Following up on the reveal of Tyrantron, Mastermind Creations posted a design graphic that reveals the toy's second configuration as the gladiatorial mining robot Tyrantronus. The change is achieved with alternate chest, head, and shoulder parts, as well as involving a different arm weapon. The giant drill suggests that the figure will be able to be configured as a vehicle other than the jet mode seen already. If it can become a drill tank, it probably wouldn't be hard to make a battle tank out of either. Keep reading to see the images.
The Facebook page for MMC's Ocular Max offshoot has posted new photos showing the prototype for their Perfection Series Saltus - yet another third party Masterpiece Springer. This one is noted to offer alternate heads for cartoon or toy influence, as well as differing shoulder arrangements to match, all while boasting 40 points of articulation. The Facebook post projects availability in the second quarter of 2017, but of course no pricing is available at this stage. Click through now to see the mirrored photos!
Mastermind Creations shared out some photos of their various displayed goods via their Facebook page today. Their Masterpiece-alike offerings seemed to be a prominent player, including a hand-painted yellow version of their Trailbreaker to represent its Diaclone colors, seemingly to measure interest in it as a potential future release. Many Reformatted figures were on hand, including the Tyrantron IDW-style Megatron we saw first earlier today. There's a nice big gallery, so click through and start having a look!
FansToys certainly has no problem with ambition! Their latest reveal, FT-20, is nothing less than an Omega Supreme designed to interact with Masterpiece Transformers. The figure takes its cues largely from the cartoon, with its overly boxy form as a robot, and simplified alternate mode look. But where this really tries to sell itself is its size, and as you can see in the mirrored gallery, it suitably towers over basically everything. More alarming is the hint that FansToys might have a Devastator on the way at the same size! Keep reading to see everything!
The next stage of the warring third parties seems to be kicking off. Hot on the heels of Hasbro's genuine modern Sixshot, two of the third party companies have debuted their own efforts. DX9 has revealed Hanzo (or Hanzuo, according to at least one DX9 posting), which was on hand at TFCon this weekend. Subsequently, GCreations has shown off the CG design for their stab, which currently seems to not have progressed to the point of a code name. You can find images of both below and compare and contrast for yourself!
