3rd Party stuff was banned by Hasbro UK from Auto Assembly for the past 2 years, it was still sold by dealers.
Adding to that, all this means is that you won't be buying 3rd Party stuff in BotCons's dealer room, where Hasbro reigns supreme.
You'll still get it in stores and on-line stores.
Also both sides in this argument are delusional.
both, Hasbro/Tak and 3rd Party companies rip off other people's ip and designs, they both make awesome stuff and they both make shite.
I'm happy with my mixed collection of 3rd Party, Hasbro and Takara products.

Oh wait, that would require originality, and it's so much easier to rip off an existing character that someone else owns.

Those aren't 3rd Party figures, that is an all new, original line of transforming robots, it's a new IP.
