    Think maybe we’ll see another spike tonight if other international orders are added but if not I feel like we’ll for sure see enough orders to get us to tier 3 tomorrow.


    I’m not going to get to hopeful about a surprise tier four but if all three tiers are hit with 24 hours+ remaining I could see them doing a bonus one that gets unlocked at 22 or 23 000. I’d hope it’d either be sword for Saber or other (applicable) micromaster repaints.

    DeathCobra would be an awesome add on deluxe tier. Doubtful though.

    Really? We're really still doing that, at this point?

    I'm going to quote myself from a couple of weeks back. The relevant part is the last paragraph, which I am bolding:

    I think that Hasbro and Takara were confident right from the very start that they could get 20,000 sales of this via Haslab (but of course could not sell it through ordinary retail channels, because it doesn't fit what retailers are willing to take). This is why all three tier bonuses are the boring shoulda-been-in-the-basic-package entirely predictable items that they are (to be clear, I have no issue with what they are, and don't care about getting anything more).

    And I think they were right. We can see that the basic 11,000 sales target will be met with ease (and at this point already has been, or does anyone really think that there aren't 2000 sales from EB, Zavvi, RobotKingdom, and so on?). That just leaves the 20,000 target. Which will be met when Takara (who damned well know their own damned market, damn it) opens a short pre-order window (I'm thinking 10 to 14 days maximum, following, as people have noted, the release of the next issue of Figure King, which should be quite soon), at which point the Japanese fans easily buy 9-10,000-odd of the things.

    And then we've got the bizarre but mathematically indisputable last-minute crowd-funding surge behaviour (even though this is not crowd-funding, but simple pre-production-ordering) for another big chunk of sales (and hey, it makes no sense at all to me to wait like that, but I'll be damned if I can be bothered arguing with something so easily demonstrated from the past decade of crowd-funding activity).

    People were upset because after the campaign it was radio silence for like 6 months then they showed the box and said shipping would start aug. Which was only slightly delayed.
