Haslab Sentinel Pre-Orders Open Up At Zing Pop Culture For Australian Collectors

Haslab Sentinel Pre-Orders Open Up At Zing Pop Culture For Australian Collectors


Jay Cochran - July 19, 2020
For you readers in Australia, Eddy sends word that the Australian online etailer Zing Pop Culture which appears to be a subsidiary of EBGames is now taking pre-orders for the Haslab Marvel Legends Sentinel figure from Hasbro.

The figure there is listed with a $699 price tag, which we are told is a fairly comparable Australian price to the $350 it costs us here in the US on the Haslab website. To pre-order it there however, they are requiring a $200 deposit. Here in the US the figure has reached its funded goal and will definitely be moving forward into production. As I type this, the campaign currently has 10971 backers. Folks have until August 24th here in the US to back the project if you haven't already.

The first original three unlockable add-ons have also been greenlite which includes the Master Mold alternate head, battle damaged alternate head with hand and the female 6" Sentinel Prime action figure.

Hasbro has made strong indications that we can expect to see additional add-on tiers added to the project sometime before the campaign ends in August, so we expect the pot to be sweetened even more than it is now before all is said and done.

As we reported before, for those who live in the UK, you can pre-order this figure at the etailer Zavvi for £349.99.

My point is that they didn't have to.  They broke their goal by 6k on the back of the final tier (and people waiting until the last minute).  Since 25% of the total buyers tagged in at the last minute, I'm doubting yet another tier would have made much of a difference.People got what they paid for with this one...

Of course they didn't have to. My point was that with that many backers it would have been nice if more tiers were added as a thank you to the fans. It could have been something simple as an extra of each of the prime sentinels. Or a blast effect that would port in the hand the same way as the tentacle.

I would agree that they could put something like this together once/year.  But, for me, and many other collectors this was a huge purchase.  Both literally and financially.  And the Sentinel is such an iconic Marvel/X-Men character, there are probably very few others that would generate this level of interest.  Galactus comes to mind but I suspect that, if they wanted to do him justice, he'd be twice as large and cost twice as much.  That said, I wouldn't fork out even more money for another size of Giantman.  I wouldn't pay more for a Sasquatch that's slightly taller than the BAF I already paid plenty for.  The DOFP Sentinels were flawed technically with some design issues--keep in mind these were also up to 50% off multiple times as well.Honestly, they just hit the nail on the head with this in every way.  And the fact that there won't be 10 times as many of these in circulation is the icing on the cake.  This wasn't about variety, it was about it being sizeable, accurate to original designs that fans grew up with and limited supply.  Take out any one of those factors and it the sales will suffer.

By "DOFP" Sentinels, I don't mean the crap "24 phrases,  light up eyes" version. I'm taking bout Hasbro make accurate comic based John Byrne versions in 16" scale. 732472365_Sentinelsdays-of-future-past.thumb.png.5c376c6a8d7750250f37380609907858.png

And with 24 hours left would have been a perfect time to drop something awesome at a 20,000 tier.

It took me awhile to decide if I was willing to drop the coin on this, because I DID keep comparing it in my mind to a Transformer Titan.  It seemed like it should be a lot cheaper in comparison.

But then I thought: a Transformer, while made of more parts, is mostly hollow.  A Marvel Legend is solid in the arms and legs.  There's probably a LOT more (expensive) plastic in there...

Not really,  the most expensive part of toy production is molding,  so the more parts and engineering needed, the more expensive it is to make, hence the desire to reuse molds and parts. Look at Unicron compared to a standard Titan, it's only 4 inches taller but was nearly 4 times the price.

I wouldn't go that far as to do 12 a year. As I have said countless times, why they haven't done something like the Transformers Titan Class is insane. An annual roughly 2 foot tall character for roughly $150, would make sense and allow them to do quite a few figures and would be easy on people's budget.

Sorry, this just proved what I've been saying for quite some time bout Hasbro doing a "Giant characters of the Marvel universe " line of characters that range in the 10" - 24" scale. If over 22,500+ people were willing to fork over $350 for 1 single over sized figure, Imagine how many would have bought 16" scaled classic DOFP Sentinels at retail stores for $59.99-$69.99. or a 22-24' scaled Galactus for $75. A scale accurate 10' tall Sasquatch with alternate heads/ hands for $49.99, 16'  Pym Goliath/ Giantman. Bill Foster Goliath, Orka, Erik Josten Goliath, 10' Champion, Titanium man, Watcher, Stranger. 

 

They could do a 3 character wave per quarter for a total of 12 "Giant/ large" characters for the yr.

Decided to give in and backed it by buying one. Wish Hasbro had added more tiers though. Only one extra added at 16,000 when the number of backers was around 13,000. Seems they could have added more tiers since they ended up with over 22,000 backers.

5,000 of them cam in within the last 24 hours.
