    In the Manga, Victory Leo is a completely new transformer, built by Jan's father, who is made out of a brand new metal that can resist Deathsaurus's Metal Destroying cannon. After Jan's parent's die, Victory Leo adopts Jan's Older sister Patty while Star Saber Adopts Jan.

    feels like a kinda dubious decision to let a guy who just came into existence adopt a kid tbh

    Yes and no? Japanese continuity for sure is different than the US, and I'm not an expert. But it's much longer that the US, for sure.
    The cartoons are canon, so the "official" origin is that Victory Leo is transtector of optimus prime, aka God Ginrai, aka the stolen upgrade designed for optimus.
    At the end of the Japanese masterforce, all the robot bodies the humans were using came alive, and left earth.
    The op body started to fail so they had to put victorys mind/soul/spark in a new experimental body. He woke up and pretty much nearly killed everyone.
    And just like that, the optimus prime confusion was gone .
    But hasbro didn't think we could handle an optimus prime body who wasn't actually optimus prime so we got Powermaster prime

    Basically for Japan the manga doesn't count. The transformers have had the same continuity from 1985 until.. Now.

    I actually prefer Powermaster Optimus over Ginrai. Specifically the marvel comic version. He died, he was rebuilt in a new body. easy to follow

    You aren't wrong. You need a road map to follow the time line. I just wish the US cartoon didn't end when it did.

    I never really had much interest, but I actually think I'm going to make it a point to watch Victory. The more I follow this thread the more excited I get for the two I backed. May as well get the full experience and watch the source material.

    I prefer my Optimus Prime as a 19 year old Japanese trucker with fantastic hair and a heart of gold. It just brings a slightly different dimension to the character.

    Over 15,000 backed! I feel good about our chances on unlocking all the tiers!

    I feel like at this point it’s almost a guarantee we hit the next two tiers.



    Don’t make me eat my words

    The extra tiers would definitely be nice, but I won't be upset if we don't hit any of the others (not that I think we won't, the stand at least should be guaranteed).

    Flight stand remains underrated IMO.

    I believe the flight stand is guaranteed to be funded. The question is will the remaining bulk of non pulse preorders be over 5000? I'd say it's certainly likely. But we'll have to wait and see.

    It is a very good looking stand! I hope we hit it but wouldn’t be super disappointed if we don’t.


    Though I doubt that the international preorders combined will total under 2 000 so I think it is guaranteed.

    Tier 2 seems to be a guarantee, but tier 3 would be little tricky. I do have faith that it will reach tier 3 once those international number come in. Those international orders will be the determined factor though if we reach a 100% funded Victory Saber.

    Tier 2- 1,975 backers away
    Tier 3- 4,975 backers away

    I had the PX version and he was able to use his nosecone as a shield. Can the haslab version do that as well

    i could be wrong and confusing him with TR Overlord
