MMC Seraphicus Prominon In Hand Photos And Comments On Unofficial Nova Prime
ExVee - Sunday, February 07, 2016
Maz from TFSquareOne has spent some time photographing Seraphicus Prominon, Mastermind's version of Nova Prime and posting about it to his Twitter. The figure inspired a bit of recoil when it was revealed exactly how expensive getting the full package of figure plus trailer/armor would end up being. With this we can finally start to get a sense of whether it's worth the hefty price tag. We've copied some of Maz's photos and collected his comments on the figure, and you can check it all out below!
Some thoughts on MMC Seraphicus Prominon "Nova Prime"... I didn't realise there was bicep armour, it wasn't included in the instructions...
...I had to mistransform head + neck of inner bot so they were too high up in order to make combined Nova look much better w/out sunken head
Thigh + bicep armour falls off way too easily upon posing, turning lower legs outwards pops off small thigh armour. There are 3 faces btw!
The tiny clear plastic pegs under truck cab where shoulder plugs in are not good, one already broken, affects absolutely nothing though.
The issues don't matter when combined MMC Seraphicus Prominon looks this damn fine
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Tons of Authentics talk this week. What do the "evergreen" toys do for Transformers fans? Plus we discuss the newly discovered Studio Series, and talk about movie toys we'd like to see tackled again. Also on the show we talk about the future of Transformers Legends from Takara Tomy, and two more third party Cliffjumpers on the way. All that plus we answer listener questions this week!
On their Facebook page, Planet X posted a number of photos of grey testshot samples of their trio of unofficial Insecticons, based on their appearances in Fall of Cybertron. As you may recall, previously an official Kickback was released based on this design as part of the 2012/2013 Generations line, but this will be a first shot at a physical representation for the other two. We get to see basic front and back views of each figure and some group shots. Scale, pricing, and planned release timeframe were not revealed in this post. Click through to see the mirrored images!
Alien Attack Toys' latest unofficial transforming robot offering appears to be starting to hit availability in parts of Asia. Through a couple of sources we have some in hand shots of what looks like a final (or if not a very, very close to final sample) of El Cid, based on Optimus Prime more or less as he appears in Age of Extinction, and The Last Knight. In particular we get to see things like the weapons in full color, and some close looks at the unmasked face option. Check out the images just below!
Via the Weibo pages of Alucardlee, and SunOfTheEmpire, we have a number of photos to share of Blitzkrieg, the Onslaught of Zeta Toys' unofficial Combaticon team. The images show a figure that can be switched from a cartoon inspired blank chest panel or a toy-derived, higher detail chest to suit different visual priorities. But mostly we see the 'combat base' made of most of the Bruticus torso elements, as well as how it can interact with Zeta's not-Blast Off as a launch platform. Plus we have some bonus shots showing a fully assembled Armageddon combined form. Click through to see them now!
Unofficial product of Transformers characters do seem to come in groups, don't they? Currently we are in The Cliffjumper Cycle, as joining a recent batch of Masterpiece-alike Cliffjumper analogues, we now have Grasshopper, from group Mister Moon. Though their product line is called "Mini Master Series", this looks like something in the Legends size range rather than another to fit a Masterpiece shelf. So far we have render images of robot and vehicle (we enhanced the robot image to better see the details) and one shot of a 3D printed prototype of the car mode, which adheres pretty close to the G1 toy. See it all below!
