NEWS

00:11:04 First up we have HD shots of this weeks Hong Kong Toys And Games Fair 2018. The star was undoubtedly was MPM-06 Ironhide.

 We have clear and nice shots of the presentation of the new Autobot Weapon specialist Masterpiece figure. Some of the shots give us a clear look at the back of the toy and the way it manages the kibble. Of course, we have close-ups of the figure in both modes and standing next to his partner MPM-03 Bumblebee.
As an extra bonus, we have extra images of the previously announced MPM-05 Barricade.

00:14:44 Machinima’s Titans return series ending Discussion.

 

00:24:35 Next we have the full voice cast of Machinima’s Transformers: Power Of The Prime animated webseries. The list now includes the characters voiced by the artists.
Regarding the new talent who joined the already star-studded cast:
Mark Hamill – Megatronus
Ron Perlman – Optimus Primal
Jaime King – Solus Prime
Gregg Berger – Grimlock/Volcanicus
Nuufolau Joel “Samoa Joe” Seanoa – Predaking
Mikey Way – Snarl

Rest of cast on weblink

00:28:07 We have an in-hand image of all five Dinobots from Power of the Primes merged into their mighty Volcanicus form. We’ve seen a few shots of the combination at conventions, but this image is the first one we’re aware of in the wild using the toys we’ll all soon be picking up from store shelves. Note that the transformation on the individual figures is not 100% spot on – Slag’s arms for example are not tabbed in here – so the final article may look a little tidier.

00:31:57 Finally images have surfaced and we now have a better look at Studio Series Voyager Class Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen Megatron. Previously, we saw only a partially concealed teaser of this figure, but now we are treated to its full glory.
This Voyager Class toy is based on the Decepticon tyrant’s appearance on the second movie of the Live Action Movie Series by director Michael Bay. As we learned previously, this new toy comes with a cardboard background depicting ‘Forest Fight’; series’ most beloved action sequence.

Other news

00:39:45 We have our first look at the packaging of Zeta Toys take on the classic G1 Aerialbot Fireflight. ZB-01 Fly Fire is part of Zeta Toys Kronos (Superion/Aerialbots) together with ZB-02 Airstrike (G1 Air Raid) and ZB-03 Silver Arrow (G1 Silverbolt).  The back of the packaging is part of a nice Superion art that you can complete with the boxes of the rest of the Aerialbots. The new images let us see the great detail and style of Fly Fire / Fireflight in some awesome dynamic poses and the well integrated jet mode. Some images let us see the way Fly Fire works as Superion’s arm creating a very original and solid elbow.

00:43:37 Staying with Zeta Toys, we have new Zeta Toys Armageddon (Masterpiece-styled Bruticus) Color Prototype Images.
This massive Combiner, designed to go with your Masterpiece collection, is supposed to be around 50 cm. tall and we can see the nice details and proportions Zeta Toys worked on this release. While this is a color prototype, the images indicate they are not the final colors, so we could expect some changes in the future.
Three of the components have already been released: ZA-01 Take Off (Blast Off). Zeta A-02 Whirlblade (Vortex) and Zeta A-04 Uproar (Brawl) with the next figures upcoming in the next months.

00:46:55 3P company Iron Warrior is bringing a full articulated non-transformable rendition of TFP Optimus Prime and, from what we can see from the new images, it is a totally cartoon accurate version which we are sure will please many TFP fans. The figure will feature interchangeable faces (with mouth or face plate), articulated fingers, double regular swords and the iconic and powerful Star Saber sword from the show

00:51:28 Iron Warrior have also shown off their rendition of Movie Brawl. Once again a non-transforming figure, but still packed with plenty of detail and accessories.

00:12:10 Toys Alliance are teasing the third entry into their Mega Action Series. Following on from their Optimus Prime and Megatron figures (the latter set to be released in about a month), Toys Alliance will be taking on Soundwave! Details are sparse so far as all that has been released is an image showing the figure in silhouette with the caption “MAS-03?”, but Soundwave’s silhouette is distinctive enough to be recognizable. – around 18 inches – and to also feature light up eyes.

