  1. The 'test' they did was the Sentinel. It had a very low requirement for funding and surpassed all expectations--otherwise, I suspect we probably *would* be seeing more vehicles. They've done the barge, they've done the Mando ship, vehicles are proven sellers. But big robots? Again, Sentinel paved the way for Galactus. And, while I believe there may be a few hundred fans stoked to see some random Marvel vehicle, I promise you there will be 40k+ who won't touch it, specifically because they're wanting Galactus. There's plenty of time to make a Quinjet. Let's give people what they've
  2. Guys...it's Galactus, ok? I can't tell you have many times I've seen requests for him here and on numerous other boards, especially since they Sentinel Haslab was revealed. None of this other vehicle crap is realistic when Hasbro already knows they they can sell tens of thousands of Galactus, even if they jack up the scale and price to $500. Releasing some obscure vehicle or something, which would in turn means we'd have to wait *another* year or two (at least) for Galactus, would make zero business sense. That said, I am so stoked they're finally going to do this and it will be the
  3. The hypothetical 2-3' "monstrosity" would be made because that's what most of us actually *want*. Trust me, Hasbro doesn't throw together these Haslab projects because some employee demands it. Toybiz did a 10" BAF before and it looks ridiculous. The character is supposed to eat planets, not globes. Let's give him the comic representation that he deserves, not serve up people who are too cheap to buy a crowd-funded project.
  4. So don't buy it? I'm not really sure what the problem is here. People have been asking for what is (hopefully) a Galactus fanfund for ages. If we get it, how is that not GOOD for collectors? Also, the Ursa is def not a combo of those figures. And the hands and feet, especially, haven't been seen on any other ML.
  5. Let's be real here--the reason they don't do this with most female ML figures is because they would be ridiculously tiny and prone to breaking. Even the double-joints on some Spidey figures are incredibly delicate and I've managed to break one being extra careful. I'm holding a Wasp figure right now and couldn't imagine dealing with a double joint if it was even slightly brittle out of the packaging. So yeah...it's not a discriminatory thing, it's not something they just "don't want to do" or "forgot", it's a logistics thing; the more narrow the appendage, the less feasible it is to inc
  6. People are awfully critical about the re-use of the hulk mold. Let's take a moment to acknowledge how amazing that sculpt is. It's the absolute best hulk they've ever done, imo. Makes sense to use it for the other color hulks as well as Maestro. I mean they use the same body for dozens upon dozens of other heroes and people are dissing this one because it doesn't have boots. So six figures, five of which are hulks, and that's all they're allowed to do? To each their own, I suppose... Anticipated and pre-ordered.
  7. The Black Order box set is a huge slap in the face. It makes me not want to pursue BAF any longer, especially with the frequency they are re-releasing them now. In most cases, I end up buying half the set to complete the BAF. And then I can get it for $30 a year later instead, saving $60+ in the process. What's worse, the RR is often BETTER than the original BAF. Make up your mind, either have BAFs exclusive and actually collectible or ditch them altogether and just release the $30 exclusives.
  8. My point is that they didn't have to. They broke their goal by 6k on the back of the final tier (and people waiting until the last minute). Since 25% of the total buyers tagged in at the last minute, I'm doubting yet another tier would have made much of a difference. People got what they paid for with this one...
  9. I would agree that they could put something like this together once/year. But, for me, and many other collectors this was a huge purchase. Both literally and financially. And the Sentinel is such an iconic Marvel/X-Men character, there are probably very few others that would generate this level of interest. Galactus comes to mind but I suspect that, if they wanted to do him justice, he'd be twice as large and cost twice as much. That said, I wouldn't fork out even more money for another size of Giantman. I wouldn't pay more for a Sasquatch that's slightly taller than the BAF I already pa
  10. Not sure if this is a dumb question, but why would anyone order these from BBTS when you can get them several other places for less? Is there any advantages to ordering from there as opposed to Dorkside, or Pulse, Amazon, etc.?
  11. I'm glad they did a deluxe figure for Apoc but I still prefer the BAF one. This is the way they should do deluxe figures in general; not copying BAFs and doing something completely original.
  12. When I think about comics ot the TV show, it's always the team up against multiple sentinels. I love the Master Mold head but he would just end up sitting there on my display. Whereas two would allow for huge battle scenes. The damaged pieces would be amazing for dismembered parts laying about as well. I get a little giddy just thinking about it. 😛 Right now I'm sitting on nearly 200 ML and I get tired of setting up standard shelf armies. These guys would look awesome.
  13. My biggest issue right now is trying to decide whether to buy two of these or just one. Just one sentinel doesn't seem 'right' if you're going to diarama them. And then there's the after-market...keeping one to sell in a year or two to pay for the first. Though, with this many backers, I don't see these getting anywhere near the SW barge prices.
  14. This thing is amazing. What's more amazing is the amount of people complaining about it because they can't afford it. Sorry guys but the fans have spoken and they aren't going to release the 'Lab' products ever again. The whole point of them is that they are limited edition products, they've figured the cost of max production and hell they've even had to scrap project in the past because they didn't meet the order requirements. So don't give me this "The molds are already created and it'll be mass-market in a few years!" bit. Even if they put this thing into stores at $200, no one would t
