    I'm considering it because that's a very affordable price.

    But! Need some more brainmasters.
    And I don't mean Braver, Laster and Blacker.
    Oh no no no no no.
    I mean Lightspeed (not that one), Flame (not that one) and Gripper (what?).

    I actually like the Magnus color scheme. But, yeah, whatever it is or was didn't happen the second time. Probably the company filters making sure I wasn't emailing myself all our big secret documents.

    Just looking at the tier level goals, not sure that I like that the cannons are a stretch goal. If it came with the original figures, those should probably come with the new version as well. Of course, some third party will produce them eventually if Hasbro doesn't, I suppose. And, hey, all they'll have to do it make 11,000+ of them based off the HasLab monitor.

    Looks excellent except for the forearm gaps on the inner robot...can't believe they'd cut corners on a HasLab figure, oh wait, I can:

    No.

    It's a fine price.

    You made the same comment on YouTube. Last I checked (a while ago, admittedly) there were no likes. Shame you got one here.

    It's Star Saber and Victory Leo. They've never done them before and they weren't doing them before, now that's all changed. It takes money to make money. It also takes money to get our plastic crack.

    Yet so many will buy a repaint of POTP combiners with arguably less components (Abominus) and pay more. $200, now vs $180.

    Yeah, okay.

    A photo manipulation accident, nothing more.

    Now, my thoughts:
    Negatives out of the way...
    -I don't like the open forearms on Saber, they need to fix that.
    -I don't like that the cannon is a tier unlock when they basically said you get it all, in the beginning.

    That said... People cried for an affordable HasLab Transformers project and here it is. And people are are crying. (No, not talking about those who can't afford it, those who can but won't.) What do you want? One minute you're begging for something cool, the next you're all "oh, no... The price!"

    WHAT DO YOU WANT?!

    It's $180.00 plus tax and free shipping where Pulse operates. If you don't fund it, you know where the door is. If you screw this up for everyone, shame on you. This is a chance to show Hasbro we want affordable HasLabs and they give us one and you all want to walk.

    I hate being a fan, sometimes, such an ungrateful bunch. Is it perfect? No. Unicron wasn't either and this is a heck of a lot cheaper than he was.

    Go collect something else then, we're so tired of hearing this overwhelming negativity in every single thread that unveils a new figure.

    Rodimus? Check.
    Galvatron? Check.
    This? Check.

    You're not happy in this hobby anymore, please for everyone's sake, including your own, QUIT!

    It's HasLab and they are taking all the credit for Takaratomy's incredible and engineering skills. Fuck that.

    The price point seems a little high for what are basically 2 leader class figures. I backed it no problem, but really hoping they add a 3rd figure as a tier unlock... you know someone like Deathsaurus (Dezarus) so we can have a hero vs villian set.

    And…backed this project! First time Haslab project, skipped Unicron, so I’m happy to get Star Saber and Victory Leo and that they can fit better in my CHUG collection.

    also to add to this for the people who don’t like pre ordering cause they wanna see it first. You can just sell this on the aftermarket and make more than you paid so this is a great investment whether you like it or not. This situation is a win win no matter how you look at it

    Cool for you guys that are into it, but Haslab stuff isn't for me.

    I don't have enough interest left in the hobby to invest that much effort & patience into purchasing a figure anymore.

    Part of the joy of buying a new figure was the experience of walking into a store and seeing it there on a shelf in all its glory. The mad dash for pre-orders and limited releases has kinda killed the enthusiasm nowadays.

    Am I missing the estimated shipping date on the product page, not finding it anywhere? Did they say anything on the stream??

    No info yet on shipping. Probably Winter 2022 going by other HasLab projects.

    What do we suspect the other stretch goals might be? I'm not a big Victory fan, but I do like the design of Star Saber so I'll be backing this in a couple weeks once I've set aside the funds.

    You realize that this will be up on Takara Tomy Mall in like. a couple weeks or so, just like Unicron was right? Y-you have to have some sort of self-awareness about his availability outside of the U.S.
