Wanted to let people know that KFC are sending out free replacements for the problem-ridden guns for their Ironpaw and Nightstalker figures. Good on them for fixing this issue! "Hey! Fans of KFCTOYS. We tested the new shoulder cannon for Ironpaw ,and put up a video of how it works just with your nail to rotate it out. This new shoulder cannon will be shipped to the retailers very soon.including silver for CST-02J and metal gray for CST-02NS."
UPDATE. Dr. Wu just posted a poll on his weibo page, with numbers 1 to 9 and the following instructions (translated from Chinese with google): "MP police shoulder cannon made some settings, please vote choice, choose up to three per person." So it looks these cannons are for Masterpiece Prowl, and he's asking the fans to choose the three designs he will make. Post your favorites in the comments below.
Meteor Operation is asking opinions on behalf of a third party TF company that's looking at making a Masterpiece sized Ultra Magnus figure. They want to know size of their figure. Should it be scaled to slightly taller than MP10 in robot mode and have a smallish vehicle mode, or have the same size vehicle as MP10 with trailer, and for a much larger robot? You can vote on the TF Masterpiece Ultra Magnus project now at Meteor Operation
It's been quiet for a while... too quiet. Rest assured though, as we are developing ideas on how to push FPC forward and maintain a unique course for the future. We've been working on new features for the site as well as hiring new staff that will help us to continue our vision. This process has not come easy and has taken a while to fund and get the right people on board to help us build and to support this idea.
