    I wish they would offer their Steel Core trailer again at a decent price.

    Ha, I was wondering if they'd ever get around to doing this. Even if the figures aren't available, having a full listing to peruse is nice. Looks like it's mostly complete, too, I see a few Function X figures missing, and the latest Saurus figures, but it's mostly all there.

    The list prices they have for the exclusives aren't bad, either... I'll have to check their site later this afternoon and see what's actually available.

    Maybe this will finally be the Fansproject store we've hoped it would be? Or should I not get my hopes up?

    What this means to me is, if your running low on funds at a convention and had to pick. Pick the other as it seems you will likely have another chance to purchase the "convention only" exclusives from Fansproject.

    I saw that and assumed it was because I wasn't logged in but you can also click that button that says 'Product not available' so I don't even know what it means.

    Either way, it's about what I would expect from FPC.

    I see they still haven't figured out an inexpensive way to sell that Dino shell...

    I see this as 100% money grab, and not inability to bring it to market at a lower price.

    Free shipping makes it

    I understand you Americans with your online stores that offer this all the time don't understand how rare this is for us Aussies, but it is rare. And valuable

    What are they supposed to do with convention overstock?

    FPC has stated its intention to sell convention only figures through their online store. It's just that no one believed it would actually happen, so most people bought them elsewhere. It's good to know, though.

    also they took like six months do it

    plus they never officially announced it, all we got was hearsay from convention people

    so again, good job undermining yourself, FPC

    Is this the first official naming of M3 as Intimidator? Everyone always called it that based on early rumors/info but IIRC it was never actually listed as such.

    I notice their list is actually incomplete. It doesn't have the Insecticons from the TFsource 3pack, or the Swindle/Blast-Off redecoes. Heck - the Dinoforce isn't on there either for that matter, just the shell, and the original release of Code, their Skullcruncher, Smartrobin, and Quickswitch are also missing.

    Still... who else looked at that and went "good god, I own most of the stuff pictured here?"

    Warcry and Flameblast are on the Causality page instead of the crossfire page, unless you meant the re-releases of the original sets.

    I had a "I've owned most of the stuff pictured here" moment, if that counts. I still have a lot of Fansproject figures, but I've sold a good amount of mine, too.

    I did just order the Diaclone versions of Columpio and Volar. I wasn't quite ready to pay the ebay markup for them, then I found a good deal on Cubrar, lost some bidding wars for Columpio and figured I'd just hunt them down eventually. But that price was decent enough that it was worth saving the headache of trying to scour ebay all the time.

    Also, maybe it will show them there's enough interest to make the site worth maintaining as an active store / catalog / blog? It'd be nice to have a place to regularly get exclusives and such.

    Kuma, are you doing the photos for them? I thought the style looked familiar but wasn't sure.

    Whoever's doing it, the shots are great. There are a lot in there that really pop. The Glacialord ones in particular really jump out, maybe it's the color scheme on the white backdrop or something.
