The Cruiser mode is growing on me. I love Macross/Robotech/Japanese Mecha, so I'll probably love this. I definitely love FP products...sorry, accountant. It's going to be a crappy November. Preordered!

(Now that retail prices on regular TF Deluxes are insane, I can save money there. Maybe I'll peruse the clearance shelves after Xmas.)

looks like another top notch Fans Project design. Looks like another flat rate shipping fiasco that I don't want to be a part of. Oh well.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn

Thanks to all our fans for all the patience with so many projects going on. We have many announcements to make starting with this one. FPC will be releasing pre-orders soon for Assaulter and has confirmed with FP that members of FPC that order will receive a bonus with their figure.


After some back and forth with the manufacturer, we have confirmed that the bonus mini bots will be packaged with FPC versions of Assaulter together with the box. Due to the huge interest in these, the manufacturer has also noted that these minis will also be available with all retailed Assaulters, but packaged separately.


So the BBTS/other retailer version will have everything that the FPC one does, but packaged separately? For the same price?

Much as I want to support FPC, BBTS's pile of loot and customer service will win this for me, easily.

I have a question and I would really appreciate if someone could answer it, especially if someone had the opportunity of having one in hands:

What kind of joint is in Assaulter's hips connecting the legs to the body? Is that a ball joint? or is it a ratchet joint?

I think it is a very important question because of the diecast in the legs. I don't want to believe they use ball joints in the hips, but... never know... The joints in the hips seems similar to the ones in Core Steel, which are ball joints... Assaulter needs to have ratchet joints to support poses.

Thank you =)

Pre-ordered.

It certainly has a Macross vibe to it, but that's OK with me.
I look at it as a "Cybertron" mode ... and I really like Macross, so it's all good.

If some later company does re-do the character with more of an earth mode, I'd probably look to update this, and move him from my Neo-G1 shelves to my Cybertron mode shelf, which is getting a lot of love because of the WfC/FoC stuff.

Yep, that's kinda what I'm thinking as well. It's a good representation if they were shooting for a Cybertronian/pre-Earth mode for him.

I'm still not biting though simply because I don't have an itch for a pre-Earth Broadside that badly. It does look like a pretty nifty figure though.

Maybe some other company can create a middle piece that fits over the 2 runways and makes it look more like an earth carrier. At least they got the robot mode right. Although I would have been satisfied with a repaint of Armada Tidal Wave with a retooled head. Flip the wings out and its a plane, lol.

The carrier mode doesn't actually bug me as much (though it would have been nice). I really wanted a show-accurate plane mode. I always thought he looked cool, kinda like a gigantic Aerialbot or something. That's why his scale clashes between carrier and jet modes never bothered me, because he actually didn't really mass-shift too much on the show. He turned into a gigantic plane the size of an aircraft carrier.

Why are people looking for Assaulter to have a G1 look when it's obviously using a Cybertronian mode?

I guess it's my own fault for misunderstanding the concept of what they were trying to create. I honestly thought that, like Springer (Defender), they were shooting for a homage/representation of the original G1 version of the character. It was never really clear to me that what they were going for was a Cybertronian version.

I was looking for a modern (i.e. bigger, more complex, better articulated, more show-accurate) G1 version of Broadside. Again, that's my own misunderstanding of what they were doing, and the reason why I'm not buying in on this one.

Because people have a affliction of liking old, outdated designs, and want them to be repeated every two years.

I'm digging these FP's, because they are not G1, but a completely new universe of g1 characters in new exciting designs, we haven't seen before.

Plus I'm a Mecha Fan, so the fact theres a macross shot out in that design, means double win.

Hey, I'm all for updates, but making something look like a Macross mecha from 10 or 20 years ago isn't an 'update' in my opinion. Making it look like perhaps a more modern incarnation of an actual fighter jet/aircraft carrier would be an update, not making it look like something considered 'futuristic' back in the 80's.
