Site sponsors BigBadToyStore and TFSource have partnered with third party group Fansproject for a particularly noble cause: Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army! By pre-ordering the mystery Fansproject figure from the upcoming Function-X line, $20 will be donated to good causes during this holiday season. A preorder from Big Bad Toy Store will trigger a $20 donation to Toys for Toys, and a preorder from TFSource will trigger a $20 donation to the Salvation Army. Please note the order prices linked above are the final prices - TFSource and BBTS will be making the donations themselves and not raising the order price to cover the donation.

$20 Toys for Tots Donation & FansProject Function X-1 Mystery Figure - Ends December 16th - Third Party Transforming Toys & Accessories FansProject

Quote:
Preorders close December 16th!

FansProject and BigBadToyStore are teaming up to help out needy children this holiday season! FansProject and BigBadToyStore will be donating $20 (wholesale cost) worth of toys to the Toys for Tots organization for every piece of the Function X-1 figure preordered by December 16th. We'll gather up the huge donation on December 17th and deliver it to Toys for Tots and we'll post images shortly after that.

This figure is a four wheeled vehicle that converts to robot mode and it features two scoped rifles - that is all we can tell you for now!

Preorder now and help us make Christmas memorable for many needy children.
Of the known Function-X figures, both not-Chromedome and not-Minerva are 4-wheeled vehicles with a pair of scoped rifles. The packing on the order page seems to indicate that it'll be not-Chromedome, or at least a not-Chromedome redeco.

Speculate!

I'll buy a toy for this cause. This seems like a win/win for everybody involved.

No idea what this figure could be. Is it from the Headmasters line that was revealed?
BigRC83
I wonder what it could be?
MegaMoonMan
I'm going to guess Chromedome.
CyclonuS_ZerO
Function X is supposed to be their take on Headmasters figures. This is more than likely Chromedome.
GreenScream
Not really interested in FP Headmaster bots. But placed an order for a good cause.
cobra zartan
Great deal and good cause!
Bountyan
Wow Fansproject wastes no time.

I want to get this but I'm tight on money right now so I'll do it after I have enough for Menasor and BBTS Omega Supreme. If it's sold out by then, oh well.
StayingInTheBox
I'm gonna put my money on Minerva.
Lbsammills51
Preorder's in, cool to make a preorder and it actually benefits something besides my collection.

I'm admittedly pleasantly surprised that one will be ready by early '13. I wonder if this has any impact on their Stunticons.
Fort Max
Is anyone really going to bet against chromedome?
SCPrime
or could be repaint of steelcore
The Crow
Looks and Sounds like its Not-Chromedome
cobra zartan
Box art looks like chromedomes face
Dr. Prime
Pre-ordered! This was a no brainer as I have faith in FP and more kids get toys

Doesn't really matter which one it is
Sammael
Preordered! I have faith in FP, and this is a valiant cause.
exomega255
this is exactly why FP is on the top of the food chain. First to help with Japan Tsunami release and now this. Thumbs up FP.

1. Great company? Check.
2. Toy that I want? Check.
3. For a good cause? Check.

Preordered. Might come back and order a few more for the good cause.
Lumpy
Awesome, I don't know if i'll have the money before the 16th, but if I do, I'll preorder.

Or will that not even matter? cuz they don't charge til it arrives, right? so then I can totally preorder and have the money ready by early 2013. I think I'll do that. and $20 wholesale means $30-$40 retail price, so that's a lot of toys to donate. Good for BBTS, even if they do just take old action figures from their clearance inventory, it's a good thing for everyone.
SCPrime
bbts only had 500 in stock to start. Is this limited run exclusive to bbts? if so, likely a repaint. Like I mentioned, could be steel core repaint.
GaussGunner
Woooooho!!!!! .
General Tekno
You know, reading this, it sounds like it's also a way for BBTS to write off a ton of inventory they've probably been unable to unload, despite trying to clear it out.

I won't be surprised if stuff like PRiD Bumblebee finally goes out of stock.

It says specifically that's its the f(x) line though, meaning it must be one of the headmasters.

If you want it, preorder fast. Description says preorders close on Dec. 16.
GaussGunner
Thanks, thanks Fansproject!!!
vectorplex
just pre-ordered mine feels good to help
canonball
Ordered.
Girl Pants
Ordered.

I want Chromedome anyway, and $20 to T4T is a cool deal. Even if this ends up being a vanilla version of the toy, I don't mind. I want the toy and some kids get a better Christmas.

Hoping that it includes something unique though. Maybe a US-style head instead of a Japanese one? (or the other way round, I forget which they went with) Or a unique gun or accessory.
Cracka J
sounds pretty cool, and for a good cause. I think I'm down.

I see. whatever it is, sold 100 in 15 minutes. that 500 might not even last til Dec 16.
CVprowl
it says it will weigh 1.68 lbs shipping. if this is accurate here's a comparison to other FP items listed shipping weight...

assaulter 2.45 lbs
defender 1.47 lbs
insecticons 0.78 lbs each
crossfire set of 02 2.66 lbs
crossfire explorer 1.29 lbs
warcry 0.67

interesting that it tops defender in weight. anything by fp that weighs that much for that price has to be a steal.

i hope its not just a repaint, but i guess it will be for sure because they wouldnt waste a mold on a 500 production run.

i ordered one. if i dont like it im sure i can just resell it anyways... low risk.
Outsider4Life
instantly pre-ordered. What could be better, you get a Fansproject figure and help some kids have a Happy Christmas at the same time. it's a win win for everyone.
eriku
SO. MUCH. AWESOME.
Donation? Win.
Chromedome? Win.
Repaint of Chromedome? Still win.

I just think its hilarious that its presented as a mystery although his head is clearly shown on the box.
Demonss
FP and BBTS?? Absolutely.. preordered!
Whatever this figure is (like it or not) can stand next to blesser!

I just hope that BBTS with their awesome preorder policy doesn't let people back out of this one.
chaddicus
Pre-ordered and going to a good cause, no brainer. FP just doesn't lose.
TreKain
What just happened?!? I just preordered a figure sight unseen!! Who does that?! FP has me by the balls...really cant think of any other company I would do this for. The charity part was just icing I guess...
chaddicus
Just curious, where do you find how many have sold and how many are left?

order a huge quantity and it will be limited by how many is left
exomega255
on that note, 334 left
chuckcjc
330 left.

I pre-ordered. I LOVE Chromedome. (looks like his face on the package)

Chromedome and Headmasters >>> Menasor.

Toys for Tots donations must be unoppened toys, so they are expunging their inventory. Win for BBTS, win for everyone.

same here. Still waiting for Menasor...
SPLIT LIP
This seems like a good cause. If I can scrounge the money in time I might just do this.

Are we going to see what it looks like before it's released?

LOL! I was thinking the same thing. Who orders something without seeing it? What is this... Botcon?

I'm in without hesitation!
deliciouspeter
Nice idea. I'd like to see more details on what bbts is actually donating, but whatever.

yeah underprivileged kids will get prime and movie 3 bumblebees this christmas
Cracka J
yeah, face on the box was the kicker. it'll be cool to see those TFT bbts donation pics when they put them up. I didn't donate to any major charities for xmas yet this year, so hopefully that helps whoever needs it. hopefully they can sell out this stock fast.
SPLIT LIP
Dammit. I just remembered what else I'm saving my money for. SRC Volfogg from HLJ. I can't afford both.
Ceerad
Well, if these designs are accurate, Not-Chromedome is the only one with dual scoped rifles.

That and Chromedome's head is on the package, so Chromedome.
