Mech Ideas Apex and Geminus Video Review - Homages to Jumpstarers G1 Twin Twist and Topspin
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.

Glad to see that this got posted, I tried a half a dozen times but, the issue seems to have been fixed. Thanks! More Wreckers please!
Well it's about time these two got some love, at least after their rather gruesome fate in LSOTW
The Action Robo Facebook page has put up some shots of a display testshot of Gun Dog, the Masterpiece-styled Hound by MakeToys. At this stage the figure seems to be sporting its final plastic colors, and is just waiting for someone to come at it with a paint brush to realize the final details. MakeToys is recognizing proper scaling, as Gun Dog can be seen a fair bit shorter than Cupola, keeping it on par with the official MPs of the 84-85 Autobot Cars. Click through and take a look!
Third party Transformers news for the week ending July 4th, 2015.
Includes the latest news from Badcube, Beelzeboss, Generations Toys, Hero Hobby, Iron Factory, Perfect Effect, Toymecha, Toyworld, Wukong and X2 Toys.
Spotlight this week is on former FCC commissioner Mark S. Fowler!
Screen shot this week is Sherman from the 1989 film Millennium.
Group ToyMecha has seemingly launched with photos of a prototype figure based on Punch/Counterpunch, targeting the Masterpiece scale. Seen in comparison with the official Tigertrack, the currently unnamed double-agent is similar in height range with MakeToys' Cupola/Not-Chromedome. We can only glimpse the figure's alternate robot mode so far, but otherwise we're given a decent look at the design. Click through to check out the photos!
Over on their Facebook page, BadCube has published a piece of concept art for "Sunsurge", their take in a Masterpiece-alike Sunstreaker, carrying on from their increasingly popular offerings like Wardog/Warpath and the Insecticon "Evil Bug Corps". They're strongly indicating there will be more of this to be seen at TFCon Toronto later this month, so fans who've been waiting for a Masterpiece option on this character ought to keep watch on this one! Click through to check it out.
Perfect Effect has announced that they're adding the Constructicons' guns to their PC-07 upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Devastator! In addition, they've announced that both their PC-06 Devastator upgrades and PC-07 Constructicon upgrades should be compatibile with either the Takara or Hasbro releases - though presumably that's the biggest concern for PC-06, as PC-07 largely brings the Hasbro version up to speed with Takara's Unite Warriors UW04 version. Keep reading for the announcement and a teaser photo!
