Madman Entertainment has recently put their upcoming Super God Masterforce DVD up for Pre-Order at AU$59.95 on their site. The DVD box is to be release on February 13th 2008.

THE GODLIKE POWER OF MASTERFORCE!

The original tales of TRANSFORMERS G1 continue in this second Japanese sequel!

In the years following HEADMASTERS, Earth has been peaceful, but hidden, living among us - are Pretenders. A small team of Autobots have watched over us, assuming human size and appearance. The sudden re-emergence of their Decepticon foes forces Earth's secret defenders to come out of hiding.

The conflict escalates and with the power of Masterforce, both sides recruit new heroes. Humans join the fray, combining with Transformer bodies to fight! Behind it all, a sinister force manipulates events, culminating in the creation of the most powerful super robot - the Godmasters!

With high octane anime action, MASTERFORCE is the long awaited favourite that takes TRANSFORMERS to a whole new level!

I think they will do that.

The figures don't fit with the same design aesthetic as the movie. There were 2 transforming mobile phones in the movie, and they were radically different from the real gear phone.

I have Spyshot 6 and the one that turns into a game controller. The biggest similarity to the movie toys is that the transformation for the game controller has an automorph.

The interesting thing about the Real Gears is that they were all designed by one person. I believe he is an Australian designer, and also, the only nonJapanese designer that Takara has on board.

There was an interview about him a year ago, though I can't remember his name now. I remember in the interview that these designs were not originally designed for the movie. They were just added into the line (probably for marketing purposes).

I'm gonna have to say no but they are cool.

I'd love to see more of them, and I don't mean frikkin repaints.

I was actualy looking at my LaserBeak(I'm calling him that) and started thinking that a cool new alt for SoundWave would be Panasonic ToughBook(basicly an armored laptop) and the minions could be add on items like an Ipod, Digital Camera, and so on...

That would be cool, and he'd make a nice centerpiece for this side line!

The idea behind them is the movie plot, although the figures are designed differently. And are they actually popular? I thought they were a bust.

I remember the same thing, but for the life of me cannot remember his name either.

The Real Gears were never made for the movie line, but they did make the perfect Scout size line to compliment the Scout-less Movie figures. The fact they have Transformer heads rather than deformed melted plastic heads is proof!

I think the original colored ones have been popular. I don't know about the repaints though.

They were just made to ride on the popularity of the movie.

To me, they're not related at all.

Didn't get any single one of them.

Well they were released in the movie line, not remolded/repainted previously, and have a some what logical excuse to be in that line- I'd have to say they are part of the movie line :P Granted, not design wise, but they technically are bots from Earth for the most part.

They were designed for different purposes but ended up fitting in perfectly with the movie's storyline.

I have about a half-dozen of them and they're all really nice little robots who are all pretty much in scale with whatever they're supposed to be. :D

Are they balanced out? I mean numerically, good vs evil thingy.

We were getting good/bad versions of each mold,
but some of the newer repaints are the same faction as the first version of the mold.

As for the question of weather or not they are technically part of the movie line can be answered by visiting the hasbro toy shop.

I think they are part of the movie.

While the don't exactly match the aesthetic of the movie designs. I think they were totally planned to be part of the movie line, while not being part of the main Movie Cast.

They are in Movie packaging, came out during the Movie where marketed as movie merchandise. And yet have a somewhat weak connection to the Movie but a connection nonetheless: "The Allspark creating TF's from everyday devices".

If they had been planned for another line, they had plenty of time to release them with Classics or Cybertron before, or wait to release them with Animated. However they really have no connection whatsoever to any of the lines. Cybertorn did not have hand held devices that transformed into robots. they have no G1 connection to speak of, so make no sense in classics. And AFAIK nothing has been said about transformable devices in Animated.

So the only logical explanation is they where made specifically for the Movie line. And are part of the Movie line since they where marketed as such.

They have the added benefit that since they don't use any Movie designs, they are 100% Hasbro property, and all profits belong to Hasbro. No need to share with Paramount or Dreamwork, however they are part of the movie line.

The article on the little guys over on Teletraan actually explains their placement within the movie line - http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Real_Gear_Robots

They were designed earlier, put on hold, and then the movie came along which ended up being a perfect fit for them.

I read an interview with the same guy, I don't know if it was the same interview, but I don't recall any mention of him designing the Real Gears singlehandedly. He designed the bird/Mp3 player, and it might have mentioned another one.

Yo

What impresses me the most is that he's designed some of the absolute greatest figures of recent times. Classics Mirage, Bumblebee, and Concept Camaro Bumblebee.
