  • FansProject Function-X1 Code (2012)
A new mold by FansProject. Turns from a car to robot. Comes with a Soleron driver and two guns. The car's driver becomes the head of the robot.
The head of Code has a similar, but different mechanism for attaching to his body as the Generation 1 Chromedome has. The result is that while Codes' head can fit on a Generation 1 Headmaster body (without activating the tech spec meter), a Generation 1 head cannot fit on the Code body.
The Soleron driver was recolored into the Soleron trainer for Positum.
  • FansProject Function-X1 Code Virus Version (2013)
A black and red recolor of Code
  • Reprolabels Labels for FP Code (2014)
A set of labels intended to make Code look mode like Chromedome. Includes Autobot faction symbols.[15]
  • FansProject Function-X0 Code (2015)
A minor recolor of Code in colors more accurate to Generation 1 Chromedome.
