MakeToys MTRM-03 Hellfire Emergency Relief Edition - All Proceeds To Benefit Victims Of Fort McMurray Fire
RAC - Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Now you can help fight actual fires with an unofficial Inferno figure: MakeToys has announced that every Hellfire purchased through their web store will have one hundred percent of its purchase price donated to the Red Cross' relief funds for victims of the Fort McMurray fire in Alberta, Canada. The fire has displaced over 80,000 people and destroyed 2400 buildings, most of them homes. Keep reading for more information on MakeToys' contributions to the relief effort and a link for the purchase of Hellfire.
We have been watching the news out of Alberta these days and are saddened to hear of all the people in Fort McMurrary who have lost their homes, lost their jobs and pretty much have lost everything they have ever had. We want to help in any way we can so we are making a very special offer of Hellfire on our Maketoys shop. For every Hellfire sold on our site we will donate the entire $124.99 to the Red Cross Fire Relief fund which to date has provided $50 Million to evacuees. This is a limited edition figure and we will be adding a sticker to the package so you know that you are doing something to help the aid. Thank you for your consideration and all our thoughts go out to those in need.
Currently Fort McMurrary in Alberta Canada is burning due to an out of control wildfire. More than 80,000 people have been evacuated from the city and over 2400 structures in the city have been effected.
We want to help with the Red Cross relief for this disaster with a special offer from MakeToys. We will have a limited number of Hellfire available for sale with a limited edition sticker that says you helped with the Fort McMurrary wild fire red cross relief. All monies collected from this limited edition will be sent to the Red Cross relief fund and used for the displaced families who have lost their homes and to the firefighters who are risking their lives to help others.
Such altruism isn't unheard-of among third-party manufacturers: FansProject previously created Blesser, a variation on their Targetmaster Firebolt interpretation Sidearm, to benefit the relief efforts following the 2011 tsunami in Japan.
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!
