Our own Sol Fury is on the scene at TFNation 2018 snapping some awesome pics of the third party figures on display! Check out the pics and rundown after the jump!
Transformers 3rd Party
Keep up with all the unofficial, unlicensed products that are compatible with Transformers. Includes updates on FansProject, Fans Toys, MakeToys, weapons upgrade kits, armor add-ons, and even scratch-built all original figures.
3P Company MAAS Toys have just uploaded on their Facebook account our first image of the color prototype of their upcoming Tyrant Throne.
This a very interesting project. A G1 cartoon-accurate and detailed throne based on the command chair seen on the Decepticon ship Nemesis. The image shows us the throne with Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron sitting on it while recreating a pose from the G1 cartoon. A very nice accessory indeed, and it should be compatible with other figures of the same scale.
We still have no information on release date or price at the moment, but you can check out the mirrored image after the jump. Don’t forget to let us know your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
DNA Design’s timing could not be better as Predakings have started reaching collectors’ shelves and they have updated their Facebook page with a look at their fully colored upgrade kit for the titan combiner! Featuring much longer and more articulated wings, fully articulated and clawed hands with spiked knuckles, waist fillers, a tail for Razorclaw, and a set of individual weapons that combine to form Predaking’s iconic sword, DNA is looking to breathe new life into the walking Decepticon zoo that is already fairly highly-praised. And for fans on the fence about using stickers or which ones to use, DNA has you covered as important paint apps, such as the gold on the wings, have been taken care of and only a couple things like insignias will need stickering.
The upgrade kit is currently available for pre-order via the sponsors below and is running for about $49.99 USD with a slated October release. Check out the pics after the jump and share your thoughts in the discussion below!

Toyhax dropped by again and gave us an update for their newest label sets. Here is what Delta Star of Toyhax has to share with us:
“We’re back from TFCon, where we offered our set for POTP Rampage, and displayed the entire set for POTP Predaking for the first time! Now, we’re tremendously proud to announce it is finally up for order! Set B contains everything you need for Razorclaw, Divebomb, Tantrum and Headstrong, while Set A is for Rampage;
Some excellent finishing touches for Studio Series Voyager Optimus;
On the third party side, we have a mind-blowing set for X2’s Big Computer!
….and additional optional sets for those who don’t plan on sticking a tablet behind the main screen. Each is sold separately, and printed on metallic static cling stock (no adhesive) and can be removed and replaced as desired!
X2 Big Computer Main Screen 1
X2 Big Computer Main Screen 2
X2 Big Computer Main Screen 3
Wrapping up Fans Hobby take on the Monsterbots, we have a truly spectacular set for Flypro.”
Thanks again to our friends over at Toyhax.com for stopping by and sharing their news update with us! Make sure you check all of these out!
Thanks to their weibo page, Transform Dream Wave have announced two more upcoming upgrade kits for the Power of the Primes combiners Abominus and King Starscream! Abominus is quite involved, giving him new hands and feet, a 3-piece rifle, a new head, a new chest piece, thigh and hip filler pieces, as well as a pre-order bonus that includes an alternate screaming face and alternate spiked chest panels! Starscream’s kit is far less detailed but equally helpful as it includes hands and feet, a 3-piece rifle, and a cloth coronation cape!
Both kits are currently up for pre-order via our sponsors and are slated for release around October. TCW-07 (Starscream) is priced at about $24.99 USD and TCW-08 (Abominus) is priced at $49.99 USD
DNA Design have jus shared the color prototype images of their DK-09 Studio Series Voyager Megatron Upgrade via their Facebook account.
This set sure brings us the extra details that Studio Series Megatron needed. Here’s what you get:
- Movie-accurate and transformable right arm/cannon.
- Interchangeable right “normal” arm.
- Extra parts for the feet and tank mode.
- These extra parts also serve to fill in the gaps on the sides of robot mode.
A very nice set indeed which expected for release in October. An extra battle-damaged head is included only as a first production exclusive gift. You can check out the images after the jump and then sound off on the 2005 Boards!
Thanks to HardReturn on Twitter, we have some new official photos of Mastermind Creations upcoming Reformatted R-35 Magna. Revealed this past weekend at TFcon Toronto, these images give us a nice clear look at the “Lynx” half of their interpretation of Sky Lynx. These images provided show us Lynx mode, his carrier mode and some comparison shots with Mastermind Creations Reformatted Leo Dux (Razorclaw). No images yet of the other half of their Sky Lynx, “Inventa”. But this might give us more detail of how this fairly large toy could be released. Perhaps individual releases for the two parts? Time will tell, but hopefully Commander Modesty here will be available soon!
TFCon may be over for now, but the third party news continues with Transform Dream Wave’s announcement of the first upgrade kit for Unite Warriors Ruination/Baldigus! Many companies have produced or are producing upgrades tailored for Combiner Wars and Unite Warriors Bruticus, but it would seem none have repainted their kits to suit the needs of the mighty Ruination. Transform Dream Wave changes that with a repaint of their Bruticus upgrade kit complete with a new chest shield, head, hands and feet, and parts to help fill in the waist and thighs of the combined mode.
No pre-orders or pricing info is available as of yet, but stay tuned for more updates and be sure to share your thoughts in the discussion below!
