    And it won't yellow, too!

    Stuff from places that are taking pre-orders that aren't Pulse, I presume.

    Speaking of I'm hoping for either the original Victory Saber box with English text or what a western G1 Victory Saber box might have looked like back in the day. Either way, I don't really care about packaging that much, but it would be cool.

    :drool:  the grid type red on white from the 90s JP series is sooooooooooooooo timeless! Maybe a hybrid of the recent HM type repackaged in G1? :bowdown:

    White paint on top of white plastic would be ideal.

    I'm hoping for the opposite, that like the MP, it's mostly coloured plastic so that it has better longevity.

    Which we'll probably hit Wednesday or Thursday, depending on when they start dropping their partner numbers.

    From there it'll likely escalate quickly as stretch goals are met and FOMO takes hold.

    I think Hasbro Taiwan closes on the 6th. They'll want to add those as soon as possible so potential backers have as clear a picture of what is being made as possible.

    I would assume any partners who don't close by then will still have to report some preliminary number as well. Again, to try and give as clear a picture as possible so anyone waiting to see what goals are hit can decide if they want in or not.

    Good and bad. Painted white plastic chips off in time. Molded plastic white yellows( just ask Original G1 Red Alert and even MP Ssaber:cry  ). It's darn if you do darn if you don't.:banghead:  There's a content in the plastic that causes this(I am btw more inclined to white plastic instead of paint)

    Nyet. I want to manhandle my TFs not keep them MISB. Ceramic won't work for multi moving puzzle pieces. It sucks that white plastics discolor over time. :cry 

    Edit:

    Heck even G1 Jetfire has the curse. I wonder though highly unlikely, the DX Chogokin color for the VF1S Hikaru, it kind of subdued grey though the Fokker version looks bone white. If only keeping them, the plastics white is possible.

    I would be all for the packaging being a straight homage to the original, even having the original box art of Victory Saber alongside the images of the new figure

    They did an excellent job with LG Sixshot's box, and I truly hope they do the same with this project.
