    Fwiw, Pulse shipped my Kingdom Mirage and Maximal Grimlock yesterday. Might be here as early as today, according to the tracking.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Wind Raiders! They were still there tonight and I snagged one! They also have one full set of Wave 1 of the Masterverse figures.

    For anyone who is in need still: I preordered the Wave 14 SS Voyager case that comes with 1x Wreck-Gar and 2x Sweeps, and I got charged for it last night, and now its processing. So theyre getting inventory of them in slowly. That case works perfectly for me, who still hasnt even seen THRUST in Cincy, more or less Wreck-Gar. I also wanted 2 Sweeps, so this case is perfect.

    Transformers Studio Series Premier Voyager Wave 14 Case

    Its $93.99 (which is the current MSRP), with free shipping. Yes, the page says November, but it did when I pre-ordered the case last week... lol

    Is anyone here backing the Victory Saber Haslab project? I'm leaning toward no and the fact that all of his weapons don't come with it makes me even less likely.

    No. I have no connection to the character or the aesthetic.

    I had no clue who Victory Saber was until a few years ago. He looks cool, but since I have no connection to the character I'm not rushing to back him.

    Same, but I do have the need to add: I hope he's funded for the people that want him. And I'm glad you're all getting him. I just have no reason to back him and have no desire to do so.

    I had no knowledge of TF Victory, but have learned about it recently since I’ve become all in on collecting TFs these last few years. I backed day one. Mainly because I couldn’t back Unicron and had to pay extra.

    I strongly believe this Haslab will hit all the tiers. Almost all of the crowd funding stuff gets backed at the last minute. Galactus was a prime example. Also, the Japanese backers numbers haven’t been added. Lastly I don’t think Hasbro will allow this to fail. They’ll fudge the numbers to save face.

    I really don't have much interest in Japanese G1. Like someone else said, I just don't have a connection to the character or the aesthetic.

    If I get one (which I doubt) it would be to keep sealed and flip for a profit later.

    100% Agree - more Transformers are always a good thing - even if I don't personally want them. I too hope he gets funded and I think it will.

    I’ve personally wanted more Japanese G1 in my collection so I was one of the first 50 to back Star Saber. On an unrelated note, anyone seen a Waspinator in Ohio yet? I’m skipping Shadow Panther (hate the mutant mask tbh) but really want the Waspyboi

    Day one purchase, but I love Transforming Robots and a little crazy. Just watched the 86 movie and noted every character by first appearence to see who else could be in SS86 line-up.

    I've still only seen bits of Victory, and have very little personal attachment to Star Saber. However I do appreciate the niche-ness of it and think it's pretty enough to pull the trigger on since I like the design. And I'm probably an outlier in being way more excited for Victory Leo. I've always LOVED that design for whatever reason so I'm so stoked to have that in classics/generations.

    Nothing new at Easton Target. walmart had 1 Rodimus Prime, but the tape looked to possibly be peeled up and and put back down, so buy at your own risk.

    I did! I always knew who he was from the late 90's TF online community, but just recently acquired the dubs of all the Japanese shows so it was much easier of a watch and get familiar with his story. Victory is my least favorite of the 3 Japanese shows, but he does seem to hold an important place in TF Lore. Also, I'm all for Hasbro releasing more niche characters and not 10 of the almost identical Megatron(lol).

    Colerain Walmarts and Meijer didn't have anything of note: except the Walmart bear 275 had a rodimus.... They never got rodimus in. They weren't a store getting him in. Noticed the bottom of the box was retaped. Cut the tape and....

    I showed someone in electronics and they seemed pretty annoyed that it got through and took it.

    I cannot say how much I despise people that do that. This is theft, plain and simple. I am glad it is nowhere near as rampant in my area, but when it does happen, it is more than a little frustrating.
