Blech. I wish there were a way to liberate all of the graded toys and games out there without the people who locked them up benefiting in any way.

Anyway...

Still haven't pre-ordered it but I'm probably going to.

Sounds like they're well short of the goal. Prob won't be funded.



I'm thinking that may be the case too. From what I read about the Jabba Barge, it wasn't until the last week or so that it finally shot up. I'm keeping an eye on it, so if it gets close that last week, I'll do it but yeah, its only less than 2500 backers in and has 18 days left.

Made the mistake of going to the Lego store. Guess I'm putting together Voltron.

I think that's exactly why Jabba's barge shot up in the final week. I think there are a lot of people who wait to pull the trigger until they see what everyone else does.

yeah I got the Barge and it was looking like it wasnt going to make it until they threw in the yak face figure then it surpassed expectations as alot got the barge and sold the yak to recoup a good percentage of their money back. but this one looks like it will struggle more.

Got Dr. Doom & Thor for my birthday. Been wanting him for awhile. Goes pretty awesome w/ Alex Ross life-size bust.
I'll open Thor later.68452951_10206016097597664_4269421290084892672_n.jpg

How does the build quality feel on it? I have been wanting a newer MK figure, I only got into the Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter II toys that Hasbro did in G.I. Joe molds. :keke:

What was the story with those? I was so excited when I found them. Most of them were kinda lame but Sub-Zero and Scorpion were awesome.

Pretty decent quality. For how expensive they are the quality is a bit lacking. The paint isn't spot on but good overall. The likeness is spot on though.

Keep in mind I am comparing them to Japanese figmas. These feel like a $50 figure, not $70+. Also you don't get a base for them at all to stand on.With that said it may be your only option of getting certain characters for moron kombat unless you're lucky and pop culture/sideshow has a figure.

I hear they are making darkstalker figures and johnny cage in the likeness of Daniel Pesina. Hopefully they turn out good and they make bishamon/demetri/sasquatch/jedah maybe hsien ko. I would certainly pick them up.

I do plan to get this unmasked mk 3 subzero and johnny cage if it does get made.

Welp, seeing as how I've been outta work for a month due to a herniated disc extrusion in my neck, I'm not gonna have money for Unicron, which I *thought* wasn't going to back, but it looks like it's at about 7500/8000 backers.

Aint that some shit.

Lol was actually cleared for work starting Monday this morning. I'm a little nervous as I'm still in a bit of discomfort. But I got some tramadol to help.
