At 11am EDT today Hasbro held a Transformers Fan First Friday and officially announced the Victory Saber HasLab Crowdfunding Project! They have been hinting at this for weeks showing off the Victory symbol, but now the project is live and open for funding! Check out the announcement video, product information and digital renders below. Note: the renders are basically placeholders for now and the text description seems to get the size of the two larger figures wrong. Based on the video, Star Saber is most likely a Commander Class sized figure (by today's standards). Also, while the description acknowledges the Masterpiece figure it ignores the Robotmasters one from 2004.
Backing Victory Saber will set you back $179.99 and will stop taking backers at 11:59 PM EST on 10/10/2021. Check out the information, images and video below and then head on over to Hasbro Pulse to back this project!
Limit of 5 per customer.

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 Victory 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. Plus, the team has planned 3 epic tiers to unlock.
TIER 1 UNLOCK AT 14,000
TIER 2 UNLOCK AT 17,000
TIER 3 UNLOCK AT 20,000
It’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 figure’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 didn’t stop there. In Transformers: Victory Episode 30: “The Tide is Turned! The Ultimate Weapon, the Victory Unification,” 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! Combine Victory Leo and Autobot Star Saber figures to unleash the awesome power of Victory Saber!
With all the play and display possibilities, this is a one-of-a-kind addition to your Transformers collection.
THE HEROIC FEATURES
This HasLab project marks many firsts for Transformers. In addition to being Hasbro’s first Japanese canon Transformers figure, this is the first Brainmaster ever developed by Hasbro.
We are also exploring new innovation and articulation for Transformers that have never been done before. The Autobot Star Saber figure features a butterfly joint and the Victory Leo figure has added articulation, giving both high posability for a variety of display options. The greatest swordsman in the universe also comes with the mighty Sword of Justice.
