On Facebook, GCreations has posted an update featuring a color testshot of Fuuma, their unofficial version of Sixshot designed for a Masterpiece display. Noted as featuring various die cast metal parts and "hyper-articulated" joints in key locations, plus an array of accessories focused around the "Ninja" part of "Ninja Consultant". All of that is on display, as well as a run through of all the modes (with odd exception of the iconic submarine form) and some height comparisons with other unofficial figures to demonstrate the largeness of this new figure. We've mirrored all the images, check them out below!

It's out now, and has been spotted at a Danville, Virginia TargetToysRUs by no less than Radio Free Cybertron's own "Headmaster" Don Ferguson!

Groupon, well known broker of local discounts, coupons and such, today has a listing up for the Providence area featuring admission to HasCon. Hasbro's convention takes place in about three weeks, starting September 8th. Right now you can go through Groupon and get three-day adult admission to the event for as low as $85 - almost half off the original purchase price. Single day adult tickets can be had as low as $30, a full 50% off the listed pricing! For locals this is a significant deal, but everyone else still needs to think of travel and hotel costs for visiting the show, which far outstrip the admission costs. You can find a link to the deal page below!
Gorira Prime might sound like a likely name for a planet in some B-grade sci-fi, but in fact it's another upcoming Perfect Effect product. This is a redeco of Beast Gorira taking after the redeco of the real Optimal Optimus: Primal Prime. Look, it was the year 2000, we didn't have as many names to choose from in those days. Don't judge. Gorira Prime is expected to be released in November. No pricing information was officially released, but it can be expected to follow suit with Beast Gorira.

An official Combiner Wars Liokaiser came out as the last of the boxsets for that line last year, but it had a bit of reimagining and was only five members instead of six. And with no Unite Warriors version, a more accurate interpretation seemed unlikely. So one fan by the Twitter handle of @omochasoku02 decided to fill in that gap, and customized a full set, with Breastmaster partners, plus both Leozack and Jallguar who form the torso together, and even Deathcobra, the animation-only single-appearance extra member of the team. This is definitely worth a look, so check out the photos in the gallery below!

Facebook's built-in translator is... not perfect, let's say. Charitably. The name in the headline, "Gold Plating Invincible Admiral Micronesia" is how Facebook translates "Lucky Draw Leader Class Megatron" out of Chinese. Keep reading for the photo, via tfbizonline.me!
This week on RFC: The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop. Did you get yours? We're guessing not. With little fanfare, The Last Knight comes home next month.

THE RETURN OF GALVATRON THE BARBARIAN! Optimus Prime meets with Alpha Trion, the ancient sage, who reveals a tale of Cybertron's earliest days, when the original Thirteen Primes united the world. But even then, the warrior known as Galvatron was a wild card... shaping the future in unexpected ways.

RID's been a great source for new characters and new designs, both of which are something Transformers very much needs a steady supply of. Today, TFW2005 user darkavenger has posted images of his Legion class Twinferno, which was found at a Singapore ToysRUs. Keep reading to see!
