Relative newcomer FansHobby has shared via their Facebook page a new image of a color testshot of Feilong, their figure based on the Monsterbot Doublecross. Apparently as a result of examining the testshot, FansHobby have decided on some revisions to the figure, which they've revealed with new product renders. Mainly the changes are to fill in gaps and spaces that weren't satisfactory, but one of the changes includes adding some length to the wings, increasing the overall span by quite a bit. You can see all of the images mirrored below!
Via Weibo we've got a new look at Apocalypse from Planet X. Based on the High Moon Studios take on Trypticon from the War For Fall Of Cybertron game series, Apocalypse has been notable for being an early attempt at third party groups selling larger, non-combiner-type items as two or more purchases. These few new photos showing what is probably a production sample only depict the robot mode for now. But you wouldn't be alone if you had some trouble recognizing this as Trypticon even in this state. We've mirrored the images, click through to have a look!
MMC's figure inspired by the design of Rodimus as seen in IDW's More Than Meets The Eye
is now up for preorder, with an expected ship date in June. Several new photos of the figure showing both modes in full color, with and without its bow accessory have also been revealed. Reformatted R-27 Calidus stands just over 7 inches (18cm) tall and transforms into a racing car. Calidus's energy bow can be mounted to his backpack in robot mode, and it forms the car's fender in racing car mode. This item is priced at $84.99 and is available for preorder now at bigbadtoystore.com
Iron Factory has shared new promo photos of Wing of Tyrant, their iteration of Starscream for their line of Legends-size figures. The figure looks very highly detailed - so much that it would be hard to tell it's a small scale figure if not for the size of the hand openings. The photos include coronation gear and a Megatron pistol, showing a good accessory loadout. This figure is more based on some IDW interpretations of the G1 Starscream design, and naturally, Thundercracker and Skywarp are to follow. The pictures are mirrored below, click through and take a look!
