Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about TF Knock Offs and 3rd party toys.
Newcomer third-party toy company Maketoy is back in the news today with an update on their upcoming Devastator homage set "Giant". They have released a few new unblurred images of the figures in vehicle mode and the Scavenger figure in robot mode. According to the site the figures will be released in two-packs December through February at a price of 10,500 Yen (approximately $136.00), with a complete set (box set?) priced at 31,500 Yen (approximately $410.00). Interestingly the color is listed as yellow. Possibly to further remove themselves for TFC Toys' Hercules? The images also reveal that forearms and hands will transform into trailers.
The minibot two-pack featuring Bomber and Hover is scheduled to release in mid October, priced at 3,150 yen (approximately $42.00).
They have also posted some additional images of their "Tank" upgrade for Reveal the Shield/United Optimus Prime that were not in the update from earlier this morning. They list the figure at 8,400 Yen (approximately $110.00) with a release date of late November.
Lastly, the group shot with all the known Maketoy projects reveals a mysterious new prototype in the background.

Interesting, and I'm glad for the updates - especially non-blurred versions of the individual Constructicons.
Smart move to do two-packs for these guys, but it's a little more than I would've liked (if you compare to FansProject's Bruticus upgrade sets, they came out at about $100 for the set).
Having the major projects line up 4 months in a row is a little disheartening to my wallet, but I guess that's just a rant I'll have to live with. But the Prime trailer is a must for me, may have to wait for Giant.
