The amusingly named Xipoo company is reportedly manufacturing block kits that are in the vague style of Kre-O Microcombiners, but fully brick-built instead of minifigure based. A series of five kits features dinosaurs that can change to robot models, and a full set can be rebuilt to make "Ultimate Warrior Dino King". We have a few sales listing images mirrored, and while we might not recommend trying to purchase these, they're an entertaining look at the more creative than usual side of the knockoff trade, much like the lego-style Angry Bird Transformers figures we reported back in December.
Badcube has debuted their newest upcoming products this afternoon, taking on a trio of figures based on the Insecticons. Badcube says they should scale well to their other products Brawny and the upcoming Wardog, but they don't offer any objective size reference so far. But, they say these figures should release around the same time as Wardog, so they may not be very far off. Click through to check out the photos!
Play With This Too has another slew up updates this week. New detailed color sheets has come out of their characters Ankhor, Bloodbath Flarestrike and Mighty Muscules. A new Head Shots set has been revealed. Vol. 6 was designed by Trent Troop and includes an homage to Dinosaucers. And much more!
CYBERGEEKS Alliance has posted images of Unique Toys' Y-01 Provider to their Facebook page. Based on the triple-changer Octane, Unique Toys seems to be living up to their name in that they seem to have created an Octane toy that looks good in all three modes.
Keep looking and see it for yourself!
