    A while back when preorders went up for Takara Legends Grand Maximus they stated that if they got 3000 orders they would include a PotP Grand Max pretender shell. It failed and we never got that shell.

    Edit: Annnd ninja'd :p

    I think a lot of people came to the realization that you can get a G1 Prme cheaply, paint it gold, then glue it to a cheap stand and still have $$ to spend on other toys.  Makes me wonder if the Haslab Unicron will make it to 8000.  When I first heard about it, I was sure it would surpass the initial number and hit over 10000.  But I kept looking at the numbers as the time was ticking down and those numbers were not there.  Even by Hasbro adding all the retail numbers, the numbers slowed and then they had to extend the preorder date.  Now, looking at the numbers, I am not sure it would make the 8000 preorder number.  Makes me wonder if the E-retailers are looking at those numbers too and getting nervous.  I think they will still make it, but not at the 8000 number they were hoping for.  These failers of these crowdfunding projects are not looking good for these companies.  On top of that, the tariffs are kicking in for a lot of everyday products AND will kick in for toys in December.

    No. Cookie Monster was planted as the sacrificial goat to get peeps to jump on Unicron. Cookie served its purpose.

    Hey guys! It turns out... when the world economy is teetering... MAYBE these luxury items won't sell so well. MAYBE. :rolleyes2 

    The Japanese crowd was clearly too busy paying off their Ferrari's to remember to buy this! :D 

    HAsTak: quit raising prices and pushing more expensive stuff on your customers! OFFER SOME DAMN FREEBIES ONCE IN A WHILE! :banghead:  Frequent shopper points? Loyalty programs with items like this as a reward for purchases????
