    Well - until they make the counter clear & transparent, one will never know if they are just faking the totals or what & arbitrarily announcing stuff they always were gonna announce as carrots to promote backers. There is support in that belief with Unicron & all the stuff they had to add before the "goal" was reached suddenly. Pretty shady by Hasbro.


    There are those fans still awaiting a scale Ark with Teletran-1, Moon Base 1 & 2 for Cybertron, the Space Bridge or even the Decepticon Ship base. Less demanded is Chaar, where Galvatron is found post Unicron, Junkion the Planet of Junk, the Quintessons Spiral ship, the Sharkticon execution chamber court room.

    You could always look in the page source. Currently says 6399 were ordered.

    Edit: Oh, they added the number below. Don't know how I missed that.

    Welp, I'm glad I have honestly zero interest in the Sentinel.
    I am however waiting to see what's in the SDCC set and how much it will cost.

    This is completely different. They had to extend the Unicron deadline to reach their goal. They got this in a DAY. I imagine they expected way more time before they unveiled the stretch goal.

    The HasLab Sentinel as Master Mold makes more sense to me. Se folks will troop build, of course, but many folks will have just one or two. Being the largest Sentinel in some teams, he should at least have the option of being Master Mold.

    This highlights why I dislike the new thigh cut pivot point. Contrasting color to the suit's primary scheme, massive break in its flow.

    Oh wow they did go ahead and offered a Master Mold head. I gotta pick him up now! He'll look great seated and surrounded by all of the older Sentinel figures.

    You know, this was initially an easy pass for me as I have 3 of the earlier sentinels with voice effects (silver/blue, purple, and a custom purple someone painted from the silver/blue) that I kept with various 2.5” figures; and am fine with my Lewin optimus being the only bot that scales with 6” figures (plus I think the FT fort max will dwarf this, and wouldn’t know where to display both).... BUT that mastermold idea adds a new dimension of options in its flexibility to be amongst multiple scales.

    you sir, have given me pause to reconsider.

    already around 6800 backers...

    so that Master Mold head looks to be a certainty at this point...I wouldn't be shocked if it cleared 9000 well before August 1st if the remaining add-ons are this tempting...

    if you have the other Sentinels this one can be the Master and they're sort of in-scale for that (moreso to the 4" figures)...I wonder if this will start a run on the smaller ones to create such a scene...

    it would be interesting if Hasbro kept coming up with more add-on for 10,000 and beyond if this pace keeps up...

    certainly they could add another tentacle and perhaps weaponry, blast effects, etc that don't require any retooling of the figure itself...

    So Sentinel is a done deal and just gonna see what the extras will be.

    Meanwhile, I found these in a random box sitting in my storage today:

    Pretty happy about the Conan set, I wasn’t sure if I had that or not. The Unleashed figures I completely forgot those even existed and they don’t look too bad either. Probably let the kids open those.

    I have hundreds of boxes like this that I will start sharing here:
    What’s in this random box of toys?

    If you can afford it now and you want it, best to go ahead and make the purchase while you can buy it at "retail". It won't happen again.

    The Master Mold head is a game-changer for me. I may get one now.

    Smart move Hasbro! :)

    Wow, I guess I shouldn't be surprised how it already got funded, despite seeing Unicron struggle to get backed ... I guess that just proves the power of Marvel vs Transformers.
