Posted on 12-13-2014 at 10:14 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
27484454d1418467856-fanstoys-ft-04x-ft-04t-scoria-toy-version-ft04t- Some new images have been released showing FansToys next Iron Dibot release. Revisiting their first Dinobot, the group will be doing a second version of their popular Scoria, who was based on Generation 1 Slag. This version will be based on the original toy, rather than the cartoon animation model, so will feature details such as a black red, red triceratops horns and an all-chrome gun.

There are two versions of the Scoria Toy Version coming in April 2014 - a mass retail one FT-04T, and one which is limited to 1000 pieces, FT-04X.

Our sponsor TFSource currently has both versions up for preorder:

FT-04T Scoria Toy Version

Iron Factory Windblade, Perceptor, Soundwave, Laserbeak and Ravage

Posted on 11-29-2014 at 08:23 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
27481995d1417271473-iron-factory-legends-windblade-iron-giants-maiden-ceb62630jw1ems86d2syrj20ku0duw Yet more third party news from the 6th SGC Fanscon. Evidently in addition to the stuff that has been on display (which we have been reporting on via various Weibo feeds) there was also a slideshow. The slideshow showed off some new releases purporting to be from Iron Factory, makers of the Legends scaled Blaster with Ramhorn and Steeljaw.

First up there is a look at a Legends scaled Fall of Cybertron Soundwave, with his constant companions Laserbeak and Ravage. The cassettes seem to turn into armor or small tanks in their own right. An image of these three on Metroplex also seems to imply the group is making a Perceptor. Check out the discussion thread for those here.

Next up is a Legends class version of Windblade. This one is a great idea for a toy in scale with Hasbro's Titan class Metroplex given Windblade's role as Metroplex's city-speaker. The tiny figure appears to have many of the features of the official Hasbro deluxe class release including her sword and pivoting VTOL thrusters. Discusson thread for her is right here.

Third there is also a miniature version of Perceptor, who seems to be a remold of Iron Factory's Blaster. Discussion thread for him is over here.

A big thanks to Weibo user AlucardLee for sharing many of the pics we have in turn shared with you this day.

DX9 Mirage (Invisible) New Images

Posted on 11-29-2014 at 07:53 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
6f8badc4jw1emryesyb7tj21w02io7wh Via the Weibo accounts of third party groups DX9 and Toyzone, we have a fresh look at DX9's Invisible, a Masterpiece scaled take on Generation 1 Mirage. This toy, whose engineering seems to have more than a little in common with Classics Mirage, is looking pretty sharp - but will fans want to hold out in the hope of an official one from Takara-Tomy?

Also on show in one of these images is a fresh look at the prototypes for DX9's Legends scaled versions of Cyclonus, Scourge and Galvatron.

Check out all the images after the break.

We can see "The Brute" as we're affectionately calling him fully combined, so we also get our first glimpse of the Warbotron Onslaught in color. It's also reported those cannons on the back can pivot forward.

Nonnef / Fakebusker Trivia & Jumbo Scrap

Posted on 11-29-2014 at 06:17 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
27481880d1417212884-nonnef-fakebusker83-trivia-black-blue-pink-20141127_160601-01_wm Nonnef and Fakebusker have announced their next two collaborations.

First up is Trivia, a little 'bot based on the Rewind design from More than Meets the Eye. Trivia is being done in Eject, Rewind and Rosanna colors, and turns into a data slug, which we're told also fits into robots who turn into cassette players.

Next is Jumbo Scrap, a 1.5 inch tall version of the Scraplets from Transformers Prime. Like the characters in the show, they feature a mouth that flips back to reveal their lethal Transformer-devouring maw.

Check them out and see what you think.
