    The dialog is pretty painful. But I guess OF YOU is not dead. Not really sure what to think of the Steel/Corer relationship though. Like I know its cool the little guy has a big suit guy who is also his ride, but for what purpose?

    Yeah, the writing ain't FPJ strong point. I look at Steel and Care as two halves of one whole. Like one spark shared between them.

    Currently sold out, and it was only available at fansprojectcore.com. No word on a second release or repaints.

    I could be waaaaaaaaay off base but I think that is similar, or an homage, to the how Headmasters, or MasterForce differed in Japan from America. See in the Japanese incarnation, the Headmasters, the smaller robots were not the human-like Nebulans in exosuits - but in the actual robots themselves. The vehicles that we saw - those were piloted mechas, like Gundams or Veritech Valkyries. In other words the real Brainstorm, Highbrow, and Chrome Dome - were the smaller robots themselves with there being no Arcana, Gort, and Stylor - if I got it right.....

    I wonder if those smaller robots are the ones that hire Warbot Defender's team to protect them that they mentioned in his trial? That clone seemed to recognize who Steel was - I hope FP does a comic I'm kind of intrigued about FP's universe. I hope the Causality line factors into the over story..

    Mine was order number 755, and it still says "Pending" on their website, so it may be a while before I get mine. I couldn't really afford it in the first few days, so I didn't bother trying, but then I had a little extra cash one day and ordered it. I didn't realise they were quite that close to selling out, so I was pretty lucky, I'd say.

    As for the bright blue, or, you know, "Allspark Blue" (bad memories, I know), I actually REALLY like it and the contrast it creates. Funny, because usually I HATE that colour. I'm pleasantly surprised with his colour scheme, since I originally thought they'd probably just go for a red/orange/gray colour scheme (which would have been nice, but this is even better, I reckon).

    It seems that two repaints in those two colors would make for good Armada and Energon Overload homages.


    It has been posted (I believe it was Venksta, but not positive) that if anyone who missed out on the initial batch would still want to purchase one of these, they should contact FansProject and let them know of their desire to buy one so it shows them the demand is there for batch #2 to be pushed through ASAP. Whether that turns out to be a repaint (or two), who knows...


    Yeah, I have to admit that the two different shades of blue on Steel and Core are not my favorite aspect on this figure. I would have prefered that the blue on the little guy matched the blue on the big guy.

    I hope it's okay to report this comic in the 3rd party comics/instructions thread. I just did it.

    Huh? Looks like someone waiting on his order to be filled from FP so he can sell it on.

    There better be some upgrades/weapons to go with core swaps. SteelFunk?

    I like the contrast too.

    I will only accept bacon as payment.

    You keep asking these questions, but it's YOUR money. The reviews can only give you pix and info , but the value judgment is yours, so why don't YOU DECIDE?
