    eh it doesn't look much better to me. the whole thing seems a bit off.
    i hope so. it would be cool for IF to do one.

    and i agree it does kind of work for grim better than it does for others.

    Since you clearly have to remove Saber from Star Saber(unless that lion head is real roomy on the inside) to combine the two, is the combined form really Victory Saber? Isn't it just Victory Leo being worn by Saber's clothes while Saber sits off to the side?

    I mean, that’s the name of the combination anyway, both on the show and apparently for the HasLab campaign, too, so… yeah.

    But, on the other hand, the Brainmaster inside Saber—the (by Solus) Brain of Courage—has presumably already transferred into the V-Star, so Saber could just be an empty Transtector at this point.

    And, seeing as Saber only makes an appearance in Secret and Lies among the IDW canons, and that Victory Leo only shows up in Ultra Magnus’ retinue in the new continuity, that leaves it up to us and our own shelf canons to decide whether or not Kadmos is a full Brainmaster of the Brain of Courage or just a Powermaster of Saber’s, in which case Saber’s delegates to becoming an ammo clip for Victory Leo. :rolleyes: 

    And, FWIW, the original toys didn’t have Leo’s head on Star Saber’s chest when they combined, so TakaTo didn’t give away what they were going to produce for most of the following decade.

    Still, I’m glad that Planet X has decided to take after FlameToys and the Yuusha/Brave series, and that’s very convincing for me.

    Looks great, but the final release might not look like that. Their G2 Cacus for example had a lot more varied paint apps on reveal, but that's not what people are getting. I don't appreciate bait and switch tactics.

    I don't have any Planet X figures, but does/would PX re-issue their Star Saber when this guy comes out?

    BBTS PO: PX-C02 Kadmos

    I am sure other NA retailers will have POs too.

    This…this is amazing! I have waited for this guy to make it to this stage and the recent photos do him justice.

    I am okay this a Brave Victory Saber and even if the lion head can connect to the back or not, I can still make him look like the anime version if I wish. However I’m gonna leave that to the HasLab Victory Saber and this…Brave Leo Saber will be a different entity on its own.

    I look forward to this guy coming out, I hope BBTS or TFSource drop a preorder soon. Unless I actually try preordering at Show.Z Store

    Looks like you'll have to remove the V-Star's Thrusters+Wing for the combined mode to work? Hopefully there are still peg holes available for those, I don't want having unused pieces lying around.
    Also guess I'll need to paint some parts on StarSaber's torso black now. VLeo's gold clashes badly with the blue in that config.

    VLeo looks amazing, but without upgraded ratchets or some other support, i'm dubious Star Saber will be able to hold the weight. Floor polish worked on my SS like a charm, but there's no way that'll be enough if VLeo is even half as hefty as SS....

    Different sources. HasLab is based more on his G1 cartoon and early comic appearance, where this is IDW - and, to my knowledge, there was no Victory Saber combination in IDW (nor was there even a Saber, for that matter) so some liberties have been taken.

    If you want something based more on the same source as the HasLab then take a look at what IronTrans is offering. They indicated they were looking to make a Victory Leo, though that was pre-pandemic and all we've seen since is a re-issue of Star Blade.

    It’s not as much the aesthetics but the construction. It looks very top heavy and posing is limited.
