With that stunt over the Halo switches IP, I doubt IC would agree to allow production of the Halo switches. I'm even more skeptical that they would allow MD to profit off their last-minute development of the Hakos to fill the Whitefox orders.
IMO I would just buy them directly from IC (Kono store). At least this way it ensures IC can continue to develop the awesome products for years to come (Looking at you Kira). Cause, in all honesty, the Halo switches will probably never see the light of day. It's the sad truth to how most IP disputes end, we as the MK community are the real "victims" here.
For those of you living under a rock: IC: https://input.club/official-halo-switch-statement/ MD: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/2342/massdrop-halo-switch-update 3rd Party: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/massdrop-input-club-halo-switches,35468.html

From what I've seen of the event, it mostly seems that IC didn't understand their contract and decided to make their disagreement very public (an immature move IMO). While I agree that hakos should just be bought from IC directly, I don't think that they are allowed to sell halos, only MD can. Considering that halos seem to be better than hakos, I would gladly purchase them through massdrop.

Community would be better off if I:C and MD would just look forward instead of backwards. What they need to recognize is: - You don't have a time machine to go back and fix what happened. - You want to profit from empowering your customers. - You need to get over your ruffled feathers and bring products and services your customers want.
In other words, don't be a baby, bury the past, create Win-Win-Win situation in service of your customers.
