    Regardless of Saber's success, I see Deathsaurus as a plausible retail figure just because he turns in to a giant robot dragon and that's something you can sell to kids pretty easily.

    Plus he doesn’t have as much gimmickry as Star Saber and could better fit into a retail price point

    They literally said "Let's say go!" in the last FFF.

    That and what the leakers have said it's all but confirmed.

    So it's just Star Saber? Do you think Victory Leo will be included?

    If it's just Star Saber, I'm lukewarm about that, but probably just until I see pictures, then I'll cave. :p

    If Saber funds, I would fully expect Deathsaurus and some other Victory guys to be released in the '23 line to accompany him.

    Because of how much Hasbro prioritizes G1 and because they left out all the non-G1 characters in the FFF that revealed SS wave 13, only for them to get unceremoniously dumped online, later.

    It's suppose to be Star Saber, with a final goal for Victory Leo to form Star Saber.

    So we could have a situation where Star Saber receives enough funding, but not enough for them to include Victory Leo.

    Yeah so Star Saber is a definite at this point but him alone wouldn't justify an entire Haslab project. Could include Victory Leo, Deathasauras, or both as stretch goals. Until we see the actual announcement anything is possible.

    It's Victory Leo as a final/stretch goal.

    Deathsaurus will probably happen after if Star Saber get's funded.

    To be fair to Hasbro and the stream hosts, only one of those Bayverse figures was a brand new mold with the others being a figure released already in Buzzworthy BB almost a year prior with no changes, a redeco of an existing figure, and a retool of a character that had 3 frames of screen time. Maybe they just weren't as excited to talk about them compared to all new figures.

    Noob question about Haslab.

    If I back Haslab Star Saber, and say a (or any) stretch goal is not met (i.e. Victory Leo), can you back out?

    Yes if you back out before the campaign closes.

    Perhaps, but it's also a likelihood that they did the same thing last time, talking about the Sweeps (a barely changed Scourge), King Starscream (ER Screamer with accessories) and Preceptor, but nobody else. Of course, it's entirely possible those waves will be entirely SS86, but that seems unlikely.

    Doubtful they are entirely SS86 since Hasbro seems to announce all the 86 characters for a wave at the same time.

    I'm in for the two haslab projects. Just to be a part of the excitement. I'm in for star saber or whatever it is and I'm in for the black series rancor too.

    Can't wait
