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?

Through all the ups and downs, it's been a mostly positive experience and one that I hope continues to 2000 videos and beyond.

Meteor Operation has presented us with several photos of a new third party product. Well known accessory maker Dr. Wu has branched off and formed Dr. Q, which for the moment seems to be engaging in making SD-style figures of Transformers characters. The first example is an Optimus and Grimlock based on the G1 designs, but made for Optimus to ride Grimlock as in the movies. We don't have any release information yet, but for now you can keep reading to check out the photos!

Mega Steel has released a new picture of their Buster figure based on G1 Blaster.
