BlackMagnus - 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 R-17CS Continuum Add-On Set is for the R-17 Carnifex figure. This kit includes two 3.5cm tall Millifex and Billifex pilots of the jet and tank that combine to form Carnifex. Millifex and Billifex transform to engines and plug into Carnifex's chest in robot mode. An alternate head and 2 pieces of snap-on chest armor will give Carnifex an updated look. Plug the 6 cannons in to the base mode for enhanced firepower.
There's a new MP Class figure just in from Coolsvile by way of Toy World. This guy looks quite familiar to us as G1 Jazz, but its not official. The scaling, and detail on this figure is one of the best so far with excellent proportions in robot mode. The TW-M05 Coolsville is listed to ship sometime in first quarter of this year, now on preorder at $89.99 USD from BigBadToyStore.com
Via Facebook, Perfect Effect has announced their "Beast Gorira" project has been unavoidably delayed due to holiday scheduling conflicts. The unofficial take on an updating of Optimal Optimus is now expected to release around March. They've also shared new images of a color production sample, allowing us to see this figure next to Masterpiece Optimus Primal, proving the considerable size of Beast Gorira, looking at least close to being show accurately scaled! The images are mirrored below, click through and check it out!
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.
