Fansproject Release Teaser Hidden In Extra's For Assulter!

By Reluttr on Thursday, November 15, 2012

BBTS just put a picture of the tree of unpainted mini figures included with assulter for use in carrier mode. All is in place with the top row, Defender in copter mode, car mode, steel cores cab, and trailer. The teaser is in the second row of miniatures on the tree, the first being a race car, most likely a nod to Drag Strip from the upcoming Menasor release. The next item on the sprue is a futuristic jeep, but not just any jeep, its g1 roadbusters alt mode! Which if you remember right, a stylized roadbuster robot mode was also featured in the comic with Protector's comic.

Then we come to the last 2 items on the tree, a pair of very futuristic motorcycles, they almost look like the perfect effect/idw arcee design. I would say its a nod to a possible Computron release since afterburner had a alt mode similar to that, but whats weird is that there is a pair of the cycle, like with the release of PE-DX-01. Does this mean there is a collaboration project between Perfect Effect and Fansproject in the works? Its highly possible, FP has collaborated with Maketoys in the past, and since FP is interested in reinventing the power, target, and head masters, it would only make sense to work with the masters of tiny transforming robots.

Whats probably the most exciting thing about this all is that since FP released a physical item of these designs then its means that they already have a working model of all of them. So basic or not, FP has began work on ALL of these in one way or another and have made it past concept art stage!

Well that and roadbuster got a completely new character design and name in the Defender comic. Also I could had swore that I stated in my post that the 1st row of the tree was confirmed releases/designs, and the trailer is most defiantly on the 1st row of the part tree.

I thought FP Scrapped their Wreck-Gar concept when Hasbro Came out with their RtS Wreck-Gar. I can possible see them doing a Sandstorm since they have now done Springer and Broadside. It's be nice if they did a Blitzwing since no one has put one out yet.

That was the first and only thing that came to mind when I saw that one. People are seriously over thinking this. Emerje

I've seen some wild speculation in my time, but DEAR GOD. That Steel Core's trailer is on the sprue should surprise no-one; FansProject Core already put out an announcement revealing that a trailer was in the works. The dune buggy is clearly Sandstorm; again, a no-brainer considering that F... read more

If you ordered from FansProjectCore, then it's likely that your order has been shipped. I sent them an e-mail complaining as to why the online stores got their Assaulters in stock, but I, who ordered directly from them as soon as Assaulter went for sale, had not gotten mine. Well, they explai... read more

Those are a mystery to me, however they bear some resemblance to the Autobot police officers from IDW's Transformers series, they also look like they could be proto's for Afterburner

Humm... I think you are right. XD Any idea's who the motorcycles could be?

I'd have to say you're Dead wrong on the Dragstrip homage, the racer is identical to G1 Sureshots Alt. Mode.

Via the Weibo page of Toyszone, we have a look at one more item on display from Planet X. The recolor of their Genesis, unofficial Omega Supreme inspired by War For Cybertron, Guardian is the Omega Sentinel equivalent in the familiar blue and white colors. The existence of this has been more or less known for a while, but if not our first look at a physical sample outright, it's the first we've had in a while! Given Genesis's pricepoint, troopbuilding Guardian may be out of the question, but it's probably still very welcome for completists. Click through to see both photos.
Badcube was showing at the China International Comics Festival as well, and we've got a few photos of their take on Sunstreaker. Seemingly at a very advanced stage of completion with full paint, while the broad strokes of Sunstreaker are present and represented, the smaller details do sadly look like they might need another pass or two. Only time and further photos will tell how this one will be received when it's actually released. Click through and take a look!
