    We got the Stunticons coming. Who knows it might do well and open more opportunities. I'd love to see them flesh out each character.

    Even "though wishful thinking " revisit the constructions.

    True it was fun. But I can't blame people for wanting the maximum number of items out of their investment. And on top of it mark this figure as a success. That JG1 sells outside of Japan. And Hasbro becomes more willing to bring other characters of the line.

    Optimalprimal Diecast construction. It's a lost art.

    We will get the constructicons again at some point. Just too popular. However, I don't see it happening in Legacy. However, they make a lot of sense when Studio Series needs a sales lift in the next few years. Hasbro has already learned that a bunch of Voyager and Leader Constucticons are a great sales gimmick to tent pole the line for a year.

    Iirc Takara Tomy stops about 13 hours before pulse stops so I’d imagine those orders will be added tomorrow. I think that they’ll be enough to push it over the 20 000 mark.

    There was one other big win in POTP: Predaking
    He’s widely regarded as the best hastak combiner released to date.

    It will. Final 24 hours or so will likely be as a fully funded project for one last draw.

    I bet they'll give Hasbro a rough number they're confident in before that. Because it'll help them as much as Hasbro when this hits the final goal and FOMO really kicks in.

    Can’t wait to see the next version. The titan version was pretty damn nice, so I’d love to see what 8-10 yrs advancement of new tech would do to them.

    Widely does not necessarily mean unanimously.

    *Addendum* - Having recently acquired him, it’s entirely possible I’ve simply spent too much time in the POTP Predaking Appreciation thread and I’ve been unduly influenced. I’m not an authority and can’t speak for everyone, so others’ mileage may vary.

    There is no way this doesn't hit 19K before the end of the night.

    Yeah seems like it's gonna hit in about a half hour or less. It's picking up speed.

    On the contrary, I consider the POTP Predacons to be the worst combiners.

    Sure, the combined form looks nice, but the individuals aren't great, and the thighs hanging off the back of Tantrum and Headstrong are just unforgivable for me. And the whole thing is just too big. I'm so glad that Hasbro has made a concerted effort the last few years to break the connection of price point and size.

    Give me a choice between the Predacons and the Stunticons and I'll take the Stunticons, as crap as they are.

    I said “combiner”, not “combiner team”. Meant the actual combined mode, but I could’ve definitely been clearer and I DO agree with you that the backpacks (fanny packs in animal mode?) are pretty damn offensive to the eyes. Combined mode is pretty impressive though. Makes me smile every time I look at it.
