Maketoys gave an update today as to the current situation with Dystopia, their not-Metrotitan recolor of their not-Metroplex figure, Utopia. Besides changes to the hows and whys of shipping (but not the price), they announced that Dystopia is still available for preorder! Secondly, they posted an image of their G2-inspired yellow Giant to their Facebook page, saying that a Maketoys Exclusive was coming soon. Keep reading to see!
Third Party maker Bellzeboss has revealed images on their Weibo page of an upcoming upgrade set for Deluxe Chromia and Arcee. The Iron Lady kit is a set of weapons for the two figures based on some of their IDW comics outfittings. Included is Chromia's axe and canopy shield (which looks like it might replace the stock canopy) prominently featured in the Windblade miniseries, and a small version of the Beast Hunter sword and RID Bumblebee sword based on their depictions on the Combiner Hunters cover.

Today we've got first look renders for an upcoming unofficial Hot Spot called Maximas Pro, under the Ocular Max label. It's suggested this might be connected to Mastermind Creations, though the Ocular Max site makes no reference. Likewise there's no real information about the figure itself, but with the overwhelmingly positive response to Combiner Wars Hot Spot, it's hard to say how much traction this figure might gain. We've got the renders mirrored, so click through and have a look.
Site sponsor TFsource has passed along a couple photos from Turnman Toys of Commotus, an upcoming MMC figure carrying on their goal of representing IDW comics designs in plastic. This figure is modeled on the Decepticon Turmoil, and transforms in to a tank, though that isn't shown here. These photos show a very well proportioned and flexible figure that seems to be decently far along in production, adding to the ever-growing pile of things MMC has going on! We've got two photos mirrored, keep reading and take a look.
Nonnef Productions, recently noted for their announcement of a transforming traffic light figure have debuted a new upcoming piece today. They'll be offering feet for Combiner Wars combiners with tilting ankles, and pretty much nothing else. Expected to come in at $10 a pair in white, black and purple, these pieces are likely to be a tempting alternative for those looking for just a little more flexibility out of their giant robots and don't mind extra pieces with no other function. Click through and check out the design render!
Adding some whimsical sensibilities to their upcoming release, FansToys has released some new images relating to Stomp, their figure based on the Dinobot Sludge. Alongside a group shot of the prototype with the rest of their Dinobots, the real push is a new option head part designed to emulate that one, brief moment of the animated movie where Sludge's eyes bug out after being struck by Devastator. Of course with the Titan getting nearer to release, the chance for a scene recreation is strong... Keep reading and check it out!
Several months after launching an opt-in subscription plan with the rerelease of Steel Core and debut of its transport trailer, little had been heard from Fansproject Core of the free Core figures promised to be delivered to subscribed members periodically through the year. Finally a message from FPCore has started circulating this week, explaining the delays and promising the first (well, sort of second) subscriber premium will be shipping shortly! Read on to see a copy of the message and picture of the upcoming Osmi.
Today on their Facebook page, Perfect Effect showed off a new edition of their Perfect Combiner add-on sets. Following the PC-01 and PC-02 in black and purple to coordinate with Superion and Menasor respectively, they appear to be producing a white set in case you want a bit more G1 in your upgraded Superion. The plastic right now is more firmly in the off-white range, but hopefully will brighten up before release. This third set also makes a good case for reserving PC-01 for Defensor's use. Keep reading for the mirrored pictures!
Kapow Toys has posted a video showing off Perfect Effect's Perfect Combiner set that gives Superion or Menasor new, more poseable hands and feet. The PC-02 and PC-02 sets can fully equip either of the combiners and provide extra weapons for the individual team members. In the video, we see a run through of each configuration using both sets, and get a good overview of what they have to offer. The video is embedded below, so click through and have a look!
Site sponsor TFSource has just posted preorders for three sets of addons for MP-10 Masterpiece Optimus. These sets by Shadow Fisher offer LED lighting options for the eyes and Matrix chamber, new upper arm pieces to tweak the proportions as well as equipping an energon axe, and finally offering an option for metal smokestack replacements available either alone, or with the arms and axe. We've got the images for all of these, so click through and check it out, then head over to TFSource.
Fans have sought out a way to get this for years, and it seems it will finally be within reach. A figure modeled after the Signal Lancer character from Transformers Cybertron will be produced by Nonnef, based on a design by TreadshotA1. Signal Lancer was notable by having the alt mode of a traffic light, a novelty that drove a desire for a toy, which never officially happened. Alert Knight will join Nonnef's lineup of products later this year. Click through to see the computer render image!
X-Transbots has updated their Facebook page with a new cover image that depicts a Cyclonus-inspired vehicle flying with their Scourge-And-Sweep-alike Andras. Coded 86 MK-III, it seems that X-Transbots will be following on their not-Scourge with a similarly scaled Cyclonus figure. With this progression, can a Galvatron be very far behind?

There’s a difference between fake or counterfeit Transformers that are meant to fool collectors into thinking they are buying official product and a bootleg that is immediately distinguishable from a Hasbro or Takara figure. While both are intended to profit from and take unlicensed advantage of the Transformers brand and its supporters, some collectors can find themselves quite drawn to particular knockoffs.
When you ask what a Mirage body-type can be reused as, you have to remember that in recent years a new options has joined the list. DX9 Toys have revealed Cocomone, based on the GoBots character Crasher, by way of the Movie-Classics figure Fracture. This figure is said to be relatively limited production, so if you're in a mood for more non-Transformers references in your third parties, head to your retailer of choice and grab a preorder.
