I wouldn't be surprised if the big first push on these is a high % of institutional buyers, like BBTS, Dorkside, ToyWiz, EE, etc. So things level off when it gets down to fans who are saving up for it, or who are on the fence for the stretch reveals. I'm guessing 11k by next Friday, then Hasbro might need to goose things with an early stretch goal reveal.

I thought those numbers aren’t accounted for right away?

The prime sentinels aren't "modern" , they're late 90s/early 2000s era.

IIRC, the female Haslab prime sentinel is based on a 2018 design from X-Men: Blue, and Bastion's head is from the same era.

BBTS hasn't even listed any yet.

This art looks older than 2018.... Image

Interesting, considering the sentinels themselves are HoX/PoX designed... so it only matters with certain characters to you i guess?

Bastion was created in 1996

There are some features, like her hair style/color and (lack of) body detail, that are more in line with the 90s version, but her "helmet," chest armor, and mechanical neck are from 2018:

Yeah, I’m waiting for the stretch goals before I decide, but the Silver Surfer tease is a huge buzzkill. I already have the Walgreens SS from a couple up years ago. Getting a figure I already have isn't incentivizing me to drop $400.

Surfer should be a fan channel rerelease for people who missed him, not be tying up one of the stretch goals. If they were giving us the choice between Nova or Surfer, I would be cool with that. Maybe offer backers the chance to get both for an extra $25. That way people who missed Surfer could get both and Hasbro makes more money.

Oof someone’s got a bug up their butt. We don’t get a lot of choices in the 26” sentinel department so it will have to work. Does having zero connection to the little humanoid sentinels work better for you? Modern is just the word I’m using for their designs. It does not mean current. You can relax.

My fear as a non-backer is that I won't be able to get Nova. I've kept up with the classic-fish FF as they've come out, but I can't afford to spend Haslab prices on a single figure.

Things get really weird when people resort to personal attacks instead of just admitting their wrong or not saying anything at all.

People can also just let things go and not need to “correct” others.
After all, it’s just opinions.

Lol but thats my point. Its a poor word choice Image I have no beef with you or a bug stuck anywhere. Just thought it was a really odd comment all things considered.
