Xtransbots X1 Glider / Air Warrior Pictorial Review

Our very own El Duque has received his Xtransbots X1 Glider/Air Warrior and decided to share the following review:

I got my Xtransbots X1 Glider/Air Warrior yesterday and decided to take a few pictures for those who might be interested. First let's establish what this is. There's quite a bit of confusion about this guy because there are two third-party companies that have upsized and revised the JazaiToys Wheelie and Powerglide molds, Xtransbots (a CHMS project) and Superalloy. The Xtransbots figures are all plastic whereas the Superalloy figures feature diecast. From what I understand the Superalloy Powerglide is currently in production and should be available in the near future.

Onward to Glider! I'm not much of a packaging guy, but this is actually pretty nice. It's display minded for you MISB guys, made of decent quality cardboard, and features nice art. As you can see the front flap opens to reveal the figure in alt mode and features a hook and loop closure. Glider is secured in a clear plastic tray with a couple of twist-ties. The back teases their upcoming Galvatron homage, Tyrant. He comes with a small instruction sheet naturally, however you'll be working backwards since they take you from robot to alt mode. The instructions show a step were the face would be concealed in alt mode, but apparently that was scrapped. You also get a card that has his bio and specs.

As previously stated this is basically a knock off of the JazaiToys Powerglide. It's been upsized to roughly Deluxe class and ball joints have been added to improve articulation. He comes with three weapons, two hand guns and a knife. You can store one of the weapons in his chest cavity if you wish. He's spot on in both modes and displays well with the other Classics universe Minibots that have been upsized to Deluxe. He has decent articulation and stands easily thanks to his large flat feet. He's not without his flaws though, his arm joints are a little loose as are the rotational joints for his wings. He can still easily hold poses though, and if you really want to stiffen them up a quick coat of super glue will do the trick. The plastic quality could be a little better, my figure has a few stress marks from assembly, but nothing feels like it's going to break. Overall I'm happy with him, and he looks good on my Classics shelf.

The figure and his white repaint can be purchased at site sponsor Robotkingdom.

Articulation:

Head - rotates 360
Shoulders - ball joint
Elbows - ball joint
Hips - ball joint
Knees - hinge, plus 360 rotation
Ankles - ball joint

A review of the CHMS Xtransbots Glider has been posted YouKu, the Chinese equivalent of YouTube. Naturally the reviewer is speaking in Chinese, but we still get a nice look at the figure. This is an upsized and revised version of the JazaiToys Powerglide, not to be confused with the yet to be released SuperAlloy Powerglide Warrior, which is also an upsized version of JazaiToys Powerglide featuring a healthy dose of diecast.

Third-party toy maker iGear has listed pre-orders for PP03 Destroyer, PP03 Traitor, and PP03 Lightning. These are iGear's unofficial versions of Skywarp, Starscream, and Thundercracker respectively using their modified knock-off Masterpiece Seeker mold. Each figure features a more cartoon accurate deco and a modification to the legs that integrates the hip kibble that is present on the official Masterpiece Seeker mold onto the lower legs.

Seibertron.com News Crew member El Duque has found some new information on a possible KO, or third party recreation of Transformers Autobot mega cityformer Fortress Maximus. Heres the information he had to share:

"An interesting auction has surfaced on TaoBao that hints at a possible third-party version of Fortress Maximus, or perhaps the rumored KO. The auction is labeled G-02 Titan and as you can see the silhouetted image mirrored below (which is actually based on an official image) is almost certainly supposed to be Fort Max.

Description courtesy of Google Translate:

Earth version of the giant Ford G-02 Titan (Titans) scheduled

G1 Japanese version uses giant Ford mold making, material color and size reduction ratio of 100% realistic
No official stamp, in addition to a large sword that contains all the accessories other than the new sticker
Quality is not to say, I bought here, great sword friend Earth version of the idea in mind

This product will be available first quarter 2012

Offer Price: 2450 yuan

Deposit: $ 50

Scheduled to have a good price ~!

Powerglide's agent must be working overtime! It appears yet another third-party/KO version of the G1 mini-bot is in the works. In addition to Maketoys, iGear, and X Transbots, it looks as though well known KO producer CHMS is also throwing their hat in the ring. The image mirrored below is from their weibo micro-blog, and as you can see it looks strikingly similar to Jizai Toys Powerglide.
