I had no intention on backing this (I cant see ever backing a haslab), but when they announced this, so many were trying to see how to get it to $300.00. I thought, why would that be, why not be more reasonable at $200.00? Well boy was I wrong.

And of course its clear why. Once hasbro saw that they could get fans to back these projects at the prices they were, that $300.00 wasn't going away. Besides the HISS tank had just made record time.

Thing is, that was a tank, and has so many more features and uses than this does (I still think even that is overpriced, but there is so very much there, its not overpriced by much. That thing is sweet). Asking $350.00 for this is just outrageous. Holding Mephisto out there like some hostage, is outrageous as well, and it looks like fans are expressing themselves. Bottom line, they could've handled this so much better.

They aren't free, but the reason why say making Mephisto the early bird as some have suggested wasnt practical is because it was a totally new figure unlike the Human Form figure. So that added a lot more expense to the bottom line and hence they needed 3k additional backers on top of the 9k. The larger the production run of something the cheaper it is for them to make it. So when they add an expense with the new figure they then need to increase the production run to essentially offset that additional expense.

Absolutely, and I understand all that, but you gotta admit that price was by no means justified by anything or any part of this package. Yes, Mephisto would incur additional production but what I'm saying is it should have been part of the set from the begining. Let's not pretend that it wouldn't have made up for it in the end. Plus they have a way of getting plenty of re-use out of most of the new molds they create and this body mold is fairly non-distinct so I'm guessing they could use this for a number of characters. There was very little for them to lose to make him part of the product. They could have just advertised it using the mock up art and wouldn't even have put it into production, just like the Hellcharger, until if funded. Like I keep saying, there just isn't enough here to convince me to pull the trigger (again). Had anyone told me from the start that the plan was just this, even including the swap heads, I would have split my side laughing. Even when they started dropping the clues I remember thinking there's no way this Haslab is ONLY gonna be Robbie and the Hellcharger, for sure it will be a Robbie/Danny 2-pack. Even at that I figured it would be around $300. Mephisto should have been just part of the set to begin with. Whoever convinced themselves they could sell this thing just with the things that are in it now must have been on some serious substances.

Exactly, so what are they gonna do with the actual figure that, as you pointed out, was more or less worked into the original price because they more or less assumed the Early Bird was gonna be met? As a matter of fact, at that price we can probably assume pretty much all the other tiers were covered as well. Not like they're really giving us anything for free. While they're trying to look like they are standing strong and maintaining confidence in the project and not fully giving in to fan demand, a strategy I believe they acquired from Big Daddy Disney, they just come off looking really desperate while also being really cheap in the process and, as I pointed out earlier, completely out of touch with the pulse (pun intended) of the general fanbase.

The head allows them to say, look you still have a human figure to go with the normal looking car but it also makes them look bad because you have to wonder why they just didn't throw in the second figure since that cost had already been included to the $350 at 9k backers. I suppose the reason was so they can say they didn't go back on what they said about extending the Early Bird deadline but still its not great optics on a campaign that has already generated a lot of negative feelings among their consumer base.

Well it seems to be working.

I wouldn't go quit that far. The counter isn't currently going down but its not doing any kind of major rebound either. It's added a whole 39 new backers since the head was announced. If I was Hasbro I wouldn't be jumping for joy that the campaign has been saved.

While the campaign still has a month to go, at it's current pace, sooner or latter the perception that there is little chance any of the stretch goals will end up being included will grow, which in turn is going to make it so less and less people feel its worth backing and/or people decide to start canceling their orders again.

LO effin' L. This is pathetic. This, this is what they think we wanted? Out of touch, anyone? Give me a break. Not only should this have been included from the jump but Mephisto should have been included. Keep your $5 throw in Hasbro. The thing is still about $100 too heavy and people are getting fed up with your act. Will this move the needle? Probably. Will it be enough to get this thing over the hump? No freaking way. I'm holding on to my funds till that big, red demon is part of the deal.

I was thinking that adding a human head was the obvious solution. I'm glad they did that.

I swear, if this dinky little head is all it took to convince people to buy this thing I am at a loss for words. It's too little, too late and still costs too much.

Really don't want to set a precedent here for them to think giving us (a piece of) what should be part of the base product is enough to justify the cost. And you know this will all be spun as "You spoke and we listened" bullshiz PR.

I wouldn't assume that this saved the HasLab or the removal of Robbie killed it, since even with the numbers going down, it was still at over halfway, and many HasLabs that succeeded were not at that many backers by this same time in the campaign. Remember, the vast majority of projects like this (includint HasLabs) get the vast majority of their backers in the first and (especially) last 48 hours. Had they not done this or anything similar and just left it civilian-Robbie-less, I would say there was still a pretty decently high likelihood the campaign would succeed, but maybe just like barely. The addition is definitely improving the chances but it still may well not make it very far past the base level of success.

TL;DR: the removal of civilian Robbie lost a lot of backers, but they probably were not the majority of people (currently or total by the end) willing to back it. As overpriced as this is, there are still such a large number of people who might want something like this that statistically there's probably a statistically-small-yet-gross-numerically-large portion for whom price is not much of an object and can get the project to succeed.

An alternate human Robbie Reyes head, you gotta give hasbro some credit for having a backup plan, Whatever works to get the Engine of Vengeance Haslab project going, and the Mephisto figure to go with it.
