Third Party
Impossible Toys Last Project Announced - Closing After End of Year
Scaleface - 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...........

I think it was the poor quality of some of their most anticipated figures that killed fans interest in their figures. I know a lot of people that bought their Arcee version felt burned due to the quality and price. I think they had the desire, but they just couldn't release the quality it takes ... read more

UPDATE: Impossible Toys added this: [url= (link) Seems they have Legends size Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, a Yellow Cliffjumper, Bumper, Glyph, Goldbug, Tap-Out and Wasp in the works. There is also someone who looks like Bumblebee but colored like Rosanna???

From a marketing point, third party retailers aren't trying to get rich fast. It takes research and development to get these products out. Most of them get an A+ for effort. Some of the companies were doing good and then they all seemed to slow down. Here's the only third party toys I have. ... read more

Impossible Toys always seemed to be on the fringe anyway. I like the Alicon and have it on pre-order, but those Tertrajets looked bad. I don't know if they changed the heads on them, but I'm not interested enough to buy them. I wonder how long it'll be before collectors have had enoug... read more

It looks like the unofficial Optimal Optimus will have an opponent in the near future. On Facebook, Perfect Effect has released the first tease for a new entry in their Perfect Beast series, a silhouette-style CG render of what is unmistakably Transmetal 2 Megatron. Even in this state it's clear the design has been passed through the Perfect Effect stylizing filter, which may or may not work for some collectors. And don't be surprised to see at least an additional blue version be announced before too long, too... Keep reading to see the full size image.
Now up for preorder at BBTS, Estimated to arrive November 2017. The PC-20 Perfect Combiner Upgrade is a repaint of the previously released PC-16 and is designed to work with the Comicon Exclusive Primitive Optimus Prime. This set includes a transforming figure, a breastplate, laser gun, neck kit, combine helmet and two interchangeable hands.
If you felt that this year's exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime from San Diego Comic Con bore a bit of resemblance to the old exclusive Nucleon Quest Super Convoy redeco of Powermaster Optimus/Super Ginrai from the early 2000s, you weren't alone. Perfect Effect has announced a black redeco of their Jinrai Prime coordinated with the SDCC Optimus. PC-20 Black Jinrai is due out around November, and features a new super mode head unique to this release which, along with the chest plate addon, are decoed to blend in with the SDCC Optimus. Check out the promo images, mirrored below!
Holy translucent purple plasitc fix, all the latest announcement from Xtransbots! The MX-III Eligos Figure stands 11 inches (28cm) in robot mode and transforms into a space jet. Eligos comes armed with two laser guns and sword and is accompanied by a mini warrior and a pilot. Read on to see the images and more details on this MP scale figure after the jump.
Twitter user @TcrackerGenmon has posted some in-hand images of Perfect Effect's PC-16 Jinrai Prime upgrade figure, and it looks really good in full color! The figure replaces the cab on either Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime or Legends LG-35 Super Ginrai, and also adds true Powermaster compatibility (for use with the PC-15 upgrade set which includes a Powermaster/Godmaster Ginrai). Keep reading to see the photos!
