We just recently saw photos showing final or near-final samples of Generation Toy's first two unofficial Constructicon figures which already painted both in a favorable light. Today we have more photos from guanchengphoto on Weibo which go to even greater lengths in making these figures really stand out and look great. It's debatable how necessary these are at this point, but if you're still looking for that perfect Devastator, these are sure giving it a good try! Click through for the mirrored photos.
On their Facebook page, Voodoo Robots has posted a few new photos showing that their Ratchet-derived figure Salus is close to being ready to head out for sale. While the images note final colors may vary still, it has a very complete looking deco and is presenting quite a bit more strongly than the testshots seen at Botcon this summer. Keep reading to check it out!
It is truly the age of combiners, as now to balance the scales tipping towards the various Devastators, we have a new player turning up to give Menasor a shot. TransFormMission has posted prototype photos of Breakdown and Wildrider, showing them in robot forms in some detail, and vehicle forms in various groupings. They also provided a size comparison to Masterpiece Sideswipe to give a sense of the intended scale. A largely greyed over diagram of their intended Menasor was posted as well, which we've enhanced for better visibility. Click through to see it all!
Mastermind Creations has posted photos of a black and purple redeco of their main five Feral rex figures to their Facebook page, announcing them as an exclusive set to be sold at STGCC, the Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention, taking place on September 12 and 13. No pricing is mentioned currently, but between the original prices and being a limited run exclusive, we can start to image. As far as distribution outside the convention, it will likely depend on what stock is left afterward. Keep reading to check out the photos.
FansProject Photodump For August: Severo (Grimlock) Plus Ryu-Oh Photos & Dinoichi With Tricerabot Pretender Shell!
FansProject has posted a bunch of photos of upcoming figures this morning, including LER-04 Severo (AKA Grimlock) and its DX version which comes with a crown and throne! Also on display are Ryu-Oh (Dinoking) and the Tricerabot shell for its core figure Dinoichi(Kakuryu)! Read on to see it all!
Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook again offers a set of excellent photos. This time looking at the just-released Unite Warriors Menasor wearing the Perfect Combiner PC-01 hands and feet and the PC-04 body kit. Besides showing how the parts look on the Takara release, they do a great job of demonstrating just what kind of mobility Menasor can have using the parts. If you've been on the fence about either upgrade, these might be what sells you. Click through to see it yourself!
From the Facebook page of Genmon Photo Vault, we've got a great look at the color testshot of Boost, X-Transbots' take on Windcharger. Though this example is said to be without any paint work, it's already looking quite nice, and the photos go through a nice overview including a step-by-step look at how the arms and legs transform, plus size comparisons with similar figures. There's also a couple quick glimpses of a testshot of Hatch - the unofficial Tailgate sharing this mold. Click through to check it out!
Toyworld has released new photos showing off a fully assembled copy of their dinosaur combiner. Having been seen previously as generally incomplete assemblies and without production colors, this is our first real look at the intended outcome of Toyworld's Dinobot project, and it certainly is something! We'll have to wait to see if other angles change the perception, but at the moment it's very much living up to the legacy of Dinobot combiners. To see it for yourself, click through and check out the full image.
Generation Toy has added a new post on their Weibo page showing off what seems to be finalized deco copies of their first two Gravity Builder figures. Seen recently as color testshots, the figures now have a much more complete finish with necessary paint detail added. The text of the post also suggests GT-1A might have been renamed from "Scraper" to the less-obvious "Forklift Truck", though machine translation is hardly the most reliable source for this.

Optimus, Maximized - Combiner Wars Optimus Maximus Featuring Perfect Combiner PC-04 & PC-05 Upgrades
Coming from Moon_Base_TF on Twitter, we have a few photos showing off a complete Optimus Maximus, notably giving us an early look at the combiner that very few have managed to assemble so far. But beyond that, it's also shown using the white hands and feet from Perfect Effect's PC-05 set, and the Menasor torso add-on from PC-04. Both things work together to make a pretty nice looking finalized combined form. We've got the shots mirrored, so keep reading and 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.

A video was posted to Weibo by a user we haven't been able to identify just yet, showing a somewhat large figure based on Beast Wars Dinobot. Going by the way it's designed, we're assuming this is the work of an unofficial group, but right now any conclusion is complete speculation. The video is now mirrored to Youtube for easier viewing, and we've got it embedded below, so click through and take a look.
