    Just curious, does anyone think this would look good next to Gen. Selects Black Zarak?

    I reported it. I'm so tired of people making personal attacks over toys. It's just plastic and he's a human being. Might not agree with him but he deserves better than to be called stupid over a toy.

    We all do.

    Shame we don't realize it.

    I paid $170 for the Big Powered set so why not? Saves me from hunting a Simba and risking KFC quality control.

    Except they didn't. They said several times Takara was a massive help on this.

    Amazing. :D  Truly a character well deserving of a premium release!

    Hope all of you BW fans who voted for Optimal in the POTP poll are happy with that disaster of a figure, because had SS won you could have potentially be getting Optimal done right in Haslab right now. :D :D :D  I'm so glad now that we're getting a proper VICTORY Saber!!!!!

    My MP Star Saber's pelvis snapped under the weight of KFC Simba...and he yellowed for no reason, when no other figure in my collection has yellowed. MP Star Saber is no fun to mess with either, the articulation kind of sucks. I've got my critiques of this figure, but it's gotta be better than the MP.

    This is the same childish logic that was used to dismiss the Unicron criticism. It was wrong then and it's still wrong now.

    I was OK with this until I saw that the robots are just 5 inch (12 cm). WTF? That's smaller than a deluxe?!? I expected both of them would be Leader sized for 180$...

    You'd hope after all these years, all the Takara shilling would just be one really long bit...

    ...But it just doesn't stop.

    THIS is the cancer killing Transformers, folks. The inability to get out of the old "us vs them" mentality.

    I love this set. I want to support it because it could mean more JG1. I'm not a selfish manbaby and I can accept a Hasbro effort.

    You're only here to bash Hasbro.
    You refuse to listen to reason.
    Just go.

    Victory definitely being the worst of the Japanese g1 shows this still looks pretty cool! The stream definitely makes the figure pop instead of just the pics.

    My guess for stretch goal 2 is a Holi and StarSaber’s adopted son, Jan. Or just Holi. A more articulated MM Holi would be amazing and he definitely deserves it.

    We get it. Refrain from that whole Hasbro vs Takara. There’s elements of both and many are happy this is made.

    They showed the physical models on the stream. They aren't 5 inches each. The inner saber bot is about that height so they probably copy/pasted and never edited. But they're definitely taller than that.

    Not really. It's the time of year people plan on spending money.
