    Every time I hear lion head in the chest, my mind goes to Daltanious.

    Maybe this will be made into a model kit like Drift, a cheaper version would be nice for people who like the design but don't have $400 to spend for a figure.

    just to clarify I think when most people say GaoGaiGar they are specifically talking about Genesic. due to both having claws on the feet and very "bird" like mechanical wings. And I don't think anyony is saying "ripping off" like they are similar and both well liked people are just happy to see even a small nod to ggg let them be happy. Neither property can claim to be original we all know a sentai robot did the lion chest first.

    This thing continues to look incredible, just wish I could afford it. I might like it even more than the original Victory Saber design. Personally love the GGG influence.

    Wow. A Flame Toys figure that actually transforms? Looks great. Too expensive for me, sadly.

    That looks superb.

    Man it’s so sad that we can’t get actual transforming toys with this kind of aesthetic. Not talking about paint, I mean the sculpt and proportions. Instead of giving us another toon accurate, can we please get more creativity?

    I think it comes full circle, since both God Ginrai and Victory Saber were like the inspiration and influenced the Brave series.

    So this new iteration of Victory Saber is now influenced back by one of it descendants :D

    No kidding. I love the dynamic angles and I don't think that's exclusive to high-end products. Just less totally square limbs and a little more flavour is all I ask, we don't have to go as far as this figure did.

    Well... Victory Leo is a reborn Ginrai, who was a new body for Optimus Prime...

    Well then I guess Optimus's body is giving Star Saber whiskers.
    Although I would question why the next step for fixing someone with the body of Optimus would be a lion, but then again Lio Convoy happened and my thinking is probably overruled by "the rule of cool".

    I REALLY like the look of Victory Saber because it's not just "Star Saber on stilts", but I wish the leg armor/platform bit wrapped around the leg a little more to make it look like armor?

    Listen

    i-it's confusing. Because I guess he becomes Star Convoy after that, right??????

    Well, Prime never inhabits the Powermaster body that Ginrai uses in the Japanese continuity. At the end of Masterforce Ginrai and all the other human-piloted transtectors come to life as full Transformers. It's that Ginrai who then is destroyed in Victory and rebuilt into Victory Leo.

    In Japanese continuity Prime goes from alive, to dead, to alive again, to dead again, to Star Convoy.

    Did he eventually turn into the bloodthirsty Bayformers Prime? Knowing the convoluted nature of Japanese TF continuity.. it's not impossible lol :confused: :confused: :confused:
