    Most pricey I did was a PE energon Optimus and Wing Saber a few years back, and MP Delta Magnus on sale massively, I spend a lot, but not so much at once it seems

    Fair enough but I don't think I recall that first one you mentioned. Unless PE stands for something else I don't know of

    Mixed feelings on this. Much better than I was expecting, but still a little disappointing in a couple areas. I don’t know, I like it but I probably won’t get it.

    Ah gotcha. Yeah that one looked pretty, bet it would go great with that WfC/Energon Omega Supreme they put out around then.

    Agreed, but looks good with Wing Saber as well

    Motormaster is going to be his cab and the trailer is going to be the G1 accurate Menasor frame.

    ...think PMOP, but with places to attach the limb bots.

    Looking at the stretch goals, I really wish they'd say upfront. IF it's a regular toy for either of them it wont be a non victory character, and I doubt it would be an expensive one, so Deathsaurus, Liokaiser, Dinoking and Landcross are likely out...that pretty much leaves the 4 Micromasters and Minerva. I know Minerva is supposedly a Walgreens exclusive, but I could see a slightly different deco for Walgreens with the classic Victory deco for this...and I can't help imagine the forum rage at Minerva being locked into a Haslab stretch goal!

    Motormaster just being a cab isn't G1-accurate though. :^) The PMOP config isn't gonna happen for him, silly!

    I doubt they’d do a whole deluxe figure as a stretch goal, at least at that price. I think Minerva is out, personally.

    Unless they're going to completely throw scale out the window, where is all that mass going to go on Motormaster?

    Especially since his limb bots are Deluxes.

    HasTak has been watching 3Ps doing accurate Motormasters using just the cab and are likely going to try their hand at it.

    Well the latest update is that he's most likely cab and a little bit of trailer. So...

    I would have thought the same thing before but after looking at the Galactus project I say Victory Saber will pass tier 3 by the end. Galactus is closing in on 22,000 units which is 2,000 more than its last stretch goal. The last 3 HasLab campaigns all eventually passed 20,000 units by the end. I think a major reason that the Barge and Unicron didn’t reach those numbers is because of their sizes and HasLab was a new concept and people weren’t sure how it would end up. Now that people know that Hasbro will deliver the product and their quality, more people will be comfortable with backing Victory Saber.

    To be fair, they did give him a fourth stretch goal of a doctor doom head, but yeah, he is locked in and ready to be a high number backed project

    I debated that myself, but Galactus is about twice the price with 2 Marvel Legends (same retail as a deluxe) as the stretch goals...so 1 deluxe that is being reused a couple other times (no way we aren't seeing Nightbeat and odds are Siren & Goshooter will be remolds) It's a longshot...but if it IS Minerva I'll bet she's the 20K unlock.

    Hmm maybe. The only reason I say that is Galactus is about $400 American and Victory Saber is about $180 American, so there is less room in the budget than for Galactus. Honestly, I hope you’re right but I’m doubtful that you are.

    What mass? He won't be any larger than the other combiner torsos Hasbro plans to do, who would probably also be Commander class to fit all their detail and combiner kibble that Motormaster will probably have.

    Your version implies that Menasor will be larger than Defensor, Bruticus, and Superion, or Hot Spot, Onslaught, and Silverbold is larger than Motormaster's bot mode. I'm not sure how you logic that problem away, to be perfectly honest. I'm genuinely confused here.

    Don't worry, my ego won't grow THAT much when I turn out to be correct. :lol 

    Should I be using bluetext that bottom answer right now? You know I'm joking with you, right?

    ...who was also an Optimus Prime mold reuse.

    Motormaster had only just been "cab-only" during his tenure as Optimus repaint. Thinking that he'll cme into his own still carrying that particular burden from his dark times doesn't make any sense.
