Skywarp and Mirage. Both popular Transformers characters feature comic book-like powers, however Mirage has been the only one to receive toyrepresentations of his 'Invisibility'. Skywarp fans rejoice, as Seibertron.com member and customizer frenzy_rumble has put Skywarp's Teleportation into our favorite plastic form. Using a special Knock Off Clear Classics Seeker, frenzy_rumble has transformed this no name seeker into a very dynamic Skywarp. All for your viewing pleasure, check out the pictures below!

An auction has been found on Yahoo Japan for Exclusive 3rd Party Custom Headmasters that are exclusive to Wonderfest. The heads are Lione, Shuffler and and Loafer. These 3rd party customs have been updated from their original G1 versions. See the auction here.
A seller on iOffer.com has listed a brand new MISB Reissue Computron Giftset. The pictures on the auction look to be an old box. The description says that the seller has one new in box. This set hasn't been officially reissued, so it's safe to assume that another knock off of a G1 figure is being made. These knock offs aren't produced by Takara-Tomy or Hasbro. The quality usually isn't on par with an official reissue. Buyer beware when looking for a vintage Computron.
We received information from iGear about a new 3rd Party Custom Arcee figure. This is not the Impossible Toys version. It is unknown at this time who is making this figure. This figure contains die-cast parts and is packaged in a G1 Style box. Click here to view the preorder and all of the images.
Seibertron.com member HighPrime has received his Golden and Silver Faith Leaders (KO Masterpiece Optimus Primes) and posted a review.
A few images are included at the bottom of the article.
"For the record, I have every MP figure released by Takara Tomy to date. This is my justification for picking up the KOs
$260.00 For Silver Faith Leader + shipping
$300.00 For Gold Faith Leader + shipping
Figures are shipped in a plain white box with a little gold or silver sticker indicating PP01 gold or silver exclusive. Annoyingly, the number of figure you purchased is markered right on the front. Fortunately, it can be removed (for the most part) with a little goo gone without ruining the finish of the package. My silver one is #10 of 50. Gold is #7 of 50. Inner clam shell packaging is the same as all PP-01x releases to date.
Optimus Prime, of course, (or 'Faith leader, as it were...) Extra hands and extra 'Prime Gun are not included, but Megatron in gun mode, Anime OP head on mount, and Energon Axe, and instructions (PP-01c's actually) are still included.
WHAT ELSE IS INCLUDED
XL T-Shirt (Gold or Silver lining)
x2 Autobot Symbols (Gold or Silver lining)
x2 Stickers for Prime's Communicators on both arms (2 different ones depending on the version)
Numbered collector's Card in Gold of Silver.
VIP membership at iGear's online store granting you a lifetime 10% discount (not including exclusives)
FUTURE KNOCK-OFF PLANS?
While on the stickers, if these are any indication, additional KOs iGear will be working on are:
G1 Alpha Trion
G1 Ultra Magnus
I'm very surprised at the level of quality. I handled these figures with leather gloves as to prevent damaging the finish, however, not a single fleck of paint came off the entire time. At first, I handled them with extreme care. By mid-transformation, I was practically treating them like any other transformer (with care, but not so much that I'm afraid it would break). For the most part, joints are tight. The Grill of the cab had a tendency to flop down. You can play around with it to get it to stay in place, though.
The paint finish seems to be of varying application styles. Some of it as sort of an 'unsanded primer' texture. Other parts are mirror finish (i.e., windows). The design works for me. May be questionable to others expecting a mostly mirrored finish. Application of paint (more so on the gold) is somewhat inconsistent, particularly around the edges of part housings. Other parts look 'burned.' Keep in mind these are KOs, though. I can't expect lucky draw finish on an item that is 1/4 cost of many lucky draws. In no way is that a defense, just an observation. Even still, these aren't cheap. Rounding up comments on the finish, it's relatively thick. Previously tight tolerances are even more so. Keep that in mind when transforming.
TRANSFORMATION RECOMMENDATIONS TO PREVENT CHIPPING
Take the head off. No one will see it anyway in cab mode and you'll save the ears from chipping.
When flipping the head plate over and inter the chest, press up from underneath in the front, and from on top in the rear. This will prevent stressing the plastic near the top front of the cab Windows.
Use a vinyl card to flip up the tab that allows the fists to retreat into the arms.
Use a vinyl card to flip out the matrix.
Other then above, you should not experience any problems getting these guys into cab mode as long as some level of care is observed.
Dropping this kind of cash, especially for a KO, is not for everyone. There are a few of us crazy enough to do so, though. Overall, I'm satisfied with these 2. A bit disappointed in some of the paint application, but not bitterly so. Unless you're dying to have these guys, you can pass.
Between the Gold (Lagoon Prime) the Silver (Heat resistant Alloy Prime), The silver has the better finish and look. Plus, it's cheaper. However, if you have cash burning a hole in your pocket, go for both. Last check, there's 38/50 left of Silver and 37/50 left of Gold.
If you continue to frequent iGear, the 10% discount on future purchases will come in handy, too.
