Prolific Youtube reviewer ShartimusPrime has stopped by with his latest review of iGear's Shark Attack Squad set of G1-style Sharkticon figures as well as a full gallery of photos, both of which you can see if you keep reading
Zenith Forge updated their Facebook with new test shot images for their ZF-002 set for the first Beast Hunters Voyager Optimus Prime (which we reviewed here
last year). The set includes a large gatling cannon, and a new faceplated head to replace the Kenneriffic grimaced face the toy comes with. Take note, the colors shown are not final, though with exception of missing paint applications I think it looks pretty close. Click here
to see all the images.
Thanks to BigBadToyStore, we have new prototype photos of the two pack Bluster and Trench from Mech Ideas, representing the Huffer and Pipes character designs from Transformers Animated. Seen in both modes and alongside one of Mech Ideas' Jumpstarter figures for size reference, they look small and relatively simple, but ought to be a hit with fans craving more Animated style characters. Check out the images here
The third parties are hitting on all cylinders today, as X2 Toys Interceptor joins the growing list of new product updates. Interceptor is the transforming rifle and artillery unit for Generations Metroplex made to complement the toy's existing rifle so your city can have extra overkill power in all modes. X2ToysPanda has posted two images of the packaging on their weibo page, which you can see mirrored below!
RobotKingdom has posted a new set of photos of the latest testshot of Unique Toys' Soundmixer figure. This take on Blaster is still without the armor advertised in the original materials, but is said to still be under development. While the rifle cleverly transforms in to a cassette shape for staorage, we're informed Soundmixer does not hold normal Transformer or third party microcassette toys, unfortunately. Click here
to see all the pictures mirrored in our gallery.
Fansproject Core has posted a new story segment on their website, detailing Defender having an evil doppleganger. The most obvious interpretation of this would be that FPC is planning a reuse of the Warbot Defender "not-Springer" figure, which while having been reissued once or twice in its original colors has never been used otherwise.

Following news last year of low retailer confidence leading to the Mach 5 group's canceling of the Gauntlet figure based on IDW's iteration of Ironfist, Mech Ideas this morning has announced they've taken over developing the project. Posting uncolored prototype photos on Facebook, they say it will be at a lower price than before with preorders to come "soon". Check out all the photos with size comparison below!

Following our report on the third party toys project Giga Power Dinorobots that reveals a possible new line of Master Robots figures that pay homage to the G1 Dinobots characters. We have first look at a prototype of what appears to be their HQ-03 Not Slag figure. Which is kind of interesting to see the 3rd figure shown first. Get a look at what the first of the "Master Robots" believed to be an MP scale figure in the uncolored prototype robot mode. Hopefully this means we will be seeing the other four figures soon as well.
Thanks to BBTS who let us know they have just listed some new Acid Rain 3.75" Scale transforming figures from a company called Oritoy. They have done incredible work on this line and the line should be appealing to a cross section of GI Joe, Transformers, ThreeA, and other military, mecha, and 3.75" fans. These figures are highly detailed with battle damage and other features that make these toys ready for action. Get a look at the images below. You can order them now at bigbadtoystore.com
