DX9 has shared some pictures from a small display exhibit of their upcoming items on Weibo. Notably this gives us a nice look at a color sample of their Gewalt figure, a Masterpiece-esque take on G1 Blitzwing. Though it's only seen in robot mode, it seems to favor the cartoon rather strongly. Some of the DX9's smaller items were also shown, including Mightron/Megatron, Leah/Arcee, Toufold/Kup and apparently the three pack versions of their Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge. Keep reading to check it all out!
KFC's popular Transistor figure is getting a new look with this shattered repaint version.
Like the previous Transistor figure, he will stand just over 9 inches tall in robot mode and the chest opens to hold 3 KFC cassettes at once.
At this time, we know that this version of Transistor will include 5 cassettes. More information is coming soon, so stay tuned!
This item is listed for $139.99 USD to ship in 2nd quarter of 2016. Order now at bigbadtoystore.com
Toy Scope has posted on Facebook a set of pictures and a brief review of a near-final sample of Browning II, the next entry in the Fansproject Function X unofficial Headmaster lineup. The review mostly talks about the details of the transformation (watch out if you like to stay surprised on these figures) and a short run through of the articulation in addition to some quick, more general comments. Plus we got a number of nice photos out of it showing off the figure's two modes. You can see a copy of the review as well as the photos below!
On Facebook, Anthony Yeung has shared a quick few photos of Spinout, the unofficial Masterpiece-alike Sunstreaker from the Omnigonix group. These shots mostly concern how the figure compares with Masterpiece Sideswipe, both in robot and vehicle mode, but also show a comparison with Hot Rod for a little bit broader perspective of how this might blend in with official Masterpiece Autobots. You can click through to see the full album.
We have some color photos tonight of third party group "Second Chance"'s effort to make a Fall of Cybertron based Optimus Prime at something more like a Voyager scale. We're not sure how far along this is, but if it's at a color stage presumably this basically reflects the final product, and so seems to betray a noticeable lack of surface detailing. While a good effort is made to recreate the look of the design, it's unclear how much demand for an upsized iteration of this specific design there will be. Click through to check out the new photos!
From Mr Elljay on Weibo, we've got a nice assortment of photos showing off Pandinus, that absolutely huge, monstrous take on Scorponok from Maketoys. This item is very near to its release date, with an early testshot first having been shown off during the summer of 2015. These photos show a lot of nice detail of the large figure, including a side by side comparison to an original G1 Scorponok in robot mode. Keep reading to take a look at all the pictures!
It's always nice to see the unofficial toy world reach beyond G1, and newcomer Aplus toys seems poised to do exactly that. No details are available on A+01 MasterOrder yet, but what we do know is that he is based on Animated Dirt Boss! Keep reading for the photos as well as links to the group's Weibo and Facebook pages!
Having included a teaser with their reveal of an upgrade parts set for Combiner Wars Bruticus, we have tonight a series of photos from Transform Dream Wave of a prototype for a Defensor add-on set. While sharing a lot of the fundamental engineering with the Bruticus set, this features specific new parts for a Defensor chest plate that works similar to the stock parts in forming around the ladder in Hot Spot's robot and vehicle modes. But like Bruticus, the main selling point seems to be improved combiner hip jointing, just articulated hands and feet. Click through to check it out! Preorder yours at TFSource

Iron Factory is adding another entry to its assortment of slightly larger smaller figures. The new prototype revealed on their Weibo account is Lord Scorpion, a Scorponok figure made to basically match their Legends-size offerings. This is seen to have a base mode, as well as Headmaster functionality, packing in a lot of features in a relatively small package. EX-18 is described as the "comic version", apparently intended to homage the IDW appearances of Scorponok in particular. Keep reading to see the pictures!

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!
We have a nice series of shots from Alucardlee on Weibo showing Toufold, the Kup-alike in DX9 Toys' Legend-scale line. This seems to be doing the best it possibly can to capture the design aesthetic of G1 Kup's 80's-futuristic pickup truck design, though at this scale that is maybe not without its drawbacks. Nice to see in this set of photos is a sequential demonstration of how the transformation works to make this possible. Click through and take a look at the entire gallery!
