The "Flamethrower Shock Troops" is already listed as archived, so looks like we've got another Zombies Nuketown situation. Frankly, it's been fun, but I am not holding out hope for the future. Mattel is hemorrhaging money, distribution has been spotty, their biggest competitor is looking to buy them out, and releases across the Mega Construx brand have been paltry this year. That doesn't include the outside factors of Toys R Us going bankrupt and the entire toy industry seeing a slump.
It really is a shame, because the last two years of products have included some of the best building block toys I've ever seen. Mega Bloks went from a joke to a level of quality, detail, and value that far surpasses the competition.
