From Weibo user bandaimaru, we've got a few shots of a prototype of Toyworld's unofficial Cosmos figure. What we expect to be Masterpiece scale (which in Autobot Mini-Vehicle terms means probably Deluxe-ish) is seen in full color, making the project at its current stage look quite good, for those to whom the design and proportions of G1 Cosmos hold a special place. The figure doesn't seem to have its own codename yet, and likewise it's maybe a bit too early for release info. But you can sure enjoy looking for now! Check it all out in the gallery below.
Maketoys has posted a new update on Facebook for the next in their RE:Master line of Masterpiece scale figures. We've got new color images of Contact Shot, their take on Targetmaster Pointblank. Various angles and poses of the robot are shown, plus an overview of the vehicle mode including opening canopy with driver compartment. And we get to see a closeup of the Targetmaster figure, plus alternate face and helmet options for the figure. We've got all of it mirrored, so click through to have a look!
Just announced are the MM-X Toro & MM-XI Coprimozzo Set featuring Unofficial Hubcap and Cliffjumper figures from from XTransbots. Toro and Coprimozzo are a pair of transforming street cars that are fashioned on a different, more sporty model, than the old VW Bug. Each of these figures stand about 4.50 inches tall in robot mode and feature die-cast parts and real rubber tires. Read on for more details below.
This evening on Facebook, Fanstoys has shared several images of a color testshot of their upcoming figure Phoenix. This figure is based on Skyfire and his almost entirely made up cartoon model which has not gotten much merchandise attention over the years. Phoenix is scaled for a Masterpiece shelf, leaving it towering over ...well, just about everything, going by the included height comparison shot! While release is projected in Spring of 2017, perhaps a color testshot being ready now could indicate an slightly earlier delivery? Time will tell, but for now click through to see the photos!
The Shanghai SGC event is happening this weekend, and we have an interesting look inside the MMC display. Specifically a few photos have been posted from their Reformatted series and while most of it is previously seen items like their unofficial Tarn, Roadbuster, or recently revealed IDW-inspired Megatron, we have one new reveal: A color testshot of MMC's IDW-based Rodimus. A prototype was seen at TFCon this year, but this is the first showing in color, and it looks like Mastermind has nailed this one. Keep reading to see the photos and photographer credit!
