Dr Wu Judgement Upgraded Weapon Set For The Last Knight Voyager Optimus Prime
ExVee - Sunday, September 17, 2017
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.
Why didn't someone do this before? The EX04 Dinokong from Zeta is a Giant Combiner figure made up from five dinosaur robots in a somewhat darker gray and gold style color theme that really is more than meets the eyes. Included with this combiner set are 5 bladed weapons in red and black to offer another level of accenting. The Zeta pre-order is estimated to arrive July 2018 for a price of $349.99 USD. Read on to see the images and more details.
Generation Toy has a prototype for something actually pretty interesting in the increasingly tried-and-tired unofficial Masterpiece game. GT-11 RedBull, as seen in photos from the Weibo page of Chaos_龙飞, is a take on Sideswipe sized similarly to the Masterpiece Autobot cars, but instead of a Lamborghini, its alternate mode is a robotic bull. This is based at least somewhat on some recently popular art of G1 characters with robotic animal alt modes, and if this is an indication, the design seems to translate to 3D quite well. Check out the mirrored images below.
Mastermind Creations shared a few photos of their display at Cyber City Con, which had samples of some upcoming products. Azalea falls under the Ocular Max branding, and is a Masterpiece-style Arcee, offering its particular take on the familiar and now often-repeated G1 Arcee design. Also seen was Foxwire which will be part of the Reformatted series. This represents The Pet, as seen among the Decepticon Justice Division in select issues of More Than Meets The Eye. No release date or other details are available for these items at this time, but you can check out the display photos below!
