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!

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.
