    They don't charge your payment method UNLESS they get all the backers they need. So if you pledge the money but only 7999 people back this by 8/31, they just won't charge you.

    It's not charged until the goal is hit, and only at the target date.

    It's beautiful. It really is. But I could never justify that price to myself or my wife. As it stands, armada unicron remains my unicron and the yang to his yin(or is it yin to his yang?) Is cybertron primus. They stand together as the centerpieces of my collection. I'm glad everyone else has a shot at this. I'm kinda jealous. But that's a mortgage payment I am hoping to be able to make.

    Does anyone happen to know the height in inches of Armada Unicron?

    I'm trying to scale this thing in my head. It's as tall as Metroplex and Trypticon right?

    But wow that price tag. As others have said it looks nice but I can't pay that.

    Just over 16 inches if you count his horns.

    It's taller than either. There's a photo in the promo video that shows it next to Titans Return Fort Max (who is a smidge taller than Metroplex), and it's several inches taller.

    Just was looking at my bank statements thanks to the Unicron announcement and noticed that I was charged for Ectotron on July 12th but it doesn't show as shipped yet.

    Living in California makes this kinda easier to sell to my wife, sweetie, it's only 1/5 of one mortgage payment!

    Ordinarily, I'd say that's probably true, but I actually think it's more likely that the price will drop. The size isn't going to be enough to keep its market-value. Rarity is typically a far more definitive factor, and it's going to be less rare than ANY BotCon toy.

    If it's popular enough, and in high enough demand, the price might indeed go up, but I have some significant doubts.

    And slight remolds. The Skiff sells for how.much on the secondary market now? Normally I'm against speculation on toys as you usually lose money but in this case. Well, it's your money and it'll help me get what I want so I say go for it.

    Totally selfish, of course, I'm actually not sure it'll be worth it :D 

    Oh and many of the Botcon toys had exclusive heads so.they were also.slight retools. Not all.of them, of course!

    They do however hit your card with an authorization so you need to have the final amount available on your card at time of purchase. :thumb

    This is just...wow. Let's see. If I don't eat at con and only buy 1 thing, I can probably maybe come back with half the money to pre-order this. Challenge accepted!

    Always have room for a jelly baby. I heard that Tom used to walk around with a bag of them so when kids came up he could give them some.
