Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:09 AM)

I thought Hasbro made Micro Machines

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 October 2019 - 10:40 AM)

Jazzwares bought Wicked Cool Toys. So I guess Jazzwares is going to be making Micro Machines :p

No matter what side of this debacle you may be on, I think we can all agree that this case demonstrates that reality is not like Phoenix Wright in that it's generally a bad idea to get your inexperienced buddy to defend you in court.

Funimation is cleared on TI AND conspiracy.

That leaves the judge 30 days to rule on Rial for conspiracy and Rial, Toye and Funi for defamation.

We probably won't see Ty Beard wearing his "Dammit Nick we lost the case again" shirt on Nick Rekieta's livestreams again.

 

13 out of 17 allegations dismissed in one morning.

For all those Vic will have to pay the defendant's attorney fees, plus whatever sanctions the judge finds appropriate.

I doubt he'll be able to dip in the GoFundMe financing after Ty Beard is done fleecing it, either.

I really don't know who's thread to link here.  Think we'll go with Mike Dunford's as it's nicely organized.

 

https://twitter.com/...029419303452673

 

I'll be honest, I don't think Vic's gonna win on Defamation here.  Beard has done a wonderful job of just not being able to properly represent Vic on this matter.

 

Ironbite-meanwhile the Vic Stans are trying to spin this as a win because defamation wasn't dismissed.

She's got every right to be that smug too.  Beard just had no idea what he was getting into here.

For the sake of multiple sources/points of view, another lawyer who was in attendance is posting his recap based on his notes (he didn't livetweet).

Sadly it's a bit unthreaded so you'll have to go from the bottom up.

 

https://twitter.com/...me/with_replies

 

 

I think this one is important to single out, because the number of claims remaining to be judged on is unclear according to participants.

Sweet mercy....I'm a Legal layman and I'm physically WINCING at these paraphrased exchanges.

 

I'm dead serious right now, I don't care what kind of garbage fire Human Being a person is...when this is done, Vic really should take Ty to court for damages. Because if this isn't deliberately crashing another person proverbially into a wall for a giggle I don't know what is.

In another exchange, a slightly exasperated Chupp said, “Am I not being clear?” Beard responded, “No, your honor, it’s that I’m not listening“ -- to which the judge said, “It would help if you would.”

That's the article's writer. She'd written previously on the case as well.

 

I do not understand why @TyBeard10 refuses to talk to me. -- I offered him multiple chances before writing both pieces. Not being willing to present @vicmignogna side to the only local reporter covering this case is not a solid strategy.

Ty has no idea how anything like this works.  In a case like this, you have to get out ahead of any negative news stories.  But, because he's got no clue what he's doing, he doesn't talk to anyone outside of Nick Reitta's little circle of grifters.  There is no way this case should have ever gotten to court, let alone to the point of being presented in case studies as a "what not to do" type example.

 

Ironbite-it should've never been filed in the first place but Vic would not be denied his rightful place atop anime history.

If anyone is interested, Greg Doucette is crowdfunding to be able to purchase the stenographer's full transcript of what went down in court.

 

As many of the people reported, a lot of it was hard to hear from the audience, especially the things Ty Beard said.
