I think it's the bulk of it makes it look bigger.

Apparently it's 55cm to the top of the head.

Toyworld (makers of Dinobots, a Devastator, and that Throttlebot combiner) are teasing MP-styled Bruticus and Superion.

Okay, so a new(?) company called ACE Toys are doing a Cliffjumper and Hubcap.

They look... not brilliant, for me. But I dare say somebody will buy them. Available already for preorder in the usual places.

With their versions of Grimlock, Galvatron and Weirdwolf maybe about ready to ship (reviewers have had samples), it's time for FansToys to release more prototype photos of stuff we probably won't see for about three years. Specifically Hydra - their version of Sixshot.

There also seems to be information circulating that their Omega Supreme will be released in two parts - pics attached. Quite how that'll work is open to interpretation. Hopefully it just means it'll be shipped across two packages, because otherwise what's the point.

Planet X are apparently releasing their version of WFC Trypticon in the same manner: part A and part B.

For some vague reason I get the impression that it's being done for logistical purposes related to the figures being so large.

Also, lol @ the "Estimated release Q1 2017."

Lockdown

AOE Prime

Dino

Here's a collected thread of recent third party stuffs from some Asian toy fare (I've read both Singapore and Shanghai).

I like the little stuff.

I've seen the video reviews of that Lockdown, and the Transformation looks ingenious - virtually zero kible, with 99% of the car parts hidden. Even his back is clean, with a nicely-sculpted backbone-type thing going on.

I'm no fan of Age of Extinction, but I've got an order in for that Lockdown, simply because it's a great toy, rather than being a character I'm particularly fond of.

[skims thread, sees absolutely no mention of the current 3P companies working on Aerialbots]

Hey guys so it looks like YET ANOTHER third party company are working on a set of Aerialbots. This time it's Fanstoys.

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/11/13/f...uperion-353519

No idea what size these are going to be. I think Zeta Toys' limb bots are about the size of MP-10, so who the **** even knows anymore. TFW's article says "in scale with Omega Supreme" but that's vague as ****.

Anyway, Silverbolt looks as gorgeous as he can for an uncoloured prototype with absolutely no frame of reference.

It really is hard to keep to track of everything nowadays, isn't it?

Some stuff.

An attempt at Transmetal 2 Megatron

Wei Jang pseudo-technobots. Seems to have alt modes in common with the technos, but everything else about it is original. No apparent partsforming for the combined mode; drill and bike make the legs, car and two-pronged spaceship make the torso, and the single-pronged spaceship splits down the middle to make symmetrical arms. Neat! No references for size, price, or release date yet, though.

Also, Fantoys' masterpiece style Arcee.

Not included there is the promo pic of Springer raping Arcee (or "Springer and Arcee having totes consensual sex because all women pull that face when orgasming right?" as some would have it). An odd choice to say the least.

The Aerialbots look fantastic, that one of Air Raid at the top of this page especially. I've always wished they could big up the Aerialbots to give them Seeker level detail and articulation.

However, I'm a bit bothered that none of them seem to be acknowledging Slingshot. I know he was the nonce of the group. but he changed into a Harrier Jump Jet which had a very distinctive look (isn't it a British design?). Has Slingshot gone for good from every iteration, even third party?

Not all, but going from O face (tasteless enough) to rape with the inference seems quite a stretch -- the company probably isn't insane.

Line up fits well together but can't say I'm struck with any of the FT cartoon designs apart from maybe Kup.

Generation Toy is making a defensor.

I'm guessing it's big.

The torso is too skinny, but otherwise that is glorious, yes...
