    This.

    But I do wonder if this thing is "good" for collectors. Prices are creeping up faster than ever. A good chunk of collectors will soon be priced out of the hobby, imo.

    $20 deluxes, seldom sales, no Pulse coupons, no stock at discounters.... We are talking a permanent price increase with no alternative channels for those of us with heavy financial burdens.

    Why did it take the payment out of my bank account then put it right back in?

    when did you order? sounds like an authorization charge, which is standard practice on pulse. the campaign isnt over yet so nobody should be charged yet

    Yeah, don't expect to get charged until midnight tonight, or sometime during regular business hours tomorrow.
    I'm guessing with this many transactions at once, there will be some declines, zip code issues, etc. so Pulse will be scrambling to catch up with customer service issues. My advice is to be patient with them tomorrow. If you have a confirmation number, and you haven't cancelled your order, they will honor their agreement.

    Oh that makes sense, I knew it would be charged when it was over but I thought it would since it reach the goal. Thanks!

    Retail channels are fewer now than they were, but it isn’t as dire. Walmart (likely through mistake) already threw Siege Jetfire on clearance for $45 USD. I picked up all of Siege wave 1 Deluxe’s on sale for $12.50 each at BBTS. Yes, prices are going up. That is the way of things. I’m actually happier with the mass-market releases this year than I have been in a long while. Hasbro has something for every budget. Not everyone will want or be able to afford each toy. Omega Supreme at $159.99 isn’t that much of an increase over past Titans. And Earthrise wave 1, due in March, is the same price as Siege. Yes, this Unicron is really expensive. It isn’t indicative of the mass market pricing model though. We are getting this Unicron in chapter 3 of WFC. There will likely be tie-in toys.

    You may be right about product not making its way to discount retailers. Frankly, that is what Hasbro should be doing. Over production hurts the bottom line. While people have a chance to get great deals, like Trypticon, it isn’t a sustainable model for Hasbro. It is all about finding the right balance. It isn’t perfect and never will be.

    Well... if it failed, they’d be less likely to take risks. I’d love for them to try something like this (maybe not $600) on other iffy ideas like Raiden..

    These numbers keep going up and down now! As long as they don't drop back down under 8k. LOL Oey! That's a lot of orders to loose to do that.

    I would say, "called it", but I'm pretty sure everyone saw this coming at this point. Congrats on getting this guy funded! Now, the long two-year wait begins...

    I recall seeing depth approximations hundreds of pages back. We have officially width and height numbers for both planet and robot mode. Do we have official depths, including the stand? Time to start researching for a display case!

    Many of the smaller ones have been sending their orders in over the past 48 hours and helped account for the surge we’ve seen.
