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.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of fun stuff going on this week! We announce the winners of our Twitter contest, we are giving away Titans Return Arcee and The Last Knight Valvotron! The voice cast for Power of the Prime was announced! We share our thoughts! Plus we speculate on rumored upcoming Transformers assortments. Also, there's a ton of other news this week including a heavy third party week, with new Combaticons, Aerialbots, and upgrade parts. We talk about the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Ironhide, new photos of Volcanicus and much, much more!
Coming from Weibo, we have some grey prototype images showing MechPlanet's small-scale Optimus Prime-alike. HS02 seems to be called "Mini Lider" and while the photo quality for many of these isn't great, it seems to be a decent representation of the character design. The photos we have show an energon axe and rifle, plus flip up panels on the forearm in a similar manner to the pop-up communicator screen from the Masterpiece. The chest is also conspicuously hinged, which probably means it has a matrix and storage space for it. You can find all these photos mirrored below!
We recently saw an unofficial, non-transforming, high detail action figure representing Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime by Iron Warrior. Iron Warrior has just shown off another upcoming figure of the same type, this one called "Strife 07" and based on Brawl from the 2007 Transformers movie. This figure likewise does not transform, but seems to focus on sculpt detail and articulation more. Unfortunately the provided photos don't represent the scale of the figure well, so it's unclear at this point whether Brawl will be appropriately large. You can check out the mirrored images below.
From Mastermind Creations, Collisus joins the Reformatted line. Standing about 8 inches in robot mode, Collisus features a unique paint application and is able to transform into a battle tank vehicle. This figure comes armed with a pair of cannon blasters that can be deployed in both robot and vehicle mode. The figure slated for release in April of 2019 for about $110 USD.
Zeta Toys still has a bit to offer us today. Direct from their Weibo we have two images of Armageddon, their unofficial Bruticus shown as a color testshot. The individual components are all represented in their respective colors, though the add-ons for the combined form look like they may still be works in progress - at least lacking some finishing paint details if not other color changes. The images themselves say that this is not necessarily a final deco for the assembled whole, but it certainly gets the idea across! Check out both photos mirrored below.
