FPcore Project Ground Hammer Backstory Fiction on Recoiler and Riftshot Characters
Scaleface - Thursday, January 30, 2014


FPcore have updated their site with the backstory fiction for their Recoiler and Riftshot characters that are part of the FPcore Project Ground Hammer. Get the insights on who and where these new characters came from with profile information on both of the Twins below for the full preview now.
RIFTSHOT & RECOILER

There are many things that can make an Alpha or Beta stand apart from the crowd but the simplest has always been the Crystals, how much power they generate and how much they can hold in reserve.

Known in military circles as “The Twins”, RIFTSHOT and RECOILER are the last, active duty pair with Parallel Resonance crystals. When in proximity to each other these crystals produce an additional 27.3% power output. Riftshot and Recoiler rose through the ranks together, both refusing to accept separate postings. Due to their disparate skill sets this made them difficult to place in the military structure. In the field, the sub space communications link between them makes the two eerily quiet, excellent for covert operations but terrible for squad relations.

RIFTSHOT, ever eager to face down an opponent twice his size, specializes in heavy ordinance and explosives; if it explodes he likes it. Unofficially, he considers himself Recoilers bodyguard.

For RECOILER, how an enemy is dealt with is not important, only that it’s done. Choosing to equip himself with long range weaponry, he has set all of the Alpha distance firing records by a wide margin.

Their skills, along with their often unused excess energy output made them ideal candidates for an offshoot of the PARALLAX project headed by the Soleron Special Projects engineer RAZER called “PROJECT GROUND HAMMER”. The operation was as conceived as a way to provide REVOLVER with field assistance to support his clandestine operations. RIFTSHOT and RECOILER’S frames were extensively modified to match that of REVOLVER, further reinforcing the “Twins” nickname. Publicly these changes were designed to allow for the exchange of modular weapons arrays between the three bots. In actuality, RAZER, acting as Revolvers quartermaster, developed a powerful, short-term use, Parallax-derived armor (see: PROJECT GROUND HAMMER) and conscripted the “Twins” to act as storage and delivery systems. Now permanently assigned to REVOLVER, the duo seem to have found a place that they belong and a leader they respect.

Right now only one store in Hong Kong has Revolver in stock, and no one else even has it for preorder! Hopefully that will change soon.

My question is: Where and when can I pre-order Revolver?

Thanks to Butterfly Effect TF Photobox, we have the opportunity to look at lots of photos from an event being held in Singapore. Bot Fest 2017 is showing off products from several major manfacturers, with representation from Fans Hobby, MakeToys, MMC in both Reformatted and Ocular Max labels, KFC, X-Transbots, and even more! Highlights include a Reformatted series Thunderclash, prototype for MakeToys Highbrow, and for those in the market for upsize bootlegs, there's even a Shattered Glass Optimus on display. In all there's over 100 photos in our gallery, check them all out just below in the full post!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Recent leaks are starting to fill in the gaps from Power of the Primes. We've got a peek at Abominus, and the Elita-1, and Inferno-based combiners. Speaking of peeks, we barely got our first peek about Cyberverse and we speculate wildly as to what it means. Also on the show Don has Ouchicus My Walletus, plus Diecast got Scoria Take II, and traded in his car for good measure. Now that's #Dononomics!


Well, the problem of not having anything to display with Galaxy Meteor seems as though it'll be solved in due time! Butterfly Effect TF Photobox on Facebook has posted an image showing a variety of new MMC figures currently in the works, including versions of Cybertron Override as well as Drift, Thunderclash, and more! Keep reading to see.
PS-11 Omne is next up in MMC's Ocular Max Perfection Series! Omne is MP scaled and features die-cast chest and feet and transforms from a UFO to robot and back!
Over the summer, DX9 revealed their entry in the new market of Masterpiece-compatible unofficial Omega Supremes, Gabriel. It then went quiet for a while. But now we know why, and there's a new prototype photo to top it off! Apparently some modification were being made to the design after the first reveal, which naturally led to delays in showing any more promotional content for the product. A color testshot is promised sometime in the near future, but right now you can click through and see the non-color prototype mirrored below.
