Transtech is Here!

What a fantastic surprise!  Check out TransformersClub.com and learn about the new story arc being rolled out,  "Transtech!"  You'll find a 4-page preview of what they have in store for club members and attendees of Botcon.  For those who are not familiar, "Transtech" was the toy/cartoon series that was set to follow Beast Machines.  To the disappointment of many fans, it was set aside in favor of R.I.D. which left all of us wondering, "what exactly would have happened following the conclusion of Beast Machines?"

TFarchive.com has put together a very comprehensive page w/ images and info about TRANSTECH.   These listings include concept sketches produced by Druxall Jump with characters ranging from Cheetor, Silverbolt and Nightscream to Starscream, Soundwave and Immorticon...  As you can see, some prototype toys were produced.  All we can say is keep your fingers crossed!  Let's hope they kept the molds!!

Further, Allspark.com is reporting the Club has, "...revealed the line up for the upcoming Transformers Universe (Classics 2.0) line coming this Fall.  Among the Deluxe sized figures are Sunstreaker, Prowl, and Tankor (better known as Octane).  Joining them in the Ultra price range is Onslaught and Powerglide.  They also showed an image of the upcoming Sunstreaker figure (for Club Members Only)."

Stay tuned, I'm sure there's more to come!

I had forgotten about the TransTech designs. Some of them look similar to final movie designs. For those of you who aren't club members (shame on you, it's worth it!) Sunstreaker looks amazing. He looks like a deluxe sized alternator. It is easy to see how a Sideswipe recolor will be made to transform differntly, yet only require a new head sculpt.

Dudes, this is super awesome! For one thing if we have a shot at getting a set of entirely new molded figures, that in and of itself would rock house! If were treated to a set of never before released Transtech toys?!!... That too kicks tail... To get to see Transtech stoyr produced by fans for fans... Sa-WEEEEET! And one other thing, when I think of the styling of Transtech, I can think of no comic artist whose own artistic style better suits these characters than Alex Milne...

Bravo Transformers Club!!!!

Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. I've been waiting for Transtech... well, it seems like forever now. It's like coming home seeing Cheetor and Silverbolt again, albeit in new forms and bodies, but it's them. I really need to join the collector's club. A while back IDW produced a collection of the 12 issues featuring Vector Prime that closed up the Universe line. I'm really hoping they do it again for the Classicverse stories and this Transtech story. I honestly can't wait to see this story unfold.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-01-23 22:34:52
The more I think about it, the more I think, hmm not very likely that we'll get Transtech toys. But you can chalk that up to my wishful thinking... Here's hoping!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-01-24 04:20:14
Will this story have any effect on the already established Universe storyline or the Beast Wars Reborn story?
Byrer prime said,  - 2008-01-24 07:38:50
Ever since they announced Transtech would be the TFCC story, I thought they might have something up their sleeves for BotCon. Like you said, some of those toys were produced as prototypes. Here's hoping.

WOW! thats all I have to say! this is the only transformers series that I have never known about!
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-01-24 09:28:52
Sabr, I would be prepared for the Reborn continuity to just get destroyed one day. Considering that it is completely a Japanese exclusive and it's a pretty bad one, just be ready for that. As it stands, however, it doesn't look like
Transtech is taking place right after Beast Machines like it originally would. And considering that the CC comics continue from where Universe left off, I highly doubt they are going to do anything to take those out of continuity.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-01-24 09:29:01
oh and guys, I'm sorry but I eased up last night and did something I thought I'd never do. I bought something other than transformers! I went to a local slackers store and picked up marvel legends Blackheart.just thought I'd try something new! I'm very impressed with the figure. pretty good ranges of posablilty for not being a transformer."I need TP for my bungholio!" LMAO!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-01-24 10:18:06
You bought something besides Transformers?!!! So, what? A guy can like more than one thing. I'm currently buying all the new digimon toys that I want, since there aren't any new TFs on the shelves yet.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-01-24 10:20:35
yeah I know but before I was 100% full-fledged Decepticon fanatic but now it feels like I've deceived someone.:(
I cheated at my hobbie and must be punished, bring out the cat-o-nine-tails!!!!!!! and another reason is that I'm supposed to be saving for botcon!

...traitors...

lol

My eyes widened when I read that. I never thought they'd revisit Transtech! I am quite excited, I hope they go through with this. I know we probably won't get figures but at the very least a comic book story of Transtech detailing what happens post BM, that would make me happy. I liked the Transtech designs when I first saw them and wished they hadn't been cancelled considering what we got in exchange (As Grimlock says: Car Robots BAD!!).
lord megatron said,  - 2008-01-24 10:31:05
god every time I go to type my name my fingers want to type L-O-L! anyways, thats cool about the transtech thing. never new that there was supposed to be a line after beast machines. I hope animated doesn't end so soon either. But what I would like to see even though we already have G1, is a CGI show by mainframe done for classics. it won't happen but oh well.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-01-24 11:21:42
I hope to primus that the ultra powerglide isn't what i think it is!! cybertron jetfire+new paint= classics powerglide. uugggghhhh!!!!
lord megatron said,  - 2008-01-24 12:26:22
sure, and btw, this is older news I just didn't remember if you guys made an article about this but, did you guys see that there is a MP-03 Corination accessery comming out in march including the crown, cape, and shoulders?
Master Dex said,  - 2008-01-24 13:09:21
I've been wondering if they would make a coronation set. Do you know if it will be available in US... I doubt it though. It would be a great addition to my Starscream.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-01-24 13:22:17
heres the article: "Who dares disrupt my coronation!"

