Review: TFC Toys Not-Devastator Hercules Not-Scavenger Exgraver Figure
Blitzwing - Saturday, August 06, 2011


TFC Toys has released their first figure in the 6-figure Hercules series. The first figure is Exgraver, who has an uncanny resemblance to a certain construction team member from 26 years ago. Check him out in this review! You can also view the gallery below. Many thanks to forums member Puma for the images and the review!

Did you see they posted the entire production schedule for the remaining figures. So they are NOT going to be reusing molds, so each one will be unique. This one is going to be EPIC. I'm so excited. They are taking care of their fans especially with that announcement with the part that will be i... read more

ok guys, TFC toys has announced today that they are aware of the issue with Exgravers shovel. "the ratchets at the joint closest to the robot can actually break because its so tight". So they have redesigned the part and will be including it with Heavylabor! So until you get heavylabo... read more

So this figure is pretty damn awesome. I have to say if Hasbro / Takara stamped their logos and name on this figure, I would have trouble knowing it wasn't made by them. I am extremely happy with this figure and am very excited for the next 5. The price tag is the only thing I would say is a n... read more

Got mine today. Even after the review I have seen, he's larger than I expected. This figure has convinced me to start doing video reviews as well.

City Commander is nice. i got lucky and preordered that before it became a hot item. I missed out on the first Crossfire set and ended up paying a lot for it after the fact. I'd imagine this set could fetch a lot in the next few years after the whole set is out. not sure how likely a box set of... read more

Good advice. Should be able to save quite a bit that way. Normally, I'm able to rationalize away my desire to spend so much on toys, even on things I'd really like to have (City Commander, the Japanese version of MP Rodimus Prime, etc) but this is (Not) Devastator, and I suspect I'm... read more

order it from Robot Kingdom with Heavylabor and you won't break that rule. Combined shipping shouldn't be too bad.

I was actually kind of selfishly hoping that the initial reviews of this guy would be really negative so I could safely ignore the set. Now I'm preparing to break my "No Toy Over $100" rule... SIX TIMES.

More Third Party News
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!
Unofficial product of Transformers characters do seem to come in groups, don't they? Currently we are in The Cliffjumper Cycle, as joining a recent batch of Masterpiece-alike Cliffjumper analogues, we now have Grasshopper, from group Mister Moon. Though their product line is called "Mini Master Series", this looks like something in the Legends size range rather than another to fit a Masterpiece shelf. So far we have render images of robot and vehicle (we enhanced the robot image to better see the details) and one shot of a 3D printed prototype of the car mode, which adheres pretty close to the G1 toy. See it all below!