00:21:40 Thanks to weibo user tf-factory, we have our first look at the highly-anticipated wave 2 deluxes from the new Power of the Primes line! The wave features quite the assortment with Snarl, Sludge, Blackwing, Moonracer, and Rippersnapper. Not only does this wave get collectors started on their Terrorcons and G1 fembots, but it will also complete the Dinobot limbs and Volcanicus with the nearing release of Grimlock! Dreadwind will also be united with his counterpart so fans can form the mighty Dreadwing!

In addition to these figures, we also have our first in-package look at Grimlock from the upcoming Authentics line, one that seems to be similar to the Cyber Battalion line.

Finally in full color, Pluto is Planet X’s tackling of the beefy Fall of Cybertron Megatron design that was sadly overlooked in the game’s toy line.

Bruno wouldnt mind seeing a whole new bot line meaning new type of bots with new names a proper g2 series were matrix of leadership been passed down from rodimus and chosen a different prime thats been born and galvatron defeated but there is a twist. Something like that. Thats whats on my mind as since tr prime i never like the rest and optimus and megatron even bumble bee bern played out too much

 

01:09:58 NEW ACQUISITIONS  

Brad: nil

00:47:23 Masterpiece Dinobot New Images From Figure Oh Magazine #238, Via Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook we have high resolution scans of pages that bring us some new images of Masterpiece Dinobot.
The first scan shows the full colored Masterpiece figure in two great group shots next to Masterpiece Optimus Primal and Cheetor, and Generations/Legends Rattrap and Rhinox in both robot and beast mode. We can get a great idea of the size of Dinobot who proves to be the tallest and biggest Beast Wars Masterpiece to date.
The second scan gives us nice shot of the color, details and poses of the Maximal warrior in both modes. Gimmicks like the rotating eyes in dino mode are also shown next to the display base and one of most expected accessories of Dinobot: The famous Golden Disc.

In this episode we’ll be talking about

NEWS

00:08:17 Titans Return releases with episode 1 and 2, with starscream reborn, a nice voice over summing up Combiner Wars and Optimus Prime leaving again. Rodimus hands over the matrix and reverts back to hot rod and the old battle station called trypticon is rebuilt. So what are our thoughts?

Power of the Primes figures appearing  at retail in the US this week.

[image]

 

00:44:25 It turns out that the completionists are going to HATE this line, because each figure has TWELVE variants of cards in their box, each one describing how a different Prime affects and powers up that figure.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/14/power-primes-pack-collector-card-variant-information-12-variants-per-figure-353551

 

00:51:50 Meanwhile, it does seem like the power of the primes actually refers to the impressive ability of the figures to remain upright with all this shit attached to them.

https://twitter.com/JM77/status/930218271403524096?s=09

 

00:53:12 We saw some images and hints at a new movie Collector's series where hasbro are re releasing fan favourite bots from the first five films with more collector based engineering and look. We now have a reveal via Facebook (taiwan TFCC) of a new Deluxe age of extinction stinger. Also visible in the image is the new leader class black out and voyager ratchet figures.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/11/transformers-movie-series-deluxe-stinger-revealed-353428?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

 

Maybe this is related? Details are emerging of a new Studio Series movie range for 2018.

00:56:08 We've seen blurry images but now Takara have released production shots of the new movie Masterpiece MPM-05. Barricade. It transforms in 40 steps, has diecast pieces and 30 points of articulation.

01:03:56 Takara Tomy has revealed colour figure shots of MP-41 Masterpiece Dinobot in all his glory. The $245 USD price tag appears to be true and online retail has put up pre orders of accordingly. So who's buying it?

Scale image:

 

01:11:55 It appears Takara might be about to make Brad faint with joy, as one of their designers have an interview for the Generations 2018 book we recently reported on, stating that their eventual goal for Masterpiece Beast Wars figures is Megatron.

Other news

01:16:35 We all love the animated figures and although it was discussed on Transformers Legends this week we thought we'd take a look at this older piece of news also.

