Dean Lee has posted photos on Facebook of a large display of third party items, and among various Mastermind Creations products is a surprise - a roughly Voyager-equivalent looking Cyclonus that bears more than a passing resemblance to the IDW interpretation of the character. This has been something fans have been wanting for quite some time, and it seems MMC is preparing to deliver, as they've taken to do with increasing frequency of late. Click through for a look at the enlarged low-res photo.
More great photos from U.Nem Studios, showing more of Jaegertron, the heavily reimagined take on Lockdown by MMC. While the alt mode is still not available due to missing pieces, we do get to see more detail of the robot mode, and a good look at the storage locker of accessories and trophies which looks to incorporate as part of the vehicle mode as well. Keep reading to see all the photos!
U.Nem Studios has posted two new photos of the robot mode of Jaegertron, supposedly a take on Lockdown by MMC. While showing certain features that suggest that, it's such a departure from any established design that it's hard to say with certainty if it's truly "supposed to be" anything. But this is one of the best looks at the figure's robot mode so far, showing off a very interesting looking design. Hopefully some vehicle images will follow along pretty soon too.

From U.Nem Studios on Facebook, we have a nice close up photo of a grey prototype of Mastermind Creations' Carnifex, based on Overlord as seen in the IDW comics. Finally seen as a physical prototype at this year's TFCon, we've got another really nice look at this highly anticipated figure. U.Nem Studios hints that there may be more to come, so we'll keep watch for that. Meanwhile, click through to see the full size image!

From weibo user zmultiplier, we've got some new pictures of the Dreamwave War Within-inspired Megatron figure being developed by Sparktoys. In this round of shots we get a look at its vehicle mode alongside Generations Leader Class Megatron, showing that this figure is more huge than the previous showings really conveyed!

Perfect Effect has just posted an update on their Facebook page showing off production samples of their two kits to upgrade Titan Class Devastator.

They also state a ship date of December 20th for the sets, which were originally expected by retailers in October. Click through to check out the photos!
It seems like we're entering G1 season 3's time to shine with third parties, as another unofficial Galvatron Masterpiece-alike has been shown. FansToys has posted what looks like a very early prototype of Sovereign, their stab at doing MP-style Galvatron. Though seen only in robot mode, a small amount of poseability is demonstrated, as well as an alternate face to give an early idea of what this will offer. One shot also includes silhouettes of Cyclonus and Scourge, giving promise of more Unofficial 1986 in the works. Click through to check out the photos!
Via their Weibo page, third party group FansToys has given us a first look at their design for Hoodlum, an unofficial MP-style Hot Rod figure. While the renders shown don't display all the design details, it does seem to be taking some different choices than the official MP Hot Rod, such as having the robot chest be a separate panel from the actual car hood. Whether these changes will ultimately result in a more pleasing overall package will have to be seen in due time. Keep reading to have a look!
Vangelus has gotten hands on a near final testshot of Andras, the X-Transbots take on Scourge as a Masterpiece-style figure, and posted a detailed review. Included are instructions for installing the 9 button cell batteries plus tricks to improve the glow of the eyes, a transformation walkthrough, and a look at both modes. Going by the overall positive nature of the video, it could be that Andras is the turning point for X-Transbots' build quality that many have been hoping to see.

Plus, as usual, there's some shots with other official Masterpieces and similarly scaled unofficial figures. Keep reading to see it all!
From their Facebook page, we have new images of DNA Designs' add on parts for Titan Class Devastator. Focused on improving the combined form, there's a range of upgrades like poseable hands, extended forearms, and of course the seeming prerequisite of a cab slipper for Mixmaster. This also comes with extra pieces to attach to their replacement Devastator head to give it IDW Prowl attributes. This set is currently expected to ship in December for about $55.
