Zenith Forge updated their Facebook with new test shot images for their ZF-002 set for the first Beast Hunters Voyager Optimus Prime (which we reviewed here
last year). The set includes a large gatling cannon, and a new faceplated head to replace the Kenneriffic grimaced face the toy comes with. Take note, the colors shown are not final, though with exception of missing paint applications I think it looks pretty close. Click here

Thanks to BigBadToyStore, we have new prototype photos of the two pack Bluster and Trench from Mech Ideas, representing the Huffer and Pipes character designs from Transformers Animated.

RobotKingdom has posted a new set of photos of the latest testshot of Unique Toys' Soundmixer figure. This take on Blaster is still without the armor advertised in the original materials, but is said to still be under development. While the rifle cleverly transforms in to a cassette shape for staorage, we're informed Soundmixer does not hold normal Transformer or third party microcassette toys, unfortunately. Click here

Fansproject Core has posted a new story segment on their website, detailing Defender having an evil doppleganger. The most obvious interpretation of this would be that FPC is planning a reuse of the Warbot Defender "not-Springer" figure, which while having been reissued once or twice in its original colors has never been used otherwise.

First images have been released of the latest figure based on the Mugan Scope design from Keith's Fantasy Club. As promised leading up to the release of MC-20, this recolor and remold is based on Scalpel, at least as much as a bipedal robot design can be based on the insect-like movie character. Featuring a new head, chest piece and alternate accessories, this is more than a simple color swap. The images for now are just CGI renders but should be indicative of the final product due for release in January. See all the images below. bigbadtoystore.com
