    Often times with these shows, vendors hold stuff for the "big reveal" on the final day. ZETA said they would show it at the show beginning on the 10th. Not actually THE 10th. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt for now and we shall see what they do tomorrow. If they don't show, then they are just big ass Haslab trolling.

    I think the teaser said “8-10”. Maybe they’re using the backwards date like they do in Asia and it’s October 8th?

    Zeta put a comment in their Weibo that this was going to revealed at the August Show. But They never confirmed it was this one. I think may people assumed it was this one. Does anyone know if there are any other show's this month?

    From what I've read its the only show in august.....

    So If it's not seen tonight, then They lied to us, and we were all bamboozled.

    (crossing fingers it'll be there tonight)

    If so then I've lost a bit of respect for Zeta.

    i am still excited to see this tonight if they do it. but if it doesnt happen today than that makes my decision easier. since i know hasbro will be made if the backers show up.

    could be TFNation next weekend is what they are talking about, there are a few different shows in August. not going to be able to buy it yet anyway, patience people, it's not like it will effect your life one way or another if they do or don't show it.

    They're definitely not the same, the arm's shape is different, the head has a different sculpt, etc.

    This was supposed to be revealed.

    I wonder if it just wasn't ready yet.

    ok, 8-10, so do we know this is month-day-year or day-month-year? we also see a vague mention of August in a different post but no mention of the specific date, also was the 8-10 from an official post or was it a someone saw it somewhere kind of thing? I haven't been in this hobby that long and on this site even less but I've already seen how "information" isn't always what it appears to be.

    8-10 is probably either today, August tenth or a time like:
    8am-10am
    8am-10pm
    8pm-10am
    8pm-10pm

    Just curious, are people hoping this will take customers away from the Hasbro version? Ie. do people not want the Hasbro figure to be made?

    I have no intention of buying the Hasbro one myself, but I have nothing against it existing, haha. So just wondering what people think about Zeta potentially revealing this now to deliberately undercut Hasbro.

    I bought a couple dozen of the Haslab to scalp on the after market. I don't want Zeta messing that up. I relay rumors of Haslab failing so more people will back it just to be contrarian, which they love more than the figure itself.

    I honestly like the head sculpt better on this guy vs HasLab. Gotta have the beard.

    But if Zeta is just p!$$ing in the wind...

    :eek:  :oops:

    Wow, didn’t notice it but the Hasbro version isn’t very faithful to the original, is it. And the fu Manchu mustache just looks weird once you actually look for it.
    Putting the two next to each other is like night and day too.
    And another indicator of how big the zeta version isn’t, given the relative lack of detail. But to be fair, Hasbro is super greebly of late.

    to be fair there were plenty of times in the movie where the beard was gone, so either way is correct at this point.
