Get Ocular Max Terraegis at TFSource


Mastermind Creations continue their Ocular Max Perfection Series of Masterpiece gap-busters with PS-05 Terraegis, one of the original heroic 1984 Ark crew yet to get an official release.

Get FansToys FT-18 Lupus at TFSource


Why on Earth are FansToys doing Headmasters? Can’t they finish the Iron Dibots, or Car Robots, or the many products they’ve teased before throwing their hat into yet another sub-category ring to compete with other 3rd party companies? They’ve done it, though, and they’ve gone up against some of the best quality opposition there is …

BadCube OTS-11 Speedbump

BadCube OTS-11 Speedbump

BadCube Speedbump at TFSource


BadCube have taken strides. Since flaky beginnings with Huff, they’ve produced what many would consider the definitive egotistical yellow Lamborghini Countach brother at Masterpiece scale, but the complex nature of the figure affected some collectors’ appreciation of Sunsurge.

Ocular Max Backdraft available at TFSource


Ocular Max have had a very successful start to life as a Mastermind Creations sub-brand. The Masterpiece-style Perfection Series and the Remix line have been well received with figures PS-01 Sphinx and RMX-01 Jaguar taking plaudits for quality, design and aesthetics. While not everyone agrees with the apparent melding of cartoon, toy and Studio Ox vision that Ocular …

Unique Toys Sworder available at TFSource


Unique Toys and their alter ego DX9 are developing a solid reputation for getting triplechanging transforming characters right for the most part. While they don’t always nail all modes, chances are you’ll get a very high quality, enjoyable figure which displays beautifully in at least 2 modes out of 3. Their …
