I like purple the most (just bc it's different from what we have and it's a cool exclusive), but the all-black with red logo might look best in the gunner's spot. Tough decision! Blue looks great too, if you're not bored of blue Cobra figures by now.

Here's a great image from Hisstank for reference (they're doing an unofficial poll):

Honest question I hope someone would ask is, how many backers on a Haslab would it take to drop the price?

That'll never happen. Galactus sold like gangbusters at the end, and it didn't drop. But I didn't expect it to.

I'm sure that would never happen. In fact, the more backers this thing gets, the more it affirms the $299 price point. Hell, they may be kicking themselves for not charging $349 considering how well it's doing.

I do believe this may have been asked of a past Haslab and the team basically said they'd never set the precedent of lowering the price during funding because backers would expect it of every Haslab that came after. (It could also just be from comments in a forum somewhere, but it's right.)

That’s not how these work. The best we could hope for would be additional, unplanned items beyond the 4 tiers being added but they won’t be lowering the price at all. It’s just more profit for Hasbro and more belief in the brand so they’re more willing to try new ‘expressions’ as they call them. We could potentially see some $100 type vehicles at retailers where before they couldn’t go beyond motorcycle sets. Even though it won’t change the price with this item, it could help make other items possible and potentially have lower price points bet they can make and sell more of them than they might have been able to before.

I'd buy 4-pack of those figures, but if I had to choose, black with red helmet is first with purple a very close second.

I just think the black and red one would be lost sitting in a black and red tank. Like, it matches thematically, but would you even be able to see him?

I'm guessing blast effects for tier 3. I hope a launching effect plugs to the missile racks.

The Purple first. Because could be techno-tactician and be apart of the techno-viper corps,

My second choice is the Blue. Have them be lesser grade driver to the red (who who would become my tactician).

I had the same thought about tactician. He’s in the Techno-Viper group as his tactics are definitely defined by the technology they use. I guess it could be blue too to tie to the Tele-Vipers… The troopers are blue and red. I still think purple.

If tier three was a slew of missile launching effects and guns blasting that would be sweet! It is basically two molds just repeated. Makes sense. The blast effects can work for the gun that will be the fourth tier as it can be towed.

I’d be happy with those. I feel the community will be disgruntled if another figure wasn’t offered.

Thwipp!

Seeing those side-by-side pics just reaffirms my choice of the black/red helmet look. I think it stands out the best against the HISS Driver.

I could go for the purple, or the blue, but the colours are too muted in these pics. Maybe they'll be brighter in the actual vote photos, but for now they are too subdued. Brighten them up some and I could be swayed to one of them.

However for now it is still black/ red helmet for me.

Have they already started polling for the Tactician?
