Here's a video review (not by me) of one of the most amazing third-party TransFormers items I've ever seen: the FansProject "TF-Parallax City Commander" trailer/armor for Transformers Classics Ultra Magnus:

What's particularly impressive about this item is that it is not made by Takara or Hasbro, but instead comes from a group of fans in Hong Kong. The engineering is amazing on this, and it really demonstrates what is possible with modern prototyping and manufacturing tools for small groups.

Mine's on the way. I'm REALLY looking forward to this set; FansProject will also be releasing a "Shadow Commander" set in December for this year's SDCC TransFormers exclusive, Nemesis Prime, which ends up being the dare-I-say SEXIEST TransFormer I've ever set eyes on:

I always did have a thing for 'bots in black. ;D

File this under "why didn't I think of that":

Scott Campbell's MisFormers

"In Scott Campbellā€™s studio in Shinjuku are more than a thousand dismantled TransFormers in various states of disrepair. Starting his sculpture series in 1999, the Australian artist re-arranges parts of perfectly functional TransFormers to extremely dis-functional MisFormers. PingMag visited Scott in his studio where he assembles, plans and tweaks those precious sculptures - to find out why."
