    TFC wasn't there and they're releasing something new. And they've been seen less than Maketoys. People are just jumping to conclusions to support their narrative. Maketoys may not be making anything new RIGHT NOW but they have preorders up for older items everywhere. No way did BBTS put up the capital for more of the Guardia bots if Maketoys had folded. They wouldn't even be taking money for them. And I trust a retailer to know whose still in business more than speculating fans.

    GT too has been very very quiet since they decided to cancel their social media and everyone thinks they're gone too but yet they still keep releasing stuff, heck Fansproject just released a con exclusive a few months ago or so didn't they and if they're alive than MT are alive

    I assume Maketoys offloaded and bunch of their stock to TFS for a discounted price, hence why there are several Maketoys offerings of TFS at a discounted rate.

    Because like you said, MT is over and "some are in denial about it even with all the signs beyond just their absence at TFCon staring them in the face" You seem to have answered your own question.

    This could suggest that the fat lady is humming a few bars for Maketoys:

    Welp, there you have it.
    Folks who haven't done so already better order their free (+ shipping) upgrade replacement parts kits for Cupola and Ironwill by 11/29/2019 (4 days away).
    Re:Master Series
    Cupola - Replacement Parts
    Ironwill - Replacement Parts

    Fanstoys, XTB, KFC, MMC to name a few.

    Looking like 2024 for those headmasters, boys. And they'll be from FT instead of MT by then. :\

    I totally gave up hope for MT completing their HM/TM line long ago.
    It is up to FT now.

    This means nothing! Their online store didn't make sense anyway, considering the prices were higher or just about the same as retailers and their shipping prices were horrible. Maybe if they reduce their available supply, the demand for their products will go up. I know I took my sweet time buying their Contact Shot........as a matter of fact....I ........I was the one that bought the last one from BBTS. Winning!

    Oh and it's not just up to FT. I dissagree.....STRONGLY!!

    Maketoys advertised upcoming products.

    I have money for products advertised.

    Maketoys doesn't want to make/sell said products.

    What am happening here...
