Thanks to Weibo user 漫港湾, we have some in-hand images of a retail production prototype (rather than display copy) for the officially licensed but non transforming Flame Toys figure Tarn - the second in their highly detailed and highly posable figures inspired by the IDW Publishing comics. The leader of the Decepticon Justice Division can be seen below, with his mask in full view, what seems to be electronic for his optics, and some scene re-enactions with Drift - the first figure from their line.

Check it all out, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Thirded. He looks so good but it’s such a shame he doesn’t transform! That picture of his eyes lit up! =P~

Maybe we’ll get him in the War For Cybertron trilogy...?

We're on day two of San Diego Comic Con 2018, and just before we head back into the convetnion hall, we have some images from the Bluefin booth covering the Flame Toys figures - the officialli licensed non-transforming action figures based on IDW Transformers designs - including their model kits, super deformed and stylised, plus the larger, super poseable figures for Tarn, Staar Saber and Optimus Prime.

Among the model kits, you'll spot both Optimus and Nemesis Prime, plus a small Bumblebee in the superdeformed line and a fully equipped grey prototype, and a Starscream taking a nap on the display cases floor. Check out the images below, and stay tuned for more coverage from the event as the weekend goes on!

Model kits, superdeformed, and 1:64 scale - see images for name, I am collapsing on shuttle as it is

You don't know how tempted I was to do a joke like that...

Based on these pics, I'd say the Optimus IDW model kit looks better than the high end figure. That high end figure needs some work. I was excited for it, but less so after these pics. The torso into the waist into the hips looks off - too skinny a waist maybe... :-?

These look nice!

I plan to judge the kits themselves off of the first OP we get in September, but I'm hoping they're good, cause I wouldn't mind that IDW Prime or that Bumblebee. Or even Nemesis and Starscream.

And Star Saber looks pretty frikkin boss

While we're still trying to track down the actual source of these images (though we know they are from the preview events over at ACG HK in Hong Kong), we have a new look in full colour at the Flame Toys non-transforming but officially licensed Transformers Star Saber figure - the third in their super posable line - and a newly revealed fourth grey prototype which can combine with the former: Victory Leo!

Check out the images below and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards! It doesn't look like Leo has a robot mode, but the result - which is totally not GaoGaiGar from Brave - is pretty impressive nonetheless.

:shock:
*puts on yuusha oh tanjou...you just have to*

A few questions:

How much? And how soon can it get to me?

These are amazing, the detail...the sculpting...I don't care they don't transform properly, these are a thing of beauty. And I'm not just saying that as a massive fan of Gaogaigar Final (this totally looks like Genesic GaoGaiGar in combined form)

Um, um, um.......

I am so glad I plan to get a lot less generations stuff next year.... I really want this. I will pre-order both as soon as they are ready.

Seriously, this is the coolest thing I have ever seen in the Transformers world.

Flame Toys is making a lot of news here recently, the most recent of which was the reveal that their IDW Star Saber statue can combine with the newly revealed Victory Leo statue to form a very stylized Victory Saber. (Yes Please)

But something Flame Toys has dipped their toes into as well are the build-able statues, and that is where today's news takes us. Following their first Furai Optimus Prime kit, which is available widely for Pre-Order and due this September, we have news that their second model kit is now going up on live Pre-Orders as well, and that second kit is Starscream!

Their new build-able kit of Starscream follows in the paths of their previous Optimus Prime, bringing a decidely Japanese design to the party for the old Seeker. The Pre-Orders currently have him up for $40, the same general price found for Prime, and due out in October.

Check out the description for Flame Toys themselves below, along with the new images, and let us know if you intend on taking the dive and trying out some of these model kits and statues!

Honestly, unless Optimus really sucks, I intend to go all in on these guys.

So right now, I have Prime on pre-order. I plan to pre-order Starscream once TFsource gets his link up. And with the Nemesis Prime revealed at SDCC, I'll get him too. And Bee and Hound will both come once they are fully colored and ready for pre-orders, so right there are 5 model kits, wow.

Also, TFsource needs to get the Star Saber pre-orders up, and I will need to wait with the eyes of a hawk for Victory Leo.

So 5 kits and 2 statues. But so much awesomeness...... :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay:

GaoGaigar inspired? Figures as the original Starsaber was designed by Kunio Okawara aka the guy who designed Gundam for Poppy, Scorponok and a lots of Brave stuff. :x

Awesome! I'm on that. I've been waiting for Flame to make a character that I'm really into to pick up one of these amazing figures. Star Saber will be it! And to think that they are making Leo to go with him...amazing! :D :BOWDOWN:
