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.

Thanks to TFSource for sharing with us that Fansproject confirmed to them that Sigma-L, the long-awaited fourth figure in the popular Function-X line will ship next week. TFSource expects to have these in hand and ready to fill preorders late next week or early the week after. With nearly a year between Smartrobin, the previous Function release and the impending release of Sigma-L, we very much hope that Not-Skullcruncher, the last of the initial five designs revealed in summer 2012 will follow rather more quickly - and clear the way for the next batch teased at this past TFCon!
Site sponsor TFSource has posted new images from Mastermind Creations showing Zinnia, the recolor of their Cybertronian-style Arcee homage figure based on the Paradron Medic from the G1 cartoon. The figure has been designated R-08Z, and is currently expected to ship in November. Keep reading to check out the mirrored promo shots showing the super articulated Reformatted Series figure!
Fansproject Core has sent out another update letting existing registered website users know about the upcoming premium membership plan and preorders for the Core Trailer unit, a long awaited add on to Steel Core. They explain in this message that the Core Trailer will include the Soleron Ruthen Red Core figure, which was seen previously attached to Steel Core in the previous announcement message.

Not only has Chinese company Wei Jiang made oversized (Alternators/Masterpiece size) versions of Toyworld's Grindrod, Aurora and Trace, they have started to promote the series with a toy commercial and product demonstration for the children in China! Take a look!
Today we have renders of a pair of their upcoming combiners cassettes. You might want to compare them to the G1 characters Dial and Saur. The brontosaurus will probably be recolored as not-Sludge and Fullstop. The other one will be recolored into Shift. Shift and Fullstop will form the combiner called Reelthing.
Fullstop and Shift are potentially part of the upcoming Dinominions set, a team of fan-made dinosaur support cassettes for the Dinobots.
Included in the pictures are the G1 Dail and Saur toys, and concept images of Fullstop and Shift.
