    I mean to pay back, my parents don’t let me loan but they buy haslabs with me and buy 2-4 and keep 1, they make a profit, I get a collectible that’s how I explain it to them but they don’t do it for every single fig

    I'd say faster than that. He seems to be farther along in development than Perceptor, who had a wait period of about 9 months. So I'm thinking maybe summer, fall at the latest.

    o_O  That's going from asking to do a loan for 1 to asking them to loan over $700. Some parents might do that, most would just laugh becuase that is a ludicrous request.

    C'mooon, Hasbro, we bust your barrier so the least you could do is throw us the bone of an SS'86 Wheelie/Daniel-style chicken-walker mode Illumina II to represent Jan!

    If you're hitting your parents up for cash to try and sell Sabers at a mark-up down the road you owe them a cut of the profit because at that point why should they give *you* the money and not just buy 4 to sell themselves?

    Your profile says you are 20. This is very awkward.

    And with Saber, this isn't something where they're buying up stock and stopping others from getting it. If nobody buys now they're not getting made. Ever.

    Anyone expecting someone to put money down *now* on the off chance you may be able to afford it later is taking a risk and as such can charge whatever the market will bear later. Especially since if they charge *less* it's more likely someone will buy it from them then turn around and sell it for more themselves.

    You can't scalp something like this.

    Thank you for showing that man that parents are not banks who can take out unlimited loans when their child isn't even finished with middle school!

    Fake age. I didn’t know you could be young on the boards
    EDIT: as In I am a teen but just didn’t know how old you needed to be


    Should of clarified, 3 get bought, one is me, 2 are my parents, parents sell one, I sell one, then I buy their one for the original price, this means they can’t lose only I can, and it ends out good for both of us, they’re still my parents they’re not gonna dog me like that lol

    The shield is neat but I'm actually more stoked for the cartoon colors Holi, or as I affectionately like to call "Fixit".

    I enjoy how the value of this (as with most crowdfunded stuff) just got better with each tier. Like, it was a nice enough figure set to begin with, but the addition of all the extras just elevates it to a more impressive, cohesive display piece.

    1. You have to be old enough to understand how social media works. So 11 is about the minimum.

    2. sir I do not run a business but is not as easy as it sounds. Your parents are also likely upper class, I do not have that luxury.

    I have nothing BUT disrespect for sub-teenage target audience-viewer POV protagonist child characters in general! :lol 
    Plus a healthy skepticism to exactly how much more "generous" Hasbro might be with the set.

    In 3 words, just the facts. An abridged version without all the opinions, wish lists, fighting, tangents, etc. Those are fine but not when the deadline looms (yeah I should have been keeping up, but did check in a few times and nothing much was new. Thought for sure there would be at least a couple options outside Haslab. Apparently Dorkside isn't buying. Possibly nor BBTS. Robot Kingdom isn't offering to US / CA so is Hasbro the only option outside eBay?

    A list of what pages for the relevant details and size comparisons, when the new tiers were dropped, etc.

    So basically...info you need in making last day decisions. Pretty sure I'm getting at least one but was gonna put a deposit down on a second or third (again all depending). Any updates like this would help a lot. Thanks

    I want a "I Am Not Star Saber" comic book where a teenage Jan turns his back on his Autobot friends.
