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.

Overpriced statues that look like Gundams. Sorry not paying for statues. They :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: are called Transformers for a reason...but hey what do I know 3rd party has done better so far than this. But I know wayward fans will praise this mess. Have at it hoss!!

My only real complaint about Starscream is I prefer his null rays on his upper arms, not that far up his shoulder. Otherwise he reminds me of an even more G1 version of the RID design.

Not crazy about Prime, not sure sure what kind of truck he'd turn into with windows like that. I have no idea what's going on with BB. Why the emphasis on showing off his tires and why are his tires bigger than Prime's? :roll:

I like Prime's axe and Bee's hammer. Hound actually looks pretty sweet too.

Still not the foggiest why they would do an IDW Star Saber, who only showed up in 3 issues I think so far. I mean, Milne's design for him was cool, but still

Question is, Arcee when, and what nutty weapons will she be armed with?

Flame Toys has been busy over the past few weeks with new reveals for action figures and model kits alike, and today, we bring to you news of yet another teaser, shown off on their Twitter page. The new teaser is for their Kuro Kara Kuri 04 Optimus Prime action figure, part of the same line that includes Tarn, Star Saber, and Drift. Optimus appears to keep the trend of his predecessors with his super detailed and stylized look. It is also notable that this is the first major Transformers character that Flame toys is tackling outside of the IDW comics designs, seeing as how Tarn is only know to his IDW comics appearances, Star Saber is big in Japan but the statue uses his IDW design, and Drift is a relatively recent character who started in the IDW comics and is based on his appearance in said comics.

It is important to note that this is an action figure, and not the model kit that was previously revealed at Toysoul.

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

Kumastyle, a figure review website, got their hands on the new Flame Toys Transformers 01 Drift (Kuro Kara Kuri), a non transforming premium collectable figure.

They have given us both a video review and pictorial review. You can see all the accessories which include eight pairs of hands additional faces and the coolest sword ever:

[quote]The part that I found the most cool of all of the accessories is the hilt gimmick on Drift’s larger sword where you push the handle in and the hilt expands while changing the color of the orb in the center (shown in the video portion.) [/quote]

Below is the overal score Kumastyle gives the figure, along with a video review followed by several images from their pictorial review which can be seen fully here.

[quote]Overall Score: 9.9/10 – As stated above, I have a very strong bias towards non-transforming homages that focus on look, build, and articulation like this piece does, so take that as you will. However, regardless of your preference on whether or not Transformers toys need to “transform,” there’s no denying that this Drift piece not only delivers but absolutely excels in what it aims to do. Flame Toys not only gave themselves a big, extravagant introduction into the world of Transformers collectibles but gave consumers an amazing piece to close out the year with.[/quote]
