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

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.

Highly suspected would be one of the tiers - love it!  I hope we get a crazy unexpected 6 inch figure next...something none of us would have expected...I doubt that is what will happen, but that would be my preference.

 

I would hope if there is something like a battle damaged chest to go with the head. A BD head with a pristine clean body looks kinda funny.

Yeah, I dunno how they'd do it, though...clip on?  There's got to be a limit on interchangeable parts before things get more  complicated than they want to go with this, but I dunno.  I do agree it looks a bit off, though.

If it passes 9,000 would Hasbro possibly add more tiers?

Could they?  Sure.  Will they?  Dunno.  I think for sure they add a 10K goal, but they've got to be careful about "Scope creep."  They still want this to turn a profit after all, so if this continues to add goals beyond 10K I suspect they'll become less and less tangible.  Basically less parts and pack-ins and more stuff like those "Marvel Online Points" and whatnot.

I would like to throw money at this but can't. I love the ideas and work behind all of this. Master Mold head is a great idea.

The thing is that everything gets cheaper for them to produce if they have to produce more, so they probably have things planned out to maintain $X profit, but more backers gives them more budget without cutting into X. If they need 6,000 backers to make the numbers work, but end up with 15,000, they can make it a whole lot more worthwhile for each of those backers without losing a single percentage point.

Sure, they COULD.  But the higher ups will look better upon them, HasLab in general, and this particular project if they get a wider profit margin out of it.  So...they have to play the balancing act of pleasing fans and pleasing the bean-counters.  I wouldn't be at all surprised if stretch goals basically cut off at 10K.  Or conversely we hit 10K and the next goal is at 15K instead of 11K.  But I guess we'll see.

How would people feel about a Peter Dinklage Bolivar Trask as a stretch goal? Probably a long shot but it’ll be savings on plastic 😛

They wouldn't put a movie figure in with a comic set. I don't know why people keep asking for Bolivar Trask. Didn't he like die particularly after he was created?

I did ponder the idea of a "normal" BAF-sized Movie Sentinel as a pack-in, mostly because I was trying to think of Sentinel-linked Troop Builders they could beyond just adding another Prime Sentinel.  But I think Tarot is right, they likely would never mix movie and comic in a single product like that.

But yeah, Trask is unlikely, either in Dinklage or unremarkable comic form.

Yeah, Trask died at the end of the Sentinels first storyline when he sacrificed himself to stop the Sentinels.  He was later resurrected by Bastion though.

Battle Damaged Head sculpt? Errrr......okay, I guess. Great to depict all those legendary battles where the X-Men only attacked his head (oh, and hand) and the rest of his entire body showed no signs of distress. I guess.

Static stickers are pretty damn cheap to make.

9000 Tier announced. Female Prime Sentinel. Now those who bought multiple can really army build.

Now we're talkin'. Not sure if that's the new & improved female buck they've been teasing us with, but those sure aren't the standard bony legged, knobby kneed Kate Bishop legs.

If I was Hasbro now, instead of making new tier for 10000, 11000 etc I would widen the tiers. Something like 120000, 15000, 20000 etc. I don't think they expected this to be as profitable as it is.
