Transformers is pretty unique as there are hundreds of characters throughout the last 30 years, most other series, especially japanese series, seem more contained.
So in short, there just doesn't seem to be the demand in other fandoms for 3rd parties. At least that's my take
Yeah, I think noticed that too when some brought up "non-official" Gundam model kits on someone's youtube channel.
But I'd like the to answer to that as well, if only just to get an update on project that one might interested in as far Transformers are concerned (I keep seeing that Maketoys are working on new items but no updates on the I'm interested that they showed a prototype for last year.)
