In a rare update on the FansProject website we're treated to a cryptic preview of their upcoming series Function-X. At one time this was believed to be a homage to the Transformers Technobots combiner team, but now we know this is an attempt to update the original G1 Headmasters. If you're unfamiliar, Headmasters were a Transformers sub-group that featured larger transforming robots with removable heads that could turn into smaller robots that would ride inside the larger bot's alternative mode. It's a crazy concept that was also used in the Targetmaster (transforming guns) and Powermaster (transforming engines) lines. However, it also gave way to some really cool figures like Fortress Maximus and Scorponok!

From the image on their website we can get an idea of the first five figures in the line. The very first release will be Chromedome, renamed Code (CrOmeDomE), followed by unnamed versions of Brainstorm, Mindwipe, Weirdwolf, and Skullcruncher. Oddly, Hardhead and Highbrow appear to be missing from the lineup for now. TFormers also unearthed an image of some concept art of each figure which also prominently features a sixth figure, Minerva, from Japan's Transformers: The Headmasters anime series. The concept art also shows Brainstorm in dark gray (a reference to something I can't quite put my finger on), as well as Skullcruncher in the red, white, and blue colors of Alligatorcon. I would love a figure of Alligatorcon!

With this we're a few steps closer to seeing every figure from G1 updated in one way or another. I'm pretty excited to see just how these look in physical form. Hopefully the wait isn't too long.
