    I know FP made Defender (Springer) and had mentioned making more at one point, i think Broadside. But given that the only thing i've heard maybe coming from them are Stunticons, think we'll get more? Broadside, Sandstorm, and Blitzwing still havent gotten new toys lol.

    They apparently showed prototypes of Broadside before. Would prefer them to do Blitzwing and Sandstorm first though

    No prototypes. It was just a silhouetted teaser portrait.

    I hope not. FP has nice designs that tempt me, but WBD burned me with its soft plastic that refuses to accept super glue for maintenance.

    Hasbro staff specifically said no more Triple Changers on the near horizon.

    Defender, as wonderful as it is, is old now. I'm sure Fansproject's next warbot will be more classics style and made of similar materials to the crossfire line.

    I hope we hear something of warbot early next year though. I'ma gettin impatient!

    I hope to see more warbots but I really want a generations springer and the other triple changers.

    That was several years ago now. I wouldn't be surprised if they made another in the next CHUG line after the movie line dies a slow, horrible, shelf warming death like RotF is STILL doing in some places.
