Early Prototype Of MMC Reformatted Unofficial Tesarus Revealed - The DJD Continues

Tformers - 10 April, 2018 - 17:27
For those worried after the whereabouts of the remaining members of the Decepticon Justice Division, being released in unofficial form from Mastermind Creations, this should be a mostly happy update! A post on Instagram shows an early prototype for Tesarus, one of the two larger members of the group. The image caption notes sending it to the factory for tooling, suggesting this is 3D printed or otherwise a one off, probably as an engineering proof to make sure everything about the eventual produced item works as intended. But unfortunately this means it's probably several months before the finished version could possibly be released. Click through to take a look.

Transformers Movie Studio Series Now Available In Walmart Locations in The US

Tformers - 10 April, 2018 - 17:12
The sale date for Studio Series toys looks to have fallen earlier than we thought - possibly 4/2 rather than 4/20 - and retailers are properly stocking the new assortments now. Latest on that score is Walmart, where I can personally report a sighting in the middle Tennessee area, west of Nashville. On hand were the full assortment of both wave 1 Deluxes and Voyagers. Leaders had not been stocked yet. Take note, though the photos below show the toys stocked in existing spaces, a quick price scan reveals Walmart is following along with the suggested retail prices, so about $20 for Deluxes and $30 for Voyagers - no undercutting like we saw with The Last Knight. Happy hunting, movie collectors!

The Brands Of Transformers, Part 5: Galoob

Tformers - 10 April, 2018 - 08:35
Before they were the force behind the Titanium Series, Galoob already had Transformers connections. Some indirect, such as Micro Machines being the trend that helped inspire Micromasters, and some quite direct, such as their spokesman being one of the most memorable voices from Transformers: The Movie and the third season of the original cartoon. Having only been founded in 1958 Galoob is one of the younger companies on the list, with the peak of their success happening alongside the first generation of Transformers.

X2Toys Reveals Giga Raiden To A World Desperate For Another Unofficial Optimus Prime

Tformers - 8 April, 2018 - 18:40
Wrapping up our third party catchup tonight (at least for now) we have a few photos of color testshots of an upcoming X2Toys product. Giga Raiden is an unlicensed Optimus Prime figure theoretically compatible with Classics And Friends official product, and it seems even that it will be able to accept a Titan Master in place of its own head. A Nemesis colors version is also seen, because of course it is. Unfortunately while everything sounds vaguely okay on paper, the path to execution seems to have not gone entirely well, leaving something to be desired in the actual product - particularly the truck mode. You can see it for yourself in the gallery below.

Tformers - 8 April, 2018 - 18:29
On Weibo, Fans Toys has shared a couple batches of photos for an MP scale unofficial Cyclonus. Titled as FT-29 Quietus ("quietus" being a Latin word relating to death) this was formerly an item designed for the Perfect Fusion series which has now instead been fully handed over as part of the regular Fans Toys lineup. It doesn't appear that anything has been lost in that process, as the newly released photos show a full range of accessories including IDW-inspired alternate parts and a Targetmaster to cover all the bases. You can check out the mirrored images below.

Tformers - 8 April, 2018 - 18:13
WeiJiang is mainly known for producing knockoffs of other companies' products - third party or official - but they have started adding in a little bit of their own design work, such as Ultima, their offering to the field of Masterpiece-ish compatible Omega Supremes. Ultima is on display at WeiJiang's exhibit at Guangzhou International Toys Fair in China, along with the expected knockoff range.

Black Mamba Unofficial Third Party Merchandise Roundup - Oversize KO POTP Dinobots And More

Tformers - 8 April, 2018 - 18:03
Earlier today we showed you images of a prototype not-Motormaster from Black Mamba, but that was just the beginning of what this group had to show off. This weekend is the Guangzhou International Toys Fair in China, and from BB7 Toys newsstand on Facebook we have a lot of pictures of Black Mamba prototypes to share. Among the more interesting are what we think are upscaled bootlegs of Power of The Primes Dinobots, as well as a knockoff of POTP Optimus Prime, which shows added die-cast metal in at least the toes - maybe elsewhere too! There's more than just that, so click through to check it all out.

Black Manba Unofficial Third Party Motormaster - G1-Styled Torso For Combiner Wars Menasor

Tformers - 8 April, 2018 - 08:46
The Motormaster/Optimus Prime mold was one of the first Combiner Wars Voyager molds, and also turned out, sadly, to be the worst torso mold in the line. On top of which, it quite honestly could've looked more like G1 Motormaster, for our tastes. Apparently we weren't alone, because BB7 Toys Newsstand on Facebook has posted images and video of an unofficial Third Party Motormaster, both entitled "BLACK MANBA." We're unsure if this is a company name, a product name, or who knows what else, but it's a decent looking figure. Keep reading to see!

Transformers Movie Studio Series Megatron And Brawl Voyager Wave 2 Stock Photos

Tformers - 7 April, 2018 - 16:40
Amazon has updates on a couple of upcoming products for us today. We've finally got good copies of the stock photography for Studio Series Voyager Wave 2, consisting of Megatron as he appeared in Revenge of The Fallen, and Brawl, who only appeared in the first movie. Notably it's our first look at the vehicle mode photo for Brawl, from which we can deduce that he may have an affinity for guns. And for both toys this is our first chance at these stock photos without Weibo-leaker watermarks attached - not to mention higher overall quality. Click through to take a look!
