We just recently saw photos showing final or near-final samples of Generation Toy's first two unofficial Constructicon figures which already painted both in a favorable light. Today we have more photos from guanchengphoto on Weibo which go to even greater lengths in making these figures really stand out and look great. It's debatable how necessary these are at this point, but if you're still looking for that perfect Devastator, these are sure giving it a good try! Click through for the mirrored photos.
On their Facebook page, Voodoo Robots has posted a few new photos showing that their Ratchet-derived figure Salus is close to being ready to head out for sale. While the images note final colors may vary still, it has a very complete looking deco and is presenting quite a bit more strongly than the testshots seen at Botcon this summer. Keep reading to check it out!
It is truly the age of combiners, as now to balance the scales tipping towards the various Devastators, we have a new player turning up to give Menasor a shot. TransFormMission has posted prototype photos of Breakdown and Wildrider, showing them in robot forms in some detail, and vehicle forms in various groupings. They also provided a size comparison to Masterpiece Sideswipe to give a sense of the intended scale. A largely greyed over diagram of their intended Menasor was posted as well, which we've enhanced for better visibility. Click through to see it all!
Mastermind Creations has posted photos of a black and purple redeco of their main five Feral rex figures to their Facebook page, announcing them as an exclusive set to be sold at STGCC, the Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention, taking place on September 12 and 13. No pricing is mentioned currently, but between the original prices and being a limited run exclusive, we can start to image. As far as distribution outside the convention, it will likely depend on what stock is left afterward. Keep reading to check out the photos.
Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook again offers a set of excellent photos. This time looking at the just-released Unite Warriors Menasor wearing the Perfect Combiner PC-01 hands and feet and the PC-04 body kit. Besides showing how the parts look on the Takara release, they do a great job of demonstrating just what kind of mobility Menasor can have using the parts. If you've been on the fence about either upgrade, these might be what sells you. Click through to see it yourself!
From the Facebook page of Genmon Photo Vault, we've got a great look at the color testshot of Boost, X-Transbots' take on Windcharger. Though this example is said to be without any paint work, it's already looking quite nice, and the photos go through a nice overview including a step-by-step look at how the arms and legs transform, plus size comparisons with similar figures. There's also a couple quick glimpses of a testshot of Hatch - the unofficial Tailgate sharing this mold. Click through to check it out!
Toyworld has released new photos showing off a fully assembled copy of their dinosaur combiner. Having been seen previously as generally incomplete assemblies and without production colors, this is our first real look at the intended outcome of Toyworld's Dinobot project, and it certainly is something! We'll have to wait to see if other angles change the perception, but at the moment it's very much living up to the legacy of Dinobot combiners. To see it for yourself, click through and check out the full image.
Generation Toy has added a new post on their Weibo page showing off what seems to be finalized deco copies of their first two Gravity Builder figures. Seen recently as color testshots, the figures now have a much more complete finish with necessary paint detail added. The text of the post also suggests GT-1A might have been renamed from "Scraper" to the less-obvious "Forklift Truck", though machine translation is hardly the most reliable source for this.

Coming from Moon_Base_TF on Twitter, we have a few photos showing off a complete Optimus Maximus, notably giving us an early look at the combiner that very few have managed to assemble so far. But beyond that, it's also shown using the white hands and feet from Perfect Effect's PC-05 set, and the Menasor torso add-on from PC-04. Both things work together to make a pretty nice looking finalized combined form. We've got the shots mirrored, so keep reading and take a look!
From Warbotron we have a few photos showing a testshot phase copy of the Grimlock figure that will be released in association with their take on the Technobots. To be presented as a model kit, much like the Shockwave for Warbotron's Bruticus-analogue, the final colors will surely be more consistent with Grimlock's normal colors, though this testshot's purple and greens are hardly unattractive!

An entertaining image from 539Designs, the same artist from whom our looks at upcoming X-Transbot figures Abaddon and Dante came today has an amusing extra piece on their DeviantArt account. Made just for fun is a piece depicting a blue and orange Apollyon, referencing colors that Hasbro at one time tried to use to make a reissue of G1 Megatron possible in the days of the Commemorative Series line at Toys R Us. This isn't meant to indicate a recolor of the figure, though as 533Designs says, stranger things have happened. Keep reading to have a look at this entertaining homage piece.
Following DX9's reveal earlier today, an X-Transbots designer has posted the first look at that group's planned Galvatron figure to accompany the previously seen Scourge and Cyclonus-alikes. This figure's existence isn't much surprise considering that, but the forced timing of the reveal does little to help in the perception of a lot of redundancy and copying in the third party scene lately. But more options are always better, and we'll be interested to see what sets each Galvatron apart. Click through to check out the CG render.
TF Expo is happening in Kansas this weekend, and Captured Prey is attending with a selection of testshot and early sample items. Items from Mastermind Creations, Fansproject, and Fans Toys are among what they've already shown previews of on their Facebook page, giving us new looks at things like Commotus, and the Fans Toys take on Bombshell. Seen also is a first look at one of the members of Fansproject's take on Dino King, which was unveiled at TFCon last month. Keep reading to check out the photos - we expect to see more over the weekend too, so keep watching!
Generation Toys has released a few images showing the first two figures from their unofficial Devastator, representing Mixmaster and Scrapper. "Mixer Truck" and "Scraper" can be seen in both modes, as well as compared to Masterpiece Red Alert and Wheeljack to get an idea of the scale. It's unclear if this represents a full final deco, or if changes might occur before these start heading for release. Click through and check out the mirrored photos.
As promised recently, Play With This Too has their first printed prototype of Jetstrike, their figure inspired by Starscream's Pretender shell. Not showing any major differences from the render seen previously, the new photos demonstrate the combination options among the various accessories, as well as it's own version of the "exploded" view of the individual unassembled parts laid out to show the construction of the figure body. There's lots of photos, so click through and check them out!
