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!

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. Keep reading to see all three videos!
Forums member / voice actor, jON3.0 Bailey, has dropped by with what appears to be an early review of the BadCube Old Time Series Bug Corps Value Pack. This three pack contains the evil Bug Corps: Hypno, Kickbutt, and Claymore. As you can see these guys are homages to the G1 Insecticons. Get a look at their robot features with some ratchet joints, special weapons and more in the video review below.

Vangelus has uploaded a new video going over the Wardog figure from Badcube. This Masterpiece-esque figure has already gained attention for its transformation engineered to turn a large tank in to a robot the size of an MP Autobot Car. In this video review we get to see how that process works, as well as a full rundown on the poseability and build quality of the figure. Check out the embedded video below!
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. Click through and check out the embedded video.
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.
