Thanks to 2005 Board member Cardion for sharing in our boards a set of in-hand images of the new Transformers Cyberverse Roll & Change Optimus Prime.
This figure transforms automatically just by rolling them in alt mode. Both figures feature lights, 10 button-activated sound effects and Energon armor parts. As we can see from the images this is quite a big figure, more than twice the size of a Cyberverse Deluxe figure and even taller than Cyberverse Ultimate class Megatron. While big, robot mode has a limited poseability due to his gimmicks. We have a clear look at all the Energon armor parts and even a short video showing off the auto-transforming gimmick. A simple but fun toy for Cyberverse fans.
Watch all the images and video after the break and then let us know your impressions on the 2005 Board!
Third party company Dreamstar Toys have updated, via their Weibo account, images of the color prototype of their DST01-001 Slingshoot (Aerialbot Slingshot).
This is a highly stylized design take on Slingshot, with a different sculpting choice compared to the cartoon-accuracy tendency of recent figures. The images reveal a good level of poseability in robot mode and a solid and realistic alt mode. According to the information shared, it will be around 22 cm tall in robot mode, with die-cast and it won’t need any extra parts to form the combiner. This figure is part of Dreamstar Toys Encourager / Superion which they had already revealed a complete gray prototype before, and the color prototype of DST01-001 Slingshoot (Aerialbot Slingshot).
We still have not concrete information about price or release date, but stay tuned with TFW2005 for more updates. Now click on the bar to see the mirrored images on this news post and then sound off on the 2005 Board!
Via friend site and sponsor Robotkingdom we have images of the new Transformers Masterpiece MP-52 Starscream 2.0 box.
This release brings us a completely new cartoon-accurate mold of the Decepticon Seeker commander. The box design follows the previous Masterpiece boxes style showing Starscream in jet and robot mode in the front, and some poses and all the accessories in the back.
This Masterpiece will start shipping by the end of this month. You can still pre-order one for your collection via any of our sponsors below. You can now check out the mirrored images after the jump, and join the discussion on the 2005 Boards!
The River magazine is revealing the Japanese title and the logo for Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts.
The movie title is changed to Transformers: Beast Awakening for the Japanese audience. It’s not uncommon for a Japanese title to be very different from its western counterpart.
Despite the title reveal, a release date for Japan is unannounced at this time.
