    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'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.
