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...........

Some more experimental builds from BMOG Toys using test shots of the figures. Plus the Kickstarter has announced they are giving a bonus set of stickers to anyone who donated over $5 to the project, that will allow them to create an original character using one of the existing bear/manta sets from retail. We also have some art of the combined form of Ursenal and the upcoming light green bear Bearium!
DMY Studios has gone in an unexpected direction and put together an upgrade set for the Deluxe size Classics Optimus Prime, well known from the Ultimate Battle and subsequent relabeled two-packs with the green tank Megatron. Seen here in test shot form with non-final colors is a standard Optimus rifle, energon axe attachment, Matrix and more! Keep reading for the images and more details.
The new Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalts consists of weapon-based parts that can be combined into animals, robots and just about anything else you'd like! They can fit with multiple toy lines, and the first two sets (each of which contains the parts to create both a bear and a manta ray, as well as a sticker sheet) ar priced at $24.99. You can order Ursenal Vs. Mant-Axe, Bearium Vs. Gamma-Ray at bigbadtoystore.com. Read on to see the images for more details.
Thanks to Ekin over at 78DM who has posted images from Shanghai Gan Eden Cafe KFC meeting. KFC attended a meetup at the Gan Eden Cafe recently. Here are the photos of the show. They had Citizen Stack and other products. Read on to see the images from the event and the translated report.
