BTS Nova Lord Reveals BIG New Project - NOT Overlord Toys are HUGE!
Jack - Friday, January 25, 2013
Images just in via Twitter reveal BTS toys are woring on a new project called Nova Lord that is an ultimate homage to the G1 Overload character. Like its name sake, this thing looks BIG with protoype images show the alternate modes a Jet and Tank that combine into the air craft carrier as well as what look like Giga and Mega type figures. Interestingly enough, the jet looks a lot like the Micromasters Skystalker. No details on a release date or pricing at yet. Check out the images of the BTS Nova Lord below for more details now.

That is a Nightraven mold from the GI Joe: Rise of Cobra.
I have the exact same toy...except they modded it, and it looks very bad-@ss.
Woah.....It looks exactly like a Cobra Night Raven from the last Joe Movie. I was thinking Autobot Broadside when I first saw it since he was an Aircraft carrier and Plane. Where are the pics of the Bot mode? I honestly am afraid to ask the cost of this guy.....but it has intrigued my curiosity.
Very interesting. Whatever the price, it will still be less than G1 Overlord.
The Weibo page for Mech Planet has posted images of a new entry in their Hot Soldiers line of Legends-scaled figures: a version of Hearts of Steel Bumblebee! The hammer-wielding Bumblebee turns into a small steam locomotive which somehow manages to be incredibly cute. Keep reading to see the photos!
If the stock version of Grimlock, and by extension the torso mode of the Dinobot combiner Volcanicus aren't really doing it for you, Perfect Effect is again presenting an after market option to try to address that. PC-23 goes beyond PC-21's replacement hands and feet, giving new combiner body add-ons that will let the combined mode form in a slightly different way, as well as adding a huge sword that breaks down to be individual melee weapons for each Dinobot. And to top it off, it also includes replacement thigh and forearm pieces for Grimlock, making the robot taller - and probably facilitating some of the torso mode alterations. The kit is due in April.

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.
