Perfect Effect has announced that they're adding the Constructicons' guns to their PC-07 upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator! In addition, they've announced that both their PC-06 Devastator upgrades and PC-07 Constructicon upgrades should be compatibile with either the Takara or Hasbro releases - though presumably that's the biggest concern for PC-06, as PC-07 largely brings the Hasbro version up to speed with Takara's Unite Warriors UW04 version.

TFW2005 has posted new images found on Weibo of FansProject's Function-X6 figure, Knight! This reuse of the MADLAW mold represents the Masterforce character Sixknight, the Japanese G1 equivalent of Quickswitch. It's looking pretty nice in Sixknight's cooler color scheme. Keep reading to see!
Now that the figure is filtering out to stores this was inevitable, right? Perfect Effect's Japanese Twitter account has posted a set of images of a planned upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator!

Hero Hobby Toys has posted photos and specifications of their upcoming QA-01 City Captain figure! Based on Ultra Magnus and standing out the height of a Deluxe figure, this SD figure is pretty impressive, featuring full transformation without parts removal, a gun that turns into a hammer, launching rockets, and more! Keep reading for more details.

One of the things we were sad about this past winter was the Play With This Too Kickstarter coming so close to its goal but not quite hitting the final stretch. We had a series of constructive criticisms for them,
which we wrote with a postscript urging that they should absolutely
try again. And it looks like it's happening! We've got some photos of former stretch goal Boneyard, and a teaser for the Kickstarter "Remix" coming soon. Keep reading!
Diecast from RFC has moved on from TFC's room to the TheChosenPrime/GetRightRobot BotCon event at Pheasant Run Resort! On display were a number of third-party toys and test shots in various states of completion. Particularly worth noting is that PlayWithThisToo's Desolataur was on display - good to see they haven't given up after the very near miss of their initial Kickstarter! Keep reading to see diecast's photos, and check back later for ExVee's!
with new photos courtesy of ExVee! Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron gave us a heads-up on a TFSource exclusive seen at their room at the Pheasant Run resort in St. Charles! It's a Marvel Comics-themed two pack of Hegemon and Orlon - who I thought was named "Orion," but that's clearly an L on the box. This set is limited to 200 pieces and can be seen at site sponsor TFSource's room 816 for the price of $220. Keep reading to see the photos!
Sometime last night when the Tokyo Toy Show and BotCon floodgates began to open, MakeToys decided to join in and add test shot photos of three of their upcoming figures! MCTM-04C Vulcan is the core piece of Guardia, AKA Hot Spot of the Protectobots! Meanwhile MTRM-03 and -05 are Hellfire and Wrestle, the ReMaster Series Masterpiece-scaled versions of Inferno and Grapple! Keep reading to see all three!
While not strictly Transformers-related, it's still pretty fascinating: photos are surfacing on Weibo (by way of Twitter) of a Tokyo Toy Show display that appears to show a Masterpiece-style take on the Diaclone figure Diabattles, one of the more sci-fi themed Diaclone figures that was not selected to become a Transformer. Perhaps even more interesting is the inclusion of Masterpiece-styled Diaclone pilots!
First photos after the jump!
Another image of the dinosaur skull shield went out today. According to Play With This Too's Facebook page the full figure reveal will come Thursday night at a pre-BotCon party.
I also noticed that the image is tagged #boneyard on Tumblr. As you may recall Boneyard was one of the late stretch goal figures from the Kickstarter, and was one a lot of people said they should have started with. Perhaps it's been bumped up the design ladder and has new accessories?

Newcomer to the Third Party scene Generation Toy has uploaded a substantial Facebook gallery of their upcoming debut figure, GT-1 Gravity Builder! Based on G1 Devastator, the set is touted as scaling with Warbotron at 38 centimeters tall. The figures look good, but Generation Toy must be pretty confident to enter the field with a new Devastator with two well-respected 3P takes on the character in existence... to say nothing of Hasbro's Combiner Wars Titan-class figure. Keep reading for photos!
