Samuel Pang on Facebook has decided to address a question likely on the minds of many collectors who've been after Headmaster-type figures over the last few years: Now that we have official versions in Titans Return, how will they compare to the unofficial effort up to now?
Well, at least in the case of the Fansproject Function X line, we have one answer. In these photos we can see Hardhead completing the group of core Autobot Headmasters... and Hardhead is about a head short. But stylistically he may not be far off.

Iron Factory posted to Weibo today, offering up a batch of new photos of Soul Reaper. This figure is based on the Transformers Victory character Black Shadow, albeit by way of the Generations Deluxe toy rather than the original Pretender version. But if anything, this Legends-scale figure seems to be doing everything it can to upstage its larger official counterpart, but perhaps that's easier to do when approaching a common design a few years after its release? Keep reading to take a look at the pictures.
Fresh off their Weibo page is a first look at another upcoming figure from TFC Toys in their Poseidon series. The fifth not-Seacon is Deathclaw, a take on Nautilator seen as a grey prototype piece. The figure looks well realized in both modes, and even features some little extras like an "attack mode" for the robot replacing the hands with big claws. With this, the end of the Poseidon project is actually almost in sight - only one figure to get an "official" debut before it's down to just waiting for them to go up for sale.

Just announced on their facebook page, is the MTCD-01 Striker Manus Reveal Cross Dimension Series Unofficial Optimus Prime figure from Maketoys.
The figure appears to take a page from the Revoltech figure with ultra-articulation incorporated to offer the kind of range of motion we don't normally see.
He's also going to have some nice weapons to go with, including the signature fusion cannon and what looks to be an axe-blade weapon.
By way of a magazine scan we have a first look at a new upcoming product from Toyworld. Blues is their take on Jazz in the Masterpiece style. This attempt seems more generally toy-influenced than J4ZZ, the other MP-alike not-Jazz to come on the scene recently. The prototype is shown in height comparison with MP Tracks, as well as showing off a range of accessories including different weapon options, and speaker parts. These and the lack of door wings seem the most notable media influence on the figure. The scan seems to indicate an October release. keep reading to have a look!
Following the reveal of their surprisingly brazen code-naming of their unofficial Jazz product, we have some interesting new photos of "J4ZZ", including a side by side with Generations "Reveal The Shield" Jazz. Seen right next to each other it's hard not to feel that J4ZZ ...borrows... heavily from this Jazz's engineering, though we admit at least some of that must simply come down to inevitable similarity given both are closely emulating one base design. Check out the photos below to see for yourself!
Iron Factory has posted to Weibo showing a quick few new pictures of the prototypes for an upcoming two pack of their Legends scale figures. The set currently known as "Double Edge Blade" is a pair of figures based on Drift, and his Decepticon identity of Deadlock. The figures are shown in robot modes only, but give a look at the differences that distinguish them, including signature weapons. We have the photos mirrored for easy viewing, so keep reading to take a look!
Crash Hog and Dumpyard each stand 8.25” in robot mode and transform into motorcycles. They are made of ABS plastic with rubber tire pikes and die-cast feet and thighs. Chests, heads, and arms are exchangeable between the two to form new robots.
This set is priced at $169.99 USD with shipping expected in July 2016. You can order these figures separately and as a set now at bigbadtoystore.com
Before Titans Return Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Prime even sees release, Perfect Effect acts to bring us the missing piece of the puzzle: a Godbomber/Apex Armor to combine with! PC-15, an extension of the Perfect Combiner upgrade series, is only seen in Second Trailer mode, but sports larger versions of the PMOP guns as well as God Bomber's trademark big gun. Keep reading to see the photo!
Having seen preproduction images for a while now, it looks like Spark Toys unofficial Optimus Prime figure has started sneaking out to retail. The figure is based on the Dreamwave The War Within
series, depicting a pre-Earth Cybertronian form.
While the pictures we have courtesy of Hau Chi Lee use Generations (2010) Blurr as a scale reference, we understand that this figure is also comparable in height to MP-10 Optimus Prime, although that comparison is not shown here. Click through now to see more of this big, bulky figure!
Aplus Toys has posted the first photo of their A+02 Mudmouth! The followup to their A+01 MasterOrder, who of course was Dirt Boss from Transformers Animated,
Mudmouth is Mixmaster! No details on pricing or release are given, but the first prototype photo of the figure looks pretty good, and seems to sport an articulated mouth. Keep reading to see!
X-Transbots has posted new photos of their Masterpiece-esque take on Cyclonus, the MX-III Eligos. Like Andras before it, Eligos is firmly rooted in cartoon styling for the bulk of the figure - and we mean that literally too, just look at the height of it next to Shockwave! It even includes a tiny articulated Galvatron to ride in the cockpit to emulate the original Transformers: The Movie.
In addition, it does include a Great Sword as a nod to IDW's Cyclonus despite this sharing nothing else with that interpretation. The last couple photos are an unpainted piece, but the rest should represent the intended deco. Keep reading to see!
Coming to us from TFC Toys on Weibo we have new pictures showing a full color sample of Cyberjaw, the second unit to the Poseidon unofficial Piranacon combiner. Included with this small album of photos is a shot of Cyberjaw connected to the "gun stand" formed from the combiner foot part, emulating the giant Targetmaster functionality of the original official toy. The images all all mirrored below, so keep reading for more!
Thanks to "phoenix" on Weibo, we have a look at the complete combined form of TFC's Poseidon, taken from the instructions for team member Big Bite. The unofficial Seacon combiner is one of two major projects TFC is working on at the moment, and this may in fact be our first look at the full combined form in color. Thanks to the unified color scheme and some good visual design work, Poseidon assembled looks like a single solid unit in this depiction! You can check out this image plus several more pages from the instructions mirrored below.
Thanks to the Weibo page of Guanchengphoto we've got a number of excellent photos showing off one of the upcoming TransformMission "Auto Samurai" figures. This one is based on Wildrider, and can be seen in these photos showing off the detail and poseability of its robot mode, and the styling of the vehicle form which takes heavily
after modern Ferrari body designs.
We reported a little while back that TransformMission wanted to do further revisions to these figures, and we're not sure if these photos reflect such changes, but either way it's looking nice. Click through tos ee more!
