    Crowdfund extra idea:
    -- Weird Al Yankovic makes this into a parody song. Featuring a very angry Eminem.

    One assumes that if there are cancellations for that purpose, they'd be far more likely to come off of 3rd party retailers than from US Hasbro Pulse....

    I haven't got anything to add to the debate just wanted to say I didn't realise we had someone from Kapow on the boards. I've only been a member for a few months so I've obviously missed that detail up til now. Cool to know as I've been purchasing off there for years. Howdy!

    Just going to leave this here sans any real commentary. Another day with insignificant movement. Unicron v 2.0.jpg

    The model seems to justify why haslab should only do 45 day crowdfunds.

    In retrospect, the work should have been done on the front end, with Global affiliates and such. Things they will work out when they do the USS Flagg

    Cool beans, thanks for all the info!
    Yes the fandom can be taxing. Just check this topic and all the arguments about Unicron and Zeta and toy designs and plastic quality and economics discussions... I have been following since day 1 since I care about Unicron, and I am still about a 100 pages behind the current discussion.
    Well the heaviest item in my collection will be Unicron likely - if he hits the goal - so you don't have to worry about that! ;) 
    I am still not quite sure what it means for your store that you are now the official fan retailer. Will this affect the prices? Or does this mean you no longer have to go through Hasbro UK but to receive the items directly from the factories?

    Good luck on waiting for HasLab exclusive limited number Unicron to EVER be on Amazon. ;) 
    And their policy says that they DO offer part replacement for HasLab crowdfunded items. Not regular HasbroPulse sold items, but on the crowdfunding.


    Umm, no, Hasbro already added TakaraTomyMall and the Australian and Hasbro Asia retailer orders, that was the 1503 bump some weeks ago. I don't know where you got this but last I checked, all orders made anywhere will be added to HasbroPulse's count, the only difference is that Hasbro affiliated retailers will have them added to the total sooner while other retailers only at the very end. The Jabba Barge saw a similar last day surge for the same reasons.

    Now admittedly my rhyming chops are questionable but...

    this now is a broken record Hasbro could not sell this ball of mess toy
    they first open it only to certain parts of the world thinking they could sell it and bring joy
    then try to open up to other places
    but that didn’t work, it did not bring in new faces
    then extend it two months because they came nowhere close
    then went after another company, zeta, who's version was grandiose

    Now who wants to see Unicron's flag unfurled
    Let's open Haslab crowdfunding to the rest of the world!

    I think this is right but I would imagine for future projects like Flagg, they’ll scale back and try to keep the price in the $300-400 range. I think Unicron might well have been funded now if it were smaller scale but in that price band.

    if a third party seller puts it on amazon, it'll be three times the price too.

    Hmm, already ordered this with Alan (TFS-Express) during the original campaign timescale.
    Andy is a little late to the game, and I still have outstanding pre-orders with Kapow for Siege Soundwave, Sixgun, Chromia, Impactor, Reflector (3 off) and Brunt, so you'll have to forgive me for not having a huge amount of confidence in Kapow at the moment.
    I usually never air my dirty laundry like this, but I've got no joy from e-mailing them directly.
    I'm a long-time Kapow customer who isn't feeling the love right now.

    Dude, did you even read the HasbroPulse page???
    Transformers: War For Cybertron Unicron – Hasbro Pulse
    Remember, if the project doesn’t reach 8,000 backers by October 6th, the product will not move into production. Also, orders for Unicron will no longer be accepted after October 6th. If you want to add this once-in-a-lifetime figure to your Transformers collection, you must back this project before the deadline.
    This will hit mass retail on Neveryear, NoMoreMonth, NoneDay. You have until October 6th to preorder one, directly from HasbroPulse or any retailer. After that, no more Unicrons will be made. Your only chance of getting one will be from those who bought multiples for re-sale, and you can already guess about aftermarket prices. ;) 
    This would not be the only limited number Unicron, the porcellain statue from a decade ago was limited to 2500 I believe.

    Why do I need another unicron? He will never be in scale. This was just a poor decision by marketing.

    forget Amazon though. if this thing makes it to ebay, the original G1 grand max, ehobby's shining magnus, etc are all going to have a new price competitor!
