Haslab - Marvel Legends Possibilities

My issue is that I don't have the room for something that massive.  My entire office is plastered with wall to wall shelves with Marvel Legends and Black Series figures.  A few years ago I was in Toys R Us and they had that huge Tie-Fighter for $25 and I passed.  My wife is pretty laid back about all the stuff I get, but she would be pissed if I spent $500 on a toy and there is no way I could easily justify that kind of money on one item.  I would be open to vehicles like a Snow Speeder or Blackbird, but no way on a huge Daily Bugle or X-Men mansion.  

My biggest concern with haslab is that they will give us more realistically scaled things like snow speeder or blackbird, but will still have that steep price, just because that’s the status quo of the lab now

I don’t disagree with you there.  I feel like they started too big.  Why not start with a $100-$200 project that would never sell at retail in order to get more hardcore collectors on board?  I’ll never spend $300+ haslab money on a toy ever.  Period.  It’s a hobby that I love but anything more than that is absurd 

Yeah HasLab is a joke, look at Unicron the price and timeframe is stupid. Also it gives a big middle finger up at international fans.

I definitely can’t see myself spending a couple of hundred $ on one time unless there is a dry spell of Legends for 4-6 months so I can justify it.  My max price point is probably around $150ish and even then it would have to be spectacular.  I agree with you that it would most likely be a very steep price.

Good to know I’m not alone

Yeah the timeline is insane.  They need to have all the backers in like 3 weeks, but are going to take 2 years to finish it 

It's about 6 weeks to raise over $4.5 million thanks to a ridiculous  one-off payment. Also if you are international you can now participate but with a crippling mark-up

Yeah the one off is weird.  I get it, you want to make sure people don’t make a payment and then instantly drop it, but who in their right mind would waste money?

Unless they state that the payment wasn't refundable, people could easily change thier minds

I have a similar cut-off point, but as I tightly budget everything, I generally need a few weeks to juggle the old finances to get it together. And as you said, dropping it all at once, it has to be something WAY impressive. For instance, I pulled the trigger on the A-Force set and never batted an eye.

Once I getup into the multiple hundreds, though, it becomes a matter of "If i Have that Kind of Money, I'll find Something Better to Do with It."

Example: When I was 22, I bought a Camaro from a friend of my brother-in-law for 500 bucks even. Hasbro asks more that for their Sail-Barge and I have to laugh.

Well that’s one hell of a deal for a Camaro!

 

and I agree.  It’s not really how much you’re getting comparing it to the price.  Like if you got a hot Toys batmobile and they ask $600+ dollars, you’re getting what you pay for.  The problem is, is it really worth the price for a toy?  It all depends on who you are
