Garatron has posted testshot images to Weibo showing of the second in their Gand of Devils line! Following up on their impressive IDW Thunderwing will be G.o.D.-02 Galaxy Destroyer, a take on Unicron very, very similar to the unproduced Beast Wars Neo version that we've all seen photos for over the years. While not an exact match, it's close enough that you'd almost hope a grayscale version is produced just for fun. Click through to see more!



539Designs, one of the designers who contribute to X-Transbots has posted an update to their DeviantArt account today. The print form of the just-released Arkose's instructions are apparently missing a panel depicting a portion of the transformation process. The missing portion has been published to DeviantArt along with the immediate prior and subsequent steps to show where this part is meant to take place. We've mirrored this image and cropped out the relevant panel as well for higher detail. Keep reading to get the info for this unofficial Beachcomber!



MakeToys really knocked it out of the park with MTRM-03 Hellfire and MTRM-05 Wrestle. These homages to the Transformers characters Inferno and Grapple are so immaculately done that they’re hard to put down. The build, colors, and even finish are extremely impressive in-hand and even the ratcheting areas feel very strong with small enough ratchet spaces to not feel like they’re restrictive in terms of movement/posing.



Third party Transformers news for the week ending January 31th, 2016. Includes the latest news from Clonedroid, FansProject, Generation Toys, Iron Factory, Maketoys, Mastermind Creations, Perfect Effect, Second Chance, TransForm Mission, and KOs.



On Facebook via The Chosen Prime we have a few new photos of Arkose, X-Transbots' Beachcomber-alike in their Master Mini series. The photos show the final production toy, looking at the package, the insert tray (including a glimpse of the accessories), both modes and a size comparison to the official Masterpiece Bumblebee, showing Arkose to be just a bit taller. You can keep reading to see all the pictures of this figure, which should be hitting retailers now.



Hot on the heels, palms, face, and breastplate of PE's Computron upgrades come a set of upgrades for pretty much the rest of Combiner Wars! Improvements for Optimus Maximus, Bruticus, and G2 Superion will be available between April and May. On top of that, they've announced replacement parts to address an issue with their PC-06 kit for Combiner Wars Devastator that caused a loosening of the wrist joints. Keep reading for all of the details!



Before Combiner Wars Computron is officially announced or even acknowledged, Perfect Effect has already debuted yet another variation of their Perfect Combiner upgrade system geared around the Technobot combiner. Coming in two sets, one is a chest piece, head and rifle, and the other features the customary poseable hands and feet in a dark red. The move isn't an entirely blind shot. The torso upgrade itself has merit with or without a Computron box set being a reality, though it sadly does little to fix the color layout issues. But it's a bizarre state of affairs to see unofficial upgrades announced before the toy they're made for. Keep reading to see the pictures!



Today on Weibo, X-Transbots has shared new photos of their Master Mini series of figures. Now in production are Boost, based on Windcharger, and Hatch, based on Tailgate. These are part of X-Transbots' Masterpiece-compatible line, and each features an option part or two to help the figures reflect either media appearances or be a little more toy-oriented. With these samples being from the actual production run, retailers should be seeing these come in stock pretty soon. We've mirrored the photos, so click through to check them out.



Just posted are pre-orders for the BadCube OTS-Special 01 Sentinel Blaze figure, a homage to the Diaclone Red Sunstreaker. Old Time Series Blaze is a transforming robot that turns into a red sports car. He features a full body paint job and several chrome accessories. This item is priced at $83.99 to begin shipping in March 2016 - order now at bigbadtoystore.com.



Site sponsor TFSource has posted images of Badcube's Sentinel Blaze, a release of their OTS-08 Sunsurge in Sunstreaker's original Diaclone Red! The figure is due in late March, and a preorder is available on TFSource's webside. Keep reading to see!

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.

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!


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.


Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has video of FansToys' Grenadier! While Third Party toys are forbidden at BotCon proper, there's a dealer room across the street at the St. Charles Hilton where this figure was being shown off! Keep reading to have a good look for yourself!


Radio Free Cybertron's diecast is still at Toy Fair in New York, and he's taken plenty of photos and video at the Play With This Too booth! We've got grayscale hardcopies on hand of Desolataur in both stills and video, and more. Keep reading to see it all!
