    You underestimate the power of Japanese collectors

    Crafting up new conspiracies to explain why they're right and Hasbro probably bought the extras themselves and something about how they could totally make a new voyager tier 4 because "they're a billion dollar corporation" as if they GOT that rich by doing expensive moves like that

    This thing picked up about 4k in it's first day. So it's entirely possible Takara opened theirs and also got swamped.

    Regardless, it's happening. Everybody take 5 for lunch and regroup to celebrate this afternoon after we've preordered the latest Golden Disc set.

    Sweet looks like the TakaraTomy numbers just hit, and should rise steadyly for a bit as more Japanese fans jump in. Do we know if this opened in China yet? That should be the next boost.

    These are pretty unlikely to be Takara orders

    Aw heck yes.
    Now I'm hoping we hit the shield. Now that I've seen it's going to be harder to accept not getting it :lol

    It's funny how when Unicron had no stretch goals, I thought last-minute backers were the biggest idiots ever, but now with stretch goals on Victory Saber, I'm like "Yeah, I understand that perspective. Maybe wait and see what you're definitely getting before deciding. That makes sense."

    Oh these are definitely NOT the TakaraTomy numbers. They just opened preorders yesterday, so we can expect those numbers to be added when the funding period closes.

    500 around the time after the color images. Then the pace increased for the weekend naturally

    I think there was a lot of "should I shoudn't I?" hesitation and lots of people spending every hour getting together every last penny for the not-insignificant price tag.

    Nah Crazy, this ain't funded. This is clearly someone artificially boosting the numbers and lying to the public to make the fomo crowd jump on

    And why can't they be added live? As you said, they opened yesterday. That's just over 12 hours for Japanese fans to order. Didnt a $1,500 Gundam sell out in the first hours?
