    Yeah ravage was a big cat. That's the problem with bot scale toys vs alt scale toys. Separate shelves so it's fine with me.

    That's the idea, yeah.

    I need to find all my cassettes at some point. Haven't seen them since we moved some five or six years ago, and now my toys are using my tape deck as a second display shelf...

    To borrow a baseball metaphor:
    Fans Hobby is batting 1.000 -- every figure they've made are at least solid doubles if not home runs, as far as I'm concerned. Not a single swing-and-a-miss in their entire history.

    Especially if the Geoff Senior stickers are optional (sorry, I know he has a lot of fans, but his style isn't my cup of tea).

    Thanks. I wholeheartedly love the DW Bruticus kit. The Defensor one is hit or miss. I'll have to pay attention to these two - I like the thicker thighs in principle, but I'm not sure if that's how I want them implemented.

    No problem! I'm actually just getting the Superion set for the hands/feet and selling off the chest/thigh/etc. parts.

    Speaking of Superion, the KO OS CW one has the limb bots going for $35 each at the con!! Can anyone confirm what Silverbolt costs?

    :lol  I was about to write something similar. So far all 3P Springers have a weird facial expression...

    I can understand if one needs these OM cassettes as stand alone pieces because they look really cool, but they all don't fit at all with the current MP scale. Maybe they work with the MPP figures or MP01...

    Ah, Fansprojects is making kiddie dino toys now. So I guess this is their way of saying that Dinobot Pinchar (Snarl) will never see the light of sales.

    Or like someone trying to fight while squinting from holding their breath because there's a malodorous stench nearby.

    Does anyone know what these figures are? The Skyfire/Jetfire looks neat, but I'm more interested in that Prime...

    still annoyed they keep calling the ocular casseticons 1:1 when they\'re supposed to be minicassettes to begin with, so they\'re much bigger than 1:1

    Hay, did you guys see that awesome Fansproject display with a ton of new product announcements and finally their Snarl?!

    Yeah me either. :lol  :( 

    Pretty sure the aim is to deliver proper sized botmodes, which was completely missing from the Masterpiece cassettes. Now we have a right-sized Ravage and soon the Frenzy/Rumble twins. The birds are a bit large, granted, but the others are pretty much perfectly sized.

    "There's still the panel," he said, sounding desperately like he was trying to convince himself more so than someone else

    And in FP's defense, that's The Chosen Prime's display to sell the shells - it's not like FP announced they'd be here (or announced, well, anything).

    EDIT: found it on Third Party Unlimited FB page:

    22045797_1097222723746905_7029307574076693747_n.jpg

    We need more pics of this bad boy.

    What's going on with the Geoff Senior text on the Fans Hobby G2 Prime trailer? Did they actually license some Geoff Senior art? Did they get him to draw them new art?

    If so....awesome. But....is his name actually going to be on the toy? It's hideous.
