    No. I've posted some of the more informational posts in this thread. I've broken down the way the Transformation works. I've largely ignored the negative nancying and took no part in the whole Unicron v Zeta 3P convo. I've been nothing but positive in this thread.

    But it's simply objectively obnoxious at this point... what... 3 months later? 4 months later? To be repeating the same flimsy gripes with something that is supposed to bring people some joy in their lives.

    If this is not the figure for you, then move on. Lord knows, there are hundreds of other big ticket items to choose from. But months later, points of disagreement about what is being offered have descended to the point of whining. That's not healthy. Do you even know why you're doing it? What's your endgame here? To get this not funded? Basically too late for that. To change the product? Not happening. To stir discussion? Nothing new has been added by the "we think Unicron sucks" brigade in months, so it really isn't a discussion... it's more so a reiterating of what's been reiterated a dozen times.

    If you need something new to do to stay busy I'm sure I can help you out. Because really, this is silly. If this toy does not make you happy, there are other toys that can. Walk away. We will have a healther community when folks realize what are hills worth dying on, and what's not. And I don't think there is a hill WORTH dying on when it comes to Transformers. Because they are, after all, toys. Expensive toys. But toys. And it's about joy. If it's about anger - if anything about this hobby ever makes anyone angry - quit the hobby. To that person I say, you're done... you need to get into a healthy spot again.

    Haven't kept up with the news. So what's the new development here? Only 1000 away, have all sources been added?

    3rd party (non-affiliate) sources will not be added until the last day... possibly not until after the deadline, even, so far as we'll be able to see them.

    Detolfs are made with tempered glass, which is 4x stronger than regular glass. I wouldn’t worry about the weight especially distributed over more than one case. The thing to worry is if Unicron fell from that height, it’ll be disastrous.

    Cyberverse Gnaw is sold out at a number of online retailers as well the brick and mortar stores in my area unless I'm willing to pay over retail cost.

    Probably mentioned already but that 7000 backers Instagram post was removed. Looks like they just accidentally fired it too early.

    This seems like important news. Maybe they only had a set amount allocated to them? If so then I think it's probably a good sign that Hasbro's expectations for them were exceeded.

    After a really great morning, the count seems to have stalled out in the 6930-40s range for a while now. I don’t think it ultimately matters but they probably should have saved the comic bundle news for today. Wasn’t needed yesterday (it was almost an afterthought after the affiliate update) and would have helped bridge the excitement between the minis/head stand additions and NYCC. A piece of news every day keeps it top of mind.

    I think you picked an appropriate name for yourself, Nancy.

    What's the endgame of posting on a forum at all? Why don't we just use the "Like" button for everything instead?

    And speaking of obtuse, I wasn't referring to your complaint of ad nausea complaining, but instead your choice of words in telling people they need to grow up for repeating an opinion that otherwise breaks no rules.

    It's not about the board rules, it's about you trying to somehow diminish the repeated opinions of others to the point that you feel like they need to grow up.

    Ignore them. That's more grown up then anything you've said so far.

    Obtuse indeed.

    IKEA rates the strength at 8 lbs. per shelf. Even putting him on two shelves with equal weight distribution will crush the shelves.

    But please, don't take IKEA's word for it. You do you.

    The last 1000 figures will be bought by IKEA, just to ensure that 7000 people need to replace their broken furniture...

    This awesome post should be a crowdfund extra for Unicron backers who have followed this thread since the early days. Like a badge of courage or something.
