    Wow late to the party. It's neat but these aren't my favorite set - mostly due to Motormaster. I actually really like the limbs and the combined mode. The scale also kind of sucks with today's figures.

    I was also hoping for their Apeface when a re-done render/transformation vid surfaced. SIgh... love their aesthetic and scale.

    It's up on A3U right now :)

    I believe it was their Monstructor repaint of Dinoking, though it could have possibly been Snarl. I didn't get either so I can't remember which order they released. It's just that other that the A3U G2 Stunticons those are the only releases I know of since FP hit their sudden decline.

    Wowee! Fansproject. Haven’t thought about them for a while.
    I recall getting two right shoulders with my Shadow Commander. I emailed Fansproject about it, but they never replied. Naturally that experience left me feeling sour towards the company until they eventually faded away.
    Still they made some pretty awesome stuff back in their early days. Their G3 trailer absolutely rules.

    I don't do crowdfunding, but I would to get their Hardhead. As much as I love the toon accurate MPs these days, I still love the charm of Fansproject's stylized figures.

    While others are hating on FP Stunticons, I have them in triplicate. Sextuplicate even (not pictured: my sixth Car Crash on my desk at work)

    I see your alt-mode Breakdown has Reprolabels. Don't ever transform it, the hood stickers won't survive more than about two times. (they look awesome, but sadly there's not even a paper-thin amount of clearance---I even sanded the corners down on mine a bit to try to make it work)

    I would crowdfund the hell for them to release just one more set of figures from the RETRO-FUTURE LINE :(  Hell , even one or 2 ..... so glad to see this.

    100% yes, I would easily go for them at Soul of Chogokin prices without even thinking about it. Especially Hardhead. But I'm down for any of them - Horrorcons, Headmaster Jr's, whichever way they want to go. I like FP's Solerons too - I'd totally buy just little targetmasters for my SS86 figures. Put the preorder up or the kickstarter for any of this and I'm in day 1.

    I love that line so much. Code, in particular is just a joy to transform and handle. If I were to try to explain this hobby to someone who didn't understand it, I'd probably put that toy in their hands.

    I ordered the entire set it the minute he dropped. I'm not a fan of the G2 color scheme but I love the FP Stunticons.

    I try and buy official when I can and even though Intimidator is the embodiment of overengineering, I kept this over the CW one. I couldn't stand the way that looks.

    I love the Intimidator combined mode. I abhor M3's transformation, but this looks great.

    Happy to see FP back.

    Looking at my collection, the FP I have happily over official:

    FP Broadside
    Intimidator
    Headmasters Brainstorm, Weirdwolf, Chromedome, Highbrow, Skullcruncher, and Mindwipe.
    FP Dinobots
    G3 Trailer (Love this thing)
    I have the FP Insecticons but have the official Hasbro and Taktomy LG ones as well since they all can be used for troop building.

    There's an option to preorder without having to pay upfront.

    I saw those and earlier today and thought it was a typo. Probably just selling off the FP leftovers.
