Encore, Henkei, & Other TakaraTomy Sighted.


It would be surreal but its true TakaraTomy products the Japanese released Transformers has been sighted in local stores. The vintage reissues of Jazz, Ratchet, and Ironhide from the Encore toyline goes for PhP 999.75 pesos.

The Transcans of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee from the Transformers The Movie toyline goes for PhP 1,299.00 pesos. The Japanese version of TF Classics/TF Universe known as Henkei had Deluxe Class Grimlock (PhP 700 pesos) and Voyager Class Optimus Prime (PhP 1,200 pesos). There's the Transformers The Movie Leader Class Megatron (PhP 999.75) and Voyager Class Ratchet (PhP 699.75) on sale that had the TakaraTomy sticker on the box now all over the place.

Let's hope Playkit (The local distributor) continue bringing not only the Hasbro releases, but TakaraTomy editions.

Sighted also are the TF Universe Ultra Class Storm Cloud (repaint of Powerglide) and Silverbolt. TF Universe two-pack box sets, but sold out are Deluxe Class Sideswipe and Silverstreak. As well as the rumored TF Animated Swoop which was no longer in sight.

Check out your local department stores for these newly released Transformes. Prepare a long Holiday season as more are coming!

Pretender Robots in Revenge of the Fallen



We got this heads up from TFW2005 that there will be a female character in the movie named Alice who transforms in to a humanoid robot. A transformer who hides in a human shell also known as Pretenders.
The TFW TF2 Insider has confirmed that the character of Alice, as played by Isabel Lucas, in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, is a Pretender. For those not familiar with Transformers sublines from the 1980s, Pretenders are Transformers that are hidden inside a shell that acts as their disguise. In the case of Alice, the shell will be an attractive human woman while the inner robot is best described as a hybrid of the Frenzy robot design from the first movie. The Pretender Transformer will have an arm that transforms into an energy weapon, a long tongue, and a scanning tentacle.
So we will be seeing a female android like character in the movie. This is interesting. Let's hope this concept will work out good for the movie.

Transformers Animated The Game Box Art


The only playable character here are Optimus Prime, Bulk Head, Bumble Bee and Prowl. Each has its own distinct abilities which prompts the users to often switch between characters inside the game. These are some of the screenshots I've taken from the first part of the game which will further explains how the game play is like:

bulk head in ds game

This is the switch to Bulk Head in Mission mode. He is able to block enemy attacks and pounce through obstacles (e.g. breakable walls and doors). He can aim through objects and unleash his wrecjking ball for damage and unlocking doors. He can't jump though.

Bumble Bee's ability in Mission Mode is the stingers which is essential to destroy enemies and open up generators and lifts. Bumble Bee has the ability to jump to walls.

Optimus Prime can use his grappling hook to zip up or down through obstacles and use his giant axe to slash through enemies or throw it at them. He can also block attacks

This is Prowl in Race Mode. He can zip left and right to avoid other vehicles in the road and jump up through obstacles. He can also transform and shoot stars at flying or moving enemies. It is said that Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee can be used in Race Mode as well.
