It looks like FansHobby's Gunfighter II (G2 Laser Optimus) is getting a fair bit of attention this week. FansHobby have posted a quick gallery of the current testshot, showing the poseability and accessories primarily. They note that at least some of these images are partially Photoshopped to represent the intended final deco, due to the recently highlighted design alterations delaying their ability to have their factory prepare them a deco proof sample right now. But most of the photos seem to clearly depict the plastic-colors testshot with no extra colors added anyway. Gunfighter II is expected to release in June. Keep reading for the mirrored gallery!
The Perfect Effect Origin Leonidas figure stands about 9" (23cm) tall in robot mode and contains die-cast parts. This fierce transforming beast changes from a robot warrior into a lion and boasts over 60 points of articulation.
Fanshobby has posted some new pictures to their Facebook page, showing the latest full color testshot of Gunfighter II, the Optimus Prime recolor of their Scourge/Black Convoy figure, Arch Enemy. Gunfighter II shows some of the minor revisions now that Fanshobby highlighted recently, such as the modified chest panels. Also new to this round of photography is a showing of the two guns this release will come with: both a classic G1 Optimus rifle, and the double barrel Laser Prime gun, depicted here as a prototype while the mold for it is being worked on.

The Facebook page TF Robots has shared several photos showing an early prototype for what's reported as a new project from Unique Toys. Currently only identified as Y-05, the figure represents Lockdown from Age of Extinction. This is believed to be roughly Leader scale, and from the pictures is intended to include quite a bit in the way of accessories - including one of the attack dog units seen on Lockdown's ship. The robot shows little immediate sign of how it will transform, but the absence of backside images could suggest a lot of panels on the rear. We've got all the images below, keep reading to see!
DX9 has posted on Facebook, sharing galleries for their three War In Pocket series small scale Conehead figures. X30, based on Ramjet, X31 based on Dirge, and X32 based on Thrust. There's almost 50 photos of these three figures, shown individually in each of their respective modes, as well as some group shots - including a couple featuring Masterpiece Thrust with his little cousins. You can find all the photos mirrored in our gallery below!
Toyworld has shared out a few new photos featuring the early installments of their massive scale unofficial Bruticus project. The analogues of Blastoff and Vortex are first up, with these samples apparently depicting the final colors and deco the figures will be released in. We also get a look at them with Maketoys Despotron to show their robot mode scale, plus a look at the combined not-Bruticus comprised of earlier testshots and prototypes. We've got it all mirrored below, check it out!
The Fans Toys Grinder figures will be offerd in 3 different recolors including FT-08D Cartoon, FT-08G Blue G2 and FT-08X Movie colors. The FT-08 Grinder Iron Dibots No.5 figures. Like the originals changes from robot to T-rex and includes a sword accessory. Read on to see the images of them all with more details.
Over on Weibo, Dr Wu has posted new images of another add-on/accessory kit. The Ninjia upgrade is made for Titans Return Sixshot, and includes a pair of swords with storage clips, gap-fillers for the rifles, and a restyled helmet replacement. The filler parts for the guns cover the Titan Master seat spaces, but remain easily removed and positioned elsewhere in the combined rifle so no functionality is lost. We have a selection of photos in our gallery, including some older prototype shots. Click through to have a look!
In what may be turning in to a not-unwelcome trend for FansHobby, we have a new list of design tweaks and remolds for one of their upcoming releases. Gunfighter 2, the Optimus Prime-equivalent recolor of their Arch Enemy Scoure/Black Convoy is apparently having a trip back to the design stage to get some new unique parts added. Though none seem to affect the basic functioning of the figure, they add in various ways to the small details of the robot and vehicle modes. A series of before and after images was released, which you can find in our gallery below!
This weekend in China, a toy show took place that saw quite a number of our usual suspect unofficial robot makers displaying their products. Notables include a look at Toyworld's Coolsville, another of the MP-alike Not-Jazzes, Galaxy Meteor from Maketoys, which is an MP-ish take on Cybertron Starscream. Iron Factory had their seekers out, including prototypes for Conehead versions. And we get a look at one of the many, many ...many... unofficial Springers in the Masterpiece style, from OpenPlay. You can find photos of these and more in the gallery below, as well as photographer credits. Keep reading!
It's a surprise to no one at all, Iron Factory has finally revealed the Black Zarak version of their unofficial Scorponok figure, Lord Scorpion. This Dark Matter Version adds the distinctive spear weapon and redesigned helmet to the figure, which along with the redeco makes a good image of Black Zarak. As we eventually learned, Lord Scorpion is only about as big as a chunky Deluxe, but it's hard to deny how attractive this release is - especially if you have a small-scale figure shelf to add it to!

Site Sponsor TFSource has posted images for Generation Toy's GT-05 Leaders set! This set, priced at $69.99 and due between April and May, features Legends-scale renditions of G1 Optimus Prime and Megatron - both of which look really good and quite poseable for their size. Keep reading to see!
Just out from Planet X is the PX-12 Fatum. Fans of the Fall of Cybertron games will appreciate this unofficial render of the Thundercracker character that is said to offered in deluxe packaging.
Transforming from fighter jets to a fierce battling robots, the Planet X Fatum and Querella figures come armed with a mace and double rifle blaster weapons.
Over on Sixo's Transformers Photo Library on Facebook, talented photographer Sixo has treated us to some interesting images of Phoenix, coming very soon from Fanstoys to fill that (extremely large) empty Skyfire shaped hole on your Masterpiece shelf. Three of the photos in particular concern the comparative size of Phoenix, and ...well, just look at how far up Combiner Wars Titan Class
Devastator this comes! We've mirrored the relevant photos, and keep reading to find a link to a larger gallery at Sixo's Facebook page!
928 Toys Laboratory on Facebook has shared a nice little gallery of MMC's Continuum upgrade kit for their unofficial Overlord figure Carnifex.

We've mirrored a selection of the photos below, so you can click through to find those and a link back to the original posting.
