    This may make me sound dumb, but I probably won't decide until I see what weapons he comes with. I like their Dinoking's cannon, but I'd like to see a different melee weapon.

    On the plus side, I'm glad to see FP is still alive - it still gives me hope for the Function(X) bots I want . . .

    Y'know....these might fit in with my Mech Fans Toys figures.....


    Can anyone with some MFT figures take a few side by side pics with the Dino King version of these guys?

    I'd be up for this if the price was right. Unfortunately that probably means...
    ...this.

    Interested in a Monstructor but I just can't afford to buy combiner parts all at once. Tsk. Shame, as I love the Fansproject aesthetic.

    I got the Dinoking set because of the “whole package” with the shells. No shells here. Hopefully Hasbro will get around to Monstructor in the next line.

    $350? Does Fansproject think we're idiots? That's basically paying full price for each figure, but they're only having to make one package with one shipment from the factory instead of 6 individual releases.

    I've been one of Fansproject's biggest supporters over the years, but they finally lost me on this one. Hopefully @Chosen Prime doesn't get stuck sitting on a bunch of these....

    Dang it... and I thought I was going to be able to avoid buying this set of figures.

    I'd love to own this but.... that is one helluva lousy price. 60$ per fig and these guys are roughly legends scale.... 60$ will buy a two pack of iron factory bots. I just can't justify the cost here.

    EDIT: OK they're not legends scale but I still think $60 is too much, 3P pricing models have never sat right with me.

    Hopefully FP will rethink the price, but is his face different? i wonder if they did a remold. His hands seem to have sharper side spikes as well.

    Dated engineering? The thing is fully integrated and super articulated.

    That's definitely a different face. A little disappointed in ichi (upper torso) being so close to his dinoking version, I expected more yellow on him

    Price seems high considering these dats most etailers can't give the original version away.

    These look good but the molds look a lot like the dlx PotP Terrocon's. So I can't see myself paying $300+.

    So if Hasbro or Takara is on their game for a change, then they already have a Generation's Horrorcon set (and Seacon's) on the horizon.

    Yeah this would have to hit pretty huge reductions for me to double dip on the molds. I liked Dinoking but not enough to buy it twice.

    Uhm.... Maybe?

    It\'s weird because when the Saurus guys dropped I was like MAKE THESE IN MONSTRUCTOR COLORS PLZ and now that they have I\'m kind of underwhelmed.

    Not a fan of the price, but I'll pay it. Been hoping we'd get this for a long time, and I love Monstructor.

    This looks really cool and I love the colors. However, I'm not sure I need a $350 Monstructor in my life. I do think he's a must get for anyone looking to complete their Hastak scaled combiners.

    love my dinoking, so much I bought two sets. however I only buy guys that appear in the cartoon/animation for my kids so I have no interest in this one. With that said, I am really happy for the monstructor fans that have been asking for this.

    Super glad they went with dinoking first though

    I had a couple of them when I was little, so I have a fondness for Monstructor, but don't think I can pull that price. I understand it isn't cheap to make the figures, but I can't just throw $350 out.
