Some Weibo discussion. Their designer left for Newage.
Well, it can be for you right now, just see your collection as complete now, sell off what you value less, redo your display or change mode for all, and then see if there is one piece or two you would still want to add later.
Or wait for the Reset that is coming soon, and it will be taken care for you, along with the rest...
Except the new Reset will be like the old one, just with higher prices
So I guess we can expect a new designer for DX9, then?
I guess it's possible, but the impression I got is they're just quitting after Menasor.
Or he's talking about the great reset, where on their old (now deleted) video, one of their "selling" points was that "In 2030 you will own nothing and you will be happy".
That sounds like more of a threat to me.
Oh I knew what he was talking about. If you think about it more though, we are already in the state of not owning a lot of things. If your phone breaks, you don't own the right to repair it. All your apps live in the "cloud" where they can be taken from you at any time.
But if you REALLY think about it, you never own anything anyways. Things own you. You don't own them. Hence my argument about the new reset being the same as the old one.
I agree with @kibble - you decide when you are done. Just because XYZ is making $500 family-dollar POS's doesn't mean you have to buy it.
I just saw a review of the TFC jet that has no place in TF lore but is actually just the kind of unique thing I'm interested in. Admittedly a bit pricey for now but I think I am going to support something like this more than ACME's 900th version of Optimus, now with clicky-finger. Unique pieces are why I got into 3P in the first place, and sometimes a good deluxe or voyager is every bit as good as an MP. Otherwise NA and MS and Vecma/MTF/MechPlanet wouldn't cranking out so much bite-sized gold. Ok, I'm not a scale junkie but you get my drift.
Not the end of 3P as long as there's someone willing to buy some kind of other option.
Yes everything is over.
It's over. Finished!
Yes, it is the end. You should sell me your figures for cheap.
But it never ends...
I'm probably gonna be done with fanstoys after berserk and chomp. The scalping BS from fans of all people and price hiking that's come from that from retailers is just getting too much.
The only thing that'll kill 3P is a massive political shake down. Trump would've been the idiot to do it and since he didn't, I think 3P is good for a while.
The sun is black the sky is red
And it feels like today is the end
The kids are running as fast as they can
Could it be that today is the end
It will be for me if I ever get a nice MP Computron and Defensor.
3P MP won’t be done until FT makes every G1 figure and version 2s. So we have a good 20 years left.
FT will do Defensor, Bruticus, Computron, Abominus, Devy, and Predaking. Citybots, Skullcruncher, Scourge, and probably Sky Lynx. I have high doubts we get the last two Headmasters from Maketoys right now unless they sell the designs. Does a XTB/KFC deliver on Autobot/Decepticon remaining Targetmasters? I think we only continue to get G1 stuff out of FT, very slowly XTB/KFC, and perhaps Zeta will focus on later combiners. If their Raiden is successful doing Road Caesar, Liokaiser, and Landcross may be successful.
Hastak has survived for years on doing the same thing over, and over. Why would 3p be any different?
Just because you can not longer afford it (interpret this however you wish), it does not men 3P is over.
There's new collectors every day. Deal with it.
