It's incredible, the recent slew of third party Transformers product being released.
While I generally loathe third party products that knock off existing Hasbro / Takara products (eg: iGear MP-seekers Thundercracker), I'm usually pleased with innovative original third party designs (eg: most of the FansProject stuff).
In quite an unprecedented move, I have actually pre-ordered a number of upcoming third party products that will be released as soon as by the end of this week. Unlike many other collectors, I don't have to wait for them to ship, but merely have to rock up to the shop and pick them up after work, all in a day's work style and all.
I pre-ordered these:
- TFC Toys - Uranos Blackbird, aka not-Silverbolt.
- Master Mind Creations - Terminus Hexatron, aka not-Sixshot
- Toy World - TW-H01, Hardbone, aka not-Hardhead
- FansProject - Causality CA-09: Car Crash, aka not-Breakdown
- FansProject - Causality CA-10: T-Bone, aka not-Wildrider
- FansProject - Function X-2: Quadruple U, aka not-Weirdwolf
- FansProject - Function X-3: Smart Robin, aka not-Brainstorm
- Make Toys - MB-01C: Mobine Chaos, aka not-The Fallen
Looking forward to end of the week!
