    You'll probably pay the same at a convention as you would shipping it from a store. My experience with conventions is they always add quite a markup unless you risk waiting til the last hours and you have more haggle power.

    You know what, I’m 100% here for these kind of updates. A toy engineer’s cat chewing on a prototype? Fuck yes.

    Yeah, it feels like the neat flip side of all the social distancing we've been doing is that because it meant someone had the toy prototype at their home rather than the office, we got some fun photos out of it.

    I'm glad we have some clear dimensions (even if they're not quite final yet). I'm super stoked for this guy. Just when I thought we weren't going to get an update until August, they updated. Just awesome.

    So my source last year said we were getting a Quint ship to go with this. Looking at the box it seems to be a real possibility!

    Awesome update. I spent some time laughing with my wife over the pictures. Also good to know I could possibly sleep in the box next year.

    What a fun update. It's great to see some progress in times like these, and it's also fun to see this beast in more normal conditions...like on someone's kitchen counter. That was a definite laugh and say, "oh god, what have I gotten myself into?"

    This was great, I think he's looking great and I'm excited for more updates as we go.

    Just noticed by looking at the mold that the face and the ship stand will be molded out of clear plastic. At least it's not a joint.

    Edit: Oh derf. Of course the face is clear, the eyes need to be visible, haha.

    My heart dropped when i got the email. Thought they may have delayed or even cancelled it! Looks like it is still on track for release. And will ship in planet mode.

    how did you come to that conclusion. i dont see anything on the mold that showed any clear plastic.

    also, i dont think that would be a great material for the stand. i cant see haslab moulding this out of lucite as well. that is just too complicated for the process....just curious
