FansToys certainly has no problem with ambition! Their latest reveal, FT-20, is nothing less than an Omega Supreme designed to interact with Masterpiece Transformers. The figure takes its cues largely from the cartoon, with its overly boxy form as a robot, and simplified alternate mode look. But where this really tries to sell itself is its size, and as you can see in the mirrored gallery, it suitably towers over basically everything. More alarming is the hint that FansToys might have a Devastator on the way at the same size! Keep reading to see everything!
The next stage of the warring third parties seems to be kicking off. Hot on the heels of Hasbro's genuine modern Sixshot, two of the third party companies have debuted their own efforts. DX9 has revealed Hanzo (or Hanzuo, according to at least one DX9 posting), which was on hand at TFCon this weekend. Subsequently, GCreations has shown off the CG design for their stab, which currently seems to not have progressed to the point of a code name. You can find images of both below and compare and contrast for yourself!
Iron Factory has today unveiled Alleria, their version of Elita-1 which is a retool of their Arcee, Pink Assassin. As we understand it currently, the figure is to be included with the first production of EX14 Ultimate Commander - the Optimus based both on IDW comic designs and God Ginrai. With no additional plan for distribution known at this time, if this information is correct it would make Ultimate Commander of some added interest, not to mention value. We'll keep you updated as we learn more, and for now click through to see the photos of the new figure!
As Titans Return wave 3 slowly starts initial availability in Asia, we have a new round of photos showing off Hot Rod. In this quick batch we see it with Titans Return Galvatron, as well as rounding out a 1986 movie cast display, plus a couple newly seen details: The vehicle attack mode with the weapons attached, and a slight mistransformation of the torso that makes it look a tiny bit like the Masterpiece toy. Keep reading to see all the pictures and for photographer credit!
Toy reviewer Peaugh has posted some images from TFCon Chicago of MMC's new MTMTE-style Megatron! The figure's alt mode seems to be a large air- or spacecraft of some sort, with a choice of a more traditional Fusion Cannon or the jet's nose for arm-mounted weaponry. Unsurprisingly, it's in scale with their DJD series of figures. Keep reading to see!

Via Facebook, from a currently unidentified source, we have higher resolution and better quality images from the magazine pages that revealed MP-36 Megatron. Notably we have a good look at the accessory array, which contains among other things a Key To Vector Sigma, the helmet used to control the Optimus Prime clone in "A Prime Problem", the gun and beam sabre from the movie, and several option parts. Small insets demonstrate attack modes with the gun mode add-ons, as well. Keep reading to see it all!

Autobase Aichi has retrieved a fresh batch of pictures from Weibo, where user wujingguang has posted in-hand shots of Hot Rod and Twinferno! Both are looking pretty nice. Hot Rod in particular looks like he will be the worthy update to Classics Rodimus we've been waiting on for ten years now. (Which was itself the Hot Rod update fans had been waiting for for twenty years. We're all old, fellow collectors!) Keep reading to have a look at the figures!
TFW2005 member oku has shared magazine... well, photos! Definitely not scans - of a hobby magazine set to reveal the previously-leaked Masterpiece Megatron as MP-36! It looks a fair bit better than the previous MP Megatron, and comes with some interesting accessories, including Transformers: The Movie battle-damaged chestplate and helmet! Keep reading to see the photos!
It seems not all of the leaks have been plugged as we had hoped for. A new color guide has been posted, and it shows nothing less than the toyline incarnation of The Last Knight Optimus Prime. The graphic is cropped to hide info like the size class, though it clearly looks Voyager at a minimum, and possibly larger still. One possibility is that this is another "first edition" figure that will precede the main line by several weeks as was done with Age of Extinction. We hope to find out more soon, and for now click through to take a look.
