    And therein lies the rub. Some clarity from Hasbro would be appreciated.

    ...I wonder if Hasbro's marketing team is hiring.

    Edit: Oh hey they are!

    The Zeta version clearly cleans up much better than the Hasbro incarnation, but it doesn't nail the aesthetics quite like Hasbro.

    Thanks man! I've already been blasted by one person for being too pro-Hasbro. Now I just need someone to say I'm being too pro-Zeta and I know I have done my job correctly! :D

    “Japanese numbers not included, let’s work together toward 8000” reads more like they’re not YET included to me

    Tinfoil hat time.

    Perhaps, Hasbro initially planned to use resellers' orders as a form of "backup"; if the crowdfunding goes awry, break the emergency glass and add reseller orders to the overall count.

    But the crowdfunding effort gained momentum during the closing days of the first deadline, and Hasbro thought to themselves, "maybe, the crowdfunding just needs a little more time to succeed, we might not even need resellers' orders to hit the 8,000 mark."

    That could explain the mixed messaging that we are seeing.

    Ok hows this? "How dare you. I see no praising of hasbro you must be pro zeta because I see no cons in your lists on that side"
    So you guys feel worried about him not making it? If you were to believe in visions of the future. I've seen he makes it in a dream. If you are logical and dont believe such nonsense such as dreams being visions of the future. The extension adds better odds of him being funded. I had slim hope before. I have a stronger resolve to see him made.
    Anyways back to discussing unicron

    A valid possibility that would explain the observed facts.

    I mean, if every third party vendor order took away one from the crowdfunding effort, surely Hasbro would be shouting about it.

    They said it from the beginning. If u are not ordering from north America it doesn't count towards the 8000. I said this earlier and got told I was full of shit. I am but I didn't need to be told

    You've been greatly misinformed.

    Again, Brandon at The Chosen Prime said their numbers count, but only at the end of the crowdfund.

    That's as good as it gets, right from the source.

    No, right from the source would be Hasbro. Not besmirching this Brandon's authority or honesty but third party vendors have an interest in us ordering through them rather than Pulse.

    That said imho TCP is the best authority we have atm. In combination with common sense I reckon 3pv orders will count - on balance, best guess.

    I'd just like to hear something definitive from Hasbro.

    3p sites order through the Haslab site like us, so to those saying they don’t, yes they count. They don’t get some special other site that retailers can only use. They use the same exact site as us and thus it counts towards the crowdfund.
