UPDATE: Hasbro has posted all new images of Victory Saber in beautiful color on their site. I have mirrored them in the gallery at the bottom of this news item!
For weeks now fans have watched the HasLab campaign for Victory Saber slowly go up after an initial strong start. For those who were nervous the campaign would not fund, international orders have helped boost the numbers and as of this morning Victory Saber is funded! At the time of this writing there are now over 11,600 backers and hopefully more will come so we can reach the stretch goals! If you want to participate in this campaign, head over to HasLab now and throw your hat in the ring. Let's say GO!
In a surprise post, the Official Transformers Facebook Page has posted about an interview with Voice Actor Christopher Sabat at 2PM EDT today. Sabat's past credits include being a voice director on Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker and more. Interestingly, Sabat has no known Transformers voice acting or directing credits to his name which makes this interview a bit of a mystery.
Hasbro Pulse has updated its Victory Saber HasLab page with two of the three stretch goals for the campaign! The first will be the "V-Lock Cannon" and Blast Effects which will be unlocked at 14,000 backers. The second is a display stand to be unlocked at 17,000 backers. Check out the original Tweet and images below:
Earlier today Hasbro updated their Facebook Page with an announcement about a "Fan First Friday" coming this week! However, the most interesting part of the post is found in their summary text which includes the phrase "Let's say GO!". This phrase was one of the catch phrases used by Star Saber in the Transformers Victory series!
