Transformers Toy News

Recently there was a listing found for a Rattrap Generations figure within the Wal*Mart computer system which led fans into believing that there is a Rattrap figure in the works, something the fan community was speculating about after James Roberts name-dropped the character when talking about the comic books. Well over last weekend at Roll Out Roll Call 2013 it was confirmed that designs have been produced for a Generations Rattrap figure as well as a possibly a fourth Beast Wars character.  No details were given on who that additional character could be; it was more deduced from the wording that was used rather than being directly stated; though the Rattrap design is said to be based on original season one form, much like the comic art has shown, rather than the TransMetal figure.  Whilst nothing was shown since the Generations Rhinox figure is turning out to be be very close to the concept design (which was shown), this should give everyone hope that the final Rattrap figure should also look close to his design which is said to be close to the animation model.  It was mentioned at the show that the figure was to be revealed at NYCC though from the reports we have read online it appears that this wasn't the case.

No word on when the figure is expected to hit, but it is coming.

Transformers Toy News

Both Big Bad Toy Store and RobotKingdom have posted new listings for a re-issue of the TakaraTomy Transformers Hybrid Style Convoy Black Edition (THS Convoy). The figure was originally released as an e-Hobby exclusive.  The re-issue of this figure is completely out of left-field considering only three THS figures were produced, Convoy, Galaxy Convoy and the Black Version of Convoy.  We own all three figures and think that they are fantastic little "Masterpiece-styled" figures, though because the Black version was also release with parts to convert the original convoy into a Generation 2 version, does this mean that the regular release will also be finding a re-issue? Time will tell.

Transformers Rumours

eToys Japan and various over Asian retailers are reporting via their websites and Facebook that TakaraTomy are going to be releasing a brand new Optimus Prime figure as apart of the Transformers Go! toy line number G-26 and released in Jan 2014.  The report, which can be seen below, states that Prime will be a triple changer transforming from Robot to Dragon to train and will also combine with both Kenzan and Gekisomaru.

Transformers Go! G26 Optimus EX Prime by Takara Tomy. This is a Japan original design that combines with G01 Kenzan and G05 Gekisoumaru together. On its own it is a triple changer that transformers from robot to train to a Dragon. With light and sound gimmick... Pre-order releasing in Jan 2014.

The listing seems a little odd as, thus far, there has been no clue to Optimus Prime taking any action within the Transformers Go! series, other than brief appearances within the first four parts (Samurai 1-3 and Shinobi 1), so treat this as a rumour for now as no pictures are currently available and there has been no official confirmation for a toy who will supposedly be released in just a few months.

Transformers Movie News

ShootForTheEdit.com admin Nelson has posted some information and images from his trip to the Chicago set for Transformers: Age of Extinction. Below you will find a quote of what "Nelson" had to say

As some of you know, I visited the TF4 set in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. I won't bore you with the details, but here are some things I noticed and discovered.

Michael has a totally new crew for this movie (aside from the DP & the AD). Stunt people & drivers, SFX crew, camera crew, and grips. I guess it goes with the whole "fresh" feel and look of TF4.

...

The truck company for Optimus Prime in TF 1-2-3 never wanted anything to do with the movie franchise. Before filming the first TF movie, the production crew approach the truck company to see if they could lend them 2 trucks. They said no. The producers then found 2 old rusty 1995 models that barely worked and gave them a paint job that got the job done with a very tight budget for chrome and stuff. This time around, Western Star (a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America) gave them 2 new trucks. No questions asked.

Optimus Prime was painted by West Coast Customs.

...

There are 2 of every car, truck, and vehicle in this production (one for back up).

  • 1 Bugatti is owned by a private owner. The other is a loaner from Bugatti.
  • 1 Lamborghini Aventador was purchased by the studio. The other was purchased by Bay (the one with the interior shots in the movie).
  • 1 vintage 1967 Camaro SS (BumbleBee) is owned by the studio, the other by Bay.
  • Optimus and BumbleBee GGI renders are still being tweaked. Optimus looks grand and BB looks sleek, refined and badass.

...

Bay showed me a 5 min sizzle reel. It was f-ing amazing. After I saw it, he asked me "Kinda boring eh?" I think with all the pressure he's got, deprecating himself is his idea of humor. It also probably makes him strive more towards creating a kick-ass movie.

...

In the picture above you can see BumbleBee's head (paper weight) made of car parts (gears and stuff).

All the catering trucks have California license plates, I wonder why? I wonder if the local catering companies got tossed because of the leaked call sheet? Some how the food is better this time around (IMO).

You can view the original post along with the images over on ShootForTheEdit.com as well as after the jump along with all of the other official images.

Transformers Movie News

Nelson, the Site Admin of Michael Bay's Shoot For The Edit website, has posted some new info on the Transformers: Age Of Extinction including confirmation that the "bearded robot" who's face was seen on a pole, will be Hound.

"I like how Bumblebee looks like in robot form this time around. He looks badass and sleek.

The Stingray is one of my favorite looking robots.

So is the Bugatti. Wait til you see this guy in action. He will blow your mind!!

And Hound reminds me of the bearded chubby fellow in Braveheart. He might take the cake when it comes to personality."

Transformers Rumours

Big Bad Toy Store, who recently had to eat humble-pie with their incorrect Reissue Super Fire Convoy toy are now spreading another rumour regarding Transformers Masterpiece.  The latest rumours, after the Bumblebee and Wheeljack ones from Big Bad Toys Store (still not confirmed by anyone) is that MP22 will be Ultra Magnus Perfect Edition.

Takara-Tomy's designers have spoken in the past about their hope to bring a proper Ultra Magnus toy into the Masterpiece Line, but they were not able to do so.

BBTS say

The based off the updated MP-10 Convoy mold and will at last come with an all new fully functional trailer that will combine with the Ultra Magnus cab for the ultimate display piece!

Like any annoucement form BBTS we take this with a pinch of salt and advise you not to pre-order and part with any cash yet.
