Toy News: HasLab Victory Saber Updates Shows Off Engineering Sample

After many months without a significant update, we finally get to see where the HasLab Victory Saber project stands.  Hasbro has posted a video that gives fans a look at the Victory Saber Engineering Sample and every mode for both Star Saber and Victory Leo.  I took some notes while watching the video and you'll find over 50 screen caps in the gallery below.  You can watch the video on Hasbro's site here.

Toy News: "Legacy" Wreck 'N Rule Bulkhead Pre-Orders Are Up

We're on Day Four of the Legacy Wreck 'N Rule reveals and this time we have Voyager Class Bulkhead from Legacy featuring a camo deco and an additional hammer weapon (which itself might suggest a future redeco/retool as Breakdown!).  Transformers Prime Bulkhead was a member of that show's version of the Wreckers, so this is a fun nod to that character.  Bulkhead is $33.99 and is due for release on November 1, 2022.  You can preorder now via my Amazon affiliate link or

Toy News: Takara Tomy Reveals "Studio Series" Arcee

The folks over at Takara Tomy Mall have posted a new reveal: Studio Series Arcee! No, not the one from the Bumblebee Movie but rather one geared towards being part of the Studio Series 86 line! This Arcee appears to be a redeco and retool of the Thrilling 30 figure, and surprisingly not the recent Earthrise/Kingdom release! This is cool in my book since I consider this the superior figure to use as a foundation.
