    Wow! I think Rodimus and Springer looks bad-ass! I hope Springer is at least the size of Optimus Prime?!

    Now I have to shop around for a classic Rodimus.

    I can sum it up in two words: "bad" and "ass" :D 

    Or perhaps "Holy" and "crap" would do just as well

    ok, this is what i got from speaking directly to the FansProject guys (btw very awesome guys to talk to) warbot IS broadside, i asked who it was, and he said think autobot riple changer, said broadside and got a yes answer, mini megs are not going to be released because it comes too close to the actual design and they don't want any copyright infringement. superion upgrade VERY limited release moreso than anything else, G3 trailer the panels you see on the sides all open to reveal mirrors (looks very nice btw) to explain where primes trailer goes for stealth mode. being as they only had the resin prototype there they only did the stealth mode for a minute, wish i had a cam lol trailer should be released in july, superion add-ons in june, the "springer" is set for later this year, protector should be in september, warbot by the end of the year same as collector, no tentative release date for glacial-bot yet

    Mini Megs was too close huh? Well that's understandable even though it really does suck still, ah well.

    they do not set their prices, they generally leave bbts and the rest of the retailers to set the prices for themselves, so don't blame them for the price gouging, blame the retailers

    Yeah, the only one that they ever locked the price on was City Commander. From there I don't think they have locked in the price with the retailers.

    yeah, and just to say it again, these guys are awesome to talk to, if you ever get the chance, stop by and have a conversation with them, do it, they are very passionate about their products, and any money they make is put right back into the next project, they all work full time and this is just a hobby for them, when they found out i had the city commander from day 1, they were very happy and said thank you, so they are also very humble people, which is nice to see when they have gotten so much fame already. i will gladly buy all their upgrades and figures.

    Maybe Hasbro will buy a clue and absorb these guys as a project team for establishing a U.S. "Collector" product line. That'd be sweet.

    Am I the only one who thinks there's WAY more to protector? Th trailer looks so large for so little armor of a tiny figure.... Does anyone think it has a base in there too, like his original toy?

    anyway, I will pre-order all of these (except maybe broadside.... and the superion upgrade, planned to skip him in general. will definitely skip glacial until more images.) the second BBTS has them up. Though I still need to pre-order G3 trailer... and catch up on the classics I missed (Wheelie, Mirage, Ramjet, Japan/botcon seekers, bumblebee, cliffjumper, red alert, Optimus Prime [I know, right? I chose magnus at the time because he was on sale at Target.... smartest choice of my life, as I like henkei prime better], shadow commander + nemmy set).

    Thank you fansproject for making my wallet scream in pain. (not to mention movie 2 toys....)

    Superion set is great, I hope I can get one pre-ordered quick enough.
    Springer, Broadside, Wreckgar, and the Hot-Rod addon are all must-haves too. Now if only we can get the rest of the movie bots it will be great.

    Not too excited about the glacial bots though, I'll have to see more of that before I can make a decision on it.
