    Oh they can afford it already, that's not an issue. This is a matter of profitability.

    Then the minimum needed backers would have been 20,000 and not 11,000

    Enough with Clipper folks! Pipo and Boater. Clipper could be Tier 5 with Jan on hoverdisc

    At least a year based on the other HasLabs. It is also possible for this to get delayed if something happens during production like with Unicron and recently with the Razor Crest.

    Yeah, at this point I'm getting more than I wanted out of this campaign. So if we fall just short of tier 3 I won't be too upset.

    But, I hope we do pass that goal mostly just so that this campaign can be an absolute success in every way!

    I figured the obvious implication of the idea was that they'd sell the extras for full-price, either on Pulse or to retailers. It's not like they'd have any trouble selling them, there will be tons of FOMO buyers willing to pay any price they have to if Unicron is anything to go by.

    Saw 2000 backers added instantly. Was that all the international preordered added to the tally? I hope not. We still have a ways to go for the last stretch goal with only 2 days left and I was hoping the international preorders would put us over the top.

    I think it was just Taiwan at the moment, expect more on Sunday it seems when Takara closes their orders and adds them later

    tiers are dumb, i don't understand why a pledge campaign would offer more if more people pledge, they should just promise everything up front and then have nothing on-hand for the next 45 days to get people's attention

    Whew. Thank you good sir for sacrificing yourself for everyone's benefit. The goods of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one. The one specifically being you sir. Live long and prosper... with your 2,000 Victory Sabers. For 360K you're sacrificing a nice house.

    lmao no that's not how Haslab or businesses works

    More people pledging more more profit margins, which means they can increase the budget

    jesus christ does nobody understand basic math

    Judging by what the Haslab Unicron is going for these days, that could be a good investment!

    So, let's hope that was just the Hasbro Taiwan dump, and hope that the TTM one will be like Randy Marsh after eating at 'PF Changs'.

    What a change an hour can make.

    ...Should I tempt it? ...Okay, here goes. "I'm hoping we get the 3rd Tier."
