New pics found at TFC
those images are sick! i love how the weapons attach to the smaller robots... so much creativity...
Those new images are making the wait that much harder!
And the Energon figures look pretty decent all armed up next to Munitioner and Explorer.
Ok, Superion is sooo gonna get PWND by Bruticus it's not even funny!!
And Fans Project FTW of the decade and it's on the 2nd month of the new decade.
Dear god. They just kicked the literal shit out of their Superion set. The weapons, the new shoulder range of motion, the two new molds, the hands, god the hands. The only flaw I don't think they could totally amend is the fact that the legs are too close together, but the ankle movement helps. I think I just wet my pants. Perfection.
Oh wait...it's not yellow...
dude i think i just creamed my pants just looking at that deep fried piece of toy gold
Now I just hope the release date doesn't get pushed back.
Oh and whats up with all the "ITS A KO, DON'T BUY IT, IT DOESN'T SUPPORT HASBRO TALK"?
Who gives a crap, Hasbro was never going to give us a real Bruticus, a real Ultra Magnus, a real Springer. This is what Hasbro Gave us
1. A toy named Bruticus without hands or feet
2. A toy named Springer that is really another mold
3. Painted Optimus Prime white and called him Ultra Magnus
Come on now! Stop the nonsense, just let it be. Nobody is going to undo their preorders because the Hater Cult of Transformer fans says so.
Except animated Ultra Magnus which is not only a fantastic toy but elevated his character.
They're doing a new Bruticus, for a fraction of the cost, will it be as cool, almost certainly not but Hasbro don't make toys for fans with money to throw around, they make toys for kids and the prices are aimed at them and their parents.
Springer, who knows, it's not like they've never surprised us before, personally I'm not keen on Fansprojects take on it, it's the weakest thing they've done so far so I hope that Hasbro will come up with a new springer one day soon and if it's on the same level as Voyager Inferno, Bludgeon and Seaspray then I'll be very happy with it.
These new pictures are very cool indeed, the madly huge weapons look a bit silly on the individual team members but I don't care, it'll be staying in Bruticus mode for most of the time.
Excellently said! Also of note is the fact that you need the original Hasbro product in order to make anything of these products. Granted you have complete Swindle- and Blast-Off-like figures, but you don't have a Bruticus without the original Hasbro release. Just like you don't have a real Ultra Magnus without the figure under the armour.
I have never understood why Hasbro haven't released armour for Ultra Magnus like they did with the G1 character. Sell a repainted Voyager Prime with a trailer/armour at the Leader price point. I'd buy it!
Omg....the pic where they are all equipped with their weapons....!!!!
as I! If hasbro made these products, we wouldn't need FP or anyone else for that matter because they would have satisfied us.
Thats true, except Animated Magnus came out after the fact if i'm not mistaken. Classics Magnus was released in 2006, while Animated Magnus was released in 2008. Besides, I think given the choice, Classics/Henkei collectors would rather have a "Classics" Version of magnus rather than a Animated version.
When was the original Magnus upgrade released by Fansproject anyway?
Precisely! It seems they went backwards with the Classics Magnus. For something that was meant to be a G1 update he's seriously lacking by not looking like Ultra Magnus (except for that one time in the Dreamwave comics that we won't talk about...).
2008, wasn't it?
Except that the mold wasn't designed to be Magnus, so it's pretty moot.
Hehe... the "Hasbro vs. FP" posts are so silly.
I support both.
Not Dreamwave, G1.
I was just as pissed/disappointed as anyone that we didn't get what FP eventually gave us, but it is wrong to say that "it's not Ultra Magnus" and/or "it's not G1". (You're by far not the only one, just the easiest one to reference.)
JESUS CHRIST that looks FUCKING AWESOME!
