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.

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.

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.


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

I've always been sorta meh about the Technobots, but that Hun-grr is pure sex. I'll buy the Technobots to augment my G1 Redux collection, but I'm excited about the Terrorcons. What I would really like to see are the Stunticons. I demand a Motormaster that doesn't look like he's stuck in a box with his shoulder joints stuck at his waist.

I'm in for both.

I hope these guys tackle ALL the combiners, though Superion and Bruticus can be last.

I'm really looking forward to watching this project.
Watching the Herc project build up, was almost as cool as getting them!

For the record, I'm in the "Deluxes with a central voyager/ultra" camp.

Very nice. I'm not noting anything until an actual prototype is displayed.

Am I the only one who doesn't think much of the Autobot combiners? I don't me I don't like them, I mean that they literally don't come to mind as readily as most Cons counter parts. I readily know Devastor, Bruticus, and Predaking (why will no one make a Classicverse of him? :-( ) and I know Menasor, Piranhacon, and Abominus, but the Autobots are outside of that.

Edit: except Superion, but FansProject already took the suck out of Hasbro's version.

TFC sold me on Hercules. Im all in on both sets. Especially the Terrorcons. Hasbro is not known for making beast alt modes in their classics related lines. Only 3 have been made, and 2 of them were Beast Wars. (3rd being Grimlock) So TFC is the perfect company to get the job done. :D

Agreed. The only way we'll get these proper is by 3rd party companies. With that being said, i'm a little tentative about getting too excited about the Terrorcons. That Hun-Grr sketch is a little busy for my liking. Sharpy and jaggedy.....know what i mean?

It'll be a really tough job to get the designs right for those guys. I'm thinking the designers may over think the re-imagining of them and make them more futuristic and less monstrous.

I remember FrenzyRumble had started a Terrorcon project a while back that looked spectacular but i haven't heard of any progress since and that was a couple years ago. His designs were dead on. He didn't have bot modes though. Just piecing together the alt modes. Which looked properly repugnant.

I reckon they are a hard thing to design without getting too BeastWarsish.

Those Technobot sketches look very promising.

Weeeellllllllll...... If you consider Univers.... I have 29 American beast mode "classics" including Hun Gurr: Also not pictured is the Universe Optimus Prime Voyager lion in red and blue and some smaller legends primes that I can't remember which line exactly they came from. :D

I'm just messin' with you Rated X. I am Totally on board for both. Hell, I still wanna see some modern Seacons! Personally, I'd like to see Computron first. I coveted that thing as a kid and always wanted one. Finally having him is just as awesome as I imagined it would be and would love to see a classics version.
