If its European orders count towards the backers goal as they are saying, you kids might get this statue made after all.


Dang we must've seen this at the same time I would have credited you Ironhidensh if I'd seen your post sorry about that ;)^

And that ought to do it. They were less than 2500 short before. That should put them over the top.

Good news for the brits that wanted him, I hope he does get made (and those on here getting him flood this thread with pictures when the anointed time arrives)

They needed this. 8000 at the pricepoint in the US was going to be hard to hit.

I would like to see a Hook Line and Sinker four pack that comes with a Marvel color scheme version of TR Galvatron with the Titan helmet feature better modded. Dreams are fun :lol: after the Powerdashers though all things are possible.

Unicron would be the perfect bot to package figures of Hook, Line, and Sinker with. it's a wasted opportunity to not do that

With the C.O.M.B.A.T. System being such a big part of WFC how wild would it be if he had like Armada Upgrade Armor or Oblivion armor and it’s like rocket launchers in the legs and a mega canon in the chest like Armada Unicron had :lol: like how with Jetfire they gave him the Valkyrie-esque armor pieces.

The price they are charging, something like that is the very least they should be giving you with it.

"Kapow toys will be the only authorised outlet for this project within the UK / EU backed directly by Hasbro, please do not use unauthorised sellers"

Maybe if you don't wait two months to offer a chance to buy from an authorized seller, folks wouldn't have had to resort to an unauthorized seller.

Optional add-on available only through Pulse six months after he's released.

This is the sort of thing that concerns me about Pulse, not so much exclusive figures, but that they'll start offering add-ons for the figures only through Pulse.

Yup. That and more go-fund-mes. It's why I've found this whole deal shady from the start.
