    Thanks dude,

    It's kind of a 'coming back around thing for me'. When I got my first real job during Grad School I bought myself a Victory Leo in very similar conidition for $250 (mint, no stickers applied etc). Now that I'm settled and happy in a job I decided to complete the set.

    It seems like forever ago when spending that $250 was just an agonizing decision. :)

    If you wanted the item and thought it was worth spending your money on.
    Then it was worth it.

    Also, MIB, stickers unapplied complete.

    Sounds good. :wink:

    Hell of a nice feeling, ain't it? :) 
    One thing, however: don't use the unused stickers if you can help it; for a start, they're hella old and probably won't stick as well. When I got my hands on a MIB Star Saber with unapplied stickers (you paid pretty much exactly the same as me, BTW. Nice one!) I used Reprolabels on him. I don't regret it at all.

    Confirming what Draven said here. This came up in another thread - I used an unapplied sticker sheet for Big Powered, and really regret it. They don't stick well at all, and I've ruined an unused sticker sheet. If they had stuck well, I wouldn't have cared about ruining the sticker sheet.

    I have a MISB Star Saber and MISB Victory Saber that I'll be cutting open here one day, and I'm definitely just getting some reprolabels instead.

    Congrats! I got a sealed one (though with a 2-3" rip at the box corner) off eBay about a year and a half ago. He's definitely awesome.

    Still haven't been able to convince myself to apply his labels. I may go the Repro route, too....

    Usually I buy my TFs for the characters first and the toys second, but Star Saber may be the sole exception to that. He just looks too damn cool.

    All I got is the RobotMasters Victory Saber :/

    Unless, of course, someone at Takara blows a fuse and they decide to reissue the damn thing.
