It is official, the HasLab Transformers Victory Saber basic figure set has been funded at 11,607 backers just now. Making it to the next few Teirs in just over 10 days remains to be seen, but it is looking better all the time. This project will be a real dud without the V-Lock cannon and possibly dysfunctional without the stand. Those of you have been waiting for some progress, now is the to get on board and back this project now at Hasbro Pulse.
Thanks for this update. I'm really on the fence with this.
I have the Masterpiece Star Saber. And I have a "stand-in"/"third-party" "Victory Leo" (once I realized Takara wasn't going to make an official one I picked one up). With both figures I have the "V Lock Cannon", stands, and the Shield. And they're sized at a commander class scale which fits nicely with the CW Liokaiser and the other Combiner wars figures. The MP-Star Saber is scaled weird in that it fits better next to the generations line then the masterpiece line. Anyway, Now that the haslab Victory Saber is funded I have to decide if having a smaller and probably lesser quality version is worth the $180, and this is just to have the Haslab.
If this thing doesn't have all the tier accessories then it's going to be incomplete compared to what I already have. Spending $180 on an incomplete figure when I have very nice versions already is not logical. Even if it's fully funded it's smaller and it won't have the small sword for Saber.
I just wish that this was some generations pre-order. My guess is that Hasbro is testing the waters on Victory. They probably have concepts for the new Legacy line and are trying to decide if they want to produce Victory figures. The release of this figure could coincide with several other Victor figures and then this Victory Saber will be the centerpiece of the Legacy Line.
It's just frustrating in that Unicron was special: the largest Transformer ever, closest thing ever released to a proper Unicron was the Armada Unicron from 20 years ago. Comparing the Unicrons I could rationalize the high price and the crowd funding route. But it's difficult to rationalize this Haslab Victory Saber project when comparing it to the Masterpiece Star Saber the the "Victory Leo".
I also wish I had more than another few days to decide.
