Not Dinobots CombinerHit the link to view a small gallery that shows off a closer to production design of the not Dinobot combiner that 3rd party TFC Toys is working on. The sucker has a whole lot of grey going on so hoping further tweaks are coming. Over all though it’s a pretty authentic creation of the 5 Dinobots but with the added combiner mode.
Hit the link for two of special covers created for GameInformer's special Transformers: Fall of Cybertron issue that should be hitting newsstands pretty soon.
MakeToys not Devastator Giant and Two Constructicons
Speaking of combiners, Maketoy is also making their own, this one based on Devastator. This is different than the current Hercules toys from TFC Toys is releasing each Constructicon at a time. Based on the images at the link, this one is based on the Generation 2 yellow repaint of Devastator. The first two figures of the line, Bulldozer (not Long Haul) and Excavator (not Scavenger) will be released sometime in December for price of $136. I guess that means each of the six will work out to $68 each which is cheaper than TFC Toys $95 each but no idea how the two scale to each other.
WST not Astrotrain
Hit the link for latest addition to the "World's Smallest Transformer" line. It was started and then abandoned by Takara so JustiToys filled in the gap by creating their own versions. This one is based on the G1 triple-changer Astrotrain. I think the classic purple/black version is in the works also. No idea on release date, think the price is around $20 for the 50 cent piece sized figure.
Transformers: The Ride Prep Gallery
At the link are a few images that show the prep work that is continuing on the nearly completed Transformers: The Ride in Singapore that is opening on December 3rd.

Kre-O The Big Race Commercial
Below is latest commercial for the Kre-O Transformers line using stop motion with a bit of a late 70s thing going for it.
Heavy Labor Video Review
Below is the video review for the second not Constructicon release by TFC Toys that will eventually combine to form Hercules. The $100 figure is pretty solid toy from a not Hasbro company that collector's will probably enjoy.
Transformers: Prime Toys Video Reviews
Hit the links for Peaugh reviews of many of the Transformers: Prime toys that should be coming out in the next month or so. There is some confusion on if they will be available at retail but I assume they will at least pop up on HasbroToyStore.com at some point. Really digging this line and like the potential. So far on my too buy list is Cliffjumper, Megatron and Bulkhead (below) who Peaugh demonstrates is a pretty sweet engineering marvel with excellent use of space when compared to the last time he appeared in toy form with Animated.
