Word reaches us from our sponsors this evening in regards to an upcoming third party product. Mech Ideas' Demolition Crue Geminus (Aka Twin Twist) will be coming with an extra, bonus head. This head features battle damage to represent Twin Twist's torture scene from IDW's Last Stand of The Wreckers.

This figure and his twin, Apex, will be available in March and can be preordered from various TFW2005 sponsors. Lock in your preorders at Captured Prey, BBTS, and TFSource

I saw this pop up on the page and tried to ninja you but couldn't find the old thread. lol

Let's get this straight, MI shows up with two fun figures at an awesome price and then once everything is said and done ADDS a new head for no reason at all other than rocking?

MI (and by association MMC) you guys are knocking my socks off, keep up the fan service and the fans will keep throwing money at you.

P.S. another new discovery about these guys. The hammer breaks down to become a wrist gun. These guys just don't quit.

I was this close || to cancelling my BBTS preorder and jumping over to CP to nab this bonus, then Sidecutter tells us it's from everyone. You couldn't close the sale, Gill!

You smite a person for being honest? But you would give him your money for a lie?


Sidecutter your honestly is well recieved. It is a sign of who you are as a person and business man and one of the many reasons people buy from Captured Prey.

I've no interest in encouraging anyone to stream copyrighted material online but if you have another way to watch a clip from an episode of the Simpsons, salient to understanding my previous comment is "Lisa gets an A", 16:35 to 17:19, specifically the bit at 17:12.

Brilliant.

Score! Go MI! Go MI!

That's fucking great. What a neat throw-in.

Now someone needs to make a damn Classics Stalker.

Yeah just got the same email from BBTS: Hi - Mastermind Creations has just informed us that, as a special bonus only for customers who pre-order, this set will include a second, battle-damaged head for Geminus, inspired by the Last Stand of the Wreckers. Thanks again for your order!
dominusveritas
Bad. Ass.

yeah got email from bbts saying as much. their email says MMC is giving the bonus. Not sure if its mistake or this confirms what we already suspected which is MMC is working with MI.

I just got the same e-mail.

Wow! Considering the price of most 3rd party figures this set was already a great value. Mech Ideas is impressing me by making it even better.
Motor_Master
That's a nice little bonus. I was already happy with my pre-order, now even more so!

No confirmation needed, MMC was open about their connection to MI. MI is a designer buddy of theirs going out on his own with MMC's full support. They are even doing character crossovers for their comics. I think that means that the MMC characters and the MI characters exist in the same universe.

Mech Ideas is a separate designer/investor, with MMC acting as the manufacturer and distributor.
eriku
Very cool idea, and a nice bonus.
That said, anyone want mine?

Stick that head on a Cliffjumper body and you'd have a decent zombie Terrorcon.

Yes, I just got this in my email from BBTS...

I knew Mastermind Creations was helping Mech Ideas, but they are making the figures?

Not knowing anything about the head I really don't care about it but it's still a great add on for those that want it.

Mech Ideas are 2 for 2 (if you count this Demolition Crue set as 1 and the Long Blast Upgrade kit and the other 1 WS-01 Long Blast Upgrade Kit - Third Party Transforming Toys & Accessories Mech Ideas). The tortured head looks like that had to hurt! Happy to have both on pre-order.

Are you referring to the Endoscopic Claw?
ORIO
One of the best moments in LSOTW.

Horror on a Transformers level.

I kinda hope that Botcon makes a Stalker from the Cybertron Defense Red Alert mold this year. Seems probable if they do a Soundwave (whom they've teased).
DJW107PRIME
Aw that's clever but makes me sad, cool nonetheless. They should do the same thing with outback and swerve over at Igear.

Naw, he's referring to the fact that two of my exclusives have been "evil" swords - Annexus and the Broken Blade.
Timesynch
Neat. Need some torture tables/gurneys now to make that LSOTW scene complete. Oh, and Impactor and Stalker figures too, I guess. XD

So, it's meant as a reference to this image?

Timesynch
^ Yup. That's the one.
Transbot90210
Holy shit what happened to Topspin?

I really need to get the TSOTW trade paperback.

Transbot - you haven't read LSOTW!?!?!?!? That is a must read my friend, a must read!

I know, as a testiment to the series, I am a fan of the Wreckers just by reading what you all think of them. (I am all in on any Wrecker made even though it breaks my "on screen characters only" rule)

I bought these guys and I too am waiting on Impactor and I have no clue who he is or what he is all about. lol

I have decided to pick up the trade and it excites me because I have no doubt that it will live up to my extremely high expectations.

Make sure you get the more recent hardback version, rather than the original paperback. The new version's got insane amounts of bonus content in it.

And dear god does that torture scene still disturb me.
