TFC Toys Deathclaw Unofficial Nautilator Prototype Pics of Team Poseidon Figure
ExVee - Thursday, June 16, 2016
Fresh off their Weibo page is a first look at another upcoming figure from TFC Toys in their Poseidon series. The fifth not-Seacon is Deathclaw, a take on Nautilator seen as a grey prototype piece. The figure looks well realized in both modes, and even features some little extras like an "attack mode" for the robot replacing the hands with big claws. With this, the end of the Poseidon project is actually almost in sight - only one figure to get an "official" debut before it's down to just waiting for them to go up for sale.

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!
