    I agree with this 99%. My one quibble is that the people who screech back at people who hate on it are also very highly entertaining.

    Oh I agree with that too. Honestly, the level of seriousness that people take this is completely insane, yet completely hilarious at the same time. I think somewhere along the line people forgot its a toy.

    oh? 750 to go and meet the haslab webpage deadline. I wonder if they will add the other orders they have been saying made the project surpass 8k in the next 2 days?

    Up to 7250. What are the predictions for when the other retailers will start entering their orders? (trying to change the tone of the conversation here peoples! Work with me HAHA)

    Down to 750 needed. That's pretty impressive given where we were during the looooong lull after the extension.

    Thanks! Great to hear such neat details from a designer. And interesting that the man who designed G1 Fort Max still works at Takara.

    I doubt you'll find very many conversations of Takara designers talking about what's the best way to upscale/downscale their designs to make a knock off.

    I owned a few things like this as a kid. Is this a Gobot, or some weird KO thing?

    I’ve stopped tracking it closely, but if I’m not mistaken it’s basically jumped 50 in 3 hours or so. That’s amazing. I had assumed they would need the etailer backers to breach 8000, but now I am not so sure. If tomorrow has greater momentum and the last day even more than that, they may get to 8000 and then some just through Pulse.

    That would be (a minimum of) 5500 organic North American Pulse backers (not counting the 2500 WW affiliate backers plus whatever else is coming through etailers). What an incredible achievement, they were right to do the extension. Many of our constructive criticisms (chin, hands, extras, wanting more time to save money) were valid, and we’ve been rewarded. Much of our handwringing and second guessing about their strategy / marketing... maybe not so much.

    Kapow is still down. I'm guessing web gremlins got in and it's probably out of their control when it comes back up but nonetheless it doesn't help the European numbers when people can't order (through the official channel).

    Not to mention said costs increase when new features are added such as the removable head with secondary stand, the newly articulated hands and the bonus plastic pieces most people will lose because they are tiny.

    Oh right, I thought I'd read they were going to start taking orders again, then the website went down altogether. Surely in the case of a crowd fund like this they can't sell out as it's being made to order? Why wouldn't they want more, especially as we're still just below the 8000 threshold?
