More Third Party
Via Weibo, Uniquetoys has shared some new pictures of Ragnaros, the Masterpiece-size Combaticon project they're working on. Using color samples of the Swindle and Brawl analogues and grey prototypes for the other three, we get some looks at the assembled combined form of Ragnaros itself, and a team shot of the five robots together. Some aspects like the combiner chestplate look to be adopting cartoon traits, perhaps as a way to more fully embrace the current style of real Masterpieces which are embracing cartoon elements in their designs. You can find the whole set in the gallery below!
FansToys has shared new photos showing off a full color testshot of Koot, the unofficial Kup joining their lineup of Masterpiece-scale figures. While it is cautioned that details could still change before the final version of the figure, this seems to be giving a positive impression for the project, offering such things as opaque or transparent windshield options, an option face with a cigar, and a fairly good representation of the cartoon model in the face sculpting - though the cigar was always an IDW-specific trait. We've mirrored the photos, and you can find them all below.
DX9 Toys shared a gallery for a prototype of Gabriel, their answer to an unofficial Masterpiece-scaled Omega Supreme. The initial release that preceded this gave a description of the height, but these photos actually show the robot standing among official Masterpieces, including MP-10 Optimus, giving a very clear sense of just how big this figure is. We also get an all-important first look at its articulation and ability to pose, plus some extra details of the alternate mode elements. All of that is mirrored below, click through and see it now!
This one stayed under the radar for a little bit, but it seems DX9 is throwing down in the giant unofficial Omega Supreme game too. D12 Gabriel will stand 56cm tall at the head - just about 22 inches - and features transformation in to the full rocket base. The initial shipment will come with a bonus option face part to represent "shedding tears". It also looks like the tank will be able to carry a Dianaut from the Diaclone Reboot line in the transformed robot head, which will have cockpit details. And it's all for preorder as one unit for just $279.99! Check out the promo images below.
Teased recently, Core Magnus has now been fully unveiled by Perfect Effect on their Facebook page. A recolor of their Jinrai Prime cab robot figure for Super Ginrai or Powermaster Optimus, this is the Ultra Magnus themed release to provide a transforming white truck cab robot. The only unique parts included are a replacement chest plate, and a neck joint adapter, presumably to be used with the armored Ultra Magnus head, but that function is not clear. Core Magnus is set for release in August. Click through to see the photos, mirrored below.
Perfect Effect posted to Facebook early this morning with some new photos of PC-16 - Jinrai Prime, the cab robot they've developed to upgrade Legends Super Ginrai, or just Hasbro Powermaster Optimus alongside their PC-15 kit which features the Powermaster (or Godmaster) partner and a replacement super robot mode head. These shots also reveal for the first time that there will be a redeco of Jinrai Prime in white for Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus! Finally, a silhouette teaser at the end looks to be promising an unofficial Godbomber add on for use with Powermaster Optimus Prime. Check it out in our gallery below!
Kingzilla is a triple changer transforming from robot to jet or dragon creature. Kingzilla's head can transform to a minion driver called Komodus in the jet mode and back to head for dragon and robot mode. Fans of the classic G1 toys will recognize this as an unofficial Snapdragon homage. KFC have done a great job with great looking alternate and robot modes. See the full details and images below.
Iron Factory's got a new figure to show once again, and this one is based on Shockwave. Bridge Watcher joins the rest of their small-scale figure lineup, and is shown in full color on this new promo image. It boasts multiple option hands, all cast in clear purple. We presume that it can transform with at least the default set on, but it's uncertain now whether it would be possible with any of the extras in use. It looks like a target release date for this may be June 30th, so not long to wait at all if this strikes your interests. Click through for the full size image!

FansToys has posted multiple new photos of Rouge, their Masterpiece-size take on G1 Arcee. The prototype looks to have undergone some minor revisions since the last time it was presented, but this is mainly a show off for various accessories, and options parts including various faces and a visor attachment as seen on the original Transformers: The Movie. One image also depicts a CG render in the planned release colors. You can find all of these photos in the gallery below!
Badcube just announced a reissue of their first release: Brawny & Backland. There will be 2nd edition packaging, updated joints and slightly different color scheme. Plus the original bonus parts will be included in the package.
U.Nem Studios on Facebook has done a very nice gallery featuring Buzzard and Volture, the newest entries in the ReMix series of larger-scale cassette characters, under MMC's Ocular Max label. The unofficial Buzzsaw and Laserbeak are shown to be quite poseable, able to strike many bird postures, and with help of a stand, look quite natural in flight. You can also get a good look at them in their full-size audio cassette forms. Check out all the photos below, along with a link to view the original gallery on Facebook!
Via Instagram, Mastermind Creations has shared a pair of photos showing a full color, perhaps finalized sample of Aero Alpham their figure based on the IDW comics character Wing. Wing was a supporting character in the original Drift miniseries written by Shane McCarthy; he died to motivate Drift's character development. We don't know anything new about the release for this figure right now, but we do have a fresh robot and vehicle photo of it, which you can find in our gallery below.
We've got a few new images showing off Kingorilla, the not-Apeface coming up from KFC. This debuted at a hobby show in China not long ago, alongside a matching Snapdragon-analogue. The pictures give a fair look at each mode, but it's the couple of extra shots from KFC's Weibo page that tell the tale, as you can see the jet mode hoisted up on human hand and begin to feel a sense of scale for this figure not imparted by the isolated shots. We have all of that mirrored below, click through to have a look!
