It has been sometime since we have heard from the good doctor. Thanks to images from Weibo user “科长-阿盼达“, we got a look at a new accessory named “Power of Titans” from Dr. Wu. This staff is modeled after one held by Titans Return Alpha Trion in its official Hasbro concept art, which did not make it to the final voyager size figure. Unfortunately, no word on the price or release date of this accessory at this time. For the time being, check out these images after the break.

The paint and colors seems to be on par with the Generations 1 character model here. Check out the images after the break, and let us know your thoughts on this iteration of the space traveler.
Fans Toys overseer dalianjj has dropped by with some exciting info and images as we now have full color images of Fans Toys Phoenix! Phoenix is of course their take on a Masterpiece-style Jetfire who is shaping up to be what fans have been looking for in a Jetfire.

One notable feature is that Phoenix seems to be the first Fans Toys figure to feature full articulated thumbs and swivel joints at the knuckles, allowing his fingers to splay out.

Through their Weibo page, Unique Toys has released new colored images of the next series of figures in their Palm Collection toyline. These currently unnamed figures are legends-sized representation of Generation 1 Headmasters Hardhead and Skullcruncher. Like their previous release YM01 – Tom and Jerry, they are fully transformable and poseable figures, with molded data readouts and headmaster gimmick in robot mode and also working cockpits in alternate mode. Although lacking a poseable head like their predecessors, they appear to still posses unique transformations for their size. The Hardhead homage will have a shoulder cannon and double rifles, while the Skullcruncher homage will come with a pistol and the iconic tail shaped club. According to Unique Toys, these figures are not due until next month. In the mean time, check out their full images after the break.
