Fansproject Function-X Teaser

function_X
Third party group Fansproject has updated their website with a teaser image for their upcoming line of Headmaster-inspired figures. If you recall this year's TFcon 2012 Third Party Panel, these silhouettes will be familiar to you, and based on what we've been shown, the first release will be an homage to Chromedome.

Staff Note: Please be aware that these are figures not produced or endorsed by Hasbro or Takara Tomy.

Correct!

robot-japan - FANSPROJECT FUNCTION X (Headmasters)
Sammael
My guesses (top to bottom, left to right):
Chromedome, Brainstorm, Mindwipe, Weirdwolf, Skullcruncher

EDIT: going by Trent's link, I am probably right. The only one missing is Minerva, which is logical since they have to design her more carefully in order to create Nightbeat out of the same mold.

Mr_K

Theoretically headmasters do "combine"....as the head attaches to the body and is a separate robot of its own. I imagine that might be what it is referring to.

I think that refers to the combination of the Headmaster and the transtector.
deaculpa
Nice. I was hoping for menasor updates though.
Taziir
My eyes... playing tricks on me... honestly thought these were the Stunticons!!!
zebramatt
I'm more excited for these than I probably should be!
sodawilly
I so can't wait for these!

Excite!
deathsheadII
i shall be 100% buying these
jtscribe
No Highbrow? No Hardhead?
Transformed
When are are they going to show off more of the Stunticons? I don't want to see ant more works in progress from these guys unless it is Menasor related.
Computer5
i hope they are decently sized! I always wanted an updated Chromedome and Mindwipe.
skiss
Nothing is more unattractive then the FP hype machine. Will forget about this until they are released.

Dude, Headrobots already made a Hardhead, plus there's another group making a Hardhead

I'm quite Hardheaded out. I'd rather see new characters. Plus, well, Chromedome is sort of an Autobot leader of sorts. And Brainstorm is a cool guy
Spyne98
I'm not sure if i can call these an instant buy, but it is exciting. I am looking forward to the final results.
daimchoc
Do we have a Function X thread already? If not, can we just make this that one? Thread name change then.
deathsheadII
looking at the pic again looks like we will be getting chromedome first as the hand icon is over it and the others have loading icons over them
GaussGunner
Where stunticons?
Prime Evil
You had me at "FansProject"! Instant preorder.

Wait........
CVprowl
nice. im down. toyworld has a nice hardhead coming out. not sure how it will size up with these. its huge, like igear ironhide height. how big are these?
Sully
I'm hoping the Toyworld Hardhead and these match up nicely with these. Hopefully there will be more pictures that will confirm the scale of these guys.

But at a guess I'd say they'd be on scale with Steelcore who is a power master (aka Heartmaster).

Just done some quick searching to get hopefully some idea of the scale of these guys:

Here's a picture of Steelcore beside Fan's project enhanced Rodimus. Makes him about the same height as the original Classics Prime.



Here's one of TJ's pics of the Heartmaster who you'd guess that FP would want to keep on scale with their Headmasters:



And then we've Hardhead from Toyworld beside Not-Rollbar


Grindrod (aka not Rollbar) is a decent deluxe side figure and shouldn't be that out of scale then with Steelcore. Hopefully, and judging by Fansproject standards he will be on scale with Function X and Toyworlds Hard Head shouldn't be that far out here. If someone (who has a better camera than me!) has Steelcore and Grindrod could they please post up a comparison picture if the two toys?
Naztok
I'm really excited to see prototypes of these guys.
I'm curious about the size of the robot modes and how small that would make the Headmasters.
megatroptimus
At least getting Crocodimus Prime.
MyTea Boc
Really cool. I hope that the brainstorm one has a face plate. and brainstorm colours. And hell, a small briefcase!
Composite Ghost
Nooooooo. These aren't Headmasters. They're completely new characters!
exomega255
Fansproject's name is the only thing I need to confirm that I will be preordering these. The only question is how many should I order per.
Oilspill
It's good timing o release a Chromedome homage, given how much he's been appearing in the IDW comics lately.

Love the original headmasters, so looking forward to these. Hope they end up doing all of them.
Slimaximus
Headmasters was one of my fav sgments of transformers bring it on
Astronut
Not much new, still looks very promising. Hoping for some awesome looking headmasters!

It was only a few days ago I saw a long and eloquent post arguing why FP doesn't do (or need to do) teasing with silhouettes, renders and blurry images. yet here we are today And here we've been with pretty much any FP release lately.

They look great, well save for Minerva, she looks more than a bit daft. No idea what the Optimus croc is about though. All bought probably.
Loving the deceptibeasties.
knightmare6
I want that Mindwipe, the rest I can pass comfortably... maybe...

Probably a take on the Alligatocon from City of Steel, when Optimus was disassembled by the Constructicons and rebuilt into an alligator.

I think it's a neat idea. If I supported 3rd party stuff at all, I'd definitely save up for it.
MechaV
Chromedome's a must get.
Impactor1106
Chromedome and Brainstorm are a must for me. Have to see some prototype images before deciding on the rest. Oh, who am I kidding? It's Fansproject - they are all bought!!!!
jourdo
Bought without hesitation. I keep waiting for Fansproject to come up with a subscription service to save me the trouble of ordering.
SPLIT LIP
Really dissapointed that Chromedome and Brainstorm don't even have MTMTE-style heads. No sale on either. Chromedome especially just looks so generic. And Brainstorm doesn't even look like Brainstorm. Is that even supposed to be Brainstorm?
eriku
I am excite!

What's a SPACEDRIFT? Is that what not-Brainstorm is supposed to be? That'd make more sense then.
process
Oh, no idea, that's just what it looks like to me.
eriku
Are there more photos other than the one of the silhouettes?
Just wondering where the Croctimus Prime and other comments about head style are coming from.

They're from the pics that Fansproject teased at TFcon way back when.
