The Action Robo Facebook page has put up some shots of a display testshot of Gun Dog, the Masterpiece-styled Hound by MakeToys. At this stage the figure seems to be sporting its final plastic colors, and is just waiting for someone to come at it with a paint brush to realize the final details. MakeToys is recognizing proper scaling, as Gun Dog can be seen a fair bit shorter than Cupola, keeping it on par with the official MPs of the 84-85 Autobot Cars. Click through and take a look!

Group ToyMecha has seemingly launched with photos of a prototype figure based on Punch/Counterpunch, targeting the Masterpiece scale. Seen in comparison with the official Tigertrack, the currently unnamed double-agent is similar in height range with MakeToys' Cupola/Not-Chromedome. We can only glimpse the figure's alternate robot mode so far, but otherwise we're given a decent look at the design. Click through to check out the photos!
Over on their Facebook page, BadCube has published a piece of concept art for "Sunsurge", their take in a Masterpiece-alike Sunstreaker, carrying on from their increasingly popular offerings like Wardog/Warpath and the Insecticon "Evil Bug Corps". They're strongly indicating there will be more of this to be seen at TFCon Toronto later this month, so fans who've been waiting for a Masterpiece option on this character ought to keep watch on this one!

Perfect Effect has announced that they're adding the Constructicons' guns to their PC-07 upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator! In addition, they've announced that both their PC-06 Devastator upgrades and PC-07 Constructicon upgrades should be compatibile with either the Takara or Hasbro releases - though presumably that's the biggest concern for PC-06, as PC-07 largely brings the Hasbro version up to speed with Takara's Unite Warriors UW04 version.
