Transformers 3 Ferrari is Mirage

This of course makes all sorts of stupid sense. >:-(

You have got to be kidding me! The Ferrari is Mirage, NOT HOT ROD!  What a huge let down.  Alright, well let’s see some nice toys at least.  Check out the robot mode below.

Wow! Real characters

According to a post at TFW2005.com, Hasbro has announced a new series geared towards kids: Transformers Rescue Bots. The playskool kids Transformers are finally getting their own fiction and mainstream characters assigned to them, as indicated by this logo featuring some familiar faces like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. It looks like this will be an Autobot-only series, which is a first in the franchise. Check out the post to see more renders of potential toys for the line.

Hasbro Generations 3.0 Thundercracker lives (again) – now with proof!

Generation 1 Thundercracker cartoon

Thundercracker responds just like a thousand other Transfans - horrifying gasp as a valuable piece of himself crumbles to the floor like so many shattered dreams.

FOR REALS THIS TIME!

Who knew that my most embarrassingly falsified post has turned out to be as true as the testimony of OJ Simpson!?  TFW2005.com has reported a preorder on Big Bad Toy Store for Generations 3.0 Thundercracker.

Read it and weep boys.

So does time really heal all wounds?  It’s hard to say, the 2007 Botcon Seeker scars run deep… soooo deep.  I guess it’s time to give up collecting in general, huh guys?  Guys? Hello?  Is anyone there?  Where’d you all go!?!?!?

More War for Cybertron characters – Slipstream, Arcee, Zeta Prime, Cliffjumper, Brawl

War for Cybertron Autobots

High Moon Studios had a press event recently that many of the longest-standing Transformers sites were invited to. On display was some of the production art for the game and it is incredible! Check out posts about this at Seibertron and TFW2005.

From what I can see, we get a glimpse at a ton of the environments and most importantly, the characters themselves!

It has been recently revealed that the chracter I suspected to be Onslaught was actually Brawl.  That’s great because the chracter looks very convincingly to be that ‘other’ Combaticon.

Of particular interest to me is the female-looking jet Decepticon on the High Moon’s Decepticon roster board.  If you ask me, this looks like a dead-ringer for a War For Cybertron version of Animated’s Slipstream!  What a cool character to bring in!  Female seekers have been a part of fan fiction since it started and now it’s becoming canon.

Speaking of she-bots, it looks like the autobots’ femme fatale Arcee is on hand to do some damage.  We also see a little red bot in the forme of Cliffjumper.

And finally, we get a good look at Zeta Prime.  He has a likeness to IDW’s Sentinel Prime, but now that Sentinel has been re-cast a pompous bootlicker in Animated, it appears the Prime previous to Optimus has been ret-conned to be Zetz Prime.  I can deal with change like that.

This game is going to be epic!  I hope you have your pre-order in… I still need to do it!   I’m voting Shockwave this year!
