MP-20 has barely been out a week, and already there's an announcement of Third Party parts for him! The twist is that this is a new group, the Guild of Concoctious Intent (nice name!), formed by members of the 2005 forums. The cannons will mount on Wheeljeck's shoulders, have a mounting part for vehicle mode, and even work with the MP Sideswipe mold! Keep reading for more info and pictures!
Just out are new images of the Keith's Fantasy Club Haiku action figure. This toy is a third party Transformer homage to the Predacon Sky-Byte. Get a look at the box and the painted figure in his robot shark mode for a the full look at the product release.
Maketoys has posted a slew of new photos for their MT-05LTE Gento (pronounced "Gen Two," no doubt) and its variations. Patterned closely after Reveal The Shield Laser Optimus Prime, Gento serves as a centerpiece for the updated Battle Tanker set, now known as Battle Sentinel. It is or will be also available in pretty much every variation FunPub ever did of the RTS Prime mold: Scourge (MT-04 The Nemesis), Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus (MT-02B Interspace Dagger Army Commando), and SG Optimus Prime (MT-02P Battle Sentinel SP SG). Keep reading to see selected photos!
Toy collector display maker Toystages has posted a variety of backdrops to their site recently that may interest Transformer collectors.
These backdrops are all designed to help you set up fun displays of your figures. The scenes on these backdrops include the headquarters of the Autobots and Decepticons, the desert, and their home planet of Cybertron, as well as backdrops based on 1984 toy box art. 15 different ones to choose from.
