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
Generation-Toy has posted a set of photos to Weibo showing off the full set of their Guardian project - unofficial MP-size Protectobots. The team collectively falling under the GT-6 label is shown in basic shots of robot and vehicle together to give a general overview of the design style. Along with a couple of full-team shots, we do get to see the built out Guardian itself, albeit only in flat grey. Presumably colors and more individual figure detail will be forthcoming soon. You can get a look at the team in this early stage right now in the mirrored gallery just below!
Coming to use via Weibo, we have a look at another representative of the unofficial Masterpiece-style Aerialbots competition. This time from Zeta Toys we get to see some detailed looks at Silver Arrow, their Silverbolt, in prototype form. Mostly on display here is the aesthetic and detailing for the robot and jet modes, as little can be seen as far as the actual technical side of the figure as it's presented here. We have previously seen an early build of Zeta's Superion though which paired with this might offer some clues. Check out all the mirrored images below!
Planet X has posted a detailed gallery to their Facebook page showing off Pluto, the representation of Megatron for their War For Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron inspired unofficial figure lineup. Megatron's War For Cybertron design was of course the subject of an official toy several years ago, but this looks to be digging a fair bit deeper in the source design thanks to not having to pack in to the size (or budget) of a Deluxe toy. The figure displays quite a bit of posability and is shown with the large cannon as well as a sword accessory which can attach in both modes. We've mirrored the new photos, so click through and check it out!

FansToys has shared some brand new photos of Rouge, their upcoming release based on Arcee at the Masterpiece scale. We now get to see Rouge in full color and alongside other unofficial season 3 character figures. The styling of the robot diverges in some minor respects from the media source material, but at the same time, this unofficial take on Arcee does have a structurally complete vehicle form. We've got the promo photos mirrored below, so click through and take a look!
