But back on topic what I wanna know is that since FB is going to TTC...Will BR's old "Orion" finally have a release? I NEED that toy! an uncut knotted humanoid toy.


Hello there folks,

I'm Scritt (AKA Stripe) of TTC,
It's true, I did use a bad word in a private conversation about a year ago, and possibly also in a discord discussion at some point. To anyone who were hurt, I apologize - and I will do what I can to learn from my mistake.

Looking forward, I'm excited to see what the future will bring, and we will be looking to the toy communities for inspiration and feedback in our coming endeavors. We always welcome constructive criticism, and that will be critical for where we steer our current and future projects.

We wish all the toy makers and -enthusiasts alike an amazing Black Friday this year, and we can't wait to slowly unveil our plans for the acquisition.
Peace,
Scritt

I don't think we were supposed to add references or anything, but I linked a couple cool reptile colors and patterns that could be inspiration, and also said that I liked blues and purples otherwise. I hope that was alright - I think that gives them ample freedom while giving them a good idea of my likes.


Inspiration images are more than okay, they're encouraged! There's a small note on the listing about inspiration images - I like it when people include those, as it gives me ideas I might not otherwise come up with. :smilenox:

I'm going to have fun with this one! :widesmile:


Ooo I forgot you were on the forums haha! Glad you like my inspiration, and I look forward to seeing what comes from it! <3

...'possibly'? Pretty sure you were avidly defending your use of it last night. :eyeroll: You sure didn't seem to listen to constructive criticism until someone put it on a forum.

Evidently! Not sure if the acquisition of FB has changed anything, but it's something TTC has been working themselves towards.

With how thick/big the MINIS are... I get the feeling TTC might Rival BD's XLs (talking about Flint, Crackers, Stan & Xar)

Can't wait to see :smile:

Also hope they get the M.A. set cos I still want a "Darksteel Hurricane" M.A. 2.5 in small

I have such little faith that they're actually going to produce XL toys at the end of the year, which is a shame considering they've been leading it on for almost over a YEAR now.

November 22nd 2016 was the first time they announced wanting to make XL's and other people expressed interests in it.
Image

Then they made a teaser February 16 2017 saying that an XL Cortez was coming soon
https://twintailtoys.tumblr.com/post/15 ... -making-an

And then no updates until people messaged in April of this year asking about them, saying that after the release of their new toy they'll be out soon. And then that changed to before the end of the year, all of them will have XL's. And then in your one screenshot September of this year they said no XL's yet, a mini and a large. I've talked to TTC myself and it seems to me like they have no idea what sizes to make the XL's, which is weird since many people gave their inputs on what type of sizes they would like to see.

I know it's still not the end of the year, but with Black Friday, the Holidays, and the acquisition of FB I have very small doubts of them fulfilling the promise. They've given no updates on the progress of XL's and continue to push what they say later and later. Whenever they teased an XL cortez "soon" I had my wallet ready, only for it to continue to be pushed at a further date and be back logged by other things. I would have rather them not tease them at all considering they first announced interest a YEAR ago and have given no updates. It feels shitty to be strung along with zero updates on what is going on and feel like the promises you were made by the company were quietly shafted.

I'm really excited about this thing that's going on with TTC and FB! :bugeyed: I've heard they're getting the Kaiju models first?? I reallyyyy want a medium Croxic! Fingers crossed.

This makes me so excited to get my Seahorse! Those textures look amazing.

Also, it's worth keeping an eye on Mr Hankey's Toys over the next week if you like their fantasy offerings... Just wait. :wink:

Yeah, that's what's got me worried. I feel like they'll just be acquiring FB's models and old orders will be lost in the fray. I mean, it's great that we can finally order the models again! It would just suck to lose so much money after already paying for them.

To be fair, they aren't the only ones leading us on about bigger toys :stick:

The difference is xenocat has been great about updates and also has taken feedback and posted pics of printed molds. Scritt said today in the discord channel, backing down again that they’ll make an xl cortez and MAYBE a mocha, when he said in that one post “plans for xls in all sizes” and they haven’t made it because they need more “research”.

I know one of the main things people say is to express interest and talk to makers, I’ve talked to scritt publicly and privately about my ideas and preferences as well as others multiple times, so to imply they don’t know what people want and are researching is pretty shitty. He shouldn’t have said anything at all if he never wanted to do it in the first place rather than giving answers and promises all over the place. He also shouldn’t tout the company as being open to everyone and suggestions if the input of myself and many others isn’t enough :/

Also I'm so tempted to get a larger dragons hand in....a solid gold color *SWEATS*

Perhaps an orangey shade of gold? Just a guess ;)



hehe nope, surprisingly ;)
though omg it would make a great hand for semi-corrupted jasper hhhhh
just want it

and
GOLD
(or lemon yellow huehue)

ahahahaha I figured it was a good guess

Regarding the XL's taking longer than originally promised to hit the market, I'm disappointed too, but they're not the first company out there to be overly optimistic on timelines. It's just as well for me, because my wishlist is long enough already...

Frisky Beast just posted their announcement about the TTC purchase:

Hey there folks,
Some of you may have already heard, as of November 1st, Frisky Beast Enterprises has been acquired by Twin Tail Creations. I’m sure you have a lot of questions regarding this change, so first I’ll try to answer a few of the obvious ones to the best of my ability.

To start off, all existing orders will be completed. Having a finish line in sight makes this a bit easier for us to organize and work through, and we are expecting to have the last of the old orders out no later than the first of the year. If this expected time-frame changes, you will be notified. The original Frisky Beast website will be in a limited color mode while certain models make their exit to the TTC shop, starting with the Kaiju Island lineup. A new Frisky Beast storefront under TTC ownership will be made, where certain FB original items will remain until further notice.

Next, you may be curious as to what lead to this decision. Honestly, I’m not at all fond of discussing personal matters on a public platform such as this, but I will do my best to summarize. I apologize for the confusion my silence may have caused during this time.

Early in 2017, a health issue that I put on the backburner for years pushed itself to the forefront of my daily life. I worked through it and made adjustments where possible to accommodate. The good days allowed us to make progress and catch up, but the bad put us behind again. The longer the issue went on, the worse it became, and after several months the really bad days outnumbered the good ones. Production (along with my mental health) suffered as a result, and soon ‘manageable backlog’ became overwhelming.

At the advice of my doctor, my partner and my staff, we made the decision to begin stepping back, and start looking for someone to take over the company. We screened a number of potential candidates, trying to find someone who had the experience, the work space, and the drive to conquer this enormous task. We also wanted to find someone who we were confident would correct issues we never managed to overcome.

The interviews lasted til early fall, and after careful consideration, we decided to offer the company to Twin Tail Creations. They have proven their ability to produce and deliver a quality product in a reasonable amount of time, and we feel comfortable leaving our creations in their hands. Frisky Beast Enterprises is extremely grateful to them for stepping up to this task, and by extension, granting me the much needed time to focus on my health for awhile. I will still be around behind the scenes on staff, but I will be no longer holding the reins.

I want to say how much I appreciate the patronage and patience you’ve given me over the past four years. I am truly sorry for the order issues and long wait times that prolonging this choice has caused, and the effects it has had on you all as customers and community members. I sincerely believe you all will be happier with the coming changes, and I hope that those turned away from our products by the actions of the past will now be able to get the toys they’ve always wanted.

Thanks for everything,
Theropod

I'm a bit relieved that they're going to complete the existing orders and not just toss them to the wind, but I also wonder... will they be receiving help? Because if the issues that caused them to sell in the first place are that bad, I can't imagine trying to complete all existing backlog orders before January 1st would be very manageable.
