    Been looking to get these guys for a long time. 100% complete and mint, unused stickers, paperwork and missles are still on the sprue! Box is a little faded, but I can deal with that. Toys look brand spankin new.

    Woooo!

    I used to have a less-than-mint but still nice Victory Saber. I wish I still did, but I will again, someday.


    Awesome find, I love that fig.

    Beautiful! I remember the first time I combined those 2; I just sat there looking at Victory Saber, thinking "Good GOD. I am NEVER going to regret buying these 2..." And I never have!
    One thing, though; if you decide to sticker them do yourself a favour and get the Reprolabels. They're actually better quality than the originals IMO.

    I remeber picking my first set up at the first Botcon. It was an awesome toy to set up. I thought the Brainmaster was a cool update on the whole Headmaster thing as it was just fun to push the chest door shut and watch his head move up into position.

    I'd love to see these two get some Encore love.

    I was thinking of getting reprolabels to use instead of the ones that came with the toy but they are more expensive than I thought they'd be. Also my one experience with reprolabels was not very favorable. It took almost a month for my ML Soundwave stickers to get to me.

    If you think they're nicer than maybe I'll grab em. These figs are indeed awesome. I don't think I've ever had this much fun setting up a toy. Victory Leo might be my most favorite toy ever.

    I was playing with that gimmick half of last night :D  I showed it to my wife so many times eventually she just stopped paying attention and said "that is cool honey.".

    I don't mind, it's public knowledge! I bought it for $635 shipped which I thought was a good price. I saw one at Botcon last year for $850, the front of the box was nicer because there was no sun-fading, but I figure that can't be a $200 difference. I
    offered $750 for that one but he didn't take it. I know it sold but not for how much.


    Thanks for the comments guy, I haven't had this much fun with a fig since Star Convoy.

    Tremendously impressive- this is one item that could certainly use a reissue.