Here we have A Plus Toys Animated Dirt Boss in Painted Prototype with Devastator Images

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/10/10/plus-toys-animated-dirt-boss-painted-prototype-devastator-images-351827?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

01:17:58 Joining the 3p Combiner fight Fans Toys has announced FT-30 Ethereaon (Masterpiece Scale Aerialbots/Superion) with prototype images of thier silver bolt figure.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/13/fans-toys-ft-30-ethereaon-masterpiece-scale-aerialbotssuperion-353519?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

Movie news

01:21:58 Finally in movie news, it appears the Bumblebee movie might be abandoning it's Generations name and just going out as Bumblebee The Movie

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/12/bumblebee-movie-news-roundup-wrap-353441

http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/2018-bumblebee-movie-name-logo-and-bumblebees-new-look-revealed-at-wrap-up-party/40004/

After 70 days Principal photography on the bumblebee movie has wrapped. News for the film will probably be light until February where we might possibly get a look at the new toyline, but there's probably not going to be a super bowl trailer as universal have mission impossible 6 and cloverfield 3 to promote.

What’s your feeling on Power of the Primes?

 

00:34:14 Takara Masterpiece News

Takara MP-41 Masterpiece Dinobot has hit retail pre orders this week upsetting fans with an expected 28,000 yen price tag which is about $245 USD. One local retailer has it up for $269 so Dinobot is looking to be the most expensive MP beastwars figure, and in the MP10 area price-wise. So it's now got Collectors wondering the figures scale, or accessory count that would make the figure more expensive than Megatron.

https://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/new-info-on-features-for-transformers-masterpiece-mp41-dinobot/39969/

 

How much is too much for a Masterpiece figure?

 

00:39:38 Blind bagged toys fans are rejoicing this week at the news that Kid Robot, already known to Transformers fans for their vinyl figures, are bringing out a new series of blind-bagged figures based on IDW’s Transformers vs GI Joe comic series.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/03/transformers-vs-g-joe-collection-kidrobot-hasbro-353094

 

00:42:19 Paramount has been relying on Chinese investment from a company called HuaHua to finance a lot of their recent movies. That deal is now over, sources say, citing poor returns on investment for recent pictures including Transformers: The Last Knight.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/09/paramount-pictures-loses-huahua-media-film-financing-deal-353298

 

Other news

00:47:13 A new statue manufacturer has popped up in China called Titanium Alloy.  Their first statue is a Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime measuring 30 inches tall. Unsure if it's licences yet as there's no logos on it but we know hasbro usually allow statue makers to make their products.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/09/titanium-alloy-war-within-optimus-prime-statue-revealed-353283?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

00:53:42 Unique Toys has shown off its new Bruticus Combiner at SGC 2017. (Image 15 or 21)

This figure was to be Toyworld’s Bruticus but the designers jumped ship and took their designs with them, so now for unique toys to not have to pay for engineering and design the bots are approx $60 each.

More of a parts former since thighs aren't part of onslaughts transformation.

00:15:43 Machinima Titans Return

The new Titans Return Machinima series is almost here - cower in fear, humans! If you didn’t really like their Combiner Wars series then we don’t think Machinima cares.

 

They’ve released a new poster.

And it turns out Combiner Wars (which we’ve been saying can’t be seen anywhere) has reappeared on Hasbro’s YouTube channel.

Two items this week on POTP with a look at Hasbro press images for Starscream coming up. Before we get into that though, we also saw news this week that preorders for the first wave are live and stock is expected to ship in December.

01:21:27 Chris - talk a bit about your collection and collecting habits

 

01:36:39 TCCA BUSINESS

Australian Transformers Weekly is produced by Transformers Collectors Club Australia.

TCCA is run by volunteers who donate their time and money to make the club better for everyone. Our goal is to connect Transformers fans around the country and we do it by engaging the collecting community.

This means attending and exhibiting at conventions and events around the country, and that costs money.

If you’re enjoying this podcast, we hope you’ll consider becoming a paid member of Transformers Collectors Club Australia.

Yearly memberships cost just 5 dollars and help support club activities at conventions big and small around the country, from Supanova and Oz Comic Con in capital cities to smaller local gatherings.

To join us as a paid member, go to transformerscca.com.

 

Christmas Donation Drive

  • Annual tradition for the club, it’s like a Christmas bonanza!
  • Prizes include Masterpiece Megatron, Shockwave and Sunstreaker, third party figures like War Dog Veteran edition, a TFcon exclusive Mirage, G1 character posters and a whole lot more!
  • It’s a lucky draw. Tickets cost just $5 and you can buy as many tickets as you like.
  • Like membership, your ticket purchase helps support the club. We use the money to pay for figures for other giveaways, attending conventions and supporting other club activities like birthday and christmas gatherings around the country.
