I'm interested if for no other reason than my "classic" Autobots are becoming painfully out-numbered. Do hope the scale isn't too huge; would prefer this Bruticus scaled versus another Hercules-sized beast.

Let's be realistic here - we won't be seeing these guys for at least another year. TFC has so many projects either announced or in prototype stage:

Off the top of my head:
Dino-Combiner
StarCats combiner
PCC limbs
Reflector
Abominus (sketches seen last year)
and now sketches for Protectobots.
I'm sure there's some targetoids or something right?

At this stage after my initial excitement wore off, I will not get excited until I see prototype images.

Considering their track record as far as Hercules is concerned, holy dinosaur marbles I am beyond stoked. Computron was always my favorite Autobot combiner :3

I'm hoping that this is not as large as Hercules. Afterburner should be nowhere near the size of a construction vehicle.

This could also be a hint for :CON: MENASOR :CON: . 2 of these teased drawings look like some figures from my set of STUNTICONS. That would be totally cool.

If your Menasor has two bots that look like the ones shown here then you either have the KO Menasor that came with two Technobots or a mismatched G1 Menasor. Here's what the real Menasor looks like.

I'd be more interested in The Stunticons and Menasor. Motormaster would need some serious reimagining, Maybe Have the trailer turn into a weapon platform? Not looking for 100% G1 accuracy, But a cool modern version like Fansproject Bruticus/Superion .

I was considering it for the same reason.


Then I remembered I couldn't care less about any of the Autobot Combiners. None of them ever appealed to me beyond doing all sorts of wrongidy-wrong combinations with their limbs and Decepticon Scramble City combiners.

Am I one of the few who actually want this to be in scale with Herc? I know it would mean making Scattershot near on Leader class but part of Hercules awesomeness was his sheer size and bulk. I know it would be more affordable but I would love it if it was around the same size.

I had previously thought that TFC would make more combiner teams but stick with 6 figs all the same size like Herc. They could push out Monstructor, Raiden even do a Piranacon.
WANTED TO BUY

No argument here. I'd love to have a Technobots set around Voyager size, just like big bad Herc.

Computron is by far my fav Autobot combiner, so regardless of cost, if TFC does this, I am instantly all over it.

I just hope they do the Terrorcons afterwards ;).

Yeah, I'll take some TFC flavoured Technobot action.

I hope they're slightly smaller than TFC's Constructicons. I've always felt Devastator should be the biggest of all the gestalts, plus they'd hopefully be a bit cheaper. However I don't want the individual figures to be as small as Munitioner or Explorer, so four deluxes and a voyager/ultra will work for me.

I'm not too keen on this idea of them all being red and white though. If you're going to do a job then at least do it right.

This would be awesome! Technobots are definitely my favourite Autobot combiners. I don't care if it is Hercules scale or FP Bruticus scale (though would prefer FP Bruticus scale).

The TFC Constructicons were fantastic. I hope that this project goes somewhere quickly.

Bingo! I'm still excited for these guys but it's a long way away. I also agree with the hopes that these will be deluxe figures instead of voyagers like the Hercules guys.

TFC Toys Technobot Scattershot and Possibly Hun Gurr Sketches

We now have concept work for TFC Toys Technobot Scattershot. We brought you the other 4 members earlier this month. Actoys.net posted these two sketches from the team at TFC Toys. Is the two headed dragon a heavily stylized Hun Gurr or some other robot toy like their Star Q products? Obivously these are a long way off but interesting none the less. Check out the pics below or click to go to Actoys.net
