it's really really easy to modify the swords so that they are coming out of this arms.. the only problem is, you have to unscrew the forearm for when you want to transform him.. all you have to do is unscrew the forearm, take the swords out, cut off most of the piece that connects the sword to t... read more

that would be really sweet if he had his two swords on his arms while he had that gun on his arm

Hasbro should have made smaller, pop-out swords that are part of the forearms. It would have been more movie accurate and would function better as a gimmick.

I have found a pose I'm perfectly happy with that allows his arms to extend down most of the way and the swords to fold up. So it doesn't bother me so much anymore. But yes, that is probably the biggest design flaw with this guy.

Swords are cool but they dont work well me thinks. I guess if his shoulder plates are positioned out of the way sometimes .. it works on occasion but did they really have to make them permentally attached?

A lot of us think we do see the swords there still. We won't know for certain until some nicer pictures get released of the production toy, but I wouldn't write off the swords yet.

Yeah, I think that's it. Adult collectors in the West don't have as much influence as they'd like to think. Toys are still "for kids" here, while in Japan they'll promote a Mazinger Chogokin with a commercial featuring a Japanese businessman remembering his Mazinger toy ... read more

Thanks for the offer. So far I'm pretty happy with how leader Prime's head looks. It's more a case of I might swap that head with Buster Prime's because of the mouth guard. Or I might not. depends how much I do or don't like Prime's mouth when I see it up close (not a bi... read more

More Age of Extinction News
Olivus Prime of the TFW2005 Forums was able to sit down with Mark Ryan recently and talk Transformers movies. Ryan is the voice behind Revenge of the Fallen's Jetfire and Age of Extinction's Lockdown, and spoke of his inspiration for Jetfire, the amount of his own acting that was put into Lockdown... and perhaps most interestingly, a hint at the direction of Transformers 5 and the Transformers Cinematic Universe at large. Read on to see what he had to say!
Get your views in on the Transformers movies listed on Netflix as they will be removed from the listing at the end of September. Transformers: Age of Extinction and a number of other films such as the Hunger Games, World War Z that are part of the Epix distribution deal, have not been renewed at this time. We've been here before, where the deal was done only to be re-done at the zero-hour. Read on to see the quote from Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix.
Empire Online has posted a ranking of the 100 greatest characters to feature in a movie, as selected by their readership. And Optimus Prime managed to make the list! Just barely avoiding falling in to dead last place, Optimus Prime ranks 98 out of 100. We're not entirely sure on what criteria people made their choices, but the bullet points on Empire's list might have you believe it's due to Optimus riding a dinosaur. We can but wonder if he wouldn't have ranked higher had he not murdered Frasier a short time later. Click through to get a link to the full list.
Following the long slow run up to Transformers 5 and the Cinematic Universe. We have some new insights from Daredevil writer Steven Dekinght. He's been part of the writers room sessions and gives us his take how things are unfolding. Paramount are "pulling all the stops" including a visit from Steven Spielberg himself. While no word on what the new Transformers 5 movie being worked on now by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner, we do get a sense the new blood may actually produce a movie a story in it. Read on for more.
If you like busts and statues, then you're in business! Prime 1 Studios had pieces on display from Age of Extinction at Wonderfest this weekend. Busts of Optimus Prime and Galvatron, replicating the heads and upper bodies of the characters in painstaking detail, plus a full statue of Lockdown with one of his "hunting dogs". It's probably the best merchandise representation of Lockdown that will ever exist, and the price tag is sure to reflect that! Click through to check them out.
