    Would you like to have him in Universe 3.0 as an original mold or a remolded repaint? Someone said Energon Megatron would be great for that. I say the Cybertron Evac mold.


    Also, is it me , but can Animated Wingblade Optimus be retooled as an Animated Star Saber?

    I'd prefer an Encore release with Victory Leo

    I'd just like to find all the parts to complete the one I have. Especially the brainmaster and jet nose.

    Wings, shoulder cannons and a melee weapon do not a likeness make.

    They're distinctly different toys.

    The novelty of Victory Saber is that it's big and somewhat scarce.

    If it gets an Encore release, one of those two factors will be compromised.

    Why pass it up when all you need to do is remold the head, give him a sword, and reapint him?

    Just watch. Someone will do that once the toy is out.

    I called it.

    there are no similarities. the Armor was based off the God bomber armor that belongs to ginrai. i would perfer a encore with victory saber (who is ginrai lol) or a new mold

    i know right? seriously, i don't know how many people keep seeing homages that aren't there. they keep saying the armor was a homage to this prime and that, when it is clearly a homage to the God Bomber armor

    And who says that scarcity is what makes a toy? I don't know about you, but I judge a toy based on its aesthetics and playability, and Star Saber seems to have that in spades.

    Not saying that you came off this way, but I'm kind of sick of elitists on their high horse who like an item just because its rare. You're in the wrong hobby if you're collecting to hoard and then sell later based on its aftermarket value. Reissues are good for everyone, because they allow fans to get older, expensive figures at a reasonable price point. Who cares if they hurt the secondary market?
