While we wait for more news to come from the New York Toy Fair 2018 floor and presentations, we have a teaser from Flame Toys (distributed by Bluefin in the US) and their upcoming model kits - of which we previously saw Optimus Prime and Starscream - courtesy of Twincast Mainframes regular guest Mr Starscream!

The models, after the Autobot Leader and Decepticon second-in-command, will apparently feature the likes of Hound and Bumblebee, with some interesting accessories for both! Respectively, Hound will have his shoulder cannon and more guns and blades than his live-action Age of Extinction counterpart, while Bumblebee also borrows from Paramount and ILM, and will include a heli rotor, a hammer, and plenty of attitude. Check it out below, and expect more images over the weekend here at Seibertron.com!

Okay, these look freakin' amazing... except Bumblebee. I feel like he'll look better w/ color.

hmm...I'll definitely get Prime if it isn't obscenely priced (I'll probably get two and make a nemesis if it turns out well)

model kits cant say i saw that coming, i am interested though especially in starscream but the real question is whats the price and quality like? Are these going to be as good as the stuff bandai puts out or will they be cheaply made & overpriced like everything else hasbro does?

Liking all of these so far, Hound will probably look better in color and even if his torso isn't as square as I would like it to be, it will look good anyway. Bumblebee looks a bit odd compared to the others with a more G1 look but no complaints from me about that.

We return to the Javits Center in New York City to bring you more images from the showroom floor, as megatronus and Seibertron are roaming the area to cover more licensed products featuring Transformers!

First up is an addition to yesterday's post about Flame Toys' (distributed by Bluefin in the US) upcoming model kits and non-transforming action figures, as shown with their beautifully painted and poseable (and expensive) Drift. The former, priced around $30 USD, currently feature Optimus Prime and Starscream, along with Hound and Bumblebee in the future, while the latter sees grey prototypes of IDW character interpretations of Tarn and Star Saber. Take a look below!

"Drift. The former, priced around $30 USD" $ 30 USD or $ 300?

Exactly, 'the former'. Referring to the first of the two things in the previous sentence, also then explained after the comma: the model kits of Starscream and Optimus Prime.

This was apparently not clear enough, as other have pointed out, so I apologise for the unintentional confusion!

These model kits look pretty nifty! I would not mind picking one of those up. Bee looks very cool to me, especially with him hammer

Flame Toys presents us with some photographs of Tarn via their Twitter page. This figure is a highly detailed, non transforming collectible. It appears that this figure will be poseable and in images below you will notice that a lot of intricate sculpting went into this work of art. Flame Toys figures of this type run about 300$ each. Before the colors had been finished, Tarn's prototype was displayed at ToySoul 2017 in Hong Kong. Fans of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Lost Light comics should be familiar with Tarn as the powerhouse of the DJD. If you have not already read IDW the comics, we highly recommend checking them out.

That does look really nice, but not being able to transform at that price does take half the fun out of it. What we need is a proper IDW Masterpiece line from Hasbro. Or better yet it would be nice if Hasbro stopped being self conscious and let a third party (not a "third party" but a real licensed one) make some Transformers that transform for a change.

That is really nice, when a figure looks that good it doesn't need to transform! (In my opinion at least :-) I understand that others would prefer it to transform.

Holy flying fudgeballs & frozen fiddlesticks, now that's a spicy meatball!

Unfortunately, the absence of Transformation renders this item ineligible for inclusion in my collection, but holy fudgepacked fistula, it sure is pretty!

I got a Tarn figure that looks better and it transforms. :CON:

That looks really, really nice, but...eh. The MMC one looks almost as good for a much lower price, and it transforms. Plus IIRC even the IDW production crew love that figure.

I will say though if I had money to burn I would grab him, transformation or not. The paint on that thing is astounding.
