    Cool. I wouldn't mind getting ahold of one of a matrix when they're available. Also, if I had the money to shell out for it, I would definetly get the Magnus armor, and then buy a Classics Ultra Magnus to put it on. But as it is, there's no way I'm going to be able to afford the armor, and by the time I do, Ebay will pretty much be the only source of them.

    Nice!!! I've wanted a little Classics gun-mode Megatron for Starscream ever since the first wave of Classics came out. It's a little bigger than I might have liked, but that's fine... it looks so cute!

    Ultra Magnus and Powered Convoy (love that color scheme) look nice, but not as nice as in the last round of photos. The squared-off quality of the pieces still keeps it from looking quiiiite like an official product. And as I complained in a previous thread, I still think it's an inefficient use of mass. But I still have no regrets whatsoever ordering it, and the price was a bargain given the nature of the product.

    I wish that Cliffjumper set had been more widely (and cheaply) available. Or even available as just a head, without the other pieces. But it's just too expensive for what you get. Here's to hoping another quality fan-mod will show up someday, for a lower price.

    When you look up 'must-have' in the dictionary, there's a picture of mini classics/henkei megatron. :drool:

    I'm really wanting that Magnus armor, but I still don't think I can swing the $80 for it . . . and then they go and make a Powered Convoy set of armor . . . goodness, it's hard to stand this much awesome (especially with limited expendable cash :( ).

    I DO want to get the Alt gas tank/matrix-gun set though.

    As stated, these guys are really making some nice pieces. My hat's off to em :thumb 

    Now I just need a second job :lol

    These individuals know what the fans want, and they present it in such a way so that their products are irresistible.

    Justitoys is dead. Long live Fans Project, the new king of third-party TF upgrades.

    Venksta, any idea on the availability of the matrix and mini-megs'? Just Japan? Or for North America like the Magnus kit? Or Both?

    I love these guys. I want more stuff for my classics! I need a sword for Grimlock!

    Sorry, but nothing has been decided yet. It would be a tease to show it off at a north american convention, and then not release them over here. I'll let you guys know if I hear anything about the release.

    sweet, I've been waiting for a mini megatron classics style gun for my cons. I'm also glad I got the magnus armor preordered. Any estimate on how much the matrix and meg gun is gonna cost?

    Assuming they can get their prices similar to Justitoys, that is.
    Their work does look gorgeous; I seriously want that Alt matrix/rifle set. However, based on the prices for the Cliffjumper upgrade and the UM armour, I dread to think how much it'll be.

    Magnus is AWESOME!!!!! :bay 


    They didn't happen to say anything about making the Cliffjumper kit availible again, did they? There would deffinately be a demand for it considering the quality of the first.

    One more question Venksta, Will the Prime Matrix and mini-megs be a set? Or still too early to know?

    I am all over the Classics gun-mode Megs and that Matrix.

    Magnus is pure love.

    The Matrix looks weird. Is it being held at an angle? I wish there were pics of it alone without someone holding it.

    The Fans Project rep was extremely friendly and awesome to talk to. :D 

    -Ultra Magnus armour is FUCKING ENORMOUS. I feel my pre-order $$$ have been well-spent.
    -The Matrix was specifically designed to always face forward, because the Fans Project guys felt almost all matrix toys end up pointing an undynamic direction. Also, it'll come with a stand that lights up the centre crystal when its mounted there.
    -Classics Megatron gun was in both the US and Japanese colour schemes, and looked just fabulous.

    I can't say enough how nice the guy at the booth was. :D  The Magnus armour is really a sight to behold, too. So. BIG.
