    Nah, at least I can read that. The green makes my eyes water and I had to highlight it to read it.

    Hmm maybe I’m biased towards the green but the yellow is just the worst imo.

    It basically was, it was a preorder through the TT Mall. It even had a stretch goal, which it didn't make. It needed 3000 preorders for it to come with an additional pretender suit. The biggest difference between Grand Max and any Haslab so far is that it wasn't a new mold, everyone knew we were getting the Fort Max mold in a different deco, basically.

    I don't remember exactly how many orders they got but I think it was in the neighborhood of 2500.

    Edit: Scanning old news posts on the internet seems to imply the total number was never made public, just that we know it must be >1999 (since it was made) and <3000 (since the stretch goal wasn't reached).

    I wonder whether if Victory Saber and Black Zarak do well Hasbro might consider a release of Grand.

    So, if it doesn't reach the stretch goals, what happens then? Do they just ditch those items and you gotta rely on some 3P?
    Do they make them some weird Gen Selects thing, where you gotta buy a neon repaint of Wingfinger that includes the shield and stand as accessories?

    If Hasbro doesn't cheat to get the accessories to us, which I only slightly doubt they will, yes. Because it doesn't fit in their budget to produce. I won't miss any of the accessories except the V-lock cannon. The rest are just accessories

    I work for a large Japan-based electronics company, and we have taken millions of dollars worth of preorders each year, and There is nothing against the law as long as we meet Our contractual obligations.

    That’s the whole thought process behind the them is if it doesn’t hit those goals then we don’t get them. So with that thought process no we wouldn’t get them. Doesn’t mean Hasbro could never do them separately but safe bet is no we wouldn’t get them. I personally just want the v lock cannon. That’s the only one where’s if it didn’t hit that goal I would buy from a third party. The shield and stand are cool but I could go without them

    Is this up for pre-order in Japan? Victory Saber's home country should be able to shoot these preorders up, no?

    i'd say some 3p company will have us covered on any missing accessories we didn't get.

    The three comments I expect to see everyday:
    1. Is it up in Japan?
    2. I don't think this will be produced
    3. People pretending they know better than one of the most profitable toy companies in the world.

    Don't forget complaining that we didn't get a stretch goal of a brand new mold for no extra cost

    Yeah I see people talking about a Holli and Jan figure but considering Hasbro they could easily be on par with Grimlock’s Wheelie. And that would likely just cause another whole round of bitching. o_O
