Deadend and Dragstrip look OK in bot mode, but not nearly as sexy as Wildrider and Breakdown (something about that blocky look/square head/wheels on shoulders thing gets me). I can't wait to see Dragstrip and Deadend in their full painted glory in alt mode though (hopefully soon).

Anyway, 2 of Wildrider and Breakdown have now been preordered (so I can have them in bot or alt mode while one of each is in combined mode with Menasor). I'll likely preorder 2 of Deadend for the same reason once he's available.

I can't wait to see Motormaster and of course Menasor.

So, is he an arm instead of a leg? Maybe they will go full on Scramble City on this and make it so any of them can be any limb?

And a thought just occurred to me. Motormaster as a semi offers all sorts of options for storing the combining kibble in the trailer. Hmmm.... :-?

dragstrip looks okay, not sure on dead end though. the first 2 are spot on, but the 2nd lot look like they're from a different line almost. I'm now conflicted. Not by the price though. think it's the same as I paid for the upcoming Explorer and Munitioner repaints

Deadend's chest throws off the set a little. The others resemble their G1 selves except from Deadend. The old digibash of the Wildrider mold in Deadend colours looked better. However, I'm so glad I preordered the first two members of this set. Can't wait to see Motormaster.

I'm beginning to think that this may be the third party combiner that finally shows Hasbro and Takara not only what they should be doing, but also what they *could* be doing, even with their current cost-cutting measures and safety regulations in place with regards to combiners. These guys look like modern Has/Tak product, just done right. These figures aren't massive and don't appear to be overly complex or even covered with tons of paint.

If the set ends up being Scramble City style as well (which I fully expect it will given the pics we've seen so far of Breakdown in both leg and arm mode), then that just reinforces my theory. They're going to accomplish what FoC Bruticus tried to do, but failed miserably at accomplishing.

I don't know why people seem to have a problem with Dragstrip. It's not a female nor two dwarfs in a duck suit ( :-( ) and still has an altmode to die for. I look at it as we're buying a car that turns into an arm that happens to have a botmode.

I'm just glad to retire my HTS Dragstrip from my Season 2 shelf!

I wouldn't have minded if it was a female character. Alt mode will probably be ok. the pics earlier in the thread of the actual vehicle sold me on that. But DS was the one Stunticon I had a kid, and I did quite like his look, in both modes. This robot looks less like a version of the G1 character than a better version of the DOTM Human Alliance guy.
good argument about it being a cool car that transforms into an arm and has a bonus bot mode though. I'll probably still end up getting the lot of them. Kinda want Menasor pics now though.

Honestly, Im disappointed in Dead End and Drag Strip. their so neo (ugh) and Dead end looks so Hasbroish with those shoulders and fold down car hood. He looks like legends Wheelie. I someone comes out with a set of G1 (cartoon) heads.

Holy freakin' cow. Those are so pretty, I must must must have them all.

That set is amazing. I hope Mkall is right and that these higher prices help balance out Motormaster's price. If all of the figures have their prices raised, then this is going to be one expensive set and I'm going to be less than impressed with FP on this one.

MakeToys made 6 figures affordable with yellow Giant. $125.00 per set. $375.00, works out to be $62.50 per figure and their accessories. And there are some complex pieces at play in that set. This is one robot less, they're smaller than the Constructicons, and it costs almost as much if the projected price holds up.

That's highly disappointing.

Breakdown and Wildrider are obviously home runs.

Drag Strip looks like shit.

Dead End is decent enough I guess.

At this price point and size, Motormaster and the combined mode really could make or break this set for me, gonna have to be over the top.

I agree with the dude that said that the next two look like a different line. It took me a while to figure that out they weren't, keep thinking they must be stand ins from a hasbro release I missed.

VERY glad the madness of a female Dragstrip was just a rumor. This is to fill the Stunicon-sized hole in my Neo-G1 Seasons 1-movie collection, not to be some kind of Animated homage on top of it all.

I like all of these. Granted, they are very much "classic-ized", but they're recognisable as who they're supposed to be from G1. That's enough for me. I suppose I don't have the sort of connection tot hese guys others may have, so changes to them don't bug me so much.

Thanks dude, this is turning into a stupid month for me. 2 MMC bots, now these guys, but I can't complain. I think all 4 stunticons revealed so far are beautiful, and I can't wait to see Motormaster. I've always wondered what FansProject could do if they created an entire combiner from scratch, looks like we will find out soon enough.

Personally, I am expecting Motormaster to be at least twice the cost of the individual figures revealed so far, I guess he will be (at least) voyager sized and will have all the combiner kibble included. So us limeys will be spending £300 in this guy, £30 more than Giant cost me.

I'm hoping that the individual figure price is higher than FP's normal to spread the cost around so Motormaster will be cheaper. FP has yet to put out a single item with a MSRP over $100 since that was the ceiling Hasbro officially stated on third party items. I know every other company seems to be ignoring that but FP still hasn't crossed that line. And if they go for the Ongoing design (which is too awesome for them not to try) all the combiner kibble would be part of Motormaster anyway. On the other hand, they have the total design cost of a complete combiner to recoup so I might be wrong but I doubt it. I'm expecting it to be the standard Warbot price of $85-$90.

I think it's *possible* that Motormaster might come without his trailer to keep costs for individual items low. After all, their City Commander armor is kind of the same idea - a trailer that splits apart - and that was $80 originally. If MM is as big as they say, it might push him over $100 if his traielr were included with him.
