    It’s been moving fast but I’m not sure it’s fast enough to gain another thousand by midnight but who knows?

    It’s all relative. There’s far more playability and display options here than any recent Titan. If I had to choose between Victory Saber and The Ark, there’s no doubt my money goes to the swordsman.

    The price will only go up with time, this is pretty much the cheapest it'll ever be, though I do agree that that is pretty shiesty coding on the site

    Over 10 backers in 5 minutes, tier 3 is inevitable at this point.
    On a side note tier 4 is g1 cosmos

    It's also just a reality of living in Canada. Free shipping offers are far less feasible here due to the cost of shipping. Sure, they could absorb some of the shipping cost, but then the actual product cost would be higher. Either way, you're paying more.

    Really, that's why almost everything here costs more than in the US, relative to exchange rate. The cost of distributing goods is just more.

    I'm also worried that this becomes a pulse rabbit-hole for me. If I have Star Saber I'm going to want the eventual Deathsaurus they're going to do (because you know they're going to do one). Then the question becomes how much they start dipping into other Victory characters via Pulse since they mostly don't have western counterparts that would "justify" being parts of retail releases like most of the casts of Headmasters and Masterforce who have showed up since PWT started. Then comes Dai Atlas and whatnot.

    Let's hope

    And agreed, we could use a better one. The toys were all lacking so it'd be nice to get better individuals

    Supposedly, Deathsaurus is slated for a mainline release in 2023ish if/when Victory Saber became successful (according to leakers), kind of like how a bunch of 86 movie stuff came out this year and acts as a compliment to the Unicron from Haslab.

    I mean it took us a day and some change to burn through the 18k so I don't anticipate hitting another thousand in just. what, 3 hours? We'll hit it for sure but unless we get another 3p order dump, I wouldn't hold your breath

    I doubt every JG1 release will be through Haslab. This is most likely to test the waters and see how non Japanese fans react to Japanese figures. I believe Deathsaurus was rumoured to be retail for 2023 of this does well. You’d then be able to get him through non Pulse means.

    Ah so it’s like four and a half hours til midnight for you. Yeah there’s a definite shot of hitting it in that time frame, for sure bud! Hope so, guess waiting is all we can do now, eh?

    Well, at least I've got another 25 hours to really think about this.

    I doubt we’ll hit 20,000 in four and a half hours

    I’m happy to be proven wrong though

    I don't know guys, I really don't think there's gonna be enough Japanese interest in this thing to get to tier 3.

    Might as well pull out now.

    At the current rate I don't see that happening. Will we get there? Sure looks like it. Will it be midnight at any time zone in the contiguous US states? No. We will be close though. Maybe 19,500 to 19,700.
