    Right? I'll concede that the visible hand syndrome in the initial showing of Victory Saber could have been avoided, but holy slag, there's no visible hand syndrome in these new pics! Keep them coming! :D

    The reveal pics for Star Saber and Victory Leo themselves weren't bad. Victory Saber's pics, on the other hand, were awkward as heck.

    I love the head-on shot of his spaceship mode, it looks like a one- or two-man battleship with that little cockpit and all those guns.

    Ehhhhh... despite my issues, they look alright I guess. I hope the people backing this set get the most out of the release.

    Didn't the MP have him just use the blade of the larger Saber's sword?

    Oh hey, you're right! There's a 5mm point right on the side of his midsection! Good eye!

    We'd probably need a display stand or something, but hey, good to know the option is (probably) there regardless!

    Even if you don’t plan on backing it you could, sell it once you got it and make a profit

    Oh these images are much more flattering than the ones the campaign page initially posted. I knew i was getting this. But now i feel happy about that decision! Lol. The gaps on saber's arms are still not great. But im hoping they change that. They changed Unicron's hands after all so i see some arm flaps as an easy change.

    One criticism and this is something I'd assume 3P will "fix" right away is Star Sabers rifle and to a lesser extent the smaller cannons on Leo. I'm just not loving how hollow they look. I don't know if some one will make a casing to hide it or just make a whole new gun but it kinda detracts from how over all good it looks.

    quick estimate is €60 in import fees(over €150 adds extra fees), taxes, and handling fees if i order at zavvi.
    shipping from tf-robots is €6.95 for me if i remember correctly.

    It clips onto the mini gun at Victory Leo's waist

    Considering the inside of the forearms will have to sit flush against the body for jet mode, the addition of panels there is not very likely

    Oh, cool! Must've missed that when the OP pointed out the 5mm port.

    Nope, it's a separate weapon.

    Not a fan of this but then I never liked Star Saber anyway, too much like a Gundam, also think its a bit dbaggy for a 13 billion dollar company to crowdfund items that they could fund with a days petty cash.

    Congrats and good luck to those who are fans of it, hopefully RID prime will be next.

    It was only a brief part of the livestream so I'm not surprised a lot of people didn't really notice it. The gun has like a sorta c clip type of thing on the bottom and it wraps around that waist gun

    This isn't a crowdfund in the traditional sense, it's more of a guaranteed preorder minimum required for production to be viable