It has come. Armor upgrades created to turn the traitorous, power hungry Decepticon Starscream, Masterpiece Version, into Emperor Starscream from the original cartoon movie!

TFClub seems to create a piece that fans will be clamoring to get their hands on.



According to information the additional armor pieces are coming out in March.

View more images here including a set on Masterpiece Skywarp.

Is this more than just 'bad comedy'? You tell us and join the ongoing discussion here in the already existing thread in the Toys Forum!

>>I hope to primus that the ultra powerglide isn't what i think it is!! cybertron jetfire+new paint= classics powerglide. uugggghhhh!!!!<<

(I think you mean Wingsaber, which is an Ultra version of the same type of plane...) I thought the exact same thing LM. I *really* hope it's not that also.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-01-24 15:33:51
Well, we are getting a new Onslaught. It's not a redeco of the Energon Barricade figure. So we should be getting what we deserve.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-01-24 16:40:09
responding to tyscream: no, sadly the only games I have right now are new super mario brothers and sonic rush.
now, responding to perceptors comment: no, its not that I meant wingsaber its just that I didn't think of the similarities! lol!but now that you point it out, there are more similarities between those two, I just hope to god that hasbro and takara aren't listening in right now!
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-01-24 17:08:14
Tyscream, Transtech was the series that was supposed to come after Beast Machines. Instead, however, they decided to dub the Japanese Anime series Car Robots and made Robots in Disguise to fill the gap between the years before they could start the Unicron Trilogy with Armada. Transtech was meant to merge the continuities of the time featuring Beast Era characters such as Cheetor, Silverbolt, and Depthcharge and put them with G1 characters such as Optimus Prime, Megatron and Shockwave. Like I said, the series was dropped and left the world with concept art and a few prototype toys and we never thought we'd see the series come to life. This is a big event in Transformers histroy. And unless you are like us and you follow up on the TFs online and such, not many will know it exists, just like few seem to know that it was meant to.
Jumpercliff said,  - 2008-01-24 18:05:22
Wow. So that's Transtech. Interesting.

Saw the Sunstreaker pic a while ago, so not to spoil anything too much, it's like a mini-alternator.
Jeffery L. said,  - 2008-01-24 19:47:31
Hey!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-01-24 21:21:21
Tyscream, I got Mario Kart DS. But I haven't played it in a long time, so I've lost some of my experience.

Also, to elaborate more on what TPR said, Transtech would takes the use of animal and vehicle altmodes to the next level. The altmodes would be vehicles with animal features. For example, Cheetor would no longer a cheetah. He would be a racecar-like vehicle with a cheetah head at the vehicle's front. And Depth Charge would've a submersible that turned into a warrior merman-like robot mode.

There is too much for me to describe, so check out these pages for more info:

I can't find the pictures of Sunstreaker. I'm a club member and I just travel around in circles on the website looking for the darn thing.

Yeah, I hope Powerglide doesn't isn't a repaint of Cybertron Jetfire or Wingsaber. I have a gut feeling it is, being it's an ultra. If it is a repaint of Wingsaber, it will look good combined with Cybertron Prime. The legends version, which was supposed to be Powerglide, (I can't remenber the name they used)was a repaint of Jetfire. The one I'm the most excited for is Octane.

Buying something that's not Transformers is okay, I still like my old Rock Lords!

Tyscream, I own the two best games for the Nintendo DS, Transformers Autobots and Transformers Decepticons. I like the Decepticon game better. I have other games as well.

Transtech is very interesting, I heard about it on the extras on one of my G1 cartoon DVDs when they visited Botcon. I don't know much about it, but I think they should continue it. I give a two thumbs up to anything connected to G1 and Beast Wars eras. I noticed something with Transtech and War Within. War Within is their Cybertronian forms and Transtech is a return of Cybertronian forms only way more advanced.
Slashwing said,  - 2008-01-25 07:26:38
I read about Transtech a long time ago, there were even toy prototypes of Starscream and Cheetor, Starscream was supposed to be an electronic deluxe! and there was a fake prime prototype that turned up to be a drawing of a truck and a gundam robot

still the images posted in tformers.com were really promising I too hope they made molds of this stuff!!

Lukis bros,you shouldn't allow just everyone to remove comments that are not theirs.

I seen the pic of Sunstreaker. It's nice but is isn't something I'd say wow to either. He's for sure not a bad figure either. It's a definite must buy though. I can't wait to see Onslaught and Octane.
Rhinox said,  - 2008-01-26 18:08:14
Me too

TransTech is so WICKED!!! :D
