    Its honestly because of bandai and all their stands I've become so disillusioned with stands :lol  Action bases, tamashii stands, and so on.

    Is that how it works? I remember reading all the haslab or pulse stuff goes via TTMall orders.

    Dammit. I have a car repair so now I have to cancel my order since they want the payment now.
    Now I'm sad.

    See you on the aftermarket I hope..

    Sorry to hear that. Unexpected life moments can suck. Hope you can get one down the line.

    I don't know of any weight issues, I display them side by side in their robot modes ; ) For that purpose Simba works fine : )

    This is probably gonna sound like a stupid question, but did you need to be a backer in order to get the items from tier 1-3 or would I be able to get them when Victory Saber drops?

    Um, hate to tell you, but when he does drop ONLY backers will be receiving him. He will NOT be available for sale ever again.

    As far as we know, the entire thing is backer only. Hasbro has yet to sell any of their HasLab items outside of the backers. That being said, anyone that backed would get all stretch goals (including retailers/resellers).

    Not a stupid question, I understand the backer thing may be a little confusing. For anyone who didn’t back this, they will need to resort to the BST thread on here, eBay, or any other secondary market that may have bought some to resell to get a star saber. Since those who backed him will get all 3 tiers, when you buy a copy from someone selling theirs, unless they have some reason to keep some of the tier items, you’ll be able to get everything.

    unfortunately this does mean you’ll be paying a fairly large secondary price to get star saber. But you will get one that has all the tier items

    hope this helps! And don’t be afraid to ask questions here:)

    The wait for this is going to be excruciating. Haven’t been as excited for a release since MP-44 and Fans Hobby Armada Prime which both lived up to my expectations big time.

    He is so going to need some after market accessories starting with some more sizes of sword blades - ideally in metal.

    The fact that this question exists seems to me yet another reason we should stop using the word "crowdfunding" to describe what goes on with HasLab.

    Because with a traditional crowdfund, the idea that a non-backer can pick the item up later from the original supplier (admittedly not necessarily at the backers' price) really isn't unreasonable at all. But for those who've followed HasLab, we all know that those just don't work the same way.

    I'm perfectly fine with Deathzarus being a Commander Class* incidentally - I also don't mind if they sell his Breastmasters as seperate releases too it make them able to make him better as a single figure.

    *I mean Jetfire style Commander Class - Not Rodimus Style Commander Class.

    Wow 27k total. That is insane. Who would have thought star saber would be so popular except for outside of Japan. Hopefully now they will release deathsaurus and a true liokaiser. Deathsaurus as a commander class and maybe liokaiser as a Titan class with all 6 destrons! Fingers crossed.

    So just a thought, I've been trying to find a back pic of Star Saber, and so far no luck. Looking at the base mode and the robot mode. I'm thinking the helmet that goes over is just going to be a part you pop off and place on top for the head. I'm not seeing an arm like say on the OG or Robot Master figure.

    I wonder why the international backers weren't accounted for earlier. There were like 7,000 of them.

    As much as I want those, that will take even more time.
