Readers may notice this MP scaled figure is a resemblance to the triple changer Blitzwing. Judging from the teaser illustration. This is going to be highly detailed.

This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Two Third Party MP-scale NOT Galvatrons announced this week, new photos of the upcoming Transformers Legends femmebots, we commemorate the first Transformers toy print advertisement, talk Transformers' appearance in Splatoon! and more! All this and more on RFC 431!
Following the relatively simplistic PC-03 Superion upgrade, wotafu on Youtube has posted a video looking at the upgrade for Menasor, which is surprisingly more complex than it ever looked prior to release. While not the most elegant solution, it impressively avoids primary partsforming between each mode of the Motormaster toy. The upgrade reinforces a popular fanmode for Menasor, though it may not work quite right without giving Menasor ankle tilts via separate upgrade parts. Click through and check out the video!
Just now starting to be released, we've got video coverage of Perfect Effect's Perfect Combiner series upgrade kit for Superion from Japanese Youtube reviewer wotafu. While all the dialogue is in Japanese, the video very clearly shows how the new parts work, including installation of the replacement head. It also reveals that the chest panel adds a little bit more than s small change of visual style as it originally appeared. Click through to have a look at the embedded video!
Benscollectables on Youtube has uploaded a lengthy video for Leonidas from Perfect Effect, their interpretation of Lio Convoy as the Zoids Liger Zero. This figure was first teased quite a long while back, and is finally getting in collector hands. In the video Ben goes over the robot in great detail including articulation and accessories, as well as going step by step through the surprisingly low-complexity (for Perfect Effect) transformation. We've got the video embedded in the full post, so click through and spend half an hour checking out this figure!
From Warbotron we have a few photos showing a testshot phase copy of the Grimlock figure that will be released in association with their take on the Technobots. To be presented as a model kit, much like the Shockwave for Warbotron's Bruticus-analogue, the final colors will surely be more consistent with Grimlock's normal colors, though this testshot's purple and greens are hardly unattractive! Click through to see all the photos.

So is a third party upgrade for a third party toy fourth party, or sixth? Maybe the effect is multiplicative and it's ninth party? Either way, NoNameClub on Weibo has announced CombToys' W01 Bastard, a replacement sword for Feral Rex! If your Mastermind Creations version of Predaking is in need of a long bladed one-handed sword, Bastard would more or less be the correct terminology for that. Click through to see photos!
GigaPower Toys' first foray into third-party Dinobots, Guttur, was fairly well received. Now they're moving on to everyone's favorite name-changing triceratops with the addition of Grassor! The character known as Slag, Slug, and occasionally Snarl is looking good, and pretty massive next to MP-10 Optimus Prime. Read on to see photos!
