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.

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!
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!
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.

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!
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.
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!
TMan from our forums has posted a new video review, looking at a Shapeways project from Ariel's Customs, designed by fakebusker83. This two piece accessory set replaces the axe part with a gun and spoiler wing that can be put together in a couple different ways or used separately in robot mode, as well as improving the function of the mold's combiner torso integration. The video covers all of it, so click through and have a look!
Vangelus has posted a trio of reviews detailing the BadCube Bug Corps Old Time Series Value Pack! Claymore, Hypno, and Kickbutt are BadCube's takes on Insecticons Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback, and all look good! It's always nice when new toys retain Diaclone driver hatches.
