    Yeah, I probably would've been better off just reading the HasLab article. But still, I wasn't far off.

    Metroplex will have to lose his title as the largest Transformer toy ever.

    Hasbro's in-house Kickstarter type projects. They put out an idea, get people to pay to back it, then make it, just like Kickstarter does.

    In planet mode he is 30 inches. He has over 50 points of articulation and the mouth in planet mode opens and closes.

    I believe just for the backers. BBTS backed a few of those Jabba yachts to sell, too, but with a big markup. I wouldn’t bet on mass release.

    Holy bloody moly, that is magnificent. I mean, I’m sure the back of it’s a hilarious mess of panels and holes but who cares, the front/sides are perfect and the facing planet mode is the Unicron I’ve always wanted.

    I can afford it but have no room for it so almost certainly won’t be joining in for it but god knows, I want to. That’s the Unicron I’ve dreamed of getting, the one I’ve always measured the lame, substandard disappointments against over the years.

    Bravo.

    I wish they didn’t want all the money upfront. I would gladly back if I could make payments. Especially since the release is expected in 2021.

    Oh god. I want this so bad, but there\'s no way I could get the money for it!  There goes my goal of completing the War for Cybertron trilogy.

    I'd be a lot more interested if I could do him in payments or had more than a month and a half to decide. I mean, if he ends up coming out with any big QC concerns, I'd feel pretty bummed I spent 'nice new TV' money on him. ><

    8000 is a lot of people. I hope it gets funded. If Super 7 can rip everybody off with their Snake Mountain, then this should get funded because we are actually getting something exciting here. There should be a payment plan too

    Since when has this site been limited to kissing Hasbro's rear? I thought the whole 3rd Party thing would've put an end to that. Are we not allowed to discuss our disappointment that Hasbro decided to put Unicron in Haslabs instead of a regular Titan like most of us were expecting?

    Meaning if you got a fat wallet and get 5 of them. Which is the max, you can resell it way over market price. Just shows...who has money can make more, who has no money. Can't make any.

    My anniversary trip is mid August, so if I have anything left over afterwords I may be putting in an order for this guy.

    He just looks too good to not even consider picking up.

    Tempted. I spent more in aquiring my Hot Toys Heath Ledger Joker (though I traded in a bunch of stuff for that)

    Not sure how this will be funded by 8000 people plus the price on it.

    But those posable planetary rings, moving eyes, opening mouth and 30 inches in planet mode are just to die for.
