Tonight chuckdawg1999 is back after the Fracture review he shared with us to bring a look at the general retail version of Robots in Disguise Megatronus. This version features a slightly different deco and non-faceplated alternate head setting it apart from the Toys R Us exclusive release. Click through to watch the embedded video and read Chuck's summary.
Our friend chuckdawg1999 has dropped by the forums again to share a new review with us, this time taking a look at Warrior Class Fracture from RID, a figure we only first saw in color for the first time during Hasbro's pre-NYCC media event, previously only being known via a leaked testshot. Keep reading for Chuck's summary and the embedded video!
Vangelus has gotten hands on a near final testshot of Andras, the X-Transbots take on Scourge as a Masterpiece-style figure, and posted a detailed review. Included are instructions for installing the 9 button cell batteries plus tricks to improve the glow of the eyes, a transformation walkthrough, and a look at both modes. Going by the overall positive nature of the video, it could be that Andras is the turning point for X-Transbots' build quality that many have been hoping to see.

Today we take a look at the new Transformers: Masterpiece MP-25 Tracks from Takara.
Forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared with us a new review video looking at Battle Grimlock, the Fall of Cybertron Grimlock retool released recently in Transformers Adventure. Click through for the embedded video to have a look at the figure and see everything that's been changed! "Leave it to Takara to take a good, existing Grimlock mold and turn it into something great. Takara basically rebuilt the FOC Grimlock from the ground up, giving us a new shell and head. If you're really into scale then this figure will fit perfectly into your RID display."
RAC reviews Combiner Wars Mirage, who is quite good - better than Sunstreaker or Ironhide, that's for certain - despite not living up to the Classics figure that preceded it. But face it: that's a hard act to follow! Continue to the review!
On Radio Free Cybertron's new review channel
, diecast has posted a video featuring Sphinx, the Mirage-inspired figure from Mastermind Creations.

Japanese Youtube reviewer wotafa has posted another new early look video for an upcoming third party product. This time it's the highly anticipated Spartan from MMC, inspired by comics character Impactor. The video shows off the toy nicely, giving step by step attention to the transformation, and showing all the details and design of both modes, and a size comparison to Generations Springer to show how it will fit in with a shelf full of Wreckers. Check out the embedded video below!
Is G1 Ironhide just cursed? RAC is starting to think so, because this is probably the best Ironhide figure he's ever handled... and except for the nice new headsculpt it looks nothing
like him. Keep reading to see the review!
Thanks to wotafa who's posted a new review to Youtube showing off Sphinx, the unofficial Masterpiece-style version of Mirage. As always, wotafa's video is in Japanese, but the visuals are very clear and easy to follow along with, and give a good overview of the toy in both modes, plus showing how it scales with official Masterpiece figures and a detailed walkthrough of the transformation. We've got the video embedded below, so keep reading!
RAC starts out Combiner Wars Wave 4 with Deluxe Sunstreaker! It's not a bad toy, but the plastic is terrible and there's already a perfectly good modern toy of G1 Sunstreaker. Even so, it has some good points - and Optimus Maximus has to have somebody
to use for arms and legs. Keep reading to see the review!
Forums member Tambeyoda has shared with us his video review for G2 Starscream, the latest shipped figure from the third Figure Subscription Service set. While the Club warned members that these figures would arrive misassembled with no help to be offered, Tambeyoda seems to be among a lucky few who received correctly assembled figures. Keep reading to check out the embedded video and get a good look at the figure in both modes.
RAC reviews Transformers: Devastation! It's a solid and fun game that focuses on replay value, perhaps at the expense of the single playthrough. And the presentation is very G1 - but is it too G1, or not G1 enough?

It was only a matter of time, with samples floating around in Asia it's almost a surprise it took this long before a video was made for the still officially unreleased Masterpiece Tracks. Youtube user Pancrazi has uploaded a video showing Tracks, showing off the accessories, the looks of the vehicle mode, and even some previously unrevealed details about how the robot mode is designed that might cast the figure in a slightly different light. We've got the video embedded, so click through and check it out!
Wotafa on Youtube has posted a new video looking at an early sample of DX9's Tyrant unofficial Masterpiece Galvatron. While the Titans Return Voyager Galvatron seems to be giving some people pause, this video shows that this unofficial effort still has plenty to offer, and is looking like a very solid stab at the character. The video is of course fully in Japanese, but the visuals are very self-explanatory, giving a good overview of Tyrant through both modes and the surprisingly uncomplicated transformation.

Forums member TMan has come by with a new review video today. The latest subject is Hasbro's new Masterpiece Starscream, available recently as a Toys R Us exclusive in the US. This version features the updated version of the MP Seeker body, and in the video we can see it compared to an original Takara Starscream, as well as a range of newer MP jets and more. The review is pretty in depth at half an hour long, so get comfortable and click through to watch the embedded video!
The Chosen Prime has posted a new video to their Youtube channel looking at Scraper, the incredibly cleverly named Scrapper-alike from Generation Toy's unofficial Constructicon team. In the video we get to see Scraper compared against earlier third party right-legs as well as a couple other figures of similar size, plus a good run through of the toy's modes and transformation. We've embedded the video, so keep reading to go and check that out!
Our good friend and forums member koolkollectibleskhai has stopped by once again to share with us his review of TF-02 Rodimus Prime from the ES-Gokin series. The licensed figure depicts the Autobot leader in super deformed style with plenty of articulation and a range of accessories, which we get to have a good look at through the course of the video. We've got the video embedded below, so click through and check it out!
