    Not sure if this is news or a rumor, or neither - but I know a lot of Impossible Toy fans come through this area, and someone might be able to clarify the situation.

    I've been waiting since last summer for BBTS to get in stock Impossible Toy's light up energon cubes. The release date for the restock was pushed back from October to December, to (now) February.

    Due to myself being impatient, I did a little searching on what IT's stance is on this. I see they had some major sales a few months ago, and lately haven't heard anything.

    About a week ago, I went to their site and saw this :

    Impossible Toy's Website

    I sent them an email a few weeks ago as well, w/o a reply. Are they done?

    This isn't General Discussion. :|

    But this is highly suspicious...

    Could just be busy for them... but the pushes for their merch...

    I was waiting for their A.R.C or Arcee or whatever.. I've noticed the site's been done for a good month or so.. looks like they just can't compete with the other third parties out there..

    We were bound to see some of these companies atrophy eventually. There can't really be enough of a market to support an infinite number of them...

    yep, they've been MIA for a few months now. No word why either.

    You could try contacting them through what I believe was their eBay account, spiritbreaker22, that they sold their products with.

    They definitely had some cool stuff on the horizon before disappearing too.

    Their Quints are awesome and I was/am really looking forward to their G1 Arcee.
    I noticed their site being offline a while ago, but didn't think much of it. It hadn't been updated in a long while anyway.

    Oh well, hope we get some kind of confirmation either way soon.

    Thank Primus! They've got a lot of upcoming stuff that I really want, and I've been impressed with their merchandise in the past.
