Third Party
More Third Party

Lots of third party goods have been shown off at the China International Comics Festival the last day or two, and the photos keep rolling in! Kicking off tonight, we have shots from Master Made showing prototypes for their next two figures in the SDT series based on Trypticon and Omega Supreme. Both are looking nice, but it's a bit of a curiosity how Apollo's transformation is actually going to work given the proportions it's rendered in! Keep reading to check out the photos.

Just in from TFSource. Here’s the MP scaled first figure from Toyworld's Devy Combiner series, the one with the video of the tracks moving! TW also said the total height on Devy is more in the 50-55CM range/ 20-22”, just shy of 2 feet which sets him just below the height of G1 fort max when combined. More info to come as they’re still early in the development of this impressive piece.

Sighted on the TF Upgrader Facebook page, coming from the same Chinese toy show as the rest of the new prototypes of the past few days is TFC's Hades, perhaps better known as Liokaiser! Shown in front is core robot Leozack, whose nom de plausible-trademark-deniability is currently not known. Keep reading to see the image up close!

We have some more pictures to share from China International Comics Festival, as at a Planet X display, testshots of their next Fall of Cybertron-inspired Dinobot figures were on display. The Grimlock analogue had been seen as an earlier prototype build a little while back, and now stands in full vibrant testshot colors, still looking very nice. Meanwhile a plesiosaur based on obscure extra Dinobot Paddles was also on display in much more Dinobot-ish plastic colors, looking a bit closer to release! Click through to take a look.

Again coming from GRAVE on Weibo by way of TFW2005 from the China International Comics Festival, the first clear images of TFC's Seacons are now available! Potentially named Mentara and Cyberjaws, the two figures shown are believed to be the Skalor and Seawing parts of the Piranacon combiner team. Read on to see!

The second new figure spotted at the China International Comics Festival, TFW2005 and GRAVE of Weibo have posted images of Generation Toys' Tyrant! Tyrant is scaled to work with the company's Legends-scale Devastator, Gravity Builder, and by some reports is to be included when you order the complete Gravity Builder set from online retailers. Keep reading to see!

By way of TFW2005, Daim Choc and Weibo user GRAVE have posted images of the first prototype out of Garatron, a new third-party group! Gand of Devil G.o.D.-01 Thunderstorm is based, appropriately enough, on IDW's Stormbringer version of Thunderwing as designed by Don Figueroa! Details on price, size, and release date are not currently available, but keep reading to see the photos!

Toy Scope on Facebook has posted a few new photos of the Maketoys unofficial Scorponok Pandinus, as well as a short review of the robot mode. As this is a testshot and still had a journey ahead of it, they apparently didn't have the opportunity to transform it, but the text indicates that the robot mode has a surprising degree of poseability given its overall size and bulk. We've got the photos mirrored, and a link to the review post, so click through and check it out!

The Iron Lady add on set containing weapons similar to those included in this year's Combiner Hunters SDCC set has some new images today. Seen in colorless clear plastic which we really hope is not the final appearance for everything in the set, the new pictures focus on Chromia's add ons, which include the canopy shield. A few pictures also take time to show how Chromia stores all the extra gear in motorcycle mode - no report on storage for Arcee's Giant Slayer at this time. Click through for the mirrored photos!

Apparently it's time for a competition of Combiner Wars Optimus Prime upgrades, as via the Weibo page of chanmoda, we have a first look at another IDW-inspired upgrade package by a group identifying as "SND". With many images provided, we can see expected general similarities, with some notable design divergences that may prove important. But what's probably most interesting is the teaser at the end for a Nova Prime kit, likely intended for Battle Core Optimus. Keep reading to take a look!

Recently we brought you news of Beelzeboss working on a modification kit for Combiner Wars Prime to give it a look more like what's found in IDW's comics, including a full walkthrough of the transformation. Today we have some new pictures from the Beelzeboss Weibo account showing some poseability, and height comparisons that indicate this kit will bring Optimus to near equal footing with Leader Class Generations! Click through to check out the new photos.

TFSource have sent us an update for the Warbotron WB03-F Master action figure. Get a look at the new Full-Color images for this Not Grimlock Warbotron team figure. The big Grim is looking good with G1-like colors in robot and alternate Dino-bot modes. Read on to see the pre-order info and images for this this figure coming in October, 2015.

On Facebook, Fai Wong has shared several photos of Evil Lord from Iron Factory. This time we get to see the vehicle modes, as well as the base configuration, giving a full overview of Evil Lord's capabilities. The Legends-scale compatible take on Overlord looks very nice in these shots, highlighting very well its poseability and nice design style. If the intent was to make us all regret that this wasn't made at a larger scale, I'd say the mission was successful! Click through to check out the photos.

Via their Weibo page, Hero-Hobby has posted images of the super deformed style Grimlock figure they've been working on. Of particular note, this figure looks to be fully transformable despite its exaggerated proportions. In the same post they offer a graphic teasing future products, such as a Slag also shown to transform, and Soundwave and an implied Blaster. And at the very top is the silhouette of Arcee, though it's hard to imagine how that design in this style would be able to be realized as a transforming figure. Keep reading to check out the mirrored images!

If you've been following Fansproject's Saurus Ryu-Oh line, an update of the Japanese exclusive Dino Force team, you know part of this project is dinosaur Pretender shells being sold separately from the regular figures. We finally know where the first of these will be available. Tricerabot, the shell for Dinoichi, is reportedly exclusive to the 2015 Action Figure Expo happening Sunday, September 27 in Ontario. Inquiries about possible further distribution for those unable to attend have so far been ignored. The Facebook post announcing this included several pictures, which we've mirrored, so keep reading!
