Hasbro Adds A Second Tentacle To The Haslab Sentinel As A Thank You For Fully Funding The Project


Jay Cochran - July 20, 2020
We figured it was coming, but Hasbro has now added a second tentacle accessory to their Haslab Marvel Legends Sentinel figure, which means you will get one for each hand. This is being done according to a statement they recently released as a thank you to everyone who quickly funded the project so it met it's minimum backer goal in just over 24 hours.

Whether this will be the last add-on or not remains to be seen. Just the other day in a interview with ShartimusPrime, the Hasbro brand team strongly hinted we could see more stuff added and they were in the process of planning things out and looking at possibilities. This was something they indicated they could take their time with since the project was fully funded so quickly with a fair amount of time left before the campaign ended.

At the time of this posting the project currently has 11,063 backers. You have until August 24 to back the project if you haven't already. See the official statement below:

To all the amazing Marvel Legends fans – THANK YOU for the most uncanny launch week in HasLab history! We were blown away by all the support and did not anticipate the project to be where it stands now after only one week – 100% funded with all 3 tiers unlocked and over 11,000 total backers.

We want to apologize for any confusion around the communication of the tier unlocks. There were a total of 3 planned tiers at 7,000, 8,000 and 9,000 backers. We outlined this during the July 10th reveal and livestream. However, we recognize that the online product page copy was phrased less clearly. At Hasbro Pulse, fans come first. We certainly hope that all Sentinel backers are still as excited as we are, but if any backers are having second thoughts, please refer to the crowdfund cancellation & refund policy. Payments have not yet been processed.

Late last week, the Sentinel crowdfund launched in Europe through Zavvi.com and we are working to finalize plans for additional countries. As a thank you to all the passionate Marvel Legends fans around the world, we are adding a SECOND tentacle accessory to the package. Now each backer of the 26.3-inch tall Sentinel will receive two 18-inch bendy wire tentacle accessories perfect for play or display.

So, what’s next for the next 35 days? We’ll be bringing you behind the scenes content and other development updates to take you on the journey of bringing this mutant-hunting monstrosity to life. Stay tuned!

My point is that they didn'thaveto. 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 retailstores for $59.99-$69.99. or a 22-24' scaled Galactusfor $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.
