Shadow Fisher kit 1

Coming to us from third party company Shadow Fisher, is an upgrade for an upgrade as they further improve the Fansproject Colossus kit which was initially made to improve the Universe/Revenge of the Fallen Bruticus Maximus and Combaticons.

This new set of upgrades comes with accessories to help beef up your Bruticus such as more G1-accurate chest and crotch plates, knee and ankle extensions for the combined mode, and a new, more cartoony head for Bruticus. The kit also gives Brawl a new tank barrel and turret piece to cover the original, new feet which turn into a sort of cow-catcher for the front of his tank mode, and a little shoulder-mounted missile pod. Of course most of these parts find a place on each figure in both robot mode and vehicle mode, leaving him mess-free!

Are you still interested in this kit despite the age of the first one? This newsie sure is! Be sure to check out the images after the jump, and click the discussion link to share your thoughts!

Play with this too Boneyard Painted 1

Play With This Too have updated their Facebook page with some images of a hand-painted prototype of Boneyard. Boneyard is the group’s version of Pretender Grimlock – taking the Pretender outer shell of the 1980s toy and realizing it as a fully articulated, 6 inch action figure.

These images show the figure with a hand-painted deco, so expect the final deco to possibly look a little different – but hopefully not too much. Check out the second image showing the accessories too, which includes an extra head / helmet which crosses Grimlock’s robot mode head with the helmet of his Pretender shell – with some great little details including some War Within style teeth below the cheeks.

Machine Boy Astrotrain Robot

Via the Transformers Fourth Party Club Weibo, we have a look at the finished product images of the Machine Boy Astrotrain. Their take on Astrotrain – the third one coming to the market this year next to offerings from DX9 and ToyWorld – takes a different approach to the locomotive mode, adding a coal cart which even the character it is based on lacked. In terms of robot mode design, though, it is arguably the closest an unlicensed Astrotrain has come to nailing the look of the original character’s animation model. Check out the new images attached to this post.
