Impossible Toys Last Project Announced - Closing After End of Year

By Scaleface on Sunday, July 07, 2013



it is with great regret to let everyone know Impossible Toys will be closing its doors and no longer be producing toys at the end of 2013. We feel its important we explain so here it is......This is due to weak pre-orders sales on the Tetra Squadron, We anticipated higher but it appears we no longer have the support from the fandom we used to. We are not sure if this is due to so many new 3rd party companies in the market or if fans are just not interested in non mainstreamed G1 style characters and products anymore, Well from us anyway......

Dear fans,

it is with great regret to let everyone know Impossible Toys will be closing its doors and no longer be producing toys at the end of 2013. We feel its important we explain so here it is......This is due to weak pre-orders sales on the Tetra Squadron, We anticipated higher but it appears we no longer have the support from the fandom we used to. We are not sure if this is due to so many new 3rd party companies in the market or if fans are just not interested in non mainstreamed G1 style characters and products anymore, Well from us anyway......

The last 3 toys released prior to the Tetra Squadron and Alicon we did not recover from, (Alpha Tryon, Kranax, Arblilas) only about 250pcs of each made it to market. So low sales numbers and high expenses don't usually allow a company to continue. We have made every effort possible to improve every time and the Alicon and Tetra Squadron are our most superior product we have produced to date but we cant sell enough numbers to allow to keep making new products.

We have read many forums and respect your thoughts good and bad. So with that said the first 7 Tetra Squadron toys are being released but only a small number of around 1000pcs each world wide, and a 2nd small run of Alicons that are almost completed to fill the current preorders and give those that missed out one final chance, if we can budget the last planned 4 Tetra Squadron toys (Acid-Stomer and 3 Rain-Makars) we will do those in the around same small 500-1000 pcs numbers too, but those are pending for now, So please expect these to not happen unless something major changes,

We have another project that has already been in the works with the Tetra Squadron and already finished but we did not announce, I know you hate teasers but one is posted on the left if you did not notice. This will be the final release from us and details will be released in the next few weeks, Again these will be released in extremely small numbers, So to our long time supporters please act fast to avoid paying crazy aftermarket prices like the Quint-01 and TRNS-01,

All older products have been sold off and discontinued for some time now so any stock on older products you might find at online retail is the last of it, please do not expect restocks, if there is anything your still looking for your best bet is to look at one of our online retailers if they still have stock or maybe Ebay,

Being the first 3rd party group to make a 100% new factory production toys we have made many friends over the years and always tried our best to improve but times change. We started this as fans to make toys we wanted and could never have as kids, then thought it would be nice to share them with our fellow fans but it seems G1 fans are not as interested as they used to be, Well in us anyway.

We thank all those fans and customers that have supported us over the years before this 3rd party thing became so crazy. The Tetra Squadron toys will arrive to all our online retailers in the next couple weeks to fill the preorders, So we hope you enjoy your final Impossible Toys products, its been a great time.

Till all are...........

Thanks to TFSource for sharing with us that Fansproject confirmed to them that Sigma-L, the long-awaited fourth figure in the popular Function-X line will ship next week. TFSource expects to have these in hand and ready to fill preorders late next week or early the week after. With nearly a year between Smartrobin, the previous Function release and the impending release of Sigma-L, we very much hope that Not-Skullcruncher, the last of the initial five designs revealed in summer 2012 will follow rather more quickly - and clear the way for the next batch teased at this past TFCon!
Site sponsor TFSource has posted new images from Mastermind Creations showing Zinnia, the recolor of their Cybertronian-style Arcee homage figure based on the Paradron Medic from the G1 cartoon. The figure has been designated R-08Z, and is currently expected to ship in November. Keep reading to check out the mirrored promo shots showing the super articulated Reformatted Series figure!
Fansproject Core has sent out another update letting existing registered website users know about the upcoming premium membership plan and preorders for the Core Trailer unit, a long awaited add on to Steel Core. They explain in this message that the Core Trailer will include the Soleron Ruthen Red Core figure, which was seen previously attached to Steel Core in the previous announcement message. Keep reading for full details!
Not only has Chinese company Wei Jiang made oversized (Alternators/Masterpiece size) versions of Toyworld's Grindrod, Aurora and Trace, they have started to promote the series with a toy commercial and product demonstration for the children in China! Take a look!
Today we have renders of a pair of their upcoming combiners cassettes. You might want to compare them to the G1 characters Dial and Saur. The brontosaurus will probably be recolored as not-Sludge and Fullstop. The other one will be recolored into Shift. Shift and Fullstop will form the combiner called Reelthing. Fullstop and Shift are potentially part of the upcoming Dinominions set, a team of fan-made dinosaur support cassettes for the Dinobots. Included in the pictures are the G1 Dail and Saur toys, and concept images of Fullstop and Shift.
