By BlackMagnus on Thursday, November 29, 2012
Due to his historic 1000th review, YouTube user Peaugh has been given a very special oppurtunity. Mech Ideas has given him the first looks at full figure test shots of their G1 Jumpstarters homages, Topspin and Twin Twist. Otherwise known as Geminus and Apex respectively. Get a preview of the figures from Peaugh who shows off the transformation, robot mode, alternate mode, accessories, and a size comparison with other Fansproject Wreckers Defender and Assaulter action figures. Watch the video below now to see the review.
Wow. 1000 videos. Who've thought? Special thanks to TFSOURCE, Esmond and the crew at MASTERMIND CREATIONS, Mech Ideas, Fansproject, CheersIan, GMFan101, TJ Duckett, GogDog, Aksmth, ichab0d, crasis, jarodimus, SEANxLONG, Optibotimus, Emgo316, Vangelus, Thew, KalEl, the Random Review, and all the other reviewers out there*, new and old, who have made this a community and who have found a way to have fun playing with toys on the internet. Through all the ups and downs, it's been a mostly positive experience and one that I hope continues to 2000 videos and beyond.

What did you hope and dream for when it came to a set of modern day high end G1 inspired Dinobots? Did you hope that Takara Tomy would follow Masterpiece MP-8 Grimlock up with the rest of the crew, all equally engineered to a high quality and representing toy and cartoon faithfully? You may have had enough of waiting and thrown your hat into the 3rd Party ring where we find FansToys and their Iron Dibots, or GigaPower and their Gigasaurs.
Mastermind Creations has shared images to their Facebook page of the upcoming Reformatted Anarchus figure, better known as Kaon from the Decepticon Justice Division! Hailing from the pages of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye, Anarchus transforms into an electric chair, as suggested by the fixtures on his shoulders. Keep reading to see the photos!
Dr. Wu has started a new imprint known as Dr. Q, and the first product up is a 4" tall Babylock!

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!
Our friends at TFSource have brought us our first look at the next member of Toyworld's dino robot combiner project, D-03 Corelock. This figure inspired by Grimlock will make up the core of the eventual combiner robot, but looks great as a standalone piece in it's highly detailed sculpt that stays faithful to the source material. Corelock will join Roar and Muddy as they wait for their last two teammates. You can find the two already released members of the dino robot team over at TFSource! Keep reading to see all the photos.
