It's no secret that Titan Class Devastator has experienced mixed reactions starting even before we actually saw it, based on a few first-hand reports from no-photos showings pre-Toy Fair. The only thing everyone might be able to agree on is that the Devastator we got was not what was expected. But let's face it: for the prices involved, it's not unreasonable to expect as much perfection as possible. And as it's turning out, you can start to get there - for the right money. Keep reading!
Forums member Tambeyoda has uploaded a video review of the most recent TFSS entry to his Youtube channel for Nacelle, what's promised to be the penultimate use of the Classics Seeker mold by Fun Publications. This toy based on an obscure concept design from an old catalog certainly sells on the deco, though that may or may not be enough to overcome Seeker Fatigue with the mold around three dozen uses in at this point.

Group ToyMecha has seemingly launched with photos of a prototype figure based on Punch/Counterpunch, targeting the Masterpiece scale. Seen in comparison with the official Tigertrack, the currently unnamed double-agent is similar in height range with MakeToys' Cupola/Not-Chromedome. We can only glimpse the figure's alternate robot mode so far, but otherwise we're given a decent look at the design. Click through to check out the photos!

There's an in-store photo for reference which we've mirrored, so keep reading to have a look!

From the weibo page of foklautoy, we've got a set of good out of package shots of the Battalion level Cyber Series Megatron figure. The line of large, simple figures often borrowing engineering from Legends and Cyberverse designs has so far only turned up at retail in some Asian and South American locations, which is a shame since they're generally pretty cool looking, a point well evidenced by Megatron here.

Perfect Effect has announced that they're adding the Constructicons' guns to their PC-07 upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator! In addition, they've announced that both their PC-06 Devastator upgrades and PC-07 Constructicon upgrades should be compatibile with either the Takara or Hasbro releases - though presumably that's the biggest concern for PC-06, as PC-07 largely brings the Hasbro version up to speed with Takara's Unite Warriors UW04 version. Keep reading for the announcement and a teaser photo!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted a pair of preorders for new figures in the QTransformers line based on the Paper Rabbit Rope series. (That's pronounced "Ro-peh," not "rope.") There's precious little information about the characters out there, but we did find a Japanese language commerical of the QTransformers to be - Rope and Akira-sempai - enjoying delicious Nissin Ramen. Keep reading to see the ad and the photos!
TFW2005 has posted new images found on Weibo of FansProject's Function-X6 figure, Knight! This reuse of the MADLAW mold represents the Masterforce character Sixknight, the Japanese G1 equivalent of Quickswitch. It's looking pretty nice in Sixknight's cooler color scheme. Keep reading to see!

Robot Kingdom has just updated their Facebook page with copies of the Perfect Effect Devastator upgrade images, noting that preorders for them will begin next week. But more importantly it looks like they're also verifying the distribution of parts. According to their information, PC-06 will include the Devastator specific parts and vehicle upgrades, while PC-07 will feature just the Constructicon forearm addons. Pricing remains to be seen, but at least it looks like you'll have the chance to choose what extent of upgrades you want to apply.
