Earlier today some photos appeared on Weibo which show a new Megatron figure in the MP style. Claims are being made that this is a prototype for a new official Masterpiece Megatron - though at the moment there is nothing to substantiate this. All we know is that it's a Megatron that no Third Party group has yet taken credit for, and needs some revisions in the gun barrel area. Keep reading to see the photos!
With the recent teaser reveal of their figure they call Simba, KFC has quickly followed up with something a bit more substantial. The figure, a take on Victory Leo, is designed to dock with the official Masterpiece Star Saber to form Victory Saber, and the latest released photos show just that interaction!

Having flown a bit under the radar until now, newcomer third party group Toy Base revealed as far back as July their full color prototype for a Masterpiece-style take on Overlord. Called DoubleEvil, it's shown standing eye to eye with Masterpiece Star Saber. Displayed with dual Powermasters, as well as shown split in its two vehicle forms, it seems to check most of the boxes, with exception of any evident base mode. With both an evident Hasbro Generations version and another unofficial one from a prominent group coming, will the Overlord market be big enough to support all these different takes? Keep reading to see the photos!
Coming from the Facebook page of a group identifying as Toy Base, we have news and images of their upcoming product line of Masterpiece-scale figures. The figure currently designated as "G2" is a take on Generation 2's Laser Optimus Prime, with a height about equal to MP-10 Optimus. And it's no surprise that the reuse for this mold is Scourge, from 2001's Robots in Disguise, codenamed "Archenemy". Archenemy seems to be first on the schedule though, with the page stating a planned release window of November 2016. We have the pictures mirrored, so click through and take a look!
Unique Toys has just recently had their entry in to the small scale of unofficial transforming figures launch with Tom & Jerry - their takes on Weirdwolf and Chromedome. So building on that they've just revealed the next pair in the series, based on Hardhead and Skullcruncher! They're seen only as grey prototypes at the moment and look very early in design, but show the same aesthetic direction that Tom & Jerry started. No codenames are noted, but I'm personally hoping for Sylvester & Tweety to keep the theme going. Click through for pictures!
