    Thanks for the info. If he's unsure then who knows? Hopefully Conran is correct about the side project angle & they will still be releasing Victory Leo sometime in the future. I would LOVE to have that guy next to their Star Saber!

    Same here, their Star Saber's aesthetic is awesome. Having a similarly styled Leo would be fantastic.

    ...nothing about Haslab's Star Saber looks better than what Iron Trans released.

    I also love IronTrans IR-V01 because it weighs a ton.
    I picked up a second one just in case.

    It looks like a great start. But stability for Victory Saber would be a real issue.

    I know it's a big ask, but any chance of a pic with Leo in lion mode next to IT Star Saber (not in combined mode)?

    Just curious if the aesthetic would work or if it's too far off.

    Victory Leo, even the KFC version, is very boxy. G1 Star Saber is boxy as well. IT is too stylised to marry that style.

    well i took out my mp starber and simba out cos i think I could do more pose than Iron trans did with his arm issue. It did flop abit but the good dab of kiki on those joints help stiffen the joints up. It feels much better. I missed ATP upgrades but for now kiki helps alot

    Different markets despite being the price of an MP figure. I have MP Starsaber but never got around to getting Victory Leo, and I couldn’t find this third party version at the time I was looking as it was literally just starting to come out.

    What QC does the Iron Trans version have?

    hes bicep cut is just under the shoulder pads. If you were to move the bicep it has to be below the shoulder pads. If you were to move arms outwards and at the same time move the bicep depending which way you move it the bicep gets restricted because the inner shoulders will block its way. So i cant realy get much posses to his arms like how i wanted it. It gets frustrating. Reminds me of generation toys optimus prime.

    Personaly i hate this arm and shoulder design. Looks great but not much playability.

    How sure are we that IronTrans is no more? I mean SS was release only last year in April during the pandemic. Maybe it's just the usual 3p silence? Perhaps they're trying to figure out where they should put the lion head when in combined mode(I'm sure that tiny gap on StarSaber's chest will be the attachment point for the Lion head, similar to Flametoy's design)?

    Already preordered Leo. I'm not worried, but they really should communicate more.

    Most likely on hold until HasTak gets it out of their system. Probably don't want to go head-to-head as a third party.
