Transformers Interviews and Articles

TFW2005.com board members SydneyY and Masabon have posted a translation of an interview with TakaraTomy team producer Noriaki Maeda which was recently published within Figure King magazine.

The interview consists of five questions:

1. Firstly, looking back upon this year's Transformers series, what are your thoughts?
2. What were the popular items in 2011, or the product sold unexpectedly well?
3. What were the reactions to the MechTech weapon giveaways and MechTech campaigns?
4. Why did you resume "United" series at this point?

The intervie­w explain why Arcee was released in a blue colour scheme as part of Darkside Moon in Japan, which was basically as a teaser for her appearance in Transformers: Prime to prepare the Japanese audience in advance.  Being a motorcycle Transformer, she proved popular with Japanese children which was a bit of a surprise to the TakaraTomy staff

Transformers Interviews and Articles

Maz, who runs TF-1.com, has just published a new article on the Ceji Joustra Diaclone line.  The article, which is over 10,000 words and contains over 100 images, is the result of his 14 worth of research.

Rather than try to describe this article to you, I thought it would be best to let Maz himself elaborate on the piece.

"For the last month or so I've been putting together the biggest, most comprehensive and ambitious article I have ever written, numbering over 10,000 words and containing over 110 photos. It is the fruit of nearly 14 years of collecting and the incredible contributions of many generous, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and unique collectors throughout the world.

This one feels like my life's work, but I cannot take sole responsibility for it by any stretch as the credits will show just how much input others have had in shaping what I hope will be for the forseeable future, the definitive article on the conception, history, evolution and fate of the Ceji Joustra Diaclone toy line from Europe.


Ceji Joustra Diaclone Overview

Article includes:
  • Diaclone roots and inception
  • Joustra Diaclone comic cover scans
  • Pictures of all Joustra Diaclone toys found to date including never before seen world first Wave 2 pictures!
  • Magazine and print adverts for Joustra Diaclones
  • Dealer Catalogue scans from 1984 and 1985
  • Theories on unanswered questions and mysteries around the toy line since day 1
  • Eventual fate of the Joustra Diaclone line and what happened to the toys
  • Paul Vromen's incredible sidebar artwork for this article


As if that wasn't enough, it is absolutely a wonderful pleasure to introduce a brand new website dedicated entirely to the Ceji Joustra Diaclone toy line created by RpChristophe, a French collector, researcher, enthusiast and someone I consider a great friend:

JOUSTRA DIACLONE

Features include:
  • Full scans of all Joustra Diaclone comics found to date
  • Exploded packaging images for all Joustra Diaclone toys found to date
  • Bio of the Joustra Diaclone wave 1 artists Paul & Gaetan Brizzi
  • Available in French and English


Finally, the following articles on
TF-1.com have been updated to include new discoveries, better and new photographs and contributions and to reflect the findings since original posting:

(1)DIACLONE BLACK TRACKS


INCLUDING:
  • New packaged and loose images
(2)MILTON BRADLEY AND THE TRANSFORMERS RED TRACKS

INCLUDING:
  • Info and pics updated to reflect discoveries made by Mijo at 20thcenturytoycollector.com
(3)BLACK MEXICAN PROWL

INCLUDING:
  • New photos of packaged and loose Mexican Prowl
  • Updated copyright stamping variant information
  • Paul Vromen's Prowl artwork added to sidebar
(4)MEXICAN SMOKESCREEN "SMOKESTREAK"

INCLUDING:
  • New variant of Mexican Smokescreen "Smokestreak" found

I do very much hope you enjoy all of the work above even half as much as we have enjoyed putting the articles, pages and websites together. It's been a real labour of love and with all work like this it will undoubtedly be subject to change in the future when further discoveries are made. Mijo's work on MB Transformers is a great example of new research and perspective necessitating changes to my own work and website.

Feedback, as always, is welcome


Massive thanks to all involved, especially Christophe, Mijo, JB, Paul and all article contributors. It's been an unforgettable joy to work with you all, and get to know you all.


All the best

Maz

Transformers Interviews and Articles

e-Hobby have posted a new article in the e-Hobby Magazine Transformers Museum section about the e-HOBBY Exclusive City Commander Galvatron II figure.  The article, which is available in English as well as Japanese, thanks to long time Transformers fan and e-Hobby employee Hydra discusses the figure as well as his secret 5th phrase.

The figure is one of the few e-Hobby toys we do not currently own, we did but we sold him on right away before we could photograph him, but you can still use this site to compare the toy to the original Galvatron, a testshot of the G1 toy (with different crown) and the anime coloured version.

Drillnuts - Drillnuts is another member of the Insectrons and was a toy that we purchased whilst at Auto Assembly 2011, so we actually owned his character model before we owned the toy.
