I've always been fond of bullseye's scientific approach and continued efforts, and that's a fairly high bar to set. Say what you will about the specifics of the situation, but the smartest thing they did was try to keep the customer informed when dealing with Portland and the production loss.

Oceanside's mentality seems to be, "You'll hear about it when it hits the shelves" or "we're out and have decided to discontinue". That's not something I can plan around, so I'll avoid it. I really don't care about 20 new colors when I can't get the standard I need for a commission. Spectum really only had two things going for it, price and sheet surface; both are now a wash at best. There was nearly a two year hiatus on their cullet, and for a small studio with little storage, that's a lifetime. An exodus was inevitable.
