OMG! :lol:

They seriously thought adding stands for the blades would save this? Haha wow! It’s like they did the minimum amount possible to show Disney they made their best effort to save it.

What's funny about the backers is it's just a constant back and forth for the same 8-10 backers. It's ridiculous. Just pull the plug at this point. Save face.

Update:


Reva's Lightsaber:

1,314 / 5,000 (+5) Well it hit its' highest number of backers finally, unfortunately that is not saying much. I am kind of likening this to something going down the drain, but is stuck and needs a push to go down.

26.28% funded with 6d 17h left.

What're you talkin' about? Those people come out wearing Star Wars shirts every time! That clearly means they're huge fans and know what they're doing. Just...full on confidence because of those generic Star Wars shirts. It's important.

Unlike the Khetanna and Razor Crest, there's no tie-in merchandise for this saber, which is at best a cosplay accessory, correct? The sail barge had the benefit of decades of figures to populate it and there were figures and a playset available at retail. Mando's ride had a surprising amount of 3 3/4" figures to go with it, especially for a new series.

This role play item has... nothing. No gloves, no belt, no cape; nothing. Not that mass market versions would have helped sell this high-end collectible but I think Hasbro underestimates the value of the tie-ins that helped push previous HasLab to success.

Star Wars = Hero's Journey - Characters - Locations - VEHICLES. Stick with what works.

Wouldn't want to be in that Brand Meeting the day after Haslab ends....

For the 10,000 time... it's Haslab X-Wing time. Easy win for Hasbro and fans. One of the tiers could be proper body for the Dave Filoni /Trapper Wolf headsculpt, but they can officially make it a Carson Teva figure and encourage people to buy multiples so you can use a spare body for the Filoni head.

I may be too deep in the weeds here.... but c'mon. Anything is better than this.

A (finally!) decently-scaled Sandcrawler is the way to go. It's a vehicle that's appeared in the OT, the PT, and on Disney+. It's got lots or room for detailed play features and makes a great display for dozens of figures inside and out. Give it lights, rolling treads, and offer some tie-ins at retail. It's been a while since we've seen Banthas, Dewbacks, and Landspeeders. Heck, bring out an updated Lars Homestead and Anakin's speederbike.

Vehicles that double as playsets are a proven success.

An accurate Sandcrawler at 3 ¾ scale would be 2m long and 1m tall, no chance. Maybe you’d get one ⅓ of the size.

Honestly I think a new Executor bridge/front playset would be cool as hell. But it might not be the most exciting now either.
