I like the new kits coming out... most of them anyway...

11-Flame-Toys-Kuro-Kara-Kuri-IDW-Megatron.jpg

The new IDW Megatron looks boss, and so do most of the other kits. Except...
22-Furai-Model-G1-Optimus-Prime.jpg

That G1 Prime is just really bland. It looks like it was made of Playdoh, and is just really boring to look at. There is no detail whatsoever. I do not like it. :evil:

Found these on TFW2005, where you can find more pictures

Greetings Seibertronians! We bring you reveals from Flame Toys, direct from Wonder Festival Shangai 2019! Also thanks to fellow Seibertron user and News Staff member, Nathaniel Prime for sharing the news with the community!


Flame Toys have been busy tweeting out photos of their displays for the event and the cases are full of all their officially licensed model kits and statues released so far!

Image

Image

The new kits that were revealed include Kuro Kara Kari Megatron! and Furai G1 Optimus Prime! Looking like he stepped out of the cartoon! You can clearly see G1 Prime in the above image with Devesator. Flame Toys also took to twitter to share a new stock image of this new kit.

Image

Image

We also get a good look at their forthcoming Devesator model kit and an even better look at their recently announced Kuro Kara Kuri Optimus Prime, and at the large axe which is only available to customers who preorder!

These are all really cool, though personally I'm only interested in the IDW stuff. They are so far the only official way to get those designs in plastic. The Drift model is cool, but is made redundant by the Generations figure. I do really hope to see more IDW original designs in the future.

Soooo...

Codpiece Prime?

Seriously, every single one of their models has Massively Massive Crotch Syndrome. It's vaguely disturbing. I'd love to see a psychologist analysis of these products.

Devastator is nearly ready for Pre-order, and I am ready. That is what I want right there!

And that G1 prime is as bland as I thought it would be. The "Attack" mode and "IDW" ones are far superior

Thanks to BB7 Toys at Facebook here are some new images of the officially licensed Transformers 3D Metal Puzzles by Shangai Art Model.

These officially licensed models are made from ultra thin laser-cut sheet metal pieces assembling into a larger metal object 11-18cm long. You know, basically knives.

Using a simple tab-into-slot assembly process these models assemble with no glue, but do require a wealth of patience.

From this staffer's personal experience all you need is a little determination, an electron microscope, a pair of Doctor Octopus assistance arms, a few adhesive medical strips (for yourself) and you too can find the joy of juggling small knives until they somehow assemble into awesome looking metal masterpieces.

There is no current information on their suggested retailer price or their release date, but the release wave will feature the following live-action characters in their vehicle forms:

Ironhide as a GMC Topkick 4500 truck from Transformers 2007.
Sentinel Prime as a Rosenhauer Panther Firetruck from Dark Of The Moon.
Bumblebee in his Chevrolet Camaro Concept from 2017's The Last Knight.
Hound as a Mercedes Unimog tactical vehicle also from The Last Knight.
Hot Rod in his Lamborghini Centenario body from The Last Knight.
And Optimus Prime as a Peterbilt 379 Truck from Transformers 2007.

Check out the images below and share your own tales of woe (or joy) when assembling these mini metal models.

I really wish these ones weren't so pricey. I wanted but could not justify Star Saber, and this is so ridiculously cool, especially since it is a G1, Movie, and Animated Prime fused into one. I really would like him.

These are super cool. Too bad that they don't really sell these in Europe. Though I have preordered all the model kits.

Some toys may have a larger codpieces, but at least they are not trying to poke your eyes off with it like this one. But its not really that terrible.

Haven't got mine yet for some reason. Bumblebee should have been out already, but I'm not in a hurry. I have other scale models and miniatures to finish.

The nice thing about those is, that you can build them straight from the box or paint them by yourself and maybe add some extra detail etc.

Dude DMax the pics you posted is the reason I’m dying to pick some of these up. I don’t know why but it’s when a fan gets one and poses them just as well as the fancy shots, I’m sold. It’s probably those manuals you use as a background I think it just makes them pop :lol:

Greetings Seibertronians! Today we have new galleries to share with you, created by site owner, Seibertron, and feature two of Flame Toys recent releases, Furai Bumblebee and Thundercracker.

Flame Toys hold an official licence from Hasbro/Takara Tomy to be able to produce these highly detailed plastic model kits. They are highly posable but not transformable, and often feature designs straight from the comics.

First up, is Furai Bumblebee, armed with a pistol, his trusty hammer and a helicopter back-pack, enabling him to take the fight to the skies.

Almost all of my shots are taken on my work desk when I'm at the office, so I really hope it's not my work books that make those bots pop!

That contrast gives him a great visual role of wielding that hammer I think, it’s almost like the dwarf on the quest: oh this guy? The little guy? Yeah he’s short and tough and typically brandishing a heavy melee weapon - it works for me. These pieces I can just zone out on sometimes it’s like action figure art.

