Similar first world problem here.  I prefer it to my barge tho so if someone has to go into storage, barge loses.

Heresy!!!

For those looking to run some LEDs, I've been using these guys: Evan Designs

I think they're a husband and wife duo, but they've been awesome with giving advice on the whole process for getting lights into my Jabba's diorama. I plan on getting a bunch of lights for the Carbon Freeze Chamber as my next project.

It's more of a diorama than a playset though, no? I'm glad that's the angle they're taking. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I have no interest in an Emperor's throne room, with a garbage masher one level down, and playsets tend to take huge liberties in the name of play features. Focus on the environment, not the play features.

I ended up getting two Razor Crests, but I've actually never sold a SW figure in my entire collecting life, and don't intend to start. But my kids are absolutely bananas for the Mandalorian (they've been singing the theme song at the top of their lungs for weeks), so I figure this will be a great gift as they get a little older. And hey, if the extras end up being valuable, down the road, they can choose what to do with them.

The numbers just keep inching higher.

No more unlocks but as a reward maybe backers get their premium subscription extended or non-members enrolled like they did with the barge.

That'd be cool. I was thinking maybe there would be some sort of "we did it! Here's an extra!" But hey, I'll take the membership extension too. I do feel like the overwhelming success of this project should be acknowledged, but we did get five unlock extras, and of them is 4 carbonite slabs of unique characters. I'm happy with the unlocks, but wouldn't turn down a little extra something or other.

I hear HasLab is going to clearance them out around 10pm tonight. I am waiting to jump on it then!

Don't hold your breath.

I've been sadistically subscribed to a thread at RS (I visited it a couple times on Tapatalk and now I get notifications) where a few guys were complaining about the price of the Luke Skywalker X-Wing for the past year, looking high and low for clearance prices. Since it never went low enough for them, they're now scrambling to find it at the original $99 pricepoint. Oh yeah, and they tried to buy it on a shady site and got stiffed. I mean I don't like to laugh at people's misfortune, but collectors that won't support the line they collect are just gross.

Can you just take a series of Baby Yoda posed next to various items for scale? Not that I think he's ******* adorable or anything. It's...for my wife...yeah. And my kids. Yeah, that's it.

Well...I just bought a second one. Best to not think too much about it and just pay the bill.

Yeah, that would be pretty great, but I doubt it'll happen. Still, I'm really excited that we got all the unlocks...I was happy with the base product as it was.

I wonder if this will surpass the the Haslab Sentinel project? That was 21,900 or something like that at the end. We're a little more than 1k away right now. Still, it must be a bit eye-opening for Hasbro to see a Vintage Collection item within striking distance of a Marvel Legends item since that line is like printing money (from what I gather).

**** it...I'm opening that Jawa Elder.

Though I have a year to change my mind, so...there's that. Have any of your ordered more than one Razor Crest (I'm not asking to buy your Jawa, just curious)?

I'm in the same boat. I guess we'll have to see if they release a version of the Child with the pram. Right now we don't have one on the horizon (that I know of). The Jawa will be tough, but if we get an offworld Jawa I can probably customize the Elder, depending on differences. I can also just say "**** it" and remember that I don't care about carded figures anyways.

The current count is 16,192.  You’ve got to think that we’re good for another 808 backers before the campaign ends. 

I’m just waiting to see some of the TVC fanatics come up with a meme of an Offworld Jawa chanting “Soogah!  Soogah!”

16,386

How about the next unlock?  ;D

Yeah I'm pretty happy with it. I actually plan to build a shadowbox shelf...thing for it specifically, and build the top part and customize the bottom area before running lights through the whole thing.

Jesse, do you have an example of the light you're using?

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to that one.
