Third Party Transformers

Mixing things up a bit. Let's have one forum for toy discussion. We can have multiple threads, or just one thread, doesn't matter, but let's try having it all in one place for a while and see if that doesn't help discussion. '

And just a reminder... we don't really mod... anything... so thread drift is not a problem. However I left the General forums because some topics require more time/seriousness/devotion... I.E. more than "drift"

All the other toy forums are under archives, so we can bring them back if everyone hates this.

This new Megatron looks pretty awesome.

Maketoys makes really nice stuff in general. A little anime-ish, sure, but still pretty neat.

I assume he's got some kind of goofy hovertank altmode, but the robot mode looks pretty good. And the companion Prime in one shot looks pretty cool, too.

I've occasionally been tempted to pick up some of the Titan Master guys from Hasbro (the heads that don't come with bodies), but I haven't been able to get past them just being little guys that become heads for nothing.

But now I'm in trouble, because these are really neat looking. Exosuit bodies designed for them.

Ooo.

I never should've bought Brawn...

Now I'm going to end up buying expensive 3rd party stuff! I just know it!

Just wait until they make full sized bodies that can use them as heads.

Neat TF-inspired Kickstarter by some third party guys, including the designer who brought us Feral Rex and some other awesome MMC stuff.

Pretty neat looking, but I just can't drop a hundred bucks on a toy anymore. It definitely tickles my Junkion Sense, but it's also pretty tall, so it wouldn't really fit in. I like the little rider figure a lot.

What a world we live in! It's a third party Masterpiece-scaled Optimal Optimus figure.

Not something I had expected to see, but it looks pretty impressive.

Can't say I'm tempted, as I always thought it was a pretty ugly design (plus this one is really expensive), but it seems well done.

Unique Toys may quite possibly be onto the best Bruticus ever.

The first two pieces look very promising. They're apparently Masterpiece-scale, but if you just want a big 'ol Bruticus (and are willing to drop $500 or so to get it), this could well be the way to go.
