3,348 now. Go baby!

I think if they threw in that sweet sailbarge Nikto, that would be just the bump it needs.

3,397 just a little while later.

That's about 500 in a little over the last two days. 

I'm believing again.

Oh good, I was worried they weren't going to make enough Nosferatu variants.

I'm holding off on ordering.  At least until they crack the 4K mark. 

To each their own, but why?  You won't get charged if it doesn't hit 5000 backers, so ordering now just adds to the momentum and sends the message to others that it's moving along.  What's the reason to wait?

Could be its a common back office order system that is incrementing order numbers for things other than just Sail Barges.  Maybe internal employee orders for Monopoly...

Totally spit balling and I know nothing about this stuff, but maybe orders get a certain digit near the front based on geography?

In other news, over 3000!

That's such old news, it's a 3,028 now.

After today I'm starting to think there's actually a chance again.

Seems to be working... 2953 now.


2917 an hour later.  Seems that for the first time in awhile it's got some legs...

Fine with me.  I bet there will be carded collectors galore who will either a) buy the barge or b) be in the market for the figure... which might incentivize people to buy the barge knowing they can resell the figure to get some of the cost back.

I'd been wondering why they didn't do a painted mock up to convince people of the awesomeness... glad to see this as part of the push.  And while I'd normally be furious about an exclusive figure, I'm backing, so I'm not quite as upset.   :-*

Do we know if the figure itself is exclusive, or just the POTF packaging?  I hope they package it carefully.

Holy ****!  I had heard about TRU getting product on credit, but that's just ludicrous!  And the fact that they owe Mattel over $150 million?  I can't believe anyone would do business like that.

Why not?  It's Toys R Us, not Dark Side Toys... also, if you can't sell the product and pay for it, manufacturers just take the product back at bankruptcy...

Good episode for sure, but Rick needs to be 1000x smarter about his ammo.  Negan was a sitting duck.

All I know is that thread over at RS is an epic train wreck of idiocy. Like, Olympic level.

Between the people who are angry about it for any one of 10 terrible reasons, to the people who think they understand marketing better than Hasbro does... I don't know why I keep checking it.

Oh crap. Yeah, I forgot that she doesnít just pick them up in the falcon. Oops.

Itís been almost three months since I saw it.  :P

I picked up this set last night.  All in all, it actually looks pretty good.  Rey seems like the only real repeat.  And even then they tried to give her some deco that would be a little different.

Yeah... I thought Iíd be adding her to the resell pile, then I saw that sheís got Crait dust all over her shoes, which makes no sense since she never set foot on the planet, but oh well.

FYI, after opening it last night, itís really nothing more than a straight repack of the TFA x-wing with a crappy plastic engine that is stuck onto the back end.  Poe is the same as the TLJ carded release, which is only a slight repaint of the TFA version.  Itís an very lazily made item.   

Iím feeling like it wasnít really worth the money, although when I inevitably sell one, Iíd probably keep this one since it could be either depending on that engine.
