    That would actually be kind of cool if they did that. Not only would it give people who missed out a second chance to get Star Saber, but it also won't piss off everyone who already backed it by devaluing the figure they already spent a shit ton of money on.

    It feels like the safest bet because of that. Who knows if Hasbro does as in the end it is their choice

    Wow we’re back to talking about a potential other one/ rerelease. Amazing.

    In other news the Victory Saber started saying “estimated shipping winter 2022” rather than “funded”. So that’s good! Now there’s no doubt that, assuming nothing goes wrong, we should get em in our hands next year.


    Loving the new video with the bisexual lighting! One thing I’d never paid too much attention was the fact that the back of the Saber jet does not jut out as much as the MP. Love to see it!!! That was one of my least favourite aspects of the MP Star Saber designs, so I’m happy it’s done differently here.

    Hell yes. Someone brought up an intriguing spam carbonara recipe. The cat thread from yesterday sadly did not last long

    New video on the Haslab Victory Saber page! It was put there yesterday I believe.

    As for the bisexual lighting it just is lighting in the bisexual flag colours! And as the video has blue and purple lights it fits the description!

    Chestforce works for me. It sounds the same and gets the same idea across while avoiding potential scandal from using "breastforce"

    How long does it usually take for retailers to offer HasLab products for sale? Missed the window to grab one due to other priorities, so probably will need to pay the BBTS markup.

    Never. HasLab projects only have the one backing window. Other than that, they never go on-sale at regular retailers.

    Why can't colors just be colors?

    He's not talking about them being offered for "retail", but in how the retailers have offered "second-hand" copies of HasLab product in the past.

    I don’t think a limited run as a generations selects on their website as a pulse exclusive is a bad idea. Give people the chance to get one if they want it, but still create the idea that this is still a hard to get figure if you didn’t properly back it.

    I would imagine you would have to reach out to the different online retailers and see if they have a wait-list you could be put on.

    I hope that it shows Hasbro that Fandom is willing to embrace JP characters.

    "bisexual lighting" started as basically a lighthearted meme amongst a lot of LGBTQ+ people whenever pink and blue lights, mixing to create purple in the middle, is used in movies, videos, art, etc. for like striking visuals, because it happens to be the colors of the bisexual flag

    My guy I didn’t come up with the term. It’s just bisexual lighting? It doesn’t change the colours. Same way you can describe lighting as warm if there’s lots of reds and oranges. Doesn’t make it less red and orange it just is a descriptor.
