    I think one of them could do with a different panel on the leg to make them monster legs look less the same.
    He would also benefit from more monster mode wing and neck articulation.

    Also those hip flaps are often such a breakage risk on toys - I think there should be a way to avoid that such as hinging them on a pivot inside the crotch so they can move in more degrees and out and forwards as well pivot up and back.

    They conform to the leg better then for posing and have a reduced risk of breakage.
    The head isn't great it's a bit to static looking could benefit from a articulated neck and more joints in it in general.
    It looks like the beast legs might be a bit limited in motion too - a good range of movable joints makes for a more fun toy - I'd not like to pay a premium for a oversized brick of a toy really. And the articulation is very limited looking.

    I hope he has a good range of tilt in his robot head - the only other improvement I'd suggest is individual moveable monster mode fore-paws.

    Overall he's quite handsome though especially in robot mode - I just feel you want the monster mode to shine a bit more in terms of play value.

    So what's the deal with these figures? Are they considered MP scale?

    Theoretically they are MP scale...but since they are monsters anyway I think they should fit in with my CHUG shelves just fine (same with the FP Targetmasters since they aren't Earth vehicles :)  )

    Fansproject Headmasters ?
    I have been thinking of making them my chug monsterbots myself, but 22 cm really is big, if they had been 2 cm it would be less of an issue.

    I was thinking of the upcoming Sureshot :)  but the Headmasters aren't any different to me...scale of Earth vehicles bugs me occasionally, but off world vehicles and creatures can be pretty much any size and still fit.

    If he doesn't shoot sparks out of his mouth, this project is dead to me.

    These guys look so good! Don't care about monsterbots but I'll definitely be paying attention if this company takes a stab at someone I do like.
