That's all the confirmation I need. RIP MakeToys.
Hopefully somebody over there has enough brains to sell their designs for Brainstorm and Highbrow to another company.
Selfishly I'm still hoping the rest of the Guardia set I have on pre-order will show up. Right now it's just Vulcan that TFSource has in stock.
This is old news. MT posted on Facebook back in Nov. that they were closing their store down but reorganizing to continue making figures. Just go back a few pages in this thread.
Right, but their website was more than a store, IIRC.
they did call their dirge....endgame . hmmm. i hope they stick around. their take on things is a bit different than others even when doing "MP" stuff. variety is the spice of life and MT made things i simultaneously love and hate ...2 emotions for the price of one. haha
Not many of the 3rd parties have websites any more. No need to with places like Weibo, TFW, social media, etc.
When was the last time we heard from them via those?
le sigh.. Guess I'll never get their Skywarp now without paying some insane eBay markup price.
And what was said?
Awww man... Their style often wasn't to my liking, but they had their own thing.
The final nail in the coffin. RIP MakeToys.
It's now up to other 3Ps to carry on the 3P MP scale Headmasters and Targetmasters.
What are your thoughts now??
So now does this mean the preorder will be fulfilled or refunded?
Literally from the previous page:
He answered it on this page 3 posts before the first one you replied to.
Oh so the last message from them was about closing the site down. Oof, that’s bad news. They are dead. RIP
such a shame !!
would be good if another company could get hold of their 2 mp headmaster designs
That's nostalgia speaking. In reality, they probably wouldn't be very good. The first two had their issues and are a bit dated in design and articulation. I bet FT can do a lot better even though it'll be quite a wait.
I hope they don't go under, I love thier City Bot line, the aesthetic is really cool. I regret not getting thier Utopia (Metroplex) when it was available, and I have my fingers crossed hoping to see a Trypticon from them.
they are not the best but contact shot is so had hopes for the next 2 being more like that figure
