“Of course! The solution was flex tape!”
Flex-tape is always the solution
It is water proof so it takes care of two issues at once.
Anyone else notice the number on Haslab went to 12000+
Oh no...it's back!
This thing has shown that the more expensive an item is, the more successful it's going to be. Compare this to the barge, and the later only exceeds its required numbers by less than 50%.
Let's go Hasbro!!!!
The real question is, will anyone care?
The figure's being made. 8,000, 12,000, 12,000,000... so what? You're getting yours, I'm getting mine. Everyone is getting theirs.
I mean, at best, knowing the final total is general trivia. At worst, some aftermarket eBay seller uses, "limited to x-many!" as their bait on a inflated hook.
Well, this is obviously the kind of trivia I'm into (at least in regard to convention exclusives), so there's that...
Beyond the "eBay hook" you've described (and, yes, full disclosure, I have done exactly that when selling convention exclusives), the actual aftermarket value will probably be affected by these production numbers (broadly speaking, harder to get = higher value), so wholly apart from the tactics used, those who plan on reselling their Unicrons later probably have a legitimate interest in the production numbers.
12,000+ backers now huh? Really? That goes against what the HTML code has been saying since the campaign ended but hey, I'll take it.
I suppose, but pointless is pointless. The only thing I ever cared about in regard to final count was it clearing 8,000. Of this final number, I only care about the two that are to arrive on my doorstep sometime in 2021.
from what I've found the HTML code was changed to 12,000+
Final HTML Code:
<WhateverTheHellWeWant>Put Number Here</WhateverTheHellWeWant>
couldn't agree more. who gives a damn about the number at the point. it's being made. done.
Damn. Unicron aside, I now kind of want to buy an Inspector Gadget action figure.
I’ve always wanted one...prices have gotten crazy, though...
Now the waiting begins.
Yep. They changed the number to 12,000 + and modified the bar code to remove the percentage to goal.
Of course this is useless information, but isn't that what the internet is for?
I'm more curious why Unicron is still listed in Past Projects instead of In Production.
"Pointless" to you =/= "pointless" to everyone else.
I don't know what to tell you: opinion of yours, doesn't matter to me?
They made yours, they made mine, they made everyone else's who bought one. That's all that really matter in the end.
The total number, trivial and purely speculative [making it even less important] unless Hasbro releases an official count.
If memory serves. It's not the most well built toy, this isn't the 30 years of fogged over memory from childhood talking but rather the memory of the one I bought for my cousin maybe five years ago to replace her childhood figure.
It won't explode upon touching it but for a toy dating back to '83, the plastic used probably hasn't held up the best.
Unless you're just a diehard Inspector Gadget fan, love it from afar and save your money for something you really know you'll enjoy.
The reason it’s interesting is if this was really successful than that increases the chance of getting another transformers haslab project in the future like Primus.
