    when most of us dont have the maketoy G2 prime in hand, when we only see the 1st issu of that trailer set,
    some Chinese Online-store (taobao only...yeah,taobao) just open a pre-order for their KO...

    KO FPJ

    they dont have pic for it, but it's from HAMA toys...also it say they will have the KO g2 prime...and purple FPJ City Commander for the Botcon Classic Optimus Prime....

    KO MT MAKETOYS G2

    love it or not? that's your problem. but it just happen.
    believe it or not? still your problem, it just show.

    and I`ll pass it anyway, and, oh by the way, there was a rumor about the FPJ CA-03~05, they will have KO in this Dec. so let see what's going on.

    or KO or org factory sell out the mod and use cheaper plastic to do a cheaper one? Let's wait a see this movie start.

    Oooooh a KO of that tanker would be a nice alternative for those who don't have the cash for the genuine one.

    Taobao is actually a Chinese online shopping site similar to eBay, practically it's equivalent in China, so yes take that with a grain of salt.

    The rumor is real, from what my FP friend told me. Some KO maker is planning KOs of the CA-03, 04, 05 and trying to pass them off as the real versions. They also started a rumor that FansProject was out of business, to try and get people to quickly place orders for their KOs.

    Purple City Commander would appeal to me. I've often been tempted with the thought of getting a City Commander KO to bash into a "Shattered Commander".

    A KO for 3rd Party releases? well I'll be. Hopefully the Battle Tanker set arriving for me in 3 weeks time will be the real deal. It's been slow in terms of new TF releases here for some unavoidable reason or the other.

    That rumor has been spreading quite a bit, I'd advise your friend to make a quick update to thier page just to say "Yeah mates we're still here!"

    If the KO's are cheap enough, I might buy it to commission for custom. Battle Tanker? Maybe buy it to custom as well.

    Meh, I'll believe it when I see it.
    Insecticons are brand new, and going to be hard to beat the $50 price tag while maintaining quality.
    Battle tanker has not even fully dropped yet,
    Shattered Commander has been rumored for over a year.

    I was talking with two friends. They translated from the KO makers blog or something that the reasoning behind the KOs is to battle the high cost of the original product's pricing! Lol.

    Also, found out the real source of the rumors about FP going out of business. My original rumor in warning thread was correct.

    I wonder if someone would bootleg some of the weapon sets
    Or at least make something similar.

    Or all the Targetmaster and other small robot designs they can find on Shapeways and just Mass produce them?

    I'm kind of surprised that's not happened yet.

    My first thought when I saw the new Bumper & Hubcap Heads and the Dr. Woo Missiles and gun set was did they simply copy Venkstas ?

    No solid proof yet if they are behind it. But I have a couple third party sources who say otherwise. What I can say is that one of iGear's members posted on their blog that Fansproject split up, and that one of the FP members went and started making these upcoming insecticon KOs, which would be the same quality as the real ones. Not sure why they feel that had to be informed to people that the upcoming KOs were being handled by an "ex" FP member. Its like their trying to make sales... :lol
