Back with my latest upgrade kit. This time I produced a major redesign for FP/ROTF Brawl. This upgrade kit includes a proper turret, new head, new tank treads that will turn into his arms and feet (no more duck feet) and also eliminates the back kibble. I worked on the design for a few months and it went through multiple ideas and lots of retooling to get everything to workout the way I wanted.



You may remember the April fools image the X2 toys posted as a tumbler type car and a voltron lion. Well, they just posted some prototype parts images standing next to the G1 Autobot clones, which highly suggest they are making the clones Fastlane/Cloudraker and Pounce/Wingspan! Read on the see the images for more details.

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.


Meteor Operation is asking opinions on behalf of a third party TF company that's looking at making a Masterpiece sized Ultra Magnus figure. They want to know size of their figure. Should it be scaled to slightly taller than MP10 in robot mode and have a smallish vehicle mode, or have the same size vehicle as MP10 with trailer, and for a much larger robot? You can vote on the TF Masterpiece Ultra Magnus project now at Meteor Operation


It's been quiet for a while... too quiet. Rest assured though, as we are developing ideas on how to push FPC forward and maintain a unique course for the future. We've been working on new features for the site as well as hiring new staff that will help us to continue our vision. This process has not come easy and has taken a while to fund and get the right people on board to help us build and to support this idea.

Soon after the excellent Boosticus stop motion, we now have a short featuring X-Transbots' MP-Minis Stax and Krank, interacting with other Masterpiece figures in a papercraft Autobot Headquarters environment. This is another high quality stop motion piece and definitely worth checking out. See the video embedded below!


X-Transbots has posted a video on their Facebook page showing a fantastic stop motion recreation of the the assembly of Bruticus in Fall of Cybertron, using the EchoTF Boosticus upgrade kit to fill in the toy's gaps. We don't get stop motion with Transformers a lot, and this one is done really well. Check out the quick video clip below!


I saw this appear on Youtube, so I thought I'd let everyone else know... I wasn't even aware they did a third party panel. Starts with talking about how you make 3PT, then goes into questions, then slides of some upcoming products. Watch the two part videos below for the full view of the Charticon 2013 Third Party panel videos.


Thanks to Christopher Santiago who has posted some information about a problem with the TFC Toys Uranos F4 Phantom: "Just got my tfc uranos f4 phantom the other day. There seems to be a problem with the hip rachets because it just clicked a few times then eventually began to squeak now. I think the rachets are chewing the hip connections and the left tip of the wing on mine were it folds is misaligned thus not being able to fold completely compared to the right one. Hope you could address these issues as with what you did with hercules. I am a big fan of your products. More power. Thanks" Watch Christopher's video for the full details below.


Master Mind Creations are shippting their The Awakening edition that portrays the Airborne Squad obtaining their earth form and recovering from the hibernation mode. Product wise, it is made to resemble the feeling of a prototype, with the quality of a finished product. The figure offered orginally at the San Jose Super Toy Show and later by Ages 3 and Up is now arriving with some new images of the packaging and a video review by Peaugh giving us the scoop on this interesting exclusive toy.
