HasLab Victory Saber Reveals Color Images

If you haven’t checked out the Victory Saber HasLab figure yet, Hasbro just dropped color images of the set which may just convince you to crowdfund this figure from the beloved Japanese series!

The crowdfunding campaign ends in just over 3 weeks, and as of now is nearly to 9,000 of its needed 11,000 backers, which is a great sign that this figure will get produced, especially considering how affordable it is compared to other HasLab campaigns. Will it make its stretch goals of the V-Lock Cannon and display stand? Who knows, but given how the past HasLab campaigns have gone lately, it does seem likely; and there’s one mystery stretch goal still to be revealed that may help drive interest further.

More details and all the color goodness within…

New Interview with Erik Burnham, Beast Wars writer

Not all familiar faces

From the Dynamic Forces website comes a new intereview with Erik Burnham, writer on the upcoming IDW Beast Wars title, in which he discusses the 25th anniversary of Beast Wars, a look back at the television show, and a look forward at the new series. It will start at a familiar place, but expect changes going forward.

The Predacons steal an artifact called the Golden Disk, hop in a time travel-capable ship, and flee to work on their plans. They’re pursued by a Maximal ship, followed to another time, and after a little bit of a fight… crash on a primitive planet. This is how the show opens; this is also how the comic opens (more or less). We’re starting at a place familiar to the longtime fans, but every little change we make diverges from the original storyline.

Follow the link for the full interview. Beast Wars #1 is due in stores on February 3rd.
