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…
Up until now, the campaign has only showed off graymodel designs, even the renders were gray. Now here’s those looks at what the colors will look like, and it’s a heck of a faithful deco to the classic Transformers: Victory character. Keep in mind, some of the images below do include the currently-revealed stretch goal items.
Here’s the official details:

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.
Itâ€™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 figureâ€™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 didnâ€™t stop there. In Transformers: Victory Episode 30: â€œThe Tide is Turned! The Ultimate Weapon, the Victory Unification,â€ 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!
