Jack - Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Just in are new looks from thrid party toy designers Fans Toys who have released a prototype image for their NOT Shockwave project. The image shows us this figure is indeed being made to match the Masterpiece series scale show next to the MP-10 Optimus Prime action figure. FanToys are shooting for a release in February 2013 for about $150 USD to be announced from various online retail

I hope that the hose keeps up with time and doesn't have the problem the original Shockwave has.
Very cool. That $150 price point is shocking. This thing will be sold out immediately and then pop up all over the webs with hyper inflated price tags.
Sooooooo Veeeeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy Bought!
What is the deal that 3rd Parties are releasing MP figures faster than HasTakTomy can? This looks nice. I want to see an Alt mode, but what I see is very nice. Looking forward to seeing the final version soon!
I still can't believe he's only $150. that's not very far from the prices most official MPs carried...and even less than Soundwave. Yes I'm definitely buying one!
I like it!
All over this, hope the decide to go grey also, so we can have MP Shackwave, hopefully their quality is good
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!
