I love the TF homages as well but the saturation of 3rd party companies nowadays, I think some original stuff would be cool. Especially from FansProject, who have their own stories and universe to help introduce them. Bring on the creativity!
Im ready for something new...
Oddly enough, I'm not. I think it boils dow to cost for me. When it comes to original characters from Hasbro, I buy many of them because they look cool and are pretty cheap. However if a 3rd Party puts out something that is just as, if not more, cool and interesting it will be a lot more expensive for a character that I don't have any previous emotional attachment to. I just don't know if I'm ready to spend that type of dough. Time will tell I suppose.
This is true for me as well.
Heartmaster looked much more appealing after he was shown to be very similar to WW Prime. But even then he's a step removed from someone like Defender. Even their new not-Broadside is too obscure for me to really want to shell out money for. I have no emotional attachment to that guy whatsoever.
Good points. I'm gonna have to start doing some re-arranging as far as my collecting goes, but I like what FP is doing. Can I always afford this..not now, but it will teach me some self control as to spending....plus Hasbro's Transformers are really, when it comes down to it in ,in my opinion
, is geared for the kids.......and I really don't mind that. I get where that's coming from considering that's where it all started for me....as a kid. FP has taken a step that really comes off to me as more adult-like, if there really is such a thing in the "toy" market. I'll still be buying Hasbro, but more room is being made for FP....
