Includes the latest news from Ark Studio, Badcube, Before and After, DMY, HeeroToysMaker, Keith's Fantasy Club, Maketoys, MasterShooter Collectibles, Planet X and Play With This Too.
Screen shot this week is of one of the Armada robots from the 2013 film Atlantic Rim.
Following teaser images of the figures to be included, Mastershooter has posted updates on their Facebook page revealing the theme of the Shooter Master set they'll be offering at TFCon in Chicago later this week. Criminal Investigation pairs "Ballgag", with coloring based on Nightbeat's Headmaster Muzzle, and "Hustler" colored after Starscream's Mini-Con Swindle. Pricing is still to be determined, but keep reading to check out the package shot and card art!
Vangelus (you know the one) has put up a video featuring both Brawny and Backland, the Masterpiece-scale/style figures representing Brawn and Outback by Badcube, formerly known as Cubex. While the video does not entirely
make it clear, these appear to be test shot figures, but should be overall representative of the production units. If Huff had poor reception enough to drive Cubex to rebranding, this video will be a big step towards determining if they've come out of it for the better. Keep reading to see the embedded video!
Armada Starscream is a really well done Generations Deluxe, but one thing he's missing is his original Mini-Con partner, Swindle. MasterShooter Collectibles is working on fixing that, with a figure seemingly codenamed "Hustler" going by the capitalization of the word in the announcement. While not a racecar anymore, Hustler turns into a gun, which is at least just as good. You can also spy an adapter on the Mini-Con port on Starscream's left arm, which will likely let you mount Hustler in place of the traditional Starscream arm-guns. Keep reading to see the photo!
Just out is a new image of the packaging and render of the robot, plus news on it having metallic finish. It will also appear at TFcon. Read on to see the quote from Keith's Fantasy Club with the details on this exclusive figure they will be offering.

RobotKingdom's Facebook page has posted a link to Kuma Style's video review of TFC Phobus! Phobus is Not-Divebomb, the fifth part of the Ares combiner (who looks an awful lot like Predaking). Not only does he have a massive set of wings expandable to a Predaking-appropriate wingspan, but even comes with Power Core Combiner-compatible connectors so he can quit the Predacons in a huff and go form his own
combiner team with blackjack and drones. Keep reading to see the review!
Planet X has shared new images of their upcoming Neptune figure to Facebook. Better known as the Fall of Cybertron version of Dinobot Sludge, Neptune is looking really good and should fit in with your Generations FoC Grimlock just fine. Keep reading to see the photos!
Third party Transformers news for the week ending October 11th, 2014.
Includes the latest news from Dawgstar, Dr. Wu, DX9 Toys, Impossible Toys, Maketoys, Mastermind Creations, MasterShooter Collectibles, and Play With This Too.
DX9 has posted an image to their Facebook page of D03I Invisible, a Mirage-themed recolor of their D03 Crasher figure. It looks pretty good! It seems similar in construction to the superb Classics mold of Mirage, but has less stylized proportions if that's your thing. Invisible is expected to appear in the 4th quarter of 2014 (you're soaking in it!) with a price of $84.99. Keep reading to see the photo! Order the figure now from BBTS at bigbadtoystore.com
Thanks to official Warbotron (Botron War) Facebook page, we have a batch of new images show uts the WB01-D Whirlwind action figure. Get a look at the fourth (D) combiner figure in their on-going Not Bruticus series that is a homage to the G1 Vortex character. Read on to see what looks like the final production figure in robot and alternate modes.
Just in from NYCC 2014 is more images showing off a variety ofThird Party figures that are on display on the show floor. No, Hasbro is not showing them. These are from a retailer who is at the show. Get a look at many of the figures we have seen circulating in recent months including Homages to a combiners and a number of G1 chararacter homages such as Shockwave, Blaster, Dinobots and Optimus Prime! Note, the proto ship is a non-TF Master Made SDF1 Makuros figure. Read on to see the images now.
Just an information update, people who ordered Ripper are getting shipping notices and tracking numbers sent to their emails. Also, in-hand pictures of Ripper have appeared online, including a fan-bird mode, that makes him look like Generation 1 Cutthroat.
Okay, so Generations Nightbeat is not a Headmaster. And his head is so tiny that it's extremely unlikely that anybody is going to be able to make a third party Headmaster for it. Mastershooter Collectibles has a clever solution: make him a Targetmaster (or Shooter Master) instead! Helped immensely by the fact that Nightbeat's Nebulan partner was named "Muzzle," the new Targetmaster will be available at TFCon Chicago. Prior experience leads us to believe this Targetmaster will be high-quality and reasonably priced. Keep reading to see the photo!
