    Maybe any extra funds could be used for filling in some of the gaps or to making sure everything is completed and on point as Unicron was missing some paint apps... thanks for some of the responses. I was just curious what could happen with a day left.

    I myself haven't backed this yet. I've made the decision tho to wait til tomorrow to do so. I'm sure 20k will be reached but I only really want this if the shield is included as I'd like to pose him with the shield. If for any reason it isn't at 20 by tomorrow then I might reconsider. I'm still on the fence, really.

    God if Hasbro was in a position where they could add to the set with Micromasters, end extra Sword or something like that or they could fix problems that don’t exist and they chose the latter I’d be annoyed. There are no hollow parts that are super bad.

    Even though I backed him on the second or third day of the campaign start, if you are not going to be happy with him without the shield, I'd recommend waiting too.

    Me either, though I am imagining the triceratops looking back with a leg up on his frill looking sheepish as he is left behind.

    The Doom head was not extra. It was always part of the initial calculus, just revealed late. The Marvel Legends team said there were always the four tiers, no more, no less.

    Star Saber only has the three tiers.

    Alright, I finally backed this project! And I got free shipping too! No backer number, but hey, carpe diem!

    (Also, PSA for the last-minute backers: they don't show you the taxes until way later. Man, I hate taxes...)

    The Triceratops is my favorite one. He's the cutest.

    Well let’s see wiseguy, the price of Rattrap core class AFTER the usual 60% retailer cut was ten bucks. A completely original mold with 10-ish uniquely pressed parts AND assembled for $4 out the door after design, molding, painting, marketing, packaging, freight, and human labor. So I’m guessing a flat shield with a paint stamp and no moving part would cost a BUCK which is probably an overestimate. By the way I have designed and ordered mass produced plastics parts for pre-assembled rapid diagnostic testing so yeah I have some knowledge.

    As Core Class guys? I wouldn't say no. ;) 

    But really, I just threw my hat into this project at 3:58PM, does that make me backer #18,725 or my contribution doesn't get noticed until later?

    I was thinking little pvc figures sold in plastic bags, tiny boxs like those little Mincraft mystery boxes, or like BotBots.

    But Core class would be cool too.
