MakeToys Galaxy Meteor Cancelled - Unofficial Cybertron Starscream
RAC - Monday, August 21, 2017


MakeToys has announced via Twitter and Facebook that Galaxy Meteor, their unofficial rendition of Transformers: Cybertron Starscream, has been cancelled for low preorder numbers. They say they're "currently looking at ways of making the project more successful," which could mean anything from negotiating with specific retailers to looking for ways to reduce cost. It's difficult to say, but hopefully you didn't have your heart set on owning this any time soon. Keep reading for the details.
We are sorry to inform that the Galaxy Meteor project has currently been cancelled due to low numbers on preroders. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused to our loyal supporters over the years.

We are currently looking at ways of making the project more successful. Please keep an eye on our facebook or with your favorite retailers for more info as it becomes available.

We are very sorry about this inconvenience.


Cybertron Starscream was based heavily on Don Figueroa's design for Transformers: The War Within. The design was available in the US at the Supreme (Unicron-sized) and Legends (Modern-day Legion) size classes in his animation color scheme, and in a Voyager-sized toy in a darker red paint job as part of a ToysRUs-exclusive two-pack. The Voyager was released in standard colors in Japan as part of Transformers: Galaxy Force, the Takara equivalent of the Cybertron line.

It's a neat design, to be sure, evoking the G1 Cybertronian alt-mode seen in the premiere episode "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1." But as a high-end unofficial collector's piece, it's a bit of a head-scratcher. The design itself is well-liked but Cybertron itself is the least-liked (and least-watched) of the Unicron Trilogy. If you're into high-end toys it's hard to say where this figure would go. With the G1 3P stuff? That'd be weird. With your Cybertron stuff? If you're displaying any of that already, Galaxy Force or TRU Starscream would likely be much cheaper. And because it's the most liked of Cybertron's designs, this means it's unlikely we're going to see any other toys intended to display with it, except the inevitable Seeker recolors. This seems like it's a fine toy designed to fill a niche that isn't there... and that's a crying shame, because we'd love to see more non-G1 figures made and out there and being successful. Especially one that isn't a Springer.

Or maybe it's because the original toy is near perfect and is still be able to compete to nowadays transformers ?   I'm a big fan of Unicron Trilogy, but Ii absolutely see no point of a Starscream remake, there's nothing to remake.   If they want to do stuff for Unicron trilogy, there's pl... read more

FansToys has shared some brand new photos of Rouge, their upcoming release based on Arcee at the Masterpiece scale. We now get to see Rouge in full color and alongside other unofficial season 3 character figures. The styling of the robot diverges in some minor respects from the media source material, but at the same time, this unofficial take on Arcee does have a structurally complete vehicle form. We've got the promo photos mirrored below, so click through and take a look!
Perfect Effect has revealed the prototype for their next Perfect Beast release. Mega Doragon is based on Transmetal 2 Megatron, reimagined in a more purpley-mechanical style than the cyborg-like original Beast Wars design. Mega Doragon is equal height to Beast Gorira, and taking the dragon wings in account, probably beats it for overall mass. We don't get a good direct look at the head, but from what's visible the face sculpt seems to capture Megatron pretty well, which will surely be an important consideration for potential buyers. We have the images mirrored below, click through and take a look!
Magic Square is rolling out many new G1 inspired legends scaled figures that transform from robot to crane/hauler truck and back.
