We bring you news today of a very special offer: The bike used for Chromia's alternate mode in the Revenge of the Fallen movie is now up for sale! The bike is brand new save for the parts that were used to upgrade it into Chromia, there are not stickers, only paint, and it is selling for $18,000 US. Check out the listing HERE and we have mirrored the description for you below along with the picture.
This is a 2009 Suzuki B-King with under 200 miles. This is the actual motorcycle used in the movie, with artist proof and artwork.
The entire paint job is PAINT, no stickers. I designed and built this bike and the others from the movie, and it has been in my collection since. It has never been ridden since the movie wrapped shooting and is on Ca Non Op. Unlike almost every movie car or bike, this is built to a very high standard, and is ready to ride. It does have a full custom LED light kit as well.
This is a unique chance to own a piece of movie and Transformers movie history.
This bike is as new in almost every way, save the parts that made it Chromia in the movie
Directly from the official Transformers Facebook page, we have our first animated preview of the Machinima series due this August on Go90: Transformers Combiner Wars! Following the events of the IDW storyline, the series uses Windblade as the viewers' perspective into the Cybertronian world - but it's Optimus Prime we hear narrating in the clip. Check out more below, and view the video below or by clicking here.
His name is Optimus Prime, and he was a leader, once. Now The Transformers: Combiner Wars demand his return.
Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath, we now have the full pack-in comic for Unite Warriors Lynx Master, by Hayato Sakamoto. While not yet translated it tells the story of how Sky Lynx and his team came to be a combiner while involving past Unite Warriors releases. It also hints at a possible Unite Warriors Victorion in the future.
In addition, fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has written up a rather comprehensive synopsis to give some clarity for non-Japanese-reading viewers.
Sabrblade wrote:Let's see, Cybertron gets blown up in the year 2011 during The Headmasters cartoon. Sky Lynx and the other four Autobots (with Ratchet somehow not dead, Wheeljack already got an explanation for his being alive) arriving to find the planet destroyed, much to their horror. They find Sunstreaker and Ironhide (who's also somehow alive again) in bad shape, as well as the shambled remains of Vector Sigma, who upgrades Sky Lynx and the other four who came with him into their UW bodies.
Ten years later, 2021, Cybertron's back in business but attacked by the recently-created Grand Galvatron. Marissa Faireborn and her daughter Sue bear witness to this alongside UW Ironhide. Trailbreaker puts up some resistance with his force field, which, from the looks of it, manages to detach Grand Galvatron's arms from his torso. Wheeljack uses the "Immobilizer V2" to disable Ghost Starscream. And Hound uses his holograms to trick Zombie War Breakdown into thinking Curse Armada Thrust is Medic Knock Out.
Down below, in the Oracle chamber first seen in Beast Machines, Ratchet works on either the dead Convoy or a new body for him (can't tell which) in front of the Oracle, within which lies Vector Sigma in its new Bw Eggbot redeco body that would have come with the Million Publishing Alpha Trion redeco of the Generations Scourge toy had that gotten released. Wandering Roller bursts in aiming to destroy Convoy, but Sky Lynx subdues him. The rest of Grand Galvatron's components burst in and are met by Sky Lynx's team.
Grand Galvatron and Lynx Master are formed and duke it out in the chamber. Lynx Master uses Hound's hologram fist to make multiples of himself, but Grand Galvatron overcomes this trick and blasts the real Lynx Master. As the battered Lynx Master lies on the ground at Grand Galvatron's mercy, he uses his Ratchet foot to heal his injuries and bites back at Grand Galvatron.
Elsewhere, five Decepticons stand in the shadow, all appearing to be the Victorion molds minus Rust Dust. According to this, their leader, the one based on Pyra Magna's mold, muses the following of the situation to the others: "As the wife of the Lord of Destruction, this cannot be ignored."
Fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg has a nice new video review for us: Generations Titans Return Blaster. This is part of the very first wave of Leader Class toys to come out of this new line. It also has 3 forms, like all voyagers and leaders in the Titans Return line so far, and turns into a boombox, a robot and a base for smaller bots. Speaking of smaller bots, he is also a headmaster and Chuck will go through the gimmick to show how it works and how the little robot can interact with the base. Enjoy and let us know if you will be getting this toy!
chuckdawg1999 wrote:Titans Return,oh how I'm torn about you. On one hand it's great to see Headmasters once again, but to see the gimmick applied to a character like Blaster leaves me, torn. Blaster is a great figure, it's fantastic to see the 80's style boom box finally. Robot mode can be a bit fiddly from the hips down, but it's worth mastering. Surprisingly base mode works a lot better than Optimus Prime's, featuring several attachment points for Titan Master figures. My opinions on the line are right down the middle for the time being so be your own judge if you want this figure.
Fellow Seibertronian primalxconvoy got his hands on Takara Transformers TAV 50 Hyper Surge Prime and wrote a quick review for us to highlight some points that may not be apparent at first glance. If anyone is interested in this toy, this is a great read to be aware of some problems in order to set your expectations, since this is intended for kids afterall. The short review is interspersed with relevant images from alfes's gallery.
I got this toy the other day. Here are some observations:
- No Autobot symbols in lorry mode (I used Repros for mine).
- No upper arm swivel, which is strange as his upper thighs do. This means that his posability is limited.
- The regular head swivels a bit, but the super mode visor DOES NOT. This means that he cannot look around in super mode.
- The arms, although engineered to have tabs, don't tab together in Alt mode very well.
- the clear sword blade and hilt are detachable, and feature a special peg which fits into only this prime's hands. Not sure why.
- No painted wheels, which is odd for Takara.
- The molded Autobot symbol on the eagle is both unpainted and obscured by the eagle head in super mode, meaning that Optimus has no clear faction symbol on display while in this mode.
- The cab comes unattached in the box, and simply hangs off the attached area. It's tempting to want to pull it down further, causing it to come off.
- the same for the wings, as they appear to fold, but don't.
In conclusion, the toy is perhaps more durable and easier to transform that the previous iteration of super mode Prime, but it's got less details and paint apps.
