Third Party
TFC Toys Project Uranus Reveal New Image of First Team Figure

By Jack Q on 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.

Stay tuned to Tformers.com for more details as they are made available. Your best resource for all the Transformers news and community every day.

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

X-Transbots has published numerous photos of what is probably a near-final production sample of Andras, their take on a Masterpiece-style Scourge figure. Shown in what looks like production plastic colors and possibly paint deco, the photos highlight a lot of the toy's small details, as well as give comparisons to official Masterpiece figures for a better sense of the robot's size. This set of images also shows off the LED lighting feature in vehicle mode. To check out all the new shots, keep reading.
Today we've got a look at a figure by the group SparkToy, based on Optimus Prime as he appeared in Dreamwave's The War Within series. Marked as being 9 inches tall in robot mode, this figure is up there in similar scale with Leader Class toys. Fans of this design may be pleased to see this figure, as it had previously only been represented in the 6-inch Titanium Series. Price and release info are a ways off yet, as the shown sample is said to be a 3D printed prototype. Click through to have a look!
The Transformers Fourth Party Club's Weibo page has posted images of Machine Boy's version of Astrotrain, whose name has yet to be properly euphemized in English. It's a pretty good looking toy in all three modes with some interesting features: the shuttle mode has a communications satellite; the robot mode's chest fin seems to be able to store in a groove in the torso to better match the animation model; and the train now has a coal car in case a robot space shuttle train with no fuel was too much disbelief to suspend at once. Click through to see him!
After revealing recently via CG design models a full out replacement for Combiner Wars Mixmaster, today Dr Wu has shown photos of a prototype piece. The figure's robot mode will stand somewhat taller than the official Mixmaster, but from the look of these photos doesn't improve on the design meaningfully. Also seen on their Weibo page are renders of arm replacements for Scrapper, and an improved crane arm for Hook. We've got the images mirrored, so click through and check it out.
From that talented folks at OWI who brought you the T3 Transforming Solar Robot, they have done a one-up and created the T4 Transforming Solar Robot. "T4" not only has more transformations, but it also comes equipped with bigger parts, meaning your younger child does not have to be excluded from engaging in some quality robot fun.
