Thanks to our friends over at Flame Toys on Twitter, we have several new pieces of information for you regarding their Furai model kit lines.

Up first, we have box art for 2 of the upcoming/currently being released kits. The Skywarp kit is the 3rd use of this Seeker kit, following his usual mates Starscream and Thundercracker. He appears here in his signature dark purple and black, and his box art features a pretty nice piece of art of Skywarp blasting away. He is currently making his way out to stores. We also have the box art for the upcoming Drift kit, which is based on his initial IDW 2005 body style, ready to take the fight to the Decepticons on the blasted city streets.

After that, we also have new images of the upcoming IDW Optimus Prime kit that comes fully assembled and painted. The new images show us the box, some poses, and also the stand that he will come with to help pose it up and fight the Decepticons!

Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Thanks to a heads up from the Flame Toys Twitter, we have word that the Kuro Kara Kuri Optimus Prime action figure has had its paint job finalized and is nearly ready for shipping!

This Optimus Prime is a large extremely posable action figure that is a stylized version of his G1 body complete with a few movie and animated touches. He includes light up eyes and chest, and features a glowing matrix inside his opening chest. The figure is gorgeously detailed and painted, and includes a plethora of accessories.

He retails for around $450 and is set to ship out any time now, now that the final samples have been received. Check out the final in hand images of the sample below, and let us know if you will be picking this guy up below!

Flame Toys is at it again with their Furai model kits. They have revealed their latest Furai model kit, which happens to be another Optimus Prime, in this case a slightly stylized version of his G1 cartoon self!

This new kit follows in the footsteps of other Furai kits that include highly stylized figures like Attack Mode Optimus Prime and Starscream, and IDW bots like Autobot Megatron and Drift. The kit is a simpler model kit that is great for beginners, and provides a highly posable action figure.

This kit is a take on the G1 cartoon Optimus Prime, featuring some bright colors and some cartoon-esque weapons, such as his energon axe and rifle. The figure is highly posable, as is the norm, and with the special stylization, he appears younger than you might expect an Optimus to look, almost like he is a newly minted Optimus Prime.

The figure is currently preparing to go up for Pre-order, so keep an eye open! Let us know what you think in the comments section below, and stay tuned for more Flame Toys news!

Coming once more from Flame Toys via Twitter user @kurouwww_Hobby, we have some new in hand images of the currently being released Furai Model Kit Devastator!

Devastator is the largest Furai kit that has been released so far, standing tall and bulky and showing off his numerous construction vehicle components. He is highly stylized, similar to the Attack Mode Optimus Prime, Starscream, and Bumblebee molds. Some of his features include Scavenger's bucket being used as a punching addition, Hook's crane being used as a cannon, and a really sweet head sculpt.

He is retailing for around $80, and you can place an order for him from our various site sponsors, listed below.

What's up with Flame Toys and their obsession with DIAPER BOTS?
Seriously, those proportions are horrendous. At least Bumblebee was normal and awesome looking. But now, diapers or big "porn-star" packages (looking at you, Starscream...) everywhere.

I need to at least try to find that Bee for a reasonable price. I consider it to be a MP Action Masters Bee.

I have loved every single kit, and look forward to getting 5 different kits once I move and ship my stack.

Also, G1 Prime looks better than I thought it would!

Maybe in hand. But I can't get over that absurd style. Still planning to get Bee. How is the solidity for posing and such? Are those kits "playable" once assembled?

For comparison I tried cheap High Grade Gundam kits. 2 normal bots and two waifus. The waifus are nice but parts fly over everywhere when posing. As for the bots, they feel like normal action figures.

Right. Aren't these the wrong shades of green and purple? Idk. Could be my screen. Mold looks excellent. Just not so sure about those colours.

And, I'm relieved they didn't just rip off Make Toys Giant Type-61.

Whilst I prefer the "Attack Mode" version of Prime, that more G1 version looks nice as well. The Obari-esque proportions work really well on him.

And goddamnit that Devastator is a work of art. He definitely needs paint though, at least for accent work.

I mean look at thins thing. Transfans on Facebook posted the official images of Flame Toys' latest non transforming figure, Kuro Kara Kuri Optimus Prime. While it heavily bears on the G1 aesthetic, it modernizes it with more detail and gives it an amalgam arsenal of Primes from all other media. For instance, it has the swords from the Bay films, the rocket axe from animated and the battle axe from the WFC game (which is an exclusive to D4 toys). It also has the starsabre and LED lights. Not sure of the price yet but expect anything between $250 and your soul. We have a few images below and you can view all of them by clicking here.

I love that the axe is based on Animated version and the swords on the movie ones.
I thought this was announced before.

Looks awesome. I was interested in buying one. But the price is completely stupid & unreasonable.

That Matrix Master Sword needs to be a regular accessory on Optimus Prime figures. I'll take that over the axe any day, even though the axes here look great.

Looking at that Optimus, I find his proportions somewhat feminine. This make me look forward their take on Arcee.

His crotch is at least double the size of his head.



Elita One has been asking for this one... :HEADHURTS:

Prime is so gorgeous, I think he might be the best of the large figures made. The lights are certainly very effective too.

The weapons are great, so many homages.

also, he is $450, and should be shipping out very soon here
