It was back in July when we first saw a prototype for the upcoming Flame Toys Tarn figure, and now we finally have more word about it's release. Coming as a tweet from the official Flame Toys Twitter account, we not only get an additional shot of Tarn, but also confirmation that we will be seeing more in regards to him at the upcoming TOYSOUL 2017 event in Hong Kong this upcoming weekend. If any news is broken from that event, you'll be sure to hear about it here on Seibertron.com!

Take a look at the new image they provided below, and then tell us if you are interested in picking up this non-transforming figure in the future, or if you'll wait to see more. One of the largest critiques of their previous Transformers figure, Drift, was the large price tag. It will be interesting if that changes at all with their new figure, Tarn.

Back in July, we saw sketches of some of products - both shown off in prototype form and not - by non-transforming action figure license-holding makers Flame Toys, who have come back into the news cycle recently with a teaser for their IDW Tarn (late leader of the late Decepticon Justice Division) figure, seen here.

As they announced, they will be attending this weekend's Hong Kong event Toysoul 2017, and it looks like someone took photos during show set up and we found that not only Tarn is ready to be shown off in full colour, but we also get a white prototype of the Star Saber figure, reminding us all that yes, Primus does indeed hate us. Check out the images below via Twitter user DkunDX and Ben Lai of HKTF!

That Drift and Tarn were both really nice, but I didn't feel I needed either of them. But this. THIS!

It's nice to see my favorite character get some love besides the masterpiece, and I don't care HOW MUCH I have to pay, Imma buy this sucker!

Still just looks like a Gundam copy but then I've never liked Star Saber in any form.

Now that you mentioned it, you have a point. Something always bothered me about Star Saber, and I think you just hit the nail on the head.

You may remember that we posted news about Flame Toys prototype Star Saber figure the other day. We just found out that ToysWalker posted some wonderful images of the upcoming Flame Toys Transformers figures that are on display at TOYSOUL 2017. These Transformers are heavily stylized from the IDW continuity and they are entirely non-Transforming figures. The selection ranges from fan favorites, with a lean towards Autobots, such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hound, Drift, and Star Saber. The two Decepticons in the line up are the traitorous Starscream and the Decepticon Justice Division Leader and otherwise fan favorite, Tarn.

Flame Toys has a booth at the current TOYSOUL 2017 event in Hong Kong. What stands out about these incarnations that while some are clearly action figures others are in fact super detailed models! Starscream in this case would be a model kit in fact. The images are mirrored below and also link to Toyswalker's extensive gallery from the TOYSOUL 2017 event.

Prime looks a bit weird with the moob shapes but Starscream looks gorgeous, and they both look Obari as all hell. I love it!

Seems to be some movie influence with the weapons. Bumblebee's got a hammer and Hound is festooned with weaponry, including a combat knife and minigun.
