Do you think we are getting any Christmas exlusives from FP this year?

    In the last two years we have gotten a Christmas exclusive from Fans Project. I was just wondering if you think we will get one again? Or do you think that they have a bad taste in their mouth from the whole TFSource fiasco from last year?

    What were the two exclusives before? Maybe we will get protector in blue.

    - Snowman Kit for Superion
    - Shadow Scythe

    So a blue Shadow Scythe would be a bit weak and repetitive as an exclusive. But could work since Sideburn was an exclusive.

    Shadow Scythe was preordered near Labor day weekend, and we are far past that. I am not sure about Superion kit's preorder. But if there is nothing at this point it seems unlikely.

    From my records, Superion's preorder went up November 9, 2009, and Scyther's perioder went up September 5, 2010.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a black repaint of the G3 trailer. I don't see much demand for a general release.

    If it was a repaint or minor retool of what they had done before, my choices would be:

    1. E-hobby Rodimus Protector, clear blue repaint + bonus weapon
    2. Sideburn Protector, retooled face and chest + bonus weapon
    3. Insecticon gift-set at Diaclone/Dlx colors with either head retool or diff. weapons.

    I hope they're done with the Protector armor personally. Yeah they can do blue and crystal blue, but we've got 3 versions already. I could see them doing Insecticon repaints maybe.

    We will never have enough Protector recolors until all my rodimi are Protected. Just want a few more with the Scyther face (would look sick in blue). If they did those and insecticon repaints, I would be broke in a hurry though.

    I feel that'd be a bad idea because Insecticon repaints painted like the original G1 deluxe versions are wanted among the Fandom. Having them be released in limited runs would be a nightmare.

    I could see them doing the Protector Armor to match TFCC Sideswipe. It makes sense to me, really. I also like the idea of releasing a Black G3 trailer to go along with SDCC Nemesis Prime. Yea Buddy!

    Shadow Scythe wasn't really a christmas item. The Snowman version of the Superion item was done for TFsource's christmas event, as were things like the Justitoys Santa Commander WST Grimlock.

    TFsource may have another christmas themed item this year, but it could come from any group, not just fansproject.

    Bought on sight.

    I was expecting this to come out earlier, but the G3 trailer has not sold that well initially (because people are stupid, that thing is fucking great)

    I didn't mean in G1-accurate colors, they're close enough to that already I think. I was thinking of the E-hobby colors, with the red on there.

    There was talk of a Warbot repaint at one point, but it seems unlikely now.
