    My wish for the holiday is to get my preorder deposit back for this lost cause.

    Maybe the goal all along was to bring us together in this thread to create our own Core star! Out of mutual community respect and text based positivity! Who's to say we don't have a Corestar?!

    [insert photo of core star in a manger].

    I kind of understand some concern with this figure based on the circumstance, but there really hasn’t been any reason that I know of to suspect this isn’t happening. Silence is pretty much the standard until they have something new to show, and they've already shown a hand painted prototype so the only thing left is a final painted version so... maybe give them some time to make one of the largest and most intricately (and better) designed figures ever?
    But are you having trouble requesting your deposit from the seller you bought from?

    It will appear!!

    Yep the real Core Star was the friendship and camaraderie that we made all along.

    It would be an awesome Christmas miracle if they were to announce that they are going to release it in January 2020! Fingers crossed!!

    That's a stupidly ambitious timeline, even without the potential shelving of this project.

    You could have said the same thing without the S word. Someone's not in the Christmas spirit...

    I just really want this to come out. I don't want my deposit back and won't ask for it back, I want them to take my money for a core star christmas miracle. Core star regardless if it comes out or not, really is pretty cool and worth a small lost investment if it does disappear.

    To be fair, this isn't your typical "3p announces something and then doesn't give you updates for years", they actively removed every mention of this project from their social media. I don't remember similar cases in the recent past.

    It's cause they were getting bothered by Hasboro when they were trying to sell their Unicron kickstarter. This will likely reappear again when the heat dies down

    I wish they'd released actual painted shots of him. I know we have Digi bashes but I was really interested to see what they did with his colors in planet mode.

    Supposed to be 18” I believe, so shorter than their combiners. Main reason I bought haslab’s was size. Still, even with zetas being smaller I hope it comes back, cause it looked like it would be fun to mess with.
