Yikes that is a disappointing final tier. I can't help but think this was an earlier tier, but because the ML team kept everything fairly secret after Nova it allowed them to move things around. I think Morg, who is an all new mold, was probably the last tier, but they decided to switch it up last minute.


As for the Doom head, I am in the same boat. I had no idea about this, but apparently it is an alternate universe where Doom saved Earth by switching minds with Galactus after Reed failed to stop him. Then he wiped out everything but Earth.


"Meh" is all I can say, but the way things are going it will unlock no problem.

Re: Haslab Projects General Discussion

Before placing an order for Galactus, I have a question for those who have ordered from Hasbropulse before:

Am I reading the shipping policy to Canada correctly in that it says the taxes/duty is being paid upfront?
$485 USD should be my grand total, no more custom charges once Galactus shows up at my door?
So close to pulling the trigger, but the cheapskate in me always stresses about any potential extra costs….

As Super Megatron said.....correct.


The final price is all-in. So once it ships you shouldn't have any other fees/taxes. It should just show up on your doorstep.



I just wish they would take Paypal for preorders. I have a nice little bit in my account, but unfortunately they only take CC for preorders.


Oh and Galactus is now over 25,000. So he beat the Sentinel, but he still has a way to go to beat the Razor Crest. (The current champ for total orders of all the Haslab projects).

Re: Haslab Projects General Discussion

Thanks guys. That’s what I figured, but I’ve always been a glass half empty person, so I wanted to ask in case how I interpreted what I read on Hasbropulse was too good to be true…

And canprime, thanks x2

Re: Haslab Projects General Discussion

Galactus, Galactus, Galactus, Galactus, Galactus.


Man Haslab is going into overdrive this quarter.


3 projects (Galactus, Victory Saber and the soon to be started Rancor).



2 projects should (hopefully) ship before the end of the year (Sentinel and Razor Crest).


Now I just need them to slow it down a bit, and get a GI Joe project going as well.

30,784 Damn!!


Highest total number of backers for a Haslab project to date.



Congrats Hasbro, I didn't think it would get this high.

Re: Haslab Projects General Discussion

I have a feeling the Rancor HasLab will be even bigger. In units sold, that is. Hopefully not in physical size…
