Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared another video with us. This is a look at the first two waves of the Crash Combiners play pattern in Robots in Disguise Combiner Force. The first wave of two packs, Optimus and Strongarm, and Bumblebee and Sideswipe have been available for a while, but wave 2 pack of Skysledge and Stormhammer are just now beginning to hit in the US, and this video gives a chance to get a look at these new figures - including seeing the components get swapped around and mix and matched! Check it out embedded below.
From our forums, TMan978 has shared a video of an interesting new figure. Wei Jiang, known fairly well for making upscaled, surprisingly high quality knockoffs of both official products and the occasional third party item has recently made an upsized iteration of Generations Arcee, theoretically scaled to Masterpiece figures. There's a few other things altered with the figure too, though probably more on the minor side. Check out the embedded video below to have a look at this offering.
New on the forums today, our friend chuckdawg1999 has shared a video with us for Deluxe Barricade from the first wave of Premier Edition The Last Knight figures. Highlighting the more "traditional" body design and nice loadout of accessories, this figure seems to be the high point among this initial Deluxe offering, over Berserker and the two redecos. You can find the video embedded below in the full article!
On our forums today, chuckdawg1999 has shared his video covering Barricade and Hound from The Last Knight's Turbo Changer assortment - known more commonly as the One Step Changers. These two are the only new molds from this first assortment, reflecting the characters' updated robot and vehicle looks for the new movie. You can get a good look at both figures as well as see their conversion action from vehicle to robot and back in the video which we have embedded below. Click through and have a look!
The folks over at TTPM Toy Reviews have posteda quick video review of the Knight Armor Turbo Changer Optimus Transformers: The Last Knight figure. Get a look at the Turbo Changer class figure that will be out in stores soon.
Tonight via diecast on the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, we've got a look at Toyworld's unofficial Cosmos figure, Space Racer. Scaled to fit in with Masterpieces using MP Bumblebee as a guide (meaning it's in the neighborhood of a regular Deluxe), Space Racer seems on the less complicated side of third party, but ultimately the review of the figure does not seem super positive towards some of the design decisions made. The review is embedded below, click through to take a look and learn more!
Straight from our forums, chuckdawg1999 is bringing a new video for Deluxe Berserker from The Last Knight. Having been briefly available online against the street date, we get a little bit early look at one of the two new mold Deluxes for the first wave. And maybe not a great one, as the transformation process seems to take several minutes in the review, owing at least partly to its panel-heavy nature. You can find out more about it for yourself by watching the video below.
Prowl is the second of two new Cyber Series figures coming out in some international markets. Thanks again to chuckdawg1999 on our forums we have a review to share with you for this figure. Though like Jetfire it has some of the characteristic design choices of its line, like absent mid-limb swivel joints and such, all in all this looks like a pretty solid Prowl figure to join the lineup of these larger scale, simple toys. Check out the review video below.
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has gone after the newest offerings from the Generations Cyber Series, the line of large figures based on engineering designs of Legends and Cyberverse Class figures, designed for select international markets outside North America. In this video we get to see Jetfire, a moderate retool of the previously released Starscream figure. You can get a look at the differences between the figures, and how those impact transformation, all in the embedded video below!
We've got another quick review from the RFC Reviews channel as diecast takes a look at the one fully new mold from the Chaos on Velocitron box set, Fastclash. The trademark-renamed Fastlane had been stated at the Toy Fair Q&A event to be a unique size class between Legends and Deluxe, but as diecast demonstrates in this review, the figure seems very decidedly just a Legends Class. You can find out all about that and more in the video below!
From Minhduc Pham on Youtube we have the first correctly-oriented video look at MP-36 Masterpiece Megatron. The video has no dialogue, instead highlighting points with subtitle text, but it's clear enough as an overview of the new Megatron. Included after a look at accessories and articulation is a transformation sequence. Which takes about 12 minutes. The video is overall nearly half an hour long, and offers a good first look at the figure, due to ship in Japan within a few days. Click through to watch the embedded video below!
New this weekend on the RFC Reviews Youtube channel is a lengthy look at Phoenix from Fans Toys. This new unofficial take on the G1 cartoon's Skyfire design has been anticipated for quite a while. The video spends some time demonstrating just how very large this figure turned out, dwarfing even most official Combiner toys, not to mention other Masterpieces and unofficial equivalents. In the video, diecast makes sure to note this is a testshot piece and does not have a complete accessory loadout, but all the essentials are accounted for. The video is embedded below, so take a look!
Forums user chuckdawg1999 has come by to share another toy video with us. This time it's Warrior Class Soundwave from RID Combiner Force. Chuck writes, "Soundwave is a surprising addition to the RID line. Based off a mix of its Animated and WFC/FOC designs, with a touch of Prime mixed in; Soundwave is the most involved figure from the Combiner Force subline thus far. While some of the panels are a bit fiddly to peg together, the vehicle mode ends up quite solid. One regret is the lack of a hand-held weapon, but at least the shoulder cannon was included."

There's a lot of versions of this mold in the pipeline, with a proper Laser Optimus Prime and Triple Changer Oct
ne being the two most notable. But, is it worth having this specific version? Well... Click here to read and watch the review!
Coming from our forums over this past weekend, Kool Kollectibles on Youtube has a video out for Masterpiece Grapple. This review keeps it quick and to the point, going over the unique features and parts for the retool of Masterpiece Inferno, as well as giving a good side by side comparison of both versions of the mold to highlight the considerable degree of alterations underwent in becoming Grapple. We have the video embedded below, click through to watch!
On the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, diecast has posted a new video tonight for Masterpiece Cheetor, the second entry in TakaraTomy's Masterpiece Beast Wars line. Get a look at the features and articulation of both modes, and of course the transformation process that somehow makes the magic of mid-1990's CGI function in reality! The video is embedded below, click through now to watch!
Fresh off our forums, chuckdawg1999 has shared a quick video with us to show the new One Step Blurr figure from the RID Combiner Force line. Blurr has what may be a new transformation design, but whether it is or not, it's still a slick looking process going from one mode to the other. The video is embedded below, click through to get watching!
On Youtube, Japanese reviewer wotafa has a video up for Planet X's Apocalypse. This is the figure inspired by War For Cybertron Trypticon, and infamously being sold as two separate pieces - though the review does fortunately cover both at once. While the review is in Japanese, it's very easy to follow along and understand what's being shown about the figure. We've got the video embedded below for you to check out, plus a quick note on a particular point in the video. Keep reading!
