Well, the Khetanna is going to be made then: https://www.hasbrolab.com/
Thanks to a very large late surge in buyers, the order count has shot up by nearly 1000 just today alone, and currently stands at close to 5,400. There's still 3 days left before the deadline, so who knows what the final total will be? I'm now hoping it goes as high as possible, as anyone still hoping to order one through Dark Side Toys will be disappointed as they have stopped taking any more orders. The hopes of non-US/Canadian collectors wanting one of these are therefore now wholly pinned on the 'small extra number' Hasbro have said they will make in addition to the HasLab website orders (which is apparently going to be the one and only way to get hold of one from Hasbro in the US and Canada), and which will be available in foreign markets. Hasbro haven't given any indication of how many the 'small extra number' will actually be, but it's reasonable to assume if their HasLab target of 5,000 is greatly exceeded, they may have more confidence in manufacturing a few more than they otherwise might have for those irrelevant countries that aren't the USA or Canada.
I must say, I think this whole process has been mishandled by Hasbro from start to finish, with non-domestic collectors being royally shafted. Yes, we might have a crack at owning one later down the line if we're lucky enough to get our hands on one of the 'small extra number' being made, but it wouldn't have killed Hasbro to put a mechanism in place whereby we could all have guaranteed ourselves one, like our US and Canadian friends can. Hasbro would have guaranteed themselves more sales, and we the customers would have been happy. As it is, even if we do manage to find one for sale over here next year, I don't doubt the price will be disproportionately higher than the US one!
I dislike crowd-funding for these types of products anyway, but when they're from very large and wealthy companies for extremely expensive, highly limited items like the Khetanna, Hasbro are simply slapping their foreign customers full in the face and showing us just how little we actually mean to them.
I'll still try to get a Khetanna next year, but I don't think I'll be holding my breath
