Replacement Face for FansProject Protector by DR. WU

Do you love your new Hercules set? Can't get enough of FansProject's items? Upset that you bought a knock off when you thought you were getting an original? Use this forum to tell everyone your thoughts about unlicensed and knock off TF products.

Ok, the regular face does look better installed. Will probably buy this despite the fact that the goggled face looks like it's wearing Willy Wonka's glasses.

I agree. Showing us a faceplate that isn't attached to the helmet is pretty pointless.


guys. check the first post ;)

i think it looks good, and solves my only issue with the toy. the provided face was just a tad too generic looking for me.

If I'm not mistaken, that was just in the helmet, not on the figure.

:lol: Good question. El Duque's certainly been squeezing the internet dry of news for a while now.

On topic, looking at the packaging I'm not sure if I'd be ordering a Transformers upgrade or Rodimus themed tuna fish.

I'm not a fan of the visored face but the normal one looks good. I may pick up a set anyways just to get rid of the blemish from the FP original.

Goggle version looks terrible, but I like the other. Would still like to see a side by side comparison, which I suppose I could do myself if I stopped being lazy. About the most important factor at this point is the cost...and it's unfortunate we'd have to pay extra for that crappy goggle version. I thought maybe I could find someone to go it with who preferred the goggled one, but after seeing the end results, I think that group just became a highly endangered species.

Heh. :lol:

I don't like the visor face... it's too... goggly. Or something. So if I get it at all (not very likely), it's only for the normal face.

I'm sure Daniel Protoman would like that, since he's crazy about all that is Hot Rod and Protoman. :P

I like this, can't decide which face looks better, the one with eyes or the visor one. I also like the packaging, although I fear it will make the set more expensive, seeing that it looks to be made of metal.

It's probably just a generic mint-tin type thing, I'm sure it doesn't add much to the cost. :)

I actually might need to get this. Those last pics look pretty damn good. I wonder if BBTS will offer it?
