I think weíre pretty likely to see some coordinated promotions going on tomorrow or even later today leading up to the first episode.

A season 2 tie in would be pretty cool.

Maybe its cyborg darkside Quille. Jk

We should find out about tier 4 soon....only 72 more orders until 13k.

Would it help if I got out and pushed?

Lights and sounds... I hope. A blurrg with exclusive paint decor would be a way to launch a blurrg mold and an exclusive at the same time.

Holy moly. Mystery unlocks #4 & #5 have been added.

I have a feeling these haven't even gone up yet. There are no eBay listings for it, which is usually a dead giveaway.

Weird as I have an order for two with email confirmation.
Did you score it today or previously?

I haven't found any fan site with people stating they had a successful order for this today. No one is even saying they had this in a cart today.

Only reason I know is because I looked it up earlier this week:  JD Twitter: "The Barge campaign is over with 8840 barges backed!"

I looked it up because I made a bet with a friend that Hasbro would pull in more $ for this than the barge.  He thinks this will never sell as well as the Barge did (OT elitist! :P)

8840 Barges @ $500 each = $4,420,000

Going to have to sell 12,629 Razor Crest to beat that dollar amount.  6-pack of Surly on the line! :)

Important update: 11940+ this morning. 

Less than 700 to go for me to get free beers! :)

Do you get more free beer if this gets to 15K? I think it will.

I feel like the shipping box for this one will be more reasonable than the giant coffin the barge had, so probably some savings there? The Razor Crest seems like it breaks down a bit more.

I thoughts the same, but this box will have to be 32--34" long unless there are more detachable components than the guns.

My guess is the TVC box by itself is 32" long, 16" deep and 12" high. This also assumes that the turbines ship detached and have a sturdy snap on like the foreword mandibles on the BMF.

It's 9 pm MDT and the count is 9,827.  I'll check again tomorrow to see how many they're getting a day.  I know it's not very scientific, but it could give us a decent idea on the pace this thing is selling now.

It has been averaging around 100 sales a day since passing 8,000.

Picked up Hondo and Fives from Target this morning. Super relieved to have gotten these guys so easily without a lot of frenzied driving around.  :)
Did you preorder those or find them on the pegs?


Just found them on the pegs oddly enough. Not sure if they got one case or two, a few had sold before I got there. They ring up under the 6045 DPCI if that helps.

Thanks,  I found them today as did several others near Minneapolis. Apparently normal jedi luke is 1 per case, side-eye jedi Luke is also one per case.

It looks like this might have stalled around 8,600.  I like the fact that we have clear indications of the Child coming in The Vintage Collection.  But this figure really should be coming already without the benefit of a crowdfunding campaign.

Itís almost 8,700 now and there are 40 days left. 10k is a no brainer.


The numbers are moving.  Itís at 8,858 as of 11:00 ET today.  Based on the amount of time it took to get from 8k to this level, itís almost a lock to hit 10k within the 40 day window.  Iím just wondering about how quickly we get there, and the decreasing rate of growth in backers as orders taper off.

Well, given that this week may be the first week with a pay day for some fans since the launch, we probably have a lot of backers still to come. The thing was funded almost instantly and there are still 40 days left. Who knows where it will go. I'm still hoping for 2 more unlocks.

I could be turned around if they include a second version of the kid in and old white mailer box, so you can keep the carded version in tact.

Also, is there a statement on the Mando figure packaging? I don't recall that, but I feel the same way. Give us one on TVC and another in a white mailer box to open.

Silly Brian.  If they gave you two of each figure with Razor Crest, you'd have no reason to buy more!


Yeah, I know. They have to have stretch goals though.  If this thing sells as much as the sentinel did, they really should pony up more surprises with it.

On another note, I think I'm fine with this release not being a Death Star due to new developments at Hasbro. The evolution of design from the 2019 Jabba's palace set/scene to the Carbon Freezing Chamber and on to the Blockade Runner hallway is really showing vast improvement in Hasbro's design efforts. Many of us have been using the phrase "modular Death Star". I'm going to assume that for a while now they have had a CAD model of a Death Star that isn't modular. Maybe the new design success with the Blockade Runner hallway have prompted a redesign to give more potential to a Death Star set. I can hope.

Love that tier 2. However, I imagine those not buying the Crest are losing their minds right now

I'm underwhelmed with Tier 1 & 2. I want to be whelmed damnit!.

I don't think I would care about the escape pod even if it is used in season 2.
Also, the lack of carbonite blocks is shocking. There had better be a surprise coming up.
