    True that. And these days even among 3P products that take extended time sometimes there are significant QC problems. :\

    Excellent. I’ll be trying for sure.
    That sounds like the best job ever.
    Just like Takara’s plus figures. I thought the same would apply.

    A number of possible reasons. Suffice to say that making toys is similar to game development in some ways: it's a lot of spinning plates of changing circumstances and ideas, only having x amount of people to work on stuff, unexpected problems, constant troubleshooting, money, etc etc. It's also just really, really hard. :lol 

    EDIT: I've read your other posts after this one. Concerning releases, here's the thing: Shit happens. Every third party company is plagued by this.

    What are you talking about, we got zinnia in Toronto this year. Only the chosen prime had no new exclusives (they did have stock of the mt starscream g2 and blue mt Optimus though), but mmc and age 3 up had some new exclusives. Only zinnia was a good repaint though this year... so good that I was in Toronto, hehe
