    I'm all in. Screw fun pub and their subscription. I know I'll be getting my dollars worth with Fansprojects subscription.

    This really sounds great. I'm very happy to see they are essentially forming a team to handle fan interaction/interest. This is a really great step for the future of their company.

    Oh shit yes. They're doing their own story based comic figures. Influenced by us, the buyers of the figures. And we get a say so in what gets designed (for good and the bad). Subscription model too for VIP shit. Sort of like a funpub for Fansproject manufacturing and designing. But hopefully not awful.

    This is freaking awesome. Day one subscription buyer provided its not retarded etc.

    HOLY CRAP. This is awesome.

    Going out on a limb, too, and guessing that Steelcore is that first full-size figure they mention. Fits, considering we know they have packaging and final samples ready to go.

    EDIT: Heck, his name is SteelCORE. For FansProject CORE.

    Great news! I'm hoping they create enough characters and the figures sell well enough that they are able to produce a cartoon.

    This sounds interesting so I decided to sign up. Can anyone tell me what the crystals are, or has no information been given about them since I can't find anything on the site?

    On the brief description given its gonna be for 3 factions of robots who are at war with themselves or other beings. I think steelcore is part of the first faction, ninja bugs are the dark stealthy ones and maybe crystal is see through repaints? Really we know close to nothing.

    A little worried. What if TFC, MT, Igear, etc all come out with subscription services that each cost $40/year?

    Then they all get to be second best? Technically third if you want to go there.

    Their site has a system for earning crystals. Like some kind of economic system. Maybe like frequent buyer points or rewards for reviews or participation...

    I'm interested in seeing where this goes. It's kind of like a third party transformers collectors club. Win!

    Surprise.

    Their figures/freebie won't be influenced, or have the level of interaction FansProjeCore will provide. This has been worked on for a long time. Its not a simple setup anyone can pull or copy to pull a fast one on Fansproject. FP have been putting a lot of time and effort into creating something fun and unique for fans, and I don't see any of the other groups having the passion or dedication to pull something off that will be anywhere good as this. Basically, if its not CORE, its cheap KO. :D

    I wonder if this means that they're shying away from TF inspired figures or if they'll incorporate them into their universe as they have done the releases up to now? There's still that rumored Menasor we need!

    Wow, I bet Fun Pub is going to be absolutely pissed.

    I find it hilarious that FansProject offers an even better club, with better ideas, than the official Transformers club.

    Definitely in for this.

    I sure hope they make more TF inspired figures. When I say that, I mean based on characters from the TF universe. I love SteelCore's design, but hate the idea that he is a new character of sorts. I buy third party stuff for the homage that Hasbro/Takara cannot or will not fill.

    I think Venksta said that they will continue their TF based figures just in a different line not affiliated with core project? Hes here so maybe he can clarify.
