    I'm not sure I believe that they didn't sell decently. I'm looking at TCP, BBB and ShowZ and all four are sold out, so it couldn't have been too bad.

    Retailers sold out the stock they picked up, but we have no idea how much stock was produced that retailers didn't pick up. I have absolutely no idea how often it happens, or if it applies to TFC's Terrorcons, but I do know of cases where companies ended up sitting on unsold stock (specifically in the case of Shapeshift Inc).

    In the case of Maketoys, the company saddled TFSource with so much leftover stock, TFSource now owns Maketoys, ROFL.

    Maketoys pisses me off. They haven't released their Highbrow yet. Just more seeker repaints out the ass, just more shades of every color under the sun.

    That's sounding familiar... TFC's Rolling Thunder

    At least there is some level of sense behind all the Rolling Thunder redecos (varying degrees of sense, but none of them in the single digits) whereas the MT Seekers have completely jumped the shark.

    What happened with TFC was a shift in direction, but the company is still alive. Until proven otherwise with an actual new mold Maketoys is just dead dead.

    And EXACTLY THAT marks TFC with the Asshole Stamp.
    Like People here say: they give you middle Finger.
    If I would be a Company, and have MUCH Money on my Bank Account,
    I would have...HONOR, and Release the Last Figure
    for all Collectors, that have been Customers for Years.
    But as People here say; "I want to Combine"
    > TFC Response = "Fuck you, the Project Failed,
    Sales were bad, so we cancel that Main Bot"

    As months keep going by with nothing but silence it gets harder to maintain this stance, but I don't believe they have really cancelled. To date I do not believe any 3P combiner from any company has been cancelled incomplete, and TFC themselves have done many.

    Said that before, yes.
    I browsed through Forum, and saw that every Combiner
    was always finished, by every Company.
    Delays, Yes, here and there, 6 Months between, but always
    finished. So it is hard to believe that TFC is the first
    Company, who pulled off that shit to their Loyal Customers.

    I mean... They're a business. Of course they aren't going to lose money over "honor." I might wish that they'd release hungrr but I'm not gonna take it personal. It sucks and I sold my limbs awhile ago because they went silent.

    FYI…

    I know it’s not the news we want, but just letting you know that BBB is taking pre-orders ($5) to gauge interest in a possible re-issue of Unique Toys Ordin (also their Bruticus and Blurr). It might be worth taking a flyer on (especially if you pay the deposit using BBB points) for a shot at getting Ordin way cheaper than going thru eBay.

    For folks who want Hun-Grrr/Abominus this might be our only option unless you want to wait for FT to do them from 2034-2038.

    Guess it depends on how much the total would be. I had Ordin... he was alright... very dated. Not a bad combiner. So was "June" "supposed" relase date for Hunn Gurr for this set? If so thats like what 6 to 8 weeks away? Still no renders or anything.

    UT Ordin is great. It’s one reason why I had zero interest in this set. Not everything needs to be “modernized.”

    He looks great next to TFC Superion, Warbo Bruticus, MMC’s Predaking, etc.

    It really does, and those are the ones I (at least used to) have. This one missing element is the only serious regret I have in selling Ordin. I adored Siegfried.

    linked my post from QQT threads, for the v1. QQT upgrade kit threads

    after almost 2 months, finally finished my QQT Abominus main body kit V1 + 4 TFC limbs.
    Have to say, it looks pretty good once combined, even the main body is too white in my opinion.

    [​IMG]

    Both upgrade kits I bought from QQT.

    Size comparison with Warbotron Computron. The Abominus is beefier and slightly taller.
    [​IMG]

    it's also bigger than TFC Toys HADES (Liokaiser). I think it's just fine, since this is 5 big monsters' combiner.

    Looks amazing, how does it compare in scale to other combiners? 50cms?

    Troll was always my favorite from UT. I never thought I would like a Blot figure that much.

    We have seen literally nothing of TFC Hun-Grrr. The reasonable assumption is that it will be around 16 inches like their Liokaiser and Piranacon, but with the redesign (if it ever releases) it could be anywhere (but probably not shorter). The upgrade xueyue2 posted gets it to around 16 - 17 inches (the Warbotron Computron in one of the pics is 16 inch). I can't remember if the LikeToys upgrade to the 50cm group is for UT or TFC limbs, I want to say it is TFC though.

    I think it will be too short, I can measure and compare tomorrow, my guess right now it's 40 cm.
