Keith's Fantasy Club Smack Down and Black Hawk

Blackhawkdown-boxes
Keith's Fantasy Club have revealed a limited run redeco of their B-Box and Birdbomber unlicensed Beastbox & Squawktalk. The new versions are known as Smackdown and Black Hawk, members of the "Black Redeco Clan". They are black redecos, limited to 500 pieces and made exclusively for the group Hands of Steel. Amusingly their combined form is known as "Black Hawk Down", one of the many amusing film references in this set (Smack Down's bio contains another, this one to the movie King of Kong)

Those are actually kinda cool.

According to the biography, Smack Down's favorite movie is "King of Kong".

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Some inconsistency in the box text though. The combined form is called "Blackhawk Down" in some places and "Black Hawk Down" in others....

That's cool, but I came here thinking this was a announcement on their version of Grand Slam... I'll walk away now

SmackDown .

This is a limited roaming convention exclusive, I'm in a small facebook group called Hands of Steel and it was organised so those dudes could have an exclusive figure, but due to the demands of production runs it will very likely be offered outside of the site as well.
Scaleface
I'm surprised we have not seen a black Rhinohorn yet.
SteelSeraphim
BlackHawk Down?

The pun is just killing me.
Scaleface
What's coming next Blue and Thunder? Pearl and Harbor? Rio and Bravo? Die and Hard?

With the mention of the Black Redeco Clan, I have to wonder how this toy is related to Upgrade Commander's Black Rager.

LOVE the name, I hope these DO become more widely available as has been suggested.

Pretty cool!
Scaleface
Oh crap! I just realized. The bio for Smack Down makes a reference to the movie "King of Kongs", a movie about the video game Donkey Kong. People will need to get the Mech Ideas not-Animated Huffer to go with this so they can have Mario and Donkey Kong in Transformer form!

While they are primarily exclusive to the group "Hands of Steel" (on facebook) there will be someone making the convention rounds (BotCon, AA, TFCon) selling any that aren't currently claimed at the time, limited to one set per person.

can't wait to get my hands on one of these. Gonna display this one combined and the normal colored ones seperate...all with my MP Soundwave!
darkshot8
I wish the first version of these guys would come out FIRST before they repaint it.
Scaleface
Well, I supposed they could have called him "Smack Hawk".
gothsaurus
I reallllly want a set of these. Have all the variants so far. If anyone has a lead on a set or could snag one at a con for me please shoot me a pm!
bradforj
Do we really need this in black? How about getting the regular version out first?
Scaleface
They seem to be all the color variants of one mold at the same time. Probably easier.
darthJMZ

A few of the HOS brethren have these in stock now, they are awesome. I think when people get a good look at how poseable these triple changing cassettes are, they will go mental for these. They are essentially MP level production quality. The combined mode has 15 points of articulation, some action figures don't have that much movement and they don't transform.

And what's not to love about black repaints?
Scaleface
David Harland just posted actual toy images on his facebook page. He says "Black Hawk Down is ready, and we can announce the first convention these will be available in a few days."

Looks like the only paint on these guys is the red eyes!

Sol Fury
We have received more pics and also news on where this will be first available - news story here - KFC Black Hawk Down Hands of Steel Exclusive In-Hand Images - Transformers News - TFW2005

I have had it confirmed to me that the first place you can pick one of these up from one of the Hands of Steel Brethren is B.O.T.S. 2013 in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, this Sunday, 9 June 2013!

I think it's Hands of Steel. Hearts of Steel is a comic by IDW.

As someone who likes Rhino but was not absolutely blown away by him, I remain skeptical on these two until I see final colors and a few QC reviews.
JetBrawn
just noticed how the gorilla's feet are a lot bigger/chunkier than the hands.



I think MT Giant's not-Long Haul looks like a better gorilla bot.
Timesynch
Can't stop staring at that crotch-beak. XD

These look pretty good. I might pick up the geewun colored versions.

Bugger, yes you're right, been getting them both mixed up all night long! (You should see me try to remember which one Rewind is, and this is after I read More than Meets the Eye!)

gothsaurus

Hands of Steel is a worldwide secret conglomerate of Transformers Fanatics (they're like the Illuminati of TFs) who dream that one day Unicron will rise from our Ranks, and Darken our Brightest Hour. They control the Horizontal and the Vertical. They track and plot the course of all things Cybertronian, and like a Guiding Hand, motion the path along.

They exist everywhere, and no where. Within us all, and in the universe in general.

Till that day - Are All Dead


. . . .
OK, did I confuse anyone yet? No? Just me?
Damn.

Same here...order placed. Now the waiting begins.
X-Arachnis
And from their ranks shall rise the one they call the slayer and he shall lead the forces of chaos to destroy all that is holy. His bloodlust will be as terrifying as it will be majestic and all will bow for the lord Unicron and all bacon will be his reward...

If burning a Bayformer Bumblebee is the only requirement, many of us may already be members without knowing it!
DarekSilver
Did you get the secret memo on the back of a scraplet Inviting you to the Stellar Forges of Kolkular to partake in the ceremonial stripping our your spark casing and acid bath?

....if so, then maybe you are! Or maybe you were on my invite list for the "Get-a-way Weekend"
X-Arachnis
ahh but brother Dareksilver, you leave the best parts out. the chanting and sacrificial slaughter of a human, the bathing in it's fluids and not to mention the glorious wearing of it's face!
jtwhoib
You guys are entirely messed up lmao
