12,211 / 10,000  (+243)  122.11% of funding goal with 37d 19h to go until finished.

Getting closer.  I thought for sure we would have unlocked Ripcord by this weekend, but we may have to wait until early next week at this rate.  Either way still moving along nicely.

Looking good.  Not going to unlock Ripcord today, and maybe not by the end of the weekend, but soon.  Then it will be time to reveal the next tier.

OH NO!!!  We haven't made it to the first tier unlock??!!  It's over!!!!  Everyone go home!!!!  LOL.   Nice to see it is still moving along, still a high probability of unlocking Ripcord this weekend.

11,121 / 10,000 (+2,179)  111.21% of funding goal with 40d 17h to go.

No surprise we passed the funding target, and more than a third of the way to the first tier unlock.   Let's keep that momentum up and hopefully we can unlock Ripcord by Friday (definitely by the end of the weekend).

Classified vehicles are too big. I will pass.

Too bad I won't get NF Ripcord. I really like NF figs in general. Any backer looking to resell NF Ripcord?

Just keep your eyes open closer to when this gets shipped next year.

Just getting Ripcord shouldn't be too hard and the price shouldn't be too high (hopefully).

Have you tried crate like thses?

At least, this storage can also be part of your dio.

There are so many options out there for storage&display pieces.  That looks like another great option.

However that price is terrible.  $17US plus shipping is too pricey for what I would want. 

I keep looking out for sales to make it worthwhile because I'm already so deep into spending on just toys (lol).

Well......time to unpack this.

Dragonfly.   Kind of expected for the past couple weeks with all the hints.   Still a pretty great showing.



Price - Well colour me impressed that they came in under the HISS for price.  I really didn't expect it to be less than the HISS.  At a minimum the same price.

Base Offering -  I love that they have included pretty much everything (unless they have a surprise for us) right off the bat.  A stand, all the munitions and effect pieces.  The lighting, the working winch, Wild Bill and what-not.   "Chips & Salsa"?  Hilarious, but somewhat true to the real military.   Great start.

Design - Stuck fairly close to the original look (which wasn't a big want for me ahead of the reveal), but with enough tweaks to give it some modern flair.  My favourite is probably the cockpit with the multi-open options.


Paint -  Not a fan of the black on the back/tail.  Would have preferred all green, but I understand why they went with the black to modernize and break up the "wall of green."

Blast Effects -  Not really a "bad" thing per se, but those two giant ones seem like a nightmare for stability and wear/damage over time (look at what happens to other Hasbro products with blast effects left in for a long time).

So far a great start, and a great offering.

Can't wait to see who the other (tier) figures will be. 

Also wouldn't mind if they did a similar offering like the HISS where they had an unlock with a classic canopy.  That way you can make it even more like the original.

The price makes this an easy backing for me, especially since it will cost quite a bit more for me in Canada for all the usual reasons (tax, shipping, exchange rate).

Great job Emily and Lenny (oh and the two Marks  {my namesakes})

DISCLAMER - I hate exclusives.  I fell it kills the hobby.

I just did the same thing, and ordered two flight pods.

I am hoping the artic bat shows up at, as for the target excusives, hopefully TRU, or if they are like the last ones, I saw them warming the pegs in the US, until target put them on clearance.

Arctic BAT is already up for preorder on Gamestop's site.   He will be available at all fan channels and Amazon so it shouldn't be too hard to get.

Today they revealed digital renders for a Crimson Viper and Grunt with an alternate Steel Corps (Brigade) helmet head to make him an army builder!!!  Viper looks good in crimson, and it was a leaked figure so a bit of a surprise.   Although I think it was all but a certainty that Hasbro was going to do a Crimson Viper eventually.   

Can't wait for Monday to see what the Haslab is going to be (even though everyone already seems to agree it will be the Dragonfly).

Well they definitely got off to a fast start with Yo Joe June.

They had an unannounced video go up on Youtube yesterday morning.   They announced preorders for the Arctic BAT, PP Crimson Guard, TF Dusty and the Televiper/Flight Pod.

Arctic BAT looks great and is a fan channel/Amazon exclusive.   So it should be fairly easy to get.

PP Crimson Guard / TF Dusty should be TRU exclusives like all the previous TF/PP releases.

TeleViper/Flight Pod is a Hasbro Pulse exclusive so we are screwed in Canada.  I am a stupid sucker and put in a preorder and it was EXPENSIVE!!!!  It worked out to $106Cdn for a single set, and that is after I ordered 2!!!!  If you order just one, it is even higher. 

Man talk about a kick in the nads.  However I guess I can't say I am too mad since I was crazy enough to pay even more to get the Serpentor/Air Chariot exclusive.   So I guess going forward they think $100Cdn is the bench mark for a figure/vehicle set exclusive.   TERRIBLE!!!

Also the next livestream is Monday and it looks like they will be revealing the Haslab then.
