The HasLab campaign for Deathsaurus continues to move forward. Up until now we have only seen grey model images of the Destron leader. Now thanks to Hasbro Pulse on Facebook we have our first look at digitally colored renders! These images give us an idea of the deco and tampos that will be applied to the figure for its final release.

In the Japanese exclusive series Victory, fans were introduced to the Emperor of Destruction known as Deathsaurus! This powerful Destron/Decepticon transformed from a powerful robot to a giant
Space Chicken Kaiju and was partnered with two "Breastmasters" Tigerbreast & Eaglebreast. During the the Prime Wars trilogy fans had the chance to vote for Deathsaurus being made into (presumably) a Leader Class figure at the time, but that never came to pass.
Today at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 Hasbro unveiled the box for the HasLab Victory Saber! Hasbro put a lot of work into the packaging. Here are some highlights from the video:
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.
Hasbro Pulse has posted an update for Victory Saber backers! This time out the focus is on the box art progress for the set. The update reveals that Transformers artist extraordinaire, Guido Guidi has been commissioned to create this artwork. It will also incorporate the classic grid lines from the cartoon's opening credits making for a modern take on the characters with retro elements.
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!

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.
