    And I won't buy it. But if Zeta upsizes theirs to 24 inch, that I'd buy.

    I would love to see this come to fruition. Hope this silence is the quite before the storm.

    I'm trying to be okay if this silence turns out to be the silence before the silence.

    When does the refund period end for haslab’s? Was it November 6? I have a strong feeling we’ll see something after that.

    The crowdfunding period ended 6th October, but I think the 30 day period relates to payment, though I could easily be wrong. I backed via Kapow because I'm in the UK, so it really needs a HasLab backer to confirm it.

    If I am right though, I believe payments were taken midweek after the crowdfunding ended (again a HasLab backer to confirm it is best), so you're looking maybe the 9th? 30 days from then is 8th November.

    Hey, at least my thoughts are the worst case scenario. You're looking at 6th to 9th November, so expect something sometime after that point

    There used to be a button on the Has Lab page to cancel but it's gone on mine. They ran my card I think 2 days after the deadline so if that helps, it seems locked in now.

    What he's talking about though is that Haslab gave a 30 window after the funding period closed in which you could cancel the order either through their customer service or your credit card. It basically fits with a lemon law-type process. After the 30 days if you try to cancel your credit card or bank funding, they will likely pursue legal action to get you to stop.

    "What he's talking about though is that Haslab gave a 30 day window DURING the funding period in which you SHOULD NOT RELEASE A 3RD PARTY UNICRON. It basically fits with a "NO SHIT, SHERLOCK" WAY OF THINKING. After the 30 days if you try to RELEASE your 3RD PARTY UNICRON, they will likely NOT pursue legal action to get you to stop."

    Just saying, lol!

    I personally lost hope on this one ever seeying release (though I wasn't even interested on Core Star to begin with). A lot of 3Ps carry on even when a project is scrapped/cancelled/put down

    We should probably just assume this IS cancelled until we hear otherwise.

    there is no way this thing is canceled. it was too much of a success to just be canceled and lost in the shadows forever. it will be back it has only been like 2 months.

    even with extremely conservative numbers this bot clears almost half a mil easily. that is just too much to get left on the table. this one is definitely coming.

    Well, I guess we can hope that they've taken this time spent in the shadows to do some redesigning. Ideally making the outer ring bigger and/or make the maw not look like crap.
