Speak of the devil. Nice update
I don't know about anyone else, but since the "unique game piece" is only for the highest-tier backers, I kind of wish that information on it was emailed to them directly instead of being included in a regular update. It's not like anyone except for them will be able to use that piece anyway... Unless it's ever rereleased.
Other than that, congrats on the color approvals!
Like the update... but really don't like the unique game piece for high end backers only. Not saying they don't deserve a special nod... but that really stinks for everyone else. Where is this line drawn by the way? I thought I was going to have a full set of everything in this KS... and now suddenly I don't.
Side note: that unique piece is amazing... really nice work. Just wish I could get one...
That's more or less what I'm saying, though at the same time, since they -did- do it, they should have just kept it hush-hush with the top-tier backers, I think.
I also wish I could have the "unique" piece :(
And now looking back at the original tier descriptions... I see the unique model in the description for the highest tier... I just never knew what that meant until now. Well... guess I can't complain given that... but I can't help feeling disappointed either.
Keep up the good work though Jasco. Happy to see this making good progress!
Looks like that unique piece is going to be one of the rarest Mega Man items right of the gate at only 8 total in the world. Of course, there's only going to be 3 of the resin statues globally. I guess I'll be keeping an eye out on eBay a few years from now lol...
I don't know who's idea it was to make this so elite without even giving people a chance to know it would be an option, and then to announce it to everyone as a sort of positive promotional bit, but surprise this is pretty distasteful to be honest... It feels disrespectful.
@AJ... I at least wish the unique one wasn't one of the coolest ones.... I mean have it be Megaman with a victory pose or something. but megaman flying on rush? Sigh...
Never noticed the unique figure till now. Wouldn't have been able to get it either way, as the tier was too high. Too bad it looks so epic.
Awesome news, thanks for the update!
It's too bad that the coolest piece will only be produced in a run of 8... I'm sure that's a model that many of us would have enjoyed. Oh well.
It looks amazing! It's a bummer that rent, food, car expenses, insurance and clothing took all the money that could have gone to pledge for one ;). How can we all convince you guys to please, please make this available for purchase to your faithful backers? Even at 20-30 dollars I would've plunked down the money for one. It's just too awesome for it to be so exclusive to only those who had the big bucks to put in :(.
I want that mega man piece.
There are MUCH BETTER figures out there folks. Ones you can actually buy. I wouldn't sweat it. This is just another teeny tiny little figurine.
Was this available as an add-on? I don't even remember this was a thing. I thought I had bought a complete playset through the pledge manager / add-ons. Certainly hurt my wallet enough to get enough of everything for a "complete" set
That second Rush does look way better.
Aaron, this is for the $2,000 pledge levels.
...Uh. Well. I suppose I'm in the minority, but Thank You Jasco for at least sharing pics of the high pledge level unique game piece. I mean, that's kinda the point of unique and exclusive. Only a few people in the world get to have it. And they usually have to have paid big to do so. There's an awful lot of exclusive items out there I'd like to have and few that I do. That's life. I'm not disappointed. This Mega Man Rush piece is pretty amazing and I'm glad to at least be able to see it's design.
Wish I could have a copy of it but paying 2000$ for a boardgame, you deserve something special. . And it is indeed
Ugh. If I can't have a full set (like I thought I bought) I guess I will just selling the game. Anyone want to buy an extra copy? I don't like incomplete games.
They haven't shown a final painted version of the "unique" figure yet. Just the untextured model.
And as far as I can tell they make no indication of its color/properties/paintjob, other than "unique"
They could still theoretically appease both ends by giving the high tier backers a gold version of the sculpt, and regular backers a standard painted version (perhaps for sale, or in a later campaign) and violate none of their previous statements, nor any of its uniqueness/exclusivity.
The Gold Version would still be a unique figure. The rest of us, would not feel slighted at missing out on the sculpt/a complete set.
I don't have high hopes they're listening, but just saying.
According to the backer stuff though it's just for that one tier if you look at the main page. Also...last time they had it worked out that thing is going to be 12 inches?!?! Now I really want it. That thing is going to be worth some serious cash.
Snycher, are you thinking of the "Limited Edition Resin Statue of Mega Man"? That's different. I believe this is the "Unique Game Piece".
Yes, @Justin is right, this is not a 12 inch figure! Just a special unique piece for our highest-tiered backers.
Obviously people are entitled to their own opinion, but if you feel that not having one purely aesthetically different piece makes a game incomplete in some way, I would respectfully recommend re-considering your reasons for gaming.
Yeah, saying you're going to give up on the entire game and sell it off because of one little figurine is a bit much.
Oh my mistake.
