    Whatever happened to “I’ll just wait for the KO?”

    Guess they’ll keep waiting.

    You know there is a super obvious way to make money with DA-01 which is to produce it in colours Takara didn't that match the rest of the line dark/medium blue and Yellow seem like obvious choices.

    I wonder if they'd ever considered doing the black one... though that would need a few new pieces. I think the Mammoth vehicle is an obvious choice for a Police Swat repaint too.

    I'd love to see them do some other things in grey too that Takara didn't do in grey. I think they should risk reproducing some Small Waruda & the figures too... after all they need to make the figures for this guy after all.

    I think they can make a ton of money if they could make the other size of raid containers available too since they never reallly sold those as stand alones and made more figures than they did containers.

    Mechanic Studios has now claimed that MFT is no longer active as well. Considering MFT has announced a reprint recently, this may mean that MFT is sticking to non-transformer designs. Until we get a product from MFT in hand again, we can't say for sure but there are now two companies closely related to MFT claiming they have shut down.

    I hope this isn't the case, I am still looking forward to their Sunstreaker and their Elita 1.

    I think you’ll probably still see that Sunstreaker eventually, just under a different banner.

    yeah same shit different day. what i do care about is if and when vecma starts back up. i desperately need the rest of the remaining UT headmaster's and of course that cerebros.

    hopefully whoever is paying the bills can get their shit back together. MFT works best when they are producing like gang busters.

    but if not it looks like i will have to hang my dreams on the A17 project.

    MFT definitely will be missed. I wonder if they changed strategies and upscaled legends to chug scale if it would have helped. Some of those would have worked pretty well. MFT was also good at making small improvements at a pretty reasonable price.

    honestly hoping someone in the mft family has a go at mini-cons, considering armada is on the rise.

    I was thinking more along the lines of Newage or Magic Square just tackling the whole of the Uncron Trilogy. That whole era really had some great designs. Modern for the time but still familiar and close enough to G1 that they even had some G1 bots in the background for Armada and didn't look out-of-place in the slightest. I remember someone referring to it somewhere as the true G2 that we deserved. That seems pretty apt to me.

    Besides FansHobby, I think you’d be more likely to see Iron Factory adapt Armada characters and the Unicron Trilogy in general.

    Give it time. The G1 well will eventually run dry. Although you also have that 3P Cybertron Prime coming out any day now. Maketoys released a Cybertron Starscream about 4 or 5 years ago and that was clearly testing the waters, to less than stellar results, but 2,000's nostalgia is beginning to hit now so maybe this time around there'll be a more enthusiastic response. Fingers crossed.

    If they are shutting down it explains why a vendor I got a figure from cannot get replacement parts. I got two right legs in a Vecma Studio Space set and have been dealing with ohmyprimus for a while now to get a replacement leg.

    Yeah it's a bummer b/c these guys were my go-to on a budget. I mean, I really like the stuff that newage puts out, but I really can't afford it half the time. MFT/Mech Studio was my best alternative. What a drag :(  .

    We may have a better idea what is going one once trade shows start up again.

    Hard to say a lot of the KO makers are keeping their head down and things are far from back to normal in China, so it may be a long time yet. and that is even assuming the MBT family is feeling brave enough to stick it's head out and risk getting it chopped off metaphorically speaking.

    There may be shows but, the usual suspect Factories might want to stay away for the time being. Ask in the KO thread someone in there might know though.

    Hopefully all they will do is sell under another brand rather than shut up shop entirely on KOs
