    What happened with Zeta? Is that a figure or the company Zeta Toys?

    *Alucard voice* I'm interested in this.

    Devil's advocate, it's probably a lot easier to copy and reverse engineer toys that require user assembly (their model kits). The whole blueprint is literally there out in the open.

    They can rage as much as they want. Just like you can complain about their rage as much as you want. :lol

    I’m not 100% sold on Robot Mode, but Dino Mode is perfect, especially since it looks so much like IDW Grimsy.

    So, I am so ready to see this get released.

    And, I don’t really need a BW Megatron, but obviously I can go for a fine looking Grimlock. :D

    all I said is they are the ones that sue/raid the most.... never said anything about being easier to copy and whatnot.

    True, but in most cases the people copying Bandai are actual bootleggers who rip the stuff off wholesale.

    The majority of 3Ps (unless they're straight-up KO manufacturers) at least do original molds.

    Oh, if only it came in more sizes than Legends... eh, I\'ve been needing a Legends scale Grimlock so this might make its way into my collection soon.

    I entered this guy in the custom contest back at Botcon 2008. I think I'll have to buy the TW version.

    Toyworld, the company that releases plans for repaints before the original figure is released. Whats the last non repaint they have actually completed and available to buy? They have announced about 200 figures this year and not much to show for it.

    It must be a good idea, 'cause I thought of something pretty much the same 16 years ago.
