Mastermind Creations have updated their Facebook page showing their upcoming Spartan figure based on Impactor - especially the character's appearance in IDW comics - with a slightly tweaked deco in response to fan feedback. Now sporting a muted yellow color, we can see the toy in what looks to be a full final deco, and it's looking pretty fantastic! We've got the photos mirrored, so keep reading and take a look!
The Action Robo Facebook page has put up some shots of a display testshot of Gun Dog, the Masterpiece-styled Hound by MakeToys. At this stage the figure seems to be sporting its final plastic colors, and is just waiting for someone to come at it with a paint brush to realize the final details. MakeToys is recognizing proper scaling, as Gun Dog can be seen a fair bit shorter than Cupola, keeping it on par with the official MPs of the 84-85 Autobot Cars. Click through and take a look!
Group ToyMecha has seemingly launched with photos of a prototype figure based on Punch/Counterpunch, targeting the Masterpiece scale. Seen in comparison with the official Tigertrack, the currently unnamed double-agent is similar in height range with MakeToys' Cupola/Not-Chromedome. We can only glimpse the figure's alternate robot mode so far, but otherwise we're given a decent look at the design. Click through to check out the photos!
Over on their Facebook page, BadCube has published a piece of concept art for "Sunsurge", their take in a Masterpiece-alike Sunstreaker, carrying on from their increasingly popular offerings like Wardog/Warpath and the Insecticon "Evil Bug Corps". They're strongly indicating there will be more of this to be seen at TFCon Toronto later this month, so fans who've been waiting for a Masterpiece option on this character ought to keep watch on this one!

Robot Kingdom has just updated their Facebook page with copies of the Perfect Effect Devastator upgrade images, noting that preorders for them will begin next week. But more importantly it looks like they're also verifying the distribution of parts. According to their information, PC-06 will include the Devastator specific parts and vehicle upgrades, while PC-07 will feature just the Constructicon forearm addons. Pricing remains to be seen, but at least it looks like you'll have the chance to choose what extent of upgrades you want to apply.
DX9, the alter ego of Unique Toys, take another swing at a Transformers Masterpiece-scaled robot with D06 Carry, a toy paying homage to the Autobots’ post-Optimus leader, Rodimus Prime. DX9 have been doing very well of late, their Invisible figure was superb, Chigurh was a recent favourite of mine, their War in Pocket line is blossoming and now they take a hugely ambitious stab at an all-in-one Generation 1 styled Rodimus Prime, inspired by the anime stylings of Japanese art group Studio Ox. (keep reading for sample images and a link to the blog!)
Sponsor TFSource has added several images to their Facebook page showing the latest updates to Perfect Effect's Perfect Combiner accessory line. Now seen in full color and paint, the body kits for Superion and Menasor look like they're almost ready to add to the combiner figures - and add a lot, at least in Menasor's case! The photos include a multi-stage upgrade sequence display for both combiners to show exactly what you're getting, too. Keep reading to have a look.
From a special early access to the Agabyss third party event taking place in the Hilton Garden Inn near the location of Botcon, we've got the first look at a plastic testshot stage copy of the Maketoys Pandinus figure, their massive, monstrous Scorponok-based figure. While not in final colors, this is a great step forward from the previous resin hardcopies, and it's suggested the figure may be released by year's end. We also have a look at MakeToys' Visualizer, the Masterpiece style Reflector in production color. Click through and have a look!
Just back from Thursday night at the Botcon location, we've got photos from the Renderform room party of displayed test shot and near-final pieces from several third party groups. Along with possibly a first look at the backside of DX9's Carry in robot mode, plus Iron Factory Dinobots characters, MMC Spartan, and more! For the third party inclined, there's a lot of pieces upcoming and they look mighty nice. Click through and check it out!
Last week we saw John DeLuna's Dystopia in its robot mode, but alas the alternate modes were left out. Having had some time now to change modes on the rather large figure, John's back with more than 20 photos of Dystopia in ship and base modes. With a couple of small Transformers on board for point of reference, well, there's no denying Dystopia lays out to cover a respectable area when it's not being a robot. Click through to check out the photos!
Not long after showing off their fully painted Cupola figure, Maketoys has posted a new product page showing a prototype piece for their figure Iron Will, based on the Headmaster Hardhead. The pictures show this figure in both modes, as well as showing that Iron Will and Cupola's head-robot figures can be comfortably seated in Cupola's car mode. Presumably a Brainstorm or High Brow may not be far behind, but personally I'd be more interested to see Decepticon headmasters start seeing this treatment. Keep reading for the pictures!
Maketoys has just tweeted a new photo of their figure Cupola, the start of a series of Masterpiece-style toys. Based on G1 Chromedome, it favors very strongly the original toy and classic media designs for the character, in keeping with the current angle of official Masterpiece products. Notably this is the first time we've seen the figure in full production deco, and the tweet notes that preorders for this item will start soon. Click through to have a look!
Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna, we have a set of great out of box photos of Dystopia, the Zone-inspired recolor of their Utopia Metroplex-alike. As John himself points out over the course of the tweets, the identical design is helped greatly by the addition of Metrotitan's colors, and these photos make the massive (and expensive) figure look super appealing! Click through to see the photos mirrored, and few of the relevant comment tweets embedded as well.
Forums member gema has stopped by to share a quick review of MMC's Salvia Prominon, currently the last iteration of Mastermind Creations' female robot mold that originated as an unofficial take on Arcee and has since stood as several distinct releases. Along with numerous photos, gema shares thoughts on the changes to the figure versus earlier releases. Click through and check it out!
