Sentinel is also an army builder, there will be collectors buying 2 or more for themselves, which I doubt was a thing with Unicron.
I think this is too exprnsive for most people to armybuild. But there have been a few smaller sentinels before it, and now with the Master Mold head, it's the perfect centerpiece for a pre-existing sentinel army.
We need to hit 6,000 backers to fully fund this project. But we don’t want to stop there. For each 1,000 additional backers, we’ll unlock more marvelous stuff for every single backer. We can’t tell you what those are just yet, but we have big plans…
Transformers tried it with Legends Grand Max offering a pretender shell for the small headmaster made with the Waverider retool of Decoy Cloudburst. The goal wasn't met and the Waverider shell never got made in it's original form either!
This 'tier unlock' business smells fishy to me. Not sure why.
It's typical on crowdfunding platforms to include extras as backer levels increase. Due to economies of scale, larger production runs lower in manufacturing cost and the design phase costs will have been recouped so that extra profit can be put into making the product more inticing in some way.
I like it. I want it. But £350 for one toy of anything is way above my pay grade! It could be possible if I saved up for one over half a year but this requires full payment on August 24th and my income has dropped anyway due to furlough so no chance. Also: need to pay rent!
