From guanchengphoto on Weibo we have some very nice photos of a color product sample for DX9's Leah, the Arcee-derived figure in their War in Pocket Legends-scale figure line. The photos demonstrate the figure's great degree of poseability (no doubt helped by its small display stand) as well as how it transforms in to a surprisingly solid looking vehicle form! We have the photos mirrored, so keep reading and have a look.
We have some new pictures tonight showing another in the long line of uncolored third party test shots. These images, said to be from Toyworld, show a Masterpiece scale figure based on Springer. This carries on the current trend of new unofficial renditions of the triplechangers in general, which is at least something of a break from, say, Devastators. This Springer-alike is only seen as a robot, but we do get a comparison next to MP Bumblebee so you can see it's ready to stand tall among the real Masterpieces. Click through to see for yourself!
In a surprising move, MakeToys has created a smartphone app dedicated to their line of unofficial Transformers products. Promising a full figure library, an instruction manual archive, and updates on where and how to get exclusive figures, this app sounds as though it could be a real boon to dedicated MakeToys collectors.

U.Nem Studios on Facebook has brought us a pair of new photos giving a very good look at a color sample of Carnifex, the very (very) long-awaited IDW Overlord-inspired figure from Mastermind Creations. The Decepticon butcher is shown front and back in robot mode, giving a good look at its details, now brought out in full color. One would presume this huge figure - eye-to-eye with large Masterpieces like Star Saber and Ultra Magnus - should be close to release finally, but only time will tell that. And only time will tell what price tag will be attached! Keep reading for the photos.
The Cyber City Con display images keep rolling in, and up next via the Mastermind Creations Facebook page is Dicamus! This is the MMC take on G1 Roadbuster, and while the character has gotten a decent amount of attention both official and otherwise, this one brings a little bit more comics-styled, bulkier appearance to the character. This base mold is also going to be shared with Titanika, MMC's unofficial Vehicon Strika, so if Roadbuster's not quite up your alley, there will be at least one more option.

By way of Toy Dojo and Paik4Life on Facebook, we have some looks at upcoming figures from Mastermind Creations. These were on display this weekend at Cyber City in San Antonio, giving us our first looks at Carnifex (not Overlord) including its two vehicle mode components, the figure based on DJD member Tarn, Titanika, a reimagining of Strika from Beast Machines, and even more. Besides pictures of Carnifex and not-Tarn, we have a video embedded below showing more of the display. Keep reading to check out everything!
Was Generations Chop Shop just not doing it for you on his own? No, I don't mean the Skrapnel recolor, I mean the tiny little Targetmaster Beetle Scissors accessory figure. If you just have to have more Insecticons at that specific scale, Dr Wu has you covered! On Weibo, a render was shown presenting takes on Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel as the Micro Insect Army set. It is perhaps a nice move for people who want matching Insecticon sets, but wouldn't going for Chop Shop's actual team of the Deluxe Insecticons
have been more appropriate? Click through to take a look at the image!
From their Weibo page we have some new looks at the first two figures from TransformMission's Masterpiece-scaled unofficial Stunticons. These pictures show the Breakdown and Wildrider analogues in plastic and paint colors for the first time. The text in the post notes that some deco tweaks are planned - and likewise the molds themselves apparently need modifications, and so it seems the release of these figures will be delayed for a while in order to get these issues sorted out. You can see the mirrored pictures below in the full post!
During the weekend of Botcon 2015, attendees had the opportunity to see a testshot of Pandinus, the giant unofficial Scorponok by Maketoys at an offsite third party event, so some of us already have a strong grasp on just how big this figure is. But for everyone else it might be a little hard to comprehend. Thankfully, user shiyitan on 78dm.net's forum has posted a useful side by side, showing Pandinus next to Titan Class Combiner Wars Devastator. While not quite face to face, Pandinus has a great deal more volume, showing its true hugeness. Keep reading to see for yourself!
DX9 has shared some pictures from a small display exhibit of their upcoming items on Weibo. Notably this gives us a nice look at a color sample of their Gewalt figure, a Masterpiece-esque take on G1 Blitzwing. Though it's only seen in robot mode, it seems to favor the cartoon rather strongly. Some of the DX9's smaller items were also shown, including Mightron/Megatron, Leah/Arcee, Toufold/Kup and apparently the three pack versions of their Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge. Keep reading to check it all out!
Having included a teaser with their reveal of an upgrade parts set for Combiner Wars Bruticus, we have tonight a series of photos from Transform Dream Wave of a prototype for a Defensor add-on set. While sharing a lot of the fundamental engineering with the Bruticus set, this features specific new parts for a Defensor chest plate that works similar to the stock parts in forming around the ladder in Hot Spot's robot and vehicle modes. But like Bruticus, the main selling point seems to be improved combiner hip jointing, just articulated hands and feet. Click through to check it out! Preorder yours at TFSource
Iron Factory is adding another entry to its assortment of slightly larger smaller figures. The new prototype revealed on their Weibo account is Lord Scorpion, a Scorponok figure made to basically match their Legends-size offerings. This is seen to have a base mode, as well as Headmaster functionality, packing in a lot of features in a relatively small package. EX-18 is described as the "comic version", apparently intended to homage the IDW appearances of Scorponok in particular. Keep reading to see the pictures!
We have a nice series of shots from Alucardlee on Weibo showing Toufold, the Kup-alike in DX9 Toys' Legend-scale line. This seems to be doing the best it possibly can to capture the design aesthetic of G1 Kup's 80's-futuristic pickup truck design, though at this scale that is maybe not without its drawbacks. Nice to see in this set of photos is a sequential demonstration of how the transformation works to make this possible. Click through and take a look at the entire gallery!
Alucardlee has posted to Weibo showing off a full color sample of Leah, the Arcee analogue from the DX9 War in Pocket series of unofficial Legends scale figures. This small scale figure seems to follow the general range of tricks most Arcees use - both official and unofficial - to make a transformation work with this robot styling. Leah is also seen to have a small baseplate to make the car mode "float" and help stabilize some robot poses. Keep reading to see all the photos!
It looks like a new competitor in the realm of Combiner Wars upgrade add ons has emerged. TDW, Transform Dream Wave (presumably unrelated to that other Dreamwave) has appeared with prototype images for a comprehensive system of upgrade parts for Combiner Wars Bruticus. The kit, marked with an intended price of about $50 includes poseable hands, new feet, combiner chest plate and weapon modifications, as well as new hip joint pieces for Onslaught to change how the combiner's legs work. And a Defensor version is teased as well. Click through to take a look!
