    My thoughts:

    They got SOooo lambasted for the previous projects so they're playing it real safe this time round. They might be testing the waters right now.

    Edit: Should combine my replies, my bad. :eek:

    interesting... based on the "parts included" sounds like it'll require painting... don't think the price is enough for me for an accessories kit for 1 figure.

    I'm thinking real FAR ahead: As in what other REPAINTS they will push out next. :lol 

    Afterall, there was the Bugbite Upgrade kit, BB Upgrade kit etc. right after his "Cliffjumper Upgrade." And then, there was this EXCLUSIVE Drift in Black.

    You do realize the Cliffjumper Upgrade set is a knockoff of FansProject's work? And they claim it as an official reissue. Whats even more sad is that these knockoffs are over double what FansProject charged, which was originally limited. Yet this bootlegger has no limit and is charging so much.

    Oh yeah, looks like half this kit is just going to be repro'd G1 parts? I wonder if the front bumper needs to be removed to be transformed into robot mode?

    Interesting, wonder if they'll use a recast of Energon Downshift's head for the kit?

    Yeah, I do know that. :( 

    Wished I didn't knew a thing about this but it keeps getting thrown into my face, unfortunately. :redface2: 

    You know I actually met up with him personally because he was throwing some accusation about me and a couple of guys on Singapore Sighting thread not respecting him/their products. (City Commander Head Upgrade Kit & DFT-01 Drift)

    The dude's telling me/us not to slam those that hard. And naysayers should try creating something of that scale just to have a feel about how difficult & painstaking it was before we're fit to cast the first stone but I told him that everyone's entitled to their own opinions & that I do not have to like the idea/product just because he birthed it.

    I'm seriously expecting him to drop me an "invit" after he'd read what was posted against his latest creation. :lol

    Looks pretty awful. Fairly sure that front piece for car mode will have to come off and it doesn't look like it's got anywhere to go in car mode. Not sure why the giant handgun is there. Bleh.

    So wait. Is the seller who you met up with? I thought there were like two main people. One guy actually designing/sculpting. And one guy casting, who is also the one KO'ing the FP CJ kits.
