I'm pretty happy this is getting made. While it's overpriced, including 5 figures instead of just Ace really helps the value. I know the chance is slim, but I'm hoping for Ripcord.

I backed this when it was first revealed, but I just checked my order history to make sure. It really would have sucked to find out I never bought one when I thought I did.

I’d be curious if they offered the tiers not met as an exclusive preorder for those that do back this. Yeah they’re be a separate charge but it might be better than just not making them.

I think Hasbro will just release any tiers that don't get backed around the time of the Skystriker shipping. Like you said they will be separate and cost whatever the price is at the time, but I'm all but certain they would do that. Especially with the Pit Crew who would go specifically with the Skystriker. And as a nice bonus I'm sure they would sell more than with the Haslab because there would probably be a bunch more collectors who would want just them to go with the vehicles they already have, and $40 is easier to swallow than $220.

Yeah it stopped just short of 11,000 for a while. Now it seems to be stuck again at 11,303.

I KNEW IT!!! HASBRO IS FUDGING THE NUMBERS TO KEEP US FROM GETTING ANY UNLOCKS SO THEY DON"T HAVE TO COUGH UP MORE FIGURES!!! I KNEW THEY WERE DOING IT ALREADY WITH THE RANCOR, BUT THIS IS TOO MUCH!!!!! :lol:

I hope they get the counter working soon. Not only does it kind of kill the excitement and momentum, but I was looking forward to watching it in real-time as the campaign closed tonight.

Yes, I'm a nerd.

It's just shooting up very fast now, I think scarlett at least is guaranteed.

I really don't want flight suit Scarlett. Yet I want it to unlock. More included figures is always better.

12,305, up from 12,284 two minutes ago.

At this pace Scarlett is a lock. I would really love to get all the tiers unlocked, but I don't think that will happen. Maybe Ripcord, but the Pit Crew seems like a big stretch.

I think if we get to Ripcord there's a decent chance the floodgates will open and we'll get that remaining 2k to get the flight crew. I just don't think we'll get to Ripcord. But yes! Scarlett seems to be a lock!

I'm not saying this is a healthy way to think of this, but if you have the cash and want this even a little bit I'd grab it. If you regret it in a year you can flip it and make at least a little bit of money. However, if you don't get it and you regret it in a year then you'll be paying at least an extra hundred or two (in my opinion). The carded figures alone will likely fetch a decent little bit on the secondary market, let alone the Skystriker itself.

Almost three hours left and Scarlett just funded. Come on Rip Cord.

Two hours to go. We didn't quite hit the 1000 backers per hour I was hoping we would when we unlocked Scarlett but it's still moving at a really good pace. Hopefully the last couple hours really kick it into high gear.

14,249 with 1 hour 33 minutes left. I think the pace is strong enough for Ripcord, but I'm still negative on the Pit Crew. Hope I am proven wrong though!!
