    Right. I can't tell what point you're trying to make. "TFSource" was meant as a somewhat sarcastic catch all term to refer to all online retail as they are the ones getting the TFCon exclusives. The point remains that MakeToys makes money when any and all those online retailers make their purchases. Whether or not they are sold to the final customer full MSRP or at discount is of little concern to them so long as TFSource and whoever else is buying repaints from them. Which they are.

    Once again, no news for Highbrow at the TFcon Orlando 2023 :-(
    Once again only a recolor of a seeker.
    Maketoys where are you ????

    I have more faith in tfc finishing their Abominus than I do of Maketoys ever releasing those headmasters.

    If they were remotely close, FT would’ve teased a Highbrow render.

    Now, it is only MakeToy.

    They're still busy preparing their promised statement about the Contact Shot KO. We'll get that reaffirmed from a source sometime in 2026 along with confirmation from someone else affiliated with them that great things are in the pipeline.

    I'm sure they'll drag out a handpainted prototype somewhere around the first day of April.

    It’s been over a year since it was announced and eight months since it was supposed to come out. We haven’t seen anything since the original promo picture. I don’t think this thing is ever happening. Best case scenario, we get a Highbrow-themed Starcscream repaint.

    Untrue, but don’t let me stand in the way of the latest FUD cycle about this.

    What part isn't true? They put out the promotional CAD images last January and stores set up preorders with a June release date. Since then we've seen zero physical prototypes or display pieces and the only updates have been a guy who knows a guy who knows Maketoys coming in occasionally to say they heard it was delayed until next month again.

    I want this figure. I have the other MT Headmasters and I desperately want to complete the set. I have an open preorder on it that I'm not going to cancel. I still don't have any real faith that it will ever actually exist. At this point, it seems like Maketoys is either unwilling to or incapable of doing anything other than Starscream repaints.

    “we haven’t seen any thing since the original promo picture” when i literally linked you to a comparison of the original promo picture and the mostly redesigned one. If that’s not “any thing” that could possibly explain the delay, well *shrug*.

    If we’re gonna do the “never coming out” thing again, we can at least be accurate about the history. But i’m not gonna argue about it. like you, i just hope they someday release it (not taking as long FT for some things but i digress lol)
