Posted on 08-30-2014 at 09:00 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed

Perfect Effect Warden Extra Weapons Edition

Posted on 08-23-2014 at 09:16 AM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
1493467_689135304498806_8579767348668951247_o Perfect Effect have revealed a new version / accessory pack for their popular unofficial Fortress Maximus, Warden, may be in the works. They've posted up photos on their Facebook page showing a version of Warden with some extra accessories including a new gun and boots to make Warden a bit taller and more Fortress Maximus proportioned.

At this time, we're not clear on if this is an accessory set, a new version of the figure with the new accessories, or if both options will happen. It's been pointed out that in order to work some of the new leg parts the original figure's knees need to be replaced - so it's possible this is a new full figure release.

Unmade Cassy Sark Concepts - Unofficial Lugnut, Depth Charge, Skyquake, And More

Posted on 08-22-2014 at 12:38 PM by Mechafire under 3rd Party Unlicensed
lugnut03 Here's some bittersweet news for you all - TFW has been keeping an eye on this and wanted to post all available information for all to see.

3rd party freelancer and MMC designer Cassy Sark has been posting a smattering of (glorious) Cybertronian figure concepts up on his Facebook, which were apparently intended to be Ultra class-sized. These are:

Zealot (Lugnut)
Triton (Depth Charge)
Turbulance (Skyquake)

In addition, while we don't have images of what they would have looked like, these are more retools which were evidently going to be made:

IDW Jhiaxus

Alas, these projects were planned, but never came to be, with no company wanting to produce them. However, there are rumors about that these images are being released to gauge interest in them, and potentially be picked up by any willing 3rd party company.

So, would you like to see these be made? Check out the images and sound off after the jump!

ABUIABACGAAg0MvKnwUoybvXogUwoAI4sQI Third party group Bold Forms have shared some new images of prototypes of their unofficial takes on Motormaster and Megatron, aka Lone Wolf and Gladius. From these images we can see the Megatron has a Generation 1 style robot mode with a tank alternate mode - much like the upcoming Hasbro Leader class toy - while the Motormaster seems to be a Masterpiece scaled version of the Generation 1 toy with some extra details included.

Discuss the Lone Wolf / Motormaster images here, and the Gladius / Megatron images here.
