Site sponsor TFSource has just posted preorders for three sets of addons for MP-10 Masterpiece Optimus. These sets by Shadow Fisher offer LED lighting options for the eyes and Matrix chamber, new upper arm pieces to tweak the proportions as well as equipping an energon axe, and finally offering an option for metal smokestack replacements available either alone, or with the arms and axe. We've got the images for all of these, so click through and check it out, then head over to TFSource.



Fanstoys continues their series of transforming robot dinosaur figures with their FT-07 STOMP figure. This is N. 4 in their Iron Dibots line, following Scoria, Soar, and Sever. Here, we get some first looks at the gray prototype images of homage to the G1 Sludge sludge character shown in robot and alternate Dino modes. Its looking quite good with that nice detailing on the alternate mode. Read on to see the images for more info.



Fans have sought out a way to get this for years, and it seems it will finally be within reach. A figure modeled after the Signal Lancer character from Transformers Cybertron will be produced by Nonnef, based on a design by TreadshotA1. Signal Lancer was notable by having the alt mode of a traffic light, a novelty that drove a desire for a toy, which never officially happened. Alert Knight will join Nonnef's lineup of products later this year. Click through to see the computer render image!



Retro Robot Radio recently got a chance to review the painted prototype of the Play With This Too Desolataur action figure. You can see it live here.



Thanks to Daim Choc who has been rounding up the images from Thailand Toy Expo 2015. We have a look at lots of new third party goodness including the MegaSteel MS-01 Granville, Maketoys Guardia (test shot), Maketoys RM-01 Cupola (test shot), Maketoys Guardia prototype, Maketoys Citizen Set 01 and more.



As discovered by Daim Choc on 2005, new photos of Mega Steel's MS-01 Granville have appeared on Weibo! The figure is a dead ringer for Don Figueroa's design for Megatron as seen in IDW's Stormbringer series, and is a not-unreasonable match for More Than Meets The Eye Megatron if the Combiner Wars Leader class figure isn't doing it for you. Keep reading to see!



X-Transbots has updated their Facebook page with a new cover image that depicts a Cyclonus-inspired vehicle flying with their Scourge-And-Sweep-alike Andras. Coded 86 MK-III, it seems that X-Transbots will be following on their not-Scourge with a similarly scaled Cyclonus figure. With this progression, can a Galvatron be very far behind? Click through to check out the image!



Courtesy of Daim Choc on Twitter, there's a new teaser image for SXS' latest figure: R-04 Hot Flame, which looks very much like it's based on Hot Rod/Rodimus' design from More Than Meets The Eye. Keep reading to see!



There’s a difference between fake or counterfeit Transformers that are meant to fool collectors into thinking they are buying official product and a bootleg that is immediately distinguishable from a Hasbro or Takara figure. While both are intended to profit from and take unlicensed advantage of the Transformers brand and its supporters, some collectors can find themselves quite drawn to particular knockoffs.



Vangelus has posted a new review video featuring a pre-release copy of Chiguhr, DX9 Toys' take on a jumbo-size notionally Masterpiece-compatible Astrotrain. While the review goes over the stylistic mismatch between Chiguhr and actual Masterpieces, it makes a strong case for identifying the toy with a Classics collection. Keep reading to have a look at the embedded video!

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!

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.
