    He said the last 3 are not combiners. Doesn't mean the 1st two wont have the combiner accessibility. But i doubt the the retools will come with any of the C3 accessories. Plus, without all of the C3 stuff they can probably give us a lower price point.
    Lastly I wouldn't mind seeing Munitioner/Explorer molds being used again to match the TFCC's Nexus Prime.

    HOLY CRAP.

    Growl was my absolute FAVORITE Transformer when I was a little boy. I took that damn thing everywhere in my pocket. He was a micromaster with a relatively giant gun! When Munitioner came out, I seriously considered buying one to make into a custom Growl...now I don't have to. I never thought I'd see an update of that Transformer, this is amazing.

    I really hope they sell the accessories the ex-non combaticons remolds come with separately. My Transformers "need more gun"!

    Definitely Battle Gaea which is hundred times awesome.

    Makes sense giving the fact that Battle Gaea was a Japanese exclusive and Fans Project is a Japanese company......I think feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    It looks like a double homage know that I see the resemblance to Fireshot and Growl

    Yes, but there's no indication it has anything to do with the Energon Constructicons.

    This.

    I still think Fansproject is in the process of making their own original combiner though. The Glacialbot that was shown at TFcon last year.

    I should just give FP my bank account info. They make me want characters I've never heard about before

    YAY!!!

    These are great molds on their own and definately deserve to be seen uncombined, as well as given the lower price point and the possibility of more great stuff, that follows the classic transformer boxiness that has been ruined by Bay, I still give Hasbro props for the recent releases, but these FANSPROJECT offerings look perfect.

    In fact, outright denied by Venksta. Who again has inside knowledge.


    For the foreseeable future, FansProject won't touch Devastator with a 10-foot pole, because they don't want to step on TFClub's toes. And beyond that, they're still not likely to touch it because the toys aren't easily attainable any more.

    Despite the track record so far, Crossfire is not intended to be a Combiner sub-line. It's their catch-all for projects originating outside the core FansProject team, their "Partner Projects" line.

    It's obviously Elita-1, Arcee, and that other motorcycle chick.

    OK ALL 20 PAGES done. Things I have noticed...

    FIRST AND FOREMOST People do not read more than the first few and last few posts. I would even doubt the first few.

    It has been mentioned by known insiders that this is not a combining team. I am sure there will be little changes made to Munition and Explorer but none of these changes will effect there ability to combine. What will effect said ability is the fact that this set will not come with all the parts needed for combination.

    Also if you read what others have posted I am convinced that these two guys have nothing to do with that GAIA character and are indeed FIREBLAST AND GROWL. Growl being the biggest giveaway because of the white turret.

    Things I hope for/predict

    -Seeing as Explorer and Munition will not come with thier combining pieces thier $50 price tag will drop to at least $35 although I would assume lower.

    - The three blacked out figures look a lot like Pre Earth Insecticons.

    - I hope these figures can be purchased individually because I have no interest in offscreen characters so I don't desire Flameblast and Warcry.

    - I am sure despite the Engrish Causailty Should read Casuality not Causality.

    -Many mentioned that Munition and Explorer are awesome in robot mode but are doomed to spend their lives as limbs. I agree with this so I would love to see FP release these guys in orignial colours minus the attachments so we can get these guys for $30 instead of $50 and have a lot of unused parts.

    All in all it is always exciting to get knews from FP and I look forward to seeing more.

    Thanx

    if they are getting individual and non combiner release I expect some sort of added gimmick or extra posability, or just extra accessories

    Actually the biggest giveaway is that their names are synonyms.

    I dunno. "Causality" makes a bit more sense than "Casualty" in this case. Unless you mean to imply that these are meant to be generics destined for the scrapheap.

    no combiner parts = instant skip. I just don't have any time for fan toys that don't deliver when they could so easily do so
