Fansproject/Retailers y u no put up Stunticon pre-orders yet

I don't really care about these; I was disappointed by Chromedome so I'm just going to save money and pass on everything else in this line.

Weird names... Is this available through other retailers or just bbts?
exomega255
if you get doubles, can they be repainted into anything?

I'm sure TFSource will have pre-orders up soon as well as some other retailers.

Placed a preorder for Wierdwolf and Brainstorm. I still don't like Brainstorm but something about that group shot made me cave. I may end up canceling the preorder once color shots show up though.
Zambot
Pre-ordered!

Ehhh, you've got Toy Deco, US Toon Deco, and Japanese Toon Deco...but those'd all be pretty subtle.

FP slapped (hopefully for giggles) SonicBomber's deco on Brainstorm, and it looked pretty nice....I don't think it'd fit quite as well in robot mode though...and he's not a Headmaster.....

The Optimus-Gator repaint is almost good enough to deserve a full release, hope he gets one...

Preordered Brainstorm. I might drop when color pics hit. He needs to be able to pass for my MTMTE Brainstorm. I'ma even make him a briefcase.

Yeah the molds looks pretty good so I was looking for an excuse =.=

Crap, April and May might mean that my Fort Max preorder is doomed. At least they're both Headmasters!

As for the names, I think they're cute.
Quadruple U = 2 double-Us - WeirdWolf

Yes while the Voltron Lions are cool I just think that the wolf head coulda been pulled off better but I guess it's no worse than the original.
CodeXCDM
...so the standard price is ~70 for each after all... BLAH
charsdc2
Man, Weirdwolf looks awesome!
bagofshhh

possibly but maybe not by much. less than 200 in stock so seems like a warehouse find or very limited 2nd run. meanwhile over 1000 available for each of brain and wolf.

Is anyone else looking at their preorder page and thinking HOLY CRAP THAT'S A LOT O CASH!!!!
grimlock1972
May have to pass on these for now as my budgeting isn't gonna allow for them damn it.

and April is the worst with for max coming out that month.

I will get them some how.
Demonss
Love the naming of Brainstorm to Smart Robin (It's an anagram)..

But Quadruple U.. Where did that come from?
Stygian360
Aaaaaaaaand ordered. With the uber quickness.
Felixman
Nice doggy... come to Papa!

Might get the others. Sorta on the fence...

AHHHHHHH that makes sense.
JoeHavok
Pre ordered all 3. Decided to cancel a couple of preorders to help out some. My pre order page on BBTS is the biggest I've ever seen it. I can't wait for those FP Stunticons!
SurlyJ
Well I had no intention of getting X-1, but since the rave reviews And more at regular price, I'll give it a shot. Worse case if I hate it I can sell it and potentially still make a few bucks as always seems to be the case with FP stuff, even rereleases.

Ordered X-2 and X-3 too, which look much cooler to me than X-1. We'll have to see if I cancel though, those summer months are quickly getting bloated and I don't have as much work during the summer.
warhokie
Done and Done... Code is way too sweet not to pick up these 2 as well.. though the names are kinda meh.
BLOODRAGED189
Do these things go up or down in price in time?
Demonss
notably for anyone who didn't like codes arms.. probably need not apply here, it doesn't look like these ones (unless there's some crazy joints built in) will be able to make a "T" shaped pose either.

Fansproject has a tendancy to go up in time.
Most of their stuff will eventually come available again (it's happened with just about every release), but then after they disappear from the stores their value seems to go back up (perhaps not quite as high as it was prior though).
notably City commander doesn't fetch the prices he used to, of course there's tons of knock offs out there too.

I did the math, and my page averages out to $100/month... Not too shabby. Just have to take my lunch to work for 2/3 of the month, for the rest of the year... Blah.
