    Well the Sail Barge had the Yakface plus a commemorative silver coin thrown in as a bonus for all the backers at no cost and after everything was done.
    *shrug*
    Who knows maybe it'll be an extra thing.

    Look at all that gorgeous sculpted detail all over the robot. That's awesome. Just awesome.

    That's why I prefer my Titan Devastator and Predaking to the later Masterpiece stuff....in their efforts to achieve toon accuracy, arms, legs, and chests are just reduced to smooth blocks with no details. Gimme that Hasui level of "greeble" every time!!

    And then look at that smooth ball prototype next to it. Obviously an unfinished early version...but to me that's the perfect example of the old MPs vs the new MPs. I'm just always going to prefer that intricate linework sculpted into the toy to provide more detail.

    Yes for Unicron you need the linework because of his immense size always showing detail heck even the Armada Unicron had this lovely detailed shot.

    There's detail, and then theres this.... Hate to say it, but armada's detailing looks cluttered...WFC unicron seems to not go overboard on the face like they did.

    Yes it's cluttered but I don't really like the super smooth face of the prototype & Zeta toys Unicron. I like the linework & detailed face of something like Armada version & the 1986 Movie close-ups.

    I've never watched Armada so I'd never seen that pic of Unicron. Pretty cool.

    Megatron goes "full 'toon". It's just that his character model has all that detail.

    I haven\'t seen it talked about here, but it proabably has been so I apologize. Anyone know if they mentioned why the changed the folding panels on the legs? The earlier prototype looked to have everything on the back, which I personally would have prefered, instead of on the side.

    As opposed to this

    Super thin and flimsy compared to the thick plastic of the final prototype it seems.

    Would have thought Wonderfest may have sparked a spike in sales over the weekend but nope.

    I was wondering about this too, but I haven't seen an explanation either.

    I\'m almost 99% sure this isn\'t going to see the light of day. It\'d be cool if it did, but I don\'t see 6,000 other people backing the project. Not because it\'s a bad toy, but because it\'s expensive as frick. I think everyone is already aware of that though.

    Ehh, it could go either way. I wouldn't be surprised to see 2-3k surge in the last week. That, coupled with online retailers and international orders might just be enough to push it over.

    Maybe TT mall and other agents didn't forward the number right away?

    They really needed to have a bigger window for allowing backers for this.
