Toy Review: "Transformers Prime" Weaponizer Bumblebee

in Autobot, News, Prime, Robots in Disguise, Weaponizer

BUMBLEBEE is one of the smartest fighters the AUTOBOTS have, and he's made a career out of taking out opponents far larger than himself.

in News

Hi Guys -

Good news that we have listed the TFC Project Uranos SR-71 Blackbird preorder! This was previously rumored to be double the price of the single figures, due to a significantly larger toy and all the extra parts included. The good news is that the price is more but at $129.95 far from double the price of the single limbs. Pricing should be final but if it comes in lower we'll adjust everyone's preorders accordingly!

Preorder yours today at TFsource here:

Rumor Mill: Mark Wahlberg being courted for "Transformers 4"? Not so much.

in News

The rumor mill has been churning about "Transformers 4" casting for quite some time now. At one point, action star Jason Statham (Expendables, The Transporter) was thought to have been in the lead for a role in the film. Now the latest name to pop up is Mark Wahlberg (who just worked with Michael Bay on "Pain and Gain").
