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
Though it currently lacks a codename for itself, ToyWorld has unveiled a prototype of the Swoop component of their team of Masterpiece-scale Dinobots. The design takes very much after classic Swoop in having an extremely square beast mode, though it leads to a nice looking robot. Seen here also is the entire ToyWorld dinosaur team combined together, albeit made about half of prototype figures at this stage. Click through and have a look!
Through the Facebook page of The Falcon's Hangar, we have our first look at a new Mastermind Creations recolor. Alas, despite bearing the name Grandus Hexatron, it is not a third party take on everyone's favorite city block/carrier/coffee table from Battlestars. Instead this is a retool of Hexatron as the character Greatshot from Transformers Victory, who was an Autobot retool of the original Sixshot. Price and release info is to be announced, but for now click through and check out the photos!
Pictures of what looks to be a retail-ready production sample of Iron Factory's small-scale Ultra Magnus figure have popped up via a couple of Weibo accounts. One gives a good quick overview of the Magnus-based figure itself, while the other teases what's obviously a Diaclone, Powered Convoy based deco ...along with one more in just red and white that we aren't quite sure what it is, assuming it's anything more than just a random-colors testshot. Click through to have a look and decide for yourself!
Surely about 5 years ago, something like this would have been completely inconceivable? A high quality transformers product created by a new company, completely unaffiliated with the official manufacturers and based entirely on an original character created for an official Transformers comic by a fanfic writer who made it and illustrated by a fan artist who made it.
A couple images have turned up today showing a new third party Constructicon project. The prototype seen so far only in incomplete Devastator configurations is being attributed to DX9 Toys, as part of their War In Pocket line of Legends-scale figures. If these are what they seem, we could have a very interesting project getting underway, although most might think that any existing Devastator is already technically scaled better for Legends Class figures. Personally, I just hope they'll come in an orange variation. Click through and have a look at the prototype photos!
