Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have broken a couple of major bits of news tonight. The first of them is the reveal of prototypes of the next two releases from FansProject, Function X-2 Weirdwolf and Function X-3 Brainstorm. So far only resin prototypes of the alternate forms are seen. As always bear in mind if you please that these are not officially licensed or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara-Tomy.

Because it's not an active pre-order yet. It's a placeholder page while they figure out what they're going to sell it for.

It'll be active sooner or later.
Gundamben831
gotcha, I'll be bookmarking it for now

this guy is going to look sick in color.
Bountyan

I agree, and its nice being I never got to own any of the original headrobots these new renditions of them are awesome.

I know you're trying to be funny, but you are going to rile up the spoiled man-children! Haha

I'm hoping for, no, I'm demanding landing gear tilt. If the landing gear can't be splayed outward slightly like a real imaginary jet then FP might as well just throw it in the garbage and start over from scratch.

Alt mode is looking pretty sweet. Looks enough like RID's metalhawk's alt mode that someone could probably do a pretty cool custom out of him.
OptimusTimelord
Ouch, that wolf head is bad!
Transbot90210
FP busting out the news today.

That is one sexy looking Alt mode, I look forward to the Bot mode.

One question though, where is the cockpit for the headmaster/

You can see where the hinge is in front. It's just a prototype so the cockpit isn't cast in clear plastic yet.
conleyh2006
fansproject should use the headmaster to the wolf as the wolfs head and robot head and make it transform like he would have in the show that would be a nice touch to see done
Matty
DAMN! That alt mode looks slick. I can't handle all this news right now.
Tekkaman Blade
I'd love to get it for the price on the BBTS website, but they are sold out....heh
soymonk
I'll have wait for images of the bit modes before I make my decision. I hope they're not as bland as not-Chromedome.
Grimlock_13
Brainstorm's alt mode is sweet. Weirdwolfs wolf head looks a little odd but it's a small complaint. If these guys are half as awesome as Chromedome I'll be very happy.
Shatterblast
Not amazing but still pretty good. I'm just happy to alleviate the sting of not having Botcon Weirdwolf, I could never justify buying him at his aftermarket price.
ORIO
*refreshes preorder pages*

Go live damn you!
Atomatron
these sadly drop back in my queue... MMC Ferreros or whatever and TT MPs

plus Joecon...

maybe in the fall ill revisit these... was glad to help TFT..
grimlock1972
Want these but once again too many options not enough cash. got to decide how to handle choosing when to buy all the awesome stuff coming out.

I'm furiously pumping that F5 right along with you.

Headmasters is absolutely my focus for 2013. There are tons of other things I want but nothing gets in the way of Function-X and Fort Max.
IceWilly
I'm somewhat glad of this for spending reasons, but the Function bots just don't do it for me. They are quite lanky and too "humanoid" for me. Maybe it's just Chromedome and the others won't be as bad, but the rounded limps and feet just make it look too much like either a human or a female type bot.

Plus I have a love for the G1 headmasters, even though they are quite inferior in design. Brainstorm and Highbrow are my favorites, so I suppose seeing bot modes of Brainstorm may swing me over to liking them.
Yobuster
Experience tells me that if we are seeing the resin prototype, it usually means they are a lot farther down the road than it appears. My bet in the 2 months, we'll see the pre-orders up with the first shipments hitting by May. Think about what happened with X-1 Code (aka Chromedome). We saw the grey proto and before we knew it, he was available.
Atomatron
worst part (for me) is not knowing the release date. chromedome was feb/march then SURPRISE heres a charge in December, not doing that again
Calabask
Liking Brainstorm. Weird wolf looks... Weird. I don't know. I'm just not feeling him for whatever reason. Maybe he'll look better in color.
CyclonuS_ZerO
Dat Weird Wolf son!!!!!!
dominusveritas
I'm probably the only one who wants these out later rather than sooner huh?
worldsgreatest
Weirdwolf was always my favorite Headmaster. Bummed that the wolf head looks so terrible.

As in, Weirdwolf's wolf's head looks weird?

I was gonna argue with you about the wolf head until I took another look at it. It needs to be just a smidgen shorter and then it wouldn't be so bad. I'll wait for color protos but I think I'm still on board regardless.
David Hingtgen
Brainstorm has better landing gear than the "real" planes TFC made for Uranos...
Starscream NZ
Hrmmm, had a KO Brainstorm when I was a kid, kind of tempted to get this. KO was red and yellow though, which was strange.
Z005WFT
FPJ is releasing a ton this year. Good stuff so far.
Stygian360
Funny, was just putting an after market Reprolabel rub symbol on Function-X1 last night and thinking... I can't wait for Weird Wolf to show up so I can have him side-by-side with Chromedome! Needless to say, I love these FP Headmasters and eagerly anticipate the next few. A pre-order when they finailly do show up? DUH!!

But...But...But.... he's called "Weeeeird Wolf", guys. Emphasis on the 'Weird'.
Gryph
The transformations are going to be nuts. Weirdwolf's mid section is the upper legs of the robot mode, and Brainstorm's wing guns are his feet. I hope we get more from Jizai after this series. I love his engineering style so much.
allew
Brainstorm's a definite must buy for me. I was happy with the size and colors of Botcon Weirdwolf (if Headrobots had ever made an upgrade kit for him with a headmaster he'd be perfect) but gotta go with FP's version as well...
