Third party manufacturer FansProject, has replied to an email by TFW2005 member Victorysabre regarding a possible Combiner Bruticus Maximus Appendage Kit and a release date for the Protector Armor. This was their response:

Thanks for the email. I are working on one for Bruticus, but it's still in
a very initial progress. We will have the update when it's ready.
"Protector" seems not ready until 1 st quarter of 2010. Thanks
for your support. We are glad you enjoy our stuff.

*Board member frenzy_rumble has also recieved an email from FansProject stating the following:

Protector won't be ready til March. We are still tuning the
design of construction and details on the trailer. We have reached to the
level 3 prototype already. (CC has 5s.)

Thanks for sharing this info w/us. so now we know the FP Protector armour will only see the light of day from 2010 onwards....
Victorysabre
Well, I guess considering Rodimus was the leader for the 2010 series in Japan, it's kind of fitting.
Leemon
Bruticus... Cool!
Automorpher
Bruticus ain't what I'm after. I crave for Protector Upgrade now & its excruciating having to wait that long for its release.
ORIO
Oh. Hell. YES.

Someone suggest to them they make a couple of new heads for the scouts to give them a little more differentiation. That's why I passed on Superion.

I'd like that...
Victorysabre
Rather than heads, I just want them to make sure the heights will be the same so the sets can be mixed together. I am of course thinking of making sure they would be compatible to do on Nexus Maximus.

Why not both? Or a seperate add-on set of two new heads for any of the Energon combiner scouts?
BScorpinok75
Protector armor, early 2010, yessssss! Wouldn't mind a two piece scout head set. That would probably give me incentive to buy Bruticus and Superion Maximus.

Now we're getting greedy :-P

Yes on the Bruticus set, I'll have to get 2 and get a 2nd Superion set so Nexus Prime can get some parts
brr-icy
nice to see the protector armor is coming out, and a bruticus set? sold
Mister Gone
Woot, well that puts the "should I buy Bruticus" debate to rest. BOUGHT!
Bgrngod
I think the new head idea for the Scouts is a good thing, except for the issue with actually swapping them. If it isn't easy to swap them, then FP would probably avoid doing it. Really, only the CJ kit is the only thing they released that went as far as modding a figure. I know the modders here would argue that head swapping is hardly a mod, but still. I think FP is taking the route of only releasing stuff that Hasbro would perhaps like to do but doesn't for $$ reasons.

I would buy a Bruticus upgrade kit. And, as soon as I got it I would then demand they release a Nexus upgrade kit too. Cast in clear blue/red

NICE! Good to know a date on Protector. Seeing the sketches at the past TFCon was mindblowingly enough! -ahem- can FP get a Firebolt out of that?!
slowso
i think the FP bruticus maximus upgrade will be awesome...
Lumpy
i can't wait for a bruticus set either...and now ORIO and i can split a superion set and a bruticus set for our Nexus Primes to be upgraded...

Hell yeah, glad to see I'm not the only one with that plan
mugen_prime
I've been looking forward to Protector for a looong time! Can't wait to get that one. I'm VERY pleased to hear they're working on a Bruticus appendage set too!!! I'll definitely be getting that as well. Now we just need a Devastator set!!
Trikeboy
Protector is out in early 2010.

That is only a few of months away. Yay. I will be buying two. One for Henkei Hot Rod and another to repaint into Shattered Glass Rodimus Prime.
Prime Evil
Thanks for the report VS!!

No prob. I was surprised to get the email. I wrote them like, two months ago. The funny thing is, I've since gotten rid of all my FP stuff and the figures they go on. They figure out a "trailer" to put on the Classics Seeker mold to make a Classics Star Sabre (the seeker would need a recoloring) and that I'd go for.

One of our own is fast-tracking to beat them with a comparable (and so far GORGEOUS looking) product:

yeah...that may or may not look really cool...might look cool mixed with the FP set...i do like the head and the chest plate though...

wonder if we'll get a devastator set now...guess we'll have to wait and see

any one notice that :

Thanks for the email. I are working on one for Bruticus, but it's still in
a very initial progress. We will have the update when it's ready.
"Protector" seems not ready until 1 st quarter of 2010. Thanks
for your support. We are glad you enjoy our stuff.

:it's done incorrectly and you'd think that a company would check thier emails thoroughly before sending.

Or: It wasn't sent by a native English speaker. Typos and grammer flubs prove or disprove nothing.

nice, can't wait for their bruticus kit and hope they re-work the head on that guy.

first quarter 2010 is really close...that's just 3-4 months away

Yeah, this is the same group that has a "Translation misunderstanding" that caused the whole DIA Commander drama-rama.

Zero surprise with the poor spelling in English.

I guess we can just wait for their site to update with any news about it...
Hikuro
Hm either case........looks like I still got lots of time before they put up preorders for Roddie. I'm wondering how this'll work, almost feel like there'll be a lot of useless stuff laying around, UNLESS they go G1 inspired and use what's left of his trailer for his little battle platform......which makes sense.

yeah guys, stop complaining, it may ruin some christmas's ( maybe a present for someone) but it's not really a loss, just have to wait another 4 to 3 months which will go really painfully slowly and people u'll complain (darn it) but it was inivetable as we would have seen some photos by now if it was coming out this year (it may make e.c.r formers beyond your wildest imagination longer should he decide to have a rodimus prime) but come on, animated rod prime will soon be out (hopefully
UltraPrimal
I are glad to heard that Protector to soon be out. Me not know if Bruticus Maximus Add-On is requirement.

Sorry, but I just love Engrish. It cracks me up.

it goind to become armour like city commander ( honestly have you been living in a black hole
StayingInTheBox
First quarter 2010 . . . we could be waiting till MARCH for this Rodimus Protector upgrade. Let's hope this wait might drive the prices of Classics Rodimus down a little bit.
Optimus_Khan
Great news about the appendage. I have the Superion appendage for both Super Link versions and ROTF version (In SL he did have a brother so I like to consider both of them "brothers"). I'm happy with everything I've gotten from FP and I can't wait for the Protector set.

Seeing how there's been no production images but that ONE in vehicle mode, I don't see how entirely. I'm sure some of the parts will be add on pieces to Rodimus' body, but I can't see every piece being so.
OptionZero
FP has been known to wait till the last second to reveal a feature

See: g3 trailer stealth mode, superion set fast pack mode

Now there's a nod to G1 Bruticus if I ever saw one...

Hands... F*** the weapon fingers... HANDS.
grimlock1972
get both figs now especially classics/henkei Rodimus as it jump in price once the protector kit is released assuming it is as epic as the Commander kits
JAYSCREAM
GOOD TIMES!
knew there was a reason i still have my classics roddy when i have a henkei one. double bonus my birthdays in jan so that might give me an excuse to actually buy it if it's out jan/feb. fingers crossed.
46+2
I cant wait! I need a glimpse of what they are planning for bruticus.
Dirt Boss
Nice find! Bruticus has always been my favorite combiner.
starscream-99
Sounds good. The only downfall is that I don't own a Classics Hot Rod yet and this this will jack up the price.
Kaijumaster
New Heads would be Cool but I'm not demanding, What I WOULD like is an Arm set for Energon Devastator
Robticon
So, The Protector armor is going to be released in the 1st quarter of next year?
Yay! My Hot Rod will no longer have to go naked! ^^
Cast
Sweet, combiner goodness plus were still getting Protector and I have more time to save for it.
