MakeToys MTRM-03 Hellfire Emergency Relief Edition - All Proceeds To Benefit Victims Of Fort McMurray Fire
RAC - Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Now you can help fight actual fires with an unofficial Inferno figure: MakeToys has announced that every Hellfire purchased through their web store will have one hundred percent of its purchase price donated to the Red Cross' relief funds for victims of the Fort McMurray fire in Alberta, Canada. The fire has displaced over 80,000 people and destroyed 2400 buildings, most of them homes. Keep reading for more information on MakeToys' contributions to the relief effort and a link for the purchase of Hellfire.
We have been watching the news out of Alberta these days and are saddened to hear of all the people in Fort McMurrary who have lost their homes, lost their jobs and pretty much have lost everything they have ever had. We want to help in any way we can so we are making a very special offer of Hellfire on our Maketoys shop. For every Hellfire sold on our site we will donate the entire $124.99 to the Red Cross Fire Relief fund which to date has provided $50 Million to evacuees. This is a limited edition figure and we will be adding a sticker to the package so you know that you are doing something to help the aid. Thank you for your consideration and all our thoughts go out to those in need.
Currently Fort McMurrary in Alberta Canada is burning due to an out of control wildfire. More than 80,000 people have been evacuated from the city and over 2400 structures in the city have been effected.
We want to help with the Red Cross relief for this disaster with a special offer from MakeToys. We will have a limited number of Hellfire available for sale with a limited edition sticker that says you helped with the Fort McMurrary wild fire red cross relief. All monies collected from this limited edition will be sent to the Red Cross relief fund and used for the displaced families who have lost their homes and to the firefighters who are risking their lives to help others.
Such altruism isn't unheard-of among third-party manufacturers: FansProject previously created Blesser, a variation on their Targetmaster Firebolt interpretation Sidearm, to benefit the relief efforts following the 2011 tsunami in Japan.
Mastermind Creations have released details and images on their R-31 Ater Beta and R-32 Stray action figure releases. A look at both figures in their robot and alternate modes along with details on the weapons and other features with links to the pre-orders, after the jump.
Fans Toys has put out some teaser images for their FT-30, which will be a new take on a large-scale Superion combiner, starting with FT-30A, their (as yet name-unrevealed) unofficial Silverbolt. The other Aerialbots are represented in the defocused background for proof of concept, but what we get to see is an overview of the core robot in both modes, and at this stage the design looks pretty nice with a strong following to the animation. Not too much detail can be pulled from this quite yet, but it looks like we'll have another project to keep watch on for a while. Click through to see all the images mirrored from Fans Toys' Weibo.

Dr Wu has some new upcoming products to show off via Weibo. First is ASURA, an upgrade package for Masterpiece Megatron. It consists of a sword (in one of two color styles), a mini camera mode Reflector, and a Cybertronic set of binoculars that come in one of two colorations like the sword. The HOME set is a system of interlocking base plates in the general style of the always-popular Mechanical Chain Bases, where you can make a basic environment for your toys - provided you buy enough sets. We've mirrored the pictures of both, keep reading to see!
Alien Attack Toys is currently notable for their figure Firage, based on the never-had-an-original-mold Dark of The Moon character Dino (referred as Mirage in some materials). Now they're taking another shot at the movies and presenting El Cid, their take on Optimus Prime as he appeared in the two most recent movies. The robot is said to be a bit over 10 inches tall, and a side by side with MPM-3 Bumblebee shows the two scale with each other pretty well - though it may work just as well to fit in with normal movie toys also. We've got the photos mirrored from Weibo, click through and have a look.
