    If it didn't sell well it's their fault for having shitty strategy. The way you engage people with combiner teams is to release the body/torso bot first. That way people know you're serious and that the whole design is pretty much done. Plus, customers know that the most expensive one will be the first and it'll be easier on their wallets after that with the limbs. Plus Hun-Grrr is by far the coolest member of the gang. He's a cannibal. That's badass. It's not even close. The other four are dorks. What are their defining characteristics? A mailbox looking fucker that smells bad? A dude who is afraid of organics? Lame AF. Rippersnapper is the only one who even looks semi-cool.

    I wonder since this project is dead in the water, if it’ll raise the price(s) on UT’s. I was never interested in this one in the first place, because of UT’s version.

    Sucks. Feel for ya’ll. Maybe they’ll make awesome standalone’s.

    I'm just surprised no random 3p company is taking up this project by designing their own Hunn-grr to go with the the TFC limbs? I'm sure it's bc of cost/time/other projects but I wonder if there's an unwritten 3P rule to not butt in on other Company projects such as this? It would be an easy ass cash grab and a big FU to TFC "IF" they decide to release their Hun-grr as im assuming most would've jumped on this other Company's Hun-grr over TFC's.

    Also I could be mistaken but wasn't it the CangToys folks who worked on Satan but then left to start up CangToys? If there's 1 Company who I can see pull off a Stylized Hun-grr to go with this set it's them and this is coming from someone who isn't a fan of CT in general lol.

    I don't know the sales numbers for the four limbs, but if they are poor, no sane company would carry the baton and produce a Hunn-grr just to complete the set.

    So... unless this happens, is [TFC / TouchToys / Cang Toys / JiYi / whatever ] the only ones to have not finished a gestalt, specifically while continuing to put out other products?

    I have the 4 limbs too, but if they had done really well, we would have seen Hunn-grr at least a year ago. I am certainly hoping that the Taobao listings will turn out to be true.

    I hope they are true as well. For you guys that want to finish the set and for me.to make it easier to sell these and not have to give them away to have someone buy them. I'll take a loss but not a 40 to 50% loss.

    With the exception of Blot, who is just so so, I don't mind keeping the other three, they are pretty solid and good looking bots with fun transformations to boot.

    I'm gonna be lucky to remember how to transform these guys and get in the box. I remember 2 of them were a pain out of the box because they were party transformed and everyone started from 1 mode or the other. Lol its like why can't reviewers actually start from taking it out of the box.

    Look for Unboxing videos, they are out there. I once had to move and in the process I had to transform these guys and shove them back into the packaging.
