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?

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
This weekend in China, a toy show took place that saw quite a number of our usual suspect unofficial robot makers displaying their products. Notables include a look at Toyworld's Coolsville, another of the MP-alike Not-Jazzes, Galaxy Meteor from Maketoys, which is an MP-ish take on Cybertron Starscream. Iron Factory had their seekers out, including prototypes for Conehead versions. And we get a look at one of the many, many ...many... unofficial Springers in the Masterpiece style, from OpenPlay. You can find photos of these and more in the gallery below, as well as photographer credits. Keep reading!
New this weekend on the RFC Reviews Youtube channel is a lengthy look at Phoenix from Fans Toys. This new unofficial take on the G1 cartoon's Skyfire design has been anticipated for quite a while. The video spends some time demonstrating just how very large this figure turned out, dwarfing even most official Combiner toys, not to mention other Masterpieces and unofficial equivalents. In the video, diecast makes sure to note this is a testshot piece and does not have a complete accessory loadout, but all the essentials are accounted for. The video is embedded below, so take a look!
It's a surprise to no one at all, Iron Factory has finally revealed the Black Zarak version of their unofficial Scorponok figure, Lord Scorpion. This Dark Matter Version adds the distinctive spear weapon and redesigned helmet to the figure, which along with the redeco makes a good image of Black Zarak. As we eventually learned, Lord Scorpion is only about as big as a chunky Deluxe, but it's hard to deny how attractive this release is - especially if you have a small-scale figure shelf to add it to!

Site Sponsor TFSource has posted images for Generation Toy's GT-05 Leaders set! This set, priced at $69.99 and due between April and May, features Legends-scale renditions of G1 Optimus Prime and Megatron - both of which look really good and quite poseable for their size. Keep reading to see!
