After the splendid product that was FansProject's WB-001 Warbot Defender, we've been holding our breath for their upcoming 'Crossfire' Bruticus Limb Upgrades. We finally get something that aren't prototype pictures, as valued site sponsors BigBadToyStore and TFsource hook us up with five in-color pictures of Crossfire XF-02A Explorer and Crossfire XF-02B Munitioner. They are modern day takes on Blast Off and Swindle, respectively. Check them out below.

Too late.. The price is already shooting through the roof. Not to mention the availability is nonexsistent . Everywhere I look he's sold out. I don't feel too bad though, when I did find Bruticus in target I grabbed but a kid and his mom where also eye ballin it. He told his mom that he wanted to spend his allowance on the " transformers that combine with tanks and stuff"..I couldn't walk off with Brut in my hands after that..

Wow, those are so sweet I'm almost at a loss of words. I'm so glad I preordered these as soon as they were listed.

I remember picking up the whole set of Energon Bruticus combiners way before they put out the ROTF set. Now I always go back and forth on whether or not to pick up the ROTF version. I like the colors much better but paying so much for three molds I already own... :???:

Exactly what I was thinking. :grin:

Oh, wow...

One thing I'm curious about is how Vortex connects with Onslaught now. Looks like there's an add-on piece there. Curious...

Yay! I actually like the Energon Bruticus Mold. Doing the legs Peaughs way, he comes out as one of the best of the "recent" combiners. These two (with their array of extra bits) will only make him better, so big win.

Now, seeing as they're willing to create new figures these days, I wonder if they'd tackle Classics Devastator. No hate on Crazy Devy, but you need a G1 Devestator first. Have fun finding him. Catching up with Classics line is hard enough.

I like the launch pad for "Blast Off."

But $100 for both upgrades? Yeesh.

How about the Menasor from the latest issue of IDW TF comics?

That's exactly what I did. I ordered an extra Munitioneer for my Swindle shelf. Not like I could display Bruticus along side the Combaticons according to the G1 cartoon :lol: !

These people from FansProject have real talent. I think Hasbro or TakaraTomy should try to hire them. I don't know if they would want to work on Hasbro or TakaraTomy, but they've definitely got the touch :) .

Jeezus!! They look so amazing. The articulation!! The fact that Bla...Explorer is holding that sword with two hands is such the money shot. It's incredible that these guys transform and then also combine. I am absolutely in awe!! :shock:

The first set will be used for Bruticus. When the eventual repaints come out, I'll have those guys, with the two left over limbs from my ROTF Bruticus set as a separate team and display them in their individual bot modes.

Want to touch sooo bad now....

Wait, now that they're releasing color pics... Defender showed up quite soon after his pics came out. Could these guys be shipping soon, too?
