    No longer TMT. The designer sold the design and is now under a new company named STS.

    If this paint will be good enough i will buy this instead of sts. I already have ut and tw, ut will go in truck mode. I think bmb will be signifiantly cheaper than sts or aat 2.0 versions.

    Just when I already fell in love with the Battle Damaged one, this one is looking to come out in Nov or December. I think I'll still keep mine and get him, but at some point I'll see if I can transform them from time to time to switch things up.

    I’m kind of on the fence with this guy the more I think on it. It’s bigger sure, but I think Challenger is plenty big enough already. And considering this is Black Mamba I don’t think the build quality will be up to par, and I say this as one who hasn’t had an issue with a single product of theirs.
    Though I’ll consider it if they fix the feet. Like make the toe bend more stable and maybe flip the grill so the chromed part isn’t ON THE FUCKING FLOOR.

    Actually dead or just “it’s been a long time so we’ll assume it died”?

    Come on man, it's been like 4 months since STS actually gave us an update. Other companies have gone for way longer without any updates after a prototype. Look at Toyworld. Hell, even UT Galvatron went quiet for like a year after his gray prototype came out. Expected release date is first quarter 2022, so lets have a bit of patience until then before calling a company dead lmao

    TMT just did a lot of posting and hype up then just went silent on their designs. I little faith in it. Plenty of random 3p’s announce stuff and then just die off. Pretty sure I remember their prime being promised this year and we’ve just gotten nothing as of late. Only 1 update and then nothing for months is usually not a good sign for a new 3p as well. No news of who’s envolved, who they are, no interaction from them, just a post of the prime and then silence.

    But doesn’t Unique Toys operate similarly?

    Didn’t they reveal a Cliffjumper retool of their Bee a couple months ago? Ya know, the one infamous for being constructed like shit, and TC apparently lying about fixing the issues.

    They announced Megatron and have been actively chatting with people on weibo. Even AAT is responding to people.

    I'm probably going to stop talking about this after this post since it's off topic, but I just think you should understand that different companies tend to work differently. Just because these guys are staying quiet and operating differently doesn't mean they're dead. They could be, but 4 months of nothing is way too short to decide that. Just have a bit of patience, saying statements like "STS is dead" is a statement that doesn't have much backing to it (yet) and could spread false rumors or give the uninformed the wrong idea. If they're still silent after the first quarter of 2022, that is when you can claim things about their status.

    Technically not yet, they have been really quiet tho, aside from the Cliffjumper they showed off a couple of months ago. They still exist, they just haven't shown anything off other than their BB mold, and a teaser render of their Prime from several months back, unfortunately.

    Fair enough. I’m more so just pessimistic since a lot of non G1 companies seem to die way too easily as of late.
    A few months ago is a bit generous….
