    Well today is defiantly a good day, after having to endure waiting all weekend due to a postal screw up I finally got this package, and since this is no run of the mill haul I thought it deserved its own thread.

    Well for me these 2 toys have been a long time coming (yes I’m fully aware I got and posted Star Saber a week or two ago but these 2 go together so….). Been wanting to get my hands on a decent set of these guys for what seems to be forever now but something always seemed to get in the way (mostly money, the costly nature of these guys, and keeping up with the main TF lines) but now there finally mine, MINE! Bwhahahaha.

    Needless to say it’s been worth the wait. Both these sets are in excellent condition with little to no ware, both have unused sticker sheets, excellent inserts, and great boxes (Star Saber in near flawless). Most importantly both toys are in superb condition, Star Saber is virturally case fresh in terms of the toy and Victory Leo isn’t far behind.

    To make this haul even better I got both Star Saber and Victory Leo for a great price as well without breaking the bank. With Star Saber I got him off eBay for only $180 US plus $30 for shipping. With Victory Leo I managed to snag it from a Japanese dealer for 25,000 Yen shipped (about $210 US).

    And with that I also want to give a special shout out to 2005’s SydneyY who pointed me to Victory Leo, you rule man cant thank you enough :rock 

    Anyway here are some pictures, these are mostly of Victory Leo (again already posted Star Saber).

    Whole shoot can be found here will be adding more when I have time :D

    It's one thing to get the toys, it's another to find them in the condition you did.

    It maybe but I cant say I blame him, these toys are just so awesome :lol 

    Just transformed Victory Leo into Lion mode and I have to say I am impressed to say the least. His robot mode is awesome but his lion mode is actually better.

    Man I'm happy right now :D 

    Now I just gotta figure out how to get him into Victory Saber.

    got mine about a year and a half ago in the same condition for the same price. ya get the stickers on yet? if these get reissued, it will be the sad story that every expensive transformer I own, save diatlas and his two friends, will have been rereleased. so for that selfish reason, I hope these stay a bastion of vintage collecting.

    That's funny that you should say that, because that's what I think too! :D  Sure, it's selfish, but I (and I'm sure you both too) blew two months of my Army paycheck on VS!
