    Aside from stopping by to advertise the fact i have a Scanner Drone for sale over in Fan Art...



    ...I want that Cyclonus. And the Rocklord. The Meltdown really i couldn't care less about, but the other two sound awesome. Of course, i'm like most other people: It's a lot of box art, and no prototype pics. And that doesn't work for me. Right now, it just looks like a place to hope and then ultimately despair. I hope they come out with some stuff, but my breath isn't being held just yet. :( 

    Did i mention the Rocklord is awesome? It is. :)

    DO you know what I think we are looking at? Of course you don't so I will tell you.

    This is some highschool kids Computer Graphics or Business class assignment.

    The grammer is weak and it just seems so formulated.

    As much as I want this to be real, I highly doubt it.

    Mr Wyatt just plotzed until he died, rolled over twice, rose back from the dead and now is plotting a new game to play called Resident Lawsuit.

    Intersting. Hopefully the toy designs show better attention to detail than the boxes. Even for quick mockups, they're bad. I wouldn't show stuff that rough publicly.

    But why conform to this niche mentality? It's been until only recently that new third parties are trying their hand at these Animated toys. Meanwhile, 90% of everything else was G1 and Classics. There are tons of people craving for more Animated than a G1 comic by Simon Furman. How could they possibly turn down that kind of untapped market?

    They can still totally do it.

    One guy alone built an Animated Omega Supreme from scratch. Not using parts cobbled from other toys. Straight up from SCRATCH. Third Parties can do this quicker and better. It will be a lot easier to do than recreating Devastator and will arguably sell better, too.

    I'm calling fake. To use published/licensed artwork and real names is a terrible risk that a legit company would not do.

    Nothing 3rd parties do is legit.

    I don't think this is real at all.

    BUT...if any 3rd party decided to make figures of on screen Animated characters they would sell like wild fire. The only thing though would be that they can't take design liberties. Animated's brilliance was in their unique designs.

    The constructicons would be epic. Use the three from the show and then base the other 3 on that piece of fan art we got long ago. I would be all over that BULLDOG figure.

    Nobody is making anything. This is some school kids project that has blown way out of proportion.

    But to all the third party groups out there....check out the hype a 3rd party animated figure from the show will get hinthint

    Cyclonus? Only if we get Strika and Spittor as well.



    But I can't wait to see what other 3rd party Animated stuff they make.

    I've always wanted a leader Omega Supreme and leader Lugnut. Kinda pissed they didn't make them tbh....It would make sense for both to be of the same wave too. There will always be some trace of hope that they put some new animated in the generations line or something

    Because? Unfortunately IP laws are not governed by the our feelings what's ethical or not but by strict legal rules.

    Recasting existing parts, using logos, names and any other trademarks is illegal (again lots depends on the local vs. international laws). Creating a green and yellow bot that transforms into a copter is perfectly legal and you wouldn't win a single lawsuit against it.

    This thread's just swimming in IP breaches.

    I kind of agree. While I love the looks of this Animated stuff, the overall amount of third-party unofficial Transformers product is becoming overwhelming. I feel like half of the news updates on the front page now are non-licensed products.

    Oh looky! http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...epet-yet-another-new-third-party-company.html
    I'll be honest, my only 3rd Party toy is Blesser, and only because that was for a good cause. I don't plan on getting any 3rd Party item unless it's Animated :)
