The hills are alive with the sound of music
Loving the Defender design. This is Springer, this is what Hasbro could not be bothered to do. The alt-modes are interestingly different, the jointing is well thought out (did you notice the hamstring swivel for poseability). I do wonder about the pricing, but figure I'll get it anyway.
The Bruticus teaser is a bit confusing, mostly because some of those limbs don't look they're from the Universe/Energon/Movie combiner. My gut tells me Fansproject is desiging a more complex set than I dare imagine. Personally, the Bruticus mold already my favorite, counting the upgraded Superion (through no fault of Fansproject, design issues are with the original build).
I know Hasbro was pretty po'd about FansProject making figures
Well, yes and no. Officially, they said they don't mind the 3rd party stuff, but that was back when it was upgrade sets and kits that encouraged people to own the core toy. For one thing, I'm sure moving to full figures is probably garnering some attention because it might steal their thunder. Secondly, they also said passing the $100 mark would be a red flag, but Fansproject hasn't announced anything yet.
