    I mean I can kinda see the similarity of "robotic lionish thing being boxed up for a flight mode" but yeah no no resused parts

    With the knowledge of the shield, I'm hoping it does reach the final stretch goal.
    I don't have any doubts it'll get funded, but I'm just afraid that it won't reach the necessary amount for all 3 items.

    Basically this, more or less. The bonuses aren't "freebies" they are worked into the $180 but only become feasible to produce when the economics of scale reaches a certain point based on the number of backers. Basically, the price to produce the base Victory Saber figure goes down enough with each tier reached (amount of backers) that they can add in something extra for the original production cost.

    Always fun to pose with extra accessories! But def. one of the things I care least about. That seems like a real stretch (hah) that we'll hit the final tier, IMO. But it's possible!

    They're wrong but I guess this is where they got that idea without ever actually looking at the two figures

    I think it’s more likely they are considered as part of the budget already, and are simply removed to account for lost profit if the tiers aren’t met.

    functionally they are freebies to the end user because you are paying the same regardless of if they get included

    yeah, a combination of the two ways, for sure. I think that's just arguing the two sides of a similar coin.

    Regardless, the tiers aren't "free" bonus items. They've been accounted for all along as part of the $180 we're paying.

    For me the shield is a more interesting stretch goal than the stand (and I was really hoping that was Tier 2, because I'm not sure we'll be hitting Tier 3).

    That said, the only stretch goal that I'll be sad if we don't get is the V-Lock Rifle.

    I think there were some fans waiting for the colored photos. And now, here they are.

    Wow, wasn't expecting the stand to be in color.

    I want! Do you think we will make it to that tier at least?
