Maketoys has updated their website with full color product photos of the upcoming Divine Shooter, the Godbomber component for their unofficial Powermaster Optimus, Thunder Manus. The photos show Diving Shooter in its individual robot and vehicle forms, as well as in its full combined state with Thunder Manus. You also get to see the two figures posed together, and forming the excessively long double-trailer vehicle form for the complete range of what the two can do together. No release information is given on the page, but it looks like it shouldn't be much longer now. Click through to see the photos!

Thanks to Sun of The Empire on Facebook, we've got a great, extensive gallery of a new product from Magic Square, or MS-Toys. Fire Extinguisher is a Legends-scale (more or less) G1 Inferno, though from some of what it's shown able to do in these photos, one wouldn't be blamed for thinking it was actually a larger figure. But to prove the point, besides a range of robot and vehicle shots, there's lots of side by sides with other unofficial product in the same scale range, and even an appearance by Masterpiece Artfire. Definitely give this one a look - click through to see the gallery!
One of the faster-growing corners of third party development is in animation-accurate Legends-scale figures. Today, Magic Square Toys
has posted some images to Weibo of their unofficial Ultra Magnus! The figure's pretty nice for only being a beer mug tall, and the likeness to the G1 cartoon is pretty solid. Keep reading to see!
We've talked about it on Radio Free Cybertron
more than once, but it's still fascinating to see: the economic realities that hamper Hasbro hit unofficial third-party manufacturers at least
as hard, if not harder. And so we see a lot of the same characters (Optimus Prime, Megatron, etc.), especially ones that people are sure will sell and have recolor potential. Case in point: MAAS Toys is taking a swing at Cybertronian Mode "Tetrajet" Starscream from the very first episode of The Transformers
in the form of MS-01 Renegade! Keep reading to see the prototype photos.
DX9 has posted on Facebook showing a full color sample of their upcoming D13 Montana, a Masterpiece-style figure based on Breakdown. Montana is the first in the lineup for DX9's unofficial Stunticon team, and based on product numbers will be followed by not-Motormaster before any of the other limbs hit. The new photos show lots of the robot mode in a good overview, plus some poseability and action scenarios, plus of course a quick look at the vehicle form. You can check out all of the pictures mirrored in the gallery below!
Via a new listing on sponsor BigBadToyStore
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. Click through to see the stock photos of the new set!
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. Click through to see it now!
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!
Shared on Weibo, we have new photos from TF Dream factory showing the car mode for their unofficial Roadbuster from Dark of The Moon
. The sample is shown only in its vehicle mode, designed to reflect the Wrecker in combat form with weapons, boosters, and armor all deployed, matching the other two unlicensed movie Wreckers TF Dream Factory is producing. You can click through to find the quick gallery just below.
Maketoys released Meteor last year, producing a new, unlicensed Masterpiece style Starscream for their Re:Master series, offering an alternative in styling and engineering to the long-worn official Masterpiece seeker body. In a move only surprising in how long it took to get there, we now have full color images for two more Re:Master seekers - Lightning, representing Thundercracker, and Skycrow as Skywarp. As you might expect, they are redecos of Meteor, so if you liked what that figure was about, these should be right up your alley. Check out the images below!
Newcomer M-Deck is making a strong first appearance in the unofficial Transformers-derived merchandise scene with Ion Blaster Commander, a human-scale replica of Optimus Prime's iconic rifle. Coming in at 39 inches long (or about 1 meter), M-Deck presents this rifle replica as being approximately 1/10 scale. The final product is planned to have numerous lighting elements and sounds, and the images of the current prototype look promising. You can find those photos plus more info below!
