    Yeah same. If anything I might get lucky like I did with R-3X.
    Because you have good taste, peer pressure and you want to prove LucasArts wrong.

    The new deluxe ROTJ Boba is a new sculpt with increased articulation, correct? Do we think it’s a significant improvement from the ESB Boba?

    If you looks. Are fully at the photos you can see butterfly joints embedded in the chest. I think it’s a new sculpt but I’m no expert.

    not the WHOLE Death Star, but display rooms, playset-style, that would scratch that itch of the vintage 1978 playset

    still waiting on Pulse to get Sabine and Hera to me...

    HasLab Razorcrest is now at 4972 out of 6000 needed.

    Is it just me or have people really come around to the whole HasLab thing?

    Jabba’s Saul barge and Unicron came down to the wire while Sentinel, Heroquest, and the Razorcrest have all been funded in a couple day.

    Razorcrest isn’t funded yet but I can’t see it taking more than a couple more days at this rate.
    Which is great for us. If these things get funded easily then they’ll be more likely to do them and we’re more likely to get something we want that we thought that hasbro would never make.

    Maybe even smaller things like a Marvel Watcher or GI Joe Hiss Tank.

    Having a hard time following all the news today. Now that the Mandalorian Armorer is sold out on Pulse, where else can I pre-order her?

    That version is exclusive to Pulse so you'll have to wait for them to put the mass retail version up if you missed it. Unless they put more of the Pulse exclusive version up.

    That and the normal release includes less accessories than the Hasbro Pulse Exclusive.

    The Sail Barge didn't really come down to the wire. It was on a comfortable funding pace throughout the campaign. The only people biting their fingernails over it were people who don't understand that around 40% of the take comes in the last few days. It made the goal right before the final surge, which allowed it to finish with almost double the goal.

    Hasbro is getting better at directly marketing to collectors with their weekly social media engagements and special events like Pulse-Con. The recent projects have been in a sweet spot of affordability with free shipping. And the recent projects have been no-brainers in terms of massive appeal. You didn't need a Sail Barge if you didn't collect 3.75" Star Wars or didn't care about that specific scene, but the Razor Crest is for anyone who likes the Mandalorian and thinks the ship is cool -- you don't need to own a single figure to justify it.

    I think generally, HasLab has the same "approval rating" among collectors that it's always had. The first day there's a lot of grumbling about value, project selection, and Hasbro's alleged contempt for and abuse of fans. The only thing that really drowns out the cynicism is the fact that thousands of people are backing these projects anyway. It's hard to argue with success.
