    The problem is, 'hiatus to restructure' could very well end in them never doing anything again. They're not 'officially' done, but that doesn't mean they aren't done.

    As is the case with any of these companies, our only confidence that more products will come out is the continued communication we receive. If they refuse to communicate, customers have every reasonable right to take that to mean they're done.

    MakeToys is not dead. Hope that is official enough for you.

    FP is not dead. Just not doing anything at the moment. Restructure as was posed already.

    No one is screwed by Snarl. Snarl was NOT finished as there was still many tweaks going on including some big changes with how the tail worked. Currently this is in Hiatus as is most of FP's work as things are being worked out. Consider it taking a break. Again, as I have said before FP does not work on your schedule, they work on their own. If you don't like it then I am sorry about that but it won't change how things are done. Snarl will come when FP is good and ready to have it done.

    3P as a whole right now is pretty messy. too many guys all fighting for the same pool of limited dollars and so some people have had to rethink about what they are doing including release schedules. gone is the days you can show images 2 years before the figure was ready. 4 to 6 months is the longest you have now, and even then, others have their's ready and waiting to be put onto the production line.

    That is how you create a Gorilla. KFC's is more like an oversized orang utan that has been eating too many McDonald.

    Again...with the toy inspired face as opposed to the Sunbow version:banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: 

    Looks good in all modes, particularly the ape, but that backpack in robot mode is why I was put off this project in the first place, will keep an eye on it but it's in by no means, shape or form, a definite buy!

    Good lord I love everything about this design, Gorilla mode is bad ass as fuck. He's gonna go perfect next to my Gorira and Primal.

    Luckily its a headmaster so hopefully they will release a set of just cartoon faces or complete toon mini headmaster figures to replace all their toy ones.

    The fact that Brainstorm and Highbrow are on the way has me moderately optimistic that Snapdragon will follow in time.

    This TFCon has been less disappointing than the last one.

    Glad to see this is progressing, but I was hoping for a prototype. The design just looks so much better than KFC's to me.

    This would make an awesome XMas present, but it appears we might get Highbrow first.

    Until I see more of the convention, I am less sure about those. There was an early prototype of Reticle wrapped in a rubber band a long time ago before Contact Shot came out. I need MT to show me they can finish off sets. Today they me extremely happy!
