    Kinda weird that it took till after the campaign to get a 360 video of it.

    Well we technically already had 360 views. Just it was the digital render.

    As much trouble as we have with this translucent/clear plastic on the actual toys, how durable do we expect this stand to be? Immediate stress marks and cracking the first time the full figure is placed on it? Or a more gradual warping until one day the peg breaks off up VS’ backside?

    I’m hoping it’s more sturdy then the action bases I bought. And since it can hold VS in jet
    Mode it should be pretty durable.

    Exactly he was the one on YouTube talking about the only way this would hit 20k was if Hasbro “fudged the numbers? Like what difference does it make it’s successful that’s all that matters

    To be fair, we’ve only seen digital renderings of it holding the full jet, to the best of my knowledge. I’m hoping for a sturdy stand though!

    Fair enough. I just remember Unicron having one not that far into it.

    If we do get micromasters again which i hope we do then they should go back to being 4 per pack, maybe 2 autobots vs 2 decepticons, beacuse not all kids want to take the time to transform something like kingdom rodimus, and they're cute and cool and why in gods name would hasbro not finish the rest of the patrols

    I’m hoping the stand is very sturdy. That being said it wouldn’t be the end of the world for me, just very disappointing. I’m not going to worry about it until I get it in hand. Without proof of any issues there is no worth fretting over it yet, methinks.

    Assuming Victory Saber is stable enough to stand without the stand, I likely won't be using it for anything but a few photos.

    Yeah it is nice to have prototype 360’s. There was a lot weird about this campaign imo. Like I still don’t get waiting to show coloured renders. Like that couldn’t have been so hard as to show them that late. The prototype is more understandable but you’d think that the 360 view would’ve come with the picture. Obviously it all worked out in the end, but it’s still weird.

    I wouldn't be so quick to write it off. It looks to be a double-layered piece that's actually solid, which makes it much more durable than the thin plastic that would break on a normal toy for windows and the like.

    Maybe the colored renders wasn’t ready in time? Maybe they couldn’t get an accurate one until then.

    They supposedly didn't sell well? I dont blame customers tho, the quality of the ones Ive got are pretty bad, the legs tend to fall off a lot. Plus their extra weapon/combining gimmick was pretty bad as well. I would have honestly preferred it if they just kept them as vehicles/robots and improved the QC on them, I think a lot of customers would like em to interact with the different playset bots.

    Yeah but I’d imagine that the August 27 announcement date wasn’t sprung on them. You’d think that’d be a priority to have by announcement. Seems very weird. But like I said, it all worked out in the end. So who cares?
