    I don’t think it’s absurd at all. Over 3000 people attend TFCON. Those are super fans. The ones who will spend on these big ticket items and some will probably buy multiples. Then there are those like me that have never attended a con and am buying 2. You are underestimating the fandom. Also 8000 is the total goal. You will see.

    Ok, please stop the bickering. Keep it relaxed, that is all.

    I was just thinking they were due for a marketing push. I wonder when we will know what the few other surprises are?

    It was also just a thirty minute toy ad with little effort to maintain a story or continuity between episodes. Really, I think Bay's efforts were spot on if you filter out the sex jokes.

    So according to that link, it seems we will be getting a few bonus items and the design is not 100% so there is an opportunity to work on the kibble pieces that folks seem to be upset over. I still think that they could add some electronics especially if it goes over 8000 but at the end of the day I am happy to see a transformer that I have always wanted to have.

    Alright! Just put my order through Haslab for 2 from the UK.
    And now the waiting begins.....

    Oooh surprises announced directly after I purchased... maybe we've crossed some kind of critical threshold?

    (Really wish there was a better way to get these outside the US, maybe next time?)

    Yeah, revealing what these 'other surprises' are is a little overdue. I would have thought a trickle out reveal each week would have helped maintain a more constant flow of pledges.

    I really don't see this "kibble" people complain of. There's a backpack and panels on the legs, sure, but there's nothing there to complain of.

    I mean:

    At this point, they cant change the engineering because (as warden stated in an interview) if they changed the slightest thing, they had to resize and change a bunch of other panels around that small thing. So the kibble is here to stay, but the extra few surprises have me interested.

    I'm assuming one of the surprises is the damaged face.

    Curious as to others. It is coming down to the wire.

    So what happens if when it doesn't reach its target goal, are folks refunded?

    Separate loose Unicron head? They did it with Armada/Energon. I don't think its going to be anything large so it could even been smaller versions of Galvatron and the Dinobots? So many possibilities for add ons.

    Also, I agree that not much can be done with the kibble. The 3P version really didn't hide it that much better but we will never know because they haven't shown anything to date.

    The big surprise should be Stan Bush singing an updated The Touch video to come with Unicron, or a promise that if this Unicron crowdfund is successful, in two years there will be a six foot MP Unicron for the low price of $20,000, so start saving asap.

    Are they actually charging the full price in full or just authorization hold like other Pulse PO?

    They don't charge you anything unless it gets funded.
