    Because we NEED to reach 8,000. I think it was miscommunication.

    I think they will make some announcements before time is up. I think there's a pretty high chance we get a Galvatron, though one that will fit in its hands. So, not a general release. He might even come with the ship he gives Galvatron. Did that have a name?

    That'll be a sight- my nearly $600 Unicron sitting in the closet because of Wei Jiang's bigger, better, cheaper KO. I wouldn't be at all surprised.

    For the record, I only buy improved KO's. I believe I own exactly 1 straight KO- Ratbat and that was only because I wasn't willing to buy another Soundwave to get him.

    Fortress Maximus has great quality. But with his weight Unicron will need very strong ratchet joints and weight-distribution.
    Weight is rarely an indicator of quality.
    Except it was with Prime Wars that Hasbro uppped their game because they were forced to by 3p companies.
    During potp Hasbro dropped that effort and now Hasbro s well as 3p are down in quality from what they were before.

    I do hope this gets ko'd with less of the needless bling and at the size of a regular titan.

    Honestly I think this thing is beyond beautiful and I want it so badly it hurts. I don’t care that it’s super expensive, it’s worth it to me.

    Alas, prohibiting international orders was a huge mistake.

    Honestly while the price is hefty for a transformer... it’s not as obnoxious as it could be. This is coming from someone who has Hot Toys Endgame Thanos on preorder. And someone who has debated sniping the Lego UCS falcon for $800 multiple times. If anything, I’m amazed it’s taken this long for a single figure to cost this much.

    But this is an obnoxiously short time period. And I’m confused on the goal here- they want to sell 8000 units and will sell as many as that are backed. But the point of most crowdfunds is to raise enough money to put something fully into production, and that mass production leads to a lower price. This is a ridiculous campaign in general. If they were putting this to mass market or had given more time, I would have considered- but thanks to Thanos I’m going to have to skip this one

    This is absolutely reaching 8000 and then some. Final tally may even be around 10,000. I'm so confident I'd be willing to make some silly wager about with you, if you'd like.
