Thread: Jabba's Sail Barge

  1. #21
    I've backed a lot of projects through crowdfunding, big and small.

    I know there's an image that it's just for indie upstarts and amateur would be entrepreneurs, but it can be more than that.

    It can be used by established companies to create something that they wouldn't otherwise be able to. Hasbro is far from the first big company to do something like this.

    Think of it more as a paid pre-order that won't go into production unless a certain number of pre-orders are met. Crowdfunding is just a buzzword they used.

    We barely get the standard release items so it's not surprising.

    They said its a prototype, surely it will be painted when completed

    I don't think that is paint. That looks like cloth to me.

    Im worried that less than two months is not enough of time. 6 seems much more reasonable.

    Can you imagine, going through a scalper, then being violated by shipping costs and subsequently intercepted by Customs. It'll top 1k to get one of these to the UK easy. You know, that second-biggest market for SW toys in the world?

    Disgusting.
    May you live in interesting times.

    From a purely selfish POV, me too. My collection focus of over two decades will not be complete and not because of the money, most likely. I object in principle to being denied it haha!

    11 now

    Would be 12 if they went so far as to put a different sticker on the shipping box

    Agree with fellow non US'ers above.
    I might have to time a holiday to the US when this is released near a fellow 'scummer if I ever want to own one...

    Seems like they've missed out on three backers so far lol!

    'It was a silent trip. We all knew what was about to happen, what we were about to do. Did we have any doubts? Any private traitorous thoughts? Perhaps, but no one said a word.
    Not on the flight back to Coruscant, not when Order 66 came down, and not when we marched into the Jedi Temple. Not a word.'
