  1. Look at what Mattel is giving fans for $200 more - a 3 foot by 4 foot playset with electronics and more features than I can count. And up to three figures, (depending on how many tiers are unlocked - and if you back early). With a massive, extensive, set like Eternia priced at $550, it makes a car with three and a quarter figures priced at $350 look really over priced.
  2. Maybe, but I don't think that many people will be lamenting the loss of the car, which is what Hasbro is supposed to be selling us. Mephisto and the Goblin Queen are supposed to be incentives, not the main focus, and really all anyone is talking about are the two figures. I'd rather complain in 10 years that I don't have the figures, then spend $350 for a Mephisto and Goblin Queen, which is all I really would want from this offer.
  3. Me too. I also want the Mattel Eternia Playset WAAAY more than I want the over priced car.
  4. I agree. Hasbro has already spent the money tooling new parts on these two figures. With Mephisto being on so many peoples want lists, even if this project doesn't get funded I think we see at least Mephisto, if not both figures at a regular release, (or an etailer exclusive), at some point. Not right away mind you, since Hasbro will be P.O.ed they didn't get their way by getting a $150-$200 max value product for $350, so they will "pout" for awhile, but I do think we'll eventually see it, (or them), regardless.
  5. I've been on the fence as to whether to open this figure or not. I had purchased it with the intention of opening it, but when I finally got it, it didn't "wow" me. I thought after the initial fun of opening him and posing him a few times, sticking the "Kick Me" sign on him, I doubt I'd have much "use" for him. I'll probably keep him carded for now.
  6. I feel like if what they were offering fans in the way of the actual Haslab item, i.e. a Sentinel or Galactus quality piece, rather than - a car - the campaign would worry so much about the unlocks to sell it. Offer a quality piece for a reasonable price and it will sell regardless of unlockable content.
  7. Really looking forward to a few of these releases and probably will spend more money than I want to. However... While I love the retro card backs, I can't help but think about the price increases for the "deluxe" tag, and the lack of these figures in a "wave" which gets Hasbro out of including build a figure pieces, maximizing their profits.
  8. I had no idea Mojo was coming out individually boxed, I guess I'm fairly out of the loop. I have to echo the comments from some of the posters here though - why $41 for the largest piece in the set and $130 for Mojo, Longshoot and Dazzler, and "Wolverine". That math does not add up, even if you factor in exclusivity. I'm already passing on the Haslab offering, and may cancel my exclusive three pack as well. It seems more and more that the Star Wars business model is carrying over to the Marvel Legends line.
  9. I think it will get backed - there are always hordes of last minute speculators who buy these projects hoping to triple their money down the line. Personally I think it would be a mistake to do so for this project, I just don't see a ton of return on your investment down the line, but I've been wrong before, many times in fact. But with this car there isn't the same type of wow factor that there has been with the last two Marvel Haslab projects. When you're more interested in Mephisto then the car, you've got serious problems with the project.
  10. I was skeptical when this Haslab product was announced. To go from a Sentinel, to Galactus to a car, all be it a nice car, was a questionable move in my opinion. As it's been pointed out, Ghost Rider does not have that big of a following, as say the X-Men do, and despite the 50 year anniversary, if they had to make a vehicle it would have made more sense to do something larger, like an X jet. Bottom line is that, (for me), this vehicle is not worth the $300+ and as much as I want the Mephisto figure I'm not spending over $300 for it and a car that I would open, turn on the lights say "that's cool and well done", then throw it back in the box and probably never open again and eventually sold it.
