Third Party
Planet X Apocalypse Unofficial War For Cybertron Trypticon Video Review
ExVee - Tuesday, February 28, 2017


On Youtube, Japanese reviewer wotafa has a video up for Planet X's Apocalypse. This is the figure inspired by War For Cybertron Trypticon, and infamously being sold as two separate pieces - though the review does fortunately cover both at once. While the review is in Japanese, it's very easy to follow along and understand what's being shown about the figure. We've got the video embedded below for you to check out, plus a quick note on a particular point in the video. Keep reading!

Apocalypse comes with several purple LED modules to go in various places around the figure. These are the subject of something of a design flaw, as they seem to not be able to be turned off unless removed from their housings. We've been told similar LED modules were used in Genesis - the Omega Supreme-alike - as a futureproofing so the LEDs can be easily eliminated from future production runs if desired. In any case, the LEDs seem easy enough to remove, but it feels like a less than ideal approach.

More Third Party News
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of fun stuff going on this week! We announce the winners of our Twitter contest, we are giving away Titans Return Arcee and The Last Knight Valvotron! The voice cast for Power of the Prime was announced! We share our thoughts! Plus we speculate on rumored upcoming Transformers assortments. Also, there's a ton of other news this week including a heavy third party week, with new Combaticons, Aerialbots, and upgrade parts. We talk about the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Ironhide, new photos of Volcanicus and much, much more! 


Coming from Weibo, we have some grey prototype images showing MechPlanet's small-scale Optimus Prime-alike. HS02 seems to be called "Mini Lider" and while the photo quality for many of these isn't great, it seems to be a decent representation of the character design. The photos we have show an energon axe and rifle, plus flip up panels on the forearm in a similar manner to the pop-up communicator screen from the Masterpiece. The chest is also conspicuously hinged, which probably means it has a matrix and storage space for it. You can find all these photos mirrored below!
We recently saw an unofficial, non-transforming, high detail action figure representing Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime by Iron Warrior. Iron Warrior has just shown off another upcoming figure of the same type, this one called "Strife 07" and based on Brawl from the 2007 Transformers movie. This figure likewise does not transform, but seems to focus on sculpt detail and articulation more. Unfortunately the provided photos don't represent the scale of the figure well, so it's unclear at this point whether Brawl will be appropriately large. You can check out the mirrored images below.
From Mastermind Creations, Collisus joins the Reformatted line. Standing about 8 inches in robot mode, Collisus features a unique paint application and is able to transform into a battle tank vehicle. This figure comes armed with a pair of cannon blasters that can be deployed in both robot and vehicle mode. The figure slated for release in April of 2019 for about $110 USD.
Zeta Toys still has a bit to offer us today. Direct from their Weibo we have two images of Armageddon, their unofficial Bruticus shown as a color testshot. The individual components are all represented in their respective colors, though the add-ons for the combined form look like they may still be works in progress - at least lacking some finishing paint details if not other color changes. The images themselves say that this is not necessarily a final deco for the assembled whole, but it certainly gets the idea across! Check out both photos mirrored below.
