Fanstoys has released new pictures tonight of Terminus Giganticus. While sounding like an improvised scientific name straight out of a Road Runner cartoon, it is of course the huge unofficial Omega Supreme made to fit in with a Masterpiece figure display. As a reminder, this is being sold in two parts over the course of summer 2017, and is expected to clock in over $450 when all is said and done. We've got some promo photos straight from Fanstoys, plus one extra from a booth display showing it alongside some other unofficial products. Keep reading to see!
PerfectEffect has posted a teaser image for their PC-16 upgrade kit coming in May... and it's, well, perfect.
The effect the piece is going to have is to provide the one thing that I think many of us missed with LG35 Super Ginrai and Titans Return Leader Powermaster Optimus Prime: a cab that becomes a robot unto itself! More details as they become available, but for now keep reading to see the image!
On Weibo recently, Alucardlee shared numerous photos of Toyworld's M03 Crank. This figure is a take on Kup at Masterpiece scale, emulating the original character design. While largely drawing inspiration from original G1, there is some additional influence in the inclusion of an optional lit cigar, a characteristic from the IDW interpretation of the character (at least for a while). The gallery shows a lot of the figure's poseability, along with giving an overview of the vehicle mode. It's mirrored below, so click through for the gallery!
So let's jump in the Wayback Machine for a moment and look back to 2015 when SXS posted a silhouette image of Rodimus as he appeared in (at the time) More Than Meets The Eye
. Over a year and a half later, we have a followup with a grey prototype piece showing off the robot mode for this project. R-04 Hot Flame stays quite true to the comic design in having almost no secondary anatomy visible, though one can make out tiny wheels under enough scrutiny. The initial tease also promises a vehicle form which we'll simply have to wait to see. You can check out the robot image in the full post below.
Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has posted images of two new Combiner Wars upgrade kits coming our way in the first quarter of 2017. Despite the numbering, this seems to be C+ Custom's first Transformers upgrade kit to come to market. THC-02 provides a bank of new parts for Defensor including new hands and feet and a chestplate, and even a new torso for Hot Spot. THC-02B does the same, except for Victorion! Keep reading to see the images.
The toy-designing whiz known as Jizai Toys was doing third party a decade before that was a thing, making extremely show-accurate transforming figures of characters like Wheelie and Cyclonus. These days, judging from his blog, he seems to be having a lot of fun with his 3D printer making one-off feats of engineering. One of his latest customs: a Mickey Mouse cassette! Keep reading to get a good look at the figure.
DNA Designs first official figure is DS-01 Susanoo! Highly articulated and made of PVC, ABS and die-cast this masterpiece scaled figure transforms from bushido robot to tank and back! This is also the first production run of this piece that will include a free bonus gift. Pre-orders are online now at TFSource.com
Blacklai at TFND has gotten a few pictures of a production sample of Susanoo, a project by DNA Designs. This figure is a take on Bludgeon, using the Revenge of The Fallen line's Voyager as a conceptual base, but more or less eliminating any movie styling. The figure shows substantially improved articulation - and check out those hands! - being able to strike many a characteristic samurai-inspired pose. This might be a little too specifically focused to draw a large audience, but time will ultimately tell. The photos are definitely worth checking out, so keep reading to see them below!
TAGHobby has posted new images of FlameToys' Kuro Kara Kuri Drift from the Toy Soul 2016 show in Hong Kong! These new photos give us a better look at the figure from multiple angles as well as a look at the lineart for Drift and his weapons and the light-up part of the torso! Also a shot where Drift seems to be dramatically staring down his eternal rival, Doraemon.
Sometimes the best photos are accidents. Keep reading to see the photos mirrored here!

Archenemy is made of ABS plastics and metal alloy and features a high level of pose-ability. Archenemy comes armed with a sword. This item is priced at $114.99 with shipped set for January 2017. Pre-order the figure now at bigbadtoystore.com
Photographer AlucardLee has posted images of Toyworld TW-M06 Leia to Weibo. Based on G1 Arcee, the Masterpiece-scaled figure takes much inspiration from the 2014 Generations figure, down to taking the US release's miscoloration and the sculpt's entirely-too-organic lower body shape from that figure. Keep reading, and don't forget to get a good look at the back shots of the vehicle mode.
FansProject has released two new transforming dinosaurs in there lost realm line. Echara and Comera are a pair of lady dinos that transform into a Velociraptor and Spinosaurus.

Over on Weibo, FansHobby has posted a few new photos showing MB-06, their MP-scaled Powermaster Optimus Prime figure. On display is the non-super robot mode made just from the truck cab. Only a few angles are shown, but it starts to show what to expect the eventual finished product to look like. It's seen alongside their unofficial Black Convoy/RID Scourge ...as well as an iPhone for an attempt at objective scale. Also shown is the Powermaster component itself, whether you prefer it as Hi-Q or Ginrai. We've mirrored the photos, keep reading and take a look!
From Weibo user bandaimaru, we've got a few shots of a prototype of Toyworld's unofficial Cosmos figure. What we expect to be Masterpiece scale (which in Autobot Mini-Vehicle terms means probably Deluxe-ish) is seen in full color, making the project at its current stage look quite good, for those to whom the design and proportions of G1 Cosmos hold a special place. The figure doesn't seem to have its own codename yet, and likewise it's maybe a bit too early for release info. But you can sure enjoy looking for now! Check it all out in the gallery below.
