we've learned today of a new release from Fansproject, surely surprising everyone who thought we'd more or less seen the last of that particular third party. Saurus Ryu-Oh Beastructor is the Monstructor-inspired makeover of the original Saurus Ryu-Oh combiner set which represented Dinoking. The set is on preorder for $360 and is expected in June.

Tonight via Alucardlee on Weibo, we've got a photo showing a fully assembled Ragnaros. If you're blanking on the name, that's understandable, as it is but one unlicensed MP-style Bruticus among many. This particular Not-Bruticus is the work of Unique Toys, bringing a little bit different style to the party with something taking a bit more from the cartoon look - a fact in evidence by the coloring of the chest piece including colors from Not-Blast Off, for instance. Keep reading to see the full size photo.
Finally on the Transform Dream Wave front, we have images of a prototype stage upgrade package for Volcanicus. The Power of The Primes Dinobot combiner is in line to get the usual array of new hands and feet, and torso additions to fill out the combined form's proportions. But also included with this set will be weapons for the individual robots, allowing every Dinobot to be armed with sword, gun, or more likely both. Even in the early state shown it seems like a pretty exciting option, and timely enough to compete with the likes of Perfect Effect or any others throwing their hats in the Fix-The-Dinobots game.

Transform Dream Wave has new images up of samples for their upgrade sets for the Technobots and Aerialbots. Consisting of new combiner hands and feet, plus torso armor pieces, these sets follow a well worn path for this kind of upgrade, with each part having a dubious transformation to some kind of weapon or other bulky add-on for the individual robots. The parts shown are demonstrated using Unite Warriors releases. Colorwise they should be compatible with Combiner Wars, but Computron's chest armor may encounter difficulties due to the sculpt differences between Hasbro and TakaraTomy releases. You can find all the photos below.
Transform Dream Wave has updated their Weibo with images of upcoming products they're working on currently. Among them is what looks to be a retail-ready (or close to it) upgrade set for Leader class Sixshot. The kit includes a new head, swords, and poseable replacement hands so Sixshot can make all of the ninja hand gestures. Based on the photos it's not entirely clear how good they are at holding the swords, however. The parts are shown installed on an LG Sixshot, but will probably be adequately compatible with the coloring of Titans Return Sixshot as well. Click through to take a look!
