More Third Party
Another crowd source exclusive is this set of Head Shots. According to Play With This Too, this deco of the toys will be available exvlusively during their February crowd funding. The colors for Skull-FCKR were intended to go with the Bitemark body, allowing people to combine the two together. I'm also including a photo-edit of the head on the Bitemark body.
Play With This Too is preparing for a Kickstarter campaign in early 2015, to feature a series of exclusive versions of figures as incentives. The first shown is Bitemark, a black and red hybrid of Desolataur (based on Skullgrin) with a red Bloodbath (Bomb-Burst) head and a Tech Drone in matching colors. While not analogous to any Transformers character like the input parts are, it's an attractive deco and effective monster design that would fit right in with other Pretender Monster-style figures.

Writer Maz has posted an article on our sponsor TFSource's blog talking about his experience with Azalea from Mastermind Creations. Accompanied by numerous photos, Maz relates the course of his dealing with this anticipated figure from MMC, and tries to offer some advice and insight for others considering Azalea or another from her family. While not entirely shining a positive light on the toy, this piece may be helpful to those on the fence between MMC or Generations Arcee. Keep reading for select excerpts and a few mirrored photos!

A interview with Keith from ACToys revealed a picture of a recolor/remold of their Crash Hog (not MP Wreck-Gar) done as Cy-Kill.
This figure will stand 23cm tall, so technically guys like MP Starscream, Soundwave or X-Transbots Apollyon could ride him!
Final product images of AllFun Toys Titanium Saints Alpha Trion have been posted online by the manufacturer. This figure is a Classic scale transforming Alpha Trion homage that turns into a space ship.

, we now have color photos of an apparently more finalized version of Titanium Saint, an upcoming third party attempt at Alpha Trion. Designed with a battle ship vehicle mode, the figure is noted to be about 6 inches tall, intended to be scaled with Classics-family toys. The current price of $115 seems a bit steep for a figure this size and complexity from a group without a prominent track record, but perhaps this will greatly surprise everyone!

Though Masterpiece Bumblebee isn't even officially out yet, there's already an aftermarket addon kit waiting for it. Dr Wu has shown a new head that has modified proportions versus the figure's standard head, and may give a better option to some who don't quite finding the Takara designed face to completely agree with them. No information is posted on a release date or pricing yet, but there are at least test shots done already, so it likely won't be long. Click through to see the pictures and decide what you think!
