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 their weibo page, 80's Dream has revealed the first color testshots of their non-transforming figure kit based on Megatron's design as seen in the defunct Transformers Universe game. This product was previously revealed to work like a model kit, building the figure around a core skeleton, and when finished will be roughly equivalent to Voyager size. These photos seem to represent the base plastic colors, and it's currently unclear if any factory paint will be applied, or if finishing details are up to the end user. Keep reading to see the new photos!

Via Meteor Operation we have pictures of an upcoming Dr Wu product. Based on the third season G1 episode "Only Human" are four figurines depicting the synthoid-human bodies of Rodimus, Magnus, Arcee and Springer.

For scale reference they're shown with Classics/Generations toy counterparts. No further info at this time, but given the degree of finish, they're probably on the way soon. Keep reading for all the photos!
