Transformers Convention News

Images from the 2012 Winter Wonderfestival have started to come in.  Since Tomy (TakaraTomy) are not in attendance it was thought that Transformers images would be thin on the ground. 

CMS Corphave filled the gap by showing of a resin prototype Ginrai and (a possible final version) Minerva, as well as an upcoming "Minerva Special Edition" figure based on the colors of Nightbeat (and the Minerva Night Beat special release in Japan.) Also shown off on the Minerva Special poster is an extra head based on Hi-Q from the Marvel Comics Transformers run that can be attached to the Gutto Kuru Ginrai's body.

TakaraTomy has tweeted a few additional images from the Asahikawa Winter Festival. In addition to the giant Optimus Prime snow sculpture there is also a sculpture of Transformers Prime Bumblebee to greet guest. We also see a coupled of illuminated images of the Optimus Prime sculpture.

Transformers Convention News

Jim Sorenson has updated his blog, Diciples of Boltax, with the news that he will be working on a new GI Joe Animation model book along with Bill Forster.  Transformers fans will know that Jim and Bill released two Transformers Ark books covering the animation art from the original Transformers series and Japanese Transformers series.

Jim has posted the following.

Yo Joe!  The time has come for much rejoicing and cavorting.  I can now officially announce what many of you have guessed... my next book is going to be an Ark-style book of G.I. Joe animation models, out this summer.

(Nice Snake Eyes model courtesy of a frequent contributor to the model book, Tim Finn of A Real American Book.)

It's going to be pretty spectacular.  For some reason I've been able to find WAY more material than I have for Transformers.  As the illustration to the right jokingly illustrates, I'm going to be taking a few thousand model sheets and condensing the very best and most interesting of them down into one volume of a few hundred pages. I'm really stoked at my first work in this new and glorious arena.  I've come across some amazingly cool rare stuff, plus most of what you'd expect for a book about the Sunbow animation models. I'm still looking for more material, too, so if you're a collector of such things drop me a line.  I'm especially interested in material from the movie and the commercials beyond, as well as incidental characters.

So you see, my Roll Out Roll Call appearance is doubly fortuitous!  I can show off some early sneak-peaks of the book there.  Definitely swing by if you're in the UK.

Now you know the significance of Jim and Bill's appearance at Roll Out Roll Call 2012, and as we all know Knowing is Half the Battle

Transformers Convention News

 

Transformers Collectors Club Pre-Orders are now online!

2012 Over-Run (AKA Runabout) TCC exclusive (1 pc)

Member Price - $54

Non-Member Price - $94

OVER-RUN® tries to pass himself off as a suave connoisseur of fine things. It’s not a façade he can really maintain for long, less because of his generally low intelligence and more because his interest in beautiful objects starts and ends with “blow them up!” His drive to seem sophisticated is in direct conflict with his enthusiastic love of explosions and action. The former is almost always on the losing side of that battle. He’s not interested in the DECEPTICONS’® plans for conquest; he’s just with them because of the greater opportunities for his kind of fun. He’s always on the move, looking to create a bigger fireball, a larger bomb crater, and generally cram every microsecond with action!

Over-Run is a Deluxe sized figure featured in the Wings Universe and is Runamuck’s demolition partner. Over-Run utilizes one of the extremely popular “Classics” molds and features an all-new head sculpt by Dan Khanna and Paul Brooks. The toy is packed in a convention style box with a foam insert for easy removal and display.

Non-membership price ($40 domestic) includes 6 bi-monthly full color magazines and 2012 Free membership incentive figure (ships Spring 2012).

2012 Shattered Glass Drift TCC exclusive (1 pc)

Member Price - $49

Non-Member Price - $89

Even amongst the villainous hordes of the Evil AUTOBOTS ®, DRIFT is considered the most brutal. Laws and morality have no stay with him, only money and profit. And occasionally thrills. He’d blast his own batch initiators if he were paid for the job. Or if he thought it might be fun. Typically given free rein by the AUTOBOT ® leader, OPTIMUS PRIME ®, to complete his objectives, DRIFT’S methods of taking out his targets are only limited by his imagination. In other words, they are almost boundless. The mercenary relishes dreaming of new ways of taking out his marks, and logging them when he reboots in the morning. Regardless of the elaborate traps he might set, he always ensures that he is there at the final move, with his finger on the trigger or his hand on the blade. ??

