Is that Jack White?
If they manage to keep the price lower than Unicron, let's say $400 at most, I think there is a chance Primus might be an Haslab project. Either way, be it an Haslab or a regular titan, I certainly won't say no to a giant transforming planet Cybertron to be put against Unicron, even if it's not G1 canonical.
I don’t see there ever being a market for a Primus figure (especially the same size as Unicron).
Just in terms of space I’m out, regardless of price. Unicron took up the last bit of space I had for something that large.
Not 100% sure where others are at, but I just don’t see it having the same draw.
I think I'm here too.
I would honestly be more interested in a cybertron that didn’t transform, but opened up to reveal details from the cartoon—vector sigma plus some of the other tunnels and rooms seen in some of the episodes.
if they did primus, i think it would be smaller, prob closer to titan omega in height, we know the crowd funding thing isnt limited by size anymore thanks to star saber.
Unicron didn't do very well compared to nearly every other haslab, wouldn't be surprised if Primus is shelved for good.
Isn't it the only project that had it's deadline extended?
Yes. In its defense it was an earlier haslab project. They were (and still are) trying to tweak the optimum funding strategies. There was little advance notice, less aggressive “affiliate dumps”, and no “stretch goals”. If it had been done today I’m not sure if it would necessarily have done better, but there would probably have been less anxiety over it being funded and it probably would have done so in the original time period
then again a $500 sail barge from even earlier that wasn't in the movie that long didn't have any problems
Star Wars collectors are a completely different breed than Transformers fans.
Considering Cybertron metroplex, I see a market. UT trilogy fans.
Thats probably why they felt they could bust out a $600 transformer on minimal notice. Now they have probably modified their assumptions. Basic learning curve. Either way, Haslab has been an excellent opportunity both for fans to get product that might otherwise never see the light of day and for Hasbro to get good market research at much less risk than a mass release product. I for one, am obviously glad they decided to extend the deadline. I don’t see any other way I would have ever gotten the unicron from my childhood at this scale.
Just go the Studio Cell route. Smaller, no backpack, looks nice, and cheaper. Yeah he’s only 18 inches tall, but that just means you have more options to store him!
Shadow Panther strikes!
There aren’t really 3P Star Wars options like we have
The great thing about a Star Wars HasLab project is that you know it's going to look like the movie or show, because I don't think Lucasfilm would let them do it otherwise. With them being the owners of the property with Transformers they can do whatever the hell they want and thus we get things like Unicron not being accurate to the movie. It's why I'm leery about supporting any of the properties they own.
i thought it was too lol i don't think he has forearm sleeves though
Yeah, no. If I wanted that, I'd already have it. And I don't want it
Sometimes it’s not what you want that’s important, it’s what you can actually get that is the true crux of the issue. If you don’t want to pay the late tax on a limited run Haslab Unicron, your options basically boil down to third party or Armada versions. Whatever you decide, I do wish you luck in your hunt, truly. Search the BST forums and maybe you’ll get lucky (I’ve seen crazy deals before on there). Again, best of luck in your search.
