Member Venksta has let us know that FansProject has updated their website with the first prototype images of their upcoming Crossfire 02 set - the Upgrade for Energon, Universe 2 or ROTF Bruticus. These images are of a new figure named Explorer, who is a close representation to Blast Off! There are several pics showing him and some upgrades to Onslaught as well, and don't forget to look at the first image of updated Bruticus! Check out all the images here.

Awww! Blast-Off looks so cute! Especially in that white prototype shot. He's like, "I can haz hands?!"

I wonder if they'll do Swindle too.

Even if this set is twice as much as the Superion set it'll be worth it.

Wow, I was not expecting a brand new toy (toys if they are giving swindle a new toy). I am a little concerned about consistancy between the originals and new ones.



Please, please, please do the same for Devastator.

As expected, this revelation officially puts this "upgrade" kit at the top of my Transformers interest list for 2010, as Blast Off was always one of my fave G1 Transformers.

Calllllllllllled it!

Now I can't wait to see picture of "Runner" or "Swindler" or what ever they will call the Swindle type figure.

Definitely, I just hope it matches the Energon version too.

See man, it's all about the elbows B-) (and the totally new figure doesn't hurt either)

This is AWESOME. Bruticus has always been my favorite combiner (thanks entirely to Swindle, mind you) and the repainted Superion limb I made just wasn't cutting it. While I simply wasn't a fan of their Superion Upgrade, this set may surpase everything else they've done! Plus, even Vortex gets a new chest and connector port!

Now, when i thought FP has out done themselves, here they go again on their own!! winning me over again!! i thought they did a great job for Ultra Magnus upgrade, then FP Primes Trailor, the Superion upgrade (which was a 200% improvement over stock limbs) and now this!! I'm just speechless about this and i hope this turns out just as good as it looks!!!!


GREAT FREAKIN JOB FAN'S PROJECT!!!

This is BOS (Buy On Sight)!

It'll be expensive, yea, but you seem to get a lot more than the Superion set.

This set appears to be shaping up to be something special. I really love how FP seems to be pushing their designs and concepts with each new release, taking the best ideas from their prior releases and using them all to take these new releases to the next level. I just hope we see more of the Protector set. Rodimus seems to be getting list in the shuffle.

The only thing I can't figure out right now is whether the nose cone/front of Blast-Off is a separate add on or if it's part of the figure itself. -EDIT:never mind, I see what appears to be the hinge attaching the cone to the body of the shuttle.

I really don't want to rain on anyones parade, this set looks awesom and I would love to own one. But, accurate likenesses of copyrighted characters? They have got to be flying pretty close to Hasbros' radar on that one. Hopefully not for the worst.
