Dream Factory Blast Cannon Accessory Set Redecos including Gold Solus Version

Dream Factory have teased some new versions of their Transformers Prime Bulkhead Blast Cannon accessory set on their Weibo account. The different versions shown variously add more or less silver into the mix compared to the original - although a fourth deco is also shown, and that one is the most interesting. Depicted in gold rather than green, it closely resembles the "Forge of Solus Prime" as shown in the Transformers Prime cartoon.

None are confirmed for a release as yet - our understanding is that Dream Factory are considering all four, but have yet to decide which if any to move forward with.

Has there been more than one version released?

Currently, no. They are currently asking people on Weibo to vote which one they would like to come out next. That's why they have the A,B,C, and D options there. Hope that helps.

Crap. I don't have a Weibo account and not interested in skillsofting a new language just for that purpose alone. I hope they choose D
primetime77
options a,b,c, are all okay because they'll match the takara one finally! i think i lik eb the best otu fo those though. the gold looks like a wannabe forge of solus prime (somebody really should make a good one of those though).

You too? Shoot - I'll have to get one for the Samurai bots now!
Transmetal
Just give me one that matches my Takara Bulkhead and I'm sold.
Requiem Prime
I'm for any of the greens. It'd be awesome if they did the gold too. Would that set have all the bits or just enough for the hammer?

Comes with the territory of being the biggest GGG fan in MN. Elaborate on the samurai bots though.

I have a set of this and a metallic green edition of the other set that goes with it that were sent along for display at the Third Party, so if you'd like to see these in person and will be at BotCon....
JetBrawn
Wow, here's a nice way for a 3PC to do it!

Give 4 options, have a vote and elicit feedback.

Just imagine if TFC had done that with Uranos color schemes...

Higher # of sales, more happy fans, and happier fans.



A,B,and C all look good.

Sidecutter, can you post some pictures. Some of us won't be able to go to Botcon. Thanks.

The gold version is also very very tempting as Voyager BH Ultra Magnus needs a Forge of Solus hammer properly sized for him and this seems to be the only way to get one outside of getting 30th Annie Weaponizer UM. These DreamFactory guys are smart to offer more redeco's for the hardcore collectors. XD

I really wish they would have released set C first. Makes the one I have look like shit without the silver highlights.

There is also a photo of the Takara edition, matching the Arms Micron toy, I'd guess?

GunplaGamer
i want the Solus version! i am already gettitng the takara as well =D
FatedLazarus
I really wish the standard version had that "electric blue" paint on the inside of the cannon. I was so disappointed that they canned the LEDs but that paint job makes up for it.

Here's the Takara version...

The gold one would be a great replacement for either of the Forges that come with Ultra Magnus. I would totally buy one.

It's meant for the Takara First Edition.

That looks blingin'. The interior of the hammer proper could use some more Allspark Blue though. Thanks for sharing, Sidecutter!
Sidecutter
I will say that the paint on them can rub a little if you're not careful, but such is paint in general. It's not super noticeable, and you really can't even tell in the pics and I was fairly rough with them.
Maverick Hunter Christian
Definitely in for the Takara and Gold versions. My Bulkhead desperately needs guns, and Magnus needs a hammer. Glad they're moving forward with additional colours!
Compewtrawn
the limeted edition? gimme that one

New render from Dream Factory:

RDprime
Whoa! Is the solis prime one a completely different mold from the original?
Scaleface
It seems to be a new mold, with just a hammer, no Bulkhead weapons mode.

I can see folks buying this newer one for sure... I mean it looks more like the Forge than before... (as opposed to being a dual purpose item) And if they paint it better than the Premium Ultra Magnus one... which honestly for a "premium" is lacking paint... then yea...

Nice, this hammer is for ultra magnus to create.

Option D as I have always wanted a proper Forge of Solus Prime.
