    Yeah, ok, transformers can never exist and make no sense. I can suspend belief because science fiction is enjoyable. But only to a point where things aren't absolutely ******ed. There has to be some grounds of common sense before things get too stupid to be worthwhile. Truck to giant robot, cool, it ends up a big robot because the truck is big. A transformer that more than quadruple's it size between alt modes with no plausible explanation other that "it can" is too silly for me to take seriously. Handgun Megatron and tapedeck Soundwave are similar. Otherwise, why aren't the transformers just all transform to combiner size robot modes and duke it out that way?

    Maybe everyone should be able to inexplicably fly again. After all, they did so in G1.

    No...
    Fansproject notoriously puts out teasers a long time in advance.. It took YEARS for protector to launch..

    That being said..

    I don't understand why people don't like seeing previews so far ahead of time.. Gives me a reason to set money to the side..

    Personally my wallet welcomes better planning.

    Makes sense. Personally I would prefer they stay hush hush about it rather than deny any relation. I just don't want them dishing out lines of bullshit. I expect better from Fansproject.

    Actually I don't think they will. To them, Assaulter is part of the Fansprojectcore project, and his "story is in the works", as they say in teaser. Period. They'll neither advertise him as a TF homage, neither deny he is one.
    They're playing their own game by now.

    Entirely different. All we knew was a concept sketch of ideas. It's different than having a feasible prototype, making a big deal about it, throwing up and offering preorders, and still not being delivered over a year later. See Igear Ironhide and Ratchet.

    I think I'll wait until I see a prototype or final before I decide on this guy, but he looks promising.

    This is where the problem lies, buddy, it's all relative? What if I require explanation about how the the allspark came to be and why does it give life and so forth to me that is as wacky as mass-shifting is to you without any plausible explanation! See what I just did there?

    The point is you came across as condescending with that tone, "leave that nonesense in G1" as if to say, yes, the other incarnations are far more realistic because there is no mass shifting but still magical, inexplicable rocks involved, of course. Ridiculous, but in you defense I really don't know what those guys are expecting coming to an FP toy reveal and complaining about G1 likeness or lack of it, since when did FP ever give us toon accurate versions of character like the MP line did and does!

    I'm still feeling burned out enough from TFC Hercules to pull the plug on 3rd party and collecting all together but FP still manages to keep me engaged. If there is only one 3rd party that I will continue to buy it will be FansProject.

    I had something entirely typed out, but it's was not my intention and not worth arguing over the internet over something so stupid as toy fiction. I meant no ill when I said "nonsense stays in G1." G1 has a lot of silly things in it. I thought that was the retro charm? I don't care for it, but I didn't mean it as an insult to anything. My bad.

    FP in the past have shown they don't disregard scale. In their Crossfire set they had not-blastoff updated as a drone and not a full space shuttle. Considering this guy is the triple changer from their concept art the second alt mode is not an aircraft carrier. Also looking at their Warbot streak they aim for more cybertronian stuff, I imagine it's more like a boat than anything.

    Which always keeps me wondering if there is enough for an entire army of Warbots coming after Steelcore and Assaulter. :rolleyes:

    After thinking about it, I think the Warbots are The Wreckers.

    Steelcore - Impactor
    Assaulter - Broadside

    This would allow FP to produce characters like Top Spin, Twin Twist, Roadbuster, and Whirl. All of whom really need an updated "CHUG" aesthetic.

    Brilliant if this turns out to be true.

    I'd like me some Twin Twist and Topspin. And I'd actually consider buying Steel Core if they released him in Impactor colors.
