Xovergen TrailerForce TF-01 - New Looks at Ultimate Powermaster Optimus Prime Redux
Jack Q - Tuesday, March 13, 2012
Oh yea, now things are getting interesting. Thanks to the amazing toys designers over at Xovergen, we have some first looks at their upcoming TrailerForce TF-01.
This is an accessory upgrade kit for the Classics Voyager Optimus Prime action figure that makes for an ultimate redux of the much loved, but brickish, Power Master Optimus Prime from the G1 series.
The images show the resin protype that is coming together quite brilliantly with and trailer loaded down with weaponry and a nifty Powermaster figure that hangs on the grill. Check out the image after the jump for more details.

Yes,but I guess some fans want more PMOP styled toys. Personally I would have loved that DOTM ultimate optimus prime toy,had the hips & knees had walking articulated joints. I think the ultra sized optimus toy that comes with the ultimate optimus toy,is the best part about the toy. I'm n... read more
Scruffy the Janitor
isn't that what DOTM ultimate prime basically is?
Depends on price. Id get 1.............just not to sure I want to take a 5th ass kicking for more armor.
PMOP is my most favorite, my most prized (not expensive) transformer. I love that toy, brick and all. When I had the opportunity to finally get the Takara reissue cheap from HLJ, I was in transformers collection heaven. That being said, as much as I like PMOP and think this 3rd party figure is cool... read more
This looks awesome, and since it fits both Classics Prime and PMOP/Ginrai, I'll have to see if I can find the budget for it. Still, I wish Takara would forgo just one Convoy release to make a Ginrai instead. Or Hasbro a PMOP redux. C'mon, I want to give my money rather than the 3rd parties... read more
Man, if that thing fits Classics/Henkei OP AND it's priced around $80 bucks I'll be snatching one up. That thing looks alot better then the brick the original PMOP was.
Ohhhhh G1 Prime. Now it makes sense.
Isn't it about time Hasbro came out with a decent updated Powermaster Optimus Prime?
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!
