    Does anybody know what happened to Final Victory? I just found out that they made a Warpath and a Huffer that would fit in my collection and, hoping that they maybe made a Pipes too, i found out that these two (and a Brawn) are their only figures. And as far as i know there was complete radio silence since then. Not to mention that their three figures are basically impossible to find. Only ShowZ as a really nice price but their sold out there

    They only made the 3-Pack of Huffer/Brawn/Warpath

    I dont believe they ever hinted at anything else and I doubt we’ll ever see them again under that company name or in Masterpiece offerings.

    It would help if we knew who was behind Final Victory. That goes a long way to tell us the why and where of these figures. (A lot of companies will create figures they know aren't quite up to snuff/their usual works and release them under a "shell" company of sorts.)

    DX9/Unique Toys were one and the same, FansProject/Make Toys were more or less the same (teams separated but same materials and factories in a lot of cases), etc. It would be nice to know who Final Victory was.

    it could be another way around. FinalVictory released this testing project and become a more successful company under another name. Too bad we won't know the truth behind.

    *nods* that too. That's an excellent point.

    One thing's for sure, there definitely appears to be a decent market for low cost, not KO MPs, so even if Final Victory is gone, I am personally hopeful others will emerge.

    The sad thing is they had a pretty cool idea that unfortunately isn’t supported by MP collectors at all. Affordable MP’s figures that while not amazing are fun and not insanely expensive. Unfortunately all people wanted is looks.

    They're a bit more finnicky than your next 3P offering, squeaky plastic and okay tolerances. But I dig how the minibots got upscaled and they were quite hefty for their size with all the die cast. Reminded me of latter-era G1 stuff without the MP markup. It's certainly a niche set but those 3 have a special place in my collection.

    i can see that. Personally their Huffer and Warpath would fit perfectly in my collection, Brawn not that much but it's a nice bonus. Too bad that they're sold out everywhere and that they didn't make a Pipes to go with their Huffer
