Meteor Operation has presented us with several photos of a new third party product. Well known accessory maker Dr. Wu has branched off and formed Dr. Q, which for the moment seems to be engaging in making SD-style figures of Transformers characters. The first example is an Optimus and Grimlock based on the G1 designs, but made for Optimus to ride Grimlock as in the movies. We don't have any release information yet, but for now you can keep reading to check out the photos!

After showing off a resin prototype piece much earlier this year, Mega Steel has broken silence and come up with new photos showing their toy based on Don Figueroa's Megatron design from the IDW "Stormbringer" miniseries.
