Ok good for you then.
Or a Victory reboot in comic form.
my prediction for this figure is that victory leo is going to be complained about its awkward flight mode, saber's base mode is the one mode NOBODY's going to use aside from reviewers on youtube showing it, people are going to complain how the front of the jet mode for saber swivels to much because it's on a round peg in robot mode. Star saber's joints will either be friction joints, (which will cause some major problems) or be ratchet joints that probably will be pretty good by themselves, but will cause some problems in combined mode. There's going to be some 3rd party version, either an upgrade kit or a figure itself that will be extremely controversial.
Man, a modern one-shot Victory comic would be SO DOPE!
So the final amount of backers was 22,708. I had guessed 25,000. I was off by 2,292
People were already complaining about how hollow the figure looked with his thighs. I think third party groups are already planning on fixing that.
It was near my best case scenario in the 23,000-30,000 range. Which is good enough in my view.
Yeah interested. I was wondering if you/he had more fun gif creations of Transformers.
Hell yeah I know of him.
Great MP Star Saber gif sir Timelord. I have the MP too, but I am super interested in getting something from HasLab. If nothing else because I've missed out on all the previous HasLab offerings. But also I watched Victory and know the characters, and iys cool to have Victory Leo aka Convoy rebuilt. Plus it's a different scale and size probably made with high end materials. Unlike the joints on my MP. STILL love the MP though.
No. Closest I ever got was the Unrustables, and only one
Honestly, I can’t say I’m disappointed with the numbers. This has been the third most successful (non HeroQuest) Haslab. And for a relatively obscure character from a brand that definitely isn’t as mainstream popular as its competition (Marvel and Star Wars) I say that’s pretty good!
Victory Leo's 'flight mode' is pretty much only required to combine with Star Saber in vehicle mode. And it's accurate to the original Victory toy and cartoon too, so you really can't complain.
Well, the original's base mode was kinda shoehorned in anyway. But this version beats out the older version by including the shield, which can attach to the base mode to make it look a little more convincing as a defensive emplacement.
The Saber jet front/sword hilt also has two tabs in addition to the peg to secure it. See the attached pic.
Hasbro's made Jetfire and Sky Lynx, which are comparable in size to Victory Saber, and they've also gotten experience on loadbearing joints from producing Titan class figures. Even Unicron had no problem holding poses, so I don't think we should worry about this.
3Ps make upgrade kits. It's what they do. There will probably be some gap filler kits, and maybe an extra part that lets the V-Lock cannon sit in the center (if it can't do so by itself; my guess is that it can). But does that mean Victory Saber will be a bad figure? Absolutely not. Even some of the most universally praised figures have upgrade kits made of them, so it's not exactly a knock against quality.
Isn't there still a chance for the number to go up with various 3p/international orders yet to be added in?
Mfw I love Star Saber base mode.
That's usually the case, dunno when that will be though.
Yeah, I'm waiting for more info from Pulse on a final number. They'll email the backer group with more details and progress reports!
In the end I decided against putting the money up for a year in these uncertain times. Good work though in achieving the goal.
And now we wait for the shipping notice.
This smells like trollbait. Stating the obvious - but for anyone new to this sort of exclusive, this will NOT be available in stores unless you purchase from BBTS or another site who ordered through HasLab on their own.
Yep, trolling. Why you would do this, is a bit strange.
Perhaps if more positive reviews or posts could outweigh the negatives, it might reduce some of the complaints. I think at this point we know majority of internet/social media users default to using the mediums for complaining.
I can't wait to enjoy my new stuff.
People will complain, so be it. I’m sure there will be things to criticize but overall so far it seems good. There’s not much you can do about people complaining. It’ll happen. I plan on ignoring it. I’ll probably respond, though.
On a related note how many backers did Unicron get officially ? They took those numbers down shortly after achieving funding, almost like they were ashamed of not getting more. I remember it took till near the end to achieve funding for him, but the numbers kept ticking up for days afterwards , as if they were adding on tallies from special groups like 3P sellers and international orders.
