    I dig it. Steelcore is still a fun mold. The original trailer kind of sucked, so I hope they either (a) make it optional or (b) change it up. Here's hoping sometime soon FPJ has the wherewithal to toss some brand new molds at us *couch* Function X *cough*

    I am a big Steelcore fan, but no way I am supporting these money grabs. Had they released Snapdragon/Apeface first, I would jump into this with both feet, but I'll just wait till this gets into clearance.

    What are they doing? Playing FP's Greatest Hits? They are FP, not the Beatles.

    I'm reserving final thought until we get a full picture and price of this guy. You never know FP could be turning it around, and their Steelcore is their best mold, its just that these cash grabs are coming when the Iron has frozen over and now has cobwebs on them.

    Finally! I'm in for this. Hopefully it has some new accessories to sweeten the pot.

    Great to see Fansproject coming back into the game... albeit slowly.
    Would be keener on new moulds instead of redecos.
    They'll have to review their pricing strategy as well... gone are the days of just a handful of third party companies... there's a lot of options available there days to the collector and pricing stuff like 5 years or more ago won't cut it.

    I’d love to get this. Never picked up Steelcore before, but it looked like a pretty solid mold.

    You're a Transformers collector and the first repaint of something is a "cash grab"?
    Starscream has some oceanfront property in Mongolia he would like to sell you, after you buy Thundercracker and Skywarp and Thrust and Dirge and Ramjet and Sunstorm and....

    My assumption is they are trying to raise money to pay for finishing the Headmaster molds (since you asked "what are they doing?").

    I’m sorry she slipped your mind, but I think you meant~
    Iron Factory Shrike's Feather (Slipstream)

    Maybe a new deco will really sell this guy, since I do love minicons & the like. And, that rifle into an ice pick seemed cool. But, the blue and grey just didn’t do much for me.

    Cool. I sort of want one of these, but all the ones I've found have been way too pricey, plus the colour scheme didn't really do it for me.

    One of their best molds and IIRC the first “non-cannon” 3P design to get shine

    Plus i like how it looked w/ trailer

    Where is the damn rifle add on?

    Considering how overstocked Steelcore was for several years, they'll probably have to do a much smaller run of this if they want to avoid that, especially given how dated this is now and thus a much smaller market demand.
