Iron Factory has today unveiled Alleria, their version of Elita-1 which is a retool of their Arcee, Pink Assassin. As we understand it currently, the figure is to be included with the first production of EX14 Ultimate Commander - the Optimus based both on IDW comic designs and God Ginrai. With no additional plan for distribution known at this time, if this information is correct it would make Ultimate Commander of some added interest, not to mention value. We'll keep you updated as we learn more, and for now click through to see the photos of the new figure!
Toy reviewer Peaugh has posted some images from TFCon Chicago of MMC's new MTMTE-style Megatron! The figure's alt mode seems to be a large air- or spacecraft of some sort, with a choice of a more traditional Fusion Cannon or the jet's nose for arm-mounted weaponry. Unsurprisingly, it's in scale with their DJD series of figures. Keep reading to see!
On Facebook, Benscollectables has shared a small album of photos showing color samples of Toyworld's effort at Masterpiece-esque 1985 Seekers. The unofficial versions of Ramjet, Thrust, and Dirge look well designed to fit in with the likes of official MP Starscream and friends, while making sure the figures are suited to depict the characters. These are likely to fall under a lot of consideration as an alternative for the TakaraTomy conehead releases, already underway as a series of exclusives. Keep reading to see the whole batch!
So if you spend a lot of time staring at robot crotches - and we're not judging - you may have noticed that Titan Class Fortress Maximus is missing a certain... detail. If you really miss that red circle where the G1 toy housed the mechanism for its elevator, you'll be happy to know that DNA Design has got you covered. But that's not all the DK-04 kit contains, as you also get some new hip ratchets and a set of slippers that seem to add rocker ankles to Fort Max - and double as helipads for the alternate modes! Keep reading to have a look.
FT-19 Apache is a triple changing robot that stands 9.60 inches tall in robot mode. His two alternate modes are a helicopter and an armored vehicle. Fans may recognize this figure as another unofficial version of the Springer character. Fans Toys FT-19 Apache features several die-cast parts and comes armed with a blaster rifle and sword. This item is priced at $139.99 on pre-order to ship some time in June 2017. Order now at bigbadtoystore.com
Iron Factory has posted a new round of photos to their Weibo page of Lord Scorpion. The Legends-compatible(ish) sized take on Scorponok is shown in a great number of poses, demonstrating the figure's flexibility. The text of the post makes reference to a height of 16cm (just over 6 inches) and says that the bulk of the robot is expected to give it a feeling of greater largeness, seemingly acknowledging concerns about the actual height of the robot mode. Lord Scorpion's release has been pushed back a couple times, but hopefully a new batch of photos means we're getting close! Keep reading to take a look.

Butterfly Effect has gotten an advance sample of MMC's (very) long-awaited Carnifex, an Overlord figure styled after the character's appearance in the IDW comics. We get detailed looks at both vehicle components here, as well as an extensive viewing of the robot mode that emphasizes design details, as well as the face sculpt, and the intricately designed hands. With these pre-release samples making their way around now, it seems like it won't be long before a retail release finally happens!
Mr Elljay has a nice sampling of the displays of various other third party groups. Garatron has a color sample of Thunderstorm, their IDW-inspired Thunderwing, plus apparently two different Unicron prototypes. Planet X showed off a color sample of their Voyager size Fall of Cybertron Optimus, and Master Made has an SD style Scorponok that seems more than slightly inspired by the design of Pandinus! There's that and more to see in the album of mirrored photos - check it out below!
We've got new photos of Planet X's take on Fall of Cybertron Starscream tonight. Shared on Weibo by FaithfulTF, the roughly Voyager size figure tries to capture the details of the game model in a bit different way than the official Deluxe toy did a few years ago. Along with that, it features a large array of accessories, including what most every Starscream anymore ends up with: a crown. Is this something that has a place in your collection? Let us know, and check out the photos mirrored below!
Thanks to Mr Elljay who has shared via Weibo a series of photos from an event happening in China where third party groups are showing off their wares!

This is just a start to the new images we have coming through tonight, so click through to go ahead and get started on these!
Andrew Green on Twitter has gotten hold of an early sample of KFC Toys' Simba, an unofficial Victory Leo designed to complete the official Masterpiece Star Saber. These photos give a good overview of each mode, as well as showing off the combinations with Star Saber - a fusion which is said to weigh a full 4 pounds and amazingly can hold itself together! And as for the size of Victory Saber combined... well, we'll let the pictures tell the tale, and you can find that and more below - keep reading!
MakeToys shared a look at a new prototype they're working on right now on their Facebook page. The figure codenamed Downbeat is a Jazz for their Re:Master unofficial Masterpiece style figure series. Though obviously still at a somewhat early stage, Downbeat shows a simpler style than most other unofficial efforts with this character, resulting in a cleaner look. Whether that simplicity will itself put some possible buyers off will come down to individual taste. Full features, as well as release date and price are to be determined. Keep reading to see the full size picture!
FansProject has posted new images of the SP edition of Severo - their take on Grimlock - in his original Pre-Transformers Diaclone color scheme!
