Ooo articulated fingers are back
I'm not sure how toy design works exactly, but I get some sort of royalties for the Yambiner concept right?
Did I miss drama? Awww.
Also, bad forum, naughty forum, don't drive away posters. I need them around to constantly harass them for updates.
I have to remember not to go in on a set before they're all released. I'm twitching like a crackhead here.
I'm currently working on Macramémaster.
second trailer ? no only One trailer about 36cm length . mp10 trailer Are 30cm.
How big is the box for Motormaster going to be?
Will the two remaining Stunticon cars be shipping soon? The wait has been particularly long on these, especially waiting for the G2 version to be produced in between each, but really looking forward to receiving them.
Can you speak to the production delays? We're curious what might have caused the several months of extra production time on the Stunticons that were originally slated to arrive last December. It would help to have some insight into what causes such delays for a company that allegedly has its own factory (or two). Is it availability of factory time? Is it waiting to accrue the funds to pay for the production? Something else?
There have been slowdowns with other 3P companies in the past year, so is it something larger that affects everyone or are there different bottlenecks for each company that all just happened to occur in the same timeframe?
Keep it chill. No attacks to ibot. Let him discuss. Gonna keep this in check.
Responded. I'll keep an eye. Ask reasonable questions, but don't slap labels on the messenger. We are lucky he keeps us posted at all.
That's good news. I was worried all the yam stuff was only a pipe dream.
So the plan has changed then?
If so, that's wonderful news! I really didn't like the idea of a second trailer driving the price up. On that subject, any idea when we'll be hearing what the price for Gravestone and/or the Monolith torso will be? We'll be buying part 3 of this 5 bot set soon and some of us would like to know, before we're in too deep, how much it's going to cost to finish the set.
Asking for clarification is great! Go ahead and do that
Starting out by accusing @ibot of lying is not the way to do it.
Things change over the course of production for any product, 3P transformers are no exception. Those of us who purchased Phoenix X have had a recent reminder of that. It's great to wonder what happened and try to get those answers. Being accusatory right off the bat will only result in us not getting those answers.
Basically, ask the question in the same way you'd want to have the question asked to you.
Yes, but the correct way is to inquire into this discrepancy as we don’t know why ibot is giving a different answer now, seemingly ignoring the previously stated trailer info. And none of the posts are inaccurate perse, there is just information missing the give the complete picture (whether that be change of plans, seperate trailer or heck even this just being an employee posting on Keith’s behalf here, not knowing of Keith’s previously stated info).
A better question may be
@ibot Knowing that motormaster comes with 1 trailer, is the gestalt body included in that trailer or will it be a separate purchase?
A bit disappointed that he seems to have gone offline again before answering the important questions like the remaining figures' ETAs and the number of trailers that have been asked for weeks and were re-asked within a couple minutes of his active posts. We've been hoping for clarity on these items for months now. He comes in and reads some of the thread, responds to nonsense about yams, but doesn't offer anything we really wanted to know.
Welcome back. Please stay and don't let trolls chase you off.
Don't panic. Not everybody has time to sit around reading this site all day ....like me . He probably just did a quick drive by and then had other things to do. I'm sure we'll be hearing more from him soon. That's usually his pattern - show up for a few days and then gone for a while until he's got something else to say. I seriously doubt he decided to drop by for a few minutes and then leave for months again.
I think it's safe to say that nobody has been more worked up over the "two trailer" and "how much will it all cost" issues than I have. If he says there's only one trailer, that's a relief. I'd still like some answers on price but let's be honest - that announcement isn't going to happen in a thread on some fansite - we'll be seeing it on retailer sites when the pre-orders go live. What I hope we hear from @ibot is some information on when the remaining bots can be expected and/or when we might expect to see pre-orders with final pricing go up.
Too slow, I've already registered it at the patent office...
Personally I'm thankful for the new glimpse of Gravestone's face, the tidbit of info about the remaining cars, and the 'not too long' reference to more pics of Gravestone.
Way better than no info at all.
