Tonight via Alucardlee on Weibo, we've got a photo showing a fully assembled Ragnaros. If you're blanking on the name, that's understandable, as it is but one unlicensed MP-style Bruticus among many. This particular Not-Bruticus is the work of Unique Toys, bringing a little bit different style to the party with something taking a bit more from the cartoon look - a fact in evidence by the coloring of the chest piece including colors from Not-Blast Off, for instance. Keep reading to see the full size photo.
Finally on the Transform Dream Wave front, we have images of a prototype stage upgrade package for Volcanicus. The Power of The Primes Dinobot combiner is in line to get the usual array of new hands and feet, and torso additions to fill out the combined form's proportions. But also included with this set will be weapons for the individual robots, allowing every Dinobot to be armed with sword, gun, or more likely both. Even in the early state shown it seems like a pretty exciting option, and timely enough to compete with the likes of Perfect Effect or any others throwing their hats in the Fix-The-Dinobots game. Click through to see it now!
Transform Dream Wave has new images up of samples for their upgrade sets for the Technobots and Aerialbots. Consisting of new combiner hands and feet, plus torso armor pieces, these sets follow a well worn path for this kind of upgrade, with each part having a dubious transformation to some kind of weapon or other bulky add-on for the individual robots. The parts shown are demonstrated using Unite Warriors releases. Colorwise they should be compatible with Combiner Wars, but Computron's chest armor may encounter difficulties due to the sculpt differences between Hasbro and TakaraTomy releases. You can find all the photos below.
Transform Dream Wave has updated their Weibo with images of upcoming products they're working on currently. Among them is what looks to be a retail-ready (or close to it) upgrade set for Leader class Sixshot. The kit includes a new head, swords, and poseable replacement hands so Sixshot can make all of the ninja hand gestures. Based on the photos it's not entirely clear how good they are at holding the swords, however. The parts are shown installed on an LG Sixshot, but will probably be adequately compatible with the coloring of Titans Return Sixshot as well. Click through to take a look!
Shared on Weibo, we have new photos from TF Dream factory showing the car mode for their unofficial Roadbuster from Dark of The Moon. The sample is shown only in its vehicle mode, designed to reflect the Wrecker in combat form with weapons, boosters, and armor all deployed, matching the other two unlicensed movie Wreckers TF Dream Factory is producing. You can click through to find the quick gallery just below.
Maketoys released Meteor last year, producing a new, unlicensed Masterpiece style Starscream for their Re:Master series, offering an alternative in styling and engineering to the long-worn official Masterpiece seeker body. In a move only surprising in how long it took to get there, we now have full color images for two more Re:Master seekers - Lightning, representing Thundercracker, and Skycrow as Skywarp. As you might expect, they are redecos of Meteor, so if you liked what that figure was about, these should be right up your alley. Check out the images below!
Newcomer M-Deck is making a strong first appearance in the unofficial Transformers-derived merchandise scene with Ion Blaster Commander, a human-scale replica of Optimus Prime's iconic rifle. Coming in at 39 inches long (or about 1 meter), M-Deck presents this rifle replica as being approximately 1/10 scale. The final product is planned to have numerous lighting elements and sounds, and the images of the current prototype look promising. You can find those photos plus more info below!

Mister Moon - who we've talked about once before for an unofficial Cliffjumper - has shared a new testshot sample they're working on to their Facebook page. "Fighter" is their go at Inferno in the Legends scale, though a Grapple is also clearly part of that plan since the robot model shown distinctly features detail of that character while the vehicle mode is configured as a firetruck. The all-white testshot makes details hard to see, which might be why some have been drawn on. We'll have to wait and see to get a better idea of these figures. In the meantime, click through to see the photo!
