Our thanks once again go out to Pete Brown for sending us a further update on the Toys R Us Transfomers situation. In case you have not been keeping up with the recent turn of events, on the 3rd May we reported that TRU UK have had Transformers Generations Voyager Class figures listed within their computer system since Feb though the toys had not hit the shelves. We followed that up on Saturday 4th May with the next piece of news via Pete which confirmed that Generations Metroplex will be released within the UK as a Toys R Us exclusive later in the year. Well as promised Pete has sent us further word on the current situation.
Having spoken once again to the manager at his local Toys R Us Pete was informed that the Toys R Us UK Head Office has actually been in touch with Hasbro UK to find out what has happened to these TRU exclusive figures. The word is that there has been a hold up at Hasbro UKs end which is why the figures have not shipped to UK retail but no specific explanation has been given. The good news is that the Voyager Class figures are now due to hit the TRUs in mid-July with the rest of the deluxes and Metroplex being released shortly after. No specific street date is available for those figures so shortly after could, potentially, be anything from 1 to 4 months.
Stay with us as we will bring you the very latest updates as we get them on this story
Our thanks once again go out to Pete Brown who has spoken once again to the manager at his local Toys R Us regarding their Transformers listings and following on from yesterday nights news we can now reveal that Transformers Generations Metroplex is set for a UK release as a Toys R Us exclusive later in the year!! Yes, you read that right, the big man is coming to UK high streets!
Pete also let us know there are two assortments of Dexlues and more legends class figures also listed within the Toys R Us computers More news. Just been on phone to manager at toys r us. Titan class metroplex is in their computer as well as two assortment of deluxe and more legends class. Again all tru exclusives. More info to follow on Tuesday hopefully all as TRU exclusives!! Who will they be? Well stay with us as Pete hopes to be able to bring us all further updates on Tuesday.
No street date is currently known for Metroplex, though he is due out in August within the US and the fact that he is already listed does suggest that the UK should not be too far behind.
Our thanks go to Pete Brown for letting us know that he spoke with the manager of Toys R Us Poole here within the UK earlier today, enquiring about the Transformers Fall of Cybertron Generations Voyager Class figures and to his surprise, the manager checked the computer and found that there were Voyager class figures from the Generations line being released within the UK as Toys R Us exclusives!! The second piece of information that he was given, was that the figures have a shelf date of February 2013, as in 3 months ago! Pete was told that the manager believes the figures have "just been held up" but Toys R Us do not know whether they are the FoC figures (which is most likely the case) or whether they are the Asian exclusives.
Pete has promised to update us if he hears more, so we will keep you all updated on this story.
Autobase Aichi have posted over 50 images of the Transformers Go! event which has taken place today at the Hiroshi Shinagawa Prince Hotel. The event featured a toy display covering the Cybertron / Autobot leaders from the original Convoy (Optimus Prime) through to Transformers Go! (Beast Hunters) Optimus Prime. Also shown at the event were the Alternity GT-R Convoy and Star Saber figures, leaflets promoting these two toys along with Fortress Maximus and Megatron from the same line and a GT-R Satefy Prime was also in attendance, or at least a cosplay.
You can view the images over on Autobase Aichi, on their Facebook page as well as mirrored after the jump
Deadline reports that actor Kelsey Grammer has signed on to be the main human villain in Transformers 4.
"Kelsey Grammer is embracing his inner bad guy. After his Golden Globe turn as the ruthless politician in Boss, Grammer has just landed the key villain role in Michael Bay‘s next Transformers film, which stars Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci. I’m told that Grammer will play Harold Attinger, a counter intelligence guy."
The news has split fans with some deciding to docus focus on the term key villain suggest that it means even less screen-time for giant robots, where as in truth nothing it is known about the storyline to justify these fears.
Hydra, who currently works for Part One Ltd / e-Hobby, has posted some information regarding Transformers Go! over on The Allspark taken from the just released magazine information on the upcoming straight-to-dvd animated series.
"Well, looks like the information is legitimately out...
The magazine spread for Go! said that Optimus and co. had sealed Predaking [Dragotron] away inside the Earth using the artfact known as the "Legendisk,"
and left Earth to hunt down other Predacons who had spread throughout the galaxy. They entrusted the duty of hunting down the scattering of Predacons still on Earth to a team of six Autobots...
In that sense, it takes place after BH, but whether it will link up smoothly is anyone's guess.
Basically, the extent to swhich this mirrors Battlestars>OpCom is uncanny. Elite team of powerful Autobots, including Optimus Prime (and BH Op himself is very Star Convoy-ish already) leave Earth to do battle in space. Earth is left in the hands of small team of freely combining Autobots.
Coincidence? Almost certainly.
GameWatch have published more information on the upcoming Japanese exclusive Transformers Anime series Transformers Go! According to the article the series must appeal to big business and will NOT be a Television series, as was previously expected, but will be released as a DVD by Shogakukan in TV-Boy and Kodansha in TV magazine. The article confirms that the 3-part combiner will be able to merge to form three different robots. Metroplex was also shown during the event and was measured at 58cms
More information is expected to be released on the 24th and 25th April when Takara-Tomy group hold their "summer business meetings".
Thanks to Autobase Aichi for the news
