    Wow wtf, I checked it around 3 ish and it was still sitting at 15k ish. We might actually get the shield and the Micromasters then, but I really think Tier 2 should have been the shield with the Micromasters + Jan in his mech suit then Tier 3 should have been a stand with some electronics. I’d want it to play the Victory theme and say things like “battle up” :D

    JIMINY JILLIKERS! It's actually over 17k now, less than 3000 backers to go to smash all the tiers?!
    We can but hope!

    Wait, you're not suggesting that Hasbro put in a real effort and go above and beyond to justify that £180 price tag?

    That's just crazy talk. :D

    Totally agree. It's likely AT&T decided on Patman, they made the Snyder cut happen when supposedly WB wanted to walk away just with what worked in Wonder Woman, Shazam and, er, Aquaman. Then of course the worst sorta fans believed they had power and were demanding Snyder make a comeback :oops: 

    Joker being a mega success amongst Patman's treacherous production schedules must have emboldened AT&T no end too. By complete accident you've got a multiverse. And they still obviously can't get it right.

    Hoho, I'll wait! He didn't show up in the Fall Con. or store listings so we'll just see where he lands.

    I ended up deciding to go in for it yesterday and did have a bit of a wobble when it got to shipping with yodel... Should be OK. Maybe...

    This is making me proper excited for Legacy Metroplex.

    My Megalo Convoy is off display in storage at the mo but I think I will go get him tonight.

    What do you mean, that's a 'cracking' price....


    .. Just like their plastics.

    I’m sure importers will get it cheaper.

    Makes the FT Fort Max look more reasonable, though...

    I can’t believe they’re actually doing that. I don’t know who’s crazier, Fans Toys for attempting it or the people actually planning on buying it.

    The people buying it because how do you explain that you’ve bought a toy the size of a child to your Mrs?

    Seriously give me some good reasons that I can tell the wife!

    I paid less for a complete boxed vintage set in 2015. $900.

    The best thing about Terminus Giganticus and Haslab Unicron is I realised I don't actually want massive toys. Titan Class is sort of my limit but it has to make sense for the character, I wouldn't want an Optimus Prime that size.

    The same focus groups that tell them to make comic book movies that completely change the character or origin...see Wolverine Origins, Joker and Venom.

    Good films unless you know anything about the characters they are based on

    On a separate note, ML Endgame Captain Marvel has triggered my OCD as they have given her full gloves on all the hands instead of the fingerless gloves she has in the film...time to try some flesh coloured paint matching
