    Was that it - where the holly hell is the Wave 4 reveals then ?

    That said though he's a bit titchy he's worth buying at that price.

    It only lasted 20 min. (15 if we don't count the wait), well... at least it wasn't a whole hour praising Star Saber, I'll keep sleeping lol, byes dudes.

    Pleasantly surprised with the price! I expected $250 for Victory Saber. Easy choice to back it.

    Backed!

    I can't wait to see color prototypes. I hope they release the heights of all the figures and combined mode.

    I don't think they'd want anything potentially undermining Victory Saber's backing.

    Really really really glad its just 180 for the whole Victory Saber.

    Only very minor gripe is that I wanted that Flame Toys style Victory Saber with the lion head as the chest, but I known the meltdowns would have been epic.

    I gotta admit that first unlock tier had me confused because I know next to nothing about JG1.

    Are we gonna speculate what other possible tiers might be? I really have no idea what they might include now that Victory Saber is on from the get go.

    I know, right?! A POTP Leader version would have been such a janky little thing with most of its features stripped out (and likely no ankle tilt, haha). This has the budget to do it right. Good things come to those who wait!

    They did the same with Galactus. Just a dedicated stream for the reveal. Hopefully they will do wave 4 in a couple weeks and use the opportunity to promote the Haslab. We’ve had 3 or 4 Marvel legends fan firsts since they revealed Galactus and they plugged him every time.

    They pretty specifically mention in the ad copy of the campaign that this is the first of JG1 coming and first Brain Master and first of increased articulation.

    There's still 2 more stretch goal tiers at 17K and 20K

    Any guesses?

    What a nice surprise. It looks like fans of this guy got most everything they wanted for far less than they expected to pay. The whole kit right up front. I’m surprised it isn’t $250+ with a 20,000 backer requirement. I have no interest in this guy myself, but it looks like a nice chunky toy.

    So guess we will have to wait longer for wave 4 kingdom and golden disk collection reveals.

    Wow, I didn't want to want this but at $180 for both of them I'm so tempted. He's bigger than I would've really liked but not nearly as huge as I was worried he would be, judging by the comparison with Hound. I only care about Star Saber so I wonder if I could sell off Victory Leo and recoup some of the cost... of course he won't be as desirable on his own as Star Saber will be, but there will still surely be people regretting passing on the set who want at least a part of it.

    Not sure what yall were expecting lol. Haslab streams are always about the item and mostly never promote other items.

    This is exactly what I was hoping for. Not too familiar with/no attachment to Star Saber but always down for cool Transformers. At $180 for Star Saber AND Victory Leo with the ability to combine everything, I'm 100% in
