Seeing as what the real Third Party companies actual do is run the factories that produce Hasbro and TakaraTomy products, Transformers or otherwise. Is there any chance we can start refering to these not-Hasbro/TakaraTomy Transformers toys as simply "Unofficial"? "Unofficial TF product" "Unofficial TF toy company" "Third Party" implies that these companies (FansProject, iGear, etc.) are authorized by contract to produce Transformers products, which we all know is clearly not the case. Anyway. I have an idea of how this thread is going to go, but I'm willing to give this a shot. Share those thoughts on the subject.
