Much like the checkout process on the FPC site tonight. Glad I stayed up late to order this just to get tons of server errors and timeout messages.

FP, would you please just sell this through the standard online, retail sites?!?

:BOOM: Seriously?!? Surely SteelCore is an awesome enough figure in it's own right to warrant keeping regardless of any additional accessories.

I'd quite like a caravan full of different coloured Core figures if they did more than just keep Steel's boobs looking fabulous. Yeah, I'll get it because it's FansProject and it'll fill out Steel's back in vehicle mode, but I hope there's something a bit more interesting in the other half of the trailer.

I believe the consensus is that Heartmaster was Fansproject's OC/tribute to the concept of Powermasters in general, not an homage, so a redeco would not thus be an homage to a Transformers character.

I'm saying that I don't like that color scheme and am disappointed if that's what they intend to do with Steelcore's recolor. Has nothing to do with it not homaging something else. >:oP

I suppose it'll have it's fans. I don't know what I was expecting, but ... not that.

Who says that there's going to be a recolor? That image was most likely depicting how SteelCore came about.

I wonder how many times it'll need to be said until it finally sticks...

Steelcore admittedly has a similar color scheme as Energon Ultra Magnus that was a repaint of Armada Overload. However, Steelcore is not based on either character and was created as and intended to be an original character of FPC.

Ah, ok thank you! I have never seen that pic before then came across it via a Google search!
It looks nice though, both items look to rather fitting for each other? ;)

It's true that they're not nessasarily going to do that as a recolor ... but, then again, it's not like they haven't given previews of upcoming recolors in comics before.

You know, they are planning to make that red recolor of Defender, right?

I don't see why I'm not allowed to dislike it. Even if it's not what they're going to do, I don't see why I can't dislike their color scheme there.

Do I know about the Defender recolor? Only in the comics that they've shown... Would it be possible? Sure. Could they do a recolor of SteelCore? It was already mentioned before that FP doesn't have any plans on doing that. Could it be done in the future? Most likely if there's a big demand. As for the yellow-striped SC in the comic, if FP releases that, I think quite a number of people will buy into it (imho). Who says you can't dislike the color? It's called personal preference. :D

FP Core told me they plan on making the Defender recolor with a new head.

They're very friendly folk. I talked to them quite a bit that day.

Edit: I don't see why they wouldn't recolor Steelcore. They've done so with just about all their releases.

Good that you have that information. It would be nice to post a link or quote that conversation then. As far as the "recolor" for SteelCore, it's not impossible, but unless Venksta is just pulling our leg, he mentioned before that SC will not have one. Or I might just be reading it as no Overload version...

What link? I was there at TFcon and just asked them there. Myself. Personally. In person. And not over the internet.

But I was talking about Defender, not Steelcore, and used that as a point. Sorry if there was confusion. But it's not like these guys can't change their minds. If they're showing a recolor in the comic it seems to me that there'll be a recolor of SteelCore at some point and this is just their clever way of marketing it.

Edit: It's fine if you think I'm wrong though. Skepticism is always called for with unsubstanciated rumors which is what I'm doing, I guess. However, it seems to me that they always try to recolor their molds. So, even if they said they weren't going to this picture makes me think they're changing their minds.

I already said that I know about Defender getting a recolor based on the comic... As for SC, which is the thread we're in, and from other insiders, it won't have one - or not have an overload version. I also mentioned that it was not impossible for FP to change their mind about it, especially if there's a big demand. Your previous post didn't state that you spoke with FPC at the con, which is why had asked for a link/quote of that conversation so that everybody can see and be informed. Thanks for clarifying. I didn't even say that you're wrong.

war bot steel core trailer and steel core is up for preoder right now


For this content, you'll need to log-in or register to see the full details and any images.



For the longest time now, there have been rumors of an accessory for the WB-002 Steel Core. Some may have even seen the prototype in person. Well, this thing is in development and we'd love to show some shots of the concepts and details that will go into the final product.



These of course are just the concept 3d images and details may change in production. We'll have more news on that as it comes and prototype shots as we get them.



Further to this news, I know that the bigger thing on everyone's mind has been "when will we see another release of the WB-002 Steel Core himself?". Well, we have been confirming numbers with FP and it seems like we will have another limited run of these available to the FPC community. Pre-orders are estimated to go up this Sunday October, 28th, 2012.



We are still working out details with FP on pricing, so please check back with us often over this weekend for more details. We appreciate everyone's patience in bringing these back, this was a big risk for FP as a manufacturer and FPC has had to do a lot of convincing just to be able to cover the first run. Having a second round is phenomenal for us and a true sign of appreciation from FP for the success of the first release. Of course, FP has been also been gracious enough to work with us on the trailer for this piece to complete the vision of the designers. As you can imagine, we are so happy that things have worked out the way they have.



We really thank FP for believing in FPC and the patience of the fan base in this community as we grow. We'd also like to thank all of our volunteers and people behind the scenes that have worked out bugs in the site, helped to fill our resource fall backs in customer service and fulfilment and the visionaries that helped consult on the overall direction of this idea.



Not only did this help with the launch of this web site and it's features for nominal costs, it allowed us to have a ground breaking product like Steel Core come to fruition. From the features of the site being fully customized and launched in a matter of a few months, to the 3 month promo and market turn around release of Steel Core (the very first product teasers on FPC in May, 2012 to shipping out the last unit in August, 2012). This has been a testiment to the efforts of everyone involved. Thanks again!



Both FP and FPC look forward to the future as FPC starts to realize the potential of sustainability with this project and hope to one day not rely only on the good graces of our help, but to be able to afford our own resources and run our own budgets that will develop much more than just retail products - which is the biggest vision of this group. We realize that retail is a quick way to help develop our budgets for this community, but don't want our emphasis to be taken away from the bigger picture that founded this community.



Even after all of this whirlwind of releases, what actually really surprised us was the outstanding amount of emails from new and old fans that did not even know of such releases or about the purpose of the fan site itself. As we grow, we hope to have in place more experts on our team that will help spread the word about FPC and gain more reach to other regions and facets online and even in the real world through events and shows.



We will have more news on the other side of things like site features, stories and overall direction of the member factions soon. And of course photos and developments in the WB-002 Trailer.



Watch for details on the Steel Core re-release and a big thanks to all the fans again!
