I wish they would just outright give a picture of what they wish to present. This partial shadow and ghost image stuff is starting to bug me.

^^ ya i totally agree, they should just let us see it and let us decide whether or not we want it. blacking it out gets people interested initially, then when its not what they expect people just start getting annoyed

Honestly, the blackout looks like photoshop. There is no actual parts being blacked out, and its just made up! Thats what I think, after carefully looking at it.

Exactly what I was thinking. All these people have right now is an idea. Not even a well thought out one at that. Just, "we want to make an armor upgrade kit for an Ultra Magnus toy because that's how FansProject got all rich and famous and respected and we want to be FansProject". Which is seems to be motto of most of these out-of-nowhere third party companies. FansProject wanna-be's. It looks like they just wanted to stick their flag in the sand before anyone else could call "dibs" on this tremendously original idea of theirs.

The only good thing I could possibly say about this is that I like the way they positioned the pipes because it reminds me of Magnaboss. It gives me ideas for a pre-BW Magnaboss custom.

Meh, everyone tries to pull off an armor and never quite pulls it off like City Commander.

Re: New foc optimus/magnus Trailer/armour

I don't know right now, this preview release is not doing nothing for me. Not getting any warm and fuzzy feelings in my scraplets

I was certainly more excited about FP Code x1 blackout.
preview.

Yes, just looks like another Third Party trying to cash in. Searched online could not find out anything about this company.

Will have to wait to see final images, Might make magnus look better with the shoulder rises, wounder what their costs will be?

Re: New foc optimus/magnus Trailer/armour

I have to say. After studying the silhouettes, if these are real, the design is really bad, based on that alone. The ball joint ankles, and tiny elbow joints make this a joke of a design. Just looking at it, they should be able to beef up the armored limbs. When you make an armor, the focus should be on the actual armor mode first. The trailer mode can come last, in my opinion, since you can make it look what ever way necessary to conform with the robot mode. I don't get why they'd even bother with a ball joint foot. They could of made the feet bigger with a better joint that won't flop eventually.

I was planning to try my hand at an armor, and I definitely had ideas that surpassed what these guys are showing. Hopefully, if its real, this is just an actual teaser, and the final product is very different.
