Project Genesis

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

Just remember that WFC Trypticon turns into a space cannon. His alt mode isn't visually much more appealing than Omega's.

Yep, too true. I'm a fan of both their alt modes myself, but that's probably just because I've played the games and I enjoyed them, so I actually prefer that they be game-accurate. I'm not looking for this (or any other 3rd party or Hasbro WfC/FoC figure) to fit into my Classics/Neo-G1 etc. collection. I've got an entire shelf devoted to the toys from the games, and that's where this guy (and Trypticon if they make one, please please please :PRAY: ) would go if I got him.

Now that you mention it....

This thing looks pretty darn good. I have Encore Omega and am considering the Energon repaint. However, this one holds pretty darn true to the game. It's got LEDs. If BBTS carries this again...

"Please, BBTS, don't carry Genesis. Sincerely, Ag's wallet."
So, when considering the merits of joining Va'al or Burn, I have to say that Va'al's obsession with Alpha Bravo is so awesome in its own right that it all but made the decision easy.

But, Burn has a stinky Whirl...

:lol: my sentiments exactly (and my wallet's too :P). I had it on preorder up until BBTS pulled it. If it goes back up, so will my preorder.

Serenity is one of the most beautiful ship designs in sci-fi. So no, I don't see Serenity when I look at this junker.

Well that's the answer to whether or not it's partsformer.
edit: or perhaps they just isolated the parts to show the lightup feature.

G1 Omega supreme is a Parts former, which I think, this figure also puts a homage to. Have they shown WFC OS (in-game) to have a tank?

Not to my recollection, and I've played the story-line a lot. I'm betting the head/tank is an homage.

And what can be better? It's a toy that's also...a flashlight!! (Gotta find some justification for the accountant, er, wife.)

Man, I wish this was about a hundred dollars cheaper....

Hey look, American retailer!

Still on the fence about it (ie - no preorders for me), but for those hot-blooded (and full-walleted) Americans, here's your chance to pick one up.

Yep, he's got some odd proportions, but it's dead on perfect to how he looks in the game (big hands/gun/claw and all). Even the vehicle mode is perfect.

This thing is so very tempting, but I'll wait until it's actually instock before biting. I do NOT pay for preorders. No toys in-hand, no money in-hand :P (OK, I paid for Trailerforce in advance, but I gotta have that thing).
