Planet X Genesis New Colors Images of Alternate Vehicle Mode - Do You Like the G1 Colors?
Jack - Thursday, December 20, 2012
Planet X have posted some new color images of the Genesis action figure in his vehicle mode. Get a look at the colored test shot that pays homage with War for Cybertron Omega supreme with a stange twist of using G1 colors. While this seems like a logical option, fans seem to be kind of upset with the strange mix and are asking Plant X to do one in game colors. What do you think? Vote in the poll and let us know. Planet X will be shipping prototypes to some shops for their display. More reviews should be available soon!

The Bot mode looks pretty good and his size is nice, but this alt mode just doesn't seem to look like anything coherent. Like I said before the alt mode seems like an afterthought and I will be fine to wait.
I would like to see some in hand pictures of this before I give it a complete "No".
Yeah, this thing could have been a win, just so many unnecessary features whose only purpose it seems is to drive up the cost on this guy. Sorry Px, ordinarily I'd have zero issue jumping on any high-end 3rd party product, but this just doesn't seem very worth it, especially with Platinum Om... read more
Looks like Genesis has nail polish on LOL Planet X sure screwed up here with the paint apps LOL
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!