Drift is a Deluxe sized figure featured in the Shattered Glass Universe. This “Bot of Banter” utilizes one of the extremely popular “Classics” molds and comes with a selection of weapons. The toy is packed in a convention style box with a foam insert for easy removal and display

UPDATE: The Transformers Collectors Club store went down due to too many orders

Transformers Convention News

Roll Out Roll Call 2012 update: author of the Rahc Guide, James Kavanaugh Jr, will be attending for his first ever show in the UK. The R.A.H.C Guide is the best reference book covering all GI-Joe releases from 1997-2007. Signed copies are available for reservation though All The Cool Stuff which is strongly urged as a limited number may only be available over the weekend: http://www.allthecoolstuff.co.uk/ROLL-OUT-ROLL-CALL-Transformers--GI-Joe-2012-UK-Convention/Special-Guests__c-p-0-0-182-183.aspx

James "KuuKuuSon" Kavanaugh Jr. is the author of the R.A.H.C. Guide, printer of the Declassified newsletter and a contributor to the G.I. Joe Collectors Club and the Declassified Booth.
While KuuKuuSon is a member of many online G.I. Joe forums, he is more known for his "in person" approach to the community, co-founding two Ohio area collectors clubs and a regular attendee at the International Convention. A collector of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero action figures since their debut in 1982, KuuKuuSons paused in 1990 to pursue other avenues only to be drawn back in by his late discovery of the then cancelled Marvel Comic series in 1996; a move which inevitably led to his "no turning back" full-on collecting point in 2002.
 
KuuKuuSon utilized his graphic design skills produce a supplemental fullback card for the Collectors Club renewal figures that are given away free at conventions as well as design the official 2007 exclusive Sigma Six Red Ninja file card. It has also been stated that he put G.I. Joe costuming on the map. KuuKuuSon also collects Transformers Comics, Starscreams, World of Springfield and Masters of the Universe.
 
James is traveling from Dayton, OH U.S.A. to promote his new book R.A.H.C. A Guide to Second Generation O-Ring G.I. Joe Action Figures.

Transformers Convention News

Full Metal Hero's Stripe (or Minon to Transformers At The Moon members) has gotten his hands on the BotCon exclusive Hunt for the Decepticons Voyager Sea Spray repaint of Shattered Glass Otcopunch, and posted a pictorial review. Click here to view the rest of Stripe's images and read his review of the figure

Early warning for the review - Octopunch is my favourite Transformer and has been since I got my paws on him as a child, so expect some biased love for this toy.
I've wait 20+ years for a new Octopunch toy and whilst i'll openly admit that I wasn't blown away by this interpretation at first, having the toy in hand is perhaps the most excited i've been for a Transformer in years.

This is the third time we've seen this mold, and if you don't love it by now then you've likely already made up your mind about this figure. If you took the lunge on Seaspray and Deep Dive then you'll know what to expect and it really comes down to character and colour choice.

The colours on the toy are much better than early images suggested, and whilst the green of the hovercraft ring isn't what I would call 'Octopunch green', the use of blue, yellow and purple is really nice. Paint apps are decent, with only a few little missed bits here and there. One half of the crotch plate is missing the blue though. If you take the view that Shattered Glass figures can ignore traditional colours schemes, then the one chosen for Ock is perfectly acceptable and very cool in its own right.

I've grown especially fond of the head, and whilst I completely understand the calls for a new one, the blue breathing aparatus (like on the G1 pretender's chest) over the purple helmet really does have that Octopunch feel to it.

Transformation is smooth and easy (and yes I know I mistransformed the shoulder plates in some photos - I was too excited to have my Ock figure), and joints are reasonably tight. Overall the quality of the toy from a construction point of view is easily comparable to Seaspray and Deep Dive, and the firing missile launchers work fine.
My only real gripe is that the peg for the missile launcher is a bit too tight for him to hold them in his hand, although they fit on the forearm pegs just fine. The back plate where the deck of the hovercraft folds up is also a little finnicky at the bottom hinge and takes some effort to lock in correctly.

Octopunch is far from a must have for most fans, and anyone who already owns this mold has probably had their fix from it, but there is still something really special about him. Sure he's missing the tentacles, harpoon gun, crab chap and the pretender-ness of the G1 toy, but recent reimaginings over the past few years of Bludgeon, Skullgrin and Thunderwing have redecuated us in our expectations anyway. The little touches such as the tentacle decals on the chest, blue breathing mask and general coolness really sell the figure.

Dare I say - roll on a voyager sized Stranglehold?
