    i think we can all say that the prime figures are in demand. i might be posting this in the wrong place anyway but here it goes. the comprimise that US collectors had to make with the pRID toys was heart breaking. but the comparison between the FE verson and the Prid version of most of the toys had stenghts and weaknesses to each. example-prid cliff was a good show model but the fe toy puts it to shame. i say that wht dosent a third party company make a line of custom prime figures that collects all the neccessary elements such as scale, weapons, accuracy, ect. i think collectors will eat these us. if i had the chance to get a 30 dollar arcee that looked great with 2 inscale guns and blades with non angelic wings, i would buy that in a 1/100000 of a heart beat. the potential is endless and i hope everyone makes the hype and feels the same way. and who knows... it could happen... maybe?

    Considering that the Prime toy line has been releasing every character in the show at a rapid rate, I don't see a place for third party versions at all.

    3rd party Prime toys still won't be Has/Tak FE versions, so those pining for those toys will still not be satisfied.

    I don't see that happening.

    However I do see upgrades and add on kits for both the FE and RID Prime figures to make them more accurate.

    I get what you're saying, but the reason the FE figures are so wanted is because of dead-on cartoon accuracy... but, with third party figures, due to fear of Hasbro shutting their shit down quicker than swatting a fly in their face, rarely make toys that are especially cartoon-accurate. That's why I said those who want FE toys still wouldn't have that want fulfilled.

    No. At this point they've already started using the molds to make shitty excuses for Generations figures.

    I'm not sure that's where 3rd party price are at. You might have to double that estimate.

    Most third party figs are G1, with the exception of a few dr wu items. I don't see it anytime soon.

    For what 3rd Parties charge, why would you not just instead import or buy FE figs off eBay?

    3rd parties could produce Animated toys that never were (like the Constructicons), or even unproduced movie characters (Dew-Bot, Mirage, transforming kitchen appliances, etc.).
