    But that Bike looks nothing like the bike that was shown a few days ago.

    To be honest, something this weak has no place in the new 3rd party market. Maybe if this was announced before Bruticus but now....I dunno...tooooooo simple.

    Afterburner there doesn't look anything like whatever PE's doing, so this isn't that.

    Right now, I'm just inclined to believe this is just fanart (or if anything, a teaser image), rather than any proper indication of everything. It's rather crude, and doesn't look like design work at all.

    The post that has it says its from a fan's design. Its very vague. The post also said something to the effect of "it might be realized or not".

    So it could be a fan's hope of a design, but will it get implemented? The post doesn't give muhc.

    Wasn't done posting pics. This is CGI, final product would look better, and more detailed I'm sure. I hope.

    Please 3rd party Transformers gods. If you are listening. Do this one for Fabexmax and all the other nerds out there who thought Computron was the best gestalt! Please.

    This still looks like fanart to me.

    If they're trying to get this produced physically, it needs a lot of work...

    I was just thinking that. That once this sees plastic it may look different.

    It still leaves the question, what is that bike PE showed.

    Right now it only looks like a CGI model that MIGHT work as a toy, rather than a toy model depicted in CGI.

    Kinda diggin' the simplicity. If the articulation is modern, I love a more retro blocky look. Sweet!

    Just a heads up from knowing a lil tiny bit about how these 3rd party things get designed and fabricated. :D  MOST, of the stuff that we end up buying from 3rd party starts like this. Hell I have pics of figures that people salivate over in their planning phases that started out as stick figures with rectangles and squares on them, then early cgi, to this level of cgi, to resin, etc.

    Still not saying its official, but I really really REALLY want this one to be the real deal.

    Not lovin' the color scheme on that- needs more gold and white on the torso and right leg to help balance that blast of red. It seems to be a fairly simple design- certainly not impossible. But I'm not as impressed as I am with FP Bruticus or Hercules.

    Intriguing. I vaguely remember having Afterburner as a toy as a kid, but I was never much a Technobot or Computron fan.

    That said..... pen*s mobile. XD

    Tis a good time to be a TF fan!

    fab, are there any evidence of it being more than just fanart? From reading those posts, it really seems like just fan art. Not to mention the discussions were centered around Giant and Hercules.

    Too slavishly G1. I don't even know where that would go. For art it's cool, but not as a toy.
