Toyworld's gigantic 20 inch tall Construction Combiner is now available for preorder at site sponsor TFSource! The first two parts, C01 Bulldozer and C02 Unearth, AKA Constructions Bonecrusher and Scavenger, are scheduled for December, with two parts scheduled each for January and February.

Via the Weibo page of Toyszone, we have a look at one more item on display from Planet X. The recolor of their Genesis, unofficial Omega Supreme inspired by War For Cybertron, Guardian is the Omega Sentinel equivalent in the familiar blue and white colors. The existence of this has been more or less known for a while, but if not our first look at a physical sample outright, it's the first we've had in a while! Given Genesis's pricepoint, troopbuilding Guardian may be out of the question, but it's probably still very welcome for completists. Click through to see both photos.
Badcube was showing at the China International Comics Festival as well, and we've got a few photos of their take on Sunstreaker. Seemingly at a very advanced stage of completion with full paint, while the broad strokes of Sunstreaker are present and represented, the smaller details do sadly look like they might need another pass or two. Only time and further photos will tell how this one will be received when it's actually released. Click through and take a look!
Generation Toy had its products on display at the China International Comic Festival, and in the process offered a first look at their third and fourth Constructicon figures, based on Bonecrusher and Scavenger. "Bulldozer" and "Navvy" can both be seen in their robot modes, and from the backside shots give the impression of holding everything needed to assume their respective arm modes. We also get to see a prototype of the full combined form (from behind) and the small Megatron bonus figure. Keep reading to have a look!
More from the China International Comics Festival, this time a display of Transformission's products, who have entered the world of unofficial products with MP-sized Stunticons. We've seen their Dead End and Breakdown analogues as prototypes before, but notable addition this time is lineart for a Drag Strip, with several noticeable engineering cues lifted from Classics Mirage. Art for Motormaster can also be seen, though with less specific borrowed design concepts in evidence. Click through to check it out!
Lots of third party goods have been shown off at the China International Comics Festival the last day or two, and the photos keep rolling in! Kicking off tonight, we have shots from Master Made showing prototypes for their next two figures in the SDT series based on Trypticon and Omega Supreme. Both are looking nice, but it's a bit of a curiosity how Apollo's transformation is actually going to work given the proportions it's rendered in! Keep reading to check out the photos.
Just in from TFSource. Here’s the MP scaled first figure from Toyworld's Devy Combiner series, the one with the video of the tracks moving!
TW also said the total height on Devy is more in the 50-55CM range/ 20-22”, just shy of 2 feet which sets him just below the height of G1 fort max when combined. More info to come as they’re still early in the development of this impressive piece.
Sighted on the TF Upgrader Facebook page, coming from the same Chinese toy show as the rest of the new prototypes of the past few days is TFC's Hades, perhaps better known as Liokaiser! Shown in front is core robot Leozack, whose nom de plausible-trademark-deniability is currently not known. Keep reading to see the image up close!
We have some more pictures to share from China International Comics Festival, as at a Planet X display, testshots of their next Fall of Cybertron-inspired Dinobot figures were on display. The Grimlock analogue had been seen as an earlier prototype build a little while back, and now stands in full vibrant testshot colors, still looking very nice. Meanwhile a plesiosaur based on obscure extra Dinobot Paddles was also on display in much more Dinobot-ish plastic colors, looking a bit closer to release! Click through to take a look.
Again coming from GRAVE on Weibo by way of TFW2005 from the China International Comics Festival, the first clear images of TFC's Seacons are now available! Potentially named Mentara and Cyberjaws, the two figures shown are believed to be the Skalor and Seawing parts of the Piranacon combiner team. Read on to see!
The second new figure spotted at the China International Comics Festival, TFW2005 and GRAVE of Weibo have posted images of Generation Toys' Tyrant! Tyrant is scaled to work with the company's Legends-scale Devastator, Gravity Builder, and by some reports is to be included when you order the complete Gravity Builder set from online retailers. Keep reading to see!
By way of TFW2005, Daim Choc and Weibo user GRAVE have posted images of the first prototype out of Garatron, a new third-party group! Gand of Devil G.o.D.-01 Thunderstorm is based, appropriately enough, on IDW's Stormbringer
version of Thunderwing as designed by Don Figueroa! Details on price, size, and release date are not currently available, but keep reading to see the photos!
Toy Scope on Facebook has posted a few new photos of the Maketoys unofficial Scorponok Pandinus, as well as a short review of the robot mode. As this is a testshot and still had a journey ahead of it, they apparently didn't have the opportunity to transform it, but the text indicates that the robot mode has a surprising degree of poseability given its overall size and bulk. We've got the photos mirrored, and a link to the review post, so click through and check it out!
