This weekend in China, a toy show took place that saw quite a number of our usual suspect unofficial robot makers displaying their products. Notables include a look at Toyworld's Coolsville, another of the MP-alike Not-Jazzes, Galaxy Meteor from Maketoys, which is an MP-ish take on Cybertron Starscream. Iron Factory had their seekers out, including prototypes for Conehead versions. And we get a look at one of the many, many ...many... unofficial Springers in the Masterpiece style, from OpenPlay. You can find photos of these and more in the gallery below, as well as photographer credits. Keep reading!
New this weekend on the RFC Reviews Youtube channel is a lengthy look at Phoenix from Fans Toys. This new unofficial take on the G1 cartoon's Skyfire design has been anticipated for quite a while. The video spends some time demonstrating just how very large this figure turned out, dwarfing even most official Combiner toys, not to mention other Masterpieces and unofficial equivalents. In the video, diecast makes sure to note this is a testshot piece and does not have a complete accessory loadout, but all the essentials are accounted for. The video is embedded below, so take a look!
It's a surprise to no one at all, Iron Factory has finally revealed the Black Zarak version of their unofficial Scorponok figure, Lord Scorpion. This Dark Matter Version adds the distinctive spear weapon and redesigned helmet to the figure, which along with the redeco makes a good image of Black Zarak. As we eventually learned, Lord Scorpion is only about as big as a chunky Deluxe, but it's hard to deny how attractive this release is - especially if you have a small-scale figure shelf to add it to!
