While Hasbro is lighting up the East Coast this weekend with the NYCC 2011, the West Coast isn't doing too bad either. Sunday, October 16th is the day for the Victoria Toy Fair 2011, hosted by Cherry Bomb Toys. Numerous third parties have made their way to Vancouver Island, Canada to show off their latest products! The show starts tomorrow, but we were able to get some sneak peeks in while the parties were setting up their displays. This the world's first look of G1Uppers' Animated Menasor Head prototype. Details and images below!

The figure is still a long ways from being completed, with an ETA for Q4 2012. The combiner will have a 'samurai' feel to it, will work much like an exosuit, and have alot of articulation. Ultimately, the majority of the combiner parts will be (in) Motormaster's trailer. The head will work in the same way as the Animated Headmaster. This is the only product displayed by G1Uppers.

Liking the head more and more, the spikes help. Take your time, get it right, just do not let this set fall to the wayside! I sprang for the Botcon boxset (I was unable to attend this year) in the hopes someone would tackle this project. Come on G1Uppers, your first product sets the tone, get it right!

If you wait till this thing is actually released, you probably won't have the opportunity to buy Hercules other than off the inflated secondary market anyhow...

Agreed, and seeing as how Herc's gonna cost ya ATLEAST $600 if you get them as they come out, it could easily reach $1000.00 for a complete set. Herc should be done by the time this is released, so you can get them both! :D
