    In the Victory anime God Ginrai got gravely injured in battle and he was dying. So the only way to save him was to completely rebuild him in a experimental procedure...

    ...thus he was reborn as the feral Victory Leo.

    With it all but guaranteed the final numbers shown being at least 15,000 backers strong, I can't imagine them not reaching the remaining stretch goals with worldwide orders taken into account

    I’ve been trying to follow the updates, but they still haven’t made clear whether the international backers are factored into this current number, right? Hoping for a Unicron situation where they magically add in 3,000+ people tomorrow or Saturday...

    And then, to inspire the heroic feelings of Ginrai, Star Saber sent his human son Jan with Victory Leo on a mission against all six members of the Brest Force.
    Jan and Holi were in Mortal Danger, stirring the feelings of Victory Leo that every Autobot has inside, and causing him to essentially get his shit together enough to do the right thing and become the selfless hero he truly was and is.

    The funny part of this is: Star Saber sent his kid somewhere he can be killed!
    On purpose.
    To make Victory Leo snap out of himself and save people.

    The plan worked, and it’s no worse than any parent has ever done in Transformers! (Looking at you, Witwickys!)

    But man, for how much Autobots try and save all sentient life, they sure put them at risk a lot! :D 

    I say all this to be facetious.
    Truly, I love Star Saber, and the overly heroic tones of him and the Transformers Victory series as a whole.
    Can’t wait to get these figures in hand!

    Wondering if some of these bumps were a result of taking in some initial tallies from international distributors. Like the day after TTM we got around a 2k bump (maybe added the first day totals because they knew it would be pushed over 11k). Curious about the Taiwan extension. They could be taken either way (doing great, so lets milk that cow a bit longer or a bit slow, so let's give it a bit more time and let the FOMO kick in).

    It appears SOME of those orders have been lumped in (shown by the couple random 1k bumps in numbers) but we have plenty of others left to factor in yet

    You are onto something. The longer this takes, the more on the fence I am and the more I start to think

    I’m hoping the push from Taiwan and Japan plus places like BBTS put this over 20K. If not, I’m sure 3P will make that shield plus other “fixes”. The important part is he funded.

    It seem like we got a brief spike now that the V-Lock Canon is a GO.

    Did BBTS put up PO's? If they did I missed it. I know TF Source did.
