BBTS has just updated the listing with a new picture, and says that it will include a Tote head AND an Ironhide head. The sales pitch on Patrol Specialist seems to have shifted from "Spend $100 on an obscure Micromaster homage" to "Spend $20 less to get iGear's Ironhide... read more

Pretty neat, I like the head sculpt. A Tote homage is pretty unexpected. I'd never buy it, but I do think its nice.

Head sculpts were just released for others repaints of this mold. Looks like the are making G1 First Aid, Energon Tow Line and Micromaster Fixit. (link)

I like the mold, but I'm fcar from being in love with it enough to buy it 5 or 6 times at $100+ a pop, the initial two was all I needed, and I absolutely love those two

It was made once, I had a link to it at one time in my earlier post. I think Bacon merged it into the wrong thread. Anyways, according to those in the know, this is the first of several limited run remolds/recolors of this mold. Expect a Diaclone Ironhide and some others.

If I didn't have a problem with this mold in the first place, I'd probably buy Patrol Specialist. The way that front bumper folds away for the robot mode is a little confusing. The hinge on my Not-Ratchet broke when I tried to transform it in a way that, to me, made sense, but it wasn'... read more

The original thread didn't get deleted, it was never made, instead it was posted in the thread on Function X-1 Chromedome

Somehow the original thread about this figure got deleted, but it's actually Micromaster Tote from the Offroad Patrol.

I see no need for this figure, as he does not look like any G1 character. Now if they were trying to do what FP did with Steel Core that is a completely different thing

It looks like FansHobby's Gunfighter II (G2 Laser Optimus) is getting a fair bit of attention this week. FansHobby have posted a quick gallery of the current testshot, showing the poseability and accessories primarily. They note that at least some of these images are partially Photoshopped to represent the intended final deco, due to the recently highlighted design alterations delaying their ability to have their factory prepare them a deco proof sample right now. But most of the photos seem to clearly depict the plastic-colors testshot with no extra colors added anyway. Gunfighter II is expected to release in June. Keep reading for the mirrored gallery!
The Perfect Effect Origin Leonidas figure stands about 9" (23cm) tall in robot mode and contains die-cast parts. This fierce transforming beast changes from a robot warrior into a lion and boasts over 60 points of articulation.
Fanshobby has posted some new pictures to their Facebook page, showing the latest full color testshot of Gunfighter II, the Optimus Prime recolor of their Scourge/Black Convoy figure, Arch Enemy. Gunfighter II shows some of the minor revisions now that Fanshobby highlighted recently, such as the modified chest panels. Also new to this round of photography is a showing of the two guns this release will come with: both a classic G1 Optimus rifle, and the double barrel Laser Prime gun, depicted here as a prototype while the mold for it is being worked on. We've mirrored the photos below, click through to have a look!
From our forums, TMan978 has shared a video of an interesting new figure. Wei Jiang, known fairly well for making upscaled, surprisingly high quality knockoffs of both official products and the occasional third party item has recently made an upsized iteration of Generations Arcee, theoretically scaled to Masterpiece figures. There's a few other things altered with the figure too, though probably more on the minor side. Check out the embedded video below to have a look at this offering.
The Facebook page TF Robots has shared several photos showing an early prototype for what's reported as a new project from Unique Toys. Currently only identified as Y-05, the figure represents Lockdown from Age of Extinction. This is believed to be roughly Leader scale, and from the pictures is intended to include quite a bit in the way of accessories - including one of the attack dog units seen on Lockdown's ship. The robot shows little immediate sign of how it will transform, but the absence of backside images could suggest a lot of panels on the rear. We've got all the images below, keep reading to see!
