With the support of the recently released Transformers film, well-known YouTube series Man at Arms has replicated another famous weapon from nerd culture. This time, Transformers gets the spotlight with a recreation of Optimus Prime’s sword from Age of Extinction and The Last Knight! The team of blacksmiths go all out as they forge a super-accurate, oversized Decepticon slayer in this 24-minute expository video which you can check out below!
Via their Facebook page, Imaginarium Art has shared a closer look at their upcoming statue of Rodimus Prime! The statue is currently in the grey prototype stage, but looks very sharp, drawing inspiration from G1, IDW, and other incarnations.
No other info on the statue has been released at this time, but stay tuned to TFW2005 for more pics as well as release dates and pricing as this next project progresses!
The Space Ape devs have dropped by once again with their upcoming character update for the game, featuring two new additions. The Autobots will be acquiring Drift, the Decepticon-turned-Autobot soldier/swordsman who is sporting his original IDW chassis on which the Generations toy was based. Decepticon players will have the chance to enlist the faction’s brutal enforcer, Barricade, who seems to draw inspiration from all sorts of recent incarnations as well as a G1-esque design aesthetic.
For full details on the event as well as the characters available in the crystal prizes, take the jump and read the full rundown!

The team at Space Ape have provided us with information on this weekend’s character event, featuring Kup for the Autobots, and Dead End for the Decepticons! Not only do we get new characters this weekend, but with Dead End’s addition to the game, we are also one step closer to having Menasor join the fight!

As we near the month of June and thus the release of the next Transformers film, yet another TV spot has aired! Thanks to the Instagram account of TF.daily, we have a recording of that TV spot, which features Cade, the group of trouble-seeking children, and what appears to be Steelbane.
Check out the link above to watch the new TV spot, and join the discussion already in progress to share your thoughts and excitement!
UPDATE: Higher quality video thanks to comicbook.com.
Thanks to the Planet Iacon Facebook page, we have what appears to be a possible Titans Return or Legends Orion Pax or Crosshairs repaint from the Sergeant Kup mold! While we don’t have any robot mode images just yet, we do have this one image of Pax/Crosshairs in alt mode alongside the recently released deluxe Barricade from the new movie toyline. Whether this Autobot is going to appear in the Titans Return line or Takara’s Legends line is yet to be determined if he shows up at all; but with Tokyo Toy Show just around the corner, there’s a chance the answer is the latter.
Stay tuned to TFW for more info on this figure and more as we near this year’s Toy Show overseas, and in the meantime, check out the full image after the jump!
