I'm wondering about the possibility of Fansproject putting out a recolor of the Protector armor to go with the recent club toy for Sideburn. I think that it is possible - they repainted and rereleased the City Commander armor, what, three or four times? In any case, I wouldn't complain if they did.

What about the rest of you?

I would definately want it (with a remolded head that looks similar to RID Sideburn). It definately would make business sense, and would likely go as fast as Shadow Scyther. The main problem I see, is scalpers, and if certain questionable business practices occur, like holding back stock to jack up the price later, if it is going to be an exclusive to a particular store... But I guess this has become the norm.

Any buyers would have to be quick on the draw. I think this will happen.

I don't see why they wouldn't, if they released one for the clear Rodimus.

But there are chances they won't either. They are more Side Burns then there are Gentei Wildriders and SG Rodimus figures combined I believe.

Shadow Scyther doesn't look half-bad on Sideburn. Plus, bonus Chain Scythe.

I think the red and gold one already works for "SUPER MODE!" ... but maybe Reprolables here and there adding colour fades would solve the drastic blue/red boarders

If they made a Dark clear blue it would work well for both, perhaps then they'd just need to include both faces

Well, right now I hear KO makers are looking into making a KO Protector, so I'd imagine they'd do recolors, even if the original Protector maker did not.

No, they are still 3rd party, just a DIFFERENT 3rd party.

One that does 0 design and engineering work. So, again, hug those guys.

And I like how you use the phrase "the original Protector makers", as if anything's up for grabs. The original Protector makers are FansProject, the people that sunk the time and money into designing, engineering, and marketing the thing.

Except they're stealing a design and engineering from another third party

So, quite frankly, they can go and get stood on. I want to give money to Fansproject for making the damn thing, not Bob McKnockoffs

Please do so. Supporting Fansproject is a great thing. I was commenting that if Fansproject didn't do a recolor CHMS might do it. Yes, they steal molds. We know that. It's what CHMS does. I only buy stuff from them when it's impossible to get otherwise - ie hundreds or dollars for the real thing, or a new color no one else released it in. Obviously if Fansproject makes a Protector recolor it would be higher quality anyways.
