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!
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!
Diecast of Radio Free Cybertron has posted his review of Toyworld Assault, their take on Masterpiece Thrust! He's taken a comprehensive look at this impressively large alternative to Masterpiece Thrust, which towers over even MP Starscream. And it even comes with a very large and impressive stand! Keep reading to have a look.
We've got another review video from diecast on the RFC Reviews channel, talking about Downbeat from Maketoys. Downbeat is one of a surprisingly small assortment of unofficial Masterpiece Jazzes, which bring slightly different ideas to the table. Downbeat seemingly isn't perfect, though it presents as more a collection of small problems than any one significant one. You can see the details of vehicle and robot modes, and the lengthy, but honestly pretty nice looking transformation process in between. The review is embedded below, so go ahead and watch right now.
Changing gears a bit tonight, diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has posted a new video to the RFC Reviews channel showing off a testshot of Arch Enemy, the first figure in the Master Builder series from new group Fans Hobby. Despite being a testshot piece, the review demonstrates good design and build quality overall with an appropriately simple transformation. And about twice the volume of the original official Robots in Disguise Scourge toy! We've embedded the review below, so go ahead and take a look!
Despite numerous photos already released for it, Iron Factory's Lord Scorpion figure, based on G1 Scorponok, never had a clear comparative scale revealed. Thanks to a video review by Pancrazi, that has finally changed. The figure, while very bulky, seems to be just a hair taller than a current Deluxe as seen in the video. The video otherwise runs through the three modes and shows poseability - as well as what looks like a very sturdy build. The video is in Chinese, but the visuals are clear to follow. It's embedded below, so click through for a nice demo of this figure!
Paik4Life has a new video on Youtube getting some hands on time with an early color sample of Kultur, the figure based on Decepticon Justice Division leader Tarn from the IDW comics. This piece was on display this weekend at Cyber City Con in Texas, and while it exists at too early of a point to safely demonstrate transformation, the video does show off some of its details and articulation to give a nice first impression of what this figure will be offering when it goes in to full production in the near future. The video is embedded below, so keep reading to take a look!
YU-NO has shared a quick video showing off the upcoming Alpha Prime figure from Sparktoys. This unofficial Optimus is based on the Dreamwave War Within series design which in official toys has only been represented by the Titanium Series figure. In this video we get complete turnarounds of vehicle and robot modes, an articulation overview, and a demo of the transformation, doing a nice job of showing off the figure in advance of full reviews. Keep reading to see the embedded video!
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!
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has posted a video featuring Sunsurge from Badcube, the unofficial Masterpiece Sunstreaker figure.

Both videos are embedded below, so click through and take a look!

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.
