Headrobots have dropped by to share with us not one but two updates! First up is their Blood DX, the long-awaited customization kit for Deluxe Revenge of the Fallen Decepticon Bludgeon. The kit converts the vehicle mode from an APC into a full-on tank, with the robot mode sporting the classic Bludgeon samurai look (Headrobots wishes to point out that the maroon color on the helmet is prototype only - in the final version, the helmet will be brown to match the rest of the vehicle mode)
The set is going up for preorder at retailers now - such as at Big Bad Toy Store
. It's due for a release in the third quarter 2012.
Second is a kit which is currently only a proof-of-concept, internal to Headrobots only. It is called "Black King", a Transformers Cybertron Dark Scorponok to Black Zarak upgrade kit, with new claws, scorpion legs, spear, helmet (with Headmaster), feet and cannons - essentially all the important parts to make Dark Scorponok into Black Zarak. Here's the rub - it is internal only right now. It would cost $100-120 to release and would be done in installments like CrazyDevy, if it is released. If you want to buy it, you'll need to show your support by liking Headrobot's Facebook post

A small update for you now - Japanese online site Ami Ami
have updated with a new image of the upcoming Kabaya Transformers Gum "Cybertron Base" series, which are three little sets with small robots and bases for them - with the added bonus that all three bases can combine into a Kabaya version of the biggest Transformer of them all, Fortress Maximus.
This new image shows us that as an added bonus, the Kabaya Fortress Maximus will include his Master Sword - a Japanese-exclusive accessory with the 1987 release of Fortress Maximus which carried over to the later Grand Maximus release and the weapon used by Omega Prime in the finale of Robots in Disguise. The Kabaya version of the Master Sword remains as proportionally huge as the original sword, and comes in the set that includes one of Fort Max's legs and a Kabaya version of Minibot Powerglide.
These are due for a release in July - I can hardly wait!Read Replies (0)
