didn't get an email either.
So, whataya'll think, did the final # include TT Mall or not?
Who knows? Maybe the numbers we were counting yesterday were international orders and just didn't arrive as a bulk drop.
So we can expect this guy to ship and be in our hands by like, what… November?
I only got an email because they couldn't process payment.
I think it will work like when you preorder something from pulse.
God no. There wasnt any significant spike in numbers after TTM closed up their orders and, to my knowledge, they didnt go through pulse like UK orders did
I don't think they have been counted yet due to the holiday weekend. The last sudden jump in numbers was Friday and the rest after that was a steady stream of backers. Plus this is a weird holiday where some people have it off and others don’t. My sister and I work for the same exact company in different departments but she has today off while I don’t.
Well I woke up today happy that it was funded...and $600 poorer for it lol
It's kinda funny if you think about it from a certain perspective. We basically crowd funded a G1 Optimus Prime in the form of Victory Leo
Spoilers for the Japanese G1 cartoon continulty
Optimus Prime dies in the third episode of Headmasters, giving his life up to stabilize Vector Sigma. It is established in Masterforce that Ginrai's transtector, which looks identical to Optimus Prime, was mean't to be a new body for Optimus. But due to a series of events, the transtector is used by Ginrai instead. His transtector eventually gains sentience at the end of Masterforce, and becomes his own character becoming Ginrai. Ginrai becomes a recurring character in Victory, where he almost dies and returns as Victory Leo. Hence the G1 Optimus Prime connection.
I will never understand their logic and reasoning when Leo looks nothing like Ginrai
In the anime Ginrai becomes Victory Leo, but in the Victory manga he is a separate character.
And Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge barely resemble their original forms if at all (Scourge isn't a jet and looks like a vampire dude, depending on who you think became Cyclonus makes him either barely resemble, or not resemble in the slightest, and Galvatron's only connection to Megatron is that he has an arm gun).
Leo is Ginrai rebuilt and reformatted into a new character in the same way as Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus. Assumedly they even fused him with God Bomber permanently and that's why he fills a similar role as God Bomber for Star Saber, which would probably help make Leo look different to Ginrai.
We should crowdfund a time machine!
In all seriousness, I think that the people who find blue text useful are far more numerous than those who are annoyed at it.
Yeah, no email or anything but I was sure as hell charged.
Yeah absutely no idea why not even our leading online store didn't jump on that but its not the first time we actually had all nintendo products done through a third party til late 2000s
Blue text is kinda like an internet laugh track. It points out that you're joking so as to ease an audience into laughing. I'm not irritated by it, just feel it lessens a good bit at times.
Oh, and I was definitely charged for Victory Saber. Things I'm hoping for:
full paint (I understand this one might be unreasonable)
A fix to some of the gaps (same as above)
A more refined headsculpt
I can live without everything but the ratchets. This thing won't stay standing for long without them.
You really think distribution was so bad they need to include Ratchet with Victory Saber? Did I miss a tier 4?
