By that do you mean it's the only original bot they put out?

What does this trailer do in robot mode? does anyone know? I sold my Steelcore after deciding it doesn't work in my collection. I would re-buy this again if they sell Steelcore with the trailer this time around and that the trailer actually does something... does it combine? so much lack of info on this.. (unless I miss stuff)
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:

MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

Anyone care to share updates on the awesome must have stuff they payed for? Or in which way the fiction has evolved due to fan imput? Or what you can do with your crystals?

You've missed absolutely nothing my friend. Zilch. Nowt. Naff all. The square route of jack. Just the other day they renovated their website and I think moved to new servers, but there's been nothing new content-wise. I imagine the upgrade is leading to something, but no news yet.


Fantastic, good to know they still don't live up to the name of FansProject.

FansProject Core is not the same as FansProject.
I believe that the site started out as actually being FansProject, but was later taken over by someone else who have since stated they are a separate entity from FP and that they want to be the TFCC of the 3rd Party world and carry stuff from all 3rd Party groups.
The evidence is that when the site first went up the press releases where all in pretty bad English and FP's site stated that it would close down and use FPC as its new site. Then after a while of no updates, FPC suddenly updates with pretty damn good English.
Also FPC is based in Canada and have actually told me in an e-mail that they are not the same as FansProject, while Venksta insisted that they where, and since even Venksta states that they're not the same as FP.
So yes, Steelcore is their only claim to fame. A shame really that it's only available through them and their sh*tty ripoff shipping.

Fansprojectcore is ran by Ages3andup. I'm not sure if they did originally or not though.

Are you suggesting there is? :???:

Until today there has been four half-arsed announcements since December that haven't led to anything, and certainly nothing that could not have been learnt of from any decent Transformers website or facebook.


The fact that there are new pics? That's not new news to you? The new images came straight from their site... Sorry if that's not new news to you.

Rumors - take it with a grain of salt

SC will be re-released (Most likely to be true)
Trailer will have the other Steels (Likely to be true as well)
Other modes for the trailer (We don't know yet).
Overload add-on/upgrade (Venksta confirmed this with me)
SC in other colors (Doubtful)

The way I understand it, they wanted to be FP's exclusive marketing division and distributor. They commissioned Steelcore from FP as something only they would carry to help put them on the map. How well that's worked is up for grabs.
