    The diecast would just make the foot into a fulcrum point unless the toes by themselves were heavy enough to counterbalance the weight of the backpack.
    But yeah, I wish we knew what Takara's plans were for this guy.

    Combined mode is and will always be silly looking to me.

    I'd have been more than happy with an mp scale Victory Leo with extra parts for combined mode as a separate armour kit.

    I'll never combine the two, hopefully the main robot does not suffer for it.

    This could be the quickest 3P reveal to release ever :D

    Big boots or not this is exactly what I have been hoping for. This takes the already good Star Saber release to a whole new level. For me Victory Saber has always had this epic super robot feel to him and this hits every mark for me. This is the first KFC product I have seen that actually has me truly excited since Apollyon. Please be of good quality that's all I ask!

    Someone is going to have to talk into the extra large heel/foot sticking out of the back of combined mode being acceptable...

    :lol  No, more likely is Hisashi Yuki's now going

    "Fffffffffff......fu*k"

    I know TT probably anticipated this, but probably didn't think someone would do it so quickly. I would guess it will probably be another 6 months to a year before we see a TT prototype, though.


    The yellow seems off to me... was thinking it should be a bit more orange. Also a bit disappointed how thin and tiny the combined mode toes are.

    Oh it is straight up G1. This character is as desired as Star Saber himself was and he got an MP. I can't imagine too many who wanted Star Saber weren't interested in his "final form." KFC may not have done a good enough job designing this though... and people may wait for another option.

    Seriously WTF is up with the huge bricks on the back of his feet. YIKES.

    this may look more interesting for the stand alone toy, not combined mode.

    This is what I'm concerned about the most. On my copy the tolerances aren't the greatest and I could see this turning into a floppy mess like xovergen trailer force set. And there really is way too much heel. As much as I want a victory leo, I'll definitley have to wait and see if bot mode is good and even if I buy it, if TT does one and better, this one will be sold in an instant.

    KFC themselves said a 1 - 2 month wait.
    I'll be waiting longer than that though as this doesn't really cut it for me.
    The fact it's KFC puts me off a bit too.
