Justitoys has posted some interesting information on their facebook page regarding the third-party Predacon project mentioned at the TFcon third-party panel. During the panel the image below was shown and announced as an upcoming TFC Toys project, the same company currently producing the Hercules (aka Devastator) figures. Justitoys has now posted the image and state that TFcon got their information wrong, this is actually their project.

The question now becomes scale. Justitoys are well known for their WST figures, but the design and detailing on this figure seem to lend themselves to something larger.

Update: According to their facebook, this is a member of a "large scale" combiner team.

It's awfully early to be making any judgment calls on this one. However, I do know one thing, with all this 3rd party awesomeness, I'm going to need a government bailout! :sad:

Cool, but they still haven't made the THS Dinobots or completed WST Astrotrain yet. I do wish 3rd party companies would show progress for one project at a time, unless they have some sort of concrete schedule like Fansproject.

Hahahaha!!! That's some funny stuff. Concrete.....

This is a very cool proposition, and that sketch looks awesome. So long as they're at least deluxe size, I think I'm on board.

By-the-by, what's Justitoys' quality like?

Well perhaps concrete wasn't the right word... :lol: I mean they actually have a plan and "schedule" for their projects, while most other 3rd parties just show off a ton of ideas and never follow through on a lot of them.

Anyway, their quality is pretty good. I have a couple of the WST dinobots and the Shockwave and they really are like shrunken down versions of the G1s, quality plastic, diecast and everything.

I have two of the WST Dino Robots and they are pretty good. The plastic is a little flimsy--not brittle, more like thin, soft, and pliable--but otherwise no complaints. They also have die-cast parts, just like the original G1 toys, which is one of the reasons I like them. They're a nice mini version of G1 toys. I can't speak for anything larger made by Justitoys, though.

I have their MP Megatron upgrade package and the trailer they made for MP Convoy before Takara released their own. I was very impressed with the Megatron pack, especially the diecast pieces which let you attach the rifle stock. The Convoy trailer doesn't transform, but it's very good plastic and matched the colors on Convoy very well. It also had some interesting features I wouldn't have thought of, such as a stand to attach to the trailer hitch to allow it to stay level on its own and wheel chocks inside to keep your Binaltech/Alternator TFs from rolling back and forth.

I'm not particularly turned on by the outside hinges on the arms and legs. I'm not a big fan of invisible elbows / knees like Exgraver has. It would be nice if they could make the hinge the actual elbow or knee instead of an arm or leg that essentially breaks in half to bend.

I just paid $200 for the takara reissue last year. And im quite happy with that, especially with all the gold paint :lol:

kirbenvost, amtm and morphobots; cheers for the info. It's certainly heightened my anticipation for these.

Hopefully, since this isn't from TFC, it will be in scale with the FP combiners and fit in nicer with the classics line.

It's been so longs since we've heard anything about this project I figured it was dead, but apparently not.

I really don't trust JustiToys. They put out an image, then nothing really seems to happen. Whatever happened to their Dinobots they wanted to do hmmm? Perhaps this will follow the same fate?

Either do all the Predacons or none at all. And that dinobot combiner was stupid.

You're thinking about the TFC Dino-combiner which I agree was stupid. The Dinobots that JustiToy had teased were basically Classics Prime-sized, ultra poseable versions of their G1 toys. I suppose hasbro put the ki-bosh on that?
