    18 days left and they have less then 2500 people 
    willing to pay about 600 for 19 pound foot breaking god

    doesn\'t look good so far for his production 
    looks like the armada mold may be the only planet unicron unless it changes real fast, if they scaled it down and dropped the price i bet it would have more 
    backers, I’d say a supreme/commander class would have done it

    There are more trolls on TFW forums than backers of Haslab's Unicron. Here's hoping that changes in 18 days.

    At that point would they even need to crowdfund it?

    enough with whether Unicron gets funded or not...

    the real question is will this thread catch up with the MP-44 one? ;) 

    It's got about a third of the replies and a sixth of the views, but that's over less than 30 days compared to over a year for MP-44

    No not really, I’d pay around 150-250
    For it at a small size
    Honestly never bought a titan class figure because none of them were ever characters I really cared much for, aside from devastator who was just a brick so I didn’t bother, but i have all four different supreme class unicron’s

    The major problem for most people is the price tag in the time frame, it's just too soon, most collectors can't afford to set aside 200 bucks a payday till this campaign ends, haslab should change their model to a payment plan one like Sideshow, garuntee people would buy if they could spread payments out a bit more

    Yeah basically I’d rather pay 100 a month rather then have unicron destroyer of wallets happen in one chomp

    This ^^

    I'd love to be able to back it. But I just cant find a way of making it doable.

    Good luck to all those who are putting the money down. Hope it all goes through for you.

    Wait, and lemme get this straight. If this doesn't get all 8000 backers, the people who did back up Hasbro, won't get refunds, right?

    All money goes back, even those who paid into BBTS et al with "non-refundable" deposits. Or more accurately, Hasbro isn't charging until Aug. 31, once/if the 8000 minimum orders are met.

    Why would you think otherwise? They're not going to cut and run. This is how crowdfunding works.

    If it does not get 8,000 backers, everyone will be refunded/not charged



    (don't want to see this spread as a rumor...)

    Nah. I get it. We all want our shinies and we all want to be right. Comes with being human and I'm prone to being a grumpy gus just like anyone else. Still, unless someone's just being deliberately obtuse I really put in a solid effort to not jump into people's faces and talk to them like they're a six year old child.

    This is gonna cause a lot of passion - big project, big character, controversial marketing/sales plan. A little courtesy never killed anyone though.

    Nope. Nothing happens if it's not backed. Hasbro does not pass Go, does not collect $600 x (n) Dollars.

    What's that supposed to mean?

    Because it's Hasbro, they have a reputation to uphold. They're not some fly-by-night scam-artist outfit.

    That's exactly why they can't run. Now 3rd parties on the other hand, can easily go off into the night on a whim....

    I didn't realize Hasbro had a history of cut & run with consumers' money, can you give some examples of when this has happened?
