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?

The Weibo page for Mech Planet has posted images of a new entry in their Hot Soldiers line of Legends-scaled figures: a version of Hearts of Steel Bumblebee! The hammer-wielding Bumblebee turns into a small steam locomotive which somehow manages to be incredibly cute. Keep reading to see the photos!
If the stock version of Grimlock, and by extension the torso mode of the Dinobot combiner Volcanicus aren't really doing it for you, Perfect Effect is again presenting an after market option to try to address that. PC-23 goes beyond PC-21's replacement hands and feet, giving new combiner body add-ons that will let the combined mode form in a slightly different way, as well as adding a huge sword that breaks down to be individual melee weapons for each Dinobot. And to top it off, it also includes replacement thigh and forearm pieces for Grimlock, making the robot taller - and probably facilitating some of the torso mode alterations. The kit is due in April. Keep reading to see the promo images!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of fun stuff going on this week! We announce the winners of our Twitter contest, we are giving away Titans Return Arcee and The Last Knight Valvotron! The voice cast for Power of the Prime was announced! We share our thoughts! Plus we speculate on rumored upcoming Transformers assortments. Also, there's a ton of other news this week including a heavy third party week, with new Combaticons, Aerialbots, and upgrade parts. We talk about the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Ironhide, new photos of Volcanicus and much, much more! 


Coming from Weibo, we have some grey prototype images showing MechPlanet's small-scale Optimus Prime-alike. HS02 seems to be called "Mini Lider" and while the photo quality for many of these isn't great, it seems to be a decent representation of the character design. The photos we have show an energon axe and rifle, plus flip up panels on the forearm in a similar manner to the pop-up communicator screen from the Masterpiece. The chest is also conspicuously hinged, which probably means it has a matrix and storage space for it. You can find all these photos mirrored below!
We recently saw an unofficial, non-transforming, high detail action figure representing Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime by Iron Warrior. Iron Warrior has just shown off another upcoming figure of the same type, this one called "Strife 07" and based on Brawl from the 2007 Transformers movie. This figure likewise does not transform, but seems to focus on sculpt detail and articulation more. Unfortunately the provided photos don't represent the scale of the figure well, so it's unclear at this point whether Brawl will be appropriately large. You can check out the mirrored images below.
