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!

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?

These guys are sick!! FP did an awesome job on these guys, but i wonder how tall the insecticons will be? same height as munitioner and explorer? or a little smaller?

Nice! Very nice! Very, very nice! Between these, the PE Reflector set, and the Hasbro sweeps, it's going to be a good year for my Decepticon shelf.

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.

Amazing as always. Still, I'll have a hard time forgiving FP for their structural failures on the Bruticus set. :-x

Also, look open hands! They playing catch up with Hasbro now? ;)

These look very nice indeed, however unless I find a better paying job I think I will have to skip these and hope for Hasbro versions in the future as I need to save for Project Deva.

I love them all!!! So many cool details: the ninja theme most of all. And knowing FP, their paint jobs will be topnotch as well.
I can't wait to have all three on my shelf.

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!
