    I don't know, but they need to hurry the hell up with it.

    This has become the trend of 3rd party companies. They'll release a totally awesome teaser and then months, months later we'll still be patiently waiting asking "wtf?"

    Tooling. Fact.

    They've invested lots of time and money into this, it is definitely happening, and they're testing prototypes and finalising the sprue layout. This takes time.

    Once we've got pp-05, I'm sure Presser is their major focus, we might even get another minibot or two inbetween to tide us over.

    Patience, the good stuff is coming.

    I'm guessing they're concentrating on the mini bot sets? IDK..

    It fell into that black hole that third-party items tend to fall into.

    Not a true trend with many groups. iGear is probably the most guilty of teasing then leaving and coming back a year later with the product.

    MT showed us 3 things and we are just waiting on Giant.
    FP, they pretty much clammed up in 2011 but have been working hard on projects, according to insiders, and will tease when they are closer to releasing the items.
    MMC teased about a few things but only did the Silhoutte thing with HoS Shockwave, coming soon, and the Insecticons (most likely lost due to the new HoS group having completed prototypes of SS and the Insectitrain.

    So outside of iGear most of the more reputable groups haven't followed the trend that you stated.


    I was going to mention a list given in another thread as to where iGear stands with their projects. I forgot it was you who gave that list. lol

    Can you share? We know Cosmos is the next bot so that is 3, who are they planning for 4? I need me that Brawn.

    Sweet. I love reassurance. :) 

    I think Cosmos is number 4 actually. We haven't seen number 3 yet :/

    This is what it sounds like when the collective collector consciousness realizes the equivalent of what people in the software industry call "vaporware".
