    Symbol doesn't line up on the hood. The autobot symbol looks like Two face.

    Just 2 quibbles with mine.

    1st, the autobot logo in vehicle mode is misaligned. It's an annoyance and I'll probably get around to just removing it eventually

    2nd, the piece that his bot mode head sits on is loose when rotating between bot and car mode. It's perfectly stable in either mode but when transforming one side likes to try and pop out.

    Neither are things that ruin the figure in my opinion

    Given how collectible pre-orders tend to get snapped up in their first day of listing, it's possible that TakaraTomy isn't banking on a long time to get this done. Japanese collectors will not balk at paying for items twice the cost of Victory Saber.

    It might be that they're waiting for the coloured samples or such, to make it a big splashy announcement, and then off to the races immediately.

    Man it’s crazy that TT still isn’t offering this in Japan. Maybe they’re anticipating it’ll get backed and will release it to Japanese audiences as a TT Mall exclusives later?

    You're claiming that this is a done deal, and the whole HasLab angle is a charade. And we're telling you that that's wrong, for a whole host of reasons.

    That's the only way that TT could go ahead and sell this without the requisite funding being achieved, is if none of us matter.

    In NY they started requiring a half year of economics for seniors starting in '89.

    Except wave 4, 'cause Hasbro gotta Hasbro.

    And that's all that really matter.

    Don't you know by now? Long threads on TFW are just infinite monkeys with infinite typewriters. One second it's Victory Saber, and then you look away for just a moment, and then BAM! Full menu for your next Superbowl party.

    No Shakespeare, though. Our monkeys are drunk and a little bit brain-damaged.

    I'm leaning more to this. Heck, even upping the ante this won't be an EX in TTMall. Only difference would be the release date

    Yeah, re: Takara selling this as an EX item, what would probably happen is that Hasbro would count that order as part of the crowdfund numbers and add it near campaign's end.

    Takara won't sell the numbers required to get it made but they'll sell enough to probably hit a stretch goal or two once those numbers are added.

    I'm beginning to understand how these conversations go off topic so easily.

    ..okay, that was bad. So bad, the crowd in the stands are booing at me...
