Third Party
TFC Toys Project Uranus Reveal New Image of First Team Figure
Jack Q - Thursday, May 17, 2012

Following on Devastator, it is safe to say that it's only a matter of time before all the great Transformers gestalts will get the 3P make-over. TFC Toys moves ahead to other combiners with a new teaser image just posted for their upcoming homage. The name, Project Uranus, is not very descriptive, but it does not take but a second to see this is their homage to the Generation 1 Superion. The image of the silhouetted figures revealed at Botcon has been updated with a blurry image of what we think is their version of Fireflight.

My favorite KOs are the oversized ones. Like this 2x size Combaticons. (link)

For scale referrence imagine MP Starscream standing on FP Bruticus shoulders... Yup everyone wants that scale of Transformers.... Also, Devastator and other combiners were shown as being the same height as Omega Supreme in comics and animation...

They arent meant to fit in with those Energon Supremes. Theyre meant to fit in with the CHUUD lines. But who knows maybe if your lucky they'll make super supreme+++ Omega and Metroplex. I wouldn't be opposed to that, just the price it would cost

Actually no it doesn't, my shelves are set up by toy line, My Cybertron shelf is perfect and only missing two Transformers Buzzsaw and Swerve. Yet there is nothing wrong with the display with Primus and Metroplex in the back. My Supreme Starscream is on the shelf below them and works where he i... read more

The main problem with this. is the sheer fact is their are no new age 2002 thru 2012 current/future TF city/base bots toys that are above the Supreme toy size scale. to have 3rd party combiners bigger or same scale as supreme sized city/base bots like energon omega supreme & cybertron metroplex... read more

Considering that most of the G1 Combiners were smaller then PM Optimus Prime, the Deluxe scout ration is insufficient. As is the scale used by the Energon combiners also insufficent when most Ultra are taller then they are. A Voyager with 4 deluxe or even better an Ultra with 4 Voyagers would work... read more

The energon 5-in-1 combiners did the 1980's scramble city homage toys the best proper scale. their is nothing wrong with wanting this energon combiners scale repeated. deluxe for the core leaders is a decent size & not small by any means. the limbs bots in G-1 were always small,So basic siz... read more

You asking for proper size? Then you should be asking for bigger versions of the figures instead of the same G1 sinzes that were anything But properly sized. These newer homages and upgrades from both Hasbro, Takara, and the 3RD Party companies are doing what we all want and to ask for 3 inch tall ... read more

Following up on the reveal of Tyrantron, Mastermind Creations posted a design graphic that reveals the toy's second configuration as the gladiatorial mining robot Tyrantronus. The change is achieved with alternate chest, head, and shoulder parts, as well as involving a different arm weapon. The giant drill suggests that the figure will be able to be configured as a vehicle other than the jet mode seen already. If it can become a drill tank, it probably wouldn't be hard to make a battle tank out of either. Keep reading to see the images.
The Facebook page for MMC's Ocular Max offshoot has posted new photos showing the prototype for their Perfection Series Saltus - yet another third party Masterpiece Springer. This one is noted to offer alternate heads for cartoon or toy influence, as well as differing shoulder arrangements to match, all while boasting 40 points of articulation. The Facebook post projects availability in the second quarter of 2017, but of course no pricing is available at this stage. Click through now to see the mirrored photos!
Mastermind Creations shared out some photos of their various displayed goods via their Facebook page today. Their Masterpiece-alike offerings seemed to be a prominent player, including a hand-painted yellow version of their Trailbreaker to represent its Diaclone colors, seemingly to measure interest in it as a potential future release. Many Reformatted figures were on hand, including the Tyrantron IDW-style Megatron we saw first earlier today. There's a nice big gallery, so click through and start having a look!
FansToys certainly has no problem with ambition! Their latest reveal, FT-20, is nothing less than an Omega Supreme designed to interact with Masterpiece Transformers. The figure takes its cues largely from the cartoon, with its overly boxy form as a robot, and simplified alternate mode look. But where this really tries to sell itself is its size, and as you can see in the mirrored gallery, it suitably towers over basically everything. More alarming is the hint that FansToys might have a Devastator on the way at the same size! Keep reading to see everything!
The next stage of the warring third parties seems to be kicking off. Hot on the heels of Hasbro's genuine modern Sixshot, two of the third party companies have debuted their own efforts. DX9 has revealed Hanzo (or Hanzuo, according to at least one DX9 posting), which was on hand at TFCon this weekend. Subsequently, GCreations has shown off the CG design for their stab, which currently seems to not have progressed to the point of a code name. You can find images of both below and compare and contrast for yourself!
