TFW2005 forums member Rookbartley
has discovered a new Transformers: The Last Knight
toy at their local store: the Optimus Prime Battle Blaster Sword! This roleplay toy has light-up features as well as both sounds and voice clips. It also converts from a sword-shaped gun to a full-on toy sword. Keep reading to see the photos.
Cartoon Network have made the first 7 episodes of Robots on Disguise Combiner Force available online starting now through June 6th. The Season kicks off with the two part King of the Hill episode. These are FULL episodes that may or may not be available in other countries. Hasbro recently said they would be doing more online streaming of their shows, and here we are. Read on for more details.
The "TF Factory" Weibo account has posted some new material today, like the Trypticon box image we showed you earlier
. But there's something even better to share now: The prototype models for Titan Class Trypticon. These have been displayed in a very limited fashion at events like Toy Fair, though we're not sure if photos of them have gotten out before now. The nature of both of these has been described previously, which is good, since one of them especially might be a bit of a head-scratcher otherwise. Keep reading to see them and learn more!
Valvoline has just posted a new commerical touting their status as the official synthetic motor oil of Transformers: The Last Knight.
In it, a series of people thank the Autobots - surprisingly earnestly and straight-faced for the most part - for the work they've done defending Earth. (Which is a better reception than we expect them to get within the film, honestly.) No mention or showing of Valvotron in the ad, but you can see it after the jump all the same.
From Weibo with thanks to Unicron.com for bringing it to our attention, we have a photo of Titans Return Trypticon's box! User '' has posted what we believe to be the first image of the Titan Class figure's final package design. If samples (or possibly "samples") are beginning to make their way to Asia, hopefully this means that we'll have an opportunity to get our hands on the giant figure in the next few months. Keep reading to see the image!
The website Box Office Pro has posted its analysis of the impending Transformers: The Last Knight
. It's an interesting read, a fairly level-headed look at the internal and external forces that could determine whether TF5 is a success, and how much
of one. Our takeaway: ...there's another Planet of the Apes
film coming out in July? Why?
Anyway, click through for the full rundown.
Weibo user NOTRAB has shared another update of photos featuring the just-revealed MPM-4 Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This batch focuses on answering one of the most important questions: How big is it? Particularly how tall compared to Revenge of The Fallen Leader Class Optimus, long considered to be a high point in engineering this design. At the same time, these side by side comparisons should help dispel any notion of this being a retool of that prior figure, as every visible part between them is very clearly different. The photos are mirrored below, click through and check it out.
The 2017 Hobbyfree Expo took place in China, and several notable third party groups attended to show off their projects. KFC revealed new figures based on Apeface and Snapdragon - Kingorilla and Kingzilla, respectively. Maketoys has a G1 MP-style Starscream. FansHobby was showing off a lot of things as usual, including a trailer for their Arch Enemy/Gunfighter II figures, plus there was a lot of updated shots and samples of previously revealed items from multiple other companies. We've collected Facebook photos from Omega Man and Genmon Photo Vault below, click through to have a look!
Following up on the pictures of Blitzwing and Ramhorn from earlier today, we now have some good looks at Octone, the latest renaming of Octane, previously known as Tankor. Ghani Madueno and Patrick Leonard Mayo have both shared nice photos of this brand new toy in the Cybertron Philippines Facebook group, giving an all-important overview of the remodeled jet mode, a close up of the new robot face, and a group shot of the three Decepticon Triplechangers all together in one scale finally. The photos are mirrored below, so go have a look!
Don't ask me why, but Hasbro and Takara Tomy keep trying to make small die-cast type cars... In 2003, the Japanese candy toy company Kabaya teamed up with Majorette of France to produce a one of series of die-cast Matchbox style cars for the Micron Legends series. The toys were packed on similar style Matchbox J-Cards that all featured an image of the Micron Legends (Densetsu) Convoy with the word CONVOY behind him, regardless of the car in side, with a roll of tart candies packed in.
Just in from TFW we have work that following the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee toys, a Barricade will be offered in a battle damaged edition as well. According to the report fans making a purchase of $1200 or more, will get one of these toys that are said to be limited to an edition of just 300 figures. Additionally, other items such a movie tickets, card-holder and plastic folders will be awarded for lower purchases.
Thanks agian to TF@Moon - This video contains cut & altered audio from the Transformers Generation One episode The Ultimate Doom Part 1. The audio is from an original cassette tape of session that took place when Dan Gilvezan was not present and so Wally Burr read his lines. The video ends with the full audio recording from the "human horde" session that would ultimate be spliced into place during final editing.
Xavier Basa was lucky enough to have been able to pick up the new Generations toys offered at the The Last Knight launch event in the Philippines, and he's shared some out of package photos of two of them so far on Twitter, and Talk Transformers on Facebook: Voyager Blitzwing, and Titan Master Ramhorn. Both are reused molds, Blitzwing sharing with Megatron, and Ramhorn being a retool of Shuffler from wave 4. Each mode of both toys is shown, plus Ramhorn's head mode on Leo Prime, and a side by side shot of Blitzwing with Astrotrain. We've mirrored the photos, keep reading to see them all!
Get ready to head back to the comic shops next Wednesday, because it's almost time for the newest issue of the current-best Transformers title, Till All Are One
. Coming from Newsarama we have the full length preview for issue 9, featuring an extended courtroom scene. Will we be in store for a full issue of Law & Order: Cybertron
? Guess we'll have to wait until next week to find out! Click through to see the preview pages.
Thanks to Weibo member NOTRAB, we have some in-hand images of the MPM-4 Optimus Prime Transformers Masterpiece figure that will be coming to the USA this Summer.
Here is a chance to get a closer look at what has changed from the Revenge of the Fallen (2009) Leader Class mold to this one. Read on to see more in the images below.
Hasbro Toy Shop has posted their listing for the new Rubik's Crew Optimus Prime figure! You may feel that the collectible display figure market has gotten a bit of a big head, with new lines PoPping up left and right. But Rubik's Crew gives an actual purpose to cuteified SD display figures: Optimus Prime's head is a fully functional puzzle whose body serves as a display stand. Keep reading to see the photos!
With Titans Return Wave 4 just beginning to filter through to US retailers, it's probably not the best time for another wave of figures to begin appearing elsewhere in the world. Well, too bad,
because Blitzwing and Octone were spotted at a Transformers: The Last Knight
event in Manila by Twitter user @neurowing along with Titan Master Ramhorn! Keep reading to see the photos.
