I will attempt to do my best to help out with answers where and when I can..." Read on for the full release.

Auto Assembly, the UK's biggest Transformers convention, has announced that this year will mark their first third-party panel! The panel will take place on Sunday and will feature toy consultant Ceno Kibble (MMC, Mech Ideas, cute nickname) and freelance designer Cassy Sark (MMC, KFC, etc.).

Along with Not-Especially-Ultra Magnus, Iron Factory has released images of colored samples of their figures based on Sixgun and Slammer at the Legends scale, which will complete the assortment of partner toys for Fall of Cybertron Metroplex along with that toy's included Scamper. I only count four total guns on Sixgun, making it truly NOT-Sixgun, but its ability to separate in to two large guns or become a tank gives it a somewhat versatile play pattern.

Iron Factory has thrown itself fully in to creating additional figures scaled to Generations Legends based on other classic characters. Newly revealed is one figure based on Ultra Magnus that transforms in to a full truck with trailer, though at this size it's more of an assault vehicle than car carrier. It's displayed in scale relative to several other figures, but should be around the same height as current Generations Legends for interactivity with Metroplex. Keep reading to see the images!
Cubex has reformed as Bad Cube, and has announced their first product: OTS-02 Brawny.

Keep reading for the first images of Brawny!

ToyWorld's website has been updated finally revealing the long-promised combiner mode for their Throttlebot-based line of figures. This combiner only clearly uses five out of the six figures, plus an array of parts to support the combined form. We can't say if the figure based on Goldbug will be a part of this mode until more information is released. Keep reading to see the pictures we've mirrored!
TFCon has posted a photo and bio for Pestilence, their attendee-exclusive figure. It's a recolor of the Keith's Fantasy Club Ironpaw figure, AKA Not-Steeljaw, in a color scheme that will go equally well with a Toxitron (who is alluded to in the bio) -or a Transformers Mode "Eva" Convoy.
