If those two somehow combine.. OMG.. I'll need a boxer change..
Some of those accessories are probably D4toys store-exclusive.
We need a transforming version of this yesterday. Hasbro, Takara, unofficial, whatever. I WILL BUY THIS
I find the Western style (like the one Hasbro pumping out lately) crude and boring. The eastern design like the Jpn one tend to be more stylish and streamline.. but whatever rocks ur boat man
They definitely are more stylish and streamlined, I have to agree. It's just not what I'm into. I have a tolerance, to an extent, but the last thing I need is to go balls to the wall with something I absolutely know I'll back on in a year and kick myself for getting.
I still would love to get this star saber if it was more muted color wise. I think that would help me find a middle ground worth buying it for.
From Flame Toys on Facebook:
Thanks for moving this to the proper thread, @Black Convoy. I tried, but I couldn't find it.
Hey Flame Toys, more Transformers, less Gundam, OK? thanks.
Hmm, well it may not transform, but I wonder if it
splits in half right down the center
As much as I love the figure now, for some reason the sword is like 'eh' do it for me. I dunno I think the sword with the smaller blade in the comics fit the design more imo.
if it wasnt $300 i would have gotten it but ill just stick to gundams
Why are you Gundam racist?
I mean, I assume there's a handful of fans in the middle of the Gundam/TF Venn Diagram who are like "fu** yeah!!!!", but to me, and I feel like a lot of other people reading these comments, this is so far up on the Gundam meter it just feels "wrong." As a piece of art/object, it looks pretty nice/clean/cool/etc, but it just doesn't really do enough justice to either brand to warrant a purchase... IMO.
This looks gorgeous! I wish I could afford it though....
Love how people are still upset over the gundam esc part when that was how he was drawn. Don't like it? Leave one comment, don't leave 10 bashing milne or anybody else. It's not going to change the fact that this is going to be released to the public. Also people have stated that the guy that designed the original star saber from victory designed various gundams before.
I didn't get drift because I was stupid and thought it wouldn't sell out immediately after release.
I didn't get tarn because his design is too bulky and disproportionate compared to how he was drawn.
But this? This I can get behind.
Just need to rob a few banks on my way to preordering this guy.
Gorgeous! Can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Btw, I just found a way to afford this. I cancelled 4 other crappy figures I didn’t need. Easy. Done.
You know if there is a market for a $300 Star Saber surely is a market for a $50 Star Saber.
Hasbro has to approve every figure that gets made, this is licensed which means it got approved, which means they think there is a market for this. So where the fuck is my leader class Star Saber?
It’s beautiful. And considering how much other brand high end figures are, and that it’s not a mainstream character, this whole line is remarkable. I mean I won’t buy the f-ing thing but like so many other recent reveals, I’m glad this exists.
