Fansproject Release Teaser Hidden In Extra's For Assulter!
Reluttr - 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? 
3:21 am

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

Next up in MMC's Ocular Max Perfection Series is Saltus! Saltus is MP scaled and features die-cast chest, thigh and feet, rubber tires and more! The Saltus figure Includes: Canopy can fit in properly scaled mini figure, car's head light can flip up. Twho heads: cartoon and original toy. Over 40 points of articulation. Working rotors and landing gears in alt mode. Rubber tires, Diecast chest, thigh, feet and more! Pre-order now at TFSource
Following up on the reveal of Tyrantron, Mastermind Creations posted a design graphic that reveals the toy's second configuration as the gladiatorial mining robot Tyrantronus. The change is achieved with alternate chest, head, and shoulder parts, as well as involving a different arm weapon. The giant drill suggests that the figure will be able to be configured as a vehicle other than the jet mode seen already. If it can become a drill tank, it probably wouldn't be hard to make a battle tank out of either. Keep reading to see the images.
The Facebook page for MMC's Ocular Max offshoot has posted new photos showing the prototype for their Perfection Series Saltus - yet another third party Masterpiece Springer. This one is noted to offer alternate heads for cartoon or toy influence, as well as differing shoulder arrangements to match, all while boasting 40 points of articulation. The Facebook post projects availability in the second quarter of 2017, but of course no pricing is available at this stage. Click through now to see the mirrored photos!
Mastermind Creations shared out some photos of their various displayed goods via their Facebook page today. Their Masterpiece-alike offerings seemed to be a prominent player, including a hand-painted yellow version of their Trailbreaker to represent its Diaclone colors, seemingly to measure interest in it as a potential future release. Many Reformatted figures were on hand, including the Tyrantron IDW-style Megatron we saw first earlier today. There's a nice big gallery, so click through and start having a look!
FansToys certainly has no problem with ambition! Their latest reveal, FT-20, is nothing less than an Omega Supreme designed to interact with Masterpiece Transformers. The figure takes its cues largely from the cartoon, with its overly boxy form as a robot, and simplified alternate mode look. But where this really tries to sell itself is its size, and as you can see in the mirrored gallery, it suitably towers over basically everything. More alarming is the hint that FansToys might have a Devastator on the way at the same size! Keep reading to see everything!
