After the prolong silence regarding the progress of Fansproject's Protector, finally we are treated with some new images of the highly anticipated upgrade set for your Classics/Henkei Rodimus.

Fansproject has just updated their website with the new prototype images of Protector. Other than the alternate mode, we get to see first time Protector in robot mode (combined with Rodimus).

He's got the touch! He's got the power!

A definate must-buy! The proportions in robot mode are kinda odd with the addition of the armor, but not in a terrible way and definately no worse than what we've seen on regular TFs.

It looks like the main release will be for the Henkei version. Which is fine since I have both Hasbro's and takara's Hot Rod!

Wow. I am very picky with my money since I am unemployed (thank you Health Care Bill for that) but DAMN...if this looks as good when it is colored, I am SO buying it.

I know right. Looks like the exact time stamp! Hehe.

Now I want preorders for this to open up...NOW!! OK, Fans Project...please just chill with the awesomeness that are your toys and figures. (just for like a lil) My wallet is asking for a separation and I'm doing everything in my powers to not lose it. Oh what the hell...I'ma lock it up and put a lil ball and chain on it...that'll learn it!

I bought Classic Rodimus way back when FP announced the Protector..... Then no news....

Last week, i was thinking i need to get myself a Henkei Rodimus, due to that i want to pose Rodimus (hot rod) with Henkei version, and the classics Rodimus with the armor to become Rodimus Prime (Protector).

Yeah i got Henkei Rodimus, and this news.....

Sometimes you cant deny your six sense.... :grin:

Pretty damn sweet. I can't really find much wrong with it. But since I need to scrutinize, wish it would have had a bit more bulk to it. Ya know? It's nowhere near as beefy as I figured it would be. Of course with color detail done it will probably look far more filled out. Everything's better with FansProject! :KREMZEEK: Now make me a little Kremzeek that lights up, & folds up into an electric spark ball. =P~

For those that have both Classics Rodimus and Henkei Rodimus, I think it'll be best to use Classics Rodimus in this. The armor will hide his inferior chest plate and you won't scratch the chrome when in vehicle mode.

That is frakkin' sweet! I can't wait for this. The only way to make that more awesome would be to have Judd Nelson photobombing the pictures!

I'm assuming the final head will not have that G1 Bumblebee-ish "plate" in the back, and that it is going to be trimmed down for the final.

I am surprised that the robot mode doesn't have a larger set of "fins" and it using the Rodimus ones.

I picked up an extra Classics Rodimus for this during the Bruticus craze and put a set of reprolabels on my original Classics Rodimus, so I'll be set!

I did the exact same thing when the news first broke about this what seems like over a year ago. I had Henkei Rodimus, then the news, bought Classics Rodimus in preparation of this to display :)

Finally! Can't wait for this one :KREMZEEK: I wonder if he'll include a Matrix... I hope so.

Yesssssss. So glad I picked up Henkei Hot Rod. Guess I can actually open him now. Assuming we're going to see this around September and cannot wait.

For once, I agree. Everyone should expunge Henkei Rodimus from their collections and send them to me. :twisted:

And am I the only one who thinks them using the missile area to extend the gun into a really much more rifle looking gun is a stroke of genius?

But the cool kids will use their Henkei Rodimus as Hot Rod and put him in front of their Rodimus Prime figures. This will show the evolution of the character into the not so beloved leader.
