A picture has recently been posted on TFCToys' Weibo account of a possible upcoming weapon that may or may not be for their Hercules toy. The rifle seems to be a modular weapon with different configurations for the gun depending on where you attach the parts. There is no word on a release date, price, or even if this weapon will be released.

Mad Blender 2012.4
Before ANYONE jump the gun and ask why Neckbreaker and Dr.Crank have a 3 month instead of a 2 month gap: its chinese new year. So don't go attribute to the "I am cancelling preorder cuz they didn't show last two" reason.

Structor and Dr Crank being released 1 month apart makes up for it though.
Also production times can change. We might be lucky and they get pushed closer together.

That last three month gap is going to be a killer on my patience...

I know I won't mind. I just want to stop those complainers using this information to complain more.
Zambot
Woot! Glad they finally announced a schedule. People can at least relax in the knowledge that they are planning to release all of the figures.

Seems like every two months.

It may be murder on my patience but my wallet has breathed a heavy sigh of relief.


I still think we are long overdue in seeing the last two figures but I won't sweat it. The last two limbs are the easier of the bunch. (The hardest to engineer being the body two which we will get) So EVEN IF TFC doesn't finish this someone will.

I have been vocal for my displeasure with the price (it's not ridiculesly high but on the high end of acceptable) but as with all my purchases, once done the money is forgotten and I will have a giant Devastator in my collection to adore.

I won't be jumping on pre orders yet because they are still going slow but man I look/don't look forward to all the fun and games of getting the last 2 or 3 figures.

This is going to be a fun year with a lot of drama as a Transfan.
godspeed
DrCrank? Lol
Kaijumaster
OH THANK GOD!

We can stop the "I'm not buying it because they havn't show the last two " Threads

Or the even worse "We KNOW thier not releasing the last 2 because they havn't shown them" threads.

what I CAN complain about is Mixmaster....my favorite TF of all time...is the FINAL one.
gothsaurus
Rahahaha. The name Doctor Crank makes up for the wait. Hilarious.
Oh_Slag
All this does now is infuriate people who are paranoid about the status of the last 2 figures. All I will say is that I expect we will see the last 2 figures before the 2nd figure begins shipping.

That being said, I am eager for a video review of Exgraver to pop-up somewhere so we can better judge the quality of this project.

I am digging the names of the individual bots (Mad Blender-LOL)
XxGeck0xX
Can't wait for these!!!!!
gothsaurus
I just did a search for the G1 cartoon version of this guy... and man. They look NOTHING alike! The vehicle mode looks great, but I wish they would have taken more cues from the character model. Face, body shape, chest color... all very different.

I was hoping this would be a great substitute for the missing Classics characters, but as it stands... they may just be fantastic OTHER constucticons. (like the Power Core group.)

As is, I'll buy these... but still be waiting for another 3rd party (or Hasbro) to put out some resembling the originals better.

... or a "4th" party to put out replacement heads. (groan)

I'm good for all 6 with that schedule

My thoughts exactly.
Karhukjnsi
I'm sure most have figured 'em out, but here's what I figured:
Exgraver - Scavenger (derp)
Heavylabor - Long Haul
Stuctor - Scrapper
Dr Crank - Hook
Neckbreaker - Bonecrusher
Mad Blender - Mixmaster
mikeflosi
I personally need to see the finish product before I buy one of them.

Oh great! At least my wallet can breathe a little now!!!! I don't mind the wait AT ALL! Thank you TFClub, Thank you!!!!!!

3 month wait?? blah


canceling pre-order.
Torque
i look forward to these guys-though spreading it out makes life quite a bit easier, lemme tell ya
sodawilly
No sweat. I'm excited for these all to finally to be out. I am liking the little break in between too so I can continue to get other third party and HasTak stuff.

If you notice on the new pics, the hand fits in the back of Exgraver in alt mode.

Yeah, the having to wait 3 months was the final straw LOL.

Please. I still have my 2 on pre-order with TFSource. I'm getting ripped off but oh well.

sometimes I think you'd agrue Fansproject ripped people off for how Much you had to pay them for Blesser.

Its cool that it gets some people one to two months to save up for all six not-Constructicons. But man these names are hilarious. Mad Bender...my fave is got to be Neckbreaker, now that sounds badass. But thats just me.
blurr69
at least people have a whole year, at least, to start saving up ^^
Ceric Neesh
Knowing the schedule actually sold me on them. Before, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to save up the money for each one in between purchases, but with the schedule, I just put in my preorder and am looking forward to this!

No argument here.
Sidecutter
Very nice, I can't wait for the full set to be released, I've really been looking forward to seeing this set in full. Too bad they didn't give us pricing confirmation yet. It's reasonable to bet that all six will carry the same price, but there's no guarantee there won't be some variance. To start listing pre-orders or not for the remaining five...hmmm...
Transbot90210
let it load there are a few new pics showing the back of the figure in both modes and a pic of the hand. You can see the hand stored away perfectly at the back of exgraver in alt mode.
bithomas
Too bad TFClub didn't use the name Gravedigger for any of them, as that name was used for a Constructicon in the first Transformers Find Your Fate book (I assume that was an earlier name for Scavenger - it's definitely not Scrapper since he is also referenced in the book). Granted, I'd be seriously surprised if the TFClub members even knew about that obscure reference, but it still would have been a cool name to use.

6.3 inches. Ok, so it is somewhere between a large Deluxe or small voyager.

They read our reactions, and are positioning themselves differently. They'll say what it takes to keep people from cancelling pre-orders. For those worried about the schedule, they came up with one. Doesn't mean they have intentions of sticking to it. For those worried about the last two bots, they made up names. Doesn't mean they've been created yet.

I think that's actually just the domestic China shipping cost.

It's exactly the same height as Dotm Megatron & Shockwave.

There needs to be way more discussion about the fact that one of them is named DR CRANK.

That's a perspective, and not facts. Its really negative, but then again you can say that about anything if you dislike it enough.
Torque
So

Exgraver = Scavenger
Heavylabor = Long Haul
Structor = Scrapper
Dr.Crank = Hook
Neckbreaker = Bonecrusher
Mad Blender = Mixmaster

Those are some great names, lemme tell ya lol
Transbot90210
I dIdn't know a release schedule verifies the last two bots.

The names are old news we have seen them long ago (I think when the 3rd figure was released)

I am not a doomsdayer and saying the last 2 figs don't exist but we still have no proof either way. A release date means nothing.
Manok
These are the only figs I budgeted for this year so I don't mind waiting. Getting into joes more. Just can't find the darned things in stores.

I've never seen you in real life. you don't even have an avatar image with your posts. I've never seen a post from you before when I visit the boards. and I've never tasted your grandmother chocolate chip cookies in the day of april 13th. Therfore...you must be a neon orange mechanical lion!

Swap FP with, say, iGear, and then we're talking . TFClub and FP are on friendly terms with each other. TFC gave FP their start after all, commissioning and distributing the Cliffjumper kits.

yup
Sioce
So this schedule actually contains pics of the last 2 bots and the combined mode? I'll have to look very closely.... Shit I don't see it. Can someone please help me find the pics that put the fears of no pics to rest?

When I see AT LEAST a rendering of the final bots and/or combined form I will count on buying these.

Here is my schedule for this year.

August:I will fly
September: I will be able to breathe under water
December: Space flight (Longer gap for training)

You can make a schedule that says anything you want it to. PICS OR GTFO
