In that ever-wacky arena of unofficial parts for unofficial toys, we have new testshot photos of an upgrade package for the Revolver figure by Fansproject derived from Roadbuster. Made by "JS Industries", this replaces the armor units Fansproject provided with a set of recolors, and attempts to expand on their functionality. Seen here in an extremely awkward "drone" mode, it will break down in to weapons and armor for a Revolver figure. Click through to see all the photos.



Planet X has updated their Facebook page with photos of a color sample of the upcoming PX-04 Summanus, a Fall of Cybertron version of Snarl! With a sword very similar to FoC Grimlock's and what appears to be a Scatter Blaster, Summanus is looking really good! Planet X says that this isn't the final production version, so we'll be sure to keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, keep reading to see the photos!



On the TFormers Forums, Scaleface has assembled the week's worth of Play With This Too news- and it's been a busy week! Color guides have been posted for previously-known characters Bite Mark and D-Kay, as well as a new character, R-Buke, who is a Tech Drone jet in G1 Dreadwind colors! Also present are full renders of Desolataur, headshots of more new characters by artist Candice Santora, and an intriguing set of 5mm-compatible accessory staves by newcomer Albie Lim, whose picture you'll find in the gallery. Keep reading to see it all!



DX9 has updated their Weibo page with images of their Micro Worlds X05 figure, a Legends-scaled version of G1 Cyclonus! It's decent looking for the scale, with a slightly squashed jet more that wouldn't look out of place with your QTransformers. It even seems to come with a weapon patterned after Cyclonus' Targetmaster partner Nightstick! Keep reading to see more!



Maketoys has posted teaser images and a brief description for a new line of figures titled Re:Master. The name and text seem to imply a "new scale," and puts heavy emphasis on the concept of scale in general. Current speculation is that the figures - interpretations of Chromedome, Hound, and Inferno shown only in silhouette- will be in the post-MP-10 Masterpiece scale, but nothing is known as of yet. Keep reading to see!



The amusingly named Xipoo company is reportedly manufacturing block kits that are in the vague style of Kre-O Microcombiners, but fully brick-built instead of minifigure based. A series of five kits features dinosaurs that can change to robot models, and a full set can be rebuilt to make "Ultimate Warrior Dino King". We have a few sales listing images mirrored, and while we might not recommend trying to purchase these, they're an entertaining look at the more creative than usual side of the knockoff trade, much like the lego-style Angry Bird Transformers figures we reported back in December.



Badcube has debuted their newest upcoming products this afternoon, taking on a trio of figures based on the Insecticons. Badcube says they should scale well to their other products Brawny and the upcoming Wardog, but they don't offer any objective size reference so far. But, they say these figures should release around the same time as Wardog, so they may not be very far off. Click through to check out the photos!



Play With This Too has another slew up updates this week. New detailed color sheets has come out of their characters Ankhor, Bloodbath Flarestrike and Mighty Muscules. A new Head Shots set has been revealed. Vol. 6 was designed by Trent Troop and includes an homage to Dinosaucers. And much more!



CYBERGEEKS Alliance has posted images of Unique Toys' Y-01 Provider to their Facebook page. Based on the triple-changer Octane, Unique Toys seems to be living up to their name in that they seem to have created an Octane toy that looks good in all three modes. Keep looking and see it for yourself!

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.

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."

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
