    I must have been under a rock, but I haven´t heard anything from these two. What happened to them?

    Igear rebranded into Toyworld, but allegedly Zeta Toys took their iGear molds when they split from TW.

    Oh, did they?! (the iGear to ToyWorld part) I had no idea. That explains a good deal, then. Huh. It's crazy how many of them become this that and the other thing. You need a scorecard to keep up with all of the changes at this point. =\

    FansProjects' next releases are ToyDojo exclusives, the G2 versions of the rest of their Stunticons

    The iGear = TW thing was from when TW's owner was ranting about ZT reissuing their stuff, sometime last year on the chinese baidu boards, im lazy to find the thread though. It does make sense if you look at igear and TW's early generations-styled toys.

    Igear == Toyworld.
    FansProject == Band basically broke up and all they've been doing is putting out old classics designs and greatest hits.

    To build on what everyone else is already saying FP is still alive, but they are just releasing recolors at the moment. I really hope they make a comeback (put a pin in that), because I like the few things of their's I own.

    Though, I remember reading that some (most? all?) of the FP designers left to creat Fans Hobby.

    Toy Dojo? Or Ages3+Up?

    Igear is most likely toyworld. Fansproject was coming back but that was shot down when Maas toys imploded, their sister company.
