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
PINK ASSASSIN - Armed with a blaster and two blades the Pink Assassin is a fully articulated, fully transforming figure from Iron Factory. When not in use she can store het weaponry on her backpack. This item is priced at $19.99. Get yours now at bigbadtoystore.com
Iron Factory has posted one of their TFCon reveals to their Weibo page today, in the form of the first color photos of Lord Scorpion. Besides giving us a look at the excellent and vibrant coloring, we also have a release timeframe, currently projected for October!
Alas, these photos do highlight one potentially sad note: a size comparison with Pink Assassin gives a clearer idea of the true scale, which now looks to be between 5.5 and 6 inches - a far cry from the 7+ promised by retailers. Is that a dealbreaker for you? These photos may make that decision hard. Keep reading and see for yourself!
Having been revealed previously some time back, today was the debut of a full color sample of Fanstoys' Galvatron-alike Sovereign. Though certainly not the first Galvatron attempt at this scale or style, it's certainly making an impression. It looks like this will have two cannon barrel options (presumably the opaque is to better represent an animation appearance) and one or both will have light up features. You can check out the mirrored photos below - keep reading!
Joining the TFCon reveals from Fanstoys today was Lupus, another Masterpiece-alike figure. This version of Weirdwolf follows on from animation style - for better or worse. While the body styling may prove divisive in that respect, a swappable face panel will be included in case the animation derived face just isn't working for you. And of course the entire head does transform as it ought to. Keep reading for the photos mirrored from the Fanstoys Weibo page.
Just revealed by Fanstoys today was Phoenix, a Masterpiece-styled G1 Skyfire. Attempting to adhere to the scale of the cartoon as best as possible, Phoenix is absolutely huge, standing almost twice as tall as MP-10 Optimus! We're sure it will have a price tag to match. There have been some seriously disappointing attempts to recreate this specific media-only design in the past, will Fanstoys finally do it right and produce the figure fans deserve?
