FansProject has posted a bunch of photos of upcoming figures this morning, including LER-04 Severo (AKA Grimlock) and its DX version which comes with a crown and throne! Also on display are Ryu-Oh (Dinoking) and the Tricerabot shell for its core figure Dinoichi(Kakuryu)! Read on to see it all!
Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook again offers a set of excellent photos. This time looking at the just-released Unite Warriors Menasor wearing the Perfect Combiner PC-01 hands and feet and the PC-04 body kit. Besides showing how the parts look on the Takara release, they do a great job of demonstrating just what kind of mobility Menasor can have using the parts. If you've been on the fence about either upgrade, these might be what sells you. Click through to see it yourself!
From the Facebook page of Genmon Photo Vault, we've got a great look at the color testshot of Boost, X-Transbots' take on Windcharger. Though this example is said to be without any paint work, it's already looking quite nice, and the photos go through a nice overview including a step-by-step look at how the arms and legs transform, plus size comparisons with similar figures. There's also a couple quick glimpses of a testshot of Hatch - the unofficial Tailgate sharing this mold. Click through to check it out!
Toyworld has released new photos showing off a fully assembled copy of their dinosaur combiner. Having been seen previously as generally incomplete assemblies and without production colors, this is our first real look at the intended outcome of Toyworld's Dinobot project, and it certainly is something! We'll have to wait to see if other angles change the perception, but at the moment it's very much living up to the legacy of Dinobot combiners.
