Ya, probably couldnt get the investment/investors they needed, they did try hard though with all the hype they generated.  It just makes the disappointment even more hard. :(

Wouldn't it be wiser to secure the funds before creating all that hype?
It would suck that a RAH compatible line would die in the egg.

I would suspect they're dead.Haven't heard anything in forever.
Let's face it, it's tough, as we're their ideal target audience, and only a few of us are interested...and even then, only for a low price point.
I just don't think there's a sustainable business there. GI Joe has it's troubles -with waaaaay better brand recognition, a wider audience and better distribution.
Just my 2 cents.

Maybe they just tried to do too much for day 1:
  • Too much different figs
  • Too much big vehicles

They should have started small with few figs for the first year then add a little bit more every year as the cash flow allow it.

don't panic everybody. I don't think that the Monkey is dead.

My Source: http://www.trademarkia.com/corresponden ... c-1-910422

If you look at the date, this was just filed Friday, November 5, 2010. Contained in the article are the names we saw at the con. Almost 3 months ago, sure, but we have to figure that bringing a toyline through the stormy seas of trademarks and intellectual properties is slow going. Surely the state of the economy here in the US hasn't helped, though I understand that things are better to our north in Canuckland. Patience, everyone. Between this and the Thundercats, fans of 3.75 scale will have more than they can handle

I guess we have to wait for after the Toyfair and the JoeCon, before we can continue with the GLOOM AND DOOM of the this line!  :shifty:

I'm hoping things are good for this line, as I already had a few conversion ideas in mind for them.

The gave an interview to the folks of What's on Joe Mind.

The project is still moving forward. Apparently, they're past the sculpting stage and are into the tooling stage.
Still no ETA and they don't have anything they want to show at this stage, thus explaining why the website hasn't evolved from the "Coming Soon" page yet.

• No more cartoon project, but the comic is still a go, so is the graphic novel.
• Classic O-ring construction, no wrist or ankle articulations.
• They still have 10 figures and three vehicles scheduled for the first wave.