I saw that Bee kit at EB Games (Canadian Gamestop). It was around 60$CAN. Having spare money I would have gotten him. Especially because he's like a fancy version of Action Master Bee.

OK. I'm literally joining the bloody forums just to say this.

Please.

They're just... absolutely egregious. Coming from a builder of Gunpla, cleaning your nubs is one of the most important steps in making your models look amazing. Big white stress marks and excess pieces of sprue don't help with the look.

I know I'm being blunt but I'm really not trying to be rude. I just wanna have the gallery look amazing and really make the kits shine.

The reason why the model kit bumble looks so different is, that he is actually kind of different line. Some of those kits represent highly stylized versions of the bot in question. Others are more like official IDW versions of the character. Like there are 2 different Prime kits available.

Aha!
I wholeheartedly understand that such a thing would "trigger" any semi-pro model builders.

If I ever build a model, I'll be sure to use some sand paper and/or a file to get rid of those admittedly unsightly sprue nubs.
Then I'd waste the whole thing with my horrible painting skills. #-o

Even slicing them off with a hobby knife and running your nail over them to remove the stress mark is sufficient to me, but a sanding and polishing job is definitely the pro way to do it!

I think the difference being spoken about was between Bumblebee and Attack Mode Prime, as they are part of the same "subline" of the stylized versions.

I like the 2-part line too. Giving us IDW Prime, Megatron, and Drift is really awesome. And then we also get these highly stylized ones like Prime, Bee, the Seekers, Devastator, Hound, and Windblade soon.

And this is just me, but more Transformers need handheld melee weapons, especially Hammers and Axes

I completely agree with the last comment, it's one of the reasons I love the deluxe animated battle begins Optimus Prime, I prefer the axe on him then his bigger voyager mold :lol:

Now there's some designs I think will suit Flame Toys stylings :?

From the list of exclusives provided by the San Diego Comic Con we've learned that the Flame Toys IDW Prime will be released in the ever iconic always reliable variant of Nemesis Prime! Reliable, you know, as about 98.2% of all Optimus Prime releases get a Nemesis variant. It brings you comfort, like an old friend who is in fact an enemy who's out to destroy you, just like he's always been.

Now per the website the item will be available at the Bluefin booth #301 so get a map, make a plan, then make several alternate routes, then a few more, then just one more, then get over there as soon as you can to pick up the Shadow Daddio before he's gone.

I still find it a little odd that he can have the shattered glass autobot symbols

And this is just me, but more Transformers need handheld melee weapons, especially Hammers and Axes


Wait they're doing a stylized Windblade? Might have to drop for that. Also I agree with you 100%. I'd love to see Megatron get a mace or flail more often especially, and of all the things movie Bumblebee could contribute to Bumblebee overall, the war hammer feels like a good fit.

Yeah they teased some design artwork of her a few months ago. No prototype reveal yet, but I imagine it will be soon.

Devastator has had colored images, and we were told to expect pre-orders here soon. and Hound has a prototype, so i imagine we might see him in the coming months as well. Skywarp has also been confirmed to be coming.

I love how robotkingdom slaps their name on all photos as if they’re only sent to them. They’re advertisement photos sent to most retailer and sites.

Man I looked high and low for other retailers with non-labeled pics but they were the only ones I could find. Just out of curiosity if you see them pop up elsewhere can you let me know? That was driving me bonkers earlier.

Welcome aboard Seibertron.com! Thanks for joining our forums.

PLEASE clean your frickin' nub marks.
They're just... absolutely egregious. Coming from a builder of Gunpla, cleaning your nubs is one of the most important steps in making your models look amazing. Big white stress marks and excess pieces of sprue don't help with the look.

I know I'm being blunt but I'm really not trying to be rude. I just wanna have the gallery look amazing and really make the kits shine.


Thank you for your suggestions. Had I actually put the kits together myself, I probably would have done that. However, the kits were assembled sets that Bluefin Distribution sent to me for review purposes (which I'm assuming Flame Toys assembled themselves and then sent the sets to Bluefin Distribution. If they didn't send me assembled samples, I probably would never have done the galleries because of how long it takes to build sets like this ... heck, I never even got around to doing galleries of the recent Kabaya Transformers because of how long it took to build Deszaras, and those are pretty simple compared to the Flame Toys kits).

The only "customizations" I did to these figures was super glue parts on so that they would quit falling off (such as the horns on Bumblebee, Bumblebee's yellow chest, the vents on the side of Thundercracker's head, and the back pieces to which the wings attach on Thundercracker. I will try to keep my eyes out for small flaws like that on the assembled sets they send me in the future.

One would assume that a company that send assembled copies for review purpose would have taken some extra care in building the things.

On the other hand though, most buyers will be complete casuals and would never think about painting or cleaning the kits of nubs. So in a way, the pictures were "honest". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
