    Didn’t someone say the hype was blown out of proportion a few days ago? Good thing Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    Was a bit doubtful he'd beat the Victory guys, nice to see he did, it was nice to see Victory on top while it lasted :p 

    Hopefully future RID updates are as faithful as this (bit unfortunate Sideburn probably won't be faithful at all, but that's another discussion).

    But man I may have to put a new shelf in just for this guy (& hopefully Gigatron) as I don't know if he'll fit in any my current shelves lol

    Also where the hell am I gonna be in Fall of 2025? Hopefully somewhere nice lol

    Regardless I'm looking forward to this, RID Optimus/Fire Convoy has gotta be the coolest fire truck transformer out there.

    One I used Paypal for and have been charged straightaway.

    One I used my CC for and payment is still pending. I did confirm authorisation when I purchased it so I just assume it's a delay in processing orders.

    -EDIT- literally just charged, seconds later :lol

    I wouldn’t panic yet.

    While we all get charged not all banks process at the exact same times. Now if they don’t charge by tomorrow you may need to reach out.

    Backed this about two weeks ago. First Haslab project I've ever backed. I feel glad to have something like this locked in. Though it seems to be taking quite some time for the charge to come through, which has me a little anxious.

    There was a time that I use to ask, "When is RID 2001 ever going to get the attention and love that it long deserves?"
    Today: Hasbro, you've made me a happy fan.

    I'm still shocked an RID 2001 Haslab did this well. I guess that "filler" line left a bigger impact than some people were saying.

    Okay look I’ve kept my mouth shut long enough.

    Look I know to most it’s in good fun, but I’ll just be glad to have less calls for T-ai whether we get her (please be tasteful for goddess sake) or not. Not saying she is bad but I can’t help but be icked after the one toy they decide to make of her.

    Of course it did. It's Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus.

    This would have sold just as well at retail, but now Hasbro avoided the risk of markdowns and shrinkage.

    After the message we've sent with our wallets, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the next 5 Haslabs:

    2026 - Powermaster Optimus Prime with Apex Armor

    2028 - Energon Optimus Prime with Omega Supreme

    2030 - Cybertron Optimus Prime and Wing Saber

    2032 - Prime Optimus Prime (Beast Hunters)

    2034 - Bayverse Optimus Prime with Jetfire

    I just got an email that my payment didn't go through. How long can I put off paying it? I get paid Wednesday next week. Anyone know if I could finagle the system and not get my order cancelled because I can't pay yet?

    It was massive. Seeing Prime in my local comic book store was an immediate, visceral thrill. I knew of the Car Robots line but it was in the land of imports. Expensive, unknowable and one to simply covet at that point in my Transformers journey. To lay eyes upon Optimus Prime again, to be able to purchase Optimus Prime again, that was a collecting moment that will remain with me forever.

    I think you have 10 days, but I'd sort it out sooner rather than later.

    I remain optimistic that the similarly resounding success of Armada Optimus Prime shall stand as sufficient counterpoint to making every 2000's Optimus into a Haslab. Because none of them are nearly so difficult as the Prime-Magnus combination, don't have nearly so much to surpass from the original mold, and each can be reasonably priced at retail.

    i think they got the message with RID omega prime. they can do them at retail even if it takes titan, titan + commander or commander plus leader to complete. they will sell.

    haslab should be reserved for very difficult to do characters, Primes will ALWAYS sell.

    lets see how they do the constructicons in 2025 and their superion. their combiner technology will dictate whether or not we even need haslab for liokaiser.
