There's no I in incom-I mean team...
The start and finish dates of the TTMall preorder window will certainly rule in and out a few theories!
The flight stand makes this in to a fantastic display piece in both modes while the shield was barely used and really only brings it up to parity with the MP.
Not to disagree exactly with your point, But then why have a crowdfunding window before takara is ready to set something up? You’d think they could easily have had that set up beforehand. Or wait till it’s ready. The timing shouldn’t be a problem…
These things always shoot up in the last few days. Galactus's backer count, what, doubled in the last 24-48 hours? There's still plenty of opportunity for this to hit all 3 tiers.
While true, some people will see it as the shield is more valuable and unique while the flight stand not as necessary because they could get one from Tamashi Nations.
While I enjoy the flight stand, the shield is definitely more fun and I can see it bringing some people over the fence.
It got around 10,000 backers in the last 24 hours while it went from 11,000 to 22,000 backers steadily over the 5 days before hand. Most likely a combination of 3P retailers' orders getting counted and people impulse buying due to FOMO...like me.
I still don't know now why they don't do this around tax time.
1) they do HasLab projects throughout the year. Are they ALL supposed to be around (US) tax time?
2) rather presumptuous to assume that most buyers get any sort of sizeable tax return, if any. I think around tax time would actually be a deterrent as people are much more money conscious at that time.
Would't it simply be a choice to have something like this be a "rare item" so it is either you want it now or you don't want it now. Thus never.
Huge tax refunds usually mean you're having too much withheld anyway.
Not everyone gets a refund at tax time
My own immediate thought when I read "I don't understand" was "and we don't always have to."
Simple Answer: If you receive a tax refund, your not doing your all year round tax basis payroll/social security deductions correctly. You should not EVER receive a refund as you should NEVER be giving the government MORE money then it claims it is entitled to. You basically GIVE the government interest free money for the year before telling them you want it back...
It's fascinating how many people act like it's a crime that a for-profit corporation wants to make money when they do a crowdfund, not gonna lie.
Yeah, this. A large refund means that's money you haven't been able to make interest on over the year while the government did.
Some of the conversations....why when it's a preorder/crowdfund do we care about business practices...lol. It's a plastic toy that they are selling....end of story..lol.
If that were the case then government would need insane amounts of people looking exactly at what you make, what you should be paying etc etc. No government is capable of that unless you want to pay even more taxes to pay the people who look over your taxes... But enjoy that rabbit hole.
I guess now we're hitting the 20k easy.
