Meteor Operation has presented us with several photos of a new third party product. Well known accessory maker Dr. Wu has branched off and formed Dr. Q, which for the moment seems to be engaging in making SD-style figures of Transformers characters. The first example is an Optimus and Grimlock based on the G1 designs, but made for Optimus to ride Grimlock as in the movies. We don't have any release information yet, but for now you can keep reading to check out the photos!



Just in via Uranus an TFSource we have some new looks at the KFC's Transistor Boom Box Mode images. Get a look more photos of KFC's transistor which will be released soon! Preorder yours now at TFSource.com. Read on to see the Boom Box mode and more images now.



Mega Steel has released a new picture of their Buster figure based on G1 Blaster. This roughly Voyager size figure can now be seen in what we expect are final production colors and paint applications, and while it diverges a bit more from the image of Blaster, it still looks quite nice! They're expecting final shipment from their factory next month, so these should hit your retailer of choice soon after that. Keep reading for the full size photo.

Chinese toy brick company XSZ had released some unlicensed Lego-style mini-figures inspired by the Angry Birds Transformers. The whole set of 8 figures is available from China from under $12 including shipping. Oddly these are NOT Kreon style figures, but Lego-style Mini-Figures.



After showing off a resin prototype piece much earlier this year, Mega Steel has broken silence and come up with new photos showing their toy based on Don Figueroa's Megatron design from the IDW "Stormbringer" miniseries. Now in the testshot phase, we can see something closer to an actual production-ready design, and for the first time we can see some metal elements in the design. We don't have any release details to share right now, but this is looking pretty nice. 2014 was The Year of Predakings - will 2015 be the year of Unofficial Megatrons?



Warbotron showed off pictures of their upcoming not-Scattershot Technobot combiner WB-03E in robot, space ship and gun emplacement modes today on Facebook.

Via their Weibo account, DX9 Toys has shared new color sample images of their upcoming figures based on G1 Scourge and Ratchet. Joining the ranks of their other Legends-scale offerings meant to interact with Generations Metroplex, these small figures make good representations of their intended characters and are sure to please collectors a little more inclined towards Cyberverse and legends-style figures.

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
