    No way, just look at Rodimus, he’ll be a voyager with an in scale trailer and a bunch of accessories to offset the price. An 8 inch bot made to the commander class standard would eat up enough of the cost that the trailer would be worse than the one that came with er prime.

    I've got to ask:

    Did I imagine some statement about not making Prime a Haslab? I mean even if there was such a statement, they technically didn't lie but I'm sure I saw something along those lines.

    It has been mentioned, no joke, like 40 times in this thread and it has been debunked just as many times. It was an off the cuff statement and not the rule.

    Evan said that, because at the time he believed it. Plans change though. He apologized at least twice during the omega prime stream for saying that. :dunce 


    I backed my 1. My only minor gripe is that the Bluebolts mold is locked into this project and won't get any recolors

    Man at this point the only thing probably slowing down the backer count is people waiting on payday.

    Which I've never understood.

    It doesn't matter if you get paid now, or four weeks from now, you're still not getting charged until it ends.

    The same goes for those "I'm gonna wait until it funds before I jump in" folks. :lol

    I'll be honest I'm kinda conflicted about this guy. On the one hand I recently had to let go of my original RID Prime so this is sorta perfect timing to pick up a complete omega Prime with some new bells and whistles. On the other hand I have tuition payments coming up, and he's just so big! Like, part of the theoretical appeal of a new Fire Convoy was that he'd be a little smaller and scale a little better to the rest of the mainline, and thats aside from the price. But on the other other hand his size is cool as fuck! I'm glad Haslabs have such long backing periods cause there's so many hurdles I need to jump before I can justify buying this (admittedly incredibly awesome) set

    For better or worse, we should treat this as a Masterpiece figure and not a mainline.

    Do keep in mind there's always a push a the beginning, a long lull, another bump when they have an update stream, another lull, and then a mad dash at the end.

    I am encouraged by the appx 50% in 24 hours... hopefully they do have a 3rd stretch goal waiting...

    Saw this posted on Twitter, given how many people I’ve seen asking for Splendid Convoy, hope they can work something out. Personally I’m also hoping Black Fire Convoy is also on the table :lol  this is the issue with putting a Prime on a Haslab, the repaints left on the table are also in demand by fans, so I guess this is also an opportunity by Hasbro to see how they deal with it.

    To be fair I think one of the reasons we haven't seen repaints is because I feel like the past HasLabs don't really have a ton of repaint potential. Maybe Unicron, but the cost of that would be...yeesh. This release has a lot more potential for something like that imo.

    As much as I would love that, I think I'd like them to finish out Armada Prime's add ons if they plan on doing that. That being said, I'm wondering if those offerings could be leader class figures.

    That’s true, Victory Saber has a black repaint possibility but I dont think it was that well received. Again that’s the problem with a Prime, particularly this mold, as it had a few repaints/retools that are popular because of fiction (Splendid and OTFCC Defensor) or rarity (Black Fire Convoy)
