    I do like when there are evil autobots, it’s a very interesting idea and shows how both sides aren’t black and white but are gray with good decepticons, but bad autobots and vice versa. However star saber is the one I have the biggest issue with him being one of them, due to it being his first and biggest role outside of Japan, it gives the impression that star saber is like that instead of what he actually was. For example in a server I’m in someone called star saber a villain and hated them when the victory haslab was announced. I love the idea of taking characters and giving them new ideas , but not when it’s the very first interpretation outside of Japan, where it makes people think that’s how the character has been and don’t look into their history.

    Never say never, they could say Optimus, and the trailer is finished there, and stretch goals are the extra's like Jetfire and Overload

    I’ve never seen so many grown men complaining about children’s toys. It feels like with every reveal there’s more negativity and arguing surrounding it then anything else.

    I just ignore those that honestly can't be reasoned and are here to be hateful and rude, I don't give them a single other thought

    I'm not letting myself hope for that again, I've been hurt before. Every convention that we don't get an update the less likely it is to ever made and it's been like three years hasn't it?
    You must be new here lmao.

    Holy Cow, I didn't realize that Star Saber needed his honor defended so much. Roberts was trying to demonstrate how extremism is bad in any direction. It's why he made Chief Justice Tyrest a fanatic about law enforcement, why the DJD were fanatics about loyalty and why Pharma was a fanatic about control/fame. Star Saber covered the religious extremist ideas. (Tarn also covered extreme addiction). Love it or hate it, it was simply a creative choice.

    Also, AFAIK Roberts did not go into anyone's home and start slapping fans for enjoying JG1 Star Saber. By now we should already know that different versions of the same character can co-exist. RiD2000 Ultra Magnus is a huge a-hole in contrast to G1 Magnus--- and that's okay.

    Back on topic: I'm hugely looking forward to this modern version Star Saber.

    Vaguely curious about what size he'll be, because they have to be dreaming if they think a Commander Class Star Saber is worth the same amount as Unicron.

    I would *hope* this costs about what a third party MP would run. That's basically what it is. A limited run figure in a larger scale than anything else you own, with top many little pieces to sell at retail.

    HasTak would have no problem selling two figures named Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus.

    Especially when one of them turns in to a fire truck.

    They aren't because he isn't. If you read the thread the same leakers saying it's Saber said he's around $200-250.

    Not all Haslabs projects have been on Unicron's price range, this will likely be alot less expensive.

    I think they said price is about 200-250 for it, so about half the price, but if he is big, then might be worth it

    I'm burnt out on Multiple Universes. Doesn't interest me anymore except for Shattered Glass.

    You should've seen the Haslab Unicron thread when it was first shown...

    Reasonable example of someone totally missing the point, haha. But gain I'm gonna say, if you go into MTMTE and assume this is going to be the same versions of these characters as they appear in other G1 media (they aren't), then you've played yourself. I don't think it's unreasonable for people to write the story they want to tell without catering specifically to a group of people who can't pick up on incredibly simple storytelling cues, who might get mad about something that isn't a thing (Star Saber always being a zealot in every piece of media he is in, for example).

    Maybe OG Star Saber will get his day in the sun, one day. And maybe someone will write an interesting story for him in the west. Maybe they wont, and itll come out anyway. But I dont think it or people's inability to do simple googling is a legitimate concern nor a valid criticism of the character (you can, however, criticise it for being badly written, but it's hardly socially irresponsible. )

    That's fair but Hasbro has made a grand total of one RID figure in CHUG ever T30 Sky-Byte. Those Scourges and Ruination were all made by Takara or Fun Pub

    I still think the Unicron thread is the worst, but this fandom overall can be really embarrassing.

    I thought it was a license issue, like Saban had the rights with Hasbro, then when Saban sold to Disney, they owned it and to this day they still have it hence why no new figures without hoops and hurdles
