Thanks for the link! Looks good with the wings turned around, too. Wow. That's a lot of modes.

... and an Octane that doesn't suck.

I like Octane. ;)


No worse than overrated Broadside/Assulter who has only one legitimately good mode being the main bot mode. The alt modes are both as half-assed as Octane's.

Yes, but not by FansProject. I DON'T want a mediocre 'Cybertronian' triple changer for Blitzwing.

Yeah, I DO want a Blitzwing badly... top of my triple changer list. But agreed. I do want it more realistic in tank mode than the usual FansProject vehicles.

Mind you, the jet mode of Assaulter is primo. No complaints with that or the robots. The aircraft mode is the weakest of the three, I think - either with the front merged or in two bits.

Yeah, I called it that because of the aircraft carrier fan-mode. You know what I mean ;)

You have to roll them while tabbing...

I had a little extra flash to trim in the slot holes on the shoulders. It's much better for mine now and still holds great.

I ended up doing the same and now he holds together perfectly.I only trimmed excess flash that should not have been there. Great figure!

Just picked up mine just a week ago. All said and done......one word "FansProject"! 'nuff said! :BOWDOWN:

Anyway, just fiddling around with the mini vehicles that came with him, I noticed that the following figs look surprisingly like:

1. Defender (not Springer) with his copter and armored vehicle mode
2. Heart master (plus a trailer
3. A dune buggy of sorts (reminds me of Ranger from Masterforce and Sandstorm)
4. A Mospeada type looking motor bike.

So could this mean:

1. Heart master has an upcoming trailer? Btw, who is he supposed to homage anyway? His exhaust pipes remind me of WWI Optimus and Grimlock

2. The "Cyclone" bikes, could that be the upcoming/or is it shelved not Wreckgar?

3. Thedune buggy, was that supposed to be Sandstorm?
