Nah, I was thinking of Revoltech. Japanese doesn't have a v, so it is spelled riboru.
I've always regretted not knowing who this was for the KO of this one. Passed it up at least 20 times back then; almost bought it a few times just to see what it was.
I mean, yeah. I feel like it doesn't need to be explicitly stated that I want new figures to look better than the original toys and don't want them to inherit their flaws, especially as you point out, they're ironed out the flaws in the past.
Like as much as I like the Optimus Prime pose, I don't want Optimus Prime figures whose arms look unnatural unless they're in that specific pose.
Don't feel too bad, I own that exact one and the QC is.. well it's not a very good KO. It donated some weapons to better figures but it's a bad figure.
I've heard as much about the QC, but it'd still make a decent shelf bot, I'd think!? That, and the fact that I've seen that guy go for more than 100 on eBay these days make me wish I'd stashed a few aside, haha.
I just like laughing at myself for how little I thought of that thing when I'd see it ad Big Lots while I was hunting KO G1 Combiners back in the early 2000's, and how excited I am to be getting this Haslab version next year.
I have the Victory Leo from the same counterfit molds (Tuesday Morning find) and the quality is VERY poor lol.
It's possible, but veers pretty heavily into "conspiracy theory" for my tastes.
Numbers reported to Hasbro, but intentionally NOT included in the count... no, that's not honest.
Basically pretty similar to the G1 toy but with a bit more articulation and of course a small size.
revoltech did some but not star saber
there's a mega scf line that had a star saber and a victory leo that could split apart. didn't transform just figures
No, I was saying that I have a Rodimus one from them.
Almost got the black version of this a while back. Honestly glad I held out because this is so much better for a similar price point.
Ok, Victory Saber is funded, now is time to work in titan class Liokaiser with Deathcobra and Lyzack as tier goals
I like your optimism!
Lio Convoy, Overlord, Black Shadow, LioKaiser - which didn't even make it to Japan. Not to mention several Botcon exclusives. Hasbro has a short-term memory problem.
Are you talking about the old Mega SCF line? They were pretty much Takara's answer to Banda's MSA Gundam line at the time. 5" figures with articulation and accessories and alt hands.
I think he means that he has a Revoltech Rodimus.
It's not really about honesty, it's about when they get around to it. If you get information at your job, do you always act on it immediately? Adding a tally of affiliate orders is likely not a 'gotta do it immediately' type of task.
Overlord was also released in the UK & Australia (plus potentially other territories with the exception of the US), Black Shadow is a remold (first of Thunderwing, then said Overlord) as is Liokaiser (from various CW figures) whilst I believe Lio Convoy was simply imported by Hasbro, along with Magmatron & a few others (like the current Pulse releases of Japan Exclusive Gen Selects figures)
I realise it’s just semantics and marketing guff, but ‘technically’ Victory Saber is the first exclusive who they’ve made as a brand new figure, as opposed to a new head / minor remold or someone who was also released in other territories.
If we're playing with semantics, TR Overlord is technically the retooling of TR Black Shadow, since Black Shadow preceded him.
So TR Black Shadow is truly "the first Japanese exclusive character who they’ve made as a brand new figure in the US".
Yeah, I saw him mention the Revoltech. I was asking for clarification because his post made it seem like he wasn't sure which Rodimus he had, and both Revoltech and Mega SCF did a figure of him.
Finally backed today, but I'm wondering about the pre-authorization, My bank says I have a pre-authorization of $0 from Hasbro pulse and I'm wondering if it changes to $180 before the campaign ends for card authorization then the full charge on the end of backing, when I called Hasbro pulse the agent said I'm one of the lucky ones that got a $0 versus $180 pre-authorization for card confirmation wondering if anyone else has had that
