Master Mind Creations The Awakening Airborne Squad Video Review and Images
Jack - Friday, September 14, 2012
Master Mind Creations are shippting their The Awakening edition that portrays the Airborne Squad obtaining their earth form and recovering from the hibernation mode. Product wise, it is made to resemble the feeling of a prototype, with the quality of a finished product. The figure offered orginally at the San Jose Super Toy Show and later by Ages 3 and Up is now arriving with some new images of the packaging and a video review by Peaugh giving us the scoop on this interesting exclusive toy.
As Headmaster Don pointed out during a recent RFC Mini-Cast, MMC's Carnifex is a very IDW take on Overlord. If that was putting you off as well, you may be interested in these upgrade kit photos that MMC has just posted! Carnifex Continuum adds a fair number of G1 features back into your third-party unofficial Overlord toy - keep reading for the photos and details.
Striker Noir is the latest figure to join the MT Cross Dimension Series and is a black repaint of MTCD-01 Striker Manus. Striker Noir transforms from robot to semi truck and includes 2 axe weapons and a transforming wind vane gun. He also comes with a Giant Weapons Pack that includes: short gun, arm blade, machine gun, star saber, striker cannon, handgun, katana, Striker Manus weapon holder, and an axe extension bar.
Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, 3P Loves Springer, and they think you do too! This week on the RFC Mini-cast: John, Don, Mellvarr and Rob Clay discuss: Why does 3P love Springer and not Arcee? Plus we analyze IDW’s impact on Transformers and Revolution’s effectiveness.
Dean Lee on Facebook has a high detail gallery up for the upcoming first product from the Fanshobby group. Arch Enemy is the debut of the Master Builder series, offering a Masterpiece scale take on original Robots in Disguise's Scourge, or Black Convoy for the Car Robots enthusiasts. A solo Car Robots/RID Masterpiece may seem a little odd, but it's hard to deny that the actual product looks super nice and captures the design well. We've mirrored some of the gallery, keep reading to find it below and get a good look at this figure!
Wrapping up our look at ToyCraft's coverage of Ani-Expo HobbyFree we have a catch-all for the remaining third party groups that were covered. It looks like no one had a lot new to show, and most of what did turn up under the other brands was far enough to be in color sample stages. A GCreations Optimus-alike could be seen, X-Transbots' not-Cosmos, plus testshots of their Trailbreaker and Hoist figures, a couple modes of DX9's try at Sixshot, and more things that we've seen to some capacity already. The final round of shots is mirrored below, keep reading to catch up with the rest!
