    Spychangers should absolutely be Deluxes if they did them in Legacy.

    That should have zero effect on how big modern Spychangers are.

    No, it's that Fire Convoy in his normal mode isn't tall at all. The difference in size between Fire Convoy and Wild Ride is the same difference in size between ER Prime and Siege Hound.

    There's a few cartoon characters that need an update, but quite a list of late-G1 non-show toys to still hit

    It brings a smile to my face to see this is nearly halfway fund on the first day, and the day isn't over yet.

    Let's aim to demolish the funding goal AND both tiers, so they can reveal what must be a hidden 3rd tier!!!

    Well. Will they do RID 2001 Megatron/Gigatron. I feel 10 mode is the gimmick that would be good thing with some hurts.

    According to Evan, Prime does have a waist, which means Omega does. But UM does NOT, due to transformation and stability.

    Is it actually likely they'll add more tiers if we make the first two?

    Yeah, spy changers could be a cost saver and that they all have very simple engineering. Basically do combiner wars cars without the ports, and you’re done. One of the great things about that show is everything was so toy accurate in the cartoon. So nothing should really be that crazy to transform

    they'll probably follow up this haslab with megatron/gigatron...this thing seems like it'll be a big success so I can see them making a counterpart like the 2 victory haslabs.

    now this leads to a problem as we can't get a galvatron/devil gigatron since the theoretical megatron/gigatron will have 6 alt modes...

    maybe some armor that comes with it so he can upgrade into galvatron, do the 4 other alt modes, and be worth a price similar to deathsaurus without random crap being thrown in? idk just my thoughts...

    Firstly I will say Good for RID fans who actually want this figure! But I will also say that this will be the first TF Haslab that I will not be backing. I literally bought 6 Deathsaurus. However RID has no place in my G1 and JG1 Collection. Hoping to see more Victory TF Haslabs in the future.

    I just need two things.

    The Ostrich Mode and its ability to combine with Omega.

    The eh hit those two things? The rest will be 10/10 for sure lol.

    I would actually love simplistic Deluxe Spychangers. They could even share all the same internal parts and engineering for most if not all of them. And they have a lot of repaint potential.

    I was exited for this even if I had to pay the roughly $400 AUD the last few have been but since Hasbro can't be bothered directly selling it here, the local partners EBgames/Zing are majorly price gouging it.
    It's $750 AUD(PS5 and series X are both $799), that's $490 USD. Absolutely crazy and unjustifiable, definitely going to reconsider buying anything from EB and potently even Hasbro as the base prices have been creeping up every few waves.
    In the end while it looks great and blows most of their recent stuff out of the water, I'm just disappointed and firmly believe that all the Haslabs other than Unicron should of been commanders.(victory leo could have even been a leader)
    Haslab is a mistake that's just shortsightedness on Hasbro's part.

    Nah fans hobbies version is exactly the same height as a Masterpiece Optimus prime at the head, and Both omega prime and super mode Optimus prime are taller than victory saber Who is about a head taller than Optimus. So if you want a Scourge that can stand head to head with super mode Optimus and not look like he’d get the crap kicked out of him, that’s not a bad option. One thing about has labs is that they’re really big. Unit Cron was so big we almost didn’t have a frame of reference for how much space it actually took up. Victory saber was about as big as I expected it to be (I think in retrospect the consensus will be that victory saber, while very good, is likely to be the least impressive TF haslab offering when all is said and done), but Deathsaurus dwarfs the masterpiece leaders and wouldn’t look bad on a masterpiece shelf himself. I suspect it will be the same with these two.
