For our next gallery update, we would like to draw your attention to some extensive galleries of the Mech ideas Demoltion Crue – Apex and Geminus, unofficial and unlicensed versions of Generation 1 Topspin and Twin Twist.
Mech ideas are a relative newcomer on the third party scene, but their first full figure releases set the bar plenty high. Apex and Geminus share a basic body type, varying up the molding on the legs, shoulders, head and backpack to produce their unique robot and alternate modes. The designs are true to the original Jumpstarters, even if the alternate modes feel a little boxy. They are fantastic toys through and through though, with astonishing levels of poseability, excellent detail, and a good selection of accessories. There’s lots of nice little touches in the designs, such as the double-jointed elbows, which make these toys for me. Best of all, unlike a lot of third party releases, they are not overly expensive – you feel like you are getting value for money with the Demolition Crue.
Our galleries for this pair are now online, over 150 pictures for each toy – check them out by opening the links below:
