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

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!
