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.

The Omegalock Facebook group has posted images of the Hot Spot analogue in the TFC Prometheus set, and it looks pretty decent. Omegalock announced that they'd have the figure along with other as-yet unproduced third party prototypes at this year's Auto Assembly, so if you're in the UK for the second weekend of August be sure to go check them out!

Facebook user Encline Designs Airbrush Studios has posted images of a test shot of Gigapower's HQ-03, which is a Masterpiece-scaled take on Dinobot Snarl. It looks good! Very close to the original design and very dynamic. Keep reading to see the mirrored photos!
Hasbro has just launched SuperFanArt.com - a coup of a domain name if there ever was one - which currently offers fans the ability to upload and print fan renders of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic characters through Shapeways. No other information is currently available, though there will be a presence at SDCC and a few fan pieces are already available for purchase. What this will mean for Transformers- and especially Third Parties and customizers who offer parts through Shapeways - remains to be seen. Click through for the link!
