Is that it? Their big reveal was another one their HasScam toys!?! That's it, between this and the G.I.Joe SNAFU, I'm through with Mattelbro until they start actually putting stuff in stores again. Then I'll pay attention to their narcissistic ramblings . . . provided they remember which side their bread is buttered on.

I mean, this is a HUGE reveal, figuratively and literally, even if it's not your cup of tea. I don't know why you think HasLab is a scam- I backed the Star Wars Sail Barge, and it is absolutely amazing- one of the coolest things in my collection. It's a good way for us to get things that just wouldn't be made otherwise.

Excellent points from both, and I can see both sides. I would say that any helmet on a suit of armor like Iron Man's would have to be bigger than the wearer's head; adding the armor itself, not to men

OK, seeya.

You know what REALLY means nothing?  Your whining in this thread. Feel free to find a thread talking about something you like and care about, whether on this forum or another.  I'm sorry that the

I’m not sure how I feel about this.  Compared to the Transformers Earthrise Scorponok, this doesnt feel like a good value.

Scorponok is 23 inches tall, can become a robot, scorpion, and a base, plus includes a headmaster and a deluxe class sized headmaster. All at $160.

Sentinel is 26 inches tall with lights, a tentacle, a 6 inch figure, and a swappable head. All for $350.

I realize it’s not exactly a good comparison. Scorponok is mass produced with a larger buying base. The Sentinel is a specialty item with a presumably smaller buying base.

And I have no doubt it will reach it's funding goal, will be interesting to see what the 3 unlockable items are going to be.

I think you hit it on the nose, the biggest difference is one is mass produced and the other is not, and before people start saying this should be massed produced, lets not forget the last sentinel they mass produced  ended up on clearance at Ross stores. The price also includes shipping which helps in my mind at least to justify the cost a bit more.

I'm betting on:

Stretch Goal One - Another Tentacle (Bleh, but it's easy and makes sense)

Stretch Goal Two - Swappable Battle-damage parts and/or FX

Stretch Goal Three - Extra Pack-in 

Yeah a second tentacle seems like a good bet for at least one of em.

It saddens me a bit not to be able to support this project since it's probably the only thing missing for my X-Men display (maybe a bird winged angel)... but at the same time, my wallet is SO happy I can't purchase it anyway.

For those outside the US, in the past with these Haslab projects they have found ways to get them to folks outside the US, worked with overseas retailers and such to sell it. I can't say for sure but I woudn't totally count out the possibility of being able to get it at some point.

Looks awesome!!! It would be nice if there was an option for backers to add one or two more of the Bastion figure for $19.99 each- at least one, so we can have one to display with each head. I'm definitely going to back it- hopefully it will get to all of the stretch goals!

I can see the additional Bastion/Sentinel Prime figures being released as Pulse exclusive army builders, like the Hydra & AIM figures were.

True, but expect to pay a lot more especially if BBTS do it

Kapowtoys.co.uk was the store that back the unicorn. They said they would try and find one for us this time as well.

This looks great. 

But in all honestly i don't see the point in having just one sentinel. I would need at least three and at $350 a pop... and with $1000.00 i could buy a used motorcycle. 

would be nice if they could offer some kind of group discount. Like Buy three and they knock the price down a bit.

BBTS also did and changed an extra $200. Still don't care, I won't be supporting any HasLab crowdfunding

I totally agree.

A discount for buying in bulk. But i'm actually gonna bank on the fact that Hasbro and Haslab like money and will probably release it in larger quantities later down the line. The last couple years I've learn the waiting game generally pays off and gets you the version for the price you want.

Oh damn wow, that looks pretty cool indeed, awesome for all of you people who will be purchasing this, I however shall not be, they can't even guarantee I can get one in Canada, and they want me to pre give them 400+ dollars (Canadian Exchange), what if they turn around and say, sorry international people, that's a Bummer, gotta say no for me, cool , but no , in reality I actually have no space for it anyways, and I don't think Sentinels are thaaat neat

I wish that bastion figure was something I could just buy on its own though

Wow I'm really blown away by the size difference between this and the previously released Sentinels. I really want two of these, but $700 sure is a lot of money!!!

Trying to warn the wife ahead of time of my desire to get 2. One to keep and one to wait for those crazy after market prices. I am telling her its investment. 🙂

My strategy as well - I figure if I can convince her I'll at least break even, I'll only get an eye roll 😁
