    I’ve always wanted JG1 series to be in English so if that I happened I’d absolutely freak out lol. Also a big dragonball fan so having Vegeta in transformers is great to me lol. I don’t think that’s what’s happening but with him being here I feel like it has to be something Voice actor related?

    Watch him be voicing Star Saber in whatever the next Netflix series is....

    Personally I prefer the dubbed Victory toon idea.

    It'd be cool, but dunno if they'd announce that before announcing the toyline.

    Cool that we got color pics, but what do Vegeta and his voice actor have to do with this?

    Between Ichigo (Bleach), Zero (Marvel vs. Capcom 3/Infinite), and Nero (DMC4/5), he does have a bit of history playing anime swordsmen.

    I dunno, too brash-sounding for a stoic leader-type, though.

    To be honest, it would be nice to have professionals voicing these series, but it wouldn't fix the crappy writing.

    Apparently no one was listening to his podcast - Sabat said he was a fan of anime - that Transformers & specifically Victory is an anime & he was a child with Transformers. He is a fan of the franchise from his childhood, centered in a different segment of a field that is of Japanese culture. He was a perfect choice to reach out into a different segment of the marketplace & churn up interest from people who would not normally have ever paid attention to Transformers - to be suddenly inspired with a new purchase, this being a Japanese product, that influences other potential buyers.

    Basically - you wanna sell toys - you reach out into the toy market, not just into your own market, to maximize your potential dollars. Marketing 102 - not something Hasbro is known for but, maybe they are slowly learning.

    Spot on. You have to go where your customers are, not sit in a corner and whine about why nobody is finding you.

    All of this "Why is HE talking about this?" just feels like another ridiculous purity test that uppity fans use to put people down. The simple truth of the matter is that HasLab got a sizable bump in backing today, and the color renders were probably a huge reason for that, but there's a good chance that anime fans who didn't know about this also helped.

    Also, Sabat just acknowledged the thing that everyone wanted him to:

    As much as I dislike Chris Sabat and the funi dub crew for what they did to my boy Vic Mignona, the guy is pretty talented and ill welcome a dub of any form of professionalism.

    Probably not the place to discuss that.
