    Hey, it's official!

    Can't wait to get Victory Saber! (Well, hopefully enough back it to get Leo anyway.)

    I just don't click with how Japanese G1 is written, love the designs though.

    it's actually really not. That's is GENEROUSLY $33 worth of product at MSRP ($23 Deluxe plus 1/2 of a $20 Cassette pack). IIRC, last years Pit of Judgement was exactly the MSRP of it's contents. so they're charging you $12 for a (admittedly nice!) fancy box (although, not as nice and fancy as last years it's worth pointing out...)

    Hasbro just feels like it's trying REALLY hard to find our financial break points. I'll probably get this because I always wanted X9 in my collection (and it looks good!), but in a seriously begrudging manner.

    Hasbro themselves. It is VERY common for toy companies to do exclusives with websites in terms of news.

    $45 plus $50 Pulse membership for Ravage makes him an easy pass. If I was a member and it was just $45? Yeah maybe then.


    Victory Haslab though? Let’s fucking gooooo


    Want: Commander class Deathsaurus and Starsaber
    Expect: Unused POTP Dinobot remolds into Dinoking
    Nightmare mode: 4th ER Wheeljack reissue in Victory branded packaging

    $45 for the ravage 2 pack is a bit steep imo, that's over the prices of 2 deluxes and ravage seems to be a little over a deluxe. G1 Ravage ain't worth $20 especially if they're counting him as a "micromaster"

    You do get that for limited releases such as this they HAVE to charge more to cover the costs, right?

    This isn't Pit of Judgement where everything is just a recolor save for one figure that got a different head. Ravage has a new transformation, new head, new weapons, new molded parts... its a new figure. But also one that the general public won't be interested in. It's for fans.

    Without the mark up we would have just gotten Shadow Panther: a black Cheetor with maybe a new head and that's it.

    I want to believe it's Star Saber (and Victory Leo, if the stretch goal rumor is true)

    He did land 4th out of 12 in the POTP poll, beaten only by some major names... he deserves his chance to shine!

    (And don't give me "he got an MP toy"... his MP didn't have a VL to combine with, and thus is incomplete!!!!!)

    I thought Star Saber was a sure thing for the POTP Leader poll. Then he came in dead last.

    Is Victory really popular enough for a project to get funded?

    I would be excited, if it weren’t for the fact it’ll probably look like a commander class figure yet be in the hundreds....

    I mean Unicron at least made sense being expensive...

    I'd watch a cheesy English G1-esqe Dub. I'm gonna try and dump the rest of my listings into a focused Star Saber fund so that hopefully it gets Hasbro to make more new versions of Japanese G1 characters.

    Anybody wanna help me help Japanese G1?
