Looks good. The shoulders worry me a little and I don't like the fact he didn't mention a wrist swivel.

After watching the review I think I found a way to make a more Shrapnel-like robot mode. Just take two of the full claws and connect them inside the Shuriken device facing inward and then attach it to the back.

While I like the majority of the look of these figures, what good are metal chomping Insecticons who don't actually have mouths? I know, I know. Bombshell never had a mouth. But Shrapnel and Kickback did! I really wish they had given these guys heads that looked as much like their G1 heads (with slight improvements) like they did with their bodies.

Compared to what perfect effect charges for their tiny little figures this is nothing.With that price comes fansprojects signature quality and epic design.Way more bang for your buck..

Causality isn't a combiner, the non-secticons are stand alones. Crossfire is the combiner fp line

I was worried as well. Other pictures reveal that he has an upper forearm ball joint.

Awesome figure. :shock: Me Grimlock is very horny now, after this Video. =P~ Still waiting for the parcel. Hope Fans Project is trying to create a "Slipstream" homage figure, cause Hasbro and Takara seems to be unable to do that. Deluxe Size please! Grimlock over and out.

Anyway, looks awesome. The bug mode is a little silly, but the originals were too. The bot modes for these guys are sweet, and I can't wait to add them to my neo G1 display. Out of the three of these, I think I'm looking forward to Kickback (ahem, Backfiery) the most. He just looks totally badass.

I'm getting a little worried. I've got mine pre-ordered with RobotKingdom and there doesn't seem to be any sign of it arriving. Add to that the fact that they've still got prototype pictures and the absence of listings for Stormbomb and Backfiery, I'm starting to wonder if there's not much love between FansProject and RobotKingdom.
