    Its got about 5700 backers ..no telling how many etailers ....... if Hasbro thought it was a slam dunk... it wouldnt of been a crowdfund... it would of just went into production. The reason its being crowdfunded is to see if 8000 want it...... if 8000 dont want it... well hasbro did the right thing in not just putting it into production huh?

    I just want the campaign to be done and over with already, whether he gets fully backed or not. I backed him during the first 3 days but at this point I really don't even care anymore. The wait for him to be shipped won't be nearly this bad because it'll be a certainty then that he's coming on a relatively set-in-stone date. But this, this is ridiculous. Waiting around for what is now an unknown amount of time (not knowing if Hasbro will extend the deadline again or not) for confirmation that a product will or will not be made...it's frustrating as all hell in my opinion.

    yepp. as long as it's bigger. that's all that matters. that's the point of unicron in case you didn't realize it. and in the world of figures, four inches goes a long way. after all, they are toys....and i say that because i know you'll respond with more matter of facts and what not....reminder: we're talking about a toy. not ncaa basketball tryouts.
    just to remind you.

    Much as I hate to admit it, I worry he may not be wrong, though. This campaign has barely jumped up 100 backers in the 3 weeks since it was extended. The inclusion of Kapow Toys preorders to the 8,000 goal makes me optimistic, but until we see any indication of the numbers they're pulling, I think our best hope at this point may be for Hasbro to push the deadline back further. While this will likely result in another wave of preorders slowly dropping off again, hopefully it'll help bring it closer to a reality by encouraging Hasbro to include more markets and worldwide orders into the 8,000 goal.

    he or she is probably not backing it, which is with the scale comment... based on his or her other posts, he or she probably isn't backing it.
    my view - i don't care. my point about unicron toweing over fort max was, as it happens often here, taken too literally. unicron is bigger - as unicron SHOULD be - done. and when it comes to those not backing it sticking around this thread, well, we all know how that turns out with the commentary, the fighting, etc.
    it's just pathetic when stuff like that happens.
    and as i and others frequently mention, there are numbers we don't know about. let"s wait till it's done and see what happens.

    It was extended on the 27th... gained a few hundred backers...... but if you are talking about since the 31st then yeah.. only 100 that we know of. We dont know the numbers of the other etailers.

    the extension was for people that needed more time.......... and those people .. they'll be signing up over the next 2 weeks when they've had some more paydays to save up. and like always with crowdfunds... you'll see people get extra's and get others to sign up towards the end to try and make it get funded....

    that's exactly it. why do they keep having to hang around here? it's weird. there are alot of things i want nothing to do with when it comes to the universe of transformers but i don't go hanging around those threads being a troll.
    makes no sense.

    I for one, always echo G1 Razorclaw's motto when this comes up:
    [​IMG]

    I was OK with funding this toy and waiting until 2021 to get it. I am then no less OK with waiting more months for the crowdfunding to end so I can be SURE it happens.
    I rather wait a few more months until 8000 comes together than lose this chance of a lifetime forever.

    In what way is crowdfunding for the European release of Unicron good news?
    First of all they picked the UK. And second what EU site wasn't helping with the crowfunding?

    throw 'em on the ignore list. helps - less scrowling and reading through immature smart-ass crap and more focus on a mature and respectful discussion.

    you know folks, no one knows what another person's life looks like. a figure, any figure, could mean a heck of a lot to someone for a variety of reasons. think about the person with 6 months to live in the hospital with one last wish...be it meeting a baseball player, getting that baseball card or getting that figure. whatever the case, again, we don't know anything about anyone on here. keep that in mind when you choose to post a smart ass remark to someone who is excited for this thing to happen.
    the smart ass crap is ridiculous. move on, or better yet, get a life.
    all in all, the point is, those that don't want anything to do with this figure have a right to not want it, but why bother with those that do? what do you get out of it and why aren't those comments being removed for a better place to discuss this thing?
