    While it is very much up in the air, I just have some hope because of the Star Convoy and Super Megatron hasbro put out not long ago. Maybe we'll get the evil bird counterpart to our heroic jet.

    There should be in one of the digital render videos. But I don’t think there is a back pic of the prototype.

    They never show the back of Star Saber. They show Victory Saber, but Victory Leo makes it hard to see anything like a sub arm or hinge like the other figures.

    Yeah, not looking like there's a swing arm for the helmet. But honestly, I'm fine with that. It was a hopelessly fiddly mechanic on the MP, and I don't need to see it again.

    If you go to the Haslab page and go to 32/38 you will see a digital render of Star Saber’s back.

    Do keep in mind that the "current" Star Convoy and Super Megatron are from certain molds instead of original like Haslab's Victory Saber.

    I'm aware. I'm also aware that hasbro can do anything with the right amount of money and interest.

    Not much. Barring any new developments, we should expect Pulsecon to reveal what was correct and what was not.

    The only way you'd see that is if a backer decides to part a set out...which TBH, crazier things have happened. We've seen may of the Combiner sets parted out (and why someone might buy 1 part of say...God Neptune...seems odd, buy hey..)

    Most likely I could see someone who bought multiple sets to display in multiple modes selling off the duplicate Micromasters...

    I'd be more into a Liokaiser made from deluxe class bots. If anything so we can have a deluxe scale Leozack that has a head that can fit in Deathsaurus's hand.

    MP Star Saber actually has a pull-out little crane arm that you can use to maneuver the helmet over Saber's head, for "perfect transformation" functionality. But it's just cramped and finicky to use. It's a cute thing you'll probably try out once, and then not bother with ever again because it's just annoying in practice.

    Yup. I know. I own one. How else to do so without parts forming? That is being able to do a 360 head turn with his "battle up" being permanently stuck. Small sacrifices though I don't see the big issue with a little bit of parts forming.
