KFC Toys Announce Evil Ironpaw NOT Steeljaw Mini-Cassette Bot MP Class Figure
Jack - Friday, March 01, 2013
Thanks to David Hardland who has posted the details on the Third Party toy makers KFC Toys Evil Ironpaw MP Class Tape Bot Figure. As expected, there would be more Tape bots following their Evil Rhinohorn figure that will work with the Takara Tomy MP-13 Soundwave. There are no images yet of this Bot that pays homage to the Steeljaw character. but David has shared the figure's bio character summary that you can read below. Stay tuned for more images and updates soon.
EVIL IRONPAW PROFILE
Dark Ironpaw (as he likes to be known) is a slob, very few of his team-mates can stand to be around him, and Rhinohorn flat out refuses to even attempt to communicate with him, as he cannot express himself monosylab…monosyllabylica…in words what Ironpaw can understand.
He is the only member of the Evil RoBots whose function reads: Unemployed.
Ironpaw once recorded over vital intercepted enemy communication data, so that his cassette mode could carry an eighth generation pirate copy of “No life ‘till Leather”. The only reason his bodywork isn’t black is because he had no black paint left after painting his room.
His official tech-spec read-out for Skill had a question mark for an answer. Was almost a lucky draw figure, but the bright white box hurt his eyes. He has such little respect for himself, he considered reformatting into an 8-track tape.
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!