For those worried after the whereabouts of the remaining members of the Decepticon Justice Division, being released in unofficial form from Mastermind Creations, this should be a mostly happy update! A post on Instagram shows an early prototype for Tesarus, one of the two larger members of the group. The image caption notes sending it to the factory for tooling, suggesting this is 3D printed or otherwise a one off, probably as an engineering proof to make sure everything about the eventual produced item works as intended. But unfortunately this means it's probably several months before the finished version could possibly be released. Click through to take a look.
The first video preview of the Desolataur prototype is up. Crowd funding will start on February 27th, 2015. Note: This is a resin prototype, so it literally wears as you move it. The final product will be made of high quality plastic, will be painted, and will have chains.
TFCToys' Weibo Page has posted the final color images of upcoming combiner limbs Warning Line, better known as Protectobot Groove, and Aethon, better known as Predacon Tantrum. These figures will form legs for Prometheus/Defensor and Ares/Predaking. See the pictures below!
FPcore have updated their site with the backstory fiction for their Recoiler and Riftshot characters that are part of the FPcore Project Ground Hammer. Get the insights on who and where these new characters came from with profile information on both of the Twins below for the full preview now.
Wanted to let people know that KFC are sending out free replacements for the problem-ridden guns for their Ironpaw and Nightstalker figures. Good on them for fixing this issue! "Hey! Fans of KFCTOYS. We tested the new shoulder cannon for Ironpaw ,and put up a video of how it works just with your nail to rotate it out. This new shoulder cannon will be shipped to the retailers very soon.including silver for CST-02J and metal gray for CST-02NS."
UPDATE. Dr. Wu just posted a poll on his weibo page, with numbers 1 to 9 and the following instructions (translated from Chinese with google): "MP police shoulder cannon made some settings, please vote choice, choose up to three per person." So it looks these cannons are for Masterpiece Prowl, and he's asking the fans to choose the three designs he will make. Post your favorites in the comments below.

Does PC-16 Jinrai Prime Work With Powermaster Optimus Prime, Magnus Prime, & Super Ginrai Without PC-15?
Thanks to a video by YouTuber maxlovesamber, we can say that the answer is yes! PC-16 Jinrai Prime can be combined with all three versions of the Titans Return Leader Powermaster Optimus Prime/Legends Series LG35 Super Ginrai/Siege on Cybertron Leader Magnus Prime without the Powermaster and new head added by the Perfect Effect PC-15 set! It's not perfect, and requires some partsforming as Max demonstrates, but at least you can do it. Keep reading to see!
Japanese speaking YouTube reviewer Wotafa has just released his review of Demonicus Prominon, Mastermind Creation's Nemesis Prime-themed recolor of Seraphicus Prominon, their unofficial Nova Prime. Besides being impressively large, the figure - an exclusive to the Singapore Toy, Game, & Comic Convention - sports the always attractive "Nemesis" color scheme as well as a lot of vac-metal. Man, handle with care... keep reading to see the review!
Paik4Life has posted a video to Youtube showing off the testshot build of MMC's Carnifex figure that was on display at Cyber City Con last weekend. This long awaited figure based on IDW's interpretation of Overlord is shown off in robot and vehicle forms, though the transformation was not allowed to be filmed. However, the video gives a good overview of this huge figure, showing off its articulation and details in particular. We have that video embedded for you, so click through to watch it!
The latest work from harrisloureiro has just been posted to Youtube. This time the skilled stop motion animator presents a fight between Warpath, as played by Badcube's Wardog, and Astrotrain using DX9's Chigurh. We're always really happy to see new works from this producer, and this latest video certainly does not disappoint - except maybe that the video doesn't run longer! We have it embedded below, so click through and enjoy!
A video has been posted showing the process of upgrading Combiner Wars Devastator with parts from a testshot of the X2Toys add on. Interestingly while providing almost entire new forearms and hands, the kit still calls for the original wrist plates to be used with the new parts. Otherwise everything seems a simple matter of snapping pieces on during the combination process. The video was originally posted to the Miaopai service, but we've mirrored it to Youtube for easy viewing. Click through to watch!
