    I might be out of the loop here... But what combiner has Fansproject released? Please don't tell me that you're referring to Maketoys.

    I'm interested to see where this goes. Herc is out of my price range for now but I hope to get the next BIG project. Who knows, if all this works out well we may get a Fort Max or Overlord out of them :D !!! Funny thing is it may even be cheaper then a original!

    You know what?...if you were talking about Menasor or Defensor, I would seriously prefer that..that would almost be as close to perfectly real world scaled with Herc as you could get...though these legend sized bots better be just as awesome as the big bots...

    I'd like to see iGear make a mini-bots combiner with the existing chartacters. Brawn as the body, Bumblebee, Windcharger, Cliffjumper and Gears as limbs.

    isn't it the opposite? The not-defensor and Combining-Dinobots-For-Some-Reason are (TFC) StarCats, and these other sketches are TFC?

    As far as I know, StarCats was commissioned under TFC. So those are all under TFC's umbrella.

    That's what I thought (why I put TFC in parenthesis before SC), but S250 is making it sound like even Computron/Abominus are StarCats, and that TFC are working on something other than that as well. Or maybe it's just me being dumb. :D

    I will pretend you two haven't heard the rumour (comfirmed by insiders) that FansProject will be releasing Menasor. And original mould combiner so no FP does not only piggy back.

    As for why I want it done by FP? I like the Manga spin FP puts on figures and I think this spin will work extremely well with the Terrorcons. I believe it will be done so well that this will be a set that will be desired for the alt modes.


    S250 is a well respected insider. I don't get what he is saying but it is always best to believe the insiders. They never feed us crap info.

    No we are referring to the up coming Menasor. He was referring to Bruticus with the upgrading an already made combiner comment.

    That's why I asked instead of just assuming he was wrong.

    That's right... I posted "RELEASED" and not to be released. Fansproject has not released any combiners only upgrades, so far.

    Come on. With FP's track record do you really think they will put out a crap combiner?

    Going by what FP has produced and what people who have seen the designs say, I am confident that Menasor will be a figure people swoon over.

    I don't get why everyone has a hard on for fansproject, yes they make good figures but are they any better than Hercules, mmc KMC, and PE SFX. Before anyone says anything about design flaws remember warbot can't stand up, my balljoints and ratchets on anything fansproject are loose as hell because the plastic has worn down, and alot of people broke the blades on thundershread because of tolerances. With all this said I do like fansproject and they make good products but other companies have made products that are comperable or better. That's my two cents, and im not looking for an argument I just want to know why there is this hype.

    FP has their weaknesses just like everyone else. what comes immediately to mind is how they missed the mark on two of the three insecticon heads. i want insecticons, not quasi-insecticons.

    I wish they had used better plastic for warbot because he is an awesome toy but every single joint is floppy loose on mine, I do love CC and protector though
