Some exciting news tonight from Fansproject, we got some new images of the upcoming Pterosaur Shell homing Transformers Victory decepticon, Yokuryu. Fansproject also gives us some updates regarding the rest of the shells:
“We have received much feedback on the Saurus: Ryo Shells and the all your concerns have been noted by us. Due to the size of the shell, we could not include the shell with each Dino-ichi figure as the user cost would be impossibly unacceptable. Originally the plans of making the shells was cancelled as it just was not financially viable.
We are huge fans of the original shells and so we just could not let the idea go and so we did end up creating the designs and a few proto-types were made. This bad business decision was sealed for us at that time. We really can only afford to make 500 sets of the shells at this time. We are sorry to be so blunt with the truth but honestly this project has really compromised our process, the factory, and of course, our fan’s wallets.
We have been asked if all the shells for the Saurus: Ryo set will be made and at this time we can confirm that yes, all the shells will be made for this set. We hope that the few who want these and can enjoy them, will know how much we want your set to be fully complete. We know this is not one of our best business decisions but being crazy fans of the original set, we had to see this project through completely and properly. We hope that even a small number of people can be pleased with this very extensive and very expensive set.”
