Hasbro Pulse has announced they have an update for the Transformers HasLab Victory Saber project. They will be hosting a live stream TODAY with voice vctor Christopher Sabat. Chris has worked on numerous animated properties such as Dragon Ball, Fullmetal Alchemist, One-Punch Man, and many more. It is hard not to think they are going to talk about dubbing the original Victory cartoons in conjunction with this project, but we'll have to wait and see at 2pm ET on Twitter (see below).

Live Stream Updates
Christopher Sabat introduction - says he's never heard of the Transformers Victory series before having grown up with just the American Generation 1 series cartoon.
Evan - Toei did the original animation for the first two seasons of Generation 1. Takara decided to animate their own shows with the help of Toei, instead of carrying on with the G1 Season 3/4. Takara did Headmasters and then restarts a new show with new leaders and characters. The Victory series was the introduction of Star Saber / Victory Saber.
Even - Worked with Takara's Hisashi Yuki to develop the Transformers Victory Saber. This is the first time Hasbro has released the figure in the Generations series.
Amanda - People at the Boston Fan Expo were so touched by the Victory Saber, they cried when they saw it.
Recaps of the Victory series and the crowdfunding project that is at currently 8,329 backers for the project. New teirs will unlock at 14k V-Cannon, 17k stand, and 20k TBR backers.

DEVELOPING THE DEFENDER OF JUSTICE
This project is a major first for the Transformers line. This HasLab expands into the Japanese anime side of Transformers that has never come to the U.S. before. With your help, we can finally make this a reality. Who better to be the first Japanese canon Transformers figure by Hasbro than Autobot Star Saber? In the animation, Star Saber and his Autobot crew defend the universe against the evil Decepticons. Outside of Transformers Masterpiece, Star Saber has not had an action figure since 1989. Now, the fearless leader of the Autobots can travel to this side of the galaxy as an action figure inspired by the iconic character from the animated series, complete with 200 deco ops. We need 11,000 backers to fully fund this project.
It’s no secret that Star Saber has some pretty awesome converting modes in the animated series. The team made sure this HasLab project has the ultimate animation accuracy, worthy of his heroic legacy.
The Brain of Courage Brainmaster figure fits inside the chest of the Autobot Saber figure, causing the larger figure’s face to appear. The Autobot Saber figure then converts into Victory Jet mode. Combine Victory Jet mode with the V-Star jet, convert to robot mode, and reveal Autobot Star Saber! Plus, the Victory Leo figure converts between robot and lion modes. But we didn’t stop there. In Transformers: Victory Episode 30: “The Tide is Turned! The Ultimate Weapon, the Victory Unification,” Autobot Star Saber and Victory Leo must put a stop to the threats of Decepticon leader Deathsaurus, fusing together to form the mighty Victory Saber. With this HasLab project, you can re-create the scene! Combine Victory Leo and Autobot Star Saber figures to unleash the awesome power of Victory Saber! With all the play and display possibilities, this is a one-of-a-kind addition to your Transformers collection.
THE HEROIC FEATURES
This HasLab project marks many firsts for Transformers. In addition to being Hasbro’s first Japanese canon Transformers figure, this is the first Brainmaster ever developed by Hasbro. We are also exploring new innovation and articulation for Transformers that have never been done before. The Autobot Star Saber figure features a butterfly joint and the Victory Leo figure has added articulation, giving both high possibility for a variety of display options. The greatest swordsman in the universe also comes with the mighty Sword of Justice.
dubbing the Victory series would be awesome. oh how sweet it would be if they dubbed all 3 japanese series. I absolutely hate trying to watch the show while reading what is being said. Totally ruins the experience when you cant really watch the show because you are reading text.
