While we wait patiently for New York Toy Fair 2016, Japan gets its own event a week earlier: Wonder Festival 2016 Winter!

TransformMission has posted new pictures of their combiner based on Menasor to Weibo, giving a first look at the completely assembled figure. This combiner takes after at least the spirit of Menasor's classic media design, looking very much like it's just wearing cars on top of its arms and legs. While no extreme posing is demonstrated, and the legs are barely moved at all, the arms do show a good expressive range, and the detailing of all the components blends well. We have the pictures mirrored, so click through and check it out.

ToyWorld have shared an image on TFW2005 of their latest design for a third-party Ramjet figure! Currently only known as TW-07, the scale of the figure is not precisely known - but as 2005 points out, it has articulated fingers and the holes for the screws look pretty
small. So it's probably wisest to anticipate a continuation of the Masterpiece-scale trend that has swept the third party world in the past year or so. Keep reading for a closer look at the image!
TFC Toys has posted some new shots of their SD Devastator, HerQules, to their Weibo page! HerQ is looking fairly nice, and lines up with Diabolus Rex, MasterMade's SD Trypticon, relatively well. We also get a look at the in-package figure in this round of photos. Keep reading to see!
