It's a good day for artistic endeavors by Transformers fans! Tonight we have a batch of photos to bring you from Alvaro Valdivieso Paredes, who's gone to Facebook posting his custom built Autobot starship Ark as seen in the G1 cartoon. Though this one might take some cues from the mild redesign it had for its appearance in Beast Wars rather than being strictly original-cartoon-derived. Though no distinct scale is given, seeing the real estate it occupies on tabletops helps give a sense of its bulk. While it may not be the biggest ever, it's no less impressive, and you can keep reading to see it in full!
It's certainly not a new thing - Transformers fans wanting to represent a favorite character can and do show remarkable talent in recreating robots in costume form. And so it was with Anthony Darkenstein (I so hope that's his real last name) who created a fantastic costume of G1 Galvatron to wear around the Calgary Expo that took place this weekend. This skillful effort was rewarded as he managed to turn heads not just at the show, but all over the internet as photos of him made their way around social media. We've collected a few of them, so keep reading to have a look for yourself!
A poster by the name of xywnhy on the SunSon Son Facebook page has posted a gallery of images showing off a new knockoff of MP-24 Star Saber. While the guide to identifying the figure contained within is in Chinese, several of the details make it self-evident which is which... at least, on close
examination. If you see an impossibly cheap Star Saber somewhere, just remember: buyer beware. Keep reading for more info on this new bootleg.
With UW06 Grand Galvatron safely released, Hisashi Yuki has today posted a new image of the next
boxful of cool robots he wants to sell you: Unite Warriors UW07 Bruticus! The first drop in what will inevitably become a deluge is a shot of the individual Combaticons in their robot modes: Brawl, Blast Off, Vortex, Swindle, and Onslaught! Click through to have a closer look!
An enterprising fan in China has apparently decided to take it upon himself to add a Metroplex of appropriate scale to help display his collection. We don't know the name of the builder (but if you do please let us know!) but these photos show some impressive building work, starting with a metal frame. One image even suggests it's designed to lay down for the battlestation/ship mode, though that's not depicted in the finished image. Despite being taller than a human, it seems this is still not quite big enough, being shown with Smallest Transformers. But it's still super impressive building! Keep reading to see the pictures!
The test shot of Titans Return Blaster
that surfaced on Weibo a while back is now up for sale on eBay... and the seller has brought an interesting aspect of the figure to light: the face on the figure is not the one used on the final release of Blaster. What else could it be? Well, RAC has a theory: keep reading to see!
Loopaza Mega Store has posted the scans from this month's Figure-Oh
(Figure King) Magazine to Facebook! While there's not a lot here that is truly new, you can see Unite Warriors Computron and Legends Shockwave, Blurr, and Scourge all in one place. Plus the Anniversary recolors of the Legends Beast Wars figures - and the first good look at the scale of Masterpiece Optimus Primal! Keep reading to have a look.
BadCube has revealed the latest in their Old Time Series of Masterpiece-style, unofficial renditions of G1 characters: OTS-09 Grump! Patterned after famous curmudegon Gears, the lineart shown is a pretty good likeness. The only note included with the image reads: "I hate this place, get me outta here. stop bothering me!" Keep reading for a closer look!
The Toy Scope Facebook page has posted images of MP-30's Asian-release exclusive collector's coin - the bonus given out to those who purchase the figure via Hasbro Asia in non-Japanese parts of Asia. It's a solid entry in the series, with Ratchet's vehicle mode front end on the outside and his definitely-not-a-red-cross deco within. Keep reading for a closer look!
By now, Ript Appearel have mashed up so many cool popular ideas, we thought they would never do anything new and cool with the Transformers again, until the Reservoir Bots. This is one is more than meets with surprise from artist Samiel, who's taken all our favorite Decepticons and turned them into a Reservoir Dogs homage that just full of badness. Read on to see the images and where to order the goods.
Just in from the Brazil Toy Fair that just happened to be going on the same weekend as BotCon. We have a surprise with the Transformers Platinum Edition Rise of Rodimus Prime boxed set. This is an interesting one with Hasbro including the Titanium Rodimus Prime figure mold and his Matrix of Leadership, along with the Universe 2.0 Galvatron figure mold. It will be interesting to see if Hasbro re-issues Rodimus Prime with die-cast parts or plastic. Read on for the gallery and translated report from Transformers Dioramas.
Prime1Studio has posted a new image to their Instagram account to promote their upcoming G1-inspired statue line. First up is Megatron, whose design is more modern and elaborate than the original but clearly shows G1 influences. Josh Nizzi, who has contributed design work to every Transformers film since Revenge of the Fallen, is credited with the design. Keep reading to see!
Preempting Hisashi Yuki's inevitable Twitter post, Autobase Aichi and site sponsor TFSource have published grayscale shots of the increasingly impressive Unite Warriors Computron! Due in August, the figure is almost completely different from the leaked Hasbro release at every level - and this is the best shot we've yet seen of its combined form. Keep reading to see!
Hisashi Yuki has posted some photos of Scattershot to Twitter! A further modification of Hasbro's Silverbolt remold, the grayscale hardcopy features more remolding than we knew about previously with a new Robot Mode chest. Yuki also promises color photos and more information in April, which... starts 15 minutes from the time of this writing in Japan! Keep reading to have a closer look.
...so, how badly do
you want a Scrounge? Hisashi Yuki has posted a new image to Twitter showing off Unite Warriors Computron's new headsculpt! Computron (known as Computicon in Japan) has an all-new head complete with mouth, yet another advantage the TakaraTomy version will likely have over the leaked US boxset. Keep reading to see!
