Some new images of the Junkion Blacksmith Devastator add-on kit have been posted over at ACToys
. These new images are clearly of a very early version of the kit, lacking a lot of final details. They do give an idea of the scale of the kit, which will feature big chunky forums and upper legs to make Generation 1 Devastator look a bit more powerful. Surprisingly though there's no parts included to alter the shoulder connections, leaving the arms looking very stiff by comparison.
Junkion Blacksmith have also released a piece of art through their Weibo account
, which gives the name of the set: Power of Destruction.Read Replies (0)

We've got a pair of awesome new Transformers galleries for you today! War for Cybertron Optimus Prime and Megatron are some awesome, fun toys - and both received black repaints during the summer. The Tokyo Toy Show exclusive set of these black repaints, the Darkside set, is the subject of todays gallery. Darkside Optimus Prime
in this set rocks the Robots in Disguise Scourge
colors, while Darkside Megatron
sports a deco inspired by Animated Shadow Blade Megatron
or possibly his latest IDW comics design. Either way, the deco rocks and brings out the full menace of Megatron.

, which is coming sometime in 2012. Runabout and Runamuck (Who is the Club Freebie toy
for the next year) are both remolds of the Generations Wheeljack mold with a new head that is shared among both of them, and are based upon the G1 characters of the same name.

Transformers has been known not only for the cool toys that the media advertises, but also the officially licensed merchandise produced as well. TFW2005.com board member RisingPhoenix86 shares such an instance with us found at JCPenney's. Two sets of Transformers: Dark of the Moon clocks, one featuring Optimus Prime and the other featuring Bumblebee, are available for purchase at $28 either at your local JCPenney's store or by ordering via their website.
Each set features both a clock and a digital watch that transforms (!) stored in a tin carrying case. These novelty items even point back to the early Generation One days with the transforming watches, as they are very akin to the mail-away exclusive G1 Time Warrior and the Watchbots (which was an attempt by Takara to market their Kronoform line).

TFW2005 will be holding it's first ever official "Member Meet Up" on October 8th, 2011 (that isn't attached to a Botcon, that is
). This will be on a Saturday night, the night before New Jersey Collectors Con
in south New Jersey. It will take place at RED HOT & BLUE and starts at 8 PM. It is free for everyone, adults over 21 only (it is a bar). A live Blues band will be playing, the place serves food and it is a full service bar.
There will be door prizes given away throughout the night as well, in both Transformers and G.I. Joe flavors. Speaking of Joe, this isn't just for TFW2005, but the whole 2005 family, so HissTank and Toyark regulars will be in attendance too.
Also running during the party, for those that want to float around while drinking, will be the premiere screening of a new G.I. Joe fan film, "Operation Retrieval". It will be on continuous loop all night in an area where you can hear it. You can see a trailer for it after the break.
So, if you are in the New York, New Jersey, Philly areas, try and come down the night before NJCC and hang out with the TFW2005 crew. It would be great to put faces to all those names! If it works out, we'll do more!New Jersey Collectors Con
takes place the next day, Sunday October 9th, 2011, in Cherry Hill New Jersey. Check the website for details.
See you all there!Read Replies (0)

One Shall Rise Part 2 airs on 10/8/11 with One Shall Rise Part 3 - the season 1 finale - airing on 10/16/11 (that might be a typo as Transformers Prime usually airs on a Saturday on the Hub, and 10/16 is a Sunday - so it might be 10/15/11)
The air dates for upcoming episodes is as follows:
Stronger, Faster - 9/17/11
One Shall Fall - 9/24/11
One Shall Rise Part 1 - 10/1/11
