Yes but they've given the game away now. We knew the overseas orders were to be added but they've played their trump card early.
I can only think they're working on the 'more people will back it if they think it's going to fund' angle.
Which is the angle they should have played from the beginning. Its one thing to think about buying something if it gets made and another to know something is coming and having to decide if you want it.
I suppose I should watch the video but by overseas orders are they on about Takara Tomy or BBTS/TFexpress etc? Or both. If both thats a pretty low number. If just TT its not much better. If its BBTS etc when did they suddenly become "Affiliated Retailers"? I mean I know they have connections with Hasbro, but isn't this the first time Hasbro have acknowledged or pointed out that people outside of North America and Japan do having buying options and not just that, but that they are kind of official.
Surely thats something they should have had organised from the start, now it just feels like a last minute panic.
