TFClub Custom Toys New Images

TFClub (registration required) posted some new images of some of their upcoming custom Transformers items. On show is the TFC-EX05 Primars, the superdeformed Optimus Prime toy, this time with a faceplate. Joining him is an image of the TFC-EX06 Custom Devastator's right arm, plus the now-named Headmaster Optimus Prime and Soundwave figures. These two are to be called "Junkion Blacksmith" 01 and 02, and are modeled on their Generation 1 incarnations, with Headmaster heads based on their classic heads as well as classic style robot and vehicle modes. Only the unpainted heads are seen this time out, so check out our earlier coverage for more information. Also on show are the "Targetroids", the Targetmaster versions of these. They take classic characters and have them turn from robots into guns. Shown so far are Optimus Prime, Megatron, Rodimus and Starscream.

Please remember these are all unofficial custom pieces, and as such are not officially licensed or safety tested by Hasbro or Takara-Tomy.

Gah I want to see even clearer pics of the Head and Target masters! But pretty cool seeing thse pics of them, great find!
nemisispringer
That devs arm looks amazing

I recon the idea is if you have classics or energon devs you can slap him on there for now but were going to get a new contructicon evrey so often from tfclub
theestampede
so many things I want, but prices will probably prevent me from getting any of it.
Prime Evil
Wow, I'm surprised that I'm liking those targetmasters of G1 characters.
Trailbreaker77
Wow that Dev arm is a lot bigger than what I expected it to be.
BScorpinok75
So want for that Protector armor to hurry and be released. Interested in the Constructicon arm. Will there be six Constructicons released? Targetmasters look nice enough but I don't see the purpose of them being Targetmasters. Would have been cool if they'd done all the original Targetmaster Nebulans' instead.

I'm really digging that Devastator arm. But the side view - wow its RIVETED with screws. I hope they can cover some of that up in the end product but otherwise paint me EXCITED for an original Devastator. That would be a phenomenal undertaking and a heavy blow to the wallet.
Lumpy
those Targetroids look pretty sweet... are they available for preorder already? and that Devastator arm looks cool, but i wanna see the whole thing done before i start buying parts... i'd hate to have 1 or 2 pieces, then see it never finished...
Fort Max
What happened to the movie style SD Prime?

It's in two of the photos above, no?

Fantastic find !!! Thanks for these photos

Holy Hell, Devy's arm is ginormous! There goes even the slimmest chance I had of being able to afford it. Because at that size, the whole thing will probably easily pass 600 bucks. Although, I'd LOVE to be wrong.

Is it possible at all that the arm is a 2-up prototype?

What is 2-up? As in size? I hope not, I want this thing to be huge... I will save for it, no matter the cost. Unless its executed poorly of course.

A prototype made at twice the size of the finished piece. Also common are 3 ups, which are three times the size.

No. Scale estimates from previous photos put the toy at a large Deluxe size.

2-ups are impractical for Transformers prototypes, because they don't accurately reflect the engineering constraints. What works at that scale won't necessarily work at half the size.

That Devi arm/Scavenger is awesome...please let these guys be $50 each...
xanthax
That's a big arm. I dig it! Definately going for the fp protector and the kmc repaint.

That's how I understand it. (the whole scaling thing) Take what many (myself not included) believe to be one of the worst deluxes in the Universe 2.0 line for example. Galvatron was designed to be a Voyager, then downsized to a deluxe (at least that's what I've heard). According to many, that didn't work out so well.

Now that, I wouldn't mind at all!

Ugh.. that lonely Devastator arm with nothing to swing from.

The build up for seeing another arm, or even a lonely leg, for a figure has never been so great. I can see it now... a "hot" thread with the title "DEVASTATOR'S CROTCH REVEALED!!"

The 3rd party stuff sure has been keeping up the quality level though. Those targetmaster figures are definitely interesting.

Do we know which bodies those headmasters will fit on?

With an every other month release schedule that's quite doable financially. Heck anywhere between $50 - 100 every other month isn't too bad.

Make 2011 the Year of Devastation.
SoundMaster
Those Seekers look awesome!
Blitz.
kinda want to see more of the devi project as I'm impressed by the idea but I'm kinda sick of seeing the same arm mode
Foster
I could see myself passing on the Botcon toys to make room for that TF Club Devastator.
Thundershot
Wow... that Devastator is gonna be a BEAST...

Yeah I agree. How many times are we gonna see just this arm and nothing else? I realize there's a lot of work involved with something of this nature, but it would be nice to see some sign that the work is going to result in a genuine payoff and not something where everybody will order the first toy, then we never see any sign of anything else.
Todd Hakusho
are those seeker targetmasters?! :O

This is why I think they'll be released one at a time. We've seen the same prototype for months with nothing else hinted. There's no way they have the budget to make all six of them unless they release them one at a time in order to gain revenue from the sales to put into the other ones. Especially things this big...

I'm sure there'll be a big ol' boxed set later, but I'm still counting on individual releases in order to build up the money to make the others.

There was a cad image of not Hook's crane mode posted a while back.

Wake me up when we know who those Headmasters can attach to.
mx-01 archon
Headmaster Optimus Prime and Soundwave, of course.


Wait...

As far as I know, they can attach to any G1 Headmaster body...
Prime himself not only can turn into a head, but also has a truck mode.
Insane Galvatron
Looks like the Megatron's gun mode didn't turn out as great as I would have feared. Mastershooter Mega-Gun and Brown-King don't look to have anything to worry about.
OptimusTron97
Anyone else getting a BoomBox vibe from the Chibi OP?
x BlackMagnus x
The Headmasters I found back in Sept.- http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transf...admasters.html
everything else looks cool though! Can't wait to see more of Devastator. And Targetroids? Really? They look awesome but, that name is ass. See what I did there?
courtdevil
Man I wish I have a showcase like that in my apartment.
G1Prowl
If those things turn out to be decent, it may motivate me to do that Brainstorm custom I've been lusting after.

is those targetmaster heads, the same ones in that ko headmasters set of 10? or are these brand new heads and not repaints?

have you seen headmasters that look like that before? no? then they are new sheesh

46+2
Will any of this be available to non TFC members?
Switchblade
Man, the more I see of Protector the less I want it. It looks okay, but next to MP Rodimus I just can't find any excitement for this one anymore. I'm thinking about canceling my pre-order.
