    Nah, most of the frustration comes from their inability to produce new stuff. FansToys, MMC are pretty much running normally. And many other companies like DX9, Cang Toys, Iron Factory, etc have managed to push out one or two new stuff. But so far, ibot is only doing repaints, remoulds, etc.

    ibot is objectively the most incompetent of the bunch.

    We don't know how much of this is personal incompetency and how much of it is other factors beyond his control.

    What they can do is communicate with the fans better. Don't promise us photos if you're not going to deliver them when you said you would.

    That's it. I got a jumbo machinder mazinger. I'm just going to tape the stunticons onto the arms and call it Menasaur.

    Yeah, that's true - but on the other hand, fans go crazy no matter what. Just look at this thread! We're all going crazy!

    Next time they shouldn't announce a new figure until it's already been delivered to my door.

    That's fair but I'm sure there's a middle ground between "We're going to do this thing in this particular month," and then missing it every. freaking. time. they. do. that! and complete radio silence. Something along the lines of, "We're going to do this soon. Shooting for this month but by the end of next month for sure." Or even a bit of damage control: "Hey guys, I know we said we'd be doing the thing this month but it didn't quite work out so you won't be seeing it until next month. Sorry about that."

    Yeah i agree. I remember a couple months backs when the guy that does their box arts posted on FB "XTB Trailer coming very soon" i was so hyped at that time. Now we just need to be understanding of them just like what they said.

    I wonder how bad those pictures must've turned out if they've decided not to show them and instead ask for more time :confused:

    At this point, the photos are taking longer than the trailer!!!

    They will end up like McD photos. You look at them and you think YUM!!!, then you get the actual burger .....

    I know everyone is very sick of waiting for the Sunbow deco trailer.
    But ever since the "T" Youth/Toy decos were revealed, this is what I've been waiting for.
    And we still haven't even seen Flipout or Gravestone yet, let alone a trailer.

    So, yeah, we're all waiting. :tumbleweed:

    I love these stunticons, I went a little sideways cause I love the g2 colors of deathwish/deadend. So I have all g1 figures except that fella.

    And man do I want that trailer to be released sometime this century...

    I mean I think it’s rather suspicious. They can post images from Toy Fair and other shots through glass with glares and all that, we are supposed to believe that they are doing a professional shoot to give us a taste of the trailer? That’s a load.

    I’m guessing it’s not even in production but whatever, by the time it comes out it will fit in with my masterpiece collection about as good as feral rex, make toys giant or Shuraking. They make nice standalone stunticons though.

    I bet this trailer will sell out of preorders too. With everything going on with fans toys selling out, some folks will probably order like 5 or 6 of this thing. Not gonna get my hopes up of even snagging this thing once it goes up.

    So I assume xtb said they would have a trailer reveal on the 30th?

    Boy I hope so, I'm tired of my combiner wars menasor. Even with the upgrade kit, it's pretty much garbage. I now keep them all separate and display each in bot mode.

    The sad truth is, they don't have to care or respect their fans, or update anyone about anything......because we, the fans, will buy what they put out, when they put it out. There are very few people/fans that will be "what, the trailer/figure/whatever was not released on the date they stated it was going to be! I'm not buying this now".

    They know anyone who has interest in the trailer has already boughy Motormaster, so they are probably in for a trailer, and will buy it whenever it is released. As well, the person who bought their Motormaster HAS TO buy their trailer if that want to complete the figure/Menasor, so it is not like of they don't release it soon, the fan will buy someone else's trailer for Gravestone. XTB doesn't have to do anything......not communicate, not get a product our, not respect fans enough to dribble out an update now and then......because they know they already have the sales/your/our money.

    Combiner wars menasor looks pretty ugly IMO. Which is why i purchased Fansproject, TFM and then XTB.

    I strongly considered DX9's version of menasor but the strangely long trailer was the deal breaker.

    PS i stated 2 days because here in Australia it is the 29th today. The Yanks are a day behind us
