Mech Ideas Apex and Geminus Video Review - Homages to Jumpstarers G1 Twin Twist and Topspin
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
Over on Weibo, FansHobby has posted a few new photos showing MB-06, their MP-scaled Powermaster Optimus Prime figure. On display is the non-super robot mode made just from the truck cab. Only a few angles are shown, but it starts to show what to expect the eventual finished product to look like. It's seen alongside their unofficial Black Convoy/RID Scourge ...as well as an iPhone for an attempt at objective scale. Also shown is the Powermaster component itself, whether you prefer it as Hi-Q or Ginrai. We've mirrored the photos, keep reading and take a look!
From Weibo user bandaimaru, we've got a few shots of a prototype of Toyworld's unofficial Cosmos figure. What we expect to be Masterpiece scale (which in Autobot Mini-Vehicle terms means probably Deluxe-ish) is seen in full color, making the project at its current stage look quite good, for those to whom the design and proportions of G1 Cosmos hold a special place. The figure doesn't seem to have its own codename yet, and likewise it's maybe a bit too early for release info. But you can sure enjoy looking for now! Check it all out in the gallery below.
Maketoys has posted a new update on Facebook for the next in their RE:Master line of Masterpiece scale figures. We've got new color images of Contact Shot, their take on Targetmaster Pointblank. Various angles and poses of the robot are shown, plus an overview of the vehicle mode including opening canopy with driver compartment. And we get to see a closeup of the Targetmaster figure, plus alternate face and helmet options for the figure. We've got all of it mirrored, so click through to have a look!
Just announced are the MM-X Toro & MM-XI Coprimozzo Set featuring Unofficial Hubcap and Cliffjumper figures from from XTransbots. Toro and Coprimozzo are a pair of transforming street cars that are fashioned on a different, more sporty model, than the old VW Bug. Each of these figures stand about 4.50 inches tall in robot mode and feature die-cast parts and real rubber tires. Read on for more details below.
This evening on Facebook, Fanstoys has shared several images of a color testshot of their upcoming figure Phoenix. This figure is based on Skyfire and his almost entirely made up cartoon model which has not gotten much merchandise attention over the years. Phoenix is scaled for a Masterpiece shelf, leaving it towering over ...well, just about everything, going by the included height comparison shot! While release is projected in Spring of 2017, perhaps a color testshot being ready now could indicate an slightly earlier delivery? Time will tell, but for now click through to see the photos!
