I'm starting to wonder if Hasbro launched this before the ship is reduced to landing gear by the end of the season. That thing is taking a beating. After episodes 9&10 I need replacement junk panels.

Interesting to see the evolution of HasLab projects and in general how each new one is making more money than the previous one.  The only exceptions are the failed Cookie Monster, and the successful (only at a lower volume) HeroQuest.

I wonder how much of this is fine tuning the commercialization of these and finding the right price point.  Both the Sentinel and Razor Crest were priced at $350, less than the Barge and Unicron, but ultimately sold a lot more $ volume.

I wonder if $350 is the new magic number for these projects.

I'd love to see what they could do with a Death Star for $350.

My hope is for a modular and customizable death star that could be configured in any dimension. If they do It right it could accommodate any display space and be combined with multiple sets for a bigger display.

I would like a design with a small hangar that can accommodate a TIE interceptor, but can be expanded with either multiple sets and or extra wall/floor pieces through unlock tiers. Some people will want to display an imperial shuttle or the falcon, but that much space would restrictive for many people.

They really struggle with Pedro's face. The TBS looks like Noel Fielding and this one kind of looks like Nathan Fillion.

Hasbro pulse is now sold out on this. That seems significant. Hopefully it sends a loud message to hasbro about how much we like playsets with an amazing design.

I wish there was a way to get Hasbro to just move TVC to $15 price point to increase the amount of *new* in the line.  Having to be 50/50 repack/new to get the line down to $13 sucks.

I'm on board. How do we start beating the drum to make this happen.

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

Congratulations Jeff!

Yay for free beers! :)

It's official.  I'm asking my buddy to upgrade my 6-pack to a 12-pack because we're now past double the amount invested into the Sail Barge ($4.4 million).

I'm just stunned that people put up $9.6+ million on this.

I was gonna say... he owes you way more beer.

I kind of wonder if this crazy success might get hasbro motivated to stay on track with yearly star wars projects.

Now that there will be 28,000 exclusive elder jawas and babies, I might be more inclined to open them.  ??? That is a lot less scarce than the barge yakface.

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 think we’re 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.
