    Also a very poor point of comparison. These two are going to be easily more massive than a retail toy in a similar height range because they're going to have a much higher parts count.

    You sure about that? They have hollow sections to them and are very simple in terms of transformation. Even MP star saber is simple….

    Probably, but it would most likely be double the price.

    I mean, probably, just keep in mind you won't be paying MSRP.

    Hold up, let me check, yeah my eyes work. Yes, I'm sure.

    Complexity of transformation =/= low parts count.

    Ok… then what does…. Because it doesn’t look that much higher of a parts count than usual leaders.

    Go on the haslab page, right click, open image in new tab, enlarge. Carefully look over the images, it's very easy to see how many separate parts are going into this.

    Mhm, again not that much more complex. A lot of parts that first seem to be separate are most likely just painted on as well.

    Guarantee you it's already met. They just gotta log it.

    Yes, but be prepared to pay out the nose.

    Stuff like ratchets, the hand gimmick, and joint structures. There's more to the mechanical functionality than just those allotted for transformation.

    Really torn on this. I backed this but keep thinking of pulling out. I have the masterpiece with the upgraded joints and kfc simba. Don’t know if there’s difference enough to warrant the purchase.

    Exactly. For example I just got SS86 Slug today and that cost $50 US. It has a pretty simple transformation but not only is it big but it has double jointed elbows, ratcheted shoulders, ratcheted hip joints, and double jointed ratcheted knees. That more than justifies the leader price.

    True, those make them more doled than today’s leaders, but is that anymore complex than leader from a few years ago? Not really. Which is why it’s funny to hear size be the only thing people ever use as an excuse to make people forget about the better built leaders of old.

    Here at Haslab Super Funding General things continue to be crazy. We are currently experiencing over a hundred new backers per day reporting symptoms of Saberitis. Cases have leveled off somewhat since the disastrous spike just over a week ago; however, officials are concerned about a potential new wave arriving over the next few days. More problematically, some are suggesting that if the backer numbers truly skyrocket it may reveal brand new symptoms including the inability to sit down, increased resistance to shots, and the problematic condition known as V-LoC, which has proved difficult for the EMS Fire and Police to handle on their own.
    Currently symptoms can include
    • wallet lightening
    • increased anxiety/anticipation
    • uncontrollable desire for more shelf space
    • vocal public outbursts of phrases like "I'm in!" "One of us!" or "Backed!"
    • obsession with numbers or counting
    Looking at the charts we can can see this is far worse than the Unicronemia that spread through the region two years ago.

    Indeed there are a confirmed 13185 cases currently, which is over a thousand more than even the highest previous estimates of Unicronemia in nearly half the time. Some observers have been shocked, never anticipating that Saberitis could even become reality. Others see this as a conspiracy, blaming paint and plastics company Hasbro for foisting this upon the world. Both skeptics and sufferers alike, however, agree that Saberitis most likely came out of the Far East--it's design and structure closely resembling strains that struck Japan in 1989 and briefly in 2015.

    It's spread so far has even surpassed the spread of Galactanitis that broke out earlier this year. As of today, Saberitis has broken estimates and affected approximately 20% more backers than was estimated at the start.

    The situation will likely become more dire as the week progresses and international cases are eventually added to the final tally.
    In order to combat this, officials advise you to hide your bank cards, limit online exposure, and tell your spouse about any new unexplainable attractions to the colors red, white, and blue, or subtitles.

    The thing is, it is clear when you spend much of your time analyzing these figures behind a camera. You can take an aggregate of all the figures released under certain size classes, both historically and modernly, and get a very good idea of what belongs where.
    I'm also not saying everyone who disagrees is trying to protect backing numbers, but with the amount of blowback I'm getting for pointing out the obvious, I'd be shocked if at least some people aren't motivated by such a concern.
