    I saw this update from TFSource:

    "iGear's Big Trailer is now postponed indefinitely, and it is uncertain if they will ever release this product. If you have a preorder with us, we have sent an email with next steps, if you don't, we won't accept any pay now preorders, and please do not preorder with any items combined shipped as it is not certain this item will ever be released."

    I wonder what the deal is? Maybe they've realized they have a good selling item in the "Faith Leader" series (aka KO mini-MP Prime), so it would be more cost efficient to make downsized trailers as well?

    Maybe Hastak has begun to apply a little subtle pressure for them to cut out the Blatant KOs?

    unlikely of course, the most likely answer is they have either decided to go to something they view as more profitable or they did not get enough preorders for it.

    But the Faith Leader and upcoming Coneheads are by their Partners. So if that is true, it doesn't make sense how iGear hasn't had time to work on the trailer, or announce any new iGear only products. I think there hasn't been any new updates on those mini Sharkticons either.



    Actually, ask Hasbro and Takara to make a MP jetfire first, otherwise iGear won't have anything to copy.

    Maybe it's just more laziness on their part, "Why make blatant KO's ourselves, just have our 'partners' do it"?
