I would say that the biggest allure to 3P figures is the fact that they rank at a collector's lever (aka not kid toys). We adult collectors love em and eat them up knowing that HasTak won't cater to our needs like the 3P groups will. Now let us play what if. What if HasTak goes head to head with the 3P groups by releasing high ticket items that are geared to the collectors market? And not only 2 a year but so many that you will be forced to pick sides. Let us say that HasTak decided to give us G1 again, and all of it. Combiner gift sets, Citybots from the ever so desired Scoponok to the biggest beast of them all, Fortress Maximus. Now add to this a full throttled release schedule for the Masterpiece series. This will include all of our G1 favorites returning with fully licensed and official Alt modes AND G1 screen accurate Bot modes. Say this series will give us different size classes from Minibots, to your medium sized G1 Autobot cars, Larger "Leader" figures and spot on combiner made out of 4 mediums and one large MPs. While all this is going on we will still be getting TF: Prime figures, FOC, Classics and whatever Takara only releases are on the horizon (al la Jet Vehicon, Breakdown and Unicron). You can see how much money would be required just to keep up with this new focus on the collectors market. Even as an adult with disposable income, trying to collect them all with be a practice in futility (for most of us). So my question is, where will your money go? Will you still eat up all things 3P knowing that HasTak is now in the game giving you everything your high end collector's heart desires? Will you prioritize 3P offering over HasTak offering? Bottom line, as a high end adult collector, where does your loyalty (and money) lay? Speaking for myself. If HasTaK were ever to go the way that I mentioned, 3P groups will start losing a lot of my money. MMC would still rank high on my priority list but that is because they are doing an HOS line that HasTak would never do. FP is FP, I think they will always get my money. So far any group filling holes on my Classics shelf will get money but that all depends on what HasTak shows us coming down the pipe line. iGear and their PP line will sink and sink fast seeing as how it is competing with the official MP line and they are pretty much the same scale and more expensive. iGear still wins with the MiniWarriors but realy how many more spots are left to be filled in the Classics line? It is a big what if but if it were ever to happen I can see Hastak pulling me back in 95% and dropping a lot of 3P stuff. That other 5% is FP, I don’t think I would ever drop them. What about you guys?
