  1. Am I the only one that likes the Skrull wave costumes over the oldschool? When that wave was released it was the first time I actually wanted a complete FF team (but with the older 'on fire' Johnny of course). Everyone else seems to hate it and love the original costumes. 😞
  2. I just don't get the whole Fantasticar thing. Maybe it's because I'm not the biggest FF fan out there but vehicles have always seemed like more of a Star Wars thing than a Marvel thing when it comes to toy manufacturing. There are so many iconic ships and whatnot for SW and then Marvel has...that car. And the Quin Jet, which is pretty cool but still. Would I want to pose my FF figures in a car? Probably not. And, for some reason, the name reminds me of the Scooby Doo "Dream Machine" in terms of overall corniness. Who knows, I've been wrong about these things before. There's just only so much I can do with another toy car or van or whatever.
  3. I do believe the tiers/rewards are pre-determined, BUT...there's no reason this sort of thing can't be adjusted. They have a proprietary figure stand that they sell on Pulse that could be added to this easily and be used for Nova. She comes with an effect but being able to pose her in 'flight mode' above the effect would be great. That's just the first thing that comes to mind. I'm sure there are other random items they've used in the past that they could have dusted off the mold for. I'm not complaining about what we're already getting--it's more than enough incentive and I would have purchased the figure even without any of them. But these things go a long way in securing additional backers, as was evident this past week. 1k of these is $400,000. That's pretty substantial for a small additional tier/bonus/whatever and, were I them, I'd love to be able to boast 26k (or more) backers.
  4. Damn, this will be 25k if not 26k by end of day, Come on Hasbro, give us those naked leg swaps!
  5. To be fair, it's mostly the same six or seven people using the "It's free, don't complain!" argument. I mean, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I don't believe anyone is buying a second one of these *because* of the Doom head, though. Reddit should always be taken with a grain of salt.
  6. Hey man, over on Reddit people are being virtually lynched for speaking out about the Doom head!
  7. I think one of the reasons this tier stings just a tad is because of the rhetoric around shipping and plastic prices (which were reasons used to help justify the price) and yet here we have what's essentially a plastic turd to most people. I'd rather they just keep the plastic and pay it forward to some other project. I mean, so many people would have been content with a round plastic ball (planet). That would have made a decent portion of the buyers happy. But this will cater to like...no one. 1%. Some ridiculously small number. It just doesn't make sense.
  8. Is there any way we can channel the essence of Galacta-Doom to destroy this tier and remake it as something else? Or just donate it to some plastic charity. I almost feel bad knowing my support is contributing to this tier. With the rising cost of plastic and shipping and all...
  9. I'm ok with not reaching this goal. WTF is this? I mean, is anyone going to use this thing?
  10. If here even is a 4th tier. And assuming they set it at 21k instead of 22k. The smart move would be the latter; I can't see this thing getting 1k/day for the last two days but I've been wrong before...
  11. It's a 3D rendering. Like they did for the AoA wave. They probably have dozens of these things in queue, some of which we'll see, some maybe never. I suspect most wave "reveals" will be like this going forward as it gives them a chance to build hype earlier than waiting for the actual prototypes to be finished.
  12. It'll make 20k; the numbers/hour have been up, not down and three more 600 days will be easy. But I think that'll be it. I'm surprised on two counts: 1) That they went from 1k tiers up to 2k for the last incentive. 2) That this is the last tier. I really would have been happier with an effect of some sort than another herald, especially this one. And they could have easily done a single release of him after Galactus and sold a fair amount. Who knows, maybe we'll get another 'thank you' like we did with the Sentinel! Grats to every else who helped fund this!
  13. lol what? How many BAFs, other than those you listed, can you name that are the same as normal sized figures?
  14. I'm doubting the third tier will be another figure (if there is one). I wouldn't mind an accessory/effect at this point. A mini textured planet would be cool for solo posing.
  15. I mean...two weeks ago you said this: And they said they would be coming out with Rachel soon. We already have Nightcrawler and she's the last of the original five we'd need to complete the team. Not sure why you're all twisted about this all of the sudden. You wait a month or two, get your Rachel and you're set. And you've saved on your hypothetical 120 purchase price.
  16. Dorkside always sells the BAF figures without the rest of the wave if you want to save yourself $60+. They also sell loose figures at a discount if you don't want the BAF parts. Unrelated, I just read the "pulse exclusive" part for the Excalibur 3 pack. Guess 90% of us will never get it since they always sell out within 2 mins...
  17. Wow, what great reveals! Def buying this whole wave now. And the Excalibur set--my wallet! 😞 Anyone else see how easily they could make a Rhino out of that Armadillo?
  18. I was talking about why he thought they'd go from 2k backer incentives to 3k or even 4k.
  19. It doesn't make sense for online retailers like BBTS and Dorkside to buy these and then "sell for a premium". Not unless that premium is at least 50% (and usually more) and they're buying direct from the manufacturer. There's no way they'd buy 1,000 of these to only make say $100 on each figure, less the cost of tax, shipping and manpower required to sell. That's a ridiculously slim profit margin for retail. That said, the number did go up by a thousand within a very very short period of time...
  20. I've been refreshing every 5-10 mins and seeing 20+ new orders every time. Crazy. This may even hit 18k.
  21. Now this is exciting. 16k easily by 8/30. I was going to wait until this weekend to order but I'm doing it today. 🙂
  22. I remember buying that as a kid for like $30? I'm not sure how improved a version they could make Rancor for a Haslab project. I wouldn't mind seeing a full-sized Millennium Falcon remake though.
