    If we can hit 4800 with just us and uk then i think the 1st 2 tier unlocks are within reach. And this is within the first 3 days? Lets keep it going!

    I think if CAN/US/UK can hit at least 8 500 backers via pulse, then all three are in reach!!!

    Cheers for the quote and dub inserts :) 
    When I bought the dvds back in 2008 I couldn’t stand the sun from the 1st episode and so never watched much in the Eng dub to see those ;p

    Yes, a Dinoking should come with the dino pretender shells and maybe we can get Monstructor from this.

    We are at 4,935 backers man we are so close to 5,000 backers. If they open up to Japan it will definitely sky rocket.

    Folks, the only day that matters with regards to Haslab's Victory Saber is 11:59 PM EST on 10/10/2021. There are two outcomes, it will get funded or it won't. A high probability it will be the former. Follow the KISS rule and a lot of things will be alright. :thumb

    Unicron's maw in the prototype was shown to be orange, but in the finished figure, it was grey, which made his planet mode look weird. It was probably due to a mistake on plastic fill in the factory.

    It's not a big deal at all. You can fix it with Toyhax stickers, a paint marker, or one of several 3D printed coverings. Should it have been done right? Yeah of course. is it a deal breaker? Nobody's life is that small. It's a minor irritation. Unicron is still amazing.

    But because we live in a society where grown ass men no longer feel inhibition or shame for acting like children, and performative outrage is normalized, we get things like this instead.

    Honestly, some folks need a new hobby.

    This is why I'm entirely disinterested in everything posed in these thread about reach goals and gap fillers. It exists in this mickey mouse version of the Transformers marketplace, rather than the real one.

    Of COURSE there is going to be a 3P v lock, a flight stand, his shield, some guns and a host of other accessories. You can add probably bigger wings for a more "anime look" too. As for gap filler, you will have at least 3 choices: a injection molded set from a 3p company, an unnamed Chinese 3d printed option, or a better higher quality "known" 3d printed option.

    All in all, probably run you another $50. To which people say "why do I have to spend $50 to improve my $180 figure". Which is hilarious because it's the same line folks have been saying about Transformers figures for the past 10 years. And the answer is always the same: you don't have to spend anything, but the option is there for people who want to.

    I would laugh if they decided to change the whole color scheme after it gets revealed

    No matter what I want Star Saber and already backed it. However, I would be disappointed if we didn’t get the V Lock Cannon and a shield with it.

    Yes, that's the plan: get 11,000+ backers and then reveal it's a G2 color scheme so bright neon you can see it from 1/4 mile away.

    It's going to have the traditional VS colors dude. The only "issues" will potentially be in some minor detail work in a few odd places.

    I understand that micromasters didn't do so well in WFC, but I don't know what else can go with this Haslab.

    I expect the tiers to be more "conservative" along the lines of accessories/blast effects, maybe an additional brainmaster or so.

    I think we can discard the figures-as-tiers concept for Transformers because the heralds are as intrinsic to Galactus as Saber is to Star Saber; individual figures were always going to take primacy as stretch goals for Galactus over effects parts or accessories for Galactus himself.

    I think it's safe to say the converse for Star Saber, since everything intrinsic to Victory Saber is already included at the base price, and the most obvious omission for the total package is the v-lock cannon, which is tier 1.

    I know Marvel and TF fandoms aren't the same thing, but watching how Galactus played out...I don't see a scenario in which Saber isn't funded. Stretch goals are totally different as that'll likely depend on what's offered, but Galactus went from 11k on Wednesday night to 17k on Thursday morning to 22k on Sunday to 32 thousand on Monday. And of that 32k, nearly 4k came in the final hour.

    That means they nearly tripled their backer total in the final 4 days of the project, and Galactus is now the single most successful campaign in terms of units produced.

    I think HasLab has come a long way since Unicron, and we're going to see some surprising numbers once the international partners start submitting their numbers. So that 20k final tier for Saber feels like a long ways to go, but come that final week we could see some absurd movement.

    I think we'll hit the Cannon no problem. And I think a shield/flight stand is going to be in the tier list. Very similar to what we saw with the Razor Crest.

    My guess is the shield/stand would be the *second* tier since that'll likely be a big draw. You want something to display your big wooshy space ship on. That final tier being nearly double the total backer goal has me very curious. My thought is that would be where we could see something like an extra figure. I'm just not familiar enough with Victory to know who you could offer that wouldn't be viable at retail/selects.
