Firemaster Third Party Custom Animated Powermaster Armor?

A mysterious image has made its way to us - you can see it at left. All it says is "Coming Soon - Firemaster - Keep Animation Alive". The cryptic message refers to Transformers Animated, and the silhouette is a trace of the image of Animated Powermaster Optimus Prime as shown in the Allspark Almanac. According to 2005 Boards member Encline this may or may not be the same group responsible for the similar teaser of an Animated Menasor upgrade kit. Watch this space for more information as it becomes available.

MY DIIIIIIICK

I need this.

Animated power master prime?
Soundwave2
interest peaked...
General Tekno
....which third party group is this?

If it's a TFA Powermaster Prime, I sorta hope it's also compatible with Sentinel, for obvious reasons.
OptionZero
That silhouette is from the planned animated prime upgrade. We only had sketches.
Baccala1976
I'm thinking a add on to make Classics Optimus Prime into Powermaster Optimus Prime. If that's the case I'm all over it.
Toxicon
BONER FOREVER.

THE GODS HAVE SMILED UPON US

What a day. Here's hoping it looks cool.
exomega255
how do you guys tell its TFA? It doesn't say a lot from that angle view.
Fort Max
Serious potential for awesome here.

Shillouette matches that in the allspark almanac two and "Keep Animation Alive" is a pretty obvious clue as well.
encline
ahhhh.... looks Animated to me.

No, it's Animated Powermaster Prime. Aside from the fact that it's the same exact shape and pose as the cad art from the Allspark Almanac 2, it clearly states "Keep Animation Alive."

Again, it's a direct trace of Powermaster Prime from the AA2.

And the cad renderings.
SCPrime
is this from the same guys who plan to do the TFA Stunticon upgrade to Menasor? Encline, any word?
Ra88
Eh. We'll see if they can handle the Animated style, but I think at best this will just be an expensive tease of what could have been.

Well, they are HUGE Animated fans...and they have at least TWO releases they want for the next year...so maybe...but they are very picky and want things right.

Let's hope is it not just a tease...
Ra88
Hopefully. But I can't help but worry that they won't manage to match the style, or that the engineering won't be up too snuff. If they do, though? Must have.
Digilaut
Hooooo-leeee SHIT. Hope they can pull this off.

I think we need a Powermaster armor for Classics Prime that doesn't have the chunky, blocky look of the City Commander armor.

Have never been a fan of those sets.
ShadowMagnus
one word...........AWESOMERIFICEPICNESS!!!!!

Oh god, need so badly.

Hot Shot, Earth-Mode Ironhide, and Marauder Megatron too, please?


Gah, my wallet just kicked me in the nuts.

Not the same thing. Wingblade is just a cobbled together mess of parts that serves as the stepping stone to the full armoured design.

If the toy had been made, the idea was that the armour would transform into the rear portion of the firetruck, forming the full fire engine that Prime would be seen as from time-to-time.


So, the question remains, when this gets off the ground, will it be a completely new figure, or just an add-on?

For accuracy's sake, it needs to be a new toy. The wheelbase on the existing Prime molds is completely wrong, and the bumper can't be left intact on the stomach.

But I can live with a trailer add-on to the Voyager, as long as the armoured mode looks great, and the fire engine mode passable.

Yes.

Source?

Thank whichever god you believe because the shit just got real. Thank you so much who ever is producing this. Ever since seeing this design in the Almanac it has killed me to think it would never come to realization. Now I can die happy
mx-01 archon
So, how many of these things do you think DJW will buy?

Got this in an email from the guys doing the Menasor add-on.

This will probably come out before the N.O.S. trailer.

For those who went to Botcon, you probably met these guys walking around.
Baccala1976
Animated??? Well that's become an easy pass. Happy for those though who are excited!
Dom
Always awesome to see more Animated. gives me hope that 3rd party will pick up where Hasbro left off.

Im sure we will get an Sentinal Prime version, its very simple to do and will get them a greter return on the mold.
Matty
Oh this has potential ...
Mechafire
Oh my God. This is indescribably awesome. Holy shit.
Shin Densetsu
Eager to see moar! Loved Animated!

As cool as it would be to have a new Prime figure, these guys do not want to go there. They only want to make add-ons to use with the figures Hasbro has already released. If these guys can be successful enough with this and N.O.S, they will just be sticking to high quality accessories collectibles that look great.

It is the same guys as N.O.S. for the Animated Stunticons, and FIREMASTER is their main focus for a first release...
Kaijumaster
Still more excited for Menasor. but this has potential!

Also... N.O.S. stands for.... ?

And thanks for the confirmation encline. Mildly disappointed about the lack of accuracy, but it'll be cheaper this way. I need cheaper, what with TFC and FansProjects ridiculous offerings for the year.
megatroptimus
Will the trailer be based around Earth Mode Deluxe Prime? Or the Voyager version?
mx-01 archon
I'm hoping it's the Voyager, seeing as it's the only one readily available in normal colours. Deluxe is either battle damaged, crystal, or a ridiculously rare non-damaged Lucky Draw-type prize.
The Bucket Kitten
I'm curious to see how this will turn out, and I don't even like Animated.
Sioce
From the email I got, The trailer will be a faithful representation of the almanac design.

It will be redesigned to allow for use on the voyager Optimus Prime mold.

I am totally stoked for the repaint potential of this thing. Animated Nucleon Quest Convoy!!! TURBONER!!
Scaleface
If they made a version fit the Classic Voyager prime I'd be interested. That toy needs an add on that isn't a recolor of City Commander.
power3921
Holy crap, my parents will probobly disown me, but i will buy that!
Josh
Oh gawd yes!!!!!!!!

I want this so hard!
Coldiron
So much for the powermaster custom I am working on. Screw it, I'll make it anyway.
Cheem The Rup
so it will be like in these drawings ?
