Oh ok, so it's an homage to Tote, pass! My hasbro classics Ironhide stands in for Tote quite well.

Mine hit my PoL today and I set it to ship. Hopefully I'll see it next week.

Well, with that mold you could make black Ironhide, green Ratchet, SG Soundwave, or maybe Energon Tow Line. I really wasn't expecting them to pick Tote.

I could only guess it was Tote. I wonder if they'll make a First Aid next. Any other vans besides the black Cherry Vanette?

BBTS has just revealed a limited run remold of iGear's Weapon Specialist. 500 pieces. Slight recolor of Weapon Specialist with a new head, made to look like Micromaster Tote! He only comes with one gun, and sells for $99.99(about $30 less than Weapon Specialist). (link) Patrol ... read more

At least the head isn't based on US comic and animation Chromedome, such an awful take on him, the japanese Headmasters series had such a better animation model for Chromedome than US rebirth animation model.

Could be worse, they could be going off US Marvel G1 comic colors. I just started re-reading that series lately... OMG some huge mistakes in there lol.

With the way they color comics today, I'm not surprised there's some confusing as to the coloring on MTMTE Chromedome.

Possibly. Though I'd say by trying to do both at once, they ended up doing neither correctly and it would have been better to commit to one or the other and get it right. Although, I think it they were looking to IDW as a color model, then they should have had the arms and head be matching color... read more

More Third Party News
Though it currently lacks a codename for itself, ToyWorld has unveiled a prototype of the Swoop component of their team of Masterpiece-scale Dinobots. The design takes very much after classic Swoop in having an extremely square beast mode, though it leads to a nice looking robot. Seen here also is the entire ToyWorld dinosaur team combined together, albeit made about half of prototype figures at this stage. Click through and have a look!
Through the Facebook page of The Falcon's Hangar, we have our first look at a new Mastermind Creations recolor. Alas, despite bearing the name Grandus Hexatron, it is not a third party take on everyone's favorite city block/carrier/coffee table from Battlestars. Instead this is a retool of Hexatron as the character Greatshot from Transformers Victory, who was an Autobot retool of the original Sixshot. Price and release info is to be announced, but for now click through and check out the photos!
Pictures of what looks to be a retail-ready production sample of Iron Factory's small-scale Ultra Magnus figure have popped up via a couple of Weibo accounts. One gives a good quick overview of the Magnus-based figure itself, while the other teases what's obviously a Diaclone, Powered Convoy based deco ...along with one more in just red and white that we aren't quite sure what it is, assuming it's anything more than just a random-colors testshot. Click through to have a look and decide for yourself!
Surely about 5 years ago, something like this would have been completely inconceivable? A high quality transformers product created by a new company, completely unaffiliated with the official manufacturers and based entirely on an original character created for an official Transformers comic by a fanfic writer who made it and illustrated by a fan artist who made it.
A couple images have turned up today showing a new third party Constructicon project. The prototype seen so far only in incomplete Devastator configurations is being attributed to DX9 Toys, as part of their War In Pocket line of Legends-scale figures. If these are what they seem, we could have a very interesting project getting underway, although most might think that any existing Devastator is already technically scaled better for Legends Class figures. Personally, I just hope they'll come in an orange variation. Click through and have a look at the prototype photos!
