Fansproject have updated their website with clearer images of their upcoming 2011 Causality "New Series" line, which includes Stormshred, Thunderbomb and Backfire. These bear some similarity to Shrapnel, Bombshell and Kickback respectively.

I don't think I possess the vocabulary to describe just how excited I am for these figures now. They look awesome with a capital AWE! Can't get over how detailed Backfire looks in insect mode.

But what I didn't expect was the robot that looked most like Shrapnel (considering the two large pincer/blades on his shoulders) would actually have the insect mode of Bombshell, and that the slightly bulkier robot that I thought was Bombshell would have the insect mode of Shrapnel. I'm going to spend a long time trying to decide which Causality figure I want to be which Insecticon.

Bombnel and Shrapshell for the win!

FansProject Causality Insecticons Revealed!

Motto: "Ore wa Gundam"
Weapon: Electro-Laser Cannon
Drool.

Despite the fantastic amount of new toys we are receiving from Hasbro this year, many fans have been anticipating the next release from third party FansProject. Late last year they previewed their 5 figure set, Causality. The first two members were Warcry and Flameblast, repaints of their Bruticus upgrades, Munitioner and Explorer.

Now the three remaining members of this 5 member set have been revealed today! They are in fact going to be Insecticons! Stormshred, taking after G1 Shrapnel, Thunderbomb homages Bombshell, and Backfire will likely be your Classics-verse Kickback!

Check out the prototype images below!

CA-03 Stormshred

CA-04 Thunderbomb

CA-05 Backfire

Causality is set for release this summer! Thanks goes out to Seibertron.com member Oilspill with the quick hands for finding the scoop.

With less than a week until March and still no pre-orders, does anyone think it's likely that the Causality line will be sticking to the release schedule listed on FansProject's site?

I suspect we will soon see some final pics of Warcry/Flameblast and then preorders will go up for late March (for Warcry) & sometime April (for Flameblast). Just guessing though. You'd think there wouldn't be too many production issues/delays since they are just retools, but you never know.

This is so weird, because I am frankly not impressed.

Why are they so blocky? Why such simple transformations?

Why not go for full-on beast modes? With insects, and their segmented exoskeletons, it's much more appropriate and easier too.

So much awesome! I'm loving the robots, their altmodes are beautiful, and even the new names too! Relative, yet unique and interesting.

They're trying some new things too. Thunderbomb horn and front legs are a pair of sai and sickles utilizing their own multi-purpose clip-system. Utilizing their abilities to make supremely posable figures all three have ninja themed weapons. This is taken a step further on the their webpage using the kanji for wind, thunder, and fire (tied to their names) to link to the HD images.

This is what I love Fansproject for. They don't just make a toy and walk away, these guys are showmen who take a design choice to heart! I wonder if the last two will be pirate themed?

I think everyone learned back in Beast Wars that full on beast modes are hidious and lead to rediculous looking transformers. Part of the appeal in the original Insecticons and even the Dinobots was that they resembled insects and dinosaurs but you're have to be a "Gentle Jack" to not figure out there were robots.

I think the blocky look is working very well on these figures, and I was their biggest critic when the first images came out.

When I see the blank, gray prototypes of 3rd parties toys, I usually love them. But as soon as I see the colored and painted pictures, they turn into a lot of "meh..."

That never happens to me with FansProject! The final images always impress me and the colors are great. Simply can't wait to pick up these guys!

Nice. Very nice.

Unfortunalty, not in the budget, but really nice none the less.

Although, I have to admit, no stinger on the top of Not-Bombshell, no pinchers on the back of Not-Shrapnel, and no giant shoulder wings on Not-Kickback kinda ruin it for me. I'm all for updates, but those are just oddly important to me for those characters.
