    18.8%
  3. I'd buy it if it was $300! Not $600. No way Jose.

    18.0%
  4. I would buy it, but he seems very overpriced for what you get. Why no lights & sounds?

    5.9%
  5. For the price, I'd really want to see a review first before dropping any money down on it.

    7.0%
  6. HELL NAW!

    20.3%
  7. What are you nuts?!?! I don't have the room for that!

    15.3%

    5.7%
  9. I would, but I don't live in North America. :(

    5.9%
  10. I'm only buying it to flip it later! This is gonna be HUGE on the aftermarket! *laughs in Mr. Krabs*

    The legs are in a position that looks like it cannot even stand up.

    It's the Titans Return design shrunk waaaaay down.
    Here's a shitty Photoshop of him fully painted:

    I still say they should include 3 to 4 blast effects that are the light coming out of his body and eye before he blew up.

    Maybe even make his lower leg removable to match the movie scene.

    I'm not going to delude myself into thinking I would have changed my mind and backed it if they included blast effects or lights / sounds, but I do genuinely wonder given the design (the torso seems like a solid chunk) why they couldn't / wouldn't incorporate it - nothing really would have to be sacrificed to do so. I guess the head might not be removable - but again at this pricepoint I don't think it's too much to ask to include a second head.

    This is why there should be a laugh react.

    This is looking very good at this point. The last two days will pass definitely just like the sail barge. The big numbers will come the last two days. This will exceed the amount needed.

    Honestly tf stuff is very hard to resell with the mass amount they make and constantly reissuing things over and over again till they become worthless. Also the ko will bring prices to retail as all those g1 stuff. People do buy them taking prices to retail. I’m sure they will eventually ko this as well due to the molds and factories in China who makes these toys. What is there they haven’t ko? This will probably get a little to begin with but not enough to be worth the time and risk after the high fees. They will make great trade bait though. With that said I will probably get a few extras if I have the money ready. Imo a few extras is fine like 1-5 pieces. This way you won’t get stuck with them. I’m definitely not po 30-50 of these though. This will have a hard time retaining its value in time if others copy or reissues it in a similar form.

    Galvatron looks like a super rushed 3d printed mess. The final should hopefully be better. Suppose it could pass for a future Bayverse prototype as well.

    Problem with a Unicron KO is that Haslab Unicron is not supposed to be produced again. And 19 pounds of plastic at his size and volume is really expensive to ship from China. You're not getting epacket shipping with that thing.

    Edit : also including the light Unicron uses in planet mode when he's devouring a planet would also be nice to include.

    I originally said no...but if it gets closer to 7500 or so in the last few hours...i may just do it and find some way to justify (or hide it) from my wife?

    Well if you can't hide IT, it's big enough that you can hide yourself behind it.

    The closer I get, the more I’m thinking it’s a no. There are too many things I want to do around my house to justify that much money. I hope it gets funded and you all love it though.
