Perfect Effect Previews Upgrade Kit For Combiner Wars Titan Class Devastator With Prowl Head & New Mixmaster Cab
RAC - Thursday, July 02, 2015
Now that the figure is filtering out to stores this was inevitable, right? Perfect Effect's Japanese Twitter account has posted a set of images of a planned upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator! There's a lot of improvements both small and large in these photos, as well as something many IDW fans have been clamoring for. Keep reading for photos and a description!
The set or sets include a variety of parts many fans should find useful: elbows for Long Haul, improved forearms & hands for 3 other Constructions, more G1 cab for Mixmaster and a better scoop for Scavenger, new hands for Devastator itself... And then there's the IDW-inspired "Prowlastator" head, which actually has a fairly creepy-looking Prowl head nested beneath it! This is a neat set that addresses many of the concerns people have had about Devastator - especially the US release - and we'll be sure to bring you pricing and availability info as soon as we have it.

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!
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!
