HasLab Force FX Elite Reva Lightsaber:
5/27 - 439
5/29 - 730
6/3 - 957
6/13 - 1034
6/23 - 1103

18+ days left... 

1,096 backers as of 6/20.

The epic finale of OWK was apparently worth... 7 backers?  Again, I know these things crater in the middle and surge at the end, but this is gonna need a heck of a surge to make it to production.

I am no Inquisitor fan, and no Force FX Lightsaber person either. However, am I correct in noticing that the HasLab Saber has a full ring around the holt like most Inquisitor sabers do, even though every time I noticed Reva's Saber in the show it only had a half-circle guard? Is this thing screen accurate?

I believe at the end of episode 5 when Reva was battling with it she got it in spin mode with the full circle handle.  I think that is the only time I saw it in that mode.

The Haslab is designed to go either way (full ring/half ring) so people can buy it and use it as Reva's or one of the other Inquisitors depending on their cosplay choice.  Not sure why they decided to market it as "Reva's Saber" instead of just "Imperial Inquisitor Lightsaber", but the intention is you can use it for whichever one you want - from the Haslab description:

"Unique form factor: This lightsaber features both half- and full-circle configuration—complete with lights and sound effects—based on the Inquisitors’ iconic lightsabers featured in the live-action Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi streaming on Disney+"

6" Cobra HISS Tank = 5500 backers in the first 3 hours; Inquisitor FX Elite Lightsaber... not so much. :P

Yeah, this lightsaber was already doomed, but today it was steamrolled by a fleet of HISS tanks. I wonder if people will start cancelling to back the tank.

Yeah, I'm not sure how related HISS Tanks are to FX lightsabers, but the Reva saber has no momentum.

It is interesting to see how quickly a good 3.75" offering is backed (Razor Crest, HISS Tank) and how everything else seems to languish.  Its pretty easy to see the pattern.  Hopefully Hasbro sees it too.

The HISS Tank is a 6" offering.  It's kind of apples and oranges since the HISS lends itself to 'army building' more than the Rancor did, but it's clear that the GI Joe team learned what not to do after watching the Rancor project fizzle.

I didn't realize Joe's did 6", but I don't follow the line at all.

Its interesting to see they've already hit the first stretch goal unlock and they haven't even announced what it is.  Kinda like when the Razor Crest was blowing through all the unlocks before they were announced too.

The HISS tank has hit its second unlock.

Meanwhile Reva’s saber has added 11 new backers in the past three days.

This is sad and entertaining at the same time. Hopefully the SW Haslab team gets a reboot.

Yeah, I'm not sure if they've got a mission to broaden the Haslab SW collecting world, or if their primary mission is to make money.

If its to make money they should stay focused on 3.75".  If its to broaden the Haslab world to something other than 3.75" they've managed to get the failure part mastered. 

They're 2 for 2 on 3.75" and 0 for 2 on everything else.
