterpiece Huffer Concept - In Your Dreams
Posted by News Fetcher on September 13 '11 at 12:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The Allspark have shared a huge amount of scans from the recent Transformers Generations 2010 Volume 2 with the fandom, and we'll be highlighting the best of those scans in this next series of frontpage posts. We'll kick off with this little item from the two page spread dealing with Masterpiece Convoy Version 2.0 - a little box out showing what appears to be a Masterpiece version of Huffer.

Unfortunately, it's not a future Masterpiece release, at least not yet. According to several members of our boards who have been able to translate the caption accompanying the image, it is purely the designer's concept - his dream project if he were allowed to make any Transformer he wants, if you will.

In other words, it's a cool look at a designer's dream project, but not a look at a future Masterpiece.

Shia LaBeouf Feels Vindicated After Transformers: Dark Of The Moon’s Success, Megan Will Watch TF3
Posted by News Fetcher on September 12 '11 at 10:01 PM
By NIBMRatchet from TFW2005:
MTV recently had a chat with actor Shia LaBeouf (Sam Witwicky) of Michael Bay Transformers Live Action Movie Series and he had this to say…

"For me, I feel vindicated for having guilt on my shoulders for the second movie. There is vindication in this one being successful and people enjoying it."

Speaking of Shia, we shouldn’t forget Megan Fox; ex-Transformers actress. She’s saying to the press that she will watch Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

“I haven't seen it yet, but I will see it. I mean, if they hadn't been hitting me so hard on the press tour, I would have gone to the theater. But I felt like that would have been a disaster: Me sitting with a packed theater of people watching the movie. So I didn't go. I mean, I have nothing against watching it. And I love Shia to death; I love him unconditionally. And I love that crew. I'm really close to the hair, makeup and wardrobe that made that movie. I want to see it for them. I know it looked amazing in the trailer. Out of all three trailers, that was the trailer that I was like, "Wow, sh*t, this is a huge movie." So I think it will be an interesting, fun thing to watch, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.”

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Yes dear readers, you read that correctly. The "lost" assortment of Reveal the Shield Legends, which contained the likes of new Legends class versions of Optimus Prime, Starscream, "Gold" Bumblebee, Megatron, Prowl and Trailbreaker - now called Trailcutter - have been found at US retail. This time out they have appeared in discount chain store Tuesday Morning. Will they turn up in any other discount or small chain stores? We hope so! These Legends are some excellent little toys that are well worth checking out.

HK-TF has shared some new pictures of the upcoming Cyberverse Legion Soundwave figure. These new pics are a good example of exactly how much detail they can cram into a tiny figure. Soundwave has a very detailed head sculpt as well as his "speaker"-esque weapons in his arms. There are also some comparison pictures with the 1st Legends Soundwave mold and the Commander Shockwave mold.

TFW Gallery Generations Scourge, Thundercracker and Wheeljack

With all the classics love from TFC Toys today, I thought we'd throw in a bit of our own, so I'd like to highlight to you some galleries we've had done for us by 2005 Boards Photo team member thedrkness48! Hailing from the later waves of Generations, we have galleries of Generations Wave 7, which featured Wheeljack and Thundercracker! But that's not all. In a little thing called Transformers the Movie (which I'm told recently turned 25) Thundercracker was reborn as a new Decepticon named Scourge. He got a new toy in Generations Wave 6. Guess what - we've got a gallery of him too! Click on the links below to check out the galleries:
