Didn't FP hint at a Venom figure at TFCon?

They only spoke in maybes during TFCon to my understanding.


Interesting. I didn't know. Thanks

Saw last night on TFSource's Twitter that the Armored Battallion set is en route to the warehouse now. It is scheduled to arrive in 4 - 10 days, the wait is nearly over.

That would be really cool if true. And makes my pre-order worth that much more. w00t, FP!

*update* went back and looked at the listing of TFSource. There is no specification that this set comes with these weapons, but the promo pictures show each figure with a black-molded weapon.

Since I've bundled my order with the mini-cyclops figure, I'm going to be waiting a while longer for mine I'm afraid.

Got mine today. They are truly awesome. And yes they do come with an extra set of weapons for your regular insecticons. Identical to the black ones that come in the box, not chrome or silver.

Wow.

So when does FP do a run of the G1 colors with G1 style guns and G1 style pincers????

They probably can't do that as the people who bought the originals would be PO'd I suppose? Oh well.

Shouldn't Barrage be called Blockade and ChopShop called Teardown? Seems ass backwards too me the way FP named em. At least Plunder makes sense. They probably did it just too drive me nuts. :BANG_HEAD:

Oh well.....lookin forward to gettin mine.

Thrilled to hear they come with an extra set of weapons for the Ninsecticons.

It's the little things like that which truly make them shine over other 3rds.

Anyone have comparison shots yet? I'd love to see how they compare with the old G1 versions.

Also hoping they put out the fourth missing deluxe insecticon, and a ret-con G1 colored version. I'd be all over that like bugs on a wheat field.... that is tasty, but a little heavy on the electrons.

Oh. I can confirm the bonus black weapons as well. Huge props for that. The bots look fantastic in person. Really, I think these guys outshine the G1 version. They're more spot on to those molds.

I think with revised pincers, wings, heads... the others could be improved immensely. I hope FansProject or someone makes some chrome, G1 style accessories.

Heres some comparison shots for robot mode. I havent transformed them yet. I gotta study the reviews since it's been a while. Also if they dont want to design a new mold for Venom, they can use the Kickback/Ransack mold to do a retool/repaint and it would probally work.

Thanks for the comparison shots! I have no clue where my G1 ones are.

While the robot mode passes okay for Venom, the robot mode is completely different. I'd totally rather have a new mold.

I think knowing everyone would want to complete the set, and with obvious black/purple repaint value, they're safe in knowing it would sell well enough to warrant developing one.

Like you guys, I'm sure everyone else is hoping for a set of gray/silver pincers and accessories. (ie. repaints of the ones that came with the repaint set.)

Those two changes to the Bombshell and Shrapnel mold make a huge step making it more G1. That and some silver wings for kickback, and we're nearly there. Heh.

You could do a Venom color version, a G1 bug color... plus a third retool with a new head as G1 Waspinator!

My set just arrived today and they are so great. I think they are better than the original black and purple paint schemes. The Kickback mold would have worked as Venom. I hope they make him to finish the set.
