    It's been over a year since Warbot Defender was released and no repaint or 2nd release? Anybody know why this dude was never released again?

    Wow, just a year? It feels like it's been years since it's been released...

    In the little mini comic that comes with warbot, he confronts a different colored evil twin. It seemed logical to assume that eventually they will release it, but I'm not sure how much demand it would have.

    How about releasing him in Sandstorm colors? Not only would he look cool, they'd take advantage of the alt modes...

    If they got rid of the Diecast and manage to keep the price at a decent level, I'd have a feeling they would move stock. It's Fansproject, their shit is awesome!

    They may have dropped the WarBot subline entirely. Nothing has been seen of the Wreck-Gar and Broadside designs since.

    They've mentioned a new WB release on their website when they were announcing all their other projects.

    Oh I think that mold in military tans and browns would work fantastically.

    Seconded.

    Honestly, I think FP flubbed when they decided to make Springer's nemesis an evil twin. They had the perfect opportunity to introduce Blitzwing as his enemy, and thus give us the kickass Classics Blitzwing that Hasbro never gave us.

    Though neither alt mode fits perfectly, I'd love to see Defender released in Sandstorm colours. A new head would be needed though.

    I was wondering about this too... Munitioner and Explorer, AND their repaints Flameblast and Warcry were all released since Warbot Defender was released.
    Perhaps FansProject wasn't entirely happy with the Warbot mold or the quality? I know the waist was slightly vulnerable to breaking due to the way it locks together.

    Yeah I can see your point here. Warbot does suffer from some to little QC issues, I mean don't get me wrong it's a great figure and all, but like one member said, if they get rid of the diecast I think it would make the figure much more superior than what it is now.

    Who cares about the evil warbot repaint, just give me Blaster or Blitzwing now!

    The waist never bothered me so much as the feet did. The figure pretty much cannot stand on its own unless you do a lot of awkward positioning with his feet and legs.
