    Long story-short... they set up a crowdfund for a line of MP scaled Cybertronian seekers, took quite a bit of money from punters, then completely mismanaged everything, lost all the money, and sunk the company.

    I've had it in storage for awhile, but I don't remember having any problems with the plastic quality or anything.

    Wow. And from what @Starganderfish has stated in the the Make Toys Masterpiece Coneheads (Dirge, Ramjet, Thrust) thread there is no buyer protection from credit card companies, Paypal etc if you lose your money paying into a crowdfund.

    I have it too. It does the job, but doesn’t look as nice as the Maas one though.

    Nope. I was lucky compared to some. I only pre-ordered their Starscream... but more than a few went in on all 6.

    The MAAS throne is certainly toon accurate. I wonder how snug and securely MP-36 or any of the 3rd party MP Megs can sit snug and securely in it without tilting over a bit.
    I'm sure someone can pick up the ball that MAAS dropped and develop the same style throne.

    So I created this Megatron throne based off of the episode 1 cartoon. I still need to do a lot of panel lining work and other details but it a start. Any opinions? megatron throne_a.jpg megatron throne_b.jpg megatron throne_c.jpg megatron throne_d.jpg

    Well, MP-36 doesn't sit in the TFSource chair. He just kinda leans against it. It works well from the front, but if you look at it from the side you can tell. I think the Maas one would have worked better from both angles.

    This is interesting. I hadn't even noticed the actual G1 throne base that you showed in the cartoon reference. Nice work! Have you developed this any further?
