They did him dirty
I don't think they can ask for Haslab prices without it being Victory Saber, right? A ~$250 Star Saber alone would be ridiculous.
Ah yes in today’s “the internet judging something before it’s fully revealed”
You know that TakTom will have a hand in designing it right?
Mp Star Saber was released six years ago
USA goofy and JP goofy are two different beasts my guy.
Now if you excuse me I have a frying pan that needs to be turned into a drying pan.
Star Saber alone has three components:
Brain of Courage (likely a Titan Master)
Saber (core robot, large deluxe/small voyager size)
The rest of the ship/body (larger Jetfire-sized armored shell for Saber to plug into)
An accurate Star Saber will need a bit more than just the “fold this bit out, tuck this bit in, fold out hands, flip head up”, especially if Victory Leo is included at all. He should be, at least, Siege Jetfire-sized when all armored up, taller as Victory Saber.
They threw in 2 alternate heads, an alternate hand and a Marvel Legends figure with the Sentinel, there's not really any reason why they couldn't throw in Victory Leo as a stretch goal. Stretch goals also aren't usually something that's sold separately, they're rewards for reaching certain goals of backer numbers

Haslab is a safety-net. Since Star Saber has only had media appearances in the West in Games and Comics and Victory Leo hasn't
And just because it doesn't have as much nostalgic factor as say US G1 or the UT in the West doesn't mean there isn't any. Victory got the official sub and plenty of people are excited for it.
I would have been fine with just a regular Leader Class Star Saber and Deathsaurus at retail. But I guess those future Leader class price point are taken by them doing more G1 Optimus Prime and Megatron for the next five years huh?
Im kinda glad we’re getting a Star Saber but kind of disappointed in the sense we already have the MP as a detailed figure but lack a Victory Lio to go with him.
It’d be a big surprise though if this turned out to be a swerve and we get someone like Liokaiser
So if I have the G1 and MP starsbares, should I even care about this?
Both star saber and deatsaurus are pretty large characters. They really fit more in commander class.
Here's hoping for Star Saber and Victory Leo Leader Class bots.
If you want to see this to be successful then maybe yes. If not, I think both are great representations of the greatest commander of the cybertrons.
Commander Class is already just becoming Leader-because-the-economy-is-fucked, the same way Leaders are now Voyagers and Voyagers are Deluxe!
If it\'s 160 or lower then sure for starsabre
if 200 maybe
if over 200 then naw son
Would be kind of neat if the Victory Leo could also somehow combine with the MP.
So you refuse to believe the figure can be worth its price tag and will be overpriced?
Hasbro should also give us a decent Liokaiser. That CW repaint with no breast force animals doesn't count!
