so.... did you do it?
Unicron: I am inevitable. Congrats to the Lord of Chaos on reaching 8000 backs.
Light his direst hour.
I turn 21 on Wednesday, so I'll be popping my celebratory champagne later this week. But congrats for 8000! Hope we get to see some more BTS videos on the development of this.
The hell's going on? We've lost almost 40 backers. Back down to 8350.
Yes! I am so pleased this got funded, and actually I don't mind the wait until Unicron devours my shelf space.
Although, My bank balance has proceeded on it's way to oblivion.
$575 x 8000 = $4,600,000. In about a year, someone is going to be on a yacht enjoying the sweet life.
Maybe some people decided they didn't need that many extras now that we're passed our goal.
Kay....We're now loosing backers again. Yes we're now 350 over what we needed but....everyone has been so wishy washy through this ENTIRE thing....losing those 350 by morning would NOT shock me. Not to be ultra negative but...seriously?....who in lords name pulls out now? what even.......
Yeppers. My wife enjoys seeing me happy about acquiring figures, and gets cuddly when she sees me happily appreciating my toys. We’d both like them to be cheaper, but at the moment both still think it’s worth the enjoyment I get out of it. She would’ve been on board with me backing Unicron if I had’ve been into it myself — and we ain’t well off!
When I first saw the original four Classics deluxes back in 2006, and she saw my excitement upon realizing Transformers still existed, I guiltily chose one to buy (Rodimus) after she convinced me the guilt was misplaced. While I was at the register, she went back and grabbed the other three, told me that I like them all, currently have the money in my account, will be thinking about them with regret if I don’t get them, and that it’s not that big of a deal!
Thousands of TFs later she’s still enjoying sharing my enjoyment! I think a lot of spouses just don’t realize how much their partners are getting out of it.
Excellent news, took a bit of finagling to get there but if you pledged you win so who's gonna cry foul? Cookie Monster maybe? Great stuff.
Hasn’t moved in 20 minutes, so maybe it was Hasbro adjusting numbers
Or it's late and people don't order in their sleep haha.
With the success of this Project, Haslab has just announced Primus!!!!! See the video announcement below. So EXCITED, great time to be a transformers fan!
Now I'm thinking how much I need second Unicron, so he won't be alone on the shelf
Maybe a bunch of people piled on wanting the 8000th order but didn't get it so now they're pulling out and waiting for another number that is significant to them.
And I'm going to call it.....never gonna happen. GI Joe is dead as hell as a brand, and GI Joe collectors are notoriously cheap. Every time Hasbro would throw them a bone and tool up a new vehicle, they'd wait for it to go on clearance. Well, you reap what you sow when you vote with your wallet, and Hasbro got the message loud and clear that Joe fans don't pay the big bucks.
Losing. LOSING. For fuck's sake it's LOSE not LOOSE. FUUUUUUUCK why must we continue to destroy the English language???
As soon as I see someone write "loose" instead of "lose" I immediately stop reading and go on to the next post. Same with "should of" instead of "should have."
Seeing that is like hearing nails on a chalkboard for me.
Apologies if English is your second language, of course. If it's not...well.
Anyway, sorry to derail. Unicron is neat.
But 40 people cancelled?
Congratulations on 8000
