Flame Toys' third Furai Model is coming this month and we're getting our first look at his box thanks to the folks at Planet Iacon. The highly anticipated IDW Optimus Prime kit will be here soon and as with the rest of the line the box is adorned with some truly gorgeous art! And of course the kit itself is going to be great, featuring a ton of articulation, rifle, and a choice of six hands. Still no pointing finger yet, though.

The latest galleries to debut on Seibertron.com are the Furai Model Kits Starscream and Optimus Prime from Flame Toys. These officially licensed "figures" are a little different than most Transformers products since they are actually model kits which must be assembled and, depending on your preference, can also be painted prior to assembly if you prefer that look. Optimus Prime was released earlier last year and Starscream was released about a month ago, which can be purchased at various retailers online. Both of these highly articulated and poseable non-transforming figures were samples given to us by Bluefin, who is the North American distributor of Flame Toys products. Check out the full galleries of Furai Model Kits Starscream and Optimus Prime by clicking on the images below.

They look cool, and I really like building Gunpla so this is awesome. I'd probably on get Screamer though, so I can leave the Optimus Prime in my budget for SS38 :x

I can forgive them because they are model kits that are heavily stylized. There are tons of Transforming pieces of Transformers merchandise, I'm good with some good non-transforming versions. They add some variety

I was hoping Hound would be next, but my favorite seeker is coming, so I don't mind that it's him!

Wasn't sure if I should post this here, but Emgo uploaded a review of the new Starscream kit yesterday. I didn't watch the video myself but I think y'all should see whether or not this kit is for you ;)

And to finally wrap up our coverage from Toy Fair 2019, we bring you our final gallery of the event: the Flame Toys figures! Toy fair had some of the currently available Flame Toys model kit figures out on display, such as the Attack Mode Optimus Prime, Starscream, IDW Optimus Prime, and Attack Mode Nemesis Prime, along with some of their upcoming figures like Thundercracker, Bumblebee, and IDW Megatron. Also on display were their larger action figure based Transformers, including the soon to be released Star Saber, IDW Optimus Prime, IDW Bomber Megatron, and the prototype for Victory Saber once more, though we are still anxiously awaiting colored shots of the new Victory Saber.

You can check out the full gallery by following this link, or you can click on any of the photos below to take you to the gallery itself. Let us know what you think!

For a brief moment I thought the unpainted Megatron figure was Vector Prime. I'm sad now.

I'm excited cause Bee is gonna be out here at the end of the month, and I'll have him and IDW Prime coming home in April then hopefully.

with Thundercracker set for summer, I wonder who will be next? IDW Megatron, Hound, Devastator, and Skywarp all seemed to be around the same in terms of readiness for retail in the past few months, so I wonder when they are set to hit. I am ready for all 4 of those guys.

Also looking forward to seeing when we'll get the reveals of others in the concept stage like Windblade and G1 Prime

After several months of teasing and images, we finally have some new pre-orders up for the latest Flame Toys Model Kit - IDW Autobot Megatron!

This new model kit is the 7th model kit to be available for order, following their Attack Mode Optimus Prime, Starscream, Attack Mode Nemesis Prime, IDW Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Thundercracker. Megatron is based off of his appearance in the IDW More Than Meets The Eye and Lost Light comic book series after he became an Autobot during their Dark Cybertron crossover, an appearance that was designed by Alex Milne. The model kit will stand about 6 inches tall, and will be highly posable, though non-transformable, as is the norm with these kits.

You can find Pre-orders below from various site sponsors, with the price falling in around $49.99. Let us know if you are placing your pre-order below!

Wait, six inches? Isn't that roughly Deluxe size?

I think so, but 6 inches is the normal size for figures like Marvel Legends and such, and apparently model-building companies have started to join the 6-inch club
