Am I being an a55 insofar as I object to 'crowdfunding' the world's largest toy company selling products of IP owned by the world's largest entertainment company?
The concept sticks in my craw.

Are there really 5000 collectors out there willing to cough up $500 for a sail barge? I've wanted a sail barge for years, but I don't want one for that much, by any means

Darthsatan,

They have to insure 5000 buyers to go into production. It’s for preorder purposes, it’s not because Hasbro doesn’t have the money. :rolleyes:

Its a $500 toy...it can’t go straight to retail without Hasbro being sure it won’t end up on a clearance endcap.

Sheesh give them some credit. Think about the toy market and the risks involved....

I agree. Crowdfunding seems so amateur and indie - I mean Hasbro is THE biggest toy company in the world lol

I mean, what did you expect? They have told us to do the BMF again it would be like $400. This is even bigger. I think they even estimated in the past that the barge would be around $500. But ya, I don't know if there are 5k people that will jump on board. Interesting to see if so.

Anyone outside of the US thinking of backing the Sail Barge, don't bother. They're not shipping worldwide.

"Void outside of the United States"

It's on the website. I need say no more sadly, or I'd put the money right down now.

Theres ONE commit so far.

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.

Gutting. Would have supported this.
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.

Yep. Me too. I kinda hope doesn't reach its target now ; )

#sorrynotsorry
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 :whistling:

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!

I get where you are going with this but...nah. Hasbro is the toy/entertainment equivalent of Microsoft or Google. They have partnerships with THE biggest entertainment juggernauts in the world. I can go on and on but "Disney" and nuff said.

It's an amateur move. I know the argument is going to be "well look at the 6" TIE and how bad it did". Nobody wanted or asked for something like that. Ever. Almost every collector as shown some interest for something along these lines at some point for years (at least across the multiple forums etc).

That being said IF one was planning to order this - it is basically a pre-order (as you stated). Doesn't make the crowdfunding part of it seem a bit eh.

Tell me about it. I wouldn't mind dropping the £ equivalent of $499 on the barge but not even getting it offered to the rest of the world our hopes are gone before this even gets its 5000 backing.

That is an amazing looking Sail Barge. It's absurd they've got something that good, and the solo release MF in the same room.

Where do you ship to?
We are currently shipping to the 50 United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and APO/FPO addresses. Please note: we cannot ship to a PO Box.
That doesnt sound definitive if you ask me. Maybe if all you folks got on the horn and complained, maybe they will change their tune. The use of "currently" seems very deliberate, especially coming from someone that writes marketing copy.

Interesting that, in this day and age, the largest toy company in the world won't find a way to involve the whole collectors community in this project. That would certainly help reaching the minimal goal of 5000 backers in only 6 weeks.

Not giving up on this even though i'm afraid i'll end up rolling eyes at a few Ebay auctions offering $5000 BIN options for this next year.

Read the small print at the end of the video. It's unambiguous.

As fantastic as that looks I will have to pass. I can't afford even close to that much and even if I could I don't have room for it. The unfortunate thing is it didn't need to be that big. It could have been half the size and people would have been just as thrilled by it. And it would have been cheaper so a lot more people would have supported it.

Canada; less Hothy than people think!
I know there are at least 2 places in Niagara Falls where you can ship stuff to for a (I think) $5 fee. I think they keep it for up to 2 weeks so any Canucks (or people willing to travel to the States) can still get a Barge.

I'm sure there are more places along the boarder that offer that service.

(Still bitter about not being eligible for the Kenner mail aways.)

This is a very important moment for the collecting community.....it suggests other things, other possibilities in the future.
