Mr Elljay has a nice sampling of the displays of various other third party groups. Garatron has a color sample of Thunderstorm, their IDW-inspired Thunderwing, plus apparently two different Unicron prototypes. Planet X showed off a color sample of their Voyager size Fall of Cybertron Optimus, and Master Made has an SD style Scorponok that seems more than slightly inspired by the design of Pandinus! There's that and more to see in the album of mirrored photos - check it out below!
We've got new photos of Planet X's take on Fall of Cybertron Starscream tonight. Shared on Weibo by FaithfulTF, the roughly Voyager size figure tries to capture the details of the game model in a bit different way than the official Deluxe toy did a few years ago. Along with that, it features a large array of accessories, including what most every Starscream anymore ends up with: a crown. Is this something that has a place in your collection? Let us know, and check out the photos mirrored below!

) Set, and TAV62 Starscream! God Optimus Prime is the Hyper Surge Optimus Prime mold in a color scheme more reminiscent of the US Power Surge Prime release, and Starscream is a typically paintier version of the recently-released Warrior-class RID Starscream! Keep reading to see the photos!
Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's Melllvarr, we have some new shots of Combiner Wars Liokaiser.

The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted images (in some cases silhouettes) of the exclusives set to come with MP-33 Inferno, MP-34 Cheetor, and MP-35 Grapple! These Masterpiece figures will ship to non-Japanese Asian territories with miniature diecast figures of Optimus Prime, Optimus Primal, and Ultra Magnus! We don't know at the moment whether these figures will also ship with coins or whether these minifigures have taken the place of the collector coins - but that'd make a lot of sense.

These photos give a good overview of each mode, as well as showing off the combinations with Star Saber - a fusion which is said to weigh a full 4 pounds and amazingly can hold itself together! And as for the size of Victory Saber combined... well, we'll let the pictures tell the tale, and you can find that and more below - keep reading!
MakeToys shared a look at a new prototype they're working on right now on their Facebook page. The figure codenamed Downbeat is a Jazz for their Re:Master unofficial Masterpiece style figure series. Though obviously still at a somewhat early stage, Downbeat shows a simpler style than most other unofficial efforts with this character, resulting in a cleaner look. Whether that simplicity will itself put some possible buyers off will come down to individual taste. Full features, as well as release date and price are to be determined. Keep reading to see the full size picture!

ComingSoon.net has reported on more of the filming for The Last Knight
in London. Most recently they were shooting in the vicinity of Buckingham Palace, with the Bumblebee vehicle and Hot Rod's Lamborghini Centenario vehicle prop taking the main stage, but it seems the new Barricade police car was also making the rounds during part of this filming. The movie shoot has certainly created a stir in England of late, and it looks like they're not letting anyone forget Transformers is still in the neighborhood! You can see some of the photos and a link to the article below.
