    After seeing how nice and bulky their insecticons turned out, I really think they would do an amazing job with the dinobots. I think the insecticons were a bit too large and chunky for G1 accuracy, but the dinobots would look incredible with that type of build.

    OR....(and hear me out on this one),
    they could let TFC and Igear stick to the dinobots they've already announced, and maybe FP could make something which is not being done in duplicate already...?

    You're crazy dude. Every Transformers character needs multiple third party companies doing them.

    I'd be a miserable man if there weren't two Devastators and a bunch of G1 Devastator add-ons!!!

    look for Dawgstar's MP Slag and Swoop in the customs. but for mass production, they should make MP dinobots.

    i disagree homeboy.
    two is plenty, given the incredibly slow rate of releases...Ill take two companies doing dinobots, and let FP devote their resources elsewhere.
    ...in my perfect world.

    perhaps it was lost in translation, as its a legitimate argument from a lot of people, including me to a degree. I appreciate the fact that i had dev choices, and ive recently voiced hope that i see 4th party add-ons for Giant.
    but i'd prefer to keep FP on reserve for some other ish.

    If it was lost, I wouldn't have seen it.

    Anyways, on topic:

    Nah, I wouldn't want FP doing Dinobots. With two anounced, and especially one being IGear who's MPs are fucking fantastic, I'd like FP to just stick to whatever their upcoming projects are.

    MPs don't have that cartoony/anime aesthetic that classics do, and FP takes to the extreme. If a company's gonna' do MPs, I want them to... well, mesh with my MPs.

    So... lemme' get this straight, lol:

    1.) You "went in" on a post that was blatantly made as a joke.

    2.) I simply (and politely) said that it was sarcasm.

    3.) You get "butt hurt" and refer to me seeing what looks like a smile on one of the Giant pics (which other posters saw as well: check the thread), as if that makes the initial remark which you misread any less sarcastic.

    Pardon me for ignoring your future responses sir: I'm not taking you too seriously atm. :) 

    I went ahead and bolded the on-topic part of my last post, for conversational reference to anyone that is interested.

    ^ I agree with TJ. FansProject has already firmly entrenched themselves in the Classic-verse, and that's where they need to stay IMO.

    That's a very good way of putting it, and it's kind of unfortunate... I mean, it's good for the fans, because, I for one: love their product, but have become so accustomed to that particular style that I feel comfortable in "knowing what to expect" from them, whereas a company like IGear, I have a lot less expecation for because they've released and previewed so many diverse size classes and aesthetics.

    Let iGear and that other group (the name escapes me) handle the MP's. It's an unintentionally symbiotic relationship. Each 3P group is already focusing on a niche. It makes more sense for each group to focus on a particular area of interest within the fandom. That way, the market isn't saturated with the same fucking offerings again and again. In other words, I kind of like it that no one else has focused on the Insecticons since FP handled those rather nicely. It's sort of the same reason that I like how iGear is almost exclusively taking care of Ironhide/Ratchet. It keeps things nice and fresh.
