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!
On his Youtube channel, emgo316 has reviewed Storm Emperor, previously advertised as "Granville", a Megatron figure from Megasteel whose design was inspired by IDW's Stormbringer miniseries. The video seems to agree with other more brief assessments, that the figure suffers from varying OC that hurt what might otherwise be acceptable design choices and a nice overall look. The review is about half an hour long, so grab a drink and click through to watch the embedded video!
Wotafa has uploaded a video to Youtube looking at an early sample copy of Provider, Unique Toys' unofficial Masterpiece-ish compatible Octane figure. The video does a great job demonstrating the amazingly effective transformation between truck and aircraft, and then to robot mode, giving a really fantastic showing to this figure. The video is entirely in Japanese, but the visuals are more than clear enough to understand how Provider works. Check it out, embedded below!
Chosen Prime has added a video to their Youtube channel showing off the Mixmaster-inspired figure from Generation Toy's Gravity Builder team. While the video lacks any narration to explain the finer points, you can still get a decent overview of the figure, focusing mostly on the rather complicated transformation process from vehicle to robot, with a little bit added to show what sort of poseability you might expect out of the final released product. We've embedded the video, so click through and check it out.
YouTuber chuckdawg1999 has posted a review of Titan Changers Optimus Prime! Chuck has a history of reviewing the "kids' line" toys that many other video reviewers and/or collectors wouldn't bother with, and this figure is no exception. If you're curious about this figure, this review may well save you some money. Click through to watch!
Our forums member koolkollectibleskhai has shared another review video with us, this time showing off Unite Warriors Menasor, released just recently in Japan and southeast Asia. In the video we get to take a good look at each figure, and get some details on what's changed between this set and the Hasbro releases, besides the alternation to Motormaster's hip ratchets that we've been hearing about over the last week or two. We've got the video embedded, so click through and have a look!
Our forum member koolkollectibleskhai has stopped by to bring us another video. This time it's the recently released exclusive Diaclone blue Masterpiece Bluestreak. By far the prettiest of the family of Datsun color variations, we not only get a good look at the figure itself, but with side by side comparison to the original colors Bluestreak as well, highlighting how nice this deco actually looks. We've got the video embedded below, so click through and have a look!
Our friend chuckdawg has stopped by the forums to once again share with us a new review video. This time he's looking at the Toys R Us exclusive Optimus Prime vs Megatronus Legion Class Two Pack from Clash of The Transformers. Optimus is another recolor of the existing RID Optimus Legion, while Megatronus is new, but isn't without faults to be found. We've got the video embedded below, so keep reading and take a look!
Our forums member TMan has just shared with us his review videos for the whole of Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 4. Get a good look at each figure in detail, including the highs ...and not so highs... of everyone in this assortment. While we're still waiting for Battle Core Optimus to turn up and finish out the team, in the meantime we can focus on each of the group individually. We've got four videos embedded, so click through and have a look!
Following the relatively simplistic PC-03 Superion upgrade, wotafu on Youtube has posted a video looking at the upgrade for Menasor, which is surprisingly more complex than it ever looked prior to release. While not the most elegant solution, it impressively avoids primary partsforming between each mode of the Motormaster toy. The upgrade reinforces a popular fanmode for Menasor, though it may not work quite right without giving Menasor ankle tilts via separate upgrade parts. Click through and check out the video!
Just now starting to be released, we've got video coverage of Perfect Effect's Perfect Combiner series upgrade kit for Superion from Japanese Youtube reviewer wotafu. While all the dialogue is in Japanese, the video very clearly shows how the new parts work, including installation of the replacement head. It also reveals that the chest panel adds a little bit more than s small change of visual style as it originally appeared. Click through to have a look at the embedded video!
Benscollectables on Youtube has uploaded a lengthy video for Leonidas from Perfect Effect, their interpretation of Lio Convoy as the Zoids Liger Zero. This figure was first teased quite a long while back, and is finally getting in collector hands. In the video Ben goes over the robot in great detail including articulation and accessories, as well as going step by step through the surprisingly low-complexity (for Perfect Effect) transformation. We've got the video embedded in the full post, so click through and spend half an hour checking out this figure!
Once again chuckdawg1999 has stopped by the forums to let us know about a new video review. This time he's looking at Serpent O.R. from the Club's third Subscription Service batch. This figure joins the ranks of both retail and other exclusive Transformers/GI Joe crossovers that have come up in surprising numbers this year. Click through to check out the embedded video and see how this recolor of Generations Scourge turned out!
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has brought us a couple of new videos, taking a look at the unusual Cyber Series figures which so far seem to mostly be a South American product, though import retail is starting to make these available to the rest of us. In these videos, we get to see Starscream and the large Commander level Optimus. Whether these will be worth import markup we maybe can;t say, but to check out what they have to offer, keep reading and take a look at the embedded videos!
