Fans Toys FT-15 Willy not Hound

June 23rd, 2015 No comments

It seems like every 3rd party out there today wants a piece of independent Masterpiece Autobot action. Not long after my last post about a 3rd party Masterpice not Jazz, Fans Toys is now doing their version of Masterpiece not Hound called Willy. Check out pics below.

Pics look nice. Hopefully we will get some color pics soon. As of this writing, I have two figs from Fans Toys (Quakewave and Scoria) and I can certainly attest to the high quality of these two. If this trend continues, FT not Hound should be a solid piece.

Transform and Rollout TR-01 Masterpiece Jazz

June 3rd, 2015 No comments

This news came out of nowhere! A brand new 3rd party calling themselves Transform and Rollout is doing their version of not Jazz. Early pics are looking pretty awesome. This figure is sure shaping up to have enough style and flair to be everyone’s favorite special ops agent.

The figure is supposedly MP size. Some thoughts as I look at these early pics:

  • You can pose not Jazz with the doors out on the back (like the toy) or with no doors (like the G1 TV show), very cool
  • Right hand grappling hook can be attached
  • Speakers attachment is included, shown attached in alt mode, not sure if can be used in robot mode
  • Rifle looks very G1 accurate
  • Missile launcher not shown, wonder if it will be included
  • Overall appearance is very G1 accurate
  • Spoiler says “Master”, a reference to not “Meister”

I’m getting pretty excited over this piece. However this is a new 3rd party (in a world of already saturated 3rd parties) and this is their first entry. Their construction quality is a big mystery at this point. How this fig will turn out, your guess is as good as mine. MSPR is $89.99. All your favorite custom retailers are taking pres for this fig.

Not Jazz… Transform and Roll Out!
