    The potp poll was assaulted by the BW crowd. Magnus came in 2nd because people wanted a new non-idw mode toy. Star Saber and Deathsaurus were 3 and 4.

    If SS gets a new combining toy with VL in awesome detail I will finally get over his POTP loss. (And good luck bw fans at a new optimal optimus... Hasbro probably sees potp as the "definitive" version of him)

    Yay. Haslab Victory Saber? Why couldn’t they make it a regular release?

    Gonna be expensive and over engineered. Fuck you @Hasbro. pass.
    Thanks but NO thanks.

    So who do we think the Haslab will be? Obvious choice would be Star Saber. Maybe in a two pack with Victory Leo. Even more fun would be a three pack with Deathsaurus. To hit the rumored "at least half the price of Unicron" price I would think the 3 pack would be the best bet.


    Leokaiser done properly with all 6 members this time and their breast animals could be nice too. Or maybe Dinoking finally? I don't know what that would do to our chances of Monstructor if they used the molds for a Haslab project though. Both of these would struggle to hit the price though. Liokaiser is six deluxes (maybe 5 and a voyager) and 6 micromasters. Dinoking is the same but instead of the micromasters, there would be pretender shells. That's only around $200 each probably.

    Road Caesar and Landcross definitely are too small for this. Blue Bacchus is better suited to a leader, like Black Shadow. We already have Legends Greatshot and he wouldn't be big enough for this either. That only leaves Galaxy Shuttle, who also wouldn't make a good Haslab.

    It's probably Star Saber w/ Victory Leo, at least based off of leakers. $200 is a big pill to swallow, but unlike Unicron, I don't see this guy being gigantic, just being a Commander + either another Commander or a Leader. I'll have to wait and see before doing any backing.

    I'm pretty sad by this. I love the idea of victory saber, but for me, 250 is hard to swallow in one go. Like damn, I want one, buy I don't have those kind of funds lying around immediately. A warning would've been nice

    It's sad seeing people who, like me, haven't watched victory, trying to dictate what size class star saber should be. This toy literally isn't intended for us. If we like it, that's great. But it's for JG1 fans.

    I already have the original Star Saber.
    It was already redone as MP-24 -which was just fine too (once you got the joints fixed).
    KFC Simba was nice too as Victory Leo.
    Deathsaurus would be a much better option for this Haslab offering.

    I never paid attention to those, so I didn’t realize they’d throw in a $50 add on for nothing. I assumed it wold be like Unicron and be little unpainted figures.

    It is though, you're paying for a limited quantity exclusive figure that would be made no other way.

    Reliable Leakers have said it's Star Saber with Victory Leo as a stretch goal for around $200-$250.

    Plenty of goofy shit happens in JG1. Headmasters has hardhead singing at the top of his lungs which is hilarious.

    EXACTLY. Hasbro is trying to screw us over and act cool and hip by releasing a so called import Japanese Transformers character with zero nostalgic significance in the West via an overrated crowd funding style project?! Fucking asshats.

    Unicron struggled quite a bit in comparison to the other Haslab projects so I can understand your point of reference.

    Though Star Saber has a lot more going for him being $300 cheaper than the last Transformer HasLab project so I doubt it'll need much convincing especially when there's already MPs of the character people can use as reference.

    When the poll was up, we didn't know it was going to be some 'evolution gimmick' or that it would be Optimal Optimus. People just wanted a new chance at a Leader Optimus Primal with the season 1 design, as the poll showed. Had the gimmick been known, Star Saber or Magnus would have absolutely won. So that one is on Hasbro, not just the BW fans like me. We also didn't know Kingdom would happen, especially due to Warden so it seemed like the only chance Optimus Primal would get for several years, at least at the time.

    Star Saber might also have been soured by the IDW portrayal. Or not, maybe it helped him? Hard to tell.

    Happy for you guys that are digging Star Saber/Victory Sabre.

    I don't quite get the love for them, especially since a MP of Star Sabre was just released. I kind of wish we got something else from Haslab. Although, it seems like I'm the only one who thinks this way.

    Hi. I'm from the west and I have plenty of nostalgia for victory. You might have mor years of it, but still there is a fandom in the west for JG1. Especially victory.
