    Maybe you're past the sooner than we think point..
    I'm not.
    If it comes out within the next 6 mo then it's sooner than I think. I fit comes out a year from now then I agree we're past that point.

    I'll always go for fansproject regardless of how long it takes because of their reputation. Something I can't say about companies that pump out garbage.

    I had two Thundershreds with incorrect blades. One Stormbomb with a crack right in the middle of its face, and two Backfiery's with a break in the yellow backpack where the insect legs connect. They're pumping out something.

    I'm not going to treat Fansproject like a favorite band of mine that blew everyone away with their awesome early albums. But then with each new record I have to keep justifying to myself why they're still awesome even though in my gut I know they don't rock as hard as they used to. If they want my money they have to do a little better. Why should I keep spending my money on their supposed not-homages when there's things like Cyclops, Hexatron, MP Soundwave, Sideswipe, and SDCC Bruticus on the horizon, along with a whole line of Generations? I'm not trying to bash Fansproject, I'm just saying I expect more and from them. Maybe they could spend a little less time trying to create a universe and a website and a little more time making toys.

    That sucks you had so many problems, I had none of those issues, aside from the wrist blades of thundershred needing a little work to keep those issues from occurring (blade breakage), that I had to take care of.


    I'm excited about a number of things too.. Official products I'll almost always buy over the 3rd party stuff (would have bought the MP coneheads from hasbro before igear if they just made them..) but certain things like hexatron and cyclops as much as I'd like them but their company is relatively new to the game. For example, as much as i like my Xovergen grand patriot, I don't know if I'll be getting PMOP knowing some of the issues i've seen with it.

    Also comparing fans project to has/tak isn't really fair. Because has/tak puts out more than most 3rd party companies combined.. We've been waiting on hexatron for quite some time now also. We've seen stuff from Mastermind creations, but haven't had a release since the train prime (and it's recolorings) so it's not like their release times are THAT vastly different.

    That's true. I really can't compare 3rd party groups to Hasbro and Takara. With their limited resources those groups are doing the best they can. Let me substitute Green Giant for SDCC Bruticus. I think I just want Fansproject to put some stuff out before I run out of money!

    Well this I can't argue about.
    The only thing with Green giant is that I know Maketoys has had some help from FP with their endevors at least somewhat.. So maybe that makes you a bit more content.

    I too wouldn't mind some fansproject stuff to put the crunch on my wallet before some of the other things that are coming.. I feel like I've been waiting for Igear's ratchet and ironhide for way longer than I have any FP release though.
    I mean seriously.. what's the hold up there!
