    I don't know whether to laugh or cry. What I do know is that I loathe April Fool's Day. None of these "pranks" or "jokes" are ever all that amusing, and some are downright stupid.

    MMC at least always shows a new render about something that they are working on with a scheme that homages something else in a fun way... Or it could be turned into reality if people actually like the thing (it has happened before with Asterisk Tarn).

    I mean, if anything it shows they have a sense of humor. It's them that should be the most pissy about the crowdfunding not reaching the goal after using up time and resources for it after all.

    Yeah this seems like a bit of a kick in the teeth for supporters really.

    We already know Helex is getting made, so there's no hidden message here.

    I think it's supposed to be a self-effacing joke about how they love doing remolds and therefore rarely do characters which are difficult to remold (Like Helex, whose mold obviously doesn't suit Fort Max at all), but after how invested we were in this campaign, it comes across as quite tone-deaf.

    A little too cruel, but maybe that means there is some good news to come.

    Probably the death of the automotive industry?

    ------------------------------------

    I usually enjoy the MMC AFD teases because I actually want the figure they make up (I'm still waiting for the Guzzle -> Omega Spreem deco to become a reality). This one isn't as good because the effort seems more half-hearted - I imagine MMC is doing something w/Supermax and we'll get news sooner or later, but this isn't a great teaser to keep me wanting more

    Damn at least wait a couple months before you start telling jokes,a lot of people were excited and hoped for this to happen and probably could have been one of if not the best mmc figure to date but instead of producing this no brainer they made a crappy crowd fund for it,oh and by the way was that star convoy a crowdfund too?

    I think the fact that they're joking about it could actually be a good sign, not that it would bother me if they just have a dark sense of humor, lol.
