TFcon 2012: FansProject - Headmasters on the way!

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
FansProject announces Function X, their take on Headmasters. Concepts for Chromedome, Brainstorm, Minerva, Weirdwolf, Mindwipe, and Optimus Prime Alligator (one would assume they will repaint this one into Skullcrusher). Also a Menasor teaser, and repainted Deluxe Insecticons will get remolded alt modes.

All very exciting news, although I just don't know what to make of that Optimus Prime 'Gator... :-?

That Menasor teaser and the photos of the first two Stuntacons look fantastic! Can't wait to see what they do with Motormaster!

FansProject are being ridiculously good here. Just the repaints of the Insecticons looked like brand new figures, these remolds are crazy.

and now Headmasters? I worry for my wallet, but I think I'll have to get some of these.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.

Honestly, I want to hate them for doing this in the first place. But it will get Takara Tomy to do Encore editions of the Headmasters... Or non-United versions of the characters... I will most likely thank them by buying their version of Chromedome. :-?

Can we please get an emoticon like this one :BOOM: but that explodes white? It would come in very handy right now. So long ToyWorld's Hardhead! I hardly knew ye (and don't really care.)

I have to confess that the Function X figures don't look up to the usual FansProject design quality. I know they're only concepts, but still. Also I hope FP aren't going to be getting into the business of releasing molds in the 'wrong' colours before the 'right' ones i.e. (probably) Steel Core, Brainstorm and Skullcruncher. It seems to be a MakeToys type move that's been shared.

I am truly impressed with what FP has been able to do with the Insecticon molds. Are these three guys supposed to homage anyone? The look fabulous. Menasor will be great but I hate silhouettes. Bring on the Headmasters! I've been wanted a Chromedome for a while now. :APPLAUSE:

Menasor? Yes please. Everything else? Pass.

It is kinda nifty that they're recoloring (or would it be precoloring :P?) Skullcruncher into the Alligatacon from G1.

I was referring to the heavy Insecticon retools that no longer have insecticon alt modes. The tank, anti-air vehicle, and jet to be exact. I know the three colored ones with new heads are the deluxe Insecticons.

Ah sorry, my mistake. I've been seeing so many misnamed insecticon posts on multiple forums since the unveiling of these guys that I assumed too much in your post. ><

As far as the new vehicle modes, cybertronian? That's my best guess.

No worries man. I could have been more specific in my original post. I'm amazed what a few extra parts did for those molds. I love the jet one. Hopefully the color schemes they choose mesh well bc I'm sold on them so far.

Sadly, they won't find a place in my collection. Just can't fashion a reasonable excuse to shell out even more cash what with all the goodies we've been shown coming up in the next few days.

They sure are nice though. Great work, FP. :APPLAUSE:

I feel the same. Good effort, but unless people are going for pre-G1 figs, I doubt there will be much popularity in these.
