FansProject F(x) Toyline Megathread!

Alright- given how fragmented all the discussion has been getting, ESPECIALLY given we've now got two reveals at once, I figured we needed a one-stop shop for f(x) news that's easy to check.

And thus, this Megathread. My plan is to keep all of the information in one place here, and keep the first post updated with news, as I'm seeing a lot of repeated discussion in the X2 and X3 threads with people bringing up both figures interchangeably. Even though this isn't a combiner, it IS an entire related subline with a unified theme/gimmick/aesthetics where most of us are going to be buying all the figures, I imagine.

LATEST UPDATES:

Whoa, how on earth did I miss Weirdwolf's and Brainstorm's robot modes?

As long as you keep the first post update, this will be a very good thread. I'm a big fan of separate threads for each toy, but this can work as well

I'm speculating about the wolf head in bot mode. It seems like it tucks into the chest cavity! I can't see it peeking out the back from these front 3/4 shots(could just be hidden) but WOW if they were able to eliminate/hide it in bot mode!

If you look between the alt and bot modes you can see the chest faces down on the wolf mode and there is no hinge at the top of the wolf where the neck meets the body, sooo I'm really curious how it collapses.

Might be wishful thinking but after the fun and creative transformation on F/X Chromedome, I can't help but get excited.

Not mention the genious way the thighs are the waist of the wolf turned sideways!! Cool! Arggh! Can't wait to get this guy in hand.

Bot mode is super tough looking!

They JUST went up tonight, along with more Stunticon pics. Including prototypes of the other two Stunticons as well as final colors on the ones we've seen.

This is exactly why I made a Megathread in the first place - it's getting damn confusing to keep track of everything, so some organization's needed. And given I'm keeping up on these threads pretty closely, this way I can just link to pertinent posts/news stories in the first post so people can actually keep track of what's new at a glance.

(That, and make it easier for the mods to keep track of everything new too.)

Main reason I'm grouping them all is that I'm noticing a LOT of bleedover in conversation re: Weirdwolf/Brainstorm. Plus, this is a whole subline.

And my plan is indeed to keep the first post up to date.

Ok. Well before everyone gets too hyped, the rest should have wider distribution.

Resin protos can make almost anything look good....but robot modes do look promising .

Super innovative transformations on both these guys. Brainstorm's wings collapse entirely into his calves, by the looks of things.

Weirdwolf has all that crazyness going on with his legs, and the forepaws as hands is kinda interesting.

So true - though if the past is any indication, FansProject resin photos don't tend to lose much of their awe-inspiring detail in translation to the toy.

And I fully expect Code to see a rerelease of some kind, now that people are getting hyped.
