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…
