New Toy Galleries: FansProject Crossfire Bruticus, Blast Off, Swindle, Onslaught, Vortex and Brawl!

Postby Anonymous. » Sat Jul 24, 2010 7:56 pm

Much like what they did to Revenge of the Fallen Superion, the same has been done to Bruticus Maximus. FansProject has refurnished, revitalized and re-engineered the figure into the combiner it was meant to be. These add-ons come in two different boxes, Crossfire-02A and Crossfire-02B, which contain brand new figures of Blast Off and Swindle respectively. Also in these boxes are augmentations for existing figures, Onslaught, Vortex, and Brawl - all giving them a little extra firepower and aesthetics. For your viewing pleasure, the add-ons have made their way into the renowned toy galleries of Seibertron.com. Check out this third party masterpiece in the links and pictures below!

You can purchase Explorer and Munitioner from several of Seibertron.com's valued sponsors such as tfsource.com, bigbadtoystore.com, and robotkingdom.com.

Gotta say Onslaught is kibble-tastic in robot mode and Vortex looks like one of those Zentradi pods in vehicle mode. But when I get this he'll be staying in combined mode anyway, so whatever.

Superb! Fansproject couldn't have made this any more perfect. Hopefully Hasbro has been taking notes about design from these guys. It's getting closer and I am salivating in anticipation.

Ah more pictures, and yet it is more of the same. The same awesomeness anyway.

It's been a longer wait than expected (seriously the Robotkingdom advert on the right still says June) but all is well that ends well.
I was just glad to hear there was a good reason for them to postpone the release.

Though I am kinda peeved that I couldn't order the Arial team kit with it.
Uh, actually... Did they stop producing those? I can't find them anywhere except tfsource, and they decided to quadruple the price. :???:

If they aren't making those anymore, I might just cancel these. I did intend to display them together after all.

Shouldn't this be in the 3rd party forum?

I bought RotF Bruticus just for this set and I'm dying with anticipation after seeing these pics. Can't wait. I still see these kits at a Zellars near me, so anyone who'se still on the fence you might wanna try a Zellars near you.

Thank you indeed for getting Cygnee from FansProject and I to talk at BotCon. Hopefully I can do this again for Protector in a few months.

Thanks for sharing; I can't wait for this set! The more I see, the more I think I'll keep the components in individual bot-modes rather than combined as Bruticus though... Swindle (Munitioner) and Blast-Off (whatever his name is) are that awesome. :APPLAUSE:

Oh, one question:

Can he hold WSTF Shockwave? Those hands give me some hope and I bought the sucker to be held by the guy. If not, maybe I can use some invisible elastics to do the trick...

I kind of just want Blast Off, he looks like a great standalone figure. (And the first spaceship TF in a very long time)

Which of these would you want on display?

I think I would rather have the Energon version. Whoops, I meant Universe with Crossfire added. There is absolutly no contest between them. Seriously Hasbro, you dropped the ball with the Energon combiners. Thank the gods for Fansproject.

WOW-great galleries. I cannot wait to get these! And seeing WST Shockwave in his hands may have just pushed the that figure into the must buy column too.

EDIT: Might I add that this set kicks Superion's butt all over the place. Granted, I know that mold isn't nearly as good/robust but this figure/set looks so much better in every way. Finishing my new display shelving today and cannot wait for this to arrive and go up.

Blast-off and Swindle look fantastic. Hope Fansproject decided to make the others as well, the Hasbro figs suck hard.
