    Galactus was about that number before pledged fully and then it ended over 30k

    My only disappointment is that the proportions are clearly different. Would have been nice to have that leaner look to SS. But it\'s a win all around!

    What are talking about? I'm not gate keeping at all. I'm just making an observation that she seems very aloof and dispationate during the FFF in comparsion to some of the older Hasbro and TT designers who seem very pationate about their work. This whole thing about gender is just projection, I'd have the same critque and I do have the same critque for some of the past male marketers being soul less in their presentation.
    Your putting things in my mouth that I never said. I didn't say he didn't care. As a TF designer, I think his job IS to care, I'm just saying he's akward on the camera and combine that with the soul less marketing, it leads to boring and disappointing streams.

    I don’t think he was gate keeping. I notice that some of these marketers (not just the female employees) look completely bored when they are in these livestreams.

    Dude, get Mark and Evan together and I bet you that would be an awesome stream. I feel like Mark's energy has a good chance of bringing Evan out of his shell a bit more (he absolutely gets more and more comfortable and energetic with each stream. He was quite energetic in the Chris Sabat stream), and it would just be awesome to see them bounce off each other. I know that for me personally, who's usually a bit more quite and keeps to myself like Evan seems to, I tend to open up more around people that are similar to Mark who are energetic and share interests with me.

    I'm hoping that's what they do for the upcoming Pulsecon stream, have Mark focus more on the normal Generations stuff, while having Evan talk a more about Studio Series. I think that would be fun.

    I think that would be a great pairing. Wonder why we haven't seen Mark on any streams of late, Warden was front and center when he was in charge

    Thats the dream team!
    Ya know, I was gonna ask the same thing. When he was on the Joe team he was on just about every stream doing the retro reveals, but he's been lead TF designer for what, 8 months now? and has yet to make an apperance.

    I think Mark hasn't been on stream much lately because all the streams recently have been Studio Series (86 particularly) and Star Saber focused, both of which Evan seems to be more in charge of. Mark and Lenny only really show up in the main Generations streams for the most part.

    What was his last appearance? The Ark reveal? Granted, we haven't had many Transformers streams lately, so that's probably a factor, but it's still odd (most things about the streams have been odd to me this year)

    That does make sense, hadn't considered that

    Yes! That was the last time we saw him.

    When he pulled Optimus Prime out of his beard.

    There’s an interesting difference in energy between the two. This dude seems pretty tired.

    I've been really on the fence about backing this, but this interview is pushing me towards just doing it. I'm not certain why, but he made it feel like more of a toy than a collectible, if that makes any sense.

    I do wish they would release at least one video of it's transformation before the deadline, but I know that the prototypes they have might not be able to handle all that just yet.

    I’m sure it is, just usually they try to keep that out of the videos for marketing.

    I refresh the page way too much. I don't know why. On both this one and on Unicron, there have been moments where I actually saw the number go down.

    I love HasLab products, but I hate the platform. The waiting, the fan toxicity, the second-guessing their PR department? Feels gross. These shouldn't-have-been optional accessory "stretch goals" just make it worse.

    Didn’t know Star Saber was a fembot in disguise.
