Code is kind of a let down, just because it doesn't look like he is a headmaster. plus the paint aps but again it could just be the lighting with the head. Still getting him though

I REALLY dislike the coloring on Chromedomes head, but I'm super happy that he's approximately deluxe scale since that means the Headmaster from my custom should fit him, and when I'm done Chromedome will have a Nebulos mode and Earth mode Transtector

So it is Chromedome, his name is "Code" and he's the size of Defender. (link) (link)

BM may not have killed the Brand, but it killed s good chunk of it, and took years for those chunks to comeback to life, now will Beast Hunters be anything like BM? I doubt it. Cause if you do not want to bother with the Beast Hunters Crap, like how I'm not. I can concentrate on Generations inst... read more

a sub line killing the entire brand. that's funny. If Beast Machines lasted 2 years and didn't do it, i don't think Beast Hunters will...

Sorry but you have to plant your feet in order for someone to step on your toes, since Hasbro seems to have zero interest in bringing out new versions of these characters anytime within the next few years (out of the 40 new Generations figures exactly how many are new additions to the previous CHUG... read more

Can we not turn this topic in to A Thing over the sociopolitical ramifications of third party toys?

Haha. And these are stepping on HASBRO's Toes and they own the IP for them. Not sure why you're more worried about them stepping on another 3rd party's toes. That's just silly.

I imagine that it's less mostly because of the lack of die-cast parts

More Third Party News
The 2017 Hobbyfree Expo took place in China, and several notable third party groups attended to show off their projects. KFC revealed new figures based on Apeface and Snapdragon - Kingorilla and Kingzilla, respectively. Maketoys has a G1 MP-style Starscream. FansHobby was showing off a lot of things as usual, including a trailer for their Arch Enemy/Gunfighter II figures, plus there was a lot of updated shots and samples of previously revealed items from multiple other companies. We've collected Facebook photos from Omega Man and Genmon Photo Vault below, click through to have a look!
It looks like FansHobby's Gunfighter II (G2 Laser Optimus) is getting a fair bit of attention this week. FansHobby have posted a quick gallery of the current testshot, showing the poseability and accessories primarily. They note that at least some of these images are partially Photoshopped to represent the intended final deco, due to the recently highlighted design alterations delaying their ability to have their factory prepare them a deco proof sample right now. But most of the photos seem to clearly depict the plastic-colors testshot with no extra colors added anyway. Gunfighter II is expected to release in June. Keep reading for the mirrored gallery!
The Perfect Effect Origin 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.
Fanshobby has posted some new pictures to their Facebook page, showing the latest full color testshot of Gunfighter II, the Optimus Prime recolor of their Scourge/Black Convoy figure, Arch Enemy. Gunfighter II shows some of the minor revisions now that Fanshobby highlighted recently, such as the modified chest panels. Also new to this round of photography is a showing of the two guns this release will come with: both a classic G1 Optimus rifle, and the double barrel Laser Prime gun, depicted here as a prototype while the mold for it is being worked on. We've mirrored the photos below, click through to have a look!
From our forums, TMan978 has shared a video of an interesting new figure. Wei Jiang, known fairly well for making upscaled, surprisingly high quality knockoffs of both official products and the occasional third party item has recently made an upsized iteration of Generations Arcee, theoretically scaled to Masterpiece figures. There's a few other things altered with the figure too, though probably more on the minor side. Check out the embedded video below to have a look at this offering.
