    Let's not talk about the Golden Disk Collection, which should be released around that time

    Star Saber doesn't have 1/10th of the reach and mass appeal of Unicron, however.

    I may be interested in this but it will depend on how it looks and the final price. Design looks cool but honestly don't want to pay more than $200 for a character I have no attachment to from a show I've never seen before. I just like cool combining Transformers.

    That's what I think the biggest hurdle would be, getting people to spend way more than a Commander or Titan figure for a character they're unfamiliar with. Like Unicron was hella expensive, but he's UNICRON. He's huge and legendary across Transformers lore.

    I do wish I could've gotten Unicron but that one was out of my budget. Want this next Haslab to succeed though so they keep doing Transformers ones and hopefully get to something I really love that isn't $600

    Also, I get that its a Con exclusive, but I feel like $45 for the Ravage set is a little much for a retool of a deluxe and a G1 cassette reissue

    Best way I've seen IDW Star Saber described is "Cool-ass design, interesting idea, piss-poor execution to the 11th degree".
    I'm sure it will draw complaint cause his Alex Milne design is awesome (and the best SS design imo), but with WFC going the whole "G1 cartoon accuracy" it would just be them setting themselves up for disappointment.

    There'll probably be like only 3 people who actually complain, but it'll devolve into typical transformers fan tribalism like most things on this site.
    There'll also probably be people complaining about Victory Leo, either cause of the combination being bland if they don't change it, or people bitching about it being inaccurate (even if they never even seen the show) if they do change it to actually be good.

    My concern here is that Hasbro will ask for 3rd Party prices and we\'ll get something that\'s on the same level as a commander class. I really don\'t want to shell out 150 for a CHUG that isn\'t at the Titan size. If they gave us both Starsaber and Leo for like 180 I maaaaaybe 200 I might be a bit more hopeful.

    But he will also likely be at least a third of the cost.

    Though, if people are concerned this won't succeed because of Star Saber's obscurity, then that kinda proves HasTak's point as to why it wouldn't be a viable retail offering...no?

    But I thought not killing people was a good thing? Damn, I've been doing this all wrong for years then.

    Milne's design is great, too bad its saddled to a garbage character.

    Alright let’s talk accessories for Star saber, I would like for them to give us a little jan to either sit on his chest or hand. Background/box display should be his black and green line background when he brain sets.

    I've been wanting a new Star Saber figure for years. Since before PotP put the possibility in front of us. I will absolutely sleep on this, however, if I don't feel it's worth it.

    I wouldn't mind just the base figure and whatever accessories recreate the original figure with WfC style articulation and design style. Save literally everything else for stretch goals because I want the entry cost to be as low as they can get it.

    I'm pretty stoked for a Star Saber figure (which seems to be the consensus on who is being released via this Haslab). I don't know anything about Victory the series but I'm glad I held off on the MP for this. I'm going to anticipate the price being $600 so I can be pleasantly surprised if/when it ends up being cheaper, haha.

    I don't care who it is (though it's almost definitely MOTHERFUCKING STAR SABER) I'm buying it the second it goes up.

    It would be extremely cool of Hasbro to put the japanese shows up on Youtube to stoke interest, especially since Shout Factory let the license lapse.

    Just buy it off Japanese etailers second hand shops like Jungle Collectors Shop International or Mandarake… that would be another viable option.

    I think it’s a “would if they could” situation. The licensing on the Japanese shows is apparently a nightmare(Shout would get lousy masters from the animation studio for the original show). Still I wouldn’t be surprised if they have plans for the character in future media. he would fit in well with Cyberverse.
