    I didn't say you invented it. That's wayling the batoon. But that guy in 55 invented it and since I never heard it before its newfangled. What the hell's puckip with saying: linked together?

    Right. Kinda peculiar that their website is suddenly back up on April 1st. Meanwhile orders still can't be placed on it and the most recent post on the announcements section is still from 3 years ago.

    Except you literally said "All it does is advertise products already existing" which is demonstrably untrue and thus does indeed make your statement inaccurate.

    Anyway... moving along, I hope they do continue and finish some figures they've been working on.

    I guess we'll see what happens.

    Wow. It's been discussed multiple times that they posted on facebook last november that they were closing their website storefront (no more sales), and that any replacement parts would have to be acquired through vendor you bought from in future...

    We all know the news is a tough pill to swallow for you. D-Nile isn't just a river in Egypt apparently.

    April 1st was canceled. A fool by definition can't keep six feet away.

    Yep. Yet folks are jumping from thread to thread swearing by it as gospel. Next they'll say FT just teased their Ultra Magnus today.

    That craziness you wrote in that private message, does it mean that you got me on ignore now or does it mean that you are flying the donkey?

    I usally appreciate your helpful posts here on the forum and have always respected your contributions. That said, you're being less than pleasant here in all honesty. Not sure why you're so committed to knowing they're dead- to the point of shouting down those of us who provide a modicum of actual information? You don't seem to have any information to prove what you're asserting all the while ignoring information presented that is contrary to your assertion. If you have real info, please share it. Otherwise you're purely conjecturing and generally being rude toward other board members here IMHO.

    And if the website turns out to be fake, it's fake. But we certainly don't know it is as of yet. It's what we have to go on right now is all.

    EDIT: BTW, if it turns out that it IS truly an April fools thing, Ill be the first to admit "yup, they got me!" and that you were indeed right, lol.

    Hey, it is what it is. Not sure why you're committed to challenging everyone whose posts differ from yours like Linus jumping on the Peanuts gang telling them that the Great Pumpkin still really exists as they leave the pumpkin patch. Believe whatever you'd like and let others do the same. It ain't the end of the world. Life goes on.

    Believe me, I too would love for Maketoys to be around and complete all their projects but at the same time I've seen the writing on the wall.

    Well, the main difference in my mind was that I felt I have been presenting some kind of information (whether it turns out to be real or not) that supported my point while you don't appear to be beyond an opinion (which may be correct I will give you) at least not that I've seen. I'd like to know what's going on too even if it's not what I'd hope for but so far nobody who says "they're dead" has any actual information supporting that claim that I've seen. Just assumptions it seems. That's just frustrating is all I guess.

    Again, I truly respect all of the positive stuff you do and contribute here on the forum. You help others out quite often and are a valuable forum member in my opinion. Maybe I simply took some of the not knowing frustration out on you and I offer my apologies for that.

    If MakeToys still want to release the coneheads, they better do it before TT announces their seeker 3.0.

    Apology accepted. As I've mentioned before, believe what works for you while others do the same for themselves.
