CM's Corp Files for Bankruptcy

Weapon: Gattling Gun
CM's Corp, the company behind the previously released officially licensed Gutto Kuru Minelba and Ginrai figures, has filed for bankruptcy. According to Yahoo! Japan they filed for bankruptcy on March 3rd, citing low sales and an inability to move older merchandise. At the time of the filing they were reporting a debt of over 400 million Yen. How this will effect the pending release of their Excel Suit with Spike and Daniel set remains to be seen.

So no wonder amiami was selling a bunch of their anime related figs at 58% off. A pity that their Satoshi ero will be canned. And their Mugen calibur... :sad:

Takara announcing their own version of the Exosuit, to be sold with MP BB, probably didn't help their prospects.

The curse of Grand Galvatron strikes. Apparently that monstrosity was never meant to gain physical form.

No, that's Art Storm.

That Mugen Calibur I mentioned was the transformable version. Artstorms transformable one is in "chibi" form

Is that the same exosuit design with MP Bumblebee? I wonder if Takara bought the design.

The legs look different and the CM's Corp was probably bigger.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Yes, CM was bigger but the Takara version has a lot of similarities - wheel placement, front of the legs, and torso. Even the boosters behind the cockpit are there

Front wheel is way wrong too, these two are just faithful designs based on the same source material.
