With my budget I'm afraid it's only Hasbro for now.

Got this link from TFW - FansProject booth at TFCon
http://s580.photobucket.com/albums/s...roma_cg/tfcon/

Springer looks like a completly new toy, there seems to be a combiner of sorts in the works, Nemesis G3 Trailer and Protector upgrade looks fantastic.

Wouldn't Hasbro make an issue of FanProjects creating whole new toys based on G1 characters? Also would hardcore fans accept them since they are not just upgrades but complete unlicensed figures? I know that unofficial brand new figures is not a new thing but neither of those companies have had the same level of recognition and exposure as Fan Projects has earned.

Although I fully appreciate what FanProjects is doing in giving us toys that Hasbro absolutely refuses to do for whatever reason, it seems as if they are tempting Hasbro to throw down the legal gauntlet and I fear for their 'safety' since Fan Projects is such a great company which is in tune with fans.

BTW: I am not trying cause trouble, just asking.

It all looks awesome, but I share Kup's concerns.

I too am with Kup, it will only be a matter of time before Hasbro puts their foot down and then it will be a world of hurt unless they have spoken to hasbro about it.

As do I. As much as I like fans project and would like to see them do full figures of the characters they had on display maybe they should concentrate on characters that never got toys such as botanica from beast machines or megatron from battle stars. I doubt hasbro would come down on the as hard for doing them as they could possibly do for makeing springer, wreck-gar ect. That being said I really hope that springer and the rest get made because they do look really good and fans projects work is top notch.

Personally i like fan projects transformers and will buy most of their stuff as most of it is an upgrade of hasbros items. And if they make figure that hasbro wont release then more power to them
Only thing I don't like is the new Prime trailer it just doesn't do anything for me, but am looking forward to the rodimus upgrade.

Also is there anymore pics of the unicron figure at the bottom of the pic below
