    He uses it in the show + a neat way to use most (iirc it’s actually all) of the super mode parts when you’re not using it and not a pile of parts dangling around

    Almost 20.9k right now.
    So... the equation is another 10k backers in under 2 days to surpass bad boy Galactus. It's gonna need a final spike in backer numbers like never seen before of past TFs HasLabs.

    RID2001 and Car Robots has its fans trust me, if you pick this up and decide you’re not into it, it will sell, someone will take it off your hands for a hella decent price.

    Thank god Hasbro doesn't conduct business based solely on the complainants. If that were a thing, then this project would've been cancelled outright.

    It's literally not worth the energy to even pay attention to people like that.

    Definitely true, though I think don't know if there would be many people interested over here in Ireland, but after a Year+ of FOMO perhaps there would be people willing to take it off my hands if I end up disliking it. Though when I have it in hand I'll probably be delighted.

    Would it be cool if there was something added after this ends?

    Of course.

    But expecting something to be announced afterwards is just inviting disappointment into your life. :lol

    That isn't a very good argument for a product that will only exist if people promise to pay for it in advance...

    Isn't that the foundation of tiered crowdfunding? Or maybe I misunderstand you.

    To me, what’s “off” is the forehead. It’s a bit too tall and blocky. The cheek guards look just fine. What’s weird is that they nailed the head on Optimus’s super mode but then the Omega head is just a bit different than what my brain expects.

    It’s still a super minor nitpick on an otherwise incredible set, though. I ordered on day one and have zero regrets.

    I see that now, again. Even so, *from my experience* whenever I've made a preorder through Pulse for regular items and the Lab projects, my billing statements the payments didn't process until the items were about to ship out.

    Anyway, there's nothing left of Hotshot (the dead horse) for me to beat about this, so let's just leave it at that.

    I’m in a very similar boat.

    It’s not that it’s ugly, there is just something about it that makes me take a pause and compare it to the OG where as everything else about the set is just such a huge improvement.

    It stands out as the only side grade when the set is nearly 100 percent an upgrade.

    Yooooo...my T-AI alert just went off and brought me back here for the first time in a while.

    Now I see it was just Tony Hashbrowns getting my hopes up.

    Still backing this so hard...new pics look AMAZING.

    There's always going to be a lot of unhappy people regardless. They don't owe backers anything more than was shown, and the entitlement is crazy.

    I’ve already backed two, cuz I love CR/RID. It was a fun anime and the toys were beautiful, so I hope we get the rest of the cast, at minimum. Now I’m contemplating hard on backing a few more just because… decisions, decisions…
