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…

More G1 reissues on the way: Cassettes!

After offering a number of classic Generation One figures in fairly authentic replica packaging, Wal Mart is apparently planning to continue these releases. Some of Soundwave’s cassette minions will apparently be hitting the store shelves soon, so keep your eyes open.

The report offers these details:

Another great G1 reissue is coming to the market. Via TF-Factory on Weibo, we can share for you images of the G1 Ravage & Rumble and Laserbeak & Frenzy reissues.


These are sure the perfect complement for the G1 Soundwave & Buzzaw reissue revealed a while ago. Soundwave’s cassettes come in classic G1 2-packs with no differences compared to the original releases (Rumble is the red guy, Frenzy is blue guy as in the original toys), but Laserbeak seems to have shorter laser guns.

There is no information about price or release date at this time.

Thanks to TFW2005 for this story.

New Wal-Mart G1 reissue: Optimus Prime?

Thanks to TFW2005 for the following report. It’s possible that the next Wal-Mart G1 reissue with be Optimus Prime, without his trailer, interestingly. The report came from the Transformers Never Die Facebook group, who shared the image from the 22nd Bahamut Gamer Party 2018. Further facts will be needed to determine if this reissue is headed for the United States or not, but in the meantime this is a very nice possibility for the Transformer collector.

Addition: new pictures available here.
