Mastermind Creations Salvia Prominon Quick Review And Photos
ExVee - Friday, June 05, 2015
Forums member gema has stopped by to share a quick review of MMC's Salvia Prominon, currently the last iteration of Mastermind Creations' female robot mold that originated as an unofficial take on Arcee and has since stood as several distinct releases. Along with numerous photos, gema shares thoughts on the changes to the figure versus earlier releases. Click through and check it out!
Salvia Prominon comes with the most weapons of all the sixth releases. Overall, she comes with the same weapon as Azaleas with addition of her "Forge" Hammer or better known as the Forge of Solus.
Unlike Eupatorium's dull paint scheme, Salvia Prominon comes in a rather vibrance and well balanced mixture of gold, light purple and green. The configuration used is the same as Eupatorium with the wings attached to the front part of the alt mode rather than the side.
Honestly, Salvia Prominon is my favorite of all Mastermind Creations' fembots. However, just like Eupatiorium, Salvia Prominon's left leg pops off quite easily when transforming between mode, something that I never experienced with the first 4 variants.
It's been roughly 1 year since Azalea Stealth Assassin was released (before normal Azalea on November 2014) and Salvia Prominon is a fitting end for the variants (unless there's more repaints to come). The figure is properly done and despite only having a retooled head and a new weapon, the overall aesthetic is perfect and just like I said, fitting here "Prominon" status.
Mastermind Creations shared a few photos of their display at Cyber City Con, which had samples of some upcoming products. Azalea falls under the Ocular Max branding, and is a Masterpiece-style Arcee, offering its particular take on the familiar and now often-repeated G1 Arcee design. Also seen was Foxwire which will be part of the Reformatted series. This represents The Pet, as seen among the Decepticon Justice Division in select issues of More Than Meets The Eye. No release date or other details are available for these items at this time, but you can check out the display photos below!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Tons of Authentics talk this week. What do the "evergreen" toys do for Transformers fans? Plus we discuss the newly discovered Studio Series, and talk about movie toys we'd like to see tackled again. Also on the show we talk about the future of Transformers Legends from Takara Tomy, and two more third party Cliffjumpers on the way. All that plus we answer listener questions this week!
On their Facebook page, Planet X posted a number of photos of grey testshot samples of their trio of unofficial Insecticons, based on their appearances in Fall of Cybertron. As you may recall, previously an official Kickback was released based on this design as part of the 2012/2013 Generations line, but this will be a first shot at a physical representation for the other two. We get to see basic front and back views of each figure and some group shots. Scale, pricing, and planned release timeframe were not revealed in this post. Click through to see the mirrored images!
Alien Attack Toys' latest unofficial transforming robot offering appears to be starting to hit availability in parts of Asia. Through a couple of sources we have some in hand shots of what looks like a final (or if not a very, very close to final sample) of El Cid, based on Optimus Prime more or less as he appears in Age of Extinction, and The Last Knight. In particular we get to see things like the weapons in full color, and some close looks at the unmasked face option. Check out the images just below!
Via the Weibo pages of Alucardlee, and SunOfTheEmpire, we have a number of photos to share of Blitzkrieg, the Onslaught of Zeta Toys' unofficial Combaticon team. The images show a figure that can be switched from a cartoon inspired blank chest panel or a toy-derived, higher detail chest to suit different visual priorities. But mostly we see the 'combat base' made of most of the Bruticus torso elements, as well as how it can interact with Zeta's not-Blast Off as a launch platform. Plus we have some bonus shots showing a fully assembled Armageddon combined form. Click through to see them now!
