Transformers & Diaclone Concept Art Show Off Optimus Prime's Robot Base Mode, Carry Case City, Unused Metroplex, More!

Tformers - 19 September, 2017 - 06:32
Twitter user @miiakira2017 has posted some concept art from the early days of Transformers! How early, you may ask? In some cases, Diaclone early! The images are primarily of an early version of Metroplex who was of a much stockier, more Grandus-like build in this stage of development. Also, a base mode for Optimus Prime/Battle Convoy's cab, and an Autobot symbol carry case that would have turned into a base of its own! Keep reading to see the images!

Toys R Us Moves Forward With Bankruptcy, But The End Isn't Here Yet

Tformers - 18 September, 2017 - 18:29
Two weeks ago we brought you news of Toys R Us looking at options to address debts coming due at the start of the new year. Today we have a followup, as Bloomberg reports the retailer is planning to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This sounds alarming, but is not an automatic death sentence, and this act could allow the toy store to continue operations for several years - ideally enough to get out from under its debts. Reportedly some suppliers had pre-emptively reduced shipments to Toys R Us, but at last word, Hasbro was maintaining normal business, so Transformers availability should continue as usual for the time being.

FansToys FT-08 Grinder Dino Head Replacement Video Review

Tformers - 17 September, 2017 - 19:29
One more quick review from diecast on RFC Reviews tonight! FansToys recently brought out a replacement head option for their unofficial Masterpiece-style Grimlock, Grinder. This new head is modeled more closely after the look of the dinosaur mode in the G1 cartoon, giving an easy modification option for owners more inclined to that appearance. How easy? Well, diecast manages it in the space of about six minutes, and still has time for several off-color jokes in the process! Wow! Check out the video in the post below.

Prime 1 Studios Shows Off New Beast Wars Megatron Statue In Full Color

Tformers - 14 September, 2017 - 16:51
Though I cannot speak for all of us here at TFormers, I am myself not a statue person. But this certainly makes me think twice. Prime 1 Studios has posted to Facebook showing their stunningly beautiful statue depicting Megatron as he appeared (more or less) in the first season of Beast Wars. The dino parts are a fair bit more detailed and "realistic" but otherwise this is a love letter to the original cartoon model. About the only fault I might find is the dismembered Dinobot on the base. The price for this is $1149, or $1199 for the exclusive version with the extra face option.

Transformers The Last Knight Concept Art Shows Early Set Piece Scene Design

Tformers - 14 September, 2017 - 16:37
As part of the effort to promote the home video release of The Last Knight, Collider has been provided several pieces of concept art for the movie, depicting the ideas that would become major scenes of the movie. Most ended up staying very close to these depictions, while one or two may have been lost to the cutting room floor, or undergone more significant alterations before going to film. We have copies mirrored, but check out the original article link farther down for full resolution - some of them hit about 5000 pixels!

Tformers - 14 September, 2017 - 16:33
Paramount is running a tournament bracket right now to let fans decide who the top Bot (or Con) is among the movie series cast. A special website is running right now allowing visitors to vote on contestants from both factions, the ultimate winner from each will go head to head. Sadly as of time of writing, Cogman has already lost out of the running, rendering the Autobot side largely meaningless. But - there's still a chance to help Nitro Zeus advance past the first round!

Power of the Primes Leader Class Optimus Prime - Comparison To Masterpiece MP-10

Tformers - 14 September, 2017 - 07:10
A Weibo source has posted some new in-hand images of Power of the Primes Leader class Optimus Prime. And perhaps most interestingly, they stand it up next to Masterpiece MP-10 Prime... and it doesn't fare all that badly! Certainly MP-10 has an edge since it doesn't need to integrate its trailer into its body, but in terms of style and scale they compare pretty respectably. Keep reading to see the images!
