The Titan-ship Carcer is not what it appears to be. With Windblade interfaced directly with its brain, its true nature is revealed. But neither she nor the infiltration team accompanying her could know just how bad that truth is, or why the other Titans went to such lengths to bury it forever.

From Minhduc Pham on Youtube we have the first correctly-oriented video look at MP-36 Masterpiece Megatron. The video has no dialogue, instead highlighting points with subtitle text, but it's clear enough as an overview of the new Megatron. Included after a look at accessories and articulation is a transformation sequence. Which takes about 12 minutes. The video is overall nearly half an hour long, and offers a good first look at the figure, due to ship in Japan within a few days. Click through to watch the embedded video below!
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!
Forums user chuckdawg1999 has come by to share another toy video with us. This time it's Warrior Class Soundwave from RID Combiner Force. Chuck writes, "Soundwave is a surprising addition to the RID line. Based off a mix of its Animated and WFC/FOC designs, with a touch of Prime mixed in; Soundwave is the most involved figure from the Combiner Force subline thus far. While some of the panels are a bit fiddly to peg together, the vehicle mode ends up quite solid. One regret is the lack of a hand-held weapon, but at least the shoulder cannon was included."

War with the Junkions! As the new visitors finally move against the Autobots, Optimus Prime rallies all the forces at his command to stop an invasion before it starts. But it may be Soundwave alone who has the power to bring this to an end, as he puts old teachings in to use once again. "New Cybertron, part 5: Future Glories Lost," written by John Barber (with quotations by James Roberts), drawn by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham. Read the full review!

There's a lot of versions of this mold in the pipeline, with a proper Laser Optimus Prime and Triple Changer Oct

Coming from our forums over this past weekend, Kool Kollectibles on Youtube has a video out for Masterpiece Grapple. This review keeps it quick and to the point, going over the unique features and parts for the retool of Masterpiece Inferno, as well as giving a good side by side comparison of both versions of the mold to highlight the considerable degree of alterations underwent in becoming Grapple. We have the video embedded below, click through to watch!
Optimus Prime and Pyra Magna meet at the singularity in the ruins of Crystal City to (hopefully but probably not successfully) settle their differences. As Starscream eavesdrops, Prime talks about the friends he lost in that place, including the story of how he met Bumblebee. Pyra Magna in turn has a story to tell, about how the Torchbearers' current incarnation came to be. "Ghost Stories" is written by John Barber with art by Priscilla Tramontano and colors by Thomas Deer, Josh Perez, and John-Paul Bove. Click here to go to the review!
On the RFC Reviews Youtube channel, diecast has posted a new video tonight for Masterpiece Cheetor, the second entry in TakaraTomy's Masterpiece Beast Wars line. Get a look at the features and articulation of both modes, and of course the transformation process that somehow makes the magic of mid-1990's CGI function in reality! The video is embedded below, click through now to watch!
Fresh off our forums, chuckdawg1999 has shared a quick video with us to show the new One Step Blurr figure from the RID Combiner Force line. Blurr has what may be a new transformation design, but whether it is or not, it's still a slick looking process going from one mode to the other. The video is embedded below, click through to get watching!
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!
Youtube user Rob A has released what we believe to be the first English language video review for Masterpiece Cheetor, which has just been released in Japan this past weekend. The video goes in to some fair depth on the figure, clocking in at over half an hour. There's a lengthy segment on the transformation, so if you want to keep that as a surprise, once it starts you can jump forward to about 21:55 for the start of the robot mode segment. You can watch the video right now, embedded in the full article below.
Forums member chuckdawg1999 is back again with a new video for us, showing off the TakaraTomy Leo Prime redeco of Titans Return Alpha Trion. Focusing mostly on how the deco works for the mold, we also get to see some alternate options for Prime-style Titan Masters on the toy - and find reusing Infinitus again was probably the right call.

The RFC Reviews channel has posted a new video tonight for the Warrior Class Blurr coming in the second wave of RID Combiner Force product. In this video we learn that everybody has been calling the pricepoint wrong since the packages evidently say "Warriors Class" rather than Warrior, but also that Blurr is continuing the increasing excellence shown by the line over the last year or so, looking all around super-appealing. The video is embedded below, so click through and watch now!
