They seem to fit on the G1 Protectobots...
I did a little digging to see what these are. Seems they are heads and accessories for the TFclub Star Cats toy to make it look more like Defensor! Not sure if they are an add-on or these will be the heads the Defensor redeco will ship with, but it looks good. I attached the latest prototype photo of Star Cats in this post, as well as the old Hot Spot toy and head concept art we saw already.
Remember this thread from ages gone by?

EDIT: you're right ^___^
So, wait. JBStudios is making an upgrade for a TFC project that's yet to be released?
^You sound surprised.
They should do this for Hercules. That would really kick my wallet's ass.
I am. Seems strange for a company to be facilitating a project where the base model is most likely not in their hands yet.
I could've sworn this was becoming the norm in recent months.
I suppose TFC Hercules is probably not the best example as the components were being released at different times, which allowed people an early sample of what was to come, but I seem to remember seeing teasers for a forearm upgrade (via Shapeways) back when Exgraver was the only one released. I guess with the constant flow of teasers, new developers springing out of the woodwork seemingly every day, and upgrades being stacked on top of other upgrades, I've sort of become desensitized by it all.
Junkion Blacksmith is affiliated with TFC, if not a subgroup, IIRC.
I thought they were the same thing... good to know then
They are probably involved with the prototyping.
I like the sketch Defensor head better than the rendered head...the later seems more plain
Yeah, but even then, most of the Hercules stuff came out after he was released. Teh shapeways forearms you mentioned make sense too as Exgraver was released first. I don't recall seeing any upgrades for figures BEFORE they're released.
Ok, THAT makes sense. thanks
Oh well. I guess you're right and I'm wrong.
Wasn't trying to prove anything. Was just confused
(That happens to me a lot)
I just hope this means we may actually be able to lay hands on Star-Q Defensor!
