3rd party Transformers


The last 18 months have seen a rise in the number of unlicensed Transformers, some are outright knockoffs, others are original releases based on official characters and are usually something that for varying reasons will never get an official release.

There are many arguments about the ethics of such products but I think that anything that gives collectors more options can only be a good thing especially as the better 3rd party items are often better quality than Hasbro/Takara products.

Here's a few pics of some of mine,

Nice man! Too bad the prices aren't 'knockoff' prices, if you know what I mean! They price them like they're limited editions. emoticon

That's the one issue I have with them although living in the UK I tend to get boned on prices no matter what so I'm used to [sign in to see URL] wonder I get sore! emoticon

Although the forthcoming Masterpiece is a much better representation of G1 Rodimus I think Protector is still well worth getting as it's a different take on the design that makes it stand out in a display.

Faith Leader is just a bit smaller than MP Grimlock which makes the scale perfect to the G1 cartoon and the various Deluxe & Voyager Autobots look great alongside him, so much so that I resold my Henkei Prime.

Universe Hardhead gets an upgrade courtesy of Headrobots,

The little dude sitting in the front of the APC is an all new version of Duros, the G1 toy's Headmaster which like the guns can also be used with G1 Hardhead although a small adapter ( included in the set ) is required for Duros to fit the G1 neckpost.

The new weapons can be configured in several different ways which adds a nice bit of variety in how it can be displayed and the addition of the Headmaster really lifts it above being a fairly standard repaint of Onslaught.

A word of warning though, the stock head is a !@#$ to remove as there's two tiny screws in it that take forever to [sign in to see URL] it's worth it emoticon

I had Onslaught for a while but I traded with a friend as part payment for a custom he did for me. I keep meaning to get the Henkei version to replace it as it's a great mold.

One other awesome 3rd party item to look out for soon is iGear's Legends Class G1 Bumblebee complete with VW Beetle alt mode,

Compared to most 3rd party releases the price is good too! emoticon
