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?

More Third Party News
Tonight via Alucardlee on Weibo, we've got a photo showing a fully assembled Ragnaros. If you're blanking on the name, that's understandable, as it is but one unlicensed MP-style Bruticus among many. This particular Not-Bruticus is the work of Unique Toys, bringing a little bit different style to the party with something taking a bit more from the cartoon look - a fact in evidence by the coloring of the chest piece including colors from Not-Blast Off, for instance. Keep reading to see the full size photo.
Finally on the Transform Dream Wave front, we have images of a prototype stage upgrade package for Volcanicus. The Power of The Primes Dinobot combiner is in line to get the usual array of new hands and feet, and torso additions to fill out the combined form's proportions. But also included with this set will be weapons for the individual robots, allowing every Dinobot to be armed with sword, gun, or more likely both. Even in the early state shown it seems like a pretty exciting option, and timely enough to compete with the likes of Perfect Effect or any others throwing their hats in the Fix-The-Dinobots game. Click through to see it now!
Transform Dream Wave has new images up of samples for their upgrade sets for the Technobots and Aerialbots. Consisting of new combiner hands and feet, plus torso armor pieces, these sets follow a well worn path for this kind of upgrade, with each part having a dubious transformation to some kind of weapon or other bulky add-on for the individual robots. The parts shown are demonstrated using Unite Warriors releases. Colorwise they should be compatible with Combiner Wars, but Computron's chest armor may encounter difficulties due to the sculpt differences between Hasbro and TakaraTomy releases. You can find all the photos below.
Transform Dream Wave has updated their Weibo with images of upcoming products they're working on currently. Among them is what looks to be a retail-ready (or close to it) upgrade set for Leader class Sixshot. The kit includes a new head, swords, and poseable replacement hands so Sixshot can make all of the ninja hand gestures. Based on the photos it's not entirely clear how good they are at holding the swords, however. The parts are shown installed on an LG Sixshot, but will probably be adequately compatible with the coloring of Titans Return Sixshot as well. Click through to take a look!
Shared on Weibo, we have new photos from TF Dream factory showing the car mode for their unofficial Roadbuster from Dark of The Moon. The sample is shown only in its vehicle mode, designed to reflect the Wrecker in combat form with weapons, boosters, and armor all deployed, matching the other two unlicensed movie Wreckers TF Dream Factory is producing. You can click through to find the quick gallery just below.
