    With an N=1, I can say that my Unicorn had excellent QC. Having said that there were complaints on the thread of people having issues. If you have the choice I would definitely buy through Haslab for easier after sale service.

    Ah, here we go. Now that the funding reality is setting in, we'll now be seeing the constant cycle of "I have no idea how the manufacturing industry works" posts.

    This will no doubt hit 20k. I'm not worried for an astro-second.

    So when’s a likely day they’d get shipped out? December?

    Which makes sense seeing as every HasLab project has had roughly a year from funding to shipping time frame.

    I'm a Canadian too, eh. And Haslab Pulse is the best bang for your buck. Try buying it elsewhere it just gets too damn expensive. In the end, this will be your cheapest route.

    A year's time is simply the average time to clean up the steel molds and get everything prepared. So that's the minimum we should expect.

    Oh really, that long usually? I was hoping this'd be like, february next year. If it's going to be that long a wait I feel like my money might... be better spent on stuff coming out now.

    If $180 is really going to inconvenience you, then absolutely this isn't something you should be buying. But if you're still waffling after the fact, be very wary that any opportunity to get this set after will cost you ~double.

    That's been the active case with every funded project so far. We can see it in real time right now with Sentinels shipping. Though it looks like there have been some hiccups getting more of them shipped and apparently shipping on the Razor Crest is also delayed. No word yet on if HeroQuest will be shipping in November still. Though I think Unicron's time frame was closer to a year and a half? Didn't pay attention to Jabba's Barge.

    By that time, I can have saved up from getting a job or a big writing comm. Screw it, I'm rolling the dice.

    Not just HasLab. One year's time is just straight-up the average turnaround from prototype to manufactured product. Whenever we see grey model protos, there's probably a year before it hits shelves. HasTak, Bandai, 3P, it's all about the same.

    Unless paying $180 is going to seriously inconvenience you I woupd recommend you get it now if you want Victory Saber. Look at the going prices of past HasLab projects on the aftermarket. They generally go for double or more. It will never be cheaper than it is right now.

    I just thought of this. I hope this is true. If I was to move in idk June, would I still be able to change my address? God, I wish I thought of this earlier and called in… silly me.
