    It’s the type of society we’ve become, tribalism at its worse. It happens on the 3P side also but just not as intense because there are more competitors to dilute the cult-like mentality. There are more people here that buy whatever they like regardless of manufacturer. As a result, more often then not, you can have reasonable conversations.

    I've noticed that official MP threads have a tendency to be really...saccharine and gushy, at least it's become that way over the past year or two. 3P threads tend to keep things more real (although they also veer off topic way more).

    There's also the added element that a lot of Takara diehards are just straight up morally opposed to 3P. Or if not fully opposed, still have an inherent bias against 3P.

    With Fanstoys fanboys I can at least take them at face value. Not so much the case with Takara fanboys.

    While there's a lot of real discussion in there, there's a bit more in terms of posts of general excitement and reminiscing of the cartoon (which I am completely guilty in getting in on, haha) in comparison to what we have on the 3P threads. But replace the gush and saccharinity with how absolutely rambunctious things can get here from time to time and double that count, and I do agree that it gets a bit out of hand from time to time. Thankfully everything ends up getting back on track after a little bit.

    @Dpuff still deserves his news credits tho.

    Our man on the inside’s website says the word on the streets of Guangdong is that jets and tanks are causing the commotion.

    I’m mad at you. I was just thinking about Berserk earlier today, this isn’t fair.

    Why are you mad at me? It was your thought bubble that I used as the source of the rumor.

    Has there been any solid info when this is getting released? I am overflowing with PO's and minimal money to pay them off. I need to know when this particular disaster will strike.

    Just an interesting rumor from someone who does their research. I just posted it so we can have interesting discussions about it like civilized people about the upcoming releases, while XTB is tearing FT apart. Can you please pass me the Grey Poupon?

    It's gotten so bad, apparently dalianjj told Keith he needed a new job and that he could start anytime.

    What am I supposed to take away from this image? What new thing is it communicating? (Let's pretend for a moment that I don't know how to read Chinese)

    You should take away some vague positive vibes that maybe something to do with Blitzwing is happening somewhere!

    Someone whispered the word "Blitzwing" in a dark room, and the Internet got very excited!

    But seriously, there is an image of Blitzwing with some writing in Chinese. What about it was this worth making a post?

    Looks like you are the one getting excited.

    Marcelo posted on his website that some POs for FT-21 are popping up overseas so I was just giving a heads up to be on alert if preorders hit stateside soon.

    Plus we need something to keep our morale up while XTB are stealing the show.

    I thought now would be a good time to settle an issue that has been bugging me for a while: should it be
    1. Fans Toys (with the space)
    2. FansToys (without the space)
    Is there a way to poll this? I see it as both all over the place!

    Pretty sure it's the second, but autocorrect is so easy that mobile posting lends itself to FAN adding the S with a space for the next word, and the second option once you type TOY is always TOYS.

    Confident I've done it multiple times myself, but we're lazy texters in the main, so unless you have autocorrect off or you type FansToys so often that it's in your autocorrect dictionary, you'll probably type Fans Toys every now and again

    Oh. I wasn't able to divine this intent from the cryptic image or the playful message you wrote in your post, which is why I was asking for a plain-language explanation. Thanks!

    I think that last sentence should be in blue.
