    were they ever really alive?

    edit:
    not trolling, just really wondering if they ever did anything. Other than an early prototype of a head.

    I'd imagine dead, but it's possible they're still working on it. Making those five molds work as a combiner wouldn't be easy to say the least.

    I really hope it's just taking them so long because they're new at everything.

    I'm pretty sure this thing is dead. We would of heard something or seen some kind of a prototype. This topic pops up every few months and its pretty much concludes it died every time.

    Pretty much this all they ever did was a head and not even of their own design. G1 Uppers = Empty Promises.

    Given the $ that needed to be invested, Hasbro's crackdown and the fact that they were US based. I am thinking the project is on an indefinite hold.

    But who knows, maybe we will see something yet.

    I'd ask the same about fansproject. They posted one update on their website in january and before that the last post was in july 2011. Kind of weird how silent they've been.

    Really wanted those glacier bots and the heartmaster.

    Since we like to play conspiracy theories here, maybe these dudes just wanted to create hype to maximize profits for unloading their box sets. ;)

    Rather than drifting into oblivion, it would be nice for what was g1uppers to at least say things didn't work out and they won't be producing anything at this time
