It was bound to happen eventually. Even Third Parties must repaint or remold their creations. But when it comes to FansProject, I guess we could say - any repaint or remold is acceptable with open arms. We have yet to receive Protector, but now FansProject has surprisingly revealed their varient for it - Shadow Scyther, which would seemingly work well with both Gentai Wildrider or Shattered Glass Rodimus. Check out the sketch below!

This also looks to be the first image of the large wings (or fins) for the back of Protector or Shadow Scyther.

...A TF/Pokemon crossover?!?

No? Ah well, scythes are just as cool as TF mantises. Or is it a TF/Gundam Wing crossover...

Yeah, my guess is that it's for Wildrider. Either way, if it's for Rodimus, Wildrider, or SG Rodimus, I'm buying it.
What we really need is a crystal armor set for the Sons Of Cybertron Rodimus set.

OMG that looks completely BADASS! This is a definite buy. =P~ =P~ :grin: Oooooo this set will be for my Crystal Rodimus and the Protector for my Classics Rodimus. That is if I cannot get my hands on a Shattered Glass Rodimus.

SG Rodimus on ebay just jumped in price from "are you kidding?" to "HOLY #&^%!"

Glad I got mine.

Hopefully this isn't the final design for the scythe accessory as it looks kind of silly with the Chiclets for what I'm assuming are supposed to be serrated teeth on the blade.

Sure, I'll take payment in body limbs... but unless you got 3 arms and 3 legs, I don't think I can do it.

Yeah, there goes my thoughts of selling all of my Shattered Glass set. Keeping them now. I bet he'll look awesome with Shadow Commander.

My god that scythe is soooo cool....

Do we know if that scythe will be a part of the regular Protector set? Seems like it would be considering the size, but then again there's the pink sword for shadow commander...

I suspect the scythe will be unique to this guy. He is called Scyther for a reason ya know ;)

I agree 100000%... How many people actually have a Sg rodimus/wildrider? Not that many..To make a upgrade set for it alone seems a tad bit foolish..I mean a Sg roddy is already fetching 3-4 bills alone..With a upgrade kit? were talkin close to doubling that..maybe even more..That's insanity...

I really hope this'll be SG rodimus colors. How an SG Autobot would "rise" though, I dunno. Don't they all believe the lore is false? Interesting despite that. I'd be all over it.

Sadly i'm not in a position where I can sell my house or my kidney, so I won't be getting this guy. :sad: sucks because I collect pretty much anything "reaper-esque" since the motorcycle club I belonged to had a reaper for our flag, and I tattooed it on me. ;)

Considering what FP has done previously with sculpting plastic, I think they could have done much better with the scythe design. The sword for Shadow Commander looks fine to me and it's by no means an elaborately sculpted accessory.

Simply choosing a less blocky shape for those "teeth" on the blade would significantly improve the look of the scythe to me. I'm not expecting a sharp edge or pointy tip or anything of the sort for the scythe blade, just something that doesn't look like it was made with extreme child safety laws in mind.
