    Shower thought: Is Star Saber's short height due to a desire to have him scaled well next to Dai Atlas?

    Someone should mesh Hound and Dai Atlas together, then compare the FFF pics to see if that's the case.

    Also damn Hasbro HK hasn't announced where can we order it.

    I almost wonder if the choice of scaling was so that Saber ends up equal-height to Wheeljack lmao

    Despite the fact that I'm getting this one, I await a KO company seizing on this scale thing to make an oversized version.

    Huh, you might be on to something. I just looked at screenshots of the scene with Saber, Wheeljack, Perceptor, and Minerva and Saber's the same height as the other three.

    What if Saber's size is so that if he's successful, he'll scale with other JG1 toys that would come to retail?

    Similar to how the BW guys scale fairly close to what you'd expect despite being nowhere near accurate relative to G1.

    Saber being a Deluxe would fit with such a plan, as it'd open the door for future retail Brainmasters to be compatible.

    Hmm, that would satisfy people who want JG1 stuff to scale with each other and who don't particularly care how it scales with 84-86 stuff since past Headmasters they didn't pop up in those shows much anyway, AND it would satisfy people who want JG1 stuff but don't particularly like the extent of the absurd scale creep that happened over the course of those series. Good call.

    Well Dai Atlas is the same height as Overlord and came with two deluxe sized figures didnt he? Should be a rather straight forward comparison. Or compare the brainmaster to any of the titan masters from that set, they showed that scale off in the stream

    It's Probably the best figure to scale with other than Super Ginrai

    I think they have him scaled for that potential Deathsaurus in 2023. Too big and they couldn't get his rival out at retail

    A lot of the Victory guys are stupidly scaled in the anime. Just plain impractical to get the whole cast perfectly lined up against each other.

    No, for the love of god, we're never going to see Hasbro advocate for a Titan Class Galaxy Shuttle. So that one guy, please stop asking.

    Space was a big complaint during the last TF Haslab. Chances are they settled on "big enough" to appease the crowd that have to actually fit the guy somewhere. If I recall correctly, Victory Saber is roughly eye to eye with Siege Jetfire so when all is said and done, he isnt entirely off

    As someone who doesn’t care too much about scale Star Saber and Victory Leo seem dope. Imo they should be big, how big doesn’t matter as long as there not shorter than say ER Prime. Even then I wouldn’t care too much.

    I really hope they add forearm covers for Saber's bot mode. It's the one thing about this guy I can't get over. For what they're charging I think they can make the extra addition of 2-4 parts to the parts count. In the stream they even mentioned that they were still working on the sword and the molds haven't been cut yet so it's not impossible.

    I keep reading these in my head in Rslash's Karen voice and honestly could not be more entertained, I hope these responses never stop, lol.

    Deathsaurus isn’t as super complicated as Star Saber. I could see him as Dinobot sized leader class figure with less accessories (maybe make Eaglebreast and Lionbreast a core pack).

    I’m going off topic here, but someone said that they may rescale combiners to fit with the WFC Trilogy. Does that mean Menasor will be the same size or smaller than CW Devastator? Thanks!

    Now back to the HasLab SS discussion… :)

    While I’m annoyed that he’s a Haslabs Figure.......I’m happy the price is actually manageable ($180, not $500+ like Unicron) so odds are I’ll back it (Star Saber and Victory Leo? Yes!).......

    With Tier 1 being blast effects and the Victory Rifle, I wonder what Tier 2 and 3 would be.......(probably the Shield that the Masterpiece Star Saber had, and maybe Holi, Clipper, Fixit, maybe some additional Weapons)

    Yeah, Deathsaurus, Road Ceasar, Landcross, a decent Liokaiser (with all 6 Members and their Brest Weapons), Dinoking would probably get regular releases, with Galaxy Shuttle as a Commander Class at Jetfire Scale ........

    Heck, maybe Death Cobra would be a Selects Figure

    Hmm… I think he should be around commander size, and come with all of his accessories (weapons, Eaglebreast and Lionbreast).

    But ultimately, in my opinion it depends on the size of Haslab Star Saber’s height. I believe it will be close to 10 inches. I do not think that Deathsaurus should be too much bigger or smaller than Star Saber. Maybe an inch difference at the most.
