    3rd Party Transformers

    Fansproject-Steel-Core.jpgTFCC-Hercules.jpgimage-1.jpgreduced-image_5260_106.jpg


    Anyone else collect these? I love em! I couldn't for the life of me believe that I dropped over a grand for these bad boys within a span of 3 months...Normally I would save them for more He-Man stuff but OMG these things are so much cooler than what Hasbro Makes these days.

    I have a bunch of third party Transformers. I don't have the ones you pictured but I have City Commander, Warbot, Phantom, Eagle, Hench, UFO, Sprayer, Ranger, and the new Chromedome one (forgot what he is called.) Just ordered Grind Rod and I should be getting him in a few days. I plan to pick up some more in the near future. I agree that it puts Hasbro's stuff to shame.

    I don't collect them (They're ok but they're usually too exspensive since I consider them knock offs(usually cool knock offs but knock offs the same)

    I dont think that the things that come from Fansprojects are KO. The quality of these 3rd party are better than the hasbro originals.

    I've bought a few unofficial WSTs. I've had G1 and Diaclone Ultra Magnus, and the G2 Jets for some time, and just bought G1 and G2 Optimus Prime.

    I've purchased a couple fansproject items, protector trailer, Warbot defender, the g3 trailer and couple upgrade kits that have helped modify some characters. Love to get more, but damn they are pricey. I would purchase a true 3rd party head pack if they were done right, head fits without sticky tak and sculpted just right.

    I ended up getting doubles of each

    I've always said "no freaking way" I'd buy any of them with the prices they're asking for. Long story short- I currently have about 20 in my pile of loot at BBTS. I DECIDED to get them. Too cool and too nostalgic. Getting all the ones I've always wanted but could never get until now. They are top notch quality, except for the Impossible Toys stuff. Can you provide a link for the Powermaster Prime??!!

    I have City Commander and Warbot assaulter and they're REALLY nice--esp City Commander. I really don't think Hasbro could make a better Ultra Magnus than what Fan's project did. I want to get the Causality (insecticon) figures from them too, but they're prety high now (like $250 for the lot of 3).

    Would love to...LOVE to, but I simply can't when considering all the other toys I collect. Someday I'd like to pick one and splurge, but I have no idea who i'd choose. Many of the pics already shown in this thread are of fantastic figures that I'd like to own - and I have little to no knowledge of the characters they represent - I just think they are some freakin' cool toys. It's just not gona be something that I'll be able to even think about until I get my normal collecting under control.

    Hegemon second run to be see next week so we will find out if it is indeed the quintessential megaton. I have a feeling it will be just because Orion by Toyworld was so good.

    My latest stuff so far mostly TFC Toys gestalts. I want a Maketoys Hypernovae in a bad way. I also highly recommend Toyworld Orion. It's my new CHUG prime. Added Prometheus Gumball leg from TFC Toys.

    Special focus on Toyworld Orion. This was the Classics Optimus prime we should have gotten.

    Got the G2 Boosticus set from BBTS and it is a huge improvement for the FOC Bruticus. A must buy for anyone wanting to improve their set.

    This set is great but I wish they would do one for the wreckers repaints so they can get the improvements but of course with the tank and APC as the arms and the helicopter and spaceship as the legs since the instruction for The Wreckers were mostly using the alternate limb transformations for the four smaller wreckers. The should also provide a new chest plate piece so that the don't reuse the Bruticus one and probably go with one with more rounded styling.

    The guy who designed the Boosticus set designed one and has a video on u tube. I just don't know if there is the want for the set. After buying this set, I'd definitely buy that one.

    I pre-ordered my first 3rd party Transformer ever: Toyworld's Infinitor (Fortress Maximus). Most 3rd party TF's cost more than I'm willing to pay but for a small scale Fortress Maximus that I can actually handle I couldn't resist. I regret missing out on the Grand Maximus version but I probably couldn't have afforded both anyway especially since the MOTUC Battle Ram is coming out next month. Man, I can't wait for this thing.

    Finished my Feral Rex "Predaking" combiner (minus the optional sixth character), and this guy is just...amazing. I mean, expensive, but holy cow, this guy is incredible beyond words. Huge, detailed, heavy, and just an incredible piece of work.

    I'd really like to get that Utopia "Metroplex" character, but another big expensive piece like him is more than I can afford right now.

    I just realized that if we really want a carton accurate Jetfire/Skyfire we need a 2nd ship attached to his back. I hope some of the 3rd party guys could come up with one for the recent Leader Class Jetfire, it could attach were the jet boosters are and maybe turn into another robot as well as a artillery cannon the Jetfire could man and aim. It could even come with his blaster from the cartoon that that the voyager class one had.
