TFW2005 Site Sponsor RobotKingdom has updated their Facebook with new images of two upcoming new products, from the new Third Party group known as KFClub (Which apparently stands for Keith's Fantasy Club.) Based on the G1 Cassettes Ramhorn and Steeljaw, KFClub is planning on releasing CST-01 "Rhinohorn" and CST-02 "Ironpaw" sometime in February. These cassettes are also designed to fit in the chest of MP-13 Soundwave. There is no other information, including price, available at this time.

Please remember that these are third-party products not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara.

COOL! Those are Eagle's molds!

I used to own Ramhorn and thought it was a pretty sweet design. Always thought that Steeljaw was even cooler looking.

Any idea on price and if they will be painted or not?
Cheem The Rup
RK didn't write about so much, let's wait for more infos
cylor
Did Eagle authorize KFClub to use his design, or is it another bootleg of a 3rd party product?

So, this is the upscaled version of Eagle's versions.

Kentucky Fried Chicken club? Sounds greasy!
Líder Optimus
Those look cool! The minions alone are tempting me to get MP Soundwave. Oh, well...

Right. But aren't these blaster's minions?
supervir2
You'd think they might polish the design a touch and maybe add some paint before mass release. As nice as the general design is, they still look pretty rough
knightmare6
Meh, Ramhorn and Steeljaw... I'll pass for now. I was hoping for Overkill and Slugfest or Beastbox and Sqawktalk (with Beastie & Squawkie able to combine)

Those are prototypes...
ZEGR
they would look cool with fanstoys blaster
BScorpinok75
If these are at a decent price I'd be interested
DJW107PRIME
Oh! I always hoped those would see a general release I am down for this when the time comes. Even better if they are painted.

1000*This.
ORIO
Curious on the relationship/connection with eagles as well.

That being said, I love them so far. I'm in dire need of Blaster minions that actually turn into tapes for my Classics Device Label Blaster

Does no one else think that Keiths Fantasy Club is a disturbing name?

Is it because of the KFC reference?

THe Decepticons have used KFC tech to change autobots into decepticons.

I think it sounds fine... now if there are characters named Pain and Gain and they're wearing bondage gear and have ball gags instead of faceplates, wielding whips, and have stiletto heels instead of ankle supports, then maybe...
Soundwave3k
Aaaaand I'm just going to wait and see what FansToys comes up with.
Stygian360
Although I wasn't entirely digging on the floppy sides for Ram Horn that Peaugh showed in his recent pre-release video, if KFClub has worked out that particular design quirk then I'm all over these! Loves me some tape minion goodness.
YoungPrime
I'm interested....
bradforj
I love me some KFC. Do these guys come with grav-ah?!
brr-icy
lol, eagle's engineering is great, it's the finish that needs work to fit in with classics/mps. need to see some improvement on that end before i bite
Inner Robot
I love the concept, but I think the figure sculpts leave a lot to be desired. A big pass on these guys.
gothsaurus
I have both the original versions of these guys, and they are FANTASTIC. The clever design makes for some really thick, bulky, and pretty large cassette characters when compared with the G1 versions. I'd put them conceptually up against any of the other cassettes —*including generations, music label, FOC, masterpiece. I lurve them.

Getting a nicely colored and painted version would keep me from trying to paint the ones I have. I thoroughly welcome these and cannot recommend them enough. (Hoping Eagle is seeing royalties from these?? Else, I'd yank my endorsement quick.)

The figure sculpts were actually pretty good in hand. At least I thought so. Never got to see Steeljaw in person though. It definitely could use some "fit and finish". Paint would go a long way to help this guy out.
gothsaurus
Yeah, they're actually pretty darn detailed in person. Surprising detail and texture. I think if they were painted well, they would pop nicely.

And did I mention they're like FOUR times thicker than the cassettes!!??? They fold out in really cool ways. Really creative.

Word.
Inner Robot
It's not so much the fit and finish, they'd probably turn out okay. The addition of some routed angles into the edges on some of the contours would have been nice to see.
CZ Hazard
Interesting. Some nice chunky Autobot cassettes, about time.
gothsaurus
agreed on the angled edges. I think that one thing would take them right over the top.
destrongerlupus
VERY excited about getting the Steelhaw I missed out on under Eagle's watch.

VERY not cool with this being done without Eagle's permission.

They're things of beauty though.

Has this been confirmed?

If this is true, then I have no interest. Those of us who buy 3rd-party stuff are in the gray area, but I draw the line at blatantly stealing somebody's actual toy design and selling it. From the few email conversations I've had with Eagle in the past, he seems like a nice guy who's put a lot of work into his projects. If it's not true, then I'm glad his designs are actually being finished (would love to see his Kup and Scourge produced as finished products).

It's the same reason I didn't get the Superalloy Wheelie, even though it's a nice-looking toy.
Timesynch
These look neat but will wait for photos of the final (painted) product. As nice as the engineering looks, the molds themselves are a bit bare without any paint or at least some Reprolabels stickers.
Grimlock_13
I'll be keeping an eye on these...they're definitely rough and could use some mold improvements but even if they turn out exactly like in those pictures they'd still be better than the garbage FoC official ones.

I should have tossed an IF in there. I don't know anything for sure. But I don't have a great feeling about this.

And Eagle is a GREAT guy, I've had a fair number of conversations with him, and he's the truest sort of fan, and amazingly creative and talented. If he sanctioned these then I'm thrilled for him, if not, then this was a low low sort of move.

SMOG
Ironpaw looks fantastic, but Rhinohorn just doesn't quite have the right silhouette for me. As a rhino, he's a bit too stylized.

But both look pretty amazing, really. I'll be curious to see pricing on these.

I love these molds. Eagle sold out of Steeljaw far too quickly, and he seemed pretty set on not making another run. So this is good news for a lot of folks like myself!

Oh good! Well, unless it comes out that this isn't the case, I'm on board!

I've been in agony over missing that Steeljaw.

I share your pain... I too missed the Steeljaw.

I do own the Ramhorn. I also own his Scourge, Kup and WST Metroplex
