    If fansproject or something were to ever make a toy of the TFW2005 robot what would you want it to be like? Any one?

    Um, isn't the TFW2005 robot logo thingy just a version of Optimus Prime?

    The face of the TFW2005 bot looks like Optimus Prime, but it really isn't Optimus Prime. The bot turns into a boom box. Here's the link to a picture of the TFW bot as drawn by Matt Moylan: TFW02-Boombox - TFW2005 Exclusive Lil Formers - TFW2005.COM


    If there's ever going to be a TFW2005 Bot figure, I can imagine one of the Radicons might make a custom figure. But I highly doubt that Fansproject or anyone else would make such a figure for the masses.

    His helm is similarly shaped to Optimus's and he wears a facemask too but they are different.

    Boombox (as seen here: Boombox - TFW2005.COM) would be a great thing to see... There *was* a Radicons/Sculpt-bot/Reprolabels project in the works a few years ago, but somewhere along the lines it petered out... It was to turn a TFTM "Real Gear" PowerUp VT6 into our mascot...

    I know they wouldn't make one, just a cool thought though.

    This is just a thought, but why does the concept art for a TFW.com mascot transformer have a Seibertron.com watermark on it?

    Looks cool though, and I'd buy one if such a thing were to ever be semi-mass produced.

    The source image was taken from Seibs' gallery for Powerup VT6.

    Honestly, if this was done as a fundraiser or TFW2K5 member exclusive (a la TFCC or BotCon exclusives) I'd be all on it like Grandmaster Flash on 2 turntables.

    But i really hope the figure could be spot-on like the BoomBox art.
    he looks tough.

    now...how hard would it be to make the digital display on his shield work?
    that would be sickeningly sick.

    One last idea....he's supposed to be a CD player. but i can live with him being a working MP3 player.
    sorry. geekgasms lead to fantasizing.

    I loves me some TFW. I would totally buy a Fansproject Boombox figure.

    That is actually really a good idea. But, proceeds should go to toys for tots or some charity :)

    Ha, this whole time I just assumed the robot head on this website was Prime too.

    I'd probably buy the TFW-Bot toy as well. That would be fun.
