    Does anyone have a link to the Xtransbots artist? I’d like to see what he posted.

    @Sideswipe523 It would definitely suck if they didn't finish these off, but the first thing that came to my mind:

    Got my ShowZ order in today. Backpack took a little time to get positioned properly, but that's what the YouTube videos are for. Will probably wait till the weekend to transform him into alt mode.

    At this point I automatically dismiss any such rumor. If it were to ever happen the easiest step would be to go to retailers and say if they did not stop carrying 3rd Party products they will no longer be allowed to buy Hasbro products from them. If that happens I will start to pay attention.

    Someone has been saying more or less that same thing every few months or so since 3rd Party started. There was an issue with Grinder with 1 store that got blown out of proportion. Someone actually took the time to create a fake Cease and Desist letter for Terminus Giganticus that was easily debunked, though some people still panicked for weeks about that. I don't know if they are panicky types who see the sky falling at every little thing, trolls who just think it is funny to panic other people, or Has/Tak white knights posting wishful thinking (I believe all 3 have been sources over the years).

    Sufficient bribes to the right government official would get something done, but that is about it.

    That sounds so made up. I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't some Xtransbots fan spreading lies to try and steer people to Xtransbots, or maybe even DX9. That sounds like bad trolling to me.

    Oh my God I knowwwww, that would be crazy

    Not trolling, been in the game since the very beginning, I look at it like this, I bought 3 bots out of 5, will I get the other 2 to complete the set? If not I'll move my money elsewhere, I spend thousands upon thousands to have a nice collection, if I can't have a Fanstoys superion then it's time to move on, not just myself wanting to know but others, we all spend alot of ridiculous cash on these things, I wanna know where my loot is going don't you?, I got the screen shots if you wanna see them, no problem here.

    I'd wait for some actual real evidence before you start worrying, something from retailers or FT themselves. There's no real indication of any problem, and every time some kind of crackdown happens anywhere in the toy industry in China people freak out and think it's all coming apart. This is panic from the issues at Wei-Jang but there's no reason to think it affects anything outside them changing the name of their company and continuing business as usual. We're good!

    I'm not worrying, I know weijiang or however you spell it was or is in jail but I never looked into why, figured it was for something figure wise, now others are reportedly into it as well, but yeah I'm not worried about it, I'm just simply asking, my buddy Ryan will get the Intel but I'm more or so asking for the fandom, if they get made or not is no biggie, I already got zetas in superion mode but to have a complete Fanstoys superion would be dope but honestly I'm looking forward to the stunticons more than anything.

    Alt mode transformation was similar to Skydive's so I gave it a shot without an instructional video. The main wings were a bit fiddly, but overall it wasn't that bad as I thought it would be.

    They are really good stands. I recommend them for alt modes.

    Keep in mind that this company has currently 5 Preorders with all etailers. Even if true, not saying it is or not, the company couldnt possibly come here and say YES, it is true...

    Also, keep in mind, that the same fate will follow all 3rd party.

    Finally, keep in mind, "tomorrow" is very uncertain, all we can do is look at right now.
