    Again, the panel on Thursday is going to be a victory dance for Hasbro. No way they let this fail now. It’s all irrelevant. Unicron is coming.

    The updated hands are definitely appreciated, but with the size of the figure, it couldn't have been to hard to make the hands as articulated as SOC GaoGaiGar. Nevertheless, my excitement continues and I'm sure it'll hit the goal, especially since it seems like Hasbro really wants this to happen.

    Trying in vain, since all real fans / expert collectors are waiting for Zeta Toys ZV-02 Core Star!:D

    Nope. The deliveries have been sent randomly, not first come first serve, and Hasbro rep claimed their shipment got damaged on the way to them. So they just cancelled the orders.

    I've been holding onto some screenshots of comments by the industry experts on here on how this was going to fail and they're continuous arguing with people that were saying, you don't have a crystal ball - let's wait and see. i can't wait to revisit those.
    hopefully, aside from giving people a unicron, this experience may teach a particular group of people a thing or two - don't get into heated commentary when you really don't know the future, don't work for hasbro and are not an industry expert...and don't rely on wiki and what is says about marketing, how to run a business, etc. try to stick with the facts, not wiki.

    Don't see how its Hasbro's fault that the mail damaged the shipment then... no matter who you buy from, hasbro, zeta, maketoys, fanstoys, they all use the mail, and the mail will beat the ever-loving hell out of packages no matter who sent them. I trust Hasbro to deliver on the figure they promised, but don't trust the mail in the slightest.

    oooo, You wouldn't mind sending over some of those in a PM would ya? I've been gathering opinions as well and hoped to make something with em :D

    They are the ones saying, or will be saying, that Hasbro faked the numbers (like the moon landing) and it's all a conspiracy.

    And 6500 was the supposed "magic number" to hit before the e-tailers drop in their orders, which (hopefully) pushes it to 8000.

    I see what you did there....1986lbs. Very clever :p 

    Seriously though, thanks Graph Guy! This has been an exciting day, to be sure.

    Quebec office and Rhode Island HQ are EST. Presumably their day is over about 5. Hehe

    Now that the shipping weight has been brought up, just how gigantic do you guys think the BOX is gonna be? Especially with all these extras like the comics and the poster. Not to mention Unicron's wings will probably be packaged detached from the main body. Holy hell.

    I'm actually incredibly optimistic. I was on the fence when it was first announced, but the SDCC display was what pushed me to back it. Here's hoping for one last push by the end of the week :D 

    Also, :lol  at the cat pun.
