【Hasbro社クラウドファンディング商品】トランスフォーマー WAR FOR CYBERTRON ユニクロン
Wait, so the TT Mall release is part of the crowd fund now? Interesting. But that also means you’ve gotta pay for it now no matter who you buy it from.
This should definitely help. Hopefully the goal is met. That way I can start putting away money for it.
it cost $100 dollas more than the usa version
A rough translation indicates that the orders ARE NOT PART of Hasbro's crowdfunding. It indicates that this product will be delivered in Japan WHEN the US Haslab Crowdfunding get the 8000 backers.
ハスブロ社のクラウドファンディング「HAS Lab」企画 “ユニクロン”を日本国内でも タカラトミーモールにてリクエスト受付いたします！
Hasbro's "HAS Lab" crowdfunding project "Uniclon" will be accepted at Takara Tomy Mall in Japan as well!
It is commercialized when the target number is reached all over the world.
If someone can gives a proper translation, will get a news credit too. Thanks!
I was right about the price.
"$120 more than Hasbro's offering."
Just got the email from TT Mall about this. Conversion/Exchange rate works out to $696 USD.
Yeah, I don't think it's in the cards for me to go with TT Mall for Unicron.
There's a slight chance I could swing it with Hasbro instead next month but we'll see. The missus wants to go on a bunch of vacations so I don't think Unicron is gonna happen for me in the end.
My wife could possibly translate it but... I don't think it's a good idea for her to see the yen total price.
LOL You made my day!
I can see her picking up Unicron in his planet mode and smashing that over my head just like in a cartoon or something.
Ahh, that makes more sense. Thanks!
A welcome twist from Takara's usually costing more.
It actually says production is only possible if backers from WORLDWIDE reached the goal. I think that implies TT orders will contribute.
A couple things:
First, why wouldn't it be part of Haslab's crowdfunding? If they need a minimum of 8000 units backed before it can go into production, it would make absolutely no sense to not count these orders in. (Unless Haslab doesn't really want to make it.)
Second, I don't understand why Haslab has put a limit on how many Unicrons anyone can order. The Pulse states a limit of 5, while this article says a limit of 2. I mean if someone has the means and resources to order 10 or 20, why not let them?
I assume that's a "per order" thing more than anything. Probably from a shipping logistics POV.
I would guess it's a credit card transaction liability type of thing. After all, the HasLab limit of 5 is per transaction, not person. And with free shipping in the US, there's no savings by grouping them all into one order.
Im almost wondering if they arent telling us, its because thet wanna gwt the US to 8000, but if it doesn't make it then TakaraTomys order will count. And if not, theyll be extra orders. From what John Warden said its a combined effort and they are all part of the 8000 minimum. But why arent they making it clear? Well possibly because of what i mentioned.
You might be right. I just assumed that every Unicron was going to be shipped individually anyways, so why limit what someone wants to spend?
OR they will add it up at the end? I dont know good questions though.
Here's my translation:
"We're accepting requests for Hasbro's "Haslab" crowdfunding project "Unicron" domestically at Takara Tomy Mall!
It will be produced if the target number is reached worldwide."
So if the crowdfund fails worldwide, no Unicron for anyone. I'm looking for any kind of statement that definitively states whether or not these orders count towards the 8,000. But considering they keep referring to the project as a "global crowdfund", it seems likely that the Takara Tomy Mall orders do count.
