    Has anyone heard of any repaints for the protector armor In blue to match The TFCC Sideburn figure. I just can't bring myself to spend 100 dollars for a clear version of the armor to kitbash into a suit of armor for Sideburn. :gen069:

    wish I was mate would be cool as hell. I am getting geared up for a transformers RPG It would be nice to use Sideburn as the next in line of the primes for this setting. =) :thumbs2:

    i thought the crystal armour was the last.

    considering how slowly it's been selling, i doubt we'll see a blue repaint.

    but here's to hoping! :)

    I'd love to see a blue repaint. The mold is too beautiful NOT to do this recolour. I'd love to see it officially than with the rumoured KO of the Protector armor, which -- like the Commander armor -- will doubtless be recast into all colours for the mold, like the Shattered Glass and clear versions.

    Once that happens, the possibility of getting the real thing evaporates too.

    I was told that a story needed to be done first before it would be considered.

    C'mon people, start writing the fiction!

    While I love club Sideburn and the Protector armor, this repaint doesn't make sense for me.

    It's Sideburn. Battle armor just doesn't fit the character

    Rodimus' armor was slow to sell, but with all things FansProject, it will eventually sell out and be worth it's weight in gold. :) 

    I was kinda hoping for a clear armor for the eHobby clear blue Rodimus. Since that is suppose to be Hot Rod when he is becoming Rodimus, it would make sense. Not too many people have that figure, but not many people had the Dark version either, and they still made an armor for that.

    So, who knows?

    But blue armor for sideburn? No. I can't see it.

    Well, for me he is just Blue Rodimus, so I wouldnt mind an armor. I can understand where you are coming from, but for me, the more armor sets the better. Hell, I wouldn't mind one for the BiS version and the ehobby version. I'd buy em all.

    I agree. I didnt buy him for the Sideburns character, I just bought a cool figure in blue. That blue armor mockup somebody did would be amazing to have as a figure.

    If they make it, I will buy it. I think that it would look great to have Rodimus in the red armor next to Sideburn in the blue armor looking like fire and ice.

    I don't have any of the previous Protector armors, but I've been planning to buy the blue one if/when it comes out.

    I am also hopping for a blue version as I got a Sideburn just for that purpose. Would look great in blue and a different gun to go with the color scheme.

    Only rumor I've ever head of it came from my response to peaugh's review of TFCC sideburn.

    Seeing that KOToys is essentially defunct... I'm guessing this isn't going to happen.

    And yes.. bumping a dead thread FTW!

    I wouldn't want it to be the protector armor. I would want it to be a Blue Shadow Scythe armor. Or maybe a slight variation on it. So it would Shadow Scythe's enemy and equal.
