Retro Robot Radio recently got a chance to review the painted prototype of the Play With This Too Desolataur action figure. You can see it live here.
Vangelus has posted a new review video featuring a pre-release copy of Chiguhr, DX9 Toys' take on a jumbo-size notionally Masterpiece-compatible Astrotrain. While the review goes over the stylistic mismatch between Chiguhr and actual Masterpieces, it makes a strong case for identifying the toy with a Classics collection.

Here's my review of these pretty disappointing 3rd party figures by Ark Studio! I incorrectly thought they were MP sized, but these are small, and the quality isnt even up to par with the Combiner Wars Legends figures!
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron was recently given the opportunity to review a test shot of the upcoming Fans Toys Sever, their Snarl-alike done in the Masterpiece style! It's a pretty impressive, massive figure, and diecast seems pretty pleased with it. See for yourself by continuing to the full post!
Following up the photo gallery of the Motormaster-derived Lone Wolf figure, G1Hexatron has passed on a link to a video for the testshot. Showing roughly the same things as the photos, aspects like the transformation engineering will likely be better demonstrated in video, plus some insights from the designers are shared as well.

Vangelus has received an early copy of Guttur and recorded an extensive review video about Gigapower's take on a Masterpiece-style G1 Snarl. This video represents the "metallic version" featuring metallic paint where another edition of the toy is planned to have chromed elements instead. While Dinobot saturation seems to be well outliving the flood of Predakings in the realm of third party repetition that's cropped up over the last year or so, Gigapower looks like a strong contender for Dinobots in this style.

Vangelus has posted a new review of Alberich, the Rippersnapper-based left arm piece for Unique Toys' Ordin gestalt project. With a detailed look at all modes, including an impressive bit of extra tech exclusive to the combination mode, it seems apparent that Alberich isn't as much of a stand out toy on its own like the predecessor Troll had been. That's far from calling it a failure, however! Click through and check out the video.
Warbotron's latest combiner limb has shipped, and Radio Free Cybertron's diecast got there first! Clocking in at 29 minutes, diecast covers the figure in-depth, including some interesting size comparisons. (It looks as though it's almost
a good scale to put with your Masterpieces!) Keep reading to see for yourself!
Thanks to Shartimus Prime who's hooked it up with some special this time. We like special things, Yes! Fix your peepers on the Feral Rex Predaking Gold Plated Crazy Devy Wings complete with the CDMW 39 King's Power Parts upgrade. Get the break down on the blingtastic review with all the thrills and spills that only can Sharti can do. Read on to watch the video and stare that image galley.
Reviewer Thew Adams has released a new video today covering Transistor, the next entry in Masterpiece-style transforming figures by Keith's Toy Or Possibly Fantasy Club. The outcome is generally positive with only minor points to the negative and perhaps a fragility warning to be had. If you're curious, this review can fill in a lot of information for you in an easy chunk of about six minutes. Click through and check it out!
Shartimus Prime hooks it up with a new review for the EAVI Metal Transistor Transformers Masterpiece Blaster 3rd Party figure. Get a look at the G1 inspired MP class action figure from out of the box and all the details from robot, to transformation, to boombox mode and more. Read on to watch the video review and image gallery for the EAVI Metal Transistor now.
New up today, Vangelus has an in-depth review of a very long-awaited third party item, the most ambitious attempt so far to improve Fall of Cybertron Bruticus by replacing its entire core body and a good chunk of both arms to make up for the necessary engineering compromises of the retail toys. This is a long video but clearly goes over everything you need to find out about this set that will be reaching retailers soon. Click through and check it out!
Since appearing out of the blue during TFCon Chicago, Toyworld's Grant, a downscaled, improved take on Grand Maximus has attracted a lot of attention. T2RX6 has posted the first video review of this figure to Youtube in order to answer a lot of curiosity for those who weren't at TFCon to see one of these personally. Showing a range of size comparisons and testing cross compatibility with other Headmaster heads, the video covers just about all the bases for this mystery figure. Click through to check out the embedded video review!
Vangelus (you know the one) has put up a video featuring both Brawny and Backland, the Masterpiece-scale/style figures representing Brawn and Outback by Badcube, formerly known as Cubex. While the video does not entirely
make it clear, these appear to be test shot figures, but should be overall representative of the production units. If Huff had poor reception enough to drive Cubex to rebranding, this video will be a big step towards determining if they've come out of it for the better. Keep reading to see the embedded video!
RobotKingdom's Facebook page has posted a link to Kuma Style's video review of TFC Phobus! Phobus is Not-Divebomb, the fifth part of the Ares combiner (who looks an awful lot like Predaking). Not only does he have a massive set of wings expandable to a Predaking-appropriate wingspan, but even comes with Power Core Combiner-compatible connectors so he can quit the Predacons in a huff and go form his own
combiner team with blackjack and drones. Keep reading to see the review!
