GCreations have shared some new images of their upcoming Blade figure, an unofficial Swoop who forms the arm and wings of the groups Dinobot combiner, Shuraking. Blade features a massive wingspan, two blasters and three swords – two normal sized ones, and a massive two-handed sword which is more than likely going to be wielded by the combiner Shuraking. There’s also some images of the Shuraking combination, showing two Blades for arms, giving a clear impression of what the final combined robot might be like.
Third party group Gcreation, known for their unofficial Dinobot combiner Shuraking, has revealed on their Facebook page plans for a Masterpiece sized Optimus Prime and Prowl from their IDW appearances, for now labled GDW01 and GDW02.
We currently only have one image of prototypes that are in low lighting, so details are sparse for the time being. What we do know is this project will be Masterpiece scaled, no price has been determined yet, and this will not delay the progress of Shuraking (a sigh of relief for those finishing that line).
Well, if anyone was ever wondering if a third party might enter the ring to take on HasTak’s Unicron, you now have your answer! Spotted by TFW2005 user Daimchoc on Garatron’s Weibo, we have our first look at the tower of planet munching power that is G.O.D. 02 – Galaxy Demolisher! This guy looks to be the largest single third party figure to date, towering over both Cybetron Primus, and Armada Unicron both. This bad boy features rings and an aesthetic similar to the regretfully unproduced Beast Wars Neo Unicron(MAKE IT HAPPEN HASBRO AND TAKARA!), and LED functions included in the small moon that transforms into a gun, and inside of the figure itself which will hopefully transition to the rings in the full production piece. Now come on in, munch on some planets, open the matrix and tell us what you think!
Update: IT IS THE BW NEO UNICRON REMADE!
Thanks to board sponsor The Chosen Prime’s facebook page we have our first look at the final production of X-Transbots Arkose. Arkose is the part of their Mini Masters line and is their take on a Masterpiece style versions of Generation 1 Beachcomber. Included with this release, which was listed as a pre order bonus, is an extra golden right hand as well as 3 miniature bird figures that pay homage to “The Golden Lagoon” Transformers Generation 1 episode.
The Chosen Prime has received a small amount of these already so with any luck they will be arriving at other retailers here shortly!
It’s also worth mentioning that X-Transbots may have teased their take on a Masterpiece style Cliffjumper and Hubcap on the bottom of Arkose’s box! Use this link to join in on that speculation.

The massive and impressive project by third party group ToyWorld continues with an update today revealing a colored image of a fully combined Constructor. This is our first look at the combined mode featuring the recognizable green and purple color highlights of Devastator.
ToyWorld has been aggressive with their release schedule, so collectors can expect to showcase this third party piece on their shelf in no time. Check out the image after the jump and share your feedback in the discussion thread.
Don’t forget that the first two figures Bulldozer (Bonecrusher) and Unearth (Scavenger) are currently available, while the other four can be pre-ordered from any of our site sponsors.
Staff edit: New in-box, final colored shots of Shovel (Scrapper) and Concrete (Mixmaster) have also surfaced, plus a comparison pic with Masterpiece Soundwave.

X-Transbots have updated their Weibo account with final product images of their Master Mini series figures, Boost and Hatch. This duo are unofficial, Masterpiece style versions of Generation 1 Minibots Windcharger and Tailgate, who both feature alternate parts to allow fans to customize their looks to variously resemble their toy and cartoon / comic incarnations. There is also a look at the box art of the duo, which in a cool touch forms a single image when both boxes are placed side by side.
Check out all the new images mirrored and attached to this story.
Thanks to board members icemanff23 and Cheem The Rup, we have more images of the upcoming MP-scale Stunticons being produced by third party company TransFormMission! Like the last couple sets of photos, these come from the company’s weibo page and feature grey prototypes of the team. However, these pics show off Dead End’s and Dragstrip’s individual robot and alt modes! From the looks of it, they have quite a bit of influence from their IDW incarnations while keeping the detailing a little more simplistic in some parts like their G1 originals. We also get a look at Motormaster’s trailer converting into a giant turret for the other Stunticons to operate on the battlefield when the team isn’t combined.
No pre-orders for these takes on the Stunticons are up yet, but you can check out the gallery of pics after the jump and share your thoughts in the discussion over on the boards!
Following their release of OTS-08 Sunsurge, third party company BadCude has announced the release of OTS-Special 01 Sentinel Blaze. This repaint version of Sunsurge is based on the Countach LP500S figure released in 1982 as party of Takara’s Car Robot toyline, which is credited to be the very first toy in history designed to turn from a vehicle to a robot.
Aside from mostly sharing the same set of accessories like the rifle and hand missiles, Sentinel Blaze’s release will feature chrome intake and spoiler like the ones found on Sunsurge; however, it appears the alternative silver painted rims , intake, and spoiler will not be included with the repaint release.
For those interested, preorders are now open at our sponsors (see below). Check out the images after the break, and let us know what you think of BadCube’s latest entry in the Masterpiece scaled market.
To further confuse the issue, ToyWorld has released in-package images of their third and fourth figures, Allocator (Hook) and Burden (Longhaul).
We’ve seen official full-color pics of their 5th and 6th figures as well as the boxes for those figures, but this is the first time we’ve seen color shots of their 3rd and 4th figures, so who knows in what order these will be released, but who cares?!? All we know is that ToyWorld is showing some serious progress with this project.
With the release of the first two figures just in the last week, and the remaining figures scheduled to be released in February, we should be able form the reportedly 20″ tall, mighty, massive combiner, Constructor sooner than we expect.
