In what may be turning in to a not-unwelcome trend for FansHobby, we have a new list of design tweaks and remolds for one of their upcoming releases. Gunfighter 2, the Optimus Prime-equivalent recolor of their Arch Enemy Scoure/Black Convoy is apparently having a trip back to the design stage to get some new unique parts added. Though none seem to affect the basic functioning of the figure, they add in various ways to the small details of the robot and vehicle modes. A series of before and after images was released, which you can find in our gallery below!
This weekend in China, a toy show took place that saw quite a number of our usual suspect unofficial robot makers displaying their products. Notables include a look at Toyworld's Coolsville, another of the MP-alike Not-Jazzes, Galaxy Meteor from Maketoys, which is an MP-ish take on Cybertron Starscream. Iron Factory had their seekers out, including prototypes for Conehead versions. And we get a look at one of the many, many ...many... unofficial Springers in the Masterpiece style, from OpenPlay. You can find photos of these and more in the gallery below, as well as photographer credits. Keep reading!
New this weekend on the RFC Reviews Youtube channel is a lengthy look at Phoenix from Fans Toys. This new unofficial take on the G1 cartoon's Skyfire design has been anticipated for quite a while. The video spends some time demonstrating just how very large this figure turned out, dwarfing even most official Combiner toys, not to mention other Masterpieces and unofficial equivalents. In the video, diecast makes sure to note this is a testshot piece and does not have a complete accessory loadout, but all the essentials are accounted for. The video is embedded below, so take a look!
It's a surprise to no one at all, Iron Factory has finally revealed the Black Zarak version of their unofficial Scorponok figure, Lord Scorpion. This Dark Matter Version adds the distinctive spear weapon and redesigned helmet to the figure, which along with the redeco makes a good image of Black Zarak. As we eventually learned, Lord Scorpion is only about as big as a chunky Deluxe, but it's hard to deny how attractive this release is - especially if you have a small-scale figure shelf to add it to!

Just out from Planet X is the PX-12 Fatum. Fans of the Fall of Cybertron games will appreciate this unofficial render of the Thundercracker character that is said to offered in deluxe packaging.
Transforming from fighter jets to a fierce battling robots, the Planet X Fatum and Querella figures come armed with a mace and double rifle blaster weapons.
Over on Sixo's Transformers Photo Library on Facebook, talented photographer Sixo has treated us to some interesting images of Phoenix, coming very soon from Fanstoys to fill that (extremely large) empty Skyfire shaped hole on your Masterpiece shelf. Three of the photos in particular concern the comparative size of Phoenix, and ...well, just look at how far up Combiner Wars Titan Class
Devastator this comes! We've mirrored the relevant photos, and keep reading to find a link to a larger gallery at Sixo's Facebook page!
A while back, ToyHax introduced a label set for Titans Return Rewind
that would turn him into a version of Dispensor
, the infamous soda machine from the first live-action Transformers film from 2007. Now, Trent Troop's Prize Inside! store has upped the ante with a new head and soda gun for the figure! Keep reading to have a better look at the completed custom and a link to Trent's Shapeways store.
928 Toys Laboratory on Facebook has shared a nice little gallery of MMC's Continuum upgrade kit for their unofficial Overlord figure Carnifex. These parts help give Carnifex a bit more of a Masterforce feel, with Godmaster/Powermasters, a replacement head derived a bit more from the toy, and some add on weapons for the base mode. We've mirrored a selection of the photos below, so you can click through to find those and a link back to the original posting.
It’s been almost three years since the first release of FansToys’ first Iron Dibot, Scoria, but the series is finally completed with Iron Dibot No.5, FT-08 Grinder. The leader of the group has been probably the most contentious as there already exist a few options that collectors have been using to display a full collection of five heroic transforming dinosaur robots.
Facebook user Rodimus Chan has shared a nice selection of photos of Maketoys' Contact Shot, a Masterpiece-style take on the Targetmaster Pointblank. Comparisons are included with the original G1 toy to show how the styling has been updated, plus a good look at the included Targetmaster figure, and how well Contact Shot poses with it in weapon mode. This has been a great looking project from early on, and these photos sure make it look like that carried through to the final product. Click through to see mirrored photos!
Perfect Effect is back at it again with the Perfect Combiner PC-16 Upgrade Set. This set includes a transforming figure, a new breastplate, and four interchangeable hands to add more functionality to Transformers Combiner Wars toys.
X-Transbots offered up a look at another of their in the works projects on Weibo tonight. Though at one point the project was codenamed "Locke" (think "flintlock"), after spending well over a year seemingly stalled in development, it's uncertain if their not-MP Kup is still going by the same name at this point. What we do have is a basic front/back look at the robot and a pair of vehicle images to show off where they're at. Though it's just CG renders for right now, it looks like this has moved back up the production schedule finally. Click through to see the images!
Reformatted R-22 Boreas stands about 7.50 inches (18.5cm) tall in robot mode and transforms into a space jet. Boreas comes armed with a sword that can be attached to his back when not in use and also includes an alternate head.
