Transformers News
Generations
Thanks once again to Allspark for providing high quality scans of this month's Figure King magazine. In it we get a good look at TakaraTomy's Constructicons, including a look at the hand weapons and a better idea of the individual deco choices, plus some Transformers Adventure including Override and Runabout, some QTF, and a full page look at ThreeA's movie Optimus Prime figure. We've mirrored Transformers relevant pages and highlighted some of the individual images, so keep reading to check it out.
Conventions Center
We wanted to give everyone the heads up. Hasbro revealed during the course of SDCC that their exclusives were planned to make their way on to HasbroToyShop on July 28th, which is tomorrow! If you're hoping to get yourself any of this year's offerings, be ready to join your fellow fans in monitoring the site starting tomorrow morning for stock to be activated. We were able to bring you reviews of all of these exclusives, so if you want to familiarize yourself again before the big day, click through for a list of our coverage!
Third Party
After revealing recently via CG design models a full out replacement for Combiner Wars Mixmaster, today Dr Wu has shown photos of a prototype piece. The figure's robot mode will stand somewhat taller than the official Mixmaster, but from the look of these photos doesn't improve on the design meaningfully. Also seen on their Weibo page are renders of arm replacements for Scrapper, and an improved crane arm for Hook. We've got the images mirrored, so click through and check it out.
Third Party
Something that should make potential buyers a bit happier with upcoming Maketoys products. Their site has been updated to show that the upgrade parts to make Deluxe Cyclonus more like the IDW appearance is its own product - MM-02 SP "E.A.K." - and Rear End (aka Not-Tailgate) looks like it will be sold solo. With any luck, MM-02SP will be priced similarly to the MFB weapon kit that sold alongside Trashtalk and Cogwheel, making it easily accessible to everyone who wants to makeover their Cyclonus!
Third Party
The group Master Made has released a few new concept renders showing off their followup to the recently released Titan, a super-deformed style figure of Metroplex. Diabolus Rex represents Trypticon with a similar style of tweaked proportions, though that fact is certainly less immediately evident for the dinosaur body than it is on Titan's robot mode. We don't have any further information currently, besides that it seems to be aimed for a release late this year. Keep reading to have a look at the renders!
Generation 1
52Toys caught sight of another SD-style Transformers product from Fewture. Their ES Gokin series will be bringing out a Fortress Maximus figure in the near future, but that's not the only thing to note here. On a display card behind Max is a silhouette that bears a distinct resemblance to Victory leader Star Saber, giving a good pointer of what might be next up after Fortress Maximus has come himself. Keep reading to check out the photos!
Age of Extinction
If you like busts and statues, then you're in business! Prime 1 Studios had pieces on display from Age of Extinction at Wonderfest this weekend. Busts of Optimus Prime and Galvatron, replicating the heads and upper bodies of the characters in painstaking detail, plus a full statue of Lockdown with one of his "hunting dogs". It's probably the best merchandise representation of Lockdown that will ever exist, and the price tag is sure to reflect that! Click through to check them out.
Legends
Wonderfest is currently underway in Japan, and thanks to sources like the 52Toys Weibo page, we have pictures of some of the Transformers goods on display. First up is a look at the Masterpieces, including shots of Road Rage and Ironhide. Also on hand are Legends Series figures including Ultra Magnus and Blackarachnia. Finally, Devastator is there to look down on everyone else. Keep reading to have a look at the mirrored display images!
Transformers Adventure
Hisashi Yuki has shared some new pictures on Twitter, this time showing the big Optimus Prime from the Transformers Adventure series. TAV 21 Optimus has always clearly been a large toy, but in these photos we get to see it with Unite Warriors Superion, and they're right about the same size! However, we subsequently see that it still barely makes it to Devastator's waist, though that's not much of a reassurance towards the toy's height! Click through to have a look.
Third Party
Revealed as a set of loose parts when they showed off the color shots of their Tailgate-based Rear End figure, tonight Maketoys has posted a set of photos with the upgrades installed on Deluxe Generations Cyclonus. Meant to bring it a bit more in line with the IDW appearance, the upgrade parts change the head and hands, and add hip plate armor and a Great Sword. The vehicle integration isn't 100% successful, but we've seen worse attempts from upgrade sets. Keep reading to see the photos!
Third Party
Fansproject has published a couple of promo pieces for the next two figures in their Function X Headmaster series. X-8 Crox based on Skullcruncher has been three years in the making, but looks close to being released with seemingly final production colors samples in the latest image. Meanwhile, the yet-unnamed Highbrow-alike is still a CG render, but hopefully not as far in the future as was the wait for Crox, the last of the batch of figures promoted at TFCon 2012. Keep reading to check them out!

Planet X wants to make sure you can tell the difference between their Vulcan, and Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. As it turns out that won't be difficult since Vulcan seems to have about twice the volume. In new pictures posted to Facebook today, Vulcan is easily tossing around dinosaur mode Grimlock who looks like, well, a toy in comparison. They again note this isn't a final design, but it's hard to imagine what they might still improve on this figure. Keep reading to check out the photos.
Third Party
DX9 Toys has also posted a series of photos of their Mightron, announced earlier this month. The photos show the prototype in both modes, as well as in comparison with a range of other unofficial and official figures, including Hulkie, the Legends-scale Devastator. No word currently on if the final product will be given an orange safety tip for the gun barrel, though it's fairly likely. Keep reading to have a look.
Third Party
On their Weibo page, DX9 Toys has posted pictures of one of their newest upcoming items, X14 Leah, a Legends-size figure based on Arcee. Going by what can be seen in the photos of this prototype, its transformation borrows a lot from the Generations toy, though with some differences owing to the needs of this scale. We have the images mirrored, so click through and check it out!
Third Party
Via Weibo, Dr Wu has announced the most ambitious yet of the parade of Titan Class Devastator add-ons: A new Mixmaster. The Weibo posting indicates that the final product is intended to favor the G1 toy more. Besides the obvious visual styling to that end, the drum is planned to rotate, and the head design may be more toy inspired than the generally cartoon-derived heads of the Constructicons in the set. So far the new figure is only represented as CG superimposed over photos of the other toys. Click through to check out the concept images.
Third Party
Maketoys has updated the product page for their next "Manga Mech" series entry, Rear End, also known as "not-Tailgate". This very IDW styled figure looks like a step up from the earlier effort of representing Swerve's comic design, capturing the character very nicely. The set was also said to include extra parts to convert Deluxe Cyclonus to more resemble the comic design, though these elements aren't pictured. We've got the photos mirrored, so click through and check it out.
Third Party
Corbot V, best known for their War Axe accessory designed for Generations War For Cybertron Optimus Prime has revealed a new project, moving to the realm of a complete figure. Project: Reyes is based on the Quintessons' alligator sentries from the G1 cartoon, and can clearly be seen to be transformable in the current CG render shown. More details are reportedly coming in the near future, in the meantime, click through to see the full preview image.
Third Party
The age of third party Dinobots continues, as PlanetX makes sure everyone remembers they're still in the game by presenting Vulcan, their take on Fall of Cybertron style Grimlock. With a comparison to the official figure of the design, Vulcan is significantly larger, and has a greater amount of complexity that seems to be alleviating some of the aesthetic woes of FOC Grimlock. They caution that this prototype is not a final design, but what they have right now is very encouraging! Click through to check it out.
