    Ok these guys are nice for sure. I'd totally forgotten about them.
    I just hope they use the good plastic and not the cheapo plastic.

    HOLY SHIT, I was iffy b/c the cgi made their proportions look wierd but these are an instant buy for me, getting closer to having a full wreckers team.

    Yeah, I mentioned that in the first post but it may have gotten lost amid all the photos.

    I was only reminded of these a couple of weeks ago when I stumbled across the pictures again ; Otherwise I'd mostly forgotten them.

    If they are not insanely expensive they look like they are worth a punt - some NOT-Duo-Cons might be nice some time too.

    I'd have liked to see the drills on Not-Twintwist be able to make a drill hammer weapon and also to fit on his wrists as wrist drills. and perhaps store on his back.

    I'd also have like to see the drills have two parts so the drills in vehicle mode can be much bigger but the part that extends them would also double as rocket nozzles.

    The main issue is the drills are well scaled for robot mode but far to small for the vehicle mode.

    Slightly larger wings on Topspin and slightly bigger drills on Twin twist would be the icing on the cake but they are both still very nice and if the price is right i'll buy them. They look like they'd fit in well with the sort of stuff I like.

    Congratulations on your 1000th video, Peaugh! Let me just say that before I buy any Transformers Prime figure, I first visit your YouTube channel and listen to what you have to say about the toy.

    I'll be looking forward to congratulate you again on your 2000th video! :thumb

    awesome review! as always
    these guys look really really awesome, they're perfect!! can't wait for them!
    There's only one detail I can mention although it does not bug me all that much, that being the fact that topspin's wings should move along with his arms but still, as I said, it isn't a big deal at all.

    Wow, these are further along than I thought!

    Well, here's looking forward to a preorder for these guys, as I'll quite happily add these two to my Wreckers

    Great review, peaugh. I just noticed that Geminus's cockpit windows aren't painted like Apex's. So whenever I get Geminus I'll paint those cockpit windows so that my OCD-like mind can rest easy.
