It was a while ago that we saw a CG render teaser for a redeco of one of Fans Hobby's unofficial MP-style Monsterbots done up to resemble Beast Wars Megatron. That plan has come to fruition finally with the announcement of MB-03A The Red Dragon, retooled and featuring accessories all drawing inspiration straight from the Botcon 2016 TM3 Megatron exclusive. The Red Dragon is going to be an exclusive at the Shanghai 9th SGC, limited to 300 units which is bound to make this an extra challenge to obtain. We have several photos from Fans Hobby's Twitter and from Aludardlee, keep reading to see them!
One more quick review from diecast on RFC Reviews tonight! FansToys recently brought out a replacement head option for their unofficial Masterpiece-style Grimlock, Grinder. This new head is modeled more closely after the look of the dinosaur mode in the G1 cartoon, giving an easy modification option for owners more inclined to that appearance. How easy? Well, diecast manages it in the space of about six minutes, and still has time for several off-color jokes in the process! Wow! Check out the video in the post below.
We have some new full color photos for an upcoming Dr Wu accessory kit. DW-M08 Judgement is a new set of sword and shield for Premier Edition Voyager Class Optimus. The new parts are made larger and more detailed, and in the case of the shield has moving parts. Both pieces are more fully decorated as well. The Weibo post showing these off doesn't give any relevant release details, but based on previous Dr Wu parts sets, this can be expected to be fairly reasonable for what it offers. Check out the full lineup of images, mirrored below.

PC-16 Jinrai Prime can be combined with all three versions of the Titans Return
Leader Powermaster Optimus Prime/Legends Series LG35 Super Ginrai/Siege on Cybertron Leader Magnus Prime without the Powermaster and new head added by the Perfect Effect PC-15 set! It's not perfect, and requires some partsforming as Max demonstrates, but at least you can do it. Keep reading to see!
MMC's Masterpiece-alike imprint Ocular Max will be bringing collectors a third option in the space race for the best unofficial Cosmos figure. OMNE Reconnaissance is shown as a full color testshot in two promo images. One features the robot mode plus an abbreviated transformation sequential, while the second focuses on the vehicle mode, which has an optional transparent forward window and a rear window, each showing robot miniatures based on Bumblebee and Blaster inside. No further details are known so far, but it looks like quite the Cosmos fleet developing for your Masterpiece shelf these days!
