Would a Sentinel sized Leopardon be successful? I think with the right stretch goals it could work.

Foom with some solid tiers would really do well. He is the only choice going forward.

I just don't understand everyone thinking Hasbro would do a Punisher Van. Especially after 2020 and the current comics ditching the Skull logo.

No, seriously, why's he buying a pig? Is it a toy pig?
If you’re actually asking seriously, I think that was a typo, or spell correct messed up his post. I believe he meant to type “answer”, and it ended up being “an sow”. You got to watch spell correct. It sometimes gives some weird results.

I think Fin Fang Foom could work.
I think a deluxe set like an Imperial Guard with 10 figures would work.
I think a playset that comes with figures (i.e. Danger Room) could work.
IDK that there are too many other Haslab worthy Marvel items that could do it. Granted there are big figures like Celestials, Ego, etc but I don't see them translating into 9,000+ backers.

Giant Man is essential for any Avengers display and is one of the most iconic Toybiz BAFs.

I would personally like to see a campaign where you get him at different sizes all the way from Haslab Sentinel sized down to the penny sized Ant Man statues they have made in the past with differently sized variant in between.

Does anyone think there would be any interest in Haslab doing boxsets of characters that might not go over so well at retail? Civilian/secret identity boxset? Deep dive hero/villain set? Updated monsters set?

That's been widely requested, at least on this board. No HasLab has done that yet, but I could see it. They are a business.

Haslab's an opportunity to do characters and things that might not fly at retail, like Mephisto. It would actually be the perfect opportunity to make the Punisher Van, and, honestly, the van probably shouldn't have his logo on it anyway, considering he's supposed to be inconspicuous.

I think the Punisher van is dead in the water if the Charger doesn't fund. No way they're getting approval to try a different, less visually interesting vehicle if the Charger fails when they have the option to do another giant character which has been a massive success twice over.

My guess is next year would be Fin Fang Foom
If so
What tiers would you want to see 'unlocked?'

The Hellcharger will fund; it's just a matter of will it reach all of its other tiers?

I think price would pay a big factor, as would whatever they decide to offer with the Punisher Van before tier levels are added. Instead of all the alternate Hellcharger parts (which, of course, wouldn't be needed here), I think a multitude of weapons and an extra figure would help fund this thing.

I'm not sure what the other tiers would be, but I'd be lying if I said the Russian with Ma Gnucci, Microchip, Barracuda, Bushwacker, and Frankencastle wouldn't cause me to plunk my cash down asap on this kind of thing.
