Robot Kingdom has posted a video of X2Toys' upcoming Firing Pin figure (based on onetime Wreckers leader Impactor) which features a working springloaded pellet cannon, complete with loading system and hopper for semi-automatic fire.

weapons- simply fill it, slide it over the hopper, and the gun is loaded. Keep reading to see the video, plus renders and in-progress photos!
Fansproject has rendered transformation demonstration videos of upcoming entries into their Function-X series meant to represent Headmasters Hardhead, Apeface and Highbrow.

Soon after the excellent Boosticus stop motion, we now have a short featuring X-Transbots' MP-Minis Stax and Krank, interacting with other Masterpiece figures in a papercraft Autobot Headquarters environment. This is another high quality stop motion piece and definitely worth checking out. See the video embedded below!
X-Transbots has posted a video on their Facebook page showing a fantastic stop motion recreation of the the assembly of Bruticus in Fall of Cybertron, using the EchoTF Boosticus upgrade kit to fill in the toy's gaps. We don't get stop motion with Transformers a lot, and this one is done really well. Check out the quick video clip below!
I saw this appear on Youtube, so I thought I'd let everyone else know... I wasn't even aware they did a third party panel. Starts with talking about how you make 3PT, then goes into questions, then slides of some upcoming products. Watch the two part videos below for the full view of the Charticon 2013 Third Party panel videos.
Thanks to Christopher Santiago who has posted some information about a problem with the TFC Toys Uranos F4 Phantom: "Just got my tfc uranos f4 phantom the other day. There seems to be a problem with the hip rachets because it just clicked a few times then eventually began to squeak now. I think the rachets are chewing the hip connections and the left tip of the wing on mine were it folds is misaligned thus not being able to fold completely compared to the right one. Hope you could address these issues as with what you did with hercules. I am a big fan of your products. More power. Thanks" Watch Christopher's video for the full details below.
