Fansproject’s evil version of their Protector Armor, Shadow Scythe, makes more sense thematically when combined with Shattered Glass Rodimus… but it also comes with a faceplate to match it up with Henkei Wildrider.
Maybe it’s supposed to represent an alternate reality based on that G1 episode where Wildrider found the Matrix of Leadership, only he used it instead of taking it to Galvatron.
Or maybe it’s easier to sell an armor for two exclusives than one for each.
But even if it doesn’t make that much sense, it does look good.
I was thinking about that when playing around with Fansproject T-Bone…
Just don’t ask where evil Roller came from.
Trust me, it’s a dead end.
