    You’re not going to make people dive for seventeen thousand for a fucking stand. Part of stretch goals are to give excitement and build hype. Locking off a weapon that should come with the figure and a half-assed stand are pretty much slaps in the face and is the equivalent of locking in game content on a disc behind a pay wall, except this wall has to be unlocked by everyone being gullible enough to try to push for double the initial goal. It’s insulting.

    Psst: School's/School has

    :p 



    You really think a one-time-use shield or a repainted Micromaster would do that, either?

    A sturdy display stand is a pretty decent enhancement to the overall package, IMO, giving you much more dynamic and sturdy display options.

    I think the big ass Victory logo molded into the base would do that as well.
    Yes but that stand only worked for vehicle mode. This stand works in robot mode and you still have the shield to use as an actual accessory to pose him with on it

    It is potentially a nicer stand than what's usually included with figures nowadays.

    Well you can buy ones that are shitty to use with large and/or heavier figures like Transformers for cheap at least.

    Why do I think the only reason he's not penniless is because he's somehow never gotten a Nigerian bank email?

    If you're legitimately insulted because Hasbro is going to include a themed display stand with a toy if enough people pre-order, I think you need to take a look at your priorities. This is a free bonus being added to a figure. Are you actually ordering Star Saber? If so, were you insulted by the lack of stand before today, or are you only upset now because whatever you came up with in your own mind is more exciting to you than what Hasbro revealed?

    I gotta say, at this point I would like tier three to impress me a little. That said, how are y'all helping spread the word?

    Seriously? Why would anyone hate people who buy everything up at your local store just to resell it at 400% markup on ebay? Sure, they are just toys, but the entire practice is so distasteful that there's laws against doing for most goods during/after emergency situations.
