This figure makes me angry, because this might deter one of the decent 3rd parties from making the actual Protectobots. Please shelve the damn thing :(

Like Hercules deterred Maketoys from releasing Giant?

That was a slightly different case as both were announced and developed almost simultaneously. I will probably hold off in hopes of a more G1ish Defensor figure that will be in scale with all of FansProjects/Maketoys combiners.

Yeah, this.

Plus, the Protectobots are my least favorite combiner from Seasons 1-2. They just sorta ... appeared. And hardly ever combined.
