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.

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

Planet X has posted images of City Guardian, a Omega Sentinel-themed version of their Omega Supreme toy, Genesis! The image is captioned that they are "testing it for fun," suggesting that they might be trying to gauge interest in a release of the figure. Keep reading for the images and a link back to their Facebook page so you can let them know what you think!
A poster at 78dm.net has turned up with a huge pile of photos of the new SXS figure Overclocking, based heavily on G1 Blurr. The Masterpiece-ish size figure tries to capture the look of Blurr's original hovercar mode, and improving it for more modern design concepts, and ends up looking pretty nice, even if it's too big to fit in with a Classics collection and may not be at the top of everyone's Masterpiece wishlist. Click through to check out all the photos!
BBTS have just let us know they have posted new images and orders for the PE-DX05 Leonidas Ultimate Lio Convoy homage figure. The Perfect Effect Leonidas figure stands about 9" (23cm) tall in robot mode and contains die-cast parts. This fierce transforming beast changes from a robot warrior into a lion and boasts over 60 points of articulation. The figure will be shipping June 2015 for a price of $149.99 USD.
This afternoon on their Facebook page, DX9 revealed a photos of the Generations G1 Leader Megatron wearing an array of new parts. Their AL-01 kit brings a cap for the barrel of the arm cannon to cover the missile launcher and give it a bigger fusion cannon-style end, new hands, a shoulder gun barrel, extra parts to thicken the legs, and new shoes that are shown to permit a range of ankle movement and adds just over half an inch to the height. No price or release date yet. Click through to see the picture!
Here's my review of these pretty disappointing 3rd party figures by Ark Studio! I incorrectly thought they were MP sized, but these are small, and the quality isnt even up to par with the Combiner Wars Legends figures!
