Luckily I never had to experience iGear but rather hear about the nightmares folks went through there. I know I was order 126 and a couple of my buddies were in the mid 200's so Im sure there getting to the middle of their shipping list soon. Have faith and remember it's Fansproject, they are the best 3rd party company in the game right..at least imo :P

Funny... I saw your post yesterday, but I thought it was just a cute little picture you made & didn't even notice there was a link.

I hadn't realized we were doing an order number and status sort of thing. I was order #135 and mine was completed/delivered on 8/2/12. I still haven't unwrapped it yet.

Yeah, really. I kinda got bummed out about the Energon Ultra Magnus likeness that was shown at TFCon. See I really like the figure it homages and would have liked to have gotten that instead of sort of blindly buying into a Warbot who really didn't homage anyone. I don't dislike what we got. I simply think that if that was the plan all along, why not put that foot forward? I have faith that FPC will do something along the same lines as the City Commander kit they did. That's great. I look forward to it. If they put the mold out in red as Overload, that would be even better IMO. It would be a character I don't already have a Classics homage of. It just sort of feels like we got jerked around to me. Even if that's just my opinion. I really hope everyone is satisfied with theirs.

Yeah... that's a common view I can see where it's coming from. I guess I'm just in a different spot. I couldn't care less about homages to TF characters, I just like cool-looking transforming toys. I'm a huge fan of the Fansproject aesthetic & I'd be thrilled if they eventually get away from the Transformers brand a bit more & did their own thing, I'd love to see them succeed with their own brand and stop being a 3rd Party TF company... but I realize I'm the minority on that one.

Once you get around to taking Steelcore out & playing with him though, I'm sure you'll be extremely pleased... he's truly an incredible work of art.

That is an add-on to Steelcore... Well, Corer at that point. It's from Venksta.

Fans Project Core.com secured 800 pieces from that run, to sell early and directly to fans. That means from the original run for Steel Core, there is a lot more units sitting around in a warehouse, waiting to be released.

So in a nutshell, if you missed out, theres more SteelCores to be released either through retailers or Fans Project Core.com. Their probably just waiting for the preorders from FPCore.com to finish shipping out first. So just be patient and you'll get your chance to order it again if you missed out.

No worries, just too lazy to type up my own response when that one pretty much said it all.

Seemed to me like LC was trying to help you out by answering your question. They'll more than likely release this later on but the price might be slightly higher since it will be sold by the distributors ( BBTS, Rkingdom Tfsource)

I was shorted two figures, did anyone else have their shipment split up? I emailed them and am hoping they will be arriving soon as I did a group buy. Thanks!

So two weeks with no reply to repeated emails, I am missing two Warbots. Does anyone on the board know how to contact them? I am beyond frustrated and am not the only one who this has happened to.

I'm not surprised, although the seller is a little late to hop on to the scalpel bandwagon. People were buying them for ridiculous prices on eBay within the first week after Fansproject Core shipped them out.

On that note, anyone want to sell me theirs for a reasonable ($100) amount??? Otherwise, I can TOTALLY wait for the second run.
