    No idea if anyone from Hasbro Pulse is reading this, but my god Pulse emails always look like spam
    The one for these colour pics of Star Saber was titled "cool images of me inside [​IMG]"

    Super unprofessional-looking, nearly labelled as spam

    Anyone else logged into the main page and thought Vegeta being on the Victory Saber update headline meant we were going to have a Dragonball X Transformers collab toy?

    It's still possible. Evan had mentioned they were working on setting up the sword so it could be both animation and toy accurate.

    So they could still work that out as well.

    It looks awesome in colour and now the shield is confirmed, I'm pretty excited for it! Hopefully the backers start picking up.

    Obviously it wouldn't be super accurate, but it would be cool to see the Deco.

    I didn't know what to think, it's such a random marketing gimmick
    I still have no idea why Christopher Sabat is their celebrity of choice. There's not a single Transformers show on his IMDB page.

    Shield, stand, and gun should be included in base price. I'm skipping this, but happy for those who are getting it. Those strech goals are more like fantasy goals. Good luck my dudes.

    Yeah, outside of the one who shall not be named, all other Haslabs have doubled their final goals in the last 3 days.

    With 18 days left to reach 11,000 (just under 2,000 needed), you think getting to 14,000 is a fantasy? I can't say that I agree. I'm not sure how attainable the 17,000 and 20,000 stretch goals are, but 14,000 is doable with international orders for sure. I mean, I'd be willing to bet with international orders that we have already hit 11,000.

    Apparently no one was listening to his podcast - Sabat said he was a fan of anime - that Transformers & specifically Victory is an anime & he was a child with Transformers. He is a fan of the franchise from his childhood, centered in a different segment of a field that is of Japanese culture. He was a perfect choice to reach out into a different segment of the marketplace & churn up interest from people who would not normally have ever paid attention to Transformers - to be suddenly inspired with a new purchase, this being a Japanese product, that influences other potential buyers.

    Basically - you wanna sell toys - you reach out into the toy market, not just into your own market, to maximize your potential dollars. Marketing 102 - not something Hasbro is known for but, maybe they are slowly learning.

    expected it and is still happy about it . somehow very underwhelming, somehow that shield looks more underwhelming than the stand. Wonder if there is a tier 4 reward. This is probably going to hit all tiers anyway. Whether that be fake numbers pump by hasbro, international order flocked, third party buying up stock to resell later on, or the general public jumping in once its funded and tiers get unlocked.

    Seeing the stand in colour, now I'm hyped for that too. I ended up getting a second one as a gift for a friend. Damn, he looks beautiful in colour.

    I do wonder if the choice to have a well-known anime dubbing voice actor on means anything, but based on the stream I doubt it.

    Oh great, so all the stretch goals are things that would cost Hasbro nickels and dimes, and complete the figures. Bra-fucking-vo. Such great treatment of customers. Jesus Christ, this is just a slap in then face.

    cry me a damn river lol. It’s truly never enough for people like you. This stuff doesn’t cost us anything else either as a customers. We hit all the tiers it’s the same to us either way. Tell me what you would do differently?
