Retailer The Chosen Prime has posted a video to Youtube featuring a detailed look at a copy of the much anticipated Pandinus figure from Maketoys. While still described as a testshot piece, it is reportedly very close to a final product, and lets us have a good overview of how this giant Scorponok inspired item will handle when it's released a little later this spring. Though the mass of the figure causes difficulties, we do get to see the transformation process between all three modes, plus detail on the headmaster figure as well. You can check out the entire video, embedded below!

Thanks to wotafa who's posted a new review to Youtube showing off Sphinx, the unofficial Masterpiece-style version of Mirage.

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!
