fansprojec bruticus maximus upgrade 2

latest pictures of bruticus maximus upgrade set by fansproject (click me for the full news). looks very cool & he now has many toys to play with. i'm a bit sad that the head mold doesn't look like bruticus in the cartoons, since the upgrade is suppose to follow g1. another thing to note is that currently the upgrades are sold separately, set a is blast off & set b is swindle. have no idea why they're not sold as a set... maybe they want to maximize sales. anyway enjoy the photos.

universe sea spray

just read about a new and upcoming figure based on seaspray, the g1 autobot naval tactician (click me & me for more details). however there are a few exceptions. him name is now sea spray instead of seaspray. he's also a much bigger voyager class than his original legend minibot size. while the colour scheme is the same the propotion is not; mostly white & blue with little patches of yellow. the head is different from cartoon & g1 toy, he's now wearing diving goggles & oxygen mask.
i have mixed feelings about this new version of seaspray & not sure if i'm gonna get him when he's available, we'll just have to wait & see.

mcdonalds transformers animated

mcdonalds tranformers animated is here

2008 us release

first up is prime

nice design & transformation

i can't believe it, but its finally here. 2 years after it was released in the us mcdonalds malaysia finally released the transformers animated toys. sadly only 4 figures are available as apposed to 6 in the us - prime, megatron, bumblebee & ratchet (starscream & lugnut are m.i.a).
robot mode

truck mode

side view

same toy as first release

the first to be released was prime & when i got mine last thursday they had just opened a box full of prime. from the stamp its clear that this is the same prime released on 2008, not a new figure. i'm actually pleased with the figure as it has a decent design & transformation process. it certainly doesn't feel cheap & is a nice addition to any collection. can't wait to get the next figure

fansprojec bruticus maximus upgrade

fansproject new project

looks like...

blast off!

last month fansproject announced that they will produce a new set of upgrades for bruticus maximus, like the ones they made for superion maximus...only this time bruticus will receive new robot members along with accessories. this is certainly a major step by fansproject giving new figures as upgrades instead of accessories only.
accessories for onslaught

new feature

nice, like omega supreme

the first figure announced was blast off which will be a shuttle (click me to read more). here he's called explorer and will be the right arm of bruticus. accompanying accessories meant for onslaught can be transformed into a launch pad for blast off. the accessories among others will be a new head & twin back cannons for bruticus.
swindle's next

next to a more detailed blast off

bruticus maximus with new accessories

recently fansproject released new info where swindle will be the next figure & he's called crossfire (click me to read more). as in the cartoon he'll be bruticus's new right leg. new accessories for bruticus will be a blaster, groin guard, fists & foots as well as a knife @ short sword.
looks more g1

"you want some?"

new twin back cannons

melee weapon for close combat

its very clear that fansproject want to make bruticus maximus more g1-like and i'm sure this is a welcome for g1 fans. now to hope the price will be in arms reach.
