'Scum just briefly posted a story but then pulled the entire supporting detail portion of it (or just messed it up) that MR has now backed out of C4, at least with respect to their booth and exclusives (Wedge helmet). They said they'd still throw the MR party on Sunday (probably 'cause there were too many "celebrities" signed up for it already), but that their exclusives would only be available online later on at some point.
They also put up a short list of a handful of MR items that would still be made this year, but it was only about 6 items. No more .45 collectibles (helmets or guns) it looks like. Looks like the dissolution of the partnership was far from amicable, and there's some serious bad blood between the two. Pretty sad...
Yeah, I'm sure Sideshow (or even GG) would love to nab the prop license. The obvious question would be whether they could handle it, and if not, how long it would take them to get up to speed with where MR left off. Of course, that'd mean they'd probably start many of the sublines over from scratch. That'd certainly be interesting to see how well they'd possibly fare, and what the former MR collectors would think.
